Ren’s Skincare Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask
Just exactly what every gal needs before a big showing, be that the Met Gala (we’re not going to shut up about it until it’s over and we’ve seen every last gown) or a first/second/sixtieth date with a fella you know deserves some special treatment. And he better deserve it. Because this is going to be your best you. You but glowy. Refreshed and renewed. Like you’ve just come from a invigorating, happy-making dip in the Mediterranean. Except this Mediterranean dip also reduced the appearance of fine lines and drastically improves skin tone.
Maybe that’s why it was just awarded “Best for Instant Brightening” by Martha Stewart Weddings, Big-Day Beauty Award 2012. Or why it was InStyle’s “Best Radiance Mask.” Here’s what the experts had to say:
"Think of this as a speed facial: With a potent combination of glycolic, lactic and fruit acids, this tingly mask can get you glowing in just 10 minutes." - InStyle
It’s always a leap, these masks, especially for folks with sensitive skin. This one will be very, very kind to you. But do your research, read the reviews. You’re guaranteed to see a few words over and over: “clarified,” “smoother,” “brighter,” “gentle,” “potent.” Just to name a few. It won’t aggravate, just invigorate.
Oh, and it’s fruity!
So, wrinkles. We’ve been thinking about them a lot lately. Not in a mopey way, but a realistic way.
And before we go any further, let’s be clear: wrinkles can be beautiful.
Is it so wrong to admit, though, that certain types of wrinkles are perhaps more beautiful than others? The smiling kind, for instance. The “I’ve had a full and happy life” kind. Sleep wrinkles, on the other hand, not as much.
This is where silk pillowcases come in. We’ve got a great, multitasking one: BeautyZZZ Silk Pillowcases. They’re designed to make your beauty routine more effective, allowing your skin and hair to maintain their natural moisture (or the moisturizers and serums you’ve just applied) in a way that cotton can’t. There’s a science to it. Breathable, gentle. Your skin, rather than smushed into a cotton pillowcase while you sleep, will glide, lightly resting on the surface. And you’ll wake up crease-free.
Bonus: Beautyzzz are made of finely spun silk, free of chemicals and artificial colors, and can help sooth even the most sensitive skin (including those suffering from eczema).
A little bit from the authorities, should you want further proof:
On refinery29.com just yesterday, having a casual evening browse, we happened to stumble upon skincare guru Gina Mari support of silk:
Her Number One Tip:
"Even the most diligent skincare devotee can’t avoid the creases and lines that result from sleeping on your frontside. And silk pillowcases are much better than cotton as they provide 18 essential amino acids, are naturally hypoallergenic, inhospitable to dust mites and other allergens, and protect hair from breakage.
And then there’s Rachel Zoe, professing her love of BeautyZZZ’s silk pillowcases in a Zoe Report:
"a recent find that is the key to true beauty sleep…Designed to enhance your skin’s overall fabulousness—allowing your pre-bedtime products to absorb into your skin…It even maintains your blowouts, so say goodbye to bed head!"
There you have it. Silk pillowcases really do make for silky hair and silky skin. It’s time you finally got your beauty sleep, no?
