Product Critique: iWhite Korea Whitening Pack

Hi guys! I’m back!
I wanted to blog sooner but unfortunately, my laptop has gone wonky again.
Actually, I’m typing this in an internet café at a mall nearest our place.
Praying I’d be able to get a better laptop so I could update as much as I want!
Anyway, I’d like to share to you this product that I’m currently loving.
I haven’t really tried many facial masks because I usually just cleanse, tone, moisturize daily and exfoliate twice or thrice a week, and that’s about it. Thanks to this product right here, I’m inching into taking better care of my facial skin! What product am I talking about?
It’s iWhite Korea’s Whitening Pack!
I’ve used their nose pack and I loved it so I was really excited to try this one!
I was so excited when I received it that I immediately took an IG photo! ☺
Product description at the back, with directions for use, the active ingredients and other contents of the product. I like that it has the manufacturing date and expiration date clearly printed. (Sorry the expiration date was hidden from view dahil natakpan ng watermark heehee).

 

In case you can’t read it well on the photo, here’s the product description with the active ingredients and what they do for your skin:
iWhite Whitening Pack instantly removes dead skin, deep-seated dirt and other impurities to reveal a radiant, glowing, younger-looking skin.  
Especially formulated with Mulberry Extract that whitens dark skin and evens out discolorations, Panax Ginseng Root Extract that revitalizes and improves skin health and Vitamins A, C, E and B5 to prevent premature aging.  

 
This is the amount of the product that I normally use on my face. It’s reminiscent of glue but it isn’t exactly like glue so don’t you worry about that. 😛 The scent is similar to that of the nose pack. It’s really thick and goopy. All the better to coat my face with to remove all the bad gunk!
 
I’ve actually been using this since the third week of March and I must say it really did help me relax from the stressful board exam self-review I subjected myself to. I’d like to share my funny first encounter (first time to use) with this whitening peel-off mask Kindly read my exchange with fellow IG users and beauty enthusiasts!
This was taken March 12th.

 

Yeah I was totally clueless. So for those who are first-time users of peel-off masks like moi, here’s a quick rundown of the steps I did in using this product, plus some Dos and Don’ts:
Step 1: Wash your face and pat it dry with a clean towel.
Step 2: Try to keep your hair away from your face by tying it up, using a headband, or a velcro hair pad.
Step 3: Apply a generous amount of iWhite Whitening Pack. Spread the product evenly while avoiding the eyes, nose, and mouth area but making sure it blends with the iWhite Nose Pack if you had previously applied it. (I actually used the same product on my nose and it works just fine for pore tightening in my opinion but not enough to remove stubborn blackheads. I’ll try using the Nose Pack along with it next time.)
Step 4: Chillax/read/watch TV/surf the net while waiting for 15 minutes or until it dries.
Step 5: Peel off upwards starting from the chin or the other way around depending on which is easier for you and on your tolerance for pain! 😛
Step 6: Moisturize your face to remove residual product and to soothe skin. (I love using iWhite’s Aqua Moisturizing Cream after peeling off the mask. Review on that one real’ soon!). For best results, use 2-4 times a week. 
Haha! A friend replied that I was effective at doing both (kindly read le caption) in this photo taken March 25th. I think I applied it a bit too thin on the upper area of my face, so don’t do that ladies and gents!
Aaaaand, here is me using the product which was freshly applied in this photo I took the other night!
I like the cool sensation it gives when I have this on. It’s very refreshing and soothing to me. I really find it fun whenever it starts to dry up, because I can really feel it tighten on my skin! And of course, those days of peeling off glue that was intentionally spread on your hand (tell me you didn’t do that when you were in elementary?) served as a bit of practice in removing this mask!

Some before and after photos.

The before photos are of my face still unwashed with what was left of my makeup on. Excuse the different lighting as I took the photos from different rooms at night (yikes).
But I love the effect! My face instantly looks refreshed, brighter, and stripped off of excess oil! My skin looks and feels smoother and softer too! My pores look somewhat tighter, but I have large pores to begin with, so I’d continue using this for more improvement! ☺
Now here’s my take on the product loves and grrs style!
LOVES…
* Easy to apply
* Removes dead skin cells effectively
* Gives brighter, smoother skin in an instant and tightened pores with continued use!
* Removes some of the shallow-seated blackheads and whiteheads
* The refreshing cooling effect will always be a big hit for me
* Those with oily or combination skin, rejoice! Your oilies would be removed and lessened in time (with continued use methinks)! Those with dry skin must take the extra step to moisturize well as it can possibly dry out your skin more and it might be a bit more painful for you gals (and guys).
* No skin irritation occurred upon usage
* Dries pretty quickly
* The scent is nice and not bothersome
* Affordable and easy to get hold of
* Will last you a month more or less depending on the amount you use
* You have the option to try it out first via the sachet version
* You can easily see the expiration date printed on the tube/sachet
GRRRS…
* Can be messy to use, but it’s easy to wash off or wipe off with wet tissue so it’s not a big deal.
* A bit painful to remove, but you know what they say “Tiis-ganda” and “No pain, no gain, no guts, no glory!”
VERDICT:
I love this product and will continue to use it all up! Including this in my skin regimen has become a treat for me as it makes me feel I’m doing something good for my skin! Stressful reviewing, grueling tasks and all-nighters had taken their toll on my skin and this product is a momentary respite from all that. I hope it helps lighten my acne scars with continued use, as I have a few on my right cheek at the moment. I’d like to try out other similar products to see how they compare but I have a feeling I’d go back to this from time to time in the future! ☺
iWhite Korea Whitening Pack retails for Php199 for the 95 g tube and it also comes in 8 g sachets for Php 22! You can buy this at Watsons and all leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
