Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack Rice Sleeping Pack Review
Hey Dreamers and Creators!
To kick off the first Mask Monday of 2016, I've decided to do 2 mask reviews. The first is Leaders Insolution Coconut Gel Mask with Tomato and the second is this Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack Rice Sleeping Pack.
Innisfree has 2 Capsule Recipe Pack lines. One is the sleeping pack line and the other is their wash-off pack line. This Rice one is from their sleeping pack line. So far, I've tried a few from each line and I think most of them are pretty decent. I've found a few that I really like and one of them even made it into my emergency skincare kit. So, how did this Rice Sleeping Pack fare? Well, read on to find out.

Packaging: The Rice Sleeping Packs comes in little black-brown capsule containers. They look like all the other capsule recipe packs. The main difference is the lid. This Rice has a cream white color and features rice as its ingredient picture. The sleeping packs are also noted as 'sleeping pack' on their packaging. The back of the sleeping pack have some information in Korean. Like all capsule recipe packs, these comes with the built in slit for reseal purposes. However, as I've mentioned in past reviews, the slit doesn't really help with reseal. Instead, it's easily to use another lid or a small object (like the size of a Dollywink quad eyeshadow) to keep the lid closed.
Scent: I laughed when I took a whiff of this sleeping pack. I expected some sort of rice scent, cause you know, it's rice. However, what I got wasn't expected at all. Yes, it does smell like rice but very minimally. I did notice this sleeping pack contains fragrance and I wondered how it would work out. Well, it turns out, the added fragrance is a bit sweet and floral. So the overall scent comes out to be sweet rice with floral notes. I personally don't mind the scent but some people might not like it.
Color: The sleeping pack looks white in color. However, once applied, it doesn't leave any color behind.
Texture: This sleeping pack reminds me of the green tea sleeping pack in that it's got little bits inside. This Rice Sleeping Pack has little white lumps inside. The lumps blends nicely and gets absorbed into the skin easily.
My Thoughts: Initially, I worried that this sleeping pack would be too moisturizing for my combo to oily skin (like the Pomegranate Bubble ones). However, it turned out quite nicely. The Rice sleeping pack comes with little white lumps that needs a bit of massaging to help it melt into the skin. However, once massaged, it absorbed into my skin easily on both my drier cheeks and slightly oily T-zone. I did apply less on the T-zone area and a bit more of the cheeks, so that probably helped too.
The first thing I noticed when I woke up was that this sleeping pack didn't make me oily. Even my T-zone area was nice and moisturized but not oily. When I walked to my mirror I could see that the pack really did brighten my skin. It also lessened my redness a bit, which is super awesome! I liked that it kept my face moisturized all night and even after I washed it off with lukewarm water in the morning, my face still seemed moisturized. My face also felt soft and plump in the morning, which is nice.
Let's talk about the scent of this mask because I have a feeling that the scent is going to be a hit or miss for most people. I shared above that I laughed when I first took a whiff of this Rice Sleeping Pack. The scent mixture seemed a bit odd at first but it gets better and seems to grow on you. However, I think it can also have the opposite effect as well. This rice pack does smell like rice, mixed with some sweet and custardy like scents, and hints of floral notes. It definitely falls under the unique scent category. Surprisingly, I don't mind it. Although there are nights when I get hungry after I apply this mask.
Like most Capsule Recipe Packs, these Rice Sleeping Packs lasts about 3 to 5 uses or sometimes more depending on how much or how less you use each time. I've found that most of my packs last me about 5 uses, with the exceptions of some lasting 6 uses. What drew me toward these packs was its size. The small containers makes it travel friendly and I can just pack the small size instead of a large sleeping pack. The downside for these packs is its resealing design, which I've mentioned previously. It just doesn't work. Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives, so it doesn't seem like a big issue.
-softens and plump
-can help to reduce redness
-easy to use
-unique scent, might not be suitable for everyone
My Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Final Thoughts: I really like these Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack Rice Sleeping Packs. When I patch tested I worried that they would end up like the Pomegranate bubbles ones that made me oily. However, I'm happy that these didn't. Instead they just moisturized, brightened, and softened my skin. I like that it was able to lessen the redness on my face a bit as well. My skin felt nice and supple every morning after and the effects lasts all day.
Would I repurchase these in the future? Yeppers! I didn't think I would end up liking these as much as I do. I've already stocked up on a couple and I will purchase more in the future. Do I think these Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack Rice Sleeping Pack are worth a try? Yes, but buy 1 or 2 to test first. As I've mentioned above, the scent of this mask will most likely be a hit or miss for most people. So it's best to buy 1 or 2 to test out first before stocking up on them. I will say that if you are looking for a sleeping pack that can brighten, moisturize, and soften the skin, then this is definitely worth a try.
