It's mask month ~
and there's nothing scary ( Boo! 👻 )
about THESE masks. 👇 😉
Don't be fooled by these gentle ingredients.
We're fully transparent about all the ingredients we use, and each treatment is filled with only skin-specific, pure, plant ingredients. Each mask delivers a different remedy for skin ~ from oily, to dry, to acne-prone, to dehydrated, and all can be used on sensitive skin. With zero synthetic additives or fillers, each mask gives our skin so much love and many applications.
Our natural masks are fun, they’re easy to apply, and they’re great at delivering results by adding a variety of vitamins and antioxidants to the complexion.
We have facial masks to hydrate, remove excess oils, clear pores, and improve the appearance and health of our skin. Impurities are removed while the skin is gently detoxified and clarified.
Read on to find out which mask is the right mask for your current complexion, and which will get you glowing for the Fall season ahead! 🍂

Yes, there is!
Even those of us with sensitive skin and Rosacea can benefit from the right facial mask. Making a little mess at the sink, pouring your favorite mask into a bowl and adding a little water, cleansing oil (we love this!), or even a botanical toner offers a handful of benefits.
The last thing we want to do is use a mask filled with questionable or synthetic ingredients ~ that totally defeats the purpose! 🙅 Selecting the mask that's right for our current complexion can not only help our skin physically, but it can also ease the mind.
A mask is the perfect skin care remedy to help with complexion concerns. Our proprietary masks can help skin in a variety of ways:
- remove excess oils
- clear the pores
- improve the appearance of pores
- pull out impurities and debris
- detoxify and gently exfoliate
- hydrate the complexion
Another benefit? It's that pampered feeling that you get from a spa, but you're at the comfort of your own home with safe and fresh ingredients.

Q. How often should we mask... once a week, twice a week?
A. It depends on your skin and your current skin concerns. Read on...
Every healthy skincare routine includes a mask once or twice a week. I've even been known to do a quick mask every morning after cleansing... it's divine, and it's perfectly fine. More on that further below.
Men, women, teens, and everyone in between can benefit from taking just five to ten minutes a week for a facial mask.
It's not unlike adding extra vitamins or cooking up a special meal; when we feed our body a variety of fresh greens and foods, our muscles, tissues, and yes, even our skin benefits from what goes on our fork.
Our skin also benefits from the variety of different antioxidants and actives we feed it from a mask, too! 💗
There are two masks that I use almost every day. In the morning, a mask that that I love so much (and so do many of you!) is our Honey Cream Mask with Active Manuka. At night, I use the Lavish Serum Salve as a leave-on treatment around my eyes, lips, neck, hands, and even feet and elbows. When I need a moisturizing mask, I apply it in a heavier amount, sometimes add an exfoliant to it, then wipe and rinse it away. It's quenching and gentle enough to use daily.
Additionally, one or two other nights, I rotate between the Antioxidant Mask and Green Tea with Raw Cacao mask. Sound like a lot? It's really not. I put it on, do what I'm doing for just a few minutes, and then rinse. Perfect!
Thrilled to be included in this article in Healthline on the benefits of Manuka honey and our skin.
Our Honey Cream Mask with Active Manuka is highlighted, and my commentary is included from the article, as seen here...
“The celebrity and first ingredient in our mask is the Manuka itself,” says Lisa Brill, the founder of Qēt Botanicals.
“We wanted to offer a specific, Manuka-forward mask because of the naturally potent properties it carries that help skin be its best… Manuka offers vital amino acids, vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and even zinc — all skin-loving, and all wonderful.”
This mask is another favorite! 😘
Fast + Easy ways to add a mask and natural vitamins to your regular skincare routine.
In the morning after a cleansing oil cleanse (watch the video here), we take just a small amount of Honey Cream Mask, (just a pea sized amount), add water to it, and massage it onto damp skin, and rinse after just a few seconds. It's almost like a detoxifying and softening second cleanse. My skin loves it! You can also take the slow route and rest for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.
After rinsing, add a mist or two of botanical toner, three drops of day serum, and the routine is complete. Here's an option that we love if you're looking for a vitamin serum or vitamin boost. Add a small amount of the Purely Cranberry Serum Boost each morning to your day serum. Bam ~ that's it!
At night, for years I've used our Lavish Serum Salve as an overnight night mask. It's not just for face, but it's beneficial for hands, elbows, knees, feet... anywhere your skin wants a little love before sleeping. I keep it next to bed and apply anywhere I see fit.
As an extra vitamin supplement for skin after the night serum is the Purely Rosehip Serum Boost. TIP: Read up on our Serum Boosts if you're considering adding a vitamin serum to your daily routine. You'll see why we offer the boosts that we do, and why we avoid other commercial formulas of Vitamin A or Vitamin C serums that are so popular.
It's quicker than you think. Adding those extra few minutes, literally maybe one or two minutes, can makes all the difference in your skin. ⌛

