What Does A $300 Volcanic Mask Feel Like On Your Skin?

When buying something bougie, you wanna be sure it's worth the splurge before you drop your hard-earned cash on it, don't you?

So, when a "volcanic mask" lands on your desk with a price tag of $300 that promises to give you luminous skin, you take one for the team and try it out. And that's what brings me here - I'm about to tell you if it's worth it.

What Makes This Mask Worth The Price Tag?

Let's not beat around the bush here, bougie brands are often accompanied by a price tag, but in the case of Giorgio Armani's Crema Nera Volcanic Mask, it actually delivers some serious results as well.

The formula is enriched with Reviscentalis, also known as a ‘resurrection plant’ that can be brought back to life after months or even years without water. This unique ingredient helps to restore a bright, youthful glow to the skin, and is also accompanied by ingredients like Macadamia, Tamarind and Sunflower Seed Oil, Vitamin E and Salicylic Acid.

Not gonna lie, I find this video on the Reviscentalis plant really mesmerising so I felt compelled to share it with you.

What Results Can I Expect From this Mask?

This black gel mask (which includes an application brush FYI) has a transforming texture, which melts from a cooling and comforting gel into an oil, and then to a milky texture that easily rinses away - no scrubbing or peeling required.

  • The ingredients work to visibly improve the skin's natural radiance, texture and clarity

  • This formula has skin-refining properties with Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate

  • Dissolves the build-up of dead skin cells & pollutants that contribute to dullness

  • Leaves the skin feeling immediately smoother & looking noticeably brighter

  • Works well as a pre-event skin prep mask for a glowy complexion

So Is It Worth It?

Given the key ingredient is meant to "resurrect" the skin, I thought what better time to try it than after a boozy Saturday lunch that involved too much tequila. Yes, $300 is a lot of money to most people, but I often think classifying something as "expensive" is subjective - so you be the judge.

I can confirm, this mask does something. I don't quite know what exactly, it just makes your skin look...better? So in this instance, if you have the expendable income to buy a $300 mask, and you're looking for something that'll make your skin look glowier, clearer and brighter, Giorgio Armani's Crema Nera Volcanic Mask might be for you.
