Oolu by Dr. OhKims Ginseng Gold Mask Pack

Review: Oolu by Dr. OhKims Ginseng Gold Mask Pack ★★★☆☆

I almost didn’t get this mask because it is fairly pricey, compared to the masks I usually get. But it was on sale and my curiosity got the better of my wallet, so here we are.

This mask claims to moisturize, firm, and nourish with star ingredients ginseng extract (10,000 ppm), and colloidal gold (0.01 ppm). It also contains niacinamide, royal jelly extract, licorice extract, propolis extract, and adenosine.

$18.70 for a 5-pack on Kmall24.

Before masking

My skin is generally in a pretty good place today. But I applied CosRx BHA Blackhead Power on my nose prior to this, which caused a skin reaction, resulting in my clown-like appearance. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Material

Out of the packet, this gave off a sweet ginseng fragrance. The 100% botanical cupra material felt super soft and thin, just a tad firmer than silk masks. Essence was watery and drippy. I was expecting to see gold flecks since colloidal gold was on the ingredient list, but it was not there.

During masking

The attached perforated plastic backing made application alot easier. Fit and adherence were great! I had this on for 25 mins, the edges had turned white and were drying out.

After masking

The leftover essence absorbed/evaporated fairly quickly with just a few pats. Finish was matte and not sticky. My skin felt hydrated but not bouncy. There was also slight brightening and calming. The greatest improvement I saw was to my pores. They had shrunk quite a bit. My dehydrated skin type required a moisturizer over this to seal everything in, or it will start to feel stretchy as time went by.

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

This is best for oily skin types or hot days. I was expecting more from this mask considering how well-received their toners are. Perhaps for someone else, this is their HG! YMMV!

Go be beautiful!
