[First Impression] Skinfood Premium Tomato Milky Face Pack

Hey all! Good morning and Happy Hump Day! I’m on a ROLL this week with posting, guys~

Today I’m talking about something I hauled several weeks ago:

 Skinfood Premium Tomato Milky Face Pack

  It’s a squeeze tube with a cap:

  True to name it’s milky-white and creamy:

I did have to be slightly careful when dispensing – it seemed like if I wasn’t careful, too much would come out.  

Here it is after sitting on my hand for 5 minutes:  

  Now this was the most confusing product I’ve ever tried. Just because… I didn’t know exactly how to use it! It’s called a “face pack”, but there were no instructions in English, so I wasn’t sure whether to rub it in or wash it off. And searching online for more information was pretty confusing. Some sites claimed you had to wash it off after only 3-5 minutes, and others claimed you could just rub it in like a moisturizer.

So, I tried using it as a wash-off mask first:

To be honest, as a wash-off mask it was pretty ineffective. It didn’t brighten my skin or make it feel smoother; it might have been mildly exfoliating, but I didn’t really notice any effects from using it this way at all.

This is what Jolse says about it:

“After washing face. Get rid of moisture on your skin. Take care of skin texture with TonerAnd then apply proper amount (as much as coin size) & spread it on all over face. Do massage softly. Rinse it off lightly with warm water after 3-5 minutes or make it absorbed in skin fully according to your expectation.”

Huh. Sounds like it’s a massage cream… that can be washed off or absorbed?? Has anyone else heard of products that can be used like this? Usually they’re either one or the other. I feel like… how can it be effective as a wash-off mask when it’s gentle enough to be left on the face all day/night?

So Koreadepart, Jolse, and Amazon all say the above – that it can also be absorbed. BUT TesterKorea only mentions its wash-off mask properties.

I found this asian beauty blogger’s website:

So the only question is… are you allowed to let this absorb into your skin for the day/night or not?? Because as a wash-off mask, this product performed very “meh” – the My Beauty Diary capsule masks and the Skinfood Royal Honey masks are much more effective, by a long shot.

If it’s supposed to be kept on your skin, it isn’t made very clear that this is what it is for. Skinfood, why are you so vague??

Has anyone tried this before? Or, if you can read Korean – how does one actually use this? 😀
