Each box comes with a booklet detailing the month’s products and prices. Art of Organics’ theme this month was “Bright” and the products were intended to brighten the skin and tackle summer sun damage. The box band print this month was done by Jess Bruggink, artist and designer from Minnesota.
Laurel is challenging the Brighten mask users to commit to a ritual using their mask regularly and to document the results using before and after photos.
Laurel Brighten Facial Mask – $72.00
This 100% whole plant organic powder mask is ideal for mature, scarred or sun damaged skin because it has a high content of vitamin C. In order to use this mask, mix a teaspoon or so with purified water using the fan brush until it forms a smooth paste. Then apply the mask to your face and neck. The mask works best when it’s hydrated. Rather than misting your face to keep the mask damp, you can add a drop or 2 of your favorite facial serum to the paste before applying. This will ensure the mask doesn’t get too dry after application. Keep the mask on for 10-30 minutes and then rinse. My skin felt incredibly moisturized after rinsing; I’m so happy to have discovered it!
Mask Bowl and Brush – Listed Value $44.00
This beautiful shallow bowl is ideal for mixing your powder mask with water. It was made exclusively for Laurel by a Sausalito potter named, Lorna Newlin. I love the look of this bowl on my vanity. The fan shaped brush is crafted to thinly spread the mask onto your face and neck. The walnut wood handle is made from reforested land and the bristles are vegan.
Verdict: I love this Laurel mask! The brush and bowl are such useful tools to have for applying this, and other masks. Clean Beauty consistently delivers such high- quality, ingredient conscious beauty items that it is easily my favorite beauty subscription. The $116 value this month is almost triple the cost of the box ($39 a month). I can’t recommend this box enough!
