Intense Hydration and calming effect I can see
I am on my second jar of this product & I really enjoy using it. The consistency is kind of like soft caramel (like the kind in a Milky Way) it does not feel sticky in a sugary sense, but it is dense and creamy which means you need to work the product onto your skin. I really enjoy the warming sensation that you get when you spread and rub the mask into your skin (it also turns whiteish as you are doing this). I leave it on for about 10 minutes and then either rinse it off with warm water or a damp washcloth (just using water it takes some work to get it off - I usually do that in the shower, I use the washcloth method if I am taking it off at the sink). Immediately after using the mask my skin feels noticeably softer and smoother and I do see a temporary reduction in my surface redness (nothing topical will take it away permanently). Overall I enjoy the sensation of using the product and the results that provides. To me it is worth the higher price due to the uniqueness of the formula and feel as well as the results it provides.
I wanted to try this a few times before I left a review, I'll be honest the first time I tried it I wasn't too sure about it, I didnt really feel like I noticed a difference at first but I started a new face wash that was horrible on my skin, I usually have normal to dry, like maybe a dry patch here and there but after that face wash my cheeks were soooo bad like my skin never felt like that before. I stopped using it and decided to give this mask another shot and it healed all the dryness in one go! I was shocked and now I'll never not use it again lol I could do without the warning sensation but it isnt enough to make me not use it anymore lol I love this stuff and I definitely recommend to dry skin beauties, idk if it would be okay on sensitive skin though, definitely test out a small patch first if you have sensitive skin.
Unlike Anything I've Ever Used Before
This mask is unlike anything I've ever tried before. Have you ever tried a mask that WARMED UP when you put it on your face? Nope. You haven't if you haven't used this! It smells great, I love the texture (kinda wanna eat it because it is like honey except more washable) and it leaves your face feeling so soft and just overall feeling better. It does hydrate too, but not deeply. If you have dry, sensitive skin you may want to do a patch test. I can't get enough of this mask.
Warming, calming, and refreshing!
When I was massaging this product in for the recommended 1-2 minutes, I fell in love immediately after the warming sensation. I know I'm not the only one that likes to know that a mask is doing something good for me, and this one I could feel sinking into my skin and giving me that much needed hydration. I have been using peels, and overnight exfoliators so my skin is very dry, and even peeling in some spots. When I woke up this morning after doing this mask, my face looks plumper, no flaking, and I have an amazing glow. I'd recommend this to any skin type!
Magic Face Mask
Love love love this product. It leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and glowy. Love how it goes from a honey colour to white and warms up. I will admit that I don't like the warming feeling (it's an anxiety thing) but it's not the worse. It rinses off so easily and smells beautiful. Packaging is gorgeous too. Will be purchasing again
I have been having HORRIBLE hormonal /cystic acne issues lately. So much so, that I've made an appointment with a dermatologist next month. I've inherited this lovely skin condition I've suffered with my entire life called "Keratosis Pelaris" on top of that. They're tiny red bumps on the backs of my arms and on my face - so it looks like red, ruddy rough patches on my cheeks and arms. The only thing I've found that diminishes their appearance (somewhat) is tanning.
Since I dont want to mess up my skin with tanning anymore, I'm back to the drawing board. I digress, I needed a new face cleanser, and since I really enjoy their face cleansing balm and a sample of Farmacy honey salve I recieved from Beautylish I decided to pick up their honey bee cleanser in Sephora ....and serendipitously I recieved a sample of this honey mask from The Sephora girl. I think I got it last Sunday- so almost a week ago. After cleaning my face with the cleanser- I decided, what the hell, might as well try the mask since my face is such a wreck right now.
OH MY GOD!!!!!!
This Honey mask is a miracle. That's all i can say. I want to cry and hug the founder in personal gratitude for what a radical change this honey potion has made on my poor, cystic acne hormonally inflamed, ruddy cheeked face in less than a WEEK.
After I dug into what was left of the remains of the tiny sephora sample for every last drop that I could use, I checked the price online, and my face fell in disappointment because I'm flat broke right now. I could NOT wait another week for payday, or wait over the weekend to recieve the $38 size in the mail (sorry Beautylish)
This mask is *THAT* good. The only size my local Sephora has in store is the largest jar for $56+ tax. I've been using this twice a day btw so that's why I used up the sample so quickly.
Like a damn lunatic, or a junkie scraping up money for a fix 😂 I scraped up the change from my change drawer, returned a couple of recent "meh" makeup purchases to Macys and I MADE IT HAPPEN. $$$
I hate returning stuff too, Just to get this honey miracle Mask!!!
I'm not sure that it treated my acne.
It definitely reduced the redness and inflammation tho. HOWEVER the red ruddy patches on my skin are disappearing. For the first time in my life, my cheeks feel smooth, my face feels more hydrated and plump. The warm tingling almost burning feeling made me wary at first, but after the 3rd or 4th application I dont even notice it anymore.
I am so in love with this product, that after going a whole day and a half without it, I eagerly unwrapped the packaging and put it on in the car for my drive home (at 9pm. ) I use this twice a day- Once in the morning once at night. If my face (or wallet) tells me to chill out a bit I'll reduce it to once a day, or once every other day. Yes, $56 is expensive. I live in Seattle so the climate really does a number on my skin. If anyone reading this suffers from what I'm suffering from-give this a shot.
It's worth skipping out on another eyeshadow palette, or ....like one lipstick from Tom Ford😂 or a few lattes for a couple of weeks.
Take whatever else you have sitting in your Beautylish cart and press "save for later" and get this if you feel squeamish about the price. Ask for a sample. Their official website also has great deals too.
I cannot wait to be able to afford to add other products into my routine.
One thing is for sure- I cant ever imagine not having this honey potion mask on my vanity. The packaging is super cute bonus too. Farmacy could sell this in a plastic Garbage bag and I'd still buy it. I'm going to use it on the backs of my arms just to see what happens and I'll update my review. I cant think of enough glowing praises to write down. I definitely see why their "Best Of" limited edition packages with multiple products are always sold out. 11/10 for me.
This mask is so amazing. My skin has changed recently from normal-dry to just, excessively dry. After using this mask once, my skin felt bouncy, full, and some of my small zits and black heads had diminished. I'm SO impressed by this mask and it is money well spent. Also, the packaging is so cute? I kept the boxes they came in and I display my products on top of each box. I love how the inside of the packaging explains about the company and what they're about, I'm just a real nerd for that stuff. Great product, great company! Love it!
Fantastic, thick, hyper moiturizing
INCREDIBLE. You really cannot compare it to anything out there. It gets hot when you rub it in and gets white. NOTE: DO NOT USE ON BROKEN SKIN. It will sting. It smells like honey! It IS honey. I just love this stuff. A little goes a long long LONG way!!! I"m not sure I will ever use it all!!
Godsend for oily/acne-prone, but dehydrated skin
This product is AMAZING for my oily skin, yet dehydrated skin. I accidentally left this on my face for, oh I don't know, 8 hours? It left my skin suuuuuuuper hydrated. This didn't break me out and didn't clog my pores. I attack my face with retinols, AHA's and BHA's, and a derma roller, so this is a great nourishing treat for my skin. I wish they made this for my entire body!
