Clay Blender Kit
"You can create endless formula's to tackle every type of skin, face, body, and hair concern possible." -New Beauty Magazine
The Clay Blender Kit allows you to pick and choose from 8 items, depending on your skins’ mood! Giving you all the options without having to choose. Become your own artisan and blend to your hearts desire. Endless formulas, endless solutions. Customize your own face, body, or hair mask.
Clays work as a sponge to soak up any impurities from your skin as it drys. Each type of clay is unique in its own right and holds special benefits. When combined with certain blend in’s, these masks can hydrate, generate skin cell renewal, unclog pores, exfoliate, clear blemishes and redness, relieve scalp of itchy irritation, and even restore hair elasticity and shininess. Recommended recipes are listed on each jar. Get your friends together for a home spa day, experiment on your husband or boyfriend, or just have a relaxing night in!
Kit includes 8 items (4 bases + 4 blend-in’s) and the ‘wet’ ingredient will be added by you at home.
Moroccan Ghassoul, 2oz
Excellent at relieving dry and uneven skin tones, leaving a smoother texture. Less irritating than most clays. Recommended for sensitive skin types.
Suggested Formula: to nourish + mend, blend 1/4 tsp moroccan ghassoul, 1/4 tsp HEAL blend-in, 1 tsp purified aloe leaf gel (optional substitute floral water) for one facial application.
Shampoo 1-2 Tbsp clay and 1-2 cups purified water (depending on hair length/thickness). For shine + elasticity. Scalp mask treatment 2-3 Tbsp clay and 3/4 cup rosewater (depending on hair length/thickness). Recommended for oily/flaky scalps. Cleanses scalp of any residue for volume + bounce.
Once hydrated with your ‘wet’ ingredient, this clay mask will produce an electrical charge, causing a ‘swelling’ effect that will draw out toxins and impurities from skin.
Suggested Formula: for clear skin, 1/4 tsp bentonite + 1/8 tsp activated charcoal, and 1 tsp rosewater. After washing away mask, wait 5-10 minutes and then apply 2-3 of drops of CLEAR blend-in on cotton round and distribute evenly onto face. Bentonite may leave skin red depending on level of skin sensitivity. Should reside approximately 30-60 minutes after use.
Mouthwash 1 Tbsp clay mixed with 1 cup of water to disinfect and promote oral hygiene.
Bath 1-2 Tbsp added to warm bath for detox.
French Green Clay, 1.5oz
Excellent tightening and toning capabilities that will also leave pores visibly smaller. Stimulates blood flow, which will leave skin tone with an overall ‘glow’ or brightening effect after first use.
Suggested Formula: for firmer + hydrated skin, 1/4 tsp french green clay, 1/4 tsp ANTI-AGING blend-in, 1 tsp yogurt.
Deodorizing foot treatment 1-2 Tbsp clay, 8-12 drops of CLEAR blend it (anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties) and 1 cup purified water. Apply to feet and wrap with warm towel for approximately 15 minutes and then gently wash off.
Activated Charcoal (from coconut shell), .5oz
Binds dirt, bacteria and pollutants/toxins from skin. Use care when blending, as coconut shell activated charcoal is not only more effective, but also more dusty than other kinds of activated charcoal. It will bind to skin (or teeth) more than usual, sometimes leaving residue, so be sure to leave a warm wash cloth on face for a few minutes to open up pores before scrubbing off. When using as teeth whitener, brush and rinse multiple times. Will easily stain fabrics and porous materials.
*we recommend using EXFOLIATE blend-in when making a face/body mask as any other blend-in will increase residue left behind. Other blend-in’s will be excellent for spot treatments, insect bites, rashes, etc.
Suggested Formula: for dull skin, 1/4 tsp activated charcoal, 1/2 tsp EXFOLIATE blend-in, 1 tsp aloe vera gel.
Additional Uses: Teeth whitener- dab a small amount onto toothpaste. Do not over use this method as it can wear down tooth enamel, leaving you with sensitivity.
Insect bites/rashes- add a few drops of the CLEAR blend-in to clay and it can used as spot treatment on mosquito/ant bites, bee stings, rashes, etc.

In the mood for a luxurious facial treatment? Just add ARTISANskin Face Serum beneath your mask! The clay mask will cause the serum to penetrate deeper into the pores and also mix into the clay mask itself as an added moisturizing blend in.
For consistent results, follow ARTISANskin's Skin Revolution Facial Ritual.
4 wooden mixing sticks are included in each kit. Caution must be used when blending clays using metal utensils/bowls because of their natural electrical charge. Doing so will take away from their molecular components and decrease its benefits, so we suggest using glass or wooden bows with the mixing sticks provided. They can also be used as an applicator to apply mask onto face or body after blending.
***Always perform a skin test patch before applying full mask.
