My skin is feeling very dry and mildly irritated today. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Step 1: This pack contains a scentless clear gel that is meant to go on the entire face, even eye area. There is enough for two applications.
It felt cool and calming on the skin, and sinks in fast. My skin felt hydrated and looks dewy at this point.
Step 2: This contains a 2-piece sheet mask for the face and neck. It smells faintly of ginseng and was soaked in tons of clear essence. The material is thin yet strong. Since the two pieces came folded together, I found it rather cumbersome to scrunch the wet and slimey neck mask in my hand while I put in the face mask.
Fit was great for face mask, it is wider than it is long. I was impressed by how many slits there are on the neck mask. There is even an opening for the adam’s apple. I was able to get a snug fit very easily and maintain the fit as long as I keep still, not suitable for multi-tasking. However, due to the how viscous the essence was, my neck area started to feeling slightly uncomfortable. I removed just the neck mask after 15 mins. Essence dried down to a slightly tacky finish.
At this point my skin looks visibly brighter, less red, and felt very hydrated. Essence dried down to a slightly tacky finish.
Step 3 contains a thick face and neck cream which has a heavy lotiony scent. The scent and texture reminds of of expensive creams. It’s easily spreadable and sealed everything. However, due to how thick it was, I’d recommend using this separately or if you’re especially dry.
After all 3 steps, my skin felt overly hydrated and greasy, which was not a bad thing for my dry skin, it gave prolonged hydration. My skin also looked brighter, less red, and very glowy. Pore size was minimized too.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
Overall I really enjoyed this mask, the neck area should really be getting more care. It is also great for travels. At $6 a piece on Calij, I think it’s reasonable for a 3-step mask that delivered such excellent quality!
