Here's a lesson you don't learn until you're in your late 20s: that SPF 50 PA ++++ sunscreen isn't bulletproof. Heck, it isn't even completely sunproof. If you love the surf and turf (and I don't mean seafood) as I do, you're bound to feel the burn sooner or later. As it turns out, when you have fair skin, it's sooner. So what's a girl to do? Get that vitamin C game on, bish.
I've been an occasional user of Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Remover, for which I have nothing but good things to say. Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum is a newer acquaintance, one I adore even more for its persistent yet gentle formulation. Imagine my glee when I learned that its sheet mask cousin is underway.
The C+ Collagen Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask is Dr. Dennis Gross's first sheet mask, and they're clearly not playing around. For one, the sheet is eco-friendly. Read: don't expect a bleached, white sheet that does the Tango around your face while you beg it to heal you. Nope, this paper-thin treat wraps you like a cocoon until you're ready to set yourself free. When I did, my skin felt smooth like butter, plump like jelly, and beaming like a friggin' sunflower that was freshly watered. I didn't need to mask again for another week or more, but hey, I've never been one to restrain myself from blessings. 5 gold stars.
