When Glamglow is just too expensive for your budget there’s always Memebox I Dew Care Disco Kitten Mask. $23 bucks gets you a peel off mask that promises to reveal a brighter, clearer complexion but let’s be honest, it’s the name that has you excited isn’t it?
That’s what got me! But ok, yeah, I was intrigued by formula as well plus it seemed like a cheaper way to get my Glamglow on considering their peel off masks are like one million dollars.
Here’s the scoop.
Memebox I Dew Care Disco Kitten is one of several new skincare products that the brand launched at Ulta.com. As you know Memebox is no longer selling K-Beauty Boxes or beauty products and their website is now strictly a resource for reviews. I thought it was interesting they aren’t selling their own products but those products are now available at Ulta. But hey, it’s still cool we can get them especially since their skincare offerings are pretty fabulous! I tried the Nooni Snowflake Jelly Cleansing Oil and was really impressed by it.
The mask comes in a 2.87 oz jar and will set you back $23 which isn’t too bad a price when comparing to mid-to-high end brands. It’s formulated with a host of ingridents that act to brighten up duller skin tones while firming and boosting elasticity and also nourish and hydrate. They promote it as a formula that acts to fortify skin which is ironic because it contains Polyvinyl Alcohol which isn’t exactly a great ingredient. It also contains regular alcohol which can be drying. We aren’t off to a good start here are we?
None the less I was determined to try it out because all the ravings on youTube convinced me I needed it. Apparently the Pearl Powder in the formula exfoliates skin to reveal a brighter complexion and I’m all about brighter less dull skin.
The mask is a pearl iridescent shade that supposed to turn silver as it dries down. It actually becomes a metallic white-ish shimmering shade as it dries down but not silver. I felt like Faye Dunaway in Mommy Dearest wearing it. NO MORE WIRE HANGERS! I did take a photo of myself in it but proceeded to chickened out last minute posting it here because I looked all kinds of scary.
There’s a I Dew Care Silicone Brush that you can purchase for $8 to apply this which I’ll review in another post but you can also apply it using your fingers should you like. The box says to apply a generous amount and wait for 20 minutes for it to dry. Try not to get too generous as the more you apply the longer it takes for the mask to dry down. The formula is quite runny and it feels cool and slightly sticky during the application. I didn’t notice any fragrance during the application or after it dried. As it dries it obviously tightens up which worried me as I feared I’d come out of the experience feeling quite dry. After about 30 minutes it set and I proceeded to peel it off. They do say to avoid your eyebrows and hairline but I got a little in my eyebrows and it wasn’t as painful a removal process as Seikisho Mask White or Shills Purifying Peel-Off Mask. I’ve tried peel off masks that can remove hair from your upper lip but this was quite gentle and didn’t hurt at all during the removal. It was also really easy to remove.
After I removed it I didn’t feel dry thankfully and my face felt quite smoother. I wouldn’t say it hydrated my skin nor did brighten up my complexion but it did seem to smooth out the skin out my face and gave it a softer feel. I’ve used it about five times since getting it and each time I had the same results. I was a little disappointed at the lack of brightening but did enjoy fact that it smoothed my skin so well.
The real question here would be, would I buy it again?
I’m a little iffy on the alcohol! Too bad it’s so high up in the ingredient list! It’s something to consider before a purchase. I also didn’t feel the end results were all that visible or noticeable. Sure, I experienced a bit of smoother skin but not a lot else.
Anyone try this mask?
