We’ve got your Friday night face mask! The Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask aims to refresh skin while hydrating and soothing dry, sensitive and stressed skin. It also claims to brighten dull complexions and minimizes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. The mask contains vitamin C, anti-aging peptides, 8 botanical extracts and marine collagen, which stimulates collagen synthesis and promotes smooth, radiant skin.

These masks are ideal for use after peels or microdermabrasion procedures, and can be used on all skin types! Inside of the box comes 4 individually wrapped masks that are ready to use. All you have to do is open the mask and peel off the paper. There are pre-made slits on the mask for your eyes, nostrils and mouth. I found that the eye slits were slightly too small for my eyes, so I gently tore a bigger hole near the eyes for a quick fix! I also found it a little awkward to speak or smile with the mask on (hence the strange photograph of myself). But of course… normally, you don’t photograph yourself with a mask on!

We’re smiling on the inside!

You are to wear the mask for 15-20 minutes. Afterward, you simply remove the mask from your face and discard. You do not rinse your face afterwards. I found these masks to be very effective at moisturizing my skin. Right out of the individual packaging, these masks are very damp with serum. The scent is pleasant though not overpowering. For reference, I have acne-prone, oily skin. The mask did not irritate or cause any additional breakouts for me. After
wearing the mask for 20-minutes, I removed it and gently massaged the remainder of the serum-like product into my skin. My skin was still very wet, so I left it alone for an additional 5-10 minutes until it was fully absorbed. After that, I was able to apply my makeup and go about the rest of my day.

Overall, I enjoyed my experience with these masks. I do not have excessively dry skin or any dry patches whatsoever. However, I can imagine that this product would do wonders for someone who suffers from those types of skin conditions. I did notice that my skin seemed to have a little extra glow to it. I cannot attest to the minimization of lines and wrinkles, because I have not used this product long enough to comment on that. But so far, I really do enjoy these masks! The Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask contains 4 individually wrapped masks and can be purchased for $25 from www.myskincarebox.com or at your local estheticians’ offices.

Skincare Review, Ingredients: Neova Copper Moisture Mask – How Do Copper Peptides Promote Skin Health, Hydration, Reduce Wrinkles?

Pinterest

large_copper_moisture_mask Skincare Review, Ingredients: Neova Copper Moisture Mask - How Do Copper Peptides Promote Skin Health, Hydration, Reduce Wrinkles?
According to Neova, the NEW! Copper Moisture Mask works by “penetrating Copper Peptide therapy [is] designed for in-office facial treatments,” which makes it sound like it is for professional rather than home use. Neova claims the mask, “replenishes depleted moisture with potent Copper Peptide Complex, diminishing visible signs of fine lines and wrinkles and leaving skin feeling smooth and soft.”
 
More specifically, it is said to supply the skin with a powerful dose of copper micronutrition, also hydrating and improving skin’s texture and appearance, as well as diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The key ingredient is a Copper Peptide Complex®, which is also known as Bis (Tripeptide-1) Copper Acetate, that uses the body’s natural protective carrier to deliver proprietary copper peptides — an essential micronutrient for skin health. For maximum restorative benefits, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is said to aid in adding moisture to the skin.

I did try this at home. The mask is a clear, cooling gel that I spread on my (cleansed) face and let dry for about 10-20 minutes. Then, I washed it off with warm water. The application felt very pleasant and invigorating; it was easy enough to remove in a warm shower. I followed up with my usual nighttime moisture routine. In the morning, my skin looked and felt great — so soft, smooth and supple. This is an excellent product and I will be using it 2-3 times a week in the future! For more info., go to: www.neova.com.

Clients|Kiehl's Beauty News Preview: Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion Celebrates 50th Anniversary With New Bottle Design -- Andy Warhol's Favorite Toner!

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, the 163-year-old skincare company unveils a new limited-edition bottle inspired by one of the formula’s most famous fans.

“It’s always been a point of pride for Kiehl’s that one of our most iconic formulas, Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, was beloved by one of the world’s most iconic artists. As we celebrate the anniversary of one of our most enduring formulas, we also wanted to celebrate our long relationship with the art world, by inviting one of Warhol’s most frequent collaborators to partner with us,” said Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s US. “We’re incredibly honored that Christopher Makos joined us for the celebration and designed the anniversary label for Blue Herbal.”

Since debuting in the early ‘60s, “the blue stuff,” as it’s known by loyal fans, has reached product icon status, generated legions of loyal celebrity fans, including Andy Warhol. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, Kiehl’s introduces a limited-edition bottle designed by renowned photographer and Andy’s friend, Christopher Makos, who captured Warhol’s essence in frequent portraits through the years.

Says Makos, about the collaboration, Andy Warhol related successful art to successful business. Kiehl’s is great to work with because they ‘get it’. I’m happy because when people ask me what I’m doing I can say, ‘I’m in cosmetics.’”

The limited-edition bottle features 18 of Christopher Makos’ iconic photos, including images that depict an homage to New York City. Since the formula first debuted in the early ‘60s, Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion has sold nearly 900 thousand bottles in the last 5 years and even found a home in the permanent archives of The Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

After a long and vigorous workout, our body is often left sore and aching thanks to pesky microcirculation. To give our sore muscles a break, products containing “cooling agents” can give you that fast relief you deserve. And although it’s not medically proven to treat swelling as a whole, it can make a huge difference when you’re reeling in pain.

“When people have leg swelling, it’s often caused by a health problem with larger vessels,” explains Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Dina D Strachan. “Yes, cooling products can produce a relieving sensation, but it seems like these products are more cosmetic or experiential. Products make all different kinds of claims, so I cannot confirm that there is a definite medical effect.”

AHAVA BSTAT

To think that a skincare brand was born out of sheer scientific discovery is unusual in the beauty world. The AHAVA Laboratories have shared their findings of skin-enriching minerals from the Dead Sea for years — and the discoveries just keep getting better. Since 1988, AHAVA has built its reputation on harnessing the power of Osmoter™ – the brand’s proprietary, balanced blend of natural Dead Sea Minerals found in all of its products — to increase skin’s vitality and enhance moisture.

Now, 26 years later, a new technology was created in Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate to deliver 3Xs more Osmoter™ to recharge, rehydrate and illuminate skin by boosting cellular turnover activity. Enhanced with Aquaporin 3 to deliver more moisture and radiance to the skin’s cells, its primer-like texture contains high levels of saline water while retaining a gel structure.

BeautyStat.com’s Founder and Cosmetic Chemist Ron Robinson reviews the AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate!
