Announcing the winner of the Just the Goods giveaway, congratulations, Judy! We have sent you an email to confirm. 


Milena, the creator of “Just the Goods” skin care has been gracious enough to send this face mask recipe for you to enjoy. I have tried it and found it to be delightful. I am a bit amazed at how soft my skin is and how refreshed I feel! Don’t forget to check out Milena’s vegan skin products over at “Just the Goods“! They are amazing.  


Kaolin Clay and Cacao Face Mask

By Milena

Kaolin clay is a mild clay suitable for all skin types that is capable of drawing purities out and away from skin. Cacao is packed with antioxidants to help repair skin and flavanoids to reduce inflammation. The copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc in cacao can also promote healthy cell growth. Combined, these ingredients can help your skin feel fresh and cleaned, while also offering the aromatherapeutic pick-me-up benefits of chocolate.

Choosing to use green tea in this mask instead of distilled water can offer additional anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, which is particularly helpful around tried eyes.

Thank you for this recipe
What are we supposed to look for when buying Kaolin Clay?


Susan December 2, 2013 at 4:32 pm

I have included a link for the clay I used. Just click Kaolin Clay Powder in the recipe. Cheers!

Was wondering why it’s not good for eczema?

Hello Susan,

I would like to know where you purchase your Coconut oil? I have a hard time finding a good coconut oil. Alot of them say Extra Virgin Olive Oil . We know there is no such thing as Extra Virgin Olive Oil.So could you please let me know where you get yours. I’m almost out and need to buy more . I would really appreciate it if you could let me
know ASAP Thanks.

Have you tried Tropical Traditions? I have found it to be the best coconut oil I have ever tried and they run sales every month on varying products. I have shared it with friends and family and they all love it and want more. I use the Gold Label version. If you are not familiar with them, go to their website and read about it. All of their products are produced in the tropics (Gold Label using NO heat). I am only affiliated through receiving their emails. To me, it’s the best. Good luck!

Lovely looking recipe! This is one area I need to try (natural skin care). I have a friend who makes her own products as she is allergic to any chemicals. Simple really is best!

Recipe is easy looking forward to making it. Thanks so much!


Uli December 3, 2013 at 12:47 am

I am definitely going to try this. Thank you so much for posting this. I have started making lots of my own products – face cream, body scrubs and butter, shampoo and now the face mask. :-)

Thank you for the recipe! I just bought some clay at my health food store to try making my own mask and your recipe popped in my email! I’m allergic to cacao, but I’m looking forward to making a mask with green tea. :)

Thank you for posting this guest recipe, it’s perfect timing and I’m really happy to have found Just the Goods through Rawmazing…I haven’t placed an order yet but it’s bookmarked! I also wanted to say I love your body butter recipe, I’ve made it twice now and it’s heaven to my changing pregnant body ~in fact there’s a jar of it inches away as I type!!

Susan – Check out your local Health Foods Store – they should be able to show you several wonderful options for a high quality Coconut Oil – as well as all your other oils.


Selina December 10, 2013 at 9:55 am

can this be stored in a container as a gift?


Susan December 11, 2013 at 1:16 pm

If you want to make it as a gift, I would give the powder mixed but don’t add the water, just put a tag on it with instructions to add water and the amount. Cheers!
