I have been working in the tanning industry for 6+ years and one of the perks is of course, free tanning. Like millions of other people, I know the risks and side effects of tanning, but can’t seem to ditch that golden glow I can only achieve from a tanning bed. However, after all these years, the exposure to those harsh UV rays seems to finally be catching up to me and I’ve started developing unwanted premature wrinkles, specifically on my forehead. While I’ve cut back on tanning tremendously, the damage is already done and I can’t deny that these little lines on my face make me somewhat self-conscious. In searching for a safe and effective solution to make them less noticeable, I came across the Retinol Wrinkle Solution Thermal Mask by Vivo Per Lei.
When I received the product in the mail, I was honestly impressed with how stylishly it was packaged. It’s tightly sealed in a box and the design is simple, yet sleek. The mask itself comes in a jar and is a whipped, creamy consistency. The quality, look and feel of a true luxury product without the sky-high price point to match! I also really like that Vivo Per Lei doesn’t do product testing on animals and their products are paraben-free (meaning they don’t have potentially harmful preservatives in them that can be found in some cosmetic and personal care brands).
Aside from diminishing wrinkles and lines, it also unclogs pores and gets rid of dirt and impurities in the skin. This clay-based mask is unique in that it heats up on your skin after you apply it. A blend of retinol (the key ingredient in wrinkle reduction), Vitamins C & E and a handful of other ingredients work together to leave the skin feeling rejuvenated.
My Vivo Per Lei Results
This product is unique in that the consistency completely changes once it’s applied to the skin. As it heats up, it changes from the whipped texture to I would say the best way I can describe it is almost a glazed/melted wax consistency? It also doesn’t get unbearably hot or anything, just slightly warm on the skin. I would recommend not caking it on too thick because once the consistency changes, it may start to drip if you apply too much.
I have been using this mask about 2-3 times per week for just a few weeks and have had some really great results already. This is the only thing I have changed up about my skincare routine and I can see a significant difference in how much less noticeable my wrinkles are and the overall texture of my face has improved. My skin feels incredibly smooth and has that refreshing “clean” feeling. The mask has a fresh scent to it and I have not experienced any unusual skin reactions or irritation from using it. It’s like getting a spa treatment right at home. What’s not to love about that?
Here are my before and after comparison pictures from just the last two weeks (same camera, no makeup or editing in either photo):
How to Use this Product:
Start with a clean face and apply the Retinol Wrinkle Solution Thermal Mask in a thin even layer onto the skin (comes with a small spatula that makes application really easy with no mess). Once applied, the mask will start to heat up slightly. Let the mask sit for about 10 minutes or so, then rinse off with cold water. For added heat and greater results, you can also apply the Retinol Wrinkle Solution Serum.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. It isn’t going to magically make all of your wrinkles disappear completely, but certainly diminishes them without any major treatment and is very reasonably priced. I feel much more confident in the way my skin looks and feels since using this product and plan to keep using it for long-lasting results.
