Hydration anyone? How I stay ‘glow-y’ with Christian Dior Hydra Life Beauty Awakening Rehydrating Mask

As I get older (and yes, I’m going into my 40’s kicking AND screaming) I am hearing the same thing from my various aestheticians….

“You’re dehydrated”

Yeah yeah yeah….but what do I do about it?

Enter Christian Dior Masque Rehydratant Reveil Beaute (there’s the French for ya)-translated to Beauty Awakening Rehydrating Mask.  This mask is part of my routine (2-3 times a week) and I need to share this gem-of-a-product with you!

Here’s what Dior says about this mask:

“Hydra life formula is enriched with an essence built around a concentrate of 3 pure plant extracts to offer the skin all the benefits of Cellular Bio-Exaltation.”

Now, before I go any further-let me tell you I needed to google….

Cellular Bio-Exaltation means…. ????? Yeah, I couldn’t come up with anything other than advertisements and blog posts quoting the same thing I just did.  However, despite the confusing introduction, let me continue.

“Jisten (a patent pending ingredient in the mask) helps to revitalize aquaporins (don’t ask because I don’t know what that is either) to optimize diffusion and maintain water in the skin, exactly where it is needed.”

“Results include perfectly hydrated, youthful looking skin, day after day (well according to Dior).”

How to use:

Leave on for 5-10 minutes, then massage excess product until absorbed or remove with a moistened cotton pad.

What do I think?

I love love LOVE this mask.  I use it at least twice a week.  I was actually told by one of the Dior consultants at my local counter that you can leave this mask on all night if you want to.  I haven’t done that yet, but I leave it on for about 20 minutes and then massage it into my skin. My skin DRINKS this mask up. I highly highly recommend this if your skin needs some moisture!

Things you should know:

1. This is a Christian Dior mask.  It is not Queen Helene mint julep that you buy at the drug store for $5.99.  Expect a higher price tag.

2.  If you have sensitivities to fragrance, you may have issues with this mask.  There is a scent, and while not overpowering, it may irritate you.

So there you have it.  A fantastic way to hydrate your skin!
