My first post (in English) is going to be about my all-time favourite face mask.
I have mixed type of skin, despite my 30 years of age, I still have acne. My forehead and nose can get extremely dry (I live in Paris and I guess polution contributes to the dryness of my skin). I also have extremely sensitive skin so, I get spots with almost any type of oily component in creams or make-up.
I have always used face masks. I have tried everything there is to try: corean masks, nose white strips, peeling type of masks, tea tree oil ones… but, my favourite had always been Glamglow.
I started the change into natural products by using homemade deodorant, toothpaste and shampoos. I had bought some ingredients for the toothpaste that I had never used before, one of them was charcoal. To be honest, I didn’t really like the toothpaste, so I found myself stuck with these ingredients I had never used before: charcoal and white clay. One day, I remembered my dearest glamglow, checked the ingredients online and I thought I could give it a try with these (until that moment, useless) ingredients.
So, here we go:
- 1 tsp of activated charcoal
- 1 tsp of kaolin white clay
- 1 tsp of marshmallow root powder (optional)
All we do is mix it all with water and that’s it!
How do I use it? I previously wash my face, then I exfoliate it (try honey and sugar or grinded coffee, its an amazing exfoliator!) and then i put the mask on my face. I let it dry and then wash it off my face.
How do I feel after using it? My pores are unclogged and the skin is extremely soft thanks to the marshmallow root powder (it is one of my all time favourite natural ingredient, I use it on facial and hair cosmetics!)
What I most like about these ingredients is that they can be used for several recipes. You will get to discover them in further posts.

All the best!
