Quick Review: While nothing can get rid of already sagging skin, La Mer The Lifting and Firming Mask delivers a more glowing, youthful complexion and what I swear is a more contoured appearance.
As I inevitably (and gracefully I hope) start to age, the words “lifting” and “firming” always catch my attention – as do the words “La Mer”. As usual, the La Mer Lifting and Firming Mask lives up to expectation, delivering better skin and an elevated experience all around.
Still, let’s be honest. If your face has already started to go South, expecting any topical cream, serum or mask to have a miraculous effect on your skin is an unrealistic expectation. That doesn’t stop this amazing, luxurious “sleeping mask” from delivering! Perhaps the overall effect is temporary (using it every other night is recommended) and it didn’t get rid of the start of my jowls (albeit slight), but the overall effect is visible and noteworthy.
SLEEPING MASK? Like BB Creams, the Sleeping Mask concept is decidedly Asian. They have steadily grown in popularity and now they are commonplace in any respectable skin care line. Essentially it’s a step used toward the end of your routine to seal in benefits and create a breathable cocoon for skin to best utilize its repair cycle. All you do is apply it after your regular serum and in this case, apply your moisturizer over it (I just apply a little cream over my driest areas). While this isn’t marketed as a sleeping mask – it is a mask you can well, sleep in. I find that this application technique delivers the best results.
The cream itself is delivered in a gorgeous La Mer jar and comes with a high quality synthetic brush to aid application (see above). It has a gel-cream texture that melts into skin, remains fluid enough to facilitate massage, but vanishes into the skin after a few minutes. It has the signature La Mer fresh scent but is not over powering. Even on nights that I do not use the full application, I’ve been using a tiny bit to massage into my brow bone and tops of my cheekbones.
The effects of the La Mer The Lifting and Firming Mask are instant and cumulative. Intensely hydrating, it worked well after the La Mer Treatment Lotion ($125) at night or immediately after a cleansing clay based mask (I use Perricone Chloro Plasma which is genius). I’m not sure how long the effects last – but when used regularly (I try to use it at least every other day) you will definitely notice a more contoured appearance.
