NOHJ 24K Gold Mask contains 1,300 mg of 5 different types of peptides like palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and copper tripeptide-1. The combination of these peptides and botanical extracts aims to relieve skin stress and soothe dry skin.
Lemon extract – One of the main ingredients of lemon extract is citric acid, which has been found effective against a number of skin problems such as acne. It is because of the presence of vitamin C in this citrus fruit that promotes healthy, glowing skin.
Lavender extract – relieves stress, is relaxing and soothing, and calms the skin.
Aloe vera leaf extract – soothes and calms skin irritations, especially burns
Green tea extract – The polyphenols in green tea possess potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties, and show significant promise for improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
My skin is feeling pretty normal today. There is the usual redness and slight dehydration. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I caught a light and sweet fragrance. I normally do not like the smell of artificial fragrances, but this one was very pleasant and likable.
Essence was clear and had a runny gel consistency. It felt more like an ampoule than essence. It also had tiny gold flecks suspended in it.
The black mask had the prettiest floral print in gold foil. It felt soft and thin but did not come with a backing. The eco-friendly paper packaging is made of Han-Ji (Korean traditional paper).
Fit was good to great! It was surprising because it did not have any slits to adjust for fit, but it was soft enough to manipulate. The overall sheet size was on the small side and only covered the inner perimeter of my face.
Adherence seemed good to great too! I said “seemed” because the mask was opaque so it was hard to spot for lift and air bubbles. I could only judge it based on how clingy it felt on my skin. It did great and did not budge one bit.
I took the mask off after 30 mins, it was slightly damp.
The leftover essence took some patting to dry down a little. Finish was dewy and felt slightly tacky.
My skin felt very hydrated and moderately moisturized. This felt perfect on my combo skin in the winter, I didn’t require a moisturizer. I think this will do great on oily skin in the winter and dry skin all year round.
The greatest improvement was to the plumpness of my skin. So much so that my pores looked smaller and my fine lines disappeared. My skin felt bouncy and chock full of water.
Brightening and calming effects were slight to moderate.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I had alot of fun using this mask mainly due to how pretty it was. The peptides did a great job of plumping my skin but the calming effects of the botanical extracts were not coming through. I’d get the mask for a fun occasion. Check out more NOHJ reviews here.
