Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica

Calamine is a wonderful calming ingredient so it shouldn't surprise us why Rovectin decided to use it as the main star of Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica. Is this the new best mask for sensitive skin? 

About Rovectin 

Convection is a South Korean brand, but the name Rovectin comes from the Latin word "reverti" which in the brand's view means "to return to where it was". Rovectin was created for cancer patients, but Rovectin has an even deeper story. It's a story of siblings - a brother who wanted to help his sister during her chemotherapy. Rovectin products are good for sensitive skin, they are all cruelty-free and free from many sensitizing ingredients.

Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica comes in a paper box, each box contains 5 separate sheet masks.  

Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica - Texture & Scent  

I believe these sheet masks are bio-cellulose masks. The texture is nice, and I adore this gel-like texture of essence, but the heavy peach & alcohol scent is too heavy for me. And Nah, I had no idea if this mask contains peaches, but it smelled like peaches to me.

Water hides in cosmetic products under names such as Aqua or Eau. It's a solvent, but it's not your regular drinking water. Water in skin care needs to fit some standards. It should be clean and free from minerals, microorganisms or other substances. Usually, water makes up the majority of the content of the product. Glycerin or Glycerol is a humectant. Its origin can be natural or synthetic - depending on the product. It protects TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and naturally occurs in the skin. It's one of the NMFs - natural moisturizing factors. It's practical in hair care. Glycerin won't clog your skin or irritate it just the opposite - it protects your skin from irritation. Alcohol is an immense topic in skincare. Alcohol can be good or bad for your skin, but sometimes the amount makes a poison. Alcohol, after all, is a prominent solvent. It makes active substances penetrate the skin deeper. This effect has its cost - the skin is getting a bit irritated. Some substances can be dissolved only in alcohol. This ingredient has antibacterial properties. It works as a preservative by preventing microorganisms from growing in the product. It has some awful sides too - it can dry your skin, mainly if we use it in large amounts. Sensitive skin is not a fan of this ingredient. Methylpropanediol is a solvent with antimicrobial properties. 1,2-Hexanediol is a synthetic solvent and preservative - it protects products from microorganisms by boosting other preservatives. At the same time, it can moisturize the skin, and it has no unpleasant effects on your epidermis. Dipropylene Glycol is a solvent with moisturizing properties. Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer is a polymer that works as an emulsifier and thickener. Ammonium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate/​VP Copolymer is a polymer with thickening properties. Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract has anti-inflammatory properties. Arginine is an amino acid. It helps with protein biosynthesis in adults. According to research from 1964, a lack of arginine might raise your chance to get an HSV infection. Centella Asiatica Extract is probably the most popular extract in skincare. It comes under a few names - Asiatic pennywort, tiger grass or Gotu kola. Centella Asiatica's roots are in Ayurveda. This extract is successful because it's a source of triterpene saponins - madecassoside and asiaticoside. Centella Asiatica Extract has anti-inflammatory properties. It speeds up the wound-healing process. You can use it to treat acne since it has soothing and antibacterial properties. It boosts fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin or even helps with hyaluronic acid synthesis. Centella is recommended for rosacea and cellulitis since it helps with blood microcirculation. In hair care, Centella can help with hair growth. Madecassoside is a bioactive part of Centella Asiatica. It's an antioxidant and can stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis to promote wound healing. It has soothing effects, and it might have anti-aging properties if we combine it with vitamin C. Sodium Hyaluronate or sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. It's a form of hyaluronic acid and naturally occurs in the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate has strong water-binding properties. Sodium hyaluronate combined with elastin and collagen is like a scaffolding for the skin. It has hydrating properties and leaves a hydrating film on the skin, but sodium hyaluronate prevents skincare products from drying. Trehalose is a disaccharide. We all know that sugar is awesome for the skin. What does it do? Trehalose similar to other sugars has water-binding properties. Trehalose kinda acts like NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor). 

Betaine is an amino acid. In skincare products, we use it for its moisturizing properties. Betaine keeps the water balance of the skin. It makes wrinkles appear less visible, and it soothes irritated skin. In hair care, betaine doesn't only moisturize the hair. It makes hair soft and shiny. Betaine in cosmetics usually comes from sweet beetroots. It naturally occurs in the skin and hair. Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate is an emulsifier. Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate is an emulsifier. Not every acne-prone skin will enjoy it. Calamine is a mineral powder with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It has a calming effect on the skin, and it works on acne. It absorbs the sebum and can be used after sun exposure. Disodium EDTA neutralizes metal ions in the formula to keep products fresh. Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract is a potent antioxidant. It tones the skin and delicately smoothes it out. Acne-prone skin and grey skin should enjoy this one. Houttuynia Cordata Extract is an ingredient that some people with acne-prone skin love while for me, my experience was not bad but still all hail Centella! Houttuynia Cordata is a plant, which we still use in Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine, it's also known as Heart Leaf or Chinese lizard tail. Funny fact about Houttuynia - it's also called Fish Wort, Fish Leaf, etc. because it's an edible plant and it usually leaves a fishy aftertaste. I eat fish a lot, but I'm not a fan of the fishy taste of low-quality matcha (yep, I'm a tea & fish snob) so I don't think I would enjoy it, I'll stay with enjoying Houttuynia magic in skincare. Houttuynia is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It's also a source of quercetin, quercitrin, rutin and hyperin. If your skin is sensitive, you might love it! It speeds up wound healing properties, and it might help with capillaries. Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract is a source of camphor and rosemaric acid. It's an antioxidant with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Althaea Rosea Flower Extract or Common Hollyhock Flower Extract is supposed to moisturize and soothe the skin. In herbal medicine, this plant is considered to be an emollient with soothing properties. Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract is a source of eucalyptol, rutin and quercetin. Eucalyptus has antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. It can help balance sebum production and help with dandruff. Lavandula Hybrida (Lavender) Oil is an essential oil with antibacterial properties. It might help with dandruff and sebum production. Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil is an essential oil with a characteristic scent. It has some relaxing and antibacterial properties, but it can irritate your skin. Butylene Glycol is a common ingredient in products. It's not only a solvent. We use butylene glycol because it helps with the penetration of active ingredients, protects products from drying and moisturizes skin and hair. This ingredient can prevent hair loss and make your hair stronger. Caprylyl Glycol is an oily emollient and humectant. It leaves a moisturizing film on the surface of the skin. Ethylhexylglycerin is a preservative with subtle moisturizing and antimicrobial properties.

How does Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica work?  

I guess I'll be the only person who doesn't like these masks on my planet. The idea of Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica was great since it contains calamine, madecassoside and BHA. The formula itself feels nice on the skin, but not every skin will enjoy it.   

According to Rovectin, Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica contains fermented alcohol that shouldn't irritate the skin. Guess what? My skin hates it! My skin lately hates alcohol a lot. Even if the mask fits my skin and has many great ingredients, the scent and alcohol in the product make me hate it. If you search for a calming mask then I would recommend you choose Midnight Blue Mask from Klairs or Mugwort Mask from I'm From - both are also available on Wishtrend.

Where to get Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica?  

If alcohol is not a problem for you then Rovectin Dr. Mask Cica** costs $4 for a single sheet on Wishtrend. You can use my code DOMINIKA15 to get 15% off on your Wishtrend** purchase.    

Overall, this review was very simple, because I don't want to recommend a product that didn't work for me. If alcohol is not a problem for you - give it a try, if your skin is sensitive - do a patch test of essence left in the packaging before using this mask.  

Have you tried Rovectin before?
