Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

From unexpected temper tantrums to stubborn dryness, our skin is more neurotic than Woody Allen in Annie Hall (or any movie ever). Thankfully, this hydrating face mask features some seriously soothing ingredients that keep problem complexions in line. With an ace combo of rich plant oils, essential fatty acids, and lipids, it tamps down signs of irritation and aging, while moisturizing thirsty skin.

How it Works

First up, plant- and vitamin-based antioxidants offer immediate relief from inflammation and redness (which, in addition to being uncomfortable, can worsen the signs of aging). Next, intense and hydrating emollients instantly restore radiance and banish signs of dryness.

How to Use

Twice a week, smooth a thick layer over clean, wet skin, let sit 10–20 minutes, and gently wipe off with lukewarm water. For an even more intensive treatment, wear this mask while you sleep as a soothing night cream.

This mask really kelps with the dryness left from my Retinol product. Plus, it does not make my acne prone skin break out.

Good option for dry and sensitive skin

My skin breaks out easily so I struggle to find a good moisturizer of any kind that doesn't make me worse off than I started (breakouts, patchiness). I was hesitant to get a moisturizing mask and decided on this on a total whim because it had free shipping here that month. Magically it worked. I use it once or twice a week and leave it on all night. Doesn't muss my pillow (it acts very much like a normal moisturizer in how it absorbs into your skin) and gives me much softer skin.

Wonderfully hydrating!

I have really dry skin, and whenever I have used this mask, it soothes my skin and keeps it well moisturized for days afterwards. I like that the ingredients aren't scary, too.

The mask has no scent, which is nice for sensitive skin, and it goes on skin smoothly. There is a lot of the product in each tube, which means you should get several uses out of the purchase.

The reason I rated this 4 instead of 5 stars was because it makes my skin feel a little itchy about 10 minutes after I put it on, but once I wash it off there is no noticeable irritation.

Very Moisturizing!

I have acne and oily skin, but treating it can dry out my skin. I like to use this moisture mask overnight whenever my skin is starting to feel dry and flaky. It does not cause me to break out anymore than I already do.

I ordered this for my mom on her birthday and she loved it as well! She has very dry skin and uses it as a daily moisturizer.

Great for dry skin

I like a lot of Paula's Choice products. I read her reviews, and she does do her research, and her products reflect that. This one has worked well for me. I leave it on overnight and my skin feels nice and soft in the morning. Recommended.
