Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel

120 mL, 20000-25000 won

I got a sample to try and didn't get the full size.

Ingredients include extracts from blueberries, raspberries, wolfberries, cranberries and strawberry which deliver abundant nutrition and anti-oxidants to protect your face from harmful free radicals

This product replaced the Strawberry Yogurt Peeling.
The previous version contained bigger beads, whereas this one contains microbeads that you can hardly see... I was expecting the new version to be similar, such as having the same "eraser" peeling effect... however after scrubbing for awhile, I only see a little bit of eraser bits... 
some people say it exfoliates on a cellular level.. meaning that we aren't suppose to see it ??

The texture is like a yogurt. It's very gentle and you can rub it on your skin without irritating or drying your skin.

Another interesting thing... you are suppose to use this on wet skin and not dry! 

I do feel my skin being smoother after use... but certainly not a WOW and I wouldn't get it again...

THE FACE SHOP Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet

1000 won

I happen to pass by a subway station and THE FACE SHOP has buy 5 get 1 free + free samples.
I just randomly picked a few.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?
- an important substance in the human skin that maintains skintone, moisture and radiance
- without hyaluronic acid, your skin will face dryness, fine lines and wrinkles
- has a high ability to lock moisture, 16 times more powerful than that of collagen! 
- 1g of Hyaluronic Acid can absorb 500 cc of water
- has 500-1000 times moisture absorbing ability
- power hydrating and moisturizing ingredient
- stimulates cell renewal, smoothens and softens your skin, also good for scars and acne
- popular ingredient found in skincare

The mask sheet contains a lot of essence, is oil free and smells refreshing
There's enough essence to cover my neck.
But after 30 mins, my neck is really sticky... maybe I applied too much essence?
It does make my skin feel smooth, soft and moisturized! 
It's also good for sensitive skin or acne skin.
The packaging is quite nice, they avoided the glossy type of packaging... 
compared to the Etude House Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet, I think I like the Etude House better

However, the smell is very perfumey!!
I feel like I am applying perfume on my face?? 
Also, the cutting of the mask sheet is weird.. it seems to be too big for the average girls..

Etude House Vitamin C Sheet Mask

20g, 1000 won 

Ingredients include 20 mg Vitamin C & 200 mg lemon extract, which aids in whitening, hydration, provides anti-oxidant, brightens skin tone and brings radiance.

Using it before sleep helps get your skin ready for the repairing and renewal process.
Using it before make up helps your make up stay on your face better.

The mask contains lots of essence, quite watery, can't smell any vitamin C. 
Personally, I don't find Vitamin C quite helpful in terms of whitening...

wash and dry your face --> toner --> Apply Vitamin C mask for 15-20 mins --> lotion/ cream
*** The mask contains essence and replaces the serum ***

Benefits for Vitamin C to your skin: 
- aids in collagen production 
- reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- protects your skin against UVA/ UVB so you don't get red spots 

Vitamin C is an unstable vitamin, once it gets in contact with light or high temperature, it gets damaged. 
It is a vitamin that the human body cannot product, so we must absorb from other sources such as food, supplements and skincare.  An average adult needs ~40g Vitamin C per day, which is equal to 1 orange, 1 peach or 1 kiwi. Those who smokes need 2x as much Vitamin C as someone who doesn't smoke.
