About 8 to 12 uses per 4 fl oz jar
FRENCH PINK or ROSE KAOLIN CLAY- With the properties of both white and red kaolin, Pink Clay can be the ideal balance for those with sensitive skin that may have a bit excess oil and needs gentle exfoliation. Since Kaolin clays do not draw oil like other clays, they are also ideal for dry and dehydrated skin. Supplying skin with a boost of natural minerals, French Pink Clay provides the nourishment it needs to function well and retain moisture. Excellent for improving elasticity, cell renewal, and skin rejuvenation.
ORGANIC ROSE PETALS - Chock full of antioxidants, powdered Rose Petals refresh skin naturally. Suitable for all skin types, they can help tighten and shrink large pores and aid in cleansing and toning. Rose petals help hydrate by trapping moisture in the skin which can help soothe dry and sensitive skin making it soft, fresh and glowing. Its natural toning properties are ideal for uneven skin tone and pigmentation issues.
ORGANIC HIBISCUS- Known in the skin-care community as the “botox plant”, powdered Hibiscus may help combat saggy, wrinkled skin by blocking the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of connective tissue. Because of its high mucilage content, Hibiscus helps skin maintain a youthful appearance by enhancing its ability to retain moisture. Anti-inflammatory properties help soothe inflamed skin, making Hibiscus a suitable ingredient for those with very sensitive skin.

Creating an application technique that works for your skin will get you one step closer to a beautiful complexion.
Mixing The Clay
Step 1: Start with approx 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon of clay in a bowl.
Step 2: Slowly add 1/4 teaspoon of room temperature or warm water and mix with a spoon.
Step 3: Continue adding small amounts of water and mixing until a creamy mud-like consistency is reached. Some clays need more water and some need less, so always begin with just a little water and continue to check the consistency. Be sure to mix well to a smooth clay paste.
Applying the Mask
Step 1: Begin with a clean*, dry face free of make-up, moisturizers, etc. (*Read the FAQ "Should I wash my face before using a facial clay mask?")
Step 2: Using a applicator brush or a flat foundation brush, apply the mask to your face. You can apply using any technique that you like. I usually apply a thin first layer and then apply a second thicker layer so the mask is about 1/8″ thick.
Step 3: Allow mask to dry for 5-10 minutes. Drying times vary depending on the clay and your skin type. As the clay dries you will feel a pulling and tightening sensation on your skin.
For oily skin or a deep cleanse, allow the mask to dry almost completely and then remove--leaving the mask on longer does not add anything beneficial to the treatment and may cause increased redness.
The drying phase is when the clay draws moisture from the surface of the skin.
Thus for sensitive or dry skin or a more gentle cleanse, allow the mask to only dry around the edges of the face and nose and then remove (about 5 minutes).
Removing the Mask
Step 1: I like to remove a clay mask with warm water and my fingers.
To re-hydrate the mask a bit for easier removal, you can dampen a face cloth with warm water and hold it to the face before removal.
Since this mask is meant to be an exfoliating mask due to the ground espresso, use gentle upward circular motions with your fingers to help to stimulate circulation, polish your skin as the mask is removed.
Step 2: Gently pat face dry completely with a soft face towel.
After application of a clay mask, you will feel a tightening effect and the skin may even feel a bit itchy at first.
Clay helps increase circulation. As a result, you may experience mild temporary redness for up to 30 minutes.
Step 3: Moisturize! Follow-up with a facial oil or moisturizer.
Step 4: Enjoy your super smooth and beautifully fresh skin!
