I am here with another K-Beauty Expo Review. I am wrapping things up this month so for the next several posts here and on my instagram it will be posts of the products that K-Beauty Expo has sent me to review. Pam’s Beauty & Business is a Korean skin specialist/cosmetics company with experience over 30 years. They sell Italian and German skincare as well. I will only be reviewing the Korean brand that they produce called Pam’s Spa. I received the TERRA VITA Volcanic Mineral Powder Mask, Water Drop Blue Solution 3 in 1 Ampule Gel Cream, Skinalle Anti Gravity Lifting Mask, and the Professional Derma Fluid. Shall we start?
TERRA VITA Volcanic Mineral Powder Mask
This comes in a very large box and it contains six individually packaged containers and a spoon. The packs are a bit hard to take out, I had to use the other end of my tweezers to pry it out from the plastic holder. Inside it contains 100% very fine volcanic mineral powder. It naturally stimulates ion exchange and is universally applicable to all skin types. It can be used as an intensive cleaning mask for face and body. It removes excess sebum and micro dust while firming, whitening and revitalizing the skin.
After adding a spoonful of water the texture will become like dirt. It’s like a very thin mud mask. Because it’s just water that you add to it it will dry up pretty quickly. I also found it a bit drying on my skin, but it’s because I have dry skin. So this works as a exfoliating face pack. I did notice that my skin looked clearer, smoother and softer. I think next time I will only put it on parts of my face and not all over, because I felt like I had to moisturize right away! For a box it costs 30,000KRW.
Water Drop Blue Solution 3 in 1 Ampule Gel Cream
The next item is the cream. It comes in a plastic jar. When I read ‘Blue Solution’ I didn’t think it was actually going to be blue! It kinda threw me off of using it because it of the color and the texture I really don’t like how it goes on my face. It’s the cyclopentasiloxane, a silicone based ingredient that gives it that slip. Also, the smell is quite strong, I want to describe it as a fresh aquatic smell. It not bad, but it lingers a while.
However, even with these shortcomings, it’s not a bad cream. It consists of more than 30% of moisture factors. Contains Blue Complex, which includes Chamomile, Borage, Lavender, Hyacinth, Clary Sage, and Cornflower. I don’t think I would recommend it though, the finish is a little bit too tacky for my taste. This cream is 39,000KRW.
Skinalle Anti Gravity Lifting Mask
Lifting anything is always a good thing, but with some products I’ve used in the past lifting masks always seem to be the most disappointing. The Skinalle mask doesn’t use any ear hooking hydrogel patches, thank God! This lifting mask contains albumin and human oligopeptide-1 for skin elasticity, collagen regeneration, and anti-wrinkle effects. It also contains 6 different kinds of Hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin.
The mask comes in a regular mask pouch and instead of leaving the mask on for 20-30 minutes, you leave it on skin for 10-15 minutes and wash it off. If you don’t, like I did for 5 mins after taking it off, it will feel like actual glue and your eyelids will stick to itself. HAHAHA. Afterwards it feels tighter, but it’s not a miracle face lift. I think its worth a try though, for a box of 5 it costs 30,000KRW.
Professional Derma Fluid
Last on the list the the Professional Derma Fluid. This was a complete fail for me. I really think that it should be left for professional use. There are 4 types of vials, Purifying for acne and senstive skin, Moisturizing for dry and normal condition skin, Brightening for aged and pigmented skin, and Peptide for lifting. These glass vials come with no directions, so I wasted 2 vials and the third one the broken glass got stuck in the plastic tube thing, and I am not even going to with the last vial. I’m sure the fluid inside is awesome, but I can’t seem to open them correctly and also just thinking that there might be micro pieces of glass on my skin is a definite no-no for me. This is hard 20,000KRW pass from me.
Not my favorite review, but there were some ok ones like the Terra Vita mask and the Skinalle Anti Gravity Lifting Mask. The whole aesthetic of the brand doesn’t charm me and it needs an upgrade, and that’s my opinion. Overall it’s just an OK from me. You can visit their shop at http://www.pamsspa.co.kr/.
