Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask


I love 'treatments' from scrubs, serums, peels and masks, I'll try them all. Masks especially, though. There is just something about the whole process of a mask that is both rewarding and relaxing. Lately, I've been giving a lot of love to a mask that I've had for some time, but never really got in the habit of using: Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask*.





'An oasis of comfort for devitalized skin. This soothing formula restores an ideal moisture balance to dry, dehydrated skin in just 5-10 minutes. Katafray Bark extract attracts moisture to skin—then seals it in to smooth fine lines and restore a soft, supple texture. Sorbier Tree Bud stimulates micro-circulation, boosting cellular renewal for a healthy-looking glow. All climates' - Clarins

This mask may look like your basic moisturizer, but it acts like moisturizer on steroids. One application makes my usually dry skin feel amazing! The boost of hydration improves the overall texture of my skin and it even seems to brighten the appearance. Who doesn't love that? Unlike many masks, this cream formula doesn't dry. You apply it for 5-10 minutes and simply wipe it off with a dry cloth. It's gentle enough that you can use it as often as needed, but I do find that the results last for a few days.

There are a few brands with similar products (Avene, Origins...), I've used a few of them, and honestly, they all work as well as HydraQuench, but it is a must have if you are prone to dehydrated skin and a very nice treat for skin that has to suffer through a long, cold winter. Have you tried this mask? Thoughts?
