As part of the Ombra Del Sole Series, the Repair Mask is developed to correct and rejuvenate stressed skin from the likes of the sun, pollution, chemical cosmetics, and prescription drugs. Benedetta’s Repair Mask is the first line of defense to exfoliate dead cells allowing for new healthy cells to emerge and stimulate our own natural immunity, for creating stronger healthier skin.
Our Repair Mask aids the skin’s correction of atmospheric damage as it soothes and nourishes. The synergy of 100% Botanical ingredients, each certified organic, is not just clean but profoundly effective in removing upper layers of dead skin cells as it enhances the renewal of collagen and elastin through deeper level stimulation.
Due to the exfoliating properties of this mask, we do reccomend using the Hydrating Elixir Neroli right after to help soothe and hydrate the skin.

Mask Powder: 1.7oz | 50g
Activator: 2.7oz | 80ml
Caution: Not intended for those with extreme sensitivities.
Mix approximately 1 scoop Repair Mask Activator to 1-1.5 scoops Repair Mask. After cleansing with Rosemary & Geranium Crème Cleanser, apply to face, neck and chest. Let dry for 20-40 minutes. Splash face with cool water to rehydrate before removing. Use rolling technique to remove for extra exfoliation. Prior to applying Crystal Radiance of choice, splash face with cool water once more. For dry, sensitive skin, apply a thin layer of Rosemary & Geranium or Anti-Inflammatory Cleanser may be applied before Mask.
Using our Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir Neroli after the Repair Mask is the most hydrating and soothing for your skin after this treatment.
The Repair Mask was created out of a need for extra exfoliation and correction before and after the skin becomes damaged. Initially I created a Pomegranate Exfoliant for Estheticians to use in treatments. This preparation was offered to their clients in need of a secondary procedure that had the ability to slough off more dead cells and have immediate results.
When I decided to come out with the Ombra Del Sole Series, it seemed appropriate to include this process and blend it with two kinds of Pomegranate powders and many more new materials, to enhance and include extra nutrients.
As a preventative and corrective preparation this formula has a more aggressive approach to exfoliation using ingredients [below] that breakdown dry skin cells and aid cellular renewal turnover rate; something that slows down with aging and increased damage. The Repair Mask & Activator penetrates deeper into layers of the dermis and once dried can stimulate collagen by shocking the cells into new production.
The powders in this mask have a reputation for treating sun damaged skin and addressing issues like age spots, acne scars, discoloration and elasticity- all associated with aging and atmospheric assault. They include:
The Repair Mask Activator is filled with waters and extracts rich in nutrients like linolenic acid and Vitamin C, both reputed for collagen synthesis. Once the Repair Mask Powder is blended into a homogenous cream and applied to the skin, it’s best to wait at least 20-30 minutes before rolling it off. Leaving it on longer will allow it to stimulate deeper into the epidermis, often causing a mild pulsating feeling. It’s recommended to start with less time for those with sensitivities.
The true activation takes place once the product is removed. Wet hands to make sure you have “slightly” rehydrated, still leaving the mask somewhat dry. Using the OMR -Open Mouth Resistant Technique, roll with pads of fingers in a circular fashion until all the mask is off. Use a very wet washcloth or splash with cold water the remaining mask off until your face is clear.
Should you do this procedure at night we recommend using the Ombra Del Sole Nighttime Repair Serum, followed by Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir, in particular Neroli if your skin is red or sensitive after treatment.

How about layering? What if I spray hydrating elixir first, then use moisturizer and eye cream, then defense on top?
Hello! Layering is great! You can follow up the five step regimen with our Defense & Repair Crème. You can also use the Defense & Repair Crème instead of your moisturizer if you find that you don't need both.
I have a lot of allergies. Can you tell me if this product has Grape seed oil, metthol or Xanthan Gum. I notice lots of your stuff has xanthan gum and grape seed oil but I don't see it on this product. I would like to buy it if it doesn't Do you think I can get an answer before the sale is over?
Hello! We do not have any of those ingredients in this product or any of our other products. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Does this really protect from uva and uvb? Does it take the place of sunscreen?
Hello! Antioxidants are known for their ability to help filter UVA and UVB rays. This product is loaded with antioxdiants and will help to protect your skin from those rays. It does NOT have an SPF, so it is not take the place of a sunscreen when you are out in the sun for long periods of time. We recommend using the Defense & Repair Crème under your SPF sunscreen to help protect your skin from the harmful effects of sunscreens.
I love your products. I use this moisturizer and instead of purchasing oil from you folks... I create my own blend of oil and I also incorporate essential oils that help me achieve results I want. Years ago, I completed a program to become a certified massage therapist and I worked for 6 years as the Director of Purchasing with two different Nutraceutical companies... I have a varied background in healthcare... Be well. Thanks for creating such lovely products.
The best out there!!
I started using the Defense & Repair creme upon the suggestion of my naturopathic doctor. At first I wasn't sure I would tolerate it due to very sensitive and eczema-prone skin. I started slowly, applying only to my forehead for a few days and then started using it all over my face. After several weeks of getting used to the creme, I started to use the Defense & Repair Oil from the same line. It felt SO nourishing, yet lightweight, not sticky at all. My skin just soaked it right up. Most recently I also added in the Elixir as a first step in this trio.
I live in Minnesota, but first bought the creme when I came across your shop in San Francisco. I have been mail ordering it because it is a unique product with all natural ingredients. Many cremes make my face break out, but this one feels great, is nourishing and supposedly works to fight sun damage. I like to spend time in the outdoors, so this is perfect for me. Thanks!
I decided to try the Ombra Creme since I was traveling to Joshua Tree. I put this on everyday I was there and loved knowing that my skin was protected and nourished. I got a little red but that quickly turned into a tan. Can’t wait to put this creme on again!
