“ Brand: Lush / Type: Face Mask / Suitable for: Face „
I am quickly approaching the big 30 and while I have so far largely managed to avoid looking my age, I have noticed a few lines and wrinkles lately as well as my skin not looking as tight or as youthful as it once was... Boo hoo! I'm not sure how much I believe in any of the 'fountain of youth' potions and lotions that you can buy but when I saw one that promised instant results (if only for a few hours) I couldn't leave it on the shelf. And so I bought, with some scepticism, Ayesha by Lush
What does the product do?
The mask has been designed when you need to look your best and you need a quick fix for your skin. It promises to instantly make you skin taut and smooth using a whole host of natural ingredients... Although the results only last for the night. The face mask contains Elderflower to balance out the skin tone, Honey to hydrate and soothe the skin and Kiwi to nourish the skin with vitamins. Also included is Asparagus to remove the dead skin cells and reveal the radiant, healthy new ones underneath and Witch Hazel to absorb grease and to tighten the skin. Kaolin also mops up those excess oils. In addition, there is Rose and Rosemary oil to regenerate the skin making it look as good as new.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied to skin that has already been cleansed so that the ingredients can work their way deeply into the skin. It is to be applied to dry skin generously, carefully avoiding the eye area, and then left to get to work for around ten minutes. You then remove the mask with a warm flannel and then rinse away the remainder of the product with warm water. You should follow up the product with a good moisturiser and continue your usual make up regime.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a small black tub which a pull off lid. In the usual Lush fashion, there is not decoration other than some white writing about the mask. It will cost you around £5 for 75 grams of the mask and it will come with an expiration date of about 3 months due to all the natural ingredients inside. It can be bought from your local Lush store or from their online website.
Aroma and Consistency
The aroma of the product is not the usual type that I would choose. It is very strong and evident so if you don't like it, don't buy it because it's going to very near your nose for ten minutes each time that you use it. It has an earthy and herbal smell which, while it is quite relaxing, is a little too strong and old fashioned for my liking. The product has the consistency and colour of a thin, grey/green clay because of the Kaolin but there are lots of little lumps and bumps in the mixture thanks to all of the other ingredients.
Application and Performance
The product is easy to remove from the pot and you can control the exact amount that you want to use so there is no wastage. It quite a good consistency that makes it fairly easy to spread. You may wish to add a touch of water just to make the job a little bit easier. It's not an attractive mask and it's not one that you want to be answering the door wearing but then you're only wearing it for ten minutes. You're not supposed to let the mask dry out and I've found that mine frequently does before the ten minutes is up so I usually take it off before the ten is up.
I only use this before a special occasion like a night out, party or just before a weekend away. It feels quite comfortable on the skin and I don't experience any tingling or discomfort whilst wearing it. The product is easily removed, although your sink may look a little dirty after use. The immediate effect is just softer skin that looks less oily and a bit brighter. The product doesn't cause me to develop any spots or cause my face to become dry. After an hour or so, that's when I see the promised effects. My skin seems to become more radiant and a bit more toned, without making my face feel tight.
I noticed that my laughter lines and crows feet were less pronounced and my complexion seemed generally healthier. Now I am only dealing with very faint aging lines so I'm not sure how this would fair on more mature aging line but I am happy with this one. When I wake up in the morning, the effects are fading away and all but gone but this was expected... And could also be due to the alcohol and reduced sleep that comes with a night out!
All in all, this is a suprising little product that does tone the skin and reduce fine lines if only for a little while. It leaves my skin looking smooth, feeling soft and my complexion brighter and more radiant. It is quick and easy to use, smells quite herbal and makes a difference to my skin. I would happily repurchase this one for those occasions when you need a quick fix.
Ayesha is a fresh face mask made by the wonderful company Lush, who use only natural and vegan friendly ingredients in their products. This is a tightening clay mask designed to be used before a special occassion as Lush claim that it makes a noticeable difference to the face.
Lush make some huge claims with this product, the main one being that it makes a quick difference to the face. Lush state that this mask gives the skin a tautness and smoothness, and they basically describe it as a temporary face lift. Another claim is that the spell binding ingredients helps smooth away wrinkles - something I think will definetly appeal to the slightly older people who use Lush, obviously I didn't buy it for this purpose as i'm only twenty however it is definetly a prouct that will appeal to a range of age groups for its multi purpose benefits on the skin. Lush also say that Ayesha will leave skin radiant, refreshed and relaxed.
