Pocket-Sized Pretty is a series of posts dedicated to samples. Whether is was a deluxe sample or a regular sample packet, this is where you will find my first impressions of products. Posts will be brief and the goal is to let you know which products I am willing to commit to long-term by purchasing the full-sized version.
I got a sample of the mask from Sephora when I bought the Clear Complexion Kit, of which this item is not a part. This light blue cream is sparingly laced with granules for a slightly exfoliating effect. Instructions were to apply, let sit for 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly. There was a light, barely detectable scent. As the mask dried on my face, I felt some stinging. When it was time to rinse, the mask appeared less opaque. When mixed with water, the exfoliating properties returned for a gentle scrub. The full-sized version is $30.
Final Thoughts: In this case, the stinging means it’s working and that works for me. I’d commit to this fully.
