I bought this product on a whim to add to my 10 step as I don't wear make up i usually skip oil cleanse, but wanted to add it in. When I recieved it I was a bit dismayed to read it was for oily/combi skin! Best mistake I ever made! My sister, also a k skincare addict, tried this for a few days and broke out hugely, she has combi/oily skin. Alot of reviews I've read online from people also stating it has brought them out more than helped. I decided to plunge and try it even though it wasnt advertised for my skintine, and well, it works wonders for me!
only gave a 3 as it is wrongly advertised for oily skin and I believe it works better on dryer skin tones that are less prone to acne.
This is a good quality product, and it does the job of moisturizing quite well. I used this when I used to have patches of eczema on my face, and it didn't sting or cause any further redness. The only con is that it is pretty expensive, and I know you can get creams that cost less that probably work just as well as this.
I originally found this elsewhere when searching for products containing ceramides+cholesterol. I have dehydrated acne-prone skin and it really helps soothe breakouts. I think it helps a lot that it contains moisturizing ingredients as well as the drying clay. The smell is really nice too! It has luffa powder which can be a bit scratchy so I have to wash it off carefully, but it is nowhere near as harsh as walnut shells and I like that it does not have microbeads.
I'm just starting to use this product but it seems good so far. I have combination skin and after only one use I noticed less redness and more even texture. My skin felt a bit tight after using this so I used a bit of coconut oil to moisturize afterwards. Also, I got some in my eyes and it was pretty painful and was worsened by eye drops etc. but as long as you don't get it in your eye this is a great product that is not too drying and not too moisturizing.
My thoughts on Lovemore Loofah and Aloe Vera Hydrating Mask Sheet
This is the first time I ever tried any product from Lovemore. This is not a Korean brand (it’s from Taiwan).
This mask is supposed to be hydrating and alleviating blemishes and that is exactly the reason I chose to use this mask today. My skin has been acting up and I normally don’t get any acne and I am not sure if it is hormonal or if it is the cleanser I recently tried out.
The smell of the mask is fresh and I do smell the aloe vera in it and it is simply a nice smell that isn’t too strong.
The essence is watery but not too liquid to be able to stand up whilst using it. I do prefer to lay down when masking since I find it easier and it gives me an opportunity to relax
There is some essence left in the packaging when removing the mask, don’t throw that away, instead use it all over your body and give it some love as well.
The sheet itself is made of silk which makes it really lovely to use. And it is thinner then many other sheet masks.
The mask is packaged in a double layer, first one plastic sheet and then a blue sheet, but it is still easy to unfold and to apply.
The fitting of the masks is really great. I usually have problems with the eye area. I have large eyes and usually the openings for the eyes are a little small. But this was really great fitting even around the eyes.
It lasted me the whole 20 minutes without drying and I could have had it on for longer.
This mask was supposed to be intensely hydrating, and I do feel that it isn’t at all. A few minutes after removing the mask it has fully absorbed into my skin, but my skin feels really dry and in need of moisture
What this mask is supposed to do is to moisturise your skin. I'm a combination skin and gave a go at it. My skin feels moisturise for the normal/dry areas, but I had minor break outs on my oily areas, which are my T-Zone. Does it really do the job in moisturising ? Yes, it does ! Is it suitable for Combination/Oily Skin Type ? Maybe not.
I always come back to this emulsion since it doesn't annoy my skin. I wish it was better at brightening and less sticky, but it seems good for my skin even though it has alcohol. I've used it for 2.5 years and bought 6 bottles in that time. I use it after toner and essence, or sometimes just by itself before sunscreen if I am in a hurry.
PROS: It’s non-sticky, non-greasy, lightweight, moisturizing, and hydrating. It really gives me a good base for the next application of skincare or makeup. I actually prefer to use this when I’m applying makeup. Plus, it's soothing and healing because of the Centella Asiatica Extract.
CONS: I think some people may not like this because of its alcohol content.
