Once a week (mostly Sundays), I sit down in front of my vanity, take a good look at my skin, be horrified by my blackheads and pores, and ultimately decide that it’s time for a face mask. If you’ve read my Rraw PH Haul post, you’ll know that I picked up the Rraw PH Moroccan Clay Mask. I’ve been using it consistently, and in this post, I’m going to share my thoughts on and experience with it.
According to Rraw PH, the Moroccan Clay Mask is effective in improving skin clarity, and best used as a treatment for acne. It dries and pulls blackheads to the surface, tones the skin, and re-balances dry, flaky skin with regular use. It comes in powdered form and can be mixed with water, honey, or yogurt. It’s also organic and cruelty-free.
As I’ve said before, I’m not a huge fan of masks that I have to mix myself. I think this is because I used to use the cult-favorite Aztec Healing Clay Mask, and that one was extremely difficult to mix, especially with water. It was super messy, and I was completely turned off by it. I was anticipating the same difficulty with the Moroccan Clay Mask, but to my surprise, it mixed very easily with both water and honey, and it became a nice thick paste very quickly. It comes in a fairly small container, but you only need half a table spoon of the powder to make a mixture that will cover your whole face. I’ve had it for quite some time now, and there’s still a good amount of it left.
I like to use the mask mixed with water (usually less than half a table spoon), and I rinse it off when it’s completely dried on my face. It gets tight, and I usually feel my face pulsate under it. After rinsing, I notice that I have less blackheads, and that some of them peak at the surface, ready to be extracted. The mask is very good at detoxifying the skin and ridding it of excess sebum and blackheads, BUT it always leaves my skin extremely dry. I usually have to follow up this mask with my Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. It’s a great combo, and when I wake up the next day, my skin looks clear and feels smooth. If you have dry skin to start, I’d recommend mixing the mask with honey instead of water.
Overall, the Rraw PH Moroccan Clay Mask an incredible mask and it always blows me away every time I use it. It’s also really affordable at Php249 a tub. I love supporting local brands, so when I use this up, I’d probably repurchase it, or try out the other different masks that they have.
