A Guide to Using Earth Harbor Gems

1) CLEANSER

SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil

Sunshine Dew Cleansing Oil is a burst of sweet tropical sunshine in a bottle, and only needs a few silky dew drops applied to a dry face to help your skin feel fresh, soft, hydrated, and bright.

How Much to Use: 1-2 dropperfuls 

The Ritual: Gently shake. Apply to a dry face. Add tepid water and massage across your skin to dissolve oils and makeup. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. For a double cleanse, follow with a water-soluble Earth Harbor cleanser.

Customize: Mix a few drops of Sunshine Dew Cleanser with Blue Crush Mask or Citrine Sea Exfoliator for a powerful cleanse that combines phytochemical + physical exfoliation.

 

AHOY LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser

Feel the love when applying a small dollop of Ahoy Love Cleanser’s enlivening and creamy formula into moist skin to help your skin feel nourished, hydrated, and ultra-cleansed.

How Much to Use: Small dollop

The Ritual: Cleanse by gently massaging into moist skin in circular motions. Rinse well with warm water and gently pat with a soft washcloth. Double cleanse as needed.

Customize: Turn her into a soothing mask! Add a few spritzes of Tidal Rose Crystal Hydration Mist or a few drops of any Earth Harbor treatment to a generous scoop of Ahoy Love. Massage into skin and leave on 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

 

 

2) MASK

BLUE CRUSH Marine Perfecting Mask

You only need 1-2 tsp of Blue Crush Mask to use her as either a mask or cleansing powder to help remove your top layer of skin to reveal newer, brighter, and smoother skin. 

How Much to Use: 1-2 tsp

The Ritual as a Mask: Start with a clean, moist face. Mix 1-2 tsp and add water drop by drop until a nice paste is formed. Scoop a small amount into your fingertips, or for easier and smoother application, use a Mask Ritual Brush. Massage into skin in circular motions. Let mask sit cute for 5-10 minutes to work her magic, and then remove with warm water. Follow with a cool water splash. Keep in a dry place.

The Ritual as a Cleansing Powder: Pour 1-2 tsp into your hand and add water, drop by drop, until you reach a frothy consistency. Massage into moist skin in circular motions. Rinse.

Tip: To get the best results, use 2-3 times a week if you have oily to combination skin, or 1-2 times weekly if you have dry or sensitive skin.

Customize:  When using Blue Crush as a mask or cleanser, replace water with Tidal Rose Hydration Mist for a calming + toning effect. Also try replacing water with Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil for an ultra-replenishing dose of antioxidants!

 

CACAO COVE Detoxifying Indulgence Mask

Mix ½ - 1 tsp with a few drops of water for the most indulgent treat that will ever grace your face. Cacao Cove Mask is formulated to deeply detoxify, reduce existing blemishes, and improve the overall appearance of skin while delivering the yummiest of superfood skin nutrition.

How Much to Use: ½ - 1 tsp

The Ritual: Start with a clean face. Mix ½ - 1 tsp with a few drops of water until a nice paste is formed. Scoop a small amount into your fingertips, or for easier and smoother application, use a Mask Ritual Brush. Massage into damp skin in upward and outward circular motions. Let the mask sit cute for 5-15 minutes. Then remove with warm water before the mask is completely dry. Follow with a cool water splash. Keep in a dry place.

To get the best results, mask 2-3 times a week if you have oily to combination skin, or 1-2 times weekly if you have dry or sensitive skin.

Customize: In place of water, add Tidal Rose Crystal Hydration Mist for extra hydration and healing calm, or any Earth Harbor ampoule for hyper-targeted skin benefits.

Note: Created as a detoxifying + retexturing mask to benefit all skin types.

 

GLOW JUICE Refining Enzyme Mask

All you need is a small amount of Glow Juice Mask, a powerful fast-acting AHA/BHA gel mask that naturally resurfaces + cools + firms skin with Red Seaweed, Fruit Enzymes, White Willow Bark and Aloe Leaf Juice to reveal greater clarity, look of improved skin texture and tone, and a more youthful glow — all without irritating your skin.

How Much to Use: Small amount 

The Ritual as a Mask: Apply to clean skin. Leave on for 3 or more minutes. Rinse with warm water. Gentle tingling is normal as she works to lovingly resurface and exfoliate your skin. Follow with Tidal Rose Crystal Hydration Mist and an Earth Harbor moisturizer for optimal skin benefits. Use 2-3 times per week.

The Ritual as a Spot Treatment: Cleanse skin thoroughly, then apply a thin layer 1-3 times daily or as needed.

Customize: Mix with any Earth Harbor treatment to create a hyper-targeted moisture mask.

How Much to Use: Small amount

The Ritual: Moisten face with warm water. Stir around to mix the dreamy oils with the crystals. Scoop a small amount into fingertips and gently massage into face in circular motions, focusing on areas that need extra TLC. For maximum benefits, let her sit for 1-2 minutes. Rinse well with warm water, then pat dry. Tingling is normal and expected, especially during the first few uses. For sensitive skin types, use once weekly. 

Tip: Citrine Sea also works wonders as a treat for your entire body, particularly if you are battling dry skin, body blemishes/acne, or just want an overall skin-enhancing boost.

Customize: Mix with a few drops of any Earth Harbor ampoule for additional targeted skin benefits. Let sit for 2-5 minutes before rinsing well with warm water.

8) MOISTURIZER (OIL-BASED)

NYMPH NECTAR Superfruit Radiance Balm

Formulated to be a deeply moisturizing, wax-free perfecting balm for all skin types, Nymph Nectar balm only needs a small dollop applied to be used as a superior rescue treatment, or even a lip balm.

How Much to Use: Small dollop

The Ritual as a Moisturizer: After applying any desired treatment(s) to clean skin, emulsify a very tiny amount of Nymph Nectar between your fingertips and gently massage into your skin.

Wear her in place of water-soluble moisturizers, or layer her on top for an extra “oomph” of hydration. As she locks in moisture and works her magic, wait a couple minutes for your skin to fully absorb Nymph Nectar before applying makeup. Also apply her to any dry areas on your body.

The Ritual as a Sleeping Mask: For the last step in your nighttime ritual, apply a generous layer of Nymph Nectar and massage into your face, neck and décolleté. Let her absorb for 10 minutes before bedtime. In the morning, wash her off with warm water.

The Ritual as a Rescue Repair Treatment: Scoop a small dollop onto your fingertips and massage into affected area.

Tip: Nymph Nectar is also the loveliest way to moisturize lips and cuticles.

Customize: Add a few drops of any Earth Harbor treatment for a divine, personalized ambrosia. Or, for an ultra-rich overnight treatment, mix Nymph Nectar into a small dollop of Siren Silk Hydration Creme.
