Review: The Face Shop Mini Capsule Pack (Cucumber)

The Face Shop Mini Capsule Pack (Cucumber) [10ml]
Description: The Face Shop Mini Capsule Wash-Off Pack (Cucumber) has cucumber extract, which is rich in minerals and gives moisture to the skin.

Directions: After cleansing, spread adequate amount of the pack on your face for 10-15 minutes and wash-off with lukewarm water. Avoid the eye and mouth areas.

TIPs: For a cooling and comfortable experience, store the Mini Capsule Pack in the fridge prior to use. 

The Mini Capsule Pack comes in a plastic jelly/flower shaped mould sealed with a foil cover.

 The foil cover can be easily unsealed. However, once you unsealed the cover, you can't reseal it.

Hence, if you don't plan to finish the pack at one go, you probably need a container to store the leftover like what I did. The number of usage for each capsule pack depends on how much you apply and the size of your face. Each capsule pack has enough product for me to use twice.

It does not come with a spatula so if you have spatula at home, you can use it to scoop out the product.

Color and Consistency:
It looks greenish in the capsule pack but once applied on the skin, it turns clear. It has a gel/jelly-like texture with little round undissolved jelly-like particles, which to me kind of resemble the cucumber pulps~

Scent:
It smells like cucumber~

Wash-off demonstration on my mom's hand~:
Apply on skin for 15 minutes. It doesn't drip or make any mess.

After 15 minutes, rinse-off with lukewarm water~

Ta-daaaa~ it can be easily wash-off. No fuss~
I don't find it greasy however, the skin does feel a little sticky right after washing it off. On the positive side, the sticky-feel only lingers for awhile.

Moisture Test:
Before applying the mask, my mom's skin moisture level was 32.6%.
After applying the mask, my mom's skin moisture level increased to 40.8%.

Moisture gained before and after applying the mask was 8.2%.

Comparing the result taken before and after applying the mask,
I concluded that this mask does moisturizes the skin.

**Above result is just for the application of the mask, without prior application of a toner**

Likes:
- leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized
- soothing and cooling (prior storing in fridge)
- not greasy
- easy to wash off
- suits all skin types including sensitive skin
- fuss-free~

Dislikes:
- skin might feels sticky right after washing it off but the sticky-feel only lingers for awhile
- does not come with spatula

Verdict: In my opinion, this Cucumber Mini Capsule Pack is a very basic soothing and hydrating mask, which I think it can be use 2-3 times per week. I don't see any brightening effect after using it though... I find it perfect to use after a long day in the sun or in a hot weather as it helps to soothe and cool the skin while replenish skin moisture, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.

    1. Hello there~! I got it from Taiwan. By the way, I'm selling another model, from Japan's brand "HuntKey" that comes with moisture, oil and cells analyzing features. If you are interested to know more information about it, feel free to drop me an email at bitsdiaries@live.com :)
