I am so hesitant to write a review on any product until I've really come to know the product. I think, quite often, when I see a review after only one or two uses that it's not really valid enough time to base a legitimate review on, but here I go, doing the same thing. But I had to talk about this product! Granted, I've only used two times, but here are my immediate results. I am a senior citizen, I have very dry, very delicate/sensitive skin. Most masks bother me, even when they're great for others. This one, first-off, is not like that. I put it on and left it on for an hour and 45 minutes. Zero sensitivity issues came as a result. Receiving my order and anxious to try, I put some of this in the palm of my hand and added some tap water (we have well water) and mixed it in the palm of my hand. It was a little chunky and it did flake a little but not like I expected. When it did flake, the flakes were very tiny, more like dust rather than chunks. The first thing I noticed and still am a little in awe about, is that I put the mask on and went about my business and all of a sudden, in a few minutes, I noticed the palm of my hand felt quite smooth like. I mentioned this to my husband and queried as to whether this might be happening on my face as well. When I got out of the shower, anxious to see if I could see anything at all, knowing it was too soon, I noticed that my skin did look a bit more clean-clear like than usual. My face felt kind of like when you've had a facial, which I've not had in years, but I do remember them. I was impressed enough to use the mask the next day, keeping it on for about 45 minutes. Life got in the way and I've not been able to use the mask for the past 3 days, and now I'm writing a review. I have only used it two times and it's all been in the past 5 days but my facial skin looks and feels remarkable considering the limited, short term use! I have very fair skin, but I'm not that fairy-tale fair-skinned, or milky white skinned from the books and movies...it's more like a sickly, pasty white complexion where every little blemish scars stay red and my face looks washed out, pasty, "maybe she's not that well" kind of a complexion. Even when I'm at my best. Today my husband says to me, "Wow! Look at your face! You look so good! Your skin looks so soft, and it just looks clear!" Note: My husband never notices things like that...or at least not until lately! I do notice it. I know the color of my skin has not changed but it seems that it has, and the clarity, the evenness of skin tone, the reduction of all those little red blips...it's all coming together and I've only used this stuff two times! And...it is gentle on my super sensitive face, to boot! This is one of those products that, literally, I can truly *get excited* about. I'm so happy to have found this. My biggest problem as far as I can tell is this. I've not tried any of the Shea Terra Masks, this is my first one. So, do I keep with this one forever? (yes!) so, how do I check out all the others now because if this one is as magical as it is, I want to use it forever but I want to know about all of the other masks too. I see a definite dent in my wallet, but I'm happy about it! HIGHLY recommended especially for sensitive, dry, uneven skin toned people like me.
