I picked up 4 of the Innisfree capsule recipes. Today I’ll be sharing the review of their ‘Bija and Aloe’ variant. Let’s get started!
Price: USD $ 2.50 (and INR 170) for 10 ml
My Experience with Innisfree Bija and Aloe Sleeping Pack Capsule Recipe Pack:
This capsule recipe pack comes in a jar form. The green colored seal and the little logo tells you what the pack is made of. The back has a sticker that tells you what the pack is supposed to do, its ingredients, and so on. The capsule is really small and once you open the seal, it doesn’t fully get closed, so you do have to find a way to keep the contents preserved. But the packaging is kind of cute and, if unopened, safe to travel with.
The quantity provided is way too less. It’s hardly a tablespoon of the product. So I find that to be a bit disappointing. Anyway, the pack looks like light gel and feels like one too. It has a slight green colour and smells nice. The fragrance is mild. It stays on for quite a long time. The consistency is thin and resembles that of very thin (almost watery) aloe vera gel, as mentioned earlier. It glides on evenly on the skin. It doesn’t dry out on the skin. In fact it stays put for 1 hour after which is slowly starts to dry.
It doesn’t dry out completely and then your skin feels stretchy. No, that doesn’t happen with this one. It is slightly sticky when you touch it even after a couple of hours. The pack is supposed to be kept on for the entire night. So, I washed my face, pat it with a towel and applied this mask on my face and massaged it for a minute in circular motions. To my surprise, I only required one fourth of the product to cover my face and half neck. I did apply a nice layer on my face and still the little amount did go a long way.
It did burn on the tops of my cheekbone for 5 minutes. It wasn’t too harsh, just mild irritation. I thought I’ll take out the mask, but thought of giving the mask some time. So I did and the burning sensation stopped. I did not notice any redness after that or breakouts. This mask says that it soothes skin and supplies moisture; did that, no doubt! But it also added a healthy glow to my face. The result lasted only a day as I travel quite a bit. But at last this capsule recipe did something to my face!

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Innisfree Bija and Aloe Sleeping Pack Capsule Recipe Pack?
I wouldn’t repurchase. I don’t know how it’ll work on other skin types, so I’m not too sure about recommending it to someone!
