My experience
I used the skin brightening mask from Aroma Essentials, as I have little pigmentation below my lower lip. I tried this product in the hope of reducing the pigmentation. I firstly cleansed my face and toned it with a non-alcoholic toner.
I applied a thin layer all over the face and neck. Since these products need to be stored in refrigerator firstly my skin felt cool as I applied the pack. After some time I had a little burning and tingling sensation. I think the pack was doing it’s job :D.
After it dried I tried taking the mask off by rinsing with cold water. It didn’t wash out easily. After that I rinsed with warm water and it immediately got washed off. After I  washed my skin I felt as though my skin was hydrated and fresh. I felt a glow on face, but found noticeable effect on pigmentation after using the product for about 4 times till now.

The mask is clay sort and has some lumps in it. The colour of the mask is peachy pink while the consistency is a little dry. The lumps make it hard to evenly apply the mask on face. It needs reapplication wherever it doesnt get applied properly.

Overall thoughts
The product does a good job without any false claims. It gives subtle glow and shows effect on pigmentation after the very first use (very little though in first use) The mask has uneven texture which makes application not so easy. The mask should also have a little liquid consistency. The mask gives a little tingling and burning sensation after immediate application. It needs warm water for removal and hydrates the skin sufficiently!

Repurchase – Yes am purchasing as it shows effects in first use only.

Recommendations – Yes totally recommended as it doesn’t dry out the skin and shows effects post first application.
