I’m also a bit irritated with this product, the Sensai Cellular Performance Mask. It’s easily one of the best ‘flash’ masks that I’ve used – beautifully comforting on the skin, very hydrating and a real saviour for winter skin that has had life sucked out of it by weather and heating. BUT, how would anyone know that on first sight? Sensai is an expensive Japanese range but it’s really show casing Japanese beauty products at the very top of the performance range – and yet, there is nothing about the packaging that would indicate that is the case.
You can use it in the morning as a skin wake up or a thin layer overnight as a sleeping cream. The key ingredient across the Sensai range is Koishimaru Silk which apparently contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid. Having tested this product more than once, it’s easy to say that my skin is definitely smoother, more hydrated, more comfortable and even more ‘awake’ after using. So, it does a good job. I don’t know how this brand recruits new consumers – particularly in the online arena – because the way it looks doesn’t reflect how great it is. I guess it’s word of mouth, counter experience and loyalty that keeps it going in the UK. I feel a bit frustrated that it looks so pared back and uninspiring when it’s such a good peformer. Anyway, its £65 HERE. A little goes a long way and so you would hope at this price, but if you’re in the mood for a real skin treat, I don’t think you’d be disappointed. In my opinion, it’s much more suitable for drier skin types being a blend of oils in a rich cream.
