optiphi Hydra-Derm HA Masque (R652)
What they say: Reinstate skin moisture with this hydrating hyaluronic acid active-complex masque. It actively targets the signs of aging by tightening, lifting and promoting skin plumping. Long lasting moisture on the skin requires a superior mixture of hyaluronic acid & Imperata Cylindrica extract, enabling up to 24 hours of moisturisation.
Wrinkles are reduced and skin firmness and elasticity is improved with Dipeptide-1, Oligopeptide & Peptide-7 as collagen and elastin are protected and repaired to support the skin structure.
What I say: My name is Emmy, and I’m a hyaluronic acid junkie. I look for it in everything, so when this masque landed on my desk, I immediately applied it.
As I’m sure most of you know, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it one of (if not THE) best hydrator there is in skincare. You can have a relatively small amount in a product and see serious results. As it holds water, it means that your skin is instantly hydrated, but stays that way for ages, too.
This mask is without a doubt going to be a constant companion to me through winter, as it doesn’t make my skin break out, and doesn’t leave a slimy residue like some moisturising masks. I apply it and leave it on, as I find it absorbs after about half an hour anyway. But if you just want to use it as a mask, you can rinse it off after 20 minutes for soft, supple skin.
