This new product is a highly active gel based mask that combines the Elemis patented Tri-Enzyme Technology with anti ageing Tetra Peptide, Amazonian Acerola Cherry, White Truffle, Great Burdock, Erysiumum and amino acids to encourage effective resurfacing of the skin’s surface.
1 ) Retexturising enzymes smooth out skin’s surface
2 ) Targets uneven skin texture, fine lines and blemishes
3 ) Balances the skin’s pH levels leaving it shine free
Elemis Tri-Enzyme Technology adapts to the individual’s skin micro flora & condition, an important factor given that everyone’s skin is different. When the skin’s acid mantle drops below 4.5pH, enzymatic action decreases dramatically, resulting in rapid ageing. Elemis Tri-Enzyme Technology uses the synergy of organic acids with micro-encapsulated enzymes to support the micro flora, enabling safe and highly effective skin resurfacing.
Noella Gabriel, Elemis’ Director of Product and Treatment Development, said: ” After years of research we wanted to bring clients a resurfacing gel mask that is an active system to ‘ take home ‘. Sadly, in the last few years, we have constantly been confronted with customers suffering with damaged skin from too harsh and abrasive treatments which have left their skin unsafely thin on the surface, very sensitive and in need of TLC. At Elemis we are proud to be able to offer a safe, yet powerful resurfacing programme that works naturally with the skin’s natural resources. It is our promise that we only create products that adapt to the individual’s skin as everyone’s skin is different. This Gel Mask gives skin a remarkable, visible radiance. “
The Tri-Enzyme Programme includes a resurfacing homecare regime designed to address concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, acne and superficial scarring and uneven pigmentation.

This gel mask is less irritating than most peeling / exfoliating / renewing mask, but I could still feel a very slight tingling sensation upon application. The texture is rather creamy, and rinse off easily. It’s great at getting rid of flakiness & dryness, brightening & evening the complexion.
My skin was neither reddened nor taut after usage; it appears more even and semi-matt. My pores are still as visible as they were though.
The pump dispenser makes using this mask effortless, not to mention it only takes 8 – 10 minutes to work.
I had not noticed any wrinkle busting effect, and unlike most Elemis products, this doesn’t smell as ” green ” and ” fresh “.
