I’ve seen so many rave reviews about local brand Lumi Glo so was delighted to be sent one of their most talked-about products recently: The Hydration Booster face mask. Sunday held zip, zero plans for me (apart from soaking up as much of the winter sun as possible), so a little TLC session was definitely in order. Here’s what I thought of The Hydration Booster by Lumi Glo:
I was recently treated to a glorious facial and body massage at Gingerlily spa in Plumstead, by friends who decided a pampering day was just what I needed. Two weeks later and thanks to the air-con at work blasting warm air all day, my skin was back to normal i.e. really, really dry! I drink two litres of water and regularly spritz my face with my handy bottle of Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water, but I still struggle with dryness. If anyone has tips on how to keep hydrated under extreme air-con conditions please share them with me. Anyways, back to my mask!
When skin feels dehydrated and in need of a pick-me-up, nutrition-packed sheet masks really come to the rescue. Not only are they hassle-free, and quick to use, but they prevent the evaporation of water and allow the ingredients to be better absorbed. Plus they are super hydrating.
These masks by Lumi Glo are made from bamboo and loaded with hyaluronic acid which as we all know helps with reducing fine lines, hydration and promoting suppleness. They also contain CBD fruit extracts which restore and calm skin, avocado oil which aids in UV protection, and coconut oil which is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-ageing properties.
As you can see from the diagram above, you gently flatten the mask over the face with your fingers and sit or lie down for at least 15 minutes. I’ve tried walking about the house to get on with other things, but the mask shifts and can slide off so it best to take a moment and chill!
I’ve tried several sheet masks prior and this really supersedes the others. My skin felt deliciously warm, due, I’m sure, to the hero ingredient, CBD fruit extract, infusing my skin! Once I removed the mask I patted the excess serum into my now-hydrated and supple-looking skin. With my skin looking so plump and glowing I wished I had made alternative plans to my Sunday afternoon, rather than a date with Netflix! This mask is a lovely add-on to any beauty regime.
