Good to know:
This Matcha Green Tea & Vitamin C Facial Mask & Polish is water activated and it contains Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which is kept stable under organic Pomegranate seed oil. Ascorbic acid Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that oxidises quite quickly in water, so its important that you make this Mask fresh each time you want to use it and we recommend using any you have left over as a wonderfully nourishing hand or foot scrub.
To keep this product at its best, KEEP THIS PRODUCT DRY and away from damp air.

You can use me BEFORE cleansing to loosen dead skin cells or after cleansing as a facial treatment before applying a Treatment Gel Or Treatment Oil. ★ It is inadvisable to use this mask more than once a week and please never scrub the facial skin as this can be very damaging to the delicate acid mantle of the skin and this damage can take many weeks to repair so please be gentle with your skin :-)
(1) Decant a small level teaspoon into a small bowl & blend with a little hand hot (not boiling)
water, using hot water will cause the rice flour to swell and bind with the oil into a smooth & thick creamy consistency.You will see the mask swell and emulsify together when with the oil when blended with hot water to a creamy consistency. The hot water will not damage the herbs.
(2) Apply to the skin with fingertips or a brush. Never scrub the skin. Leave the
mask on the skin for UP to 60 seconds and then rinse well with warm water
