"My complexion issues are currently a) dryness and b) redness. I’ve tried to address both issues with a slew of moisturizers, serums, and magical potions — some of which have been fine, but none memorable enough in which I would consider re-purchasing (the ultimate test of how good a product is, IMO). That is until...I decided to finally try the First Aid Fab Beauty Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask that I had been hoarding under my work desk. After twisting off the cap and squeezing some product into my hand, I was instantly put off; I’m very picky about scents and this one was almost medicinal. Thankfully, it disappeared within seconds so I slathered it onto my complexion anyway. I applied like I would a moisturizer (it goes on blue but becomes sheer once spread) and hopped into bed. In the a.m.? My skin was nourished, folks. And my usual redness had gone down.
I immediately thought it was placebo (I can’t help that I’m a skeptic) so I decided to continue using it near nightly over my moisturizer and...ugh, I just love it so much. My complexion feels dewy without feeling greasy, cystic chin zits are gone, I no longer have that 'I’m parched' tightness when I wake up, and my naturally rosy cheeks are now mildly flushed and not tomato red by the time I hit snooze. If you’re struggling with redness, winter dryness, or tend to travel a lot, take my advice and invest in this leave-on mask. It works." —AnaMaria Glavan
