NEED TO KNOW MASKS – Facial Masks With Professional Salon Results

I’ve always loved a good facial mask. Especially, the ones that save me a trip to my beautician! Luckily for us, with modern day science and the constantly evolving beauty industry, we find more OTC products that work just as well as professional salon treatments.

So here are a few ‘Need to Know’ innovative masks that, so far, have impressed me:

‘At Home’ Mesotherapy

Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask review

Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask

111skin created ‘at home’ Mesotherapy facial mask. For those of you who don’t know; Mesotherapy is a series of micro-injections consisting of hyaluronic acid, vitamins (A, B, C, E, K), minerals, coenzymes and nucleic acids. The treatment deeply moisturizes the skin, stimulates the creation of collagen and elastin, achieving brighter and smoother skin.

Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask has an innovative self-dissolving micro structure technology that allows the anti-aging ingredients to penetrate deep into your skin as they would with micro-injections. As a result, the mask delivers unrivaled anti-ageing results. It’s loaded with pure Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C (powerful antioxidant), which deeply moisturize your skin and erase pigmentation.

The only downside is that you have to wait 90 minutes until it completely dissolves into your skin. So, it’s not your usual 10-15 minute fix. However, it still saves you money and a trip to a clinic.

‘At Home’ Chemical PeelDeep Exfoliating Mask Sensitive review, face mask, my beauty insider

Deep Exfoliating Mask Sensitive Skin

Chemical peels normally involve applying a type of “chemical agent” (AHA, BHA or TCA) to the skin for the purposes of exfoliating sun-damaged, aged or  acne scarred skin while stimulating collagen production for firmer appearance.

Dr Sebagh’s Deep Exfoliating Mask offers a safe and effective ‘at home’ option. This mask contains exfoliating ‘chemical agents’ such as Azelaic and Lactic Acid.  The gentle yet clinically strong formula works to softly buff away dead cells and pigmentation. It removes dead layers of skin for a faster cell turnover promoting regeneration of a radiant, polished and even-toned complexion with visible results after just one treatment. In addition, Azelaic Acid works extremely well for rosacea and acne-prone skin.

This facial mask is ideal for your pre-party beauty ritual, as it instantly brightens your complexion. Just make sure to apply it a few hours before leaving your house. It took about an hour for redness to subside on my skin.

‘At Home’ Lifting Facial

Instant Skin Smoothing Masque

In November 2016, Dermarché Labs announced the launch of ROLOXIN LIFT GOLD: Instant Wrinkle Smoothing Mask with 24K Gold. This facial mask works immediately to reduce the appearance of fine lines, pores and wrinkles. Its breakthrough, patented formulation combines a matrix of hydro-philic and hydrophobic silica particles. Once deposited on the skin, the network of silica particles contracts as the skin dries to instantly create a bright, smooth and lifted appearance. The results are visible after just one treatment. Additionally, 24K Gold helps the ingredients penetrate into skin better and deflect light for exceptional radiance.

An amazing fact is that in a clinical trial, 100% of participants experienced instant improvement in overall skin appearance after a single 10-minute application. So next time you’re thinking booking a lifting facial, try this mask instead. Sadly, as with any lifting facial, the results are temporary but I would say it’s a definite pre-party must!

Unfortunately, this mask isn’t available in the UK right now. However, you can find it’s predecessor Instant Skin Smoothing Masque, which is equally impressive.

‘At Home’ Hydrating Facial

Rose de Vie Hydrating Mask

Rose de Vie Hydrating Mask contains a unique formula that exploits amino acids helping to retain the skin’s essential moisture levels. Extracts of Iris, Rose and Lentil soothe tired, sensitive skin and provides skin with antioxidants to slow down the ageing process, whilst fruit acids gently exfoliate the skin providing better absorption of active ingredients. This complete product offers the same results as a professional hydrating facial, but in less time and for less money.

This iconic mask is particularly loved by beauty insiders. And this love is for legitimate reasons – the mask is deeply moisturising and soothing, and leaves your skin glowing. However, I love it for the relief it provides my dehydrated skin, without causing any break outs. So this is definitely a long term relationship for me!
