Potion Pointers

Potion Handmade
FACE

Potion Handmade’s line of non-toxic face care products provide green solutions to your most perplexing skin conundrums, from acne or blemishes and dryness, to wrinkles, congestion, and beyond.

Our handcrafted creations are comprised of all-natural, botanical ingredients that soothe, protect, and heal. There is nothing synthetic hidden in any of our original recipes. And our high standards extend to the packaging; we use gorgeous cobalt blue glass containers so plastic chemicals don’t leach into our Potions.

Potion Handmade face care products are crafted in micro batches, so they are fresh as can be! We include batch #s, made on and best by dates for full transparency. Everything we offer is 100% gender-neutral -  made for all humans ages 10 and up.

Here are the 4 components of Potion FACE Care...

1) Cleansing:

Botanical Cleansing Oil - Use nightly, occasionally alternating with Gentle Face Scrub.

Gentle Face Scrub - Use 1 night a week or once every 2 weeks.

Face Forward Mask - Use once a week or once every 2 weeks.

2) Blemish Banishing:

Gentle Face Scrub - Use once or twice a week.

Face Forward Mask - Use once a week or once every 2 weeks.

Clear Complexion Toner - Use daily.

3) Toning:

Skin Soothing Tonic - Use as needed to aid skin discomfort.

Morning Toner Upper - Use every morning.

Glow Complexion Spray - Use daily (especially at night or throughout the day) - essential for hydrating dry skin. Apply to clean face and decolletage.

Clear Complexion Toner - Use daily - crucial for battling breakouts. Apply to clean face and decolletage.

4) Moisturizing:

Motherlode Face Serum - Use morning and night, after cleansing and toning. Gift your skin the richest, most nourishing and reparative natural oils. Motherlode (defined by Merriam Webster as "the principal source or supply") is the mother of all allies in the battle against time, dryness, and pollution (keep one at home and one on you for a midday pick-me-up). A little goes a long way. An A+ remedy for mature and dry skin but certainly suitable for all ages. 

Under-Eye Sleep Salve - Use nightly after cleansing and toning. As with Motherlode, a little goes a long way. Also fantastic for mature and dry skin. 

 

The Potion FACE Care Regimen

 
Evenings:

Potion recommends reserving all cleansing for the evening. Our faces need a break from scrubbing and washing - we’ve been over-doing it and stripping our skin of necessary oils, causing all sorts of problems.

Dispense 6 pumps into palms of hands, and massage Botanical Cleansing Oil in upward strokes onto face and decolletage - keep out of eyes. Soak a clean washcloth with water as hot as you can stand - without burning, wring it out, and gently wipe off all cleansing oil in upward circles. Repeat if necessary. Keep out of eyes.

For exfoliation, use Gentle Face Scrub once a week or once every two weeks for evening cleansing. This helps cellular turnover and allows for moisturizing products to permeate skin.

Once a week (or every two weeks, depending on skin type - oily/acneic skin may benefit from using once a week) after cleansing, gently rub Face Forward Mask in upwards circles onto cleansed face and decolletage, let sit and firm up for 5 - 10 minutes, and rinse with lukewarm water. If you have acne-prone skin, follow with Clear Complexion Toner to help keep unwanted eruptions at bay. For dry and/or mature skin, follow with Glow Face Elixir.

On regular cleansing evenings (when using Botanical Cleansing Oil), choose from either Skin Soothing Tonic (for sensitive, irritated skin), Glow Complexion Spray (for dry skin), or Clear Complexion Toner (for acneic skin) to tone and hydrate. Dispense skin beverage into palms, rub hands together, and press into skin. Let it air dry.

Apply Motherlode Face Serum onto wrinkle zones by pressing into skin with clean, dry fingers and palms of hands.

Softly tap on a super-thin layer of Under-Eye Sleep Salve with the pads of clean ring fingers onto areas directly under and to the sides of eyes. Do not place on eyelids.

Have sweet dreams!

Mornings:

Simply splash your face with cool water to remove “sleepy bugs” or “crusties” and pat dry.

Spritz a few pumps of Morning Toner Upper onto face, neck, and decolletage, avoiding eyes.

Apply Motherlode Face Serum (using pressing method) to wrinkle zones and other areas requiring moisture.

Follow with choice of facial sunscreen and regular makeup routine or go au naturel!
