Is the Hanacure All-In-One Facial worth the faff?
Wading into the skincare world is complicated and often frustrating, even for the pros.
All the different products and complex ingredient combinations that make you feel like you need a chemistry qualification to understand them all often end up amounting to one expensive thing – trial and error.
What works for one person might not work for you based on your skin type, and if you don’t have the money to constantly cycle through products to find the perfect combo, you’re likely in for some frustration before you find the stuff that works for you.
That’s a big part of why, when an all-rounder product like the Hanacure All-In-One Facial is widely lauded, people take notice.
I, being curious and decidedly not in possession of perfect skin, decided to give it a try.
What is the Hanacure All-In-One Facial?
The Hanacure facial made some big waves in the beauty world, what with its celebrity endorsements from the likes of Drew Barrymore and members of the Kardashian Clan.
Its effects are also very shareable as it dries on your face and pulls it into an uncanny valley mask of yourself.
At $110.00 (Approx £82) for four applications, Hanacure doesn’t come cheap.
However, the reviews have been pretty glowing across the board, with the mask claiming to do pretty much everything (hence the ‘All-In-One part).
All told, it’s meant to help with:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Lifting & Firming
- Large Pores
- Clogged Pores
Before you apply your mask, you have to mix the ‘lifting serum’ together with the ‘gelling solution’ – this is a little fiddly but very straightforward.
The serum comes in a glass vial with a stubborn cap that eventually pops off to reveal a sort of pull tab which, as you pull it open, exposes sharp edges of aluminium that you’ll need to be wary of.
My tab came clean off the vial but using my shirt as a shield for my fingers, I could safely pull at the aluminium and the thing eventually came off.
After you mix the two ingredients, you simply apply the mask and wait for it to dry and tighten your face into a horror show.
As you can see, I looked less like an old lady (as many others did as the mask started to crack on their faces) and more like a slasher film villain.
Move over Michael Myers, there’s a new mask in town.
I’m going to preface this by saying my skin issues are: oil, acne, a bit of redness around the nose and large pores. Sigh.
Since trying the mask the day before yesterday, my acne does appear to be healing and I’ve got fewer bumps and blackheads along my cheeks and jawline, which is awesome, but while there is a small difference in my little forehead wrinkles, it’s barely perceptible.
I didn’t notice much of a difference in the size of my pores at first, but looking at the pics tells a different story.
My skin did feel a lot smoother and tighter in the hours afterwards, however, I was also left pretty pink and my skin felt kind of raw until the next morning, so you might not want to put this on the same day as a big event.
It’s also worth pointing out that my acne comes in (what I suspect are) hormonal waves, so it’s quite possible that it would be healing on its own by now anyway – based on what I know about how my skin behaves, my guess is that Hanacure has just boosted the healing process.
Is it worth the faff?
All things considered I’d say yes, the Hanacure mask is worth the faff.
It’s amusing seeing your face transformed into a Halloween mask, and mixing the ingredients isn’t that taxing.
The main inconvenience is waiting for it to arrive in the post, as you can only get the masks online from the Hanacure website and specific sellers – Hanacure’s FAQ page stipulates that you can’t get their products on eBay or Amazon, so don’t fall for dupes.
With that being said, if you’re looking to be absolutely blown away by the results, you might be better off trying multiple applications if you’ve got the cash to splash because the visible differences I’ve seen after one try have been pretty subtle.
