Aritaum Fresh power essential Hyaluronic Acid Mask Review:
I am on a personal quest to find out which Aritaum masks are good and which ones are a little less than pleasing. I’ve already encountered both cases, and the good ones have been the most surprising “flavors” for me! So I decided to be adventurous and try something I didn’t even hear about until I got into Asian Beauty and that is Hyaluronic Acid.
This specific mask from Aritaum has even been voted the best hydration mask in a blind test in one episode of Get It Beauty, the most famous beauty TV show here in Korea. Usually this TV show doesn’t hit the marks by much, as they give a detailed explanation and details of the points of each product, so knowing this was the winner increased my expectations by a relative amount.
Rich in moisture and gives elasticity to the skin, it’s moisturizing water type essence contains 2.000 mg of hyaluronic acid, and a clinical test has proven it increases the skin moisture by 119% right after using.
Purified water, Sodium hyaluronate (2000μg), Sophora flavescens , Gold Euphoria extract, Green tea extract, Peach tree leaf extract, Ginkgo leaf extract, Golden extract, Disodium iodide, Phenoxyethanol, Perfume, glycerin, Butylene glycol, PEG / PPG-17/6 copolymer, ethanol, Grapefruit extract, PEG-75, Xanthan gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil
How to use:
- Wash your face and gently pat it dry.
- Refine the skin with a toner, and then apply the mask, matching the eyes, nose, and lips with the appropriate area.
- Remove it after 15 to 20 minutes and pat the remaining essence dry.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, sensitive, blemishes easily, and allergic.
Aritaum Fresh Power Essential Hyaluronic Acid Mask Review:
I am on a personal quest to try all the masks from Aritaum. They are affordable, and they’re always a surprise, since some of them are amazingly good and some of them are amazingly… normal.
So, I can tell you that “as usual” the pouch opens in a way I can easily separate the front and back sides so that I can remove the mask from the inside without a struggle.
The mask is pretty soaked in essence but it’s not drenched, it’s not dripping any product!
The mask sheet is the same as all other Aritaum masks, it’s thin and light, but it has a triple layer system that retains the formula inside the middle layer, keeping it moist for long and not wasting it on the side of the mask you’re not using.
As usual in Korean mask sheets (I would like to try a European one once) the nose fit is rather awkward on me, so I fixed it by cutting the nose out and applying it separately.
But the mask clings very well to the skin and there are no air pockets, meaning all of the mask is sticking to my skin and giving it the formula, which is not that usual in the Aritaum masks (so it’s probably because of the formula).
The scent is intense in freshness, it’s like you’re smelling the freshness itself! It’s not a strong smell and it smells watery.
Both the smell and the feeling on the skin can be described as “the feeling you have when you arrive to a high mountain natural spring water and you feel fresh and rejuvenated”.
The formula absorbs like so. It’s just a little sticky after it’s all spread, so I will definitely wait for absorption when I remove the mask. Skin products shouldn’t be called sticky until they are completely absorbed.
A little before the 20 minutes are up I started feeling the area under my nose had been fully absorbed– so it’s time to remove the mask. The remaining essence on my face feels like… moisturizing water. As usual there’s leftover essence, so use it! On your neck, arms, legs, don’t waste it.
My skin feels fresh and it does feel tremendously hydrated! So much that my eyes feel dry by comparison. And the best part is that it feels hydrated and not dry at all, I don’t feel the need for a strong moisturizer.
I understand why this mask was voted the best hydrating mask in the most famous Korean beauty TV show. I will definitely keep using this mask.
