I have been facing alot of stress at work the last 2 weeks with very depleted sleep and its really showing on my skin these days – tired, dehydrated skin and poor oil control.
My busy schedule limits my skincare regime to cleanse, tone, mask before going to bed, and I’m delighted that the nice ladies at Rachel K sent me this!!
Rachel K Radiance Illuminator Collagen + Lotus Stem Cell Hydrogel Mask
Look at the benefits!! its smthg that i really need. badly.
Did you know…
Hydrogel masks deliver 11-18% more moisture than traditional skincare sheet masks. Hydrogel melts onto your skin, reacting directly to your skin’s temperature. It effectively locks in moisture, which its Trans-Dermal Technolofy allows hydrating agents to penetrate at level twice greater than other moisturizers.
This easy-to-use mask has stem cells extracted from the lotus flower, which promotes the division of skin cells, enhancing the skin’s intrinsic ability to renew itself. its gel-like texture contours to your face leaving it soft and hydrated, while refining the fine lines and wrinkles. its cool and refreshing formula, coupled with powerful bio-cleansing abilities, remove dead skin cells, cleans, refines, and leaves skin smooth and glowing. For normal, oily, or acne-prone skin, its natural extracts work to clear out pores without irritation while its hydrating ingredients deliver oil-free moisture, ensuring that your skin is never over dried and always beautifully vibrant
You can also see from the ingredients below that there’s alot of natural goodness in this mask <3. i’ve never seen a mask with so many extracts before!!! pro!
you can also see its made in Korea! cant wait to try already.
this is my BEFORE picture:
can really see fatigue… 😦
this is a gel mask! its my 3rd time using a gel mask and YES i prefer gel mask to sheet mask. its more cooling and you can literally see the absorbtion when the mask sheet gets thinner. it more fun putting jelly on your face right?
this masks comes in 2 parts, one for the upper half of your face until the cheeks.
the lower half covers the lower cheeks, chin,and upper lip area.
the transparent colourless mask is lined to a plastic sheet which you need to peel off before placing on your face. I have some difficulty opening the mask to put on my face as the mask is so soft. but it does not tear. just be gentle when opening.
you will need to spend some time to soothe out the mask on your face.
the mask is really cooling! for the next 40 minutes i keep touching my own face cos its soft and cooling lol.
40 minutes later…
sorry i did not take a BEFORE photo of the mask sheet as my hands are covered with the essence and cant take.
the mask did become thinner, and the essence absorbed.
(i spend the next 3 min playing with the mask sheet – the material is really strong cos it doesnt tear no matter how hard i pulled =X)
YOU WANT TO SEE AFTER?
got improve? i feel that it is definitely more radiant and of cos plumped with essence haha.
maybe my pores are hopeless case so i dont feel that my pores become refined.
and what i really love is how make up glides on smoothly after that. this is me with BB cream only
throughout the day i did not blott my face at all until 6 hours later. i noticed my blotter does not have as much oil as before. =D
i am pleased with this mask and would recommend this to anyone who is troubled with dull skin.
What i like about it:
1) gel material
2) 30ml of goodness (compared to 23ml of usual sheet)
3) Research was well done in creating this mask
4) the composition/ingredients of the mask
5) skin calming and cooling effect
6) good oil control

On a not so related note, for those who do not know, Rachel K is a homegrown Singapore brand and i am proud that this brand has come this far. i rmb it seeing their make up pdts some years back and the brand has really grown over the years.
