Clay Mask Kit
To make it just a bit more personal, I put the clay in a cool container I had recently bought and made a label complete with mask instructions so she had both ingredients and instructions right at hand.
The kit included:
- white clay
- application brush
- lavender essential oil
- honey (not shown)
- jojoba (not shown)
- natural sponge for removing the mask (not shown)
- 3 satchels of lavender and cornflower (for making an infusion – not shown)
(with all these 'not-showns', can you tell I photographed this before I was done shopping for it?)
This kit is based on the 10-minute lavender mask recipe (with a couple of minor differences. She wanted cleansing/detox with moisturizing, so I added honey to the mix. Also, I replaced the almond oil with jojoba).
It's actually a great gift idea to give a friend or family member a DIY mask kit, complete with instructions. Just thought I'd share that.
PS. She liked the present a lot. :)
This gift is very nice though. :)
You are right about a mask feeling different when it starts to dry. A clay mask should be removed before it dries completely. A tip is to add a teaspoon of oil to the mix. :)
