I was so happy when the Korean brand Dr. Jart sent me a box of products to test as I loved every product I tried from their brand especially the Ceramidin cream and their sheet masks. So I will select and talk to you about my favorites from them in the next few weeks. I started with the rubber masks because it's one of their new products, and I am a fan of sheet masks so I was curious to see the differences between the two. The packaging is also pretty intriguing and makes you wonder how the masks actually look like.
What are these masks?
The Dr. Jart Rubber masks are two-step masks: you first apply the serum on your face and use the remaining serum on your neck, then you place the mask on top and leave it for 20-40mn depending on how much effect you need. The thing that I liked the most compared to sheet masks is that you get more serum as it is thicker, a bit jelly-like which makes it to me more effective. I also love the look of the masks, shiny and sleek like vinyl and they are very comfortable as the rubber masks are derived from algae and react with the calcium to give a cool effect to the skin. When you remove the masks, you will need to pat gently your skin with your hands to help absorb the serum. I have only one cons about the product: the rubber mask are a bit fragile so you have to be careful to manipulate them: I actually broke my Firm Lover one on the chin haha! But that's about it for the negative sides and I loved the results of each mask as detailed in the rest of the article.
Clear Skin Lover
All the masks are suitable for all types of skin even sensitive and dry, but this Clear Skin formula is made to fight oiliness and blemishes and purify pores. I don't have a particularly oily skin so it's hard for me to evaluate this part, but I really saw that my pores were smaller and my skin was overall clearer. I'd say this one is the mask you want to use before an event to have the most confidence and feel like your skin is clean under your makeup. I'd wait around 30mn or more after the mask before using makeup though, so the serum is completely absorbed and doesn't give a different texture to your foundation/concealer.
This Firm Lover formula is for tightening the skin and prevent lines and wrinkles. I am on my early 20s but it's actually a good thing to start preventing loss of elasticity earlier for the maximum effects. But it's also the most hydrating of the three masks I got to try, and as I have dry skin I could really see the difference: it felt really re-plumped, not pulling anymore, and it felt soft like a baby's ass. This one was my favorite from the three of them, also because I really like the light pink color of the mask ;).
This Bright Lover formula fights dullness, uneven skin tone and texture, and even the appearance of scars. Like the two other, it felt very comfortable to wear as it's cooling and hydrating. My main concern was that I tend to have a different skin tone around the mouth and I had a bit of redness due to irritation. I felt like this brightening mask improved it a lot, and also made my skin slightly less pale somehow, looking healthier. This one was the first I tried and as I am so used to sheet masks being too big for my nose you can see I folded it at first, but in the end, positioned correctly, it was just perfect!
