Blend and personalize these elixirs to unlock new beauty concoctions
Good Medicine skincare invites you to harness your body’s innate healing powers. The essence of this? These creations are not just standalone products; they’re a symphony of ingredients formulated to enhance each other and collaborate to restore, fortify, and prolong your skin’s natural allure.
Each product in the Good Medicine collection has a unique role, acting independently or synergistically, enriched with the distinct properties of aromatic botanicals to boost their potency.

It’s about tuning in to your skin’s daily dialogue and crafting the perfect potion for the moment, granting you the agility to navigate life’s flux with elegance and ease.
After two decades of experience in the sanctuary of a luxury spa and the expertise gained from delivering thousands of facials, Good Medicine has revealed a selection of "Mixology" blends that consistently deliver results. Yet, they also celebrate your innate curiosity to discover unique blends. Take a cue from their male clients who swear by the fusion of Clarity with Ashes for a sumptuous shaving cream – the proof is in the blend! Dive in, and let the boundless possibilities inspire you.
GUIDANCE ON HOW TO USE ASHES
Before diving into the beauty blends that follow, a spotlight on how to harness Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains to its fullest:
When you mix Ashes into any concoction, the goal is to achieve a fluid, spreadable consistency. The secret is in the ratio—only a pinch of Ashes is needed, and a generous addition of water. Ashes are incredibly concentrated, so less is more, and mastering its use solo is advisable to prevent any waste. Begin with just a hint of Ashes in your hand, introduce water, and mix with your fingertips. Aim for a mixture that’s silky smooth, not tacky. If it feels sticky, simply incorporate more water until it's lightweight and glides effortlessly across your skin.
Even the most delicate, sun-kissed, or sensitive skin requires exfoliation. The key to maintaining glowing, toned, and supple skin lies in exfoliation done right. Explore these mixtures for a gentle yet effective cleansing ritual that discards impurities while preserving skin's moisture and equilibrium.
MIXOLOGY BRIGHTENING BLEND / Ashes + Sand
in your palm, blend a dollop of Sand Red Mineral Polish with a light dusting of Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains. Moisten the duo with a few drops of water to forge a light, fluffy, and creamy cleansing fusion. This blend is primed to gently lift away dead skin cells without inducing redness or discomfort.
With your fingertips, apply this blend in gentle, sweeping circles across your face and neck. For an enhanced effect, you can pause and let the blend sit on the skin briefly, allowing the active ingredients to do their magic before we wipe away the mixture with a soft, warm cloth.
MIXOLOGY SUNSHINE BLEND / Ashes + Honey Bee
For those combating sun damage, acne, dryness, or irritation, this go-to concoction is a blend of Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains with Honey Bee Revelation Mask, enhanced by a splash of water. This mixture is a powerhouse of hydration, healing, and clarifying properties—the vitamin C from Ashes synergizes with the natural sugars in the honey, serving as a gentle exfoliant. Post-application, your skin will feel incredibly smooth and rejuvenated.
To create this blend, combine the ingredients in your hand, adding water to give it a more fluid consistency. Gently apply the blend over your face and neck with your fingertips in soft, circular motions. Allow the mixture to sit on your skin for a couple of minutes to maximize its soothing and softening effects. Then, cleanse thoroughly with a warm, damp washcloth.
MIXOLOGY REVELATION BLEND / Ashes + Honey Dew
When the skin begins to appear lackluster or splotchy, whether due to seasonal changes or hormonal shifts, reach for a MIXOLOGY solution: the Honey Dew Youth Serum mixed with Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains. The citrus elements in Honey Dew unite with the bubbly texture of Ashes, creating a dynamic alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) cleansing mixture that restores clarity and resilience to your complexion. This blend is particularly adept at fading age spots and reducing the appearance of scars.
Dispense a quarter-sized amount of Honey Dew into your palm. Lightly dust it with Ashes and blend with your fingertips. Add just enough water to ensure the blend is smooth and spreadable. Apply this to your face and neck with a gentle, pressing motion, which not only helps the skin absorb the blend but also promotes plumpness and stimulates collagen production. After letting the blend penetrate for a few moments, wash it off with a warm, moist washcloth.
CUSTOMIZED DEEP HYDRATION STRATEGIES
Our skin’s thirst for hydration varies; it’s influenced by the time of day, daily activities, and even the seasons. Women, in particular, may notice their skin’s needs shift suddenly, in tune with their body’s natural rhythms. Imagine having the flexibility to tailor your skincare to these ever-changing demands. That's the kind of versatility we celebrate!
MIXOLOGY MOONSHINE BLEND / Clarity + Rain
For those times when our skin feels as dry as a desert, we turn to Rain Replenishing Oil Wash, adding just a drop to our Clarity Awakening Face Cream. Rain's unique blend of non-comedogenic oils dives deep into the skin, imparting much-needed nourishment and healing. It’s our secret for an overnight transformation. Apply this blend at night after cleansing for cellular rejuvenation, a lifted appearance, and to wake up to deeply hydrated skin. Clarity, on the other hand, brings a soothing touch, promoting a restful state and renewal for all skin types, balancing oily complexions by regulating oil production for a serene, harmonious feel.
MIXOLOGY SUNLIGHT BLEND / Honey Dew + Rain
For a featherlight moisturizer that doubles as a shield against environmental stress, blend Honey Dew Youth Serum with a few drops of Rain Replenishing Oil Wash. This concoction is ideal for those living by the sea or anyone seeking a barely-there moisturizer for hot summer days.
MASTERING MAKEUP REMOVAL
MIXOLOGY MOVEMENT BLEND / Clarity + Ashes
When faced with makeup that sticks like glue, refusing to budge from your skin, try our mixologist’s solution: combine Clarity Awakening Face Cream with Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains. Clarity’s hydrating oils are adept at dissolving even the most steadfast makeup and mascara, leaving your skin pristine and free from pore-clogging leftovers.
