1A All-Day Mask

So it’s been a really long while. The past 5 months have been a hectic flurry of sweat and literal tears. Having my own skincare line has always been THE dream. Ever since I was a teenager with bad acne that took years to get under control, I’ve been fascinated by the link between confidence and good skin. When you feel good in your own skin, everything becomes better. You feel like you can take on anything. That’s what I aspire to do: empower with every product.

Allies of Skin is the culmination of 2.5 years of R&D. Every formula is created from scratch and we adhere to a very strict formulation ethos: every product is formulated without Silicones, Mineral Oil, Petrochemicals, Parabens, Polyethylene Glycol, Sulfates, GMOs, Triclosan, DEA/TEA, Phthalates, Drying Alcohol, Synthetic Dyes and Fragrances.

Before every formula is approved, it undergoes multiple clinical tests. We ensure every product is Chirally Correct, Allergy-Tested, Dermatologist-Tested, Non-Comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and Non-Acnegenic (won’t cause acne).​ In fact through blind clinical study, our hero product, the 1A All-Day Mask was found to decrease the number of non-inflammatory acne lesions (open and closed comedones) by 36% after 28 days. This is one of the ways we prove the efficacy of the product.

The 1A All-Day Mask is a labor of love. It was the first product I created and I designed it to be the backbone of any and every regimen. This game-changer has a two-pronged strategy. At any given moment in time, the skin is bombarded with many external aggressors (UV rays, pollution, second-hand smoke, dehydrating air conditioning, etc). The 1A All-Day Mask first protects the skin with a breathable anti-pollution shield. This allows your skin to really focus on repairing itself. Charged with 35 different actives – the key allies are 11 antioxidants (brighten, heal, tighten and protect) and 12 soothing healers (natural moisturizing factors that intensively hydrate, strengthen the skin’s delicate barrier and repair stressed skin) that work day and night to return your skin to its healthiest state.

Immediately, it provides a dose of restorative moisture. Over time, it trains your skin to be smarter – increase in production of collagen, elastin and growth factors, increase in natural moisture retention, decrease in fine lines and volume of wrinkles (23% in 30 days), 36% reduction of non-inflammatory acne lesions (open and closed comedones) in 28 days. Thanks to its advanced delivery system made from chemically similar fatty acids that has an increased compatibility with the skin, it absorbs instantly. There is also an optimal level of caffeine which is great for de-puffing and tightening tired skin. It will help you look more rested. The wonderful thing is that this can be used on the eye area too and is especially great for a night on the town, post-facials and after a day in the sun.

Traditionally, masks are concentrated products that you wear once or twice a week for 20-30 minutes and they give your skin a boost. The 1A All-Day Mask is designed to be like a multi-vitamin pill that nourishes your skin throughout the day. The truth is, skin is skin. It has no gender. All our products were created for and tested extensively on all genders from 20s-60s (from sensitive to dry to oily to acne-prone). Allies of Skin is created for the modern multi-hyphenate. The individual who is a parent, a spouse, a sibling, a go-getter and while having to juggle all of that; wants to look and feel good too. We want to help you check off that box so you can focus on living your dreams. This is why we created our leave-on masks. Everyone should be able to feel great in their own skin and now you can minus any hassle. Our 1A masks work throughout the day/night to repair and nourish your skin. Leave taking care of your skin to us and go live.

So far the reviews have been positively glowing (in the literal sense too):
