Happy first of April everyone! Let’s kick start the month with a beauty review on one of K-Beauty’s most popular skincare brand, Innisfree. But before we proceed to the actual review, allow me to extend my most heartfelt gratitude to everyone who participated in my first ever blog party and posted their congratulatory notes. Thank you very much!
Today’s beauty review is all about the Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack in Bija & Tea Tree. I’ve been using this product for about a few weeks now. And after spending some time collecting my thoughts about this product, I am excited to share my take on this capsule clay mask.
Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack in Bija & Tea Tree
A wash-off pack which contains Jeju Bija and Tea Tree oil, this product helps in soothing and relieving skin irritation, as well as in keeping the skin moisturized.
After cleansing, apply a thin layer of the mask onto the skin and leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.
The Bija & Tea Tree mask pack is only one among a variety of capsule packs from Innisfree. The line includes other variants such as Aloe, Green Tea, Canola Honey, Volcanic Clay, among others.
The Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack comes in a resealable plastic capsule. The capsule contains 10ml of product which lasts for about 4-5 uses.
The product information is written in Korean.
The actual product comes in a typical clay mask texture. The texture is neither too soft nor too hard. It takes about a few swipes of my mask brush to pick up the product and it glides easily on the skin upon application.
It has quite of a strong scent, very close to the smell of mixed herbs and oils. At my first trial, I found the scent very disturbing, enough for me to wash off the mask sooner than was intended. But in the succeeding days of testing out the product, I was able to bear the scent and to keep the mask on my face for the entire session.
After washing the mask off, my face was noticeably softer and smoother. I usually have redness on my cheeks caused by rosacea. But after using the clay mask, my face was a lot less flushed and less irritated.
I developed four pustules around my neck. I didn’t apply the mask on my neck so I couldn’t say for sure if it was the culprit for my pimple-like bumps. I also rarely ever get pimples on my face, so it was strange for me to find four zits the day after.
Thankfully, the four bumps on my neck disappeared after two days. There was nothing significant on my third trial and the results were pretty much the same with my first trial.
4 out of 5 stars
What I like:
- This clay mask does an impressive job in calming redness and other skin irritation without stripping moisture off the skin the way other clay masks do.
- It retails at a very affordable price of PHP 90 at Althea Korea.
What I don’t like:
- The scent is quite overpowering for my liking.
- The capsule packaging doesn’t appeal to me, as I am not much of a fan of products that come in small quantities. Although it is a good thing that the capsule is resealable, I still prefer clay masks that come in a more compact, sturdier tub.
Will I repurchase?
I still haven’t decided about that yet.
Will I recommend?
I recommend the Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack in Bija & Tea Tree to those who aren’t too sensitive to strange herbal scents and to those who are looking for a decent clay mask that helps in soothing troubled skin. If you can keep up with the scent, then this clay mask is a good match for you.
