I purchased this mask earlier in the summer, and my boyfriend and I have enjoyed using it together since. I thought I'd share our thoughts on the mask. His Thoughts: I’ll be honest, I haven’t tried many face masks in my time. I remember trying one of my moms drug store brand peeling face masks when I was young because I thought the concept was fascinating. This Anthony clay mask appears to be a lot more sophisticated. The aroma is earthy with a light fruity note, most likely from the apricot oils; but overall I wouldn’t define the scent as strong nor biased to one gender. I have used the mask now perhaps about six times now. I chose to do the mask on days where I felt my skin has been through a lot (i.e. sun, wind, sweat, etc.). I must admit, the mask does leave my skin feeling refreshed and soothed. I’d recommend it to anyone that ever feels like their skin needs intensive repair or revitalizing. Another benefit appears to be the amount of usages available in the container, between two of us we have probably applied 15 treatments, and I would estimate there is still half of the of the product left. Its also a great introductory face mask for men, especially when their female counterparts can use and enjoy it as well!
My Thoughts: I think the red color of it is different, which is fun, but also very alarming if you've forgotten you're wearing it! (LOL, I promise, this has happened to me on many occasions, and every time it is hilarious!) In terms of the mask itself, I do think it is a nice one at a reasonable price point, but I can't stop obsessing over the sample of Koh Gen Do Brightening Spa Moisture Mask I tried a while ago! However, I did like this Anthony mask quite a bit better than the Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask, which felt nice on but didn't seem to do anything afterwards. This mask at least makes my skin feel clean and smooth, and it doesn't make my skin feel dry afterwards!
We both need to explore masks more, but this is definitely a nice one to start out with. It isn't scary, and seems to be appropriate for many skin types - he is normal, while I'm normal-combination depending on season, and we have varying levels of sensitivity. With the holidays approaching, I think this mask would make a great gift item for a guy in your life! It definitely seems to have a certain allure for my boyfriend, and it sure grabbed his attention over any other mask I've ever pointed out! (Perhaps it is the brand's look and marketing, since he now wants to try their shaving line?) In any event, this mask won out over a number we sampled at Sephora, and is sure making us curious about more products from the brand!
Have you (or a guy in your life) tried Anthony Logistics? When it comes to masks in general, what is your favorite? :)
