I have read about the is product and was intrigued so I went into my local Mecca Cosmetica store and enquired about it and to my surprise they had sold out and there was a waiting list for it.  Really want it now I put my name on the waiting list.

Almost a month later I received a phone call that the product had come in. Off I went to pick up the most coveted beauty product on the market of the moment.

I couldn't wait to try it. My first thought was that it smelled good, very earthy and sort of flowery with a hint of green tea smell.

I applied the mask gently as it is exfoliating and contains volcanic ash and I didn't want to scratch or irritate my skin as I do not know if my skin would react. After a couple of minutes my skin started to feel a tingly sensation. The tingling did last for almost 10 minutes and I was starting to worry whether my skin was having a reaction but persevered until my skin started to feel tight and the mask was drying. 

Once the 10 minutes was up, I washed it off with a wash cloth gently in circular motions. My cheeks were super red and very warm, they felt like I had heat packs on them. As for the rest of my face it was like WOW.

My skin felt smooth and looked lighter and brighter. Despite my cheeks feeling irritated it felt really soft.   My cheeks felt hot for a good hour and they were bright red for the rest of the day. 

The following day I could still see a positive difference in my skin, the redness on my cheeks had completely disappeared and settled. I would suggest not using this mask before you get ready to go out use it on a day you decide to stay home or just before bed.

This has not deterred me from using this product again but I do not think I will buy it next time.  I think the product may be too active for my cheeks so the next time I use I will avoid my cheeks altogether and only apply the mask to the rest of my face and neck.
