Pores… Can we all just agree that visually, pores can never be small enough? Mine aren’t horrible, but I still want them smaller. Sadly, with age and environmental factors, skin loses elasticity and pores grow only larger. And of course, the world of Korean beauty and skincare comes to the rescue.
The Dr. Jart + Dermask Ultra Jet Porecting Solution Bubbling Charcoal Sheet Mask is designed for people with all skin types who want to cleanse and unclog pores, shrink their size, and balance out the natural oils in the skin. It’s ideal for combination and oily skin types. The masks are available of eBay, Amazon and Cosmetic Love.
Activated charcoal - this is what makes the mask sheet black. Activated charcoal pulls out and absorbs impurities
Soapberry tree extract - the “bubbles” part that clears the skin
Surface pore care complex - oil control
Deep pore care complex - reduces pore size
The mask contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
Right after applying:
How to use:
Cleanse and tone your face
Discard the mask liner (the thinner of two sheets) and apply the mask
Massage the mask a bit - this is a tip from me, but simply running your fingers over your face once the mask is on really activates the bubbling effect!
Relax for 10-20 minutes (take scary selfies for Instagram!)
Remove the mask, pat in the remaining serum. Do not rinse off.
Note - I rinse off. It’s probably some kind of a mental block, but why would I leave a “cleansing” mask on? It feels sticky to me after removal. I also have a friend who doesn’t rinse off and is happy with the results, so experiment and see what works best for you!
A few minutes after application:
For years, I’ve read articles that said that pore size cannot be reduced. Once they are enlarged and stretched, that’s it. The best we could hope for was a temporary tightening effect. And yet Korean beauty world keeps uprooting these “fundamental truths” and pushing the limits of what skincare can achieve. This mask absolutely does reduce pore size. Even when I go a few weeks between applications, my pores are still looking smaller than they did last year. So it does work. Of course, once you clean and shrink pores, be sure to keep them nice and clear by removing dirt and makeup daily. I use a cleansing oil and foaming cleanser all the time, and peeling gel or peeling pads a couple of times a week. Maintenance is key.
I have deep running love for the Dr. Jart+ brand. Yes, their products are a bit pricier than some other k beauty alternatives, but they are worth every penny. The effects are stunning, every time. These charcoal bubble masks are no exception. The skin feels smooth and so clean right away, but without dryness or tightness. My pores become nearly invisible. To me, these masks should be part of just about everyone’s routine on a regular basis. If you are curious about other Dr. Jart+ products, check out these reviews.
