Add the CO2 extract and blend thoroughly.
Properties of the mask:
Very nourishing but could also feel quite greasy for many types of skin. However, the mask works well on my neck skin and on the dry skin of my hands.
Can be removed after 20-30 min. with a warm cleansing wipe.
I love its delicious smell of sweet spices!
As this is an anhydrous product, the mask is preservative free and its shelf-life depends on the expiry date of its components. However, it should be preserved if you intend to take it with your fingers directly from the container and not with a disinfected spatula.
