Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask is a 10-minute weekly treatment that polishes, brightens and retexturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start. This two phase detoxing and brightening mask is an anti-aging, dullness-diminishing super power.

Phase I is made up of blue clay and an oxygenating mud from the Ice Age. Phase II is formulated with a highly effective AHA acid gel complex composed of 5 fruit and sugar acids that work deeply to detoxify and refine skin that's been neglected, depleted and impacted by the stress and strain of a fast-forward lifestyle. The clay phase goes on with a refreshing, cooling sensation and when blended together with the Activating Gel, it effervesces into a warming sensation that oxygenates, clarifies and smoothes the complexion in minutes. Skin soothing aloe vera gel makes this safe and effective for even

      Comments about Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask:

      I have oily and shiny skin. I don't ever have bad reactions to things. Not saying I had a really bad reaction but I didn't leave this on for more than 4 minutes because of the burning. Used a damp towel to rinse as said but it hurt as I did it. Thankfully I had a rose and witch hazel toner to use after that soothed it then followed with my most moisturizing moisturizer (that I rarely use cause of my oily skin) I feel fine now but we will see how my skin does in the morning. It sucks cause I had high hopes, as I got this for free.

            I had high hopes because I found this line after a really long time of trail and error of looking for a new skin care regiment for my extremely sensitive combination skin. I love the other products I bought in this line but this mask broke my face out. I am returning it.

              Comments about Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask:

              I am newly obsessed with the Skyn Iceland brand. I started with the Detox kit and saw remarkable improvement in my skin within 48 hours. So when I went back to Ulta a few days later to buy large bottles of the Glacial Face Wash and Overnight Moisturizer, I saw this and thought, "If the little kit could make my skin so much better, I wonder what THIS would do!" Well, I found out.

              I used the mask as directed. It was fun. I liked the 2 step system. I liked that it did to my face what Pop Rocks does to my tongue. It kind of sizzled! Surely it was frying away all the dead skin? Directions said to leave on 5-10 minutes. I went for 6. I took it off as directed, with a wash cloth. I rinsed for a good while after that. It said to use a "toner." I don't own one since I have dry skin and they usually irritate my skin. So I just put on the overnight moisturizer.

              About 10 minutes later I saw my reflection in the kitchen window and thought I looked a tad red. Went to the bathroom mirror and saw I was VERY red. I gently rubbed my face and lines of skin literally came off in my finger tips. I kept rubbing gently-- at this point, I was enjoying myself as a science project. Then I rinsed for a very long time with cold water and put on some trusty ole Clinique Moisture Surge.

              My skin is VERY smooth, but still pretty darned red. I'll be interested to see how it looks when I wake up. I have a 50/50 chance of looking amazing...or looking like I fell asleep in a tanning bed.

              Comments about Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask:

              Quite a few unpleasant things; firstly, i felt like i was rubbing toothpaste all over my face which personally is gross but some people might not feel that way. application was extremely messy it definitely should come in tubes or something else. i didn't mind the feeling of having it on but taking it off was a nightmare. it got in my eyes while i was wiping it off which burned immensely and it took a whole hand towel to adequately get all of
              it off my face because it doesn't come off just with rubbing and water. i didn't have any inflammation afterwards but didn't see any amazing results. tbh, it's more cost effective and easier to just apply a sheet mask.

                This mask caused serious inflammation in my skin to the point of being nearly impossible to wipe off as directed, because of how painful it made my face feel. I don't have sensitive skin at all so i'm not sure what ingredient in here did this. Be weary.
