Beauty Mask Review — Dr.Jart+ Dermask Ultra Jet Peeling Solution Mask

Dr.Jart+_s Dermask Ultrajet Peeling Solution Mask

I tried an new face mask, which is so exciting.  It made me think, maybe I should start a new series where I review face masks.  I think it could be fun!

This is the newest addition to Dr.Jart+’s famed Dermask Collection, the Ultrajet Peeling Solution Mask ($9 USD). Here is the info on it:

This 2-step sheet mask is formulated with a rich bubbling formula, composed of carbonic acid powder infused with carbon dioxide, to help deeply penetrate and clear out pores. It also uses a blend of sugar scrub and fruit acids, including papaya enzymes help to gently resurface skin and even out the complexion, leaving it soft and balanced. The perfect repair mask after a summer of sun!

This was interesting and I’m still trying to figure it out.  I applied the scrub first.  My face was dry, but I am wondering if it should have been damp. I rubbed it in a bit and applied the sheet mask. I left it on for 5 minutes (the instruction say 3-5 minutes).  It didn’t bubble up at all.  After 5 minutes, I removed the mask and rinsed off the scrub. My skin looked good afterwards.  The mask didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and my skin looked pretty smooth. My pores did look a little less noticeable, too.

This was a quick and easy mask.  It did smooth out my skin. I’d like to try more Dr. Jart+ masks.

Have you tried this or any Dr. Jart+ masks?
