Try-out period : 2 weeks; once a week
Personal take : I was actually excited to finally trying the so-called Vampire pack which has been trending on the Korean social media platforms a while back. But as the mask was drying up on my face, the “pulling” effect as the mask transits from moist to dry was a little….uncomfortable (read: painful).

My sensitive skin was a little…red after rinsing it away and on the second day, my BB cushion did not sat nicely on my skin and it appeared patchy.

Well, I considered using it just like a normal 9 mins wash-off mask (just before it dries completely) but then again, it would defeat the whole purpose of it being a “vampire mask”. Right?

Will i recommend it? : No, despite the obvious after effect, it feels just a little painful when the mask is drying – when it’s transiting from wet to dry and the mask is “pulling” the skin
