SVR Hydracid C50 Smoothing Radiance Mask

We are constantly told that Vitamin C is a highly unstable molecule and it is almost impossible to use it to its full potential and concentration. The most important factor is how it is delivered to get the very best from it as an active and from different brands, I have had products containing Vitamin C as a serum, in a paste, suspended in silicone, as a booster, a gel and today I am sharing the SVR Hydracid C50 Masque Eclat (£30 here*)
SVR Hydracid C50 Smoothing Radiance Mask
If you have never come across SVR as a brand before, it was born in 1962 visionary pharmacists Simone and Robert VĂ©ret created SVR: a dermatological laboratory whose key aim was to create "BEAUTIFUL SKIN". Over the years, their son and later their grandson transformed this small French family brand into a true star in the field of dermo-cosmetics.  Today, I have a product called Hydracid C50 Smoothing Radiance Masque Eclat which uses an aerosol to preserve 100% of Vitamin C’s effectiveness.

Give me any product that sounds slightly quirky or kooky and I am wanting to try it almost as soon as I get my hands on it, so from SVR, a mask that comes as an aerosol really did capture my attention.  Said to brighten and refine your complexion, this SVR Hydracid C50 Smoothing Radiance Mask, is best described as being a micro-peeling foam-mask that delivers smoothing, softening and anti-ageing benefits.

Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and what is referred to as a unique Retexturizing Radiance Complex at 50% concentration, the mousse-textured mask works to maximise skin radiance while plumping out the appearance of wrinkles.   Shaking the can and pumping it onto the palms of my hand to apply to my face, it is actually quite soothing, I haven't used a mousse mask like this before and what I love is how it feels on my skin.  Left on for 15 minutes to work its magic, you look almost as though you have the start of a bubble mask, but the foam dissipates and absorbs into the skin.  Once those 15 minutes are up, you need to remove any excess with a damp cotton wool pad or cloth and then rinse your face.  You can also leave the mask on overnight to really give your skin a boost too.

The SVR Hydracid C50 Smoothing Radiance Mask formula combines several active ingredients which includes:

  • Vitamin C 25% optimized complex, a radiance active, antioxidant that unifies the complexion and illuminates the skin,
  • Gluconolactone with a retexturising effect which smoothes and refines the skin texture,
  • Hyaluronic acid with a repulping effect that fills wrinkles and fine lines.
It delivers what SVR call a superficial micro-peel effect and this is to help refine and retexturise the skin and in doing so, leaves it with a smoother texture, improved hydration and enhanced luminosity, add to that the inclusion of Niacinamide for soothing and Red Algae for moisturising, this is quite unlike any product I have used for some time.

Priced at £30 and available online from Lookfantastic, Feelunique and other boutiques, this is one product you need to have in your stash if you have never used anything with Vitamin C in it,  if you feel your skin needs a workout and a boost and for the foam!
