Super Awesome AB Package Goodness!!!

Hey dolls! Long time no AB post, right?!?? 😛

The magnificently gorgeous Vanna over at Leaves of Yves sent me a super awesome box stuffed full of AB goodies, and I just had to show off share with you guys!! 😀 If you are into Asian beauty, subscription boxes and makeup, you’ll love her blog. She’s funny, thoughtful, and very thorough in her reviews! ❤

She sent me a bunch of full sized products, loads of samples, sheet masks, a heart shaped konjac sponge, pumice stones, some lip products, blotting papers, mask packs, a cute little stuffed snail. and a shit load of decants from her personal stash…not to mention a sweet handwritten note telling me what all the decants were. She’s the best, y’all T_T

Wow, where do I start??? Let’s see another group photo, shall we? 😀 Continue reading

TonyMoly Hello Sheep Mask Sheet

Hey dolls! This is the mask from the first day of the  Soko Glam challenge! Finally! Yayyy XD

This is a mask from my bae, TonyMoly. I got it on eBay for $3.98 (!!) with free shipping. Kinda pricey for ONE mask, I know… but–but—it was a cute sheep! Can you blame me?? XD I bought this mask months ago and never used it… it was next up in my queue, so here it is!

sheep kawaii

This was too fucking cute not to use!

Here’s my entry for Day 3 of the challenge! I made it three days in a row—go me! XD

This mask is one of my favorites, the TonyMoly ‘I’m Real’ red wine mask! This is the first TM mask I ever used/reviewed and it’s still my favorite one from them so far! ❤

I really do ❤

SO where the fuck is yesterday’s review?!? I know, I know,,, I am halfway done with the review of yesterday’s mask,.,., it will go live tonight! Might be a little late… I’m currently in the middle of doing something I may or may not regret tomorrow  XD (you’ll see soon enough…).

#Soko7daychallenge Day 2: Not Baaad

Hey beauties! Here’s my maskie for the second day in the Soko Glam 7 Day Challenge! ❤

I couldn’t resist using Hello Kitty Year of the Sheep stickers… it was fitting (the mask being a limited edition for the Chinese astrological Year of the Sheep and all…); plus, Hello Kitty XD If you didn’t know, I looove HK. I have loads of stuff, and even a tattoo of her! 😛

Year of the Sheep = lanolin being used in the mask, in case you were wondering if there was a connection somehow XD

Remember, if you want to play along just use a sheet mask everyday for a week, take a maskie, and use the hashtag in the title on Twitter, Instagram, or FB.

Look for the review for this mask later XD

Soko Glam Seven Day Challenge Day 1

Since Chel over at the Holy Snails! blog challenged me to the Soko Glam 7 Day Challenge on Instagram, I figured I’d share the resulting selfies on here, because relevant, right??

SO how does it work? Simple. You use a sheet mask for 7 days straight, take a selfie maskie, and tag it with #soko7daychallenge on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Ta-da!

Seriously, it’s that easy…

This is what I do anyway (minus the flood of maskies anyway), so I figured it would be fun to play along with the other AB honies on IG 😛

The plan is this: for the next seven days (including today, duh), I will post my selfie from the challenge and that should (hopefully XD) be followed by a full review for the mask in another post (if it doesn’t exist already…I might use some of my faves I’ve reviewed already).

Stay tuned for the review in a couple of hours!

I challenge YOU to the SG challenge! Do eeet! I’m following the hashtag on IG 😛

MOTD: Hey! Pinkgo Girl Black Rose Collagen Intense Hydration Mask

Hey lovelies! Today’s mask is from Hey! Pinkgo Girl, a Taiwanese brand. They have the cutest packaging! I’m serious, go look at their other packages. Just fucking adorable 😛

I bought this in a box of 10 for about $13 on Amazon, from a seller authorized to sell this brand in the US. This was one of the first masks I bought after getting into sheet masks! 😀 This finally made its way back into my rotation…it was banished for months (more on that later) XD.

 According to the listing on Amazon:

Hey! Pinkgo Girl Black Rose Collagen Intense Hydration Sheet Mask brings together an array of anti-aging ingredients that offer firming, toning and lifting benefits while effectively meeting your skin’s need for hydration to visibly plump the complexion.

The SGS-approved thin mask features black rose extract to promote skin repair at the cellular level and address the underlying causes of premature signs of aging. Collagen firms and strengthens sagging weakened tissue, while hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin to hydrate and reduce the depth of fine lines.

