Hello,

Another product I MUST rave about: Osea's White Algae Mask. It's like Valmont renewing pack (which I have and love, but am not crazy about scent), but, in my opinion, BETTER! And without mineral oil and without the old lady scent.
I used PSF's Pumpkin Peel and then put this on as a replenishing mask, and it made my skin glowing, smooth, and remoisturized (my poor skin in Los Angeles is parched!)

I am also using their cleansing cream now, which has supplanted my green tea cleanser from PSF, and I have to say it's excellent, too--cleans much more deeply that PSF's cleanser but leaves my skin soft as, well, a baby's bottom.

I am so excited about these new products and, since I have a swanky job for the summer, I can actually afford them now!
Now, if only they could make a sunscreen...

best,
avalange

I have to admit, I found it drying, surprisingly. It feels lovely on, and it does seem to be soothing, but when I rinse it off, I need to moisturize right away.

I was a little disappointed with this mask too. I seem to remember Avalange saying that the formula was changed and it's not quite as effective as the original one she used?

It's still a 'nice' mask but I also didn't find it hydrating enough, but I still use the other Osea masks.

This mask is absolutely fabulous, but I think it's actually not for dry skin since it's not very moisturising. My oily skin is hydrated and bright after use.

Ugh, I hated this mask! Thank goodness I only used a sample. The chilly fall weather has made my skin a bit dry recently, so I thought I'd give my sample of this a go and give my skin a little moisture boost---- big mistake! It's like your average clay mask, which is to say that it's the opposite of hydrating. Now my skin feels tighter and drier than ever!!! It's a shock since the other two Osea products I use (Ocean lotion and Eyes + Lips) are seriously HG products for me. Oh well. The search for a cold weather hydrating mask continues!! My beloved BWC hydrating mask was apparently discontinued, so next I'm going to try Arcona's wine mask. Any other recs will be welcomed, though!

Caudalie Moisture Mask is good and you can also leave it on if you are ultra dry like me...
