Willa Natural Fresh Face Cucumber Face Mask Mini Review

I have been eyeing Willa Naturals’ products for quite awhile.

If you’re unfamiliar, Willa Naturals was made to help offer a fun line of natural skincare products to girls at affordable prices.

They have a great lines of features in their products that anyone trying to go more natural with their routine will appreciate, whether you’re 15 or 40.

Check Out the Stats:

  • Paraben Free
  • Proplyene Glycol Free
  • Sulfate Free
  • DEA Free and Phthalate Free
  • Not Tested on Animals
  • Made in the USA

As such a big fan of their natural and simple line of products for girls, I jumped at the chance to try samples of their Fresh Face Cucumber Face Mask.

I know their products are mainly marketed to younger girls, but hey, a face mask is a face mask is a face mask and I want to try them all, especially the cucumber ones!

Included in this awesome face mask are ingredients such as Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Witch Hazel, and Cucumber Extract.

It is mainly meant for young teen girls experiencing acne breakouts, unclog pores, and oiliness.

I really love this face mask!

It is SO awesome for detoxing the skin; after I used this mask, my pores looked smaller, more clear and any redness was calm.

It definitely helped clear breakouts for me as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that this mask brings all breakouts and would-be breakouts to the surface of the skin so you may have a day or so where you have a few spots on your face, but after that, your skin will be clear and calm.

I truly love the results this face mask gave me! Even though it is marketed to younger girls, it should be for anyone who has acne prone skin or anyone who needs to combat hormonal breakouts. It works really well and doesn’t dry the skin out at all even though it does help unclog your pores.

Not only that, but this mask is SO affordable!

It only costs $1.75 USD for a small .33 Oz Foil, but I used one of these on 3 different occasions so the value is huge on this.

I highly recommend this mask, whether you’re battling teen skin breakouts, adult acne or hormonal.

It works, it’s super affordable and budget friendly, and the ingredients are pretty great as well.

My Latest Favorite: DIY Ginger & Kaolin Clay Face Mask

As you guys may have guessed, I love face masks!

Any kind really, but especially the ones that work miracles to clear breakouts and calm redness as I have really reactive skin.

This past weekend I discovered the miracle that is a ginger face mask!

This ginger mask was great as it really helped clear my pores and had a nice heating effect when left on my face for about 10 minutes while in the bath.

AND it is such an easy diy face mask recipe that anyone can make with very little ingredients and some can be substituted for things you have on hand as that’s all I did as well.

Sooo amazing!

Ingredients:

  • Organic Ginger Powder
  • White Kaolin Clay (may substitute for any clay you have)
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Directions: Mix 1 tbs of ginger powder and kaolin clay with juice of 1/2 lemon and enough water to form a paste. Apply to clean face and leave on for 2-10 minutes as desired. Rinse with warm water. 
This mask really left my face with a nice glow, noticeable (though likely temporary!) tightening effects, smaller pore visibility, and overnight effects helped to clear and diminish spots and blemishes.
I want to note that you don’t have to use all the ingredients here; the main important one is the ginger powder. All others can be substituted. For instance, if you have no clay on hand you can use uncoated aspirin (acne benefits) or honey (for more moisture). Otherwise you can use any other clay you have on hand. You can use another liquid in place of lemon juice, but I like it for the brightening effects. Other liquids you can use are milk (light exfoliant good for mature skin), apple juice (brightening like lemon, but not as harsh), or you can use just water if you like.
That’s all for now; I hope you enjoy this mask and try it for yourself!
Let me know what effects you get or your favorite mask recipes.
I’m always up to try new ones!
