Honey Cream Mask with Active Manuka UMF 16+
~ Editor's Choice Award Winner
A high-performing blend of purifying and wonderful skin healing and toning properties lies within this special mask. A touch of Kaolin clay pampers your skin with calcium, silica, zinc, and magnesium to help purify, nourish, and soothe your skin. The real performer, and the first ingredient, in this fresh mask is the Manuka honey. This is an “active” honey containing benefits that are not found in any other types of honey. A busy group of bees native to Australia and New Zealand feed on the Manuka bush that is native to these areas. The honey we use has a UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) of 16+, simply stating that it carries with it potent properties to help your skin be its best when used regularly. The cold-pressed oil of cranberry that we add carries a unique and enriching balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9 not found in any other facial oil. Vitamin A and the high levels of Vitamin E make it a strong antioxidant to provide relief to skin that is irritated or stressed.
Being active means that it has high levels of natural and gentle antiseptic and antibacterial agents not found in other types of honey. Skin that is stressed with blemishes, dermatitis, eczema, rashes, Rosacea, or other irritations can benefit from its natural hydrogen peroxide that is released when the mask is mixed with water and applied to skin. The glucose within our Manuka gradually releases the hydrogen peroxide that pampers damaged skin tissue and facilitates the natural healing process. It creates a balance of healing actives and moisture on the skin that allows new skin to flourish on its own. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits help repair damaged skin cells. The high level of antioxidants can help to reduce the signs of aging by limiting the production of free radicals that can injure our skin cells. With regular use, skin will feel toned, the complexion will even out, and old blemishes or scars will receive proper nourishment and antioxidants to help them fade away. Your best skin will start revealing itself.
All types of skin, perfect or otherwise, will be refreshed and alive when using this mask regularly. It’s effective and sweetly sticky, and it's gentle enough to use a dab of it every day.
We've found another use for this unique mask - for hair! That's right, it's the most nourishing hair 'gel' you'll ever find. Read our "Tips" to learn more.
With a clean, dry fingertip or our bamboo scoop, retrieve a small pea-sized amount of mask and spread on to cleansed and exfoliated skin which is still damp. Use small, circular patterns to apply. When applied, your skin will have a honey colored, sticky glow to it. It’s very concentrated so use only a small amount. The mask will feel sticky, and more water can be added to your skin’s surface to help it spread across your complexion and activate its benefits.
Let the Manuka veil rest for five to ten minutes. This is an active and fresh mask that works quickly. Follow with a warm washcloth steam to allow your pores to benefit and then remove. Your cleansed, softened, and nourished skin is waiting for you. With regular use, your skin will feel smooth, nurtured and toned after each use. Follow with the toning water and your day or night serum. It's gentle enough to use every day.
It's a wonderful way to wake up your skin, especially in the morning.

Not only will our Honey Cream Mask nourish and revive your complexion, but we've found another use for it. For hair!
That's right! Scoop out just a small dab (green pea size or less) of the mask on to a clean, dry finger and place in your palm. Add a small amount of water to your palm and spread to thin it out. Lightly touch the areas of your hair that you'd like to gently tame. Honey and our mask's added nutrients are beneficial for hair follicles, and this type of hair 'gel' is like no other! Like all of our pure products, a little bit goes a long way.
We love it when our botanicals have multi-uses!
Q. Can I use my toning water to help apply this mask?
A. Sure you can. You'll find that the mask goes on best to dampened skin. Whether you splash your face with water first, or use your toning water, it's up to you. Please keep water out of the mask.
