I have seen this ad multiple times — newspaper, facebook, newspaper again. It’s kinda like the Hada Labo Perfect Gel without the water droplets. I got curious with these “Aqua Droplets” and thought it was weird. I was eager to try the product, but of course money is a problem (it’s always a problem, I tell you). Fortunately, EK Media/SampleStore sent me Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask (made with Bio Aqua Crystal Technology) this month. Woot! Now I don’t need to buy it haha (I actually thought they have forgotten about me).
What good does it do?
- Enriched with 2 types of Hyaluronic Acid (Power Nano Hyaluronic Acid & Hyaluronic Acid) to replenish and lock-in moisture, providing skin with non-stop hydration
- With Cranberry Extracts to moisturize skin, for a radiant smooth complexion
- Rapidly absorbs into skin, ensuring optimal nutrients being absorbed without any moisture lost and leaves no sticky feeling on skin. Delivers moisture intensively all night to hydrate and repair skin during sleep
- Reveals a revitalized, supple and smooth skin the next morning
To put it simply, this mask hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin.
It also combats the following skin problems:
- Brightens Dull & Tired Skin
- Regulates Oil & Moisture Level
- Moisturizes Dry & Rough Skin
- Refines Enlarged Pores
That’s what they claim. I had to use the product to believe it.
Here it is, tada!
The packaging is still shiny just like the Bio-essence Royal Jelly + ATP series, but this time it has the color of the sea (I know that the sea is blue! But there are times that the sea is green. Don’t argue. There is a color called sea green). The tub is not entirely shiny, only the lid. I like how they made part of the tub transparent — it looks elegant.
Inside is a watery gel-like mask (not the type of mask that hardens) — almost similar to the Hada Labo Perfect Gel, but not greasy. And it smells fruity, too (it’s made from cranberry extract so I guess it’s safe to say that it smelled like cranberry).
Using it is as easy as 1-2-3. Just apply a sufficient amount on your face then massage until aqua droplets appear (see the picture below. That’s not sweat, I’m not kidding.). Then gently pat until fully absorbed by the skin. I’m telling you, it feels refreshing after application. Not greasy, oily, shiny, nor heavy. Do you know the Bio-essence Bio Spring Water? If you have used it before and know how it feels on your skin, that’s the same feeling I have felt after using Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask. When everything dries completely, my skin is also smooth and soft to touch — just like a baby’s skin :D
I find the appearance of the aqua droplets amazing, not to mention unique. I have never seen a product use this kind of technology. Not only it’s fun to apply, it’s also an effective product. Why, you might ask. The skin problems I have mentioned previously are not a problem anymore (except for the refining of the pores. I don’t know how I can prove that. My pores look the same to me). After 8 hours of sleep and deep hydration, I always wake up with a smoother skin. The picture below was taken when I was still in bed (sorry about that).
By the way, Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask can be used day or night. If you want to use it as a moisturizer by day, just apply a thin layer of the mask. If you need an intensive treatment, apply a thicker layer to use it as a sleeping mask and let the magic happen throughout the night. This product is suitable for all skin types and daily use :)
Retail price is S$33.90 for 80g. Seems reasonable :)
I bet you’re curious. Why not get a sample of Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask at SampleStore? :) Samples will be available for redemption starting November 18, 2013.
