Half Moon Eyes Pink Fruity Wash Off Face Mask Exfoliator Honest Review

A pink wash-off mask that exfoliates and looks like a dragon fruit, the Half Moon Eyes Pink Fruity Wash Off Face Mask Exfoliator looks cute enough to eat (but don't eat it). An oasis in the desert, Hylocereus Undatus Fruit (a dragon fruit), is rich in moisture and abundant in Polysaccharide which enhances skin tightening.

First off, I love the scent and I love how it looks like a dragon fruit with its seed-like particles. It smells so fruity. It definitely did a good job of clearing my skin of its excess sebum. My skin did feel slightly moisturized but not so much as that I would skip moisturizing. At the end of the day, it's still a clay mask and I would still need to moisturize. However, I like that it didn't leave my skin feeling tight, because it means it didn't absorb too much oil, leaving just enough natural oils.

It does feel cool on the skin and there was a slight tingling sensation at the end of using the mask. I love that it's an exfoliator and a wash-off mask in one but what puzzles me is that you're not supposed to break black particles (the ones that look like dragon fruit seeds) until you're done with it. Assuming that these seed-like particles are the exfoliators (I'm just assuming because I'm not sure), it would make more sense to break it off at the start because exfoliation comes first before using clay masks to deep cleanse.

After washing off the mask, my skin smelled mildly fruity and I was left with clean looking skin.

What I Don't LIke About It
I love the scent but if it's a synthetic fragrance than I'd prefer that it not have it. Speaking of ingredients that I'd rather avoid, I've Googled the ingredients, and apparently, it used to have propylparaben and methylparaben. However, after (painstakingly) using Google translate on the ingredients which were written in Korean on the box, these two parabens were nowhere to be found on where it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, it does still have phenoxyethanol which is another ingredient I would like to avoid altogether. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid this ingredient altogether.

It also contains talc, which is probably there to absorb excess sebum. Talc is an ingredient to avoid when it comes to baby powder. However, I don't think it would matter much in clay masks since there are no chances (I think) of you breathing in the talc. Although, personally, I think the talc can be removed since the wash-off mask already has kaolin as part of its ingredients and kaolin can absorb excess sebum. 

I was recently selected to be a part of Kita GMP's season 4 reviewers. I received the wash-off mask in exchange for my honest review.
