When I first heard that I was going to be reviewing the Naturalis Easy Mask + Easy Cream
, I did my research. Whenever I hear about a new anti-aging ingredient, I scour the web for reviews and studies and pour over them endlessly, saving them in my favorites list to be checked out again later. Because of this tendency, I consider myself a skincare fanatic and researching articles is one of the things that I do so I know what a product is allegedly capable of and if it will benefit me. At 54 years young, I have purchased many skincare products in the quest of firmer skin so I was excited to try this. While my skin is in great shape and I take very good care of it, I’ m always on the lookout for products that claim to give a lift to your skin. I have tried many products over the last couple of years and have always given them a few months’ trial to see if they live up to their promises. Alas, all have failed.
How to apply the mask
So when I received the Naturalis Easy Mask - Easy Cream in the mail, I immediately opened it up and read the instructions sheet that was included. However, in my opinion, they were somewhat lacking. This may sound silly, but I was confused by how to use it. Yes, I saw the illustration of how it should be done, but I wasn’t sure if I should pour the whole bottle on the corklike-looking mask or just a little bit of the liquid in the bottle and save the rest for another time. But, if I did that, how would I apply it to the mask after I had already used it? This required further investigation. So I checked the Truth in Aging site and found two Naturalis reviews, one for a serum which didn’t fare well
and the other for the anti-aging natural lift cream
, which did pretty well, but no one mentioned how to apply. I then did some further checking online and came across a site that had a video that explains what the Easy Mask & Easy Cream will do, but it was not specific enough for me. Getting slightly frustrated, I decided that since it is named one easy mask kit its purpose is for a one-time use and I may as well just try it out.
You may be laughing by now or shaking your head at me; but in all honesty, I really was not sure how it was to be applied. From what I could gather, you pour the serum onto the mask, which truly does resemble a cork, and the liquid absorbs into it. Then you open up the cork (mask) and wear it on your face for 10 minutes. Really, a 10-minute mask that is supposed to give you firmer skin? Absurd! I’m a very skeptical person when it comes to lifting and/or firming products, as I’ve mentioned, since as far as I’m concerned from trial and error, the only thing that will give you a lift is going under the knife.
However, since I had a special event coming up, I decided that this would be the perfect time to try out this so-called firming mask. I took my bottle of serum and poured it all over the mask in the other container and watched it expand. Once done, there was a little bit of the serum left in the container, so I just put that on the mask to let it soak in. Then I put on my face the white cloth-like mask with cut-outs for my eyes, nose and mouth. I swear it looked like I was auditioning for a horror movie but, hey, if it worked, bring on the zombies! I proceeded to relax for 10 minutes and felt a slight tingling but nothing to be concerned about, so I pressed on. After my 10 minutes was up, I took off the mask, without having to rinse it off with water, and looked in the mirror and WOW, it was AMAZING! My skin actually looked and felt firmer and it had a glow to it as well as a flawless look. Could this have worked? I applied some of the Easy anti-aging natural lifting cream from the other package and smoothed some on my face. I probably used about half of the package. It seemed to relax my skin ever so slightly but it still had the glow and the brilliance I had read about in other reviews and it did still feel firm enough to be noticeable. I applied my makeup, which just consists of matte concealer, around my nose and chin. I could not believe it, but it seemed like I actually looked 10 years younger with my glowing, flawless, firm skin - and I am not one to say something like that if it were not the case. I am very critical of my skin and how I perceive it to look. That whole night, my skin had a glow about it, almost as if it had been lit from within. I admit I did check it out in the mirror several times throughout the evening. This turned out to be a very good product for me and I would urge you to give it a try if firmer skin is your goal. No, it isn’t as good as a facelift but it will give you a slightly tighter appearance.
Being the skeptic I am, I decided to purchase another Easy Mask + Easy Cream kit and try it again. Well, it had the same result so I was sold! It gives my skin a fresh look, and I am definitely going to be purchasing the six-pack of the kit, which is costly, but if it will do for my skin like the one-time kit did, this is definitely something that I would be willing to spend my hard-earned money on. And the fact that Naturalis uses organic ingredients is a definite plus; it also contains argan oil
, which is all the rage at the moment. All in all, I believe that this is something that Truth in Aging readers would find to be a wonderful addition to their skincare regimen.
