Okay guys...nothing is more exciting than when I can try out a product from a brand I haven't yet and let you guys know all about it!  Thanks to the wonderful crew over at, I am now a part of their 3rd generation #beautifulpioneer program...which means I have the pleasure of reviewing for you Purpletale's 5 Steps To Lovely Skin Mask pack.

Purpletale's 5 Steps Mask pack...its a big one!

Here are the details.  Let's go!

Purpletale 5 Steps To Lovely Skin Complete Facial Solution.

Made in Korea.

From Purpletale - "Our 5-step complete facial solution will leave your skin feeling deeply nourished and looking absolutely lovely.  We combined RGII (which is extracted from ginseng saponin through advanced fermentation technology) with peptide complexes (protein fragments that signal the skin to produce more collagen) to leave your skin feeling firm and more radiant." - Purpletale

So this is going to make my skin feel amazing and its convenient?  Alright Purpletale, show me what you got!

Pre skincare.  Let's fix that, shall we?

So pre-treatment face.  Ive only cleaned eye area with micellar water due to eye makeup I was testing out earlier.  Skin is combo/oily.  I have a bit of redness around my cheeks and nose and some scarring from an acne attack about 2 weeks ago.  Oil buildup from being around the house and too lazy to blot my oily face that only you guys would see in this photograph :).

Step 1 - Cream foam cleanser.  No photo as this looked like your average creamy, foamy cleanser.  You need very little to get a good foam out of this.  I used the entire packet and it may have been a bit much as it was hard for me to get a nice foam initially.  My face felt SQUEAKY clean afterward, but also tight and dry.  Scent was a very typical, clean skincare smell.  Pretty and clean.  Not super pleased about that, but let's move on.

Step 2 - Ampoule

The ampoule was awesome.  A runny gel that absorbed into skin soon after application.  Skin was left with a bit of tack, but nothing that was uncomfortable or I felt would hinder the remaining products.  Just as the cleanser, this also shared in that skincare, clean smell.

Step 3 - Mask

Hydrogel mask, how much do I love thee...let me count the ways.  Alright, let me calm down.  5 Steps has a great 2 piece hydrogel mask as step 3.  For my face shape (wide face and big eyes usually make for not fun mask wearing sessions) this mask was a win.  The 2 piece made it easy to maneuver the mask in place to best suit my needs.  The hydrogel is SUPER thin, which is comfortable in the wear category, but tears easily when trying to place it.  I wore this for 30 minutes with no dripping and only slight drying.  There was a nice amount of essence left in the bag which I quickly used on my arms and decolletage.  After wear, skin was left brighter and oh so smooth. I also noticed the redness I had subsided.  The added effect of the hydrogel is that is immensely cooling.  Slight amount of tack left after wear.  This will definitely be in my summertime mask arsenal.

Step 4 - Facial Cream.

As the fourth step, the facial cream sealed in all the work we had previously done.  The texture was somewhere between thin and thick, moisturizing with a decent amount of slip.  Once I had blended it into my skin and let it soak for a sec, I then felt how soft my skin felt.  Felt like a basic cream, but was left with rather awesome results.  *the next morning, woke up to plump and softer skin.  No additional oiliness to report.*

Step 5 - Neck Cream

Same texture as the facial cream and same moisture giving formula. Easy to blend, quick to absorb and left my neck feeling supple.  This did leave behind a residue that I patted off.  With one use, it is hard to see results, but I did appreciate what moisture it imparted.


Verdict:  For convenience, you can't beat this.  All basic steps you need to address most of your skins needs in one packet.  For those wanting to start a multi-step skincare regimen, you will want to start here!  Everything was pretty easy to use and left me with bright, soft skin.  What else could you ask for?  I give this a 6/10.
