Reviva Labs: Hawaiian Seaweed Beauty Mask

Hello ladies,

I have been using Hawaiian Seaweed Beauty Mask from Reviva Labs since the summer. This mask offers a blend of kaolin and bentonite clays with skin rejuvenating sea minerals. It's a fantastic balancing treatment and pore cleanser for all skin types.

Luna Pink Swirl Hibiscus. These blooms are gigantic. The largest is about eight inches in diameter.

Hawaiian Seaweed Beauty Mask feels like a classic facial treatment. Wearing this mask calls to mind a vintage icon with her hair swept up in a towel while lounging in a plush bathrobe. The mask even has a pale green tint from the seaweed.

This product would be so much fun for a family beauty night. I could easily imagine watching a movie with my teenage nieces and giving each other at home facials. It can also be used directly after the Light Skin Peel for a professional style treatment.

I apply a medium to heavy coat over cleansed skin and let the mask cure for about a half hour. What impresses me is Hawaiian Seaweed Beauty Mask doesn't dehydrate my skin the way some clay masks can. The kaolin and bentonite clays are well proportioned to extract impurities without over drying my skin. I tend to use this mask before bedtime. My skin is noticeably softer upon waking. I feel like it helps me get true beauty sleep.

The ingredients include: Purified Water, Hawaiian Seaweed Extract, Kaolin, Bentonite, Glycerin, Lubrajel, Wheat Germ Oil, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitol, Essential Oil Fragrance, Mica, Chromium Oxide Greens, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, and Citric Acid.

Seaweed is a natural source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. It contains Vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, E, and K. It also offers beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, niacin, iron, manganese, phosphorous, zinc, folic acid and pantothenic acid. Using products containing seaweed is great way to deliver healing nutrients to the skin.

Beneficial for sensitive skin, kaolin is the gentlest clay available. It exfoliates while stimulating blood circulation, surfacing a healthy glow. Kaolin clay contains calcium, magnesium, silica and zinc. Because kaolin treats the skin without drawing oil, it is a favorable choice for dry skins. It is useful for healing inflammation and treating acne.

Sourced from volcanic ash, bentonite clay is a natural skin purifier. It helps dislodge the standard pore clogging debris and oil. It's medicinal properties go further to remove free radicals, pesticides, heavy metals and toxins. Living in a major city, I really appreciate bentonite for protecting my skin from the harmful agents of pollution.

If you are looking for a gentle, skin purifying clay mask, I can recommend Hawaiian Seaweed Beauty Mask. It's a great way to deep clean your pores and add a bit of vintage glamour to your skin care routine.
