Man-made.

Tested on animals in home country/EU/sold in territories that require testing?
Unsure/No/Yes. Dr.Jart+ has standalone stores in China.

How does it smell?
It doesn’t particularly smell of anything.

How do you use it?
It suggests to apply after cleansing in the evening and sleep in it, but I found it better to apply in a thick layer, leave 10 minutes and either wash off to remove excess or take off with a toner. I still do this in the evenng.

Can it be taken around the eyes?
Yes.

Best for winter or summer?
Either.

How long did I test it for?
I’ve used it about 5/6 times.

How much is it? /Size/Approximate cost per usage?
$48.00 for 30 x 3ml individual sachets. $1.60 each.

Works well with?
Anything. It’s a mask but obviously if you have troubled skin the entire Cicapair range is made with you in mind.

What’s the website like?
Well they have one, which is an improvement from the last time I reviewed them. There doesn’t appear to be international shipping and from the UK, you are directed to Sephora to buy.

How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?
Limited. Sephora in the US, Selfridges in the UK, selected doors worldwide – more info here: us.drjart.com

What’s good about it?
I love, love, love this packaging. I know that isn’t as important as the juice, but when you travel as much as I do, you appreciate anything that makes it easier to carry skincare around. They are 3ml individual sachets with a perforated tear top. They fit into any tiny space and don’t count as a liquid on the plane.

Packaging aside, it’s a fairly rich formula and does offer immediate relief to the skin. It’s too rich to leave on the skin (for skin that is not extremely dry) as a cream for day, so there isn’t much space for multi-tasking with this mask. I generally use it after flying, but I’ll be taking them on holiday to help repair after being out in the sun.

What’s not so good about it?
It’s a little too rich for me and I woke up with the odd whitehead after using it, despite using during/after traveling when I felt particularly dry. It hasn’t put me off using it however and I’m keeping them!

Would I purchase/repurchase?
Probably not, but only because it’s not 100% right for my skin. If you are dry, suffer from rosacea or sensitised skin, I’m sure you’ll love it. I just need them to release a Ceramidin Sachet Mask and I’ll be all set.

Do you need it?
Potentially yes, if I’m describing your skin and you like the idea of single use dispensing.

Similar products?
Not to my knowledge, it’s pretty unique at the moment.
