THE OOZOO Face Injection Mask Hydro Lift Review
I LOVE masking. I use sheet masks most days and typically go for budget options. But every once in a while, I get into a “I deserve it mood” and splurge. It’s still less than a cost of a fancy latte, so I guess it’s a fairly modest indulgence (especially if you compare Korean skincare prices to the European and American brands).
This time, I went for The Oozoo Face Injection Mask in the Hydro Lift variety. It is designed to hydrate and lift the skin. Speaking of design, the makers of this mask won the 2016 Future Packaging Design award and the 2017 iF World Design award. The technology is patented.
The mask comes with a two-touch “syringe” filled with an ampoule. The syringe stores two different types of agents separately. Step one is to push the dark blue button on the syringe to release the first agent. Then, the two components are mixed right in the syringe and injected into the special opening in the mask packaging. This type of storage keeps the ingredients fresh.
The Hydro Lift mask has anti-aging and hydrating properties. Storing the ingredients separately ensures their max efficacy is retained and the user gets the most benefits from them. Once mixed, the components create synergy that plumps the face with moisture and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles.
The mask material is a thick cotton that adheres superbly and doesn’t let the beneficial ingredients evaporate. The ceramide in the product softens, moisturizes, and revitalizes the skin. Adenosine is a well-known skincare ingredient that makes the skin look smoother and younger, while beta-glucan soothes the skin.
How to use:
1. Press the small button at the end of the syringe to release the agent.
2. Gently shake the syringe to combine the components.
3. Inject the contents of the syringe into the opening on the mask.
4. “Smoosh” the mask around a bit to distribute the ampoule inside.
5. Open the mask, apply to a clean face after toner.
6. Relax for 15-20 minutes and discard the mask. Follow with your regular routine.
I think I’m in love. My face was seriously glowing after using the mask. There’s a definite WOW factor with both the design and the actual results from the mask (after all, what’s the point of awesome packaging if the product itself isn’t effective?). I’m definitely buying this again, and I think it would make for some impressive stocking stuffers during the holiday season. Korean beauty nailed it again - products like these are why I love blogging.
