Super-hydrating mask that can be used overnight for a healthy-looking glow / 1.7 oz
Augustinus Bader The Face Cream Mask is one of those products that we were skeptical about at first: “A Face Cream…Mask?” We also, truth be told, really didn’t want to fall in love with a $215 face mask. And yet here we are, completely smitten.
First, there’s the texture: not exactly a cream, not exactly a gel-cream, but somewhere in between, in the best way possible. It glides onto skin with a nearly clear finish, yet it feels substantially hydrating, signaling that with a magical combination of plant extracts, hyaluronic acid, and Bader’s famed TFC8®, seriously dewy skin is in your future.
The mysterious TFC8 is a blend of 40 different natural amino acids, vitamins, and synthesized molecules that are found in healthy skin, carefully calibrated to help accelerate skin’s own repair processes — processes that address everything from sun damage to uneven texture to loss of firmness. TFC8’s development was based on Professor Bader’s breakthrough research on skin healing and tissue repair, and the complex has been proven to nourish skin while strengthening and supporting its innate potential for renewal in a uniquely personalized way, stimulating your skin to activate its own renewal processes.
And work it does, as demonstrated by the thorough clinical trials and consumer studies that every Augustinus Bader formula boasts. Clinical studies demonstrated that, after 12 weeks of using The Face Cream Mask for 20 minutes at a time, hydration improved by 164%, skin looked more radiant by 360% (we didn't even know radiance could be clinically measured, but it can and that's an amazing number), and skin felt more elastic by 328%.
Note that we quoted objective clinical study results here — not the typical subjective consumer study results — because these numbers, in a clinical study, are downright impressive. But the consumer study is fun to know about, too: after 12 weeks, 88% of its users agreed that their skin “looks the best it ever has.” Intriguing, no?
Augustinus Bader The Face Cream Mask if you want a plumping, super-hydrating mask that you can leave on overnight as an intensive treatment. Excellent for very dehydrated skin. Wonderful as a final PM skincare layer when you want to look really, really good in the morning.
100% vegan and free of gluten, GMOs, parabens, fragrance, SLS, SLES, DEA, heavy metals, talc, and petrolatum/paraffin/mineral oil.
