I love this mask,soo soothing and moisturizing,I have dry skin and I fell asleep the other night with mask on,when I woke up,my face was smooth,nothing left to tissue off.
I like it very much and yes deffinitely would buy again./it feel so luxury like thick whipped cream when you put it on.I dont have any redness so I cannot comment on this but I would recomend this mask to everybody with irritated skin.
I bought this mask in a pinch while on vacation and suffering serious flakies on my chin from all the air travel and climate adjustment. Instantly fell in love. It's a thick creamy mask that absorbs into my skin -- I barely had any to tissue off. It's actually more like a deep moisture treatment for the face than a traditional mask you remove. Would totally buy again.
$22 for a 1.69 ounce tube at Drugstore.com (and slightly less abroad, it seems).
Didn t do much for my skin. After using it, the skin felt a bit smoother, but nothing good happened about the redness. It feels quite oily, heavy and I don t think you can remove it entirely just with Avene water.and, no way u can leave it over the night, it s just too heavy for that! anyways, I think that this mask is really a thick, rich moisturizer , and not really a mask.In my opinion, it doesn t measure up to the price!
Simply LOVE this mask...better than any other moisturizing mask.
I received this product for free so have no idea of the cost. It is not something I would buy normally, even if I could find it to buy since we live so rurally. It has a very light scent. Hard to describe. It did not bother me. It is a milky texture on the thick side. I have used it in the evenings to help my dry skin. Put it on, 10 minutes later wipe off excess. In the morning my face feels very soft. It is summer now and the softness is almost a little oily. I am going to save this for winter when my poor skin gets so dry. Then I think it will be well appreciated.
This is a milky moisterising mask. It has a light scent. I use it every 3 days or so at night. I apply it after my moisturiser and let it sit for 15 mins or so and then tissue off the excess. I then spray my face with Avene thermal water - it helps get rid of the stickness and go to bed. I don't wash it off with a cleanser the next day, just splash a little water on when I am in the shower. This is really soothing and cooling. It has helped my skin alot when it has been really red, angry and burnt by a bad reaction to other stuff. It also is quite hydrating and is helping with some of my dryness problems - crepeyness and flakiness etc. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and calm. My skin loves this stuff. Even though I am prone to breakouts it does not seem to have made it worse. In fact it seems to calm any spots down, as well as help heal the ones that I have been naughty and picked at. This is definetly not suitable to wear under makeup unless you rinsed it off. It does leave a residue, but that is why I use it at night. Doesn't really help with fine lines but hey, how much can one product do?
Edit 01-Aug-09: So I had to stop using this.... it seemed to calm my skin down at first but as I used it for longer it ended up aggravating my sensitive skin so I was back to day 1. I think it was the light fragrance. Grrr. The search continues. I think this would be a good product though for less sensitive skin. Downgraded from 5 lippies to 2.
Lovely scent and easy to use mask. I normally put it overnight when i have super sensitive itchy face. it feels better the next day :)
A very nice smoothing mask, my winter skin has been drying out and using this 1 - 2 times a week has been helping, slather it on, leave it for 10 - 15 minutes, then rinse off with water, my face feels so soft afterwards, I like Avene's products, a little pricey but sometimes you can find it for 20% off, will repurchase
I have sensitive(red, dehydrated, itchy skin) and acne prone skin as well. This mask works wonders!
it has the best effect when used after exfoliating. makes the face really smooth and soothed.
when i first used it, i used it everyday for a week, then cut down to like once or twice a week. effects are really good. and oh, i love the thermal water as well. im using it as my toner. ;)
i am halfway through using my first tube, and i have went out to purchase a 2nd tube alrdy! definitely a good choice. will repurchase, although its expensive! too small a bottle!
This product is quite good, but not suited to my particular skin type. I think it's a good idea to be careful if you have thin, fair skin that is sensitive to rich treatments. In saying that, I react to this product less than other rich creams and masks. It makes a fantastic rescue moisturiser and doubles up really well as an eye cream at night time. I probably wouldn't buy again because it doesn't work so well as a moisture mask for my skin.
