Pearls are considered an epitome of beauty. Coco Chanel eminently quoted, “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” Silk, on the other hand, symbolizes indulgence and luxury. And when I find a product, which incorporates both of these exotic beauties, how could I not treat myself to it!! So, here is a review on Michael Todd True Organics Pearl and Silk Facial Mask.
The mask comes in a dark purple colored bottle with a lavender hued pump dispenser. The bottle has MTTO’s signature colors. The mask is extremely lightweight with a very silky texture. The mask is translucent and has a sheen to it as it contains mica and pearl powder. It has a very mild floral fragrance, which fades away in a minute.
$34 for 3.4 oz. (100 ml).
My Take on Michael Todd True Organics Pearl and Silk Facial Mask:
I use this mask on cleansed face. During application, it feels as if I have applied a watery lotion on my face. It is the gentlest mask that I have tried till date. For the initial few minutes, it does not even feel that I have a mask on. The mask is very easy to apply on the face. It dries very fast in almost 10 – 15 minutes. After drying, it does not harden up like the MTTO Kaolin Clay Mask.
The mask is very easy to rinse off. My face feels clean and fresh. After washing the mask, I did not find my skin to be very dry. The presence of hydrating ingredients, Organic Aloe Vera Juice and Vegetable Glycerin have been really helpful to my dry skin. I do apply face lotion, but my skin needs very minimal moisturization.
The mask contains hydrolyzed silk to provide softness and smoothness to the skin. The presence of pearl and amino acids are supposed to hydrate the skin and make skin brighter. Neither of these products appeared to have any “wow’” factor on my skin.
The mask also contains acai fruit pulp powder to provide anti-oxidant benefit to the skin. However, I did not observe any firmness on my skin.
I have been currently using this mask twice a week. The mask also claims to exfoliate. I did not find it to be a very effective exfoliator. This mask is beneficial for normal to dry, mature and sensitive skin.
The mask also contains essential oils, but it does not specify which ones. So in case you are sensitive to certain oils, it would not be safe to use. This mask did fare better for me than the MTTO kaolin clay mask. Nevertheless, it proved to be more of a regular mask, which helps in mild pampering of my facial skin.
