Your All-Encompassing Guide to Skincare Cocktails

In this blog, you will find everything you need to know about cocktailing Earth Harbor skincare gems including information regarding favorite cocktails, recommended cocktails, and adventurous cocktails. You will also find infographics, instructions, and descriptions for each cocktail and how to incorporate them into your skincare rituals to best suit your skin + needs!

Your all-encompassing guide to skincare cocktails is here! 

First, what is a skincare cocktail? A skincare cocktail is an act of combining two or more skincare gems before applying them. Cocktailing is a huge part of why Earth Harbor came to be with the intention of creating gems versatile enough for our ever-changing lives. The majority of Earth Harbor gems are chemically formulated to be cocktailed so that you can personalize each gem to meet your specific skin needs, preferences, and goals! Pollution, environmental stressors, hormone levels, stress levels, skin needs, climates, and seasons are constantly changing so, it’s very important to be able to adapt your skincare to maintain your mermaid glow – and cocktails are the perfect way to do that!

Earth Harbor gems are also formulated with cocktailing in mind to encourage low consumption and reduce the need to purchase new skincare to adapt to your life. We are super excited to share this extensive cocktail guide with you to ensure you’re getting the most out of your gems and also to save you steps in your skincare rituals!


REMINDER: Regardless of the season or your skincare cocktails, ECLIPSE Sheer Mineral Sunscreen should be applied every day as the last step in your morning skincare ritual!

 

Favorite Skincare Cocktails

Favorite Skincare Cocktail Breakdowns

A. Toner/Essence + Powder Mask Cocktails
Start with mixing your toner/essence with powder masks! (One of our favorites!) Use TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator in place of water when mixing either CACAO COVE Detoxifying Indulgence Mask or BLUE CRUSH Marine Perfecting Mask. This gives the powder masks a lush, calming, and toning effect. And the inclusion of CLOUDBURST gives it a gel-like texture!

B. Toner/Essence + Ampoule Cocktails
Mixing a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator with a few drops of any Earth Harbor ampoule before applying them to your face is a game-changer. In addition to toning, this cocktail manifests long-lasting moisture and hydration to your skin. It’s also great for delivering the benefits of ampoules without experiencing an oily texture.

C. Ampoule + Water-based Moisturizer Cocktails
To add an extra moisturizing factor to your moisturizer, add a few drops of any Earth Harbor ampoule with MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer, SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme, or AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme. Adding an ampoule ups the moisturization scale for any of our water-based moisturizers. This also helps with barrier protection which aids water loss a.k.a moisturization. Plus, adding an ampoule to your moisturizer adds an extra dewy finish if you’re looking for more dewiness in your complexion.

D. Ampoule + Serum Cocktails
This is the ultimate treatment duo. Mixing any Earth Harbor ampoule with any Earth Harbor serum will also help you to create a lightweight moisturizer catered to your specific needs. This also simply combines two steps making your skincare ritual shorter while still allowing your skin to indulge in the benefits of both the ampoule and the serum while adjusting the textures of each to your preferences.

E. Water-based Moisturizer + Serum Cocktails
Feed your skin with a rich medley of hyper-skin targeting ingredients by mixing a few drops of any Earth Harbor serum with MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer, SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme, or AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme. By mixing in serums to the water-based moisturizer you can create a milkier and lighter moisturizing experience with a drenched-in -hydration feeling.

F. Water-based Moisturizer + Oil-based Moisturizer Cocktails
Looking for an extra dewy complexion or combatting dry skin? Mix any of Earth Harbor's water-based moisturizers with any of our oil-based moisturizers (CALYPSO Elixir and NYMPH NECTAR Balm). This cocktail will provide deep moisturization to your skin when you’re looking for a heavy moisturization + hydration combination.

Other Recommended Skincare Cocktail Breakdowns

A. Powder Mask + Oil-based Cleanser Cocktails
Enhance your masking experience by replacing water with SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil or CITRINE SEA Purifying Exfoliation Potion when mixing either of Earth Harbor’s powder masks for an ultra-replenishing dose of antioxidants and purification. Mixing any of Earth Harbor’s powder masks with SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil creates a luxury double cleanse that washes clean with water. Mixing any of Earth Harbor’s powder masks with CITRINE SEA Purifying Exfoliation Potion creates a nourishing microdermabrasion masking experience altering and softening CITRINE SEA’s texture.

B. Powder Mask + Serum Cocktails
For targeted skin benefits, mix any Earth Harbor serum with BLUE CRUSH Marine Perfecting Mask or CACAO COVE Detoxifying Indulgence Mask. This also turns Earth Harbor’s powder masks into a unique creamy, hydrating mask as opposed to a purely detoxifying mask.

C. Powder Mask + Ampoule Cocktails
Powder masks can also be mixed with any Earth Harbor ampoule for hyper-targeted skin benefits. Try mixing CACAO COVE Detoxifying Indulgence Mask or BLUE CRUSH Marine Perfecting Mask with a few drops of your favorite Earth Harbor ampoule to unlock pure mermaid magic with this moisturizing mask cocktail.

