The Compassionate Chick’s Guide to DIY Beauty (Robert Rose, 2016) by Sunny Subramanian and Chrystle Fiedle, contains only vegan cruelty-free, non-toxic, and gluten-free beauty recipes on a budget. Sunny was the first vegan beauty blogger, she runs the Vegan Beauty Review website, where she writes about the latest and greatest cruelty-free products in the fashion and beauty scene. Make these recipes in your own kitchen and take complete control over what goes on your skin.

This recipe is made with such yummy ingredients, like cocoa powder and luscious ripe cherries, that you’ll need serious willpower not to bake up a vegan cake to match. Oh, what the heck, why not make both? As Oscar Wilde wrote, “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.”

Combine in a blender.

Ingredients

• 3 large ripe cherries, pitted
• 1 tbsp kaolin clay (15 mL)
• 1 tbsp almond milk (15 mL)
• 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (10 mL)



Instructions

1. In blender, purée cherries, clay, almond milk and cocoa powder until smooth. Spoon into a small bowl.

2. Using fingers, spread mask all over damp cleansed facial skin. Let stand on skin for 10 minutes.
