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.
Mask Powder: 1.7oz / 50 grams
Activator: 2.6oz / 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.
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.

I like the simplicity of my regime. Is the nighttime repair serum meant to be used with the crystal radiance hydrating elixer?
Hello! Yes, the Nighttime Repair Serum is used together with the Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir. After cleansing your face at night, apply about 4 pumps of the Nighttime Repair Serum, then spray your face with your Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir.
So this would be an oil free serum as it is for night
Yes, that's correct! There are no oils in this product.
