I tried the IDI Italy MultiAction Mask a while ago and was a little ambivalent towards it. So, I got my friend Rinnah who I know for a fact has sensitive skin, to try it because I figured that if it’d work for her, the claims that it is formulated for sensitive skin will hold true. I think it did :) But let’s see what she has to say.
I have hypersensitive skin and am usually very wary of testing out new products that may cause me to breakout in rashes. Even skincare that is supposedly formulated for sensitive skin can leave me nursing red, inflamed and occasionally itchy patches/bumps all over my face. However, since the IDI Italy MultiAction Mask is formulated for sensitive skin, it should be right up my alley, eh?
Here’s how the showdown between IDI cream mask and my skin went.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I first popped the jar open. Maybe it’s just me, but although it’s less hygienic in the long run, I prefer masks that come in jars/tubs rather than tubes because I find it easier to dig in with a spatula and my fingers. It’s also much faster for me to slap the mask on, rather than having to fiddle with squeezy tubes and I make less mess because I don’t end up with residue smears from my fingers all over the tube. I also find that I can estimate my mask usage much better with a jar/tub and not have to guess at how much product I have left!
The IDI mask looks a wee bit like the emollient creams my dermatologist would prescribe me for my eczema, though the texture of the cream mask is thicker than what I’m used to. (ParisB likens it to thick cream for cooking. LOL.) I like that it’s not fragranced because strong scents near my face tend to irritate my sinuses. In fact, it’s so non-fragranced that my nose doesn’t even know the cream mask is on my face. :P
