Pie In The Face? You’ll Like It With Sanitas Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
It’s officially fall and all of the pumpkin farms near my house are ramping up their fall celebrations. Although it seems a bit early, I’m already thinking about baking up that first pumpkin pie! When I got Sanitas Skincare’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask to test out, it did little to keep me from going and buying a pumpkin (or, let’s be honest – a can of pureed pumpkin) for that pie.
It’s perfect timing for this mask beyond the pumpkin harvest – sloughing off that summered skin is a great way to get ready for fall. I have a few rough and dry patches that needed a little attention. And some of us end up with some dark spots after spending time in the sun. An enzyme mask is a great way to gently exfoliate that skin off. The pumpkin enzymes in this mask are combined with essential fatty acids and vitamins to:
• Stimulate cell turnover enzymatically
• Enzymes help unclog pores and dissolve sebum
• Skin texture and tone benefits from exfoliation
• Skin is hydrated and better prepared to retain moisture
• Helps reduce hyperpigmentation
I applied this gel-like mask to clean skin and let it to it’s thing for 10 minutes. I certainly smells nicely of pumpkin, but not quite like pie. It stayed put well, allowing me to putter around the house while I “waited” to rinse it off. My skin can be sensitive to enzyme masks and peels, so I was waiting for that warm, tingling sensation to pop up, but it never did. I still felt comfortable after 10 minutes and rinsed off the mask with the help of a wash cloth (it doesn’t really splash off very easily). My skin felt smooth, plump and well moisturized.
I had no redness or sensitivity after using the mask, although I was sure to be vigilant about my SPF use afterwards. I used the mask again a few days later and still had no adverse reactions. My skin is looking pretty glowy now. I didn’t really realize how dull I was looking until I gave this mask a spin.
