The concept behind the Dr Wu Capsule Mask Series is simple: The brand suggests that skin shows signs of fatigue and loss of elasticity when it lacks certain vitamins, so it has created targeted sheet masks to give your skin a dose of vitamins A, B, C, D or E. Take your pick below!
Dr Wu Deep Hydrating Capsule Mask with Vitamin A
Best for: Fine lines and dehydrated skin.
Its main active ingredient is a Vitamin A complex that has a combination of retinol (a known anti-ager) and palmitic acid (a fatty acid) to moisturise skin and stimulate collagen production.
Dr Wu Soothing Moisture Capsule Mask with Vitamin B
Best for: Dry and irritated skin.
The two key ingredients – vitamin B3 and vitamin B5 – help to moisturise and soothe skin. Both vitamins B3 and B5 also help to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function to prevent moisture loss and keep your skin plumped and healthy.
Dr Wu Instant Whitening Capsule Mask with Vitamin C
Best for: Dull and sensitive skin.
These masks are soaked with vitamin C derivatives and antioxidant-rich extracts from Amazonian camu camu fruit and kiwis to brighten your complexion and slow the formation of dark spots and pigmentation. It also has anti-inflammatory liquorice extract to soothe skin redness.
Dr Wu Perfect Renewal Capsule Mask with Vitamin D
Best for: Inflamed and sensitive skin.
A complex that’s rich in vitamins A, D and E helps to enhance and strengthen your skin’s natural barrier function. This also has white willow bark extract to lessen the appearance of fine lines and a fermented extract to help stimulate skin cell renewal and balance sebum production.
Dr Wu Anti-Wrinkle Firming Capsule Mask with Vitamin E
Best for: Fine lines and irritated skin.
This contains the same vitamin A complex in the Dr Wu Deep Hydrating Capsule Mask with Vitamin A, but also has vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant. The added vitamin E helps to protect skin against free radical damage to prevent premature ageing, and also has anti-inflammatory properties to calm irritations.
All the Dr Wu Capsule Masks are retailing at $19.90 per box (three pieces), and are available at selected Watsons stores or online at www.drwu.com.sg.
