Premier Concentrated Facial Serum with Vitamins E and C by Dead Sea Premier Review February 26, 2012

Today I will be reviewing Premier Concentrated Facial Serum with Vitamins E and C by Dead Sea Premier from my February MyGlam bag.

In the February bag everyone got two products from Dead Sea, one of which was the Cinderella mask, and this was the other one I received.  Dead Sea claims that it works by “First, lifts the skin and keeps it taut. Second, it tightens skin upon application. Third, it lavishes the skin with vital nourishment of concentrated Vitamin C and E to improve its texture and diminish fine lines. It has extraordinary water retention capabilities. So as it lifts it helps saturate skin with replenishing moisture. It helps correct overall skin texture and appearance.

The serum is a medium viscosity clear gel – it is a little thinner than corn syrup. I was able to get two full applications out of the little packet. It was OK, not great but for the $28.00 from Amazon or $149 from Dead Sea. I, again, will stick with my Sephora moisturizer.

Will I get it again? No, it just didn’t live up to what it claimed to be.

Will I finish the sample? Yes, I already did, this was a tiny sample so I didn’t have a chance to use it more than twice.

Sample Value:  0.07 oz with the full size product sold as 1.7 oz on Amazon for $28.00. The value of this sample is $1.15 or $6.13 based off the Dead Sea price.

Premier Instant Stretching and Revitalizing Mask (aka Cinderella Mask) from Dead Sea Premier Review February 25, 2012

Today I bring you the Premier Instant Stretching and Revitalizing Mask (aka Cinderella Mask) from Dead Sea Premier. This was one of the products featured in February’s MyGlam bag. We were each given 2 Dead Sea samples, and this was the one that everyone got.  Another mask! I went from never having used a mask 1 year ago, to now having tried at least 8 different masks (and owning 3 full size ones).  I’ve really grown to love and appreciate masks and their awesome properties, so I figured – what the hey, I’ll try it.

This mask is touted for being pretty awesome – or at least Dead Sea believes it is pretty awesome with its $110.00 price tag on the full size of this item (or you can get it on Amazon for $20.00).  I personally am challenged when faced with an idea like this – how can it be worth $110 but the same product is sold for 20? Something just doesn’t mesh.  But hey, I’ll try it.

The consistency seemed like a thick tinted moisturizer or a bb cream. It felt kinda like Fango Brillante which I will review another time.

The directions said to leave it on for about 10 minutes. I did that, by the end of the 10 minutes it started firm up.  Now Dead Sea claims that wearing the mask will “result in a “lifting” effect and with fresh and younger looking skin. This mask stimulates and activates the metabolism of the skin tissue and, in return, it reduces evidence of wrinkles. This mask does miracles and that’s why it is also named Cinderella Mask.”
