As an esthetician, this is one of my top recommended products. Easy, effective exfoliation. Not too harsh but glycolics tend to be drying so definitely put on a moisturizer, serum afterwards.
I personally have acne-prone, sensitive and dry skin, using this a few times a week works perfectly. I apply it and let it sit on for 10-15 minutes and then gently scrub it in.
I like the ingredients but hate the rough pieces in this mask. I also wish it had less glycolic acid and more lactic. Glycolic can be very irritating especially when in a strong exfoliating mask like this one. Too strong and breaks my skin out.
Love this mask! It will exfoliate and refresh your skin. One use makes a huge difference. My facialist told me that you can layer this with the Hydrating Enzyme Mask, which I tried (put the enzyme mask on first). Leave them both on for 20 minutes (less if your skin is very sensitive and/or not used to heavier exfoliation). Oh yes...it works beautifully. Highly recommend for anyone who has dull, tired, congested skin and wants to look all bright, soft, and dewy.
Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque
My skin type is normal, if I don't take care of it can feel dry.
Truthfully I wasn't looking for a mask as I make my own yogurt mask that is divine, but this was included in the Ageless trial size skin care kit I bought.
Here's my review:
Texture: Medium thickness and creamy with some textured granules. While you apply it you can feel a slight tingly sensation as the ingredients are 'active.'
Application: Smooths easily over skin, it has a great consistency so it is not runny like other masques. Of course, I apply with fingers. In the instructions it says, apply 1-3 times per week.
Odor: It does have a scent which is minty or menthol. The scent leaves once you wash the masque off.
Packaging: In a plastic tube.
Cost: High end.
Bought at: OneSkinandBody.com
Finish/Performance: My skin feels both cleansed, exfoliated and nourished. I do think you have to regulate how often you use this as the ingredients are so active. It claims, "a lightening blend diminishes brown spots."
My rating scale is: EXCELLENT, GOOD, FAIR AND POOR
Overall rating for this product: EXCELLENT.
I have been using the product (along with the cleanser, serum, and the moisturizer in the Image Ageless line) for about two weeks. While I already have good skin, I absolutely see an improvement in skin tone and texture.
In the packaging it says, "This is truly a home mini-peel!" I agree. Yes it is an investment but this one is worth it.
I use this for a few days post-peel in the shower to exfoliate the peeling skin off. Works great & I like the smell too even though it's weird.
I was introduced to image skincare though my doctors office. I love these products. I find this product to be hardworking mask that delivers. All of these products deliver bang for the buck. I used to use LaMer and SkinMedica and I find that this line is substantially cheaper. For years I have had monthly paramedical facials this product actually leaves my skin feeling like I just left my doctor's office.
I am starting to use more of the Image Skin Care line after I tried the scrub. Love the scrub. My skin feels smoother than with any at-home scrubs that I've tried (and I've tried a ton). You don't need to use too much, so one tube will last quite a while.
I actually have this mask on right now as I am writing (dorky I know) The mask is a great combination of AHAs, bearberry extract (a natural lightener), with some manual exfoliation thrown in as well. I like to use it with a layer of hydrating enzyme mask on top to really exfoliate.
Best mask EVER! I was using the Vital C mask and thought I wondered how the other Image products are. I went on there website and read the description info for this resurfacing mask and had to buy it. I was NOT disappointed. Leave this on for 30 minutes then wet hands massage for a minute and my skin has never looked or felt better. For $26 you can't beat this product. I am really picky and tried a lot of products and never found a product that works as well as this mask does.
I think I just talked myself into trying the eye cream :)
Just started using this Image product, but loving it so far. It really does leave my skin feeling silky smooth and I can tell a difference the next day when I put on makeup. I am an esthetician so I sample tons of products this one is a keeper.
