You've surely heard of matcha these days! From matcha lattes at your local coffee house to matcha bubble tea at a boba cafe, this popular green tea powder is everywhere.  But matcha isn't just a trendy beverage, its high antioxidant content and polyphenols make it a worthy skincare ally as well.


Our Matcha Latte Bubble Tea mask strikes the perfect balance between effectively drawing out impurities with purifying clays, nourishing with superfoods, and soothing with anti-inflammatory herbs. The end result is skin that looks clearer with visibly smaller pores and a reduction in the appearance of breakouts.  It is gentler than most clay masks, but produces the same powerful, detoxifying results. Plus it's so fun! Matcha powder combines with coconut milk powder to make for an authentic latte for your face! 


And what's even more fun is that this mask is ALSO a gentle cleanser! We've included a gentle coconut-based bubbling surfectant so this product can be either a mask OR a poweder-to-foam facial cleanser.  The only difference is in how you decide to use it. For a spa-worthy mask, use just a little liquid to create a paste; for a cleanser, use enough water to create a lather. Either way you choose to utilize it, you'll enjoy the results!


Full ingredient listing:

Kaolin clay, French Green clay, Tapioca starch, Matcha powder, Coconut milk powder, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Colloidal oatmeal, Aloe vera powder, Nettles, Moringa leaf, Marshmallow root, Chamomile, Camelia sinensis (green tea) oil, & Essential oils of: Geranium & Green Tea Co2


The greatest benefit of a clay mask? You get the option to completely customize it for your skin type by choosing the activator (liquid) that works best for you! 


How to Use as a Facial Cleanser:  Simply scoop out a teaspoon or so of powder into your palm and add enough water to make it foam when you rub your hands together. Massage into skin, being careful to avoid your eyes, then rinse and pat dry. 

How to Use as a Mask: First wash your face to ensure it’s clean. Using a wooden spoon (no metal!), scoop out approx. a teaspoon of the mask mixture into a glass or ceramic bowl. To activate your mask, add one or more of the following liquids to fully customize your mask.  
•    filtered/distilled water 
•    hydrosol of your choice (I would do rose, geranium, lavender, calendula or chamomile)
•    cooled green tea/matcha or herbal tea of your choice (chamomile, nettle, calendula, etc) for a mineral and antioxidant rich mask
•    apple cider vinegar or witch hazel for an astringent mask (oily/acneic skin)
•    aloe vera juice/gel (sensitive/mature/dry skin)
•    honey and aloe for a moisturizing, enzyme rich mask (dry/sensitive skin)
•    yogurt for a cooling, probiotic mask (dry/sensitive skin) 
•    1-2 pumps of your favorite facial oil for a deeply replenishing mask (dry/sensitive/mature)
Start with a teaspoon (equal proportion to your clay) and add by the drop until you get a nice paste consistency. You don’t want your mask to be too thick, as you want to apply a thin layer across your entire face and neck. But you also don’t want it to be too runny or it won’t stick. 

When your mask is the appropriate consistency, test a small amount on the inside of your wrist to ensure your skin doesn’t react.  Apply a thin layer of the mask with your fingertips over your face and neck, avoiding delicate eye and lip areas. A mask brush or large foundation brush provides an even application. Leave the mask on for 5-15 minutes. Spritz your face with water or toner to keep the mask moist. Continue to spritz every time you feel the mask reaching the dry phase so that you can keep the mask on for the maximum time. But don't exceed the recommended time as there is no added benefit.  Follow your instincts – if the mask starts to feel uncomfortable, you can remove it.  It will start to feel sticky as it dries, and this sticky phase is the time to remove it. Once it is dry (or before, if it isn’t drying quickly due to being on very thick), rinse your mask off with lukewarm water and blot gently with a damp cloth to remove mask completely. Spray skin with toner and follow up with your favorite moisturizer. 

To target blemishes, mix 1tsp of the mask mix with enough lemon juice to make a paste. Apply to entire face or as a spot treatment directly to blemishes. You may wish to add a drop of tea tree oil to the paste for added effectiveness. Wash off after 5 minutes. 

Follow up your mask application with a toner or moisturizer. We recommend using weekly. Understand that a consistent routine of masking weekly will have the most profound effect on your complexion and improve your skin over time, without any side effects. We are proponents of the slow and steady approach as it yields long term results and supports optimal skin health. I recommend setting aside a special time of your least busiest day of the week and taking a self-care time-out. 


CAUTION: Use extreme caution when opening product as powder is loose and will make a mess if spilled. Do NOT inhale powder.  Do NOT allow any liquid to enter jar and do NOT expose product to humid environment. Do NOT put wet fingers into product jar. Use a wooden mask spoon to spoon out product. Discard product if any such contamination occurs. Disontinue use immediately if any irritation occurs. If your skin is particularly sensitive, conduct a 24hr patch test on wrist before applying to face.

Matcha Latte Bubble Tea Mask

  • Are you using your clay mask correctly?

    Clay masks offer a deep cleansing boost that you might otherwise not be getting from your normal skincare routine. The biggest misconception when using a clay mask is that it should remain on the skin until it becomes dry and flaky. You just kick back with a glass of wine and wait until your skin feels like a dried up desert creek bed, right?! Wrong! LOL

    A clay mask goes through three distinct phases when applied to the skin: 

    • Damp phase - as clay absorbs water, it expands and expels impurities from your pores while the active botanicals go to work improving your skin terrain
    • Slightly dry phase - as the mask begins to cool and contract, circulation is boosted. This is the optimal time to remove your mask! When it just begins to dry and lightens in color but is still tacky to the touch.
    • Completely dry phase - moisture is drawn from the surface of the skin, causing skin to be dehyrated and irritated.  
  • Ingredient Highlights:

    • Premium organic matcha green tea powder contains high levels of powerful antioxidants that support skin structure and promote cell turnover. It’s particularly high in a compound called epigallocatechin gallete, or EGCG, which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and is known for its anti-bacterial properties, making this mask a boon for acne-prone or inflamed skin.
    • Nettle leaf, a superfood like no other, provides loads of vitamins and minerals to nourish cells with every possible building block to support each aspect of healthy skin functioning.
    • Moringa leaf powder helps repair skin cells, boosts collagen production, calms skin irritations, and balances sebum production.
    • A combination of soothing French Green clay and gentle kaolin clay absorb impurities, repair damaged skin, soothe irritation and inflammation, enhance skin elasticity, brighten the complexion and leave skin looking and feeling softer, smoother and more supple.
    • Colloidal oatmeal reinforces the skin's protective barrier, acts as a moisturizing emollient to soothe dry, irritated skin and improve moisture retention, and reduces redness.
    • Coconut milk powder is packed with essential amino acids called medium chain triglycerides (MCT's) that are known for anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also acts as a super hydrator and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.
    • Marshmallow root powder possesses intensive hydrating, softening and balancing properties and continuously works to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture. It’s also been said to have anti-inflammatory benefits, which can be helpful for those with rosacea or eczema.
    • We’ve also added a modest amount of green tea Co2 extract for its age-defying effects, along with balancing geranium.
