Mask Monday: Care Lab (C:LAB) Refresh Aquapeel, Faithful Pudding Mask & Vita Water Mask

Hey everyone!

* Products provided for review. *

I had lots of fun doing the Montagne Jeunesse Mask Challenge back in April and I love face masks in general so I decided to start a new post series called Mask Monday! This will not happen every week, but every 2-3 weeks for sure. I figure trying on masks will give me a little “me time” here and there now that baby girl has arrived.

So today I’m starting off with the Care Lab (C:LAB) masks that I previewed in my unboxing video of Histolab & C:LAB products. Care Lab is the sister brand of Histolab and targets people in their 20s-30s who tend to look for good value of products for money.

I received the “pudding mask set program” which is a 3-step program. Let’s take a look…

Step 1: Refresh Aquapeel

The Refresh Aquapeel is a mild skin scrub that is also a cleanser.

How to Use
Apply Aquapeel on dry face except for the part of eyes and mouth.
After massage and rub it for 30 seconds, rinse with warm water.
Apply toner on the face.

Scent
When I smelled it I though of Sunlight dish soap, but in a good way. It smells very clean.

Formula/Texture
This product is white-ish and has a very very very light gritty feel in it, kind of like a very mild scrub.

Feeling
My face felt soft after using this one.

Step 2: Pudding Mask

I received the Faithful Pudding Mask which is a moisturising mask.

How to Use
Pour Booster powder into Pudding Mask and mix with brush.
Apply over face evenly and thinly within 6m.
Leave for 30m and remove.

Scent
I find it kind of smelled like overcooked asparagus – and it looked like asparagus purée! 🙂

Formula/Texture
This mask had a weird texture. It didn’t quite spread evenly on the face so I had to dab it on. It looks like it’s dripping down my face in places, but it is not, it just stayed like that.

Feeling
This mask felt cool on the face which was nice. It kind of hardened, but not like a mud mask, more like a jello consistency and it peeled off in pieces.

I only used about half of the product – I could’ve shared it with someone.

Step 3: Vita Water Mask

The Vita Water Mask is an intensive nourishing overnight mask and it’s also skin lightening.

How to Use
Before going to bed, spread Vita Water Mask on the face once or twice a week.
Massage for a minute and leave it to be absorbed during the night.

Scent
This mask smells citrus-y and it’s very pleasant. It’s not overpowering at all and it lingers a bit afterwards.

Formula/Texture
This mask is white with little orange balls in it that melt as you rub it on your face.

Feeling
This mask doesn’t fully absorb and it leaves your face sticky. See how slick my face looks after putting it on.

I watched a tv show after doing all these masks and after the show (1 hour) this mask seemed to have absorbed a very wee bit, but my face was still slick so I dabbed at it with a tissue paper.

The Next Morning

The next morning my face felt sticky, so washing it first thing in the morning is a must. After my morning cleansing routine my face felt very hydrated and plump.

Final Thoughts

I’ve never tried masks like these before and they sure were interesting. I’m not sure I’d want to try the Faithful Pudding Mask again because I wasn’t too fond of the smell, but there are 3 more masks in this line that I wouldn’t mind trying out. The Vita Water Mask is not something I would use regularly because of the stickiness it left on my face, but if my face is in dire need of a hydration boost it’s definitely something that would help.

You can buy the Care Lab masks on Korea Department Store.

Would you try these masks?
