Gone are the days when getting a luxe facial treatment required actually making an appointment with an aesthetician at your local spa (and lots and lots of extra income). With the advancement of at-home skin-care treatments and the popularity of K-beauty trends, you can get the benefits of a facial at home for a fraction of the price.
One of the most popular face masks is the South Korean at-home facial Hanacure, which has also been trending on Instagram and was even endorsed by Drew Barrymore in a stunning Instagram post. The self-described “all-in-one facial,” is painted on the face and then dries tightly against the skin. It’s supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and even out the complexion, lift and tighten sagging skin, and brighten.
“When you take it off you are 10 years younger,” Drew wrote of the facial treatment. She says it “changed her life.”
#beautyjunkieweek this is a @hanacureeffect mask @thehanacure nuts when you take it off you are 10 years younger. You paint it on with a brush. It starts to dry. It pulls. It gets so tight that it literally pulls your face. See above. But, It makes you look so fresh when you wash it off. And it's so effective. How fun is that in a package. #notttooenvasivebeauty #kbeauty thank you @crystalmeers for the info that's changed my life
Each treatment mask comes with a Lifting Serum and Gelling Solution that are to be mixed together for a single-use application for the face. As the mask dries, you’ll start to feel it tighten and it’ll look super wrinkly on your face (like how it looks in Drew’s Instagram). Allow the mask to completely dry on the skin for 20 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, simply rinse off with warm water. You should notice results almost immediately—most reviewers on Hanacure’s website report that the results are instantaneous, and get better with every use.
So what’s going on here? We spoke with Purvisha Patel, dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare, to get her expert opinion on Hanacure.
“It has a combination of peptides and botanicals that could produce results,” she says.
But since the formula is washed off after just 30 minutes, Patel says the improved appearance evident in many Hanacure before-and-afters might have to do more with moisturisation than anything else.
If you want to try Hanacure yourself, you can purchase a starter with one single-use application for $36 AUD, or a set of four for $140 AUD at hanacure.com. “It seems that this $36 mask would have to be used on a daily basis to maintain results, and that could get a little pricey!” says Patel. But there’s certainly no harm in it, and for people with super-parched skin, the moisturising benefits alone may be worth it.

??DURING and ??AFTER ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Welp here is my during and after of the Hanacure All-In-One facial…a.k.a. the Granny Mask. So application was simple and it took a long time to dry but the results are amazing. The wrinkles across my forehead, laugh lines and crows feet are diminished! I was like WHOOOAAA! I immediately followed up with my Sei Bella nighttime cream because my skin was dry. I have agree with the masses, this facial works great with my daily Sei Bella skin care routine. If you do this mask, do it in conjunction with a healthy skin care system fam. Maintenance is everything!!!! It was kinda weird seeing wrinkles gone that you notice every day. The video is on my page under this post. @hanacureeffect @hanacure #Hanacure #hanacuremask #hanacureeffect #grannymask #grandmamask #facial #SeiBella
