It’s Sunday, the perfect day to treat yourself to an amazing spa(ahhh) day skin care ritual. This week, I highly recommend that you check out StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask for Brighter Skin. It’s spring, and summer is right around the corner, so it’s time for less-is-more makeup. That means, of course, that skin must be in prime condition — bright and even toned.
To that end, incorporating a mask like StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask for Brighter Skin into your weekly routine, will get you to your goal of naturally gorgeous skin.
StriVectin’s Instant Revitalizing Mask is an intensely nourishing 15-minute facial mask that restores clarity and immediately illuminates the complexion. An effective dual-action complex of skin brighteners and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) helps unify uneven skin tone and promotes a smoother, younger looking complexion.How does it work? Patented NIA-114 technology strengthens the skin barrier as it hydrates and boosts the efficacy of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to visibly renew and revitalize skin. An effective dual-action complex of skin brighteners works synergistically to help even skin tone.
Why I love it:
The first time I used Instant Revitalizing Mask, I cleansed, scrubbed and then applied the mask, leaving it on for 15 minutes. What I noticed is that in those 15 minutes, it didn’t dry to the point of “cracking” as most clay masks do if you leave them on that long. It did dry, but so dry that my skin felt uncomfortable. After removing the mask with warm water, my skin looked amazing — definitely brighter and refined.
After a week of using this mask — 3 times — my skin is so clear and bright without makeup. My pores are diminished and the areas where I usually see extra pigmentation are definitely lessened.
This mask is creamy, comes from a tube (my preference — I hate digging my fingers in a jar) and a little goes a very long way. I estimate that using it 2-3 times per week it will last me at least 3 months — great bang for my buck.
I love that with just the use of a mask (and daily SPF of course) my skin can look and feel so much brighter. If you are looking for a way to improve the clarity of your skin without seeing a professional, I suggest doing a weekly spa treatment of cleanse, scrub and treat with this mask.
