    Simply mix 1 tbsp of the clay mask with 1 tbsp of water (add more or less depending on how thick you like your masks), apply to your face in a circular motion, then rinse off after 10 minutes. For an extra cool feel, place the mixed mask in the fridge an hour or so before application. Cool, calm, collected skin is the assignment this summer…

    Available in three colour combinations, snap one up for yourself or that friend who can’t help eyerolling her way through life. You’ll find us wearing ours on Mondays – because Mondays always deserve an eyeroll.
