ALL THE #PIBULOVERS THROW YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR NOW. Hey hey hey, it’s #Pibubeauty time again. Over this week we did a big talking of the super duper masks from Seoul born-and-raised brand Pibu Beauty. It’s been all about the smart premium sheet mask brand committed to take care of your glow through a set of all-natural technology-ignited set of products. If you are like us, you might be wondering… are they really that good? Lovely Milena could not resist and tested Green Tea Purifying Clay Mask by Pibu Beauty for you.

LET THE SKIN DO THE TALKING. This is the brand’s philosophy in a nutshell. This is what we wrote last Saturday when introducing the special quasi-spa treatment from our skin’s friends Pibu Beauty (Link), the new super-premium K-Beauty brand to be landed on miloon.eu. Our friends at Pibu, named the brand after the Korean word for “skin” to stress how it should always be the center of attention. In fact a healthy, hydrated and bright skin is your ‘business card’ and if you want to preserve its beauty, taking care of it should become your daily ritual. 

Soon after we introduced all the masks from this cute brand the many effect each one delivers, having good care to  point down every ingredients and how each one of the work to deliver the promise. This goes hand in hand with Pibu’s karma: a real embodiment of the Korean approach to care. The brand summarize it like this:

 „Skin first, make-up second”. 

Healthy, moisturized and radiant skin is the most important factor and it should always be the center of attention. Makeup (and everything else) comes after and is only our choice,  not a necessity. In this sense Green Tea Purifying Clay Mask makes no exception.

MY SKIN.

Combination wit dry patches.

I am big fan of of purifying masks, especially clay ones for example A’Pieu Gray Mud Mask (Read my review here). Today I want to review my new hero mask that for sure will cover a special place in my the bathroom shelf of my hearth 😛

Let’s start by saying that this mask takes a little bit more than the other masks, as it need to sit on your face about 30 to 40 minutes as the clay need to dry out. Start by cleaning your  face and pat it dry. Extract the mask from the pack: start with the upper part. Remove the protective film (thin one) and place the upper part on the face, matching the position of the eyes. Then remove the other side of the film (thick one). Smooth out and gently stretch the mask to ensure a perfect fit. Repeat with the lower piece, slightly overlapping the upper piece. As said, leave it on for 30-40 minutes or until you feel a tightening effect and the mask is dry. Now, gently peel off the sheet mask, starting from the bottom. Rinse with lukewarm water to remove any powdery residue. Of course you can follow it with your favourite moisturizer for extra care.

Remember: Before using, apply cream on your eyebrows and mouth to allow easy removal. The longer you keep the mask on your face, the more effective it is for the pore care. The recommended use is once or twice a week.

This mask comes in two pieces as usually all the clay sheet masks do. It has natural and super light scent of clay. T I really love the effects of this mask, because it just leaves your skin so clear, smooth and mat- it take off all the excess of sebum, also from your pores.

EFFECT.

After your face is really smooth and pores are visibly smaller.

It doesn’t make your skin dry or irritated. With A’Pieu gray mud mask usually after taking the mask off I had a little red skin, because of strength how this mask was adhering to my skin.

WHAT I LOVE.

– Organic and vegan.

– Nice soft scent.

– Clear skin after using.

– Less visible pores, clean and mat skin.

– Fresh and smooth looking skin,

– It is not painful to taking this mask off after it gets dry ( but be careful to don’t apply it over your eyebrows!)

WHAT I DON’T LINK.

It’s perfect. It’s even cruelty free. Only a monster could hate something about it :O

VERDICT.

Could anybody marry a mask? As I am totally loving Green Tea Purifying Clay Mask.

I also love how my other skincare steps are absorbing after this kind of mask. My lifesaver routine include Green Tea Purifying Clay Mask, Raw Sauce by May Coop + A by BOM Eye Serum. I feel like suggesting this to anybody as it is my one way ticket to clear, glowing and healthy skin.
