Both these masks are clay based and claim to correct, detoxify and revitalize the skin. Helps with cleansing and tightening pores, boosts circulation, combats blemishes, fights dullness and leaves skin radiant.
On my analysis of their respective ingredient listings, I noticed they share some ingredients, such as Rhassoul Clay, Raw Cacao, Bamboo Charcoal Powder, Turmeric root, Sodium bicarb, and Cayenne Pepper.
Whilst TPS has more spices such as Frankincense, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Clove, Angelica root, Marshmallow root, Vanilla Bean; PM has a herbal base such as Marigold flower, Noni powder, Basil leaf, Neem powder, Sandalwood, Hibiscus flower, Papaya leaf etc.
Evidently driven by their respective ingredients the fragrance and feel on the skin is slightly different upon application. TPS gradually gives a warming sensation on the skin and has a spicy scent (obvs). Whereas PM has more herbal and earthy scent (which aligns with their company principles). Both the masks can be mixed with water, honey, green tea, yoghurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar….up to your creativity and what your skin can handle😉. In terms of efficacy, I feel both masks perform splendidly and live up to each of their claims.
TBS is in an opaque black glass jar ($90 for 250ml) and Pele mask is in a beautiful Bamboo jar which is unique to their brand ($64 for 50ml). Both the jars can be reused and repurposed for anything else you might desire.
Ideally I would absolutely love to see May sell refill packs (cute brown paper bags) of her mask to be more environmentally friendly🌎 and we can certainly reuse the gorgeous jars to store the refills. I’m very happy to add Maryna sells refill packs (at a discount which can be found under cap of each pele jar cap)😘 In saying all of the above, I feel TBS provides more value for money in terms of quantity to dollar spent. They’re both beautiful indulgences that I would equally recommend however it’s upto you whether you enjoy herbal or spicy.
