Stinky Rose Acne Attack Facial Mask

So, my darling daughter, bless her cotton socks, decided to treat me to a face mask from a fancy-schmancy store in the mall. You know the one, it rhymes with "Hush" and it's all about fresh handmade beauty goodies that make you feel like a Kardashian. They sell these tiny black pots filled with facial magic, like a skincare Hogwarts.

The one I got was supposedly great for acne-prone skin. Now, I don't have the face of a hormonal teenager, but who am I to say no to a bit of pampering? I enjoyed it so much that I thought, "Why not try making my own?" And guess what? My DIY version is pretty darn close to the store's secret recipe. If they're KFC, consider me the Colonel.

My recipe makes about 80 grams of this face goo, which you should keep in the fridge and use within 10 days, or else it might start plotting world domination. Now, I should warn you, this mask does have a bit of a whiff, thanks to the garlic and neem oil. It's like a French chef's armpit. But hey, beauty is pain, right? And trust me, once you wash it off, your face will be as fresh and radiant as a newborn unicorn. So, ready to get stinky for beauty?
