East Coast Glow’s ultra-concentrated, waterless formula features the powerful absorption qualities of bentonite clay together with gentle kaolin clay to effectively expand facial pores. Activated charcoal then acts as a magnet to pull out debris and impurities while the dry, concentrated blend of wild adaptogens, vitamins and antioxidants sooth and replenish. The result is bright, flawless skin.
The Routine: Stir Aftershock powder with desired liquid and allow to hydrate for 1 minute. Add more liquid (oil, water, yogurt, hydrosol, etc.) one drop at a time until a paste forms and spread evenly over face and neck. Mist face with water or toner to keep masque wet for 10-15 minutes to keep the actives time to penetrate. If you like that pore tightening feeling, allow masque to dry completely before rinsing. Hate it? No problem! Rinse after recommended time and apply face oil and moisturizer. Easy peasy and fully customizable!
Our favorite routine? 1/2 teaspoon iceberg fireweed hydrosol, 2 drops blue tansy and squalene oil, and 1 tsp dry Aftershock powder. Mist for 15 minutes to keep masque wet on skin, then allow to dry for 10 minutes and follow with serum and moisturizer!
