Honey Bee Sheet Face Mask

OK—before I dive into this Honey Bee Sheet Face Mask recipe, I need to warn you guys about something. If you’ve been following me for a while, by now you are used to my mask recipes coming with a few goofy-yet-cute selfies of me with pasty goo all over my face. This is not one of those recipes. Oh sure, I took the selfies… but they are neither goofy nor cute. They are more like horror-movie-set-in-a-spa, is-she-going-to-eat-my-face kind of… not cute. Pretty much flat out terrifying. And this is because this is a sheet mask. And there is a reason sheet masks do not make it into spa promo photography. But I love you guys, and wanted to give these things a try, so here we are. You’re welcome/I’m sorry.

Morning Frost Face Mask

It will not come as a surprise that I am no lover of winter, but I will concede that it can be very pretty. I love the sparkle of morning frost, especially when a thin dusting of it adorns every tree branch, porch step, and fence post. On a perfectly crisp morning the neighborhood looks positively frosted in diamonds, and if I have the luxury of staying in all day with a big pot of tea, my mukluks, and a good book, that’s a pretty darn perfect day. Days like that are what inspired this Morning Frost Face Mask.

Holiday Parfait Face Mask

These cute jars of Holiday Parfait Face Mask make fantastic gifts as well as fantastic face masks. Layers of different colours of clay stack up in cute jars for the perfect stocking stuffer that’ll pamper the pores of anybody lucky enough to be on your gifting list. The silky combination of two relatively gentle clays means this blend is great for most complexions, and it smells wonderfully of sweet vanilla and bright pine. Yum!

Brightening Kaolin Bentonite Face Mask

This Brightening Kaolin Bentonite Face Mask came about as a bit of an oopsie. After I made my video on the differences between kaolin and bentonite clay I had a total brainfart as I went to put the clays away. Instead of putting the unused benonite back into its tub… I dumped it into the dish of unused kaolin clay. Oops. Left with a rough 1:1 mixture of the two clays sitting in a small bowl, I started turning my oopsie leftovers into quick, improvised face masks with a bit of lemon juice. This Brightening Kaolin Bentonite Face Mask quickly became a favourite, so I knew I had to share it.

Lilac Rose Face Mask

My garden has sprung to life with beautiful pale purple lilacs, fluffy pink roses, and a lawn that needs to be mowed far more often than seems necessary (it’s still better than shovelling the walk, though!). Whenever I work outside on my back porch I’m distracted by the wafting scent of lilacs, roses, fresh cut grass, and clean air, so one day I got to thinking that I should incorporate some of those short-lived blossoms into a face mask. And here we are.
