Cuscos Ruby Lifting Pack

Packed with Glacier Water (mineral-rich hydration), Pomegranate Extract (a potent antioxidant) and Hydrolyzed Collagen (improves skin elasticity), Ruby Lifting Pack promises to turn back the hands of time for younger-looking skin.

There is even some before-and-after pictures (impossibly hard to do when it comes to skincare)!

Name: Cuscos 쿠스코스 Ruby Lifting Pack 루비 리프팅 팩
Price: RM 218 for 50 ml
Made in: Korea

It has a lovely floral mixed with citrus kind of smell - one that immediately comforts. Using it is pretty simple: drizzle it on, let it dry, splash with water, massage a little and then rinse off. It may sound like a lot of steps when I lay it out like that but it really is not. Seriously. Altogether, it takes less than 10 minutes, and most of the time is spent idling on my mobile waiting for it dry.

My face feels tautened and firmer without a discomforting tight sensation. The results are more tactile than visual, if that makes sense? The effect is more pronounced on my hands, where the lines vanished and the tone lightened by a shade (refer to this post)! Fair enough considering my face receives way more pampering compared to my hands.



I plan to redouble my efforts seeing that it has the potential to make the real life me look as if I have been touched by the Blur filter on Photoshop. Instead of once a week, I shall ply it on thrice fortnightly. And maybe even more often if my purse permits it, haha! As Helena Rubinstein famously declared, "There are no ugly women, only lazy ones."

I strongly believe that this pack is essential for days when no amount of makeup helps. And before I sign off, remember to look out for Cuscos in Korean dramas! It has been making appearances in Cheongdam-dong Scandal, SBS's daytime series.
