These Shake & Shot Rubber Masks are the latest addition to Dr Jart’s range of skincare products. They make up a set of fun, DIY rubbery modeling masks that infuse skin with potent actives to smooth for a healthy, dewy-looking complexion. Previously, Dr Jart came up with a type of non-modeling rubber mask which involved placing a literal rubber sheet over the essence. I did not like the Dr Jart Bright Lover Rubber Mask at all, hopefully this works better. Plus, the creepy-cute packaging made me chuckle!

These new Shake & Shot Masks comes in 4 different variants, each targeting a specific skin need:

  • Hydro Shot: Moisturizes and revitalizes the complexion. The Hydro Mask ampoule contains a cocktail of Vitamin B5 (panthenol) and Expert Moist Complex, rich in amino acids, to help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
  • Soothing Shot: Calms and repairs the complexion. The Soothing Mask ampoule contains Vitamin K3 (menadione) and a soothing botanical complex to calm irritated skin.
  • Luminous Shot: Brightens dull skin. The Brightening Mask ampoule contains Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and sea buckthorn fruit extract, rich in vitamins, to even out skin tone, brighten darkness and revitalize skin.
  • Elastic Shot: Improves skin elasticity and firmness. The Firming Mask ampoule contains Vitamin A (retinol) and OxyForce™ Cellular Active to help boost collagen synthesis and enhance elasticity and firmness of sagging skin.

Background:

Dr.Jart uses the same “rubber mask” technique found in high-end Korean spas to achieve equivalent high-performance results—without the fuss of mixing a traditional modeling pack. The innovative cream-to-sheet formula penetrates skin more deeply than a sheet mask to deliver high-potency active ingredients. Each freshly-made mask penetrates skin surface to deliver the benefits your skin needs most quickly and effectively.

Before masking

My skin is feeling pretty normal today. It’s showing some redness which is happens pretty commonly. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Step 1 content

The first packet had a yogurt-like consistency. It was semi-opaque and had a faint floral scent.

Step 2: Hydro Liquid Ampoule

Unmixed mixture

The second packet contained a blue liquid and wasn’t giving off any scent. Both contents went into the cup without hassle or mess. So far so good.

With my index finger on the “mouth” of the creepy looking lid, I shook the bottle 3 times. At first, I could hear sloshing noises. But there wasn’t any sound coming from the 4th shake. I’m guessing the contents have already been mixed.

Mixture

This was what I was presented with upon opening the lid. The mixture looked white with the consistency of cottage cheese. It wasn’t as runny as I thought it would be. I was a little concerned that the mixture wasn’t smooth, thinking that those blobs meant the mixture was not evenly mixed. So I replaced the lid and gave it a few more shakes just to be sure. It still looked the same so I decided to leave it as that.

During masking

Application was easy peasy with the paddle-like spatula. It was wide enough to evenly spread a scoop of mixture across a large surface of my face. There was nice cooling sensation when the product touched my skin. As I reached in for another scoop of product, I realized a problem. The container had a narrow and tall shape, which made reaching in and scooping product out with an even taller spatula a little challenging. I had to grip on the the thin handle with only 2 fingers and try to scoop the mixture out from the base. It did not work when I tilted the cup sideways because the mixture was super viscous and seemed to harden really quickly. That was the only downer thus far.

Unlike most modeling masks, this did not drip down quickly, making me look like a swamp monster. Again, the mixture seemed to set very quickly, allowing for easier application without the need to lay down at all. On the other hand, I wasn’t able to wear this for an hour like I do with all other modeling masks. I could feel the lack of moisture by the 30 min mark.

I don’t recommend leaving this on for 30 mins. I should’ve stuck by the instructions and remove it after 15-20 mins. The mould felt drier than normal and proved a little challenging to remove, for the edges with lesser product were completely dried out and stuck to my skin.

After masking

There wasn’t any essence left on my skin. But my skin felt moderately hydrated and moisturized, not completely dry. There was also a slight radiance and a whole lot of redness reduction. Skin texture also looked smoother in the form of blurred out pores and plumped up fine lines. Finish looked silky and felt tacky.

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

I did follow up with a cream moisturizer as the hydration and moisturization wasn’t enough for my skin. This is a great modeling mask for oily to combo skin. Dry skin might find it insufficient. I’ve enjoying this modeling mask particularly the part where I shook the container to mix the contents. However, if improvements could be made to the shape of the container, I would enjoy it more. Still an amazing modeling mask but my favorite is still 23 Years Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask.
