Do you often use face masks? Personally, I use facial sheet masks at least twice a week as they are one of my favorite skin care products. Applying a good face mask can make the skin soft, super hydrated, and feel so relaxed before sleep.
Recently, I’ve tried some hot-selling face masks from Rainbow Beauty Cosmetics, 3W Clinic, and Maycreate. They are very budget-friendly but I was not quite satisfied with their quality. Then I came across Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask as a recommendation from many people. It is no less popular than those hot-selling face masks but it’s been praised a lot for both quality and price.
Features: What’s in me
Before buying Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask, I had no idea about this Banobagi brand. I googled the name and found that Banobagi is actually a plastic surgery clinic located in Gangnam, Seoul. And they are quite well known in Vietnam after the Change Life reality show on VTV.
I bought Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask on Lazada with the price of 169,000VND for 10 sheets. It came in a nice box just like a present. I got the red box which was the firming type but there were actually 4 types inside. Each type has a different purpose:
- Red – Vitamin A (Lifting)
- Blue – Vitamin E (Hydrating)
- Yellow – Vitamin C (Whitening )
- Green – Vitamin B (Relaxing)
The highlight of Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask is “Liposome vitamin”. Thanks to Mr. Google, I found that liposomes are widely used in today’s skin care as they help the skin to absorb ingredients more effectively and they also help reduce the price of ingredients.
Get to know me better
I tried all 4 types of Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask in two weeks, 2 random types per week. Each type comes with a different fruit smell. The fragrance is soft and relaxing, it’s not too strong like the fragrance of some hot-selling face masks I’ve used before.
The mask sheets are made from 100% cotton, they are super thin and translucent, but very sturdy and resilient. The mask fits my face and doesn’t slip around. It is soaked full of the essence in the package. Thanks to the jelly texture and the 100% cotton sheet, it can prevent the serum from evaporating too quickly and help the skin to absorb the ingredients better.
If you love to have a more refreshing and cooling feeling when using the mask, especially in summer, just leave the masks in the fridge a few hours before use. I usually apply my face mask at night 1 to 2 hours before bedtime and leave the mask on my face for 25-30 minutes, more than the instruction advised. When I took the mask out, the mask was still dripping wet and there was still a lot of essence left in the packet, so I applied some leftover onto my neck and arms and massaged my skin gently so the essence could absorb into my skin better. My skin was so soft, smooth and super hydrated afterwards. I often wash it off a little bit after use because I’m a bit uncomfortable with the tacky feeling and lots of serum on my face.
The next morning, my skin felt really soft, smooth, hydrated, and the T-zone is less oily as well. The essence seems to absorb into my skin pretty well. However, I do not see any firming or whitening effects. Perhaps I need to use Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask more regularly, rather than only in 2 weeks?
Pros & Cons: My best and worst
- Nice packaging
- Good quality mask sheet.
- Plentiful jelly essence
- Refreshing and hydrating your skin immediately
- Making skin soft and smooth.
- Reasonable price
- Doesn’t have other effects like whitening, lifting as it claims
Rating: Judge me
Nice packaging from the box to the masks, especially the impressive capsule pill picture in front.
Reasonable price, can be used for a long time without hurting the wallet.
Excellent moisturizing effect, it keeps your skin moisturized and hydrated at least 1 day after use. However, no firming or whitening effects can be seen within 2 weeks.
I’ve tried some similarly priced masks but they seem not to be as good as Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask. I will definitely repurchase it. If you have dry skin, this is one of the best face masks you should try for hydration and moisturizing.
Finale: Why me?
Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask is one of the good face masks at the good price that I’ve ever tried. The firming and whitening effects can possibly be seen after using for a long time but at least it does help hydrate your skin, remove excess oils and also give you the feeling of relaxation after a busy workday. So, how could you say No to Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Mask? 🙂
