[Review] Naruko Masks

Friday, 3 April 2015

For those who followed my blog since years ago, Naruko is not a new brand on this blog! I've reviewed some of products on this blog before and this time they sent me 4 boxes of their newly launched masks - HA Hydro-Lock Moisturizing Mask, Arbutin Intense Brightening Mask, Snail Essence Intense Hydra Repair Mask, and Collagen Booster Firming Mask!

Just look at how cute the packagings are! I think the cutest is the brightening one hahas. Anyway, each box contains 10 masks!

My Review:
Haven't tried these masks long enough to know if they really help in brightening and anti-ageing but all 4 masks are really hydrating. These masks hydrated my skin overnight and they helped control my oily skin! Those with oily skin will definitely know this, you wash your face at night, apply your moisturizer but still wake up with mad oily skin especially around the T-zone, right? But on the nights I used these masks, I woke up with a less oily face! On top of that, most of these masks are non-sticky and the products get absorbed into the skin rather quickly. One thing to note when using these masks is that you have to be really careful with them though. They are really thin so they are really comfortable when applied but it's also because of that the masks tear rather easily. Nonetheless, additional plus points for these masks as they have cute packagings and smells nice too ;)

Pros:
:: Hydrating
:: Controls oil secretion
:: Nice smelling
:: Cute packaging
:: Thin and comfortable
:: Non-sticky
:: Absorbs rather quickly

Cons:
:: Tears easily

Note: Snail Essence Intense Hydra Mask feels sticky when used. But it gets absorbed by the skin after awhile, leaving smooth and non-sticky skin! My favorites are the HA Hydro-lock and Collagen Booster as they are not sticky at all, gets absorbed by the skin very quickly and controls my oily skin!

These masks retail at $19.90 per box but... Naruko is currently having an introductory offer for these masks! Get 2 boxes now at only $29.90 on naruko.sg or at any Guardian outlets ;) Promotion ends on 20th May 2015.
