Feeling on Skin
Directions said to:
Use once or twice a week as needed. Apply liberally to clean, dry skin with dampened sponge. Leave on 1-5 minutes, as tolerated (a tingling sensation or redness is normal). Rinse with warm water.
I left it on for 4 mins before washing it off. I guess I should have started with 1 minute. My face did not turn red, but there was a burning sensation that was quite uncomfortable. My face had the stinging/burning sensation for around 20 mins on my cheeks, nose and the area around my lips.
When I just applied, the area around my mouth already started feeling warm. I didn’t take much notice as the rest of my face felt okay. However, once my cheeks started to burn, it was a little to late. It takes some time to wash the product off the face. I guess the mask stayed on my face for 5 mins including the time taken to wash and probably a little longer if I include the time taken to apply.
The brightening effect is not as good as I expected. Squinting my eyes due to the stingness sensation >.<
And, according the the skin analyser, the smoothness of skin was still the same as before…
For the first application, I recommend to just leave on for 1 minute. People with sensitive skin should probably not try this, or do a patch test first. In any case, I definitely prefer their Facial Radiance Pads. It is much more gentle and has fast visible effect.
