Yula Organics Seaweed Facial Masque Review

Last year, that sounds so weird as last year was only a month ago, a reader reached out to me. She told me that she has been a long time fan of my blog and that I've helped introduce her to several brands and products that are better suited for her skin. Cindy, my lovely reader, went on to tell me how 2 years ago she discovered how many harmful chemicals are really in our beauty products and knew she needed to make a change. Here's a little bit of the email:
Going to the spa can sometimes be very costly, so I create my own spa in my house. I love the idea of putting fruits and natural clays on my own skin instead of artificial colours and scents. It just feels so good and my skin looks so much more healthier. The results I get from using the spa products at home are comparable to going to the actual spa. And plus, it is much cheaper. Right now, I have one brand that I really love. It's called Yula Organics. I just know it feels so nice to give yourself a spa treatment after a long, busy, and tiring day. 
Amen sister, I can't argue with that! Who doesn't love pampering themselves after a long day? I had never heard of Yula Organics before this email and was surprised when they reached out to me a couple of weeks later and asked if I wanted to try any of their products. Enter *Seaweed Facial Masque. Before I get started, I just want to say that as an aesthetician I don't believe in spa specific products. I can definitely see how people would associate certain ingredients (like clay/mud) with the spa though.
Yula Organics is a Canadian brand specializing in natural and luxurious spa skin care products. They like to use ingredients in their most raw form, without the use of preservatives, that is why a majority of their products are in powdered form. This also allows you to customize each treatment based on your skin's needs at that time. Just like how facials are customized, each visit, when you go to the spa!
Masque & tiny bottle of avocado oil, I think
Description: This nutritional masque will calm, cleanse, and detoxify the skin.
For the best results, customize your spa treatment by adding 1-2 drops of oil to your face masque!
For oily skin: tea tree oil; For normal/combination skin: grapeseed or avocado oil; For dry skin: olive or sesame oil.

Seaweed is chock full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytonutrients, and antioxidants making it super beneficial for your body and skin. When applied on the skin, it helps to soften, detoxify, and repair. This masque comes in a basic plastic container that's light and convenient to travel with. It contains only 3 ingredients: french clay, which draws out impurities; seaweed powder, which softens, repairs, and feeds your skin; and aloe, which calms and nourishes. I've mixed mine with water, toner, water and honey, oil and water, oil and honey, etc, and find that all combinations work well at pulling out impurities, reducing redness, and leaving my skin feeling super soft. My biggest issue and deal breaker, is the smell. I literally gag when I have this on. My mom has tried it, as well, and loves the (and I quote) "spa-like scent" as well as the way that it makes her skin look and feel. Needless to say, I've passed this over to her and only have myself to blame as I chose this mask specifically. Clearly, I had a blonde moment. Don't despair! If you don't like the smell of seaweed either, Yula Organics has 8 other masques to choose from.

Check them out and let me know which you'd like to try most and why.

Retails for $30 CAN for 50g and can be purchased through Yula Organics.

Ingredients: montmorillonite (french green clay), fucus vesiculosis (seaweed) powder, aloe barbadensis leaf
