I am catching up by blogging now about some memorable masks that I have used in the past. I couldn't leave this one off the list!
In October/November...honestly...August, LOL, the pumpkin spice craze hits hard. We all know this. It used to be controlled - found in the forms of lattes, cookies, and the occasional yet festive seasonal candle. Thanks to capitalism and crazed, fall-loving Americans, the pumpkin spice trend has now infiltrated everything - including face masks.
And yes, I must admit, I bought this, and therefore, I am one of those crazed and fall-loving Americans.
Honestly, it is well known that pumpkin, as an edible fruit (veggie?), has a ton of benefits and is eaten regularly by pretty much everyone except Americans. Why? LOL, instead, we schmear it on our faces! I digress.
This mask is just too much! The "spice" part is overwhelming to the senses and you can almost feel the cinnamon penetrating the skin. It has extra essence, which is usually nice, but I ended up with a pumpkin spice flavored body, which was also overwhelming. The results of the mask were decent - my skin looked quite bright and any discoloration was gone. It was also a great base for the rest of my skincare.
I would not re-purchase this, but it was fun to try at the time! This was definitely a spontaneous purchase that I bought entirely for the pumpkin spice, so any benefits were really a plus, haha. I have most certainly tried other masks with just as much brightening power without the heavy duty fragrance! Next!
