A natural, vegan face mask can unleash your gorgeous inner glow at home. There's no need for expensive spa treatments when you have access to gorgeous products designed for home use. We hear from so many lovely ladies who aren't quite sure how to use a mask so we've covered it all in our latest piece. From how to use one, to what it does, how you can apply it and importantly, when you should exfoliate - pre or post mask?
Choosing a face mask can be daunting, there's so many on the market. For us, you can't go past natural, nourishing, plant-based skincare. Harsh chemicals such as silicone, parabens and fragrance are toxic to your health and skin. Instead, opt for natural, vegan, organic ingredients which will work with your skin, not against it.
Our Radiant Rose Mask is a relaxing, pampering salon treatment in a jar! It is made of nourishing botanicals which combine to give you a rose geranium scented vegan face mask. It works to revive dry, lifeless skin and reveal a soft and luminous complexion. Using this gorgeous mask a few times a week has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size and strengthen your skin from the inside out.
What Does A Rose Face Mask Do?
The naturally derived ingredients in our Radiant Rose Mask have been formulated specifically to promote healing and skin renewal. Betaine, Crambe Abyssinica and Olive Oil locks in moisture and strengthens the skin's barrier. We use concentrated rose geranium oil which is one of nature's super ingredients.
Our Radiant Rose Face Mask is:
- Antibacterial: the natural ingredients found in rose essential oils can help treat acne-prone skin.
- Anti-inflammatory: Rose oil can help treat rosacea, calm redness and soothe swelling in the skin.
- Hydrating: The combination of Shea Butter, Rose Oil and Olive Leaf Extract make this formula a powerful hydrating agent.
- Toning: Rose Oil helps to minimise pores and smooth the skin's complexion, naturally.
- Relaxing: The beautiful aroma of rose oil calms the mind and helps centre your busy mind. While this isn't a direct treatment for your skin, relieving stress is. Beauty starts from the inside out after all.
Our Radiant Rose Mask will:
- Calm your skin
- Cleanse your pores
- Improve skin tone
- Hydrate your skin
- Brighten dull skin
- Remove excess dirt and oil
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Improve skin appearance
- Treat acne
Our natural face mask is a gorgeous product and we're truly proud of the benefits it offers our beautiful customers.
How Often Should You Put A Fresh Face Mask On?
The beauty of our Radiant Rose Mask is in its formulation. The natural ingredients don't strip your skin of its natural oils (sebum) meaning you can use this product more frequently than you would say a heavy clay mask.
The delicate nature of rose geranium will replenish your skin rather than fight against it. For this reason, we suggest using our natural face mask 3 times a week or as desired. Any more than 3 times weekly will minimise the effectiveness and irritate your pores.
"The Radiant Rose Mask is my favourite product from Botani. I leave the mask on overnight 3 nights a week and the other nights I use the olive serum. In the morning my skin is soft and glowing. The fragrance is delightful. Thank you Botani for making such beautiful products." - Helen63 - 26/02/2019
Do You Exfoliate Before Or After A Mask?
Exfoliation is a crucial step that should never be skipped. Exfoliating your skin works to remove excess oil, increase blood flow and circulation and it improves the absorption of skincare. Think of it this way, older skin blocks pores and makes it difficult for skincare products to penetrate your pores. Exfoliating leaves you with clean, new skin ready to be treated effectively.

How Do You Use A Fresh Face Mask?
Firstly, you should analyse your skin type to ensure you've chosen the right product. We love the Radiant Rose Mask because it suits the majority of skin complications. It works to treat normal to combination skin, revive dry and mature skin and control oily skin. Our versatile rose mask is a must-have in your beauty kit.
Before applying the mask, we suggest cleansing your skin to remove any make-up and grime.
When choosing a cleanser, ensure it's tailored to your unique needs. If you have normal, oily or acne-prone skin, our Purify Facial Cleanser is sulphate-free, pH balanced and poised to remove any impurities in your skin without stripping away your natural oils.
For dry, mature or ultra sensitive skin, you can't go past our Olive Soothing Cream Cleanser. This nourishing, creamy formula has been designed to calm irritated skin without compromising hydration. The olive element activates while cleansing to leave the skin feeling soft and supple.
Once you've cleansed, prepare your skin for our natural face mask. Exfoliate to ensure all old skin cells and grime are removed. Follow up with our Soothing Facial Mist which acts as a toner and provides instant hydration to tired dull skin. By applying this first, you are opening your pores and preparing them for treatment. The rosewater and chamomile ingredients smell delicious but also work as a calming agent for your skin.
Now you've prepared your skin thoroughly, it's time to apply your mask. You can use clean fingertips, a paintbrush or an unused cotton cloth if you desire. Apply a thin layer evenly, ensuring you've reached under the chin. Avoid the eye area.
Next, relax while the organic ingredients work their magic. Brew a lovely herbal tea, listen to some calming music and take a moment for yourself. Remove after 10 to 15 minutes using a warm washcloth or new cotton pad.
To complete your treatment, finish off with a gorgeous face serum which will hydrate and treat your skin from the inside out. Our Olive Skin Serum contains olive squalene which is an essential hydrating liquid designed to mirror your skin's natural oils. Our Acai Berry Active Antioxidant Serum will speed up your skin's natural repair systems by promoting cellular regeneration, leading to brighter, more even-toned skin.
The Radiant Rose Mask is part of our rejuvenate range which is protective, hydrating and restorative. Boosted with antioxidants, cell-renewing and ultra-hydrating botanicals, this range prevents and treats signs of ageing including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and dehydration.
Botani Skincare is formulated using premium active botanicals, food grade and superfood ingredients to deliver real skin results. We say no to artificial colours, animal testing and animal derived ingredients, synthetic fragrances and toxic chemicals. Utilising a clever blend of healing, anti-inflammatory botanicals, our products soothe and nourish the skin.
