Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Masque
I'm a big fan of masks of all kinds, clay, peel off, organic and now I really love this leave on Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Masque. I did think it was odd to leave a masque on, but the consistency of this product makes it feel more comfortable than it sounds. This clear gel applies and spread smoothly and evenly. While it is drying it feels a little tacky, but once it is completely dry the tackiness is gone. It leaves your skin feel extremely hydrated - as if you've been swimming and your skin just drank up a ton of water. I love how soft my skin feels from this masque. It doesn't really have a scent - which is a huge bonus!
Although I love the feel of this product, and the glorious hydration it creates, $52.00 is a bit too much for me to spend on this product. Yes, it is a fantastic product - but I think I can get a similar product at a much lower cost from a drugstore or Sephora/Ulta type store. I don't really have extremely dry skin, so that may be why I don't feel like I need it in my life, but if you battle dry skin - try to get a sample of this because I think it will really help out people that need that super hydrating benefit.
