I use this in conjunction with the Regenerating cleanser! I apply this directly over the Regenerating cleanser for the perfect summer glow or a winter refresher. My skin feels absolutely amazing after i use this mask! I occasionally use the mask alone and it works great alone but i prefer it with the cleanser for the extra resurfacing power! My skin is very dry and flaky but it is also sensitive. I can leave this mask on for up to 40 mins with no irritation!
