TIA Review by Charley:
I used Dr. Alkaitis Organic Cellular Repair Mask more often than recommended (once a week) to hurry up the results so I could tell you all about it. After four weeks, I couldn't discern much difference on my face except for the lessening of oil on my T-zone. But wait! I've also been smearing leftover mask on my left hand and forearm- there's just enough for one side- and there I can see a significant improvement. It is not as tanned, and the keratosis pilaris bumps are smoother and lighter than on my right arm. For reversing and preventing sun damage, I would choose this fussy mask over dermabrasion down the line.
How does it work? We're all familiar with oatmeal in skincare products- it absorbs excess oils, exfoliates gently, soothes and conditions. My research on oat buds (or oat tops) failed to turn up anything, but the mask does smell strongly of breakfast porridge. All those berries in the ingredients list are some of the richest sources of anthocyanins, polyphenols, flavonoids, and other botanical goodies. Many studies have found them to be effective antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-allergic, antipruritic wound healers when applied topically. Bilberry, additionally, aids circulation. Grapes protect collagen. Strawberry extract was found to protect fibroblasts in vitro from UV damage. Trust a pharmacognosist like Dr. Alkaitis to find the most powerful plant matter available and cram them into a jar for 'cellular repair'.
A few caveats: The label warns against use if you're allergic to strawberries- obviously that applies if you have allergies to the other berries or oats. And don't let your pets lick you while you mask- grapes are potentially toxic to dogs and cats.
