What is ‘Skinesque’? Simply put, it’s a Korean beauty & skincare brand made for today’s time-strapped women. Take the Enzyme Washing Powder, which uses all natural ingredients to cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin. Formulated with papaya enzymes, it removes impurities and uses Papain, an enzyme from papaya extract, which has exfoliating properties, to remove dead skin cells to improve tone and texture of skin. Gentle enough to use every day, a little powder goes a long way (as we learned) so just lather up a small amount to start. It’s gentle enough that it didn’t strip our skin of essential oils. ($30.00.)
Once your skin is clean, follow with either the AQUA mask or the Brightening+ Charcoal Mask. Each of these mask treatments comes in a 3-step pack containing everything you need — gentle foaming cleanser, hydrating essence, and brightening face mask. They recommend leaving on for 15 minutes but we went for 25 minutes and our skin was glowing afterward. (Box of 5 masks = $37.50.)
The Charcoal Mask is made of oak tree charcoal, which absorbs toxins and impurities, and delivers essential ingredients for brightening and hydrating benefits. Niacinamide evens out skin tone and helps to improve the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. Birch Tree Sap, a proven skin- brightening ingredient, creates a radiant complexion. Recommended usage : 2-3 times a week.
Use the AQUA 3-step mask for deep hydration, thanks to Aloe Vera which hydrates skin and retains moisture; Centella Asiatica which repairs skin tissues and prevents premature aging; Ceramide 3, an anti-aging ingredient, prevents moisture loss and helps repair damaged skin and Adenosine reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Again, use 2-3 times a week or when your skin needs a pick-me-up.
Did we mention that all of their products are travel-friendly? And time-friendly, a must-have for today’s woman.
