I have long held that masking is an essential component to a good skincare routine, and I have been obsessed with high quality masks as long as I can remember. My penchant for clay masks dates back to my early teenage years, and has never abated. In fact, given the technological advances in skincare, I would contend that my love of masks has exponentially increased over the years! My latest mask obsession is StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask, and to state that I am obsessed with it is an understatement.
Don't let the inclusion of Bentonite near the top of the list of ingredients lead you to believe that this is some sort of ordinary, and skin drying, clay mask– it is nothing of the sort. Whether you have dry, combination, normal, sensitive, finicky or acne-prone skin you will see the many benefits from this miracle mask.
According to StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask,
Instantly brightens and revitalizes skin for a more youthful glow. 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 promote a smoother, younger looking complexion.
Unlike many clay-based masks, that tend to leave skin taut and dry, this one does not. Simply apply a thin layer of the white mask over the whole face, avoiding the delicate eye area, and leave it on for fifteen minutes. When it dries down, skin doesn't feel tight, dry or uncomfortable in the least bit. Removal is easy and immediate, and does not require extensive rinsing or scrubbing to remove.
StriVectin claims that it is,
An intensely nourishing and revitalizing 15-minute facial mask to restore clarity and immediately illuminate the complexion. An effective dual-action complex of skin brighteners and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) helps unify uneven skin tone and promote a smoother, younger looking complexion.
Renews clarity and immediately brightens the complexion. As skin texture becomes smoother and more refined, the complexion appears revitalized and awakened with a healthier, more youthful glow.
Whenever I remove the mask, and carefully study the condition of my skin, I immediately note that my complexion is bright, glowing, smooth, supple, even in tone, and unmistakably revitalized and moisturized. The Alpha Hydroxy Acids gently exfoliate dead skin cells, but what's remarkable is that there is no tingling, burning, or any sensation whatsoever for that matter, while the AHAs are hard at work. I have finicky skin that can be sensitive, and there is absolutely no downside to using this exceptional mask. I use this mask 3 times a week, and will continue to do so because the results are so tangible.
The secret to the efficacy of this formula rests on StriVectin's patented NIA-114 technology that "strengthens the skin barrier as it hydrates and boosts the efficacy of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to visibly renew and revitalize skin." It boasts an "effective dual-action complex of skin brighteners AHAs works synergistically to help even skin tone."
