I love skincare. That's why when I was chosen to be a tester for the Oh K! Beauty bag, I was stoked! The bag contained a moisturizer, 3 sheet masks, and a foot mask.
❤️ Oh K! Beauty's Glowing Moisturizer
About the product: This moisturizer isn't tested on animals, sulfate free, gluten free, and suitable for vegans. It also contains citrine. The moisturizer says on the container, "citrine energy, ruby empower, and quartz balance". Citrine is for cell renewal. It is a sunshine stone, so when you place that on your face or in your energy field, it reminds you to tap into the energy from the sun. Citrine also has regenerative properties, meaning it helps with your skin's renewal process. Along with internal organ aid, citrine helps maintain healthy skin, nails, and hair. It also works as a skin alleviant due to irritations and allergies- especially those that are brought about by food or chemical intolerances.
🧡 Skin Clarifying Leopard Print Sheet
About the mask: The mask is made in Korea. It also contains tea tree oil and willow bark. Tea tree oil is great for treating acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It's also thought to calm redness, swelling, and inflammation. It may even help to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving you with smooth, clear skin. Willow bark is great for skin because it has been used for centuries to soothe irritated skin. Containing salicin—from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation.
💛 Revitalizing Peppermint Foot Mask.
About the mask: This is also made in Korea. The masks are meant to soothe tired feet by being cooling and refreshing. Peppermint oil naturally cleanses the skin and has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It has a cooling effect which soothes irritation and inflammation due to acne.
💚 Brightening Watermelon Sheet Mask
About the mask: This is also made in Korea, as are all the other products. The mask is antioxidant rich and locks in moisture. The mask also has vitamin C. Watermelon is good for skincare because incorporating it into your routine can help calm inflamed areas, heal damage after a breakout, and even control conditions like acne and eczema from the inside out. For generations in Korea, watermelon rind has been used to comfort aggravated skin. It can reduce redness, calm inflammation, and even speed up the cell turnover process. “Reportedly, Korean grandmothers used to rub watermelon rinds on sunburn, rashes, or irritated skin to soothe it and help it recover faster,” says California-based dermatologist Anna Guanche. “Cooling masks where watermelon rind is combined with avocado or banana can help with healing.” If your face is showing signs of UV damage, dark spots, or dry patches, it’s time to break out the vitamin-rich ingredient to fast-forward healing. “The vitamins A and C found in watermelon can help restore damaged skin after it’s exposed to sun, wind, or even stress,” says Guanche. Vitamin E, which is also present in the fruit, can lighten hyperpigmentation, fill out fine lines, and help neutralize the effects of free radicals (like sunburn). “Watermelon has a ton of vitamin E, which is a rejuvenating antioxidant for the skin,” adds Lancer.
Vitamin C is great for skin because "Vitamin C promotes collagen production, which has the potential to thicken the dermis, diminish fine lines, and is essential for firm, youthful skin,” says Dr. Patricia Wexler, a dermatologist in New York City. On top of that, vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure.
💙 Replenishing Je Ju Island Hydrogel Mask.
About the mask: This mask replaces moisture to the skin. It also is two pieces, so it clings to the skin and forms to the face. The mask also has jeju prickly pear and green tea. The jeju prickly pear is great for skin because which works to quickly absorb into the skin to soothe and hydrate it. Its high antioxidant factors help skin restore elasticity and even out complexion for a brighter glow. Green tea is great for skin because the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties in it may make it an effective treatment for acne and oily skin. According to research , the polyphenols in green tea, when applied to the skin, help reduce sebum secretion, which can lead to acne.
