Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Mask Review

Sorry for posting so late today you guys, I’ve been having problems with my eyes and needed to give it a rest from the screen. However, I wanted to get this post up because…well it’s on the to-do list!

It’s about time that I finally did a review on the Blue Tansy AHA+BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask! I wanted to use it for a few weeks so that I could give a full honest review and not just a first impression.I don’t really do reviews on products that I don’t like because I am purchasing these products myself. Okay, keep reading if you want to know more about the Blue Tansy Mask!


Here’s a little blurb from the Herbivore Botanicals website about the key ingredients that are included in this beautiful blue mask.

Key Ingredients

White Willow Bark: A natural beta hydroxy (BHA), it is high in salicylic acid which works by gently shedding the top layer of skin in order to decongest and unclog pores.

Fruit Enzymes: Natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), including papaya and pineapple, work to gently exfoliate and rid skin of dead cells to leave the complexion smoother, softer, and fresher.

Blue Tansy Oil: Naturally high in Azulene, which in addition to giving the oil its beautiful blue color works as a powerful anti-inflammatory to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin.

Aloe Leaf: Naturally contains salicylic acid and works to gently unclog pores and soothe the complexion.

I’m sure you see some familiar words like salicylic acid, which is known to help, get rid of acne.

About three weeks ago I walked into Sephora looking for a mask to purchase. I had my eye on the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask for awhile now, but then I noticed that they held Herbivore Botanicals and I changed my mind very quickly. They had the Lapis Oil, the Rose Hibiscus Face Mist and the Blue Tansy Mask. Obviously, you guys know that I picked up the Blue Tansy Mask and literally couldn’t wait to get home to try it out.

So the directions say that you can apply the mask for three consecutive days and then begin using regularly – about one to two times a week. Well, that is exactly what I did and my skin has been in love ever since.

The mask is a gel like consistency that you can apply with a plastic applicator that comes with the mask or with your fingers. You don’t need too much; only a thin layer is necessary. After washing the mask off, my skin feels so soft and smooth. After a few hours, my pimples are shrunken and almost non-existent.

I will be honest, though, more pimples started surfacing and that did worry me for a bit. Also, my hyperpigmentation became much more noticeable. I then realized that my skin was well…shedding dead skin and all the impurities were rising to the surface so that they could be rid of once and for all. I have never experienced a mask do this before and was quite surprised.

Once the third week approached (this week,) my hyperpigmentation started to fade and my complexion looked so much more clear and even had fewer pimples. Of course, I still have a while to go before I start seeing more drastic results, but so far I do like what I’m seeing.

The smell of the mask is a mixture of mint and floral, which I believe is the blue tansy. It can be an overwhelming smell, but it does die down after a few minutes. I will advise to keep it far away from your eyes because of the strong fragrance.

I love how gentle yet effective this mask is so that you can use it every day if you must. I don’t really have anything bad to say about this mask at all. For some reason, Herbivore Botanicals just gets it when it comes to natural products that actually work. I absolutely adore this brand!

I could go on as always, but I’m going to leave it at this! If you have any questions about the Blue Tansy mask feel free to comment down below! Thanks for reading.
