Power facial

New from south Korea, the franz dual face mask system uses microcurrent technology to deliver nutrients deeper into the skin without plugs, batteries or wires. The system comes with two sheet masks. first, apply the “enriching mask”, which is soaked with such hydrating and anti-aging ingredients as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, collagen, peptides, vitamins, biotin, copper and more. Next, activate the second “empowering” mask, which looks and feels like a felt sheet mask, embedded with a silver metal grid pattern, by squeezing the tube of ionic solution provided onto the receptors on either side. Then, just overlay on top the first sheet and let the microcurrent do its job over the next 20 to 25 minutes. We did not feel any moving currents, but our skin looked incredibly hydrated afterwards.
