I was so excited to receive the Michael Todd True Organics Pumpkin Mask in my August Ipsy Glam Bag because I haven’t used a mask that I haven’t cooked up myself in my kitchen in a long time. So yes, very excited.
This is a rather generous sample of 1 fl oz. I expect it to last me a while.
The Pumpkin mask is an exfoliating mask with a 5% Glycolic Acid and other enzymes.
I exfoliate often and I get peels and microdermabrasions. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to feel the telltale burn/tingle of the glycolic acid doing it’s job when I applied it.
The color and smell, I can live without. It’s orange and pumpkin, and it sort of reminds me of baby food. If you get down with Gerbers, you will probably dig this smell a lot more than I did. On the upside, the smell fades quickly.
This doesn’t dry cracked or uncomfortable, and it’s easy to forget you have it on your face. Also, the tingling fades away after a minute or so, and there is no discomfort.
I love that this is organic! We hate putting a lot of chemicals on our faces, and are slowly shifting to a more natural beauty regiment.
Does it exfoliate? Yes, but you need to do it a few times especially if your skin is used to harsher chemicals. I think this is a really nice compliment to my existing exfoliation/peeling routine that I have going on. It’s not hard to over do it on this stuff, and this is mild enough to use while I’m taking a break from my harsher acids.
Side note – the highest % of a glycolic acid product I have is 20%.
From Michael Todd:
This mask smells so much like fresh pumpkin you will think it’s Thanksgiving. And exfoliant lovers will give Thanks! That tingle is the pumpkin enzyme combining with glycolic acid to go to town on your skin’s flaws dissolving impurities like dead skin and clogged pores. Adds brightness and radiance to the skin and significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after a single use.
If you thought that masks were only for mature skin types…think again! The key to clearer skin is to unclog pores, reduce bacteria and nourish, tone and heal on and below the skin’s surface. Today’s masks from MICHAEL TODDtrue organics do all that transforming dull, lackluster skin into clearer irresistible complexions.
