Izil is a highly effective natural cosmetic brand, made in Morocco. All of their products are made from organically certified highest quality Argan Oil, together with other natural, pure and rare ingredients.
Izil has three collections namely : Face , Body and Hammam collections.
I was delighted to try out their Re-Mineralizing body mask, which is the second treatment in the Hammam collection, the first being the “Beldi Black” Moroccan Soap.
This mask is made from Argan oil and Rhassoul clay, a silica-rich cleansing mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It claims to do the following:
- absorb impurities from the skin and replace them with nourishing trace minerals
- improves skin texture and elasticity
- rehydrate the skin
- softens the skin, leaving it subtly scented of Damask rose
During the day, our skin loses nutrients and elements regularly. This mask acts as a mineral supplement by replenishing the skin with those lost nutrients and trace minerals. Rhassoul clay is renowned for it’s unmatched absorbing virtues and high ratio of Silica, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium and other trace minerals, making it one of the best and rarest clay in the world.
It has a pasty consistency and you are supposed to apply a thin layer of it on dry or wet skin, preferably after exfoliation. Then you have to leave it on for 10 minutes, before rinsing it out.
I prefer applying it on to wet skin, since it’s easier to spread it on. Also I noticed that I use a lesser amount of the product when doing it on wet skin rather than dry. I mainly use it on my neck/shoulder area, hands and lower legs, from knee down. I feel like I will go through the tub fast if I put it on my entire body and seriously, I don’t want this product to finish!. It’s so lovely.
The mask dries by the time it’s 10 minutes. I usually use a scrub before applying this mask, to enhance it’s performance. When rinsing it out, I use circular motions so that there is an increase in blood circulation too. It’s a really relaxing ritual!
It’s scent is that of Damask roses, which I have only heard of before now. The best part is that the scent lingers on for a long time. It’s a rich, luxurious and sensual scent, that is just gorgeous ♥.
The product comes in a plastic tub, containing 150 gms. It contains no parabens, synthetic colors, added fragrance or preservatives. It costs AED 95 and is available at the online store Little Majlis or stores in Dubai Festival City and Souq Madinat Jumeirah.
The result of using this mask is absolutely soft, re-hydrated, nourished and supple skin. I highly recommend this product!
