What is a Hydrojelly™Mask?
Hydrojelly™ Masks are infused with electrolytes to boost skin hydration (just drinking water is not enough). The masks form a vacuum-like seal that compresses facial contours. These masks are formulated with refined algae, electrolytes and organic active ingredients to provide a unique silky texture and function as the mask blankets the skin. This intensive facial compression allows for complete absorption of organic nutrition and electrolytes to the deep layers of the skin (nutrition from the mask and also other ingredients still remaining on the skin from previous treatment). The masks have an instant cooling and soothing effect that is not only refreshing but helps firm, soothe and revitalize the skin for a natural subtle glow.
Our Hydrojelly™ Mask Bar at Lab contains 18 types of mask from Hyaluronic Acid to Egyptian Rose to Belgium Cacao (Chocolate!) depending on your skin needs and your therapists recommendations. We absolutely recommend giving these a try – they are unlike anything else.
An Intensive Aftercare Hydrojelly™ Mask is the perfect add on to any brazilian or bikini wax appointment. It helps soothe, eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, redness, disinfect skin and provides a natural anti microbial. A must try.
