I’ve been lucky enough to try a few Environ products over the past couple of years, but the Intensive Revival Masque is the first mask treatment I’ve tried from the brand. It’s a product I’d put in the ‘power mask’ category since it delivers on a number of tasks, with the main one being intensive exfoliation due to the three different acids included in the formulation – Asiatic Acid for healing and regeneration, Lactic Acid for promoting hydration and evening skin tone and Mandelic Acid which also helps to treat uneven skin tone. Whilst this is a mask chock full of acids, it’s designed to lower the PH level of the skin to promote hydration, so you won’t actually peel from using this.
Those who say masks don’t do anything and are just pointless money-makers for the beauty insiders might want to give this mask a go – I have extremely hard-wearing skin that can tolerate quite a bit, but even I felt this treatment get to work straight away. It’s touted as a “face lift in a bottle” due to the fact that it leaves skin looking radiant; smooth, clear, soft and generally very well taken care of. I’m not a fan of “face lift in a bottle” claims generally, but this can definitely be a “facial in a bottle” since skin is noticeably improved after just one use. I’d also say this is just as effective as mild, in-clinic peels without the actual peeling, so if you’ve been considering trying a light peel, maybe give this a go first and save yourself a few bob. It’s a decent sized jar and you only need a small amount for each use, so it isn’t too badly priced at just under £50. You will need to visit or speak to an Environ practitioner to get your hands on it, but you can find out more about it here – link.

I tried the product directly onto my skin overnight but it has left my skin feeling very dry and taught this morning even after moisturizing – is this because i didn’t put a cream beneath it?
Hiya, I definitely, definitely wouldn’t leave this on overnight! It’s a treatment mask so I’d say it should be on the skin for a very limited time – I only tend to have it on for around 10-15 minutes, and even that might be pushing it! It’s a strong and powerful mask so any longer than that I think could really cause problems, so tread carefully.

you can leave this mask on over night, you can apply your moisturiser first and then a thin film of the mask on the skin overnight and wash it off in the morning. You should be using a few times a week to begin with and you can then build it gradually to more times.
hope this helps
