Etude House It's Real Pack (Carrot): Review

Before I go on with the formal content of this post, I would like to invite everyone to join my ongoing giveaway. I will be giving away a hair dye from the Japanese brand called Dariya Palty in the shade Milk Tea Brown, which happens to be one of the popular shades they have. It is open internationally so everyone is encouraged to join. :) (You will probably see this introduction in most of my future posts up until the giveaway is over. I hope you don't mind the post by post plug. ^^)

So you would think after I made all the fuss about the general post regarding face masks and face packs, my posts regarding these kinds of products would lessen but here I am with, yet again, another face pack post. This one is from the Korean brand called Etude House It's Real Pack (Carrot): Brightening Care.
To be honest, the after result isn't anything exciting as one would expect. The container did say brightening but it didn't really do much of that, in my opinion. I actually didn't want to create a separate post about this but I did mention (in the post linked above) that if there was something different about a mask/pack I've tried, then I will be doing a separate post on it. To keep my word, I am now in front of my laptop typing a blog post.

So let me tell you more about the product. As stated, the end result wasn't really anything new. It left my skin soft and moisturized but it didn't stay true to its claim, which is (supposedly) to brighten complexion. One reason I can think of is because I only have one of this face packs (It was a freebie from an online purchase. I really want to give my thanks to the seller but I forgot which seller gave me this. But dear seller, if you are reading this, please send me a message so I can at least link you here.  ^^) so I was only able to use it once. Maybe you have to use it regularly to see brightening results, but frankly, who am I to conclude that? I can only vouch for its immediate results since as I've said, I was only able to use it once.

What's different about this product, though, is its thickness and consistency. I've tried many wash off face packs before and this is by far the thickest type I've ever used. It's very creamy, almost chunky with a little bit of an oatmeal feel and because of this, it is pretty hard to wash off after 20 minutes. Nevertheless, I didn't hate the product. On the other hand, I also wasn't particularly fond of the item.

To sum it all up, my thoughts on this product are just so-so. It didn't strike as a must-have skin care item for me so I guess it's safe to say that I wouldn't be buying myself one of these (I'm not even sure if it's still in the market) in the future. Although, if given the chance, I wouldn't pass on trying it out if I didn't have to pay for it. In short, I think it is an okay product but not worth shelling out money for.
with love, Anna Luisa
