This mask is ready-made, no mixing required! It is full of anti-oxidants and packed with essential minerals magnesium, calcium, and iron from raw cacao powder plus the toning, rejuvenating and detoxing properties of horse chestnut, cucumber peel, and licorice extracts.
CACAO is packed with antioxidants to help repair skin and flavanoids to reduce inflammation. The copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc in cacao can also promote healthy cell growth, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also stabilizes elastin and collagen in your skin.
KAOLIN CLAY is the mildest of all clays and is suitable to add to products created for people with sensitive skin. It helps stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it can also be used on dry skin types without negative results.
CUCUMBER PEEL EXTRACT is rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes essential for strong cell growth and repair. In addition, Cucumber Peel offers a natural source of a powerful antioxidant.
Cucumber Peel Extract can be used to keep the facial skin soft, also acts as a skin toner and can be used in astringents to revitalize stressed and tired skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant.
LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT is said to have amazing anti-inflammatory properties and the extract can be used for topical applications. It can also be used in skin care formulations to soothe, brighten and relax dry and tired skin.
HORSE CHESTNUT EXTRACT has been found to have soothing, anti-irritant and toning properties and is wonderful for aged and fragile skin.
VEGETABLE GLYERCINE works as a humectant, which is why it attracts moisture onto your skin and helps to improve the hydration of the outer layer of skin, and the skin's normal protective barrier function. It can stimulate old skin cells to rejuvenate and is used to treat many oily skin conditions, like acne, skin infections, wrinkles and fine lines.
WITCH HAZEL helps tone skin and minimize pores along with its anti-bacterial properties, making it a must in facial creams and masks.
SANDALWOOD works wonders on blemish/pimple prone skin and it stimulates the pineal gland.
Apply a thin even layer to your face. Allow mask to became tacky or dry for 10-15 minutes, gently rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a toner and moisturizer.
This mask increases blood circulation, so you may experience slight redness; this is normal and will disappear in about 30 min. For sensitive skin, test mask on a small area first. Prolong shelf life by scooping out the mask with something other than your fingers. Use within 3 months of opening.
