I found this product originally on Pinterst but added in the activated charcoal. I thought it would make a great final addition to my Valentines Day gift set because it is a product exclusively for your face. This all natural face mask exfoliates, hydrates and purifies your skin leaving it soft, smooth and fresh. Activated Charcoal pulls impurities and toxins out of the skin while coffee grinds exfoliates and coconut oil moisturizes. I recommend leaving this mask on for about 10-15 minutes before exfoliating and washing off gently. ♥
Small Containers - I used 4oz Glass Jam Jars ** Remember to wash them first!
Coffee Grinds (fine) - 3oz x how every many you want to make
Coconut Oil- 1oz x how every many you want to make ***
Activated Charcoal - I got capsuled ones and removed the charcoal from the capsules, 1-2 for each 4oz jar
*** If you have a problem getting the coconut oil out of the container like I did I recommend using a technique called "sous vide". Please note that the container has to be made of glass to do this. Sous Vide is the process of placing sealed food (in our case the glass jar of coconut oil) in a bath of water and bringing the water to a boil in order to cook (or in this case melt) the contents.. Make sure to remove the lid when you do this as we are not trying to cook it just melt it and to use a cloth when removing the glass jar from the bath as it will be hot. Pictures included.
Place the coffee grinds in the food processor (you may have to do this in parts!) , add in your coconut oil and activated charcoal. Blend until well mixed well together.
If you did this in parts transfer food processor contents to a large bowl and repeat coffee, coconut oil, and charcoal mixture until everything is done. Mix large bowl contents together one last time with a whisk. The mask should look black and have a thick grainy consistency!
Scoop out and fill jars!
I hope you had as much fun making these and giving them away as I did! Please let me know your comments below or if you have any request!!!!! Id love to hear from you ♥ ♥ ♥
