Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off Review

First of all, I'd like to apologize for being MIA for the past... month or more. I had a long break and afterwards I got sick and didn't feel very well for couple of weeks, on top of being busy with work. Everything I was working on for my blog had to be delayed, my drafts, all the pictures in my camera that were yet to be edited, and emails I had to response. Now I'm feeling better and I realize I'm so behind schedules. I'm still trying to catch up on emails between editing pictures and writing a post. But finally here I am, writing my super delayed post. 

I'm sure everyone heard and probably most of us Korean skincare lovers had already tried this product from Skinfood, which is the Rice Mask Wash Off. I read and heard good reviews about this product but I only tried bit by bit from the samples I received from my other orders. I didn't really use it religiously until recently. I know I'm super late lol. But I didn't have dry skin until lately, probably because I was stressing out so much and didn't really take care of my skin like before and there are dry patches here and there that sometimes it doesn't feel like my skin anymore. It's that terrible. So I was excited to try this product after reading the description in the back of the packaging. 

And now let me tell you more about the Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off after using it the past 3 weeks.

Anyhow, I received this product from Q-Depot for review purposes. Maybe some of you have heard about them? In case you haven't, Q-Depot is an online webstore that carries Korean cosmetics and skincare. They have over 15,000 products and carry 25+ brands so far. Their warehouse is based in Korea so they deliver your orders directly from Korea, and they offer worldwide shipping. One of the main good things shopping in Q-Depot is, they donate 3% of their profit to social causes as social responsibility is the core value of their store. Now I'll get more to the product.

The mask is 100g worth of product. It is bulky and I'm not so sure if it is travel friendly. It's packaged in plastic tub with ingredients and english description on the packaging. In the description it's said that this mask contains rice bran water. Rice bran water is known to be moisturizing and help in pore tightening, preventing hyper pigmentation and age spot. From the ingredients list, I see couple of ingredients that I recognize and not quite comfortable with like perfume and dimethicone. Makeup products that contain those normally would break me out. But so far, after using this mask for weeks, I don't see any breakouts on my skin.

The texture of this mask is quite interesting. It is not sticky, a bit watery and you can feel the tiny particles that feel like rice granules. The rice beads are soft so it doesn't hurt or irritate the skin. It also feels soft almost like foam. The texture reminds me of soft porridge somehow lol. The weird thing is I feel like it smells nice, but at the same time when I sniff it, it doesn't have any scent if that makes sense. Obviously it doesn't make sense haha. But probably there's a tiny bit subtle scent that is pleasant to my nose.

Moving on, I take adequate amount and put them on my face, mostly cheek, nose and around eyebrow and mouth area because those are the dry parts of my skin. It doesn't tighten my skin while it sits on my face, and though quite watery it sticks on my skin very well there will be no dripping. After few minutes massaging the face, I normally let it sit around 15 minutes and more, because most of the time I forget I have the mask on my face lol. Then I rinse my face with lukewarm water without anymore face wash products, just water. 

- Affordable
- Lots amount of product in the tub
- Moisturizes skin
- No irritation
- Good for dry, sensitive, and normal skin
- A little goes a long way

- Not so travel friendly

If you want a cheaper alternative for daily mask that is moisturizing and giving you soft skin while brighten dull skin, then this is possibly what you're looking for. It is affordable, easy to use, and effective. I find my skin, especially the drier parts, more soft and moist. So far it helps me combat my flaky skin too.
