Skin Food Gold Caviar Collagen Serum (Cosmeceutical for wrinkle care); For Firmer and Healthier Sense

Product Description:
Cosmeceutical for wrinkle care A collagen-enriched serum with Russian caviar extract, pure gold particles, and collagen extract that fill up loose, deflated skin for a firmer, tighter complexion.
Use: After toner application, dispense an ample amount into your palm. Smooth on the face in gentle rolling motions.

A friend of mine was introduced this serum to be a holly gorgeous, but off course as a wise woman I did not immediately buy it just because she'd told me that. hehe. 
I'm a woman who believe to the fact that all skin typed has their own reaction for a particular result, "it may be good for her, but it may be caused unnecessary results for me" 
And as a consequence beyond all of her words about good, nice, best, etc, her persuasion layed on my head for a very long time, until now, I surrender myself to try this full size, since I could not find any gold caviar collagen serum in sample feature.

Designed in a very nice packaging. A gold, dark bottle, a very oldish and mature. Came along with a pump type, which make this serum looked very hygienic and serious... :p

The cap itself is throned with a luster skin food logo; an angel means a guardian supporting skin with a very safe (botanical, foods) formula and ingredients.  

Can you see its gold?

This is a very unique formula, surrounds gold particles. Well, I could not said "this" is a liquid or oil, I just guessing this is both of them. Contains collagen as the main ingredients. It applied smoothly on my face. It's not quickly absorbed, but its okay for me caused I used it at night, and don't feel like I must faced human faces at night.

Please take a note that I'm under doctor's control treatment; including night cream which characterize to be heavy peeling cream. If some of you were also doing the same way, I'm sure that you may agreed that doctor's treatments were sometimes, or mostly, extremely ex-foliate our skin. Doing hardly in peel off our skin, leaving it lil bit rough in the morning. (doctor's: renewal skin, I said: serious exfoliation) 

However, it's safe for me caused using this serum is kind of antidote from too much ex foliation. For days, continuously, I can feel my skin firmer, healthier and well moisturized, especially in the morning. 

My honest review: I do love this serum and will continue it with other gold caviar series in the future (for this fact?? I just want to blame my dear friend)

Overall review: This serum could be too oily if you used it as a base make up, unless you have a very dry skin type. Best to be used at night if you hesitant with its result.

Skin Food Ginseng Mask; Transforms Dullness

Add-on, a yellow plastic spoon

A mask pack that transforms dull-looking and lifeless skin into a pure, luminous complexion with powdered white ginseng from Geumsan (A place in South Korea, well-know for its Ginseng)

how to use
After washing, apply an ample amount onto face and massage gently. Leave for 5 minutes, and then rinse off with lukewarm water.

Comparing with previous Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off, the texture also contains with beads, but softer.
A yellowish color which sticky and easily melted. 

It looks like a jelly lays in my white bread :p 

Sniff.. Sniff... Honestly, I don't smell some fragrance from this mask. A ginseng scent, is almost none. I do not know whether it is a good news or bad news, but for some who do not familiar with particular scents, will perhaps love this mask.

I love the jelly texture, it smooth and easily melted on my skin (always mentions). Well... this is my second mask I have tried from Skin Food, but surely now I divine that perhaps all Skin Food' mask: whatever the the texture and the smells will be absolutely different, but they are have same characteristic of being "easily melted." :D

This mask is shout out as a mask which offers to transform dullness into pure and luminous, and I have said nothings about dullness, but in fact "yes, it leaving my skin a supple touching". More elastic, especially on my face line (lips, T-zone, and cheek). 

Overall, I like this mask. Worth trying even for a sensitive skin typed whatsoever :D.

My random questions about this mask:
Do, any of you, know why this mask does not titled as a "Wash Off" (Rice Mask Wash Off, Black Sugar Mask Off), while off course we knew it, (as instructed) as a "wash off" mask?? (I still don't have any ideas about this) hehe..

Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off

Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off Sample Feature

SKINFOOD Rice Mask Wash Off contains various nutrients, including Vitamins and Minerals, which soothe irritated skin and whiten skin.
Rice extract is a gentle but effective whitening ingredient. It not only vitalizes skin, but also hydrates skin, for bright and whitened skin. 

how to use it
After cleansing, apply the mask to lightly wet face (avoid eye and lip area). Gently press and massage (for sensitive skin, massage is not advisable). Leave it for 10-15 minutes and then rinse well with water.

The texture is creamy but lil bit thick (concentrated)  i supposed, contains beads (exfoliants) purposed to removed dead skin. Shout out as a whitening mask.

For such a mask, I noticed the beads looked huge and rough as seen on the picture above. But surprisingly, the beads wont harm or hurts my face cause the cream melted into lil bit oily after seconds. I massage it gently on my face, and focuses on my nose to see how it works on my blackheads, and yes it does work reduced my blackheads around my nose... only a few, but it's okay for me. It leaving my skin smooth and moist. Nice.... 

The best things in reading or making a review is the good news instead a bad news underneath. I will not say that this is the best mask I ever try from now on, but I'm sure enough that this mask will give a good result if you use it wisely and follow the right directions. 

So I closed this review saying you a good news above all, that this mask is totally secure for my face and there's no redness come up after I washed it off. 

However, please be wiser to choose your skin care, especially how you treat your face. I advise some of you who have a sensitive skin, use this mask without giving it any massages. Better tap it gently and leaving it approximatively less than 10 minutes. I supposed that trying a sample feature before you continued buying a full size is advisable :D
