It’s amazing what getting food on your face can do for your skin! Inspired by a raw dessert that went oh so wrong, Fat and the Moon’s Mermaid Mask does your hair and skin oh so right. Irish moss, honey rhassoul clay and aloe vera hydrate and bask your bod in nutrients brought to you by animal, vegetable and mineral. Dewy glow in a jar- straight up. For the face, this champ of a mask tones and moisturizers at the same time. Honey lends an antibacterial hand, so it’s a perfect mask for pimples and dry skin combos. For the hair, Mermaid Mask softens while adding body, and dare I say an un-earthly glow? It happened to my friend Em!
It’s amazing what getting food on your face can do
I first learned about this recipe through my friend Adriana, who tweaked the recipe from Rosemary Gladstar- one of my medicine woman icons. From this lineage, I've experimented and created my own recipe for the BEST cream I have ever used. This is coming from a real product whore, I still have an embarrassingly large stash. I would buy creams and lotions for my face, for my body, for my feet etc and found they would work great at first, but would soon lose their luster (hence the stash). This cream is truly an 'all' cream. I use it for my face and body and find a little goes a long way. A small dab is enough for my face. Love economy in products!
What makes this cream so great? I would say the perfect blend of hydrating and toning elements like aloe vera and rosewater, with moisturizers and skin protectors like organic sunflower oil and shea butter. The whipped consistency reminds me of cream cheese frosting, which doesn' hurt.
This cream is best when used within 4 months of purchase, if you stick it in the fridge it will last twice as long. Please select size accordingly. Fat and the Moon doesn't dabble in chemicals that make things last forever.