Prevent sagging and fight numerous signs of aging with a single moisturizing sheet mask. With every use, you’ll get a boost in hydration and reveal a more youthful complexion.

Sounds totes amazing right?? Add to that my love of all things rose scented and I was all like

Give it to me baby! XD

This mask claims to feature rose extract, but take a look at the ingredients list:

Water, Tremella Fuciformis Extract, Xanthan Gum, Glycerin, Algin, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Caster Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Ethylhexylglycerin, PEG-8 Isostearate, Trehalose, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Rose Extract, Cucumber Extract.

Wait, what? Really!? Is there that little bit of rose in there?? O_o

*double snap*

As you may or may not know, ingredients are listed by volume from most to least on any given cosmetic or other ingredient list. In my experience with sheet masks and featured ingredients, they are usually in the top 10 (top 3-5 in a really great mask) ingredients. This one has rose next to last.… so let’s just call this mask rose scented.

The real featured ingredient of this mask is tremella fuciformis extract.

Tremella fuciformis (also known as snow fungus, silver ear fungus, and white jelly mushroom) extract reportedly increases moisture retention in the skin. It also contains an enzyme that acts as an antioxidant in the skin. It also has many other great benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects. Fascinating! I will concede (begrudgingly) that Snow Fungus Collagen Intense Hydration Mask does not sound sexy. Might as well throw some rose extract for the smell and call it that! Also, wtf is a black rose?? Is that a real thing?? XD

Alrighty, then. On to the review!

TL;DR:

Mask 411: Tissue paper thin, well soaked with a plastic backing. Smells like roses 😀
Mask fit: Oblong mask that clings to your face like whoa. Fits my whole face, nicely placed holes.
Did it work as advertised? I’d say so, kinda…
Overall rating? I don’t love this mask, but I don’t hate it either.

Mask details: This mask is soooo fucking thin…..it made the My Beauty Diary mask seem thick in comparison. It had a plastic backing, and it was dripping with essence!! Not only that, but there was so much essence left in the package, I literally poured it on my chest…. it was kinda funny, now that I think about it. It was way more liquid than I expected I guess XD

Mask Fit: I really like the fit of this mask. The holes were placed well. It was kinda oblong, but unlike MBD masks there were no annoying notches… but I inevitably ended up stretching it out at the mouth area T_T What I like the most about the mask is the way it clings:

It was like a second skin, with minimal air pockets. I love that. When I first used this mask, I tore the shit out of it and I was so frustrated, I stopped using them. Now that I know what I am dealing with, I see that its thinness is its greatest asset and its Achilles’ Heel. Fancy that.

First Impression:  This mask held up like a champ. It stayed wet through an entire episode and a half of True Detective (I was a bit behind…) before staring to dry at the edges. After taking it off, my face felt soft, smooth and plump. Although… once the essence soaked in, my face felt a little dry. Huh. I didn’t care for that much, as you can imagine. I finished my routine, and used a little more of my occlusive (Tony Moly Eco Snail Moisture Gel… loooove it) that usual.

Final thoughts: Well, my face looks and feels great today! There are some small bumps still lingering, but for the most part they’re gone now yayyy! My face didn’t feel overly hydrated as I would have expected (but based on the dry face I got after the mask, I am not surprised) but this seemed to help calm the irritation I have been having the past couple of days and (most importantly) didn’t break me out XD

Would I rebuy this? I have to say maybe. I’m pretty meh about it tbh.

Emma Stone’s shrug captures my feelings for this mask perfectly.

I still have a few of these left. I gave away like half of them (I think…). I’d probably buy another variety of this brand, but not this one per se. I wouldn’t mind getting it as a gift or something though! LOL I will use the rest of the ones I have in stash at any rate. It’ll be awhile before I use one again though.

Tonight I am totes treating myself to something really nice to offset this one’s mehness XD

Have you tried this mask? If so, what did you think? Is it worth checking out the other varieties from this brand? Let me know!

Until next time,

xoxox

MOTD: My Beauty Diary Imperial Bird’s Nest Mask

Hey dolls! Today’s mask is from My Beauty Diary. a Taiwanese company. They are a pretty popular mask company…they even sell them at Walmart!! (note to self: compare prices at Wally World vs Amazon XD).

