Claims to exfoliate the skin leaving a smooth and soft skin while at the same time give moisture to have a result of a bouncy, radiant skin.

Effectiveness and other Experiences:
- This cream mask really has a milky scent to it which I really find relaxing
- On the first night I tried this I did had a very itchy cheeks for the rest of the night and I had to control myself from scratching it. I was not too sure if I was having an allergic reaction to the product since the itchiness is just on my cheeks.
- Second time I tried this, same reaction! But I have to try it out again just to make sure.
- After a week of not using this, I tried it again but this time I saw positive results. I didn’t experience any itch and felt that my face was really soft and really look radiant.
- Every time I use this there is a “squeaky clean” feeling which is an indicator for me that this product could be drying so right after using this I really do balance it off with a hydrating toner and sheet mask.
Final thoughts and Tips:
- I personally think that this was just too strong for my face since it has AHA and BHA and maybe my cheeks were just in a sensitive state when I used this that’s why it had that reaction.
- I wouldn’t recommend this for those with really sensitive skin or if you really want to try it make sure to do a patch test.
- Nonetheless, this product does deliver it’s claim and if you want a radiant and smooth skin the next day this would be great just make sure you hydrate your skin properly after using this.
