Thank you, 12th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers!

And just like that, we are wrapping up another round of Beautiful Pioneers! A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the 12th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers—it was your contribution that made this round another great success!

//

For the 12th round of Beautiful Pioneers, we offered up Son&Park’s Beauty Gel along with their Beauty Full Sheet Mask series—in Soothing and Clean. The focus of these items is not only to nourish the skin but they can also help to prep skin for makeup application.

Without further ado, here is a report on what we got from our Beautiful Pioneers:

2. Son&Park Beauty Gel

WHAT:

A light moisture gel with hydrolyzed collagen capsules that bursts upon application to promote skin elasticity and reduce fine lines. Its non-greasy formula creates the perfect base for your foundation to fix upon for long lasting makeup.

WHEN:

Use morning or night after applying toner.

HOW:

Pump out an adequate amount and gently massage all over the skin. Tap to aid absorption.

REACTION:

-Beauty Gel-

The Beauty had a lot to live up to.

2. Son & Park Beauty Full Mask – Soothing Type 

WHAT:

A fast-acting primer mask that only requires 5 minutes! This mask contains Bamboo, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, and Phyto Cooling Complex to help soothe, nourish, and revitalize the skin. 

WHEN:

Use in your morning or night routine. Use it in the morning as a primer mask for seamless makeup application!

HOW:

2. Open the product and evenly place the mask on your face, avoiding the eye and mouth area.

3. Remove the mask after 5 minutes.

4. Gently tap skin to help adsorb the serum.

3. Son & Park Beauty Full Mask – Clean Type

A fast-acting primer mask that only requires 5 minutes! This mask contains AHA Extract Flowers and Centella Asiatica Extract to remove dead skin cells and moisturize the skin for a smooth texture. This environmental-friendly mask sheet is made from 100% natural microfiber.

WHEN:

Use in your morning or night routine. Use it in the morning as a primer mask for seamless makeup application!

HOW:

1. After washing your face, apply a toner.

2. Open the product and evenly place the mask on your face, avoiding the eye and mouth area.

3. Remove the mask after 5 minutes.

4. Gently tap skin to help adsorb the serum.

SNIPPETS:

Here are some interesting thoughts by a few of our reviewers:

It might not be widely known but Son&Park is actually a makeup brand as much as a skincare brand. Their philosophy utilizes good skincare to create the perfect base for make up application. Our beautiful pioneers put these products to the test with additional consideration to make up. They reported that the Beauty Gel absorbs quickly to moisturize the skin without leaving behind any stickiness. The product did not pill when applying foundation and even helped their makeup last longer throughout the day. One concern was the that this product might not be as intensely hydrating as traditional moisturizers, however this makes for a perfect summer moisturizer. The Beauty Full Mask in “Soothing” and “Calm” are primer masks that quickly hydrates the skin in the morning while you prepare for your day. Our group of testers noted that the masks were too short and did not cover their forehead but one reviewer mentioned that this allowed for her to style her hair in the morning without worrying about the essence getting into her hair line.

An iconic #kbeauty product is the @sonandparkofficial Beauty Water. It’s well loved and coveted by many. The lesser known sister though is the Beauty Gel*, a light, hydrating, multi-use gel. I’ve had almost two weeks to test out this beautiful bubbly gel, using it every morning as a serum. The wonderful thing about this product is it can be used as a thick toner, light serum, or a pre-makeup primer. The gel is light and absorbent, leaving a smooth finish with zero stickiness. Featuring rose flower and evening primrose oils, witch hazel water, and hydrolyzed collagen to soften and plump a skin. This does contain alcohol as the second ingredient, as well as a bevy of essential oils, so I wouldn’t recommend this if you are sensitive to either of those. This is mostly scentless, though does have a whiff of alcohol upon application. Even with the alcohol, this hasn’t dried my skin out. If anything I’ve found it very hydrating and am enjoying using it. I think it will be wonderful in the summer for a quick boost of hydration, even during the day The Beauty Full masks* are designed to be effective in as little as five minutes, hydrating, brightening, and plumping quickly. So far I’ve tried the Clean Type Mask, with AHA extract and Centella to gently exfoliate and smooth. If you swipe to the last photo you can see the fit of this. My only complaint is the forehead, I know I have a large one but this is one SHORT mask. That’s my only complaint about it though. I left it on for 10 and found my skin to be bright and soft after, with no irritation from the AHA. I could definitely see myself reaching for these in the mornings, they’re perfect for makeup prep. . . . . . . . *pr gifted by @cupidrop

