Predictably, this mask smells like roses. So if you love roses as much as I do, then you'll definitely want to slather it on in spades! Since the mask has a gel consistency, the texture is a bit sticky upon application -- but after a minute or two, the stickiness retreats. I actually sometimes prefer gel masks to cream ones, especially in hotter climates -- they just feel so cooling and they penetrate my skin more deeply than the creams can.
Interestingly, while the mask is bright pink inside the tub, it becomes clear once it's removed! So you could actually walk around outside with this mask on and no one would be any the wiser -- it applies clear, so you'll just look like you have an extremely dewy complexion for about 10 minutes before you rinse it off.

This mask is formulated with cutting-edge plant biotechnology, isolating and replicating the perfect rose stem cells for maximum antiaging and repair. A combination of five rose stem cells and four rose extracts stimulate cell turnover and produce younger-looking skin. You'll find the following four rose extracts in this mask:
Desert Rose: Supports natural surface cell regeneration and skin barrier and restores suppleness
Damask Rose: Tightens pores, purifies and smooths the skin
Rose Commiphora: Contains anti-redness properties
Pale Rose: Rebuilds the moisture barrier and helps the appearance of newer, softer skin
|As you can see, once the mask is removed from the tub it takes on a clear hue.|
My skin is extremely sensitive and I'm prone to breakouts when I try new products. Well, not so with this glorious mask! I've experienced nothing but glowing, youthful-looking skin from the moment I first started using it. The best part? You only need to apply this for 10 minutes and you're on the way to moisturized, nourished, rejuvenated, youthful-looking skin. I've been using it 1-2 times a week to try and restore hydration, but you definitely don't need it more than that.
The fact that this mask works to keep me looking young definitely puts it in my holy grail arsenal. Keeping my skin moisturized and soft is just a bonus!
