That you use with: Clinique Sonic System Massage Treatment Applicator - $41 - creates a massage action that gives skin a rosy glow while cooling and refreshing skin - which attaches to your Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush - which is what I really like about this whole deal, they aren't making you go out and buy a whole system, just an attachment for something you already (or should already) have!
It's easy to use and just takes a minute:
Apply a generous amount of the mask all over face and neck. Avoid the eye area.
Place massage applicator on chin and sweep across the jawline up toward the ear. Repeat on the other side of the jawline.
Place massage applicator at the corner of the mouth and move up along one cheek in a circular motion using the wave pattern. Repeat on the other cheek.
Glide toward the jawline and chin, meeting at the chin and reversing to the sides of the face. Move gently toward the jawline and continue down the side of the neck to finish.
Reapply product onto applicator and press button for an additional 30 seconds.
Begin at center of forehead and make small circular motions outward towards the temples. Pause at temples and circle 2-3 times. Begin again in center of forehead and repeat out toward opposite temple side.
Finish by placing massage tool between the brow area where tension lines are most visible. Move gently in up and down motion to stretch and relax the skin.
The mask can stay on the skin for 5-10 minutes and you can either tissue off the excess or sleep in it and let it soak in.
Don't have the applicator, no worries, you can also use the mask alone!
