Let me remind you of my obsession with Korean skincare products again. And specifically with my most favorite and affordable brand Skinfood. I’ve tried different Skin Food products before, and I was really excited to try this one out since I’ve been really happy with my other Skin Food products. Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off is a very mild Exfoliator cum mask which is said to brighten skin and reduce blemish overtime. It also has a very soothing smell that reminds me of flavored rice puddings. It’s a best seller in the Skinfood range and let me tell you why you should get it at once!

What does the Brand Claim about Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off?
Milling rice produces rice bran oil, rice bran powder and rice water, all of which, applied topically, can have smoothing, brightening, hydrating effects on the condition of your skin. Rice is a rich source of Vitamin E, an antioxidant that fights aging and free radical damage, and linoleic acids. Linoleic acids are in the fatty acid family, which is essential to our bodies but is not actually synthesizable; we must consume it. It has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties, softening skin and making it supple. It also provides healing support to skin cell regeneration, making it a potent acne-fighter.
How to Use:
After cleansing, gently massage with ample amount over dry face avoiding eyes and mouth area. Apply evenly and gently scrub. Concentrate around nose area and repeat it using grains. Rinse with lukewarm water after 10 to 15 minutes of massage.
My Experience with Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off
This Mask comes in a small container with a lid. The quantity is around 100 grams. The consistency is thick very much like crushed rice pudding and has a smell that’s a combination of rice and jasmine. The mask has tiny rice particles which act as Exfoliator and overall this product is very moisturizing. I did not have any break outs or side effects using this. It does not give immediate results however, it does make your skin look smooth, soft and dewy right after use. I used it consistently twice a week for two whole months to see improvement in my overall complexion and fading of my blemishes. On the whole it’s a pleasurable experience and even though it takes time it definitely delivers results. The only disappointment was that I was clueless how to apply it initially. Scooping up with hands seemed a bit unhygienic every time and I really wish they had incorporated some kind of applicator with this product. Other than this it’s almost perfect.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
Although I loved this product, I would buy other variations of skin food masks. Each of them is so unique! I can’t wait to try skin food black sugar mask, sesame seeds mask, honey or even strawberry mask! I do recommend you to try it out! Skinfood is a company that will never ever disappoint you no matter what.
