Product Review: Prescriptives Intensive Rebuilding Deep Hydrating Mask

The other night my skin was feeling and looking especially dry, so I thought it was an ideal time for an at-home mini facial. I washed, cleansed, gently exfoliated, and then I applied my new Prescriptives Intensive Rebuilding Deep Hydrating Mask ($28). Since the mask is a little unusual, I'd like to share my experience with you.

The directions say to leave it on for 15 minutes, and in this time it never hardens. The mask smells clean, and its gel-like texture makes applying it very simple.

It doesn't tingle, feel cool, or heat up, so it's a good choice if your skin is sensitive. When it came time for removal, I noticed that it hadn't all absorbed and that there was a sticky, filmy layer left over. The box said to tissue off the mask, but I needed to wash my face with water and a light soap to remove all of the residue.

The immediate result was smoother and softer skin, and the next day I noticed that my skin tone was more even. Additionally, the dryness was gone (but I can't give the mask full credit, since I did also exfoliate).

I would confidently recommend this to someone who doesn't use a night cream, a facial oil, or anything extra to quench thirsty skin. It is so gentle that I can't imagine it would block pores if used only twice a week. Plus, the fact that you don't have to endure any of that awkward typical mask stiffness makes this a great choice.

Hmmm I doubt I'd use this - I've got oily skin and don't usually have problems with moisturizing...

Bella..just Kevin....I have been wondering since I spend a lot of time on my motorcycle(magic carpet) If I should be wearing some kind of moisturizer, I use no night creams, facial oil or goo of any kind. I don't wear a helmet so the wind is constantly on my face and I would like to maintain my god given youthful look. I do use chapstick on the bike so there is no need to drag me into the Lipstick Jungle. Thank You KKAK....Kevin

I'm sure this mask wouldn't clog your pores even if you used it daily. In skin care there are two words that often times get used interchangable but they are totally different.... dry and dehydrated. Masks made for dry skin are usually oil based and can cause breakout if used on skin that doesn't need anymore oil. Masks made for hydration, like this one, usually have ingredients like hylauronic acid that helps promote water and mositure penetration to the skin. These masks are almost always gel based and can really be used by ANYONE because EVERYONE has a bit of dehydration even if they get their 8 glasses a day. They don't clog pores because there is no oil in the mask to clog.

This mask sounds like it would be great as you did it Bella after exfoliation. I may have to try this one.
