Once, I read a comparative review of the Missha MISA Cho Gong Jin Peel Off Pack and a similar product by Sulwhasoo. Well, Sulwhasoo is quite expensive, and Missha actually was rated better in the review, so I ordered it (available on* eBay and Amazon).
I’m 28 and have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry-to-normal cheeks. I don’t typically have breakouts.
This peeling mask is recommended if you:
Have dead skin buildup that prevents even makeup application
Want to remove impurities
Want to soothe red, irritated skin (this is what the manufacturer says, but I personally would not apply this to irritated skin).
The mask comes in a form of a thick, deeply colored gel and contains oriental medicinal ingredients and honey to get rid of impurities and soothe the skin. It has a pronounced lifting effect and helps even out the skin tone.
How to use:
After cleansing and toning, apply a thick, even layer of the product avoiding the areas around the mouth and eyes.
Let dry for 20-30 minutes, then carefully peel off
Remove any residue with a cotton pad soaked in toner
Continue with your normal routine (serum, emulsion, cream, etc).
If the mask is hard to peel off, that means you need a thicker layer. Don’t be stingy. I have used it on the whole face, but lately I prefer to apply it only to the t-zone. It’s not always too comfortable to remove from the sensitive areas next to the ears, for example (but it’s not painful). The t-zone removal is fast and easy.
You will forget about any discomfort as soon as you see the results. The skin is absolutely amazing after the peel. I’ve never had such smoothness, even after a professional salon facial. This effect lasts several days.
The mask smells quite strongly of ginseng. I find it interesting and “exotic”, while my husband laughs that he can smell it across the house. Oh well, beauty demands sacrifices. Overall, I highly recommend this mask. It’s available on eBay and Amazon.
