Let me start by saying that I am not much of a mask person. It is not something I do “religiously” several times a month. I used Dr. Alkaitis Organic Enzyme Exfoliating Mask ($55) a few times a month for the last few months and I am quite satisfied. I love that the ingredients consist of phyto-nutrients, antioxidants and minerals and nothing to be afraid of!

As for applying the mask, it can be a little messy. The product consists of a powder to which you add water and then apply. Dr. Alkaitis says that the masks are “biologically active and made from pre-digested ingredients increasing their therapeutic potential. By adding moisture to the mask, these unique ingredients are brought to life and in turn allow the skin to absorb fully their nutrients.” That being said, I added a bit of water to obtain the benefits! Once the mask is applied, you are directed to spritz your face with water or cover your face with a moist towel in order to keep the mask moist during the seven-minute experience. Then you use a soft moist cloth or your hand to rinse the mask off.  Note: the fragrance of the product is pleasant and earthy.

The results I experienced after each use consisted of: significantly softer skin, no sign of any dry skin flakes and a healthy, brighter complexion. I didn’t experience any significant anti-aging benefits but, since the product is full of good ingredients, I felt I was giving my skin a nice treat. This product is a bit pricey at $55 but, a little appears to go a long way.
