I’ve started my new job and I’m predicting work to get busier with the peak during the end of the year. With so much to do, I’m bound to overlook taking care of myself and slack off on my skincare routine. Recently, I came across this skincare brand from and made in Taiwan, EFFEC Skincare. They started business and have been around in Singapore since 2017.
“Skincare is an attitude, but also a kind of life to enjoy.”
EFFEC Skincare’s philosophy is to provide women with a simple, natural, efficient and anti-aging skincare routine. Its skincare products are designed with a gentle formula, low stimulation, provide perfect circulation of skin recovery and maintenance that is most suitable for women living in places with tropical climate, like that of Singapore. They place emphasis on anti-aging needs for the modern Asian women by laying the best skincare foundation to counter aging.
They have kindly sent across four of the EFFEC Skincare products for me to review. Scroll down to read more about them and make sure you read everything, because I have two good things to share right at the end.
EFFEC HYDROLYZED SILK PROTEIN FACIAL CLEANSER
Deep Cleansing | Efficient Moisturizing | Calm & Soothe | Repair & Brightening
A facial cleanser is one product that we use at least twice a day in our skincare routine. It is important to find one that is suitable for your skin and fit for daily use. The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser (one of the products in the Lamellar skincare series under EFFEC) is a gentle skin cleanser, containing 18 different types of amino acid with a mild acidity close to skin’s pH level and silk protein capable of absorbing water molecules up to 50 times of its weight, giving you a fully moisturized and refreshing skin. It is suitable for all skin types, acne-prone skin, skin with clogged or thick pores, excessively oily skin, especially suitable for sensitive skin and post-surgery skin for its restoration effect.
The Lamellar skincare series is a line of products created for professional treatment and care, its major compositions are abstracted from plant essentials and developed by biochemical technology and utilizes the richest nutriments from nature to take care of your skin and prevents them from the occurrence of deterioration.
The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser is a transparent liquid with a scent that is hard for me to describe. One pump of the EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser is enough for each use and can create a substantial amount of fine bubble foam to wash your face after mixing and rubbing it with water.
My skin feels really clean and refresh after using the EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser to wash my face. It is really a mild facial cleanser. Most importantly, it is not astringent, my skin doesn’t feel too dry or tight which means the pH level is just right for my skin, I feel my skin is moisturized, supple and more elastic.
One more thing to point out, though I’m not going through a facial surgery to know that the EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser is good for post-surgery use but my skin is always red and a little inflamed after my monthly facials, so I tried using it a few times after my facial last month. I feel it works well in calming and soothing my skin and I think it also helped a little in the repairing and healing.
The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Protein Facial Cleanser (200ml) retails at $29.
Facial masks are quick and easy-to-use products you can add to your skincare routine in your daily busy schedule. Different facial masks have different functionalities and purposes, but they all provide a boost to your skin in the area of need. Find one that is suitable for your skincare need from the following three popular EFFEC Skincare facial masks.
1) EFFEC HYDROLYZED SILK FACIAL MASK
UV Protection | Brightening Spot | Whitening
After cleansing, I find that UV protection is also a very important thing in your skincare routine. For me, it is a must to have some form of sun protection for the skin. The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Facial Mask is suitable for all skin types, for excessively oily skin, especially for acne-prone or sensitive skin and people who have dark spots and thick pores.
The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Facial Mask contains Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, a variety of plant extracts and moisture-preserving factor, repairing dull skin, keeping lustre and moisture. It helps defend skin against UV stress by limiting cellular photo-aging, prevents the reduction of melanin to help lighten dark skin, freckles and get rid of spots. It also provides skin whitening, smoothening and has nourishing effects while delaying skin-aging giving you elasticity and satin-felt skin.
Because of its restoration effect, the EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Facial Mask is also suitable for post-surgery skin. Silk Protein maintenance first started in Korea. After a face operation, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein products are used to recover and repair the wound. Many doctors would recommend using Hydrolyzed Silk Protein for enhanced post-surgery care. The molecular weight of Silk Protein is only two-hundredth of collagen, which can easily penetrate into the skin immediately and quickly absorbed by the cells.

