It is being touted as the ‘fastest anti-aging facial’ on the beauty market today, and therefore comes as no surprise when we tell you that it has sold out online and in stores. The Marks & Spencer Formula Advanced Skin Solutions Illumin-ATP 1 Min Facial costs £15 and is an industry first, as it works in just 60 seconds, meaning it is ideal for those of us with extra busy lives.
The most important of these ingredients is the ATP, which is packed with power boosting compounds that gives skin its energy, helping to transfer this energy where it is needed, and boosting the processes at a cellular level, such as metabolism and regrowth, which help to make skin look younger.
The algin in the facial mask gives a much needed source of moisture to the skin, always a good thing when it comes to anti-aging, and the exfoliating papaya extract clears away dead skin cells, revealing a smoother surface and a softer appearance. The combination of these three actions all provide a renewed complexion that appears to look brighter and has the appearance of younger skin.
The Marks & Spencer Formula Advanced Skin Solutions Illumin-ATP 1 Min Facial is especially designed for those who have dry skin and want an extra moisturizing boost. The product works very quickly to raise moisture levels in only one minute by ‘boosting micro circulation and reviving skin’ through exfoliation.
And if you use the product for a month, applying it once or twice a week, you’ll see ever better results, as your skin will look ‘noticeably less fatigued and dull’ and ‘more brighter and more luminous’, according to the Marks & Spencer website.
For those of you who are sensitive to certain ingredients in beauty products, you’ll be glad to know that this facial mask is hypoallergenic, paraben and alcohol free, it is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans and all skin types and all ages, and it is made in an eco-factory.
And if you need further convincing, when the researchers behind the product tested it on 97 women with ‘dull or fatigued skin’, a whopping 94 per cent said that the M&S Formula Advanced Skin Solutions Illumin-ATP 1 Min Facial left their skin feeling renewed. The product was formulated at a Swiss laboratories with the help from Swiss skincare expert Dr Jacqueline Hill.
There is a word of warning about the product from celebrity facialist Nuz Shugaa, who says that people who have particularly sensitive skin should watch out for products that contain fruit enzymes: “Any fruit enzyme such as papaya will help to make the dullest skin glow, therefore your skin would be brighter. Cell renewal can happen with enzymes, however I would be careful on sensitive and young skin as it could break out. Some fruit enzymes can be harsh.”
Marks & Spencer Formula Advanced Skin Solutions Illumin-ATP 1 Min Facial is usually available to buy from the website at £15, but is currently sold out.
