This has been a very long time coming.
Why? Because I could not work around the fact that honey loves to dance with water, and because we strictly never use preservatives, I could not add anything aquatic. I tried with sole solution, but the honey just LOVED fermenting in the salt bath, sourdough-style.
I put the project aside, and continued to just smear sticky honey mixed with a little Chamomile extract on my face before showering – amazing for a fresh clear morning face – until a friend send me her beautiful hydrosol, which I spritzed under the mask. It was such a revelation and I am so sorry I did not think about this earlier!
So here it is, the GOLDEN AGE HONEY MASK that would make Cleopatra proud.
Made with the worlds best raw enzymatic honey, sourced from Tim Malfroy, Australia’s master of wild bee keeping. I added sweet Chestnut extract and finely ground powder of sweet Chestnut for gentle exfoliation, Elemi resin extract to reduce lines, shrink pores, and beautifully even complexion, ‘Balm of Gilead’ poplar bud extract for an antioxidant boost and to smooth dry, cracked skin, fine Bamboo powder to help normalise acne prone and UV-damaged skin.
Each jar has a massive dose of pharmaceutical and food-grade 24 karat Gold, so much Gold, it visibly illuminates the gooey, delicious mess. Gold helps halt and restore collagen degradation like nothing else, harmonises skin function and brings sunlight to your face.
I have chosen to completely leave out essential oils in this mask, to not interfere with the enzymatic action of the honey. The result is a pure, luxurious goo with satisfying yet gentle exfoliating action.
For women and men of all skin types. All ages. Benefits mature, acne prone, UV damaged skin.
I love using this mask in the morning once a week, as it really freshens and clears my face and firms it in all the right places.
Douse your face with a little water, or hydrosol, then massage a dab of the mask all over your face, adding more hydrosol (or water) if it is too sticky, you don’t want it to ‘pull’ your skin as you apply. You only need a light film, don’t use the whole jar up in one go, a tiny bit goes a long way.
Make sure to rub your hands with the honey after for very soft and somewhat ‘firm’ hands. Leave on for 15-30 minutes, take off which warm water. The mask will not dry, and remain sticky until washed off.
We recommend using our composition for a few weeks exclusively to harness it’s potency and gently transition your skin into it’s new, natural and healthy state.
A 30 ml jar lasts about 30-40 application, and I use it just once a week, as it’s quite an intensive experience.
