Discovering Kicho Part 2: Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack Set



Following on yesterday's review, part 2 is all about Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack Set. If you have not read part 1 on Kicho's Sheep Oil Cream yet, you can refer to my previous blog post here.


First of all, wow the packaging! What a great way to lure people into buying the whole set with a brush instead of a sleeping pack alone. But with all seriousness, this is the most beautiful packaging I've ever received a product in! (I think the second place would probably go to this Isiloe Set, which doesn't even seem that fancy now. Then again, new things always seem fancier!)

Description: Camelia Sleeping Pack is an overnight sleeping mask that moisturizes, soothes and protects skin from toxic substances. Applying it with a brush enables deeper penetration of pores, producing more effective results.

Size: 100ml/3,38oz

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Lanolin Oil, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Dimethicone, Petrolatum, Caprylic, Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sodium Hyaluronate, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil (1000mg), Dimethicone, Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sorbitan Stearate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Zea Mays (Corn) Kernel Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate, VP Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl Acrylate, Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Acrylates, C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Totarol, Decylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Parfum, Disodium EDTA, Magnolia Kobus Bark Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Propolis Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower/Leaf Extract, Thujopsis Dolabrata Branch Extract, BHT, CI 19140, CI 15985, CI 16185, CI 42090. (View on CosDNA.)

4 major ingredients they highlight on the packaging are: camellia oil, black ginseng root extract, lanolin & rose water. Camellia oil soothes and protects tired and sensitive skin, while black ginseng, rose water and lanolin provide the nutrients and moisture needed to reveal smooth, healthy and vibrant skin the next morning.


For a sleeping pack, this one is rather lightweight, but I find that once applied it keeps my skin well moisturized till morning. It doesn't feel sticky and there's no residue left when I wake up, but my skin feels very soft & nourished.

When compared to Kicho's Sheep Oil Cream the texture of this sleeping pack actually seems a bit less heavy, but I think they make up for it with all the extra ingredients.

It has a strong floral scent of which I can only assume is camellia. I mean, that would make sense, right? It's just a wild guess, though, because I'm not too sure what the scent of camellia is supposed to be like. However, if I were to compare it to Kicho's Sheep Oil Cream, I'd say that I prefer the refreshing herbal scent of that cream to this sleeping pack. But that's just my opinion & there's nothing particularly wrong with the floral scent! It's not too overwhelming, so I guess it's just a matter of prefering fresh over floral.


Lastly, I really like the brush that came with this sleeping pack - it has very high quality & feels so good on skin. Kicho also makes makeup brushes, btw, so this could explain why this one is so well done. It looks very nice, definitely a lot better than the cheap $1 face mask brush I got from Ebay to satisfy my DIY-masking needs.

I like how it allows me to apply the sleeping pack without getting any product on my hands. This also means I have to clean the brush after every application, but I suck it up, because I love how it feels on skin. The best part is that even if I run out of the sleeping pack, I can continue using the brush!

Of course, I realize that it's not necessary to apply the sleeping pack with a mask brush, but in my opinion it just adds a little extra to the whole experience and I also feel like owning this pretty mask brush could inspire me to start doing more DIY face masks in the future.

Overall, my experience with Kicho has been very good and I definitely think it's a brand to keep an eye on!

Where to buy?

Unfortunately, this sleeping pack isn't available on Ebay, which I think is the easiest and most affordable place to shop at. There are a few US retailers selling it, though! Peach & Lily and Ohlolly, for example. However, shipping outside US might be a bit expensive & Ohlolly only ships to selected countries.

    1. It really is! I wish there were more resellers stocking Kicho, so us in Europe could enjoy some of this goodness as well (without paying $40 for shipping).

  3. Ever since your first Kicho review yesterday, I've been waiting (im)patiently for your review of this sleep pack! I guess it was worth the wait because you really seemed to have liked it!

    I rather liked the ingredients in this one ever since I found out about it, especially the Camellia oil and the ginseng - two of my favorite AB ingredients. My first oil cleanser was from Tatcha and it has Camellia oil in it. It was a truly wonderful way to be introduced to the pleasures (and effectiveness!) of oil cleansing. I've also got quite a few products from Sulwhasoo and TheFaceShop that contain ginseng, and this ingredient works really well to maintain smooth, luminous (and ageless!) skin. So, this sleep pack certainly has the goods!

    I'm glad to hear it's not too heavy as this was one of my concerns in using it now that warmer weather seems to be upon us.

    You seem to really like that brush but I'm still undecided about it. Having developed a few faint "age spots" on my hands some months ago, I've taken to applying my entire routine on the backs of my hands with what's left over from my face. Fortunately, the age spots are now very much diminished and will, hopefully, be banished - for good - soon.

    That said, the packaging on this set is gorgeous, something that is obvious, even to me as a lowly male. My daughter is a recent convert to AB (Laneige mainly) so maybe I'll get this set for her as she has a birthday (#34) coming up soon. Yes, even my children are all much older than you are (and explains why I have to worry about "age spots" and you don't!)

    1. I'm not too familiar with camellia oil yet, but it does seem to be included in many products and from now on I'll know to look for it in skin care.

      The brush is definitely a splurge, but I like it, so I think the set would be a wonerderful gift! :)

      It's good to hear that AB has worked so well for your age spots, tho! :D

    2. Just FYI, but Tosowoong has a very nice 100% Camellia Oil ampoule so maybe you should look into it - and perhaps review!

    3. Thank you for the suggestion! I did look into it and it definitely seems like a good one! However, since it's just 100% Camellia oil, I think there's probably a non-AB-brand organic Camellia oil sold for less out there?

  4. OMG I love the packaging ♥ esp the brush. I've always wondered how a sleeping mask will perform and if it's a must to sleep still and not move around so the product doesn't smear everywhere hahah until I try one of those korean sleeping mask samples that realized it's just like a moisturizer, except that you have to wash off in the morning hehe. Love your pictures btw x

    1. I guess it depends a bit on the sleeping mask, I've had one that was more heavy, but this one is definitely quite light and more like a face cream! And thank you! :)

  6. Oh my gosh! That brush is so cute and the packaging! Eeee! Though I already have enough sleeping masks, I'm definitely going to add this to my wishlist and checkout their brushes :)

    1. I think it's quite different from other sleeping masks I've tried, so I'm sure it would be a great addition to your collection! :)

  7. I never saw such a pretty packaging either! It just looks fantastic, dreamlike, straight out of a fairy tale! I would have totally bought it, haha.

    KICHO is a very nice brand. I love how they always came up with inventive formulas and concepts (and their eye cream is fabulous!). Now that I'm jumping on the train with a few months late, did you continue using this mask, Lona? What did you notice on long-term use?

    1. Yeah, I was soo impressed with the packaging! :) I don't think I've read about their eye cream yet, but I'll trust your opinion haha!

      To be honest, I haven't been using skin care at all for the past 2 weeks. I got so frustrated with my skin and it actually seems to be better now lol. Maybe it was a bit too heavy for me, but it does moisturize skin very well! So I think it really depends on your skin type and maybe the season haha.
