The Aerial Queen’s Beautifying Rose Gold + Honey Mask
Honey infused with consecrated Venus’ Aerial Delight beautifying herbal blend + emeralds before being finely strained. Whipped with bean, 22kt rose gold, frankincense, and geranium.
Clean and exfoliate the skin, perhaps with some Vanilla Bean Pearl Polish, and dry completely. Apply a quarter sized squeeze to dry fingers and begin spreading gently across the skin, which will become easier to spread as it warms.
Once a thin layer covers the entire face (and optionally, neck + décolleté), begin patting gently and quickly with the fingers until the mask thickens and becomes tacky — bringing blood flow, and resulting in additional softness/ exfoliation. Leave on for 10-20 minutes.
Rinse with warm water. Tone and proceed with skin care as usual.
Clarifies, softens, makes more beautiful 🌸
Offered in a 1 oz silicone squeezy for $35

The epitome of a beauty ritual - luxe and smells delicious.
I found the texture of the mask difficult to work with. It smelled lovely, though, and I think it would be a better weekly treat for less sensitive skin types.
The first time I put this mask on, it instantly felt soothing. The sweetness of the honey feels like it slides through the skin. The stickiness is unusual, but adds to the tactile experience. Simply using this mask feels like inviting Venus to bless me with beauty.
It took me a few tries to learn how to work with this mask and now that I have it figured out, I'm a fan! The massage technique I've landed on is more vigorous for the skin than I initially thought to do - very stimulating and definitely brings blood to the surface. I love the smell of the mask, the way my skin looks and feels afterwards, and the decadent experiencing of coating myself in honey. It's all very sticky! But also a lovely and unique beauty ritual.
To begin, the dark honey-and-resin fragrance of this mask is exquisite, second only to (but nothing like) the Jasmine and Vanilla Bean body butter. It becomes easier to spread as it warms to your fingers, and is the perfect texture for a gentle skin massage. I like to apply it during a bath so that I can lounge in the water after rinsing it off. I think I look flushed, regal and grave after using it, like the Venus of Arles in profile, and my cheeks are soft as velvet for hours afterward.
I have used it primarily for self-care, but I did take it on a recent business trip when I had to interact with the sales division of my company. One sales rep, a guy in his early 20s, told me unprompted that I had "amazing skin" (not the typical compliment paid by a young straight dude). Later that day another coworker told our new CEO that I was the "heart and soul" of our department - a statement that I attribute directly to the combo of Regulus III and Eirene (oil plus honey mask) I was wearing.
One final note: I have *extremely* sensitive facial skin, and the mask gives me no problems if applied weekly. Using it twice in a week caused mild irritation (either from the ingredients or the energy overload) that resolved within a day. The mask is a voluptuous experience, and I want to always have some version of it on hand for putting on my goddess face.
So, this is not necessarily easy to spread for me (I find that dotting and patting worked best), however this is a great humectant mask, your skin glows after you wash it off, and maybe low-key a glamour spell. Your face looks beautiful, and you feel great. I wouldn't use it every day, but every few days, and definitely on special days when you have to put your best face forward both figuratively and literally. (This won't solve underlying skin issues, but I believe that it will place you in a space where you're not focusing on your faults, which may seem very obvious to us personally, but come to find out, no stranger is focused on it at all). In case the review feels wishy-washy, I absolutely love the mask and the glow it gives, and would purchase again.
