Admittedly, I am long overdue for a review of the Hanacure face mask. I have been raving about the Hanacure face mask for the last 18 months since I first tried it with a good girlfriend and too many glasses of our favorite Rosé. I know, I’m rolling my eyes too.
But since that evening, I’ve continued to use the Hanacure face mask on repeat because I just can’t get enough of the zombie effect. Kidding.
I continue to use it because, quite frankly, it works.

In case you’ve been living under a K-Beauty rock and haven’t heard of the Hanacure face mask, let me break it down for you.
Hanacure is a South Korean skincare brand that became popular a few years ago thanks to the magic of Instagram and celebs like Drew Berrymore, who was an early promoter of the All-In-One Facial.
It has since received high praise from the likes of Bazaar, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Self, Glamour, and countless others.
Why? Because the Hanacure All-In-One Facial does exactly what it promises to.
It makes a noticeable difference in my skin.
Like, glowing, radiant, 10 years younger kind of difference.
The Hanacure All-In-One Facial comes in a delightful little kit (single-use option is available if you have commitment issues). It includes lifting gel serum ampoules, gel packs, a reusable brush, and single-use samples of Hanacure’s amazing Nano Emulsion lotion in quantities of 1-4 depending on which option you purchase.
The packaging is very high quality and feels luxurious the moment you open the box, which I love. And mixing and applying the facial feels a little like performing a science experiment, another bonus.
The Hanacure All-In-One Facial is designed to fight the most common skin concerns with innovative age-defying technology. (Think fine lines & wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dullness, etc.).
For me, the idea of potentially reducing the appearance of fine lines without Botox had me sold.
But none of this means much without a little cold, hard, evidence. Am I right?
Lucky for you, I snapped a couple of before and after photos during one of my many uses of the Hanacure All-In-One Facial. And even one during one of these said treatments… I couldn’t resist.
In the photo above, you’ll see I have noticeable lines and wrinkles around my eyes. Sigh. I am smiling enthusiastically in both the before and after photos to ensure my wrinkles may be seen. Transparency is key.
I have a bit of hyperpigmentation around my nose, cheeks, and chin and, while it’s difficult to see here, I also have large pores on my nose and chin.

Looking my best here, obvi. Ideally you shouldn’t move, like at all, during the treatment. In this round I did a pretty good job at that as there is minimal cracking.
It should be noted that my eyes and mouth were stretched open and I was actually unable to close either at this particular moment. That’s how tight it is.
What you can’t see in this amateur bathroom selfie is how soft and supple my skin feels. It is more even, the pores on my nose are minimized, and there is a radiance that was not there before.
The appearance of the finest lines is definitely minimized, and my skin feels tight but not dry. You can even see that I am still a bit flushed after using it, and this was taken about 30 minutes after the treatment.
I have sensitive skin and turn red very easily. Full disclosure, I sometimes turn bright red when I use the Hanacure face mask. Other times I don’t. The first time I used it I found this slightly alarming, but the redness went away in about 20 minutes and my skin was glowing.
In summary, believe the hype.
I can’t go so far as to say that the results are as good as injectables, but the Hanacure mask is a great alternative to Botox for sure. Especially when a pandemic prevents you from getting your regular beauty treatments.
As a bonus, it is also a fun way to scare your animals. You’re welcome.Shop Now
