Product Review: Purederm Nutritive firming Hydro Pure Gel Mask

we all love taking some time off to pamper ourselves, right? we go to the derma, spa, nail or hair salons whenever we feel like we need to take a break and give ourselves a bit of TLC we deserve. if only we have more time to do so, i bet nobody will ever get or look stressed ever again! but of course, we don't have as much time as we want to but thanks to DIY stuff for almost anything, we can do our pampering sessions right in the comfort of our home!

a month ago, i got some stuff from Purederm as gifts. i've always loved their products, most especially their wet facial tissues for acne-prone skin. when i got the items, i was just too excited to use this mask as i was already feeling all stressed and my skin already looks dull.


Purederm Nutritive Firming Hydro Pure Gel Mask

a gentle hydrogel mask infused with high-moisturizing ingredients that penetrate deeply into skin to deliver their benefits. you will notice the absorption of the active ingredients, as the mask becomes thinner with time. this rich, invigorating mask enhanced with Caviar Extract, Green Tea Extract and Vitamin E, visibly nourishes, lifts and firms to bring your skin back into youth. it leaves you looking and feeling energized for the day ahead!

how to use
1. thoroughly clean and dry face
2. open the packet and take out the upper and lower sheets. remove the plastic from both sides of the sheets
3. apply the upper and lower sheets onto the face and smooth out any air bubbles with fingers
4. wear the mask for 20-30 minutes and peel off slowly from the edges. gently massage remaining essence into the skin

i had a hard time keeping the mask on my face for i was walking around and doing chores. i suggest you just lay down and relax ^_^

looking closely, you can see that the sheet is rich with different essences

i let the mask stay on my face for more than 30 minutes then massaged my skin with the remaining moisture. i immediately felt that my skin got a lot smoother. after rinsing, my face felt moisturized...no tightness at all! i didn't put anything on after. X was still here when i used it i was surprised when he said, "what did you do? your face looks brighter." my face indeed felt a whole lot cleaner, looked brighter and more supple.

i felt a bit of itchiness after putting the mask on. i think it was because i was on Obagi and my skin tends to be a lot more sensitive. remember that Obagi has hydroquinone and i also use tretinoin with it. but the itchiness went away in a few minutes. i didn't have any red patches (sign of allergy) after i rinsed so i'm sure my skin's fine :)

the mask is also slimy and it would be hard keeping it on the face if you are moving around. be sure to just sit still or better yet, just lay down and relax. besides, you are trying to de-stress here ^_^

priced at Php199.75, this is a lot cheaper than going to your facialist or derma. but of course, better to seek professional help for more serious concerns.

cautions
1. avoid using on blemishes, pimples, irritated or sun-burnt skin
2. stop using and ask a doctor if skin becomes red, swollen, itchy during use and if above symptoms persist after use
3. keep out of eyes. if eye contact occurs, rinse with water
4. avoid using on skin which is sensitive to bandages or tapes
5. avoid storing under direct sunlight or high and low temperature. keep away from the reach of children. to prevent dryness, use mask at once after opening pouch.

What would make this even better is if I could have someone make it for me and then apply it to my face. That would really up the relaxation factor.I have very sensitive skin and would love to try this. Going to pin it!Peach Facial Mask Also Beneficial for Skin
