Thank you, 13th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers!

Another round of Beautiful Pioneers has successfully concluded! A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the 13th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers—it was your contribution that made this round another great success!


For the 13th round of Beautiful Pioneers, we offered up 7 sheet masks by the premium homespa brand — 23 Years Old. This selection of sheet masks include some amazingly innovative formula and packaging that will make you go “WHAT?!” and, of course, without compromising the efficacy. Come get lost in the world of masks!

Hop in and see what we got from our Beautiful Pioneers:


1. 23 Years Old – Acupair Petit Mask


A separate two part facial mask. The upper sheet is a charcoal mask that centers on refining wrinkles and soothing the skin. While the lower sheet is an acupressure sheet that helps the skin detox and eliminate any swelling for a firm appearance.

WHEN:  Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. Place the charcoal sheet on the upper part of face around the area of eyes and cheeks.
Step 2. Apply the white acupressure sheet following the chin line. Make sure that the protrusion side of the sheet gets attached to the skin and hang it over the ears to fix.
Step 3. Wear the mask for approximately 10-20 minutes. Use fingers to tap the lower mask for maximum lifting.
Step 4. Remove the sheet mask and gently pat the skin to fully absorb the remaining essence.

2. 23 Years Old – Cocktail Velvet Petit Mask


An anti-aging mask that contains Niacinamide and Glutathione to brighten and prevent premature signs of aging. The mask also provides a series of rich nutrients and vitamin complexes to improve blood circulation and skin health.

WHEN:  Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. Open the mask sheet and apply it evenly on the face.
Step 2. After 20 minutes, remove the sheet mask and softly pat the skin to fully absorb the remaining essence.

3. 23 Years Old – Inthera Silfiting Petit Mask


A Silfiting (a thread-web) sheet mask that can withhold high concentrations of firming essences. These essences lift up the skin and bring a natural pink glow to your cheeks. Adenosine and the high purity of sodium hyaluronate strongly tighten and lift the skin for a younger looking appearance.

WHEN:  Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. Remove the support film and apply the Silfiting (a thread-web) sheet to the face.
Step 2. After 10-20 minutes, remove the sheet mask and gently pat the skin to absorb any remaining essence.

4. 23 Years Old – Cocoon Gold Silky Mask


A luxurious and silky sheet mask that highly moisturizes the skin for a radiant and a crisp look. The skin friendly AP CELL sheet helps the highly enriched essence effectively absorb into the skin and combat any dehydration.

WHEN:  Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. After cleansing, apply the sheet mask along your face line.
Step 2. After 10-20 minutes, remove the sheet mask and softly pat the skin to fully absorb the remaining essence. 

5. 23 Years Old – Black Cavidiol Mask


An innovative sheet mask containing skin friendly black caviar. The black capsules visible on the mask are a nourishing essence. This essence melts down according to skin temperature and delivers moisture and nourishment deep into the skin.

WHEN:  Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. After washing your face, apply the sheet mask along your face line.
Step 2. Cover the chin line and pull the sheet up. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes.
Step 3. Remove the sheet mask and gently dab skin to absorb the essence and BDD capsule

6. 23 Years Old – O2 Moisture Bubble Mask


A fresh O2 carbonated bubble mask that leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated.  The fine bubble of the mask is a weak stimulus. It penetrates deeper into the pores with fine particles, tightening the pores and helping regain a clear complexion.

WHEN: Use at night after applying toner.


Step 1. Fold the top of the pouch three times along the dotted line
Step 2. Pop the rolled pouch strongly with your thumbs
Step 3. Knead well to help the essence absorb into the vitamin sheet
Step 4. Apply the sheet and dab at your face to accelerate the carbonic bubbles *Slightly reddish skin is normal
Step 5. Wash your face only with water

7. 23 Year Old – Water Pack


A complex water sheet that contains a certain ratio of glucose and salt. It helps the skin relax by providing moisture in a gentle manner. Best suited for soothing sensitive and irritated skin.

WHEN:  Use morning or night after applying toner.


Step 1. After cleansing, prepare your skin with toner.
Step 2. Adjust sheet to adhere entirely over the face.
Step 3. Leave on for 5-10 min. Remove the sheet and gently pat the remaining essence into the skin for better absorption.



1. 23 Years Old – Acupair Petit Mask: The two-part design is definitely intriguing to our beautiful pioneers! The mask provides good hydration, slight firming, and the acupressure points were a big stress-reliever.

