The Face Masque That Makes You A Mouth Breather

biologique+recherche+masque+vivant The Face Masque That Makes You A Mouth BreatherBiologique Recherche’s Masque Vivant is absolutely amazing, if you can get past the odor (it looks and smells like fermented soy sauce).

You’re supposed to apply it and then let it do its thing for 10 to 20 minutes – which, in Daneen time, translates to a half hour. I always leave products on longer than instructed for optimum results, because I’m crazy like that. But the smell was so godawful that I could only bear 9.5 minutes before rushing to wash it off.

But let me tell you…once I removed the masque from my face, it was like there was new skin underneath. My complexion was radiant and my skin felt baby smooth. And I had this rosy glow – as if Kevyn Aucoin, himself, had expertly applied some rouge to my cheeks.

In closing, Biologique Recherche’s Masque Vivant may smell like death. But it gave my drab visage new life. And for the results it delivers, I’ll gladly breathe out of my mouth. Hopefully next time, I can make it to 10 minutes…maybe more!
