Skinfactory 7 Seconds Morning Sheet Review (Plus 7 Seconds Homme and Rose Wine Ampoule Mask)

 I get lots of products in my Memeboxes. Some of them I am tempted to try right away, and others I store in my secret lair of Korean beauty products (under my bed) until I have a chance to use up some other things first. Occasionally, I'll see a product that is so interesting that I immediately add it into my skincare routine so I can kill my undying curiosity.
I received the Mask #4 box awhile ago, and never got around to doing a review. For some reason, my box was held up for quite awhile by the time I got it, I just wanted to dig into everything and pretty much forgot about the fact that I'm a blogger and you know, pictures are kind of a thing that I do. Rambling aside, inside this particular box, was a jar of 7 Seconds Morning Sheets from the company Skinfactory.

I had never heard of this company prior to receiving these, but I was intrigued nonetheless. The idea was that these little "sheets" would take the place of a few different products to save time and energy in the morning during ones skincare routine. And while I have a 13-step nighttime routine, my morning one is a LOT faster. I am usually rushing around like a crazy person trying to get out the door on time, so this product spoke to me on a spiritual level, people.
This container (the one pictured has clearly already been opened and used abundantly) contains 20 different "sheets" that are used after cleansing to do the following things: whiten, help keep away those pesky wrinkles, prep your skin for makeup, massages off dead skin cells and helps promote circulation and takes the place of your toner, moisturizer and essence.

 From Skinfactory
Saccharomyces/Platinum Ferment helps maintain your skins natural elasticity. Niacinamide and Adenosine whiten skin and reduce wrinkles. This product has a container custom-made for its fermented ingredients. those ingredients are: Wine extract, bacillus/soybean ferment extract, beta-glucan, rice ferment filtrate (sake), and bifida ferment filtrate. 40 ingredients, including Ecocert Anthemis Nobilis flower water, apple fruit extract, grapeseed extract, saccharomyces/ platinum ferment, and patented ingredient COS-5 COMPLEX and SKINPIA-10 help to moisturize, tone, balance, exfoliate and calm your skin. 

This product does not contain the 10 common ingredients that can be harmful to your skin:
Parabens, phenoxyethenol, sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, trethanolamine, mineral oil, silicon, ethanol, BHT and talc.

The great thing about Skinfactory products is that NONE of them contain the prior 10 "harmful ingredients." Score!

It says "refrigerator" on the label because it's suggested that you keep these little guys in the fridge so they're nice and cool when you use them, and so that they stay fresher, longer. I am on another level of lazy and don't feel like bringing these back and forth to the fridge, so I just keep them in a cool, dry place.

 These jars have a little plastic lid that you peel back to discover a little pull top lid. There's also a cute little brochure and a metal pair of tweezers to pick up the sheets. These definitely come in handy, because the sheets are extremely saturated with product.
Once you pull the metal lid off, you'll see the 20 "sheets" contained inside. They don't have an offensive smell, but it's hard to describe. The best way I can think to explain it would be that it smells like a "skincare product." A light, fresh scent that dissipates shortly after you use the product.
 One side has little massage beads to help gently exfoliate the skin, and the other side is a soft side that is used second to massage the essence into your skin.

Directions
1. After washing your face, insert 1-2 fingers into the pad and rub your face with the dotted side for seven seconds. 
  2. Using the other side of the pad, massage the essence into your face for seven seconds.

There is so much written on these jars that it was almost painful for me to strain my eyes enough to make out the ingredients. The beneficial ingredients included are:

- Noni: Morinda Citrifolia Fruit Extract
-Echinacea Extract
-Nasturtium Officinale Extract
-Galactomyces
-Jasmine Extract
-Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
-Nasturtium Officinale Extract
-Green Tea: Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
-Grape Extract
-Orange Extract

This ingredients list is known as "Neng Jang Go" (the first letter of each ingredient) and is included in all 3 of these products.
It's not listed in the main list of ingredients, however there is also snail mucin and a slew of other skincare goodies that I can't pronounce. I have painstakingly (omg my eyes are aching!) listed the gigantic ingredients lists at the end of this review for your reading pleasure!

What I Think
Guys. I'm obsessed with these. Ob-sessed. I cannot go a day without using one, which is awful because they are NOT cheap. We're talking almost $30 for a jar of 20 sheets. But they are good. So good. The only thing I use in the morning now is my foaming cleanser/clarisonic, one of these amazing God-like morning sheets, and sunscreen. I've been using these for over a month now and not only has my routine become faster and easier, but my skin looks and feels amazing when I use these! I can absolutely tell a difference when I try to hoard them and stop using them for a few days.

