Skin care is an ever-evolving science. It requires the right balance – diet, water, exercise, supplements, products – to have a glowing, soft skin. Take it from someone who spent more than 50k bucks on getting his skin repaired, it is a tedious job.
If you are taking the right diet and doing everything right, but are still looking for the best available products, then you don’t need to look any further. We all know that Korean skin products are very effective when it comes to rejuvenating your skin. But since we live in Pakistan, it is tough to get hold of them. Not anymore. The Skin MASKuerade is a small-scale e-commerce retailer that gives you the ease of using the best available Korean and Western Skin care products that you always dreamed of using. I (along with my friend) got a chance to test their products and we thought of doing a small review of how the products turned out.
Warning: EVERYONE HAVE DIFFERENT SKIN TYPES. IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOUR SKIN NEEDS, DO NOT BUY THE PRODUCTS.
With the warning aside, here we go.
Time Revolution Night Repair by MISSHA
Time Revolution Night Repair by MISSHAis a non-sticky, skin hydrating, and an absorbent serum. As it is a used as a repairing serum, therefore it takes a lot of time to gauge its effectiveness. Moreover, it is quite economical as compared to other serums that are available in the market today. And it is organically made that makes it all the more useful. For the best results, apply this serum at night, after cleansing and toning, before moisturizing.

Tangerine Vita C Oil-Free Liquid Cleanser by INNISFREE
When you first apply this cleanser it feels like you are applying an oil for your face. But as you massage gently you feel the oil-free properties of the cleanser. It nourishes and cleans your face by going deep into the pores. As it is completely oil-free, it is easier to clean with water. Just wash your face once and rise with warm water before patting it dry. You will feel your skin glow after you wash and pat dry. However, if your skin is sensitive to sun (as we live in Karachi, our skins are sensitive to sun), you need to be extra careful as the cleanser contains Vitamin C. You should use a proper sunblock for your skin when going out. You can use any brand and a suitable SPF for your skin.

Just a note before you order:
- Skin care is tedious and long-term job. You just cannot believe that you will apply a mask, sleep at night, and wake up like Sunny Leone. No. It does not work like that. You have to give your skin the due care it needs. Eat the right food. Exercise at the right time and give it the correct amount of hydration it needs. All the skin care products are supplements and can only complement your lifestyle.
- All the views mentioned above are from personal experiences. Before buying any product, make sure you know what you are buying. Read about it on the internet. Inquire from the seller. Read the reviews on blogs. Search on Youtube. Most importantly, understand your skin type. Purchase these products ONLY when you are 100% sure about what they do and their properties.
