If you are on instagram and follow feeds on green beauty, you know what a cult favorite this mask has become. Leahlani was a brand that I was not familiar with prior to my participation in social media. With all of the photos of this mask and all of the love expressed for this brand, I knew I wanted to try it. I thought I should start with the Mermaid Mask.
My first impression was…
WOW, it really is that green! It is a beautiful shade of emerald that comes from organic chlorella and spirulina harvested in Hawaii. These two superfoods, along with organic, raw, Hawaiian honey, purify and deeply clean, yet still draw moisture to the skin. This mask is loaded with powerful antioxidants, Vitamins A and C. You get cellular turnover with the micro algae. Sea Buckthorn CO2 helps calm any inflammation, as well as aiding in cellular turnover. The French Green Clay and Sea Clay help draw out any impurities, while balancing and nourishing the skin. Due to the honey base, you get the toning and detoxifying without the tightening and cracking feeling.
I use many different masks during any given week. I have tried some really great ones and some not so not great, but very few WOW me. This mask made a difference in my skin with just one use. I had some spots on my face that were mildly irritated where I had a blemish or 2 (from a detoxifying mask) that were healing but lingering longer than they should have. After using this mask one time, I noticed a change in my skin. The next morning, the redness/irritation was gone, the dry patches were gone and the blemishes were almost completely healed up. I have discovered many great products during my green beauty journey, but very few that give dramatic results. This is one of those products!
Did I mention how pretty the color is of this mask? Because of the honey base, the best way to apply it is with your fingers. It is thick and sticky. After using this mask, I am definitely interested in trying more Leahlani skincare products.
