This Joanna Vargas Face Mask Made Me Glow Like Meghan Markle on Her Royal Tour – PureWow

What Is the Eden Instant Lift Mask?

Though it may look like any other face mask, this one’s made of rejuvenating bamboo, along with other all-natural ingredients and antioxidants, like fruit extracts, hyaluronic acid and coenzyme Q10, to promote a visible, luminous glow. The company also claims that it’s anti-aging, meaning it will reportedly help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. No matter what your skin type is, you should look forward to more hydrated-looking skin if this product is doing its job right.

The Test

To give this a go, I slathered it on once a week for three weeks straight. If you use face masks, you’ve probably encountered one that unfolded weirdly and left you wondering which side should go on your face. I didn’t have that problem with this baby, since it has a wrapped plastic backing for effortless removal and application (it took me less than a minute to put on).

Once I did, it only took about 20 minutes to soak in, and there was no need to wash my face or follow it up with additional products. For me, that meant I could get in an entire episode and a good chunk of ice cream without any interruptions. But I was even more impressed with the floral, peony smell that wasn’t overbearing and the fact that my face didn’t sting throughout the process—it had more of a lightweight, airy feel. Plus, I didn’t feel restrained (which came in handy when I was chowing down on ice cream).

Does It Live Up to Its Claims? 

Though I didn’t pay much attention to the immediate results following my treatment, as some of the formula was leftover on my face, I had to do a double-take in the bathroom mirror the following morning. It took a minute to fully register why my skin was radiating like I had just gotten a professional facial. I quickly realized it was the mask. While I can’t speak to the company’s claims of wrinkle- and fine line-reduction (my skin isn’t there yet, knock on wood!), my glow lasted all throughout the following day. That’s why I have to agree with Markle in her praise for it: This was the pick-me-up my skin needed, especially since I’ve been transitioning my skincare routine from winter to spring.

After 48 hours, the glow wasn’t as visible, but at least I got to feel like a dewy royal for a full 24 hours. Plus, my skin seems to have kicked its winter dullness.

What can we say? Meghan knows her stuff.