I bought mine from Beauteque for $1.99. I actually got another one in my June Mask Maven pouch too *le sigh*. But you know what? MBD and TM dupes are allllllways welcome in my stash (they’re my two absolute fave mask companies) 😉

Anywho, according to Beauteque:

This mask provides the skin with nourishing and moisturizing nutrients. It moisturizes dry skin, feels soft and supple like a baby’s skin. The enhanced hydration meets the ultimate needs of the skin and nourishing. The combination of rare elements from the sky, the extraction of ‘Swiftlet’s nest’, and the extraction of deep-sea plant, ‘coralline’, with the reputation of ‘submarine bird’s nest’ gives the skin this superb gourmet feast. It deeply improves skin hydration, provides rich nourishment and energy, heals dry and expression fine lines, erases dullness and roughness, and makes skin translucent, tender and smooth.

*grabby hands* Give it to meeeeee

 I needed this… especially after Sunday’s shitty mask (I didn’t use a mask on Monday or Tuesday, I used a sleeping pack instead. I’ve been staying up late  and I was too tired to use a mask XD) My face really didn’t like that red ginseng mask, man… or it could just be the summer heat that have caused small colonies of little bumps on my cheeks and forehead T__T. I had high hopes for this mask. The last few MBD masks I’ve used have been awesome, so I was hoping this mask would deliver on (at least some…) of its promises. 

Now onto the featured ingredient: Bird’s Nest. 
Now, since getting into Asian Beauty I have put a lot of strange shit on my face (snail slime, namely…) but this one….. wow. This is essentially bird spit. And expensive as fuck, too. It is considered the caviar of the East, and for good reason. This can go for about $2,500 per kilogram in Asian countries O_O. I cannot seem to find any definitive studies about its efficacy in skin care, but man… many Asian people believe in it. They not only use it in skin products, they actually eat it.

Uhh, no thanks. But I will put it on my face ;P
This mask also features another ingredient, coralline. Coralline has many helpful properties, one of note is its anti-inflammatory properties, which can soothe the skin, reduce redness and increase cellular cohesion. Interesting!
Enough nature talk: On to the review!
TL;DR:
Mask 411: Thin, easy ripping, well soaked with a plastic backing. Smells nice 🙂
Mask fit: Oblong mask with weird slits all over. Fits my whole face though.
Did it work as advertised? YES
Overall rating? OMG I loved it!!! Totes amaze 😀

Mask details: Like most MBD masks I’ve tried, this mask had a light, floral scent. I must say I didn’t know what to expect it to smell like (bird spitttt XD)The mask is on the same level of thickness as a TM mask (very thin…), comes with a plastic backing, and it was dripping with essence! Although there was precious few drops left in the package, the plastic liner had lots of essence left on it so I did The Yoosh with it.
Mask Fit: I actually do not particularly care for the fit of MBD masks. They are kinda oblong, and with all the fucking notches on them, I inevitably ended up ripping it in at the chin T_T But it did cover my whole face, so there’s that.
First Impression:  Ohh man, this felt sooooo gooood on my face, especially after a long hot day. The mask stayed wet for over 45 minutes. I took it off finally so I can drink my beer properly XD  After taking it off, my face felt smooth and plump! It took a few minutes for the essence to soak in, then I finished my routine and went about my business.
Final thoughts: Well, my face feels fucking amazing today!!!!! ZOMG my bumps have started clearing up!!! In some places they are fucking GONE. My face still feels nicely hydrated and soooo soft. I cannot stop touching my face (and I prolly should XD). No kidding guys: this mask soothed my irritated skin and really helped hydrated it. These are important attributes for me, especially in the summer! Wooooo!
Would I repurchase this variety? Fuck yes. MBD masks are a great price (at usually ~$12-14 for a box of 10) and always deliver. I will never not have any MBD masks in my stash. They are a great brand through and through. I have another bird’s nest mask from MBD (they have three different kinds I think? LOL) so I will make sure to try that one next month. I also have one more of this Imperial BN mask too… methinks I am hoarding it for a day when I really need some Skin 911. 
Have you tried this MBD mask? What did you think about it? I’m curious to see if anyone else loved it as much as me 😛
Until next time.

July Beauteque Mask Maven Pouch Unboxing

Hey lovelies! Today I am fiiiinally getting around to my July Mask Maven unboxing (unpouching?)!! 😀

It arrived quickly after they shipped it (since they shipped from NJ, I got it in two days) and I am quite excited to show you what’s inside!

