A few weeks ago, I purchased the Neogen Gold Black Caviar Essence and Gold Tox Tightening Pack from Memebox at the amazing price of $22.00 with free shipping ~ this deal is still going on and I do not know when it will expire. I purchased this as it seemed very similar to The Skin Factory’s 7-Second Masks, which I really enjoy quite a bit.
Official Brand Description
This premium skin care massage pack is used in many of the aesthetic centers in Gangnam Seoul and one treatment can cost up to US$300. You can now try it at home of your convenience and you will be surprised by its amazing result. The company research test showed skin texture improvements, brightening effect, and amazing skin lifting effects.
Neogen Code9 Gold Black Caviar Essence is a highly concentrated total care essence formulated with gold, caviar, super black complex and various naturally-derived and naturally-extracted low temperature ripened ingredients. It is a new type of skin care you use with 100% cotton pack pad coated with sub micro gold to reinforce skin elasticity and to give face brighter, silkier and plumper complexion.
Gold Tox Tightening Pack: A new, quick and easy treatment that exfoliates and peels away rough and dull looking dead skin cells and renews skin to bare perfection while functional ingredients penetrate more actively, these pack pads are designed with 3 layers structure of 100% cotton gauze sheet coated with sub micro gold plus cushion sheet plus ripple sheet, based upon the concept of traditional Brazilian threading, the ancient art of skin care.
Explanation of the Patented 3-layer structure of Gold Thread Lifting pads
- 1st layer – Mesh gauze with threading mechanism ~ Sub micro gold coating cotton gauze, crisscross lattice weaving make with 100% cotton and designed with similar cellular structure to skin so to remove dirt and dead cell
- 2nd layer – Sub micro gold cushion pad ~ Cushion sheet that presses gauze to the skin more effectively then improves skin elasticity and reduces irritation
- 3rd layer – Embossed pad for effective absorption ~ Embossed sheet that helps deliver essence into skin more effectively and nourishes skin with necessary nutrients, which provides similar effect of mask sheet pack.
Okay, got my box ~ woops ~ BOXES ~ what is this? A science experiment? OMG. I thought at first I ordered the wrong item because at the time I placed my order, I had NO clue what was involved here. All of the information here and photos ~ after I received this and was wondering the what I got myself into here.
After I unboxed it all, it wasn’t that bad. I have the main container with the pads and the solution in a jar. The tweezers and stand were things I wasn’t expecting, so not too bad. But fancy! I poured the gold black caviar essence (now known as soup mix) onto of the pack pads and then put the pad jar into the refrigerator for 9 hours ~ to stew in its own juices ~ haha. The essence smells like citrus, which does make sense due to all of the different citrus extracts that are in the ingredients. Thank goodness it doesn’t smell like fish eggs!
Before it went into the frig ~ you can see the little gold flecks in the soup mix there
So, after 9 hours (overnight for me), I then took a look at my science experiment
The soup mix is pretty much saturated into the pads and I can now pluck one out with my tweezers (or my fingers, I am not that worried about contamination, personally). The photo above is showing the cushion side, which is actually the 2nd step side of the pad.
This is the side that has a fine mesh and it actually has weaving threads through-out the pad. This is the 1st step side of the pad, which helps gently exfoliate dead skin cells and remove excess debris from my face. Once I apply that onto my face, gently massaging it and sweeping it around my face, I then flip it over to the cushioned side, where I again sweep the essence over my face, starting from my nose and sweeping outward and then from my chin and sweep upward. I gently pat in the essence into my skin to complete this skincare routine.
I store my jar in the refrigerator, because there is no instruction stating otherwise. I happen to really like these pads. They are similar in concept to the The Skin Factory’s 7-Second Masks, but not the same as their ingredients are different. The principle behind them with the exfoliating pad on one side and a gentle padded side to smooth out the skin is the same. Neogen markets their product as a 9 in 1 function with peeling + pack + toner + emulsion + essence + cream + massage + wrinkle & whitening + detox tightening item and Skin Factory is very similar. I do find the Neogen to be more “rich” in terms of hydration and moisturizing, which is why I use them in my night time skincare regime.
How do I like them? So far, I do like them. The ease of using them and also the deep hydration of the essence into my skin refreshes and moisturizes very well. I actually like using these at night time as part of my evening skin care regime. I don’t use the exfoliating pad around my eyes, but the cushioned side I do pat in the essence around my eyes to help with the fine lines. I haven’t seen any “tightening” or “whitening” but I have noticed that my skin is more brighter and hydrated when I use these.
Yes, I typed out the list of ingredients, cause I am a nerd. Yes, this has 71 ingredients. I ran this list through cosDNA.com and found no triggers for my skin type. This product looks to be a good one for all skin types, barring any allergies to specific ingredients.