2. 23 Years Old – Cocktail Velvet Petit Mask: Our reviewers reported having glowy, baby-soft skin after using this mask. It is moisturizing but not sticky.

3. 23 Years Old – Inthera Silfiting Petit Mask: Everyone was blown away by the “netting” sheet — definitely something we had never seen before. The serum is jelly-like and super moisturizing!

4. 23 Years Old – Cocoon Gold Silky Mask: This super-soaked mask brings out the glow and leaves our reviewers’ skin even-toned!

5. 23 Years Old – Black Cavidiol Mask: This one, again, caught our reviewers by surprise! This mask is extremely moisturizing , and since there is no mouth-hole, it moisturizes the lips well, too!

6. 23 Years Old – O2 Moisture Bubble Mask: Some terms that were associated with this mask was “nice fitting”, “fresh”, “super smooth” and it even helped shrink a pimple!

7. 23 Year Old – Water Pack: This is again an interesting mask. It is very refreshing, and our reviewers reported plump and relaxed skin!


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

This collection embodies the word that our beautiful pioneers love using — “skintertaining”! Not only do they deliver good results, they are super entertaining to use. Some of them include interesting ingredients, while some of them use never-before-seen sheets like “acupressure point” and (gasp) thread-webs! 23 Years Old is a truly innovative brand that combines “skincare” with “entertainment”, no wonder our reviewers would describe using these masks as good “skintertainment”!

@23yearsold_global cocoon gold silky mask. 🔱 this mask fit my face pretty well, just some slight bunching around my chin. It had a nice cooling effect. It had a minty scent, that went away quickly. 🔱 I left it on for 35 min. It was easy to pat in and left the tiniest little bit of stickiness behind, but it went away with the next step in my routine. My skin felt so super hydrated after using this, and cool. 🔱 ingredient fact: silk worm cocoons are great for keeping skin hydrated and can have some anti aging benefits. 🧜‍♀️💗 I will totally be getting this again. It’s available from @cupidrop for $10 (but they might be on sale for 2 for 1 if I read their website right. Don’t quote me). . I was given this in exchange for an honest review. . . #13thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #beautifulpioneers #23yearsoldskincare #cupidrop #skincare #instaskincare #kbeauty #asianbeauty #abcommunity #beauty #instabeauty #beautycare #beautyguru #스킨케어 #마스크팩 #마스크팩추천 #뷰티 #뷰티그램 #뷰티템 #k뷰티 #뷰티팁 #뷰티블로거 #뷰티스타그램

23 Years Old – Water Pack I was expecting a regular sheet mask but was surprised by the packet containing 4 medium thickness regular cotton pad. Soaked in watery essence with a certain ratio of glucose and salt. It’s super cooling to the skin as it relaxes the skin by providing moisture in a gentle manner. I tried this in my morning routine after toning and it sure wakes me up! One thing I find out about using this type of mask is my left face is slightly wider than my right 😂 because I have slightly more material left by my ear! I can’t detect any scent and had this on for 10 minutes. It didn’t take long for the essence to dry after removal. It dried to a smooth finish. Skin felt more refresh, plump and bouncy from the extra moisture. It’s a great pick me up mask and my dry skin loved this! Received from @cupidrop as part of the Beautiful Pioneers 13th Generation program. All opinions are my own. • #smotd #23yearsoldmask oldmask #brightening #kbeauty #beautyaddict #liftingmask #firmingmask #dailymasking #skincarechallenge #koreanskincare #asianskincare #koreanbeauty #moisturizingmask #nourishingmask #instablogger #skincarereview #skincareblogger #skincareaddict #jolereviews #jolemasking #abbeatthealgorithm #jole23yearsold #cupidrop #beautifulpioneers #13thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #23yearsoldskincare

