Ooooh, a pumpkin mask. I’m a big fan of pumpkin (yes, I fully admit to being one of the people that stalks Starbucks every fall) I’m also a big fan of smooth skin, especially when I can get it fast. And smell yummy pumpkin while treating my skin.
So, yes, it does look like someone basically just mixed up some canned pumpkin and maybe some body lotion. It smells just like fresh (?) canned pumpkin, and when you smear it on to your face it looks like it too. There are a few slightly bigger chunks in it, but they’re soft and didn’t bother me. They just made me feel super pumpkin-ish.
This mask doesn’t dry on your skin like a clay mask, but it did tingle slightly for me. It wasn’t unpleasant, didn’t hurt, but there was definitely a little bit of a tingle. It rinsed off easily though I did wash my face afterwards to ensure there wasn’t any residual mask left on my skin.
This mask is basically a light chemical peel, the pumpkin has been blended with Glycolic Acid. The Pumpkin also contains enzymes and helps to lightly exfoliate the skin. Remember that chemical exfoliating does make your skin more susceptible to the sun, so be sure to wear your broad spectrum sunscreen!
After washing it off my skin is smoother and I feel a bit glowy. I used it a few times a week for about 3 weeks and over time it helped to clear out my pores. Smells yummy and works well (without any skin irritation?) Count me in!
