I was chatting about Sisley masks with my sister's aesthetician, and she told me about Cellcosmet Anti-Stress Mask that the spa was carrying. I initially thought that it's just a selling strategy, but my thoughts completely changed after she tried the mask on my skin during my facial. I still clearly remember how much I loved the result that the mask had brought to my jet-lagged skin.
Cellcomset Anti-Stress Mask doesn't smell as powdery or strong as their Precious Mask, but it still has a recognisable floral scent. Personally, I find it smells a little more pleasant as it's not as overpowering. If you are used to luxury skincare brands in general, then the scent won't be a big problem. I didn't get any headache from it or any sensitivity on my skin, which is a very important factor for me in choosing a product.

Cellcosmet Anti-Stress Mask has a thick creamy texture, which goes onto skin very smooth.
Although it has clays, there isn't much mattifying feel on your skin. There's a very slight mattifying sensation that my skin can feel, and it doesn't feel dry at all even when you take the mask off with a warm wash cloth.
The result is a subtly nurtured velvety soft skin, which brings life back to skin with a glow. It doesn't work like magic, but it certainly leaves my skin feeling a lot better when my skin is rather dull from lack of sleep. Just like their Precious Mask, you will need to use a cloth to take off the mask as it's much easier and quicker due to its thick consistency.

The mask is moisturising enough for my normal/dehydrated combination skin in Summer that I used to use only a mist and a sunscreen after using the mask when I was back in Australia. Despite the fact that Cellcosmet Anti-Stress Mask is still in the clay mask category, the mattifying effect isn't major. Unless you have very dry skin, you won't feel that much mattifying action at all. There's rather more suppleness than tightened pores unlike its claim. At least, it seems to help pores not to get bigger, so it won't shrink your pores like magic. Over recent years, I've noticed that the mask works best to bring skin back to its optimal condition to recover especially after long-haul flights or sleepless nights. Yes, just like its name, it works with stress induced hydration imbalance in skin from my perspective.
So, if you have been eyeing on the mask simply because of your problem prone skin including breakouts and redness, you might want to try some other masks as I personally didn't see much results for those. Also, Cellcosmet Anti-Mask feels very akin to Sisley Facial Mask with Linden Blossom (Masque Givre) designed for sensitive skin which I've been loving for many years since when I was a teenager. And I still think that the Sisley one will be a better fit if you have very sensitive skin as it feels a lot more soothing and creamy. Regardless, Cellcosmet Anti-Stress Mask still works great for normal to dry skin as a part of a skin maintenance routine. I wouldn't recommend it if you have oily/oily combination skin.
