Korean Skincare: Purple Tale

Korean Skincare: Purple Tale

Hii everyone!

If you ask me what kind of beauty product I prefer, I’d have to say that I prefer skin care products. Your skin is the first step to achieving a flawless canvas for your makeup. If you skip that first step, you won’t get the amazing results and end up with dry or bumpy skin. I was very thrilled when Purple Tale, a Korean skin care brand, approached me with the question if I wanted to test a few of their products! I found it difficult to pick the items I wanted because they offer so many beautiful products. They sent me three items, which I thought was very kind of them. Thank you so much Purple Tale! Let’s see what the items are like.

Purple Tale believes that when you look good, you feel good! And when you feel good, you can’t help but share that with the world around you! I agree with them. To feel confident and good in your own body, you have to start with the base: your skin. Purple Tale only uses wholesome enriching, nourishing ingredients which help you look beautiful inside out.



Pot Twist Restorative Cream is an anti-aging cream which helps restoring the skin at night. This cream will work all of its magic while you’re asleep.

When I first saw the packaging I was flabbergasted by how pretty it was! The jar is made of glass which makes it feel more luxurious and more fun to use. A spatula was also included, which I think all skin care brands should do! It is more hygienic to use a spatula to scoop the product out of the jar instead of your finger. I find it cute that all of Purple Tale’s products are purple-themed. I’m really loving the jar, which looks fabulous on my vanity!

A fresh minty/sea kind of scent escaped from the jar when I opened the cap. It is a really pleasant smell, something that will trigger you to apply more layers on your face! The texture of this cream reminds me of The Body Shop Sleeping Mask. It has a jelly consistency. When you scoop the product out of the jar, the shape of the jelly in the jar will remain the same, as if it’s new!

Usually, anti-aging creams are really thick, so it takes time to let them sink into the skin, but the Restorative Cream is an exception! Because of the jelly consistency the product only needs a short amount of time to sink into the skin. Your skin will instantly feel softer without it feeling sticky. The cream just glides over your skin and suddenly disappears!



Setting the Scene Treatment Essence is a great product that suits all skin types! The essence is infused with ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine and niacinamide which creates a brighter, hydrated, glowy face! It even smooths out the fine lines on your face.

The packaging in which the bottle is stored is so cute! I love the multi-colored triangles on the box. The bottle is made of glass like the cream jar. What I also love about this Korean brand is the fact that there’s an English instruction on the packaging! How great is that? No more struggling and guessing at how to use the product.

You only need a few drops to make the essence do its job. Just dab it on your face and neck. It will be absorbed within seconds. The scent is really pleasant like the Restorative Cream’s. It’s a soft, flowery one, which makes using this product even more fun. The consistency is water-like, but the essence is much more magical than that!

Although I have an oily skin, the essence does a great job. It doesn’t clog my pores. It doesn’t make my skin more oily either. If you use this essence on a daily basis, you will achieve the best results. I noticed that my skin became more hydrated and perfectly primed for moisturizer or serum. I usually end up with a sticky or thick layer of products when I pair my essence with a moisturizer or serum. By contrast, I feel like the Treatment Essence absorbs instantly into the skin without leaving a weird layer of product. That’s what an essence should do!


5 Step to Lovely Skin helps firming and lifting your face. Your skin will look beautiful, hydrated and radiant! This handy five-step skin care routine is wonderful for when you’re on the go and don’t want to bring your skin care jars or bottles (or you can bring just eight kilograms hand luggage with one litre of liquid … ).

This amazing skin care routine has a packaging which is convenient for one- time use. It contains a foam cleanser, an ampoule, a bio cellulous sheet mask, moisturizer and a neck cream. I think this is also a great item for when you want to get an impression of Purple Tale as a skin care brand.


You have to take every step to get the right results. Step 1: apply the foam cleanser on your face and neck and massage it into the skin with a bit of water to make it foam. Step 2 is the ampoule: take a small amount on your hand and dab it onto the skin, let it sink in. Step 3 is the sheet mask: remove the two protective layers and apply the sheet mask on your face for 20 minutes. Step 4 is the face moisturizer: apply a generous amount on your face and massage into skin. The last step is the neck cream: apply it on your neck in an upward motion.

The foam cleanser felt a bit dry to be honest, even on my super oily skin. It was not so dry that my skin got patchy, but I am used to a more hydrated/richer cleanser. The ampoule felt really great. I never used an ampoule before, so this was a pleasant first-time experience for me. My skin became nourished and smooth after using it. I took the bio cellulous sheet mask next and placed it on my face for 20 minutes. I didn’t have the feeling that the sheet mask added something to my skin but it felt great. After the sheet mask I used the moisturizer on my face and applied the neck cream in an upward motion. Both the moisturizer and the neck cream felt amazing. They didn’t feel sticky and my skin absorbed the product in a short amount of time.


Overall, I am really thrilled about all of these products! I was excited to try them because I love Korean skin care and pampering my skin is what I like to do. My favorite item is the Treatment Essence. It felt great on my skin and it is by far the best essence I have ever tried! The Restorative Cream will be my night cream from now on! I love applying this cream before going to bed because it is an anti-aging cream which doesn’t make my skin feel sticky. The 5 Steps to Lovely Skin will by my skin care replacement when I will visit Rome on the 28th of July, since it’s easy to pack in my hand luggage.

I’d recommend the Treatment Essence to everyone! It’s suitable for all skin types. It even hydrates and smoothens my oily skin without making it more oily. So people with dry/combination skin will love the nourishing, hydrating effect of this essence. The Restorative Cream will be perfect for starting your anti-aging skin care routine or bringing back your perfect skin. It’s a great night cream that doesn’t make your skin feel sticky. The 5 Steps to Lovely Skin matches every skin type. I think that the foam cleanser will make your skin feel really dry when you have a dry/combination skin type, because it made my super oily skin pull. I was also left with a super dry feeling on my skin. But overall all the products worked really well for me! I want to thank Purple Tale for trying out their products <3
