If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, you will definitely love this face mask. It’s gentle, smells like a piña colada, and leaves your skin refreshed, gently exfoliated, and wondering if it’s in Tahiti.


The base of the mask is white kaolin clay (USA / Canada), a mild clay that I find to be noticeably more gentle than French green or bentonite. It’s also light and smooth, and does a lovely job of helping clear out your pores without leaving your face feeling parched.


Up next, some powdered coconut milk (USA / Canada) and powdered pineapple powder fruit extract. Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which helps break down outer skin cells, gently exfoliating. I used these as powders because I have them—if you don’t, feel free to use half a teaspoon each coconut milk and pineapple juice in place of the water.


A small touch of virgin coconut oil rounds out the mask and helps prevent the mask from drying out your skin too much.


The resulting mask is smooth and creamy, with hints of coconut and pineapple. The pineapple helps gently exfoliate your skin while the mask dries, while the coconut milk helps improve skin elasticity.

Coconut & Pineapple Face Mask

½ tsp powdered coconut milk (USA / Canada)
2 tsp white kaolin clay (USA / Canada)
¼ tsp pineapple powder fruit extract
¼ tsp virgin coconut oil
1 tsp warm water

Whisk the powdered coconut milk (USA / Canada), clay, and pineapple extract together in a small dish. Add the water and coconut oil, and whisk until smooth.

To use, spread the white creamy mixture over your face and let dry for about 20 minutes. Rinse off and follow up with some argan oil.

Take that, clogged pores!
