Judging the Cert Clean Beauty Awards 2022 - Face Mask Catergory
Over the past few months, I've been busy testing out this wonderful array of natural face masks and treatments for the Cert Clean Beauty Awards 2022. As the final judging date approaches, I thought it would be a good time for me to share some of my thoughts on these products.

What Are The Clean Beauty Awards?

The Clean Beauty Awards have been created by CertClean who is North America's leading certification for safer skincare. Although many of the products that I've tested out below fall into typical areas of green, vegan, natural and organic beauty, the general idea behind the awards isn't about how natural or organic a product is, it's about the overall safety of that product instead (in particular, CertClean focuses on products which are free from over 1400+ potentially harmful chemicals)

One of the best things about CertClean is the huge panel of natural beauty advocates and bloggers who make up the judging panel - I believe this year is a record high with over 130 experts taking part!

As you all know, I'm a huge fan of face masks so I was delighted to be ask to judge the Face Mask category this year. Let's take a closer look at the products that I've been judging.

Judging the Cert Clean Beauty Awards 2022 - Face Mask Catergory
Ameōn Ice Cubes Supreme Energy 
Starting with the product that is more of a facial treatment than a mask, Ameōn Ice Cubes are a fascinating innovation which is designed to hydrate and rejuvenate whilst detoxifying. As the name suggests, this is indeed a frozen product; to use them you store the premade 'ice cubes' in the freezer and then use the mould and gauze provided to sweep it over the face in circular motions. It may sound a little strange at first, but it definitely helps to boost circulation and reduce redness, plus my skin felt so much smoother and softer afterwards. One to check out for sure!

La Vigne Derm Immortelle Bakuchiol Overnight Mask
Bakuchiol is one of the most popular natural ingredients in skincare right now and I can confirm that the hype surrounding this plant extract is totally justified. Hailed as a natural alternative to retinol, bakuchiol is quite simply an outstanding ingredient that delivers results fast. This Ayurvedic-inspired formula from La Vigne is brilliant for anyone who has those first signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and it's great for plumping the skin back up to make it look smoother and younger. One of my favourites.

KPS Essentials La Luna Rose Peel Masque
I love a good natural peeling treatment and I've thoroughly enjoyed testing out the KPS Essentials La Luna Rose Peel Masque. Packed with Glycolic Acid, Rose distillate and Pearl powder extracts, it gently exfoliates and removes dull dead skin cells for a brighter result. This is one that I would reach for in my skincare routine about once a week to keep my complexion glowing.

Byroe Golden Carrot Overnight Relief Mask
Initially, I was excited to try out this luxury mask from New York based brand, Byroe, but I feel it's fallen a little short off the mark for me personally, and is perhaps the less effective of all of the face masks and treatments that I've tried for CertClean. Described as an Overnight Relief Mask that intensely hydrates, brightens and soothes troubled skin, I sadly found this much too rich and thick for my oily/combination skin. That said, I would perhaps recommend it to those who have drier or more mature skin types instead.

Epoch Glacial Marine Mud
Next up, we have the Epoch Glacial Marine Mud mask which is formulated with more than 50 different minerals and trace elements that are sourced from the Pacific Northwest. This is a straight up, easy to use mud mask that's ideal for multi-masking or applying all over if you have oily skin that's prone to blemishes and breakouts. It does the job well, but did leave my skin very dry afterwards so following up with a good moisturiser or facial oil is a must.

Moor Spa Kelp Enzyme Mask
Finally, the last product that I tried for the judging panel comes from Moor Spa and I may be a little biased here, but I've used and loved this particular product before! Check out my previous review of Moor Spa Kelp Enzyme Mask here. It's similar in some ways to the Epoch Mud mask above, though I personally like this a lot more and would happily continue to repurchase it in the future as it doesn't dry out my skin or leave it feeling stripped afterwards. The blend of fossilized Sea Kelp definitely seems to have a much bigger detoxifying effect on my skin and it's amazing for drawing out all of your impurities, including those pesky stubborn blackheads! Highly recommended.
