Because my dermatologist has me on an unfussy skincare regimen of mostly Cetaphil cleanser and fragrance-free SPF, I chose the mask with the most clinical-looking packaging. But not gonna lie, I was also seduced by the inclusion of 24K gold (!) promising an “opulent glow.” Before slipping on the mask I check my skin out in the mirror and notice dryness on my forehead and some redness on my cheeks—the latter from either the more arid fall weather or the prosecco and Aperol cocktails I’d just downed at lunch. The mask smells a bit yeasty and starts to tingle after five minutes on my face, with the tingling changing to more of a cooling sensation by minute nine.
After 15 minutes, I remove the mask and notice a slight plumping (in a good way) around my eyes and that the fine lines on my forehead are nearly invisible—likely the work of the hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and the 18 age-fighting neuropeptides and peptides. The next morning I notice my complexion looks more even and the dryness on my forehead is gone baby gone. Not sure if my skin looks more “opulent,” but I’d definitely shell out the 84 bucks for half a dozen of these.
