It’s hard not to ignore the Hanacure mask. With a texture that cracks, and darkens your skin while you wear it, Hanacure mask users have a zombie-like effect in the selfies scattered all over Instagram. With bold claims by users such as Drew Barrymore claiming this mask “changed her life”, it’s definitely a curious topic buzzing in the beauty world. Curious, I set out to answer a few key questions about this mystery mask. What is it, does it work, and should we all get on the waiting list? (yes, there is already a waiting list) Here’s what I found…
So, what exactly is Hanacure?
Inspired by the Lotus flower, a symbol of youthfulness, resilience, and rebirth, South Koreans created this face mask that aimed to help users create youthful, glowing skin in a quick, effective all-in-one approach. The mask is formally called The Hanacure All-In-One Facial. It utilizes naturally-derived plant ingredients, flower extracts, and formulations to combat discolorations, reduce pores and wrinkles, diminish blemishes, dramatically moisturize your skin, and increase the skin’s luminescence.
What’s in it?
Hanacure reminds us that all of our skin is contaminated, through our pores, dirt, and grime that get in and make their home in our skin. When our skin gets built up with this foreign debri, and it may begin to break out in acne, rashes, blemishes, you name it. Exfoliating and cleansing help to clean our skin and reduce daily build up, but it’s not enough to re-create that glowing look we all crave from our youth. This mask goes deeper to draw out impurities, resolidify and tighten the skin. The Hanacure mask contains botanicals included for their ability to sooth the skin. Things like lotus leaf extract, oriental raisin tree extract, green tea extract, honeysuckle flower extract, rosa canina fruit oil extract, peony root extract, sophora root extract are to thank for this clarification step. Using peptides, Hancure claims their masks have “lifting and firming effects work with peptides to combat all other signs of aging, giving you a flawless looking complexion”. Peptides such as nicotinoyl dipeptide-23, nicotinoyl dipeptide-22, acetyl hexapeptide-8, and copper tripeptide-1.
Does it work?
The waiting list is to get the Hanacure mask it out for a few months, is it just for the hype or is it really effective? Using naturally derived ingredients, and peptides, Dermatologist’s haven’t given claim against using this product. All ingredients that Hanacure claims to use are backed by nature to be truly healing, and the many before and after photos seem to speak for themselves. South-Korea has a good reputation for providing superior skin care, and they may have outdone themselves this one. Have you tried Hancure? If so, comment below and tell me what you think! I’d love to hear about your experience.
