A lot of the cosmetics stores in Korea entice you to enter by handing out free masks. I was thus enticed into the Skin79 store by a lovely lady handing out these Red Ginseng Repairing Masks Sheets.
These sheet masks are made of pure cotton and contain red ginseng. The mask is stated to "protect skin from external environment and keep inelastic skin smooth. Portulaca Oleracea Extract regenerates healthy skin appearance, giving elasticity to skin." You are suppose to use this after toning your face for 10-15 mins. After removal, you should gently pat the remaining serum for absorption.
There is an obvious ginseng scent when you open the package, which I enjoy. The mask doesn't come with a backing when removed from the packet. I actually like it when masks come with a backing since it makes it easier to peel the two sides of the mask apart. The fit is good but the forehead portion is a little short and the opening slits for the eyes are larger than normal.
The sheet is very drenched in serum and the cotton is quite thick. The gel is very smooth and upon removal of the mask there isn't much tackiness. The serum seemed to absorb quickly. Overall this mask was a pleasant experience. I actually didn't know that Skin79 produced masks since I mostly hear about their BB creams, but this mask was a nice introduction to their line. As fair as repairing goes, it looks like the ingredients are more geared towards skin elasticity issues. The mask is categorized as "firming and revitalizing."
Daily Zen: Have you seen this?!?! I usually try to not indulge in how 'beautiful' public/blog figures are. I figure, everyone's beautiful so why should these people get more attention then the rest (aside from the fact that they have more public forums to display their beauty, and of course, I'm not discounting my part in that culture as well) but Nicole Warne...wow.
