Dr.Jart+ is a Korean dermatological cosmetics brand with scientifically tested products. Vital Hydra Solution and Soothing Hydra Solution are made with fine cellulose fibers to help active ingredients penetrate deeply for ultimate hydration. Personally, it’s one of my favorite facial masks. I use them twice a week and they are a perfect moisture-boost after my face has suffered from sunlight and make-up. Dr. Jart Mask provides daily nourishment for healthy skin with superb hydrating ingredients.

Moreover, it’s extremely easy and quick to use for your refreshed skin. First, wash then dry your face. Secondly, open the mask pack and remove the film from the mask. Lastly, put it on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes, then remove it. You can instantly see your skin noticeably softer and feel deeply moisturized. Indulge your dry skin in the ultimate hydration therapy with Dr. Jart Mask, the Dermask Water Jet Solutions.

Some of Dr. Jart’s rubber masks prices are more expensive than the other Korean face masks but with acceptably good reasons. Dr. Jart Rubber Mask is famous for its unique texture and active ingredients. And if you have ever had a personal Korean skincare service, you would know that the Dr. Jart Rubber Mask is nearly similar to having treatment by a professional beauty therapist from a skincare shop. Besides, there are four variations you can choose from depending on how you want your skin such as hydration, pore-less, and brightening. Simply follow just two steps. First, nourish your skin with the ampule pack. Then, place the rubber mask on your face. Dr. Jart Rubber Mask is unique in that it prevents active ingredients from evaporating away and soothes your skin.

Another best seller item in Innisfree is the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. For fading or reduction of pore size, the key is clearing them of dirt and skin oils.
