I love using a mask, I think it is a great way of jump starting your skin and making a big difference in a short time. This is the second mask from the brand Anubis that I have tried, the first was a peeling mask and this Effectivity Gold Mask is for brightening.
It contains Colloidal Gold, Caviar Extract, Gingko Biloba Extract, Kaolin Clay, Rice Extract, Pearl Powder and Hyaluronic Acid. It is a vivid gold colour, but feels gel like on the skin to brighten and nourish. You are to leave it on for 15-20 minutes. The mask has quite a strong fragrance to it, very floral and slightly heady so if you are sensitive to fragrance I would give this one a miss.
The mask does dry due to the clay but not uncomfortably so, your skin still feels flexible. Your face will look like you’ve gone crazy with the highlighter, I must say I have never known a mask to be this colour before!!
After use your skin is much brighter and with better clarity, skin is more even in tone and feels smooth. Considering there is clay in here you don’t get the tightness that you can experience using that ingredient. You may see golden sparkles after removal which I guess it was helps with brightening, I didn’t actually notice until under direct light.
Unfortunately I don’t have any idea on the price of this, when I went to the website it didn’t have the entire inci listing either which I do find frustrating. It is pleasant to use and I like the results but price is always a consideration for me so I can’t say I would repurchase. I have a 20ml size and although it sounds a small amount, I think you would get at least 5 treatments out of it. You don’t have to apply a thick amount to get a good result.
Till next time,
