'Tis the season for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Christmas trees, sweaters and, uh, miserable dry, dull complexions. Luckily, though, we have Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Brightening Mask to soothe our skin — and our worries. Better yet, it's on sale right now for just $13. Aside from the sweet scent and the overall feel-good vibes of pumpkin season, everyone's favorite gourd packs an impressive amount of beauty benefits. Pumpkin is naturally rich in anti-aging Vitamin A (also seen on many skin-care labels as retinol) and helps to encourage healthy cell renewal.
The Andalou Naturals mask combines this powerhouse ingredient with powerful glycolic acid to slough off dull skin cells and leave your skin looking smooth and fresh. It also contains nourishing manuka honey to keep your skin feeling soft. You can feel especially good about slathering this on your face, as the ingredients are all hypoallergenic, organic, vegetarian, and cruelty-free.
When you’re ready to try this out, be sure to start with a clean slate. Remove any makeup or debris from the day with a makeup wipe or your makeup remover of choice. (We love DHC’s Deep Cleansing Oil for this step.) Next, a once-over with a gentle cleanser, dry completely and then apply a thin layer of the mask. (Be sure to avoid the eye area.) Leave on for 15–20 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Repeat twice a week to get softer, smoother skin.
Both festive and effective, this mask was a big hit, both with the experts on our team and with devoted shoppers, for multiple reasons including the sweet-and-spicy pumpkin scent. “It has a rich, luxurious feel on the skin and smells wonderful,” one reviewer noted. “This stuff is affordable, smells and FEELS like tingly magic, and quickly exfoliates, renews and refreshes my skin,” added another. One fan even dubbed it the “best chemical exfoliator ever” and another said it’s their “holy grail.”
It’s safe to say we’ll all be having an at-home pumpkin spa day ASAP.
