This is (for now) the last in my series of Koelf masks so, first off, I want to thank RoseRoseShop for sending all of these over for me to test. Previous to this, I’ve never actually used anything from Koelf before. Their products definitely have their pro and cons, but it’s great to see them for myself!
Recently, I’ve tested heel patches (on my mother), elbow patches (on myself) and cleaners and creams from their sister brand Petitfee. To finish us off, I’m going to go back to the Koelf brand with their pink nail treatment pack. I expect this to be very similar to the previous hydrogel packs, though I don’t think I’ve used anything similar for my nails before.
Before using this, I thought that my nails were in a pretty good condition but – let me tell you – you have no idea how dry they are until after they are hydrated! Lets give this a shot. On with the review!
Similar to the heel and elbow patches, these come in a packaging similar to the usual sheet masks. However, these retail in single packs inside of multiple, bringing the price to around USD$3.60 a pack. Each pack contains two patches – so one application for your nails and one for toenails. Personally, I feel that this is a bit expensive for a Koelf patch so would be costly to use regularly. However, this is a treatment pack so it isn’t too bad if you save it for occasions when it’s necessary – after having gel or acrylic nails removed, maybe (because chances are that your nails will be crying).
Looking at the back of the package – this is an intensive nutrition pack for healthy, shiny nails and toenails. It contains calcium, keratin, collagen and plant extracts to supply nutrients and protect the cuticles. It is suitable for damaged nails from frequent colouring.
As you can see in the photo above, the patches come in strips. The pre-cut (perforated?) plastic cover makes it really easy to pull off and attach, so you won’t have any trouble doing this one handed like I did. The material and hydrogel is pretty much as the same the other patches, so you can have a look at my other reviews to see more photos too.
Unlike the heel patches, these were a good size and the hydrogel was usually able to cover my entire nail – and I have pretty long nail beds. I wish that the patches were just a little longer so I could wrap them like a bandaid, but it still works fine. The patch stuck on well and, while I was waiting for it, I was able to continue doing my work. It’s definitely easy and convenient so, in the future, I might look at applying these overnight instead – for now, I only applied them for an hour and a half.
I forgot to take a photo of my nails before, so here’s a shot of it with only one applies. My nails aren’t in the worst condition, but my cuticles are a bit dry. Also, you can see some what scratches from where I have removed my gel nails – I’ve been redoing my gel nails every week or two, so my nails are crying a bit.
Below is a short of them all on and then the after photos too. I’m not sure if it’s that visible in the photos but I was actually rather amazed at how healthy my nails looked afterwards! It smoothed over the scratches in my nails and hydrated them well (as well as providing nutrients, I’m told), which has a similar effect to when you apply cuticle care over them I think. I’m not very good at nail care, so I don’t do that very often.
So that’s the review, guys! Overall, I think that this pack really does work and I would be interested in using it again when my nails are inevitably re-damaged. The price is a bit of a down point, but it isn’t excessive. For those who don’t like packs, I feel like moisturiser and a good quality cuticle care cream might do the same thing, but this is definitely easy for people who are lazy, on-the-go and generally absent minded like me.
Here’s the verdict!
SO WHAT IS IT?
A hydrogel, intensive treatment pack for your nails
- Good size
- Adheres well
- Easy to apply
- High in nutrients (with good ingredients)
- Can be applied overnight
- Leaves nails in a great condition
- Other products can have a similar or same effect
- A bit expensive
WOULD I REPURCHASE?
I would definitely consider it. The only thing holding me back is the price per application, but I might repurchase these when my nails are needing treatment again. However, I think I will try other, more cost effective, longer term options first. Overall, I would recommend that people give these a test though!