[SHEET MASK REVIEW] . . I have 2 masks reviews for you and I will keep them short and sweet! . . [First Mask] @sonandparkofficial Beauty Full Mask (Soothing Type) is made from bamboo material and contains lots of botanical extracts such as peppermint, rose, agave to name a few. . [Second Mask] @sonandparkofficial Beauty Full Mask (Clean Type) is made from 100% microfiber sheet and contains gentle exfoliating agents such as AHA. It is also formulated with botanical ingredients such as centella asiatica extract, rose water, hibiscus flower extract, and tea tree extract to name a few. . . These masks are actually pretty innovative. It is designed to be worn while getting ready and the smaller fit will not interfere with styled hair. So if the fit is super small don't be alarmed. It makes the perfect mask to wear while drying/styling hair. . I have tried both mask and although it does indicate as 5 minute mask it actually does have slightly longer masking duration if you choose. I had the mask on comfortably for about 10 minutes and the mask did not feel dry. After removal,skin felt hydrated, slightly had cooling effect that resulted in nice matte finish. It is really an ideal product to have it handy for mornings you feel the need for extra boost. There was slight medicinal/chemical/alcohol scent that was not the most pleasant scent but on the brighter side, the scent does dissipate pretty quickly. . Overall, really enjoyed this mask and the finish is really an ideal as morning mask. . . [Availability] They are available on @cupidrop website and retails for $2.50 each. . [Disclaimer] Thank you so much @cupidrop for letting me be a part of #12thgenerationbeautifulpioneers . . #kbeauty #sonandpark #sheetmaskreview #cupidrop #beautifulpioneers #kbeautyskincare #sheetmasking #beautifullmask #beautyfull #beautifulpioneers #abcommunity #sheetmaskaddict #morningroutine .

Happy #TextureTuesday! 💕 . . Today I wanted to post about another amazing product I received from @cupiddrop. I was selected as their 12th Generation Beautiful Pioneer to try @sonandparkoffical 's Beauty Gel, Bauty Full Mask Soothing & Bauty Full Mask Clean. . . I'm going to start this with Son&Park's Beauty Gel. As you've seen in my post a few days ago about the jelly spray moisturizer, this is pretty similar except you pump the gel out instead of spraying. After cleansing my face this is to be used as my daily moisturizer. . . 🌿 My first impressions of this was wow, this is so cool. Moisturizers of the future is no longer a cream but a jelly like gel consitancy that not only absorbs into my skin quickly. But it leaves it feeling hydrated and moisturized throughout the day. Although this does contain many different kinds of oils, it does not make me more oily wearing this under my makeup throughout the day. My only con about this product is that it does have a heavy scent of alcohol when you first apply it. It does go away.. actually doesnt bother me as much as perfume scented products but I think this might bother those who are sensative to scents. This does have a light scent of may perfume but the alcohol over pwoers it. Otherwise I actually really love this product and am fascinated that this keeps me hydated all day and all night 😍 . . Since I had a Bauty Full Mask in Clean & Smooth. I tried the Clean mask in the evening and the Smooth in the morning. The insturctions say this can be used for just 5 minutes before bed or in the morning to prep your skin before you put on your makeup. . . 🌿 My first impressions of this mask is how the forehead part is short. It looks JUST like the photo on the sheet mask. The rest of the fit is perfect but the forehead area is half way too short lol. I did use a jade roller and noticed the serum rolls off the mask so I was able to use the extra product on my neck and my forehead. It is a bit watery but it really hydrates my face in just the 5 minutes I had it on. . . Continue in the comments

Son & Park Beauty Full Mask Soothing and Beauty Gel . 🌊 #wendyskincarevideo . 🌊 Checkout the massive bottle of @sonandparkofficial Beauty Gel, this huge bottle is 330 ml. It will probably take me a whole year to use it all up. Thank you @cupidrop for selecting me as one of the 12th Generation Beauty Pioneers 😍 I am super grateful for the opportunity. Aside from the Beauty Gel, @cupidrop also send the Beauty Full Mask, that name is so clever and beautiful 💕 The Beauty Gel when used with the mask is very moisturizing. The Gel was completely absorbed into the skin after removing the mask. The packaging says the mask is only meant for 5 minutes so that's great for those who doesn't have time for 20 plus minutes sheet mask and great as a morning mask when you don't have as much time. The skin moisture level increased from 32 to 47 after using the mask which is very high score compared to other masks, and that's with only 5 minutes, the result is amazing!!! Also as a tip for those who asked me how do I find time to sheet mask, I sometimes sheet mask when my kids are playing in their playroom in the basement 🤣, proof to show you that you can sheet mask pretty much everywhere and anytime. The Beauty Gel and the BEAUTY Full mask is highly recommended 👍 . 🌊 Where to buy: @cupidrop $30 for Beauty Gel and $2.50 USD for Beauty Full Soothing Mask. . 🌊 Day 8 Mind Stone – mask for mind and body of #marvelmaskchallenge hosted by @thebeautyofapineapple @mask.matters @missteasa This mask has many soothing ingredients such as Peppermint, aloe vera, bamboo, baobabab tree fruit extract and many more, great mask for SOS calming effect . 🌊 #skincare #beauty #kbeauty #sheetmasks #asianskincare #sheetfaced #koreanskincare #maskreview #masking #skincarereview #productreview #skincarejunkie #abbeatthealgorithm #abcommunity #面膜 #面膜控 #保養 #保养 #sonandpark #sonandparkbeautygel #sonandparkbeautyfullmask #cupidrop #primermask #12thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #sonandparkmask #sonandparksheetmask #skincarevideo #marvelmaskchallengeus

