Review: Skinfood Gold Caviar Nutrition Mask

7. July 2013
Here is a sample of Skinfood’s Gold Caviar Nutrition Mask, which I got with my last order at W2Beauty (here). The sample contains quite some product so you can use this mask for around 3 times which is really great for trying out.

Here is the description of the product taken from Skinfood’s web page:
A total care nutrient mask that leaves the skin full of youth and vitality by managing the wrinkle, nutrient, resilience and moisturizing care through caviar and gold ingredients.

* To Use

Apply evenly onto the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose and massage in an outward motion starting from the center.
After 5~10 minutes of massaging, wipe away with tissue or rinse with lukewarm water.
The packaging of the sample sachet is very typical for Skinfood, with its vintage style colors and design. The full size product comes in a very nice jar with a golden lid. It looks really noble, as all products from the Gold Caviar Line appear to be.
The product has a heavy cream-gel texture with a gluey consistency. I didn’t like the scent of the Gold Caviar Nutrition Mask. It was a scent which reminded me of rancid oil or something similar. And since you have to massage the mask into your skin for quite a while the scent is rather obvious and annoying :/ Did anyone try this mask, too, and had the same experience with the scent?
After applying onto your skin and massage it, the sticky texture turns into oil and makes massaging really easy. This mask is indeed very nourishing. It is also very heavy in my eyes. I guess it is good for mature skin. I won’t recommend it for oily skin, but I think it will be great on people with really rough and dry spots. After washing my face with water it left the skin very soft.
Personally I won’t repurchase it, I guess my skin doesn’t need this kind of heavy nourishing skincare yet.
The full sized jar contains 90 g and costs US$ 32.72 at W2beauty. If you use my link or the sponsor code 088505 for registration at W2Beauty you’ll get a 5.00 $ voucher after registration and you can use it immediately for each purpose from US$ 30 onwards. So would pay around 28 US$ in total.

    Hey, habe gerade gesehen, dass Du auch aus Deutschland kommst – daher antworte ich einfach mal auf Deutsch (^_^): Vielen Dank für die Nominierung zum Versatile Blogger Award. Ist zwar schon ein ganzes Weilchen her, aber ich bin jetzt erst dazu gekommen Dir zu antworten ♪

    Skinfood gehört auch zu meinen Lieblingsmarken in Sachen Asia Kosmetik. Habe mich dieses Jahr echt aufgregt, weil ich den Store in der riesen Mall einfach nicht gefunden habe und somit ohne etwas von Skinfood wieder heimwärts flog (T_T). Nun ja, zumindest mein Lieblingslippenstift hält noch ein ganzes Weilchen vor :3

    Liebe Grüße

      Ich wünschte ich wäre überhaupt mal irgendwo gewesen wo es einen Skinfood laden gibt XD wahrscheinlich würde ich aber dann auch viel zu viel Geld ausgeben :D auch nicht optimal…
      Was ist denn dein Lieblings Lippenstift?

    thank you for the review, fraulein ^^

    • Fräulein Schnee 8. July 2013 at 9:07

      I’ll be 30 next year and I’m hoping I won’t need products that nourishing at that point, haha…but in principle you’re right :D

    Sorry to hear about the scent, that’s really bizarre. Maybe the product had gone bad? :/ Oh well. Atleast it worked well~

    • Fräulein Schnee 8. July 2013 at 9:04

      I was thinking about this point and I looked instantly for a manufacturing date but there was nothing written on it…I hope someone who knows other gold caviar products will read this review and comment if the scent is normal :D

  • Eve 8. July 2013 at 17:42

    I think the scent is enough to turn me off. haha

    Oh wow, I wasn’t expecting this product to have that sort of scent, makes me not wanna try it anymore ;_; I guess there aren’t that many ways to make fish eggs smell good D: thanks for the review though, I think I’ll skip this one haha

    • Fräulein Schnee 9. July 2013 at 10:46

      that maybe the point…Honestly I don’t know how Caviar smells anyway :D
