I am so ecstatic to sample SkinFood's Ginseng Mask! I love ginseng, its properties of making one feel rejuvenated, and I especially love ginseng in Korean ginseng soup. According to SkinFood's website, this mask is meant to give you a "pure, luminous complexion" because of its main ingredient, ginseng, from Geumsan County, the largest ginseng market in South Korea.
- The scent is a mild, bitter ginseng smell, which is amazing for avid ginseng lovers like myself.
- The texture is very soft and gentle, which seems great for sensitive skin.
- Honestly, my face looked and felt the same after rinsing off this mask.
- The mask leaves a very thin layer on your face, so you need to use a lot of product in order to really feel the mask working at your skin.
Black Sugar Mask
I'm not so thrilled about the idea of putting sticky, goopy sugar on my face (I hate sticky substances getting on my hair), but I decided to give this mask a shot anyways. I suppose hard sugar would exfoliate skin, which is a plus. According to Skinfood's website, indeed this mask does exfoliate dead skin, as well as "revitalizes skin," brightening the complexion, I suppose.
- The scent is quite pleasing, like a mild coca cola.
- My face and hands are very smooth and polished afterwards (but not soft).
- The mask exfoliates my skin really well.
- The product is very rough, especially when massaging all over my face.
