#smotd: Dr Jart+ Bright Lover Rubber Mask, courtesy of @shophush_ 😶
This is another #skintertainment mask with a packaging and concept that got me really intrigued. So when @shophush_ offered me free credits to get stuff from their site, naturally I picked this (and some other stuff lol)! The whole shopping experience was a breeze by the way. Use my non-affiliate code 'maskepedia' to save yourself 10%. When I showed this packaging to my mom, to my horror, she said it looks cute. Can someone please let her know it's the opposite? I find it really creepy. 😶
This is a 2-step mask that comes with a capsule containing serum, and a rubber mask. The logic behind this is to prevent active ingredients from evaporating and enhance permeation at the same time. I chose to get the brightening variant because I get cheap thrills from visible post-masking effects. The serum contains a vitamin complex that's made up of grapefruit extract, tocopherol, ascorbic acid, and folic acid to brighten skin tone and improve skin texture. The rubber mask is made of brown seaweed and lightly coated in essence that contains hydrating ingredients. 😶
The serum has a very unique jello texture. When poked, it took about 10 secs to collapse back into the shape of the container. There was a perfect amount of jello for my entire pancake, I mean face. Erm..I ripped the rubber while pulling it out of the packaging. It turned out to not be as sturdy as normal rubber, it's more like a hard pudding. Fit was okay, being in 2 pieces helped with the fit, but the nose flap was suuuuuuper long, I felt like Squidward. I had this on for 45 mins, of which the first 15 gave me a stinging sensation. There was no warming sensation, unlike other foil masks that also has this "min evaporation, max permeation" concept. 😶
