The first time I used this mask I was terrified when it started BURNING as soon as I put it on. But the next morning? BABEE. The results for this masque speak for themselves! I use this whenever I notice texture patches on my skin and it clears them up overnight.
Note: I would NEVER use this product during the day if I'm planning on going out in the sun (sunscreen or not), and while I have a few different nighttime moisturizers, I only ever follow this mask with the Épanouie Night cream (and now the facial oil) to settle my skin and avoid any irritation (never had any, but I try to be careful). My skin has texture flare-ups sometimes, but this masque does its job EVERY time. Trade it out with a mechanical exfoliator and texture is nonexistent. Now just working on my hyperpigmentation.
This masque reallllllly does the damn thing when it comes to the texture of the skin. It's a thin masque, tingles upon application but that goes away.
First thing you should notice about any products on this website is the ingredients, which are all fantastic. First of all, pumpkin is amazing for skin, and this being a chemical exfoliant instead of physical does wonders for your face. I keep mine in the fridge to add a nice cooling sensation to combat the warm tingling feeling I get when applying it, but it's not an overwhelming burning at all. Another thing to note is I've tried several other products from this brand and in case you're wondering, it's not just for darker skin! Lol thought I'd put that out there in case you're curious. my dark spots are fading, cystic acne I had is decreasing, my skin is GLOWING girl I am in love.
I have really sensitive skin, so I get a little worried when I try different products. The first time I used it (the sample size) it did have a stinging sensation to it, but that was expected because it contains acids. My skin is glowinggg now I’m so happy. My skin is still recovering from last year, but using this product at night will have your skin on hit the next morning! If this product is too strong for you, try the Berry Scrub because it works just as well too (less potent). These products are QUALITY for black skin. I’ve been telling my whole family about them. Get some sample sizes to figure out what works for your skin!
