This was my first time using a mask that is a brightening mask.
I had used Mario Badescu’s Whitening Mask in the past. They are kinda similar but not same.
I honestly would have not tired this mask on its own, because these ‘brightening’ things always make me look like ghost. I find these to be ‘gimmiks’…(that’s the word…right???)

Anywho, this was part of the kit and its meant for Normal to Dry skin, which is very me. Its not normal, but its on drier side especially in winters. The best thing that I liked about the mask is its CONSISTENCY.
The consistency of the mask is creamy, soft and fluffy like whipped cream, but not runny. The feel on skin is very nice and calming. Its soothing, that’s a nice word for describing it. There was no stretching, drying, tingling, itchy or burning sensation. Its easy to apply. Just a little is needed as its spreads very easily.
The mask does not dry, so there is no stretchy feel to skin and its good in a way because for dry skin. A mask that has kaolin in it, which is meant for oily skin literally pulls out all the oil from the face and within minutes you feel like removing the mask. This one is more like a Hydrating mask.
I just wash my face after 20-25 minutes and it just takes a minute to remove everything, because the mask is moist!!!

The result is instant…The face looks BRIGHT and when I mean bright, read it as white. This does not makes me look like a ghost or anything because the effect is short lived.
I don’t care for the brightening part. My skin feels soft, hydrated and clean. There are no rashes or redness and the skin is soft and supple to touch.

I didn’t expect any kind of exfoliation from this one. It didn’t clog any pores nor it broke me out. Its good. I find it more of a relaxing mask.
I am struggling with words, because I need that one word…anyways…

All I can say is it’s a good mask for dry skin and I don’t think people with oily skin would like this. It does not removes any oil from the skin, and for people with oily skin, that’s what is needed.
