Happy Wellness Wednesday, ya’ll!! I am not from the South, but I lived there for 2 years in college, so I think I have a small right to say “ya’ll”. Plus, it is a very blogger thing to say, so call me a follower! Anyway, I hope you’re having a great week! I am so busy! Between blogging, keeping up with my meal prepping, cooking dinners, going to PT, and my other doctor appointments, I’ve been working from the moment I wake up to when my head hits the pillow. My hubs has been, too! We are just go, go, go! I think we need another vacation already! Yikes. But, I’m so thankful to be feeling well enough right now to do anything at all! Grateful as can be 🙂
I wanted to share this at-home facial that I’ve been using for almost a year now and it is seriously the most amazing skincare product I’ve ever tried! It’s called Hannacure, “The All-In-One Facial”. It’s from a company in South Korea and has taken the beauty world by storm in the last year! You may have already heard of it, but if you haven’t tried it, trust me, it’s a must! I don’t make any commissions or money from this post, this is just a pure recommendation of a product I love that I want to share with you! (As I always say, you can rest assured I will not share products on here that I don’t actually use and love – not going to ever lead you astray for a small payout and it’s not worth my time either!)
So, the Hannacure mask works so differently than anything you have ever seen! There are two components to it. The Gelling Solution and the Lifting Serum. You first open the lip of the Gelling Solution just slightly in the corner, not the entire way. Then, you open the Lifting Serum, pour it into the Gelling Solution, and close the lid back up. You hold it down with your finger, and shake it gently back and forth for 30 seconds. Then, you take the brush they provide in each kit and apply the mask to your face, neck, and hands! What happens after is SHOCKING! HAHA! No joke.
So, once the mask is on your face for a few minutes, you will feel things start to tighten up. You can fan your face to accelerate this. As it tightens, your face will start to contort and look incredibly different than you could ever imagine, but don’t panic! It goes back to normal! It gets so tight that you can’t move your face or even talk! My nose even gets distorted! I love seeing my husband’s face when I have the mask on, haha! He always tries so hard not to be weirded out but I can definitely tell he is freaked out by it. I was too the first time I did it! Here is a picture of Drew Berrymore so you can get an idea! Haha!
The Hannacure facial mask promises to get you immediate, visible results. I can tell after one use that my skin is tighter, my pores are smaller, my fine lines and wrinkles are very softened, and my breakouts get so much better by the next day! I also feel like my jaw line looks tighter and my skin looks overall brighter. It is an anti-aging, clarifying, lifting, firming, brightening, contouring, pore-tightening, and skin tone evening mask! All of that in one mask! YES PLEASE!
I used these twice a week to start with because I was having breakouts that I couldn’t get under control. I had read reviews about how this helped so many people clear up their skin. Sure enough, my breakouts very quickly got under control, and then I could go to using the masks once a week to keep them this way. The other benefits of the mask are obvious, too! My skin looks plumper and more hydrated! It also helps my brown spots look less intense. Any sagging I see definitely improves, too. I’ve seen photos of people who have had under eye bags that now look so much better!
You leave the mask on for 30 minutes, and then you can moisturize. The kits used to come with samples of their Nano Emulsion Serum, which I was obsessed with! I was upset when I realized they didn’t sell it. BUT, recently, they finally launched this product and it’s for sale. It’s like the icing on top of the cake! I woke up the next morning with the softest, glowing, baby skin I have ever had! All of the celebrities and bloggers (myself included) swear by this stuff and I can see why! You MUST check out their Instagram testimonial page here. I mean, WHAAAT?! It’s so good right?! It’s $110 for a kit of 4 treatments, so it’s not cheap, but I can understand why. This stuff seriously works.
So, how does it work? The brand hasn’t divulged all of their secrets, obviously, but the ingredients give us a little hint. There are four different peptides and lots of botanical extracts in it. Peptides are known for firming the skin. Botanicals are great antioxidants, help with redness, brightening, and moisturizing among other things. It has green tea, honeysuckle, and their logo, the lotus flower in it. It was inspired by the Lotus Flower, which is a Korean symbol for rebirth and purity!
While the brand keeps their formula private, we do know it contains four different peptides (known for their skin firming abilities) and several botanical extracts including green tea, honeysuckle, and of course lotus leaf extract.
Here is how Town & Country explains it: “As it is applied, the carbon dioxide in the air fuses into the formula, which they’ve dubbed the “OctoLift” technology. The reaction causes the mask to solidify onto skin, creating an intense tightening effect, which theoretically pulls grime and toxins out of pores.”
What’s even more exciting is that this a clean beauty option! It is free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates. It is also not tested on animals and is hypoallergenic! Winning!
So, my final thoughts? It’s worth it! My breakouts are under control completely when I use this once a week. My skin is plumper, more moisturized, my under eyes look better, and my jaw line is firmer, which is an area that drives me crazy. It makes my skin feel fresh, not dry and flaky as it usually feels. I definitely notice it is brighter, too! Now, I’m just waiting for them to come out with a full body mask! LOL!
