This face pack helps nourish, hydrate and brighten my skin. This leaves my skin soft and glowing. It does help remove sun tan and does not irritate sensitive skin. I really do not have enough words to praise this face pack.
This milk face pack can be applied daily which is what i did for the past two weeks. This has become my go to face pack during the winter season. I have always loved to include a fruit in my face pack to nourish and add that extra antioxidant benefit.
Banana has vitamin c and B6 which helps lighten skin while providing anti ageing benefits. It helps hydrate your skin too which is essential for clear glowing skin.
You may go for papaya, banana or cucumber depending on your skin. Honey is anti inflammatory and also a good moisturiser. It does help soften the skin and soothe irritations too.
There wasn’t any need to add water to this face pack as everything blended together well.
Once it is dried, it may seem like a hassle to wash the face pack off. You have to keep massaging until the pack loosens to wash it off. I have not tried applying a very thin layer though. That may solve the problem. Considering the goodness of this face pack, i do not really mind that.
