It’s back! There was so much demand for Rescue Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask that CosMedix is launching it again.
Why is Rescue such a fan favorite? The reasons are clear: it delivers lasting hydration to the skin to protect its moisture barrier, it alleviates dry, flaky skin, and it reduces redness and irritation. More than likely, it’s a combination of all three. Rescue doubles as a healing balm and as an overnight mask to deliver intense hydration where you need it most. Rescue comes with another great product, Relief, a soothing peptide gel that protects against future damage.
Restore Nourishing Hydration
Rescue is a soothing moisturiser formulated to heal skin and restore hydration to your complexion. If your skin is dry and chapped from the harsh effects of winter weather, Rescue delivers moisture deep to your skin. Rescue soothes sensitive skin and alleviates redness. The non-greasy formula smells fresh and leaves your skin healthy and rejuvenated.
What’s the difference between Rescue and Rescue+?
Although both Rescue and Rescue+ provide an intense dose of hydration to your skin, they’re formulated differently. Rescue is a great daily moisturiser that is formulated with:
- Shea butter for nutrient-dense hydration
- D-Panthenol to balance your skin’s natural moisture
- Cherry extracts that are full of antioxidants and Vitamin C to heal and soothe dry skin
- Willowherb extract to soothe sensitive skin and reduce redness
Rescue+ offers potent hydration and healing, making it ideal for post-treatment or very dry skin. It’s formulated with:
- Sodium Cocoyl Alaninate to help reverse the effects of ageing and protect skin from further damage
- Shea butter and Argan oil to hydrate and deliver antioxidants to the skin
- Resveratrol to protect the skin from free radicals
How to use Rescue Balm & Mask
Rescue can be used as part of your morning skincare routine or at night before bed. If your skin is very dry or just needs that extra dose of hydration, you can use it both day and night or leave it on as a mask overnight to optimise its moisturising benefits.
Rescue as part of your daytime skin routine
First, cleanse your skin with a lightweight cleanser, such as Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser, to remove dirt, oil, and other skin debris. Cleansing clears the pores and allows the skin to easily absorb Rescue’s powerful ingredients.
Next, use a toner, such as Benefit Balance Antioxidant Toner or Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep to soothe and balance your skin. Toner also removes debris and build-up from the pores and prepares the skin to receive nourishing hydration.
Once your skin is cleansed and toned, apply a pea-sized amount of Rescue Balm to your face, focusing on the areas that need hydration the most. Your face will feel soft and smooth.
Rescue as part of your nighttime skin routine
If you plan to use Rescue at night, follow the same process as above to cleanse and tone your skin and remove all the dirt and debris that built up during the day. Then, apply a pea-sized amount of Rescue to your face, leaving it on your face and lips for a few minutes. You can also leave it on overnight for a surge of hydration. Follow up with Relief gel to protect your skin from further damage.
