Review: Common Labs Ggultamin C Real Jet Mask


I have been seeing this mask flowing around on social media so I knew I had to get a hand on one. I bought all three flavours from Althea Korea last month, with some given to my mom. The one I am using today is the Vitamin C Ggultamin C Real Jet Mask. I saw a lot of dark spots emerging around the my right cheek so I wanted to get a quick fix which was why I chose the vitamin C flavour.





The mask comes in two steps: step 1 for gentle exfoliating and step 2 for skin brightening sheet mask.


To use, you first take out the exfoliating pad. Insert your fingers into the pocket of the pad, then gently swipe across your face for non-abrasive exfoliation. I can see some brownish (presumably the dead skin cells) left on the pad after using. How gross! I then use it on the folded skin around my underarm, knee, and elbow.


I subsequently follow it up with the sheet mask. The sheet mask is made of cupro fiber that can hold up many times essence than of normal cotton sheet. The essence is not sticky or greasy, but it will leave a little bit of sticky residue when you take the mask off. It has a medicinal scent to it that is neither floral or perfumy. Just some normal cosmetic sheet mask scent.

INGREDIENTS

Step 1


Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Glycerin Acid, Butylene Glycol, Honey Extract(1,000ppm), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate(10ppm), Glyceryl Caprylate, Salicylic Acid, 1,2-Hexanediol, Xanthan Gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

Step 2


Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Honey Extract(1,000ppm), Propolis Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate(10ppm), Glyceryl Caprylate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Polyacrylic Acid, Cellulose Gum, 1,2-Hexanediol, Dimethicone, Potassium Hydroxide, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

INGREDIENTS ANALYSIS

Key ingredients include niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, 1,000ppm honey extract, propolis extract, peony root extract, centella asiatica, chamomile flower extract, 10ppm vitamin C (in the form of magnesium ascrobyl phosphate), and so on. The ingredients definitely look delicious for bees lovers or those who want some vitamin C benefits with a lot of moisturizing and nourishing "side-dishes". The propolis here helps to calm acne-prone and flaky skin as well as provides nutrients for inflamed and sensitive skin. Honey is a humectant that is known for its skin nourishing and anti-oxidizing benefits. Niacinamide, vitamin C, and peony root extract are commonly used in skincare products to reduce melanin synthesis, even up your skin complexion and break down dark spots. This seems like a perfect combination for clearer and brighter skin.

PERFORMANCE


Honestly, I did not see a lot of improvements from using this mask, neither do my mom. We both feel that it is kinda "meh" in term of skin brightening properties. It is not very skin quenching or moisturizing either. I still woke up with a slightly dull skin the next day, and there isn't any instantaneous skin brightening result the moment I took it off. A bit disappointed given the ingredients it uses hence I don't think I will repurchase.

CONCLUSION


I still have two other flavours to go - the vitamin E and B so I will give it more try to make further judgement. So far I am not impressed by the performance and application of this mask. It is not cheap either at RM 9 each (although to be fair it does come with an extra exfoliating step) so I don't think I will repurchase in the future.
