The clay masks I used many moons ago used to crack and flake on my skin well before washing them off of my face. The end result after washing the clay mask off my face was that my skin felt very dry.
Little did I realise back then that I had to keep spritzing the clay masks, that I applied to my face, with a little spring water every few minutes to keep the clay from drying too quickly.
Well times have changed since my first experience with clay masks; as I soon found out once I used a sample of Annmarie Skin Care’s Charcoal Cacao Mask (sent to me for review) which came in a mini jar with a lid.
What I love about Annmarie Skin Care’s Charcoal Cacao Mask is that it has been made for all skin types. It doesn’t dry out my skin when I use it nor do I need to keep misting my face while it draws environmental pollution from the pores of my skin.
After leaving Annmarie’s Charcoal Cacao Mask on my face for ten minutes, I rinsed my face with warm water before wiping away any residue with an organic muslin cloth. My face felt so smooth afterwards.
No worries as you could keep the same cloth for when you use Annmarie’s Charcoal Cacao Face Mask again.
(If you are concerned about staining your muslin cloth, Annmarie sells an organic grey colored bamboo washcloth. Learn more about this naturally colored bamboo washcloth further down.)

A BIT ABOUT THE DYE-FREE PROCESS:
The natural pigment of the Organic Bamboo Washcloth is achieved without any dyes, and they’re all created in a closed loop system. This ensures that all liquid runoff from fabric production is recycled (99.95%) to make more bamboo cellulose instead of being leaked into waterways. This is perhaps the most environmentally-friendly way of making bamboo cellulose and the fibers derived from that cellulose, as it also saves both energy and water. ~ Annmarie Skin Care
