Ten years or so ago, I went back to college as a mature student (I am now 35) to study Beauty Science, as beauty, skincare, massage and more really interests me. I knew I would never go on to become a beauty therapist, but I was at a time in my life where I was able to take time out and study something that I loved. One of the best pieces of machinery we had in our second year was from CACI, which are an electrical facial company, and even back then was one of the premier companies in the business. Their facials do not come cheap, but they work and so that is why they were and are so popular. They have recently released some of their own at-home masks, and I was very kindly sent them to try them out for myself.
Starting with the CACI Hydro Mask, this is a clear gel-like mask which is kind of like a sheet mask, in the way that it comes in two parts, and you apply it on top of your skin, rather than it being a product which you would work in to the skin. The Hydro Mask has been designed to give a soothing and calming effect on the skin, which instantly reduces any redness and irritation you may have. As soon as the temperature drops, my skin gets very upset, and so this has been the perfect time of year to try this mask out. The Mask contains intensive moisturising properties, including Hyaluronic Acid and so not only does it add moisture to the skin, it also keeps that moisture locked in, to leave your skin feeling comfortable throughout the day. Another key ingredient contained within this mask is Hydrolysed Collagen, so that is going to help smooth out and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You only have to leave the mask on the face for 10-20 minutes, so whether you are snuggled up on the sofa with a blanket, or are relaxing in a warm bubble bath, this is a quick and easy treatment that will give you long-lasting, professional results. The CACI Hydro Mask costs £30.00 for five masks, working out at just £6.00 per mask, which is incredible value.
It doesn't matter what season we are in, I am forever tired, and so are my eyes. I have severe endometriosis, which means that I get tired very easily, and whether I do or don't get a good night's sleep, my eyes are constantly tired and puffy. Although, more often than not, I don't get a good night's sleep due to my anxiety issues. Therefore, eye masks are a saviour to me, as well as Liz Earle's Eyebright which I use every morning. The CACI Eye Revive Mask is like splashing a full bottle of Eyebright on at once, and is a silicone gel mask (that makes me feel a little like a superhero when I wear it), that instantly soothes and calms tired and puffy eyes. Just like the Hydro Mask, this one also contains Hyaluronic Acid, so your eyes are going to be kept super hydrated all day long, no matter what the weather or how much sleep you get. Two other key ingredients are Cucumber and Green Tea, both of which are renowned for their cooling and nourishing properties, helping to detoxify that eye area and reduce puffiness. The Eye Revive Mask also contains collagen, so again that is going to help plump up any fine lines and wrinkles you may have in the eye area. This mask can be left on for 10-20 minutes, and I wish I had an endless supply as my eyes feel 100% better after using this mask. The CACI Eye Revive Mask costs £25.00 for 5 masks, working out at £5.00 per mask, and in my opinion they are worth every penny.
