OLE HENRIKSEN GLOW2OH DARK SPOT TONER REVIEW

PRODUCT DETAILS: The Glow2OH is a facial toner with glycol and lactic acids to help reduce the appearance of dark spots. Dark spots are lightened in as little as 7 days. The toner also helps with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture. The toner is gentle enough for everyday use and also brightens the skin.

USE: After cleansing face. When face is dry use with cotton pad in circular motions. Follow with serum and moisturizer.

REVIEW: I picked up this toner over a month ago. I wanted to give it a good testing before I did a review on it. I was a little hesitant because some people said it was strong and I do a lot to my skin already. I didn’t want to get anything that would burn or irritate my skin. I was also afraid of it drying my skin out as I’m already dry and the winter has not helped. Regardless I decided to give this a go because I’ve had two small brown spots on the right side of my face forever. My first reaction to the toner was that it felt gentle, didn’t burn my skin, and smelled lovely. I kept using it for a week maybe switching out once or twice for another toner I’ve been using for a long time. I really didn’t pay much attention to what it was doing or not doing. I just liked the way it felt and it seemed like a nice enough toner. Then the second week I was looking in the mirror, I got closer tugged at my skin a bit and was in disbelief. I noticed one of my brown spots were gone and the other was a good 50% less noticeable. I had to stop and think what I had done differently. It didn’t take me long to remember the Glow2OH toner I had been using. So, obviously I highly recommend this toner for the brown spots alone. It also works brillantly for brightening skin, fine lines, and more even skin texture. I’ve really noticed a much more even skin tone as well. While I highly recommend this please be cautious while using this product as it contains AHAs which make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Always read directions carefully and understand what you are using on your skin. I like to alternate this toner and another I use. I’ve been doing that for a few weeks now and still works lovely.

TROIAREUKE GPS MASK REVIEW

PRODUCT DETAILS: The Troiareuke GPS Mask is a 3 step anti-aging mask set that helps deeply moisturize the skin. Each mask includes skinshielder cel-cleanser, GPS mask, and cell energy cream. The Skinshielder Cel-Cleanser is a bubble cleanser that washes away impurities, dead skin, and provides hydration and nutrients to the skin. The GPS Mask has high essence penetration to deliver nutrients into the skin. It maps the skin finding areas that need nutrition and moisture the most. The Cell Energy Cream helps lock in the nutrients and protect them from external pollutants. It replenishes skin hydration and activates cell energy.

USE: STEP 1. – You apply the cel cleanser to your face and wait 1-2 minutes for the gel to foam up. Rub the cleanser for one minute with wet hands. Then wash away with wet sponge.

STEP 2. – You remove the first layer of the mask and apply it to the face. Once applied remove the second mask layer. (The mask lays between two layers that need peeled off.) Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. Pat remaining essence into skin.

STEP 3. – Apply cream to face and pat until absorbed.

REVIEW: I bought the 5-pack of the GPS masks off of Amazon so I could really test them out. There is directions in English on the back but I couldn’t find how often you should use them. I messaged Troiareuke and asked them what they recommended. They kindly replied to use them 1-2 times a week. The first time I used the GPS mask I was shocked that it was three step process I thought it was just another simple sheet mask. I use a couple of Troiareuke’s products but have never tried the cleanser or cream so I was excited to use them as well. The cleanser was easy to use and left my skin feeling nice and balanced. I was in awe of the sheet mask, it felt like a second skin. When I looked up some product information on the GPS mask I saw they called it a second skin and that was EXACTLY what I thought! It fit so perfectly and stayed on my face. You can walk around with it and it won’t fall off. I honestly think calling it a sheet mask is doing it an injustice it’s in a league all of its own. The mask has a feel of like a sheet-gel mask hybrid it’s filled with essence and my skin drank it up! The cream felt very moisturizing without being greasy and my skin was glowing. The results I saw immediately were how hydrated and moisturized my skin felt. My skin was brighter, more even, and just happier looking! My skin had been dry from the cold weather and this gave my skin that boost it was looking for. The moisture stayed with my skin for a good week until I got a chemical peel. Then I used my second GPS mask a few days after my peel. I had some rough dry patches from the peel, when I took the mask off they were gone. That part about the mask mapping your face to find the spots that need moisture the most is very real! It cut my heal time from my chemical peel way down which was amazing. (Please check with a professional if you’ve had a peel, all peels are very different.) So, YES I would highly recommend this mask to anyone who’s skin needs some extra hydration, moisture and love. I adore this mask so much it is now in my top 3 sheet masks. It is by far the most comfortable sheet mask I have ever used. I would absolutely repurchase this over and over again and is worth its weight in gold.
