The All Natural Face has a whole range of Face Food Cleansers to suit different skin needs, but the enzymes in the papaya one are supposed to exfoliate and help remove dead and flaking skin. Thinking about it, I've been questioning how many of the papaya enzymes would actually survive being dried. I don't feel like this product does much exfoliating, but I've been enjoying playing around with it nonetheless!
I've used it as a face wash (rinsing it off immediately) and as a mask (leaving it on for 10-20 minutes before washing it off.) I prefer it as a mask, but my absolute favorite way to use it has been mixing it with green clay.

It's also super quick and easy to make! I use equal parts of the two (about 1/2 teaspoon of each) and add just enough water to make a smooth, easy to spread paste. Then I apply it to clean, dry skin and leave it on for anywhere from 10-20 minutes. It doesn't dry as hard as a straight clay mask, which I kind of like, but it does still dry down. After washing it off, I tone and moisturize, as usual.

I've been loving this mask! I like to do a mask about once a week and the combination of clay and Face Food, leaves my skin looking noticeably brighter and refreshed. I love how affordable it is too. The Face Food costs $7.50 for one ounce (larger sizes are also available) and I got my clay from iherb for $4.57. I'm also curious to compare how this would work with plain coconut milk powder, so you can expect an update on that eventually, once I track some down!
