I love quirky beauty products. I bet all girls do. That’s what makes them buy it! Sometimes you thought you’ve seen it all, used it all, then something quirkier came out and it blew your mind. This was what makes my eye balls popped out of the socket several months ago. I first saw this new Dr. Brand Magnetight Skin Recharging Magnet Mask from Tati of Glam Life Guru channel. I quickly went on Kensapothecary website to see if we have it here in Malaysia and most importantly the price but to only find out that we do not have it. Yet. Fast forward to a month or two ago, we can finally buy Magnetight mask.
I have the mask for quite some time now. I did a quick Insta Stories first impression, literally bringing you along as I unbox and apply the mask for the first time, and many of you DM-ed me saying you saw a significant smoother and brighter skin as soon as I removed the mask. I promised an Insta Video and that took me a while to post up because my eczema on the forehead is having too much fun. It would be so weird to see a red patch on the forehead hehe. If you missed the video, you can check it out here.
Dr. Brand Magnetight Skin Recharging Magnet Mask comes in a hefty square tub. I for one is not someone who read instruction before using any skincare so I really do appreciate the box that has a 3-piece top, which I need to flip open one by one in order to get the tub out. Each piece are printed with a step by step how-to-use instruction. It was pretty handy for me. I already know this is a magnet mask that comes with a piece of magnet for removal so I was searching high and low for that piece of magnet only to find it sticking tightly on the bottom of the tub. How genius!
I received quite a lot of enquiry on what does the mask do. Basically everyone is curious as to its function so to speak. It is defined as age-defying mask therefore I am just going to classified this as an anti-aging mask. It claimed to dramatically transforming the skin appearance by harnessing the power of attraction. Hence the magnetic mask gimmick. It is also said that the magnetic properties in the mask has iron based formula that is able to help in reducing signs of aging and to destress the skin, transforming the skin into a more energized looking skin. Now, that’s not too much to digest isn’t it 😀
It is a magnetic mask afterall so the product comes in a dark grey shade. It has a smell to it. Scent is kinda personal so I apologize if you’re smelling something different than what my nose picked up. I do smell that metal-y scent, only more pleasant. However it is quite strong. You will smell this on your face for the next 10-minutes you have the mask on and after that as well.
The whole package also include a plastic spatula. It does a fine job in scooping the product out of the tub. I was supposed to be applying the mask on my face using the same spatula but I find that it doesn’t give me a smooth application as how I like it to be. Sometimes, well most of the time a thick application *giggles*.
Magnetight Skin Recharging Magnet Mask is thick and creamy. What I like about the mask is that it doesn’t dries down to a harden mask. So I can take my sweet time applying and smoothing out the mask. Application is a breeze now that I have a proper face mask brush application haha! I usually have the mask on and start working on my laptop. By the time I know it, it’s time to remove the mask. That my friend, is the most exciting part about the mask!
Remember that triangle piece of magnet included, wrap that magnet with a piece of tissue paper and start “gliding” it all over the surface of the skin. No pressure needed AT ALL. The magnet will work it’s magic. What I like to do is to watch the mask lifted from the skin to the tissue paper effortlessly. However, this process is also the messiest task despite being the most fun and interesting one. You will need to replace the tissue every now and then as the magnet will not be as powerful as the beginning when the mask are all piled up on the magnet. All I do is to flip the tissue around. Sounds easy right? Not! Even removing the tissue from the magnet is a challenging job. The mask residue are stuck tightly on the tissue. You will need a little bit of force to rip it off from the magnet. Most of the time the mask residue will get onto the magnet. Needless to say removing that residue from the piece of magnet is even more challenging lol!! But fret not. Once you get the hang of it, it will be an easy job. I have been using this mask for several times now and it’s been good so far.
Once you’ve done the fun part of removing the mask from your face, just massage in the remaining product into the skin. This is why I mentioned that you will smell the metal-y mask scent even after removal. I have to tell you that there will be a layer of oil on the skin, which is what you don’t rinse off but massage in. Yes it is a little bit oily so what I like to do is to use a clean piece of tissue paper, wrap around the magnet and run all over my face to remove most of the residue. Even though so there will still be a little bit of oil left on the skin, which I did not mind at all as my face are significantly smoother and brighter. Does the effect last? Yes for me. The entire day in fact 😉