D. Mask + Ampoule Cocktails
This is a treasure map to creating a hyper-targeted moisture mask. Simply mix GLOW JUICE Refining Enzyme Mask with a few drops of any Earth Harbor ampoule and watch as the cocktail works to lovingly moisturize your skin while gently phyto-resurfacing.

E. Toner/Essence + Water-based Moisturizer Cocktails
Create a nourishing lightweight moisturizer by mixing any Earth Harbor water-based moisturizer with a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator to condense steps while adding hyper-targeted skin benefits. This also helps you adjust the feeling of the moisturizers to your preferences (thinner, more hydration factor, more gel-like, etc.).

F. Toner/Essence + Serum Cocktails
Try mixing a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator with a few drops of any Earth Harbor serum for both lightweight nourishment and toning hydration. This is also a great cocktail for customizing serums to your preferred treatment texture.

G. Oil-based Moisturizer + Ampoule Cocktails
Oil-based moisturizers are already key to a dewy complexion but, adding a few drops of any Earth Harbor ampoule before applying is an absolute dream. Depending on your target skin concerns, you can add any ampoule to either NYMPH NECTAR Superfruit Radiance Balm or CALYPSO Vitamin C Moisture Elixir for added benefits and heightened moisturization.

H. Oil-based Moisturizer + Serum Cocktails
Take a few drops of any Earth Harbor serum and mix it with NYMPH NECTAR Superfruit Radiance Balm or CALYPSO Vitamin C Moisture Elixir to create a creamy, emollient moisturizer and add an extra hydration factor.

Adventurous Skincare Cocktails

Adventurous Skincare Cocktail Breakdowns

A. Oil-based Cleanser + Toner/Essence Cocktails
Next time you use SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil or CITRINE SEA Purifying Exfoliation Potion try adding a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator. Mixing SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil with an Earth Harbor toner/essence will create an emollient water-based cleanser that helps lighten the feel of an oil-based cleanser (for those that don’t like the heaviness of oil-based cleansers). If CITRINE SEA Purifying Exfoliation Potion is too harsh for your skin try mixing it with an Earth Harbor toner/essence to help break down the salt even more and add an extra hydration factor to the oil-based formula. This creates a lush, purifying mask.

B. Water-based Cleanser + Toner/Essence Cocktails
Create a mask with AHOY LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser by mixing it with a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator. This creates a soothing mask that allows your skin to indulge in nutrient-dense botanical extracts. Massage into skin and leave on for up to 15 minutes.

Grouped Skincare Cocktails

Grouped Skincare Cocktail Breakdowns

Oil-based Cleansers
Mix a few drops of SUNSHINE DEW Antioxidant Cleansing Oil with CITRINE SEA Purifying Exfoliation Potion for a powerful cleanse that combines both enzymatic + physical exfoliation for a deep cleanse. This cocktail is perfect for nighttime cleansing to remove makeup, SPF, and oils from the day.

Water-based Cleansers
AHOY LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser is formulated to be the perfect, non-foaming, morning cleanser. When using at night to remove makeup, SPF, and oils from the day, be sure to double cleanse! Also, look out for a new water-based, low-foaming gel cleanser arriving soon!

Powder Masks
Mix ½ tsp of CACAO COVE Detoxifying Indulgence Mask and ½ tsp BLUE CRUSH Marine Perfecting Mask with water, forming a nice paste, to create a targeted purifying and gently exfoliating mask that combines the benefits of both masks. Tip: Replace water with TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Mist or CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator to give our powder masks a lush, calming, and toning effect.

Masks
As a resurfacing and exfoliating mask, apply GLOW JUICE Refining Enzyme Mask to clean skin and leave on for 3 or more minutes. For a targeted spot treatment, apply a thin layer to clean skin 1-3 times daily or as needed.

Toner + Essence
Combine a few spritzes of TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Toner and 1-2 pumps of CLOUDBURST Balancing Gel Hydrator and pat into your skin for a lightweight pH balancing, hydrating, and toning dream. This cocktail is the ultimate morning skincare prep!

Ampoules
For a customized daily cocktail, mix together two or more drops of any of Earth Harbor’s ampoules (there’s no limit on how many you can mix together!). Our ampoules are versatile as they are safely potent, so feel free to use and mix them any way that best fits your skincare ritual preferences, both day and night. Ampoules can be applied as a treatment before moisturizing or after moisturizing if you’d like to use them as a barrier-protecting facial oil.

Serums
Instead of layering serums, try mixing serums together to combine treatment steps while unlocking the benefits of each (there’s no limit of how many you can mix together!).

SPF
Regardless of the season or your skincare cocktails, ECLIPSE Sheer Mineral Sunscreen should be applied every day as the last step in your morning skincare ritual! Note that it is very important to never cocktail with SPF because it dilutes the zinc oxide.

Haircare Cocktails

If you’re looking to use BEACH WAVES Ocean Hair Texturizer while also taming frizz and adding moisture, just add 1-2 drops of SUNSTONE Hair Revive Elixir to several spritzes of BEACH WAVES.

If you want to lighten SUNSTONE Hair Revive Elixir to feel less oily while also adding texture to your hair, add a few spritzes of BEACH WAVES Ocean Hair Texturizer to a dropperful of SUNSTONE Hair Revive Elixir.
