I can't neglect reviewing this product. For the past 8 months I have not gone without giving myself the treat of this lovely, Decleor Mask. My first experience with Hydra Floral was a sample from EDS. After one use I knew I had to purchase it. The scent is an ultra light floral. I mention this as several Decleor products I can't tolerate as I am sensitive to floral type smells. Once a week I give myself a lactic acid peel and follow with a 30 to 40 minute Decloer Hydra Floral experience. While on my skin there is a mild cooling sensation (spa like). After rinsing off my skin looks even toned, hydrated, fine lines plumped up. What is so special about this mask is the benefits last several day. The results remind me of a post salon facial.

A few times during the cold winter I actually applied a thin layer as a night cream. My skin in the morning looked fabulous.

Certain creams can produce whiteheads on my chin. I have never had a problem with Decleor. If you have skin that at times looks tired with fine lines give this lovely, moderately priced mask a try.

My skin type is mature, combo, just starting to lose some elasticity, fine lines crows feet area and a few deeper lines on forhead.

Hi, winnie, I have read a lot of nice reviews from you. What do you think is the distinct places of this mask compared to the rose hydrosol?

I am also thinking about to purchase this mask.
Is this mask only for moisturizing or it has some other effect?
I want to know more detail about the performance of this mask. Has anyone compare this with other hydrosol masks? Thanks.

Careful, skin products that upregulate Aquaporin 3 have been linked to tumors/cancer

http://www.springerlink.com/content/y337t51751362446/

[quote]Alan Verkman of the University of California has just published a paper in Experimental Dermatology* that urges "caution" in the use of anti-aging cosmetics that boost something called aquaporin-3 (AQP3) because of a possible link to cancer. I don't really understand how widespread this concern should be (all, most or just a few cosmetic formulations?). This is what I've been able to work out so far.

Aquaporin-3 (AQP3) is a protein that facilitates the transport of moisture and glycerol. In other words, it helps keep the skin moist. Cosmetic companies have noticed the correlation between AQP3 and moisture content in the skin and market products with ingredients that boost "the expression" of AQP3.

Dr Verkman found, in an experiment on mice, a correlation between AQP3 formation in the epidermis and tumor cells. In his paper he says: "AQP expression in tumor cells has been found to increase their migration, invasiveness and metastatic potential." And this is his conclusion: "Given the relationship between epidermal AQP3 expression and tumor cell proliferation, caution seems warranted in the use of cosmetics containing ingredients that increase epidermal AQP3 expression."

So the main question for me is what are these AQP3 boosters? If we know what they are then we'll know which products to avoid. Verkman refers to a study carried out on behalf of Christian Dior that used a plant extract called extract of ajuga turkestanica as the hydrating (AQP3 boosting) agent. I have also seen references elsewhere citing retinoic acid and glycolic as AQP3 boosting. It is tempting to conclude that any product that claims it can boost moisture by increasing AQP3 activity is to be avoided.

The problem is that I have yet to come across a cosmetic that markets itself as increasing AQP3, although there are plenty that claim to hydrate. Hopefully, more information around this story will emerge in the coming days. I'll update as I come across anything that sheds some more light.

I bought from EDS and have been using it for two months . the scent is florallike immediatly give me a relax feeling both on mind and skin . I use it after massage with Aromessence Rose or Neroli , I heard from beautician that this will promote effect of mask. I only left mask on my face for 10-15 minutes because it absorbed very quick . After using it (twice a week ), my dry skin moisturized and smooth and gloss.

quite good regarding its hydrating level and smell. I left it under my eyes too with no problem.
My only complaint is it's too watery, texture is like fluid, much lighter than a mask texture. So it's hard to spread it on evenly on face. I'll give it 4 lippies. But I found my cheaper better hydrating mask. It's Nuxe's.

This mask is a typical example of the mask to add oil to use after the skin is very plump, very shiny, I very much recommend

you might want to check the MUA products reviews, the reviews for the eye mask are rather contradictory.

I used two of the Eye Mask. Layer thick enough, dilute the fine lines, eye skin is very high immediately. BTW,Eye Cream with the series I am also very recommended
