When I was a teenager my fav mask was the ubtan my mom made for me and well it basically saved me. I'm pretty sure all of our mom or grandmother did make something like an ubtan for us which has besan, turmeric, milk/curd then add or minus lemon juice or saffron. Now that I am all grown up I barely have the time to go through that process so I just prefer a quick face mask and well this Mamaearth Ubtan mask comes pretty close to it.
This mask has no harmful ingredients even the Cetostearyl Alcohol in the ingredient list isn't bad for our skin. It's a fatty alcohol used so that the consistency of the mask stays constant and that the oil and water components don't separate. Pretty much all the ingredients that are mentioned are good for our skin in some way or are used for smooth & soft skin. It has Glycolic acid in it which helps the skin to get that smooth and soft feel.
The consistency of the mask is not too thick but it's not liquidy either, its quite easy to apply with fingers or a brush, I myself prefer a brush but the brush does get stained yellow if you don't wash it off quickly because it does have turmeric in its ingredients. You can smell the peppermint oil but it's not too strong as it's combined with a lot of other oil extracts. The one you can smell other then the peppermint is the apricot oil.
Now coming to the overall experience of the mask I really like using it. When you apply it on your face you feel the instant coolness even if you have acne or open pores it doesn't sting in any way. The tingle is all cool. The mask calms down your skin. It dries slowly so it takes 15 mins to dry. The scent doesn't linger for too long but if you have a sensitive nose then skip the mask.
The mask instantly gives you a bright fresh look. It's perfect for my dull skin. Also, it doesn't dry your skin, in fact, it moisturizes since it has apricot oil in it and cucumber extracts. It does help with basic tan removal nothing too drastic. I tend to avoid the lightening feature of the mask, I believe in brightening more since I have dry dull skin. It does clean your pores but it doesn't make them smaller in any way. I can't be sure about the anti-aging properties it's not something I noticed because I do have lines on my forehead and I have smile lines and they are still there. But I guess it slows down the aging part because I did notice my skin feels plumper after I use this mask.
Coming to the packaging its good and easy to use, the stopper it comes with helps in stopping spillage of any kind. One tub will last you a good 5 months even if you use it regularly. I used it every week and I still feel like I haven't used enough. So its value for money. Also, the packaging is light enough that you can travel with if you want to.
Overall I'm really loving the whole experience of this mask. Infact because I'm using this I tend to use my Body shop rice mask a little less.
How I like to use it: I first cleanse my skin with a face wash then spray some rose water ( I feel the mask works better on damp skin) on my skin and then apply this mask with a brush evenly on my face and neck. Keep it for 15 mins and wash it off in the shower since that way it's less messy. I tend to use a face scrub when I'm using this since it does work really well by itself. You can use this mask twice a week I use it once because I do have other masks that I try out for reviewing it for you guys.
If you have dry dull skin or skin that is prone to tanning easily you would really love this mask. If you have combination skin you would still like this mask since it moisturizes and cleans your skin so you don't need different masks for different purposes. If you are acne-prone you can still use this mask because I feel regular use will help in fading out the acne marks and also since it has turmeric and peppermint it is anti-bacterial. I would just say don't apply it on active acne. Once this gets over I would repurchase it since I really do enjoy using this mask.
