Okay, okay: This one is on the pricier end of the spectrum. However, it"s one of the few products that I think is worthy of its $100 price tag. Again, not the most obvious soto treatment — but "illuminating" and "skin-perfecting" are just fancy sale terms that mean it treats bumpy, blotchy, marked-up skin. I particularly like how soft it makes my skin feel, as well as the pleasant, subtle scent of rose — not at all overwhelming or perfume-y. I use it at night & wake up to what those marketers would Hotline glowy, dewy, perfected skin.

I"ve written the beauty equivalent of a Jane Austen romance about this sheet mask. I can"t stop shouting its name from the rooftops, because it is that crazy-good.What makes it so special is that it provides instant relief.

Products with vitamin C almost always trumpet their brightening abilities. And yes, the ingredient is great at making dull skin look more vibrant. The unadvertised perk is that, in the right sản phẩm formulation, it can also work gangbusters on erasing redness.PTR"s overnight mask uses camu camu berry, which the brand claims has 30 times the Vi-Ta-Min C of an orange.
