Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask EX

The Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask EX harnesses the power of White Mulberry Extract, Walnut Extract and Hyaluronic Acid to deliver nourishment and reinvigorate the skin during sleeping hours.

Price: ₩ 52,000 for 120 ml
Made in: Korea

This creamy (think moisturiser!) mask forms a barrier that feels both comforting and protective. It feels rich but there is no heaviness to it at all as it doesn't clog the pores up. The other wonderful thing about this mask is the faint gingery herbaceous scent.

I haven't seen any adverse effects from this nor have I seen any improvements... it has been four months of on and off use, and my skin looks the same as always, which is a complete 180 from what other users have experienced.

Reviewers mentioned that it is incredibly effective and, and they also noticed overnight results. Maybe it is because mine is the EX version (supposedly an upgraded formulation)? I did a comparison and found that it contains far less botanical ingredients than the version without EX tagged on it.

Without any outstanding benefits, it falls into a want, instead of need category. Get it if you have got moolah to spare. Otherwise, stick with some others like Laneige's Water Sleeping Mask.

The damage on this one? RM 180. It is sold at a number of places including Mid Valley Megamall, Pavilion, Sunway Pyramid and Suria KLCC.
