Before Ggultamin's launch in Jan 2019 Jan, the team has been testing many popular Korean sheet masks to bring to Singapore (I think we spent around $800 for sample testing 😆).
One of our findings was many Korean sheet masks are made for Korea’s dry season (Spring, Fall, and Winter), so it is very rich and sometimes too heavy for our weather. 😿 Over-nourishment always leads to clogged pores and brings us more troubles like breakouts! But we didn’t give up.
Ggultamin was the first product that all our team members really loved, had no breakouts, and could feel the “next morning effect”. We tested Ggultamin masks for about 4 weeks, not just 1 day!
If you are looking for a daily sheet mask, we highly recommend the Ggultamin series!
What I really love about Ggultamin Real Jel/Ampoule Masks!
Point 1. Personalize your Vitamin choice according to each day's skin needs. Ggultamin has 3 Vitamin types. Vitamin B for hydrating, Vitamin C for brightening and Vitamin E for soothing. Common Labs delicately customised each formula for your skin's concern, so its texture and sheet type is slightly different for each Vitamin choice.
Point 2. We love that Ggultamin has 2 steps! First step is mild peeling pad, followed by Vitamin sheet mask! What is the proper way to use a sheet mask? First thing is to prep your skin, so that your skin can absorb all the active ingredients from the mask. Mild peeling pad contains AHA and BHA that helps to get rid of dead skin cells that prevent the skin from absorbing nutrients. Consider it as gentle version of our bestselling Wish Formula C200 Bubble Peeling Pad.
Point 3. "Ggul" is "Honey" in Korean, and "Tamin" stands for "Vitamin". Ggultamin Real Jel/Ampoule Mask means it is a Honey based Vitamin sheet mask! Honey helps with skin elasticity, skin texture, absorption of nutrients, and soothing. Common Labs uses Manuka Honey in particular, which is known worldwide for its healing effect. Propolis rejuvenates the skin with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
Point 4. Not only is Ggultamin's essence quality excellent (deeply moisturises and soothes without stickiness! We love next morning glow!), its amount is so generous! The market average's sheet mask essence amount is 21ml, but Ggultamin Real Jel/Ampoule Mask essence is 27-33ml! Generous amount of gel/ampoule essence is another reason why we love it so much! I apply the remaining essence on neck and body!
*After masking, if there is remaining essence, I gently massage them into skin so it absorbs. If there is still remaining essence, I wipe away with cotton pad after soaking in toner. Don't wash off with water after masking. You are losing the nutritions that your Ggultamin gave.
Point 5. New generation sheet! Have you carefully checked what type of sheet your mask's brand uses? I really love that they use 3 different sheet types (Lyocell for Ggultamin B/ Cupra for Ggultamin C/ Nude Cell for Ggultamin E) to maximise the efficacy of its vitamin formula at its best. Of course, 1 sheet type is better for their cost structure, but they didn't choose the easy way. Plus, the adhesion power of all 3 sheet types is great and its fabric is so breathable, making it perfect for our weather!
