I still remember when Sephora first opened in Canada – it was a really big deal for us guys! A makeup and skincare heaven where you could try on and play with products undisturbed by snooty department store counter ladies (that were the least bit helpful). Sephora landing in Canada was my first introduction to the brand Fresh. It was a unique brand, their packaging was intriguing and their products smelled oh so good! I came across the Fresh Rose Face Mask many years ago, eyed it, got a sample and went home excited to try it on. Of course I loved it then, but my student self couldn’t justify spending $75.00 on a face mask.
If you haven’t seen this face mask yet, go to Sephora and look at it, smell it! You will be sold by the smell, but just the texture of this mask is amazing! It has rose petals in it – yup, you heard me right, rose petals. It also contains rosewater, cucumber extract, aloe vera and green tea, which is an antioxidant. This mask claims to restore radiance, moisturize the skin, and tone the skin.
It has been a while since I have been a student and I still wasn’t able to spend $75.00 on a mask because well, it just didn’t seem right. I know myself, I will buy the mask and hardly use it, only to find it stashed away in my bathroom cupboard, long after its best before date.
Finally this summer, I couldn’t hold out any longer and decided I wanted to try this mask. After having used the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and loving it, I knew I had to give the Rose Face Mask a shot.
So good news for me and you as well, this mask comes in a smaller size now (I am not sure if it always did) for $30.00. This is great if you don’t want to invest in the mask and just want to try it out a few times before coughing up $75.00.
Of course I purchased the 30ml, $30.00 Rose Face Mask. And of course, I loved it!
So here’s the deal: This mask is not like other masks you have used, it doesn’t dry up, it isn’t messy, it doesn’t freeze your face and make you uncomfortable. You simply apply this on your skin, and leave it on for 10-20 minutes, and then wash it off. Easy Peasy. The smell alone will relax you to the point where you might just doze off! Ok but seriously, what did this do to my skin? It left my skin feeling super soft and smooth and just gave my skin a certain freshness after a long day! Better yet, the next day your skin actually looks brighter and more radiant! I use this mask at least once a week now, because it is so easy to apply, and requires minimal effort. Also, the little 30ml pot goes a long way, you honestly don’t need to apply too much of this! It isn’t a moisturizer! I sometimes use this in a combination with the Fresh Sugar Face Polish, which I will review in another post 🙂
This product is worth the hype – go get it!
