IRON WOMEN – IS THIS MASK AS GOOD AS THE SUPERHERO
For Mothers Day hubby bought me a couple of awesome things, one of them being the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask… phew.. what a mouthful. I have heard mixed reviews about this product, and since they are expensive at £16.50 ($22) per mask, the probability of me doing this weekly was unlikely due to the cost. However, hubby did get me the pack of 4, so I get to try them for a month which is awesome!
This mask is Estée Lauders first worldwide Powerfoil Mask, claiming that the foil creates a barrier so that the serum penetrates 25x faster then any traditional cotton sheetmask. Quite a claim, and one that I couldn’t wait to try out, even if only to look a little like a superhero. Will the results be as awesome as the mask looks! Let’s see..
So the mask comes in 2 steps, step 1 is the bottom half of your face, and step 2 is the top half of your face. The mask itself is cotton with a foil barrier; please note the cotton side is to be applied to the skin, not the foil side. The cotton has been drenched in a double dose of Hyaluronic Acid, and also includes their Anti-Pollution and ChronoluxCB™ Technologies; which helps repair the skins appearance at the right time (night); basically means the skin should look younger and healthier, more vibrant and well, I want all of those things.
The mask does look pretty awesome on, and stays in place which is something I definitely need. I have to say I did pop a few robot moves, just to go hand in hand with the cool mask, but behind closed doors 😉 The mask is a little tingly whilst on, and although fragrance free, to me it had a hint of sweetness; I do have very sensitive skin, but had no problems with this mask.
So 10 minutes are up, and off it came. I massaged the residual serum as stated, and although my face felt hydrated and tighter, I originally didn’t think it was worth the money. THEN, after taking the after photos, and seeing the difference, it certainly stands up to its claims. My skin definitely shows signs of improved skin tone, plumpness, and moisture which in turn creates a more youthful and radiant looking face.
My overall thoughts… I think you would need to continue to use this weekly, to maintain youthful and radiant skin, and I can see that after the first treatment, it would be easy to get addicted. I will definitely be adding this product to my wish list.
Tip: inside the pack, there is a lot of remaining serum once the mask has been taken, which I applied to my neck, hands and chest (don’t want it to go to waste)!
I would love to hear from you if you have also tried this product and how it worked out for you., and as always, stay fabulous!
