RXU Lab is a cosmeceutical brand that’s only sold in Korean dermatology and plastic surgery clinics. It focuses on regeneration and recovery, especially for post-dermatological treatments. Their products contain coconut water and coconut oil as the main ingredients, and is suitable for sensitive and problematic skin. 🌴
This mask claims to soothe and moisturize skin with coconut water and coconut oil. The company sent me their ingredients lists after I requested for them. It looks pretty good although I question why ‘fragrance’ is listed in the middle even though this is a mask meant for sensitive skin. I couldn’t find the ingredients list for this so I’m going in blind. Well, partially blind, cosmeceutical products usually work well on my sensitive dermatitis-prone skin.
My skin is a little dry today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, this mask gave off a perfumey fragrance. The coconut gel mask came sandwiched between a thick fabric backing and a thick plastic backing. It was a challenge to unfold due to the thick plastic backing sticking so tightly together. However, the thick fabric backing proved itself useful by preventing the edges from curling up and sticking to itself during application. Essence was gel-like and had enough left in the packet for another masking session.
It was pretty easy to adjust the fit given how soft the gel is. It reminds me of Leaders 7 Wonders masks. Adherence was great! I had it on for 25 min, 5 mins more then the maximum recommended time. This is to avoid having to peel off a dried out gel mask.
Thankfully it was still damp when I removed it. There was almost no essence left to pat in. My skin was adequately hydrated. My skin type required a moisturizer to seal it on or it’ll get drier throughout the day. I saw the most improvement in brightening, calming, and reduction in pore size. Finish was slightly tacky and slightly dewy.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I’d pick this over a mask that solely gives intense hydration, any day.
