Magicstripes Lifting Collagen Mask BOX (5x)
The Lifting Collagen Mask is a unique face mask to achieve a tighter and more defined lower part of the face. The innovative Lifting Collagen Mask contains a selection of powerful active ingredients. The specially designed blend and the composition of the mask support the natural V-shape of the face. It alleviates the symptoms of swelling in the lower facial area, is effective against the appearance of a double chin and lifts sagging skin in the region of the lateral cheeks, lateral jaw area and jawline. The Lifting Collagen Mask refines the contours of the lower face frontally and in profile, with a lifting effect for a firmer and more defined chin and jawline. Nourishes and moisturizes. The mask is soaked with an effective cocktail of Collagen, Caffeine, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Macadamia nut oil and Water, which helps to visibly lift, form and streamline the skin of the lower face. Weakening elasticity of the skin causes wrinkles and tired-looking facial features, the lower half of the face (that is, the lateral cheek area, lateral jaw and chin) is a particular problem area. This mask strengthens the skin in the lower half of the face and helps to lift and tighten this area, visibly defining and beautifying the facial contours.
