CLEANSING BAR TIPS AND TRICKS
Wrap in paper towel, place in an airtight bag or container and store in the refrigerator until use.
There are 2 reasons for this:
1. There are no preservatives these bars, which is fine in anhydrous (water-free) products if they stay completely dry until use. The paper towel helps keep the product dry.
2. The airtight container helps keep the product fresh and free of refrigerator smells.
These bars will become 'soft-ish' at room temperature – which they should be when applied. The bar should mash easily with a finger and have the consistency of chocolate that is going soft but still holds its shape.
For one application to face and neck you will need approx half a teaspoon of product. Section off enough portions for a few days use and keep them in a small container in the bathroom. This way you will always have ready-for-use portions at hand.
Method of Use
Wet your face and neck thoroughly (don't be afraid to splash on the water – it helps activate the clay)
Soften the bar between your hands. Apply to your face and neck, keeping the area around the eyes free. Wet your hands again and gently massage the face and neck area. This will function as a moisturizing mask if you leave the mixture on for about 5-10 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
Finish with an alcohol-free skin tonic (A spritz of hydrosol is ideal). You may find your skin is so deliciously smooth that you don't need to apply a moisturizer.
