So I've been told that only cleanse and moisture your face not enough. You need to tone, scrub, exfoliate and more over mask them. I once was a user of Erha Clinic, and the aesthetics doctor said I don't need toner because my skin is sensitive. So I have never used toner ever since, which I found convenient, because I want simple steps in my rush morning skincare haha!
Scrub and exfoliate are not really my thing, because some product that I have been tried just disappoint me. They broke me out, I guess I am not lucky to find the one.
Then, I know my safest option, is only to mask my face. So I googled here and there. And found Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask. I bought in mini size, 50ml for idr 150,000, so there was quite a steal, right, for Korean high end brand.
The instruction is different from other mask I know. It tells to cleanse your face, put some moisturiser, or even a serum, then apply the mask, wait for 20 minutes, peel them off, and you are good (no need to wash your face! Thank you for the simplicity Sulwhasoo!). I found it odd, but I gotta do what the instruction said, right.
And then, I know this is the one! This is the mask that REALLY works on me. Why? That would be because of the instant result I got. One day I had this big itchy pimple right on my forehead and I applied the mask, waited 20 minutes, peeled it off, then off to bed. The next morning, I found the mask dried up the pimple and made it less red without looking over exfoliate (If you know what I mean, it doesn't look like you put strong acne gel that will leave your skin bad dry patches). This mask is so mild on my skin, yet so effective. How can a product be like this? W O W.
Another day, I had a really bad dry skin, like dry patches all over my eyebrow area and my cheeks. You know I really love trying new product, this time is Dr. Bronner magic soap, which is definitely not doing some magic on me, but leaving my skin so dry. And then I applied my own magic mask. The next morning I woke up with better skin, dry patches around my eyebrows and cheeks were gone. My Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask was truly the rescue. I use it once every week or two weeks. Or whenever I feel my skin acts up.
This is what I call magic:
