This week, I would like to introduce two mask products, one from Jurlique and the other from Eve Lom, that serve the two important purposes of Recover and Rescue.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask (S$110 for 100ml)

Newly launched in August as an addition to the wildly popular Herbal Recovery range, this mask promises to smooth and hydrate your skin in 10 minutes. A translucent gel with white Vitamin E beads, the product is infused with botanicals such as Ginseng root, aloe vera and rose hip oil to protect your skin from aging. When spreading the mask on your skin, make sure you burst the tiny white beads to release the Vitamin E extract, which not only protects the skin from sun damage, but also have strong soothing properties.

The mask is very lightweight and so easily absorbed that one may easily forget to wipe off the residue after application. Coupled with the pleasant scent, this mask is a pampering treat for the skin. After about 10 minutes, remember to clean off the mask with a damp cloth or facial cotton.

I have been using this once a week (Jurlique recommends twice a week) and my skin looked instantly more radiant, smooth and supple after use. Jurlique is known for using natural ingredients – there were plant-based alcohol in this product – and my skin did not suffer from any irritation from the mask. A tube of 100ml product could last you for many months and if you are looking for a mild mask that provides hydration and sustenance for your sensitive skin, this is definitely something you should check out.

Eve Lom Rescue Mask (S$75 for 50ml, S$120 for 100ml at Escentials)

Eve Lom’s Rescue Mask is a traditional kaolin clay mask with tiny granules which look like oatmeal that helps in exfoliation. A warning to all, this product has an intoxicating smell that resembles Chinese medicine. Therefore, for the skincare snobs out there who are intolerant towards less-than-pleasant-smelling offerings, this is clearly not a mask that you will be interested in.

Application is easy, just spread the formula on your skin and leave it on for about 20 minutes, or when you feel the mask all dried up. In term of removal, Eve Lom encourages you to rub the hardened mask off first in an upward motion and then remove the residue with a muslin cloth.

This mask does a good job in deep pore cleansing and leaves your skin smooth and silky. I enjoy using it (despite the smell) but I do find the product a tad expensive, given that there are other decent clay masks in the market retailing at lower price range.

本周为大家介绍两样面膜产品-第一个来自JurliqueHerbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask, 只需10分钟便能够令肌肤水凝饱满,亮丽光泽。Jurlique的产品含有天然成分,适合敏感性肌肤使用。该品牌建议大家一周使用这面膜两次。另一方面,本人也使用了Eve Lom Rescue Mask。如一般高岭土面膜,这产品能够深入毛孔,清洁肌肤。虽然有效,这产品有个刺鼻的怪味,不是人人能够接受。
