I’ve mentioned before that I spent a sizable amount of my adolescence in Martha’s house. She was always formulating concoctions for everyone in the household to test; “Smell this” frequented casual conversations. About nine years ago, Martha concocted a handful of face masks. One was a chocolate mask with coffee and one was the CO2 mask. Being a coffee and chocolate freak, the obvious love affair should have started with the coffee chocolate mask. I didn’t know what CO2s were but that CO2 mask, more than anything else I’d ever tried, made my face feel clean without feeling dry, feel glowing without making me feel oily and even healed random zits. I loved it. I loved it so much, that I would awkwardly bring up the CO2 mask in conversations with Martha, hoping she’d offer me a lifetime supply. She’d mentioned that CO2s cost stupid amounts of money but that they were the purest iterations of plants.
Fast forward to Fall of 2010 when Martha, after some nagging, recreated her famous CO2 mask. It’s as fabulous as I remember it and I’m squirmily excited that so many people seem to love it as much as I do. Sheila Hansen, of If a Goddess Wore Makeup said,
“The new mask is awesome. I normally avoid using masks because most of them leave my skin feeling tight and dry, but NOT the new mask by OHA. My skin felt clean, soft and hydrated. LOVE it.”
It’s beautifully healing on tired, dry or panicked skin, which pretty much sums up how my skin feels this time of year. Martha got creative and added acai and pomegranate to give your skin a fantastic nutritional boost. Let us know what you think of this little miracle!
