I'd heard good things about this mask from one of the guest features on WellnessWA, and I have a bit of a Thing for masks so I thought I'd give it a shot. I managed to have it evade me for about a month (Sukin restocks really sporadically, who would have thought?) which made my determination to find one even greater. When I did chance upon one it was during a sale, which I figure is the cosmetic gods' way of indicating divine favor.
It comes in a flat circular pot with an interior sealing lid (what are they called? They're essentially there to keep the product from squishing into the product lid), and smells rather strongly of earth and herbs and clay and a whole lot of undefinable Outdoors smells. It's also the color of wet terracotta, so when I loaded it onto my normally pale skin I looked like an especially haggard Snooki. It was a tiny bit stingy/tingly around my nose, but nothing for me to get overly excited about. I wandered off to amuse myself for 15 minutes while the mask did its thing.
The label advises removing with warm water or a cloth. I would amend that to reflect that a cloth is necessary and not optional. I had a bugger of a time getting this completely off without a washcloth (I don't have them around much), and even when I did, I had an odd, ruddy color for a little while which shifted after repeatedly wiping my face with Dermaveen.
But golly, my face felt nice. Kind of plump and hydrated. I suspected it'd be over-moisturizing since it says it's for all skin types (I never believe that), and it'd maybe be a bit light-going for very dry ladies, but for me it was a very pleasant surprise. And also a relief, since by this stage I was starting to resent the amount of work this mask was causing me.
It's a cheapie, even when not on sale, so with that in mind I would tentatively recommend it. just have a washcloth on hand, Lordy.
