This is such an interesting mask that utilises some great technology to hydrate and invigorate the skin. With the 111Skin CO2 Crystallising Energy Mask, you are really giving your skin life and bounce.
The 111Skin CO2 Crystallising Energy Mask* (£125 from 111Skin) is no doubt a pricey purchase – working out at £25 per treatment. However, it has such innovative technology behind it, and it produces such great results, that it does seem worth it to me – if you consider the cost of in-clinic facials.
A box contains 5 treatments, along with a spatula and mixing bowl. Each treatment consists of two sachets – the mask and the activator – that you mix together to create the paste that you will apply generously to your whole face. It has a light citrus fruit scent and is delightfully cooling.
Let’s get into the science – when you mix the two sachets together, you are creating Carbonic Acid (carbon dioxcide in water). When you apply this to the skin, the CO2 penetrates your skin’s dermis. The result of this is that your body flushes this excess CO2 away with oxygen; giving your skin life – increased blood circulation, increased cell turnover (including collagen and elastin), stimulating the complexion.
The surge of this activity on the skin also allows the key ingredients in the mask to penetrate deeply into the skin – ingredients such as soothing Aloe, brightening Pueraria Thunbergiana Root, nourishing Chlorella vulgaris, and a unique Triple Ceramide Complex to hydrate and protect the skin. This ingredient penetration is achieved even more effectively by the fact that the mask crystallises as it dries – forming a protective barrier that lets the products work on your skin underneath. You wear this mask on your face for 40 minutes before dissolving it with warm water or peeling off the rubber mask that it’s become.
This product is literally like a facial in a packet – it leaves your skin stimulated, brighter, plumper and smoother. A great one to use before important events.
