The Sample Store: Faith in Face Assorted Mask [Sponsored Review]

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry if I haven't been writing as much.
It's the festive season, and that means it's the peak period for me at work (= less sleep)...
which is why these days, I'm looking for products that can help me look less zombie-like.

I've been giving a range of masks from Faith In Face a test and it's been an interesting experience!

What is Faith In Face?

Faith in Face launched in 2012 by a multi-national team of young cosmetic experts from Korea, Britain and Canada after 3 years of research and development, and is now the Number 1 Hydrogel Mask Brand in Korea. 


What makes Faith In Face Masks different from other masks?


Faith in Face uses only organic and naturally derived extracts, such as vegetable collagen, essential oils, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid in their products. Specially formulated to be gentle on the skin while reducing the chances of allergic reactions, Faith In Face products are free of parabens and mineral oils, on top of being animal-friendly (no animal testing done).

Unlike regular microfiber and cotton sheet masks, Faith in Face’s hydrogel masks contain a high percentage of water soluble ingredients to deliver maximal hydration and superior skin rejuvenation. With a gentle formula that is suitable for sensitive skin, the hydrogel masks are also able to cool the skin, thanks to beta-glucans which rejuvenate stressed out skin.

Which masks did I test out?

Nourish Me



Nourish Me's special formulation of Ceramide 3 with Broccoli Extract and Olive Oil provides the ultimate nourishment for your skin. Ceramide 3 plays an important role in generating a protective layer for your skin and is one of the most important lipid composition of stratum corneum. Broccoli Extract contains Vitamins C, E & beta carotene which promotes maintenance of healthy skin and prevents UV damage while Olive Oil moisturizes and strengthens your skin. 

After Shower


Love the feeling of your fresh, moist and glowing skin right after a shower? AFTER SHOWER LOOK is here to give you that! A soothing and moisturizing mask, it contains the natural moisturizing ingredient, Sodium PCA that helps supply moisture to your skin. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid which has intense hydration and moisture retention capabilities. Lastly, Camelia Oil is present to lock the moisture into your skin and helps to soothe your skin.

Black & White



Want to achieve Audrey Hepburn’s beautifully flawless and luminous skin? You can also be your own film star with BLACK AND WHITE FILM STAR hydrogel mask! BLACK AND WHITE FLIM Star is a brightening mask that contains Arbutin and Niacinamide, a water soluble vitamin that has anti-ageing effects that improves and lightens your skin tone. It also contains Citrus Unshiu Pericarp extract that has excellent anti-oxidant effects and Green Tea extract which contains Vitamin C, Tocopherols and Polypenols that brighthen your skin!

How to use?

After cleansing, carefully remove the thinner protective film from both the top and bottom masks to expose the smooth surface, and apply the smooth side of the masks to your face. To ensure that I placed the right side (smooth surface) onto my skin, I press my fingernail into one side. If it creates a 'cut', it's the right side.

After 30 minutes, remove the mask and discard. Gently pat your face with fingertips to help the skin absorb the remaining essence.

Note: The mask has a smooth surface and textured surface. Applying the textured side on the face is the wrong side of the mask, and it may cause discomfort. If so, just peel the mask off and switch over to the smooth side.

VERDICT

Texture: Like jelly with a mesh cloth holding it together, highly saturated with essence. All 3 masks have the same texture.

Scent: Nourish Me smells sweet, where as Black & White and After Shower has the same smell as usual sheet mask... I don't really know how to explain this scent... and that's all I can smell with my flu. Sorry!

I've got to say that I'm loving the texture of this mask, it comes in 2 pieces that helps to make it proportionately suitable for most face shape! Unlike facial sheet masks, there is no dripping of essence despite how saturated it is and it grabs onto my skin tightly (even better than a sheet one does).

My skin felt completely hydrated and smooth after use, but I didn't quite like how sticky the essence feels on my skin after, so I washed it off and completed my skincare routine with a moisturizer.

Besides the obvious hydrating boost, the only mask that left me impressed was the Black & White Film Star mask. I saw a slight brightening/lightening effect after 1 use the morning after, but I can't determine if it was entirely because of the mask or simply because I was getting my 8 hour rest...

Lastly, the other thing that left me wondering is the ingredients, it claims that it uses organic ingredients but it is not certified. I guess you can take it with a pinch of salt because certification is costly and I rather know that the cost of the mask is kept affordable without a certification than it being costly for that stamp of approval.
