History Of Whoo Qi & Jin Mask Review September 24, 2011











Natural bamboo fibre sheet masks utilize the principle of yin and yang harmony to bring balance to skin, increasing moisture and minimizing fire for beautifully moisturized and supple skin. By combining the major ingredients from the Gongjinhyang and Gongjinhyang:seol  lines, skin is treated to the dual effect of whitening and anti-wrinkle, leaving skin revitalized with a radiant glow.


Please note that this mask has been upgraded into the In Yang Outline Mask which includes an eye patch pictured below :

You pay for what you get ! This mask is packaged beautifully like most of Whoo products and comes in a super bling bling golden package with a bamboo on the right picturing the ‘bamboo fiber’ mask sheet.

The mask fitting was so-so : it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. At least it covered the entire face without any problems. The only problem was the chin area ( look at the 1st photo ) , where the mask was too huge that it wasn’t ‘wrapping’ the face nicely in the chin area and the nose area was a slight problem too.



Mask Sheet

These mask are made from high quality natural bamboo fibre sheet and you can really tell the difference from the cheap masks. It’s very durable, thick, and comfortable on the face. I even wanted to keep the mask cloth after using it to use it as my ‘lotion mask’ but i ended up using it as a cloth to wipe my table. Haha…



Mask Essence

The mask essence was a thick goey whitish essence, something like the Hannule Whitening Mask, but it absorbs much better into the skin than the Hannule Whitening Mask essence. It doesn’t give that very rich, greasy effect that the Hannule Whitening Mask essence gives but it leaves your skin REALLLY smooth and powdery ( kind of like the old Seol Whitening Cream feel ). Big love for this! Not to mention, this mask combines the best ingredients both from the Gongjinhyang line and the Whitening Seol line!



Tried squeezing the mask after leaving it on the face for 15 minutes to see how much essence was left :




Though the mask was already pretty dry after 15 minutes, there was still some essence left, though not much. I ended up putting the squeezed out essence back on my face and on my hands and neck so i don’t waste it.









I was reallly impressed with this mask, and probably rank it in the Top 2 mask, or even the best mask I’ve used so far. Actually i was really impressed with it even before i was finished with the mask because i saw a huge difference on the back of my hands ( i rubbed the leftover essence on my hands ). The back of my hands were reallllly soft, really moisturized and it was not even greasy!  My hands were glowing.



True enough, it did the same to my skin after putting on the mask for 15 minutes. The essence absorbed well into the skin, wasn’t greasy – and you can immediately follow up with your skincare routine after putting on the mask unlike some masks which are too rich and greasy that you have to wash your skin before putting on your skincare.



Here was what the Skin Meter showed :






Perfect ! Full points for skin texture, full points for moisture level, and low oil levels – just as what i said above!


Here is a before – after photo where you can really see the changes after the mask  ( click photo to see enlarged version ) – radiant skin, really smooth texture, and smaller pores! It’s really an amazing mask! Smile 






I really do hope the new and improved mask measures up to this or keeps the same formulation – I’d definitely be purchasing more of this mask! It’s even better than the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask ! With the best ingredients both from the Whoo Gongjinhyang line and the Whoo Whitening Seol line – i don’t think the mask can go wrong since both lines are really superb!



High quality material , high quality ingredients, smaller pores, radiant face, non-greasy, smooth as baby skin, moisturized face : what more can you ask for from a mask? Hopefully the upgraded version has a better fitting –and it’d be the perfect mask!
