What is VT Cica Purifying Mask?

VT Cica Purifying Mask is a soothing cica wash-off clay mask. VT Cosmetics claims its mask to be a  creamy mud formula with Charcoal Powder, Centella Asiatica Extract, and 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid.  VT's CICA CLAY is said to take care of skin impurities caused by clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, oily sebum, and flaky dead cell.  The formulation cares for skin smoothly by cleansing sebum without a stripping feeling and offers moistness at the same time.

My Thoughts on VT Cica Purifying Mask

Before that, do take note that VT Cica Purifying Mask and VT Cica Capsule Mask are 2 different products. You may refer to below:
1) CICA CAPSULE MASK:  Pore care + Soothing
Suitable for skin that has a lot of sebum and needs more care and sedation care
2) CICA PURIFYING MASK:  Pore care + Moisturizing
Suitable for dry and rough skin that requires mild pore care and moisture management

Looking into the full list of ingredients for VT Cica Purifying Mask its INCI list has seemed to be upgraded, referring to the INCI list's I found on the brand's official selling websites, the INCI on my packaging box shows a slightly different list. I'm unsure if VT Cosmetics has upgraded its formulation because the INCI list on my box seems more promising. Comparing both INCI lists, the ingredients used are still mostly the same, but the big difference is that the list on my box has actives sitting on top of the list instead of the very bottom from the previous one.

Actives to highlight are Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassoside, Madecassic Acid, Hyaluronic Acids, and Green Tea. This clay mask also contains Kaolin, Propolis, plant extracts, and mostly skin-identical ingredients. However, it does contain quite a number of comedogenic ingredients and also contains fragrance too.

It comes in a green fully covered plastic tub with a screw cap. Labels are mostly in Korean.

It's indeed a creamy and muddy clay, very soft and smooth. I find the application very easy as it glides smoothly onto the skin. 

Scent doesn't seem to be too strong even with added fragrance


Honestly, I have only managed to try this clay mask once. While application I did feel quite a tingly feel but after a minute or so I didn't feel it anymore. This mask does live to its claim that it does not stretch the skin at all even after it's dried. Washing it off also is very easy, and wiping it off is as quick as ever. So far my experience with this mask does seem pleasing. My skin felt soft and soothed too.

Overall Thoughts
So far I'm liking this purifying mask, but I'm not sure if I will still like it after a few tries. I'll update this post again once I have.
