Le Metier always brings out a little bit of nostalgia for me. It was one of the first brands I discovered and fell for when I began my beauty blog. While the company has morphed, it is still a staple on my vanity. I have to give credit to Neiman Marcus (which is my favorite luxury beauty spot) for this outstanding luxury mask. I was down at the Dallas Northpark store when this mask first launched and was able to give it a whirl. It was so fabulous that I was very reluctant to even put on makeup for my return trip to Tulsa.
You can imagine my delight when Neiman Marcus sent over my very own Le Metier de Beaute CHEM60 Pro-Peel and GLOW10ai Mask Set to have here at home. This weekend I dove in to see if the at-home use was just as wonderful as the in-store experience. I wasn’t disappointed – my skin was left just as healthy, glowing and even as it did months ago back in Dallas.
Step one is the CHEM60 Pro-Peel. It sounds daunting, but this is one of the most gentle peels I have used. A blend of salicylic and glycolic acids works against dead skin cells. You can leave it on for as short as 60 seconds but I go for a full five minutes. My skin wasn’t red in the slightest and there was no tingling. But my skin was brighter with the dullness removed from my tone.
GLOW10ai Mask infuses skin with nourishing goodness. Antioxidants, hydration and vitamins help renew and refresh. The effect also helps with dullness and hyper-pigmentation. But my favorite part is the satisfying peel-off step when the thin sheet of gel comes off in one fantastic sheet. The GLOW10ai Mask is what really takes my complexion to a new level.
I keep the second mask on for a full 15 minutes, but you could apply Glow in a thinner layer if you are in a rush. Make sure to avoid the hairline and eyebrows in both steps. I especially appreciate the dial nozzle on the peel tube that keeps the mask fresh and separate from the brush applicator. And keeps leakage to a minimum.
