clé de peau BEAUTÉ is one of our top favourite Japanese beauty brands and we especially love their makeup range which we shared previously here, here and here before. We had the privilege to attend the brand's newly refurbished boutique opening at Parkson, Pavilion KL some time back and also the opportunity to try out their Intensive Brightening Mask. Today, we shall take some time to share with you our experience using the masks. So, let's indulge in some ultimate luxury, shall we?
clé de peau BEAUTÉ Intensive Brightening Mask (a box of 6 sachets/sets at MYR439.90)
With this brand, everything spells luxury, that would include the silver almost reflective packaging that these 6 sachets of masks come in. According to clé de peau BEAUTÉ , this is a luxurious brightening mask that minimises the visible signs of excess melanin production and reduces the appearance of spots and freckles. Infuses skin with intensive moisture and beneficial ingredients to create a look of translucence and radiance while eliminating dullness and uneven skin tone. Delivers noticeable brightening in a single application.
Sounds impressive, we feel. What exactly makes up such a powerful mask, we wonder? These are some of the rationals from the brand. The mask contains Illuminating Complex, a powerful moisture-stabilizing force that creates a radiant complexion. Formulated with the intensive brightening ingredients like Tranexamic Acid and 4MSK (potassium 4-methoxysalicylate), it is able to beautify the skin, help prevent dark spot and freckles, minimize the visible signs of excess melanin, provide brightness and evenness with every usage. It also increases moisture and resilience in skin. The mask also provides a luxurious smoothing treatment for skin showing signs of aging or UV damage and inspires a look of radiance emanating from within. Formulated with an exclusive clé de peau BEAUTÉ ingredient, Cellular IC Normalizer that enhances conditions for optimal functioning of the cellular ion channel system, it is dermatologist-tested.
Designed in two separate sections to address the specific skincare needs of the upper and lower areas of the face because the brand believes that the cause of the skin dullness for these two parts of our face differ. For the top part of our face, oiliness is the main reason while the lower part of our face are due to the appearance of large pores and roughness of the skin. Therefore, the top-half of the face sheet is soaked in a clear serum-like fluid, works to balance the T-Zone, produces a brightening effect by eliminating dark circles and dullness in the eye area, and diminishing uneven skin coloration caused by sebum on the nose. The creamy emulsion of the bottom-half of the face sheet helps to firm sagging skin at the cheek and mouth area.
We have to admit that we saved this mask for a time when we just got a slight tan from all the shooting work done outdoor, under the hot sun for one of our projects. We wanted to see how this brightening mask would fare and work its wonder. On the hydration and moisture richness level, this one MOST definitely delivers and performs way beyond. As for the claim of intense brightness after one application, it falls short a tad. We do feel the suppleness and the plumpness it provides, totally. Perhaps we need multiple and continuous usage to see a much better result in terms of radiance, brightness and translucency that the mask promises. This mask is most definitely one that you can pamper yourself with, after a long day, when your skin feels most tired and needed a good pick-me-up and the maximum moisture and comfort level you so desire. (if you have deep pockets, that is *_^) Terribly comforting and luxuriously enriching for the skin.
Located on the 3rd floor, the newly renovated clé de peau BEAUTÉ counter introduces a whole new concept - a fresh new look and displays, with a sophisticated interior and dynamic layout. A diamond-like décor is installed as the centre piece, representing the brand's core value "Radiance of Joy" which also resembles the star product, La Crème. The three main zones of the counter are the mesmerising gallery (display of skincare and beauty products), the exclusive salon (one-to-one consultation session) and the timeless cabin (luxurious facial treatment room).
