Hi yummie seaweed!!
Know why you are my “seaweed” today? Because I’m about to share my newfound treasure with you guys! *Nods* Yes that’s how much I ❤ you! In my opinion, this is even better than the famous Laneige Water Sleeping Pack, or the Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion that I previously reviewed (see post here!) Honestly, no one has told me to review this, I just merely saw it while browsing UNIQSO (while doing their other reviews) and just happen to come across this and thought, meh, I’d give it a try. I wasn’t even obligated to review this omg. But it surprised me soooo much!
The magic baby: SKIN79 Seaweed Cooling Mask
It’s a tub of goodness. Ok it’s a tub of gel-like mask that you can apply with the spoon provided. The instructions say to apply it on cleansed skin, then wait for 20 minutes and rinse off. I say screw the instructions. (Read on to find out)
The color is sooooo pretty. Kinda similar to the Laneige sleeping pack, but more vibrant. bluer. And it smells soooo good! (it doesn’t smell like seaweed at all, more like a refreshing marine scent) A little goes a long way. All you need is a pea-sized amount to cover your entire face!
The consistency is a gel liquid, and even though it’s slightly blue when you take it out, it slowly turns clear and gets absorbed into your skin when you blend it out. It even has a cooling effect so it’ll be perfect for hot humid summer days!
After blending it out, it turns into a liquidy texture that’s quickly absorbed into my skin. No sticky feeling afterwards, no residues, and the best part?
I ignored the instructions and totally left it on overnight …
WHEN I WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING MY SKIN WAS SO PLUMP AND MOISTURIZED LIKE A BOILED EGG.
Peeled of course.
I was wondering why there are semi-negative reviews of this online. It turned out people were saying that when they rinsed off the mask, their skin didn’t feel replenished at all. I cannot comment on this because I havn’t tried rinsing it off, it felt totally like a night time moisturizer gel / sleeping mask to me, with no tight feeling that usual rinse-off masks produce.
My suggestion is to screw the instructions, and leave it on overnight.
If you trust me, you may wake up with the smoothest skin ever. It felt 100x better than the water sleeping pack! Maybe it’s my skin getting too used to the Water sleeping pack, but ever since I had discovered the magic of the Seaweed mask, I’ve been substituting it for my usual night time moisturizer, and my skin has never felt better.
*Please don’t kill me if it doesn’t work for you – maybe my skin’s chemistry totally matches that of the seaweed mask and they produce wonderful results.. but I sincerely suggest you to try it!*
