Product description from SASA.com
SKINFOOD Rice Mask Wash Off contains various nutrients, including Vitamins and Minerals, which soothe irritated skin and whiten skin.
Rice extract is a gentle but effective whitening ingredient. It not only vitalizes skin, but also hydrates skin, for bright and whitened skin.
First thing I want to clarify is that this is not an exfoliater. The consistency is extremely creamy with some ground rice mixed it. The concentration of the rice ground is way to little to give you a good exfoliation. I think that the description and instructions are a bit deceiving so before you purchase, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. This mask is more moisturising than anything. I think that the formula softens the skin and lifts dead skin cells. The rice grounds did feel nice and helped to massage the dead cells away.
The smell is like generic drug store hair conditioners. o.O
Not the best pictures but you can see how creamy and fluffy the mask is.
The first few times I used this mask I was not impressed. Didn't feel like it did anything for me. The last time I used it I left it on while soaking in a bath for about 20 minutes and it made my face pretty soft. I also noticed that it brightened my face.
The instructions are no good for this product. It says 'After cleansing, gently massage over dry face. Avoid eye area. Rinse off.' Is this not a mask? I think this mask only works when I leave it on for at least 15 minutes.
I also didn't like the packaging. Though the product is in a sturdy tub that opens and tightens easily, I don't like the fact that I have to dip my fingers in there to get the product.
Overall this product isn't terrible but nothing to rave about. I was definitely expecting more and was under the impression that this was more like an exfoliating scrub which it's not.
Not impressed by this or the Kiwi mask that I also purchased from Skinfood. Now I'm a bit discouraged to try their other products. Anyone have recommendations?
Thanks for reading.
