La Vie Celeste Restorative Exfoliating Gel Mask is a gentle but powerful mask formulated to brighten skin, while minimizing pores and providing effective surface exfoliation. It makes the most out of aloe vera, glycolic acid and bamboo grains to leave skin softened, with a luminous and rosy glow. This complexion-enhancing product has been tested and reviewed by members of our community, like all of the items offered by Truth In Aging, so you can be sure that the La Vie Celeste Restorative Exfoliating Gel Mask will provide you with clean, healthier skin. Shop Truth In Aging today to get more exfoliating and restorative facial masks.

La Vie Celeste Restorative Exfoliating Gel Mask uses a unique formulation of bamboo grains and the purest grade glycolic acid to exfoliate, without being harsh or abrasive. Skin is deeply hydrated and nourished with hyaluronic acid, and calmed with the addition of white tea. The result is a complexion that looks completely revitalized and clear.

Apply to clean, slightly damp skin. Start by warming up a small amount of gel into palm of hand. Gently massage gel into skin (about 1 minute) to speed up the exfoliation process. Leave on for an additional 5 minutes (may be left on for up to 20 minutes) before rinsing with warm water. Sensitive skin types may want to rinse after 2 minutes for the first few treatments. Avoid eye area and rinse immediately if you experience irritation or burning. A slight tingling sensation is normal. Suitable for all skin types except very sensitive.

TIA Review by Marta:
This facial mask is one of my favorite products of all time. I am on my third pot and it is my go to for a dewy, refreshed complexion. It is formulated with a gentle, but effective 5% glycolic concentration that is a terrific skin brightener.

Glycolic acid is regarded by skincare professionals as one of the breakthrough ingredients of the last 20 years. It is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in sugar cane. As the AHA with the smallest molecule and the greatest penetration, glycolic acid deeply exfoliates to remove skin that is dry, coarse, or dead. For kick starting a serious anti-aging skin regimen, it is essential.

La Vie Celeste has ensured glycolic's brightening and smoothing effects are given a helping hand by exfoliating bamboo grains, licorice and bearberry extract, which is loaded with alpha arbutin a natural (safer) hydroquinone. Organically sourced antioxidants include white tea (supposedly better than green tea) and melon. An aloe base ensures this mask is soothing.

Our Take...

I have been searching for a really good glycolic product for a long time. My favorite used to be Image Skincare’s Ageless serum, but for various reasons (they changed the formula and the price, plus it isn’t easy to buy) I found it frustrating enough to seek an alternative. I have finally... Read Full Article

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I LOVE this mask! I have been using it 1-2x a week since the beginning of February. It really does make your skin glow. La Vie Celeste Restorative Exfoliating Gel Mask is amazing. It will always be part of my skincare routine.

    A very gentle, non-irritating way of introduction to AHA's. No downtime, no peeling, flaking or irritated red skin when using the typical AHA

    Good at brightening and making face feel clean and tight in the short term.

    Long term, tbh it has not done much for my stubborn PIH, guess I need a stronger glycolic acid.

    Highly recommended for dipping one's toes into the worlds of Acids and peels.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I love, love this product. I have sensitive, combination skin and use this mask as a quick fix when I feel my face is looking dull and especially oily. I only leave it on 2 to 3 minutes. My face looks brighter and refreshed with a more even tone. My chin breaks out less since I've been using it. It's an awesome product!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is hands down my favorite mask. I have sensitive skin and the glycol acids in this product do not cause me any issues. I use this mask as a quick, immediate results product that instantly brightens and perks up my complexion. It makes me look refreshed and rejuvenated. I know I love a product when i use the entire jar - that hardly ever happens to me! I recommend this as a product that would work for almost all skin types, keep this on your shelves! It's worth the price tag!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I like this product a lot! I think in the future I will end up switching to something stronger but if you're looking for something effective but gentle this is a great choice. I could easily use this multiple times a week without irritation but am trying to make it last. I love that you get the little scrubby bits for exfoliation when you're applying it and then you get all the wonderful benefits of the peel/mask by leaving it on. My face feels very smooth, hydrated, and refreshed after I use it. No reduction in dark spots yet, but there's definitely an immediate brightening effect that makes it perfect for pre-event glow.

    I didn't know I needed a mask before Marta recommended this glycolic mask for me. It goes on clear and leaves skin feeling fresh, taut and looking bright.

