There should be another section in the "are you planning" drop down. I LOVE the smell of this mask, and I think it worked super well. However it is too expensive for me to buy it currently, or in the future when I know I can find masks that work well for cheaper. It is lovely, but not holy grail. And for $60, it had better be holy grail.

I liked that its a good size sample. I can probably get up to 5 masks from it. The texture was nice, as was the scent. It didn't wow me though. I didn't see a great improvement in my skin after using it. With a $62 price tag I highly doubt I would ever purchase the full size.

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.

I LOVE THIS!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This month's Birchbox has been my favorite yet, and this is by far my favorite item from it. I was so excited when I unscrewed the cap and smelled this masque--it smells delicious enough to eat--and I couldn't wait to use it. It left my skin really soft and smooth and moisturized, which was nice, and the whole time I had it on I got to enjoy the yummy scent. Way to go, Birchbox!

I never would have believed I'd consider purchasing a face mask for $62, but I find myself plotting ways to do so after using the sample - and my girlfriends who tried it are all trying to dream up a way, too! Huge hit.

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.
