SHEET MASK | Oozoo Bear Black Space Pore Caring Mask

Oozoo Bear Black Space Pore Caring Mask

Purchased by me 

The Oozoo is known for their "poppable" sheet masks and when I came across their Oozoo Bear series five years ago, I thought it was the cutest idea to have you pop the "ear" full of serum! There are a few different mask options and after having reviewed the Illuminating and Hydrating versions, this Pore Caring mask is the last Oozoo Bear I have in my collection and it's a good one!

What makes this mask special? Well, other than the 2-step aspect, this is a"pore-tightening" mask that uses a black bamboo sheet to deliver "pore-clearing" ingredients like witch hazel and tea tree leaf extract. You cannot actually reduce the size of your pores, but you can constrict the skin which is what witch hazel does so while the effects are short-lived, oily skin will have a temporary reprieve after using this mask. I don't often use masks like this because I like my oils, but in the summer or after wearing a mask at work all day, a mask like this can be nice.

As usual, even though I find the poppable mask aspect fun, I can never muster the strength to pop this masks in a cool way so I always end up hammering away, but EVENTUALLY I did this ear to pop and the ampoule essence to go through. The ampoule had ceramides in it which serve to reinforce the skin barrier and the mask itself, in addition to the witch hazel and tea tree leaf extract, has glorious peptides!

One thing I have noticed about some of the Oozoo sheet masks is that there is only juuuuust enough essence in the mask pack so they do dry out faster than the expiration date which is what happened here. I have also seen other reviews where people mention the mask wasn't completely soaked (Renee's review). Luckily, you can rehydrate these masks with water since that's the main ingredient and what is missing from the essence.

Final verdict: I ended up buying a 5 pack of these masks so I will make my way through them over the summer, but I liked the way my skin felt upon removal and I loved how soft and pliable my skin felt. Reduction in pore size? That I couldn't really notice, but that is generally never my focus when it comes to masking. I really care most about hydration (which is always good), brightness and if my skin feels soft at the end without a ton of tackiness I would call it a win. The mask essence drying up is something I will keep in mind not just with Oozoo masks, but all masks in general as I work my way through my stash and try not to hoard as much...

Happy Wednesday! Almost halfway through the week!
