      Hi Deniel,
      You should not use this overnight. This mask is only for 5-10 mins.

      Hi Hana,
      This is normal because of cinnamon. That’s why its called burning face mask. You should apply this for a few minutes only.

      Yes, it is normal to feel a ticking burning sensation. However, it should not last very long. Know your body, and remove it immediately if the burning is intolerable. My husband and I did it together and his skin reacted very differently than mine, causing his skin to get very irritated and red.

    Hi there,
    I’ve tried your cinnamon mask for wrinkles, and my face went burning red. I only left it on for 30secs. My face feels extremely smooth and beautiful. Is this reaction normal?
