Getting into my HUGE haul of Wish Formula goodies! Wish Formula is a brand based around fermented extracts and natural ingredients, 2 things I love and that have been proven to be very effective in skincare.
I had already been introduced to Wish Formula’s I’M PRO AMPOULE PAD – C & C200 Bubble Peeling Pads in a previous haul. Already being very pleased with the 2 previous initial products I was eager to see what else they had to offer!
So to start off with I have to talk about their Panda Eye Essence Mask! You can probably already tell from the “!” I loved this product. The pads are soaked in highly concentrated vitamin C 10% along with vitamin E and several fermented ingredients such as honey, mistletoe, bacillus, and licorice just to name a few. Promises a brightening effect under the eyes as well as wrinkle care.
These really performed and my delicate undereye skin felt amazing afterward! Plumped, nourished, definitely a brightening of the under eye area.
🚩Only problem with these is the fact that they dried out quicker than I’d like. I have the habit of putting on masks/eye patches and taking a nap. I’d like to see a little modification in material or design.
Centella Honey Fermented Mask
The Mask With Centella Honey Fermented Serum and The Mask With Snail Milk Mucus(might want to shorten those names 🙃). So first impressions of the mask I absolutely love the packaging it looks different than so many other brands. It has this quaint almost vintage style illustration on the front that’s so cute and brings to mind something from late seventies. Reminds me of The Dark Crystal film, making all the little creepy crawly gooey strange creatures ever so cute.
First impression unfortunately this was not a good fit as far as masks go. It just had an awkward shape that seemed to be better fitted to a very wide and small face compared to mine. I had a lot of extra material going off on to the sides of my face into my hairline while my forehead had at least an inch uncovered…keep in mind I do have a “5” head. Now then the material of the mask also unfortunately was not my favorite. It was a bit thick and stiff for my general mask preferences. Because of the hard stiff nature of the Mask and already the design being completely different than my own face I had a terrible time trying to get this mask in place. The essence or serum of this mask was more watery than most masks I’ve tried that tend to have a gooey or slimy texture. This masks serum Essence was almost the consistency of water💦. That being said, once I got the mask as close as I could in place that watery serum got into my right eye and I had to take the time to dab the area and wash my eye out with water. I had to be very careful with this mask not to get any more serum in my eye and have another mishap. Plus the mask just kept slinking down my face and really not adhering well. HOWEVER…
The essence itself seems to work amazingly I absolutely loved it! Though it had a very watery consistency it seemed to get sucked right up into my skin and felt very comforting. I usually leave masks on for longer than the recommended 10 to 20 minutes because I like to really relax and let as much as possible soak into my skin. Once I removed the mask after about 25 minutes I was really pleased with the feel of my skin it was noticeably brighter and felt plump and extremely soft. Also this watery serum essence was one of the few that I could actually leave on my skin without rinsing off. I had no breakouts or irritation issues whatsoever and it did not leave any sort of sticky residue.
🚩 For me this mask was a 50/50 since it really has some points of design that need improvement.
as usual the ingredients were amazing and perfectly did their job. I would definitely repurchase this mask because I was just that pleased with the serum essence and ingredients. I do hope however that their mask design improves as well as the material they chose. It just wasn’t the level of material it should have been to compliment the fabulous ingredients and results of this product.

SNAIL MILK LOTION MASK
As for the mask with snail milk lotion mask I also was a bit disappointed. I love the packaging of both these masks and I also love the ingredients list except for one on this particular mask perfume. And that was my major issue with this mask the overwhelming smell of artificial flowers. As soon as I opened the package it really turned me off as I’m a bit sensitive to artificial smells. Don’t get me wrong I love strong smells from things like a central oils or things with a very earthy or spicy scent. But 1 thing I really dislike about a lot of Korea and cosmetics and skin care is that they are still using strong floral perfumes. I understand that sometimes assent to mask undesirable smells from some of the ingredients is necessary. But I would rather it be a cent more like lemongrass, bergamot, sandal wood, or something of the like. This mask also was made of a thicker material that was difficult to it here to my skin very well, on the stiff side. I usually prefer my masks to be very thin so that they are able to contour at here to all the contours of my face with the strength of the essence they’re soaked in period with this material being so sick it was just a bit too difficult to keep it down around my nose and all of the important areas to feel like it could have time to really soak in and penetrate.
🚩The essence itself I really liked but again this one was also on the watery side but definitely a little thicker than the centella mask. The over all results were nice and this is one of those masks that I don’t need to rinse off the essence after I’ve used it. It caused no breakouts left no stickiness or irritation and absorbed completely into my skin so at least in that effect I was quite happy.

