Rose clay is a naturally beautiful
skincare ingredient. It adds a soft, rosy hue to this Rose Clay Face
Mask. Rose clay has gentle oil-absorbing properties, making this mask
suitable for both dry and oil skin types. Scented with rose absolute,
this face mask is luxurious and pampering.
This face mask recipe
was specifically designed with dry, mature skin in mind. Rosehip seed
oil is rich in vitamin A and C, and intensely moisturizes without
leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. Chamomile extract soothes dry
skin, and is thought to be an anti-inflammatory. A downloadable label
template gives a finished and polished look.
Rose absolute is
extracted from rose petals, and gives the mask a soft, luxurious rose
scent. It is a pricey essential oil, but you don’t need much at all.
Just 1 mL of the oil is enough to elevate this mask to a truly pampering

blender, and any spoons or spatulas that may come in contact with your

CLAY PREP: In a small
separate container, measure 3.5 ounces of kaolin clay and 1 ounce of
rose clay. If you like, you can add them to the same container.
a heat-safe container, combine the avocado oil, rosehip seed oil,
BTMS-50 and Polawax. Heat the container in the microwave using 30-60
second bursts until the waxes have fully melted. Be careful when
removing the container, as it will be quite hot. Set aside.
- In a
separate large container, heat the distilled water in the microwave (or
on the stove top) until it reaches about 160-170 ° F. Once the water
reaches the correct temperature, some of it may evaporate. Remeasure and
add more distilled water if necessary until you have 21.4 ounces of hot
- Check the temperatures of both containers. Each
container should be about 160°-180° F. If the oil and wax mixture has
cooled, place back into the microwave until fully melted. Place the
stick blender into the water and burp it to help get rid of bubbles.
Pour the oil and wax mixture into the water and use a spatula to make
sure every little bit is added. Begin pulsing the stick blender. The
mixture will take on a “milky” appearance once the water, oil and waxes

clay that may be on the sides of the bowl. Check the temperature of the
mixture. Once the mixture is about 130-140°F, add the Optiphen, rose
absolute and chamomile extract. Stick blend (don’t forget to burp the
stick blender!) the ingredients in until fully mixed.
- Pour the
mixture into the bail jars. If you find you have a lot of bubbles on the
top, you can spritz the top of the containers with 99% isopropyl
alcohol to help get rid of some of them. Allow the containers to cool
for several hours with the lid open to avoid condensation. Once fully
cooled, the mixture will have become a thick, lotion-like texture. We
found that the top of the mask does form a bit of a skin as it dries. To
use, apply a medium layer to dry, clean skin. Avoid the immediate eye
area. Allow the mask to sit on the skin for about 10-15 minutes. Use
warm water to rinse off. There is no need to wash the skin after, but
you can if you prefer. If you have dry skin, do no use more than one
time per week.
