Dr Darren McKeown, Tri-Mineral Micro Dermabrasion Mask

Benefiting from the experience a trained cosmetic doctor this mask promises to be the key to radiant skin. The tri-mineral complex energises the skin cellular metabolism, boosting skin protein production for a more radiant, luminous complexion. Dull skin cells disappear to reveal, new, younger, fresher-looking skin.

After using once by skin felt completely smooth, although it did get rid of my fake tan, but I guess that shows it’s working.

  • Waterlily Extract - to smooth and comfort
  • black tea extract - to plump and brighten
