(CONTEST ALERT!! See down below for details about our awesome Woodlot giveaway)
From sheet masks to dry masks to bubble masks, we’ve tried them all. But lately, We’ve been obsessing over a powder mask on a weekly basis. Some friends at Woodlot recommended their Rejuvenating Green Tea Clay Mask so I went for it and after testing it out for a few weeks, I think I’ve officially converted to powder. Here’s why you might want to try it out:
Active Ingredients and Longer Shelf life
In your typical liquid facial product, the ingredients have already been activated, which is why most only last for 6 months to one year. In a dry powder form, the ingredients become activated when we choose to by mixing it with water. You end up using less so it has a longer shelf life.
Depending on your skin type or skin issues, a powder mask formula allows you to customize your mask. You can mix it with bases other than water like an antibacterial, apple cider vinegar, honey or avocado.
Less chance for irritation
Because the formula is dry, there are almost no preserving or synthetic ingredients that could potentially irritate the skin.
Currently loving: Woodlot Rejuvinating Green Tea Clay Mask
Check out these different ways you can use this stuff:
Recommended for normal to slightly oily complexions use our mask with water. Apply thin layer to skin. Gently remove with warm water. * For sensitive skin, do a patch test first.
A gently purifying yet hydrating solution for normal to dry complexions. Mix 1 tbsp of mask with 1 tbsp of raw honey and apply as normal. Gently remove in circular motions with a wash, wet washcloth.
With plain yogurt
Mix 1 tbsp yogurt with 1 tbsp of mask. The lactic acid in yogurt will help dissolve dead skin and tighten pores. Gentle, cooling option for sensitive skin.
With nourishing facial toner
A gently purifying yet hydrating solution for all complexions. Mix 1 tbsp of mask with 1 tbsp of Facial Toner (or until preferred consistency is achieved) and apply as normal. Gently remove in circular motions with warm water, or warm, wet, wash cloth.
How often should you apply?
It’s recommended to use once a week for most skin types. If you have sensitive skin, it’s encouraged to do a patch test first.
What are the benefits?
Detoxifying colloidal clay and rejuvenating green tea make this mask the perfect addition to prep and prime your skin. The vitamin-rich ingredients and a pore-minimizing formula leaves skin feeling refreshed.

This mask is made naturally without GMOs, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic colours, dyes or fragrances. It’s 100% eco-friendly, vegetarian and never tested on animals.
