16BRAND 16 Skin Guide Book Marine Collagen Shower Mask was purchased Cosmeperks.
I have been dying to try 16Brand/Chosungah products so I jumped when the chance was given to me. I also purchased one of their famous tiny eyeshadow brushes, but that is a different story.
This mask’s design is attractive and the promises are tempting. The brand is well known in Korea for its quality, so even if you don’t try it yourself you should at least read this.

16BRAND 16 Skin Guide Book Marine Collagen Shower Mask Review:
First of all, I love love love the design! I love photography and I’m quite good at it (not at blogging photography though, I don’t know why). And I go to photography exhibitions all the time.
Also it does look like a cool water beach which I love. This mask looks like going on your dream vacation.
I also love all that it promises since collagen? Hydration? Watery shine? All my favorites and my main needs in one pack.
I appreciate you don’t need to cut nor tear it open. The easy opening ACTUALLY worked for once. This is a very big props moment to 16 Brand. To remove all the (thick) leftover essence you have to use a spatula or your fingers though.
I expected a fresh marine smell on the mask as soon as I opened but… I smell nothing. Nothing at all.
Which is good, I guess, but I was living my beach dream hehe.
The essence is a transparent gel that relieves my very dehydrated skin as soon as it touches. In fact the relief is so big I wish it covered my eyes… and preferably my whole body too.
The mask adherence is amazing, and the fit is decent. The only problem is that the eye hole ends waaay too close to my eye’s outer corner and that’s bothersome some times. All those lumps you see on the mask are not air pockets – just creased folded mask because the mask is a little big for me, but the adherence is so good I just removed the air pockets and left it as it was.
Let me apologize for my big nose in the photos, some days you just take photos in bad angles… that has been my whole week. But regardless, look at the results!
The answer, ladies and gentlemen, is “Yes, the results feel as amazing as they look”.
Honestly I was expecting to be a little disappointed but I am everything BUT disappointed! This brand is targeted at young audiences and the mask is around 4$ so I was expecting it to be one of those…deceivers.
The hydration is amazing, it tightened my skin all up (in the good sense, like elasticity), and it relieved from the desert feeling of dehydrated skin.
With the remaining essence I applied on my neck and chest, and I lightly rubbed the mask on my arms and legs. Yes. Because the mask didn’t dry when the time was up and the relief and hydration are too good to pass on.
The comfort and effects lasted for quite a while – I masked one day and only on the third day morning did I mask again. You can see it on the last photo in the image above, it’s pretty good if I say so myself. Of course I did my normal skin care routine, but so did I on the “before” picture and the comfort did last me enough I didn’t even consider masking for 1 day and a half. And the only reason I masked… is because I had another of these masks and wanted to feel it again hehe.
It’s not a watery hydration, but it absorbs well and leaves no tacky feeling, and it’s very long lasting. I recommend this a thousand times. If you want hydration, and I think I would use this even in the humid summer (just at night). The essence gel is so thick it would be amazing in the fridge too!
