Review: Andalou Naturals, Glycolic Mask, Pumpkin and Honey


Hello everyone,

Being a huge skin care fan, today I want to share with you a face mask that I have been using in over a month and I totally would recommend. This is the Andalou Naturals Pumpkin and Honey mask. I discovered this brand on my quest to finding organic skin care that would even out my skin tone and would not irritate my skin, as I have dealt with some cystic acne in the past.

My experience:

I find that this mask delivers in every way! From the sturdy glass packaging, to the actual effect of the mask. First when I opened the jar, I was  positively surprised of the texture and scent, very natural! As if you have just mashed some pumpkin puree and mixed with cinnamon. The smell is in no way artificial. The mask itself feels very smooth and applied easily in a thin layer. In a minute or so I feel a slight tingling sensation, it is not irritating and it does not make my skin red during or after application.

According to the directions, you should rinse the mask after 10 minutes of use, I however have left it on for 30 mins or longer and have got no dryness or irritation.
After use my skin is very smooth and soft and it stays that way also on the next morning. I use this mask along with several other masks regularly and can say that it works every time.
