As you can see from the photograph, I used this mask and guess what, I loved it... But just because I loved using it, does that mean that the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel Mask is worth a repurchase?
To start with, the mask aims to exfoliate the skin using fruit enzymes. Not to get into the science, these enzymes will eat away at the dead skin cells that lie on the surface of your skin to reveal the clear, plump and bright skin beneath it. I love exfoliating products, I find that exfoliating products and facial oils are complete game changers. When I first used this mask it was an ultimate game changer because I couldn't name a single thing wrong with it. Did it smell good? Like peaches. Did it feel nice? Creamy, almost like peach yoghurt. Did it sting? Not much, not at all really. Did it leave my skin smooth? Like a baby's bottom. Was it good for pre-special occasions? It was reserved for that purpose as it created a flawless canvas for makeup. Did it leave my skin feeling plump? Looking brighter? Less angry/dull/spot-prone? Check, Check and Check again. I know. it sounds like a miracle mask and at £32 it is pricey but you don't need much of this stuff so it will last a long time and it is totally worthy of the price. However, I won't be repurchasing this product. Now, you're probably wondering why? Well, quite simple, because it isn't better than the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I adored every second of using this mask and the experience truly is spa like, as you would expect from an Elemis product but the results aren't quite as amazing as the REN mask which truly does leave you with beautiful skin that will improve with continuous use. If you want to try this mask, I do recommend this as it is delicously good (but don't eat it, yes it smells and feels like yoghurt but do not eat it) but if hardcore results win over experience then perhaps try something else.
The TLDR? Gorgeous mask but it doesn't beat the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask.
