My First Time using Solstice from Mellow Bath and Body

There's no better feeling than taking care of my skin after a long day. I love discovering new masks to add to my regular skin care routine and I was thrilled when I got a lovely gift from the Mellow Bath and Body team. A huge thanks to Melody for spoiling me with this mask :) 

As you know by now, I'm a sucker for anything pink so the Solstice mask was not only a fantastic match for my skin, it was so very pleasing to look at! I've been making more of an effort to pay attention to the ingredients I use in skin care products so I was thrilled to learn that the Solstice mask is 100% natural and made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial colours, or preservatives. 


This mask is made with Australian clay, White clay, rice powder, coconut milk powder, calendula flower, camu camu powder, sweet orange oil, and lemongrass oil. Most of these ingredients are fairly common, but there were a few that caught my eye. 

Camu camu powder- rich in vitamin C, this fruit is packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has generous amounts of beta-carotene, potassium, magnesium, iron, thiamine, and calcium.

Sweet orange oil- with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, sweet orange oil is a fantastic addition to your skin and hair routine. 

Lemongrass oil- not only found in your favourite foods, lemongrass has antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. 

I love clay masks like this one because you can mix it yourself to make it as thick or thin as you like. You can even customize this mask even more by substituting water for another liquid of your choice. Think of the possibilities when you consider that this formula can be used with any toner, serum, tonic, or essence. YAY! I was able to make a few masks with this powder before even using up half of the bottle. 

One of my biggest pet peeves about clay masks is that they sometimes flake a lot after it's dry so I have to avoid making a mess when I'm supposed to be relaxing. The Solstice mask barely flaked when it was dry so I was happy that I didn't have a mountain of snow on my clothes. This mask rinsed easily and left my skin feeling exfoliated and thoroughly cleansed. I love this mask and I'll be really sad when it's finished :( 

There are so many masks that Melody has created and they all look incredible! If you want to learn more about Mellow Bath and Body check out  https://www.mellowbathandbody.com/
