HIBISCUS & TURMERIC with panax ginseng
Beauty Masquerade lifts the senses and gently removes impurities, revealing a glowing complexion. Rhassoul clay detoxifies pores without drying skin as white kaolin clay whisks away dullness, leaving even sensitive skin petal-soft and smooth. Hibiscus—known as the “Botox plant”— improves skin elasticity, evens the look of skin tone, and delivers powerful antioxidants. Anti-inflammatory turmeric root reduces redness, calming blemishes, and skin upset as it brightens the dark spots that come from sun damage.

HOW TO USE
Mix one part dry mixture with approximately two parts of water to form a lightweight paste. Apply and enjoy the cooling sensation on your skin. Wash off with warm water when treatment begins to dry. Follow with your favorite Flower and Spice moisturizer. Suitable for all skin types, especially problematic, reactive skin prone to impurities and congestion.
Note: A clay mask should not be left on the skin until it becomes dry and flaky. This can result in the skin becoming dry, dehydrated and irritated. If you want to prolong its action, you can add moisture by spraying it with water or hydrating mist, during the treatment.
How to customise it?
After mixing it with water or water based liquid, you can add:
- a small spoon of honey for toning (this will also prolong drying time, so you can have the mask on longer)
- to refresh and soothe the skin, simply add a small amount of yoghurt or crushed fresh fruit (e.g. avocado, strawberries ...).
- add a few drops of Midnight Beauty serum for an intensive care boost.

I love this product! Firstly, the packaging is absolutely astonishing and hence it was a love at first sight. But too often we fall for the looks and once we get to know the content, the crush is over. In this case, it was a life lasting love. After using the product, all the dry skin was gone leaving me with a silk feel. Highly recommend!
I love to play around with this powder. I usually add a bit of essence or honey, honey keeps it from drying to quick. Make sure you add the right amount of water, so its spreads well. I love the citrusy smell too.
This isn't your standard clay mask - it feels elevated, luxurious, and is formulated with a beautiful blend of skin-loving ingredients. I love the beautiful glass packaging and design, the subtle but aromatic scent of the tumeric and spice, and the way my skin looks after I use this mask. For me, mixing and using this mask fees like a beautiful sensory experience.
Make sure to not leave the mask on for too long. I find that it dries quickly - I accidentally left this mask longer than intended at first, which left my skin looking red and irritated (my fault for not paying attention). But once I removed it before it became dry, I noticed a much better difference.
This mask is the real deal.
I had used the flower and spice face cream on a previous Boxwalla box and enjoyed it but I think I prefer the mask so much more and hoping it gets picked up again as it is a lush product and a clay mask game changer! No surprises there, I do love a good mask.
I first used the product with water and found that it dries really quickly but leaves the skin really bright and smooth. Karmen, kindly gave me the recipe that would be the best way to use this mask. Mix the mask with water, activate it and then add honey. Like the nincompoop I am I did mess up the recipe and the ratio a bit but definitely a yes with the honey. The mask dries alot slower and it leaves the skin smoother and brighter. I also found that any breakout that I had were diminished and had shrunk overnight.
The biggest takeaway was when I used it the night before and I woke up the next day to noticeable bright skin. Totally forgot I has used it and kept trying to think what was so different this morning that had such an effect on my skin, mind you it was the weekend.Then, I realised it was this majestic beauty and I was frankly blown away.
I kept thinking wow it’s been a good whirl and I had actually noticed that my skin was really bright without having to conscious check the results later.
So if there was any doubt whether you should be using this product or not then I would say, YES!
I read a comment below someone saying it smelled like curry- well from an actual culturally curry eater I would have to say it does not smell anything like the curries I eat. The tumeric and hibiscus maybe what give the mask a curry type fragrance but I found it quiet floral to be honest.
