Eight minutes had past, and The Beauty Bug didn’t want to take this mask off. The directions on the package instruct the user to apply, then rest for eight minutes. And you can’t help but rest when this is on your face. It’s instant relaxation and refreshment – just the luxury and indulgence that you would expect from La Mer.
New this month, The La Mer Hydrating Facial is a two-zoned cotton mask saturated with hydrators, anti-agers, and energizers. This trio packs a mean, ultra-moisturizing punch to awaken skin. Without getting too scientific, ingredients include a special blend of exotic green algae from far away lands that soak skin with a surge of moisture, marine plant algae which helps to diminish discoloration and the visible signs of aging, melon and avocado plant extracts that work to improve skin texture, and tourmaline (yes, the same precious stone that’s ground into a fine powder and infused into the ceramic plates of irons) embedded into the cotton to crank the molecules into high gear.
The morning after The Beauty Bug applied the mask, Her skin was unheard-of-soft.
This mask is nearly perfect – it renews skin and provides a resilient healthy glow, the two pieces make for an easy, quick application (no awkward or clumsy maneuvering to attempt to get it to cover your whole face), it leaves a generous amount of the treatment behind, and it provides the ultimate at home facial experience. The Beauty Bug just wishes that single masks were available for purchase. Six applications will set you back $250.
The Hydrating Facial is currently available at select Saks Fifth Avenue locations, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and www.lamer.com.