The product description can be found on the lid of the pot of the face mask. The product description reads "spell binding ingredients to smooth away wrinkles. Lasts long enough for a magical evening. Tightening, absorbant clays, deeply effective asparagus, vitamin rich fresh kiwi fruit, bewitching elderflower and witch hazel. Leaves the skin radiant, relaxed and refreshed." Lush give very brief directions of use which instructs the person using the mask to apply it to clean skin, avoiding the eye area, leave for five to ten minutes, then rinse away with warm water. Keep chilled.
Considering how many claims Lush make about this, it's got suprisingly few ingredients. The main ingredient is the kaolin. Kaolin is a natural soft clay, which cleanses and exfoliates the surface of the skin. It also has the ability to absorb moisture meaning it's a perfect ingredient in a face mask for anyone with oily skin. Another, more unusual ingredient is fresh kiwi fruit. Kiwi fruit contain an enzyme called actinidi, this helps break down protein based, dead skin cells and dirt on the skin. This leaves skin clean and fresh and the fruit also has vitamins and minerals in it which nourish the skin. Another ingredient is witch hazel, something I think most people will of heard of before. Witch hazel is anti bacterial and an anti inflammatory. It also has soothing and healing properties. Another ingredient is fullers earth, which has a simple purpose - it absorbs excess oil and dirt and thoroughly cleanses the skin. There are a few other ingredients in this (including honey!) and the full list can be found on the Lush website.
**Price and Availability**
This is very reasonably priced in my opinion at £5.75 for a 75 gram tub. I usually get around four uses out of one tub if I use it sparingly but with a generous amount I can get two uses out of it which considering the effects it has and the quality, I think is decent value. The face mask can be purchased from your local Lush store or via their website.
This face mask comes in a little black Lush pot which is made of sturdy plastic. It has the product information such as a brief description and the ingredients. The product description is very inormative and there's also the Lush logo. The pot of face mask needs to be kept in the fridge as the face mask doesn't contain any preservatives. The pot fits into my crammed fridge easily as it's not a big pot, and it's easy to pick back out again due to the distinctive black and white colour scheme.
**Smell and Texture**
This mask has got a very recogniseable and unusual smell but it's not one that i'm fond of and it's probably my least favourite Lush smell. This has a very earthy smell to it with a slight hint of green vegetables which I think might be the asparagus, it smells quite gross but it still has a refreshing smell to it and the floral undertones are quite pleasant. It is not a pleasant smell overall however it isn't overpowering and it doesn't linger. I was expecting the kiwi fruits and honey to smell quite prominant but they're unfortunetly undetectable. The texture is very thick - a bit like moist mud, and the mixture is a greenish browny grey colour. There are visible kiwi seeds in it and it's not the prettiest looking face mask to be honest! It's not very smooth in texture and has various lumps and bumps but it's suprisingly easy to smooth onto my skin evenly and it doesn't all blob onto my face and go gloopy.
Me and my boyfriend went to a big shopping centre last week and they had a huge Lush store - I was in heaven! I had a quick look around and this face mask was one that instantly appealed to me. The whole product description was almost unbelievable but as I am a regular Lush customer I am aware that they always keep their promise. As me and my boyfriend were planning to go out for dinner with his parents that night, I decided to buy a pot and try it - I was in need of a pick me up and to be honest I was very curious (verging on excited!) to see if it would actually make a noticeable difference. The price appealed to me hugely as it's quite cheap at just over a fiver and I didn't hesistate in buying a tub of it.
I tried it the same day as I bought it while preparing to get ready before a meal. I decided to use it in the bath before washing my hair as I like to relax when I have a face mask on. I was expecting the smell to be quite fruity, however it's quite a strong earthy smell with grassy undertones and a slight hint of floral. This didn't put me off though and I scooped a decent amount of the thick mask out and lathered it onto my face, obviously avoiding my eyes and mouth. The mask started to get tighter within a minute or so and it dried quickly, although it did have a slight wet feel to it even when it had dried. This doesn't dry too hard which I like and I was still able to open my mouth etc, the clay masks that go rock hard scare me as it feels like my face is paralyzed however this one was just right.
