When I first opened this stuff I thought it smelled horrible! It has a strong apple cider vinegar scent, (the 3rd main ingredient) which I'm not a fan of. I thought it would smell like honey. The consistency is very thin and will drip down your face if you use more than a thin layer, but that's all you need. If you accidently taste it and you aren't an apple cider vinegar fan.. you're in trouble :P All this said I was 99% sure I was going to return this product, but after leaving it on for 20-30 minutes while I was in the bath, I washed it off, and my skin felt SO SOFT! Softer than it has with any other mask I've ever used! This mask is also so gentle you could use it every day if you wanted. If you read the ingredients list everything is natural (and easy to pronounce). I feel like you could totally make this at home without having to hunt for too many ingredients, which I may do next time to save on cost. If you don't think you would be bothered by the smell of this product, I think it's worth giving it a shot!
