Recently, I was scrolling through Instagram, as I do in every spare minute I have, and I found myself on the page of a new natural skincare company called HELLOSACH.
As soon as I saw their bio stating that they were 100% natural… I was immediately interested! They make a natural face mask that sounded very similar to my Aztec Secret Indian Healing Facial Clay Mask that I love, but with added ‘skin loving’ ingredients such as zinc oxide, allantoin, and salicylic acid.
I have sensitive/oily skin which is very prone to blemishes. I need something that will attack those breakouts, but not upset my skin enough to make it erupt any more!
Fast forward to a pink package through my door, rather quickly might I add, considering it came from Australia. The shipping was only $5AUD, roughly £2.50. The product itself was $18.95AUD, so about £9.30. (You can also get 10% off with my exclusive discount code HELLOSTLOS10)*
I opened the package and was pleased to see it was a resealable pack, and that the packaging was waterproof.Once I opened the sachet, I was slightly concerned that there was not much inside especially as the label says this makes only 4 masks. I did as the packaging instructed, and still have waaaay more than 4 masks left! Bonus 🙂
I started off by cleansing my face, I love La Roche-Posay Effaclar foaming gel. It works perfectly for my skin!Next I started to construct my face mask. I’m not going to lie, I kind of love it when face masks come as a powder and you have to add the water yourself. It takes me back to when I was a kid and would make potions out of mum’s bath products!
To make the mask, it says to use a heaped teaspoon of powder and mix with water until you achieve the desired consistency.The picture above was one heaped teaspoon with roughly 3 teaspoons of water. This resulted in slightly too much product for my face so in future I’ll also put it on my neck, or just use a flat teaspoon and make the product go further!
The consistency was really nice, it was thick, smooth (with a small amount of grainy bits) and easy to apply.
I left the product on for about 10 minutes. By then it was completely dry and felt very tight on my face. (Though not as extreme as the Aztec Clay mask! It was a nice change.)
Washing it off was okay, face masks are always a pain to take off I find! I always think they are such a good idea, so I put them on, feel all fancy for about 2 minutes, and then sit there and dread taking it off for the rest of the time! Anybody else feel the same way?
The small granules felt nice. Not too abrasive.
After it was all washed off, my skin was a teeny tiny bit flushed, (though, again, not as crazy as the Aztec clay!) it felt really smooth and not too dried out.
I would absolutely recommend this mask,the price is affordable, the ingredients are great, and it’s simply a lovely addition to my collection of face masks!