To those who may not know, Mask Maven is a subscription service from Beauteque that sends 9 – 11 masks each month. It’s $15 plus $3.95 shipping a month, You can get a recurring subscription, in addition to buying individual monthly pouches.  (Please note that since I exclusively review sheet masks on this blog, there will only be brief details on the masks received in the July pouch. More in depth reviews will follow in the weeks to come. So many masks, so little time…:P)

I got a three month subscription… this was the last month of my sub run. I was not overly thrilled with the June pouch tbh (I got three masks that I had already…boo). I didn’t get a chance to review last month’s pouch… mostly because I was away for most of June and didn’t get it until I came back in early July…but also because of laziness XD I will talk about it in another post, I promise! Anyway, this month I got a foot mask, an eye mask, and seven sheets masks.

Enough chatter! On to the good shit!

This month’s pouch is pink! 😀

The sub comes in a seemingly random colored organza bag every month. They seemed to have changed up their enclosed card for this and last month’s subs!

Sorry for the shitty photo XD

July’s Mask Maven Brings you closer to Asian culture. Opera masks are used in Chinese theatre to help determine the attributes of the theatrical character. Typically the Opera masks are painted on the actor’s faces and the SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Sheet Mask emulates just that (OMG yayyyy 😀 😀 😀 – Deena) The main color of the sheet mask is black which indicates that the character is neutral or impartial but has integrity. So slap on the SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Sheet Mask, but please don’t be impartial on sheet masks!

I thought that was fucking adorable! And yayyy for a character mask (my first ever! Why have I waited so long?? XD)

I like that they’re being more descriptive, both of the masks they include and the overall theme. I like most of all that this pouch seems curated, way more so than the May pouch I received from them. Good marks, Beauteque!

Yadda yadda, what’s inside the damn pouch right??

AngelLooka Ultra Moisturizing Foot Mask Pack

Mediheal Black Eye Anti-Wrinkle Mask

Esfolio Gold Mask – Gold Essence

Holika Holika Ceramide + Honey

Esfolio Milk Essence Mask Sheet

Aww, yeah! TonyMoly I’m Real Skin Purifying Mask

Urban Dollkiss Welcome to Korea Money Masks in Revitalize (green) and Skin Clear (pink). These are just too fun! 

And last, but certainly not least: SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Sheet Mask

Since Beauteque was so generous as to put a blurb about each product on the info card, let’s take a look-see, shall we?

  • AngelLooka Ultra Moisturizing Foot Mask Pack: this foot mask pack helps moisturize feet as it removes dead skin cells. FYI: this mask heats up upon application. //Heh, I will put this to the task! 
  • Mediheal Black Eye Anti-Wrinkle Mask: This anti-wrinkle eye care mask revitalizes skin elasticity under the eyes with effective components such as phyto black complex, marine collagen, and silk peptide. //Sounds awesome! I’ll save this for when I’ve had a real bender the night before XD
  • Esfolio Gold Mask – Gold Essence: Containing colloidal gold, this sheet mask is great for alleviating stressed skin by adding elasticity and nutrition. //Damn, that’s fahncy! XD
  • Holika Holika: A well loved brand, Holika Holika aims to enhance natural beauty… //blah blah blah, they sent shit randomly. I got the Ceramide + Honey variety. I recently tried another from the ceramide line and I really liked it. 
  • Esfolio Milk Essence Mask Sheet: Milk protein is effective in keeping the skin clean and help to increase skin elasticity and moisture. //Got milk, baby? XD I got nothing for this one. Looks interesting?
  • TonyMoly I’m Real Skin Purifying Mask: Loved by Asian Beauty experts and newbies alike! The cute packaging attracts the novice, but the amazing effects of the mask keep the seasoned beauty lover coming back for more. //blah blah, they sent them randomly. I got the Skin Purifying one. Major props for some TM love!!! I loves me some TM masks! Although, wait a minute…I think I have this already….
  • Urban Dollkiss Welcome to Korea Money Masks: Unique to Beauteque! These masks are formulated to either lift, revitalize, clean, moisturize, or repair skin. //They sent two of these randomly. I got Revitalize and Skin Clear. I just love the packaging! I also love the company (formerly Baviphat). Their First Essence is amazing, and their lemon brightening sleep pack is lovely too :3
  •  SNP Beijing Opera Brightening Sheet Mask: The active ingredient of coconut water immediately replenishes moisture yo dry skin and improves skin function. ///Ahh coconut water!! It’s the third ingredient, which is followed by niacinamide!!! I am gonna try this one in the next few days, y’all O_O

Oh, so I did get another duplicate in this pouch?! *le sigh*  Well. At least this time I didn’t buy my dupe from Beauteque XD I have a lot of masks… almost 250 by my last count. I actually have a spreadsheet for my masks, which I will share (along with a blank one for you guys!) in a future post.

