Claiming to be “3 Free” (later explained in the product claims section), and also free of my usual skincare triggers, I decided to give it a go. Fortunately, I managed to find a local reseller of the 150mL bottles before committing myself to the larger sizes (not to worry, though, as I’ve included an international link for the 150mL if anyone’s curious like I was!), and well, read on to find out whether or not this was a good decision!

Choonee Bird’s Nest Brightening Mask Review:

In all honesty, I’ve never heard of the brand Choonee until stumbling across it during one of my strolls through the aisles of a local pharmacy/drugstore.
