Ilcsi’s Sour Cherry & Blackthorn Gel Mask might make you look (superficially) like you’ve contracted measles, but don’t be deterred by the jam-like consistency and ‘day-of-the-dead-esque’ aesthetic – the glow-enhancing results are inversely proportional to your short-term, child-terrifying appearance. Trust us, the beauty benefits are supernatural! Ilcsi became a cult brand when it was voted a member of the international ‘Superbrands’ a few years ago – it has since been virtually impossible to get hold of (much to the dismay of its legions of devoted fans)… until now! Our former bestseller is back and better than ever, so what are you waiting for? Dip your face into this so-natural-you-could-eat-it face mask, and try not to spread it on your toast…

How to use
Apply a thin layer to clean, damp skin (steam from a warm shower is great pre-mask). Leave on for 10 to 15 mins. Remove by gently sweeping away with damp cotton wool or a damp muslin cloth.
If you only drink socially, but are a very social person... or eat a lot of salty foods, or lack decent sleep, or have allergies, or have been recently dumped by a cad or cadette, you will be familiar with what I call morning blub face. It's that all over puffiness that centres around the eyes.
THIS mask is your friend. Keep it in the fridge (maybe with a sticker to stop midnight toast feasts from going rather expensively wrong) and smear a thin layer on your face. Not only with your skin look brighter and more even (for better make up application) after 10 minutes, this takes down the puffiness. I'm not sure why, but it does. YAY!
Bring back the old formulation
This used to be one of HG - I've repurchased at least three or four times, but this last round was quite disappointing. It used to come in a nice glass jar and tingled slightly upon application and made me *glow* afterwards (don't ask me how, because I've never had another mask manage that). They repackaged it in plastic and did something to the formula - it still smells lovely, but no longer seems to do much. For what it's worth, it's never broken me out or done anything bad to my skin in either formulation, but I miss the old version.
Too much fragrance
This mask worked really well on my skin and my skin feels clear and hydrated after using this.
I won't repurchase though because the amount of fragrance in this product is intolerable. I am really sad they put so much of it in this mask, it's so unnecessary and apart from being irritating to any skin, the smell also really burns my nostrils.
One of my favourites
I have very dry and sensitive skin so am always looking for things to make it feel better. I really like this mask, it doesn't irritate my face and my skin always looks revived after I use it. You will look like you're covered in jam while its on though which is quite entertaining. I use it around once a week, usually after a shower or bath and leave it on 5-10 mins while I apply body moisturiser.
I'm sorry to review this product so poorly but I can't recommend it to anyone, especially not to someone with dry skin, such as me, I found it very drying, even removing the mask after only 5 minutes. I had quite high hopes, but it really didn't work for me. It did nothing but leaving my skin dull and lacking of any moisture whatsoever. I couldn't see any results, on my skin it did nothing but drying it out.

I really love this mask and not only does it smell divine, but it also made my face look hydrated and smooth.

