I’m not a fan of gimmicks. I’ve seen it all come and go and I have such a low tolerance for these crazy products like Fresh Breasts (from the maker of Fresh Balls) that claims to get rid of swoobs, their cute terminology for ‘sweaty boobs.’ I can not make this shit up. Apparently we’ve all been walking around with our boobs (and balls?) just drenched in sweat. I’m not actually mad, my arms are just crossed to hide the (small) wet circles imprinted in front of my shirt all the damn time. And P.S., don’t hug me. Is this a real problem? Hey- keep em fresh!
Can you see why I could be just a little bit skeptical when I heard about Acure’s The Magical Wonderfluff, an overnight booster mask that you apply over your moisturizer with skin boosting benefits? Is ‘booster mask’ just a clever way to market a moisturizer in disguise? Actually, no. It has plant stem cells which signal your skin’s own cells to repair themselves and make new, healthy skin. It also has a bunch of good-for-the-skin ingredients like aloe, acai, blackberry, rosehips, pomegranate, calendula, and chamomile along with a bunch of other (mostly edible) organics that are great for the skin.
What I found was that it actually felt like a moisturizer/mask hybrid, having the consistency of a light cream but creating a thin film on the skin much like a mask would. It eventually absorbs into the skin leaving a slight matte finish behind so I do wear it over my moisturizer because it isn’t meant to be all that hydrating. Try it on half your face for a few days like I did so you can see that it actually does make skin brighter and much less dull. I don’t know if it’s actually making a dent in fine lines (I’m still off Botox!), but it feels like it is working to make my skin appear less tired and more refined.
If you’re not into an extra step, it might take some getting used to, but for me the extra few seconds is always worth better looking skin.
