Beauty Over 35: Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask Review






Well hello there, lovelies! I don't have any tea for you right now but I do have one final review for the Geneva Naturals products I've been testing. You guys know these are sponsored post because I received the products free from Geneva Naturals but all opinions expressed are based from my own experience using their products. So. let's get into it!


About Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask


In case you didn't gather from the blog post title or the above subtitle, I am reviewing Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask. Before I get into my experience using the mask, I want to give you some product details upfront. We know with allergies and such it doesn't matter how well a product works if you are allergic to an ingredient you can't use it anyway. So, let's get these product details out of the way.

This mask contains two clays: Bentonite and Kaolin. Both clays are known for removing impurities from skin and Bentonite is good at healing skin including acne. It also provides antioxidant protection from Cranberry (gives it a wonderful scent as well), Passionflower, and Willow Bark as well as rejuvenating skin. The full list of ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay, Glyceryl Ricinoleate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Alcohol Denat.*, Cetyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Juice, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passionflower) Flower Extract, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (D-alpha), Glycol Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Dimethicone, Allantoin, Caprylyl Glycol, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Phytic Acid, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Phenethyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate.

Now if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed here, then there is no reason for you to read further. If you do not have an allergy read how this mask performed on my skin.


My Experience Using the Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask


The first thing I noticed about this mask when I first squeezed some out was the scent. It does have a sweet cranberry scent that is light, not heavy. It is a soft mask, not thick. I make mention of this being a soft a mask because thick masks force you to apply more mask on your face than you truly need resulting in thick layer of hardened clay on your face.

When I apply the mask to my face I don't need a lot of it. In fact, you don't need to apply a thick layer of mask for the clays to work. This mask does not dry hard. Meaning you can still move your face around and actually show emotions as it dries. The mask removes easily, I did not have any left over on my face after washing off. That is a problem I have when I am forced to apply too much mask to face, it all doesn't remove in one shot. But Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask removed with one rinsing with no residue after I dried my face. After I dry my face my face feels soft and smooth. I do look more refreshed.

My Final Thoughts


I like this mask. It performs on par with some of my favorite masks so I have no complaints with the results. It does have an edge on many masks because it does not dry hard or tight on the face. You can still smile without feeling like your skin is pulled or stretched. I love that aspect of this mask. A little does go a long way. That seems to be a plus with all three of the Geneva Naturals products I've tested.


Before I wrap this review up I want to make note the Anti-Aging Purifying Clay Mask along with the Anti-Aging Cellular Face Oil and Anti-Aging Retinoid Face Oil are paraben-, sulfate-, phthalate-, and cruelty free products. This mask current costs $22.99 on the Geneva Naturals website. All domestic (US) orders have free standard shipping.


Does your skin need a purifying clay mask to help get your face ready for some summer fun?
