We call it a cheat’s facial.
When you don’t have the time (or the funds) to be swanning off to the salon for a full-on treatment, a good-quality sheet mask is the next best thing.
Not only can you pop it on at home while you catch up on work or kick back for a Netflix binge, but you can also enjoy all the noticeable plumping and line-softening benefits when you need it; after a day at the beach, or just before a big night out.
The latest little packet of quick-fix magic to land on our lap is the newest launch from the expert team behind Sisu Clinic, founded in 2018 by Cork doctor-brother duo Dr. James Cotter and Dr. Brian Cotter, in collaboration with local CEO Pat Phelan.
The first product in the new Sisi Solutions range, now available for purchase in Sisu on Oliver Plunkett Street and online, The Lavish Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask helps hydrate and strengthen skin to visibly reduce signs of aging.
“I began developing the idea of a bespoke skincare line for Sisu in 2020 – during COVID-19 our clinics were closed down, and with the extra time I wanted to find a way to make my patients feel beautiful from the comfort of their own home,” explains Dr. Brian Cotter.
“It has been quite a journey – I spoke to women in my life, of all different ages, and I found out what their pain points for skincare products were, and how Sisu could create something better. The feedback so far has been astounding – not only does the skin look better and brighter when bare, but in the case of the facemask, the application of make-up is much smoother after their use.”
So, does it work?
Yep. Dr Cotter’s story checks out. I popped on one of these babies for 20 minutes to let the powerful blend of tripeptides work its magic on my poor parched face.
My skin absorbed the formula like a sponge and afterwards I was left with the rosy glow of somebody who does a double cleanse before breakfast and drinks 12 litres of coconut water before lunch. Game changer.
The effects were clear the next morning too; my skin was plumper, brighter, and more even. I used a little less foundation than usual to show it off.
