Our Review: This mask from Nanette de Gaspé is the luxury and high-tech version of Charlotte Tilbury’s much loved Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. What is incredible about this mask, is that it uses a biomimetic micro-vectorized ingredient delivery system, which allows delivers active ingredients to the skin. I received it as a gift a while ago and I love it. When I first did it, I was really surprised by how dry the sheet mask was, so much so I thought it was defective! Once applied, you have to massage your skin to activate the mask- and honestly you feel it. The first time I felt like it was actually doing something not a bad tingle, but an active feeling nonetheless. After 15 minutes, I removed it and felt my skin was dewy with a light layer of “oil” on top. My skin was glowing and more fresh after an hour, but the real effect came the next day - I noticed a difference to say the least! You can reuse the mask up to 5 times, and it’s actually advised to do it 3 days straight to really get a boost. Looking at the price now and slightly blushing (£85), I now regret using this mask as a treat rather than using it for a special event. Even though you look like Hannibal Lecter when it’s on the skin (I’ve already scared my boyfriend a few times when wearing it) and despite the hefty price…..it is still totally worth it!
For Who: This is the perfect treatment for someone who wants to take their Sunday Spa to a whole new level. I also recommend it to anyone who feels their skin dull and lifeless, as it really gives a nice colour and glow to your skin. However, don’t use it recreationally like me (if you are searching for a quick fix I recommend you opt for the Charlotte Tilbury one) but as a deeper 3 day treatment, I am sure that the amazing effect will be much more noticeable and something to prep for a special occasion.
