Korean beauty brand 11 Huesday believes that to get healthy skin, you need hydration, balance, and keratin. Their products aim to condition the skin for it to become healthy and radiant.
A cleansing oil in mist form, the Extra Shiny Cleansing Mist promises to remove makeup and impurities. It also contains vitamin complex 5 to hydrate, hydrolyzed collagen to moisturize the skin and strengthen the skin barrier, niacinamide to brighten, and aha complex to remove dead skin cell and balance the skin.
This is honestly genius. It’s perfect to carry around traveling or if you just need to remove your makeup in the middle of the day. It’s gentle and hydrating while removing makeup. It can also be rinsed with water and leaves the skin soft and smooth without any filmy residue left behind. If you like cleansing oils and are always traveling, this is good to bring without worrying about spills.
To brighten and moisturize, The C Activating Serum contains 15% ascorbic acid, 7.5% hyaluronic acid, and 2% arbutin. In terms of brightening, this did the job. I noticed that my skin looked more radiant after 1 week of use. In terms of lightening dark spots, though, this doesn’t work as fast as the other vitamin c serums I’ve used. Also, it might have hyaluronic acid but it doesn’t hydrate my skin enough. I tend to get oily by the afternoon if I use this in the morning.
The Face & Neck Sparkling Mask is sort of a DIY sheet mask that works to remove oil and dead skin cells, cleanse pores, improve skin barrier, and brighten, hydrate, and balance the skin using hyaluronic acid, panthenol, hydrolyzed collagen, centella asiatica, and citric acid.
Contained in an injection-like packaging, the essence is meant to be applied on the face before it’s covered with a dry sheet. After 20 minutes, it is to be rinsed with warm water. This is fun to use because I can control the amount of essence that I can use. The gel felt cool and calming to the skin and after putting the dry sheet, this felt like a sheet mask. It feels gentle on the skin and once rinsed, it leaves the face hydrated and soft. I like to use this as a hydrating mask on days when I am not physically exfoliating my skin as it provides intense moisture and hydration. This has become a favorite because my skin feels healthy and balance every time I use this.
What k-beauty brand is without a sheetmask? For 11 Huesday, they offer the Skintectonic C5 Soothing Mask. This mask aims to moisturize and soothe dehydrated skin using botanical camphor and five kinds of plant callus (damask rose, indian lotus, tomato, camellia, and yuzu). It had a strong soothing smell that reminded me of and aromatherapy oil. The actual sheet was thick and each pack contains an abundant amount of essence that one sheet session can last for more than 30 minutes. This is a good mask on days when your skin is looking for some moisture and soothing.
These 11 Huesday products are honestly a surprise for me. I feel like they would work for those who are looking for gentle products that will help make the skin look and feel healthy and balance. The standouts for me are the cleansing mist and the sparkling mask. They helped strengthen my skin barrier while hydrating and moisturizing my skin without clogging my pores or making my skin oilier.
