Looking to add a bit of extra oomph to your skin? Try this.
Why we love this product
Anyone who knows me is well aware that I'm a sucker for masks. And this one is my latest obsession.
"A restorative mask for visible fine lines" is the tag line for this product and it lives up to this promise reasonably well. It really does give the skin a bit of extra plumpness and evens out any fine-ish lines you may have.
I have a fine expression line between my eyebrows and I find that a single application of this product works wonders to erase it. Of course, it does come back eventually, but the mask buys me roughly a day where the line is significantly less visible. So, I love to use this mask right before putting makeup on for a night out. It makes my foundation sit much more flawlessly on my skin and prevents the makeup from adding emphasis to any little lines I've got.
Apparently, the mask provides more sustained results over time. I haven't noticed any of these yet but I've only been using the product for a month. Thus far I believe this mask has delivered the goods, so I have faith it should do what it promises long term. Stay tuned!
Made from natural clay, the mask has a high concentration of antioxidant ingredients which remove impurities from the skin and fight environmental damage like sun damage. Like most clay masks the consistency is reasonably thick, but unlike many clay masks, it's a greenish kind of colour – probably due to the antioxidant additives.
You only need to apply a thin layer to your face to get the full benefit so your tube should last you more than a few months. It feels very cooling on the skin and it has a muted and relaxing smell, so this is the perfect mask for anyone looking to add a little bit of luxury and relaxation into their weekly routine.
You won't regret giving this mask a try.
At $80 I'd consider this product a bit of a splurge, but it's worth it in my opinion. Especially if you're concerned about signs of ageing.
