Review: OZ Naturals Enzyme Dermafoliant

press sample

Official description

  • OZ NATURALS DERMAFOLIANT utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping.
  • THIS FACE SCRUB contains Lactic Acid further helps the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
  • ANOTHER KEY INGREDIENT, Green Tea Extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as tone and protect the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.
  • THE PRO-VITAMIN B5 IN OUR SCRUB is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin
  • SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and paraben free

Where to buy
From Amazon – You get a 2.75 fluid ounce bottle for $24.95 USD.

Directions
Exfoliation is key for maintaining youthful, healthier skin and for proper penetration of serums. Exfoliation should be done 2-3 times a week. Dispense roughly a nickel size amount into the palm of the hand, and mix in a tiny amount of fresh water-just enough to make a thin liquid paste. Next, apply to face, neck, and décolleté (or any area of the body that needs to be exfoliated.) Rub in a circular motion, making about 3-4 passes over the entire area(s). It is recommended to leave on the skin for at least 5 minutes, so the key ingredients will have time to absorb into the pores. It is also recommended to use this product in the shower, so the heat will open the pores and assist with product penetration. Use while showering is also best in order to completely rinse away all of the residue afterwards. After exfoliating, pat skin dry, follow with OZ Naturals toner, then serums, next moisturizer, and lastly eye treatment.

Packaging
This comes in a cardboard box that has company and product information on it. It is a white plastic bottle with a silver twist to open cap.

Scent and formula
This has an herbal almost astringent scent. It’s a fine almost white, slightly gritty powder.

Ingredients
Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Powder (bamboo powder), sucrose, lactic acid, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (green tea powder), panthenol (provitamin b-5), Thioctic Acid (alpha lipoic acid).

Okay so the formula and name were changed. This was formerly called Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant and had rice powder in it, it no longer has rice powder and instead uses bamboo powder. The ingredients on the bottle are old ingredients, but they were updated on the box, and the name on the packaging is the old name. With that said, I have been using this for about a month and a half. It’s a wonderful scrub. It only takes a tiny amount mixed with water to create a really effective exfoliating scrub. This has a really interesting smell, it’s herbal and a little spicy and also kind of astringent like. I quite like it. The first time I used this I made the mistake of using way too much powder and then scrubbed my face too much. I made it raw. It literally takes the smallest amount and there is no need to use a lot of pressure or to scrub for a long amount of time for this to be effective. The lid has a tendency to twist all the way off when you’re trying to open it and it doesn’t quite seal all the way so if you get the bottle wet while it’s closed, water can still get inside. Those are the only two issues I have with this product though. It’s a wonderful product. After using this my face is soft and smooth. This isn’t drying either like some scrubs can be. I use this 2-3 times a week and it has improved the way my skin looks and feels. I’ve also noticed that I use smaller amounts of my serums and moisturizer since I started using this. This is also paraben free, vegan and cruelty free.

Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder

Review: Zakia’s Morocco Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder

press sample

Official description
PURE AND NATURAL – This exquisite all natural and organic detoxifying clay is unique in its composition, quality and purity; It is meticulously selected from ancient mineral-rich deposits, found deep within the fertile Atlas Mountains, and contains 100% pure Ghassoul

FAST ACTING – Simply mix with a little water to create a smooth creamy texture, then glide effortlessly over your face, neck and hair as desired; Within seconds, you will feel a gentle tightening, as the intense detoxification begins to absorb impurities and harmful substances, cleansing

STUNNING RESULTS – You can expect a buttery soft, smooth and toned skin complexion, free from dryness, blemishes, blackheads and blocked pores; Your hair will feel light, manageable and conditioned, with curls defined and frizz controlled; Eczema, psoriasis, and acne are treated and calmed without stripping your skin of essential natural oils

MULTI-PURPOSE – Our Spa grade Ghassoul Clay is a versatile and multi-purpose daily cleanser that can also be used as a detoxifying face mask, skin conditioner and hair restoration treatment; It delivers one of the world’s most powerful deep pore facials WITHOUT harsh chemicals, and can be applied daily to even the most dry, flaky and sensitive skin.

