I was prepping for another (sigh - I am so bad at being social) event and wanted to do something in addition to face masks. I've been looking quite tired lately (ie: events) and needed a pick me up! I decided to finally try out the Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment that's been hanging out in my mask box forever and I paired it with a lip mask because, ya know, YOLO.
I washed my face, did a layer of toner, and then applied these. It felt odd not to do my whole routine, but I wanted these to take effect without the other layers present.
For the Murad Eye Lift, you take 5 pumps of product and lightly tap it onto your skin, then take the pads - they include plenty, which is nice - and just lay them on top of the product to help penetrate the skin. It felt soothing with zero stinging or irritation.
The lip mask is a single sheet of lip shaped fabric or whatever it is, pre-soaked in essence. You are supposed to leave this on for about 10-15 mins and not talk while it is on.
With both of these on, I was pretty much stuck in a horizontal position for 15 minutes. As you can see, the lip mask covers from under my nose to about mid-chin, so even the skin around the lip is conditioned nicely. I also did a lip scrub before applying to make it saturate even deeper.
Once I removed both, I added just a serum and then moisturizer to maintain that moisture barrier. I didn't notice startling results but it was a nice experience.
