Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask

Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask ($65 ; is an energy-boosting, radiation mask that claims to perk up you complexion, leaving it fresh and glowing. Its something you leave on for about 3-5 minutes and wash off, following up with any serum/moisturizer. It comes packaged in a pump tube - I'm not a fan of this packaging, there's quite a bit of product waste and the mask always foams up on the sides of the pump. But I guess this is the best that can be done as far as masks like these go *Press Sample

"The Instant Revitalizing Mask is the ideal coach for the skin: it delivers the nutrients necessary for hydration and regeneration while teaching it to breathe, stock up on energy, and optimize its oxygen resources in rarefied conditions. It leaves skin amazingly revitalized, healthy, and glowing"

I only needed a tiny amount of this mask - just pump a little straight out of the tube and apply a super thin layer, leaving out sensitive areas like under the eyes and around the lips. The first time I used this mask, I let it sit for about 7 minutes and it left parts of my face quite red. I do have pretty sensitive skin and if you, like me, have skin that reacts quickly, do not leave it for more than 3-4 minutes. Even when I did leave it on for about 3-4 minutes, there was a teeny bit of redness around my cheeks, but it went away within a couple of minutes. As for the mask itself, its like a quick fix for dull complexion that brightens and smoothes skin out. My pores looked a bit smaller and my face felt very refreshed - if you have dry skin though, a moisturizer/serum is definitely needed. The mask produces small bubbles and fizzes up a bit on contact with skin - there was a light tingling sensation that went off as soon as I washed it off with cold water. Overall, its a nice mask that works really fast to give a radiance boost, but if you have sensitive skin, use with caution and do not let it sit for more than 3-4 minutes.
