Environ Revival Masque or Environ Tri BioBotanical Revival Masque has been in my skincare routine since the start of this year. After using it for the first time my initial thought was that it’s like a facial in a box.
So here’s what you need to know if you’re looking for a hardworking mask that truly makes an impact on your skin and amps up your skin’s hydration.
Standout ingredients include Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) featuring:
- Mandelic Acid (generally derived from almonds).
- Asiatic Acid (from Gotu Kola aka Centella Asiatica medicinal plant).
- Lactic Acid (found in milk, yoghurt and naturally in the body).
These acids have the potential to help with acne, hydration, dullness and to exfoliate the skin, minus any gritty textures.
These acids also make the skin more sun-sensitive so daily use of sunscreen is a must.

On my dry skin, I’m able to use Environ Revival Masque up to twice per week. I always cleanse my face first then use the accompanying brush to apply it all over my face and neck, avoiding the eye contour.
And to remove, I use a soft muslin cloth dampened with tepid water, then apply a light toner and continue with my skincare routine.
It never stings or burns although if I’ve forgotten to time it, my skin tells me it’s time to remove by tingling a bit. Otherwise, it absorbs completely and has a transparent dry down.
It’s really good ahead of a big day or especially if your skin looks lacklustre, fatigued or saggy.
I’ve used it during colder months and warmer months, and in both instances, it performs well. Although sunscreen should be worn year-round, it’s essential to wear sunscreen when using this mask, especially during the warmer months.
After removal, overall my skin always looks more luminous and clearer, it feels and looks lifted and the texture looks better, like if I’ve had a professional treatment. I can also rely on this mask if I’ve had a spot or two and I need to speed up healing or fading of any shadows left by the spots.
I also use a bit for the back of my hands and because it dries clear and residue-free, you can type or do other things although I’d advise against food preparation while it’s on.
With continued use, you’ll really begin seeing lasting improvements in your skin. And while the Environ Revival Mask lacks any luxurious scents, the skin’s improved appearance is the ultimate victory.
Plus, this beats out the average sheet mask by a very long shot and adds a boost to your general skincare routine.
I purchased the Environ Revival Masque from Rescue Spa. They have a tremendous set of products and generally, their shipping time is good, so I hope this helps.
