Good morning everyone. Remember I bought 2 facial masks from Sulwhasoo in April, during my birthday trip to Hong Kong? Well, I think I am ready to deliver some thoughts about them. First, I have the Sulwhasoo Skin Clarifying Mask for you. Write up for the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment will come later this week.
The Sulwhasoo Skin Clarifying Mask is a peel-off mask that purifies and clarifies dull, devitalized and problem skin. It comes in a tube which contains 150ml of product and it retails at HKD300, approximately S$50.
According to the website, it’s formulated with traditional Korean medicinal herbs such as Small Solomonseal Powder, Honey and Japanese Honeysuckle. These ingredients will replenish nourishment to our skin’s texture and brighten up our skin tone. And this unique textured peel-off mask also effectively removes impurities and dead skin cells to promote clearer and smoother looking skin.
The texture and consistency is very much like honey, even its colour. It has a very light scent of herbs – barely noticeable even with the mask on and around the nose.
This mask is said to be so gentle to our skin, it can be used more than 3 times a week but I don’t always remember and have the time so I do it either weekly or fortnightly. I will do a post with all the masks I have and how I combine them in a week or two.
I like how the Sulwhasoo Skin Clarifying Mask doubles up as an exfoliator. It works well, I didn’t have to use a facial scrub prior to using this mask, it gives a similar result.
I apply on dry, clean skin with my fingers. It spreads easily and evenly with fingers than with a brush. I apply a generous layer over my entire face in sections, from forehead to chin and avoid the eye and lip area. After approximately 20-30 minutes, when the mask is dried, peel off from top to bottom.
If you are in a rush or what happens if parts of the mask is still wet after peeling off? You can either use a tissue paper to dab on the area or a warm towel to wipe off. I also notice something about using peel-off masks, try not to sweat as the mask will not adhere to the skin nicely if sweat comes between the skin and the mask. The result will not be so significant if that happens.
The Sulwhasoo Skin Clarifying Mask is probably one of my favourite peel-off masks because it does its job well. After the mask, my skin feels cleaner, smoother and brighter. It makes my skin feels more supple too.
Have you tried this mask before and do you use peel-off masks?
Thank you for reading.
