The Ultimate Facial Kit
Yet another game changer for those who LOVE a good skincare routine. This set is great as a treat for yourself or for your friends and family and includes a few of my faves and some other little extras.
Your face care routine and the products you use are so important. As we age our skin begins to loose its youth and we find ourselves looking for products to keep us looking young. The trick to healthy, younger looking skin is to ditch the chemicals and switch to natural products, especially for the skin on your face with it being so delicate. The other important part is keeping a consistent skincare routine and learning what works for you.
This facial kit includes 8 items to be used as part of your daily & weekly face care routines.
100% bamboo cotton pads x2 - I recently switched to these myself and have found them an absolute game changer. They have so many uses and are very durable and soft on your skin but most of all WASHABLE. They have various uses, I use them to wipe my face with when using my toner, use them to soften the dried clay on my face after mask application which helps to remove the clay in a more delicate and easier way and they can also be used to remove makeup, apply your cleansing balm of face cream and much more.
100% Cotton Muslin Bag - I have included these in the kit to be used to wash your bamboo face pads in to stop them being lost in the wash.
Jade Roller - 100% natural jade roller, a great massaging tool with various benefits to your skin. It detoxifies and reduces puffiness, helps to brighten & firm the skin, relaxes facial tension, helps with blood circulation & if you pop them in the freezer to cool them down they can help to calm irritation, tighten pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Jade rollers can also help your skin absorb topical ingredients more effectively.
Exfoliating Soap Bar- One of my newer products, this soap bar is your 2 in one cleanser & exfoliator for use on the face and body. Made with Shea Butter & Oatmeal, this soap has wonderful benefits for your skin.
Lavender Hydrosol - 100% pure distilled lavender water with various uses. This can be used to mix your clay mask with instead of tap water and is much better for your skin due to its purity. Lavender water soothes and invigorates the skin & helps calm inflammations and skin irritations. The antiseptic property of lavender water makes it ideal for treating acne. If your skin is clogged up, lavender water can help detoxify your skin and refine the appearance of pores making it perfect to combine with a natural clay mask. Lavender hydrosol can also be used to tone the skin after cleansing or used as you would use a micellar water.

Below I have added a few tips on what I have found to be a great for my skincare routine.
Cleanse & exfoliate your skin. I cleanse daily and exfoliate once or twice a week. With the skin on your face being delicate, too much exfoliating could be damaging to your skin. Exfoliating is an important part of your routine as it helps to remove dead skin and helps encourage healthy skin cell renewal.
I spritz my face with a hydrosol after cleansing daily and wipe with a bamboo pad to remove any excess oil, dirt & soap following my cleanse. It also prepare & protect my skin prior to the clay mask application.
Next step is the clay mask which I use once a week #FaceMaskFriday Mix one scoop of clay with one scoop of Lavender Hydrosol (add more or less to get your preferred consistency) Apply to your face and leave on for 10 minutes (don't allow the clay to fully dry out) You can then use the bamboo face pad to remove. Simply soak the bamboo pad in warm water and pat all over your face. This helps to soften the clay which makes it easier to remove from your face. Do not scrub off of your face as this will irritate your skin, once the clay is wet you can simply wipe off.
Tone your skin using the Lavender Hydrosol. This helps to remove any remaining clay from your face, tones and helps prepare you skin for the next step
Add 2 - 5 drops of infused face oil to your face and rub in all over your face and neck.
Use your Jade roller to massage your face and help your skin to adsorb the oils you have just applied.
Consistency is key and healthy skin doesn't happen overnight. You have to look after your skin everyday from the inside out. Drinking plenty of water is essential for your skins health too so ensure you are drinking enough daily.
