When Beauty: Saviour or Failure?

'When Beauty' is a skincare brand that was created by Korean healthcare specialist Jin Han Lee in 2011. They have been featured in magazines such as Elle, Teen Vogue and Forbes. When I saw their website, I was desparate to try their products - my skin is both dry and oily, so it was in dire need of some TLC. When Beauty were kind enough to send me some products to try, and I'm going to review some of them for you, the readers, today!

Rose Coconut Gentle Exfoliating Scrub Mask:

This exfoliating mask (beginning at $17) felt very nice to wear - you could hardly notice that I had it on my face! This mask worked wonders as my face felt incredibly smooth after using it. However, as my skin is slightly sensitive it did make it feel a little dry and slightly stung. It has still, however, become a permanent part of my skincare routine as it is one of the best exfoliators I have ever used.

Rating: 7.5/10

The Last Choice Extra-Hydrating Premium Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask:

For just $5, this mask is an absolute STEAL! It smells like lemon which is very pleasing. Unlike a lot of other masks it sticks to your face extremely well and doesn't begin to slide off when you talk, which is amazing as sitting in silence for more than a minute is practically impossible for me. Although it says extra-hydrating, I was not prepared for the sheer amount of hydration this gave me. My skin looked so much brighter and felt incredibly soft, and there was enough serum left over to put some on my neck too.

Rating: 10/10

Present Perfect Firm Up Ultra-Soft Cotton Linter Bemiliese Sheet Mask:

This mask was truly a god-send. My skin had been becoming more dry and looked quite tired. Once I used this, my skin looked brighter, firmer and more youthful. At only $3, this mask is something I will definitely be stocking up on in the future as it really worked wonders and it made my skin feel amazing and fresh!

Berry Dual Gel & Cream Anti-Aging Sleep Mask:

Priced at $23, this product promises to nourish the skin and help with anti-aging. I had very high hopes for it. When I applied the cream, it felt smooth but slightly greasy. It smelled incredible, though! I personally felt that this cream did not do much for my skin at all but this may vary from person to person!

Rating: 2/10

Overall, I do rate When Beauty quite highly and I will be purchasing some of their products in the near future (especially their amazing face masks!). A major plus is that they do not test on animals - however not all of their products are vegan, so please be aware of that if you are considering buying them!
