23 Years Old May Be the Time Machine Your Skin Needs, Whatever Your Age

Whatever you think of your early 20s, good or bad, there’s no denying that 23-year-old skin is covetable.

About the product

What Is It:


23 Years Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask is the ultimate masking experience. This two-step modeling mask is the key super hydrated, beamingly bright skin. The best part? Now it’s available to use at home! Formerly the Korean esthetician’s best kept secret, this rubbery mask penetrates deep into your skin, delivering glow, bounce, and the kind of silky smooth finish previously only found in a professional facial.

The first botanical in this mask, Morus alba bark extract, has been shown to improve uneven skin tone. The second botanical, licorice root extract, is a well-known brightening powerhouse. To calm and repair your skin 23 Year Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask includes Centella asiatica extract and Camellia sinensis leaf extract, two well documented healers and soothers. Ginger root extract, a powerful antioxidant, provides nutrition and energy. For hydration ceramides, jojoba, and lanolin oil have you covered.

Once you mix and apply 23 Year Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask, it will firm up from nourishing gel to a solid rubbery texture. The benefit of this texture is it acts as a seal on your skin, pushing the nutrient rich botanicals and emollients as deep as possible into the skin. This is what sets 23 Year Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask apart from a typical sheet masking experience and elevates it to the next level!


Our insight:


Can’t decide between this mask and the 23 Years Old C-Tragel Modeling Mask? Both are excellent brighteners and hydrators, but we find this one to be just a smidge more emollient.



How to use:


Mix the crystal gel packet & the powder pack together in the mixing bowl. Stir the mixture with the spatula well until completely mixed. Using the spatula, apply a thick and even layer over the entire face. After the mask has dried for about 20 minutes, remove the mask, gently peeling in an upward direction starting from the bottom. Don’t forget to lightly tap the remaining essence on the skin for full absorption and to get the most out of your masking experience.
