You'll need to use the included magnet to remove Dr. Brandt's Magnetight Age-Defier mask. Yes, an actual magnet will lift and pull the mask from your skin — no water necessary! The iron-rich formula aims to harness the power of attraction to purify pores and help tighten skin over time.

The collagen gel masks from South Korea cover your pout completely — be sure you're ready for a little quiet time before applying. Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid plump fine lines and help prep for perfect lipstick application.
