[REVIEW] Illi Hanbang Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask

Illi Hanbang Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask Review

Illi Hanbang Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask Review:

I literally bought this mask, and a few from the same collection, because of the packaging. I really like Korean traditional paintings and designs, and in a mask pack it doesn’t get much more traditional than this! I chose this one to start, out of all the ones I bought, because of the color, it’s a beautiful burgundy.

Other than that, Illi has been catching my eye for a long time, I want to try their creams, cleansers, all of it. It’s a really affordable brand by Amore Pacific, the same brand that owns IOPE, Laneige, Mamonde, Aritaum,… So it’s just really tempting!

[REVIEW] Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask

Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review

Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review:

On my visit to the Femmue show room I purchased a few things. I mean, natural ingredients, flowers, no animal testing – it all sounds attractive just by writing it, imagine when I tested it on the store. So I walked out with it! But I paid of course.

Anyway, this mask I was told works as a wash off mask, but also as a light sleeping mask. Of course I was intrigued. Do you remember when I wrote that you can also use the Mamonde Calendula sleeping mask as a wash off mask? This mask was actually the inspiration for me trying that! So, I decided to use it many many days in a row and in many many different ways, and I think you should read this. If not for the mask then for the new stuff you might find out!

[REVIEW] G9 Skin Color Clay Sheet Tension Red Mask

G9 Skin Color Clay Sheet Tension Red Review

G9 Skin Color Clay Sheet Tension Red Mask Review:

This is the first product I tried from the brand G9 skin, Berrisom’s sister brand. I really loved the other products I previously tried from Berrisom so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this one. This mask attracted me because of its unique design and formula, as it’s made of clay! To this day I haven’t found any similar mask sheets that are made from clay.

IOPE Volume Treatment Lip Balm Review:

I love lip care, I would even say my lips can’t live without it. They are tremendously dry. So, once I saw this product by IOPE, a brand I have come to know and love, and decided to give it a shot! I mean, I literally can have the dirtiest face and will still apply lip balm. So, I bought this, and I will guide you through seven days of using it!

[Review] Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack

Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack Review

Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack Review:

I like sheet masks. Using them is fun and if it’s a really good mask the result often calls for ‘WOW effect’. Although that effect is temporary, it’s always fun looking at your face in the mirror after taking off the sheet of your face and touching that ‘chok chok’ skin of yours. Isn’t it?

Or maybe I am just a little bit goofy. Nope! Still loving my sheet masks.

So this one in particular caught my attention. This is bio-cellulose mask dipped in mix of Nobel prize winning ingredient, precious metal, amino acids and herbs. Claims that mention skin barrier recovery, collagen boosting, nourishing skin, increasing skin elasticity. All the magic words are there. What else than to quickly click “Buy now”.  Also doesn’t hurt that the brand itself has the reputation of very effective and with wide array of products of proven results.

[Review] A’pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask Watermelon

A'pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask Watermelon Review

A’pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask Watermelon was purchased by Cosmeperks.

So, summer is here and all brands are doing stuff that’s too tempting for most of us. Whereas the season for most of the new products is over, all brands steadily release new products during the summer time. Etude House released the ice cream shaped lip tint (reviewed), and in this case A’pieu released this ice cream shaped mask sheet! Coincidence? Most likely…

This mask comes in four different flavors: melon, watermelon, pineapple, and mandarin orange (actually hallabong – a sweeter Japanese genetically modified strand of mandarin orange) if I’m not mistaken. Well, both in Korea as in Portugal summer means watermelon! So of course I got that one! Also, it’s one of the prettiest packages, because it has a higher color contrast. I promise if you read the claims of this mask you’ll at least be a little surprised, considering the price of this product!

[Review] Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex | Peel-off Mask

Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex Review

Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex Review:

Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex is one of the popular products from the high-end brand Sulwhasoo. It is a peel-off type of mask which has a pretty interesting manner of usage. I don’t really own any peel-off mask nor do I recall any experience with this kind of product so I am really new to this. My experience with this product would most likely dictate if I would need a peel-off mask in my skincare routine.

Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream Review

Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream Review:

What is Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream? –is my exact thought as I was getting deluxe samples from Sulwhasoo. Honestly, I don’t intend getting this product had it not been included in Sulwhasoo mask set that I am buying. Apparently, it is a massage cream that helps revitalize and harmonize skin to restore vibrancy and deliver nutrition to tired skin. Do I even need this? I fear not. But let’s see if my experience with Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream could change my mind.  ☺

[Review] Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Exfoliating Gel

Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Exfoliating Gel Review

Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Exfoliating Gel Review:

I have witnessed how awesome Asian skincare products can get especially with consistency so I am truly committed with routines this time –they aren’t especially long but I feel that my 4 to 6 steps at night has improved my skin’s overall condition.

This thought made me consider to invest more on my skincare so I thought of stepping up my brand a bit and see if my skin would get better results. I have no complaints with the current brands that I am using, most of them are well performing, but it would be nice to get something that gives you the Hey-I’m-talking-business vibe. One of the brands that I have been eyeing is Sulwhasoo –specifically, the Snowise line. Of course, I didn’t go mad and cart them like crazy! Luckily, there are a lot of online sellers who sell deluxe sized of these, but really? It’s kind of nuts to get them at high price point considering these were just testers/GWP but whatever.  Since exfoliating is my favorite part of routine, I tested Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Exfoliating Gel first.
