Oprah Magazine LOVES 3LAB Perfect Mask

Here's what Oprah Magazine says about 3LAB Perfect Mask:

"The Problem:
Uneven skin tone, sagging

The Cause:
Exposuer to sun or pollution and loss of collagen and elastin

The Remedy:
3LAB Perfect Mask has proven, effective antioxidants such as green tea and ginkgo biloba, and anti-irritants including licorice root extract. It also contains several cutting-edge ingredients that, when combined with a good daily antiaging skincare regimen, may help treat ruddy tones and fine lines: Nano-Claire GY, the first bioengineered growth-hormone-like material that speeds up cellular turnover; Matriyl, a peptide that contributes to collagen synthesis; and SymGlucan, a moisturizing oat extract that promotes scar healing and wrinkle reduction."

Mischo Beauty Chats it up with 3LAB Co-Founder Erica Chung

"I had the opportunity to take a tour of 3LAB last September during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and of course the chemist in me loved it! Well today I'm excited to present to you an interview with 3LAB's co-founder Erica Chung. Enjoy!...

What makes 3LAB products different from other skincare brands currently on the market?
We have a state of the art R&D and manufacturing facility on the premises so we're constantly working together with the scientists and being introduced to newest ingredients as they become available in the market.We are very conservative with our money except when it comes to investing into the highest qualities of ingredients for the products. We use the newest and most efficacious ingredients and we put the highest quantities into our products so they work on skin immediately.Our goal is to create the perfect skincare products that will work for the people and we'd rather put our investment into jars than advertising...

What are your best tips for transitioning one's skincare regimen into the spring/summer months?
Protect your skin using sunscreen that defends against both UVA/UVB rays. Also, use anti-aging products to help delay the process of skin aging even if you don't have deep wrinkles to prevent them from showing up too soon.Use 3LAB Perfect Mask 1-2 times a week to speed up circulation (it makes my skin look so radiant) and treat dehydrated skin from the heat and cold during the winter...

What's your top beauty secret?
I concentrate on the products targeting the skin's clarity and pigmentation because wrinkles are not the only sign of the skin's age- for many people, uneven complexion of the skin is. Clear and even skin tone is the key sign of youthful and healthy skin...

What's your favorite 3LAB product and why?
Multi-functioning Hydra Day with Water Based SPF 20 cream helps to show the perfect color of the makeup I put on each morning and stays that way without oxidizing or giving off too much shine. The formula is oil-free, yet hydrates the skin and is non-clogging to the pores. This cream is perfect for all skin types.Super "h" Serum (launching exclusively at Barneys New York stores this May) is the reason for the complements I'm getting from people these days! They say that I look 20 years younger than my actual age of 52, and I love it! It gives my skin the radiance, firmness and clarity I've never had in my youth!
Thank you, Erica!"

No, no, thank YOU!!!
