The Raw Job’s Tears series by Taiwanese brand Naruko are famed for its 2 vital ingredients: Gluconolactone which is a type of chemical exfoliant that helps in skin turnover and renewal; Niacianamide aids in collagen reproduction and lightening of pigmentation. This skincare range has also received raving reviews with its pore-minimizing and brightening effects.
The Raw Job’s Tears Supercritical CO2 Pore Minimizing & Brightening Night Gelly is a fancy sleeping mask that treats the skin overnight, but is hydrating enough as a stand-alone moisturizer I use alternately with Clarins night cream.
Texture-wise, it’s viscous but spreads on easily to create a layer of film that stays on all night. The product contains 5% Gluconolactone removing excess sebum and tightens the pores for softer skin. The brightening effect is rather subtle but I definitely notice over a month’s use, my skin is smoother and less visible pores.
Raw Job’s Tears Supercritical CO2 Pore Minimizing & Brightening Masks come in a standard 10-piece set, to supplement the Night Gelly for a complete beauty regimen. Each pack includes a cotton sheet saturated with essence; the first few packs were duds as the material was so brittle that the sheets tore at the slightest tug.
I also picked up another box of Magnolia Brightening and Firming Masks designed for skin that needed that extra firmness. The material is of a superior caliber in which it’s thicker and stretchable, and comes with an extra flap which wraps around the entire jaw and locked in place with “ear hooks” – similar to the SexyLook 4D Duo Lifting Masks Overall, both are decent products that give the skin an extra boost of nourishment.
I love how much attention is paid to the packaging for sheet masks: keep them to store your knickknacks or for journaling. A good strategy to keep the brand in consumers’ consciousness, I suppose!
