Celebrity skincare routines are a great place to get inspiration for your own routines—they have access to the top dermatologists, experts, and products. But often their routines are out of reach for the average skincare lover, the high-end prices are out of budget. So when we hear of a celebrity-used product that’s affordable, we don’t gatekeep. White Lotus star Alexandra Daddario revealed she likes the Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask. And it’s on sale right now for just $13.
It’s no surprise that this pumpkin mask caught the eye of Daddario, she previously told Byrdie, “I’m someone who tries all these different products, but I always tend to lean towards things that have more natural ingredients.” The affordable skincare brand prides themselves on using natural ingredients to formulate and all of the products are organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, sustainable, fair trade, cruelty-free, and nature-derived.
The first few ingredients in the list read like a good smoothie recipe with pumpkin, aloe vera juice, and honey. Glycolic acid and fruit acids come into play as exfoliants to chemically slough away dead skin cells so skin looks smoother, brighter, and glowier. The mask is also a top-seller on Amazon with over 5,200 reviews. And shoppers rave about the difference it has made. Many reviews mention the brightening effects and how soft and glowy their skin looks after washing it off.
The brand recommends using the product one to three times per week. To use: Apply the orange-tinted mask evenly to clean, dry or damp skin, then leave for 10-20 minutes. Finally, rinse with cool water. You may feel a tingling sensation while it’s on your face, but have no fear: it’s just the alpha hydroxy acids getting to work. They need to unstick the dead skin cell “glue,” after all.
Grab your own jar while it’s on sale and see for yourself whether the fanfare is deserved. And since Daddario clearly has great taste in skincare, shop her other Amazon recommendations below.
