I am almost ashamed how long I have had this set off to the side to review, I have used it before this time but just haven’t really gotten around to writing a face mask Friday post about it, so I thought it was time to I do that, so let’s dive in.
This is the Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask which will run you $14.99 and can be picked up at a few different places.
I guess I will just start where I always start and that is by talking about the packaging. This packaging feels very grown-up, which I hope makes sense to someone other than me. I don’t love the look of the packaging, it’s just an interesting look if you ask me, but it works. This jar does feel rather nice though and I think that’s always a plus.
I want to take a minute to talk about the scent because I always go over the way things smell. In the tub, this smells like pumpkin pie and it looks like it to me too, so in the tub, it makes me super hungry and feels like baking. On the face, it starts to smell like straight up cinnamon, almost overwhelmingly so, so if you are sensitive to scents I would be aware of that before you pick this one up because it is a strong one and sometimes bothers my nose.
Let’s get into what we are really here for, let’s talk about the mask itself. This mask claims to improve on surface pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dark spots, causes dermal circulation and cell turn over as well boost collagen. This kind of sounds like a lot out of one little mask, so let me tell you my thoughts on this.
I don’t have these particular problems that I feel like this mask really targets, so you’ll have to take this review with a little bit of a grain of salt. I haven’t noticed anything to do with the pigmentation of the course of using this mask, however, I feel like this does a fantastic job at gently exfoliating the skin. This always leaves my skin feel baby bottom smooth and I really love that about it, it leaves my skin looking a little bit more even and feeling amazing, so that is a big plus for me. I don’t think this does a ton on the moisturizing front, but a little bit of facial oil or moisturizer will solve that problem.
So, overall I do like this mask and I love that it makes my skin feel super soft, however, the scent it a lot and would almost make me not want to purchase this again, but the price is really great as well so I am on the fence. I think this gives me softer skin and really sheds off the dead skin on my face, I just don’t know if it’s my favorite mask that does that.
