The Mermaid Mask
Thick, dark emerald green, and sweet…intoxicating to the skin…addicting to the soul. Leahlani Skincare’s Mermaid Mask captures every skin type and leaves it regenerated and even. Packed full of amazing ingredients the skin soaks each one up to work synergistically to reveal the healthy skin we all have waiting to be revealed.
Hawaiian raw honey, Hawaiian spirulina, chlorella, sea buckthorn, luminess algae, french green clay, blue tansy and 14 other botanicals make up this delicious mask.
Raw Honey is a humectant, so it draws moisture to the skin. Plus it is full of enzymes that really give your skin a moisturizing boost.
Hawaiian Spirulina, one of natures superfoods, is packed with nutrients. This sea going cyanobacterium is full of vitamins A, B12, K, phytonutrients and antioxidants. It is one of the reasons this mask has such a captivating color, Hawaiian Spirulina is dark green and translucent in nature. On our skin it aids in reducing acne, premature aging, dullness, and redness.
Chlorella, another blue/green sea creature that’s great for our skin. This algae increases cellular turnover and boosts the production of collagen. Containing high amounts of vitamin A, iron, and B vitamins it packs a serious nutritious punch.
Sea Buckthorn is a scrub that has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. Containing over 190 nutrients including loads of vitamin C, Vitamin E, and omega fatty acids. Great for healing the skin and combating premature aging.
Luminess Algae another green skin loving sea creature that intensifies cellular regeneration and energy. This leaves the skin glowing from within, giving it a radiant look.
Silken French Green Clay does great a detoxing the skin. Perfect for acne prone skin it gently draws out toxins without being harsh or drying.
The Mermaid Mask is very thick, fortunately it comes with a tiny spatula. I always mix mine well and apply a heaping quarter size to my palm. Due to its thickness it needs to be diluted with just a few drops of water before use.
Immediately after it is spread on my skin I can feel it working. Any itching, irritated spots are promptly soothed. I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, during which I spray my face with my favorite toner (or try Leahlani's Orange Blossom Toner). Don’t expect the mask to dry, as the honey keeps moist the entire experience.
After I rinse with warm water, I immediately tone my skin and finish with a serum or moisturizer. Unsuprisingly, my skin is supple, hydrated, and soothed. Any problems areas are noticeably calmed and a perfect balance of hydration is achieved. After just one use this mask made its way into my weekly rotation. Now I look forward each week to looking like a green sea monster because my skin glows afterwards.

Honey Love Microdermabrasion 3-in-1 Cleanser
Another delicious honey based creation this gentle Honey Love Cleanser will have you begging for more. It is easy to see why this is a top seller. A light mauve/brown with an ediable hibiscus scent. This is another products that suits all skin types, but especially those with acne and sun damage. The nutrients are blended to tighten pores and balance oil production. Plus stimulate new cell growth…something everyone could benefit from.
Hawaiian Raw Honey is again a star here, offering hydration, antibacterial properties, and skin evening enzymes.
Organic Hibiscus, Chamomile, and Lavender Flowers gently exfoliate and also soothe troubled skin. Plus they offer anti-inflammatory compounds to reduce redness.
Organic Jojoba Oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory plus is balances sebum production. The natural fatty acids and vitamins E and Bs give this wax it’s unique characteristics. It is lightweight and absorbs easily, resulting in supple skin.
Corundum Crystal Powder is where the microdermabrasion component is from. Corundum is a very hard mineral. It is actually the hardest mineral second to a diamond! For the Honey Love Cleanser the Corundum is ground into a power fine form, just big enough to exfoliate our skin with gentle pressure.
The Honey Love 3-in-1 allows us to choose between a gentle cleaner, hydrating mask, or gentle exfoliant. You see, the microdermabrasion crystals settle to the bottom of the jar, so when you only want to cleanse simply use the contents at the top half of the jar. When your ready to exfoliate, stir the contents making sure to get all the wonderful crystals at the bottom. And for the mask, use either method and leave on your face for 20 minutes.
Speaking of the cleanser, alone it is very gentle and soothing. Honey cleansing has long been a favorite of mine and Leahlani Skincare makes it easy to do. As for the microdermabrasion it is wonderfully powerful and yet gentle; revealing polished smooth skin with each use. Perhaps due to the slip of the honey, when I am exfoliating it feels more like a massage than anything harsh or abrasive. This makes it a great choice for acne troubled skin as often scrubs irritate the sensitive skin and only cause more breakouts. The third component, the mask, is as equally impressive as the other uses. It reveals a dewy complexion and baby soft skin.
My favorite way to use this is a gentle exfoliation followed by her Mermaid Mask. Afterwards my skin is feels revived and happily normal.
