Biotherm Life Plankton Mask, RM215 (75ml)
Biotherm’s Life Plankton Mask is one of the rare beauty products that have made a true difference for my oily skin.
What it says
An overnight treatment to soothe and repair the skin. Contains Biotherm’s signature Life Plankton, which provides the skin with nutrients, acting as a cellular regenerator. Also suitable for sensitive skin.
How it feels
The gel texture has a faint aquatic fragrance, which is quite refreshing as the last step of your nighttime facial regimen. The mask is meant to be used twice a week, or as needed. The formula absorbs into the skin well. Massage in with big sweeping motions from the center of the face, outwards.
Why I love it
I have always had oily skin, and my breakouts used to be a lot worse than they are now. I keep it under control by moisturising liberally so that my skin doesn’t become congested. But every now and then, I do go through a period of mild breakouts, which I have to wait out, or have blackheads that I can’t resist removing (with the right tools!). Using this mask immediately after any abrasive facial or blackhead-removing soothes my skin instantly, and I see a distinct difference: the spots I picked at are not as red as they’d be if I didn’t apply the mask. I wake up to bright, hydrated skin that has little or no sign of last night’s freshly opened pores. It’s best used with the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence – I use this one every day and night and it has also visibly reduced the redness on my T-zone. There’s not a skincare duo that I swear by more ardently.
