Apparently, the Face Patch is infused with an active ingredient called centella asiatica, also known as tiger grass, which can soothe skin and promote healthier barrier function, according to Joshua Zeichner MD
, Director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research in Dermatologist at Mount Sinai Hospital. He also added that the patch is likely made up of flexible polymers that allow the mask to maintain a somewhat flexible and breathable texture once it has dried on your skin. It all sounded interesting enough, so I slathered it on and hoped for the best. Spoiler alert: I regretted it immediately.