What I Notice
 -Moisturized Skin
-Firmer Skin
-Brighter, more even-toned Skin
-Makeup applies easier and more smoothly

I loved this product SO much, that I decided to review the other sheets in the line. The 7 Seconds Homme Sheet and the Platinum Rose Wine Ampoule Mask. Bonus reviews guys!

I shamelessly contacted Skinfactory and asked them if I could do a review on their other sheets after I raved endlessly about the Morning Sheets. Not only did they happily send me these ones to review, but they also sent me a bunch of other goodies from their line that I am SO excited to review and share with all of you over the coming months!

7 Seconds Homme 7 in 1 Sheet (Blue Label)
At first when I saw 7 Seconds Homme Sheet "Blue Label" I thought, "ooh what do these do?" I got my pen ready to write down the ingredients and difference and then I realized the scary truth:
They're exactly the same as the 7 Seconds Morning Sheets. *cue horror movie scream*

But in all seriousness, they're the same right down to the ingredients, directions, and benefits. The only difference? They're "for men" and have a blue label. 
Mmmkay. So they're still amazing, but now available with a blue label! Review over.

Platinum Rose Wine 7 in 1 Ampoule Mask
Finally, we have the Platinum Rose Wine Ampoule Mask. While these are packaged the same as the Morning Sheets, they are actually quite different. While they have the Neng Jang Go list of ingredients, these are actually your typical sheet masks! Rather than being in individual foil packets, these masks are folded neatly on top of each other, and you can remove one at a time by using the included pair of tweezers. While the morning sheets have 20 in each container, there are 11 Rose Wine Masks.
These sheet masks are whitening, anti-wrinkle, balance and moisturize the skin, and are for all skin types.

From Skinfactory
This product has a container custom-made for its fermented ingredients. Those ingredients are: wine extract, bacillus/soybean ferment extract, beta-glucan, rice ferment filtrate (sake), bifida ferment filtrate, and saccaromyces platinum ferment. These help strengthen and maintain your skins natural elasticity. 40 ingredients, including Ecocert Anthemis Nobilis flower water, apple fruit extract, grapeseed extract, saccharomyces/ platinum ferment, and patented ingredient COS-5 COMPLEX and SKINPIA-10 help to moisturize, tone, balance, exfoliate and calm your skin. 

Directions
At night, after washing your face, place the sheet mask on your face for 30 minutes. 
They also suggest storing these masks in the refrigerator and using them every other evening.

What I Think
 I've only been using these sheet masks for a few nights now, but they give the exact same feeling on my skin as the morning sheets do. My skin feels incredibly plump, yet firm, and moisturized. Oh-so-moisturized! It's hard to explain, but my skin looks and feels so soft and much brighter. I think I'll be enjoying these masks just as much as the morning sheets!

Overall Thoughts
Before trying the morning sheets, I had never tried anything from Skinfactory before. I love how excited and passionate they are about their products, and I love that they don't contain all those bad skin-harming ingredients. Most importantly though, I actually see a huge and impressive difference in my skin when I use these products. I have combination skin, so some products can make me breakout, or become super oily. These sheets only make my skin feel soft and moisturized. I haven't had any issues with breakouts, and my skin has truly never looked better.
Rarely do I go out of my way to do a review on a product that I got from a Memebox, even if I really like it. Mostly because I get SO many products that it would be nearly impossible to review everything. However, I was so impressed with the morning sheets, I just HAD to do this review and share it with you guys. They could charge $100 per container and I would somehow find a way to buy them whenever I could. I love them that much!

Where to Buy
Skin Factory directed me to the Wishtrend website, where you can purchase their products. You can buy all 3 of these products from the same link HERE.
They cost $28.90 per container. It seemed like a lot for me (I'm cheap, guys!) but I fully intend on purchasing these again when my stash runs out. They have a permanent place in my skincare routine for sure!

    1. LOL that's very interesting! I wonder if they picked those ingredients just so they could use that acronym for these products since they have to be refrigerated...that seems like an awful lot of effort but kind of awesome at the same time! haha ;)

    1. They are seriously worth EVERY penny. I hate spending money on products separately since I get so many Memeboxes, but I fully intend to buy more of these when I run out. $30 is a lot for 20 sheets, but if you use them every other day, or only on the days you're in a rush or want your skin to glow like crazy...they should last almost 2 months or so...which makes them totally worth it in my enabling mind! LOL

  7. Do you rinse afterwards? Or just let it dry on the face prior putting moisturizer?

    1. Hi Lauren!

      There is no need to rinse with these! They're sort of like an essence on a cotton pad. You just apply and let the product dry/absorb into the skin. :)

  8. They're only 15 bucks on Memebox, hopefully that saves you some extra cash! :)
