Disclaimer:

Some skin types are sensitive to certain ingredients. Please patch test on another area – such as the inside of your elbow or hand – before applying anything on your face. This mask was tried on combination skin.

About the mask: This is a great fix for all skin types except sensitive skin. The main ingredient is aloe vera, which is known for it’s soothing qualities, however lemon does not suit everyone so we suggest testing this mask out before committing to it. The lemon helps dry out pimples, but it may also aggravate it – hence we suggest using it carefully and if for any reason it does not suit you, feel free to swap lemon with another ingredient such as turmeric or use aloe vera alone.
