COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

Several blogs mentioned that COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is one of the two popular masks from the brand. I also know some ladies who looked for it, which made me think it must be good. So, I wanted it too. 😀 It was also the right time to test if moisture-bombing my face would help with oil-control.

The COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask can be a sleeping pack, wash-off pack, and moist cream. It contains 85% propolis that is a mix of saliva and beeswax produced by honeybees as a “precautionary measure to keep out dangerous microbes and fungi*” from their hive.

The mask is for all skin types; recommended for those with dehydrated (and oily) skin and redness. It’s scentless, which is a relief because I’m not a fan of the honey smell.

What’s left in my tub since the other day 😛


There’s 50g in this small tub, which I find too few/small for its cost. I haven’t even reached 5 uses and I could already see the bottom of the tub.

Usage


Whenever I find my skin dehydrated and dull-looking, I would use this mask. I store this in the fridge because it feels more awesome on the skin when it’s cold.

As the last step in my skin care routine, I let my moisturizer sink in first for a few minutes before I mask then I rinse it off in the morning. For the curious, I do get some of it on my pillowcase. It doesn’t leave any stain, so it’s cool.

Verdict


The Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask does reduce dryness in some areas of my face and I notice that it lessens sebum production. Yet, I’m overall dissatisfied.

  • My face still feels it lacks moisture even with a thick layer on overnight.

  • Soothes and does remove redness, but still unlike or not even better than the other soothing mask I use.

  • Dull-looking skin still looks dull in the morning. 😐

  • If I happen to like the mask, it could get expensive in the long run because I might end up repurchasing often from frequent use.



It’s meh. I just don’t want to let this go to waste that’s why I still use it. There are many who likes this mask though, so I hope my review won’t keep you from trying it.
