[Review] My Beauty Diary Caviar Mask

Standard

20130524-193112.jpg

This is the mask of the season for me! Caviar mask from the famous My Beauty Diary brand

According to the box, the caviar essence and makes your skin firmer and repairs skin.
It can also tighten pores and hydrates skin
Suitable for tired , dry, damaged, saggy skin.

Sounds powerful ya!

Personally used it about 5 times. And i really like how nourishing it feels.
I slap it on my face after a long week of deprived sleep.
After removing, i massage the rest into my skin.

I love how it doesnt leave it sticky and skin is hydrated, glowing and firm!!

I chose raspberry as it is for nourishing and firming, smthg which i need 😀

like any mask sheet, i place this on my skin after washing and applying the MISSHA Time Revolution Facial Treatment Essence

i like how this came with the flaps for eyes but i also never use the flaps.

i’ve used this about 5 times and am happy with it – its moisturizing and my skin feels taut and firm after each use.

you’ll have seen this photo in my previous post. this is right after peeling of the mask sheet and patting the essence in.

[Review] MISSHA Anti Trouble Patch & Firming Eye Patch

Standard

As you may know, i was in Korea in December and i had some huge acnes popping out.
i was quite upset cos i thot the weather would be perfect for better skin,
and it was not the time of the month.

so i bought some stuff hopefully for quick fix and test the effectiveness!

First up,
The MISSHA speedy solution Anti Trouble Patch.
IMG_0925

i have no idea what its saying..
IMG_0922

it came in 10 stickers of various sizes but defitely large enough to cover your deveploping ache.
IMG_0923

i pasted 2. one below my left nostril and one near where my finger is pointing.
not very obvious right the sticker. i think it is designed to be worn out as well.
IMG_0924

Does it work?
i wore it to bed and when i woke up i do feel that the pimple did not increase in size.
normally for me it would when it is in the developing stage.
so im rather happy.
but of cos there is still a bump and i waited for it to ripe and yes i squeeze it.
all is good now.

i would say this works to stop the inflamation and prevent swelling 🙂

secondly, to reduce my eye bags, i got this!

IMG_0926

i really like the material. its like thick felt fabric material, which is heavier compared to the other eye patches i have tried.
it is cooling and comfortable to my skin as well.
IMG_0927

so this is how i look before bed.
IMG_0928

Does it work?
i think it does slightly. i think i took out the eye patch about 45 min later and continue sleeping.
the skin under my eye felt firmer and moisturized!

these are rather cheap i cant remember the exact price but i recalled it was about 1500 won maximum (SGD1.70)

[Review] Montagne Jennesse Strawberry Souffle Mask

Standard

to be honest i cant rmb how i got this. i believed its from the Watsons Vanity Trove many months back

looks like an environmentally friendly brand!!

this mask is of a creamy rich texture. and it feels good to slap on cold cream on my face on a hot day in Singapore.

the amount of mask is enough just for 1 face. i was expecting more so that i can use twice.. haha.

after applying.

can you see the little beads in the cream?

it dries up after 10 min and my face became so tight and dry so its time to wash off.

i raelly dont like washing off these type of masks cos it takes alot of wiping to remove by water and i think its better to use wet wipes to remove than rinsing…

here’s how it looks after washing off and drying.

my skin is more clarified and clear. surprisingly its not as drying as i thot.
oh ya, its a moisturizing mask! my skin does feel more moist, even without lotion or moisturizer.

thanks for reading.

[Review] My Beauty Diary Bird Nest Mask

Standard

another of my many masks from Taiwan!!

for the longest time, chinese have prized bird nest as a delicacy for promoting collagen growth and good skin. my mom apparently ate lots of it when she was pregnant with me for my ‘fair’ skin. so from consuming it, now this masks is to putting it on the face.


after 15 min , i peel off the masks to a sticky and wet residue.
it look me abuot 5 min of massaging and patting to have all of it evaporated and sucked up.
my skin feels softer and more nourished.

the next day my skin still feels soft and plump.

[Review] ETUDE HOUSE I Need You, Pearl Extract Mask Sheet

Standard

my friend gave us some Etude House mask sheet after coming back from korea. I love receiving masks!!

this is my first Etude House mask sheet.


im glad it does not contain parabens, and contains hydrolysed collegen.


there’s nothing special about the mask sheet but it fits perfectly on my face. 🙂

i removed it after 30 min and pat the rest of the essence into my skin.
and i stayed up for another hour before gg to bed. by then, my face is already sticky and greasy but i still went to bed anyway…

the next day my face is still layered with that sticky greasy film, and i think it clogged my pores. cos my existing pimples became worse.

here’s a photo with my camera ‘smooth skin’ effect.

I think its a decent mask and wouldnt mind buying again if its cheap!

[Review] LOVEMORE Red Magic White Power Lifting Mask

Standard

this is a face and neck mask, with 5cm more depth for the entire neck

Ingredients: (contains paraben)

the texture of the mask is really interesting, its like quilted! made of fabric like material, which i love. i prefer fabric to paper

this is how deep the mask can go!!

after 20 min…

not bad! i feel my skin has more clarity and luminous

the diamond powder also made my skin ‘glow’

i pat the rest of the essence in and about 5 min later,

there is no sticky afterfeel.

skin is soft and moisturized.

i cant wait to buy more LOVEMORE masks!

[Review] Sexylook Ultra Whitening Duo Lifting Mask

Standard

i went on a shopping spree on taiwan masks on secretive.sg and got myself a bundle of masks,
this is one of them!


the mask comes with earhooks and an extension for for neck!

Ingredients: yay to no parabens and butelene glycol!! i am def getting more masks from here.

the part for neck actually extends to the bottom part under your chin so not really covering the neck. but it is good enuf! fitted snugly and abit tight due to my wide face

After removing – my face felt super moist and bright!
can feel that there is a certain ‘glow’ right??

This is me the next morning under better lighting. i still feel my skin is moist and fair 🙂

yes i am going to buy more lovemore masks from secretive.sg! you can get the taiwan masks for a cheaper rate and they deliver fast!

[Review] LOVEMORE Wine Yeast Whitening Mask Sheet

Standard


another mask from the beloved land of Masks – Taiwan!

Chanced upon this at Watsons the other day, and it looks really interesting so bought 1 to try. cost a galloping $3.90!! double or triple most of my other sheet masks.


i guess what made me buy is the ‘wine yeast’ formula and the story about the ‘youthful hands of sake brewery women’. like SK2 but cheaper!! haha.


even comes with hologram sticker for authenticity man!

the ingredients looks ok, no parabens. im surprised that the 1st ingredient is NOT water but butylene glycol. in fact water is almost at the back of the list, meaning the quantity is one of the least.
by the way i heard that butylene glycol is not that good for skin too, as it is one of the stuff added into petrol? but so far, i haven seen anything without both butelyne glycol nor parabens.

As for the mask sheet, it comes stuck between a plastic white and blue film.

i am unable to take photo while putting on mask so no picture of the mask itself.
BUT i really want to say that the mask sheet is really unlike anything i’ve seen!!!! its incredibily soft, thin and comfortable! its so thin that i have a really hard time putting on my face and spreading it.

but once it is spread nicely, every part of your skin is adhering to the mask and its like a 2nd skin. I SHOW YOU.


this can knock off my fave Neutrogena in terms of mask sheet.

My thoughts: after 20 min, the essence leaves the skin really soft. skin is slightly sticky on my cheeks and chin area, but not so much for my forehead. i dont foresee visible results but with prolonged use i am rather confident this will work 🙂

i just bought 2 more of these online as well – www.secretive.sg ($2.90 each, cheaper!)
