Mini Review: Clarins’ New Cryo Mask
I had high hopes for Clarins’ Cryo-Flash Instant Lift Effect & Glow Boosting Face Mask.. and it delivered! I will caveat that it is NOT actually 2x as cold as cryo (as the brand claims) but I am absolutely fine with that! It’s nice and cold in a relaxing and refreshing minty cool sort of way (whereas when I get proper cryo at the spa it can be uncomfortably cold).
I applied a thin layer to my skin post-shower. I loved the scent: delightfully minty! As soon as I applied it, I felt an immediate cooling sensation. It was a little bit tingly too. It got colder and colder as I left it on. It felt really good.
After ten minutes, I rinsed it off. What surprised me was that my skin still felt very cold. In a good way, not an uncomfortable way. I also noticed noticeable firmness and a more lifted look, especially at the jaw line. My skin was glowy, hydrated, and just felt really good. This is a great mask to have on hand in the summer when we just feel hot and sticky all the time. It was really refreshing.
Overall verdict? Two very enthusiastic thumbs up from me.
