The A+ Mask for Emergency Recovery⚠️| Dermalogica Multivitamin Mask
Sometimes I just accidentally stay up till 3…..and wake up with really bloated and angry skin. This is my go-to mask after staying up late!
💊🍊 Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque by Dermalogica 💊🍊
- This mask is designed for “stressed” skin! Check out this section from the Dermalogica website that breaks down the powerful ingredients:
Powerful, concentrated vitamins A, C and E, and Linoleic Acid help restore skin showing signs of damage and aging while enhancing barrier properties. Antioxidant vitamins C and E help shield skin from Reactive Oxygen Species (free radicals). Nutrient-rich Algae Extract helps moisturize and soften skin while Pro-Vitamin B5 helps nourish damaged skin. Botanical extracts of Licorice, Comfrey and Burdock soothe and calm skin while increasing resilience.
💊🍊 The Basics 💊🍊
-Texture: Light yellow thick cream
-Scent: Slight medicinal scent (no artificial fragrances or colors)
-Size & price: $59 for 2.5oz
🕒I use this after I wash my face in the morning as a “wake up” mask. It only needs 10-15 minutes so I can just go make coffee and make good use of my time. I use this mask to target dullness and redness.
🌝Application - I like to apply till it’s at least 50% opaque. An overly thin layer can really affect the results (I’ve done it, not worth it)
💆♀️Sensation - There is almost no particular sensation after I apply this mask. If I have REALLY dehydrated parts it stings for a little bit then the sensation goes away
🥕Wear - The mask turns orange after 15 minutes (the ingredients oxidizing to doing it’s job) but doesn’t dry down or anything.
🧼After - Wash off with warm water (it takes some effort to wash off) and dry face. My face feels a lot more supple, sensitive areas feel drastically soothed (cheek and forehead), dull areas are brightened (around nose and mouth). Makeup applies smoother on top and any breakouts do not feel irritated.
⚠️Wear sunscreen after using vitamin-heavy skincare because SPF is crucial to preserving the benefits of antioxidants like Vitamin C.
I highly recommend this to people who need an emergency recovery mask. It is a bit pricey but I only use it once a week at most, and the results are 100% worth it to me. They do sell a 0.5oz version for $15 on the website if you want to try it out before investing in the full size. But ultimately for me, having a good sleeping schedule and drinking lots of water beats any skincare.