We DO love the simple act of mixing, applying, and relaxing with a skin-loving mask.
It's fresh, it's safe, it's at home,
and it's right at our fingertips.
Masking Tips for Our Masks
1. Start with a clean face. Apply your mask after cleansing to ensure that your mask can deliver the benefits to a clean complexion. Following a light exfoliant can also be beneficial ~ your option.
2. Add a little Hydra-Rose Eye Serum around the eye area first to add some extra pampering while the rest of your face and neck are experiencing the mask.
3. For our Green Tea & Raw Cacao Mask and our Antioxidant Mask, simply add just enough water to make a paste and apply to damp skin. After it dries, remove with warm water and a wet washcloth if you wish. You can also use it with our cleansing oil, botanical toner, or even an organic or dairy-free yogurt. Mixing it with our cleansing oil keeps the mask from drying on the surface allowing the vitamins to see a little longer. If you haven't tried it, try it! Doing this option is like having two masks in one.
4. Our Honey Cream Mask is dark in the jar but goes on clear. Add a small amount of water to a pea-sized amount and blend to activate it, and apply it to damp skin with a gentle massage.
5. Our Lavish Serum Salve is ready to go... retrieve a tiny amount, melt it into the skin by massaging onto a damp or dry complexion and allow it to sit before wiping away. No need to rinse! It can also be left on as an overnight experience. It's lovely. We call it "Lavish" because it's meant to be used everywhere... face, eye area, neck, chest, hands, feet, elbows, knees, and the like.
Either way, you really can't mess it up. And... if it gets a little messy while you're masking, that's ok and that's just part of the fun. Below is our mask brush and bowl set shown with the Antioxidant Mask with Cranberry. Great for those dry masks when adding water, cleanser, yogurt, or toner. Stir it up with the brush and apply to the complexion. Delight.
Your October Special ~
Taking that "me time" by including a five- or ten-minute escape with a facial mask, a soak or a shower, and some pleasant aromas can offer not only emotional and therapeutic benefits, but like we mentioned above, the physical benefits on the surface of our skin develop as well.
If you've ever suffered from really bad skin, I know I have, you know that sometimes a skin mishap can go further than skin deep. Upset skin can affect our mood and even our confidence.
In last month's blog we highlighted and gave tips on our core products in the daily facial treatments, our Skin Suites. This month, we're taking it one little step further. It's that once or twice a week remedy that can benefit all of us ~ all we need to do is do it.

👏 You're one mask away from a good mood. 😉
Autumn is nature's way of exfoliating all those things it doesn't need anymore. Doing this makes room for the new. It's letting go.
When we let go it can be as meaningful as forgiving and letting go of hurt, or as simple and enjoyable as exfoliating and shedding dead skin while feeding our skin with goodness. Both are beneficial!✨
We were on a recent road trip and while driving through the Rockies in Vail, Colorado, the thousands and thousands of Aspens were waving their yellow leaves as we drove through. It was as gold and as yellow as you can imagine, and the image below doesn't do it justice.
So, let's take it from the trees. Let's let go of those things that no longer serve us, prepare for a change in season, and then revel in the newness of what comes next. It's been proven over and over that when we can make time for ourselves, it can boost our mood and make us feel whole and happy. We're all for that!
Below: Snapped while driving through and enjoying the Aspen leaf-turning show. You can't realize how many thousands of trees there are when everything is green. The thousands and thousands of Aspens were showing-off their glow for miles throughout the Rockies. Talk about natural beauty. 🍁
Take it from those trees and show off your glow, enjoy the change in season, and just enjoy.
