To guarantee a glow, there’s nothing better than a colorful fruit enzyme mask with just the right amount of zing.

For that kind of treat, I look no further than Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask.

Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask

{I purchased Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask from Sephora for $48. It’s packaged in a 2-ounce glass jar.}

Chicly packaged and smartly formulated, Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask combines white willow bark, which is naturally high in salicylic acid, with papaya and pineapple enzymes to offer skin a deep cleaning experience.

Acne-prone skin will appreciate the decongesting, pore-degunking power of this gel mask that somehow manages to keep the sting factor low and radiance power high.

Used once a week for a month straight, I noticed my pores appearing clearer with less clogs and more brightness. The congestion I had left was easily extracted thanks to the loosening this mask seemed to provide (isn’t that the best experience?!).

Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask can easily be used on a regular basis without irritation, though everybody’s skin is different; every seven days should be more than enough for your skincare routine.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (plant derived), Glycerin, Tanacetum Annuum (Blue Tansy) Leaf Oil, Jasminum Sambac (Jasmine) Absolute, Carica Papaya (Organic Papaya) Fruit Extract, Carica Papaya (Organic Papaya) Leaf Extract, Ananas Comosus (Organic Pineapple) Fruit Extract, Ultramarines CI 77007, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Leucidal (Radish Root ferment)

For me, a quarter-sized dollop of this non-sticky blue gel (which smells lightly floral thanks to blue tansy and jasmine) was enough to cover my entire face and neck.

I allowed it to penetrate for 15-20 minutes, and while my skin tingled ever so slightly, I never felt uncomfortably hot, itchy or on fire the way I have felt with some very active fruit enzyme masks.

For a sensation comparison, I’d say Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask is somewhere in between Juice Beauty’s Green Apple Peel and Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask.

The texture, however, is very different from the two mentioned above; this is a true gel that’s spreadable and soft. Tata’s mask is a bit more jam-like while Juice Beauty’s mask is a little more liquid.

Besides texture, can we talk about color a bit more? Blue tansy has been in the spotlight for a while now thanks to its gorgeous hue and soothing properties. It’s also said to help reduce redness — a nice counteracting ingredient in an enzyme mask if you ask me.

It seems that this mask has it all — the packaging, the ingredients, the results and the accessibility. Ready to order online at both Sephora and Amazon, Herbivore Botanicals’ Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask has earned a spot on my favorites list. What a great first interaction with a new-to-me brand!
