My quarter life crisis is manifesting as a compulsion to try the most outrageous skincare products the internet shows me. So, naturally, I grabbed this from T.J. Maxx yesterday.
I got it because it was a powder, and the instructions kept mentioning putting “the rubber” on your face. It confused me…so it must work.
This is a good time to mention that I have googled, rubber/modelling masks are, in fact, a thing. I can’t find this particular mask anywhere, though. It’s not on the Jean Pierre website. There’s another label floating around in Korean with Urban DollKiss as the company..so I guess you can buy it there?
Whatever, let’s use it. I ignored the instructions and the nice measuring cup and mixed up half the powder with enough water to make it a gloopy paste.
Did you ever cover your face in Gak as a kid? That’s exactly what this feels like. You can see some places where I spread it on pretty thin and it completely dried. Those places didn’t peel up.
We all make mistakes. I’m standing by splitting it in half, though. You’re going to have to wash your face a little at the end either way.
Peeling satisfaction: 0/10. It peels off in a million pieces and doesn’t rip out your sebaceous filaments and show them to you. That’s why we peel things, right?
Post-mask skinfeel (This is a term now): 5/10. I was soft, but still had visible dry patches.
Overall: 4/10. I didn’t notice any immediate benefits (like smaller pores or angelic choirs when I looked in the mirror). It seemed like a less effective, messier sheet mask. I bumped up the score for smelling good and not irritating my skin.
