I have been lucky enough to be treated to these two “rubber” face masks that are currently trending in Korea, by the lovely people at Buttermilk Skincare. I had never heard of rubber face masks until I saw their Instagram account and knew this was something I had to try for myself! here is how I got on…
Unlike traditional face masks, this one comes in powder form that you have to mix with water to get the desired consistency. Everything you need comes with it; the instructions, how much water to use and the spatula to stir it all together.
It didn’t take much effort until it started looking rubbery in texture. I used the mixing spatula to apply directly to the face, it felt cooling and very pleasant. My first tip to you if you give this mask a go (and you definitely should, it was so much fun!) is to work quickly! the product is keen to dry fast so you don’t have that much play time with it.
My second tip to you, is to find somewhere comfortable to sit or lay down whilst it works its magic. The mask is quite weighty as it is designed to form a seal over your skin so the ingredients can really sink in unlike sheet masks that evaporate (I can see why this is such a trend in Korea!). I started in an upright position and could feel it slowly slipping south… it peeled off in one when I was ready to remove it and I have to say it was the most satisfying mask removal ever!
Did it do anything to my skin? yes, this was amazing. It has been a long time since I had a really good skin day and it was all down to this mask. My skin looked bright, refreshed and energised not to mention super soft to the touch thanks to the mineral rich ingredients.
Would I use it again? I will without doubt be purchasing this mask (or five), not for a weekly treat but for a special occasion where I want my skin to look as radiant as possible and when I have a girls night and we all put face masks on, I think I would win the mask competition! I have never had so much fun with a mask before.
