FACE MASK FRIDAY: 111SKIN MESO INFUSION HYALURONIC ACID & VITAMIN C MICRO MASK
111SKIN is a luxury skincare brand by Dr Yannis Alexandrides of Harley Street. The new 111SKIN Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Mirco Mask* (£100 for 4-pack from SpaceNK) is really unique. It's an at-home alternative to clinical Meso Therapy (the injection of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C straight into the skin with needles) and it's basically as close as you can get to the expensive treatment without going into a clinic.
The reason people get Meso Therapy is to increase the skin's hydration levels, plump and fill lines and wrinkles, boost collagen levels and to even the complexion. Dr Alexandrides has designed these masks to do as close to the same thing as is possible at home, without as many as 50 direct injections into the skin in his clinic. To do this, he designed the masks with patented micro droplet technology to dispense the potent ingredients into the skin by melting into it on contact. You can see all the tiny droplets on the surface of the masks when you remove them from the packaging.
The masks have 95.5% Hyaluronic Acid and 4.5% Pure Vitamin C. You apply them to the targeted area (under eyes, crows feet, frown lines or mouth lines) for 40 minutes at least once per week. I've been using the masks for a month now (once per week) on my under-eye area only, as in the last 6 months I've started to notice fine lines and creasing here so I'm trying to keep this at bay. Imediately after using these masks the area under my eyes is a lot smoother, softer and uniform in texture. They also look a lot brighter too. Over the month I've definitely noticed these lines decreasing and the area remaining a lot smoother and rested looking.
There's no getting away from the fact that these are very expensive masks, but if you are really concerned by lines on your face, I'd definitely say they are worth trying before taking any more drastic steps. If you love them though, it would be an expensive habit to keep up and I don't think my fine lines warrant the expense.
Do you like the look of these?
