I got the Red Pearl Barley Whitening Gel mask in a travel set with the toner and the serum and out of the three products the mask was my favourite. It comes in a little 20ml plastic jar and although it seems small there is actually a lot of product inside it and you can use it for more than two or three times. It has a faint sweet and floral scent that goes away quickly it has a nice cooling gel texture. Compared to other gel masks that I've used I liked the fact that the gel didn't became watery when I applied it on my face, it had the same texture as it was in the jar and it was really easy to apply it on my face. I tried to use it as a sleeping mask, but I found it a little bit too drying as a sleeping mask. However as a wash off mask it was perfect: it felt really cooling and soothing on my skin (especially if I stored it in the fridge before using it) and my skin looked more bright and even after I washed it off. I really enjoyed using this mask and I'm curious to see if the other 23.5 N gel masks are similar to this one or if they provide different results.

I got the Red Pearl Barley Whitening Serum in a  travel set with the toner and gel mask and out of all the three products this was my least favourite. I liked that it has a similar texture to the toner, it's a really watery gel that absorbs quickly, just like the toner, but it feels a little bit more moisturising than the toner. When I used it together with the toner it left my skin moisturised and really soft, however when I used it alone I couldn't notice any evening of the tone of my skin and it didn't do much for my acne scars. The serum is the smallest one out of the three items (only 5 ml) so maybe I need to use it for a longer period of time to notice better results. However I liked using it with the toner and the mask and the three of them together are a great option for traveling and they're great for people with combiation/oily skin as they absorb quickly and they don't feel heavy on the skin.

I got the Red Pearl Barley Whitening toner in a travel set with the serum and gel mask and I have to say that the toner was my second favourite product out of the set, after the gel mask. It has a watery and runny texture and although I'm not a big fan of toner I did enjoyed this one a lot. I like the fact that it's watery and it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a sticky film behind and although it absorbs quickly it feels very moisturising for my combination/oily skin. It doesn't have a scent and for someone that doesn't really like scented skincare products that was a huge bonus. And it left my skin feeling moisturised, refreshed and it also helped calming and soothing my skin. As for "whitening" I can't say that it did much in evening my skin tone when I used it alone but when I used it together with the serum and the mask I noticed that my skin tone was indeed more even and my acne scars a little bit dimished. And because the products come in smaller sizes this is an amazing set for traveling!
