Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack was purchased by Cosmeperks for review purposes.
If you follow Korean Skincare, I am pretty sure you have heard of sleeping packs or commonly known as sleeping masks before. Basically, sleeping mask comes at the end of your skincare routine. These are creams that you apply on your face thinly before you dose off. The logic behind sleeping mask is that they help lock in all the moisture just so you could wake up with a beautiful, radiant skin. I have never used a legit sleeping mask before, so I was very much excited to try Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack.
- Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack is a hydrating sleeping pack enriched with red wine extracts from France which helps lift away dead skin cells and provide moisture.
- It creates clear and elastic jelly-like skin with its shape-memory barrier that unveils a softer, smoother, more radiant and revived complexion to use.

Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack Review:
Duration of use: March 21, 2017 to April 3, 2017
I wanted to make an in depth review as much as I can so I have used Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack for two weeks which is pretty much the standard time for testing products’ efficacy. While it is suggested to use this mask 2-3 times a week only, I found myself reaching for this product more than the prescribed usage (I have used it almost every night) for two reasons:
1. To gauge its effectivity as accurate and precise as I can, and
2. My skin has enjoyed the right moisture that it provides.
For the purposes of reviewing this product, I have cut short my skincare routine. Since Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack claims to lift away dead skin cell, I have refrained from using both physical (scrubs, exfoliating gel and pad) and chemical exfoliator to see if this product delivers. For the testing period, I kept my routine short and simple: double cleansing-essence-sleeping pack. For reference, these are the products that I have used during this phase:
–> Essence: Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence;
–> Sheet Masks: L’Herboflore Orchid Whitening Hydromask and Naruko Jobs Tears Mask;
–> Sleeping pack: Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack.
Prior to this period, I have been using sheet masks on a daily basis and my skin has never been this amazing. Since this product promises hydration, I have decided to cut my sheet mask usage into once a week only (I couldn’t fully take sheet masks off my routine for therapeutic reasons more than beautification); It has been a habit of mine to put on a nice cold mask before hitting the sack.
You see, Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack doesn’t promise a lot of things and honestly, I am not expecting a lot from it. Not being skeptical but I just feel that if anything, it can only provide my skin good hydration. Now allow me to breakdown this sleeping pack for you.
The packaging is very neat and minimalistic which is usual for Innisfree products. It comes in a big plastic tub which is pretty sturdy. Generally, I prefer creams/moisturizer to be in tube form because I find it more hygienic but I guess you just can’t do away with jars so I am cool with it. However, I am a bit disappointed that Innisfree didn’t think of throwing in a spatula with this product, I mean seriously? Wouldn’t hurt to be thoughtful you know, after all, this product is not cheap.
As I open the jar, my nose is thrilled with a strong wine scent. While the scent really lingers, I don’t find it disturbing because I quite like it. It smells a bit sweet and it reminds me of candy! The texture, as expected is kind of jelly-ish. I was worried when I scooped and applied it at the back of my hand because it felt thick and rich; at the back of my mind, I was like “uh-oh definitely not for oily skin, and MOST DEFINITELY NOT FOR SUMMER!”
But I still gave it a shot because I was curious about how well a wine containing product would fare on my skin. Wine, basically coming from grape extract is well known for its anti-oxidant properties so I am really excited about this product! I was quite worried that this product would be kind of acidic because I am honestly trying to avoid anything that may be too harsh for my skin; to pacify myself, I have checked its pH and I am glad that its pH falls on skin’s pH range. You see, my skin is a little bit sensitive and allergic and the summer heat agitates it from time to time so I try to stick with gentler products nowadays.
I would also like to note that this product has got an interesting consistency or makeup–no matter what you do, the product returns to its original form (takes its containers’ space) so it is always neat to look at! I have taken a photo where I mashed the pack with spatula, but it did settle nice and neat to its original form after some time.
Going back (I’m sorry dear reader I just have too much to say I don’t know where to start☺), Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack is pretty thick but spreadable. However, I find that I needed more amount to cover my entire face. It is necessary that you massage it well until your skin absorbs it because this jelly will sit on top of your skin if you don’t! The jelly ends up being like a lump of cream sitting atop your face and definitely won’t settle unless you blend well. Since I am having really oily skin lately, I applied it thinly on my face the first time.
Surprisingly, the finish of this jelly is not one bit shiny and is actually kind of matte after some time. I was happy that this product didn’t cause any irritation on my skin and I like the fact that I didn’t woke up with a greasy face. Unfortunately though, I didn’t notice wow! kind of brightening when I woke up but I would like to note that my skin didn’t look dull during the testing phase even if I ditched my physical exfoliator which says something about this product –I feel that it was able to keep my glow even if I don’t use scrubs or exfoliating pads.
After weeks of using it, I have noticed that my pimple scars on chin have lightened a bit. Now I am not solely crediting Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack for this fact but I honestly think and feel that it has helped my essence (Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence) in fading pimple marks. I don’t usually get pimples but when I do they really leave bad marks which takes some time to fade; this skincare combo however effectively lightened my marks in two weeks’ time.
Now I don’t have a before and after photos because I honestly didn’t think that I would need one (I didn’t expect anything more than moisturizing) so I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it. This product, just like most of Korean products I have used before are pretty much on the gentle side so do not expect significant and immediate results. I would definitely keep using this product and see how much good it would contribute to my skin.
What I like the most about this product is the fact that it works well with my oily skin! If you think that people with oily skin can’t use sleeping masks, THINK AGAIN. Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack provides just enough moisture for my combination/oily face. I use it almost every night and its summer for me yet I have not encountered any problem with it. Do not be fooled by the thick and rich appearance because in reality, it is a lightweight and non-greasy pack! I do feel, however, that people with really dry skin will find this insufficient in terms of hydration.
Overall, I have come to like this product more than I think I would. I honestly don’t feel the need of a sleeping mask considering my skin type but I am glad that this product worked well with my skin. Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack is a promising product, I can say this because I have ditched my exfoliators for two weeks yet my skin didn’t appear flat nor dull which means a lot to me because one of my concerns is having a dull skin.
Nevertheless, it is a little premature to say that I would repurchase this item. After all, my tub is still almost full so I would probably just continue using it. I feel that Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack would work best with people of oily and dull skin. Surprisingly, this sleeping pack falls under lightweight category so it is perfect for when the temperature rises yet you feel like using a sleep mask!
