Café Gommage mask might sound to you like Starbuck’s latest specialty coffee, but Gommage actually means “to erase,” and Gin Amber Beauty’s Café Gommage mask “erases” dead skin cells from the skin’s surface with a combination of active ingredients that gently exfoliate, while delivering unparalleled hydration, healing and brightness. Café Gommage contains Arabica Coffee, imparting a delicious, natural scent to the mask, but also an ingredient that targets discoloration, improves circulation and contains tannins which are known anti-inflammatories and natural skin-tighteners.
The ingredients in this mask are all skin-care superstars like: coconut oil, wild-crafted willow and juniper, MSM, Vitamins C and B5 (panthenol), glycolic acid, squalane, green tea (more tannins), sugar cane, Co-enzyme Q10, peptides, lemongrass, organic licorice root, organic rosehip, cayenne, tamanu oil extract, a fruit basket of Oregon grape, orange, lemon and apple, Japanese Honeyflower—as well as many other skin-nutritious ingredients.
What do all these wonderful things do? Well, willow and juniper bark for instance contain salicylic acid, a BHA a natural exfoliant which helps skin gently shed dead cells and clear pores, and can also stimulate new cell formation. Tamanu oil has potent healing powers, works on scars and skin conditions like acne, and soothes numerous skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema and age spots. MSM is an anti-aging building block for collagen and connective tissue, and Co-enzyme Q10 battles the loss of collagen and elastin, and is a strong antioxidant—neutralizing harmful free radicals that are a major cause of aging. Rosehip oil is packed with essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid making it richly hydrating. And your skin easily absorbs it, allowing its antioxidants to travel deep into the skin's layers. American and Japanese honeyflower add antiseptic and further nourishing and hydrating properties to the maks.
Gin Amber Beauty’s Café Gommage mask is the perfect skin-rejuvenating treat, but don’t use it right after dermarolling! The extra-gentle, biodegradable jojoba beads will slightly warm the skin as you apply the product, and the hydrating, soothing, plumping and tightening elements penetrate surface layers to leave you with supple, luminous results.
