Can you own too many sleeping masks? If you said yes, YOU’RE WRONG. I have I think 5 currently, and one disposable… When Cupidrop announced this product to review I was stoked! How did they know I needed another hydrating sleeping mask?
They didn’t. I got lucky.
BRTC is a clinical oriented KBeauty brand that stands for Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetics. Their goal is to provide effective formulas based in nature. (Like a lot of brands!) They do however have two of their own patented ingredient complexes in this single product: Purple Vigor, and Blue Phyto Complex.
Notable Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane*, Niacinamide, Adenosine, Allantoin, Chamomile, Jasmine Water
The Jasmine Waterful sleeping mask is described as dual function to assist with not only whitening (reducing dark spots), but anti-wrinkle as well. It has an extremely light Jasmine scent that I honestly, can’t really pick up unless my products have no scent whatsoever. Some people are more sensitive to it than others, but I really have to strain to pick up any jasmine scent. I do wish it was in a tube or a pump to prevent ingredient degradation and maintain sanitation.
The texture is great. It’s described as ‘bursts with moist when rubbed in’ and it…. well… really does! Just like if you’ve tried Dr. Jart Water Drop moisturizer or similar, this will form lil’ water beads when you start to rub it in! Pretty novel, but it shows the formula is literally ‘bursting’ with hydration. Pretty cool stuff! It absorbs well and makes a fine last step at night (or even as a lightweight hydrating/priming moisturizer in the morning!)
I am always down for an extra step in my mask. Especially with this one from Meg. I received this being apart of the second generation of Cupidrop’s Beautiful Pioneer Program in return for my honest opinion. (They also sent me some CosRx holiday stickers that I love too much to put on anything yet) Meg. Cosmetics is not a well known brand at all. Actually I had to do some digging myself to pull up some background on the brand.
Meg. Cosmetics is a ‘k-beauty’ New York based company. What I get from that is Americans using korean formulations and manufacturing (the mask is made in Korea). The name Meg was chosen because of it being a common american name. They also use the same high end nail formulation that brands like Chanel and Dior use.
This mask set is really awesome though. For $6USD you get a AHA peeling swab, or this jumbo Q-Tip soaked in Lactic Acid, a more gentle exfoliating acid, as well as BHA (pore care), Chamomile and Centella (soothing). You swab this over your face removing any unwanted dead skin buildup, debris, dirt, etc. & pave way for a perfect masking session; maximizing absorption. There’s a little bit of sting but no more than any other AHA swab i’ve tried. It came pretty saturated as well, but with no excess essence for ‘double dipping’
The jelly mask itself is where the magic is. Containing A.M.F or Artificial Moisturizing Factors (a patented moisturizing factor said to be superior to Natural factors N.M.Fs) this helps skin retain moisture for up to a whopping 120hrs. Also you’ll find natural extracts such as jasmine for soothing and damask rose for soothing and hydrating. It has a soft fragrance accompanied but a subtle metallic scent? Maybe it was the packing, who knows. My favorite part of this mask is the adhesion! It wasn’t a problem for my facial hair and I felt like the essence absorbed better than many sheet masks i’ve used.
Overall I give this sheet mask a 9/10 I just wish I could keep this on hand, but at $6 it’s not a mask I would do frequently.
& Thanks again to Cupidrop for the chance to share this mask!
