Ever wondered why Koreans have that porcelain-like skin and us Filipinas don’t? Well, I share the same sentiments. We could all blame it to the difference in the climate and whatnot but I think at some extent, it all boils down to skincare. Koreans take these stuff to heart and we, myself at least, don’t take it half as seriously. To bridge the gap, I’m trying out one of their regimen – regular use of at-home facial masks. And what better way to start (again) than with a brand that is well-loved by the Koreans, Dermal. Yeeah, they recently reached the Philippines’ shores and is now exclusively available at Beauty Bar branches. πŸ™‚
Product Description:
(Taken from Dermal Collagen Essence Pamphlet)
Dermal Collagen Essence Masks are already pre-moistened. It is especially formulated with high quality ingredients that penetrate the skin effectively to deliver essential nutrients. The mask comes in 29 different flavors that moisturizes, clarifies, regenerates, brightens and firms according to what your skin needs.

I’ve had my fair share of Korean facial masks but what really caught my attention was the insane range of variants that Dermal Collagen Essence has to offer. And with each variant comes their own benefit, of course. We’re very much familiar with flavors like Collagen, Green Tea, Royal Jelly, Milk, Aloe, Cucumber and the like – they’re all too common. Dermal has those and a lot more like Syn-ake (for firming), Bee Venom (for soothing and repair), Charcoal (for moisture) and even Vegetable Placenta (for regeneration). That’s how exotic the variants are!
TIP: Place the mask packet in the refrigerator and allow it to chill for a good 10-20 minutes before use. This make it even more relaxing and refreshing when used especially during hot seasons like this one. πŸ˜‰
I love how the mask sheet fits snugly on my face – it doesn’t drench my hair on the sides nor does it cover my nostrils. Plus points for the flaps that cover the eyes for the added coverage. Now I don’t have to use a separate mask for my undereye area. Another thing to love about this is that it has just the right amount of essence so I won’t feel bad throwing out the excess in the packet after using the mask. No mess and dripping on my pillow or neck, too!
Honestly, I haven’t noticed any difference between the variants. I’ve tried 4 out of 29 flavors and I can say that they are all equally refreshing to use and effective in delivering moisture to the skin. Immediately after use, my skin feels incredibly soft, smooth and supple. In some cases, although temporary, Dermal Collagen Essence Facial Masks even makes my face appear brighter. Dermal masks are collagen-packed which increases skin’s elasticity and glow. It is rewarding to see my skin look well-rested despite all the stress. Using facial sheet masks every now and then to pamper myself at home at a very reasonable cost is something I won’t grow tired of doing. And in time, I’m sure they would show their permanent, long-term effects. πŸ™‚
