Did you try any so-called pudding masks yet? I have a review for Care Lab Powerful Pudding Mask I discovered at Wishtrend. This mask is not like the sheet masks, which are basically cotton sheets soaked in essence, but here we have a mask consisting of two components which work their wonders as soon as they are combined.
First of all the brand Care Lab (or C Lab) is a Korean brand available at Wishtrend which started as medical cosmetic brand called “Histolab”. They are focussing on soft natural ingredients. The Care Lab Pudding Mask is available in 4 different versions, each targeting another skincare problem. The Powerful Pudding Mask has face shaping properties and claims to affect the appearance of pores. There are also pudding masks addressing dry skin, sensitive skin and for giving your skin vitality. The packaging of these masks is lovely. Each Care Lab Pudding Mask comes in a plastic bag containing the two components of the mask and a instruction paper.
The main part is the component for the pudding. It comes in a square plastic container with a lovely design. The second container is much smaller and contains the “Booster Powder”. Unfortunately, the instructions are written in Korean only, but it is illustrated nicely, so you will understand most of it without being able to read it.
In order to use the pudding mask you simply add the powder onto the pudding component and mix it with a specific brush or a clean spoon or spatula. It doesn’t come with a spatula, but Care Lab sells a special brush which costs around 2 US$.
The product description on Wishtrend is very thoroughly and you will find a translation of all the ingredients of this mask there in English. According to COSDNA the ingredients are safe (>>click here<<). It contains a couple of plant extracts, too. The main ingredients are peppermint, chestnut shell, tea tree oil and japanese cypress. Peppermint soothes sensitive skin while offering refreshment to the pores. Chestnut Shell contains Tannin component which can help to reduce the appearance of pores. Tea Tree Oil instantly tightens up enlarged pores and freshes them up. Japaness Cypress offers deep hydration with upgrading the skin elasticity.
I used the container of the jelly component to mix it with the powder, but I dicovered that the whole packaging is way too much for one usage. So if you have two clean jars you could keep the two components separately and only use the half of it. In this way one of these masks could be used two times.
The jelly component has a clear appearance and the word “pudding” describes it perfectly. The booster powder is a fine, white powder. According to the instruction you have to mix the two components for around 30 seconds. Then you can apply it on your face. Using a brush will make it easier to apply, but also here I used a spoon and my fingers and it worked quite nicely. I was first afraid that the jelly stuff might fall off my face, but I discovered that the product starts to get more solid. The consistency became comparable to the solid gel masks.
The scent of the mask is a mild peppermint scent, which is not too strong. It feels cool and refreshing on the skin, but also moist. After 20-30 minutes the mask can be removed. By know it has become solid, so you can just peel it from your skin in large patches. The skin beneath feels tightened, but hydrated. I didn’t see any effect on my pores though, although I didn’t expect anything in first place. I neither do have super huge pores, nor do I believe that the effect will be visible after one usage. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this mask. I like the refreshing feeling the pudding consistency gives the skin and I like how it turns more solid and can be peeled off at the end. The scent was nice, too. I’d definitively like to try out the other masks from Care Lab, but this time I know that one packaging can be divided for two usages. Each Care Lab Pudding Mask Bag costs 6.90 US$ at Wishtrend. They have Black Friday Sale right now (until end of November) so they are cheaper at the moment. I also made a post about the promotions they offer for November >>here<< (You can get free silk finger balls ;)). Also, keep in mind their friend-referral program: You can receive a 5 Us$ referral coupon if you use my invitation code 17939205 upon registration and you’ll receive this voucher immediately. There will be a specific field in your registration form called“friends invitation program” where you can put the code mentioned above.