Mini Review Time! This is @sonandparkofficial Beauty Gel. 💎 This is a continuation from yesterday's @cupidrop #BP12thgeneration review. 💎 The beauty gel packaging looks very similar to Son&Park's beauty water. It is a moisturizing gel that's a "skincare and makeup booster in one". It contains "ChokChok Oxygen Water Complex" to hydrate the skin and boost luminosity and clincally tested "TokTok Collagen Capsule" which contains rose oil to minimize the appearance of pores and to create a smooth complexion. The major ingredients in this beauty gel are evening primrose oil, bergamot fruit oil, and several flower and fruit oils.💎 The beauty gel certainly has a gel-like texture. It melts into a very watery texture when in contact with skin. As you can see in the second picture, once the gel is melted the little clear capsules are clearly visible on my skin. A little more rubbing dissolves the capsules. I would describe the scent as a light herbal scent mixed with alcohol. I was not surprised by the alcohol scent because it is the second ingredient on the list. I don't really mind it. My skin does feel slightly hydrated and matte, and my makeup applies smoothly and stays put on top of it. I wouldn't think this was a skincare item that can replace your moisturizer, but as a primer I like the extra moisturizing effect and the non-greasy formula.💎 This retails for $30 for 330mL on Cupidrop.com. I think it's a very good price for the amount you get as a primer.💎 . . . Product received from @cupidrop complimentary for review purposes. #beautifulpioneers #cupidrop #12thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #sonandpark #primer #makeupprimer #beautygel #essentialoils #collagen #makeuplover #skincare #kbeauty #oilyskin #facialmask #skincare #kbeauty #skincareroutine #koreanbeauty #kbeautyblogger #skincarejunkie #abcommunity #productreview #asianbeautyblogger #skincareblogger

@sonandparkofficial Beauty Full Mask Clean Type. I was sent this sheet mask from @cupidrop to review but all opinions are my own. ⏰ This is a fast acting primer mask before makeup. This contains AHA and centella that helps exfoliate and moisturize your face. ⏰ This sheet mask is thin and is made out of natural microfiber. Okay. Lol what is up with this fit? 🤔😥 barely covered half of my forehead! Ultimately it did the job but still What?! ⏰ The essence is watery and there was extra essence in the pouch that I applied to my exposed forehead and neck. No scent noticed. ⏰ I kept the mask on for five mins. My face felt hydrated and refreshed after this sheet mask. My skin absorbed the essence quickly and there was no tacky feeling. I applied Son and Park Beauty gel and proceeded to do my makeup. ⏰ My face was hydrated. I applied my Hera moist cushion, concealer, blush and power onto my skin with no issues and no pilling. At the end of the night my makeup still looked 👌🏼 • Fit: ⏰ Essence:⏰⏰⏰⏰ Scent:⏰⏰⏰⏰ Overall:⏰⏰⏰ • So this mask definitely works well. It’s a great little pick me up before a date night, big event or if you want a quick masking session before bed. Ultimately I am not someone who would use a primer mask before wearing makeup. If that is something you would do I would suggest this sheet mask for you although. Seriously what is up with the fit?! I personally wouldn’t purchase with my own money. • #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarethread #skincarebeauty #skincareusa #skincareaddict #skincarelover #skincarecommunity #skincaregoals #abskincare #abskincarecommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #discoverunder2k #instabeauty #instaskin #asianbeauty #taiwanesebeauty #koreanbeauty #sheetmaskaddict #sheetmaskreview #skincarereview #sheetmask #mask #nighttimeroutine #beautifulpioneers #12thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #skinkarenreviews
