This is an interesting product.

I received a few samples of it to try out

It almost feels like a lotion / moisturizer and your skin does absorb it but it is a mask.
I woudln't say it's SUPER hydrating but it does make your skin supple.
I didn't have any reactions although my skin is sensitive.

I really enjoy this mask on days my skin is feeling dry. I like to apply it at night, it sinks in really nicely, it just leaves your face a little shiny. I'll leave it on overnight and in the morning rinse it off, it leaves my skin moisturized and hydrated. I would definitely recommend this mask!!

For this price tag it's WOW! I use this 1-2 times a week, also under my eye area and especially after more heavy treatments. One favourite is to put it on after some 20 min use of Paula's weekly AHA-treatment. Such a good combination. This has been my go to-mask for 2 years straight. Will never stop purchasing!

It didn't feel that great on my face. It balled up if I touched my face. It may be good in a humid climate, but dried up my face here in the desert.

I love some PC products, Love the Moisture Boost which they discontinued and said Calm line was a replacement but made my under eyes so dry after using it a few months, so tried this mask - burning sensation as soon as I put it on, had to take it off and the skin recovery moisturizer for extra dry skin I felt was not moisturizing at all! Trying to find a replacement for my moisture boost before I'm totally out - sucks when you love something for years and they say they make it Better but it's worse!

I used to love this mask but after they reformulated, I found it stung my skin on contact and unlike before when it would stay moist - the new formulation now kind of dries/cakes after a while. It's a shame - the original formulation was beautiful.

bought this mask after reading great reviews about it. it comes in a opaque huge tube, which maintains the quality the ingredients inside (i like! :P)

Application wise, its a smooth texture, not too oily. feels like it gets absorbs almost immediately. i usually use it at night after Paula's Choice 1% retinol treatment and 15% Vitamin serum. This mask helps to seal both products in and the same time counter the dryness that results from these 2 products.

i use this almost everyday and have no issue of skin irritation or whatsoever. Feels v gentle yet moisturising on my skin. would recommend this product even for oily combination skin like mine.

Very moisturizing mask, very good during the winter. I love that it is fragrance free. It would be too much if used during winter.

Does exactly what it's suppose to do - hydrates and leaves skin looking and feeling fresh and "bouncy". No irriation whatsoever. If you have dry skin and/or suffer from redness, this is is the face mask for you.

My skin is so dehydrated, it just soaks it right up. So, it doesn't seem very mask-like. I'll keep buying it, though.
