OK, so I was at the supermarket and I was getting some toiletries when I saw that they were having a bogo for this brand, Since I am always on the hunt for a good exfoliator I figured I would take the plunge ($8 for 2 bottles seemed good, I however got this one and their cucumber peeling mask)
I decided to do a first impressions mini review on it. A lot of higher end brands get reviewed, so why not a drugstore brand?
WARNING weird picture of my long face below.
This is the packaging, and it seems like it could be very promising…
fyi, I am always wary of things that say all skin types, but I decided to still give this a go.
A little dollop in my hand, it had a unique and unexpected consistency.
I think I was expecting something that had more charcoal, this just looked like a repackaged sugar scrub (which this mask is, but I also was hoping for something more, well maskish)
Here is where I applied it to my face, you are supposed to let it sit on your face for 5-7 minutes, then massage it into your skin for 1-2 then rinse off. It didn’t really like staying in one spot and started sort of sliding on my face, so that was a bother.
(my face was all puffy that day, UGH)
OK so anyways I managed to let it sit on there, then I massaged it in and rinsed it off.
Overall it left my skin feeling VERY clean, and smooth. Was a hassle to leave on, but I think that the annoyance of that is worth the pay off. Especially when this was very affordable and easy to find. I don’t know if I will rebuy though. So I am still on the hunt for exfoliators!
