Hope you are all doing well. Summer is not so far away and the climate is starting to feel warmer, isn’t? That calls for excessive sweating which results in rashes and also the sun tan. One age old ingredient which I’ve been incorporating in my summer skincare routine is sandalwood. So when I spotted TVAKH sandalwood & turmeric acne control mask, I added it to my cart.
Tvakh’s face masque is formulated with natural earth clays that detoxify the deepest layers of skin from dirt, sebum and toxins. Crucumin from turmeric contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that kill acne causing bacteria. The right proportion of fuller’s earth and bentonite clay work to refine clogged pores, clears acne, tightens the skin for cleaner and vibrant skin.
The face mask comes in a acrylic jar with an inner lid to avoid spilling. The outer packaging has the ingredients list, usage details and other information. I’m not a fan of tub packaging, but this is quite sturdy and is leak proof as well.
Aqua, Bentonite Clay, Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Solum Fullonum (Fuller’s Earth), Stearic Acid, Glycyrrhiza glabra ( Licorice) oil, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Sorbitol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root ext*, Phenoxyethanol, Santalum album (Sandalwood) Oil.

TVAKH face mask is in a paste form and is ready to use. This makes it time saving and convenient to use. It has a pleasant herbal fragrance which is quite soothing. It filled the room with fragrance as soon as I opened it. I’m glad that the smell isn’t over powering though. I use my face pack brush to apply it all over my face and it spreads evenly. The paste consistency is smooth, without granules and wouldn’t drip.
It gives a mild cooling sensation because of the presence of sandalwood and is so soothing. It causes a slight tingling sensation my nose area as I have sensitive skin. It dried in about 10 minutes and made my skin clean, bright, soft and nourished. I was impressed by the way my skin felt and the fact that it didn’t make my skin dry. It gave me the experience of a natural face mask.
The face mask claims to control acne, but I didn’t feel any difference with my acne except that It soothed my acne. I would say that it is a good natural face mask which is perfect for summer. I would prefer using it on days when I’m tired to mix various ingredients for a herbal face mask.
If you like using herbal face masks, you should definitely try it. Your skin will thank you later!
