Since I started writing on this blog that I do lots of shopping (honestly, I did before, but now I’m on a completely different level) and with that comes a lot of samples.
Whether it’s online shopping or in-store shopping, I usually get lots of samples (if I showed you my sample drawer … it’s a dream). And from time to time, I like to go to my sample drawer and choose one or another sample from a product that I’m curious to try. This is what happened with this mask: the Dior Hydra Life Extra Plump Smooth Balm Mask.
Let’s face it, Dior is not a cheap brand and if we have the chance, we should always try the product on a sample before buying it.
The Extra Plump Smooth Balm Mask has a cost of $69.00 for 1.7oz. of product.
According to the website, this mask:
‘Infused with white pine oil and natural plumping agents, this mask intensely nourishes the skin and plumps the epidermis. Its peach-colored balm texture wraps the skin in comfort and weightlessness. Instantly the skin is full with bounce. Day after day, it is naturally plumped, smoothed and feels comfortable’.
How to use
1. Apply to clean skin and leave on the face for 3 minutes, avoiding the eye and lip contours.
2. Remove any excess using a cotton pad.
Ultra gentle, this mask can even be used 2 to 3 times a week. For all skin types.
I love Dior products. Since I started to use the Dior cream (here) my skin changed a lot (for better). So, I was very excited to try this mask. Call it laziness or a girl with zero time but I’m always drawn to masks that don’t need to rinse in the end. And this is one of them, making it very simple, quick to use (just 3 minutes) and with immediate results.
It’s the second time that I use this product and both times I was needing some nourishment on my skin because it’s hot in my country and my skin was, as I like to call it, ‘a dead walking skin’.
This mask made wonders to my skin, both times. After I use it, I felt my skin smoother and a lot plumper. Everyone that saw my skin after using this mask noticed the difference. The smell is luxurious, always the scent of Dior products.
I have combination skin and I can only use this mask as an SOS facemask because if I use it too much I tender to feel my skin more to the oily side on the next day. The secret is to use it one time per week and just a small amount of it. A little goes a long way. My sample has probably product, to use four more times.
If you have dry to normal skin then you can use a little more, maybe 2 or 3 times per week, as they advise.
Have you tried this mask? Whats your favorite mask, the one that makes your skin immediately plumper??
