If you follow us on our blog as well as our Instagram, you are probably aware that we’ve been hosting a campaign called ‘Beautiful Pioneers.’ Our 1st & 2nd Generations were huge successes, so of course—we had to do a third round.

//

The Cupidrop family would like to express our deepest gratitude because thanks to you, our 3rd Generation campaign was extraordinarily amazing.

We distributed Purpletale’s products to 30 K-Beauty enthusiasts from all over the country. We got honest feedback (both positive and somewhat negative), but all of our Beautiful Pioneers offered valuable thoughts that were super helpful!

Here is a report on what we got from our Beautiful Pioneers:

PURPLETALE 5 Steps to Lovely Skin

WHAT IT IS:

A five-step facial treatment kit that comes with (1) foam cleanser, (2) ampoule, (3) bio-cellulose sheet mask, (4) facial cream, and (5) neck cream.

HOW TO USE:

Step 1 – Foam Cleanser: lather foam cleanser in hands and wash face and neck. Rinse and gently pat dry.

Step 2 – Ampoule: apply product to face and neck and wait for the product to sink in.

Step 3 – Mask: peel away protective film on one side, place the mask on face and then peel away the other protective film. Leave on face for at least 20 minutes. Remove and let the product sink in.

Step 4 – Dab facial cream on face and apply evenly.

Step 5 – Massage neck cream onto neck with an upward motion.

WHEN TO USE:

When your skin needs an intense treatment—wherever you are. This is perfect for those who travel often as it is a portable and reliable skincare routine.

REACTION:

Many agreed that this solution would be extremely useful for a quick weekend trip or to take on flights. The bio-cellulose mask received so much love due to its texture and its ability to significantly brighten up the face. However, many BPs noted that the pH level of the cleanser portion was just too high.

SNIPPETS:

Here are some interesting thoughts from our reviewers:

“Overall I think this is a pretty neat little kit! I think in the future I’d skip on the foam cleanser since I’m not wild about its pH or the ingredients listed, but everything else was very functional and pleasant to use. ” ~courtesy of @mypointlessobsession

“It’s definitely good for travel and lazy days when I don’t feel like thinking about what my next steps should be. The steps are portioned already so all you would really have to do is apply. ” ~courtesy of @jeekee.noona

PURPLETALE Setting the Scene Treatment Essence

WHAT IT IS:

A treatment essence that sets the perfect foundation for your beauty routine by improving your skin’s texture and clarity. It instantly perks up your skin and will improve skin’s overall texture.

HOW TO USE:

Apply an appropriate amount of this essence to your fingertips, then gently pat onto cleansed face and neck.

WHEN TO USE:

Every morning and night.

REACTION:

The reaction was pretty positive for the most part. Many noted that it was lightweight and easygoing on the skin, and one BP stated that it even calmed her redness down. However, the alcohol content seemed to be fairly high on the ingredient list, which was something that the BPs thought the product could do without.

Here are some interesting thoughts from our reviewers:

“When using this product, I just shake about 4 drops into my palms, rub my hands together, and pat it onto my face. It absorbs very quickly and instantly feels very hydrating!” ~courtesy of @youi.amkel

Sara: I enjoy that it preps my skin for the rest of my products and overall found this product to be a nice addition to my routine. Rosa: While it does a great job of prepping my skin for the rest of my routine, it bothers me that alcohol is so high on the list.” ~courtesy of @the_beauty_witches

PURPLETALE Ode to Hydration Facial Cream

WHAT IT IS:

This facial cream aims to repair a wide variety of skin concerns including dull complexion, fine lines, dark spots, and blemishes.

HOW TO USE:

After cleansing, toner and essence, gently apply the cream all over your face and neck. Lightly tap to aid absorption.

WHEN TO USE:

Every morning and night.

REACTION:

The cream had great responses on its texture and how it quickly sank into the skin; however, some BPs noted that it might not be the best option for oily to combination skin as it might be too heavy of a consistency.

SNIPPETS:

Here are some interesting thoughts from our reviewers:

“Surprisingly it absorbed into my skin very well and quickly. However, the cream is still a bit thicker than I would prefer on my normally oily skin. ” ~courtesy of @strangecertainty
victoriaxtsay
“I like that it’s full of good ingredients and honestly it served its purpose well as an occlusive, but most nights I still wanted to reach for my regular hydrating moisturizer. This product won’t be for everybody – I wouldn’t recommend this to people with oily or combo skin, nor anybody who is sensitive to alcohol – but it’s great for locking in moisture. ” ~courtesy of @victoriaxtsay

PURPLETALE Plot Twist Restorative Cream

WHAT IT IS:

This restorative cream is perfect for when your skin needs extra help. When your skin goes off course, Plot Twist brings it back to its beautiful, natural state. It is formulated with shape memory polymers, so the cream goes back to its original state after each use—making it feel like a brand new tub each time.

HOW TO USE:

Apply a generous amount on cleansed face and neck. Lightly tap to aid absorption.

WHEN TO USE:

Every morning and night. However, it is especially helpful when your skin needs that extra boost.

REACTION:

Many BPs were surprised at the texture of the cream and how it formed back into a smooth surface each time they used it—even after scooping it up! Some noticed brighter and hydrated complexions but some noted that they did not really receive the “restorative” part of the cream.

SNIPPETS:

Here are some interesting thoughts from our reviewers:

thebeautyvein
“Just like the consistency of the cream, my skin feels very bouncy right after application and still has some bounce in the morning. It’s supposed to be a restorative, repairing cream but really all that I’ve noticed is some really nicely hydrated skin after use.” ~courtesy of @thebeautyvein
liensang
“As a result, I found that this cream served pretty well as an occlusive – it nicely sealed in my previous essences and serums, and so, I would always wake up with smooth and repaired skin!” ~courtesy of @liensang

PURPLETALE Once Upon a Neck Cream

WHAT IT IS:

A rich and revitalizing neck cream that aims to tighten and keep the wrinkles at bay.

HOW TO USE:

Using an upward motion, gently massage the cream over your neck and jawline.

WHEN TO USE:

Every morning and night.

REACTION:

For many BPs, this neck cream served as a reminder that a lot of skincare routines often neglect the neck—which by the way, is one of the first areas where signs of aging shows! Some said that they are definitely going to incorporate neck creams into their routines from now on; however, some said that using a cream especially designed for the neck wasn’t too far off from using a regular facial cream.

SNIPPETS:

Here are some interesting thoughts from our reviewers:

thepambeauty
“I have to say it definitely helps in tackling my dryness in my neck area. I like how moisturizing and soft my neck is. The cream firms and smooth my skin as well. I do have some lines from looking down a lot (I guess from my phone or computer), the lines did smoothen out a bit over the course of 2-3 weeks.” ~courtesy of @thepambeauty
dreamstocreations
“Although it did minimize some of the fine lines on my neck, the effects have not been long lasting. I am going to keep using it and hope that it will provide a better result by the end of the jar. ” ~courtesy of @dreamstocreations

AND, THAT’S A WRAP!

THANK YOU again to all of our 3rd Gen. Beautiful Pioneers as well as Purpletale for making this possible.

This party is not over, so be on the watch out for what we’re going to do next.
