This product claims to disolve dead skin cells and brighten the complexion without causing irritation as well as help with wrinkles, hydrate, and protect the skin. There are a TON of fruit extracts in there, but there are also pleanty of man made substances.

Once you open it you will find a pleasant scented cream. It is the consistancy of a light body butter. It really feels like you are puting lotion on your face – very different from the other masks I’ve used. I put it on and then in a few minutes hopped in the shower. It was on my face for probably 6 minutes before I washed it away (suggested use is 3-10 minutes).

As advertised I felt no irritation, no burning, no scratching. I also found my face feeling freshly moisturized for the rest of the day. I personally didn’t notice any brightening or complexion help – but it did feel nice. I will probably get 5 more masks out of that 0.5 oz pot.

The product sells for $62.00 for 3.7 oz (which is probably 35-40 masks) and it suggests using them once/week.

Will I buy it? Not likely – I really love my 2 Borghese Fango masks – and they cost far less/fluid oz. I’ll review those another time.

Ironically, I had just purchased an Alba Papaya Enzyme mask about a week before receiving this. I did a side by side test with both. They both made my skin feel softer, but the June Jacobs left a residue and it felt kind of nasty on my skin. I used a toner after, but it still just felt a little greasy.

Even though I didn't care for it I will find something else from that brand to try.

Didn't do much for my skin but left it a bit oily. I am going to give it another shot, but was expecting more of an exfoliation due to the enzymes

I love the fragrance and how rich and creamy it is but I didn't notice anything special to justify the price. I have enough to try a few more times so I'm undecided.

I can't decide about this mask. When I'm putting it on, it feels and smells so good that I get excited. Then it's so hard to wash OFF that it kind of grosses me out. Then I'm like, okay, so what did it do?

But as I was just mulling this over, I noticed how nice and tight and firm my skin felt after using it. If you guys have discovered the secret to youth, I'm in! My skin really does feel refreshed and soft after using, but washing it off is kind of like rubbing goo all over your face.

The cost is prohibitive for me so I wont be purchasing it. I do love the scent of this and it does make my face feel soft. I do like it a lot.

I thought the mask was pretty good, but not a "wow" product. I noticed a slight difference in my skin after using the mask, and I liked the texture. For the price, I don't think it is a great value.

Not sure if my skin had a slight reaction to it or not. I will try again. I do LOVE the smell of it!

Truly still on the fence about this one. I love how this smells, but I didn't like how oily it feels. Despite being oily, it didn't seem to cause any negative reactions with my skin. I also didn't notice any particular benefit to my skin so it's not likely I'll purchase this, but I'll try it a few more times and see what I think then. :)
