[Review] Holika Holika – honey sleeping pack canola

Hello everyone,

maybe you remember my HAULy friday blog post in which I showed you some korean skin care products I found at my local TK maxx a while ago.

After trying them out for a while I want to review them for you one by one. First up is the Holika Holika Honey sleeping pack, which is available in 3 variations.

In this post:

  • introduction to Holika Holika

Introduction to Holika Holika

Holika Holika is a relatively new korean brand. They offer decorative cosmetics and skin care products. The company was founded in Korea in 2010 and since then has been expanding successfully on the global market. Holika Holika offers high-quality products at reasonable prices, made from high-quality ingredients. Their packaging is really cute and mostly aimed at young consumers and their modern lifestyle.

Overview of the honey sleeping pack variations

The Holika Holika Honey sleeping pack comes in 90 ml pots and the variations canola, acerola and blueberry.

In addition to the picture above I looked up their different impact on the skin as well as the ingredients of each of them. All of them are rich in honey, which provides essential nutrients to the skin.

The price varies from shop to shop, as you can see in the ones linked below. I was quite shocked to see that it is available for ~9 € in Germany, but 18 $ in the USA and Canada. Like I said, I picked up the canola version at my local TK maxx and paid around 10 € for it.

In Germany this Holika Holika mask is available here or if you are as lucky as me, you can find it at TK maxx. In the USA and Canada the mask is available here.

I really love the packaging, which is supposed to remind you of a beehive. The texture is yellow-ish and gel-like, also a bit tacky.

You apply this mask pack after cleansing and toning your face in the evening and leave them on while you are sleeping. In the morning do not wipe off, but instead rinse it off with water.

Conclusion: what I think

Honestly, I was a bit sceptical. Usually I sleep on my side and was worried that I would smear the product everywhere, waking up having it in my hair and all over my pillow 😀
Surprisingly there was no mess at all. As advised I rinsed it off after waking up and my skin will felt so much smoother, softer and nourished. The scent is very subtile and pleasant. I had no reaction like tingling or redness and the mask also did not break me out.

I am really pleased with it and love to use it especially during winter when my skin needs the extra moisture.

I hope this post was helpful, let me know about your experience with the honey sleeping pack in the comments.