I laid in the bath relaxing for around 20 minutes and then I decided to wash it off. I tried using my hands at first, then a flannel but in the end I resorted to using a loofah as it had well and truly stuck to my skin. It was slightly messy and time consuming to get off but the results were instantly noticeable. My face appeared much more dewy and smooth, it looked fresh, clean and my skin tone appeared more even with any redness reduced considerably. My skin was soft to the touch and I was over the moon with the results. I also noticed that my face was slightly more matte but not dried out, it simply looked in amazing condition.
I was a little worried that the smell may linger on my skin, however it didn't. I got complimented by my boyfriend and his parents on our meal out on my healthy complexion, and I hadn't even used a drop of foundation. My skin felt amazing even for a few days afterwards and I am overall happy with the results. I still have a decent amount left which I will be using for my baby shower as I am going to a nice golf club for a meal and get together with family and friends. I know it sounds sad but I am actually quite excited to use it as my skin looked and felt incredible!
This is a highly effective face mask, it's not a miracle worker but if you want to make the most of your skin and want an amazingly healthy and fresh complexion I would highly reccomend the Ayesha fresh face mask.
As you will know if you read my reviews regularly, I am trying to sample all of Lush's products, including fresh face masks. This is made easier by the fact that you can obtain a free face mask when you take 5 black pots to Lush - and I get through a lot of Lush and therefore a lot of pots!
Last time I had the chance to choose a face mask, I decided to go for Ayesha, as it was a mask I hadn't tried before. It is named after a book by Henry Rider Haggard. I don't know the book, but believe that it deals with the concept of immortality - and this mask is designed to smooth out wrinkles, giving the illusion of immortality for a few hours!
Ayesha is designed as a mini facelift in a tub. As mentioned above, it is meant to gently tighten and firm skin for the few hours during which you are using it. In order to do this, the mask contains elderflower infusion and elderflower vinegar in order to balance out the skin tone. It also contains Fuller's Earth and witchhazel which help absorb grease and dirt as well as tighten the skin. Asparagus contains enzymes which help to break down dead skin, leaving your face brighter and smoother, while patchouli, rosemary and rose absolute oils help skin to regenerate. Kiwi fruit contains vitamin C, and honey moisturises the skin - though its inclusion means that the mask is not suitable for vegans.
The mask comes in a small black pot, which doesn't look like a lot, but based on previous experience with Lush's fresh face masks, one pot lasts for about 8 masks which makes it pretty good value, even at the full purchase price of £5.50. This mask was no exception, and it had a smooth texture meaning it was easy to use less of it at once (unlike some other fresh face masks where you do end up using a bit more because of the chunky texture). You do need to store it in the fridge after purchase to stop it going off, and you should be aware that these face masks have comparatively short shelf lives - usually three or four weeks after purchase - as they need to be used fresh for the best effect. I usually use mine twice a week.
Ayesha, once opened, is a browny-green colour and has a pleasant fresh earthy scent. It smelled edible, rather like vegetables or fruit (which made sense owing to the inclusion of kiwi fruit and asparagus). The smooth texture meant that it was very easy to apply a thin layer onto my face. I simply smoothed it on after cleansing my skin and left it for the recommended ten minutes. Because it had been kept in the fridge, it felt lovely and cool on my skin and I didn't experience any skin irritation.
Removing the mask was quite tricky as it had dried onto my skin. I found it was very difficult to get the remnants of the mask off, even after washing my face over the sink with soap and water, using a cotton wool pad covered and cleanser, and using a pad soaked in toner. My skin still felt slightly gritty until the next day, when I could get in the shower and really get the water on my face while I was washing my hair. However, my skin didn't seem to suffer any ill effects because of this.
I didn't notice dramatic changes in the condition of my skin after using this mask, the way I did when using some of the others. I didn't notice a reduction in spots and my skin wasn't any more matte than usual. However my face did look brighter and my skin appeared healthy and in good condition. I can't put my finger on exactly why this was, this is just the impression I got through looking in the mirror!
It's hard for me to judge the effect of this face mask on my skin as it's designed for smoothing wrinkles and I don't actually have any. I wanted to give it a go anyway but in the future I think I will stick to one of the other masks. It did make my skin brighter and appear in good condition - it appeared a bit tighter too but the effects weren't dramatic enough to warrant me repurchasing. However if Lush are still making this mask when I am 40 then I may well go back to it!
