Jayjun Anti-Dust Whitening Mask is a 3-step mask pack that includes a sheet mask, an ampoule, and an eye cream. It claims to brighten and purify skin affected by pollution.
These claims sound perfect for my skin. I’ve had a really fun summer and I’ve also taken up a habit of swimming on weekends. Hence, my skin is now a shade darker and I’m afraid hyperpigmentation will take up permanent residence very soon.
My skin is feeling normal to oily, sebum production wise. It’s redder than usual with a couple of tiny red bumps. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Step 1: Anti-Dust Whitening Mask The skin soothing active ingredients included in this skin-brightening sheet mask seeps deep into the skin and makes tired skin look bright and lively. It contains niacinamide as the main ingredient to achieve brightening effects.
Out of the packet, I detected a very strong fragrance. People with sensitive noses will definitely find this off-putting. The essence had a milky-gel consistency. There wasn’t very much left in the packet after the sheet mask was removed, perhaps just half a palm full.
The microfiber sheet felt luxuriously soft and had a medium thickness. It was completely drenched in the essence and did not come with a backing.
Fit was great! It was a large sheet and managed to cover my entire face up to my hairline. It formed a small nose tent so I fixed it by deepening the cuts on both sides with my handy-dandy pair of scissors. Thanks to the softness of the material, it was really easy to manipulate for fit.
Adherence was great as well! The sheet clung onto my skin the moment it touched it. There were no air bubbles nor lifts throughout the entire masking process.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was starting to dry out, especially around the forehead. However, the strong fragrance persisted.
There was little to no essence left to pat in. Finish was greasy tacky and looked dewy.
My skin felt intensely hydrated and moisturized. On my combo skin, it felt a little too thick. I was tempted to wipe off the essence with a toner-soaked cotton. Oily skin types should avoid this. Dry skin types will really enjoy the high moisture this mask provides.
Color wise, my skin looked very bright. You can even see where the mask stopped on my forehead. The dewy finish also lent the physical appearance of increased skin brightness. As for redness, I could still see some 50% of it.
Skin texture wise, I did see a huge improvement. My skin looked supple and plump. So much so that my pores looked smaller than before thanks to the plumping effect.
Step 2: Anti-Dust Luster Ampule Also featuring niacinamide as the main ingredient for brightening the skin, this ampoule also aims to give skin a shiny effect.
Out of the packet, the ampoule was sporting the same strong fragrance as the sheet mask. It had a thin gel consistency and had, what looked like, micro glitter. Now I get why it was able to make the claim of brightening dull skin.
There was enough product in the tiny packet for 2-3 uses. It spreads easily and absorbs fairly easily, leaving behind a tacky and glossy finish. After putting the ingredients list through CosDNA, it doesn’t look to be the cleanest. Kinda surprising for a mask that claims to care for skin affected by pollution.
Step 3: Anti-Dust Eyes Under Corrector Again, this eye cream also aims to brighten the skin around the eyes but it also aims to deliver nutrients deep into the skin to firm and provide wrinkle care.
This eye cream was also sporting the same strong fragrance. It was a thick cream and had a salmon color. Again, this is another temporary brightening fix because the moment I patted this onto the skin my eye area, my skin looked toned up. However, it was so thick and greasy that it didn’t absorb quickly and left behind tony white patches for where the cream was thicker.
At this point my skin felt really stuffy and greasy. I was very tempted to wash it all off. I liked it for the intense hydration and brightening, but disliked it for the strong fragrance, temporary fixes, and greasy finish.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

This was still a good mask on my skin but dry skin will get more mileage out of it. If you have sensitive combo skin like me, I highly recommend the Therapy version from the same line. Check out more Jayjun reviews here.
