In late April 2015, I have finally tried it on my face for a duration of 1 to 2 week plus--- omg, it broke me out, so I stopped immediately.

Since I quite love the texture, I have decided to go for a second trial (30th June 2015). On the second night my face was still okay. Some pimples popped out and I suspected of my late sleeping hours. It got worse so I decided to stop again.

My sisters who also bought and tried the product also experienced the breakout.
My sister skin is more on the dry side. While my skin is oily (on T zone) and combination skin.
I guess Korean moisturizers/masks are sometimes too moisturized for us who live in tropical countries (1 season place). Thus, if you really really want to try it,  please do not apply too much or you may try alternating between 2 different moisturizers.


No. Although I like the texture BUT I already gave it two trials and it broke me out. Item advisable for those with winter season.
