Review: Kiss Skincare Whitening Collagen Cream Mask (@official_kissindo / @kissjakarta)

If you’re interested to beauty trends, I’m sure this product is familiar to you. Yup, Thailand beauty products are so booming lately, and Kiss Skincare Whitening Collagen Cream Mask is one of the hottest :)) I got to know this through some Instagram-based stores and beauty blogs but at first I was not interested to try it AT ALL, because I thought it was only for whitening (I’m already good with my light-medium skin tone although it’s not so even). Then I got contacted to try this South East Asia’s best-selling cream mask for free for review purpose, so I gave it a try for almost a month… and I’m glad that I tried it :)) Here I try to provide all the important information about the product. All the information provided is based on my personal experience and credible sources :)

What it claims
(On the box:) “The overnight cream mask that restores radiance, clarity & suppleness to all skin types. Formulated with collagen extract, alpha arbutin, vitamin C+ and natural extracts, the cream mask diminishes the appearance of pores, supports natural nourishment, exfoliates and addresses impurities. GMP certified.”
(Additions by the marketers:) “FDA certified. Helps reduce acne and acne scar.”

Ingredients: see the picture of the back-side of the box


Packaging
One word for its packaging design: Sophisticated!

I really love the idea of jar-with-pump packaging for liquid skincare products. Don’t need to bother using spatula to scoop the cream out or worrying over the bacteria that can contaminate your cream every time you dip your fingers into it. Just pump it-pump it-pump it babe. Very hygienic ❤ (the “jar-with-pump” *duh what to call it* can also be opened like any other jar so you can scoop the last dollops of your cream with spatula/fingers [I recommend spatula] if they can’t be pumped out anymore. Zero waste, yay!)


Texture & scent

The texture is more to thick and creamy but it’s very easy to apply. It spreads evenly and absorbs just fine, not sticky at all.
About the scent – it has a “perfumed-likely” scent that may be a turn off for those who don’t like perfumed skincare, but please note that it could just be the natural scent of the ingredients, not artificial scent. I personally think that the scent is really nice and soft, it reminds me of baby cologne :D


Directions of use

Note: The box says it’s recommended to be used twice a week.
@official_kissindo & @kissjakarta recommend you to NOT use this cream mask with other product (e.g. night cream/serum) in order to maximize its work on your skin. But yes you can use cleansing products before applying the cream mask.


Performance
This is the first Thai skincare product that I try and I looove it. Like what I’ve mentioned, at first I was not interested to try it AT ALL, because I thought it was only for whitening (I’m already good with my light-medium skin tone although it’s not so even. My current skin problems are acne and acne scar).

After I tried it for almost a month, it turned out to be one of my holy grail beauty products! My skin looks healthier, supple and slightly brighter every time I wake up in the morning after overnight use. I’d say that the most visible effect is the suppleness, thanks to the collagen!

Not like any other skincare product that makes my skin “smooth” but also leaves tight-feeling to my skin (read: DRYING), Kiss Whitening Collagen Cream Mask makes my skin smooth and moist. That’s what your skin should be if it’s really nourished and moisturized. I’m amazed by that fact, remembering that this cream mask also exfoliates your skin (many of exfoliating products that I’ve tried made my skin dehydrated).

I think it also helps reduce acnes and prevent new ones to come out! I’m so happy that it actually works for my actual skin problem :’D (even if it doesn’t help reduce my acnes I’d be happy just with the fact that it doesn’t cause breakouts lol) To prove it I encouraged myself to upload the before-after close-ups of my problematic chin skin:

Conclusion
YAYs :
❤ Very hygienic packaging!
❤ It doesn’t cause breakouts (on my skin)
❤ It makes my skin slightly brighter, supple and looks healthier (this is true cause I CHECK MY FACE A LOT :p)
❤ It makes my skin smooth and moist instead of smooth-with-a-tight-feeling (read: DRYING)
❤ It actually helps reduce acne and prevent new ones to come out
❤ Suitable to all skin types

NAYs :
☻ Pricey (but totally worth it!!). Thank God I got mine for free :p
☻ The fact that it has a “perfumed-likely” scent may be a turn off for those who don’t like perfumed skincare, but please note that it could just be the natural scent of the ingredients, not artificial scent

Anyway, please beware of the fake ones!! Go to @official_kissindo / @kissjakarta (top sellers of Thai skincare products) Instagram page to learn how to distinguish the fake and genuine ones.


Kiss Skincare Whitening Collagen Cream Mask comes in 2 sizes:

15ml (like mine) – Rp. 300.000,- at @official_kissindo / @kissjakarta
30ml – Rp. 450.000,- at @official_kissindo / @kissjakarta

You can also buy the sample sachet at @official_kissindo / @kissjakarta or get it for free by following and liking their feeds (the winner will be picked randomly)!

I’d say that they’re the Thai skincare products sellers that offer the best deals because they deliver promotional program every month + THEY SHIP NATIONWIDE FOR FREE!!
(Don’t be confused, they’re partners and both are top sellers of Thai skincare products)
