When I tell you I’ve never used an entire product down to the very last drop and then repurchased it, I mean it. Unfortunately for my wallet, my ADHD spans way beyond not being able to sit still for long into my beauty routine as well, rendering it near impossible for me to finish an entire product let alone stick with it long enough to see results in my skin… until i tried Herbivore’s Blue Tansy mask. Herbivore’s Blue Tansy gives me all the feels – that is, cooling, tingling, and relaxing.
This mask is an all-natural gel mask that is, just as the name suggests, blue. Its ingredients include natural AHAs and BHAs (fruit enzymes and white willow bark) to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin and penetrate deep to unclog pores, aloe vera, and blue tansy oil, which is an anti-inflammatory and combats redness.
One thin layer of this mask on your face is all you need. The light, gel texture is delightfully cooling at once – and it smells delicious! After a few minutes, you might start to feel a tingling sensation, which is completely normal. The first few times I used this the tingling was more intense, but as my skin got used to the ingredients the tingling became less and less noticeable. After about 15-20 minutes, you’ll feel the mask starting to tighten and dry. Once it’s completely dry all you have to do is rinse with warm water to reveal your newly glowing skin underneath. Even though it doesn’t help to immediately clear breakouts, my overall skin tone is always clearer and more even after using this – I’m convinced I even see a hint of natural shimmer in my skin after masking. I like to use this mask about twice a week – I’ll light a candle, get cozy, and cover my face in Blue Tansy for the ultimate way to relax and unwind right before bed.
In the past 3-4 months that I’ve been using this mask, I’ve definitely noticed a difference in skin clarity and reduced redness with continued use – it’s safe to say I’ll be using this mask year-round until forever.
