When the new Kate Somerville Age Arrest mask showed up under What’s New on the Sephora website during my routine mild stalking sesh last month, I became pretty excited. As a long time fan, but only a short time blogger, I reached out to see if there was a press sample around some office starting to collect dust. What do you know?…ask and you shall receive. Or is it good things happen to good people? #UnderArrest
This Hydrating Firming Mask is the latest addition to the Age Arrest line up (get it?) of an eye cream and face moisturizer. Kate Somerville’s anti-aging range is powered by Telo-5 Technology, based on Nobel Prize winning research into prolonging the life of telomeres. Telomeres are like the plastici tips on our shoelaces but they appear at the DNA end of each chromosome. I don’t know about you but I don’t want my laces to fray. #DoYou?
The sleek charcoal grey container has a pump delivery system that does not over-dispense, which is a major pet peeve of mine. Hello, bonus point. All you need is a thin layer as Age Arrest mask has the consistency of a rich cream. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse or simply wipe it off. With its mild scent, this Kate Somerville mask can be used as an overnight hydrating treatment as well, so sleep tight! #Literally
Safe for all skin types, Age Arrest mask is full of antioxidants, peptides, and amino acids. Sea Whip Extract and Algae Plasma soothe the most sensitive complexions while Ceramides and White Water Lily improve firmness and your skin’s elasticity. Whether you choose to treat yourself in the AM or PM, the boost of hydration is immediately noticeable. The ultimate treat is to use this mask after the iconic Exfolikate. #SpeakingOf
Exfolikate and I go way back. To the days when it was called Kate in a Jar actually. It is hands down one of my most important staples. The Somerville360 Body Tanning Towelettes are the best on the market and the DermalQuench Liquid Lift kept me entertained during my week long stint at the hospital a couple of years ago. I mean, who falls off the operating table unconscious mid surgery? #YoursTruly
