If you are a regular reader here (I hope you are), you should know by now that I love face masks. In fact, I have tried a remarkable amount of face masks until now. I love how they nourish the skin, clean it in the case of clay masks and I love how my skin feels after I use a face mask.
Korres is a greek company that I have been following for years and I have tried many products from them. I bought this brightening mask cause firstly, I loved that a large number of the ingredients are natural, it has no parabens, mineral oil, silicones, propylene glycol or ethanolamines, and secondly, I wanted this product to do what it is claiming to do: brighten my skin. It is suitable for all skin types and also promises an instant brightening effect visible upon application.
I like the packaging a lot. The tube makes the product easier to use instead of a pot and I love that you don't stick your fingers into it. Just squeeze the tube and the required amount you will need will come out and ready to use.
This mask has a strange texture; it is thin and the colour is white (reminds me of yoghurt), applies nicely but it does not get fully absorbed. In fact, I noticed that only the tiniest amount was absorbed and the mask was just ''sitting'' there. I am glad that it was not uncomfortable to wear and did not dry my skin at all and I felt really nice when I had the mask on.
However, the results were strange to me. Whilst it gave my skin a glow and made it softer, it didn't give to my skin a great amount of moisture and the results didn't last for long. I mean, my skin was bright when I washed this product off but after a while, I felt that I haven't used this mask at all. Also, I felt that my skin was cleaner than usual, but still, I didn't want my skin to feel cleaner after using this, I wanted to feel brighter and stay like this. And it didn't.
This mask is ok. Good to use if you are going out and need a pick-me-up product or after a hangover, but I wouldn't use it in order to see any dramatic results. I believe that there are many great masks out there that do brighten skin and do a better job than this one. I wouldn't repurchase it cause I would love to try a different mask that will make my skin feel super!
