Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo: Restore, Revive, Refresh

Given the state of my skin I'm never disappointed by a combination of the words ultra and hydration. At this time of year my under eyes are horribly affected: they range from dry and uncomfortable to deep blue and puffy on any given day. Though I do my best to treat the area with care, never pulling or tugging and always giving it TLC in the form of creams and gentle massage nothing seems to help in the dead of winter.

Of course I was excited to hear that Le Métier de Beauté has released a new product aimed at moisturizing the under eye area and fighting the first signs of aging. The new Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo (USD $150 sold as a set of 8, available now online and in stores at Neiman Marcus) is a one time use product designed to "give your eyes the swift refresher they so often need."

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Algin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Soluble Collagen, Polyquaternium-51, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Potassium Hydroxide, Ceramide 3, Mannitol, Carrageenan, Sodium Polygamma-Glutamate, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Laureth-12, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol

As Le Métier de Beauté's Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo is a one time use product, I made sure to wait until my dry under eyes were in genuine need of a pick-me-up. I removed my makeup in its entirety and skipped putting on post cleanser products that usually make up my skin care routine. I peeled open the package and much to my surprise found actual liquid keeping the Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo moist within the packaging. I was pleasantly surprised, as I was expecting a texture and product not unlike Dr. Jart's Water-Full Hydrogel Mask , a dry gel texture that quite literally did nothing for my skin.

Le Métier de Beauté's promises for this product are simple: after one application the Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo aims to leave the under eye skin looking and feeling "restored, revived and refreshed." Immediately upon application my under eye area felt cooled and the moisture from the eye masks was instantaneously noticeable. Though I expected the masks to slip and slide, they stayed put without the cloying feeling I often dislike when I use sheet masks. After 15 minutes I removed each eye mask and was genuinely impressed: many of the fine lines under and around my eyes were plumped and moisturized into oblivion and the entire area was left moisturized, less shadowy and far more radiant.

The Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo is conveniently contained in a one time use package, making these ideal for travel and on the go application. Shaped not unlike kidney beans, these translucent seaweed-based eye masks adhere to the skin without slipping or sliding. Though I enjoyed mine from the comfort of my home, I can definitely see how beneficial these would be on a long haul flight!

Much like my experience with Le Métier de Beauté's revolutionary CHEM60 Pro-Peel and Glow10ai Mask Set I was blown away by the quality and results I experienced when using the Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo. Le Métier de Beauté has already established a well respected name where cosmetics are concerned, and products like these only go to show that their skin care is as much to be respected as their makeup.

I encourage you to take a look at the Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo and Le Métier de Beauté's other incredible skin care and cosmetic offerings at your local counter. Marianna at Neiman Marcus in Oakbrook, IL (630-572-1500) will take good care of you if you have any questions.