Where to buy
From Zakia’s Morocco – You get an 8 ounce jar for $19.99 USD. It’s currently on sale for $10.99 USD.

Directions
After your spa, bath or shower while your skin is still moist and warm, apply a thin layer of Zakia’s Atlas Mountain Clay Mask over your face and body.

1. Add the clay into a bowl (size of a full large mug)
2. Pour water on top of the clay until it just covers it (big maximum 5 mm of water above the clay). Pour the water slowly so you can be sure you are not adding too much water and make the final mask too runny.
3. Wait 2-3 minutes so the water is fully absorbed by the clay. If needed add a bit more water.
4. Wait another 2-3 minutes and start mixing everything with a plastic or wooden spoon until you have a clear mixture – it shouldn’t be lumpy. Keep stirring if you see any lumps. If you feel that the mixture is too runny and won’t stick to your skin, add more clay and mix again. But bear in mind that it is easier to add more water than more clay.
5. Apply it on your face. Ideally, the mask should be really thick (like a 5mm thickness) but it can be thinner if you want. You will feel the tingling as the mask works to remove impurities and dead skin cells.
6. Do not leave the mask to the point it is completely dry on your skin. The edges will start drying out first, which is fine. Just add with your fingers a bit or oil on the edges to avoid it being itchy. It can be any oil such as jojoba oil or olive oil.
7. Leave the mask at least 15-20 minutes, but it depends how thick it is. If you have a very thin layer of clay, it can last just 10 minutes. But you won’t see very must results like this so I would recommend doing enough quantity so you can have a reasonably thick layer.
8. Just use warm water to clear your face. You don’t need soap for this.
9. When you skin is cleaned, apply a moisturizing cream as the clay will absorb moisture from the skin along with any impurities.
10. Your skin will be silky smooth and remarkably clean.

After drying, you may wish to compliment your clay mask treatment with one of Zakia’s Argan Collection Oils. These have been specially formulated for facial treatments. If you want a soothing and relaxing massage, try a small portion of our pure Argan Oil and gently massage. An exceptional finish to an exceptional treatment.

Your skin will be silky smooth and you will feel radiant. Do enjoy!

External Use Only

Keep out of reach children. Avoid contact with eyes. In the unlikely event that a skin irritation, rash or allergy arise from using this product or eye contact occurs and irritation persists after thoroughly rinsing the effected area we recommend you consult your physician for further advice.

Packaging
This comes in a clear plastic jar with a white screw on cap. The label has product and company information.

Scent and formula
This is a fine tan powder. It smells like a regular clay mask powder.

Ingredients
Moroccan Lava clay.

I have been using this clay from Zakia’s Morocco for a little over a month. This clay is pretty nice for the skin and hair. I’ve used this a couple of times as a hair mask. It leaves my hair a little softer and much less frizzy. As a face mask this leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and reduces the appearance of pores. It’s a very fine powder that makes a really smooth mask. This is non-drying but helps with oiliness. I did notice my skin was a little pink after using the mask but it went away within a half hour. You can use this once a week as a face mask. You are also supposed to be able to mix some with shampoo to create a better cleansing shampoo but I haven’t tried it yet. I’m not sure if it would strip the color from my hair faster or not, so I haven’t tried. xd

These were so much fun. Fumiko and Sascha both love them. They are super metallic and shiny and apply really well. It only takes like 30 seconds to apply and they never rip or come off partially. The tattoo comes off whole in one easy step. They last quite a while, but are easy to remove with oil. The designs are really cute and even though they’re for women and girls there were lots of designs Sascha could choose too. At first it kind of feels weird but after a little while you can’t even feel it on your skin. They are also not irritating. I haven’t had a problem with them on my skin, nor have the kiddos. Basically these are pretty awesome!
