When I was first introduced to British spa and skin care brand, Elemis, I thought it was mainly anti-ageing products. In other words, I did not think I would have any use for it. After all, given my super-power anti-ageing genes, I was wrinkle-free and apparently looked 8 years younger. Nevertheless, I tried out the Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing products and found my face nicely cleansed and naturally sweet-smelling. My favourite was the Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Gel Mask.
It is meant to:
- smooth out the skin surface
- target blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture
- make the skin shine-free
The truth is, this is what so many other natural (and unnatural) skin products say they will do for you. They’re all more or less right. So why should you consider this particular product?
Because it’s a cooling gel mask!
This is what you should be bouncing out of your bed to on a Saturday morning. It doesn’t matter if you’re still half-asleep. Apply a thin to generous layer of gel on your face and leave it on for 8-10 minutes. (I don’t stare at a clock waiting for 10 minutes to go by. I wait until I feel my face starts tingling as if there’s peppermint or tea tree oil on.) Then wash off with warm water. The tingling sensation doesn’t go away and now you feel wide awake!
This product may be used twice a week so choose a week day (maybe Wednesday?) and make it feel like a Saturday.
