…only without the wheel and Patrick Swayze behind me. That’s what it was like opening up my new jar of Raspberry N Honey Facial Mask from Zosimos Botanicals.
I was lucky enough to win this mask from a giveaway over at Sparkle*Shelf, and boy, am I glad all that clicking paid off. I gotta admit, I was nervous about this because I have a horrible aversion to Raspberry. I mean, the smell just makes me…well, not very happy. So, you know I was wanting to try this, if I was willing to gamble that this was going to be heavily Raspberry scented. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it wasn’t fragrancy (yeah, that word works here) – it smelled like really good clay.
I did not have a brush to apply this, as suggested, but I managed to smear it all over my face very easily. I lazed around watching the Olympics Closing Ceremony for a bit, while the mask dried. It did not dry too hard that it hurt (my face can be sensitive to things somtimes). I could feel it tightening up as it dried, but not uncomfortably. After 10min I used a damp cloth to clean the mask off, and it came off so easily. There was no scrubbing or redness. Just a nice smooth face, that I patted dry. After it dried, I noticed that my face was not red or overly tight. That was such a treat. The pores on my nose seemed noticeably smaller, too.
My face is fairly normal, not overly oily, so I didn’t really a lot of results from this mask. But, I must say that I liked the fact that with all of the natural oils and honey, my face felt moisturized after a drying mask. Quite a feat.
I must also mention that my jar came to me very quickly and in a very neat little drawstring bag and a nice handwritten note. I like those kind of personal touches in customer service. For that alone I would recommend anyone looking to try a more natural approach to skincare. However, I can happily add the Raspberry N Honey Face mask to that recommendation, too.
