Cosmedix Micro Defense Microbiome Sheet Mask
With technology backed by clinical studies, Cosmedix Bioshape Firming Mask lifts and smooths the appearance of the skin, thanks to Oat Kernel Extract (Osilift), a sugar-based ingredient that adheres to the skin’s surface and creates an elastic and flexible “lifting film.” The skin is smoothed both immediately and over the long-term. Acetyl dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester (Idealift) is a powerful peptide that helps skin resist sagging for a firmer appearance. Botanical extracts provide antioxidant protection, helping to defend skin against harsh environmental aggressors. Shea Butter nourishes and soothes irritated skin, while helping to hydrate and retain moisture.
