This product is a life saver! when I have a bad reaction to skin products, my skin flares up and then it get very, very dry, to the point that is flakes everywhere! After using this mask, all of my flakes and extreme dryness are gone. The rest of the products in my skin care regime go on like silk and my skin is left glowing for days!
I wish it was a little cheaper though. $41CAD is pretty steep and the container only has enough product for maybe 10 applications. I'll only be repurchasing if I can find it cheaper in a discount store or if I get enough store points/gift cards to pick it up.
I picked up this little baby at Marshall's a few weeks ago and I'm glad I did! I had never heard of this before, but I love peel off masks and Elizabeth Arden products are generally really nice so I figured it was a bargain at only $14.99! It comes in a really pretty screw on jar that has a really nice weight and feel to it. It also come with a cute little brush to apply the product to your face and a little spot on top of the lid to snap it in place so you don't lose it! (Which I really appreciated btw) the product itself is like a clear, reddish-pink maple syrup/honey consistency. It's made up of Cabernet grape seed extract and alpha & beta hydroxy acids to exfoliate, shrink pores and diminish fine lines/wrinkles. I actually like the brush to apply the mask! I find that it works best if I dip the entire brush into the product and twist 90 degrees or so, that there is a good amount of product to easily spread around the face. If you have too little on the brush, it doesn't spread around well at all, and it seems like the brush is useless. Don't glob too much on either! It's wasteful, and it takes too long to dry. It smells kinda like wine, which I really like. It does sting a bit when first applied (for me at least), but that goes away in a few minutes. It's easy to peel off also. If you do it right, you can get the whole thing in one solid pull. It really makes my skin feel supple and smooth as a baby's bottom afterwards and I feel like it does shrink my pores and help diminish lines. My only gripe is that I feel like there isn't very much product in the jar.. I've probably only done 4 or 5 treatments and its really low. Supposedly this usually costs around $50 so I think that's pretty expensive for only a handful of uses. I only paid like $15, so I really can't complain though! I probably wouldn't spend $50 on this, but if I saw this on sale somewhere again, I would definitely repurchase! In conclusion, I really do like this product! Recommended!
Definitely one of my must have, favourite products. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and as it goes on quite cool it is very refreshing. Only negative is the price but you can get it quite a lot more cheaply through discount cosmetic sites. The Australian version comes with a little rubber spatula which makes applying the mask much easier than the brush that comes with the overseas version. You can also use disposable spatulas so you don't double dip.
Got this from Winner where it was discounted for under $20. The brush, I agree with the last reviewer, is useless. easier just to use my own fingers. once applied, my face felt so cooling, the area where close to eyes almost hurt (like the feeling when you use those cooling eye drops). spicy smell. skin feels clean after peeling off the mask. I can see little black head (or some sort of dirty things from my face) on the peeled off mask. I will not buy it again because of the retail price, but if I found it is on sale again for cheaper price, I might buy it.
This product just fails on every level.
The brush is useless. The product delivers nothing.
What did it reveal?
That skincare companies still don't bat an eye at selling empty promises that don't deliver .....
Please. Give me a break. Worst beauty purchase of 2012, hands down.
This is a great mask, that with long term use yeilds great results!! it goes on clear and dries, then you peel off the mask, it gets shiny so u can see it. immediate results should not be expected, but with regular use, really makes a great difference with my skin, elasticity, luminosity, and general appearance! a bit spendy normally, but i got it a discount type store for like 15 and that made it much more worth it. I had it once before when i worked in a dept store, and had great discounts on makeup, then repurchased about a year ago! almost gone again lol
I loved this product its really easy to use you apply the peel with the brush you let it dry and you peel it off when its dry.I noticed that my fine lines where gone and my skin felt tighter.Since i started using the peel my skin is much softer :D
I love this product! I used to work at Herberger's and funny story, I had a white out pen burst ALL OVER MY FACE!!! literally! splash marks covering my face and would not come off!! my boss pittied me and sent me to the makeup counters where the clinique girl, the lauder girl, and the arden girl went to work trying to get it off!! nothing worked until they put this on!!! I fell in love with it, and used my store credit to get it! it was awesome! peeled the white out right off my skin, which was irritated, and this calmed it down, and I never broke out or anything! I bought it again when I saw it at TJ maxx, and thank god! I missed my face peel miracle worker! originally paid like over 50$ for it, this time was only 14.99$!!!! steal
Skin felt fresher and softer after use. Not too much improvement in actual look of skin. Can be really messy to use which put me off at times. Would use again as an easy way to freshen up my skin if the price was right.
Found this for $15 at TJ Maxx. I believe it was around 45 or 50 normally. (A bit higher than what I would normally pay for something like this.) The instructions say to use 1 to 2 times a week but I feel it is gentle enough to where you could do it a few more times a week if you wanted. It's easy to apply with the fan brush that comes with the product. Apply fairly thick so it is easier to peel off in bigger pieces or you'll be stuck peeling off little pieces everywhere! Smells nice (like a wine!) I had tiny lines around my mouth and they were GONE after 1 treatment. AMAZING. My skin feels and looks noticeably better. I will continue to buy this for as long as they continue to make it!
