So I'm kind of obsessed with face masks. Okay, that's an understatement. I AM EXTREMELY OBSESSED WITH FACE MASKS. (I think the all caps shows just how much I love them.) I buy a ton of them and I use them all the time. And I'm always looking for the next one to take my breath away. Recently, that's the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy Boosting Face Mask.
This mask sat in my Sephora cart for about two months before I finally purchased it. I kept going back to the site and looking at it, almost purchasing, and then stopping myself. Maybe it was the $62 price tag, maybe it was the fact that I already have about a million other face masks in my medicine cabinet. But finally, I just couldn't take the suspense anymore and went for it.
I was mainly intrigued by the fact that this mask is powered by 50 percent real crushed citrus fruits -- a blend of oranges, lemons and clementines that contain AHA fruit acids work to gently refine and smooth the skin with the effect of a chemical peel. The result of crushing up all this citrusy goodness into one amazing little tub? This...

I mean, just LOOK AT THAT DELICIOUSNESS. I really wish you could smell this mask through the screen, because it smells delightfully like orange marmalade. The consistency is also similar to that of marmalade, with a interestingly bouncy texture. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to rub it all over my face -- but my apprehension was put to rest when I saw it sinking in without any weird, crumbly mess left behind.
I let this mask sit on my skin for 20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. And let me preface that by saying my skin was in DESPERATE need of hydration and nourishment. After using this mask, though? All I can say is WOW. My skin was noticeably softer and smoother, with no dullness or dryness that had previously been there. My cheeks and forehead had been especially dry, but after using this mask they felt like the skin of a newborn baby! My skin was also much more vibrant and glowy than before.
Fresh has long been one of my favorite skincare brands, and this mask just makes my love for all things Fresh even stronger. Dry skin is definitely a thing of the past!
