Face Food is a concentrated, dry powder that comes in a 4 oz. recycled glass bottle with a screw top. When mixed, it equals 8-10 oz. of liquid cleanser. It is soap-free, will not foam, and won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Face Food gently exfoliates and removes toxins, bacteria, oil and all that other yucky stuff your skin accumulates during the day. It's great as an everyday cleanser or as a mask 2-3 times a week.
As a cleanser, apply a small amount to the palm of hand and add water to make a thin paste. Massage into face in a circular motion, then rinse off.
As a mask, you can mix it with a myriad of choices from your kitchen (yogurt, honey, fruit/vegetable juice, mashed fruit, etc.), then apply to face and leave on for 5-15 minutes. Add a little water to your face, massage in circular motions, and rinse off.
Mix it with cleansing oil or toner for a cleanser/mask with added benefits.
Please Note: This Face Food does smell like seaweed.
