My skin is feeling a tad dry and sensitive today, not too bad. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
The set contains:
4 x 1.25 oz/ 37 mL liquid
4 x 0.19 oz/ 37 mL powder
The bottles are tightly sealed with taped over the screw tops. The powder came in sachets. Pouring both in a mixing bowl was hassle-free. Best of all, they were scentless.
It took me about a minute of constant stirring to get it to a mousse consistency with a pretty salmon shade.
Application was also easy peasy with the spatula provided. It was highly spreadable, allowing me to get an even layer before it dried up. There was a cooling sensation the moment it touched my skin, which felt very nice and soothing on my slightly irritated skin.
I used up all the mixture and was able to get a medium thick layer on my entire face. I had this on for 20 mins, it felt slightly damp to the touch on the outside and not stretchy at all on the inside. But I decided to end the session as the instructions called for 15-20 min wait time.
It was pretty challenging to take the mask off in one piece. Some parts were still damp and felt like cake icing. Other parts were crumbly I did my best to assemble the pieces as I remove them.
After spending way too much time in the bathroom removing the larger pieces, I’m left with these smaller and drier pieces that were clinging onto my skin for their dear lives. The instructions called for splashing the face with lukewarm water to remove any residue, but to minimize dryness, I used a toner-soaked cotton instead.
My skin felt moderately hydrated with a silky look. Skin texture looked very smooth and poreless! Redness subsided a little at first and eventually disappeared as the day went by, leaving me with an even-toned skin. There were no brightening effects observed. I did follow up with a moisturizer to seal everything in.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Aside from the hassle of removing and the price tag, I really like this mask! I’m going to save this for a special occasion! Check out more Erno Laszlo reviews here.
