For an Extra Lift: Age-Diffusing Firming Mask
With age comes wisdom, and sometimes a few wrinkles. Fortunately, the Age-Diffusing Firming Mask is formulated to restore firmness, resilience and elasticity while lifting the skin and softening the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This mask is also gentle enough to follow with another treatment; we recommend to further enhance your youthful glow.
Why It Works: Shea Butter and Brazilian Fruit Extracts work together to replenish moisture and plump up the skin as Marine Kelp rapidly tightens for a firmer appearance.
Reviews Say: “This pleasant-smelling white cream is ultra-soft to the touch and feels oh-so-luxurious when you apply it to your skin. You can almost feel it smoothing away those nasty wrinkles!” – Rosanne
