Episode 02: Mask Force, The Nannette de Gaspé Story with Nannette de Gaspé Beaubien
April 11, 2017
In our second episode, we speak to Canadian banker-turned-beautypeneur Nannette de Gaspé Beaubien, founder of Nannette de Gaspé dry masks. Find out why her breakthrough, Youth Revealed dry masks for face and body took home the Best Indie Beauty Brand Award at the 2017 Beauty Industry Awards; whether the new Uplift Revealed plumping dry masks for boobs and butt really work; and discover why Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Magic Dry Sheet Mask, made by the very same Quebec-based biotech company, is just the start of an industry-wide trend.
Jill and Carlene share their thoughts on trying the dry masks themselves as they chat with Nannette de Gaspé on everything from her most embarrassing beauty moment of all time to getting the exclusive scoop on what the founder has up her sleeve next (you’re not going to want to miss this!) Plus, could this patented, biomimetic vector technology, be the answer to needle-free Botox, for real? The answer, in this episode.
But first… just what are dry masks anyway? They’re fabrics that you wear on your face like sheet masks, but because they’re waterless, goop-free and therefore non-sticky, they have little slits that you use to tuck them over your ears so that they stay in place. 94% all-natural ingredients such as Shea butter, camellia sinensis (green tea) seed oil and peptides—in comparison, Tilbury’s are her own proprietary blend—are infused into the “techstile”, and become activated by the warmth of your skin with gentle massaging (click here to see how to tap like a pro). Like sheet masks, you keep them on for about 15 minutes.
And finally, B-side alert!! We asked founder Nannette de Gaspé to spill her bag post-interview to find out which beauty products (besides her beloved dry mask) she can’t live without, and what we found was perhaps unsurprisingly high-tech and rather luxe (clockwise from top left): Smashbox O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss; M.A.C Powder Blush; M.A.C Paints Eye Shadow; Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Lip Stain; Guerlain Terracotta Original Bronzing Powder; M.A.C Patentpolish Lip Pencil; Nannette de Gaspé Youth Revealed Restorative Techstile Masque.
