I first heard of Pangea Organics about a year ago watching Youtube Guru Nikki Phillipi's 2011 Favorites video. In the video she lists their Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai and Goji Berry Facial Mask as one of her favorites explaining that "it just makes her skin look better." That extremely highly descriptive explanation made me instantly run out buy it.

This mask is a gritty thick moss colored clay with a very strong herbal smell. You apply a even layer to clean skin and leave on for 10-20 minutes. Within that time, the mask dries and turns a lighter shade green. To remove, you wet your hands and massage the mask into your skin. This does take a little work as you need to completely rewet the mask in order to remove.
This mask purges the skin pulling all impurities out to the surface. If you have any pimples forming under the skin it is going to bring them right out. If you do have acne prone skin, I would suggest planning your first use for a time that you don't have many plans the few days after because you will probably experience some breakout. After my initial use, I noticed my skin to be much smoother and soft. I also feel like my skin has a great glow immediately after using.
My one issue with this product is that it can be very messy and ends up all over my vanity. The grit and pieces in the mask gets over everything and tends to slow my drain. When using this mask, I typically wash my face and apply about 20 minutes before a shower so I can rub off in the shower and allow the "mess" to just rinse down the drain.
While I really love this mask and really want to use it more often, it is just so messy to remove that I don't use it as much as I would like. If it wasn't for the mess, this would be my absolute favorite skincare product.
Have you ever tried Pangea Organics Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai and Goji Berry Facial Mask? What do you thin? Are there any other Pangea Organics products that you would recommend?
