I know, it’s not the Vichy packaging that we’re used to, but guess what? Vichy now has little packages of their masks, so that you can try them before you invest in a full jar. Personally, I like the little packages because they are so much easier to travel with and I have a whole box of them that I take with me whenever I go on vacation.
Ok, lets get into what this mask is. Truly, I really enjoyed using this mask. It’s got vitamin C and AHA’s in it, along with some very finely milled volcanic stone so you get some physical and chemical exfoliation. This is not for sensitive skin. It’s best for skin that is oily and congested and needs some clearing up!
You leave the mask on for 5 minutes, which is a major plus. I find that I rarely have time for the 20 minute masks, but I always have time for the 5 minute masks. You could even do this mask in the morning while you get ready for work. In fact, I might try that tomorrow morning.
So you leave it on for 5 minutes, and then rub it on your face so that the fine volcanic stone gives you a gentle scrub. You wash it off – I prefer to use a washcloth and wipe it off because I find that to be easier – and then you’re left with super smooth skin. And here’s a little tip: take the excess mask that’s left on your fingertips and rub it on the back of your hands. You’ll have nice smooth hands too.
Available in drugstores now or online. $7.95 for a pack of 2 masks, or $34.95 for the whole jar.