    I love it, it is fantastic and help me to clean my oily face.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is the first time I have ever tried glycolic acid and I would say it is the best place to start if you are not sure you will be sensitive to it or not. No product has made a bigger difference on my skin as this! I have received so many compliments on my completion and people are starting to think that I am alot younger than I am! If you just did this 2-3 times a week and the royal bee venom mask 2-3x a week you could throw in the towel and be done because you will have arrived at a glowy dewy complexion!!! I am 31 with combination skin.

  • Sorry guys...I meant to say that the current color is not UNATTRACTIVE, just different:).

  • Just wanted to mention to all of you who have used the Exfoliating Gel Mask before, that you might notice a color change. Up until recently, the gel mask has been a lighter peachy/pink color. At the time we were able to source the lighter color of pink clay, but unfortunately, it has been completely depleted from the earth. As a result, it is necessary to now dig deeper to source this clay. As you dig deeper, the color gets darker. So, the color is now more of a terracotta color. While we loved that beautiful lighter color, this has more of an earthy look --not attractive, just different. Also, because this is a natural product, the texture may vary a bit from batch to batch --sometimes creamier, sometimes a bit more gelantinous. If you find it to be more gelatinous, just warm it up in the palm of your hand until it smoothens out and then apply from there. There hasn't been anything else that has changed about the product...thanks to all of you for your great feedback! Teri/LVC

    La Vie Celeste exfoliation gel is good at taking off the dead layers of skin so my chin area breaks out less often.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I love this mask. I have very sensitive skin and I can't tolerate many brightening/glycolic acid masks but I don't react to this one at all and my skin is smooth and lovely after I have used it. I highly recommend

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I use this resurfacing mask a few times a week. I love the feel and although there is a bit of stinging it is not much. I leave it on my skin 5-10 minutes but have never felt a tightening. Should I be leaving it on longer to receive the full effects?
    I wonder what might happen if I did used it overnight. Nervous about it making my sensitive face red.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I've been using this mask for a couple of years and love it! I use all the LVC products with the exception of the new serum, which I haven't tried yet but I will, when I deplete the serum I'm currently using. I'm very pleased!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Lovely exfoliating mask. I've used many nice ones over the years, but I really like this one the best. It does a great job of exfoliation, but it is not harsh on my skin. I also like that it is easy to wash off.

  • WOW. This is hands down the best mask I have ever used! If you are looking for an instant glow and tightening, then this is it. I have super sensitive skin and this did not irritate one bit. I kept the mask on for five minutes and after I rinsed it off and waited for a few minutes, I looked closely at myself in the mirror and noticed that I looked more refreshed, with a healthy, brightened glow and lift. I think I may have even winked at myself ;) Completely worth every penny. I have been looking for a product that gives me quick results, and I think I have found it!

    This la-vie-celestes-glycolic-mask is awesome stuff! An amazing product! So glad of my purchase!!!!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    i love the glycolic, i've use it 1-2x a week for about a year now. its just enough and not too harsh. i also find that it dries up and heals my blemishes. truly an amazing product. i've been using the cleanser and toner too and finally my skin feels balanced. im never too oily or too dry my skin just feels nourished

    I allowed the gel to sit on my face for about 5-10 minutes. During that time I could feel a tightening effect on my face along with some stinging (nothing unbearable), so in my mind, that meant everything was working and the results were going to be fabulous! ). After the 10 min. wait I washed my face & neck with some cool water and the mask came off with very little effort. After that first try, I was hooked! My face and neck felt so refreshed it was as if a little of my “oh, I look & feel so old” blues were disappearing!! My neck felt soft and firm and my face had that California beach girl glow!! I have been using the mask now for roughly six weeks, 2-3 times per week and I really think it has helped my skin look refreshed and perky! So, I think I will continue to use this product on a weekly basis.
    Guess what?? My sign from above was right!! This was the pick me up I needed or I should say, my skin needed!

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I decided to get the trial size of the mask, facial cream and eye cream… love them AND they do not create chaos on my super sensitive skin!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I have been using LVC Gel Mask since TIA introduced me to the line last summer. I find it indispensable and make it a point to use it overnight, once or twice a week. I love what it's done for the clarity and tone of my skin. Wonderful and affordable product.

    My nutrition specialist suggested I use the Made from Earth Grapefruit Glycolic Scrub 2-3 times per week in order to deep clean my pores. You would think that since it's glycolic acid, it would be pretty harsh on the skin but it's not drying or irritating at all for my sensitive skin. After use my skin looks brighter and feels cleaner.

    I also love the smell of it. The smell puts me in the mind of a spa so, I feel like I'm at a salon or something when I'm using this lol.

    A little bit goes a long way and the bottle will last you forever!!