After applying the EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Facial Mask on a cleansed face for 20 to 30 minutes, it has to be rinsed off thoroughly with fresh water and pat dry. The mask has a slight unique scent of Silk Protein and it is soaked with a transparent liquid. I like to use this before I put on my makeup in the morning, so that I get extra UV protection for the day when I go out. I feel that it does moisturize and brighten up the skin after use but it has this very slight sticky component and I’m guessing perhaps it’s like the sticky texture of some sunscreens but in a very very light way.
The EFFEC Hydrolyzed Silk Facial Mask retails at $5 per piece.
2) EFFEC POLYPEPTIDE FACIAL MASK
Anti-Aging | Firming | Moisturizing
For a woman’s skin, moisturizing is a need for all stages of your life. As you get older, you also need to look into anti-aging and firming. The EFFEC Polypeptide Facial Mask is suitable for all skin types and good for people who have dry or rough skin, sagging skin, skin lacking elasticity, skin with age lines and wrinkles.
The EFFEC Polypeptide Facial Mask with Nano type molecular allows easier absorption into the skin, it can visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a refined contour, keeping face constantly smooth, brightens and moisturized with water supply and locks moisture in the skin, giving you a youthful-looking complexion. The skin restoration elements in the EFFEC Polypeptide Facial Mask can also effectively lift and tighten skin for a more defined and contoured face.
The Polypeptide structure is composed by over 10 units of amino acid element. Its molecules are larger than amino acid, and the protein synthesis in the cell is more than amino acid. If the skin loses Polypeptide, it will reduce the number of proteins, the cells will shrink and wrinkles will gradually appear. The absorption rate of Polypeptide is more effective than amino acid, which can prevent aging, tighten your skin, and achieve the effect of tightening.

The EFFEC Polypeptide Facial Mask also requires rinse-off thoroughly with fresh water and pat dry after applying it on a cleansed face for 20 to 30 minutes. The mask has a slight floral scent and is soaked with a water-based transparent gel. I use this before I go to bed at night and let it do its thing of moisturizing and firming. I feel that my skin is moisturized and smoothened after use and it is pretty effective in lifting and tightening the skin.
The EFFEC Polypeptide Facial Mask retails at $6 per piece.
3) EFFEC PREZATIDE COPPER ACETATE FACIAL MASK
Anti-Wrinkle | Smoothening | Heal & Repair
The EFFEC Prezatide Copper Acetate Facial Mask is suitable for all skin types, especially for acne-prone, sensitive or inflammatory skin, rough skin and skin with age lines and wrinkles.
The addition of Prezatide Copper Acetate that originally exists in our body along with collagen in the EFFEC Prezatide Copper Acetate Facial Mask keeps skin elastic, smooth and delays signs of aging while restoring the ability of the skin to heal and repair dull skin and increase oxygen supply to the skin. Hyaluronic acid and multiple types of ingredients help your skin counter dehydration, retain moisture, keeping skin fresh, constantly smooth, soft, supple and moisturized. By promoting and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, it helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles and firms the skin.

The EFFEC Prezatide Copper Acetate Facial Mask is also another EFFEC Skincare facial mask that requires rinse-off thoroughly with fresh water and pat dry after applying it on a cleansed face for 20 to 30 minutes. The mask is odourless and is soaked with a transparent water-based essence, somewhere between a gel and liquid. I would use this before I go to bed because from my experience, your skin heals and repairs at night. I also tried to use this after my monthly facial because my skin tends to be inflamed and red every time after facial and it does a good job in improving inflammation and reducing redness.
The EFFEC Prezatide Copper Acetate Facial Mask retails at $6 per piece.
TENCEL INVISIBLE MASK
I am using the EFFEC Prezatide Copper Acetate Facial Mask here.
Unlike the general cotton mask, EFFEC Skincare facial masks are Tencel Invisible Masks. They are natural, light, soft, thin (almost invisible) and breathable. I feel it takes a little effort to apply EFFEC Skincare facial masks on the face because they are thin and they keep sticking together. But once it is on the face and after you smoothen out the air bubbles, it sticks and fits comfortably on the face like a glove. With high capacity essence in every pack, the full essence gets easily absorbed making skin moisturized.
