Review: Orly French Polynesian Island Spa Treatment

I was recently at Sally's and saw that Orly's Hot Lava Self-Warming Hand Repair Mask was on clearance ($9.99). I wasn't sure the original price since there were no other price tags. I deemed it worth a try but I don't think I would pay more than $10 for it on principle alone. When I opened it, it smelled really nice and tropical (label notes Tahitian coconut and Tiare Flower). Directions said to stir, apply generously to wet hands, leave on 3-5 minutes. For extra heating it says to wrap hands in a hot towel, which I skipped this time just to see how it felt by itself.
Upon applying to my hands it instantly heated, but went away quickly. It covered nicely without being too thick and stayed on just fine. After my estimated three minutes I rinsed off. My hands did feel smoother and more moisturized, plus they smelled like an island escape for awhile afterwards =D. Overall the feel and moisture held up for the rest of the evening. I think it's a good product that smells wonderful and is worth the $10 paid for it. It appears it retails for $30 on Orly's website, a little rich for my wallet so let's just call it a good deal shall we? What's your favorite treatment?

*This product was purchased with my own money
