Presenting the ultimate mask for a glowing complexion and almost nonexistent pores.

There are few masks that our artist community deems “one of the best masks I have ever used.” Enter: 111 Skin CO2 Crystallising Energy Mask, which is bound to make you fall in love with your face.

This formula harnesses state-of-the-art Japanese technology. Powered by a ceramide complex, vitamin E, chlorella vulgaris, and pueraria thunbergiana root, the mask hydrates, nourishes, soothes, and brightens. The regimen is simple: mix the activating gel solution and treatment mask to create carbonic acid and drive CO2 into skin, causing it to react by producing an influx of oxygen to boost ATP (the main energy source for the majority of cellular and muscular functions) production. Sounds scientific, but this is a good thing. After about 10 minutes the formula will begin to crystallize and create a barrier, which acts as an environmental seal for the product to work underneath and, in turn, enhance collagen and elastin. In short: this powerful energizing treatment will revive, illuminate, and tighten your complexion instantly.



“I’m obsessed with this mask. It left my skin glowing and tightened my pores. My skin looked refreshed and plump after only one use.” —Sabrina Bedrani, makeup artist

“This mask was insanely amazing. My skin felt plump and firm. I can’t say enough about how radiant it left my skin looking! This is one of the best masks I've ever used.” —Matthew VanLeeuwen, makeup artist

“Wow! What a mask! It’s a 40-minute process, and you need the time to do it, but it’s worth every minute. The results are unbelievable! It cleansed and minimized my pores, tightened and rejuvenated my complexion, and made it look even, radiant, supple, and hydrated.” —Carola Gonzalez, makeup artist

“This is a mask you will make time for. My skin was noticeably brighter, smoother, and hydrated. The hydration and glow lasted for days.” —Jenna Kristina, makeup artist


Mix the treatment mask and activating gel for 2 minutes. Apply a thick layer to clean, dry skin and leave it on for 40 minutes. Once the mask is completely dry and has crystallized, wash it off with the face towel provided.
