For someone who seems to be perpetually rushed and running late throughout the day, I’ve often shied away from face masques that require more than a minute or two. This month, I experienced Jacq’s Organics Green Smoothie Scrub & Masque which conversely made me rethink my longstanding avoidance of long-wear masque routines.
When I first opened the container, the scent I experienced was mainly the mint, ginger and rosemary notes that are included in its ingredients. As with any masque, application included creating a paste with warm water and applying to my face and the contour of where my chin meets my neck. As painstaking as it was to have to wait the recommended 10-15 minutes the first time around, the end (result) truly justified the means. My face felt so fresh and the skin was visibly tighter, i.e. smaller pores, reduced blemishes and vanquished puffiness I experience under my eyes. This product is vegan and cruelty-free, and chock-full of ingredients I can feel good about including organic almond meal, kelp, bamboo-activated charcoal powder, and spearmint oil, to name a few.
