You know something is good when top spas have their own nickname for it! Aestheticians refer to emerginC’s vitamin C and retinol mask as the perfect “Hot Date Mask;” one that can solve any beauty dilemma. The clay-based mask makes a huge difference even after only one use. Lemon juice brightens skin and vitamin C is always a benefit. With the help of retinol and green tea, skin tone is more even and dead skin cells are gone. You need to look amazing for your Valentine’s date in less than 24 hours? No product is better.
