La Boue de Beauté is a clay treatment mask designed to revive and illuminate the complexion. It contains a blend of purifying clays, superfoods, brightening ingredients such as Vitamin C and Licorice, and a nice dose of antioxidant-rich ingredients. Clays deep cleanse the skin by pulling excess oils and dirt from the pores while providing gentle exfoliation as it’s rinsed/wiped off. In other words, clay masks are an amazing solution for when your skin is a little lackluster, dull, and in need of rejuvenation! This mask is very gentle and suitable for all skin types.

It comes in dry powder form making it highly customizable! Add in drops of your favorite facial serums or oils for a moisture boost and added nourishment, herbs, probiotic powders, spices, or mix it with yogurt or raw honey. I prefer to keep it simple by mixing equal parts of the mask and water and add a few drops of argan oil into the mix. Okoko’s Les Precieux 16 oil is also a great option! After you begin to prepare the mask you’ll notice it starts to foam. This reaction is caused by the baking soda and vitamin C, resulting in a thin and mousse-like texture – just like mud! Also, included with La Boue de Beaute is an adorable bamboo spoon perfect for measuring and mixing your mask.

This one is such a fine, luxurious mask. Masking with the Okoko facial treatments is like a spa experience! After masking with La Boue de Beaute my skin is so soft, bright, and cleansed and it paves the way for better absorption of toners, serums, oils, and moisturizers to be applied after. Cleansed and exfoliated skin is one of the keys to achieving glowing skin as dead skin cells and dirty pores can dull the complexion.

L’elixir de Clarté is a toner and essence designed to exfoliate the skin by evenly removing excess dead skin cells. It’s a chemical exfoliator that contains 5% AHA (alpha hydroxl acid) sourced from citrus for gentle exfoliation. AHA’s also act as humectants – ingredients which retain and help draw moisture to the skin. Other humectants included in this toner include aloe, sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, and sugar. Chemical exfoliators are the ultimate gentle solution to dry, dull, congested skin caused by excess dead skin cells. Removing these skin cells will help to reveal smooth, glowing skin and it also helps to reduce breakouts. Check out my full review on L’elixir de Clarte for more information on AHA’s and how they should be applied and used!

Since the day I first used it, L’elixir de Clarte remains the only chemical exfoliator I have in my collection! I’ve always dealt with issues of texture and excess dead skin cells that dull my complexion and clog my pores, so exfoliation is a necessity for me. I’m still totally amazed at how this toner gets rid of that nasty stuff resulting in the most smooth and glowing skin I’ve had in a long time. As a result of that, makeup also applies and looks so much better. The humectant ingredients in this toner give my skin much needed moisture and hydration, which acts as a nice boost in addition to my traditional moisturizers. Trust me when I say this is one effective exfoliating treatment!

Lastly, I am in LOVE with the scent of this toner! Much like their Les Precieux 16 oil, it has such a luscious vanilla scent. It’s something I look forward to every night when it’s time for my skincare routine.

Glowing results don’t end with just these two products from Okoko. Each and every product in their line is formulated with effective ingredients to target issues while bringing out the glow and radiance within our skin! Okoko’s soon-to-be-released Sublime Balm is no exception to this – expect another indulgent and ultra-luxe treat with multi-purpose uses that targets issues while injecting a heavy dose of glow no matter how you use it.

Can’t wait to try Sublime too?! Pre-order it now!
