Azara Organic Seaweed Powder Review

I'm a fan of facial mud masks. I apply it at least once a week because it helps minimize my acne break-out and helps with my skin's oiliness. Honestly, this is the first time I heard about a Seaweed Facial Mask. I eat and snack on dried seaweed (Nori) and love California rolls but I've never heard of seaweed used as a facial mask so I was quite excited to try it.

Azara's SeaWeed Facial Mask and Body Wrap powder is made of Organic Seaweed Powder (Ascophyllum Nodosum) and is harvested from the North Atlantic ocean. These seaweeds are constantly tested to ensure its quality and consistency.

North European and Asian cultures have used the rejuvenating power of seaweed for centuries to achieve soft and supple skin, help reduce inflammation and detoxify the body.

I received the Azara Organic Seaweed Powder in a plastic jar. It is sealed inside to prevent the powder from spilling. The powder has a green color and smells like seaweed. It has a fine, powdery texture which is smooth and similar to confectioner's sugar.
The preparation of the seaweed mask is really simple. The direction is to add 2 tsps. of warm water to a tsp. of seaweed powder. I did a little bit of modification because I found that mixture too thin. I added a bit more of the seaweed powder to make my mask thicker. :)

Next comes the application. After cleansing my face and drying my face, I proceeded to apply the seaweed mask on my face. If you're not a fan of any kind of Japanese rolls with dried seaweed on them, then I do suggest that if you use an essential oil for your skin, add a drop to mask the seaweed scent a bit. I have no problem with the scent of seaweed so I just used the seaweed mask by itself. I left the mask on my face for 15 minutes and then rinsed it off with warm water.

I like the Azara's seaweed mask because it made my skin feel soft. Unlike facial mud masks, the seaweed mask didn't give me any tingling/tightening sensation but my face felt clean and tight after rinsing it off. I have a BIG acne on my chin before applying the seaweed mask and after rinsing of the seaweed mask, my acne appeared noticeably smaller and less inflamed. I didn't get any skin sensitivity or reaction when I used the seaweed mask. My pores didn't get clogged so no breakouts for me.

I like the Azara's seaweed mask because it's all-natural and effective.
