My 14-Day Skincare Detox + Hydrate Challenge

By Minji

  • I tried the a 14-day detox + hydrate challenge by applying the Soffli Detox + Hydrate Sheet Mask, every night for 14 days!
  • Can you see the difference in the before and after pics?
  • My skin feels like mochi, and looks brighter and smoother than it ever has!

Let’s be honest. No skincare product is going to work miracles on your skin – not even our beloved SOFFLI products! Despite the seductive marketing language and often hard to believe before-and-after pictures you see on social media today, skincare just doesn’t work that way. If it did, it would be considered analogous to a medical device and certainly be more strictly regulated by the FDA.

My consistent advice when it comes to picking out the right skincare products, is to make sure you take a look at the ingredients list to find clean products made with quality and integrity that are reasonably priced instead of falling for brands that promise a miracle in a jar…often a $100+ jar!

What does work and will give you results, is consistent application and care. In particular, many of my friends from Seoul (as obsessed with skincare as me!), tell me that the biggest bang for the buck comes from daily (or as close to daily as possible) application of a well-formulated sheet mask.

As much as I love a good sheet mask and use them regularly, I personally had never applied them on a daily basis. First, it takes dedication and time. Also, it feels a little wasteful to indulge in one every.single.day. 

However, with our monthly theme of “detox” for March, I decided to take on this challenge. I used the SOFFLI Detox + Hydrate Facial Sheet Mask without skipping a day for 14-days straight. It depends on your personal preference since they can be used both morning or night, but I personally like to wash my face at night, use the sheet mask as step 0 of my routine, then move on to step 1 toner, then step 2 serum, etc. After two weeks, below is what I found.

I started out with talking about incredulous before-and-after pics, but do you notice a difference between the picture on the left and the right? Again, it might not be immediately noticeable from just the picture, but I experienced a clear difference and benefit.

My skin feels like mochi now … like it’s been infused with more water than ever and is plumping out my skin.  Our sheet masks contain hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 times its weight in water, so I guess that makes sense, but the 14-day straight consistent application really amplified the effect.

My skin also looks brighter and more even than ever. I’m really loving the healthy skin tone this 14-day challenge has brought me. My skin looks and feels clearer and more detoxed…which could all be in my head, but also could be attributed to the detoxifying properties of the bamboo charcoal and high concentration of niacinamide in the sheet masks.

All in all, it took a lot of diligence and care, but I’m extremely happy with the results of this 14-day skincare detox + hydrate challenge.  Considering the costs and time involved, I wouldn’t recommend any one do this on the regular. However, if you want a pick me up or special “cleanse” with the change of seasons, or if you’re ever looking to get prepared for a big event (maybe like your wedding day?), you might want to consider it. It’s sure to make your skin look and feel amazing.  

Pick up a few boxes of our amazing sheet masks, give it a try and let us know how it goes, we'd love to hear from you!
