 French Green Clay Face Mask

This super moisturising, creamy face mask, is made with French green clay and grape seed oil.  It is easy to make and glides on to the skin so easily and effortlessly. 

French green clay has an exceptional mineral content making it a perfect ingredient in this face mask.  It easily absorbs impurities in the skin, leaving it feeling fresh, smooth and glowing.  Leave on for a few minutes, then wash off with cold water.  Apply your moisturiser soon after.

We chose grapeseed oil as our carrier oil due to its wonderful emollient properties. It is easily absorbed into the skin and helps to retain skin moisture and repair damage. 

Please always do a test patch to determine if this preparation is suitable for your own skin type.  Any cosmetic may cause irritation on sensitive skin.
