B2Link Haul

Received a package recently from kbeauty curator, B2Link that included such brands as Wish Formula, Troiareuke, Common Labs and Skin1004.

B2Link is a curator of Korean skin care and ships worldwide currently from their Amazon storefront. They offer competitive prices and have links to some fabulous up and coming Korean brands while continuing to expand the variety of brands and products they offer.

 

Common Labs Vitamin B mask and vitamin C mask were up first for review. Something else I really like about these masks are that they include and exfoliating finger pad attached to the masks in a small pouch at the top. I love this because I think it makes masking so much more effective and easier I’d like to see more Brands offer something like this.

The first thing I noticed about these masks were that the essence inside was quite thick. Possibly the thickest essence of any masks I have ever used almost a Vaseline gel type texture. With this extreme thickness there were no issues in getting the masks to stay in place. The masks each stayed moist while sticking perfectly in place for the allotted time.

Of each of these masks I personally liked the vitamin B more Because I was able to leave the essence on my skin without rinsing it off, something that I am not usually able to do with most masks even though they state it on the directions.

The vitamin C mask left my skin slightly sticky a feeling that I’m not very comfortable with so I definitely left it on for as long as I could and rinsed it off. Later I switched to using it for a night time masking experience where the slight stickiness doesn’t bother me. The fit of each mask was quite good and adhered well with the essence. I only wish the forehead was a bit bigger but I completely realize I have a “5 head”.

I would definitely repurchase these since they performed well on my drier than average skin type and I wasn’t constantly having to re-adjust them like some other masks.

 Vitamin C Mask Description:

“Recommended for: Dull and discolored skin
Customers who feel sheet masks don’t work for them – Putting a sheet mask on a layer of dead skin only does harm. That’s why we offer a finger pad to get rid of dead skin so that nutrients from the sheet mask can sink deep into your skin.

Which ingredients will help my skin?
Vitamin C – Brightens skins and minimizes fine lines, also improves discoloration and helps create collagen
Honey and Propolis – Provides intense hydration. Propolis contains Flavonoid which is a natural anti-aging ingredient that helps to prevents vitamin destruction
AHA: Natural acid derived from fruits such as oranges and lemons. Smoothes fine lines and improves overall skin condition. Adjusts pH levels and exfoliates skin.”

The C2000 Bubble Peeling Pad from Wish Formula is definitely intense and again a product that comes packaged individually so that if you like you can gift to friends and family easily. Inside the package are 4 individual batches of the liquid formula each with their own scrubbing pad. Simply poor the pouches contents on to the scrubbing pad and work into your skin for about a minute and rinse. I tried this a few times and each time felt a slight tingle and sting but I didn’t mind because I figured it was working properly as a stronger vitamin C formula. The slight tingling aside the pad was gentle and the results were perfection.  I was left with glowing, clearer skin that felt moisturized and supple to the touch. I definitely felt it did its job to reveal newer, fresher skin and exfoliate the dead skin cells.

🚩My one problem with this product is that I would love to have a bigger quantity of packets. After my first use of a packet, it seemed a lot of the fluid was wasted and could easily be put to use a second time. The next two times I tried packets I only used half and then securely sealed the rest of the liquid with a Bobby pin or two and placed it in the refrigerator. I was delighted to find that the solution was just as powerful a few days later so it did not seem to oxidize at all and stayed air tight. I got two uses out of one packet for a total of 8 uses per box!

Features:

  • “MULTICARE BUBBLE PEELING PAD: the superfine fiber pad consists of two sides. Exfoliating side effectively removes dead skin and impurities. Softer side effectively pats in the active ingredients to the skin.
  • FERMENTED PEELING SOLUTION infused a PEELING PAD: fermented peeling solution is soaked in the peeling pad which automatically bubbles up to remove dead skin cells and impurities. Our patented peeling solution consists of pure vitamin C and plant derived extracts for clear and radiant complexion.
  • VITAMIN C: works as an antioxidant to brighten and rejuvenate skin, and improve healing process of the skin”

  • “SMART FACIAL CLEANSER: tightens pores and exfoliates dead skin, while taking care of blackheads & pores, leading to cleaner and smoother skin
  • SILK COCOON: includes proteins that stick to pores to rid the skin of any impurities, while argan oil and centella asiatica components offer nutrients and protection for the skin”

I’m not usually one for facial soaps but the ingrediants were intriguing for this Skin1004 Cocoon Facial Soap Bar. I used my Korean shower scrub cloth to add a little more exfoliating power to this product and I was pleasantly surprised. Though it was not as moisturizing as some of my usual cleansing routines I did still find that my skin was soft to the touch and felt fairly balanced after using this product. I do think that this would be better suited to someone with an oily skin type. My boyfriend actually took a liking to this product and since he has predominently oily skin, he has loved it and uses it himself for quick cleansing in the shower.

Wish Formulas I’M PRO AMPOULE PAD Has been one of my all time favorite K beauty skin care finds. I absolutely love the formula! It performs better than any other vitamin C ample I have used. The effect is immediate lightning and a softening of the skin that few other products are able to deliver in my experience. This was the 1st product from Wish Formula I tried and I was blown away I absolutely love this item I only wish that more pads came in each pack! I would much rather this product came packaged similar their Day 365 All In One Ampoule Pad which contains 28 pads rather than these 10 individually packaged pads. I do of course understand that the main ingredient in this product is the vitamin C which is much more sensitive to air and light of course then other ingredients but still. I absolutely love everything about this product I only wish it came in a bigger quantity.

I’M PRO AMPOULE PAD C description:

“Vitamin C 10% concentration:
Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that has anti-aging benefits to help even out skin tone and rejuvenate the skin.
Plant Ferment Extract: Fermentation is a natural process which creates beneficial enzymes such as amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. Such enzymes improve fine lines and skin discoloration.
Contains extract from peppermint, rice, celery, and cabbage.”

The Zombie Pack from a Skin1004 has gotten a lot of attention lately and was something I was definitely eager to try. It is intended for tightening pores and lifting the skin, something which I definitely liked the sound of. However, I found that the tightening effect of the mask made my skin feel as if it was being pulled, not a sensation I am comfortable with. Towards the completion of its drying time, my skin had became itchy and felt quite dry, again something that I didn’t really find very pleasing about this mask. After washing off the mask I definitely felt like my skin was smoother, softer, and pores looked visibly smaller. For me, a person with predominantly dry skin, I think this might be something I would reserve for just once or twice a month. For those with oily skin, perhaps they could use it once a week. Since this masks activator and powder mix are packaged separately,  this is an ideal product to divvy up between friends and family for a unique Kbeauty masking experience!

Zombie Mask Pack description:

  • “There are line markings on the activator bottle. Use one marking of activator to mix with each powder.
  • Powder to liquid facial mask that tightens the pore and enhances elasticity level
  • The mask will moisturize the dry area, while reducing oil for T zone
  • Egg white component, Albumin as well as aloe vera extract sinks deep into skin, offering intense hydration and instant lifting effect.”

 

I live in good old Seoul, South Korea right in the epicenter of K beauty in all its glory! If there is anything you would like to see me try, feel free to let me know in the comments below 😉

   !!!Happy Sheet Masking!!!
