Cattier is a french skincare brand you’ll find in most french parapharmacies. If you can’t find it in your country , you could attempt to order it from an online parapharmacy that carries this brand and have it delivered. Some online french pharmacies will have worldwide shipping ( though it can be a tad pricey ) or check out www.Amazon.fr . Alternatively , add this mask to your list of reasons of why you should visit France . *swoon*
Masque Éclat Lissant by Cattier is one of those products that I spotted , grabbed , read the ingredients list and put in my basket . I had no idea I’d love it to this extent , let alone blog about it.
It’s a rich, moisturising face mask full of good ingredients like argan oil, olive oil, Sodium Hyaluronate , jojoba oil, shea butter and a lot more of the good stuff. It claims to iron out any wrinkles, moisturise and make skin look more plump, youthful and give that much coveted glow. Even though I don’t have wrinkles yet, my face does tend to get dry with the air conditioning here in Dubai and I’m always interested in getting glowing skin.
Obviously, you apply it after exfoliating your face for best results. Afterwards you apply a good layer of the mask on your face and let it work its magic for 20 min or more. Once it feels dry or tacky , massage in whatever product is left onto your skin and wipe of any excess.
After doing this the first time, my face looked plump, refreshed, healthy, dewy and even my skin texture looked smoother . The synergy of all the ingredients made my face look like I had been away on a spacation in a relaxing boutique spa-hotel or just had a good night’s sleep ( meaning ; at least 8 hours without interruptions )
I suppose you could compare it to Sisley’s fleur express mask. The big difference though is the price. Sisley’s mask costs a whopping $140 for 60ml and this one costs around $15 for 50ml. It’s cheaper but I wouldn’t call it a dupe . However , they do both give very similar results even though the texture of each product is different .
Sisley’s mask is a translucent gel and Cattier’s a more of a white cream. So when you apply Cattier’s mask , it shows and you can’t exactly leave it on under make-up, for example. Unless you wipe off the excess residue of course , something you don’t need to do with Sisley’s express flower gel mask.
Also , if you’ve ever tried Dermalogica’s skin hydrating mask (75ml)- which costs $ 41- then you’ll really like this one. Cattier’s masque éclat is equally as hydrating but – in my opinion – better at really nourishing while simultaneously hydrating the skin. Again, they also differ in texture – Dermalogica’s masque is gel-based . This one isn’t .
Bottom line – this face mask is a dream to apply , quick to perform , nourishing and easier on your wallet than some of the cult-favourites.
If you ever get a chance , try it! Pourquoi pas ?