Lush Ayesha Fresh Face Pack
On one of my many visits to my favourite Lush store in the Westfield Centre in Derby I took back five of their black plastic pots cleaned and washed out and ready for recycling. As my reward I could choose one of their delicious looking, almost edible fresh face packs. I always have such trouble choosing which one as they are all so great but this time I chose 'Ayesha as I wanted one for my rather mature skin as it felt a bit dry and this was recommended.
THE FACE PACKS GENERALLY
In the shop the various facepacks are in big stainless steel bowls on ice and presented with fresh items that are in the actual facepack as garnish; so this one had some cut Kiwi fruit as garnish. The face packs are made fresh in the Derby shop for their use only. Other products are made down in the factory in Dorset and brought in to the shop.
As these are made with fresh ingredients they have a limited life and must be stored in the fridge. I have once had two face packs as I was given one in the shop and because we were just about to go on holiday I stuck it in the freezer. We were away about four weeks and when I returned I retrieved my facepack and it was absolutely fine, it lasted another six weeks in the fridge and smelled great and I used it once a week for the six weeks. So don't worry too much about the keeping aspect as they do last a fair time if kept in the fridge and used with clean fingers or a spoon to get the stuff out.
WHAT IS THIS AYESHA ONE LIKE?
It comes in a small back recyclable pot and you get 75g in the pot. The cost if you buy it is £5.25 which is quite expensive but I don't think I have bought one for quite a while as I have had free ones through bringing back my black pots.
This facepack is a rather muddy green marshy ooze looking colour, about the same as a stagnant mud pool I suppose but smooth not lumpy.
It is very thick rather like a paste, thick mud texture and not at all runny. In fact I find it rather too thick so as I am spreading it on my face I add a bit of water to smooth it on more easily. It is quite smooth in texture though and spreads as thin or thick as you like.
What does it smell like? Well it strange smell not totally unpleasant a mixture of fruit and slightly earthy smell. I can detect the fresh lime and the aroma that I can't quite pick I think is asparagus, sort of earthy but unique. The smell is really hard to describe and I wish I could find something that smelled similar. It isn't the nicest of the face packs for smell but it does a good job otherwise.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH IT?
Well when I use my facepack I always start with clean skin and so I use a cleanser to wipe away any grime of the day. And in my case it has to be a Lush cleanser called 9 to 5 as I really like this one and find it quite gentle.
Next stage is one I was advised to add by the girl in the Lush shop one day and that is to give my face a feed with a serum and the one I use is a great little bar of serum called 'Full of Grace'. This ensures that your face doesn't get too dried out and feeds it while you are having the facemask.
Then open the pot of facemask and spread it all over your face except around the eyes. As I said I find the Ayesha one quite thick so I help it by wetting my hands to smooth it on.
According to Lush you shouldn't let it go completely dry and crusty before washing it off but I leave mine until dry as I usually get in the bath and lie there. If it does get dry then it doesn't matter as I can use lots of water to gently wash it off.
I then get out of the bath and dry myself patting my face dry before I reach for the toner to close those pores and then of course moisturise as for night or day depending on when you use it.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
As I lie in the bath I can smell the slightly earthy aroma and while not unpleasant I can't say I'd want to smell of this one. I really relax and lie back and feel the benefits of this mask. I love the way my skin feels fed after this one and find my skin feels very soft but a little firmer. The fine lines are slightly less noticeable but the wrinkles are still there but it just looks tighter and I feel like I have had a deep clean too. I am past the age when I suffer from spots but I do think that the witch hazel and fruit help clean my pores and they look less big and open and my face generally slightly tighter.
I have quite a sensitive skin and am allergic to many cosmetic chemicals but this has not given me any problems and I have used at least four pots over the last two years. I do like a change so don't always get the same one.
The ingredients in this one are a blend of fullers earth and honey with elderflower and limeflower, witch hazel, rose, kiwi fruit and fresh asparagus. This combination of ingredients is rather interesting and each is there for a different pupose, kiwi and asparagus are there to get rid of the dead skin cells while the fullers earth helps to remove any dirt and grease finally we have honey is soothing and moisturising.
