1. The sink-in mask
Just like magic, this sheet sinks straight into the skin and disappears. Similar to the cult Advanced Genefique serum, the Hydrogel Mask is full of Bifidus, a probiotic extract that works to strengthen your skin's barrier function leaving you with instantly calmer, more hydrated skin.

3. The futuristic foil mask
Experience the iconic Advanced Night Repair Serum in a very different way. To get technical, this mask works with a dual-matrix system, whereby the inner layer releases a powerful concoction of Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, ChronoluxCB™ for repair and an array of anti-irritants, and the outer foil layer seals in all of the goodness. Oh, and did we mention it's shiny?

4. The no-pain micro-needle mask
Micro-needling triggers the skin's natural healing process to increase elasticity and firmness through creating tiny punctures in the skin with a derma-roller covered with fine needles. This two-step mask, however, masters the art without the actual needles. Containing micro-pyramids of Hyaluronic Acid, you massage the 'filler' into your face, creating micro-tunnels in the skin, before applying the moisture-rich mask.

Rich in natural-origin Collagen, after just 15 minutes you can expect skin to feel smoother and appear tighter and lifted, while the presence of an innovative cell booster stimulates skin regeneration. If you're looking for a powerful anti-ager, this is it.

Then, apply the sheet mask, rich in Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe extract, for a perfectly plumped, soothed complexion.
