An absolute MUST HAVE for sensitive skin
This mask is not only super hydrating and smoothing but also does a wonderful job of soothing irritation. I use this at least twice a week for general hydration support, or as needed to calm irritation from other products. The product is free of synthetic fragrances, and it has a light herbal smell. Texture-wise, it is sticky and a bit gritty (from the natural mugwort contained within), but I find the benefits far outweigh this. A word of caution: if you're allergic to birch pollen, do NOT use this mask, as mugwort is in the same family. When in doubt, patch test first on the inner forearm.

The texture of this mask is SO NICE! I love to spread it with the little spatula. I find it to have a strong scent, but nothing unbearable.

In terms of reaction, I do feel a slight tingling at the end of the 10 minutes I leave it for, but it doesn't make my irritation worse. I just don't see it getting better either. For me, no drastic results/improvements.
The plus is that it does leave the skin hydrated and feeling fresh and doesn't break me out.
