I’m going to write about two products today from the same brand– one that I liked and another that didn’t impress me much. Let’s start with the first one.

 

Hyggee All-In-One Essence

The product I liked is the Hyggee All-In-One Essence It’s called “all-in-one” as it claims to have the ff. functions:
1. Powerful moisturizing
2. Brightening and wrinkle care
3. Exfoliating care
4. Nourishing and moisturizing (again?😂)
From the directions of use, I understand that this essence is supposed to take the place of my toner, essence, serum, and even my moisturizer.

Pros:
After cleansing, I apply two pumps (equivalent to two layers) of this essence all over my dry face and one pump for my neck. What I notice right away is that I look like I’ve applied multiple layers of a hydrating toner on my skin! In other words, my skin looks plumped, brightened and smoothed. I also like how my BB cream applies well on top of it. It surely lives up to its claim of being an “all-in-one” product, so I give it two thumbs up for that 👍👍 Also, it is free from parabens, sulfates, and alcohol 😊💚

Cons:
It is worth noting, though, that this gel-type essence is quite viscous, so make sure you don’t apply too much. I personally prefer applying two layers, though, because that’s when I see the great effects. I don’t see much difference when I apply only one layer. It also takes a while for it to be completely absorbed, so I have to do more tapping (or slapping) than usual 😂 And even after doing this, there’s still a bit of tackiness left. So I always have to follow it up with a separate moisturizer or BB cream, which easily solves the problem.

Will I Purchase?
If you have been following me for a while now, you’d know that I’m a big fan of long routines 😛 And this All-In-One Essence surely cuts my routine by several steps! Since it’s meant to replace all the steps from toner to moisturizer, I feel that applying my serums and a sheet mask on top of this essence would be a waste because they will not be absorbed well. So as much I as I am liking the results of this product, I don’t see myself purchasing it for myself in the future. I like being able to customize my routines according to my skin’s needs or my mood 😂 But if you are a short-routine gal or a minimalist when it comes to skincare, I think this product will be right up your alley 😊

This product retails for US$37 (1928 PHP) on Style Korean.

 

Hyggee All-In-One Tightening & Firming Mask

Pros:
Obviously, this is the other product I was referring to, which didn’t impress me much. But let me start by first saying what I liked about it, because there are a few. I really enjoyed wearing this mask for 30 minutes because the material was thick but soft, and it was soaked in 45mL of water-gel type essence. I also liked how it perfectly adhered to my skin and stayed in place because of the double ear loops. It partially covered my neck, too, because it had a neck patch. I have always wanted for sheet masks to include the neck because they say you should treat your neck the way you would treat your face. There was a bit of tenting on the sides of my nose, but nothing that a few snips could not fix.

Cons:
Now on to the results! I don’t know why the result of this mask for me was pretty mediocre. I mean, the ingredient list looks great, the material of the sheet mask was so nice, and there was more than enough essence inside, and yet the only difference I saw was a very slight brightening effect and possibly a very slight slimming/lifting effect, which may have been due to the literal lifting design of the sheet mask. But for a sheet mask that costs US$4 (200 PHP) each, I was expecting much more, like, you know, more plumped and radiant skin 💦 Well, it was supposed to be “tightening and firming”, so maybe it would yield more noticeable results for people with maturing skin. But for mine, it didn’t do much.

Both the Hyggee All-In-One Essence and Hyggee All-In-One Tightening & Firming Mask were from the Try Me Review Me Box, which was gifted to me by Style Korean in exchange for my honest reviews.
