One of my favourite about doing something like The 7 Day Mask Challenge is the fact that my skin consistently looks so fresh and clean, which is more than I could ask for; when it comes to beauty products anyways.
So this mask made it into my possession by pure fluke seeing as how I hadn’t purchase it but rather it was gifted to me. And yes, gifting me a new mask I’ve yet to try is never a bad idea. When I began researching the benefits of Life Plankton and some of the other products that it can be found in, I became eager to crack open my own Biotherm Life Plankton Mask for a go at it myself.
Incase you aren’t sure what the benefits of (Fermented) Life Plankton aren’t either, here’s a brief overview:
- Developed by Biotherm Biologists,
- Extreme regenerative properties.
Although it’s a mask my skin my not necessarily need, it definitely doesn’t harm to gain from the benefits of Life Plankton in a sense of just keeping the skin healthy and nourished. And even if you an oiler skin type, hydration won’t ever kill you.
I give you…
Here’s what the manufactures have to say…
- Hydrogel facial mask,
- Use twice-weekly when your over-scheduled skin shows up damage, appears lifeless, feels dry and tights, looks red and irritated,
- Sheet Mask inspired, Hydrogel texture wraps skin,
- Visibly brighter and dewy skin.
What I personally love most about this mask is that it’s application is not only easy, but since it’s an overnight mask it simplifies the process of the pm routine on evenings when it’s used. Bonus.
I usually use the The Body Facial Mask Brush to apply this mask, after removing my makeup and going through my evening cleansing process. I also make sure that I’ve toned my skin and applied my eye cream before applying an overnight mask, as it’s the final step in an evening routine and you want to ensure that is so when you are using one; unless instructed otherwise.
The Biotherm Life Plankton Mask has a lovely cooling sensation when it’s applied, and you can honestly feel the Hydrogel wrapping your skin as suggested. And although it tickles, it definitely feels soothing and hydrating. The great thing about this mask is that it also dries extremely quickly so you aren’t waiting and hour before you can go to sleep, which means a longer one. Another bonus.
The next day I prefer to wash my overnight masks off with an exfoliating cleanser and the one I used this morning won’t be on the market until Thursday, but I’ll be back with more about that product then. The reason for this is to ensure that you’ve gotten all of the mask residue from the one that sat wrapping your face all night off of your skin, and to make sure that any foreign debris that may have got stuck in your pores is now also long gone. The result:
I definitely recommend the Biotherm Life Plankton Mask to anyone in need of repair and revitalizing, deep hydration, extreme soothing and/or just a nice cooling mask after a day of wear-and-tear. Any skin type.
Tomorrow I’ll be back with a Multi-Mask combo with two of my personal faves, so check back after 6 pm for that post and all the luxurious details. Until then be sure to keep exploring what’s out there and let me know if you find anything worth spending some time playing around with.
Stay Calm and Mask On,
