Balm Balm Hibiscus Face Mask

This 100% organic face mask deserves its own review because frankly it is the most interesting and unique face mask I have ever tried.


When I opened the tub I discovered it comes in powder form, which is something I haven’t seen before. The instructions said to mix about a tablespoon with some warm water to form a paste, but I think one or two teaspoons is sufficient. It comes in a 40g tub so it wouldn’t last very long if you used that much, and I had a little wastage using a whole tablespoon. That’s just my opinion.


When mixed to a paste it smells very nice, not in a synthetic fragranced way but in a completely natural ingredients way. The mask contains ground brown rice powder, ground hibiscus and rose geranium essential oil, all nice organic ingredients straight from nature.

Because I am used to creamy textured masks I found it a bit difficult to apply, but then I found I was just trying to apply too much at a time so bits kept dropping off. I soon got the hang of it. The rice powder is very grainy, almost like very fine beach sand, which felt a bit strange. But you have to think out of the box with this. My daughter was really fascinated and found it hilarious that I was wearing flowers on my face (quote). It takes quite a bit of rinsing to get all the fine rice powder grains off, but it makes a very good exfoliator. I was actually worried it might be harsh, being more used to biological peels, but when I washed it off I hadn’t gone pink from scrubbing or anything like that!

But all that aside, the proof is in the pudding. When I dried my face I could really see results. I was pleasantly surprised that the effect could be so immediate. My pores were definitely less visible and my skin felt very soft and smooth. It isn’t any old mask, it is actually a little tub of awesome flower power.
