At 42 years of age my Trick or Treating days are long behind me. However that doesn’t stop me from pining for those times of yore when looking for the biggest pillow case in the linen cupboard to gather my loot was just as important as the Halloween costume itself. Growing up in Littleton, Colorado afforded me some great candy hauls. And there is nothing finer after several hours of knocking on doors, than tipping out your stash on the living room floor for all to see. Inevitably some smart arse would give out toothbrushes and dental floss to kids and my dad would always raid my treasure for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
Okay so onto the review….
Even though I love Pumpkins this usually isn’t the kind of face mask I would go for. I have oily skin as you should all know by now and it’s rare that I would choose something for dry skin to put on my face. However this is the exception to the rule for two reasons listed below:
The texture – this is a cool, creamy, whipped gel concoction that glides easily on the face. I thought it would be a bit runny but it’s just thick enough to spread a light layer onto your complexion without it sliding off.
The scent – this smells like proper pumpkin pie, and for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about I can only take pity on you. There is nothing better than a thick slab of pumpkin pie other than taking said pie and putting it all over your face. This is the nearest thing.
So with those two things in mind does this actually do anything? I didn’t notice a huge difference other than making my skin soft which I’m assuming is the aim. I believe I would have to have very dry skin to see a massive improvement but that’s fine, I enjoy using it and would repurchase it again.
If you are in the UK you’ll be out of luck when trying to find it as you can only buy this from Bath & Body Works (I told you they were evil) for a modest sum of $12, roughly £7 give or take currency fluctuations.
