Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel Off Mask
I always keep an eye on the high-cost anti-ageing products on the Oriflame catalogue. They look so tempting in the catalogue, but the price is so high, that most of the times I let it go, but sometimes those high flyers do get a major slashdown and I grab them up immediately. One of these high flyers which got slumped down in last month’s catalogue was the Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel-off mask. Originally priced at Rs. 890, it was brought down to Rs. 239 in August’s catalogue and I didn’t let it go!!!! Here’s me reviewing the peel-off mask from Oriflame after using it on my mom, my aunt, and of course myself.

What Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel-Off Mask Claims:

Formulated with Bio Spring technology, a combination of 3 powerful active ingredients (Rye extract, Pro-Retinol, and Sodium hyaluronate), it specifically targets the aspects of sagging and ageing skin needs:

My Take on Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel-Off Mask:
This peel-off mask from Oriflame is part of an anti-ageing kit, but unlike earlier anti-ageing products, which I bought for my mom and tried for myself and got bad results in the form acne and zits, I did not have any such experience with this. Since this is a peel-off mask and needs to be kept only for 10 minutes on the skin, it was a safe bet for me and I felt there was no harm in trying.
This lilac-coloured tube comes with a flip-open cap which contains a beautiful lilac-coloured viscous liquid with lot of sparkling particles in it. I just fell in love with the colour. The mask is very runny, when I opened, the cap, it just flowed out. The first time that I had applied it, I just took a sizeable amount of the product and applied it.
Immediately after the mask had been applied, I felt a tingling-like sensation, more of tingling sensation to the olfactory system than on the skin, since I felt I was smelling vinegar/acetic acid. After 10 minutes, when I had thought that the mask had dried, I tried peeling it off, but I had to spend the next half an hour in order to clear my face of all the bits and pieces of the peel. Also, I could only see minimal changes with regards to results.
The second time that I used it on my mom, I applied it liberally on her and again, I had issues peeling it off from her face because it does not peel off in the zip-zap-zoom way that I am used to, such as with Everyuth ones or other peel off’s. But, I could see that my mom’s face did appear lifted up and a bit brighter too. So, it does require to be applied in a “very” thick layer to show results. Another time, I had used it on my aunt, and this time too, in a thicker amount, and again, she had difficulty peeling it off, but the results were evident.
One more point to note that this effect is not long-lasting, may be a few hours to one day is what it would last. So, if you have to attend a function or party, it would do you good, but be sure that you don’t apply it when you are pressed for time.
Also, by the time, I had used it for around 3 times, it became almost half empty, but I am quite happy with how it fared on me too. I have got good results minus any acne or zit on me; otherwise, I am quite used to trying out anti-ageing creams and serums that leave me scarred.
Summing up the pros and cons of this mask:
Pros of Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel-Off Mask:
• A peel-off mask that actually tightens up skin and makes it radiant if used in the right way.
• Leaves skin brighter.
• Skin appears clearer.
• The peel-off liquid looks so pretty with the pretty lilac colour and the sparklers in it.
• Contains rye extract.
Cons of Oriflame Lift Expert Firming Peel-Off Mask:
• After drying, it does not peel off well, it comes off in bits and pieces, and it happens the same way even if you have applied a thin layer or a thick layer.
• If not on offer, it would cost a hefty Rs. 890, which I think is just too much.
• The brightening and radiant effect that it imparts is not long-lasting, it would just last for one day, but then if you have something important where you need to look radiant, this would do.
• The peel is very runny and just flows out through the big nozzle, I wish they could have made a narrower nozzle.
Will I Repurchase this Mask Again? Yes, but at the same price.
