How do you feel about food having food on your face? One thing I've noticed with K-beauty brands is how popular food-based skincare is—there's an entire brand called Skinfood, for Pete's sake. This post isn't about Skinfood, but it is about another K-brand that's made with food meant to be put on your skin: The Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack, which contains actual egg extract!
Product description (from Memebox):
This wash off essence type pack is the perfect skin pick-me-up for anytime of the year. It forms a fine lather mousse that removes excessive sebum and impurities from your skin without that tight sensation. Whiten, brighten, nourish, and moisturize your skin with the protein and vitelline extracted from eggs to refine and create a radiant complexion.
Not gonna lie—when I first saw this I thought it was a cleansing foam. But oh how wrong I was! It's actually a wash-off pack with a foamy, mousse-like texture. Interesting.

To use the Egg Mousse Pack, give the can a good shake and depress the top until foam starts to come out. The packaging is exactly like hair mousse or shaving cream, so if you've used one of those before, you know what to do.
Plop! A big ol' dollop of foam, which smells slightly fruity and not at all like eggs. Curiously, the instructions on the Memebox website vary a bit from what's on the box—I'll give you both and let you decide what works best for you.
Memebox: Apply a ping-pong ball size to your face evenly while avoiding the eye & mouth area. Gently massage in a circular motion for 1 minute. Leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes until the mousse is absorbed into your skin. Wash your face with lukewarm water.
The box: Shake vigorously before use and pump an appropriate amount on your dry hand and apply it to the dry face. After gently massaging the face, rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use 2-3 times a week.

I tried it both ways and I think it's slightly more effective if you leave it on for a few minutes—but I find it hard to do a full 20 because it TICKLES! There are a bunch of micro bubbles in the foam—it's difficult to observe with the naked eye, but if you leave the mousse on your skin for a while they start to dissipate, leaving less volume in the foam and a slight ticklish sensation.
As for effects: My skin definitely feels smoother after using the Egg Mousse Pack, and I think it brightens a little bit too. As for moisturizing... no, not really. The good news is that it doesn't leave skin leaving oily or filmy, but if you need a mask that leaves skin super hydrated, this just isn't it.
Bottom Line: Too Cool For School's Egg Mousse Pack is tons of fun to use—walking around with a beard made of foam amuses me, and the subtle tingling is kind of appealing. I'll admit that I prefer wash-off packs that are slightly more moisturizing, but if you want something that will make your skin feel smoother and temporarily look brighter, it's a novel choice. I can see myself using it again in the future as a special event pre-game skincare booster—smooth skin makes for nicer makeup application.
