Hey Wish Trenders! It’s me Eunice!
Let me ask you a question. How many different kinds of facial mask packs do you know? As you guys all know, there are so many different mask packs in Korea with different effects. There is mask sheets that you can use daily, wash off type that you can rinse with water, modelling pack which is also called rubber pack, sleeping pack which you just put it on and go to bed, partial care mask that you put on the parts of the face that you want to focus on and the list goes on! I wanted to introduce you all the different facial mask packs in Korea and the different types, effects, and how to’s of them! Let’s master the world of facial mask packs in Korea today!
First, Wash Off Mask Pack If you have dry skin, it’s good to use was off mask pack. Wash off mask is good for moisturizing, nourishing, and also for pore tightening and exfoliating.
- [I’M FROM] Honey Mask (Real Honey 38.7% Inside !) Currently being sold out every year in Korea, it’s “THE” mask of honey. Personally, one of my favorite packs these days. It’s no problem for sensitive skin. It has 40% of real honey in it which is great for giving rich nourishment to your skin. It’s also a must have pack for exfoliating and moisturizing.
How to: After cleansing, put it on your face and leave it for 20 minutes to an hour and rinse off with water(Make sure you rinse well or you’ll have a goldish honey tone on your face).
- [O’SUM] Aloe Vera Multicare Soothing Patch
After you use this patch, it forms a thin protective layer of your skin so that it can protect your skin from any irritation from outside. Especially these days, there’s so much yellow dust in Korea so when there’s warning of large amounts of yellow dust on the news, I usually use this pack before I go out and it protects my sensitive skin. Thanks to the pack, my face stings less and doesn’t turn so much red. It also has 6000 times more moisturizing amount and it’s also known for giving elasticity. How to: Put a thick layer of the pack on the part of the face you want to calm, then leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse off with water.
2) Wash off mask packs that takes care of both tightening your pores, exfoliating and moisturizing.
This pack is for special pore care to get all the waste out of your pres and to tighten them! It has Gracial Clay and Oatmeal in it to help your skin to become smooth and as soft as a baby’s butt! How to: After putting it on your face, leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse off with water. If you have oily skin, I want to recommend that you use it 2-3 times a week and if you have dry skin, I recommend you 1-2 times a week.
- [ROJUKISS] Pore Tightening Pack (Upgrade) This pack is for pore care also. It goes on your skin very smoothly, feeling a little bit differently from any other pore masks I’ve tried. The pack dries really fast and you can actually feel the pack tightening your pores. How to: After you open your pores with warm water, put it on your face but avoid the eye and lip area. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse off with water.
Second, Modeling Mask It’s usually used before or after treatments at skin care clinic and dermatology to calm and moisturize your skin. Since it is for professional use, it is a little bit more difficult to use than other mask packs but it’s calming and moisturizing effect is outstanding! How to: It’s a peel-off mask pack so after putting it on your face, peel-off from the bottom to the top.
There are 3 different masks for you. There is the Collagen mask that is great for anti-aging. Second one is Charcoal mask for pore care and the last one is the Vitamin C mask for brightening. How to: In a small bowl, put in the powder of the modeling mask and clean water in the ratio of 3:2 and mix well. When the texture becomes thick, then before it dries, put it on your face. Put it on for 20 minutes and take it off from the bottom to the top(if it’s watery, it can start dripping down your neck and hair, if that happens don’t panic, just simply get some tissue and put it around your face line so it wont drip down). After taking it off, put toner on a cotton ball and wipe off any left over masks on your face. It is a bit difficult to use because it’s for professionals but trust me, after you try it once, you’ll get the hang of it and the effect of the mask if so worth it!
It’s the most popular mask in Korea because it’s so easy to use and in such a short time you can get an awesome effect. There are countless different kinds for anti-aging, moisturizing, troubled skin, whitening, and the list goes on! Depending on your skin type or the condition of your skin you can choose the perfect one and use it! How to is so simply as I mentioned before, after cleansing, put on toner or skin and put on the mask sheet. Some of my most popular ones are [KLAIRS] Rich Moist Soothing Mask, [ROJUKISS] Pure Vita C Dual Mask, and [ELISHACOY] Snail Hydrogel Mask There are so many different mask sheets so I will introduce them all to you next time in detail, I promise!
