“I have a confession to make: I am a 20-year-old mask virgin. That’s mostly due to my sensitive skin, but after seeing these plant-based superfood capsules, I was immediately intrigued. These mighty pods are packed with 15 all-natural ingredients like glacial clay, shiitake mushrooms and green coffee. I felt like a beauty chemist, mixing together the powder with a teaspoon of water and a dollop of honey for some added moisture. I applied the concoction with my hands and let it sit for about 15 minutes while I scrolled through Instagram and snapped a #maskfie. With warm water, I gently removed it by rubbing it in circular motions with my hands for a post-mask exfoliation. There was no sticky residue from the honey and the powder’s exfoliating properties weren’t irritating at all on my skin. Plus, it left my face feeling baby soft.” — Victoria Christie, fashion & localist intern
