StoryDerm Stem Cell Silk Mask

I’ve been terrible with masking my face recently but after attending the #CptBloggerMeet and being given a few StoryDerm facial masks to use, I thought I better give them a go.

The one I decided to use was the Silk Mask – Stem Cell Silk Mask. Which is for anti-ageing and repair for the skin. StoryDerm

I read the instructions and it said to cleanse your face thoroughly and tone as normal then to apply the cloth to your face for 15 minutes. It doesn’t give any warnings that you might look like a complete serial killer and to tread warily around other people for their safety though. As facial masks go, its a fairly simple and clean application, you simply put the cloth with 4 holes cut out (2 for the eyes, one for the nose with a flap to cover your nose and another for your mouth) onto your face and let the magical cloth which might make you feel a little silly do the work. This mask/cloth technique has been designed to shield the skin with a protective layer while increasing the temperature of the skin to promote healing, prevent moisture escaping, nourish and soften the skin. Once the 15 minutes is up you remove the cloth/mask and let the excess moisture on your skin dry naturally.

It left the skin feeling extra smooth, not oily and it lasted for a few days with normal cleansing, toning and moisturising as normal.

The StoryDerm brand is a Korean skin care brand which is distributed in South Africa by the Cherryink Group. This mask retails for R45.

Thanks Cherryink for the lovely present, I look forward to trying my other mask in due course.

Let Your Skin Live in Harmony with Alive {Competition Closed}

Our beautiful fashion fairy friends over at Lushberry – The Online Style Destination have spoilt me with a new experience in skincare, Alive Products.

Green Envy

Green EnvyFor the past week and a bit I’ve been lucky enough to experience the Alive Bio Organic Facial Mask – Green Envy. The product is as the name suggests, green. As normal, anything that is green is good for you be in vegetables, trees, grass and even skin care. Green is better! This mask is typically for people who have excess sebum build up which results in oily or acne prone skin. The key ingredient in the mask is French Green Clay, imported from the source in France, this is the base of all the Alive products and is renowned for having healing properties. In the form of a facial mask, this French Green Clay uses it absorptive property to draw out impurities, excess oil and toxins.

Immortal Beauty

Immortal BeautyIf you are more worried about combatting the signs of ageing, then the Immortal Beauty facial mask is more up your street, the key ingredient in this mask is French Red Clay which contains iron oxides to smoothe, soften, lighten and refine the grain of your skin resulting in a painless facelift in a tub. Essential oils are also used to regenerate skin cells.

For the best results the masks should be applied to the face with a mask brush and left for 15 minutes or until the clay has dried and then removed with warm water, followed by your every day/evening moisturiser. You can use the facial masks daily on problematic areas or use weekly as part of your at-home facials.

Immediately, after first use I noticed that my skin felt smoother, although you may experience a slight redness due to the mask stimulating blood flow beneath the surface of the skin to eliminate impurities, excess oil and toxins (I did not, which is surprising as my skin can red faster than a Ferrari can go from 0-100km per hour).

If you are interested in trying out the Alive products, find them here at Lushberry for R129,00 each.
