I have a thing for lemons. I really like the tart scent of a lemon. It’s a little fruity, a hint of sweetness, but for the most part it’s tart and shiny. I likey the tart part!
Jump ahead to hear about the Skin Food Lemon Pack Wash Off Mask.
Skin Food Lemon Pack Wash Off is a lemon based exfoliating mask which is rich in fruity acids and meant to remove impurities and dead skin. It’s a wash off mask type so you can massage a healthy amount onto your face, sit around in your PJ’s with it on, and proceed to wash it off after 15 minutes or more if you want.
The texture reminds me of a lemon meringue pile filling. It’s a dense jelly that smells beautifully like bright, sunny lemons. So lovely. It’s sticky and a bit on the heavy side but it washes clean away. It could prove a little too much for sensitive types due to the acidity of the lemons, even I experienced a tiny tingle on my face and a bit of redness after I washed off. It’s not grainy or sugary but almost like a peeling gel of sorts which gently exfoliates as you massage on and proceeds, I assume, to eat up dead skin with the fruity acids as it sits on your face. It tingles a little bit, nothing scary or bad, but sort of a slight sting. After I washed it off my face was flushed and a little red so do be aware as I mentioned above it could prove too much for sensitive types.
All in all after use my skin felt quite lovely. Smooth and dewy and my moisturizer seemed to absorb easier. It’s not my favorite mask pack from Skin Food but it’s a very nice one to have around when your skin needs a pick me up!
I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this pack as low as $9.99 on E-bay which isn’t too bad a deal. Sasa sometimes carries some of the Skin Food Mask Packs as well.
