As much as I love sheet masks, patches have never really agreed with me; it’s probably more like I never agree with them. I suppose a big reason I should probably stop buying patches is because I use them once and that’s it. But that’s just my personality; when it comes to sheet masks, even, I have to really love the mask to buy the entire box, rather than just individual sheets. As a one-time user, the CosRX Apple Zone Power Patches were ineffective for me.
My skin type
Oily skin with large pores and blackheads on my cheeks
What it’s supposed to do
The package consists of two hydrogel patches that are supposed to brighten and moisturize your under eye area and cheeks.
Water, Glycerin, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Butylene Glycol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Adenosine, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Filtrate, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Verbena Officinalis Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Allantoin, Carrageenan, Cellulose Gum, Mannan, Sodium Anisate, Caprylyl Glycol, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Perfume
How I use it
The patches are quite slippery but as soon as I managed to get them out of the package, I plopped them on my face. They weren’t super soaked in essence but they were still slippery. I found I had to stay still with these; moving around trying to do other things is not recommended.
How long I used it
Once, for 20 minutes
Short term results
I didn’t notice any difference at all, in brightening or moisturizing. If I had more of these, I would double mask with the patches using some other brightening mask and the Daiso Silicone Mask Cover.
Long term results
Not applicable; I would not repurchase these for long term use and from the looks of availability, it looks like US retailers are phasing out sales of this product.
