I hope you had a great weekend filled with lots of fun times! So I will admit something to you…when I see something kind of odd and bizarre in the beauty world, I just want to try it. So this is a prime example of that. Keep reading to see my full review on the Illumask Anti-Aging Mask.
So I saw this interesting mask in Ulta one day, and I passed up the opportunity to buy it then, but I ended up reading a few reviews on it later. So I decided why the heck not. There are two different systems, one for anti-aging and the other for acne. Since I don’t have too much acne now, I decided to go ahead and get the anti-aging one. I’m 27 with not very many wrinkles at all, but it’s good to use preventative care.
What they say: ” IlluMask is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Visibly brighter, clearer, smoother, more radiant skin in just 15 minutes every day, for just $1 per day.” Click here to buy your own.
The mask is a hard white plastic shell type of thing with eye protection built in, and a handheld remote start. The lights are a mix between red and orange. This retails for $29.99 and can be bought at Ulta and most drugstores. You use this mask for 15 minutes every day for 30 days. When 30 days is over, it no longer works.
This is what it looks like on, so if you have kids do it after they go to bed or it may scare them! :)
At first I really really liked this mask. 15 minutes a day of total silence and relaxation. The first 5 times I used it, I swear I fell asleep in the process. It’s a warm calming type of feeling so it really can put you to sleep. The more I used this, the less interested I became, it started feeling like those 15 minutes turned into a hassle and I wasn’t enjoying it nearly as much. I think part of that reason is because I don’t have many wrinkles or fine lines, so I wasn’t noticing it working on me. There were many days I wanted to skip it. And to be honest I ended up giving it to my mom when I had 10 days left, and she did the rest.
I don’t think this is a bad product at all, but not for someone my age that doesn’t have wrinkles anyways. My mom could definitely tell a difference after just a few uses though.
What I did notice was it gave my skin a really healthy glow. Plus I have some “number elevens” and it reduced the appearance of those, which is a good thing!
Would I purchase this again? I personally wouldn’t because I wasn’t able to tell a huge difference, anyone that does have wrinkles or fine lines should definitely check this out. Or if you suffer from acne try that one out. Buy it at Ulta and if you don’t like it, return it, their return policy is my favorite! :)
I hope this gave you some good insight on this mask! Do you think you will buy it?
