Pure Smile Choosy Lip Packs in Milk and Honey
Bought for: Free | SRP: P40/each
Bought from: Althea Korea
The last time I made a haul from Althea, I made sure to pick up something I haven't tried out before, as in, not once, never. One of those are the famous hydrogel type lip packs--something beauty enthusiasts are currently going gaga over. Also, I believe it's one of the latest innovation in the name of skin care that are popularizing nowadays through the aid of internet as I'm seeing a lot of these types every time I go online shopping. Without thinking straight anymore, I jumped into the bandwagon and bought myself a couple to try.
I never paid attention to my puckers before even though this is the most sensitive part of my face. Most of the products I put over it, even lip balms, tends to make it dry and chapped. I always am tempted to peel the loose skin and ended up bleeding. I know I gotta stop because I noticed that it became darker and uneven in color and I can't even put a lipstick on (especially those lovely mattes!) because they just accentuate the dryness of my lips. It's time to pay extra attention to it and after trying out Pure Smile Choosy Lip Packs, I know I gotta store some more for future use.

These lip packs comes in colorful sachets and is intended for a single use. There were minimal information that I can read because almost everything is written in Korean. For someone like me who likes reading products especially the ingredients, claims and directions, this is a bit disappointing.
Applying these lip packs are super easy. You just have to take out the hydrogels from the sachets, slowly peel it from the lid attached to it and put it on the lip area. These easily sticks on the skin once you pressed the product onto it. After a few minutes, remove the hydrogel. Take out the sachet and apply the excessive essence onto your lips to seal in moisture.
The scent of these lip packs, I believe, varies depends on the flavor. Milk smells like milk, honey smells like honey but very subtle. They are not heavily-fragranced and are neither overwhelming.
Since these lip packs comes in hydrogel type, they are very soft and bouncy to the touch like silicones. They feel like they are made of the same material; the only difference are the scent and color. The milk variant comes in a transparent hydrogel while honey's in yellow. They both adhere to the skin very well. The hydrogels are moist enough to hydrate the lips once you put it on your skin and dries thinner once the moisture soaked into it completely.
These products are loaded with Collagen, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Jojoba Oil that effectively restores hydration to the lips and helps repair damages. It felt cooling upon application and easily relieves pain on my lips. It taste a bit sweet as well so you won't have to fear applying products like this. I believe this is what I badly needed to restore my once pinkish and smooth lips. I tried the Milk variant first and you can clearly see down below the state of my lips before I apply the mask. There were bright red spots which resulted from me peeling the loose skin. I also have terrible case of dark and uneven lip pigmentation due to sensitivity to lip products.
Three days after, I applied my second pack, the Honey variant which contains high amount of Royal Jelly Extract and Allantoin known to soothe skin and makes it glowing. You can clearly see down below how huge the improvement was in terms of my lip appearance! I think I need not to say more lol. Just a heads ups, I also use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with the Lip Packs to give more moisture to my lips.
I love Pure Smile Choosy Lip Packs and I definitely would repurchase other variants or even those from other brands to see which one is the better. I am currently eyeing the one from Pilaten since they are more affordable, well, let's see! But I do highly recommend these products to those who are looking for effective lip treatments that hydrates the lips and keep it soft and smooth without any hassle. Do not take your lips for granted, it needs masks every now and then too!
