Did you know? Not all clay masks are created equal. Clay masks that come in powder form have the upper hand against clay and cream formulas. Made with dry components, the powder consistency does not rely on preservatives and fillers to stay fresh, and its longer shelf life prevents active ingredients from underperforming as they are triggered only when liquid is added to the solution. Below are six powder clay masks that help target different skin needs:
Terra Beauty Bars – Rose clay dry mask
Expect purified skin with this formula’s rose clay and white kaolin clay, while the addition of coconut milk bonds the components harmoniously to create a calming solution that is suited for all skin types, including sensitive and oily skin. Luxurious microfine roses leave a hint of botanical freshness while gently exfoliating skin with each use.
