Jo the Founder of Skin Juice, developed Vanilla + Honey Face mask back in 1998 to use in salon for her facial clients. "I wanted to create a mask that I could both massage with and use as a leave-on treatment. My clientele had many different skin concerns, so I needed to develop a face mask that would be suitable for breakouts, skin sensitivity, ageing and dehydration"
"I experimented with making fresh honey infused face masks daily for my customers. Honey is a natural skin softener with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, meaning it would be ideal for treating the bacteria that leads to breakouts while strengthening the skin against redness"
"The next step was creating a nutrient rich pre-made face mask that my clients could take home with them to use in between facials. So I hand selected ingredients such as essential fatty acid rich mango, shea and cocoa butters. These ingredients are all rich in plant sterols which are the good fats that are required by the skin to repair and rebuild it’s protective barrier and will provide relief from skin conditions related to dryness and sensitivity while protecting it from harmful bacteria or irritating chemicals"
These pure plant butters were melted and extracts from antioxidant rich pomegranate, raspberry, cranberry and kakadu plum were then added to this delicious creamy mixture to further protect the skin.
Kakadu Plum is an Australian native bush food that is 5 times richer in vitamin C than oranges. Vitamin C is essential for the formation of the amino acid that is required to make collagen and protect the skin against environmental damage.
While using this decadent face mask you will also experience the sweet and gentle aroma of real vanilla and creamy honey. This sweet mask smells good enough to eat, just like a freshly baked cake.
How to use Vanilla + Honey Face Mask:
At night after cleansing spread a generous amount over the face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Massage onto the skin for one minute then leave for an additional 10-15mins. Gently remove with a warm face cloth and follow with a Skin Juice tonic and face oil or balm. If your skin is craving moisture or you need an extra pick-me-up, then you may need to enhance your beauty sleep and leave this treatment on overnight for additional skin-plumping moisture.
The Vanilla + Honey Face Mask jar is a gorgeous bright golden yellow colour which represents the sweet honey nectar that has been infused into the mask. All our colourful packaging has been inspired by the colour swatches from nature. Such as Blueberries, raspberries and all the other nutrient rich fruit and plant extracts.
