A face mask, like a serum or moisturizer, improves the skin's general health by delivering highly concentrated actives, vitamins, and nutrients.
What's the difference? Face masks are occlusive, which means they provide a physical barrier that seals in beneficial ingredients and allows the skin to absorb them more effectively. Eminence Organics face masks deliver fast-acting results: think of them as a big weekly dose of vitamins to support your skin even further.

There a several ways to use an Eminence Organics face mask, but the most correct way is just to use one! Here are our favourite ways to get your glow on:
Single Masking: After cleansing, toning and exfoliating, apply a think layer of mask with fingertips to cleansed skin, avoiding the eye area. You may dilute with a bit of water for easier application.
What's better than one facial mask? Two facial masks! Create double the fun by layering one mask on top of the other, mix two together or layer in sequence.
Double Masking in Layers: The first type of double-masking involves applying one mask on top of the other in layers. Following cleansed, exfoliated and toned skin, layer one mask on top of the other. Start with one mask by applying a small amount to your entire face followed by a second mask on top. After waiting 5–10 minutes for the masks to dry, scrub them off in a circular motion with a lukewarm face cloth and then rinse the remaining formula off.
Double Masking in Sequence: Another unique way of double-masking is experiencing the products in sequence. Apply the first mask, wait, rinse, then apply the second mask.
Double Masking in Combination: Simply mix two masks together for double the fun!
