I have been on an organic skincare journey since last March. As a result I have been testing a few products out.
Here is my lastest (and it’s 100% Jamaican made – thanks Morgan’s Creek |I love this store|) :
So after cleansing with my Morgan’s Creek Acne Treatment Bar ( made with Turmeric, Neem and Coconut Oil); I use my fingertips to gently place the mask all over my face then I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes.
I then wash it off with lukewarm water. My face always feels super soft and refreshed. I have not had any acne break-outs since using this mask!
Now I will say the only issue I have is that it TAKES FOREVER to wash off as it leaves a yellowish residue on your face. I usually have to cleanse again and then I wipe my face off with Witch Hazel ( which I use as my toner/ astringent)
I am going to try this mask a few more times until the jar is finished. Will it replace my Bentonite Clay Mask? I don’t think any time soon, but let’s stick with it and see. But it’s still a great mask if you’re looking to try something new. ‘
Have you tried this mask? Let me know what you think!
lots of love,
(yup, that’s fresh out of the ground Jamaican Turmeric)
You’ll see the more refined, powdered version in the supermarkets in a little bottle!

Hey Loves! I hope you are all doing fabulous as always. Life got a bit busy BUT that doesn’t mean I can’t squeeze a review in!
As you know, I love me some laid edges so I am always seeing what works best for my hair.
Okay so personally, and for my natural 4C hair this product is great! I have seen other reviews saying it works best being applied to wet hair. That is definitely not the case for me. My hair frizzes faster when I use on completely wet hair. So I spray my hair with a little water (as I do when styling daily), apply my natural oil, then moisturizer, then I apply my EcoStyler Gel right before I use the OSSION Ultra Aqua Hair Wax.
Like every product, after a few days a gray-ish residue but if you really love that all day sleek neat up -do or just some really laid edges, get this now!
I saw on amazon this is going for about 15- 20 USD which is pretty bizarre for me because here in Jamaica I get it for 400JMD (approx. 3.50USD). Which is amazingly cheap.
Product Advertises That:
OSSION Extremely Aqua Wax Laborious water soluble hair styling wax for Implausible shine and powerful regulate growing texture, definition and taming flyaway hair. Aqua wax Laborious is completely water soluble.
- Works all day
- Water soluble
- Easy to use
- Not sticky
- Doesn’t dry out hair or make it stiff
- Provides shine
- Smells good
Would I buy it again?
- Status: Currently using daily!