💖 HAPPY #MASKMONDAY BABES!! 💖 . A couple weeks ago I was chosen as one of @cupidrop 's 2019 Beautiful Pioneers!! . I was sent 7 sheetmasks made by @23yearsold_global to review, & I've compiled a little mash-up to share my thoughts with you! I used one mask each night for a week & this was my experience.. . I started out last Monday night with the Cocktail Velvet Petit Mask & I noticed instantly that my face appeared much brighter afterwards. Tuesday night was the Inthera Silfitting Petit Mask that seemed to give my skin a big boost of elasticity. Wednesday night I used the Acupair Petit Mask & although I didn't notice much of anything my skin felt really hydrated & that's always a plus! . Thursday night I used the Black Cacidiol Mask which contains 50ppm of Caviar extract & I must say, just when I thought my skin couldn't get any more hydrated this mask delivered a boost of nourishment & hydration! I loved how dewy my skin felt after! . Then Friday I broke out the Cocoon Gold Silky Mask, & again I kind of felt with this one there was no noticeable improvements. That being said this mask is a hydrating one & given I've masked every night for a week & was already well hydrated, it didn't really have a fair chance. . Saturday I used the Water Pack, & I really liked it. It was like a wave of hydration for your face, & I love the simplicity of it. . Sunday night I saved what I thought to be my favorite for last, which was the O2 Moisture Bubble Mask. This one was awesome! My skin felt so fresh & smooth! It combines oxygen- rich essence, vitamins, & carbonic bubbles to deliver deeply hydrated, super smooth skin. . TBH I loved almost all of them, & overall really enjoyed this fun little experience reviewing these super cool K Beauty masks! . Huge thanks to Cupidrop & 23YearsOld for the opportunity! Head to the link in my bio too find out more about Cupidrop & 23YearsOld skincare. . __________________________ #cupidrop #beautifulpioneers #13thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #23yearsoldskincare #sheetmask #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #skincarereview #beautyreview #skincarediary #skincare101 #beautyfavorites #igskincare #skincarelove

23 Years Old Cocktail Velvet Petit Mask . 🧖‍♀️ #wendyskincarevideo . 🧖‍♀️ I have always wanted to try @23yearsold_global masks, I only ever tried their Badecasil Dermaseal Mask, and I really love that one. This is The Cocktail Velvet Petit Mask which is new from @23yearsold_official 😍, it contains Niacin Amide and Glutathione to brighten and prevent premature signs of aging, as well as rejuvenate skin. The mask also contains series of rich nutrients and vitamin complexes, it is packed with 5 types of whitening essence, it helps correct skin tone while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The best part about the mask is the amount of serum that it has. The packaging says it has 30g of serum, even taking out the mask it probably still has 30g of serum left. The serum is white emulsion-like, very hydrating. The fit of this mask is pretty small, it barely covered to my jars and I think I have a relatively small face. The fit and adherence of the mask is pretty good. I wore this for almost 30 minutes because it had so much essences, it was still damp mostly after 30 minutes. Overall, really good mask, no tacky feeling and my skin felt baby soft afterwards and it reduced the redness of the pimple on my forehead 😘 . 🧖‍♀️ Where to buy: $5 from @cupidrop . 🧖‍♀️ Thank you @cupidrop for sending me these masks as part of #13thgenerationbeautifulpioneers . 🧖‍♀️ #skincare #beauty #kbeauty #sheetmasks #asianskincare #sheetfaced #koreanskincare #maskreview #masking #skincarereview #productreview #skincarejunkie #abbeatthealgorithm #abcommunity #面膜 #面膜控 #保養 #保养 #23yearsold #23yearsoldcocktailvelvetpetit #23yearsoldmask #skincarevideo #cupidrop #beautifulpioneers #23yearsoldskincare

O2 Moisture Bubble Mask Among all the masks that I received form Cupidrop, this one caught my attention first. It’s the only bulgingly packed mask and from the looks of it, it seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Notable ingredients of this mask are Vitamin Tree Water, Red Hogweed Root Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Aloe Vera Leaf Water. It works to clean the skin while making it look brighter and more hydrated. To use this mask, as per instruction, fold the top pouch three times. Pop the rolled pouch – I suggest you clasp both of your hands and squeeze – it is easier! Now, knead the bottom part of the mask so that the sheet will absorb the essence. Apply the mask. Tap to activate then wash your face with water. I felt tingling on my skin while I had the mask on; it was not really that bad compared to other bubble masks that I have tried where it feels itchy on the skin. After rinsing, my skin looks well hydrated and definitely look brighter. It also feels cleaner and very smooth to the touch. #cupidrop #beautifulpioneers #13thgenerationbeautifulpioneers #23yearsoldskincare #kbeautycommunity #skincare #kskincare #discover #o2moisturebubblemask #bubblemask #smotd #motd #beautytreats #maskreview #sheetmasking #facemask #pr
