The Craziest Mask I've Ever Tried?! Skincare Sunday - Franz Jet 2-Week Microcurrent Skincare Starter System

Okay, I love trying crazy and out-there skincare products, especially the masks! I've tried crazy ingredients and all different prints, so when I saw a micro-current mask, I knew I needed to try it ASAP!

These products were received as PR samples

I was so excited about trying these masks about and I rushed to purchase them because I needed these on my face immediately! Then, I actually squealed when I was contacted by the PR company that represents Franz and they offered to send the the Franz Jet 2-Week Microcurrent Skincare Starter System! 

This is the world's first microcurrent face mask and it sounds crazy - my husband told me that I can't put a battery on my face! But, Franz has a patented Tissue X™ technology that allows their skin-repairing ingredients to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin.

Franz Jet 2-Week Microcurrent Skincare Starter System ~ $110.00 US. Our signature all-in-one JET Microcurrent Face Mask and Everyday Essence Face Serum that repairs and strengthens the foundation of your skin from the inside and out, resulting in softer, firmer, healthier, clearer and more hydrated skin in just two weeks.

This 2 week starter set that contains 2 sets of the Dual Mask System (4 masks altogether) as well as the Everyday Essence Face Serum! I did use the 2 week system as suggested to try out these products. 

The 2 week system is designed for the masks to be used twice per week (every 3rd day), and the serum is meant for use twice daily morning and night. When used together, the microcurrent sheet mask system and every day serum are supposed to accelerate the recovery of your skin from the inside out - the products are meant to moisturize, hydrate, firm, clarify, reduce the appearance of pore and fine lines, and strengthen the skin barrier.

Franz Jet Microcurrent Dual Face Mask System ~ $40.00 US for 2 sets. Patented microcurrent technology helps the absorption of key ingredients (Oligo Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide and Copper Tripeptide-1) to help hydrate, tighten and soften your skin. 

This was of course the product that I was the most excited to try - the microcurrent mask systems! This comes with two sets of masks and each mask comes with 3 steps to it!

Each Franz Jet Dual Mask system contains: 
  • 2 Enriching Masks (Wet)
  • 2 Boosting Essences (3ml each)
  • 2 Empowering Masks (Dry)

To use this mask system, you start with clean dry skin, and apply the Enriching mask to the face. This mask came with a ton of extra essence (almost a handful), so make sure to apply to the face first. I was actually really impressed with the fit of the mask - it fit the contours of my face well!

The second step is applying the Boosting Essence to the back side of each ion cell on the Empowering Mask. I was a little bit nervous about making sure I had the right side when applying - basically you apply it the flat side, then the piece that sticks out with Franz written on the front is the outside. (Also, it says Apply Boosting Essence here with an arrow).

Then the third and final step is to apply the Empowering Mask and wear for 25 minutes. You just lay this mask over top on the Enriching Mask - apply the side of the mask that you just applied the Boosting Essence to. This one didn't lay as nicely as the Enriching Mask as it is a dry mask; but, it was able to smooth down nicely.

I just relaxed while wearing this mask and it was easy to wear - I found I couldn't quite get the 25 minutes out of the mask - it was closer to 20 minutes and the top mask was separating and most of the essence was absorbed. You don't feel a thing while wearing this mask (I was slightly nervous that maybe it would feel tingly or something from the microcurrent, but not at all!) It feels just like a regular sheet mask. 

Once you remove the mask, it suggests that you pat the remaining essence in to the skin and not to apply any other products for the overnight. I did think that this worked well on my skin - it felt very refreshed and looked brighter and refreshed. I thought over the course of two weeks that my skin really liked these masks and it improved the appearance overall and my skin looked firmer and smoother!

This serum has a dropper applicator - so I use a drop in the morning and night. I found this had a very strong fragrance as well; the ingredient list just has "fragrance" as the final ingredient and I find it a little floral. 

The serum itself was fine and I did find it hydrating on my skin. But, I think there was something that just didn't agree with my skin. I did try it morning and night as suggested, but I couldn't use it for the straight two weeks. I found this broke me out a little - I would use it for a couple of days and get these little breakouts on my chin. As this was the only new product in my routine, I would stop for a day or two and it would clear up, then I would try the serum again and they would come back. I did do this a couple of times. I did also try this right as I got back from holidays after a week break of using it and found it did the same thing. I'm by no means saying this will break everyone out, I just might be sensitive to the fragrance or an ingredient in it. I did think it was hydrating and will pass it on to a friend with a different skin type, so they can get the moisturizing benefits!

Overall, I did enjoy this 2 week starter system - I loved the masks, they are so unique and worked well! I'm really happy I picked more up, so while they are pricey they do have good benefits! I did think the serum added hydration and was a little sad that it wasn't a good match for my skin! What do you think - craziest mask?! Would you try it?

  1. These masks sound so interesting! Glad to hear they delivered results too. But it's too bad about the serum though.

  2. I think the masks worked well as well, but I think I was expecting more from them considering the technology. I wouldn't say no to purchasing them at a good price though!
