Le Metier de Beaute Ultra Hydration Eye Mask...Details and Review!

Above: The Le Metier de Beaute Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo 

Long teaching hours and the constant running of our centralized heating have certainly taken a toll on my eyes as of late; dryness, puffiness and overall fatigue are the results of compromised sleep and an arid environment.  Thankfully, Le Metier de Beaute has just released the latest in skincare innovation, the Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo!  This cooling, restorative treatment is designed to valiantly combat dehydration and in one fifteen minute session.

The Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo...

  • Is translucent...its seaweed-based masks deliver intense hydration to re-energize and restore the under eye area
  • Has a patented shape that applies like "second -skin," instantly cooling and calming on contact
  • Contains moisturizing actives combine to diminish redness, soothe lines and reduce puffiness for a noticeably smoother lid look
  • Is portable...the individual sachets (each set contains 8 sachets) for convenient on-the-go, during travel or post-workout.
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Algin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Soluble Collagen, Polyquarternium-51, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Potassium Hydroxide, Ceramide 3, Mannitol, Carrageenan, Sodium Polygamma Glutamate, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Laureth-12, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol.

Above: Each sachet comes with two eye masks that adhere to the under eye area like a second skin.  
The end of an excruciatingly long week proved to be the perfect time to experience the wonders of this mask duo...prior to use, my eyes were tired, puffy and dehydrated! 

Using the mask duo was incredibly easy...I peeled opened the individual sachet at the far corner, removed the thin plastic tray containing the masks and carefully remove each mask from their individual compartments.  The masks themselves are gelatinous in nature...almost like a thicker contact lens (I've worn them for years, so it was the first comparison that entered my mind).  They are flexible, malleable and submerged in a hydrating elixir.  

The following video (also found on my YouTube Channel) provides greater detail on my experience...

Once applied, my under eye area felt cool and relaxed and unlike other masks, this rendition never felt tight.  In fact, the hydrating process was palpable!

Above and below: The entire process was so relaxing, that I decided to lay down and enjoy decompressing.

Bottom Line: After a very relaxing 15 minute treatment, the masks removed easily and neatly.  Upon removal, my under eye area was transformed!  The skin was perfectly balanced, extremely smooth and silky to the touch.  The next day, the effects were still intact; my area felt refreshed and restored and I felt ready for the start of another monstrously long week.

For those interested in trying this amazing treatment (which retails for $150 for a set of eight), it is currently available at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.  If you are a Southern California local like I am, I encourage you to swing by the Le Metier de Beaute counter at Saks Fifth Avenue at South Coast Plaza (714/ 540-3233) to take a peek.  If you remember, please let them know that The Beauty Professor sent you...I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on this superb product!
