I love this mask the smell is nice and crisp it has a nice cooling effect I leave it on for about an hour. I use this two- four times a week in the winter and one-two times a week in the summer I buy it during sephoras vib sale due to it being 88 dollars for 100ml I do stock up during that time. I would not say this mask is a must have but it is something that is really nice. One of the biggest mistakes people make with this mask is putting to much on at one time you need a very thin layer if you use to much it can burn a little but it leaves the skin glowing smooth and feeling nice.
I'm glad that I got a sample of this before buying. I'm not sure if the jar they took the sample from was old or not, but the mask balled up on application. What others have called a "cooling" sensation felt more like burning to me. After 30 minutes, it was all flaked up on my skin, so I could never use this on a long flight or while walking around my neighborhood. My skin was soft when I washed it off, but not very moisturized. I am better off just applying the Fresh Seaberry Oil instead of this mask.
Wow! This is an expensive mask but makes your skin feel so good and gives a nice glow that last for a few days, it is worth it. I have combination/oily skin and this is perfect to use twice a week. Also love to use on my hands! I have not experienced the "tingle" as others have reported and I even leave it on longer than the 10 minutes suggested. One negative comment on ordering through their website: they will not inform you if one of your items is not available. You will find out when you get your shipment. Not very good customer service especially when you are ordering for gifts.
WOW -- did this burn my skin, immediately after putting it on. I searched the label for menthol, mint, anything to explain the "cold burn". Hours later my face is still red -- albeit soft. Too bad, I liked the smell and consistency. UPDATE: After reading reviews, dummy me, I tried using this again. BIG mistake. My skin literally burns with this on it.
I love this mask!
Pros- leaves my skin feeling soft, super hydrating, refreshed! I love it for winter months when my skin gets super itchy and flakey.
Cons- The cool feeling can be a little iintense on super dry skin, can feel irritating immediately after use, moisturize right away to avoid feeling
This is the best mask I have ever used. I tried so many different brands include: sisley, shiseido, clarins, Darphin etc...But nothing can compare to this. I put it on my face and leave it overnight. The next day my skin is so smooth and brightener. I only wish it could be cheaper. It is not easy to find Fresh on sale. When it is, this mask is always out of stock.
This is an extremely effective mask for hydrating and refreshing the skin however the very steep price tag means that I have only used it when I can get my hands on samples from Sephora. It has a strong cooling sensation on the skin which is very soothing and I left it on for longer than the directed 5-8 minutes. After I rinsed it my skin felt smooth and refreshed and I applied my toner, moisturizer and eye cream for a great mini-facial.
The reason I would not buy this "again" is because I just can't justify the $108 CAD price tag.
I love this mask! It's cool and freshing to the touch, and has a wonderful smell. I've generally been blessed with decent skin, so I'm not sure how much it's helped, but I feel refreshed after using it! The consistency of it doesn't bother me too much - I just use less and try to spread a thinner layer across my face. My main gripe is the steep price - wouldn't recommend purchasing it unless there was a sale going on.
This is the BEST mask I've ever had! The first few times you use it your face will look amaaazing. But after that it won't make your face look awesome but it still makes it look really good. I use it as directed and it makes my face look dewey and brighter and it will fade redness a bit, just overall doing good for your skin. I am acne prone and oily and I haven't broken out because of it or seen any bad side effects. I apply it when I have an important day ahead of me and I want to look my best.
Overall, this is a lovely moisturising mask, but the steep price tag is a serious deterrent. I only ever purchase this mask when there's a VIB/Beauty Insider sale/discount at Sephora and even then, it really hurts the wallet.
I like how it applies all mousse-like and airy. I apply it differently than the packaged instructions in that I leave it on for much longer, sometimes an hour or so. I like the cool, refreshing feeling it imparts and also the scent (I smell sweet cucumber). I like how it leaves my skin feeling softer, smoother, and more moisturised. However, the feeling only lasts so long.
I prefer this mask for its moisturising effects to other "moisturising" masks like those gel-to-water textured masks as I feel I get more out of it.
