Face mask with cotton seed oil?? Sounds interesting, I too thought the same way, this particular face mask from Oriflame claims to contain the goodness of cottonseed oil and vitamin E. We all know how good vitamin E is for skin, but I had no clue about the benefits of cottonseed oil, so I researched a bit on the net and found that cottonseed oil is widely used for cooking because it is low in monosaturated fats, low in cholesterol. Another of Cottonseed Oil’s benefits is the high level of antioxidants

MY TAKE ON ORIFLAME ESSENTIALS COTTON FACE MASK:
This is one more of the face masks from Oriflame, which is in a thick creamy formula. Most of the face masks I have used from Oriflame come either in thick cream or in a gel form, which do not dry out within a specified time. They just sit on the face and if you rub them hard enough, they will get absorbed into the skin. I don’t know good or beneficial that is, but I would any day vote for face masks that dry out after 10 or 15 minutes. I got a total of 4 sachets and each sachet has more than enough face mask to cover the entire face and neck. The sachet has a thick cream which spreads evenly on to the face. It has got not much in the way of fragrance. After I applied the mask lavishly on to the face and neck, there was still some of it remaining in the sachet. Keeping it for 15 minutes, it didn’t dry out; I had to wash it away. Using it for the first time, I realized that it hydrated the skin and spaced out the dry areas. So, it would be an apt face mask for dry skin. After using out all the 4 sachets, I realized that this could be a winter face mask for me or a mask I can use right after a clean-up. Otherwise, I can do much without this face mask.
PROS OF ORIFLAME ESSENTIALS COTTON FACE MASK:
• Hydrating and moisturizing face mask apt for dry skin.
• Spaces out dry patches on the skin.
• Enough face mask in one sachet to cover the entire face and neck.
• Especially beneficial after a clean-up when skin feels stripped up of all moisture.
• Price, it is Rs. 59 for two sachets, so quite cheap.
CONS OF ORIFLAME ESSENTIALS COTTON FACE MASK:
• Comes in a thick creamy formula which even though spreads easily, is a con for me, because it does not dry out like other face masks within a specified time.
• Would benefit oily skin in winter months; in summer months, oily skin anyway does not need extra moisturization.
WILL I BUY THIS AGAIN: Yeah, maybe in the winters.
