Battle of the Bubbles Week 1

This week I selected Dr. Jart+ Porecting Solution Bubbling Charcoal Sheet Mask. I read some pretty good reviews about this mask and while it’s a little pricey, I decided to give it a try for the first week. You can purchase this at Sephora for $9. Don’t forget to follow the steps at the end of this post for a chance to win an at-home facial gift bag which is getting fuller by the day!

The basics:

  • Ease of use: Easy
  • Price: High
  • Packaging: Simple
  • Smell: Medium
  • Reactions: Mild

Breakdown:

This was very easy to use. Simply wash and tone your face then put the mask on. The recommendation is 10-20 minutes so I did 15. The smell was medicinal, which I’m not a fan of and, because I’m a hot mess, I inhaled some product up my nose and it caused me to sneeze repeatedly. It took about 5 minutes before I felt the familiar “bubble tingle” that I love however, it was only a mild tingle. Where GlamGlow’s mask makes my face feel like it’s in a bubbling tingle factory, Dr.Jart+ was very subtle. This sensation came and went during the last 10 minutes. Upon visual inspection at removal there were absolutely no bubbles visible (Glamglow’s turn the black mask white). Per the directions I massaged the remaining residue from the mask into my skin and went about my business. My skin felt slightly sticky for 2 hours after the mask and was extremely shiny. So shiny by husband asked me what I had on my face. While Glamglow’s makes my skin feel super soft and clean after use, Dr.Jart+ made me want to wash my face to remove the extra product (I didn’t). Dr. Jart+ had some pretty significant advantages though. It caused no breakouts (huge points) and while my face looked shiny and felt sticky after use, the next morning it was GLOWING! My complexion was clean and soft and there was no redness or stickiness. I was impressed.

Bottom line, I would rate this product 4.5 out of 5 stars. I took points off for the smell, lack of oxygenating bubble tingle (I want to feel like I’m getting a spa treatment during my weekly facial because it enhances my experience), and stickiness. It got huge points for not causing me to breakout, not drying out my skin, not making my skin oily, and the visible results the next morning. So while it’s not an in-your-face immediate result it’s definitely worth the results the following day. I would purchase this product again and I’m actually going to check out a few more of their products, particularly their DerMask Micro Jet Clearing Solution, Focuspot Blemish Micro Tip Patch, and numerous items in the Cicapair Line.

This weeks winner: GlamGlow….but it was very close!