The ingredients in this are supposed to smooth away wrinkles and the effect is meant to last 'long enough for a magical evening' but I have found it also helps to keep my skin clear and fresh looking. I tend to use mine in the morning. Usually Monday mornings usually as my husband goes off to play golf early in the morning so I have time to myself to pamper in the bathroom. However this one I also use in the afternoon if we are going out because it is a kind of mini face lift. It smoothes the fine lines for a few hours before they creep back in.
WOULD I RECOMMEND?
Yes I love this one as it is a face mask that really does smooth those tiny fine lines. The big ones are still there but it is a facemask not a miracle. The smell is slightly odd but not totally unpleasant I wish I could describe the smell better but it is earthy and slightly fruity but certainly not at all creamy or sweet if that makes sense. It does make my skin feel awake and alive and looks a bit smoother too so I am happy. I am especially happy as it was free although it does cost £5.25 if you don't have five pots to hand back. This is still quite good value as easily get six uses from this little pot as you don't need to cake it on thickly and if you use my trick of wet hands it goes on really smoothly.
Thanks for reading. This review may be posted on other sites under my same user name.
I've long been a fan of Lush and their fresh cosmetics and treat myself to a visit to the shop every time I go into Edinburgh. I've had mixed results with their fresh face masks so don't really like splashing out £6 for a tub of something I have never tried in case I don't like it or I have an allergic reaction to it like I did with one of the Xmas masks. I'm always happy to accept a freebie though so when I saw they had little sample pots of Ayesha on my last visit I was happy to take one home to try.
Ayesha claims to be a spellbinding mix of ingredients which help to smooth out wrinkles. I'm in my mid 30's and am lucky that I still have young looking skin but I have noticed the beginings of fine lines around my eyes. This face mask is probably designed for more mature skin than mine in mind but considering I had brilliant effects from the cupcake mask designed for teenage skin after my daughter decided she didn't like it I didn't let that put me off.
Ayesha is made of a blend of fullers earth so is clay based and also containes honey, elderflower and limeflower, witch hazel, rose, kiwi fruit and fresh asparagus. This combination of ingredients is intriguing, kiwi and asparagus are there to remove dead skin cells and the fullers earth removes dirt and grease while the honey is soothing and moisturising.
I will warn you that this combination of ingredients both looks and smells absolutely foul, the mask is a green gunk with the kiwi seeds being visible. The smell is both earthy and slightly fruity yet I can also smell the asparagus which is a vegetable I detest.
The mask is very thick and fairly difficult to smoothe onto damp skin as it keeps clumping but with a little perseverance it eventually stays in place. After 10 minutes or so I feel the mask drying out so it is time to wash it off, it comes off easily with a bit of gentle rubbing. It's not a particularly relaxing experience using the mask due to the horrible smell.
The results I get using Ayesha are really impressive. My whole face looks visibly brighter and healthier after I have used it and my skin feels silky soft. It is brilliant to use before a night out or if I am feeling sluggish to pep myself up a bit. It is definitely the most impressive results I have had from using any mask and I have used dozens over the years. I don't think it makes any difference to the fine lines but it did tighten the pores and make them less visible as well as giving me a glow. Sadly the effect doesn't last for very long and my skin is back to normal the day after I use it.
I managed to get 5 applications from the tiny sample pot so I'm sure the large 75g pot would last for many more applications making it excellent value for money at £4.95. A good pick me up for tired and sliggish looking skin, if only it smelled nicer it would be perfect!
I'm a huge fan of face masks as I love nothing more than running a bath, putting on a face mask and having some me time for an hour or so. I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant and I'm feeling a tad uncomfortable to say the least so my hour in the bath is great for relaxing. My current face mask of choice is of course from Lush and it is one which is suited for all skin types. Ayesha is a face mask I have used quite a bit of over the past few years as it's great for my skin as it perks it up and gives it a healthy glow. It also has a wonderful aroma.
Ayesha is a khaki green colour which doesn't look particularly appealing but it manages to work wonders. It has two natural clays which make up its base; fullers earth and kaolin (china clay). Fullers Earth does a great job of absorbing dirt and oils leaving you with nicely cleansed skin. Kaolin clay is great for exfoliating the skin, removing dead skin cells leaving nicely polished skin.
