When looking for a face masque what do you look for, me I tend to pick ones to help spots and just calming any redness or helping to rehydrate. But how about a multi tasking masque that can be used in many different ways for many different things and in fact doesn’t just target one thing but many all at once. I am really really excited to tell you all about the Skin Ceuticals Phyto Corrective Masque* because it is one that will suit so many people and I am sure you will love.
So who are SkinCeuticals, well their story started long before the company’s founding in 1994 thanks to the pivotal research performed by Dr. Sheldon Pinnell. In the years since, they continued to pave the way with innovations in skin science. Their main priority is healthy looking skin, their products are backed by science from the first stages of their development through the packaging of the final formulations, extensive clinical testing that proves their products efficacy making SkinCeuticals a leader amongst cosmeceutical brands.
So you know they are the real deal, they know what they are doing and they are good at it but what can this masque do for you? I have been using this for about 3/4 weeks now and wow. I personally have been using it after a bath once or twice a week when my skin is warm and pores are open this is amazing as it is so so cooling. My skin is the perfect surface for this mask because skin can become reactive for so many reasons such as environmental aggressors, intensive treatment and exercise. This can lead to the skin feeling red, blotchy, dull, tight and dehydrated. Well guess what my skin is all of those things right now and this is what I need because something needs to help a girl out here so when I got back from holiday and it was there I think my skin screamed with joy.
This masque is so versatile it can be used whenever you feel you may need it;
Daily – post work out, after sun exposure, after a hot bath
Weekly/ Seasonal – traveling, after being in chlorine or salt water or after winter activities
Post Procedure – after IPL, no abrasive laser, or other procedures like skin peels etc.It’s very green formula is packed with great benefits. It has everything below and these ingredients along with the lightweight texture are clinically proven to reduce discomfort by 47% and decrease visual redness by 20% and with prolonged use gives replenished hydration, restores radiance and smooths.
Green Botanicals = Cucumber, thyme, olive and mulberry extracts to provide comfort
Calming Dipeptide = Calms and helps to reduce the perception of hear sensitivity
Hyaluronic Acid = A natural lightweight formula to help replenish the skins hydration.
This mask has double the concentration of green botanicals in comparison to their ‘hero product’ Photo Corrective Serum, so this is the new superhero in town! It is really easy to use and I bet on holiday and in the summer popping it in the fridge before use would make this uber lovely and even more cooling on the skin. You can either rinse it off as you would a traditional face mask, leaving for around 10-15 mins. Leave on after washing your face in the morning, if you didn’t wear make up I would say. I however like I said use it after a bath, I apply the light but kind of jelly like formula thinly over my face and neck avoiding the eye and lip areas and leave overnight for extended skin replenishment.
This is literally making my skin so much calmer especially after holiday for some reason my skin has been playing up so much some areas are OK some are having a breakdown and I have no clue what is causing it but this is certainly making a difference. It retails at £55 for 60ml and is available at Skin Ceuticals or at selected authorised distributors and is part of a SkinCeuticals targeted professional mask treatments which include the Clarifying Clay Masque – next on my list as it is deep pore cleansing and the Hydrating B5 Masque to replenish depleted moisture levels in dehydrated skin I think this one will be perfect for a holiday.
If you’re having any skin woes be sure to give this a try it is such a great all rounder and can be used in so many ways depending on what you need it for, much better than a one hit wonder mask.
