Warning: awesome purple mask face pic coming up!
Today I tried the Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment in Lavender Citrus. My Grandmother gifted this to me because it came in a set that she purchased (if you wonder where I get my love of lux, look no further) and she is not a mask fan. Score! Thanks, Gogo!
Just like my Apricot Josie mask that is a bright orange, this matches the container too and is a sweeeet lavender color. You know I love a funny colored face mask.
This has a super thick consistency. Emphasis on the super and extra emphasis on the thick. Mud is pretty much the consistency to think of - purple, lavender smelling mud.
Wow - does this smell strong! If you do not like lavender, and a lot of it, you will not like this mask. As it is super thick, it takes forever to dry down, so the scent remains super strong the whole time. Personally, I love lavender, but it makes me super sleepy - look at my eyes, LOL! I put this on and just closed my eyes.
One thing I dislike about this mask is that it feels very tight as it dries down. I believe that is the norm for mud masks, but still an FYI that you will need to finish your post masking with a heavy moisturizer. I would emphasis that this is more detox than hydration on me, and I normally have dry to normal skin.
I am enjoying the Josie Maran masks I have tried so far, but for me, as I just said, they are tightening and slightly drying. Heads up for those with dry skin and those sensitive to fragrance!
