Good friends will have a spa day with you, the BEST friends will help you test clay mask recipes on their beautiful faces at 1am. ….I have the best friends ever 😍😍😍
I love a good face mask. (who doesn’t?) But I love to be lazy! A good face mask in a jar is an easy spa treat go-to. What I don’t love is smearing isoparaffin, or polyisobutene onto my face and waiting for magic to happen. #NOPE. I usually just mix up a fresh clay mask of Kaolin, French Green Clay and Activated Charcoal. Adding a few drops of lavender oil, and a few teaspoons of lavender hydrosol if my skin is dry. This way I can get my spa on knowing I can pronounce everything resting on my face. Now that’s magic!
With the help of my midnight focus group up there, I’ve packaged up the perfect amount of clay, and juuuust the right amount of magic. So you can do the same, anytime you want!
Headed to the website just as soon as my manicured talons can type out the tiny ingredient lists. I’ve got Detoxifying green clay, refreshing rose clay, and pore clearing activated charcoal for ya!
What other types of clay mask would you like to get your hands on?
We are forever on the road. I think I’ve spent a grand total of 11 waking hours at home this month.
Which is awesome! I love going places, exploring, documenting (eating all the foodz); BUT I don’t always have access to my skin care regimen. So, I’ve been tooling around lately with more portable options.
Some new items headed for the website this Autumn:
Exfoliating grains for on the go scrubbing, alone or added to mild cleanser.
A mild cleanser!! I’ve been hard pressed lately to come up with a gentle face wash that contains no sulfates or foaming agents. So I’ll just do it myself 😊
Cleansing oil/makeup remover 🤗 there are a few out there that work well and treat my face nicely, I just wish they were comprised of less processed ingredients. So I rolled up my sleeves, slapped on LOTS of makeup, removed said makeup time and time again until I got the formula just right.
What portable skincare options do you wish existed? Maybe I’ll get to work on that next!
You read that right folks. I’m keeping the same luxurious cream soap base, and the gentler exfoliation of pure cane sugar, but stepping up the exfoliation game with a sprinkle of sea salt….with a badass backstory!
Black volcanic salt is sea salt that evaporated from pools within coastal lava flows. As the seawater evaporates, the salt, now naturally enriched with charcoal (and badassery) crystallizes a bit larger and more angular than sugar; making it perfect to scrub a little harder and smooth your skin a little softer!
Photos from the road, and results to follow. Stay tuned!