Funny mask experience
I confirm this mask smells like real cherry! Not like a synthetic, candy-like fruit. Despite the initial sting, thereafter, it helps appeasing my Spanish summer sun-drenched skin and leaves it clear and smooth. I keep it in the fridge for that fresh, rested effect. Coupled with the Sour Cherry moisturising cream (for which I left a positive review as well), this would make a lovely, quirky present.
I got this as a sample, but it makes my skin feel so tight but moisturised at the same time.
This gel like consistency mask is very refreshing to use and quite brightening for a dull day. Love it.
I absolutely love this mask! It hydrates and brightens skin without being harsh at all.
Not recommended for SENSITIVE skin
I was very excited about this product. But my face felt very irritated after the first application. I had to take it off with a damp cloth after 5 min. My skin was burnt red and didn't feel very hydrated. I was kind of disappointed because of the high reviews.
Fresh new me!
Love it! Bought it based on reviews and am super happy. The mask looks a sight when on my face and scares my children, but I literally look better afterwards. My skin glows and is de-puffed. Will definitely repurchase!
I have been trying many organic range and some with very heavy price tags. This brand is my favourite so far, my friends actually complimented my skin when I started using the range. Please bring the whole range to Cult, I really love their Stonecrop line.
I am very lazy with masks and thinking of putting chemicals onto my skin for it to soak up is very off putting, this cherry mask is the only one that I make an effort to use.
Hand Cream Solo
Face like Quasimodo - use this!
First of all I want to say I don't usually use stuff like this. However after suffering an allergic reaction and spending 6 hours in casualty with a severely swollen face (especially around the eyes) I was discharged, but still with the horrific swelling. 12 hours later having taken countless anti histamines as prescribed by the hospital, I was still in the swollen / not for public outings bracket. At this point I reluctantly (after persuasion of the what's the worst that can happen type from the wife) smeared myself in this cherry jam stuff. Now for the next 15 minutes I looked even worse (like someone in the burns unit), however after I washed it off, my face was unbelievably far less swollen and I could leave the house without a bag on my head. In summary - Amazing stuff!
My perfect find!
Lovely smell and texture, makes my skin super soft and glowing. I will repurchase it for sure!
Feels great & works!
I was pleasantly surprised by the jam-like texture and the delicious smell of this mask, however, my biggest surprise was how great my face felt afterwards. I have sensitive skin but my skin was so soft and smooth the next day. I love using this mask, it is so relaxing and works really well. A true must-have!
Different mask experience!
I have skin that tends to go very oily in the summer and "normal" in the winter (with a few dry patches). I bought this mask to use to hydrate and refresh my skin.
First of all, the smell is absolutely divine. Natural cherry pie smell is the best way to describe it! It is a bit strange to apply, as there are lots of pieces of cherry right in the mask. I left it on for ~30 minutes and my skin was so soft and evened out after using it. I use a lot of sheet masks and rarely see these kind of results from a single mask.
I loved it so much I really want to try other masks in the line!
The only con, I wish it came in a slightly larger size. The pot is quite small, but then you don't need much.
Fresh jam like
The mask is very natural and the texture as well as the smell is even better than real jam. The outcome is fine but nothing better than good. Btw, do not leave the mask on your face more than 15 minutes, because that will dry out your skin.
I absolutely love these masks. They smell great, not too artificial, not too much like jam - they smell like summer in a jar.
Skin is refreshed and bright after using this one. Absolutely recommended!
Can't live without
I friggin' love this stuff so much I buy two at a time. Does everything - calms sensitivities, hydrates, calms breakouts, smells delish...
This face mask brings me back to my grandmother's garden. The mask itself looks like homemade jam and once applied to the skin, is very refreshing and gel like. Looks a little scary though for other people though, doesn't look like an ordinary mask, but works great!
Not for me!
This smells great has a lovely texture but because it is very rich it caused breakouts on my skin. I enjoyed using it, and have used it 3 times all with same result on my normal/combination skin. Just too rich.
My skin feels so soft and smooth after using this mask. I just LOVE its scent. My skin is plump and looks GREAT! It feels great too. It's so soft to the touch! My skin stays more hydrated and has a youthful look. It works great with the Sour Cherry Moisturizer!
Fresh and natural mask
I like this brand because of the natural ingredients. Natural and fruit smell is the selling point. At first time in use, I apply it on a clean and dry skin. A bit difficult to remove when you wipe it with water. So, I carefully read the instruction again in second time, remember to apply and clean and wet skin, it's easily removed after 10 mins application.
I felt the skin tone got brighter and moisturized after use. Also, the price is ok for not a small amount mask
The first time I tried this mask was the morning after I'd cried myself to sleep following a silly row. I woke up with a post-crying face that honestly looked as if I'd been punched - I've never seen myself so distorted or swollen before. Cold cloths, teabags, a couple of hours of being upright - nothing helped. In desperation I whacked on this mask, and twenty minutes later looked not only COMPLETELY unswollen, but actually sort of radiant. I couldn't quite believe it. Hands down the most effective mask I've ever tried, and it also smells and feels comforting and gorgeous, esp. if you keep it in the fridge. Will never be without it if I can help it.
Smells delicious - now a must have!!
This is a gorgeous smelling mask with nice uncomplicated ingredients, as soon as it hits your skin is fells like a drink - afterwards it leave the skin tighter and more nouished - Highly recommended!
This is the only product that has ever had any effect on the puffiness under my eyes – and I have tried a few! I often wake up with puffy eyes, but now I just apply this around the whole area and leave for ten minutes while I am washing my hair and body in the shower. It is a real pleasure to use, with a gorgeous smell and texture like cherry jam. It takes down all the puffiness so I look wide awake and ready to face the day.
