An amazing gentle skin masque that is excellent for all skin types and incredible for those with troubled skin (read my story below ingredients list). The Coconut Milk, Honey Powder and Organic Oatmeal smell absolutely divine on application...almost like a cookie for your skin. This masque gently cleanses, softens and evens skin tone. Compare my quality ingredients, generous quantity (1 four ounce container filled to the brim with masque) and low price to the other more expensive face masks with similar ingredients on Etsy! When I use this masque before bed, my skin always feels so soft to the touch in the morning. This face masque is absolutely addictive.
This product is NOT VEGAN. It contains honey powder and the Coconut Powder contains a milk protein called casein.
This masque is also WONDERFUL used as a cleanser!! It is what I use daily in place of soap. Simply add a touch of water and mix into a paste, apply to damp face in a circular motion (avoiding eye area), let sit for about 2 minutes and let it tingle and clean your skin and then rinse off with warm water and a washcloth. I love using this as a substitute for soap, which can dry the skin out if used too often.
Listing is for (1) 4 oz. container of Masque. The label you'll receive on your masque jar is pictured in last photo.

MORE INFO\/MY EXPERIENCE
If lucky in life, every man and woman will come across a "beauty secret". After YEARS, I have FINALLY found mine and it is this amazing masque. I've battled with a pain in the ass complexion of troubled blemished skin with unbalanced sebaceous glands for years. I've tried all kinds of bizarre natural remedies, over the counter products etc. After trial and error, beta testing and years of research, I finally discovered a simple, but nevertheless amazing, ingredient for skin care: Oatmeal. I completely overlooked oatmeal and focused on clays, honey, smashing fruit on my face, cucumber\/yogurt\/lemon masks, etc. These were all nice home remedies, but never quite gave me the even skin tone that I was looking for. Oatmeal was the missing link.
I also had success with honey in my skin care recipes. This was my other miracle ingredient. Then I discovered gentle, skin softening and intoxicating smelling coconut milk powder and the base for my miracle masque started to materialize. Since I have been using this masque several times a week, my skin breakouts have significantly lessened and what insignificant amount of blemishes I do get go away within 2 days and are barely noticeable. My skin tone is more even, my pores are clearer and more refined, my scars have faded and my sebaceous glands have normalized! I will never go back to the commercial acne cleanser that I had been conditioned to believe I need.
I cannot promise that you will have the same results as I have achieved as all skin types or different, but trying this amazing skin food won't hurt and I think you will be very pleased!
