Michael Todd Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $34

THE SKINNY: This facial masque looks and smells like real pumpkin. Not a spicy pumpkin pie smell. Just the pumpkin. It's a little off-putting.

Michael Todd Organics adds glycolic acid to the pumpkin, which is supposed to dissolve dead skin cells and clogged pores and attack other imperfections. But because of that, the masque burned a little when it first went onto my skin. (Side effects can include mild irritation and sun sensitivity.)

It goes on thin and has about the same consistency as canned pumpkin.

This masque was a little hard to rinse off and left my face feeling sticky, even after I used cleanser to try to remove the last of the pumpkin goo. I've been a little itchy after using it, and my skin doesn't look any different.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. Weird smell + weird burning sensation = thumbs down.
