Review: I’m From Honey Mask ★★★★☆

This wash-off mask claims to nourish, hydrate, moisturize, soothe, brighten, and improve skin elasticity. It contains 38.7% of real Jirisan herbal honey, propolis, bentonite, bee venom, macadamia nut oil, jojoba seed oil, hazelnut oil, and sunflower seed. From Wishtrend website:

Jirisan Herbal Honey
Jirisan, one of the areas most abundant with wild herbs in Korea, is privileged with key environmental conditions that allow their herbs to grow with maximum potency. The Jirisan natural honey is full of the 1000+ plants and herbs that grow in Jirisan, along with various nutrients.

Propolis: Rich in various vitamins, minerals, amino acids
Bentonite: Absorbs sebum, removes impurities, nourishes, replenishes elasticity.
Bee Venom: Promotes oil-water balance
Macadamia Nut Oil: Moisturizing suppleness
Jojoba Seed Oil: Nourishing
Hazelnut Oil: Pore tightening

I did see some separation in my jar but it’s normal since it contains real natural honey. I gave it a stir with my spatula before applying it onto my skin. I’m really excited about this one, my sensitive skin loves honey.

Before masking

My skin is feeling slightly dry and dull. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

The scent with so delicious and irresistible, I gave it a lick 😋 Erm, don’t do that, it’s not as delicious as it smells, the bitterness stayed on my tongue for a good 15 mins. The consistency is more like a honey cream. Very rich and smooth. Due to how creamy it was, I found it easier to get an even layer by applying it with my fingers than with the spatula.

During masking

Application was really easy, no drips or clumping. I had this on for 45 mins, the recommended duration was 10 – 60 mins. It was not showing any signs of drying out nor irritating my skin. I scrapped off the excess with the ergonomical spatula before rinsing. Rinsing it off was easy, but it left behind a film of hydrating wax which I wasn’t used to, so I might have rinsed off more than necessary. Note to self, please rinse gently next time.

After masking

My skin felt so smooth and soft I couldn’t stop touching it! I topped it off with a light moisturizer like CosRx Snail Essence and I was good. My skin did not show any dramatic effects, perhaps just a slight reduction in fine lines. It feels wayyy better than it looks. I really like this mask!

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

Due to how hydrating it is, I don’t think this will feel comfortable on oily skin. Despite the price tag, you do get 120g/4.23oz of quality product, which is still a whole lot in my opinion. I’d still use this conservatively so it’ll last longer.

Recently I’ve been experimenting with using this as a sleeping mask. I applied a very thin layer after my PM routine. This is pretty sticky so it was a challenge not to get it all over my hair and pillow. I woke up to very soft and hydrated skin! However, as the recommended wear time maxed at 60 minutes, my skin did experience some clogging. So I don’t encourage using this as a sleeping mask every night especially for clog-prone skin. Nevertheless, whenever my skin is extra dry, I will definitely use it this way!
