Reparative mask for all skin types. Imhotep's Balsam is a finely milled powder mask that turns into a pleasantly sticky, easy-to-spread, comforting roots-and-herbs paste once you add water. The powder is a blend of laboriously ground Hawaiian alaea salt, nourishing chickweed, and redness-calming chamomile flowers, plus soothing and hydrating mucilage-rich roots of marshmallow and comfrey, brightening licorice, and more. This is a moisture-replenishing, barrier repairing, deeply conditioning mask for all skin types, especially dry, imbalanced, stressed, or with a compromised skin barrier.

All skin types, especially dry, sensitive, compromised, or with eczema, psoriasis, facial neuralgia, and perioral dermatitis.

If you are wondering which face mask is the right choice for you: Imhotep's Balsam is a hydrating and nourishing mask with a scent that is evocative of mystical temples and a cedar forest. It doesn't contain clay. We particularly recommend this mask for dry or sensitive skin.

Catharsis has a cooling, energizing, refreshing pick-me-up effect on the senses, also doesn't contain clay, and is particularly beneficial for acne-prone, scarred, pigmented, or inflamed skin.

Sungod is a rejuvenative mask based on wildflower pollen and several reparative herbs such as calendula and sunflower petals. We particularly recommend it for signs of premature aging and for dull or mature skin.

Measure out 1 teaspoon of the powder and mix with just enough water to achieve a workable, moist paste. Apply onto freshly washed, towel-dried skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Mist with a hydrosol or face toner while wearing the mask. Remove with cotton rounds or a wetted face towel.

For an even more nurturing mask, add 1 to 4 drops of a facial oil or oil-based serum to the paste, such as Magical Babassu Face Oil or Ruby Face Oil. Replace the water with Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist for yet another variation and an interesting scent twist.

I love a fab mask, especially one that works. And this one certainly does, to hydrate, soften, calm and nourish the skin leaving my complexion looking bright, clean and fresh. As smooth as a baby's bottom. I love to combine the powder with the Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist and a couple drops of beauty oil, preparing a paste in a teeny little bowl, then lay back in the bath and relax for 15 minutes. Bliss.
