Face masks are like a Control-Alt-Delete keystroke for whatever issue is vexing your skin. For example, there’s the Bioxidea Miracle 24 Mask when you want the bouncy, velvety-soft skin of a 12-month-old; Eve Lom Rescue Mask when you’re in need of some surface smoothing and the Incredible Shrinking Pores effect; and the Fresh Honey Mask when your winter-chapped skin could use some soothing TLC. Today we're pleased to announce the latest addition to our mask artillery: the pre-party skin-rejuvenating Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, “for instant glow.”
“Instant” is a term we usually reserve for quick-fixing makeup and those Starbucks coffee sachets, but after 20-30 minutes smothered in Harper’s pink jelly-like concoction, you'll have the tightened and plumped aura of a person who, say, drinks water, does cardio, and nourishes themselves on more than just the three C’s of office edibles (coffee, cupcakes, and chips). The thick blend of pink clay, elasticizing beet extract, hydrating aloe vera, and redness-reducing, inflammation-deflating, glow-giving white willow extract tightens on your skin to an ultra-thin film, reminding your face what it feels like to be young and alert.
The promised "glow" is subtle but definite. Plus, you'll have a spare half-hour to take a bath, de-install your morning homage to Pistoletto’s Venus of the Rags, or even to give yourself a bold red manicure. Then simply Embryolisse your face, dab some Eight Hour Cream on your lips, and head out for the night.
