To ensure no contamination and proper clean application, the mask also comes with a tiny spatula. Let me tell you it really looks like you’d be digging into a cup of delicious pudding when you take out some product. The temptation to just eat it is overwhelming, but don’t do it. As I am a good product tester, I may also have eaten some at some point and no, it doesn’t taste like pudding, not even close.
The product itself is of this white jelly-like consistency. It literally melts as soon as you touch it and it’s very easy to spread. This special kind of consistency is called ‘Shape Memory Cream’ - it’s melty and firm at the same time. Also whenever you remove some product from the jar, the mask sets to an even surface again and it looks like you’ve never even taken any product out. It smells slightly of fresh sweet flowers and citrus fruits. On the skin it feels like liquid silk and it gets absorbed by your skin in minutes. For me it left a slight sticky film that I just washed off in the morning. - It’s still a mask after all. And the stickiness also comes from the nature of vitamin E.
I for one, always use it together with my Vitamin C Serum. It boosts my skin overnight and I wake up with the smoothest, most hydrated skin. (Also wrinkles don’t stand a chance.)
Vitamin E also known as tocopherol is our star ingredient in this review. Vitamin E and Vitamin C are both very strong antioxidants. And as we know, antioxidants are what keeps our skin young and healthy, far away from wrinkles and blemishes. Vitamin E is one of the most common vitamins in our diet and being deficient of it is next to impossible. From sunflower oil, avocados to popcorn, it can be found pretty much anywhere. Sources highest in Vitamin E are plant based oils like canola oil or as mentioned, sunflower oil.
Basically, it has a very weak O-H bond and just goes around throwing its H (Hydrogen Atom) at free radicals, rendering them ineffective. No damage, no harm. But that also turns the vitamin into a very unreactive molecule, but no worries as soon as it meets some Vitamin C it reverts back to it’s old stage and is good to go again! See how this works in protecting your skin?
Vitamin C being fat soluble,it is being incorporated into skin cells which are then protected by the vitamin e from any oxidative damage.
I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of this before, and if you did.. Kudos to you! In my opinion, this form of vitamin B3 should be far more popular. Although not commonly found in food, or only in trace amounts, it is very beneficial to the skin. It is used to treat acne and sometimes even to support people to get a good sleep.
Back to the skin stuff. Niacinamide possesses anti-inflammatory properties and helps to keep your skin barrier intact. Both of these things are undoubtedly beneficial to people suffering from acne or other inflammatory skin conditions.
Adenosine is abundant in your body and also very important. It’s an organic compound that is part of your cell fuel known as ATP/ADP. (I bet you’ve heard about that in biology before.) I personally like to recommend Adenosine to more mature women, because it possesses serious anti-aging and skin smoothing properties. Adenosine has proven anti-wrinkle properties, which obviously makes your skin look fresh and young. Further, it comes with anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation effects.
Have fun glowing!
