I have used Mastey de Paris Velvetant Skin Renewal Complex on and off now for several years, especially during the winter months. I find it works especially well as a night cream. Because it contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids it should not be used during the day and the daily use of a sunscreen is mandatory. I use it only on my face and only at night and make sure to use sunscreen (Mastey de Paris Moiste Facial Moisturizer with SPF) during the day. Even on cloudy, overcast winter days, there are damaging and aging UVA and UVB rays.
Velvetant absorbs extremely well and leaves the skin feeling soft and silky. It has helped to even my skin tone and increase my skin's hydration. Over the years I have tried many Alpha Hydroxy Acid products that have irritated my extremely sensitive skin or caused it to breakout. Velvetant is very gentle and I have recently begun using it as a spot treatment for breakouts because it seems to speed their healing and reduce inflammation.
Velvetant is a white cream with a slightly thick consistency and a very light, pleasing, gender neutral scent. It contains Mastey's pioneering Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) as well as vitamins, minerals, plant derived pseudo-collagen, and of course, Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
According to Mastey, Velvetant Skin Renewal Complex "Encourages the cell renewal process by lifting away dull, drying surface skin, without stripping away the vital moisture or protein. This mild renewal treatment promotes a soft skin texture, and refines fine lines. The results reveal dramatically smoother, more supple, healthier skin with new found vibrancy.Mastey Velvetant Skin Renewal Complex is a skin renewal complex contain Alpha Hydroxy acids from mixed fruit sources. It can be used on the face and/or body to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles."
Mastey de Paris Velvetant Skin Renewal Complex is available online at the Mastey de Paris website or in some better salons and spas. Mastey products are not widely distributed in my part of the country so I therefore order mine online. It comes packaged in a 3.38 ounce tube and retails for $18.00.
