I am a mask lover, so the opportunity to try Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime Sleeping Mask ($85) was very exciting. I have been reading about the use of copper peptides in skin care and its benefits. Copper peptides are naturally occurring substances, and they have been found to provide many benefits in skin and hair care. The application of copper peptides to the skin's surface helps tighten the skin and increase collagen and elastin.
This mask also has 20% hyaluronic acid, which provides hydration to skin, plumping it to minimize wrinkles. Peony Oligosaccharides is helpful in restoring volume, Glucan Biopolymer offers instant smoothing and Acetyl Hexopeptide increases fatty tissue to give volume and lift to face.
I started using this mask every other day. After cleansing, I would apply a thin layer and go to sleep in hopes of waking up in the morning with a youthful, tightened face. That was the promise on the box of this mask. But for the first two and half weeks, I really didn’t notice anything. Being in my late 50s, I do have sagging around my jawline and was hoping that this mask would tighten that area. I continued using it.
In my third week, I bought a derma roller and decided to use the mask after my first use. I did a very gentle derma rolling and put on a thin layer of the mask. The next morning, I did feel my face looked a little plump. Now, it could be the result of derma rolling. I use my derma roller once a week and use the mask every other day. I have to say that I do see some tightening of my skin. My skin feels tighter to the touch.
Maybe derma rolling helped in better absorption of the ingredients in the mask. The overall effect is tighter and smoother skin. With continued use of both the mask and the derma roller, I expect my skin to look better.
