I received a sample of this in the Ipsy Bag January 2017. It was a decent-sized sample and I got several uses out of it. This size tube, 5 oz, is available on the Purlisse website for $20. After my first use, I liked it enough to include it in Best of the Boxes January 2017.
My skin is normal with some shine in the summer. I have fine lines and dark spots. My skin is not terribly sensitive but I did get an occasional spot.

I always remove my makeup, cleanse my face, and apply my toner before using a mask. After completing those steps I applied the mask. The exfoliants are very fine and a bit gritty. But gritty in a good way.
This mask has a very mild floral scent. It is not overpowering and it does not linger. It applies smoothly and evenly with a light scrubbing sensation. It does burn when you put it on but it doesn’t last long and it’s not bad.
I left the mask on for about 10 or 15 minutes. The mask dries down fairly tight without making my face feel tight. I added water and massaged the mask before rinsing it to get some extra exfoliation. I left my skin feeling soft and smooth. And my pores really did look less noticeable.
It rinsed off cleanly and easily. It did not leave any residue. It also didn’t leave my face dry or tight. I left my skin feeling soft and smooth. And my pores really did look less noticeable. I liked this mask. it made my skin look noticeably better after using it. I may repurchase at some point. If I ever finish all the masks I have.
Have you tried this mask? Did you like it? Do you have any mask recommendations for me?
