When the beauty desk discovers a product that really works and is equally as enticing to house on one’s dressing table, we simply must report straight to Vogue.me. Case in point: Starskin’s latest sheetmask venture, a lace face mask, that’s transformed the morning routines of beauty aficionados the world over, and arrives in the Middle East in August 2017.
Unlike the traditional Phantom of the Opera-esque masks, which go onto the skin in a thick layer, the waterless formula reminds us of the dazzling couture creations crafted by Pat McGrath backstage at Givenchy for Spring 2016— and at a fraction of the would-be price (AED 50, to be more precise).
Featuring high concentrations of a nourishing serum that smoothes lines, reduces swelling, and promotes collagen production in just 30-minutes, each sheet comes infused with potent doses of skin-boosting coffee seed, Korean red pine, and golden chamomile to jolt your complexion. An additional spike of tremella mushroom extracts, which boast excellent water retaining properties, help with hydrating and plumping. The product is free from parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, silicone, and chemical dyes, which means that those with problem skin don’t have to worry about it clogging up pores.
Additionally, the brand unveiled a hydrating, lace eye mask, which fits into even the most tightly edited of travel kits, to brighten, tighten and hydrate the under-eyes using key moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. Free radical-fighting green tea extracts soothe inflammation and iron out lines. The masquerade-inspired product is the easiest and most Instagrammable way to press the reset button on your complexion in a short period of time.
