Skin care rituals have become a little complicated, time consuming & expensive!! We’ve stripped things back and going back to the simplest of ingredients to cleanse, tone & moisturise. 

  • Light coconut oil (light coconut oil is liquid at room temperature so easier to work with)

  • Flower water – geranium, neroli, lavender, rosemary. 

  • Face oil. 

  • Cotton pads 

  • Flannel 

Optional: Wheatgerm oil / Rosehip seed oil to use around the eyes. 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. First of all remove your eye make up by applying a small amount of oil to your eyes and removing it with a cotton pad – we love using reusable cotton pads like these

  2. Massage coconut oil into face and neck. 

  3. Soak a flannel in hot water and cover face with it. Hold for a few seconds then wipe away oil. Excess dirt will be moved away & a little oil will stay on the face. 

  4. Spritz your face with your chosen floral water and wait for it to dry. If you’re in a mega rush just dab with a towel. 

  5. Next use your favourite face oil. We sell the beautiful Aphrodite Facial Oil by MOA

You can also try making your own facial oil with this simple formula. 

Face oil: 

  • 30 ml dropper bottle 

  • 20 ml base oil 

  • 10ml top up oil 

  • 10 – 12 drops essential oils.
