Sano Silk Mask
This one-of-a-kind facial skincare mask really does hit all the marks in what I look for when trying to determine whether a mask will be worth my money & time in the future! For starters, this great mask is composed of a unique blend of botanical extracts and other natural ingredients that will leave you skin looking and feeling absolutely fab! With my first application, I noticed immediate and notable improvement with radiance, smoothness, firmness, softness, and overall health of my skin! I was amazed at how ultra soft and smooth my face really was after just the first go at this mask :0 It is a bit pricier than many masks I've tried in the past- however I will say that there is a generous enough supply of the product in the pod featured above.
I found that by simply leaving the rest of the product I did not apply with my first usage, in the tray- and then placing in a clean plastic sealable bag until your next application...it will keep until you are ready to use again and that gives you 2 total uses per pod! Each mask comes with a Sano Applicator, allowing for easy & mess-free application so you can apply a thin, even layer with ease! Let the mask set on the skin for at least 10 mins., but as the instructions advise- do not leave the mask on longer than 20 mins., however you may leave it on for 10-15 mins for best results! Try and minimize facial movements while allowing the mask to dry as it will continue to tighten on the skin and if you do move it does break up the mask. This doesn't actually make a mess, but it doesn't allow the mask to its best potential.
Once you are ready and time is up, gently rinse off the mask with lukewarm to cool water- I even use a well-soaked clean wash cloth to do the trick; pat your face dry with a clean towel and you're good to go! The accompanying applicator wand is also of a decent quality and the product easily rinses out with warm water underneath a running faucet for a couple of mins; lay out to dry on a paper towel or hand towel/washcloth and it will be ready to go for your next application.
