Racinne: Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque Review

I was recently given the opportunity to try out a few of Racinne’s products from their Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series.  If you’re unfamiliar with Racinne it’s a skincare company based out of Canada focused on biotechnology and the use of various herbs to create skincare lines aimed at treating different skin types and focus issues.  Racinne has three different lines, Ultimate Youth Power, Ultimate Hydra Perfection, and the one I sampled, Ultimate Aqua Blanc.  
I had requested to sample Aqua Blanc because its ingredients best suited my skin type.  According to Racinne’s site, Aqua Blanc products contain an “effective brightening formula penetrat[ing] deep into the core of skin cells to facilitate self revitalization and regeneration, correcting enlarged pores, balancing oil distribution, reducing dark spots to reveal brightened, glowing looking skin”.
I need that oil balance and the brightening agents, so I was super excited to try out the Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque.  When I first applied this mask it just resembled a thick moisturizer, no color or anything, and certainly not messy to apply.  The purpose of the Brightening Masque is to “promote skin rejuvenation, strengthen moisture level and reduces pigmentation”.  It also helps with UV damage, which unfortunately I think every young woman has to deal with these days.

I can say without a doubt it increased moisture level just in the short amount of time I had applied it.  The directions say to leave on for 15mins, wipe of excess, and then rinse your face.  I left it on for probably close to 25-30mins while I took a bubble bath.  Then I wiped it off and rinsed.  My skin felt so supple and soft, I was really impressed!
I have to say I wasn’t expecting to notice the effects instantly my first time using it, but I definitely saw a brightness in my face that wasn’t there before I applied it.

I would suggest using this product in the AM before going out on the weekend or something, since the brightness results really are instant you wouldn’t want to apply it at night and then go to sleep.  I’d say only apply in the evening if you’re about to go out and party the night away! 

I applied the mask again a about a week after first using it and had the same results, which tells me that the Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque is a consistent product, which is what I aim for when adding new products to my routine.

You can purchase the Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque and other Aqua Blanc products on the Racinne website!  Stay tuned for some more Racinne reviews coming soon.
