One month later my lower cheeks – chin area is still recovering from over-, over-, overindulging at Christmas. Multiply that with a bout of stress at work, add in everyday environmental pollution and office heating systems, and you can guess what I’m struggling with at the moment. As with all living things, oxygen is the number one thing our skin craves, even more than cleansing, a balanced diet or keeping those hydration levels up. Vital as oxygen is, skin cells wouldn’t even last 2 – 3 minutes, and Filorga caters to that need.
Bringing a new boost of oxygen to my routine is the Filorga Scrub & Mask Reoxygenating Exfoliating Mask, new in it’s approach and new in it’s application. Softly massaged into dry skin, the super heated perlite particles dissolves dead skin cells, while the enzymatic compound provides a gentle exfoliation needed to completely clean up your upper skin layers. After all that hard work, it’s time to play as the mask further develops on your skin. A minute or so later, the formula will start bubbling and frothing away, a c lear indicator that the oxygenation is at full force, injecting and locking in oxygen where needed (and by the feel of it, my skin needs a whooooole lot of it). Filorga’s star ingredient, their famed regenerative NCTF complex, adds in it’s two anti-ageing pennies as well, and by the time the mousse stops foaming, the mask has done it’s business and it’s ready to be rinsed off. This maybe is a bit trickier, as the mask is somewhat sticky, so a good wash or a hop in the shower might be needed. But, no worries, the result is more than worth it. Clear, refreshed bright and healthy looking skin awaits thee… As with all mechanical scrubs, my cheeks are left looking a shade of crimson, but this is nothing a sweet layer of my beloved Avène Soothing Moisture Mask can’t fix.
Extra points for the packaging, the airtight container is topped off with a pump system, allowing you to control just how much you want to use. A mid-winter patching up, an after-party booster or a sheer dose of oxygen, there’s nothing on this menu the Filorga Scrub & Mask Reoxygenating Exfoliating Mask can’t offer.
