This is the second in my mask review series. I am really enjoying all of Lavera’s products since I started wtih their self-tanner (review) so when I was on my search for masks to try I thought I’d see what they had. I chose to try the balancing mask.

My first impressions were somewhat apathetic about this mask. My skin is normal with a little hormonal acne now and then but usually well behaved. The first time I used this mask I found that my skin felt very, very tight. But, as we all know, first impressions aren’t always true so I decided to give it a go again. I managed to get three tries out of this mask packet and after the third mask application I was a fan. This mask is much more gentle than the Dr. Alkaitis and can be used up to twice a week. It made my skin so much more luminous and really lived up to it’s name and made my skin very balanced. I want to purchase this mask in a full size to use at least once a week to keep my skin happy, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere except in the sample/single use packet size. Help, anyone?
