Pyunkang Yul has been on my to-try list ever since its launch in 2016 because of their holistic take on skincare and their gentle, but efficient products for all skin types. The other reason I was interested in the brand was because it was created by the Pyunkang Korean Medine Hospital, a Korean traditional medicine clinic in Seoul specializing in atopic skin disorders. I always find it fascinating that there are a number of Korean skincare brands born out of clinics or hospitals. If only there was a L’oreal Medical Hospital!
What makes this mask special? In addition to fermented black tea extract, this mask also contains niacinamide, peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, hydrolyzed keratin, hyaluronic acid, ceramides and a host of plant extracts! Honestly, this ingredients list is a veritable skincare jackpot!
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Saccharomyces/Xylinum/Black Tea Ferment, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Broussonetia Extract, Glycine Max (Soybean) Seed Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Squalane, Ceramide NP, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Betula Platphylla Japonica Juice, Coptis Japonica Root Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Sodium Polyacryloyidimethyl Taurate, Diethoxyethyl Succinate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, Arginine, Caramel, Dextrin, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Propanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Caprylyl Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin
Skin concerns: Dullness, lack of elasticity, wrinkles
Essence Type: Tea-coloured, jelly-like
Duration: 20 minutes, but I left it on for about 30 minutes
Thickness: Super thin
Mask Fit: Soooo nice! I couldn’t see where my skin started and where the mask began!
Tackiness: None! I found this surprising for a mask with a jelly essence as they tend to take a long time to absorb if at all!
Hydration: Right now, I would say medium because of how dry it has been, but I think when the humidity is higher, hydration would be good!
Other notes: Mask material was very soft and pliable so it stretched in all the right areas. No chin goatee!
Final verdict: I originally picked up a single mask to try from Bellbees.ca, but now they are sold out so I will patiently wait for this mask to come back because it is AWESOME! My skin felt revitalized, looked brighter and felt smoother in texture. Definite must-have mask!
You can find the Pyunkang Yul Black Tea Revitalizing Mask at various Korean e-tailers.
