In this post, I am highlighting Licorice Root Extract which boasts a number of active ingredients & properties that give your skin some serious love, especially when it comes to protecting & brightening. Improving hyperpigmentation is one of this plant’s most well-known attributes. It also contains glycyrrhizin, a powerful antioxidant which can help in treating atopic dermatitis, rosacea, & psoriasis. It contains glabridin, a UV-fighting super ingredient which prevents pigmentation from UVB rays by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme that causes dark pigments after sun exposure. It also protects the skin with Licochalcone A which helps your skin produce higher levels of antioxidants, fortifying your skin’s defenses & preventing UV damage in the process.

Apply a medium-thick layer of mask to the skin & leave on for 5-10 minutes. After the expiration of 5-10 minutes, rinse the mask off thoroughly with cold water. Meditime recommends that this mask be used 1-2 times per week.
This product comes packaged in a sleek, sexy, shiny teal & black box that features teal & white writing. Inside is the mask, housed in a substantial black plastic tub with a screw-on lid. The tub matches the box wonderfully. Also inside the box is a spatula for hygienically removing the mask from the tub. There is also a small card with directions in English for using the mask, which I definitely appreciate.
This mask has a gooey, almost peanut buttery texture, with fine, evenly dispersed, sand-like scrubbing particles. It has an earthy, natural smell that is not overpowering or bothersome. This mask is packed with amazing ingredients for a wash-off mask. Typically, wash off masks contain mostly kaolin clay or some other type of clay & very few other beneficial ingredients. I love that this mask contains so many diverse & skin-loving ingredients. I like that this mask has gentle physical exfoliating properties as well. I appreciate that this mask contains Licorice Root Extract which is known to be a powerful, natural skin lightener.
If you have read my reviews, you know that my skin tends to be super sensitive & very dry, which can be good because I don’t have a lot of sebum buildup, breakouts or blackheads. That being said, I do have some blackheads & larger pores on my nose from my pre-hysterectomy days. I usually stay away from clay masks because they are so drying, but I was excited to try this mask because of all of the additional ingredients aimed at providing benefits other than stripping the skin of sebum. I also usually shy away from physical exfoliators as they can cause micro-tears in skin & especially sensitive skin. But the texture of the exfoliating grains in this mask is very fine & very gentle. I did patch test this mask on the back of my hand prior to slathering it all over my face (always a good idea for us sensitive skinned folks). This mask did not cause any irritation to my skin. It left my skin feeling moisturized instead of stripped. It left my pores looking smaller & more refined. It even appeared to give my face a quick mini facelift, making my skin feel firm, yet supple. I also loved the fact that this mask helped gently remove any flaky, peeling skin caused by Tretinoin & Hydroquinone usage. This mask left my skin looking glowy, hydrated & feeling velvety to the touch.
Upon initial application, expect to experience a warming or tingling sensation from this mask. I did not find it uncomfortable & after the first few minutes, it subsided. I lost track of time while masking, so I left this product on longer than the directions recommend, but I did not have any problems.
Overall this is a great mask & I would certainly repurchase it as I prefer it to most of the other clay masks I have in my skincare wardrobe. You can find this product on Amazon, retailing for $21.99 for 3.53 ounces. It only takes a little bit of this mask for effective results, so I expect that it will last a long time.
