If you're anything like me, the cold weather will be playing HAVOC with your skin!
So this week I tried out one of our favourite new brands- Butt Naked Skin Food - to see if they could help cure our winter skin woes... here's what happened...
Who are Butt Naked?
Made in Melbourne, Butt Naked Skinfood have designed a 100% vegan, natural, organic body care range that is designed for you, because you know life is better in your birthday suit. No need for glamourised gimmicks to keep your skin healthy, glowing and feeling amazing, they keep it simple, they keep it clean... and completely chemical + preservative free.
What do they claim their face masks achieve?
Butt Naked claim that their natural and cruelty free clay face mask range uses organic and plant based ingredients to help prevent ageing like age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage as well as reduce redness, scarring and bacteria. Their vegan range of face skincare is made to refresh, soothe and hydrate with help from favourite friends Hemp, Pink Clay and Nopal Powder.
Packed with antioxidants help to gently exfoliate and soften leaving your skin healthy and rejuvenated. All Butt Naked's face masks are preservative free and made to help nourish and moisturise giving your skin that youthful & radiant glow.
Why Hemp- isn't it just for hippies?
Loaded with antioxidants and Omega 3 from the highest green trio, Hemp, Green Tea and Aloe Vera aid in fighting signs of premature ageing like age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage. It’s anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness, scarring and bacteria.
This Hemp blend will help to soothe and refresh tired, breakout prone faces, leaving your skin nourished without clogging pores. I chose the Hemp mask because I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts.
What did I discover?
The masks are SO easy to use and you get an enormous amount of product for the price. You simply mix 1/2 spoons of powder with a few drops of water and mix it up to make a paste. The instructions suggest you can add a drop of a carrier oil- so I added a splash of Rosehip oil.
As I like to do things to excess- I mixed up two HEAPED spoons and barely made a dent in the jar. The powder mixes easily into a paste (although it does look a lot like swamp water...) and I applied it using an old foundation brush.
The instructions say that you should wait 5-10 minutes for the mask to dry, as I lathered it on thick, it took close to 15-20 minutes to dry completely.
The mask gives you a tingly sensation in the final stages of drying, and when you're ready to wash it off, it is super satisfying moving your face around and feeling all the dried pieces crack off. The mask washes off easily with warm water and left my skin feeling and looking AMAZING!
I will definitely be recommending the mask in store!
