Welcome back to the Glistening Lane! ✨
My love for mask bought me to parallel roads where I chose to be surrounded amidst facial masks. 😅 Over dramatic? Possibly yes! You guys don’t need an intro where I blabber on my love for them and how they are my personal favourite skincare items. Today I shall share with you my experience on Greenberry Organics Herbaceous Green Clay Mask. That’s a mouthful for sure but stay tuned to find out if I have a mouthful of praises for it too? 🤔 So without further adieu, let’s zap in!
Description: Worried about daily oil control measures not letting your skin breathe?

The texture of this mask is somewhat thicker than how usually the masks are. But this way it probably helps in not making the jars messy. So for using this mask, you can use damp fingers or brush and let it be smoothened onto the face. There might be some tingling sensation but it would subside within a minute or two. Unlike some of the GBO masks, like their gels ones, this one can be kept on the face till it dries up. After drying, you can wash it off like usually you would with water and once dried up, it appears exactly how Himalaya Neem Face Mask looks and feels on removing.
Onto the effect that it endows on the skin; I feel it pretty much leaves the skin soft to touch and radiant on appearance. Since it has Neem, you can expect it to help fight acne causing bacteria. It definitely doesn’t cause new bumps onto the face but onto my big bump at chin, it didn’t do much to soothe or calm the same. Probably one or two uses might not show that much results because as I said ayurvedic products take time to show effect and within the long run they are quite safe to use. Also, I could see no excess sebum after wash. But it did not dry out the skin. Some time back, Greenberry Organics had a different constituent within their Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face Care which worked immensely well for super oily skin but for others it kinda made the skin dry. Thankfully, since then they’ve taken this factor into consideration and not only revamped the ingredients of Mud Ash Face Care but also made sure to insert at least one hydrating ingredient so that the skin doesn’t feel stretchy. I’ve reviewed the older variant of Mud Ash Face Care on my blog before; in case you want detailed review or my opinion on the new formulation, please feel free to leave a comment down below.
Packaging: By now, I think I’ve pretty much elaborated a lot of the times as to how the packaging of all Greenberry Organics products is. Comes in plastic translucent jar with colour coding of green because of course, its ‘herbaceous’ mask. Details concerning product, such as ingredients, price, manufacturing details and all that jazz is stated onto the jar. The lid is one of those which opens via rotating mechanism and the mask inside isn’t into liquid form, hence no spill!
When masks come within the tube form, I simply mess up my fingers to apply the goodness endowed within the product. Having a jar for mask is convenient only when you are onto the last resort of content and wanna use it to its optimum level. But from another perspective, getting jars of masks would definitely transfer bacteria from hands or face. You might say “Duh; young lady, go and wash your face plus hands first”. Alternatively, you can use those face mask brushes but make sure to wash them before and after every use. Although Ayurvedic products take time in showing results, but make sure to use products meant for your skin type. Greenberry Organics offers variety of masks & you can go ahead and pick one that suits your skin. Also in case you’re wondering, face mask brushes make everything so super-convenient! And you don’t necessarily need to go and buy some expensive one because they’d pretty much do what exactly they are meant for. Plus if you spend on the expensive one, chances are – even if its hair gets ruined, your heart would ache to toss it into the bin!
Anyways, now that I’m done blabbering upon how it can be applied, let’s shift our focus to how Greenberry Organics Herbaceous Green Clay Mud Mask smells. I don’t think I can tell exactly how some random clay would smell, but from this mask, there comes herbal sort of fragrance and little bit of the Neem. It is somewhat strong so sensitive nose people, be careful! To me, it smells like those Ayurvedic powders. I can’t single out on one because my father legit stores a lot of ayurvedic and homeopathic stuff. In case you’re wondering, nah he isn’t a doctor; merely an Engineer with doctoral traits! :D Just sneeze a little in his presence and his magical wand would present you with homeopathic pills. 😉
Lastly, one thing that I noticed was an issue that not only happened within this mask’s jar but before as well. The newly lid closes conveniently but after say two uses the lid doesn’t sit properly onto the jar. I’ve have had their Anti Acne variant mask too wherein this problem persisted. One solution is removing the additional plastic layer that sits between jar and product lid. That way it closes well but otherwise it’s a disappointment. The new jars with transparent body don’t have that issue but with the translucent ones, I did encounter this and it happened not just once.
Pros: There's not a single part of this mask's formulation or effects which I dont like! Everything is quite good. 😃
Cons: There are only two things that bug me and let me be honest, it doesn't have anything to do with the goodness endowed within the product. I think in my inclination to brand Greenberry Oragnics, I've seen them launching products in three type of jars. The opaque plastic jars are somewhat disappointing when it comes to closing them. Their lids work fine twice or thrice and then it just doesn't fit perfectly for some unexplored reason. It happened with two of my face masks and this part is a little annoying because it just ruins the mood. Lastly, their price point is a downside. I mean, of course you can get them at deals from Smytten, Amazon & now Flipkart too; but MPR of 600 bucks and then discounted rates of INR 400 still feels a little disheartening. It falls into your budget if you are willing to shell Rs. 500 or so but I can literally name a lot of amazing face masks which would work amazing well for Combination to Oily Skin with vulnerability of getting acne. In case you want to know of some, feel free to leave a comment down below. But of course, if there's no compromise on quality, it's worth investing upon! 😊😍
Much Love ❤
