Wine Lees Face Mask

These 100% Red Wine Lees Face Mask will leave your face feeling softer than ever. This product is composed of antioxidants and organic acids that actively work towards your skins health and protection.

Product Description:

One travel packet can make up to two masks! 

Our products are made from 100% natural red wine lees and all sourced by hand!

Wine lees are great for all skin types! If you have more sensitive skin, we recommend patch testing before applying a full face mask. Lees can be drying for some skin types, so be sure to have your favorite moisturizer around to finish off your routine.

Please keep in mind that this is a natural product and variation in appearance between batches is nature's way! 

Never heard of wine lees? Don't worry, you're not alone. To put it simply, lees is made up of all the remaining antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, etc, that settle to the bottom of the barrel at the end of the winemaking process

Tell me more!

1. It all starts with grapes. We source our Lees from wineries using sustainably grown fruit! So everything you use comes from eco-minded businesses.

2. Fermentation works its magic in tanks and casks in our winemakers' cellars. The then wine is moved down to barrel to undergo the aging process. It is here that the settling of lees takes place.

3. Once the fermentation and aging is complete, the wine is "racked" or siphoned off of the lees that have settled to the bottom. This wine is bottled and makes its way to your dinner parties. 

4. After being separated from their more popular counterpart (the wine we all know and love), The Lees Cellar rescues the lees.


5. The lees get their limelight after the wine steals the show at the dinner party while you unwind with a rejuvenating face mask.

How to use:

Pour your single use mask into a bowl and add a rough 1:1 ratio. We recommend using warm to room temperature water.  Mix gernerously and apply to your face. Let sit for 5 minutes or until your face feels tight. Remove mask with a warm wash cloth. 

For a thinner mask application, use less product and more water. We recommend a thinner application as this allows the mask to breathe and actively benefit your skin

Lees does not stain like wine does, however, it is best if used and removed with like or darker colors.

Topical use only, remove if irritation occurs.
