NEO I VIEW Randy Kang
Plump & Hydrate UP!
with Black Volume Cream

 

When Laneige introduced Water Sleeping Mask to the Korean cosmetic market, K-beauty bloggers responded with fervent enthusiasm. I mean, it was REALLY REALLY convenient - you don’t even have to put the sheet mask on your skin for 20 min! You may apply it like cream and go to sleep. It is the first cream-type sleeping mask among Korean cosmetic products, and the most sold one as well. (they sold over 20 million jars worldwide.)

After Laneige, in 2012, the spotlight moved onto NEOGEN Code9 Black Volume Cream with innovative design and interesting texture ( Black! I mean the cream is black jelly!!), they have become best seller of the year 2012 in CJ home shopping channel and NEOGEN became a major cosmetic brand!

So much for the history, let’s take a look at the product. 0^◇^0)/

First Impression

 One undeniable thing to say about this cream is that product design is really chic and convenient. The container can be placed in the holder, and you can put rubber spatula right next to it. It smells floral but very light and pleasant. (Not“Guerlain” like strong, powdery floral). The cream texture is more like a thick jelly •﹏•, and you would need (and also it’s recommended by the producer) rubber spatula to spread on your skin because if you use hands, it will be absorbed into your hands. (This is not an exaggeration. Check out the video and you will know what I am talking about.) I would recommend wearing thick layer if you want to use this as a sleeping mask. It will extremely hydrate your skin (You will feel like you wear the sheet mask for 2 hours on next morning) If you want to use this in the morning, just try as little as possible because it does not absorb really quick.

Ingredient Check

I couldn’t see especially harmful ingredients but I do not like about the complexity of this cream because they put too many plant extracts.~^O^~ So if you are allergic to any plants, please check out their ingredient list thoroughly (They advertise themselves that they added more than 79 extracts, but I really don’t know why.) They put commonly used moisturizing agents such as glycerin and butylene glycol. They used hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, increasing the bio-availability of this incredible moisturizer. I think this stabilized, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is the unique selling point of this cream.

 

After Thought

As they claimed, it is a marvelous moisturizing sleeping mask. It excellently hydrates my skin, (even in the morning) and slightly plumps the fine lines. I could actually see the visible difference on the second day, my skin was nicely hydrated and visibly dewy.

Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Before falling in love with K-beauty, and way before it changing my life and skin forever, I was a very lazy person when talking skincare routines. I had this 3-steps set my dermatologist prescribed but I was not consistent, and washing my face turned into something controlled by my mood. Now, looking back to those dark days I just can't believe how many times I went to bed with makeup on or applied my treatment cream without first washing my face, something that now just thinking about it makes me feel like I’m inside a horror movie (yes, I’m dramatic like that).

A Spray Serum Can Be The Answer To All Your Winter Skincare Needs

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many years I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.

The one and only sheet mask you need for your winter routine

For the past few years thousands or thousands of new beauty trends have showed up. There are ones that last, others that come and go, but there’s one trend that arrived in this world to stay for eternity: sheet masks. At this point I think we all have tried at least 1 sheet masks in our lives, am I right? There are really simple ones, luxury ones, for brightening, for aging, for wrinkles, for hydration… there’s a sheet mask for everyone and their mothers out there. But there’s so much more to these godsends than just a cotton layer you put on your face and take selfies with.
