BareSkin Essentials is a blog as well as a brand by Vidhi V. I have been following her blog for quite some months and believe me you won’t end up reading just one post. There are so many DIY skincare recipes on the blog that you will be spoilt for choices. So the mask which am reviewing is born out of Vidhi’s love for skincare and DIY. But yes, DIY doesn’t mean mixing this and this, but using the right ingredients for a specific purpose. That’s what Vidhi exactly does. Let’s head onto the review of the Skin Mask by BareSkin Essentials.
Brand claims –
This face pack is meant for all sand, any skin that needs TLC and maintain a healthy glow. It is filled with goodness of Almonds, Oats, Saffron, Sandalwood, Amba Haldi and Multani Mitti. This formulation will help you get a healthy glow to your skin with long and regular use.
Ingredients – Almonds, Oats, Saffron, Sandalwood, Amba Haldi and Multani Mitti
Directions for usage – mix with curd, rose water or milk and make a semi thick paste. After mixing let the mask remain for 3-5 minutes for the Saffron to show colour. Apply all over your face and keep for 30-45 minutes. Wash it off with water and moisturise. Use thrice a week.
The mask is packaged in a simple plastic tub with a small accompanying spoon. The packaging is isn’t any fancy but very simple. The mask is dry with all organic ingredients. We need to add milk or water to make a paste.
Coming to the consistency of the mask it is very coarse, because it’s hand pounded. The mask can also double up as an amazing, natural scrub. The mask has saffron strands in it, and I just jumped with joy when I spotted them.
When I first applied the mask the ingredients were a bit big in size so I have put them in a mixer and grinded a bit. The fragrance of mask is exactly like the milk masala we put during Kojagiri full moon 😛😛, yummm yummm. The fragrance is very soothing and relaxing also.
After using the mask as directed, I mixed it with milk and used. The mask takes a lot of time of dry up. While drying it starts giving stretchy feeling and in the meanwhile tightens the pores. The mask gives a glow and softness to the skin. It makes the skin even toned and smooth, so much that I couldn’t keep my hands off my face, everytime I use it. I have used this mask around 3 times a week and thereafter once a week.
I haven’t noticed any lightening effects in acne marks, but since the brand doesn’t claim the mask to do, I didn’t even expect that. With regular use, the texture of my skin has improved, the sensitivity of my nose area has reduced considerably. All in all, a goto mask for skincare addicts who love indulging in organic and natural skincare. As we all know, with natural ingredients we need to be more patient but the effects are long lasting.
