Andalou Naturals Fruit Enzyme Mask

September 12, 2014


Se spomnite mojega navdušenja nad Andalou Naturals Glikolno masko za obraz? Odlična maska z bučo in medom, ki krasno odstrani odmrle celice in kožo pusti mehko in sijočo. No, danes pa bom govorila o njeni "dvojčici", Andalou Naturals Fruit Enzyme Mask oziroma sadno-encimski maski. Izdelek ni testiran na živalih, je brez parabenov, ftalatov in drugih toksičnih sestavin, brez glutena in gensko spremenjenih sestavin.

Andalou Naturals BioActive 8 Berry Fruit Enzyme MaskKot že samo ime pove, vsebuje sadje - brusnični in jabolčni sok, limono, "BioActive 8 Berry Complex", kompleks osmih jagod z antioksidantnim delovanjem, med njimi so acai, goji in aronija.  Maska vsebuje pektin, olje rakitovca, šipkovo in sončnično olje, manuka med, rooibos, bel čaj in še vrsto drugih krasnih sestavin. Najpomembnejša sestavina pa so zagotovo "Apple + Grape Stem Cells", ki obnavljajo mirujoče celice, popravljajo poškodovane celice ter ustvarjajo nove, zdrave celice. Maska je izjemno antioksidantna, zmanjšuje poškodbe celic in spodbuja proizvodnjo kolagena in elastina. Ob vsem tem pa vsebuje še sadne encime, ki nežno odstranijo odmrle celice.

Maska diši po jabolkih, gozdnih sadežih in pomarančah, zelo diši. Konsistenca je kot mešanica medu in želatine (saj ne da bi vedela kakšna je v resnici ta mešanica :)), ni tekoča ali lepljiva, ravno prav. Zelo prijetna za uporabo. Maska je primerna za vse tipe kože, tudi za občutljivo, glikolna maska definitivno ni. Sem pa tudi pri tej maski opazila, da prvih nekaj minut rahlo peče. Nič kaj veliko, malo. Po glikolni maski koža lahko postane rahlo rdeča, kar hitro mine, po tej sadno-encimski maski pa koža ni nič rdeča. Vse super, razen tega, da maska odmrlih celic ne odpravi tako dobro kot glikolna maska. Koža je po uporabi suha, žejna kreme in na nekaterih delih obraza se mi včasih pojavijo madeži suhe kože. Kot, da bi morala biti maska na obrazu še dlje. In Mayah mi je to tudi svetovala. :) Do sedaj sem jo najdlje pustila 20 minut, morda pa bi delovala bolje po 30 minutah. Tega pa res še nisem preizkusila. Je pa res, da na embalaži piše, da nežno odstrani odmrle celice in očitno je za mojo kožo prenežna. No, razen tega, pa je koža po nanosu kreme vseeno kar sijoča in enakomerna. Ne bi rekla, da je gladka in mehka na otip a na moje veliko začudenje izgleda gladka, kar pa je tudi nekaj.

Maska me je na začetku kar malo razočarala, sploh sem pozabila nanjo in je nisem veliko uporabljala. Saj mi je kar všeč a učinkovitost je zelo odvisno od tipa kože, moja (z)mešana je zaljubljena v glikolno. Encimska je po mojem mnenju boljša za normalno in suho kožo, tudi občutljivo. Nasploh so encimske maske najboljše za nego občutljive kože. Bo pa moja najljubša encimska maska še najprej ostala 100% Pure Encimska piling maska z ananasom. :)

Remember how I was all about the Andalou Naturals Glycolic Mask? Excellent mask with Pumpkin and Honey that removes the dead skin cells and leaves skin soft and glowing. Well today I'll write about its "twin", the Fruit Enzyme Mask. It's cruelty free, free of parabens, phthalates and other toxic ingredients, gluten free and with non-GMO ingredients.

As the name suggests, the mask contains fruit - Cranberry and Apple Juices, Lemon, BioActive 8 Berry Complex which is a certified organic portfolio of superfruit antioxidants like Acai, Goji and Aronia Berry. The most important ingredients have to be the Apple + Grape Stem Cells, age defying cells that renew dormant cells, repair damaged cells and regenerate healthy cells. It also contains some other amazing ingredients like Sea Buckthorn, Rosehip and Sunflower Oils, Manuka Honey, Rooibos and White Tea. All these ingredients create a potent mix of antioxidants to slow cellular damage and stimulate sin firming collagen and elastin. Besides that, the fruit enzymes gently dissolve dull, dry surface cells.

The mask smells absolutely lovely, like apples, berries and oranges. Consistency is like a mixture of honey and gelatin (not that I really know what that looks like:)). It's not runny or sticky, just right. Easy to apply and to wash off. The mask is suitable for all skin types and it's way gentler that glycolic mask. First couple of minutes it does burn a bit but not too much, just a little. The skin feels perfectly fine when you wash it off, it's not red or anything like that. So far so good. However, there's one problem. The mask just doesn't remove all of the dead skin cells. It actually leaves my skin dry and thirsty and almost always when I use it I get a few dry patches, really strange. It's like the mask should be on longer to completely remove everything. And that's actually what Mayah suggested. :) So far the longest I've left it on was 20 minutes, it was okay, I don't know, maybe it will work better after 30 minutes. But to be fair, it does say that it gently dissolve dry cells so I guess it's just too gentle for my skin. After applying a face cream my skin doesn't feel smoother or softer but it kinda looks smooth, which is also nice.

I will say I was initally a bit disappointed with it and I kinda forgot to use it. But don't get me wrong, this is not a negative review because the mask has wonderful ingredients and I know some really like it and I would love to love it too but it just doesn't work the best on my skin. My combination skin prefers the glycolic one. As far as the enzymes masks go I will stick to my beloved 100% Pure Pineapple Enzyme Peel. But I would recommend this Fruit Enzyme Mask for those of you who have normal, dry and maybe even sensitive skin.


Have a great weekend!

  5. Že pred leti sem kupila encimsko masko od 100% Pure, vendar sem jo potem prenehala uporabljati, ker se mi je zdelo, da ne učinkuje dovolj dobro. Na koži sem jo pustila predpisanih 10 min. Misliš, da bi jo morala pustiti dlje časa? Kako dolgo jo ti pustiš?
    Lep dan :)

    1. Hmm jaz jo pustim 10 ali 15 minut, več je še nisem. Sem pa slišala, da jo nekatere uporabljajo tudi pol ure, nisem pa sprobala tako da nevem če kaj bolje deluje tako :) Morda pa je le prenežna za tvojo kožo..lahko prosiš za tester in jo probaš pustiti dlje pa bo mogoče tudi na tebi dobro delovala :) x

  6. Mmmm it looks like jelly! I've been neglecting my glycolic pumpkin one for a while now; I think I used it too much and I stopped seeing effects. I will have to remember to use it and rotate with the other clay masks that I use more often. :)
