Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.
I do love me some sleeping masks. They protect and nurture the skin during the night, and that is especially important in Korea during the winter, since the weather is cold and extremely dry. However, after getting used to them in the winter… I didn’t want to drop them in the summer! So I was really happy when I tried the Mamonde Calendula Sleeping Mask that is ideal for my skin during the summer. This mask, however, not only did I get to try it during the summer and during “this weather” (almost like Autumn), but also it’s a denser mask which also hydrates! So, after reading all the specs of this mask, can this be my year-round mask?

Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask Review:
Dr Jart products always have a nice design. It’s not minimal, but it’s pretty and full of small details. Here, in the whole Water Fuse Hydro collection, the top part of the paper box has a small embossed detail around the brand name.
Not to mention the bottle is of a nice blue, matte, and plastic (I always recycle so if it doesn’t affect the product I prefer plastic over glass because I’m clumsy).
The next detail is just a cute reminder for us to read the instructions before use. I already read them and threw them away, and forgot to take a picture of them! But it isn’t much, it’s the information I wrote here (claims, ingredients, how to use) plus the introduction for the line, which you can also read on their website. Still, they had it, which is to say more than some other brands that sometimes don’t even have a How To Use section!
Other than those two details, there is nothing to the box. It’s just a box with a box inside, like many others, although I don’t see the need for the inner box since the bottle is made out of plastic. I mean, we don’t all have to be environmentalists, but at least save money where you can? I don’t know, just saying.
The mask, unusual according to my previous experiences of pots and tubes, comes in a pump type of bottle. You press the circle on top and it exits through the small hole in the front. This is both very practical and very clean! I once dropped my Laneige sleeping mask (pot) and ended up wasting a lot of product. With this one, even with the drops, the only waste was when I forgot to remove my glasses before applying…
Now the product review.
As you can see, it comes in a balm type (like the ones our grandmas used when we were sick – or maybe your great grandmas already), and it spreads wonderfully. In my case I usually use one pump for the whole face, or when my face needs extra love I use two pumps.
Because this balm really absorbs into the skin and ends up acting (sebum and dryness wise) like whatever-your-skin-care-is, just adding extra love on the skin.
The scent to me is weird in the sense that I can’t tell what it is. It smells like mint, or like a sweet xylitol gum. It doesn’t burn like a toothpaste, neither the smell nor the balm, and it didn’t react on my skin. Now, whereas my skin is sensitive (pollution, allergies, blemishes, seasonal rosacea) it isn’t an all around sensitive skin (I never had eczema), and I can’t swear that skins more sensitive than mine can use this.
Funny I should talk about sensitive skin. Half way through the usage of this product (I think on my third week, started gently on the second) I started having an allergic reaction. Small irritating red pimples, like a mosquito on a diet had bitten me.
Of course, first things first, I stopped the usage of the new products one at a time and checked for improvements! Nothing happened, and in the end the doc said it was a seasonal allergy. The point of the story is that this product didn’t cause it – and most importantly it didn’t hurt it in any way!
Now let me talk about the effects of this. So, it locks the hydration in more than it gives new hydration. It moisturizes the skin (very important to mention, since my nose is really oily) and that usually causes 1) my skin to feel sticky, 2) enlarged black pores.
BUT in this case there is no sticky feeling and no enlarged black pores, simply the normal sebum production I would have during the night. So, compared to the Mamonde Calendula mask, it’s less of a summer mask for combination-oily skins.
However, as I said there is basically a new season here now, and my skin is really adoring this mask – because of my dry parts! I haven’t woken up with stretchy skin, dry skin, itchy, or tugged skin once since I started using this mask.
Whereas in other sleeping masks I could see the results either immediately or shortly after, this mask actually took some time to get me to like it. If I’m going to be completely honest, applying a balm after my night cream still feels weird to me, but the results are here, and they are the results I never saw with other more famous masks.
I would still not use this mask in the summer, so far for my oily T this is not ideal in hot weather (it felt sort of average and a little tacky during the summer), but as soon as the summer left I started appreciating this mask.
My only concern is that some sensitive skins might react to this minty-ness. I would definitely recommend this for combination skin outside of summer, and dry skin year round. The reason why I don’t recommend it for oily skin is that even though this doesn’t add to the sebum, we don’t sleep with sebum powders so we are bound to produce some, and because of that I feel a lighter mask would still be better. For me (combination, sensitive skin) this is not a year round mask, but a 3 season mask!
