What is this product?

Moisture pads that instantly soothes and deeply moisturizes the skin just in one step. Easy.



What are the key ingredients and their functions?

Product description is originally in Korean and printed on both the container and the outer box packaging.

Nevertheless, the English version of product description can be found printed on the inner side of the box packaging (as shown above). This is really handy because you need not to go to their website in order to check on the information.


There is a protection lid to secure the moisture pads at its highest hygiene. And a small plastic clip for taking out the moisture pads without using bare fingers (as below).

Application

As suggested, there are two (2) ways to use this moisture pads:
  1. As a toner pad - After cleansing, wipe across the skin and gentle pad on the skin until absorbed.
  2. As a mask pad - Place the pads on targeted areas and let it sit for 10-15 minutes for more concentrated hydration.

Since it is lightweight water type texture, I think it's perfect to use as toner and/or daily mask.



Here's how I'm incorporating the light cream in my morning and night skincare routine.


AM routine:
Waterful Green Bamboo Pads > Serum > Moisturizer > Sunscreen


PM routine:
Makeup remover > Cleanser > Waterful Green Bamboo Pads > Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer


Makeup routine:
Waterful Green Bamboo Pads > Base /  Face > Brow > Eye > Lip



The moisture pads are made using a mix of Eucalyptus and Tencel to create a natural cotton gauze that allows the essence to absorb well into the skin.

Look how well-fitting and smooth the moisture pad on the skin!

Personal Experience

Between the two suggested usage, I prefer these moisture pads as the on-the-go instant boost. When you need a quick hydration on certain areas (i.e. cheeks), but sheet mask is too extra - this is it.

In spite the gauze-like thin pads have better adhesion, it can be tricky to separate them and take out because they tend to stick together.
