These types of reviews are for skincare items and how they work (or not) for me. I don’t like to go into too much detail since skincare is so personal and subjective. I’m not a professional and am not responsible for any outcomes you have if you try this product.

How I used it
The first time was after applying my normal evening skincare routine minus the Rose Hip Seed oil. My face has been a little dry lately and I wanted to add in a bit more hydration to help. The texture is gel-like but not overly thick, similar to the belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask. It absorbed quickly but not completely, leaving a thin layer on top of my skin despite applying a very generous amount to my face. My skin was super soft the next morning and I didn’t notice any breakouts from it. The 2nd time I used it I applied a little less than I did the first time and had the same results as I did applying significantly more.
As long as my skin doesn’t get irritated by it, I will continue to use it sparingly when I need more hydration. I’ve been waking up to softer skin after using this mask the night before and I noticed my makeup applying more smoothly. The fragrance is a bit earthy and strong, and it lingered after application. If you’re sensitive to smells or don’t like earthy tones, you may not like this.
I would probably not repurchase it because of the smell. While I get the hydration I need at a lesser expensive price, the smell lingers a bit too long for my liking. You can buy this mask from Milani, Ulta, Target, and Amazon.
