I wonder what skin problems mermaids face. Does their skin ever get dry and wrinkled up while they live their entire lives underwater? Ariel can dream of being human all she wants but if she’s got skin like a true reptile, then maybe it’s better down where it’s wetter.
On the other hand, I shudder at the image of the chilling, eerie depths of the ocean, where even the fishes have their own built-in lights so they can see. Maybe being human is better after all. And if you really don’t want scales to go with, especially sometimes after piling your face with so much makeup that your skin goes dry, here’s a product you can and should try – the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa.
I’m not going to lie; I love this product! I was initially quite apprehensive of trying this nighttime mask out because, well, it’s blue.
Are you sure you want that stuff on your face? It looks so dubious! But hey. There’s always a first for everything. Lo and behold, this is the first blue coloured skincare product I’ve ever used and fallen in love with.
Although it’s labelled as “tested on sensitive skin,” I normally take this with a pinch of salt. You have no idea how many products that are so-called “suitable for sensitive skin” I’ve lost faith in. As I suffer from slight rosacea and atopic dermatitis, I’m very wary of everything that goes on it. But the first night I tried this moisturising mask, I was sold. Completely.
Aqua, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Squalene, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide, CI 42090, CI 42053, Dimethiconol, Parfum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Biosaccharide Gum-1 and Xanthan Gum.
There are two ways to use this mask. One as a sleeping mask once or twice a week, using a thick layer each time. Another way is to use it as a normal bedtime moisturiser, applying a thin layer each time. I use this every night (and day) and when the morning comes, my skin is visibly plumped and seems fresher, as if it’s ready to take on the world. Even though the cream is blue, when applied onto the skin, it doesn’t leave a tint at all. It spreads well and smells like fun! I haven’t got any allergic reactions to this product, which is a major plus point for any skincare item out there. It doesn’t clog pores and my skin feels like it can breathe while I have this on.
You don’t have to go through all the drama that Ariel and Prince Eric went through to get your hands on this cream. It can easily be found at major pharmacies in Singapore, such as Guardian, or wherever you see Vichy products being sold. A 75ml bottle can last for some time, but do be careful of the glassware. That said, I’m sure no one plays Quidditch with their beloved beauty products!
