I am a sucker for a product that gets good press. So, when I saw that InStyle was talking about the Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Brightening Mask on Twitter, I thought I would try it out for myself. Twitter is a wealth of beauty information and I spend a significant amount of time finding out about new products to try out. I would suggest if you are not on Twitter, to give it a look and follow the beauty/fashion magazines. Personally, I try and Tweet my reviews on there too.
The Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Brightening Mask is a thin, wonderful smelling mask that reminds me of pumpkin bread batter. It doesn't really look all that appealing on the face but it does a good job of brightening and exfoliating the skin. This mask is fairly gentle, I might recommend it for sensitive skin types even, but do a patch test first. Only use if you can tolerate glycolic acid. You should feel a slight tingle to let you know that it is working. That is the glycolic acid. If you have sensitive skin and the tingle is too much, then discontinue use. Otherwise, this mask is a great fit for any skin type really, especially normal to combination skin. Acneic skin types could use this mask as long as you don't have any open lesions. The ingredients listed below are powerful anti-inflammatory agents and would helps to soothe, exfoliate and moisturize the skin without clogging the pores (hair follicles).
The mask contains fruit stem cells, Vitamin C, glycolic acid, manuka honey and organic pumpkin puree (rich in beta carotene which is a powerful antioxidant). It exfoliates the skin to gently clean dirt, impurities, and dry cells from the skin leaving the skin looking smoother, brighter and more even toned than before. The glycolic acid is the exfoliant of course. Manuka honey is a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Vitamin C in the mask brightens the skin and helps fight photo damage, promoting a more even skin tone than without use. This mask, and all of their products, include fruit stem cells, an antioxidant defense solution to protect the skin.
Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Brightening Mask also contains glycerin, a humectant, which helps to draw moisture to the skin. It contains apple and pineapple extracts, which act to exfoliate the skin. Sunflower, tamanu and meadowfoam seed oil help moisturize and act as anti-inflammatory ingredients. It does remind of pumpkin pie batter, I mentioned, because it contains clove, nutmeg and cinnamon powders. All of these act as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents too. Rooibos is an antioxidant as well and is prominent in the mask.
Apply evenly to clean, dry or damp skin. Leave for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Skin will be noticeably softer and smoother, especially if left on for at least 20 minutes. It should look brighter too.
Here is a photo of me wearing the mask. Notice that it is thin and slightly runny. But that is okay, as it works well.
