Unusable, really.

I got a sample of this and it was dried up into a solid little stone. I tried to rehydrate it with water, but the packaging was so poor that any water I added to the container would evaporate as quickly as I added it. After seeing the price for a full size and the good reviews, I decided it was worth the effort to keep at it, so I transferred it to an airtight container to rehydrate it. It eventually got to a consistency that I could use, but when I applied it it burned my face and I had to rinse it off within about five minutes. It wasn't until the next day that the redness died down. This is honestly the first time I've reacted like this to any product! I normally have such tough skin. Needless to say I won't be spending the money on a full size.

Not bad, but not superior

I received a sample of this product with a purchase. It was a very generous sample, so I've used the masque three times now. I like the consistency - it's easy to spread on my face and not as thick as some other ones, so I don't notice that I have it on. A smaller amount does seem to go a long way. It does dry like you'd expect (like other masques) and it does come off easily. Afterwards, I felt like my face was clean and fresh, like I would expect and like other masques I own. The fragrance was gentle, and it didn't cause my sensitive skin any irritation, so that was great. I didn't dislike this masque, but if I did a blind side-by-side comparison with other masques that I own that are at a decidedly lower price point, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. In fact, some of my pharmacy masques from Paris that were very low-end made my face feel fresher. I'll continue to enjoy this sample, for sure, but I wouldn't purchase this product.

Big glop of putty

I received a sample of this in my Birchbox and to be honest, I did not get to it right away. It was sitting for a few weeks, until I could find the time to treat myself to a very expensive mask. Whoa! It was the consistency of putty - I kid you not. I would hate to spend $125 on it and then it doesn't stay fresh. It was hard to spread on the face and it turned my face bright red. I will be happy sticking to much lower end masks that make me feel happy on my face and in my wallet:)

too dry

I love masks. When I received this sample I was very excited; however, it was very hard to get the mask out and it was too dry so I couldn't spread it over my face...Wish it was more creamy.

Dried up

I got this as a mystery sample with a $35 purchase and when I opened it, it was all shriveled up and dry. That's really disappointing. It came with zero instructions so I had to look it up on here to find out what it was supposed to even be.

Not great
Sampled

At first this made my skin sting. I continued to use and the consistency of the product seemed to change over time. It did make my skin softer, but like other masks better.

Don't move a muscle
Sampled

This product is fun. That might seem like a weird statement, but it is. It's a nice treat to your face but you'll have to prepare yourself to not move a muscle once it sets. There is w nice cool feeling throughout that soothes, followed by a very refreshed, renewed and dehydrated face after!

Not My Favorite
Sampled

I found the mask was too dry right from the start. It would crumble as I tried to scoop it out. Not a fan of this mask.

AWESOME!
Sampled

This was actually the very best face mask I have ever used. It went on so smooth. It was easy to spread so I got great coverage! When I washed it off my skin did not only feel great but it actually looked great! I saw an immediate difference. The ONLY problem I have is that the cost seems prohibitive for me to buy it :-(

Awesome luxury product
Sampled

I don't usually spend money on face masks for myself, so when a good one arrives in my Birchbox it's always nice. This one leaves my skin feeling really plump and soft, and is great for indulging in a little pampering. Sample size is very generous; I've used it multiple times and will probably continue to reach for it until it's all gone. May or may not repurchase, only because I don't usually buy these on my own and prefer to keep trying new ones.
