Eminence Garlic & Tomato Masque Review
This is what I consider to be an 'active' mask, in that I can feel it doing things to my skin. It does have a distinct odor which some may find unpleasant, but I personally like it. It contains odorless garlic which is an anti-inflammatory/anti-bacterial that helps to get oxygen to the skin, sweet yellow clover which is a stimulant and anti-inflammatory, tomato puree and juice for anti-aging antioxidants, honey to moisturize and nourish, and St. John's wort as a anti-irritant to help sooth and calm skin.
Using the enclosed applicator, I use about a quarter's worth mixed with a few drops of water. Instructions say to leave on for 5-10 minutes, but I've left it on for up to 30 minute with no issues. It dries down to a tight, matte texture and I use a warm, damp washcloth to help rinse off. This masque can also be used as an overnight spot treatment, which I'll be doing on my cheek.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love Eminence Organics products. They are quality - but you pay for it. This masque retails for $48 and can be purchased at Amazon, dermstore, and other online retailers. I got mine at a spa.
Disclosure: I purchased this and have no affiliation with any of the companies mentioned.
