The power players that replaced P50 & retinol in my beauty regime

If you haven’t already heard, holi (bright) is our first Agent resurfacing glass face mask that has revolutionized my skincare regime and how my skin shows up every day.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have used retinol and P50 / prescription Retin-A and SPF for over a decade (inspired by my Mother who has the most exquisite skin and used Retin-A since she was 22 years old). It truly was my ride or die product but since I have formulated holi(bright) I have actually totally stopped using retinol and P50 which is honestly insane and something I never thought I would be saying!

The holi (bright) mask is a total game-changer. It resurfaces your skin and does it in such a deeply hydrating, calming, and soothing manner. It also really just gives you this glow that I just don’t think you can get elsewhere. I’m also in love with the silk peptides that we formulated into the mask.

I use it three times a week, ensuring that my skin has been cleansed and I always leave it on overnight.

Interested in the key ingredients of the formulation that keeps selling out every time we re-stock in our suppliers?

Well, keep reading.

The French Silk peptides are such a game changing ingredient. I’d go as far as to say they are a miracle. The 100% natural silk proteins derived from the silkworm cocoon, packed with nutrients that brighten and revitalize skin tone.

They’re major for hydration because they are made up of a combination of smaller aminos, as well as bigger proteins called oligopeptides. This combination hydrates the skin from within because they are combinations that the body actually NEEDS to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

The silk peptides are collagen stimulators because the peptides act as messengers. They communicate with your body to encourage it to produce more elastin and collagen which is a critical part of the aging process. This anti-aging power makes them arguably more effective than some products that just work topically on the top layer of your skin. Silk peptides really get to work.

The benefits don’t end there though. Peptides also help your entire skin barrier strengthen, while also being anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibacterial and, on top of this, I’m also obsessed with how french silk peptides are packed with antioxidant properties.

Studies have also shown that peptides have notable effects on ‘chronologically aged or photo-damaged skin’. It’s thought that peptides are thought to be resistant to ultraviolet rays and also can stop the development of harmful bacteria - helping to reduce the likelihood of spots, pimples and acne breakouts, as well as reducing the damage that daily sun exposure can cause to your skin. 

The French Silk Peptides are amazing for all types of skin and make this mask a key player for everyone who wants to try it.

They absorb moisture deep into the skin and they work to totally overhaul your skin tone, giving it the most amazing, glass, smooth silk-like feel while reducing redness, inflammation and irritation.

What else?

I love the extracts of the purest aloe vera gel - truly calming, these hydrate, moisturize and replenish your skin without ever feeling greasy. The high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid was formulated into the mask for its intensely hydrating properties and it literally pulls moisture to the surface of the skin, giving your complexion an instant appearance of radiance, volume, and luminosity.

The Vitamin C and Pitaya Extracts deliver a punch of powerful antioxidants that reduce the appearance of fine lines, redness and age spots, Pitaya is also has highly bioavailable vitamin minerals — zinc, magnesium, and potassium, helping skin to feel firm and lifted, while delivering maximum hydration and nourishment and minimizing the look of wrinkles and fine lines.

Cucumber & beetroot extracts are powerful too. The cucumber helps to soothe dehydrated skin, nourish and re-hydrate, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the beetroot extract is loaded with more Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, folate, potassium, manganese, phosphorus and iron, helping to refine skin texture and reduce dead skin cells across the board.

Guys, this mask has revolutionized my face. I have never looked better without make up and I feel more confident than I ever have.

I hope that you will feel the same too. That’s why I made it.
