Back with another Korean Face Mask review :). Since I loved Too Cool For School’s Egg Mask so much, I decided to try another face mask from their Pumpkin line, the 24K Gold Pumpkin Face Mask.
However, this review is going to be a little different because I wasn’t too impressed with this product…
First I want to share some facts about this mask:
The benefits sound good right?! It has ingredients that would entice anyone, but I just wasn’t feeling it, let’s go into why.
Per usual 🙂 I will use my reliable Facemask Quality Indicator (FQI) to rate this mask.
Smell: It doesn’t smell like anything which surprised me. I thought it would smell like pumpkin, but it smells like chemicals 헐…
Application: It was quite tricky to get on. With bare-skin masks, the protective mesh (usually) automatically peels itself off when you apply it to your face, but it wasn’t sticking to my face at all. Once I was able to pull the mask away from the mesh, it was easy to get on.
The Feels: It stung a little but faded within a few minutes.
Post Removal: My face felt hydrated and looked much brighter in my T-zone area, but I did break out after removing the mask, and I also broke out the next morning :(.
Expectations: I was a little surprised by the results. I’ve used Too Cool For School products before and haven’t had any skin issues. I thought maybe it was the pumpkin but, I’ve been using their Pumpkin Sleeping Pack for weeks and the results have been amaze! Overall, it left my face feeling smooth and hydrated, but it just didn’t agree with my skin.
Price: This mask is 5,000won, which is typical for a gold mask so the price doesn’t shock me, but since the results weren’t that great, I won’t be repurchasing this one.
Rating: I’ll give this mask a 3.5/5 because it did what the mask is intended to do, but it wasn’t a good mask for my skin.
If you’re ever shopping at Too Cool For School, I highly recommend purchasing the Pumpkin Sleeping Pack over the 24K Pumpkin Mask. After using the night cream, my skin always feels so revitalized in the morning. I wish the mask has the same effects. Like I’ve said before, everyone has different skin, so if you don’t break out easily, then maybe you’ll have better luck with the Pumpkin mask.
