This isn’t your typical natural skincare line. The products are safe and natural, true, but they’re also innovative and effective.
Alitura Naturals understands that when it comes to skin, health is beauty, and beauty is health.
The 3-Step Process
Using the derma roller between the mask and the moisturizer leads to smooth, glass-like skin. Here’s what to do:
1: Apply a clay mask once or twice a week. Massage it all over your face, neck, and even into your hairline. After it dries, rinse it off.
2: Roll the derma roller and its teeny-tiny titanium needles all over your face to stimulate your skin’s healing response, eliminate imperfections, and perfect the look of skin.
3: Apply the moisturizer all over face and neck.
Voila! That’s it.

Alitura’s mask, derma roller, and moisturizer have taken my skincare regimen to the next level.
You know how some skin products are extremely targeted and only fix one thing like acne, or wrinkles at the exclusion of everything else? These products create visible improvement with nearly every skin frustration and imperfection I had.
Here’s what I noticed:
- Skin texture is refined, with smaller pores and a smoother surface.
- My skin, which is highly sensitive and prone to breakouts, stayed clear.
- My skin tone is more even and bright. But I should mention that this evening-out is different than you might expect with a bleaching cream. While a prescription bleaching cream may even things out, you’re left with a ghostly pallor. With this product, the clarity seems to be coming from within, closer to how a child or teen’s skin exudes brightness and health. It makes my skin look healthy and even younger.
- This is a big one: my skin was neither dry nor oily. Normally, I get a bit oily on the forehead and dry around the nose and mouth… but these products have balanced my skin out beautifully.
- Skin, overall, is more plump both in appearance and to the touch. As a 34 year old mother of two, that’s a welcome improvement! It’s basically the “anti-haggard effect!”
So yes, there are all these specific improvements I’ve seen in my skin. But here’s the big two points I’ll leave you with: my skin looks the best it’s looked in YEARS. And that’s as a breastfeeding, homeschooling, blogging-late-at-night mom.
And because of that, I’m going to continue using Alitura’s 3-Step Process.

Andy’s Inspiring Story
The story behind Alitura is remarkable. A man—an actor and model, no less—was in a horrible accident and was able to restore his skin beyond any hope or expectation. You can read his story here.
As I’ve tried to figure out what makes these products so good, I can point to specific ingredients or how using a derma roller immediately after a grass-fed colostrum + clay mask clarifies and restores skin….but I think the x factor here is how extreme the founder Andy’s situation was, and how that desperation forced him to look beyond what solutions already existed and use everything at his disposal to innovate. It was an innovate-or-else situation. And he succeeded.
In life, it seems the people who’ve overcome in the most impossible of situations are the ones who end up moving us all forward. And when it comes to skincare, I do believe this mask-roller-moisturizer combo is a step forward.
Inside the Mask
Let’s start with The Alitura Clay Mask ($59). It’s not your typical boring clay mask. I repeat: This is not a boring mask.
It feels like marshmallow fluff without the stickiness and smells faintly of seaweed. As it dries it tightens the way you’d expect a clay mask to tighten. I leave it on until dry then rinse with warm water.
But it contains active ingredients that are not typical of a clay mask. It contains a relatively high concentration of Vitamin C. And it contains pearl powder which not only exfoliates but helps to even out skin tone—goodbye, sunspots!—and smooth fine lines.
But my absolute favorite ingredient in the Alitura Clay Mask is the 6-hour grass-fed colostrum. It’s nature’s ultimate nutritional boost. It not only assists in the regeneration of skin cells, but is also rich in a wide array of natural enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Here’s the full ingredient list: freshwater pearl powder, 6-hour grass-fed colostrum, ginseng, L-ascorbic acid, rhassoul clay, illite, calcium bentonite clay, kaolin clay, organic kelp powder.

The mask can be mixed with apple cider vinegar, but as someone with sensitive skin, I opted to skip the ACV and stick to water.
The Derma Roller: The Skin Perfection Tool
Using The Alitura Derma Roller ($29) in conjunction with Alitura’s mask and moisturizer is a brilliant way to boost the results you get from any derma roller.
This derma roller stimulates your skin’s innate healing ability. People who love micro-needling claim that their skin looks younger, plumper, scars are minimized, and large pores shrink.
If you’re new to derma rolling and confused about exactly why anyone would want to put needles on their face, Alitura has a helpful video that’ll show you exactly how to do it.
The Alitura Derma Roller is made up of 600 titanium needles. They recommend replacing the roller after about 10 uses, to maintain the sharpest possible needles and therefore get the best results.
They offer it in three sizes: Beginner (.25mm), Intermediate (.5mm), and Advanced (1mm). I’ve been using the .25 size. I never bleed and the redness I get from doing it goes away in a few hours—which is why I use it at night.
If you’ve never used a derma roller, don’t be intimidated. It’s much easier than it seems.
Inside the Moisturizer
I’m extremely wary of essential oils in skincare products. My sensitive skin has staged one-too-many rebellions to blindly trust essential oils in skincare. So when I read the ingredients on this moisturizer, which include ylang ylang, sandalwood, and vanilla, I wasn’t sure if I should even try it.
But even for my sensitive skin, The Alitura Moisturizer ($49) is one of the best skin moisturizers I’ve ever used.
It contains 95.4% organic ingredients and is packaged in the best-of-the-best: miron glass.
Here’s the full ingredient list: purified Hawaiian water, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic cocoa butter, organic beeswax, organic evening primrose oil, organic aloe, raw Wilelaiki honey, organic bee propolis extract, organic ylang ylang essential oil, organic sandalwood essential oil, organic blue chamomile essential oil, organic sea buckthorn essential oil, calendula essential oil (wildcrafted), organic carrot seed essential oil, vanilla essential oil (wildcrafted), royal jelly.
Alitura has included one of the best all-time ingredients I’ve found for skin: raw honey. Most honey found at the supermarket has been heat-processed and doesn’t provide the same nutritional benefits as raw honey. Pasteurization renders its natural enzymes and probiotics inactive. But raw, living honey has the power to beautify skin, support skin’s natural microbiome, and is appropriate for every age, skin type, and concern.
I usually love serums, but because of the quality of the ingredients in this moisturizer, I used it without a serum underneath to get a true sense of what this moisturizer can do. And I was not disappointed!
By the way, this moisturizer works very well under makeup.
