Herbs & Honey Pink Clay Mask

Today’s project is inspired by a face mask I spotted on Instagram that rings it at about $100/100mL. It definitely had some good ingredients in it, but nothing that should make it that sort of wince-worthy expensive. My version blends two different clays with some herbs, honey, and some other good stuff for an easy to make face mask that you can personalize every single time you use it. And it’s definitely not $100 😄

Calming Milk and Honey Face Mask

This past weekend I ran my first-ever 10km race! It was in Montreal, and it was proper hot last weekend—so hot they cancelled the full marathon out of safety concerns. The 10k race was at 8:45am and it was already somewhere between warm and hot when that started, mostly thanks to the humidity; it was 28°C with the humidex when I checked. Those were ten extremely sweaty kilometres. Anyhow—I was expecting to be sore afterwards, but the thing that really caught me off guard was how my face felt. Hot, yes, but… well, it stung from all the sweat. Apologies if that’s far too much information, but there you have it. I was completely surprised to find my cheekbones were stinging and my eyelids were itchy like I’d just been in the ocean, but minus the ocean. So, upon my return home I thought a soothing face mask was in order—hence this Calming Milk and Honey Face Mask.

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.

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.

Honey Bee Face Mask

Spring has sprung here in Calgary! We’ve got blooming tulips, budding roses, leafy trees, green grass, and lovely bumbling bees again, and all of this makes me unbelievably happy. In honour of our recently returned bumbling bee friends I whipped up this silky honey bee face mask on a sunny spring day. It’s loaded with bee goodness and is easily made with a handful of ingredients you probably already have. Woo!
