#EthicareRemedies Akmasq Pimple Care Complexion Mask

A face mask is a must have in my weekly skin care routine. Our skin goes through a lot of dust and pollution throughout the week. We do take care of our skin every day, but it deserves that extra time to be pampered.

Since, I have oily skin that is prone to acne, I tend to try face masks that can combat them. Today, I am going to review a face mask by Ethicare Remedies called Akmasq.

PACKAGING

The Akmasq Pimple Care Complexion Mask comes in a white tube packaging with a flip cap. On the back of the tube you can find the ingredients, directions for use, expiry date etc. The packaging is simple but convenient. I like this packaging as it’s very easy to carry around with you when you travel.

 

 

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCTThe product is a cream based mask, but with a very good consistency. It has a sort of dirty green color. The mask is very easy to apply and dries out super quickly. Unlike other masks, I did not face any irritation or tingling sensation. It actually made my skin feel very cool, that’s probably because it contains cucumber. It helped control oil secretion to good extent over the day.

The mask is filled with the goodness of many ingredients and I wasn’t really sure of whether this would actually live up to its claims. My skin did feel cool and refreshed after the first use of this face pack itself but I didn’t notice any other major changes other than the fact that it brightened my skin a bit.
