Review: Beauty Mask Treatments from Hair to Toe

Today's review is not an ordinary mask review. As you can see from the title of this post, I will be doing a full set review on home beauty mask treatments by KOCOSTAR which I use to pamper myself from head to toe. I'm so excited to share about it! 

KOCOSTAR, or better known as the "Korea Cosmetic Star" is currently available in over thousands stores at more than 20 countries worldwide, and now it finally arrives at Malaysia and is available across all Sephora outlets nationwide.

KOCOSTAR offers 12 types of creative and innovative masks altogether, from head to toe! 

The idea of doing masks for the hair, face, hands, nails and legs is totally mind-blowing! I mean, KOCOSTAR impresses me with its extensive collection of masks that I have not seen before.

The innovative team behind KOCOSTAR has found this fabulous way to make our skin young and supple, our hair nourished and silky, our feet soft and smooth, as well as our nails healthy and sparkly….. Just by doing mask? YES!

The best part is, we don’t have to spend a bomb at the salons for these! KOCOSTAR mask range is priced from RM18 to RM42, which I find them very affordable and wallet-friendly.

Fruit / Vegetable Slice Mask @ RM18 per sheet

This is the freshest mask you should ever try! I assume this is meant for the face, but guess what, it is more than that! The Slice Mask is a fruit-and-vegetable sliced conceptual mask sheet which you can use piece by piece on the face, neck, arms, legs or wherever necessary!

It comes in 4 types: Lemon, Watermelon, Cucumber, Tomato 

All the 4 variants in the Slice Mask series are super cute and colorful, each resembling different types of fruits that deliver beauty goodness.

Lemon: Lighten and brighten skin tone, and improve radiance.

Watermelon: Hydrate and refresh the skin.

Cucumber: Boost the skin with rich Vitamin C content and improve moisture.

Tomato: Boost radiance and improve moisture.

When I am on vacation, I will make sure I bring along one of these slice masks to keep my skin hydrated and rejuvenated. My favourite is Watermelon as it gives a quick boost of moisture and "fresh" sensation on the skin instantly.

How To Use: Apply slice by slice, over cleansed skin / targeted areas. 

For the best result, I prefer using this 3-4 times a week as my skin needs more nourishment due to the long hours sitting in the air-conditioned room.

Function: ★★★★☆
It works well as a quick remedy for dry and tired skin, in a very fun way of course! The round slices are easy to apply on any skin area, especially the neck area which normal mask cannot reach.

Texture: ★★★
The thick cotton mask texture helps deliver moisture and refreshing effects without any stickiness.

Fragrance: ★★★
It really smells like the fruit itself! So yummy but not edible :P

What I like: ★★★★☆

Refreshing and soothing to the skin. Easy to use on any face and neck area I want.

Verdict: Generally, I think they are great for night use, especially after a long day out, to soothe the tired skin. As for the moisturizing effect, I don’t see much on the face, but mostly on the neck.

Ggongji Hair Pack @ RM18
Home Salon Hair Pack @ RM28
Long Hair Pack @ RM42

How To Use: Just "wear" the mask onto towel-dried hair for 20 minutes,
to create soft and silky locks.

Now, moving on to the hair mask, there are 3 variants altogether, specially catered for dry and damaged hair. Ggongji Hair Pack is the most basic type among them but it works well as a quick solution to nourish, hydrate and soothe the hair. The result? Smooth and tame tresses like a “Ggongji’ (which means “ponytail” in Korean)!

My first try on Home Salon Hair Pack is pretty satisfying!

But if you prefer something richer and more nourishing, the Home Salon Hair Pack is highly recommended. It uses professional hair salon technology to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate dry, damaged hair.

Function: ★★★★☆
It is so easy to wear and it allows the nutrients to wrap the whole hair and slowly absorb into it.

Texture: ★★
The texture is creamy thick like any good quality hair mask.
It literally feels like applying "lotion" onto the hair.

Fragrance: ★★★
It is packed with sensual aroma that makes my hair smells so good too.

What I like: ★★★★☆
After rinsing off, it leaves the hair with silky smooth finish and healthy look.

It combines the 3 powerful ingredients – Argan Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter – to form a protective layer for nutrients and prevents future damages.  

If you have long hair, try the Long Hair Pack. It functions similarly as the Home Salon Hair Pack, but the volume content is higher, hence sufficient for long hair.

Foot Peeling Pack @ RM42
Foot Moisture Pack @ RM18

I have been using foot masks for some time now, and I always love the effect of “renewing” my skin into soft, baby-like skin. KOCOSTAR’s Foot Peeling Pack is an intense, soothing treatment of botanical extracts to exfoliate and repair stressed feet while softening and smoothing the skin’s surface for soft, smooth feet.

But be careful, dead skin will peel off the feet naturally after 3-4 days to “renew” the skin. Personally, I find it very useful to get rid of dead skin cells / slight callus. 

But during my vacation, I only bring along the Foot Moisture Pack because I know vacations always make my feet sore and dry (Too much of walking for long hours!). It looks like two huge socks and all I do is just wear on the feet and seal tightly at the edge.

Function: ★★★★☆
It seals the feet with moisturising lotion, without any sticky residue.
A little massage will help for better absorption.

Texture: ★★
The texture is pretty much like "lotion-filled socks", which it feels "slippery" in the socks.

Fragrance: ★★★
It is scent-less, but great for those who love it this way.

What I like: ★★★★☆
As the mask relaxes my feet, it also replenishes the feet with moisture.
Just perfect to end my day with this treatment.

Verdict: Recommended for those who need a quick hydration. It works well on the feet with its moisturizing and soothing effect in just 20 minutes.

Hand Moisture Pack @ RM18
Instant hydration and protection on both hands.

5-finger Nail Pack @ RM20
An intense, soothing treatment of botanicals and vitamins to protect and repair stressed nails
while strengthening nails against splitting and peeling.

Nail Art Starter @ RM25
It nourishes and moisturizes the hand when using nail polish or UV/LED lamps during nail care.

This is the cutest hand glove I’ve seen! Similar to the foot mask, KOCOSTAR has hand and nail masks too.

How to use: Wear the Hand Moisture Pack for 20 minutes 

Function: ★★★★☆
It moisturises the skin without any sticky residue. During this hand mask treatment, I can still play
with my smartphone, work on my laptop etc. So convenient that I can do this mask anytime I like!

Texture: ★★
It feels similar to how I usually apply hand lotion but with the gloves,
the hand cream feels richer on the hands. Hence, the absorption is much better.

Fragrance: ★★★
It is almost scentless, but good for those who love it this way.

What I like: ★★★★☆
It seals the palm with lots of moisture. Better than any hand cream I've tried!

My KOCOSTAR Experience
1. Overall, it is a great, affordable homecare solution for pampering yourself. I personally prefer this and I can now save my trip (plus loads of money and time) from visiting beauty salons. ❤ 
2. I hope KOCOSTAR can add the lips mask into its collection in future too.
3. My favourite products? Definitely the Home Saloon Hair Pack!

KOCOSTAR is available across all Sephora stores in Malaysia.
