Esika Natural Care Line: Aloe & Mud Hydrating Mask + Cucumber & Ceramides Facial Hydrating Cream

When it comes to my skin, I admit not to be consistent and rarely use every product from the same brand; I tend to mix a lil' bit of everything.
I want to share a combo recently incorporated into my skin care routine, being the mask the most impressive of both products.


Aloe & Mud Hydrating Mask  [1.7 oz]
It claims to immediately hydrate your skin with organic mud & aloe extract.
  • Dermatologically Proven
  • Hypoallergenic 
Instructions: Apply over clean skin.  With soft massaging motion, distribute an even coat over your hole face.  Let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse with water.  Use between 1 to 2 times weekly.



My Impressions:
  • I've seen fast improvement on my skin after the first week of use.  When I'm under stress, my cheeks get very red.  After the mask, the redness have reduced considerably.  I like to use it at night and the morning after the redness is pretty much gone.  
  • While the mask is drying, skin feels flexible? Some mask tend to make skin feel stiff; which I hate!
  • It only takes 5 minutes, which is convenient because I can apply it and let it set while getting a shower, brushing my teeth, choosing an outfit, etc.
  • The package is super convenient! a small squeeze tub that doesn't take much space and eliminates mess.
  • Scents wise, it does smell somewhat perfumy? It reminds me of the Irish Spring soap, but way milder.
  • It has a tick but manageable consistency.  The tube is small [1.7 oz of product] but a little goes a long way.


Cucumber & Ceramides Facial Hydrating Cream [2.1 oz]
It claims to intensively hydrate the skin with the help of cucumber extract.
Sorry, I don't have pictures of the back label; my camera could not focus on the super small print
  • Dermatologically Proven
  • Hypoallergenic 
Instructions: Apply during the day and night over clean, dry skin with circular descendent motion until its completely absorbed.

My Impressions:
  • It helps soothing the skin, I love the fresh feeling that it leaves and that is not greasy. 
  • It doesn't take long for skin to absorb it, so I can apply it right before foundation; doesn't delay my makeup routine.
  • The texture is quite lush, it feels creamy & wet at the same time, but like mentioned above, it absorbs quickly.
  •  It has a very pleasant mild cucumber scent
Final Thoughts:
  • Wish both products came in bigger sizes.
  • I haven't notice any interference of the hydrating cream with my makeup [doesn't make my skin shiny during the day, makeup doesn't melt] so I would recommend it for people with oily skin.
  • Would be nice if the mask came with an applicator, maybe a brush since you have to spread it all over the face. I use a nail art fan brush and feel like I'm at the Spa ;)
  • Even tho I wish for a bigger size, the packaging design is travel & small space friendly.