Fullers Earth and Kaolin work well alongside the fresh asparagus and kiwi which both help cleanse and tone the skin. Asparagus is used in Ayesha not just for its nutritional properties but it also has enzymic qualities which are ideal for the skin. Kiwi fruit is not just a fantastic fruit to eat but it's also great for the skin. It contains an enzyme called actinidin and this breaks down dead skin cells and dirt on the skin, leaving your skin incredibly clean. Because kiwi is high in minerals and vitamins these do a great job of nourishing your skin, leaving it positively glowing.
Honey is one of my favourite ingredients as I'm a huge fan of its skin caring properties. Honey is a humectant and is a natural, gentle moisturiser it's also incredibly antibacterial making it ideal to clean the skin. And of course another ideal ingredient is Witch hazel is incredibly antibacterial but makes it great for inflammation and for any spots that you may have. Lastly, the team of antibacterial and astringent ingredients is elderflower vinegar as it has plenty of anti-inflammatory properties. It is used in Ayesha to balance the pH of the skin.
Ayesha has a wonderful fresh, floral aroma which makes it really hard for you to take the mask off. Ayesha's fragrance is quite complex and made up of a lot of fragrances. Elderflower and limeflower decoction is quite a light fragrance and it quietly relieves your skin of any irritation. Rose absolute is one of my favourite oils due to its complex aroma. Rose is ideal for those with depression as it has a balancing effect but it's also great for moisturising the skin. Rosemary oil provides a fresh aroma (albeit strong) to add depth to the initial floral fragrance. It manages to tone and keep skin clear. Patchouli oil is an oil I sometimes can't stand due to its quite smoky aroma but fortunately it's quite undetectable in Ayesha. However, it has great relaxant properties and it also manages to cool the skin.
Ayesha has quite a nice medium to thick consistency which makes it incredibly easy to apply. I tend to apply it when I am in the bath, about 10 minutes before I am going to get out. All you do is simply apply a thinnish layer on your face (carefully around the eyes) and simply wait about 10 minutes before removing it. Ayesha doesn't go rock hard but you can tell when time is up as your face gets a bit tighter. To take it off you simply need to have warm flannel and remove the mask gently without scrubbing. You can of course rinse off but I prefer to use a flannel.
The end result? I instantly feel relaxed and my skins feels a lot fresher after using Ayesha. My skin is cooled and calmed and any spots that I may have had seemed to be reduced by the next day. Honey does a great job with rose to moisturise the skin so if you are like me you won't need to follow up with a moisturiser.
Out of one pot I can get about 4 masks which is great for the money you pay as it lasts a lot longer. I would definitely recommend Ayesha to everyone as it is meant to be suitable for all skin types and if you actually manage to get 4 uses out of one pot its not actually too expensive.
What Lush says:
Spell binding ingredients to smooth away wrinkles. Lasts long enough for a magical evening. Tightening and absorbent clays, deeply effective asparagus, vitamin rich kiwi fruit, bewitching elderflower and witch hazel leave the skin radiant, relaxed and refreshed. Apply to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave for five to ten minutes, then rinse away with warm water. Keep chilled.
£4.95 per 75g pot
VEGETARIAN, Fullers Earth, Honey; Elderflower and Limeflower Decoction (Sambucus nigra and Citrus aurantifolia), Glycerine, Fresh Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis), Fresh Kiwi Fruit (Actinidia chinensis), Kaolin, Witch Hazel Extract (Hamamelis virginiana), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis), Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Elderflower Vinegar, Bentonite Gel, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume
I do like to pamper myself quite a loit and I love applying a face mask as my skin feels super smooth and silky after using one and I really enjoy a feel good factor for the rest of the evening or day depending on when I use it.
This comes in a 100g tub and I reckon on getting at least five applications out of a tub which roughly works out at £1.30 a time. It is rather unappealing looking as it is a muddy pale brown colour with a slightly solid texture that is easy to smooth over your face and does not fall off everywhere as it has a strong enough consistency.
I tend to leave it on for between ten minutes and a quarter of an hour and then rinse it off and my face feels very healthy with a nice glow to it. If I'm going out I tend to find that I only need apply minimal make up. It is a bit messy when you rinse it off but the mess is worth having to deal with because of the quality of the product.
