Formula review

What does the product description say?
"Its creamy gel texture comes from mineral-rich and gently exfoliating kaolin clay, and nourishing vitamin E. Plus, our vegan and cruelty-free mask is formulated with activated charcoal to give pores an extra deep clean."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

What does the product description say?
"Our fragrance-free mask is formulated with collagen-boosting sea kelp and skin-plumping hyaluronic acid for a smooth, even complexion."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": glycerin, sodium hyaluronate.

When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).
