What does the product description say?
"This exfoliating and energising mask contains radiance-enhancing ingredients like vitamin C and turmeric to brighten plus cranberry seed to gently exfoliate the skin."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
