HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS/SMELLS:
It looks like a regular creme, it's rather lightwight yet very moisturizing. It's easy to apply. It blends very nicely with the skin and leaves a very subtle sheen to it. It has a very very light scent.
HOW TO USE IT:
Apply generously over clean face and throat, avoiding eye area. After 5 minutes, gently tissue off. Use three times a week.
You can also use less product and leave it on the skin without removing it if you prefer. It's quickly absorbed by the skin. At the Estée Lauder press event, it was said that you could use it during the day on top of your make up for a moisturizing boost. I've tried using it this way and it does work wonderfully to refresh your skin.
Shea butter (moisturizer), some humectants (glycerin, butylene glycol), a bunch of anti-oxidants and antiinflammatory agents to protect and soothe the skin.

As you can see in the ingredient list one of the most concentrated ingredients of this mask is shea butter. Shea butter is well known as a wonderful moisturizer and it's good to see a high amount of it in this formula. But don't be afraid, the consistency of this mask/creme is not thick, its spreads well and is easily absorbed by the skin. This is partially due to Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer that provides a sensation of freshness followed by a melting effect on contact with the skin. It leaves a feeling of velvety softness.
There are also humectants, emollients, and skin conditioning agents to give the skin an energized look. Other interesting ingredients are antioxidants, such as found in cucumber, magnolia (1), lady’s thistle (2), wheat germ (3), barley, and caffeine extracts. Magnolia (4), Chlorella Vulgaris (an algae 5), and St. Paul’s Wort (6) extracts have antiinflammatory properties. Mimosa (7) extract has been reported to have wound healing properties.
I'm loving Estée Lauder skin care products more and more because I think they always make excellent products with topnotch ingredient lists. Products are well formulated and work as they're supposed to. This mask is a wonderful moisturizing mask especially for people with normal to dry skin.
This mask does brighten and give your skin a more rested and radiant look. Moreover, it contains many antioxidants and antiinflammaotry ingredients to soothe and protect the skin. So this is a product I can highly recommend and that I would gladly repurchase.
