Why we love it
Facial Pilates is face firming massage method that has been passed down by Eco Your Skin Spa’s aestheticians for over 25 years. Aestheticians will perform special massage techniques that work to exercise facial muscles to help firm sagging muscles and tighten the appearance of fine lines so that skin looks younger. This mask is used as the last step of the popular Facial Pilates service for its immediate lifting and firming effects.
About Eco Your Skin
Skin Lab L started off as one location with the idea of deeply personalizing skincare treatments that range from convenient twenty-minute sessions to intensive two-hour sessions. When clients come in, they first receive a consultation that includes having their face scanned in a machine that identifies the “age” of their skin according to different concerns, like dryness, wrinkles, or pigmentation. The appropriate treatment is then hand-selected to target clients’ individual needs — and this personalized service combined with incredible products that deliver dramatic results began to create buzz in Seoul.
Soon, Skin Lab L became two spas, then three, then fifty. Today, decades after their first spa opening, Skin Lab L is a giant in the Korean beauty industry, with over fifty locations and five hundred estheticians.
What’s more incredible, though, is their devoted following — a client once is a client for life. Skin Lab L’s most popular service isn’t their à la carte service, but their membership service where clients purchase multiple sessions at a time, knowing they’ll be returning regularly. Every Skin Lab L always has a treatment in session, and, if you’re into celebrity spotting, step into their flagship location in Chungdamdong, and you might just spot an A-lister or two. Come back the following week, and you might see that same A-lister again. That devotion is just how it is at Skin Lab L.
But what does this mean for your skin?
The products Skin Lab L uses in their spas are the same sold by Eco Your Skin for at-home use. The formulas haven’t been watered down or altered, so, if you think about it, five hundred aestheticians working on multiple clients a day means that Eco Your Skin’s products are used on thousands of clients every single day. Further, before Eco Your Skin launches any retail products for at-home use, they use them first in facials at Skin Lab L — because results are immediately visible after facials, client feedback is immediate as well — and only release the most popular, effective treatments. That means that every single Eco Your Skin product is thoroughly pre-vetted, not only by experts but by thousands of regular, everyday clients before even hitting retail shelves.
Before you think that clients are used as guinea pigs, all the formulas are first created by Eco Your Skin’s partner lab in collaboration with all five hundred aestheticians who must test the products and provide input. Before the products touch clients’ skin, there are literally hundreds of experts all over the formulas, ensuring that they’ll be gentle on skin while providing impressive results and making skin feel great, whether the products are used during facials at Skin Lab L or at home.
As you can imagine, this means long product development lead times and a lot of built-up anticipation before Eco Your Skin launches new products for at-home use, but we at Glass Angel wouldn’t have it any other way. This intensive filtering and vetting process is what makes Eco Your Skin so special and unique as a brand, and it’s what makes for some of the most unique and effective products we’ve seen.
How to use
- After cleansing your face, pat your face dry.
- Apply a thin layer to your face and neck, careful to avoid your eye and lip areas.
- Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, as the mask works to lift and firm skin.
- Rinse it off using tepid water with your hands or with a gentle sponge.
- Follow it up with your serums, essences, and moisturiser!
Angel Tip: This mask isn’t just limited to your face. You can apply it to your neck for a lifting effect that helps firm up a double chin and your jawline area. You can also use it for a non-surgical breast lift, by applying it from the pit of your stomach to the outer chest area, all the way up to your collarbone. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes as you would if you were applying it to your face.
