$10.99USD(~£7) from Cosmetic-Love. I'll put a link here to direct you to the Skinfood mask. I hauled this here if you are interested in seeing what products I had also bought from there and if you would like me to review any of them first you can leave a comment :) although I probably will get round to all of them eventually.
- After washing, apply desired amount on to face, avoiding eye and mouth areas.

The brown product contains sugar granules. It looks a bit like a cake mixture because it has slight oil base. It works really well exfoliating the skin it's not that harsh either to the extent it is abrasive.
It's hard to describe the smell, because it smells a bit of everything. The smell is pretty strong. It's very strange because the first sniff I smelt Coca-Cola... The more I smell it, it became more of a lemon/citrus-like smell. I also thought it smelled like a washing powder. Now... it's a mystery how I can smell all these. I asked my mum for her account and she said the exact same thing so I can assure you I don't have phantosmia.
I've actually tried to make my own DIY sugar mask but those have a shorter life span and it does make a bit of a mess. There's something about making your own masks that makes me think it's less hygienic. To me this is much better that the homemade stuff.
I started using this when I was ill with the cold about a month ago now and I had extremely dry skin on my nose and my upper lip area. After using it the flakiness disappeared completely. I had baby's butt soft skin. It really helps to clear away dead skin cells. This is practically an amazing product especially the winter or cold months. I sometimes experience dry patches on my face I don't ever feel it anymore because I've been using this (2-3 times a week) and my intensive leave in mask every night.
I've been using it for 4-5 weeks and there is still a lot of product left. I think one tub will last me a long time. This product is pretty inexpensive for how well it works and just about the average price of any mask or face scrub.
When you use water to wash the residue the warm water actually melts the sugar.
- Acts as a good exfoliater - great at removing dead skin cells
- Leaves your skin soft
- One tub will last you a very long time
- Great for the winter months
- I felt a slight tingle on my face after using it, it's very mild however
- It contains parfum. This must mean it was used to make the product smell nice but I don't think it's necessary, infact it smells quite odd anyway with the waft of smells
