When it comes to beauty, there’s nothing more important than healthy skin. If you don’t take care of your skin, no amount of makeup will make it look good. Since my 20s, I’ve learned a lot about skin care and what it takes to keep it looking beautiful, which is why I adopted a proper skin care routine and have been wearing sunscreen every day since my 20s. Recently, two products that I’ve been loving in the skin care department are oils and sheet masks. Both do such wonders for my skin that they’ve earned themselves a permanent spot in my routine. So when AMOREPACIFIC sent me two of their new skin care products to try out, I couldn’t have been more excited. So what are these products? The Time Response Targeted Eye Masques and the Pure Green Tea Seed Treatment Oil (limited edition, I might add).
The Time Response Collection is the first skin care line that adopted a clinically-proven and targeted approach to reversing and protecting skin from the signs of aging thanks to AMOREPACIFIC’s botanicals (Green Tea Stems Cells, Saponin and EGCG). Together they work to stimulate essential genes and restores collagen production, control melanin regulation and deliver intense hydration. Essentially, it works to give your skin optimal health and reverse aging on a genetic level.
The Time Response Targeted Eye Masque is a luxurious textured mask that works over a 24-our period to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes. It can also be used on other areas of the face to firm and smooth skin and give it an overall more youthful appearance. What are the other benefits? Well, it brightens skin, regenerates cells and corrects wrinkles (thanks to green tea water), helps skin retain more moisture (thanks to thianine, green tea amino acid) and instantly reduces puffiness and dark circles (thanks to caffeine).
I have to say that I really love the texture of the masks. They are soft and jelly-like in texture and stay on the skin so well. Plus, I just feel that those types of masks do so much good for my skin. The scent of the serum is light and pleasant. Just tear open the package, remove the backing and apply the mask. Let it work its magic for 10-15 minutes, remove the masks and work the extra serum all over your face and neck. The results after just one use truly are amazing. After a late night celebrating with (a little too much) rosé, these did wonders on my dark puffy eyes.
The Pure Green Tea Seed Treatment Oil if the first highly concentrated oil of its kind. It works to restore the skin’s natural luminosity, deeply hydrate skin, and repair environmental damage. The oil is extracted from green tea seed harvested on AMORE PACIFIC’s private green tea field on Juju Island, off the coast of South Korea. Pretty impressive stuff, if you ask me! Although you can use this oil any time of day, it’s recommended to use it especially at night when your skin is most active at repairing itself. Plus, the scent is so soothing and calming, it,s just a treat to apply. The oil absorbs super quickly so there’s no worries that it will stain your sheets. Just a few drops pressed into your face and neck and voilà!
The Time Response Targeted Eye Masque is available at Neiman Marcus for $140 USD and the Pure Green Tea Seed Treatment is available at Sephora for $195 USD. The price tag for both these products is a little steep, but think of it as an investment for your skin. When it comes to skin care that actually works, sometimes it’s worth treating yourself. Don’t you agree?
