Azelique for aging skin: cleansing mask and night cream

A couple of posts ago I wrote about the Glamglow masks, and I asked what other cleansing masks I like. One of them is anti aging mask Azelique that I bought by accident under the influence of Intrusive banner πŸ˜€. The mask was effective, but with some nuances. At the same time tell and purchased a pair of the mask, the night cream also was not without surprises.

The packaging is both pleasant to the touch, and visually attractive. I especially admired the silvery shimmer of the bottle of cream. However, with a dispenser that is cream had to Tinker β€” cream “went” is probably clicking with the hundredth (not exaggerating!).

1. Azelique Age refining Activated Charcoal & Clay Mask

With the cleansing I have been experimenting boldly, therefore, to explore the brand cleansing mask seemed like a good option. In addition, I was interested in the combination of seemingly mutually exclusive concepts β€” “anti-aging effect” and “clay mask”.

This format of clay masks, in my opinion, far superior to cans. For example, my previous favorite cleansing mask in the Bank Estee Lauder Clear Difference Purifying Exfoliating Mask (bought twice) is needed to use frequently and regularly, in order to have time to spend before drying. Mask Azelique I have for almost a year. It hasn’t changed texture.

Here’s a sample texture. Thick, but softer than, for example, the aforementioned mask Estee Lauder. And much thicker semi-liquid Glamglow Supermud.

Scrubbing particles (apricot pits) visible to the naked eye. Intensity effects on the skin β€” most are average. More rigid than the Estee Lauder masks and Glamglow Flashmud. But here they are fewer in number.

I like that the mask is applied once a good dense layer, layering is not necessary.

Of course, I know about the recommendations of all manufacturers before first use any funds to first try it on the crook of the elbow. But I so rarely unusual reactions to cosmetics that, when they happen I get really surprised πŸ™‚ and then some time listen to the smart warnings.

Print the mask, I boldly struck her on the face. The manufacturer advises keep the mask for 5-15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I immediately went to wash it off. The case is proving difficult. As you wash off the clay mask? I usually moisten hands, apply to face softens, and I calmly washed her cellulose sponge. With this mask did not work. The speed of deposition is balanced by the difficulties of flushing β€” have a lot of time to collect water in the palm of your hand to soften the top layer masks, before moving to flushing. One more thing β€” after washing off the mask the inevitable cleaning of sanitary ware πŸ™‚ Easy rinsing sink, as after other masks is not enough. The mask is anti-aging, so she leaves nutrient (oily) mark πŸ™‚

Fascinated by rinsing and cleaning πŸ™‚ I just looked in the mirror. Imagine my surprise when I saw on the face of the red a clearly on the limits of applying the mask. Azelaic acid, the main component of brand products, apparently, made itself felt.

Since I don’t keep the mask on your face for more than 10 minutes. Wash before, if it dries faster. By the way, the skin is grasped much stone face (in all senses πŸ™‚ provided). Once I forgot about the ability of the mask to cause redness and again left it for 15 minutes. Again, red face, i.e., habituation occurred. Now don’t forget πŸ™‚

For the effectiveness and benefits of this mask reply contained in its composition:

β€” the activated coal, white clay, bentonite clay and algae is cleaned from dirt and toxins, absorb excess sebum, soften and soothe;

β€” azelaic acid reduces pigmentation, lightens the skin, normalizes the production of sebum, moisturizes and gives skin elasticity;

β€” glycolic acid reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliates dead skin cells, evens skin tone, improves the condition of dry, tight skin;

β€” powder, apricot seed mechanically exfoliates dead skin cells, deep cleans;

β€” panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5) attracts moisture; green tea extracts, cucumber, aloe are phytonutrients and antioxidants, have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.

Listed by the manufacturer of the super-properties of the mask, I note a good cleaning and a marked exfoliation, skin smoothing, anti-inflammatory effect. Moisturizing and pronounced anti-aging effect I noticed, but, in my opinion, the main thing that the mask does not dry, additional moisture can be achieved from other means. After a noticeable tightening of the skin mask, I was expecting that the skin will require immediate spreading cream, but, no, when washing off the mask even a little oily to the touch, the skin after it is soft.

Unlike masks, cream in any quantity does not cause me redness.

Start using the cream was in the period of turbulent skin condition (possibly caused by insufficient purification, and, perhaps, excess consumption of mildly “useless” products).

The first impression of the cream was a delight from the rapid reduction of the intensity of inflammation. Just three applications of the inflammation has calmed down, quickly and almost disappeared, and new did not appear, skin tone is evened out. I read about magic effect of azelaic acid on the black dots, so I continued to use this cream to a full cleansing of any imperfections πŸ™‚

While I was pleased that the cream really has a good anti-aging effect. If it does not exist or is weak, I begin to appear in the morning, the creases on the skin. With this cream it was not.

However, after about two weeks of nightly use, I noticed that the skin was “loose”. This was especially noticeable on the areas that typically signal the glut (around the nose) and forehead. In addition to the looseness, the forehead is oily.

I stopped using the cream, the skin condition was recovered (vanished looseness, inflammation did not appear). After some time I tried to go back to the cream (I always had the desire to get rid of blackheads using cream :-)). The looseness appeared again, and after a little while β€” about a week (attribute this to the fact that the weather was hot). I thought that the cream is better will show in the cold season, but the pattern is again repeated. Mode in a day or two negative aspects were not, and the skin kept calm and even tone. The cream is not entered in my permanent care, gave up, opting for a less problematic means.

Term of use: about six months to 1-2 week courses and occasionally

Conclusion: both tools work and give a noticeable result. But each of the tools have features (mask β€” complexity with flushing; cream looseness of skin), which give reason to doubt the likelihood of repeat purchases.