So this was the last of my three month sub. Will I renew?? I unfortunately will not be renewing my sub with them right now. I have more than enough masks for the rest of the year…. and beyond, even using them once a day XD You know it’s bad when you’re getting shit you already have from subs!! I also have many, many masks on various wishlists, thanks to the great enabling nature of the Asian Beauty community XD

I will get another sub from them in the future. They seem to be finally finding their footing with this service, and I cannot wait to see how far they come (heh) in future pouches!

I hope you enjoyed the unpouching of this month’s Mask Maven. Please feel free to request a mask for me to review from these! I started booking my masks in advance, and I can see me using a couple from these picks in the coming weeks… but with so many masks, how can a sheet mask maven choose?? 😛

xoxox,

MOTD: TonyMoly ‘I’m Real’ Seaweed Mask

Hey dolls! Today’s mask is from one of my favorite AB companies, TonyMoly. They’re a Korean based company who have managed to make quite a name for themselves here in the States. They have two retail locations in NYC (they just had the grand opening for their official flagship store a few weeks ago! I totes missed it T_T)

Anyway, I bought this mask with its 10 sisters from Amazon. I bought them for $16.99, which works out to about $1.54 a mask, and it’s cheaper now! Bastards. It’s loads cheaper than buying it directly from the store (I bought some from the TM retail store for $3.45 each). I can tell you definitively that they are legit (at least the ones I got…) as I had my bae red wine from TM and have used the one from this kit and they were exactly the same.

According to Yesstyle, the mask description is as follows:

Nutrient-rich seaweed mask nourishes and purifies with select marine flora that purge skin of impurities and restore vitality to a lackluster complexion. 

The featured ingredient is Fucus Vesiculosus Extract (also known as bladderwrack). This plant is known for its antioxidant and water binding properties,. It has also been shown in lab studies to improve skin elasticity and thickening of the skin. Short, but simple and awesome. Sounds like something my skin might want to drink in 😛

Seaweed has been enjoying a lot of love in the AB (and now also Western Beauty!) community, thanks to the ever-elusive (but seemingly now in stock!!) Whamisa masks that are made with kelp instead of cotton or whatever other pulpy shit they use to make masks. People rant and rave about these masks, but I am not sure I am ready to fork over $14 for one mask when I can get 11 TM masks for the same price. But I digress, as usual.

So did the mask live up to the hype?? On to the review!

Mask Details: This mask had a nice clean smell; I’d even venture enough to say it smelled kind of fresh. It’s a “three layer” cotton mask, It was thin and soaked with essence, There was enough left to rub on my neck and boobs 😛 Like its sister that was previously reviewed (the red wine mask) it was thin but easy to peel apart and it settled on my face nicely.

Mask Fit: Like most sheet masks I’ve tried, this had a standard not-quite-right fit but it didn’t cover my whole face. It stopped short about 1/2 in from my ears :/ I remembered how fragile the red wine mask was, and this was exactly the same. I ended up stretching out the mouth hole while wearing it XD

First Impression:  I kept it on for almost a whole episode of True Detective (about 45 minutes), as it started to dry out around the chin area. When I took it off, my face stayed plump and moist for about 5 or so minutes while the essence soaked in, I continued with my ritual and went about my business.

