For someone who’s into skincare, I have to say I got into the mask craze quite late in the game. Ever since that one night happened when I tried putting on a mask before going to bed, I promised myself to have a “Sunday mask day”. In fact, I find it too relaxing that sometimes I make it twice or thrice a week! Recently, I tried the new Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask, which includes The Brilliance White Soothing Primer and The Brilliance White Gel Cream, making it a unique two-step treatment.
Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask Product Information
Taking inspiration from new technological advancements and consumer trends of concentrated strength and paired solutions, La Mer scientists developed a dual-phase system – bringing together two targeted, concentrated formulas to deliver intense soothing and brightening results.
The new Brilliance White Mask is a powerful, yet gentle two-step treatment that delivers perfectly curated concentrated solutions that instantly brighten and soften skin to reveal a more brilliant luminosity. The complexion is transformed over time – stubborn discoloration appears diminished, tone looks more even, texture smoother and fine lines and wrinkles diminished for an intense new level of hydrated and healthy radiance.
A Brilliant Pairing
Step 1: Soothe & Prep
A delicate fluid formula, The Brilliance White Soothing Primer helps soothe and calm the look of skin. At the heart of The Brilliance White Soothing Primer is the Concentrated Miracle Broth™ – La Mer’s ultimate anti-irritant. It helps soothe and prime on contact, helping calm visible redness and irritation. The new Calming Ferment – a curated blend of algae, vitamins and nutrients – was designed to complement the soothing power of the Concentrated Miracle Broth, working in tandem to optimize and prepare the skin to accept the intense brightening activity that follows.
Step 2: Intense Brightening
With skin perfectly primed and soothed, The Brilliance White Gel Cream delivers concentrated brightening, hydrating and ageless activity in a rich and luxurious gel texture. Crafted with the highly concentrated new Vital Brilliance Ferment – a potent blend of sea-sourced actives and marine peptides – it helps diminish the look of stubborn discoloration and dullness, deeply hydrating and softening lines and wrinkles. Miracle Broth helps deliver energy, radiance and healing hydration while Lime Tea Concentrate helps protect skin against environmental aggressors and future discoloration. Skin glows with a brilliant new clarity.
Together, this two-step system is a true pampering ritual that provides powerful brightening benefits, yet is gentle enough to be used daily. In just 8-minutes, bright, luminous skin is realized. Within weeks, the complexion appears transformed and discoloration diminished for a radiant, healthy glow.
Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask Benefits
- Instantly soothes and calms visible irritation.
- Hydrates to help smooth and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful appearance.
- Brightens skin tone instantly and evens its appearance over time for a pure, more unified healthy looking complexion.
How To Use Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask
- After cleansing, sweep a few small drops of the Brilliance White Soothing Primer onto forehead, temples, cheeks, jawlie, neck and décolleté. In an outward and upward motion, use fingertips to gently glide onto the face and neck, massaging into the skin to stimulate circulation and prep for optimal brightening.
- Using the velvet precision brush, paint on a thin, even layer of the Brilliance White Gel Cream to the neck and face. Sweep upward from the neck and outward from the center. To seal in the brightening benefits, allow it to infuse for eight minutes and then apply gentle pressure to massage it into skin.
- Wash brush after each use with soap and warm water, air dry flat.
Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask Review
The two products have that typical La Mer powdery fragrance. As long as you do not have sensitivity to scented skincare products, you will not have a problem with this.
The Brilliance White Soothing Primer’s consistency is a bit runny. It spreads easily. It is very lightweight and it is absorbed by the skin quite fast. There is a very slight sticky feeling (not bothersome) once applied, but it disappears as soon as the product gets absorbed. I tried applying this primer on the half of my face and I saw a noticeable difference on how my skin looked – the side with the Brilliance White Soothing Primer was calmer with less redness compared to the other side with my bare skin.
no oily residue
The consistency of the Brilliance White Gel Cream is very much alike to La Mer Moisturizing Gel Cream. It is light, yet hydrating. It leaves the skin supple with a nice glow.
Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask is a leave-on mask, meaning there’s no need to rinse it. Well, as soon as you layer the primer and the mask, I do not think you would want to wash your face immediately because skin looks moisturized, healthy, and glowing! I personally like using it at night, layered with La Mer moisturizer and my favourite eye cream.
The first time I tried Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask, I immediately saw the difference as soon as I washed my face in the morning. My skin looks brighter and well-rested, even if I didn’t get 8 hours of sleep. Pores look more refined and skin is softer.
Although the mask is hydrating, I don’t think it is enough during the winter or if you have very dry skin. But of course, you can always layer a moisturizer on top, just like what I do. Therefore, Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask is good for all skin types.
I recommend Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask to those who are looking for a mask that can instantly brighten and soothe the skin. It is perfect for those who are exposed to pollution as the mask calms the skin and for those who want to even out skin tone as it helps lighten pigmentation. I find Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask more economical to use as well compared to mask sheets.
Blanc de la Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask is available in the Philippines at Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-la, Rustan’s Alabang Town Center, Rustan’s Ayala Center Cebu. SRP: Php 14,300
