How to Throw a Goddess Retreat - DIY Facial Bar

May 17, 2018

DIY Facial Skincare Bar

Hilary here! I am very passionate about taking care of my skin and probably do a face mask about three times a week, if not more. I usually make them from ingredients that anyone can pick up in a grocery store because I like to know exactly what I am putting on my face.

Every year for the Goddess Retreat, we are asked to bring something to contribute to the weekend, and I thought how fun it would be if I could share my love of making clean face masks! Pampering yourself and nourishing your skin to give it a heavenly glow just seemed like a MUST for a goddess weekend.

All ingredients included in the bar are easy to find at your local grocery store.
