South Koreans are zealous with their skincare routine and one of the latest skincare product that has gone viral on social media platforms is the Skin’s Boni Yogurt Mask Pack. Launched in 2016, it is the maiden product by the Korean skincare brand and is raved about because of how it is able to deliver radiant skin right after usage. It is apparently so popular in Korea, it is constantly sold out.
While I’ve heard that eating yogurt gives health benefits, I’ve never actually considered that yogurt might be good for your skin when applied directly. So, for me, this is quite a curious product to try.
To see if it really lives up to its hype, I’ve been diligently trying it. Read on to see what this product is all about and whether I think it really works.
How does it work?
The Skin’s Boni Yogurt Mask Pack contains good lactobacilli, which helps your skin to stay hydrated and moisturised. It also contains lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. It gently exfoliates your skin, setting the foundation for a natural glow from within. Additionally, it helps to prevent breakouts, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, it creates a better and healthier skin by maintaining it at an optimal pH environment.
Does it really work?
The mask comes in a really cute Yogurt Bottle packaging. There is a piece of thin, translucent, beige-coloured mask within each pack. To be exact, the mask is soaked in a beige-looking serum that smells incredibly like fruit yogurt. (It smells amazing!) Apart from the colour difference – most sheet masks are white – the mask is incredibly similar to other Korean sheet masks I’ve tried. It adheres snugly and actually fits my face pretty well.
I applied the mask after cleansing my face and left it on for 30 minutes, while I spend the time on YouTube. Immediately after I removed the mask, I pat my face lightly with my fingers to ensure that all the serum was absorbed by my skin.
What I liked about this mask is that the serum is absorbed very quickly into my skin. Other sheet masks I’ve tried left my face feeling sticky and wet even after I removed the sheet, but Skin’s Boni’s was nothing like this. There was almost no physical trace of serum left within ten minutes of removing the sheet. My face felt comfortable and hydrated, but not sticky.
The biggest plus point of this Yogurt Mask Pack is that it significantly rejuvenated my dull and dry skin. The traces of sleep debt and stress were masked by the brighter skin, and my complexion looked more even. My makeup applied more smoothly the next day as well.
Time for the million-dollar question: Will I give this mask a try again? Definitely! For a price of less than SGD10, my skin is visibly brighter and it feels amazing. It’s no wonder why sheet masks are called a lazy girl’s facial.
