While browsing Ulta early last month, I came across a Korean skincare brand called I Dew Care. What immediately caught my eye was their gorgeous minimal packaging and uniquely named masks. Disco Kitten, in particular, stood out to me the most, so I decided to give it a try as I was in need of a new peel-off mask and this one sounded too fun to pass up. Safe to say I was instantly hooked. Fast forward to a few days ago when I saw that the brand had released two more masks – Sugar Kitten and Space Kitten – and I knew I had to pick them up and do a full review for you guys because this is a brand that I’ve yet to really see anyone talk about (and honestly, it deserves so much love).
The masks come in minimally-designed plastic pots and you get 2.87 oz of product per container for $23 USD. I’ve already used the Disco Kitten mask three times and there’s still 3/4 of the container left to use, so I feel like you definitely get a good amount of product. When compared to Glamglow (which I feel is very similar to these), you get almost twice the amount of product for a third of the cost. The pots are easily stackable, look hella cute in photos, and the masks come in three different formulas – Disco (brightening), Sugar (hydrating), and Space (exfoliating).
Space Kitten is like a swirling cosmic galaxy for your face. It’s a black peel-off mask infused with thousands of little flecks of glitter (that surprisingly don’t get on your face at all after peeling off), as well as rich nutrients like charcoal, volcanic ash, and sapphire powder. This mask helps clean the skin of any excess oils and impurities, and the sapphire powder works to exfoliate the skin for a healthier complexion. What I’ve noticed about this mask is that it is a little more painful to peel off, which I like because I feel like it really gets all of my dead skin off and my face feels so clean and firm afterwards.
This mask is a mermaid lovers dream! Sugar Kitten is a hydrating peel-off mask infused with rose water and hyaluronic acid to really nourish the skin. The best part? This shimmery, color-changing mask is a pale mint green in the jar but turns into an iridescent lavender purple once it dries down, so you know exactly when you can take it off (plus it’s just really freaking cool having shimmering purple skin). This mask leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple without any sort of greasy residue, which is different for a peel-off mask but something that I really quite like.
Disco Kitten was the gateway drug into my current love affair with I Dew Care, so it of course holds a special place in my heart. I remember what drew me in to purchasing this was the promise of pearlescent, diamond-like skin for the 20 minutes it takes the mask to dry, and upon trying I was completely entranced. The mask applies white and shifts to a shimmering pearly sheen as it dries down. The formula is filled with so many good nutrients, like Orange Flower, Jasmine, Rice Bran, and Magnolia, as well as pearl and diamond powders to help brighten the complexion and boost elasticity. I’ve loved using this whenever my skin looks particularly lackluster and in need of a boost.
Here are some swatches so you can see what the masks look like dried down. How cool does Sugar Kitten look?! I don’t know how they get it to change colors like that, but I absolutely love it.
I’m such a huge fan of this brand already and can’t wait to see what they’ll come out with next. If you’re interested in trying them out for yourselves (#notsponsored), there’s a mini trio at Ulta that includes each Kitten mask and it’s only $19, less than the price of one full size mask!
