One of the best smelling clay masks I own, @herbivorebotanicals Blue Clay Spot Treatment Mask is formulated to reduce existing blemishes while deeply detoxifying the skin.
• Contains Rose Geranium Essential Oil which is a natural anti-inflammatory, beneficial in balancing both dry and oily skin types.
• Provides a slight relief for puffy face as it dries and tightens
• The clay used is known for its clarifying and skin balancing properties. It does also soak up excess sebum from pores.

Containing #Rotorua Thermal Mud, this mask makes a great mineral cleanser drawing out impurities and excess oils from the skin!
• As this is made with thermal mud, be prepared for it to smell a little sulphuric.
• If you are new to clay mask, this would be a good starter as it comes mixed in the right consistency for application.
• Comes out of the tube a little runny, to use, apply a thin even layer over your face and watch it work.
• I’m an avid user of this because I love seeing how it pulls out my excess sebum from each pore! #rotoruathermalmud #thermalmud #newzealand #neezealandskincare #newzealandskincare #claymask #naturalskincare #jodyguideskincare #wildfern
Termed as the World's most powerful facial mask, #aztecsecretindianhealingclay is something that I chanced upon and it has been a staple in my cabinet ever since.
• Made with 100% natural calcium bentonite clay
• Does not contain additives/fragrances
• Do not use any metal tools to mix this
• Do not leave clay mask on skin longer than 5-10 mins for delicate skin as it will cause redness, I tend to use this at night so that a night of rest can calm the redness and I would wake up to a clearer skin! #clay #claymask #jodyguideskincare #skincare #naturalskincare #naturalmask
New to clay mask?
Here’s some tips on how to get started with them but do note that if your skin type leans towards the dry side, I don’t recommend using clay masks! <How to use>
1️⃣ Cleanse your face throughly, removing all traces of makeup & grime!
2️⃣ Mix your clay up with water or other types of solutions based on your preference, or as per the product instructions. Apply evenly over the face avoiding the eye area. A trick here is to use different types of clay for different zone of your face.
3️⃣ Let the mask dry completely! A clay mask should be left until it completely dries on the skin. This is when the clay absorbs the most, pulling gunk from inside the pores and excess oils. 
4️⃣ To remove the mask just splash enough warm water on face and with your fingertips give a gentle massage scrubbing in circular motion until the clay is completely re-hydrated, rinse off and pat dry with a face towel. Do not use any soap or cleanser after or to remove it.
5️⃣ Follow up with your choice of toner, serum & moisturiser or facial oil after👍🏻

<Clay Mask Obsession>
Coming from a history of actively oily and problematic skin conditions, clay masks have been my dirty lil secret 🧟‍♀️ Here’s my TOP 3 products:
1) @wildfernssg Rotorua Mud • uses clay from #newzealand Rotorua region and I love how this dries up with specks of oil pool from each individual pore
• never fails to leave my pores looking airbrushed away and my skin feeling less oily!
2) #Aztecsecret Indian Healing Clay
• they weren’t joking about the pulsating sensation, it will leave your skin red if you are towards the sensitive side,
• works well for “pulling out” the blackheads and as an every week maintenance
3) @herbivorebotanicals Blue Clay
• I love the scent of this!💕 It makes me feel happy, relaxed and pampered after use,
• Works great at drawing out excess sebum and leaving the skin mattified after use!

My current serum obsession is @aesopskincare Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum.
An anti-oxidant rich, daily-use serum for all skin type, enhanced with Aloe Vera, Grape and Parsley Seed extracts, this serum hydrates, softens & strengthens skin, while leaving a floral, herbaceous aroma.
My Thoughts:
• I’m quite fond of the scent, it’s pleasing to the senses. I feel like it wakes me up in the morning and calms me down at night.
• I find that this serum does what it claims to do, I find my skin looking plump after use and it does help in calming down my breakouts.

If you are looking for a solution to treat troubled skin, @reveal.a.secret Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel might just be the thing for you!
This natural plant-based formula with active ingredients  works to soften and cleanse clogged pores, preventing blackheads from appearing
My Thoughts:
• It leaves a cooling sensation on the skin upon application to aid in calming down any redness and aching pain of a pimple.
• There wasn’t an obvious reduction of blackheads forming but I find that it’s really effective in treating acne & pimple!
• I also love that it’s made with really good natural ingredients, and I’ll make a purchase to restock after this!

When it comes to a basic facial oil, Fixaderm® Skin Repair Oil by Necessity is my go-to product!
A unique blend of five active, natural, plant oils works together to help relieve a wide range of skin conditions (cuts, sunburn, acne, pimples, rashes, dermatitis, eczema) Suitable for all skin types!
My Thoughts:
• One of the best multifunctional oil I’ve purchased and tested, this is already my 5th bottle!
• I would use 3-5 drops over my face and neck & it helps to curb my breakouts, healing scars along the way.
• If you are new to Facial Oil, use them at night when you go to bed so you don’t get too bother by the sensation of oil on your skin😉

Designed to be applied after your toner or after you have cleansed your skin, a facial oil or serum is used to target specific skin care concerns, tailoring your routine to suit your needs.  #jodyguide #facialoil #serum #sgskincare #skincare 
Things to consider when choosing between products:
• Facial oil: feels like any other oil, but there may be varying viscosity of the oil
• Serum: is usually lightweight, in between a water-based product and a moisturiser, or gel-like
💪🏻 Effectiveness
• Facial oil: may contain a potent amount of key ingredients or just one pure ingredient
• Serums: often contain multiple ingredients to target different skin concerns at once
🤷🏻‍♀️ To Use:
• After cleansing and/or toning, drip the appropriate amount of product onto your palms
• Smooth the product over your palms, warming it up and apply all over your face with a patting motion
• Don’t forget about your décolletage too! And I’ll usually tidy up my bushy brows after 😂
[Previous Skincare Regimen]
Months back, I purchased and tested out @frankskincare skincare line to see if this brand lives up to its claims and if using organic products would work.

For this #review, I got their:
💧100% Organic Cleansing Oil Magic Wipe
* Oil based cleanser that doesn’t emulsify, but it helps to remove medium makeup and unclog blackheads
* Comes with an Organic Bamboo Washcloth that can be used to wipe off the product and make the cleansing process much more manageable and pleasant
* Not advisable for people who are new to the organic natural skincare world
💧100% Organic Luxury Facial Mist Rosy Mist
* spray nozzle creates a very fine even mist which is helpful and great for quick use
* I’m a fan of rose water as a toner, I use this as a water mask by saturating cotton pads and leaving it onto my skin
💧 100% Organic Luxury Facial Oil Juicer
* Being a fan of facial oil, I had quite a high expectation for this product to produce visible results but I feel like it was just an average facial oil
* It does help in keeping my skin hydrated and radiant, but doesn’t do much for healing my pigmented scars or preventing breakouts 
* Because the products are made with natural ingredients, they have limited shelf life, so I feel unless you are a heavy user, you are bound to hit the expiry date with product leftovers (not very cost effective)
* However, I like understanding what ingredients goes onto my skin and this offers that
* Not advisable for people new to organic and natural products, because you will not be used to the texture but the facial mist would be a good product to start with
