Perfection Ultime Radiance Refreshing Jelly Mask!
When it comes to perfecting your skincare routine and catering to its ever changing needs, face masks are a real contender in my eyes. They undoubtedly work wonders on the skin whether it’s to inject some much needed moisture back into a parched skin, plump out a few wrinkles, unclog a few pores or give gloriously glowing skin in minutes - these at home mask treatments are definitely a very effective way to see fast results between facial appointments (and who doesn’t love that 15 minute act of self-care?)
The art of masking has certainly come a long way since ancient times when the Indians used a mix of various herbs, plants ,roots and flowers to treat different skin types, whilst Cleopatra’s beauty ritual consisted of applying a dead sea mud mask as well as a mask made of egg whites to tighten pores. Now embraced by multitudes of women (and men for that matter) today’s at-home face masks have definitely evolved and Gatineau’s face masks are right up there with the best of them. And what’s not to love about a Gatineau face mask? Boasting powerful ingredients, salon-grade strengths, innovative delivery systems, sophisticated textures and most importantly on-demand results, nobody should be without one in their bathroom cabinet. And let’s face it masks have always been at the heart of Gatineau’s 86 year ethos with no less than a third of the duration of Salon Expert Facial spent with a face mask on the skin taking the results to a whole new level.
BRAND NEW Product
And so it seems only natural that Gatineau are adding to the success of their face mask family with the new and exclusive launch of Perfection Ultime Radiance Refreshing Jelly Mask (and I promise this does not disappoint). This new generation ‘jelly’ formula face mask has an incredibly light bouncy texture and its’ silky smooth texture makes it super easy to apply but even more exciting is it’s got a real abundance of ‘jelly goodness’ inside it!
Bursting with skin strengthening ingredients, this intensely cooling face mask is like a jelly ‘soufflé’ which melts into the skin offering an instant quenching tonic and a nice big glug of moisture whilst the carefully chosen superior ingredients work their magic to repair and get those hard-hitting anti-ageing results we are all in the quest of!
And this mask is what I call a true ‘fruitful’ jelly with the fusion of Pomegranate Pith Extract and Kakadu Plum extract making their mark, both of which fruits are abundant in the ‘super vitamin’ which ends in the letter ‘C’. Kakadu Plum, native to Australia, is the ultimate super-food and nutritional power-house and is considered magnificent as it is recorded to have the highest level of Vitamin C out of any fruit in the world! And let’s not undervalue the multi-talented Vitamin C in both of these juicy fruits, also known as the ‘beauty vitamin’ thanks to its incredible antioxidant activity and ability to protect against pollution. Vitamin C always shows the skin some serious love, boosting the skin’s luminosity and glow, improving uneven skin tone, promoting collagen production and reducing inflammation.
And even the ‘petite’ Pomegranate has a long list of accolades to its name and having been used as a natural remedy for over 3000 years it is literally taking the beauty industry by storm. The enzymes discovered in Pomegranate extract combined with the phytonutrients, minerals, fatty acids and vitamins work in synergy to naturally exfoliate dullness-inducing dead skin cells whilst promoting collagen production. Seeing as collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin, its absolute vital for a bouncy, springy, smooth complexion.
This mask is then carefully balanced with a powerful and rare red algae extract, Jania Rubens, which you could almost say breathes new life into ageing skin! From Corsica and capable of absorbing all of the trace elements and minerals from the seawater and more, it is prized for its powerful regenerating and remineralizing influences dramatically improving skin elasticity and nurturing the skin with a super-boosting tonic to recharge and refresh the complexion.
And no Gatineau Face Mask would be without one of skincare's most superior hydrating ingredients known ‘Hyaluronic Acid’. If you haven’t heard of this ingredient before don’t let the acid part put you off because quite simply Hyaluronic Acid is a super hydrating molecule naturally found in the skin and is actually capable of holding over 1000 times its weight in water! Sadly as we age the production of this invaluable molecule declines drastically and therefore the skin’s ability to keep hydrated declines. So it’s no surprise that it’s been added to Perfection Ultime Radiance Refreshing Jelly Mask as it literally acts like a sponge creating a reservoir of moisture in the outer and deeper layers of the skin leaving it looking luminous and rejuvenated.
So whether you are feeling the effects of a stressful day, recovering from a late night, suffering from skin inflammation or just want to treat your skin to healthy dose of goodness, then this mask is going to be your new best friend and is really going to whip the skin into shape. The lavish blend of ingredients together the uplifting notes of the Geranium plant and the freshness of the jelly texture transforms the skin, melting away fatigue and leaving skin with a smooth, hydrated and dewy complexion.
How to apply:
Use 2–3 times a week. Apply a thin layer of jelly mask to clean skin using the handy applicator provided. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with cool water. If you really want a refreshing boost pop it in the fridge before using.