THE BAT EYE MASK
What is the ultra cute bat eye mask was definitely something I was excited to try if for no other reason than that it would be a perfect gift to friends and family back home. The ingredients of The Masks essence looked fabulous and it was really easy to apply and was a great fit around my nose and eye area so I was really pleased with that. The mask is intended for brightening and moisturizing and it certainly does a decent job of that. However the shape of the mask pack itself made it difficult to get all the essence out because it would fall into the tip of the wings and for someone who likes to get every last drop of essence to apply to their neck and decolletage it’s a little bit of a hassle. Also though I love the texture of the mask and its ultra soft and fits great it dries out a little quickly for my taste.
🚩The essence in this mask is my favorite of the Wish Formula masks and I would much rather this mask be offered in a FULL SIZE and not just the cute kitschy bat shape. It really is a great essence and deserves a full mask size I think. I feel like this would be a great stocking stuffer this year 4 those who want to try a little fun sample of K Beauty but don’t know where to start.

I’M PRO AMPOULE PAD -M
Like I’M PRO AMPOULE PAD -C , these pads are loaded with a plethera of fabulous ingredients. They’re intented for brightening and nourishing the skin. I only had a few samples of these pads not a full 10 that is in a full size pack. I’d like to try these for longer and hopefully see more of a difference but as far as skin condition they definitely helped it feel softer and healthier.

DAY DAY 365
With various fermented extracts including rose, peppermint,and olive leaf this makes the perfect Morning skin prep! I have fairly dry skin so i rarely cleanse in the morning with anything over than oil cleanser or cleansing essence. These have been a perfect option for my skin!!! Isloate that they have 26 pads all-in-one container I prefer this over some of the other products that come in such small single packages such as the I’m pro ample C or I’m pro ample M pads which are nice that they’re individually packed for travel or for gifting to someone to try K beauty but these pads I love because I feel like I get more Without having to worry I’ll run out of them so often.

NIGHT NIGHT 365
The Night Night 365 pads also come in the same container style as their counterpart Day Day 365 pads. Saturated in a cleansing sea water essence that includes Aloe vera leaf extract and Macadamia seed oil. I got this in a sample pack from Wish Formula at the Kbeauty Expo last month. Worked great in my nightly oil cleansing routine as a follow up step to help clean remaining makeup debris.

C450 BUBBLE PEELING PAD – BODY
Much like the C 200 Bubble Peeling Pad for the face, this body peeling pad had similar components. The Box includes 4 single use pouches and inside each pouch is a large pad with solution for mixing. Slightly different is that this pouch is already filled with one solution. The yellow pouch included is meant to be poured into and mixed with this.
After using my skin Celt very velvety and smooths. My hands and feet often get the brunt of my work day so I did a Before & After of my feet which I often neglect. I persuaded my boyfriend also to try a bubble peeling pad in the shower. He actually really loved it which is pretty rare for anything to do with skin care. I had him pay special care to his tattoo hoping it might brighten it up with a bit of TLC.
The results in the photos don’t show a big difference but the feel of my skin as well as his was quite a difference. Extremely clean without feeling squeaky or dry and velvety soft.
Overall, a solid pampering experience! Since it’s something I would use for the body maybe once every other week, the 4 pouches included in the box go a long way.

BLACKHEAD& BLACK MASK SPA KIT
The black head and black mask home spa kit was a nice option for blackhead removal. Each box comes with 10 individual packs which is great because I love to gift assorted Kbeauty finds to friends! Attached together are the small mask pieces for nose and chin area along with extraction tool and Poor tightening serum. I really loved the nose strip because it seemed to fit perfectly even in the small crevices of my nose were most other masks never seem to be able to reach. The chin mask piece however was just too small and short. It was also difficult to get it to stay in place. For me I think if the chin mask peace was made wider it would be able to stick in place easier. Sadly it was definitely a little annoying to have it constantly drop off. Chin mask fit problems aside, I liked the ability of the solution to sort of loosen up the impacted sebum in the pores. The tool included actually worked fairly nicely though it was a bit painful and personally I usually just use my fingers to extract blackheads. It’s never a pretty job but it’s definitely a necessary one for me. The extraction tool definitely worked and as you can see in the picture it got out quite a bit of gunk! The serum afterwards seem to finish off the process nicely.
