This is a review for the Skinfood Fermented Pomegranate Whitening Sleeping Mask
I got this when I went to Korea. Blair recommended it to me. (thanks, Blair!)
What it does:
A skin-brightening sleeping mask containing arbutin and pomegranate ferment extract forms a protective layer onto skin. It provides continuous moisturization overnight and suppresses the formation of blemishes and dark spots, making skin look clear and radiant by morning.
After emulsion or essence, apply desired amount evenly onto face and gently massage to absorb.
(from the Skinfood website)
approximately 14000 Korean Won (about $11.50)
- Light enough to use in the summer and moisturizes enough that I can use it in the winter
- Not sticky
- Very light, watery texture
- Absorbs very quickly
- The packaging has a pump which is more sanitary than a jar
- I did not experience any whitening effects
- It's expensive in Japan
Would I repurchase? I would if I went to Korea!
I really liked this, and if I lived in Korea, this would probably take the place of my nightly moisturizer. I was wary of sleeping masks at first. I thought, "I slather this on my face and then go to sleep? Won't it get all over my sheets?" However, this sleeping mask gets absorbed into my skin very quickly.
Hope you liked this review!!
In related news...
Skinfood has recently opened some branches in Japan, and one of them is in Kobe! I stopped by last weekend, hoping to pick up some stuff...
In the end, I didn't buy anything since it was REALLY expensive! I was surprised! The Mushroom BB Cream, which is about 13000 Korean Won (about $11) in Korea, was $25. That's more than twice the price! I can get the same BB cream cheaper online.
