If you want to know more…

This hydrogel patch is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create youthful-looking radiance to the cheek and eye area. It also applies acupressure to support natural circulation and visibly plump skin. Collagen and adenosine help create firm-looking skin.

Unique Ingredients/Material :

Hydrogel Patch

Volufiline : this is a trademarked ingredient that’s made from a combination of a plant extract known as sarsapogenin, which comes from the roots of Anemarrhenae asphodeloides (aka Zhi Mu) and hydrogenated polyisobutene, which is an oil-based excipient. I searched this and a lot of articles came up about its use for breast or buttock enlargement. It has been shown to permanently increase fat production at its area of use causing a plump effect.

Pros :

  • Simple packaging
  • Easy to follow instructions

Cons :

  • Overpriced!!!!
  • Dry patch
  • Lack of effects

My Review :

0/5 stars – don’t waste your money.

Packaging : Simple, plain colours except for the main photo which is a pill – unsure what exactly that has to do with cheek and eye lift though. Easy to tear open. Instructions in English and Korean.

Product : Hydrogel patch comes on a clear plastic film which is removed. The sticky side gets applied onto your skin. I found the patch adhered well but over my nasal bridge – it had poor adherence and was lifting up. The mask felt heavy on the area. It is also a dry mask so it doesn’t feel cooling or relaxing when applied. I made the bad mistake of cleansing my face, applying toner as instructed and then applying this patch as I didn’t want to apply on top of my other skincare products – bad idea because my skin felt dry and tight while this was on. It also apparently has dots on the mask which is meant to apply acupressure to improve circulation and enhance delivery of ingredients – I did not find any effect from the dots.

After removal : Nothing at all besides dry and tight skin! In fact, I think it made it worse because it is dry and requires being peeled off after 30 minutes which stretches the skin over that area which I usually treat delicately!

Following day : Nothing!

Where I purchased it? Cost?
