BEAUTY: A Review of Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Mask

Grown Alchemist's Deep Cleansing Facial Mask easily earned a spot in our weekly skincare routine. The wheatgerm, gingko and cranberry formula made for an extraordinarily gentle -- yet effective -- treatment. Unlike other cleansing masks, which can feel rather harsh and harden on your face to the point of immobilization, this one just felt easy. The paste (which smells pretty lovely as well) dries translucent on your skin, and washes off with minimal fuss -- no scrubbing necessary. The end result is clarified skin that's smooth to the touch. Follow up with a facial mist (summer tip: keep it in the fridge to make it extra refreshing) and moisturizer. Perfect at the end of those humid summer days, this routine gives your skin a pick-me-up with minimal effort.

Cranberry seed and gingko are rich in bioflavonoids, which leaves skin smooth and luminous. The super fine white clay reduces surface sebum levels and assists in removal of dead skin cells, while wheatgerm works to reduce pore size.
