1. BREATHE TO PREPARE THE SKIN
Before applying the Mask, use your fingertips to slowly and firmly press on pressure points on your chin, upper part of your face, temples and lip contour. Breathe in when you press and breathe out when you release the pressure.
2. APPLY THE MASK WITH A BRUSH
Gently slide the brush over the Mask to obtain the required amount. Apply a thin layer, moving from the centre to the outer part of the face. - For an instant "radiance boost", leave the Mask for 10 minutes on cleansed skin. - For overnight replenishment, use the Mask as a night care 3 times a week. Remove any excess with a dry cloth, then massage in until it has been completely absorbed.
Brush care: After use, rinse the brush and leave to dry naturally before placing back into its pouch.
15 years of research on skin longevity
The orchid, a rare and precious raw ingredient, is the very essence of the exceptional complete care range Orchidee Imperiale. A genuine longevity prodigy, the orchid is the most developed species in the plant kingdom. Convinced of its outstanding potential, Guerlain has set up its first ever research centre ever to be devoted to a single ingredient: the Orchidarium®. Guerlain Research runs three interrelated and complementary centres:
- The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland)
- The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France)
- The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China)
The Mask is enriched with the combined action of two extracts with soothing and relaxing properties which help restore skin wellness: Seed extract from Tephrosia purpurea, a tropical plant which originates from India and is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, and alpha-bisabolol, obtained from the essential oil of candeia.
