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!!

[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] 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!)

[Sponsored Review] Rachel K Radiance Illuminator Collagen + Lotus Stem Cell Hydrogel Mask

Standard

I have been facing alot of stress at work the last 2 weeks with very depleted sleep and its really showing on my skin these days – tired, dehydrated skin and poor oil control.

My busy schedule limits my skincare regime to cleanse, tone, mask before going to bed, and I’m delighted that the nice ladies at Rachel K sent me this!!

Rachel K Radiance Illuminator Collagen + Lotus Stem Cell Hydrogel Mask

Look at the benefits!! its smthg that i really need. badly.

Did you know…

Hydrogel masks deliver 11-18% more moisture than traditional skincare sheet masks. Hydrogel melts onto your skin, reacting directly to your skin’s temperature. It effectively locks in moisture, which its Trans-Dermal Technolofy allows hydrating agents to penetrate at level twice greater than other moisturizers.

This easy-to-use mask has stem cells extracted from the lotus flower, which promotes the division of skin cells, enhancing the skin’s intrinsic ability to renew itself. its gel-like texture contours to your face leaving it soft and hydrated, while refining the fine lines and wrinkles. its cool and refreshing formula, coupled with powerful bio-cleansing abilities, remove dead skin cells, cleans, refines, and leaves skin smooth and glowing. For normal, oily, or acne-prone skin, its natural extracts work to clear out pores without irritation while its hydrating ingredients deliver oil-free moisture, ensuring that your skin is never over dried and always beautifully vibrant

You can also see from the ingredients below that there’s alot of natural goodness in this mask <3. i’ve never seen a mask with so many extracts before!!! pro!

you can also see its made in Korea! cant wait to try already.

this is my BEFORE picture:

can really see fatigue… 😦

this is a gel mask! its my 3rd time using a gel mask and YES i prefer gel mask to sheet mask. its more cooling and you can literally see the absorbtion when the mask sheet gets thinner. it more fun putting jelly on your face right?

this masks comes in 2 parts, one for the upper half of your face until the cheeks.

the lower half covers the lower cheeks, chin,and upper lip area.

the transparent colourless mask is lined to a plastic sheet which you need to peel off before placing on your face. I have some difficulty opening the mask to put on my face as the mask is so soft. but it does not tear. just be gentle when opening.

you will need to spend some time to soothe out the mask on your face.

the mask is really cooling! for the next 40 minutes i keep touching my own face cos its soft and cooling lol.

40 minutes later…

sorry i did not take a BEFORE photo of the mask sheet as my hands are covered with the essence and cant take.

the mask did become thinner, and the essence absorbed.

(i spend the next 3 min playing with the mask sheet – the material is really strong cos it doesnt tear no matter how hard i pulled =X)

YOU WANT TO SEE AFTER?

got improve? i feel that it is definitely more radiant and of cos plumped with essence haha.

maybe my pores are hopeless case so i dont feel that my pores become refined.

and what i really love is how make up glides on smoothly after that. this is me with BB cream only

throughout the day i did not blott my face at all until 6 hours later. i noticed my blotter does not have as much oil as before. =D

i am pleased with this mask and would recommend this to anyone who is troubled with dull skin.

What i like about it:

1) gel material

2) 30ml of goodness (compared to 23ml of usual sheet)

3) Research was well done in creating this mask

4) the composition/ingredients of the mask

5) skin calming and cooling effect

6) good oil control

Retails at SGD5.90 at Watsons starting July.

On a not so related note, for those who do not know, Rachel K is a homegrown Singapore brand and i am proud that this brand has come this far. i rmb it seeing their make up pdts some years back and the brand has really grown over the years. From my own experience and observations, i can really sense the commitment of Rachel K’s to making good cosmetics. keep it up 🙂

by the way, you can find Rachel K products exclusive at Watsons outlets
