Skincare :: Synesis, Moroccan Clay Mask

Synesis is a Polish brand offering comsetics made only of natural ingredients containing minimal necessary amounts of preservatives and colorants. Anna Garbaczewska, the founder of the company calls her products "precious" because, as she says, "they are good for the skin and for the environment". Indeed, when I look at the ingredients listed on the website, for example organic rose oil (Synesis owns a rose plantation in Isparta, Turkey), sandalwood oil or Island moss the word that comes to my mind is "precious". No silicones, mineral oils or other popular and suspicious ingredients. Synesis declares that their products are safe for allergy prone skin.

By courtesy of Synesis I could test two of their products. Today I'm going to show you Synesis Morrocan Clay Mask.

Synesis mineral morrocan clay comes from near Casablanca, Morroco. It contains volcanic ingredients such as sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium cations and silica. It's supposed to have puryfing, smoothing and relaxing effects.

How to use it

You're going to need:
  • morrocan clay
  • water, preferably mineral
  • spray thermal water
  • a little bowl
  • a spoon
Morrocan clay is a powder which you mix with a bit of water to get a paste. If you want to make your mask a more nourishing you can add few drops of an oil. Apply the mask on a cleansed face avoiding eye area and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Every couple of minutes spray a bit of thermal water to your face to keep it from drying. If you feel stinging or tangling it's a sign clay got too dry. 

After 10-15 minutes rinse it off with warm water. It's best to do it during a bath or shower because yoou don't want to have mud all over your bathroom. 


It takes a bit of effort but it's totally worth it. My skin looks lovely after using Synesis Morrocan Clay. It's smooth, brightened, the pores are smaller and less visible. At first I was going to apply the mask only to my T zone but I didn't want to waste the product so I applied it also to my cheeks (normal skin). I was really surprised to see that the skin on my cheeks also looked so much better. I guess it shows that morrocan clay not only purifies the skin but also nourishes, detoxifies and gives a lifting effect. That's why I think it's great for every skin type or age.

Synesis product are available on-line at (Polish only :/) or in a shop in Warsaw.
