My Thoughts & Experience
Packaged in an opaque plastic black tub. Easy to travel with if your hotel has a bar fridge 😉
On Application, its cooling (obviously because it needs to be stored in a fridge) and you’d get an instant hit of rose smell to your senses.
In terms of Smell, strong rose scent. To my nose it almost smells like synthetic rose. The smell lingers on skin even after washing. Some days the smell was tad too strong and was nauseating.
Texture like any other clay mask although thicker consistency, but spreads smoothly and evenly quite effortlessly. Couple of splashes of lukewarm water and gently massage away.
Result, my skin appears calm, but drier. The calamine powder seems to leave a residue on skin and needs to wiped off with warm wash cloth.
In terms of value for Money, I think it is reasonably priced at $12.95 for 2.1oz (in store). Would I repurchase this mask? No, I think Lush has better masks to offer which are not as strongly scented, don’t leave a residue and leave skin hydrated and supple.
