Don't use if you have sensitive skin. I have oily skin but I love buying face masks and use once a week as a treat whilst laying in the bath so when I saw this one in the brochure I decided to buy it as it was aimed at lifting out excess oil. If you find your skin can't handle irritating masks then don't purchase this one. The product comes out as a cream and is easy to get out of the tube. You apply it to your face and leave for around 5 minutes - once I left it to dry it did indeed go dry and I found it quite a struggle to get it off.. Maybe I just left it on longer than I thought? The smell isn't strong and has a floral scent which I like. Like me if you do leave it on too long and it leaves your face feeling a bit tight apply a bit more moisturiser than normal. It leaves your skin feeling smooth but if you do over do it and leave it on too long you will be scraping it off your skin and it will be soar!
I absolutely LOVE this product!! Unfortunately I can't remember how much it cost me, but to be honest I do remember thinking, 'Oh that's fairly small.' But no problem - I soon forgot about that when I flipped the lid and sniffed the product, the smell is fantastic. At first when I applied the mask I used a bit too much as it did not dry properly and was just a bit sticky. When I used it again I used a small amount and this was perfect. It dried pretty much straight away and although it says on the tube leave for 5 minutes I tend to leave it about 10 minutes :) It rinses off really well and does not leave your skin red like most masks that you have to scrub off! When it is rinsed off that lovely smell lingers and it just smells so nice and it leaves your skin feeling so soft! I use it every other week and have glowing skin, which I'm pretty sure is due to this product "lifting the dirt" off my face as it states in the catalogue - I didn't realise I was so dirty :)
I love trying new beauty products and I cannot help myself from browsing the Avon catalogue and this is one of the products I decided to purchase. I am always looking for products that help reduce breakouts and are sensitive to my skin so I thought I would give this a try and at £2.75 when on offer for a 75ml bottle I thought it was a bargain. **Application and results** The product comes in a squeeze bottle with an easy to open flip top lid and then you simply squeeze the desired amount of product out. As this face mask has a thick consistency I find it easy to get the right amount of the product out of the bottle without any problems at all. I tend to wash my face before I use the mask as I find it a lot easier to apply the product evenly. Then I simply cover my face in a thin layer of the mask and wait for it to dry. You do need to give the bottle a good shake before use otherwise I tend to find it a little watery and difficult to apply. I do find you need to be careful with the amount you apply and make sure it is a very thin layer you apply as the first time I used this I added a little too much and it took forever to dry and the results were not fantastic as I had simply used too much of the mask for it to set properly. I also found it was really difficult to remove when too much of the product is used as it turns into a clay type consistency rather than an easy to remove thin layer. I like that the mask is very easy to smooth over my face creating an even coverage and the mask is very light until it begins to set then it does feel a little heavy and tight but of course this happens with all face masks. Once you have applied a thin layer of the mask making sure you keep away from the mouth and eyes you need to leave the mask on until it dries. The bottle says to leave it five minutes but I find it needs a little longer maybe around 8 to 10 minutes before it is fully set and dried completely. The mask has a lovely lavender colouring to it and as it begins to dry it turns a lot lighter and this is a great way to tell when the face mask is ready to be removed. Then it comes to taking the mask off which I do find it very easy of course around my hair line is a little more difficult to remove the product but I always tie it back to make sure none goes in my hair. I only have to rinse the mask off my face at the water brings the mask away effortlessly leaving me with lovely soft skin then I simply pat my face down with a towel. The first thing you notice is the scent of the product it is amazing, I find it too be a really strong scent so it lingers on your skin after I have removed the product itself but it is not too over bearing which I like with anything that is going on my face. It is a very floral scent but not too sweet which I find a problem with a lot of other products. The results are instant as you would expect my face feels fresh and smooth and really healthy. I have combination skin and I find this helps with my oily t zone area and creates a more even skin tone. My skin looks and feels a lot better and more hydrated. I was a little worried it may dry my skin a little as I find this to be the case with a number of face masks but actually there was no dryness at all and my skin seemed to respond a lot better to my usual moisturiser leaving me with a radiant complexion. I have sensitive skin and I usually hate product with a scent being used on my face but this is great I have had no reaction at all to the product and the scent lingers but in not too strong. Since I began using this product my skin breakouts have really reduced and even while I was pregnant when I tend to flare up a little more this helped reduce them considerably. I also like that it really helps with removing blackheads and there is no redness after I use the face mask which I tend to find with other products. Avon describe this as a mask that "Helps to lift out dirt, debris and excess oil without over-drying, leaving skin feeling soft and revived" which I completely agree with it left my skin feeling amazing and helps remove oil from areas that need it without drying the rest of my skin out. **Summary** As you only need a small amount of the product to create a thin layer I find this tube lasts for a very long time. I tend to use a face mask every couple of weeks and I find it really help revitalise my skin and leave it feeling softer and looking more radiant. If you cannot already tell I absolutely love this face mask and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is not drying on the skin and leaves it feeling amazing; it helps tighten pours, reduces outbreaks on my skin and really helps deep cleanse my pours. You can purchase this from your Avon representative or from Avon online and at £5 regular retail price it really is a fantastic price too. I would recommend this to anyone it works really well, smells amazing and leaves you with fantastic skin and all at a reasonable price what more could you want!
