Madara Natural Skincare Masks

Madara is one of green beauty brands that I’ve been using for years. Although I haven’t tried too many things from the haircare range, but what I have tried from the skincare range I have enjoyed very much. One of the best products that Madara has ever made is Micellar Water with hyaluronic acid, which I use as a makeup remover or a toner. Today I want to share about two other skincare products from this brand that are worth your attention.

Madara Brightening AHA Peel Mask* (12.5ml, travel size)
This mask came with Love Lula’s September Beauty Box 4 months ago, but I just finished it recently. Because my skin is thin and sensitive, I’m wary of using products with the words “acids” or “enzymes”, so I used the mask only once a month to avoid any unwanted results.

According to Madara, this mask combines three things: radiance and brightness from quince fruit, hydration from lactic acid and exfoliation from elderflower. It also contains lavender floral water for extra toning abilities. The mask is green in color and very creamy, so it was easy to apply and felt lovely and comfortable. The instructions advise to keep it on a clean dry skin for 3 to 10 minutes (no longer than that) and wash it off with warm water. I didn’t exceed 5 minutes because it started to feel uncomfortable on the most sensitive areas of my face (my cheeks). However, other not so sensitive areas (i.e. my nose and forehead) could definitely go longer. After removing the mask I could see that my skin looked brighter, cleaner, and toned. It also cleansed my pores a little. I would argue about the hydration, though, since my skin felt a bit dry after.

See the ingredients:

Aqua, Lactic Acid, Glycerin***, Lavendula Angustifolia (Lavender) Floral Water*, Galactoarabinan, Amorphophallus Konjac Root Extract, Potassium Hydroxide, Mica (CI 77019)****, Pyrus Cydonia (Quince) Fruit Extract*, Sambucus Nigra (Elderflower) Fruit Extract*, Aroma, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)****, Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate HCL, Xantan Gum, Limonene**. * ingredients from organic farming ** natural essential oils *** made using organic ingredients ****pure mineral pigments. Ecocert Certified. Vegan.

Overall, I liked the mask, but I would recommend it using only for the problematic areas or if your skin isn’t sensitive.

Madara SOS Instant Moisture Radiance Hydra Mask (12.5ml, travel size)
The SOS Mask comes as a light, peach-colored cream with a gentle sweet herbal scent. It contains deeply hydrating ingredients such as rose water, hyaluronic acid, peony root extract, and sea buckthorn extract. Madara recommends using this mask by applying a thin layer on a clean dry skin and leaving for 15-20 minutes. After that, you can wipe off the excess or just leave the mask longer. If your skin is very dehydrated, you will find that there’s actually nothing to wipe off because the skin absorbs the mask completely.

I’m so thankful to this mask for saving my skin during these past harsh winter months. I used it various ways: as a mask, as an overnight treatment, and even as a face cream a few times, and it hasn’t failed me once. It has that light, velvety consistency without feeling too heavy or making the skin greasy. Instead, my skin felt plump, revived, and as if brought back to life in a way. I could also feel that it felt comfortable and less dry.

See the ingredients:

Aqua Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil Alcohol Rosa Damascena (Rosa) Flower Water Cetearyl Alcohol Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Dicaprylyl Carbonate Arachidyl Alcohol Behenyl Alcohol Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit Butter Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract Sodium PCA Glycerin Stearic Acid Palmitic acid Aroma Arachidyl Glucoside Betaine Linum Usitatissimum (Flax/Linseed) Seed Extract Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract Paeonia Lactiflora (Peonia) Root Extract Coco Glucoside Xanthan Gum Sodium Hyaluronate Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid Hydrolysed Glycosaminoglycans Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C) Tocopherol Xylitol Iron oxide CI77492 Citronellol Geraniol Benzyl Salicylate Eugenol. Ecocert Certified. Vegan.

So if your skin is dehydrated or dry in general, the SOS Mask is worth a try.

Madara AHA Peel Mask and SOS Hydra Mask are available at LoveLula in full sizes or travel sizes of 12.5ml for $8/£6.50.

Have you tried any of these masks? Which hydrating treatment is your all-time favorite?

I haven’t tried any of these masks yet but the hydrating mask sounds great for winter. At the moment I own a little pot of Balancing Mask from Botanicals which I use only occasionally, don’t always have time for this kind of stuff! This Botanicals mask doesn’t dry the skin out and skin feels really nice and soft afterwards.

I think you’d love the hydrating mask, Petra. I haven’t tried Botanicals but from what you’re saying that Balancing Mask sounds like a great product! By the way, have you had the chance to try Madara Micellar Water yet?

I actually started using Madara Micellar Water just recently as it came in February’s LoveLula box. It’s quite hydrating but I am still testing it out to see my skin’s reaction.

The hydrating mask sounds amazing for the cold and dry winter months! And I think the brightening mask would definitely be good to use a couple times a month. Looks like these two are full of really good ingredients 🙂

If you like intensive masks with fruit enzymes, you’ll like this one.
