I have been using this for about a year now. I love Aveda period. I have normal skin and can see how ppl might want a thicker moisture mask. This is a lightweight gel mask. I have gifted for use after home dermabrasion, which I use it for as well along with as part of my weekly regimen of facial treatment masks. I use this immediately after Aveda's Deep Cleansing Herbal Clay Masque. It's a nice product and here you get a lot for your money, but because it's on the light (texture-wise) side, I somehow feel I'm paying more. Great for warmer months, but I may have to opt for something more in winters coming.

Before this I used Origins Drink It Up for several years. Nice product too. Go for that if you want a thicker, cream mask, and you like natural botanical-like stuff, not perfumey.

Honestly this is the BEST thing that you can put on your face. It's pure, clean, and refreshing on your skin. I use this mask 3-4 times a week and it has been a godsend in helping me get through rough Canadian winters. Even in the summer I still use it to refresh my skin after being in the sun. I've gone through about 4 tubes of this mask in the past year; I usually exfoliate, then follow with a yogurt mask, and then I leave this on for about 1-2 hours (the tube says 10-20 minutes but leave it on for as long as you have the time for it). It's THE MOST relaxing thing that you can put on your face. Seriously, buy it and give yourself a spa day at home. This will leave your skin feeling soft, clean, and more relaxed - best thing after work or at the end of a busy week.

This mask delivers on what it says. It hydrates and restores moisture. I use it after a clay mask.

I always wanted to try a hydrating masque so I picked up this. It make my skin really soft afterward and it get rid of the flakes. I noticed that some of my small pimples also fade a bit from this and I only let it on for 7 mins or so. So I like this masque alot! Its hydrating but not intensively hydrating.

I don't use a lot of masks, other than my own home-made aspirin mask, but I bought this on an expensive impulse, and I do like it. It's not too annoyingly or cloyingly scented (one big thing that will make me immediately dislike a product) and it gives a visible boost of hydration and refreshment to my skin, especially in winter.

I've tried the trick of applying a thin layer to my face overnight, and while that can be a little sticky, it's a nice way to get the moisturising effect without wandering around doing nothing with my face covered in goo for ten minutes.

I don't think this is a must-have essential in my cabinet by any means, but overall my experience of this masque is all good.

This mask works alright. It wasn't super moisture or "intense" moisture, but it does slightly work to moisturize my skin. I won't repurchase but I am using the one I bought just to avoid being wasteful. I'm putting it on every couple of days over my makeup and letting it set five or ten minutes before I wash my face. Using it this way, I notice a little difference but not enough to justify purchasing it again. It works better this way for me, than it did by following the directions.

I have dry skin so it's difficult sometimes to find products that will refresh your skin without making it feel all greasy. This product definitely helped put a glow on my face and it can be used day or night without drying your skin out. I would definitely use this product again!!! :)

I've used this many times and really like it. It's very refreshing, smooth, and hydrating. It can burn a little depending on one's skin type but overall, it does the job for me.

I have been using this product for years. I have always liked it. But recently I tried it as an overnight mask. I put my serums (e.g., TNS) on and applied this over top. My skin was so smooth and glowy the following day. I actually had a (straight) male friend tell me my skin looks radiant. A couple of others commented as well.

It's a great mask. It will not clog your pores. I think it's great.

It burns. My skin feels tighter after I wash it off. Smooth skin, but it doesn't feel any more moisturized than before.
