My Review:

I like honey and propolis in a skincare product. I use a wash-off mask 2-3 times a week. it is interchangeable between a hydrating wash of mask and a clay clarifying wash off mask. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is a pretty popular product. The texture of the product is very creamy with a soft brown color. It does not have a sweet honey smell that I usually find in other products contain honey. It still has a nice scent to it. I put this on my face when my skin still damp, and I applied a generous amount of mask to cover my face and neck. I like to wear a thick layer of it on my skin. The website says you can use it as an overnight mask, but I never use it as an overnight mask.

I like the tube packaging, it is very practical, hygienic, and travel friendly. Easy to dispense the product without squeezing it so much. When the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask running out and you can squeeze it anymore, you can just cut the packaging off to scoop up the remaining products.

The mask is creamy and light, it is not like a thick moisturizer. Spread easily on the skin. When using it my skin feels cool and it is not having that heavy feeling to it. I quite enjoy this mask. I leave it for about 15 minutes or sometimes 20 minutes before I rinse it off. Afterward, my skin feels moisturized, fresh, and hydrated. I actually expected more from this product. I mean it is a nice product, but that just it. It does not irritate my skin or cause acne, but it did not do much for my skin either. It added moisture to my skin, but it did not last long. On my skin, it did not help to calm acne either. Honestly, I have tried better moisturizing wash off mask that works better than this Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask at a cheaper price.
