Had an allergic reaction to this mask, must be because of the glycolic acid. I left it for 10 minutes as required but after removing it, the area around my eyes became swollen for almost 2 days. I also got a rash around my eyes too. Needless to say I won't use it again.
First time I used this mask I wasn't impressed because it was really hard to wash off and left me with a greasy film on my face. Then I followed another reviewers suggestion and used it right before I showered and it came off squeaky clean. The smell is nice but the texture is a bit sticky. My skin feels so smooth and refreshed every time I use it like I have scrubbed away a nasty layer of dead skin. I wouldn't recommend this for sensitive skin as it has glycolic acid in it and its pretty intense but thats also what makes it super effective. I will purchase this again!
Don't mind the smell, seems to work well, but it stings my face a bit. Wouldn't buy if you have dry skin.
I found this product does smooth your skin, but left mine very dull. Noticed that my skin became darker after use. People were asking me if I had been out in the sun. I will not purchase again.
It has a very light watery texture which I like because I have a combination, acne prone skin. It has this light pumpkin-honey sweet scent that I did find pleasant.
The results are subtle but still, I can notice the difference. Skin is immediately smoother and has a healthy glow.
This mask didn't work for me...Burns a little while using, and skin was dry afterwards.
I like the texture. Not too fancy about the smell, and skin feels a little bit greasy after. Best to apply before taking a shower. Might try other Andalou masks before purchasing again..
This product helped to smooth the surface of the skin on my face. I could feel a difference immediately after use. As for the brightening effect, it is likely very subtle or yet to be seen, (maybe I have not used the product enough yet to get that result). I personally did not find a problem with the smell, in fact, I found that it smelled like pumpkin spice pie. I will purchase the product again as it's affordable and has skin smoothing effects; however, I will likely look into another product to achieve a noticeable brightening result.
This product makes my face feel very soft and radiant. Will definitely buy again.
The first time I used this, I really had a hard time with the smell. Some people like it, but it nauseates me. As for the effects, I noticed my skin looked a little brighter after I used it, but it didn't really do much for other things, like uneven skin tone or acne. Overall, it is not a bad product but I wouldn't buy it again because of my aversion to its smell.
It can be the best mask I have ever used.
Do love the unique smell, leaving my face fresh and smooth.
I have been using this for a month now.
My skin type: combination and very prone to acne.
Smell and texture: pumpkin and cinnamon (delicious), texture is very puree-like, mixed with oil (so...a cream-free pumpkin soup?).
Sensations after application: tingling
Usage: applied it to clean and dry skin, left it on for 10 minutes. I use it twice a week, before showering.
Noticeable effects: skin is brighter after, a lot smoother especially if I massage my face before washing the product off. The product does not break me out but does leave a thin oil residue (that's why I rinse it off under the shower). It doesn't really get rid of my dead skin which are still visible after every use.
This is a lovely product. It makes my skin feel really good, and has greatly reduced my acne.
I love love this mask, my skin feels so smooth after using it. I use it every day, worth every penny.
Finding skincare that actually does what it claims to do is quite a challenge. This mask exceeds all my expectations, plus it smells like pumpkin pie! Yum!I will keep buying it.
awesome product! skin looks even, brighter, refreshed and my face completly glows after using this product. i love it and will continue using it, looking forward to trying your other products :)
I love love love this mask (and all products by Andalou Naturals)! I was amazed by how easily it washes off and how fresh and glowing my skin looked immediately after removing it with a washcloth. I have very sensitive skin that normally turns red when it comes into contact with water or masks or any other products, but when I take this mask off, my skin is perfectly even-toned (and I typically have an uneven complexion), so this stuff is fantastic. It seems to soothe my skin and also plump it up a bit. It definitely helps treat my acne. I highly recommend it!
Excellent mask for brightening up the complexion. My skin just glows after using it! If I think my skin is looking a bit dull, this is my go to mask. It makes me look so rested after. Compared to other pumpkin masks I have seen around this is set at a great price. Try it out. Pamper yourself ;)
I just purchased this and used it last night. I really enjoyed this mask actually even though it doesn't dry like a traditional clay or mud mask. I found I could see a difference last night after washing it off - my skin looked "fresher" if that makes sense. You can feel a slight tingle, at least I did, because of the Glycolic Acid, but it was in no way uncomfortable at all. I really enjoyed using it and plan to continue to use it - I will update in a month's time with some results. For the price, I highly recommend trying it! It's really a nice product!
I have a somewhat uneven complexion in part due to sun and in part due to acne, and this product is great as it has the brightening benefits of glycolic acid yet it's mild enough it does not irritate my sensitive skin. I leave on for 10 minutes , product doesnt dry but sets and then rinse with warm water, skin is refreshed and brighter without a tight dry feeling.
