Noteworthy Ingredients:

  • CHESTNUT EXTRACT

    Activates the natural exfoliation process, polishing away dullness so skin looks radiant, healthy and well-rested (even when you’re not).

  • VITAMIN C

    This powerful antioxidant brightens skin tone and behaves like a moisture-magnet, boosting the hydration barrier.

  • NIACINAMIDE

    A naturally occurring compound of Vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, this super ingredient visibly reduces pores, uneven skin and fine lines.

  • GREEN TEA

    Soothes frazzled complexions with its skin-toning powers, reducing puffiness and inflammation while protecting cells from free radicals.

  • ARGININE

A naturally occurring amino acid; the building block of proteins.

  • VITAMIN E

An antioxidant that helps rid the skin of free radicals.

  • SODIUM HYALURONATE

Boosts skin’s moisture content, soothes, and defends against moisture loss.

Color/Shade/#/Scent: This mask is FRAGRANCE-FREE. There is a very small amount of Peppermint Oil, Corn Mint Oil and Orange Oil to give this mask a tingling effect on the skin—plus it naturally smells amazing, like a very mild mint scent.

Out of Ten

Lives Up to Its Claims: 10

It's instantly cooling (but mildly so, which I love), and very moisturizing. I've tried this as a short-term mask as a way to prep my skin for makeup, as well as an overnight mask, and it worked really well both ways.

Feel: 10

It's a rich and smooth cream and the mild cooling and tingling effect on the skin really helps make you feel like you're waking your skin up. It feels luxurious when you apply it - a total treat!

Worth the Cost: 10

This product is reasonably-priced. It will last a while - with a product so rich you don't need a ton to make it work.

Smell: 10

I was worried it would be overly-minty, but I was pleasantly surprised at how light and fresh the scent is. It isn't flowery, which I think is a good thing, because certain flowery products really seem to cause headaches for me!

Effectiveness: 10

Honestly, they nailed it. The ingredients in this mask do exactly what they set out to do: it effectively soothes, moisturizes, and calms. I used it in Florida after time in the sun and it felt SO GOOD!

Packaging: 10

Yep, another ten. I love that it's in a tube instead of a jar. It's more sanitary to squeeze the product onto your hands rather than scoop it out of a jar. The ice-blue color is gorgeous, too!

Ingredients: 10

The ingredient list is impressive and doesn't have red flags popping out at you. Lots of "natural" ingredients and no parabens, sulfates, phthalates.

Would I Repurchase?  

Oooobviously.

What Would I Recommend Instead? N/A
