There's a Korean skin care product that is being used in a very interesting way.
YouTubers are taking it upon themselves to take part in this 'peel-off foundation' trend, using a product called Real Skin Patch and it's kind of gross.
According to the description on Amazon, the purpose of this product is to relieve sensitive spots against pollution and is available on the site for $19.89.
But Youtubers are saying that it can be used as a barrier from the makeup and the skin. Since most makeup products stick to the face and cause acne, this product's capabilities will allegedly block the skin from any breakouts. After applying the product and then your normal foundation, you are able to peel it all off and it's said to be therapeutic.
Youtuber, Raye Boyce, found out about this Korean skin care product on Instagram. She decided to put it to the test, in a 'first impressions' type of video, and things got interesting!
Raye started off by applying the skin patch just one time, with her hands, and then waited for it to dry. After, she went in with her foundation and realized that her foundation was already starting to peel off, especially on her chin area.
The combination of product and foundation didn't exactly mix that well, making Raye doubt her choice in purchasing this 'hyped up' product she found through social media.
After the first fail, Raye decided to start over. But this time, she applied a thinner layer of the skin patch.
It seemed that all was going well...until it started to peel off on the side of her jaw. Yikes!
In her final attempt to make this stuff work, she avoided the foundation brush and used a sponge to apply the foundation over the real skin patch.
But even after all 3 attempts, the product still did not come through... and her contour and highlight got ruined!
It left her skin looking a bit scaly and rough. Along with that, it also showed harsh lines and did not blend in.
Another Youtuber, Thataylaa, decided to also try out the product and got the same negative results. Taylor mentioned how it automatically peeled off from the chin and the center area of her face; She does not recommend trying out the skin patch.
Both YouTubers agreed that it just causes more issues than solutions to the makeup game. In the end, the Real Skin Patch, was a fail!
The concept for this seems like an attempt at innovative makeup, but it did freak me out a bit when I first saw it. I personally do not want to spend $20 for this type of a product, especially when it makes the makeup look very cakey. That's just not the kind of makeup look I'm trying to achieve...