Final Thoughts: Well, I must say that my skin feels nice today (yayyy :D). My skin is nice and clear, although I do have a pimple that sprouted up… but it was one I knew was coming (the spot has been kind of tender for the last couple of days. Booo). I wonder if the purifying that was promised has something to do with it? Hmm. In any case,  I really liked this mask.  Would I buy this again?? Most definitely. This is the fourth TM mask from the “I’m Real” line that I’ve tried and really liked! This definitely helped this line of masks earn Holy Grail status for me. I even made a meme:

#sorrynotsorry Taylor XD

Feel free to use the meme as you please 😛
SO yeah,.. take thine ass to Amazon and buy the multipack. So far, all of the masks I’ve tried were awesome and totes worth the $17 I paid.
Until next time, where I will have some snaily goodness to share with you,

MOTD: Innisfree It’s Real! Squeeze Bija Mask

Heyy y’all! Today’s mask is from Innisfree, a Korean based company. I bought this mask from TesterKorea for 950 won, or about $0.84. This company is known for their natural approach to skincare. They tend to use a lot of what us Westerners would call ‘exotic’ ingredients, primarily from Jeju Island in Korea. 
With that said, I hard a hard time finding anything about Bija. Even Google was like, what the fuck is it? XD After a look on the manufacturer’s site, I found what they were referring to: torreya oil. Interesting.
According to Innisfree:

1. It’s real squeeze mask with torreya oil! The fruits of the torreya tree have been highly appreciated and used as a precious ingredient.
2. Jeju green complex: Jeju green complex that consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, Camellia leaves and orchid keep your skin healthy.

Ooo, gimmie gimme, I thought whilst selecting my mask last night. Sounds like what my skin needs after a muggy, grimy day in NYC!


….but seriously, wtf is torreya oil and why is there a picture of a fucking lime on the package?? I guess a bunch of crushed up leaves just wasn’t appealing enough on its own eh? XD

But I digress.

Let’s take a look at that featured ingredients shall we?

  • Torreya oil is known as Bija in Korean. I could find nothing specific as to why it’s good for “troubled skin” . The only conclusive thing I’ve found about it is that it’s a “skin conditioning emollient”: a regular ass moisturizer. Huh. My Google Foo is no match for this ingredient 😦
  • Green tea is awesome, as we found out in a previous mask review. Antioxidants, anti-inflammatory yumminess, yo.
  • Tangerines are my second favorite citrus fruit (besides clementines ;P). Besides being yummy, they are chock full of all sorts of awesomeness: vitamin C, folate and beta-carotene. They also contain three b vitamins (including niacinamide! Yayyy). Anti-aging, skin brightening, wound healing…. it’s an alll around a great ingredient.
  • Cactus just became the new darling of Elle. Apparently it has more antioxidants and vitamins than argan oil: known and love universally for its many wonderful attributes. 
  • Camellia has been a beauty staple of Japanese geisha for centuries. Apparently it’s been proven to support healthy skin function and promote the making of collagen in the skin. 
  • Orchid extract is known for reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, its repairing/protective properties, and as being a humectant that also moisturizes, soothes and conditions skin.
As a side note, apparently Innisfree puts most (if not all) of the ingredients (besides the bija) in all of their It’s Real! Squeeze masks, so good to know. I do plan on reviewing the rest of the masks in the series that I have on hand, so this just saved my future self some work 😛

Anyway, enough veggie talk! On to the review!

Mask details: This mask had a nice clean smell…. not fruity or medicinal as I expected (damn misleading packaging….) It is a cotton mask that was decently soaked with essence, and I only had a little left in the package to do The Yoosh.

Mask Fit: This was the standard not-quite-fitting. I had to rip the eye and mouth holes for it to be comfortable, but it did fit my whole face so yay for that 😀

First Impressions: This mask held up for about 45 minutes before drying out, When I took it off, my face felt moist and plump. It took a few minutes for the essence to pat it, then I finished my routine and went about my business.

Final thought: I didn’t have any major skin issues yesterday (the last of my forehead breakout is all but gone now), so I cannot really attest to its’ advertised anti-trouble properties. Although I will say that my face felt great this morning! I kinda wish I would have saved it for the inevitable bad breakout to test it out. I had a schedule of masks to try and help my breakout, but it got much better by yesterday morning, and I just said fuck it… too much bother agonizing over choosing another mask XD

Would I rebuy it? I sure would! This is the second mask from them I tried (I have a double of the other one, which will be reviewed someday :P) and so far, I’ve enjoyed both masks from them. It’s not a spectacular mask series to me so far by any means, but they’re a decent low cost mask to have in stock for when you tire of more complex masks. The focus on more natural ingredients is a bonus for me, but they do contain alcohol so if your skin is sensitive to it (mine does not seem to be… but then I used to slather on alcoholic astringents and fucking Ponds cold cream on my face at night for my routine XD) you might wanna skip this mask.

Until next time,

xoxox
