Korean Beauty is the latest skincare trend that has conquered the beauty world, and when it comes to high-performing skincare innovations, Dr.Jart+ and their new Shake & Shot masks are king!
What Is K-Beauty?
On a very basic level, K-Beauty (or Korean Beauty to you and me) refers to all the skincare products that originate from South Korea.
Korean beauty brands are always looking to create the next best thing, and Dr.Jart+ is definitely ahead of the crowd when it comes to high-performing skincare innovations.
Dr.Jart+ is the skincare brand that is taking the health and beauty world by storm. Founded by dermatologist Dr. Sung Jae Jung and entrepreneur JinWook Lee in 2004, this skincare brand is powered by science and inspired by art.
They use rigorous research to deliver effective treatment and visible results. In fact, they’ve just created the latest trend in masking: ashaking rubber face mask.
The Shake & Shot Face Mask
Some of you Glossies will have been treated to one of Dr.Jart+’s Shake & Shot face masks, either the Shake & Shot Rubber Hydro Mask or the Shake & Shot Rubber Firming Mask. A fun, DIY rubbery modelling mask, they nourish your skin with high-potency active ingredients, leaving you with a healthy and dewy-looking complexion!
These Dr.Jart+ Shake & Shot masks are no ordinary face masks. They boast an innovative cream-to-sheet formula that penetrates the skin more deeply than a traditional sheet mask, moisturising your skin quickly and effectively.
Using Your Shake & Shot Masks
One of the best things about this mask is that it’s fun and easy to use! Simply follow this eight step guide and you’ll have the best skin of your life!
Open the pot and remove the spatula from the lid.
Pour both the Step 1 Super Booster and Step 2 Liquid Ampoule into the cup.
Place the lid back onto the cup and shake it well until the Super Booster and Liquid Ampoule are fully mixed together.
Use the spatula to apply an even layer over your entire face. Make sure you do this within two or three minutes of having mixed the products together.
Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes, giving the cream time to turn to rubber.
Gently peel the mask off, starting at the edges.
Remove any excess with a damp cotton cloth.
Follow up with your usual skincare routine (cleanse, tone and moisturise).
And voila! You’ll have a smooth, healthy and dewy-looking complexion.
A Brief History Of K-Beauty
While Korean beauty has disrupted traditional western skincare because of its forward-thinking techniques and formulas, K-Beauty is more than just innovative products. It’s a lifestyle.
Korean Beauty is about nourishing your skin so it looks amazing without makeup.
Rather than focusing on the immediate impact, Korean Beauty centres around lasting, long-term results. They view skincare as a form of self-care, with kids learning to apply moisturiser the same way they learn how to brush their teeth.
They’ll follow a rigorous ten-step skincare routine to maintain a healthy complexion, rather than having to reverse damage or cover it up with makeup.
It’s All About Innovation
Korean beauty products are based on the natural ingredients used thousands of years ago by Korea’s agricultural society. They healed and protected their skin from sun damage using ingredients that boast rich antioxidant benefits and hydrating properties.
The industry, however, hasn’t shied away from introducing new and unique ingredients to their formulas, including snail mucin, bee venom and donkey milk. We’re so grateful for their innovative and creative thinking. We might never have had these Dr.Jart+ Shake & Shot masks otherwise!
