This is definitely not the first mask with this concept that I’ve tried in the past. There are several masks from Dr. Jart that work in a same way.
This MISSHA modeling mask comes in 2. parts: It has the active gel and a sachet that contains rice powder together with the other ingredients which make gel harden on your face.
The essence gel comes in a plastic capsule and contains 50 ml of the product which is a lot. It is enough to cover the entire face and what I found out later, was plenty to cover the neck area as well. I mixed the powder into the gel and stirred it well to make it one uniform mass. Since I didn’t have any spatula I just used plastic baby food spoon and it did work great for both mixing and application parts. Gel has a slight fragrance to it that disappears once the mask is applied onto the face.
The mixed goo is very runny in the beginning and tends to slide off the face. After application it looked like alien sneezed at me. I had to lay down for the hardening part that took about 20 minutes. If I would be standing up this entire time I would mask my decolleté as well.
After 20 minutes the mask was solidified feeling moist to the touch. It is hard to describe but it felt like a silicone layer that was giving off moisture if I pushed in it with my fingers. The mask came off in one piece and I was left with a freaky transparent sheet in my hands. It was fun to scare my husband with it.
My skin was left hydrated for an entire day. In terms of brightening it did even out my skin tone and reduced my pigmentation spots. There was no tacky or sticky feeling left on my skin after I removed the mask. Overall it is a very fun product to try out with your friends. The down side for me is that took about half an hour of my time. I would not be able to play with these types of masks on a daily basis.
