Now that temps are dropping, I’ve brought out the humidifier and I’ve upped my face mask … consumption, so to speak. The other new-to-me brand from Japan to cross my beauty path is this TAUT. The products are manufactured in Japan and right now they have three that make up the line so let’s investigate two of them.
This first one was created by the creator of the SK-II Facial Treatment Masks, which are a cult favorite, os it’s already got some fairy dust sprinkled on it from that alone. Introducing their Gold Standard Collagen Mask ($50/5 masks). These masks are one of those cloth ones that look really spooky to anyone looking at you but do wonders for the skin. It contains a blend of super anti-aging ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, Squalene, Hyaluronic acid and antioxidants.
While I’m not too wild about the parabens and preservatives in these, the pluses of this one seems to outweigh the minuses. Just 10-minutes, 2 to 3 times a week, and your skin will get through the upcoming chilly weather.
The other product they have in the line is one that works on beauty from the inside out. The Premium Collagen Replenishment Formula ($110/8 bottles) is an 80 calorie hydrolyzed collagen shot, which contains 13 grams in every 1.7oz serving. From what I have learned about these drinkable beauty supplements, this is a lot. So instead of apply your age-defying ingredients to your skin, you’re drinking them.
