Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque - First Impressions

I was sent a few items from Cellnique to try, and the first I am showing you is the Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque

Day One
First impressions:  distateful smell, unless you like pinapples, very granular, mild stinging when applied.

 Hmm.. I never have been good at instructions.  I did not use a toner before hand.  I also did not dilute it, which is advised for people who are new to AHA's.  I have been using AHA's, but apparently none as strong as this!  I decided since I had already modified the instructions, I would, for my first usage, only leave the product on for ten minutes.

As soon as I removed it by rinsing with water, the stinging subsided.  I expected my face to be flushed and red... it was actually the opposite!  My existing red areas were red, the rest of my skin seemed whiter in contrast.  Hmm.  I am not in love with this product, but I am willing to give it a second chance!

Price: $51 for 50g (cellnique.com)
