Review: Alba papaya enzyme facial mask

What it claims: Green papaya enzymes gently loosen and dissolve dull surface cells and impurities, helping to improve texture and radiance for a healthy, vibrant complexion.

Gentle for all skin types. pH Balanced.

-100% Vegetarian ingredients. No animal testing.

How to use: After cleansing, apply a smooth, thin layer of mask evenly over face and neck. Leave for 5 minutes (will not dry on skin) and rinse clean. Avoid delicate eye area.

Where you can buy it: Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and anywhere else Alba products are sold.

Price: $10-$14 (depending on where you buy it)

My Rating: 4 Peace Signs

The good: I originally found this mask on sale and needed one at the time so I picked this up. I will say that I like to use this in the summer time or when we're in the warmer months. It has a gel consistency that is really cooling when you apply it. My favorite part about this mask was as soon as I washed it off I could instantly see how it brightened my complexion and my skin was extra soft too.

The bad: The one bad things I could say is that it kind of burned a little when it really settled onto your face and I didn't see any difference in texture or removing of "impurities" so to speak. 

Overall: This is a really great mask that I may repurchase when it's closer to summer but it's not something I feel I need for my overall skincare.

If you have any questions on anything I might have left out just let me know!

I've seen some products from this brand at Wal-Mart but never felt the need to grab one. This one looks interesting though, thanks x

oOoO interesting! I love the alba hibiscus toner. That is the only toner that my skin likes. It's very gentle but gets the job done. I may have to pick this up!
