I am a facial mask fanatic. I just love them. From time to time, I dabble in the single-use paper or fiber masks, but I really prefer the masks that I apply to my face straight out of the tube or jar. For one thing, if it’s a mask I love, I don’t want to have to go out and buy another one. Plus, I vastly prefer the feel of a cream or gel mask rather than wet paper on my face! 😆
A couple of weeks ago, I received StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
The Instant Revitalizing Mask was developed to restore a more even skin tone and give an instant brightening to the skin. As you know, my quest is to fade my spots and regain a more even skin tone. The mask contains the patented complex, NIA-114, developed by StriVectin that is the cornerstone of so many of their products. NIA-114 is a form of niacin called nicotinic acid that strengthens the skin barrier, hydrates skin, and boosts the effectiveness of AHAs as they revitalize.
In consumer testing, after 4 weeks of regular use, the vast majority of participants in the study reported brighter skin tone, more even skin tone and revitalized looking skin. I haven’t been using the product for a month yet, but my skin looks fresher and brighter immediately after use. I am trying to gather as many “skin tone evening” products into my regimen as I can to work on fading my dark spots!
StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask is such a breeze to use. That’s one reason why I have no problem using it every other night after I take off my makeup at night. I just squeeze the tube, and apply a thin layer to my clean, dry face. The directions say to leave it on till it’s dry or for 15 minutes. Frankly, on me, it dries in less than 2 minutes so I leave it on for a while. I don’t have any amusing selfies of me wearing it because the cream that looks white coming out of the tube turns clear on my face in spite of the white clay in the formula. So it doesn’t look like I’m wearing a mask at all. Next, I rinse it off with lukewarm water and I’m good to go on with my skincare regimen.
The mask isn’t at all drying. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on my sensitive skin. No tingling, no nothing. Using it every other day is perfect. If you use it in the morning before work or in the evening before you’re going out, it can definitely liven up the look of your skin.
StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask contains 3 oz., and it is priced at $62. There’s a lot in the tube, covering my face requires just a little bit, so it’ll last a long time. It’s made in the U.S. It’s available on the StriVectin website, at Ulta, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, QVC and other fine retailers.
