Fermentation makes the nourishing ingredients in the sea kelp more bioavailable to your skin and helps it to absorb better.
Honey is purifying and antibacterial -- specifically, topical application helps to build a better skin microbiome because it inhibits the growth of pathogenic (bad) bacteria and increases the activity of commensal (bacteria).
For this reason, honey is extremely soothing for skin and will help to diminish redness and irritation and to soothe and heal acne.
Licorice Root is a powerful discoloration agent. It can help with dark spots, scarring and evening skin tone. Licorice root extract also contains the antioxidants glabridin and licochalcone, which have powerful anti-aging and skin-soothing properties. Licochalcone also helps to balance oil production.

"Wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow.
Smell - reminds me of something very botanical / earthy. It's a very grounding scent.
Feel - very very bouncy, this reminds me a TON of the Mermaid Mask! I love it!
While masking, it feels tingly / warming on my skin. I'm hoping that's a good thing. It ended up with a kind of cooling effect while it dried. I felt like it was a little difficult to wash off, like it kinda just wanted to go from dry to slimy. I basked in the slime though. Also since I have super dry skin, my skin felt really nice afterwards but it did feel slightly tight and dry.
BUT LOOK AT MY FACE AFTER USING IT
I feel like as long as I do my deep treatment overnight hydration after this mask, it will be perfect.
