Jolisa's Experience: This mask is most useful for when skin is feeling sensitive and flaky. The mask goes on smoothly like a rose-infused jam and feels cool to the touch, making it super soothing for my currently inflamed and agitated skin. This mask also feels great after exfoliation and gives skin a nice primed surface for applying a serum or moisturizer. It smells really nice. I love the smell of rose. It is definitely gentle enough to use daily and I prefer to use it before bed. I don't use it daily though, For me, 3x week is plenty of use.
Jasmine's Experience: I use this mask after a long day outside in the polluted environment. This mask is very gentle with a cooling effect that works great on tired, dull skin. I see best results when I put some toner (I love using Mario Badescu or Christian LenartRose Water. Witch Hazel or ACV works too) on my face right before I apply this mask. It tightens my pores, reduces redness and makes my skin feel slightly softer and smoother. This isn't a miracle treatment but I do notice a difference (nothing dramatic). I agree with Jolisa, it's a good end of day mask to use right before applying your moisturizer before bed. I prefer to use this every other night. It's a good pick-me-up to use on dry skin before applying makeup.
