Happy Valentine’s day everyone! Today I’m going to talk a little bit about the new Terra! The 2022 cerulean blue Terra contains a Tightening Plasma Mask which is inspired by the power of kinesiology sports tape in relieving pain & inflammation in muscles. The mask is supposed to reduce puffiness and redness; and create a slight contouring effect.

Well the kinesiology sports tape works by generating a lifting motion on the skin, the lifting action creates a space between the top layer of the skin & underlying tissues. This reduces pressure on pain receptors within the skin, and allows fluids to move into the lymphatic vessels more easily.
Terra Fluida works very similar to these tapes, it contains Albumin and when you apply a layer of this mask to the skin in just a few minutes the mask generates an intense physical tightening of the skin. This physical force creates negative pressure and elevates the space under skin and soft tissue, so that the circulation of blood and lymph fluid can be facilitated.
Why lymphatic drainage is important? Because poor circulation contributes to a puffy appearance, redness, visible capillaries and dull complexions and lymphatic system is responsible for removing excess fluids & cellular debris from the blood stream. Terra Fluida mask also contains some ingredients with high anti-inflammatory & microcirculation-stimulating abilities, which result in more redefined jawline and facial oval; and less puffiness & redness.
I’ve been using this wash-off mask twice a week since Christmas, preferably in the morning. It smells Ayuna, has a gely-bouncy texture & spreads easily. It feels cooling at first, after a while it starts drying down & transforms into a tensor film which feels very tightening, you can not move your face. Since this is a pricey mask, I tend to use a thin layer; however, the effect is very different if you apply a generous layer. It takes a few minutes to wash it off completely and it leaves the skin quite soft and firm! The firming-contouring effect is most visible on my cheekbones and lasts for a few hours.
In my opinion this mask does something similar to what facial massage or facial yoga does; increasing blood circulation in the face to give you a healthy, slightly contoured and glowy face….and yes, the rosy cheeks and instant lifting effect is temporarily and I suggest that you use this mask before special occasions. I do not know if there will be any permanent improvements in the long run; will keep you updated when the 100ml jar is empty!
