Blackstrap Molasses Face Mask Sample

$ 14.00

Blackstrap Molasses Face Mask gives my skin a thoroughly deep cleanse, whilst being ultra gentle!

– Kelsey

This unique, satisfyingly muddy, shiny black-brown, clay-mud-and-more face mask was created to provide maximum firming, brightening, and deep anti-aging results from the first application. It is loaded with mineral-rich, detoxifying Hungarian Moor mud and firming, pore-cleansing Moroccan lava clay. We added organic carrot seed oil for powerful anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, anti-acne, and brown-spot-reducing properties. Active vitamin C increases skin cell turnover and reverses age spots and sun damage.

The hand-harvested, unrefined blackstrap molasses, a rarely seen ingredient in skin care products, offers a highly bio-available dose of nourishing and skin softening nutrients: vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, and iron.

Noticeable firming, brightening, smoothing, softening, and moisturizing effects from the first application make this a must to use before a special event.

We make the mask using a hand-mixing method to retain the original texture of the beautiful Moor mud. The very gentle natural preservative used in this mask is ECOCERT approved for use in certified organic skin care products.

The mask is scented lightly with Bulgarian rose hydrosol and geranium essential oil (you will find only essential oils, absolutes, plant oils, and herbalists' plant extractives employed as scents in our products; no lab-isolated, highly processed, and likely allergenic—even if plant-derived—scent molecules). 

Recommended complementary skin care products from our line: if your main skin concerns are age reversing, brown spots or other discolorations, wrinkles, or acne, use Carrot-a-Day Serum once to twice a day; if you mostly need soothing, repair, and lots of moisture, choose Amazing Basic Face Moisturizer or Marigold Fields Moisturizer. 

Now, many new customers ask us what the difference is between Blackstrap Molasses Mask and Frightening Green Mask. These masks have different ingredients but both are broad-action masks, accomplishing detox, exfoliation, purifying, and firming. Sometimes it comes down to which mask one prefers in terms of scent, ingredients, and texture. In general, the Frightening Green Mask is a little milder compared to Blackstrap Molasses Mask; it can be used more frequently, is more specifically geared toward healing acne tendencies and acne spots, and is herbal-scented, and it contains a very small amount of mild fruit extracts that act like fruit acids. The Blackstrap Molasses Mask, on the other hand, is more about firming, resurfacing, healing of scars, and lightening of hyperpigmentation, and it is molasses-rose-geranium scented. 

Cruelty free, vegan, cold process, handcrafted, 100% natural.

Directions
Apply the mask onto face and neck, avoiding eyes and lips. Leave on 10 to 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. You can use damp cotton rounds to help soften and remove the mask. Use once or twice a week. Close the jar tightly after each use and refrigerate the product between uses. 

We suggest using a flat mask brush to easily apply this product, resulting in a thin, even layer. This method of application will help you use just the right amount and give you the maximum number of applications from each jar. Also, more and more customers and green beauty bloggers have suggested a very savvy tip that we recommend as well: mist the face with any hydrosol, facial toner or mist, or even just water periodically while mask is on; this will keep the mask moist. This reduces the drying effect of any mask and enhances the nourishing benefits of our Blackstrap Molasses ingredients.

Follow up with a soothing moisturizer such as the Amazing Basic Face Moisturizer or Marigold Fields Moisturizer (cream-gel with infused calendula oil and skin-calming pracaxi oil).

AN IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING AND TRANSPORTING: The unique healing Hungarian mud that is the foundation of this product is loaded with beneficial probiotics, and as with beer or kombucha, the probiotics can create gas when subjected to warm or hot temperatures. During warmer months, or when shipping conditions are on the warm side, the mask might create this extra gas during shipping and either the lid will bulge slightly or the mask will leak a little of the liquid. This does not affect the effectiveness: simply wipe off the jar, unscrew the lid to allow the gas to escape, stir the mask with a clean dry utensil, and store it in the fridge. If you are concerned that the customs officers in your country might become alarmed, we suggest that you skip this item if your shipping destination is abroad. We also do not suggest taking this mask along on trips, especially not on an airplane. 

Filled to the brim. Freshness guaranteed for 6 months. Full sizes 2.4 fl. oz. (72 ml) or 1.2 fl. oz. (34 ml). Sample 0.25 fl. oz. (7.4 ml). The 1.2 fl. oz. size is enough for about 8–10 uses.

Due to the very high cost of our ingredients and the labor-intensive (highly time consuming) small-batch production process, we are unable to accept returns of opened or unopened products at this time. But most products have a sample size option for purchase, so we encourage you to buy a sample first to ensure that the product suits your skin's needs and that you enjoy the texture, fragrance, and healing properties.
