The 'Perfect' DIY Face Mask

by Vanessa Santos February 08, 2016

Happy New Year beauty seekers! One of the best resolutions for 2016 is to take better care of your skin.  As you know, at STU we love all things DIY. When it comes to your face though, I'd be careful busting out the pantry ingredients. Here is a happy middle...

First - a little background on PHINA'S LITTLE FACTORY.  A homespun brand started in 2013, that has gained quite a cult following. I met (and have become good friends) with Phina Gono, the owner & founder. She is an amazing woman with such beautiful skin - you would never be able to tell that she is already a grandmother! Her passion lies in creating soaps and skincare of the best quality, that are handmade with love. The rest as they say is history.

Here we go...



A perfecting mask that deep cleanses and gets rid of toxins and impurities, pushing them out to the surface of your skin. Adding the PERFECTING POTION is that extra step to make skin supple and not dry, as the clay absorbs the oil and moisture on your skin. Lastly, a generous dose of Vitamin C is added to achieve youthful, glowing skin. It is a vital component to help in our body's collagen production and it is also a potent anti-oxidant which helps rejuvenate aged & photo-damaged skin. 



    1pc 70ml Green Clay + Goat's Milk Mix

    1pc Pure Vitamin C Powder Bottle

    1pc 100 ml Perfectionist Potion

        1pc reusable plastic cup or 5pcs disposable paper cups

          1pc mixing spoon


            HOW DO YOU USE IT?

              STEP 1: Measure 4tsp. of Green Clay & Goat's Milk Mix and put into the mixing cup.


              STEP 2: Add 5ml of Pure Vitamin C powder.

              STEP 3: Mix in 2 tsp. of the Perfecting Potion.

              STEP 4: Add 1 tsp. water.

              STEP 5: Mix well and apply onto clean face with a brush or hands. Massage into skin with a gentle circular motion. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes.

              STEP 6: Use a damp face towel to wipe off mask, then rinse off excess with warm water.

              SOME HELPFUL TIPS:

              *Do not let clay mix come into contact with anything metal, as this will reduce the effectiveness. Use the wooden or ceramic spoon and mixing cups provided as much as possible.

                **If using for the first time, use only once a week.  After than you can increase to three times a week for the second week, and down to maintenance of once a week after using for a month. 

                ***Optional - Before Mask: cleanse face with the bonus DETOX glycerin soap. After Mask: Spritz on Rose Water Toner and apply Conditioning Serum during the day, and Healing Serum at night.




                  PHINA'S PERFECTIONIST MASK KIT is the 'perfect' complement to your personal skincare regimen. It is the much needed boost to revive your skin on a weekly basis. You will notice lighter pigments, tighter pores, and a more radiant complexion.  

                    Go ahead and enjoy some DIY skincare. Beauty should always be fun!
