I adore this mask! I use retinol products every night and some harsh AHAs and BHAs. Once a week I will use a cream sheet mask with tomato extract, then a tomato serum and then seal those in with this baby! At first I only liked it. But once I used it a few times I realized I 2wasn't using enough product each time. I will spread it evenly over my face, a decent coating and then wait a few minutes to absorb a little. Once it has sunk into my skin a little I take the excess which is now much thicker and balmier, and massage and than tap it in to my face to completely absorb. It smells like a good product... unnecessary fragrances can be really bad for your skin without you even realizing. In the morning I will wash my face and it is soooo smooth, supple, healthy, radiant and restored from all of the chemical exfoliation I have done all week. Redness is an issue for me and this really seems to help calm it. Give this a chance. You wont hate it, I promise you that.
