Karuna, founded by Linda Wang, prides itself by combining "science and nature to solve the most common skin concerns in a fresh, modern way." Unlike other products I've used in jars and tubes, these face masks are neat and simple to use. The individual packets make them easy to travel with and the multiple formulas make it easy to have an at-home facial to address a particular skin concern.
They offer masks in the following varieties:
- Skin Restoring (Karuna Luxe; $48)
- Renewal Eye ($36)
- Age Defying
They also offer the Karma Kit, which includes one of each of the following masks: Exfoliating, Hydating, Anti-Oxidant and Age Defying, a great way to sample a variety of masks. The Karma Mit and all masks are $28 for a month's supply, except where indicated differently.
The Brightening Mask and its respective directions are described as follows on the Karuna Skin website:
Revealing & Enlightening
Grapefruit Seed Extract deflects environmental toxins from the skin, while rare Asian plant extracts help to create a fresher-looking, smoother-feeling complexion.
All-natural fiber cloth retains 50% more moisture than synthetic, helping pores fully absorb the paraben-free beneficial ingredients. Made from bio-degradable wood pulp, our cloth is truly a green and luxurious alternative.
start with a
freshly washed face
gently unfold mask and
place cloth side on face
adjust over mouth,
nose & eyes
remove backing and
relax for 10-20
Once the allotted time has passed, peel the mask from your face and discard. There is no need to rinse. Karuna recommends massaging the remaining product into neck and hands. They further recommend using the mask once a week.
