Review: Clark's Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask

Hi guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing a product that I received in this month's Ipsy bag, the Clark's Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask. I always love using hydrating masks in the Winter after using a deep cleansing mask so my skin doesn't get too dry. I was really excited to try this out as the line claims to be organic. 

Here is some info on the product from the Clark's Botanicals website: 

This mask helps to revitalize environmentally stressed, dry complexions. With each use, skin is infused with hydration and begins to glow. Over time, the fine lines and creases become less visible.

Benefits of the mask:

- Instantly calms redness and softens skin with with Algae extract
- Soothes inflammation with Comfrey root extract  
- Delivers potent antioxidant properties with Japanese Green Tea
- Helps to balance stressed skin with Jasmine Absolute

This product is said to be for dry skin, aging skin and stressed skin. A full sized 1.7 ounce jar costs a whopping $72! The directions on the website say to smooth over a clean face, leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. You can also apply a very thin layer to leave on overnight. I'm not sure if there was a discrepancy with the packaging on mine, but the directions on the jar I have say to leave it on for 15-20 minutes, not 5-10. 

I left it on for close to 20 minutes, and wanted to rip my face off honestly, this burned so bad! I'm not sure what ingredient is in this that caused it, but it wasn't very fun. Once the 20 minutes was up, I couldn't wait to rinse this off my face, and while rinsing, my skin felt like I was pouring acid over it. My face was so red and swollen afterwards, so I must either be allergic to something in this, or my skin is just super sensitive. If you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend NOT using this at all! The price alone made me cringe, and I'll gladly keep buying the GlamGlow hydrating mask at $69 instead.  

Their other products do seem nice, and you can check them out here, but I would be wary about trying any others due to the nasty reactions I had.
