When it comes to skincare, one of my favorite brands is Dr. Jart+. I'm already a huge fan of their Ceramidin and Cicapair lines, so when they sent along their brand new Shake & Shot Rubber Masks I was so excited to try them. I had previously tried another brand's version of these DIY rubber masks with disastrously messy results, so I kept my fingers crossed that these would be better.
The Dr. Jart+ Rubber Masks are a two-part system that you mix together to create one of four rubber modeling masks. The four masks are Brightening, Soothing, Hydrating, and Firming. Each cup contains the same "base" pouch with a gel-like liquid inside, and a pack of a more watery fluid contains the brightening/hydrating/etc ingredients. The idea is that you pour both packs into the cup, put the lid on and cover the hole on top, and shake until mixed. This makes it super easy and cuts down on the mess. Once mixed, you simply apply it in a thick layer on your face with the provided spatula (the "straw" in the packaging has a wide, flat base inside the cup).
I love the bright colors and practicality of the packaging, although I'm not a huge fan of the baby-face lids. But, it's the same image as on their other rubber masks, so it makes sense! It's not like it's going to stop me from using the product.
Once the two parts are mixed together, the mask takes on a thick consistency, almost like cake frosting. It's super easy to spread onto the skin and immediately starts to dry. I like this, as it cuts down on dripping. The mess I mentioned with another brand was that it was too thin and just kept dripping off my face, and when I decided to just lay down to let it dry, it started dripping into my nose. So it wasn't pleasant. The Dr. Jart+ however, were thick and quick-drying enough to avoid this. I did have to smooth out a few drips that were forming on my chin for the first couple minutes, but I was able to still be upright and do other tasks for the 15-20 minutes it took to dry.
So far, I've only used the Hydro one, and I was so impressed that I can't wait to try the other three. The Hydro mask is meant to moisturize and nourish the skin. It uses Vitamin B5 and amino acids to strengthen the skin's barrier and replenish the skin. This immediately felt so cooling and comforting on my skin. It was easy and incredibly satisfying to peel off, and it came off in about four pieces. It left my face dry to the touch, rather than sticky like some sheet masks would, but it still felt very hydrated and plump. It also left my skin amazingly smooth - it would be a great one to use before a special event to make makeup apply more smoothly.
The Soothing Mask contains Vitamin K3 and a soothing botanical complex to calm sensitive skin. I've been meaning to use this one after a workout, when my skin usually becomes a little flushed and irritated.
The Brightening Mask contains Vitamin C as well as sea buckthorn fruit extract to revitalize the skin and even tone. My skin usually responds really well to Vitamin C products as well as products with sea buckthorn oil, so I have high hopes!
The Firming Mask contains Vitamin A and their OxyForce Cellular Active to boost collagen production and increase skin elasticity and firmness. I'm really intrigued about this having Vitamin A, so I can't wait to see what results this one gives me, too.
Have you tried these Dr. Jart+ Shake & Shot Masks yet? Which one would you try first?
