My Experience with Sephora Argan Hand Mask:
The hand mask comes in an orange sachet. The package is sleek and is easy to carry in a bag for a quick fix. The directions to use and other information are available on the back of the sachet. After I saw Rati’s Instagram story on Sephora Lip Masks, I went to Sephora to pick up the same but ended up buying different masks.
The hand masks are actually hand gloves. They are pretty big and would fit hands of any size. The hand gloves are white in colour and they have a strip that can be used to adjust the gloves around the wrists. You can rip out the hand mask and insert your hands in them. I like this mechanism as it is hygienic and I do not have to rinse off or stay still. I can put these masks on and still continue to work/do the activities, while the mask is doing its magic. The masks have a very pleasant smell. The gloves are made of plastic and are similar to the ones available in the market but, the quality of Sephora’s hand masks is way too superior.
The gloves have to be worn and left for 15 minutes, but I leave it for much longer. When I remove the masks, there is a lot of extra product left on my hands and I massage it gently onto my hands. The product gets absorbed faster. The hand mask does soften the hands and also the cuticles. It moisturizes the hands but the results do not last longer. The hands feel soft and smooth at the start, but then the hands get back to the way they were. The mask works more like a hand cream that moisturizes the hands when needed.
The mask is non-messy and very easy to use. It also softens dryness of the skin. The nails get nourished in the process and when I remove the mask, I notice that there is a subtle radiance to the skin and the nails are well nourished. I have used 2 masks till now, and I have noticed that my nails look much healthier and equally moisturized. The mask tones the skin, but I have not noticed any anti-aging effect yet. When the gloves are put on, the liquid product settles near the fingers and you need to rub the outer layer to equally distribute the mask. The mask yields only temporary results. A hand cream is much cheaper and effective than this mask. The product is not a must buy, but it is worth a try when you need to moisturize your hands urgently or for special occasions.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Sephora Argan Hand Mask?
