My Experience

Skin Type – Normal sensitive

The application is smooth and there wasn’t any irritation on my sensitive skin. I applied the face mask and left it for about 25 minutes.

After rinsing the face pack, the first thing i noticed was that my skin became smooth to touch. It was not slippery like when we use a face wash. Just soft and smooth.

Licorice face pack instantly brightens my skin and hence is my go-to mask to revive dull skin along with my Rice Flour Face Mask.

These two face packs are easy to whip up and works great for special occasions in case you missed your facial and want instant brightness.

It does improve the skin texture by soothing irritated/red skin and tightening the skin.

Regular use does fade acne scars and suntan.

Although i have normal skin, This face pack did not leave my skin dry or stretchy. I did moisturise afterwards with a couple of drops of oil though.
