Product Review: 'Pacific Exfoliating Moisture Mask' by True Nature Botanicals
I love all of TNB's products, and every time I try something new it quickly becomes a new favorite of mine! Their Pacific Exfoliating Mask is no exception! What continues to impress me about True Nature Botanicals, is how artfully and scientifically their products are formulated in order to deliver safe, natural and highly effective results.
VOGUE Magazine calls TNB, "Certified Chic... The best new all-natural beauty brands."
This lightweight, creamy-gel textured mask features a unique combination of ingredients that leave your complexion feeling and looking bright, nourished and glowing. It's ideal for all skin types, including dry, aging, blemish and acne prone. I have pretty sensitive skin that tends to get drier in the harsher seasons such as winter and summer, and didn't experience any irritation with this mask.
Here's what makes TNB's Pacific Exfoliating Moisture Mask so powerful...
Lactic Acid: "This alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) is an effective exfoliant that also has significant anti-aging benefits, such as stimulating production of natural ceramides and hyaluronic acid to prevent moisture loss. In addition to its humectant benefits, it also helps lighten skin by inhibiting melanin-triggering enzymes."
"When it comes to exfoliants, lactic acid is the only alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) we use. That’s because it’s an exfoliating, moisturizing powerhouse: it removes dead skin cells without irritating, has humectant and skin whitening properties, and increases production of natural ceramides to prevent moisture loss." —TNB
Avocado Butter: "Rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, protein, pantothenic acid, and fatty acids, avocado butter is also replete with emollient properties that ensure your skinstays soft and pliable even after a deep exfoliation treatment."
Solanum Tuberosum: This potato tuber contains high amounts of catecholase, a potent skin-lightening enzyme.
TNB never uses any fillers, water or toxins in their products, which is another reason why everything is so effective and potent. This mask contains zero harmful ingredients such as glycol acid, which often irritates skin. They also leave out all and any potential carcinogens used as skin lighteners like hydroquinone, and absolutely zero drying agents such as alcohol, fragrances, or toxic preservatives.
Application: Massage onto clean, dry skin and let sit for 2-5 minutes. The shorter amount of time is recommended for more sensitive complexions; however I leave it on for the full 5 minutes and don't ever feel any irritation. If you do have more sensitive skin, try leaving it on for 2-3 mins the first few times, then try 4-5 mins if your skin feels okay! Gently remove with a wet, warm (not hot) washcloth, pat skin dry and moisturize if necessary. Use once or twice weekly in the evening. Daily sun protection is advised, especially while using this product. If irritation develops, discontinue use and consult a physician.
I 100% recommend the Pacific Exfoliating Moisture Mask for anyone. It's a great way to keep your complexion feeling and looking soft, bright, even, moisturized and glowing, especially during harsher seasons such as summer and winter. You can purchase a 1.7oz glass jar of this miracle mask directly from TNB's website.
