The review: With two adult sons who have flown the coop and are creating their own place on the planet, I thought I would have had an enormous amount of time for me. However, with the business I run growing at the speed of light, the time to pamper myself is limited. There is always something else to do. These products helped me create a space in my day where I could stop, put my feet up and surrender. With many masks and limited time, we tend to put one on and then do other tasks or work while the mask sets. With this one from griffin+row, you have an organic cotton cloth that you place in warm water then cover your face. This ensures that you are able to put your feet up, relax and give yourself that luxury of time to be. The added bonus is your skin looks fresher, clean and there is a definite radiance. It only takes five to 10 minutes. What a lovely way to tell yourself that you deserve time for you? I found the product very rich and most luxurious. The cream on your face with a warm cloth over the top was quite blissful. I definitely loved the feel of my skin afterwards and the packaging was lovely. It would make the perfect as a gift for someone. I think many people, even men would benefit from the this product. We all need to place some importance on our own personal care and time for that without the feeling of guilt, or trying to do a number of things at the same time … mmmm, it’s always a challenge to do that part!
