Repêchage ~ NEW Biolight Brightening Miracle Mask

Repêchage NEW Biolight Brightening Miracle Mask

Gentle Exfoliation Reveals a Luminous Complexion. This brightening, radiance-boosting mask targets discolouration and helps even skin tone. Our proprietary Laminaria Complex rejuvenates skin with two select EcoCert Seaweeds combined with Willow Bark, Goto Kola and Liquorice Extracts to reveal a more luminous complexion. Glycolic and Kojic acid combine to target discolouration and reveal a glow that lasts. Just look in the mirror and see the difference.

It's made with:

Laminaria Digitata & Ascophyllum Nodosum – Sea Plants
Our proprietary blend of these EcoCert seaweeds provides hydrating, nourishing, and anti-oxidant properties. Natural sources of 12 vitamins including B12, C, E, K and Beta Carotene, 18 amino acids, and 42 trace elements. Essential fatty acids help maintain the skin barrier while Alginic Acid – a polysaccharide – helps to lock moisture into the skin. Known to help increase cell proliferation.

Hexapeptide 2 - A fast-acting skin-brightening peptide which acts as an antagonist to MSH, binding to its receptors, thereby decreasing melanin synthesis.

Glycolic acid - Glycolic acid is proven to improve the skin's appearance and texture. Glycolic acid reacts to the skin weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold the dead skin cells together. This intense exfoliation allows younger, brighter looking skin to be revealed.

Kojic Acid - Derived from a variety of fungi, this ingredient inhibits melanogenisis by chelating the copper bound to tyrosinase. It is able to help decrease the number of melanosomes and dendrites thus helping to treat hyper-pigmentation.

Liquorice root - Extract that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Willow Bark Extract - Extracted from the white willow tree (Salix Alba). Helps with mild exfoliation of dead skin cells to reveal a more youthful complexion.

Goto Kola - A natural plant known to help increase collagen growth and synthesis and promote connective tissue vascularization. It has been found to increase tensile strength of skin and promote rapid healing of skin. Goto Kola has been found to stimulate dermal fibroblasts (connective tissue forming cells).

I was kindly sent a Biolight Brightening Miracle Mask for myself (free of charge) to try out. I suffer from really dry skin on my face these days and it seems to be getting worse as I get older. I used to have perfect skin, never really suffered with spots or dryness until now. Three kids later and just passed the big 30 - my skin is worse than it has ever been so when I received the Email about this new exciting facial mask, I was really excited to try it out. It's quite a pricey product at £34.50 for a 2oz/59g tube so I was dying to find out just how good it really is.

It's quite a thin texture as you can see from the picture above. It's a pale green in colour and doesn't really smell of anything which was a good thing for me, as strong smelling masks tend to put me off seeing as I need to put it real close to my nose. I applied a thin layer all over my face and let to dry for 7 - 10 minutes as suggested on the box. The sensations were very cooling but also very nice. I could feel my face getting a little tighter as it dried but not very tight so that it was uncomfortable. It dried really easily and really quickly. After the 10 minutes it was completely dry and ready to wash off with warm water. The mask was dry but not crispy or flaky, it was quite nice. It made my skin feel pleasantly taught but not so tight that it would crack if I smiled. It washed off easily using just warm water, no scrubbing or hard work. It just simply softened and washed away leaving my skin feeling instantly Amazing! My skin was so soft I actually sat there stroking my face! Wow what a wonderful feeling, my skin felt so smooth and soft. It really was lovely, I can't wait to use it again and again and again. I think I've fallen completely in love with it! I've not normally been one for using face masks as they normally don't make my skin feel any different and can often just dry out my skin but this one is so different. It's fantastic, my skin still felt soft even hours after using it.
