HONEY BERRY MASK: Enzymatic Glow
The beauty of the Honey Berry Mask: Enzymatic Glow is in its simplicity. With dense superfood ingredients that contain whole fruit acids, enzymes and antioxidants, this mask is a true multitasker. This nourishing treatment acts as a gentle brightening enzymatic exfoliator, a hydrator that visibly plumps and firms the skin, and an antioxidant-rich feast for an overall healthy glow. It’s no surprise that this all-skin, all-season facial mask has reached cult status. The honey and the fruits in this mask contain an abundance of enzymes, vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenols, and B vitamins. This mask is suitable for all skin types with the exception of extremely sensitive or reactive skin.
Containing 15 beneficial active ingredients and 100% whole plant organic, this mask is a beautiful choice for all skin.
Honey – Laurel Skin’s raw, organically farmed California honey is so fresh and vibrant that they pick it up every other week from the farmers market. Honey is an excellent choice for its intolerance for bacterial imbalance, meaning it halts the overgrowth of harmful bacteria colonies while still leaving allowance for a diverse beneficial microbiome to exist. It has gentle enzymatic action that works to turn over cells in a non-forceful way. It is incredibly hydrating and visibly plumps and firms cells.
Raspberries – Organic raspberries have dense vitamin C and bioflavonoid content. They are also high in enzymes and gentle acids which help to exfoliate, lighten, and brighten skin tone, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Blueberries – Blueberries are a superfood rich in all sorts of different antioxidants including anthocyanins, polyphenols, resveratrol, along with vitamin C and its helpful cofactors. Antioxidants work by preventing cellular damage from occurring by neutralizing free radicals and strengthening our skin’s overall health.
Blackberries – Blackberries grow abundantly in Laurel Skin’s California home. Like the other berries above, blackberries also contain vitamin C, and are an excellent source of manganese, which is an important building block for collagen formation.
Aronia Berry – Aronia is another fruit Laurel has been loving lately, because not only is it an antioxidant resveratrol rich superfood, but it grows effortlessly in most of North America. We love it when superfoods don’t have such a big carbon footprint! This one is grown for Laurel Skin by a farm in the Pacific Northwest.
Grapefruit + Sweet Orange – Both grapefruit and sweet orange essential oils are specific for balancing the skin as well as lifting the spirit. Both of these oils are hydro-distilled just for Laurel Skin; which means there is no concern for phototoxicity, since those furocoumarins in question are not even present in hydro-distillations.
Macadamia Nut Oil – Sorry if you have a nut allergy, this product is not for you! But Laurel Skin’s stunning small farmed Macadamia Nut Oil from the Big Island of Hawaii just had to be utilized in more products. It is rich in vitamin E, tannins, and essential fatty acids. Every time they open it, Laurel’s entire studio swoons over how beautiful this raw oil is. It is its own version of dessert, and makes the Laurel team all want cookies every single time.

˚signifies certified organic ingredient
Moisten face and hands. Apply 1 teaspoon or less of Honey Berry Mask to fingertips, then glide and massage over damp clean skin. Leave for 10-30 minutes, then rinse.
If your Honey Berry Mask has solidified or contains what looks like grains of sugar, that is just normal raw honey crystallization. Crystalized honey is not intended to be used as a manual scrub, which would be harsh on facial skin. Take a scoop of 1 tsp or less and warm it in your fingers until it softens, then gently pat onto skin. Add water and use normally. You can also place your entire jar of Honey Berry Mask in a hot water bath which will soften and liquify the honey.
Use within 6 months of opening and within 18 months of manufacture date on the bottom of the jar. Keep jar dry to prevent spoilage.
“I believe love is the most powerful healing tool available.” -Laurel Shaffer, Laurel Skin founder + skin-specific herbalist
Founded by skin-specific herbalist + plant communicator + engine of love Laurel Shaffer and located in a beautiful renovated barn in Petaluma, California, Laurel Skin is the culmination of Laurel’s winding journey filled with education, research, and extensive study that led to her path as a sommelier, and eventually skin-specific herbalist. Those formal training paths, as well as her experience in farm, spa, and mindful wellness, have made it possible for her to live the life of a slow beauty advocate and creator of farm-based and hyper-localized spa rituals and formulas. She walks a balance beam with one side in wonderment and appreciation of phytochemistry and the other a world of intuitive trust and respect for whole plant wisdom and ancient traditions. That balance allows her to create formulas of long-standing efficacy.
The Laurel Skin line is a ritualistic range of flower and herb-based skincare, formulated with impeccably sourced, highly vibrant whole plants picked at their peak for unmatched transparency, purity, and results. Firmly rooted in the principles and practices of slow beauty, Laurel’s first and most critical relationship is with the land. Her exclusive partnerships with local artisan farmers ensure the highest quality and most stringent transparency. Their mutual commitment to only 100% organic, raw, unrefined plant materials guarantees unparalleled freshness and efficacy. Laurel Skin believes beauty should be a loving self-care practice that begins and ends with mindfulness.
Leading the way with unparalleled sourcing, a commitment to farmers, and a mission built on transparency, the Laurel Skin line captures California’s hearty terrain and natural abundance in each and every bottle, and relies on their own manufacturing and production capabilities to ensure the freshest, most efficacious products are produced.
Every single whole plant they work with is certified organic or certified Biodynamic®, and they make no exceptions. Laurel Skin partners with artisan farms within 100 miles of their Lab to source all of the flowers and herbs that can grow in their California climate. They begin working with their partnering farms in the Winter during seeding and continue through to harvesting season when each plant is picked at their peak of vitality. Once the plants are harvested, they make their way to the Laurel Skin Lab where they are turned into plant medicine for the skin. Of course, each plant is processed as little as possible to maintain the freshness, purity, and vitality of each plant. Laurel extracts are made in-house, without the use of chemicals, to preserve the integrity and efficacy of the whole plant. All oils used in Laurel Skin creations are certified organic or Biodynamic®, raw, cold pressed, unrefined, and pressed fresh for Laurel by the farms that grow them or by artisan pressers. Their oils are richly hued and have an unmistakably fresh smell: indicators that they are pure and unrefined. Laurel uses only certified organic and Biodynamic® essential oils; many of which are distilled in incredibly small batches just for the Laurel line. Every hydrosol they use is certified organic or Biodynamic® and made exclusively for Laurel Skin by their artisan partnering farmers along the west coast.
Laurel Skin is committed to your health, well-being and, as a result, your beauty. Their commitment begins with the quality of the soil that nourishes and optimizes the ingredients they select. This is the foundation of slow beauty. The Laurel team then follows each ingredient from seed to harvest. Through the season it takes to grow their plants, to the months their handmade blends sit steeping, to the hours they spend bottling each batch, the Laurel Skin team practices slow beauty with patience and intention. Their greatest reward is knowing you feel this when you use their products.
