The idea for this mask came about a long time ago, when I was still running my own cosmetics store in Brooklyn. I met a lot of customers who were asking for non-drying facial mask that doesn't need to be washed off. I noticed that there were definitely more masks for contaminated and oily skin on the market but less for sensitive and dry skin. From the moment I tried the oil from Milk Thistle and Chia Seeds (Spanish Sage), I knew that these light oils would be great for sensitive skin and they became the basis for my new moisturizing mask. I also wanted these ingredients to be in the mask as well: Aloe, Algae-Spirulina, Extract from Amaranth, Sea-buckthorn, Licorice Root, Chamomile. They all intensively support hydration, act as antioxidants and soothe irritation. This is a perfect mask for the summer in the form of a lotion. It can be used after sunbathing and anytime we feel our skin is dry and irritated. No need to wash it off or prepare it before use.
