Pleasant smelling masque that tingles immediately upon application. Goes on smoothly and evenly with the Épanouie application brush. The tingling goes away after a few minutes. Smells great and washes off easy.
I'm starting to see results in my third week of usage. My complexion is more even and my cheek area where I have problems with large pores is starting to appear more refined.
Would warn against using more than once in the first week. I used it one day, skipped a day, then used it again and I think it was too much for my skin, although I don't consider my skin to be sensitive. It was red for about a week and then I resumed usage once the irritation was gone. I'm using it twice a week right now, may work my way up to three times once my skin acclimates more to the masque. I NEVER leave the house without sunscreen on my face. You will burn yourself if you don't use sunscreen in conjunction with this product. I wear a mask and shades to protect myself from the sun on days when I use strong exfoliants.
I'm new to chemical exfoliation and acids so I wasn't sure what to expect when I tried this out. The consistency is very liquid-y and a little goes a long way! It tingles for only about 5-10 seconds and then goes away for the 15-20 minutes I keep it on. If you use it correctly, the results are amazing. My face is brighter, smoother, and any imperfections such as acne scars are starting to fade. 1-2 times per week is about right for my skin and I moisturize after with the day cream.
The only con I had was that it leaked during shipping a tiny bit but it was still full when I opened it.
Overall, I plan on purchasing this again. It's a must have in my skincare routine.
This mask is so lovely! I felt like a walking pie with it on my face. It tingles upon application and afterwards your face feels so soft and supple. Cannot wait to see my results after longterm use.
Reupped, because I love this masque so much! My skin is pretty okay but it was looking a bit dull and this works wonders. My face always looks radiant after using. Not sure if it helped with my texture as well (or if that was just me being consistent with a routine) but either way, for dullness? It is THAT GIRL.
