Pros:

Loads of delish ingredients.

Cons:

Not an efficient scrub.

More:

This year autumn did really give my skin a proper beating (that and my newfound love of going out twice a week for some proper dancing and alcohol). So each Friday I‘m all glowy skin from my sheet masks, 8 hours sleep and veggie diet. And then afterwork and GTs come my way and by Sunday I look 10 years older (but feel 10 years lighter cause I‘ve had so much fun). So I keep on restoring my skin to then break it down. And some would say this is stupid, and I should stay home more – but I can‘t I‘m having too much fun.

So buying this mask is just another measure to restore restore and restore my skin. First of all it‘s extremely sticky, you feel like you are wearing a layer of sugar literally (but two of its ingredients are raw sugar and honey so it makes sense). It takes ages to wash off cause it feels like you are wearing a coat of syrup. This mask contains loads of yummy ingredients (pure honey, rosehip oil, pomegranate seed powder and pumpkin extract) and promises to make your skin glowy and exfoliate it. I think it does give my skin a great glow, and after using it in the evening I can definitely still tell a difference next day.

About the exfoliation – well I believe in a proper scrub, like your skin should even itch a bit after – and I simply don‘t feel that with this mask. The grains are pretty large but the thick surgery texture of the mask makes it impossible to massage it in your face – cause you just get so sticky and uncomfortable.

Conclusion – it‘s an ok mask – but I won‘t repurchase it.

Sisley Express Flower Gel Mask Review

Pros:

The tube lasts for a looong time  – about a year when using it 3 times a week.

Cons:

No effect of “smothered features”.

More:

You all know that I love my masks, period. And part of why I love them is the ritual of application – the feeling of being pampered and taking good care of my skin. This mask kind of robs me of this feeling – since applying it feels like applying a gel like cream, which gets absorbed incredibly fast. I know that one can use this mask as a 3 minute cure (which works great) – but since it cost me a small fortune I prefer using it as an overnight remedy.

The effect: my skin feels very soft and hydrated afterwards, can‘t say that it‘s really glowing – but I think you need much for then just a mask to get that (tons of sleep, sunshine and water). Basically this is a good mask if you want a quick bomb of hydration and enjoy feeling like you are not wearing a mask – for exemple during long flights. The mask promises to “smoothen” your features – don‘t know if they promise to make all my wrinkles disappear – cause that just didn‘t happen.

Cons – obviously the price, and that you can get the same effect of hydration from much cheaper alternatives (see here and here).
