Are you a skin mask addict? I’m obsessed with skin care and dry face masks. If you’re a skin care connoisseur or if you’re new to face masks or green beauty then this new monthly subscription box is for you. It’s made with the clean ingredients, affordable, and you can tell all the heart and soul that goes into everything from the creator and alchemist herself Marie.
Marie is the beauty and brains behind Face Mask Alchemy. She is so knowledgeable and funny and did I mention smart (she’s a nurse so when she talks chemistry listen, she knows her stuff)? What I love is she gives us all the tools to be successful with our self care ritual/discovery. Included with every monthly subscription is a tip sheet, a list of all the ingredients, how and what products to mix with the mask, and how to apply it. Plus Marie makes a you tube video going through the ingredients, the “why “behind the ingredients and how they work on our skin, how to use the mask, alchemy tricks/tips and you can see what the mask looks like on. I’ve been masking for a long time now, but feel like I’m learning new information from all her wisdom (my face mask painting is getting better too).
Face Mask Alchemy Monthly subscription $10.88
The June and July box were $12.00, however going forward, the August box will now be $10.88 for 22 grams of dry face mask. Marie indicated on Face Mask Alchemy Instagram that she always wanted to get the subscritpion box to ten dollars and I can’t believe she has done it. Such a steal, clean ingredients that work.
This monthly subscription box is different than other subscriptions out there (believe me I’ve been subscribed to so many, my husband would say too many) because they provide enough product to mask 3-5 times in a month so the product is gone by the time the next month’s dry face mask arrives at your door. Love it!
Not only will all the masks be made with clean ingredients, organic when available, their packaging is eco-friendly. Their containers are recycled post consumer resin plastic. Plus their mailers (see pic below) and labels are made from 100% recycled materials. A win win for us and our environment!
Now on to the First Face Mask Alchemy Box- June
June: Surfer Girl
The Surfer Girl was the first dry face mask for Face Mask Alchemy. So fitting for the ultimate surfer girl herself (I’m talking about Marie). It was handmade in Maui with clean ingredients like:
- sea clay
- organic coconut milk powder
- acacia fiber
- 2.5% organic tapioca maltodetrin
- organic hibiscus powder
- organic aloe gel powder
- organic none fruit powder
The subscription box includes the information card and tips and recipes see pics below.
FMA recommends to always do a patch test first to make sure you’re not sensitive to the ingredients. The information and tip/recipe sheets give detailed directions.
The first time I used Surfer Girl I mixed 2 teaspoons of the dry mask in my shell masking bowl (of course) with 2-3 teaspoons of water. I used my brush to easily apply the mask. I left it on for about 20 minutes while misting with a facial mist to keep the mask from getting dry. As you can see from the pictures below, the mask has a red color from the hibiscus and a tropical vibe. It left my skin feeling so clean, soft and smooth. So good!
The next week I followed Face Alchemy Recipe for parched or sensitive skin (hmm…mature): I mixed 2 teaspoons of Surfer Girl with 2 teaspoons of water and then 3-4 drops of Honua Skincare Beauty Oil. This mask can be mixed with any favorite face oil. After washing off the mask with warm water, my skin felt lightly exfoliated. It left my skin soft, smooth and with a pretty glow.
Can you tell every time I use Face Mask Alchemy I’m feeling the tropical vibe? Which flower will I wear next time? What will I mix it with next? Alchemy is so much fun and wearing flowers.
Face Mask Alchemy Masking Kit $18.00 sold separately (right now it is out of stock-maybe FMA will make more?)
The minute I saw this beautiful tropical inspired masking kit, I knew I had to have it for my masking ritual, especially when using Face Mask Alchemy masks. There is just something about the shell bowl and brush that brings masking to a whole new level for me.
The set includes:
- a beautiful white shell masking bowl-loving it
- black bamboo spoon- for scooping and mixing products
- masking brush- helps apply masks more evenly and feels like a spa treatment
- 0.35 ml fine mist spritz bottle- to prevent mask from drying
I know that this was the first month, but I am so impressed. I love FMA’s concept-a new mask every month. Plus all the tips and tricks Marie provides us with in the subscription, on the Face Mask Alchemy site, and her You Tube videos. She’s real (not offering miracle masks, but masks that work) and tells us what the mask can do for us by breaking down the ingredients so we can understand how it works and the reasoning behind every ingredient she uses in her masks. Plus the eco-freindly packaging, labeling. Most of all the mask works and is affordable luxury. I would definitely recommend this subscription box! I can’t wait for next month, and the next month, and can’t wait to see all the future boxes from Face Mask Alchemy.
Are you subscribed? If not you can subscribe here. Until next month, Happy Masking and Face Mask Alchemy!!!
