I don't regularly use any masks because I haven't really found any to be that great. They usually take long to dry, burn your face and your skin gets so tight while it's drying that you can't really do much while you let it work. Plus, the end result is nothing that noticeable or impressive.
I have been using this amazing mud mask from Natural Care called Revitalizing Mud Mask and it is not your typical mud mask. This mud mask is made from Dead Sea Minerals and also have Geranium and Neroli essential oils in it. It also contains Argan Oil which is amazing for your skin. It is supposed to absorb excess oils, remove impurities, balance moisture levels, firm skin, get rid of dead skin cells and enhance natural skin regeneration. It is also supposed to refresh aging skin, nurish dry skin and clear acne ridden skin.
After using this mud mask a couple of times, I have to say I am very impressed. First of all, it goes on easy, it's not hard to spread over your face. You shouldn't rub it on too much because the salt makes it a little abrasive, which is great for exfoliation. The smell isn't anything great but that's because it doesn't contain any fragrance, which isn't needed anyway since natural products are better for your skin. Your supposed to leave it on for 25 minutes but it drys quicker than that and in that time, you feel a slight tingling sensation which is much more gentle than the usual burn you get with other mud masks.
When I washed it off, I really liked the results. I instantly noticed smaller pores and more even toned skin. My acne scars seemed a little lighter and my face was moisturized and smooth instead of being painfully tight and dry like it usually is after a mud mask. This mud mask is a must have for your skin care regimen. I included the link below: http://www.naturalcare.net/Revitalizing-Mud-Mask-300g-p/rmm001.htm

Ojon has some really great hair products so I decided to try this new hair oil when I saw it at Sephora. It's a great multi use hair oil that nourishes and protects your hair as well as make it softer and shinier. The ingredients seem pretty exotic. The oils are gathered from sources with great healing powers from Tahiti, Central America and the Kalahari Desert.
The hair oil is pretty versatile, you can use it on damp or dry hair. I prefer to use it on damp hair before I put any other products in and blow dry. It works great on my wavy hair but it's fine for all hair types. You want to make sure you don't use too much or else you end up with oily hair. Using so little also helps since it's a bit pricey, $35. But, I've tried quite a few hair oils out there and this is the only one that actually lives up to the claims. It really leaves your hair shiny, smooth and free of frizz. I have noticed that my hair also seems to have less breakage, since I am always blow drying and I love the smell too, which is a bonus.
