Now that I am a beauty ambassador for Bloom, I got a chance to try Alchimie Forever Brightening Moisture Mask
! This luscious, creamy mask is packed with natural botanicals to soothe, protect, and brighten dull skin. Oats, known for their softening properties, are combined with wild pansies to speed the recovery of distressed skin and calm irritation. Antioxidants from grape extracts protect the skin from environmental stress, while the powerful blueberry reduces facial redness. I am lucky enough to have pretty good skin without to many breakouts. But the red/pink tones make my skin uneven looking. So giving this a shot was great! When I used this the first time I was happy to see that the texture wasn't an extremely
thick paste. It was very easy to apply to my face and smelled like blueberries! I did what the instructions told me to and left it on for about 15 minutes. I had actually forgotten I put it on as I was playing around online. That's because it was lightweight and didn't dry out and give you that plastic surgery feel on your face where you can't move!! That was one of my favorite properties of this mask because I can't stand that feeling and it makes me want to wash it off quicker!
My skin can tend to get really dry around my nose and in other areas making it feel tighter than normal depending on the weather. When I applied this it instantly took away that feeling. The texture was creamy feeling but didn't just absorb into my skin like a cream which is good because the whole point is for it to sit on your skin. I love the fact to that I could walk around my house, possibly even go outside and nobody that wasn't right in front of me would know I was wearing it because it applies almost invisible looking.

After rinsing the mask off my skin felt a lot softer and smoother right away. I had no need to apply moisturizer before my makeup and even went without a primer because how nice my skin felt without it. I love when products make my makeup routine even easier! Also less concealer was used to cover the darker redness and I was able to get away with a not so heavy coverage foundation. Also, the redness did go down a little on my face and I'm sure over the next few times I use it the results will be more each time.
This is a little more on the expensive side at $60 a tub (3.3oz) but I didn't need a whole lot to do one application. They suggest doing this once or twice a week, which is easy enough because I wanted to use it everyday because I like how my skin felt afterwards! If you decide to try it out or have any questions, leave it as a comment here. Thanks!
