Dermalogica is one of the best selling skin care brands in the world and is loved by both the professionals and everyday consumers worldwide. They create their products with purity and simplicity in mind, so you won't be blown away by the packaging but you will be by what's inside. The company's products only include purposeful active ingredients so you won't find any artificial fragrances or colours in their creations.
The Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque by Dermalogica has been designed for mature or prematurely aging skin. It is a face Masque that allows the skin to recover from any damage that has been caused to it, while protecting it from further damage and enabling the development of new skin cells. The product controls signs of aging, soothes the skin and calms any irritations.
The purpose of a facial masque is to give the skin and complexion a more healthy and radiant glow by nourishing and moisturising. They can hydrate and replenish dry and dull skins while balancing oily skins.
The Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is packed full of concentrated vitamins which work as antioxidants, removing free radicals and allowing the skin to regenerate and repair itself. It also hydrates, soothes and calms the skin, removing any inflammation or puffiness. The Masque also increases the elasticity of the skin and promotes the synthesis of collagen meaning your skin will look more toned and younger.
How does it work? The masque contains powerful ingredients which each serve a specific purpose for improving the skin. It is enriched with Vitamin A which is an antioxidant, and fights against those pesky free radicals by neutralising them and preventing the break down of skin cells. By doing so, it reduces any fine lines or wrinkles that you may have, making your appearance more youthful.
Vitamin C serves a similar purpose as Vitamin A, neutralising free radicals and encouraging the development of collagen which is necessary for maintaining the structure of the skin, again meaning a reduction in your fine lines and wrinkles. The increased elasticity of your skin will be repaired and the skin will be restored back to its former glory.
Vitamin E is a superhero for your skin and it's the most important antioxidant giving an improvement in its overall health. It is also an antioxidant and protects the skin from external factors such as harsh weathers and pollution. It promotes healthy skin and has some beneficial effects on scarring and strengthens the skin.
This vitamin forms an invisible barrier which prevents water from being lost from the skin. This means that the skin can maintain its natural moisture, stopping it from becoming dry and dull. It can also help the skin to regulate its production of oil to prevent your skin from looking greasy.
Vitamin F is essential fatty acids and it's needed for the healthy growth of new skin cells. It helps the cell membrane to be constructed properly, giving a suppleness to your skin.
As well as all these vitamins, the masque contains Oat Kernel which acts as an anti inflammatory and anti irritant on the skin, reducing puffiness and soreness through its calming and soothing effect. This ingredient also has a moisturising effect and prevents premature aging of the skin. The Oat Kernel reacts with the top layers of your skin and gives it an immediate tightening effect.
The Masque also contains Panthenol which is a form of Vitamin B, better known as B5. It is easily absorbed by the skin and it is has a hydrating and plumping effect. By keeping your skin highly moisturised, it means there will be a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
How do you use the product? You need to cover the face and throat area with this product thickly, being careful to avoid the eye area. After leaving the product on your skin for around 15 minutes, the masque can then be rinsed away with warm water.
It is safe to leave the masque on for longer if you feel that your skin needs it. You repeat this process once a week, but again, you can use it more often if you need to and you can afford to! The product actually just seems like you are rubbing a thick moisturiser into the skin, dispelling the images of thick clay masques that I had in my mind.
The packaging is a simple tube with a lid that clicks open and shut. You will need to spend around £25 for 75ml as this is one of the more upmarket beauty brands. The product is suitable for all skin types and can be bought from many online websites. If you like this product, then also available in the Multivitamin collection is Power firm, Power Recovery, Thermafoliant, Power Concentrate and the Hand & Nail Treatment.
The masque itself is a thick and heavy cream with a delicious but subtle fruity smell. It has a toffee caramel colour. It glides effortlessly over the skin which it's gorgeous consistency and because it's so thick, a little goes a long way which is a relief considering the price. It seems to melt into your skin and looks oily while it's on but this goes when you wash it away. You can feel it working its magic and when it washes away, your skin is soft and smooth and glowing with health.
My skin only has a few tiny lines so I pinch some of my mothers Power Recovery Masque whenever I go to visit. The product is designed for aging skin but because my diet is so poor and I never get enough sleep, my skin often looks dull and tired. This helps my complexion greatly and it never causes any spots or soreness on my sensitive skin.
My mother uses it as treat on a Sunday and leaves it on over night and she has noticed a big difference in the health and appearance of her skin. There's a big price tag on this product but as you will get big results too, then it's worth it.
