If you're here, you're probably wondering what my thoughts are on the Jivesse Collagen & 24 Karat Gold Face Mask, and whether it really works. So if you're thinking of taking the plunge and want to find out whether it's worth it - I have good news for you. It is.
I have to admit, when I first heard about this product, I was skeptical. I mean, who wouldn't be? Women have been trying to find the answer to visibly lifted, tightened and firmer skin for YEARS (the natural way, without having work done). The part that really swayed me though, was the price tag and the stockists. Retailing at £125 for a pack of 5, you can find it at Harrods, Selfridges or on the Jivesse website. Now I know for sure, that such well respected retailers like Harrods and Selfridges, wouldn't sell this product if it wasn't any good. If it's good enough for them, then it sure as hell is good enough for me.
The first night of my trip, I decided to try it out late before going to bed. I was exhausted from the early start and looked super tired, so I cleansed my face by removing my makeup and left it to dry for about 5 mins.
Once my face dried, I went and removed the mask from the packaging before use. I was actually incredibly surprised as to how moist the mask actually was, there was a lot of excess moisture and liquid which I was pleased about - I sort of expected it to be like every other mask and be pretty dried out.
As you can see from the picture below, it was covered in flakes of 24 karat gold. This I was also pleased about, as prior to opening it, I didn't expect it to have much gold in it at all.
I pressed the mask on to my face, and made sure it covered the whole area. I then left it on for 15-20 mins. It had a very cooling and soothing sensation when it was on my face, which made my skin feel instantly hydrated. I felt so relaxed and as it was late at night, I very nearly fell asleep with it on! Once I had removed it, I did what the instructions suggested - which was to not wipe any left over moisture off of your face, but to gently massage your face instead. I did this for 5 mins and then went to sleep.
When I woke up the next morning, I felt really tired because I hadn't caught up on much sleep from the day before. I was expecting to look in the mirror and look like a zombie, BUT my skin looked so awake! There was no trace of any bags under my eyes, my skin looked really bright, vibrant and refreshed, with zero sign of any cold, chapped, dull skin. With regards to tightness, it didn't give my skin that really tight, itchy sensation that some face masks can give you - but rather a youthful plumpness to it.
The results made doing my makeup so much quicker and easier, j didn't even need to wear highlighter!
I was so pleased with the results, that I decided to redo this routine every night before bed for the duration of my trip.
I really did feel this helped me to feel so much more hydrated and refreshed for the whole trip - especially when you're spending 12+ in a busy city with barely any chill time.
On the whole, I really would recommend these products to you, and I also 100% think these are a great investment, especially to your every day routine. Even if you don't have much time to dedicate to looking after your skin, this is a quick 15 minute fix that will leave you feeling like you've spent an hour nurturing your skin. A little goes a long way where your skin is involved!
