Stinky Rose Acne Attack Facial Mask

My lovely daughter bought me a freshly crafted face mask from a popular store in the mall.  This particular store sells a variety of fresh handmade beauty and skincare products and they sell small black plastic pots of freshly prepared facial masks.  The one I received contained ingredients that are suggested to be beneficial and soothing to acne-prone skin.  I did enjoy using it and thought I would try to recreate my own homespun  version.  I feel my version comes pretty darn close to the store's recipe.  My recipe makes about 80 grams of product which needs to be kept in the fridge and used within 10 days.  This mask does stink just a bit due to the garlic and the neem oil, however your face is going to feel fresh and look radiant afterwards.

Place all ingredients in a small food processor and process until smooth and creamy.  Apply an even and generous layer over your face, avoiding your eyes.  Leave on for up to 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
