My first Éminence product was their Balancing Masque Duo. I loved that it was two masques in one and was the perfect fit for my combo skin. The clay mask was great on my T  Zone and helped draw out all the gunk stuck in my pores. I left the masque on for just over 20 minutes and I love how smooth and clean my T Zone was once I washed it off.

The second half is the Pomelo Cheek Treatment, it smells amazing and felt great on my cheeks. My pores are the most enlarged on my cheeks so I was really excited for this part of the masque. The clay helped to clean out my pours and the shea butter left my cheeks soft, hydrated and feeling amazing.

Revitalizing, moisture-rich masque for combination and normal to dry skin types.

Treat skin to a powerful dose of hydration with this luxurious facial masque. Kaolin clay deep cleans, gently draws out surface impurities, and prepares the skin for the infusion of soothing shea butter to restore skin’s moisture. The antioxidants and vitamins from fresh pomelo juice and bamboo leaf extract help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Arctic Berry Cream smells fantastic! Every time I use it I love how great it leaves my skin smelling and feeling all day. The formula is thick and rich but still very lightweight. It absorbs quickly leaving no residue and my skin feels so incredibly soft and any dry spots are a thing of the past.

Did I mention how amazing it smells? If they made this a fragrance I would be wearing it daily.

Lace Takes Over the Sheet Mask Trend

lace your face

You have probably seen the trend in ‘Sheet Mask Selfies’. Celebrities, Beauty Enthusiasts and Bloggers have been taking to the sheet masks and sharing their selfies with them. Taken from Asian Skincare – as all good skin care remedies and innovations have – the sheet mask is every lazy girl’s facial. Spending 20 minutes calming the skin while relaxing in a cool serum that works its way into the skin – or spend those 20 minutes working on other projects at home as the mask clings to your face and you are free to move around without worrying about creating a mess. There is no need to take extra time out of your day for this beauty routine. And who says the facial can’t be sexy? Say goodbye to boring sheet masks because Dermovia has made the sheet mask out of LACE.

The Lace Your Face Mask covers your face with an advanced formula that will target the areas of your skin for moisture and rejuvenation. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid and 5 other special ingredients: chamomile, apple stem cell, dew grass, squalane and tahitian seawater. This sheet mask is like no other as it can be worn cool or warm, and packs in two uses per mask! The sexy lace material is nonirritating and can be worn by the most sensitive skin types.

The Lace Your Face mask is definitely unlike anything I have ever tried. Most sheet masks are made of a very lightweight material and some are hard to keep put. The Lace Your Face Mask is made with LaceTex Technology which is a high performance compression fabric embedded with beneficial ingredients.

Just pop the mask out of the package and apply around the eyes, nose and mouth first. Then I smoothed it onto my skin and the final step was taking the strap pieces and hooking them onto my ears. I can tell you the mask made me look a bit crazy but it feels amazing. The mask is chock full of serum and instantly made my skin feel better. I tried the Calming Chamomile, after I got used to the feeling on the mask on I loved how moisturizing it felt and that is stayed put.

I left my mask on for just over 15 minutes, after removing I just rubbed the remaining product into my skin. I can say my skin felt great.After a stressful day my skin felt hydrated and healthy and it was a relaxing way to end my day. If you want to ramp up your spa experience you can chill or warm the mask before use! I’m really impressed with how great this felt on my skin and can’t wait to try more masks from this line.
