Review

Results you may expect from using STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack:

Based on the ingredient analysis by CreamScan, these are the key benefits you can expect from using STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack:

  • Moderate moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 5.2 out of 10.
  • Little anti-wrinkle effect: STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack has an anti-wrinkle rating of 0.1 out of 10, so you may expect a positive, although insignificant, effect on wrinkles.
  • Antioxidant protection.

How moisturizing is it?

Quite moisturizing: STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack has a moisturizing rating of 5.2 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Significantly more humectant. It has a low occlusivity of 0.4 out of 10 and a maximum humectancy of 10 out of 10, primarily due to the high content of Glycerin (est. ≈4.0%) and Butylene Glycol (est. ≈3.0%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack has a minimal anti-wrinkle rating of 0.1 out of 10. It contains one ingredient with proven anti-wrinkle efficacy: Ascorbic Acid (est. ≈0.3%),
or Vitamin C, a popular anti-wrinkle ingredient, yet with average efficacy confirmed by only one study.
 
Among others, STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack also contains contains Centella Asiatica Extract and Leontopodium Alpinum Callus Culture Extract, two ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not contribute to the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that STARSKIN PRO Micro-Filler Mask Pack is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (est. ≈1.5%), Centella Asiatica Extract (est. ≈1.0%), Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (est. ≈0.3%), and others.

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.
