The Best Homemade Face Masks

Cleopatras Secret Face Masks

Did you know although many people choose the use of a weekly or bi-weekly treatment with a cleansing, hydrating and detoxifying face mask, they may not be getting as much out of the experience as they could? Many of these masks available are not that effective due to the lack of the proper ingredients. And, most of the anti-aging skin care masks won’t do the trick, because of inferior ingredients as well.

The major problem with these and other cosmetics products is that they are primarily developed using synthetics when they should be made up of natural compounds. Natural compounds inject your skin with the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids that help towards ensuring that your skin is as healthy as it can possibly be. Synthetics simply can’t provide any of this.

Many products being sold, are simply filled with chemical preservatives and antibacterial compounds. You should avoid allowing chemicals to come into contact with the skin in any way, so stay away from most of the products that the major cosmetics companies are offering.

What you need to be using on your skin are formulas that contain nothing except all natural ingredients, but these natural products can sometimes be difficult for you to find. The problem with finding these products often lead people to try homemade recipes for masks, and these are admittedly better for your skin than most of the formulas I described. They still don’t offer you everything that you need, however.

A homemade face mask calls for putting various mixtures of fruits or vegetables, with yoghurt and other compounds often mixed in. These ingredients are great for providing the antioxidants and essential nutrients that your skin needs, but they are generally missing key ingredients needed for cleansing the skin. They also offer almost nothing to help your skin look younger.

The Switch

Two weeks ago, I switched to Cleopatra’s face masks. I am a Kiehl’s user for a long time but the effect was not that satisfying.  I was not that hesitant to try Cleopatra’s products because it is one hundred percent all natural and one hundred percent vegan.

Why Choose All Natural Skin Care  Products?

All Natural skin care products help the skin in maintaining a fragile balance by protecting it against harmful ultra-violet rays, pollution, toxins, bacteria, extreme temperatures, stress and natural aging. It fights against these factors by providing the skin with the vitamins, minerals, and proteins it needs to sustain a healthy, young and natural appearance. Used in massage therapy, the natural ingredients provide a sensory delight with fragrances inspired by aromatherapy and unique innovative textures that amplify the experience.
The result is a deep restoration and balance of the mind and body that provides a boost of vitality for you and your skin.

My Favorites!

1. European Thermal Mud (Moor Mud)

Moor Mud is extracted from the moorlands of Europe (Central). It is an organic black paste peat substance formed by the decomposition of a variety of plants over a very long period of time. It has a high concentration of minerals, amino acids, vitamins and plant hormones. European Thermal Mud ( Moor Mud) is useful for the treatment and prevention of blemishes and inflammation of the skin.

The Instant Effect

Cleopatra's Secret

As you can see,  I am not a good looking guy haha! This photo was taken 2 weeks ago. It was my first time using the product and I was amazed by the instant effect. Para akong nagpa derma!

Moor Mud is now part of my daily skin care regimen.  I love the minty feeling. It is just like putting a mask with an ice pack in one.

2. Deep Pore Detox

Deep Pore Detox is also my favourite. My skin issue is enlarged pores. That’s why I am more into pore minimizing products. This all-natural mask unclogs pores by gently removing dirt and leaving your skin free from free radicals for a refreshed and healthier complexion.  Also perfect for blackheads problem.

I am using Deep Pore Detox every day during nighttime. Living in a city makes my skin more exposed to dust and pollution. Therefore, I have to make sure that my pores are unclogged before I go to sleep.


  • The best thing that you can do is alternate between using a cleansing and hydrating face mask that contains these ingredients.  By switching between the two types of masks, you guarantee getting an extreme dose of hydration in your skin, and the most effective deep cleansing possible. In other words, you get the best of both worlds.
  • If there is no hydrating face mask available, you can use milk(instead of water) to dissolve the powder mask, Milk is a good source of moisturizing ingredients.
  • You may also use an apple cider vinegar to dissolve the mixture. Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxy acids that remove dead skin.
  • A lemon juice (fresh) is also an option. Lemons are anti-bacterial. They can help treat your acne.  Just mix the juice with your favorite face mask.

Currently, I am also using their Brightening Rose and Tomato Serum and will be posting a review soon.

Pros and Cons


  • It is 100% all natural, 100% vegan, and handmade.
  • The masks have instant effects.
  • Price is reasonable compared to other all natural face mask.
  • Since it is 100% natural, you can use it every day.
  • Of course, FDA (Food & Drugs Administration)  approved. Do not use skin care products that are not approved by the FDA.


  • As of now, Cleopatra’s Secret does not have a physical store. They sell their products thru Bazaars and via Instagram.
  • The packaging of some products needs some improvement, like the labels and also,  they have to add the basic ingredients for everyone to be aware of what are the components of the products they are using.  But as saying goes; “Do not judge the book by its cover”.  Cleopatra’s Secret Facemasks are really amazing!
