Masks, masks, masks. I'm obsessed. I want to try ALL the kinds of masks, and Oblige by Nature has some very unique clay masks that I am just loving. They are one small brand of which I'm a big fan! I've tried their French Rose Clay Mask before (for sensitive skin) and today I want to tell you about their French Yellow Clay Mask (for oily skin.)
Oblige by Nature was founded in 2000 by Dr. Paul Petit, a naturopath who has specialized in treatments using clay. Before using their masks, I used to put on a clay mask and let it dry and crack on my skin. Dr. Petit teaches that in order for a clay mask to be effective, it needs to be damp. So, now I put my mask over a quick spray of toner or water, and spritz intermittently to make sure that the clay still has enough moisture to do its thing.
I find it really relaxing to brush on a mask! It's like painting my face, only I'm not making it look better... this yellow mask looks almost chartreuse on me! Not cute.
My nail art is inspired by the clay and the brightness I feel using it. I started with a gradient of Nubar Gold Feather and Color Club Lion's Den, and then added a smattering of gold glitter from OPI Pop The Cork! I thought it was fun how the green shimmer in Gold Feather mixed with the pink shimmer in Lion's Den.
For more information, or to purchase, you can find Naprodis and Oblige by Nature on their website, where this French Yellow Clay Facial Mask retails for $19.95. You can also find them on Facebook.
