So Its been a while since I tried new products and I am finally writing a review on a new brand I discovered.
WhiteWitch Skincare are an Organic and Ethical Skincare brand and an Irish company.
This is what the company says about themselves.
“We are the most ethical skincare company that exists today. We are nature lovers, doctors and artists. We make all our products using wild flowers, plants, oats and seaweed from the unspoiled coast and meadows, in front of the Atlantic ocean.
We go to great lengths to avoid the use of plastic in our packaging as we believe nature should not have to pay the price for human beauty. Our product purity and safety relies on remaining BPA free, avoiding contamination of its organic element until the end. White Witch® also ensures all products are 100% vegan and cruelty free as no animal products or by-products are used in manufacturing.
From beginning to end we handle the process ourselves. We speak to the growers, the suppliers and the local people to find the best quality ingredients harvested in the most ethical way. White Witch® is registered by The Vegan Society.”
When I saw an ad for their products I was really excited to find a company that uses no plastic whatsoever in their packaging without compromising its design. The Face mask they sent me was packaged in a cardboard box, on the inside was a cute little cotton bag that then contained the little glas jar that was sealed with a cork top.
I absolutely loved the look of it.
So I couldnt wait to try it.
So far I have used it three times.
The instructions say to mix the powder with a little water and apply evenly on your face. Then let it dry for about 15 and 20 minutes.
The first time I applied it I was in a rush, (never rush skincare guys) so I washed it off before it dried completely.
My skin felt cleaner and refreshed but I had to use it a few times right.
The next time then I did let it dry for the full 20 minutes and like with all clay masks I had to sit very still and use my facial muscles as little as possible as it starts to flake a lot. It also get very very tight and a bit itchy the drier it gets. So when I finally got to the 20 minute mark I was glad I could wash it off.
Well it took a while. But again I think that very normal with clay masks, they are just very tough to get off.
Anyway when I did get it off, my skin was very irritated and red, but also looked really clean.
I hadn’t checked the instructions on their website and put on moisturiser straight away, which you are not supposed to do. You are supposed to “Give the skins’ own sebum glands a chance to ‘reactivate’, thereby moisturising from the inside out”.
But my skin felt so tight I really couldnt resist, maybe because I didnt know I had to try to resist.
So thats what I did the third time. I didnt moisturise and it was very hard but after a while my skin felt normal again I did get that clean and fresh feeling like the first two times.
With regards to the longlivety of my fresh clean skin, I cant say much yet. The clean feeling hasnt lasted very long but I have very difficult skin and my pores just get clogged up so quickly.
I think Ill have to use the mask a few more times to come back with a more accurate verdict.
I will post an update once I have. If you had a different experience, please comment here or let me know on Instagram.
I will also definitely try some of the other WhiteWitch Skincare in future because I love their concept, the fact that they are organic, crueltyfree, plastic free and vegan.
