Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review:

If I could associate a single word to Blithe Cosmetics, it would be INNOVATION. This brand does not carry the typical skin care products most people are familiar with. In fact, when I first encountered the brand and their products, I was utterly clueless. Blithe is a brand that caters to people living a busy lifestyle in an urban setting. Hence, most of their products aim to address skin concerns brought about by pollution, such as fine dust, in a manner that is both efficient and enjoyable.

Honestly speaking, I haven’t tried a lot of their products because they are a bit on the pricier spectrum. The one and only product I have from them is the one I’m reviewing today – the Blithe Patting Splash Mask in the variant Energy Yellow Citrus and Honey. I got this patting mask as a part of a curated box from an Asian Beauty website which is basically a set of products from different brands sold at a much cheaper price than their retail value.

It actually took months before I opened this up because, as I’ve mentioned earlier, I was clueless as to what it is and what it does. After doing a bit of research and finding out what an amazing product this actually is, I immediately dived in for a splash (get it?) and never looked back.

I’m already halfway into using up this bottle so I think I can now share my honest opinion on this.

[REVIEW] The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review:

I’ll admit that I’ve been totally obsessed with wash off masks this year! And strangely, I’ve been wanting to try floral and rose related ones, because they just sound good? Earlier in the year, I was looking for a new wash off mask and I came across this one. There weren’t many reviews about it, but the fact that it said “daily” and also “moisturizing” made me want it. After all I want a wash off mask that can be used daily, and is also easy to wash off. Of course, it needs to be moisturizing as well!

You can say it was a purchase without any research or planning (I always seem to do this, oops!). I was simply looking for a basic wash off mask that I could use every day. One that wouldn’t cost a lot, or one that wouldn’t be too hard to wash off. Plus when I looked up the mask ingredients, it seemed to have so few ingredients which was another reason I decided to buy it. Read on to see if I regret my latest purchase, or if in the end I liked it.

[REVIEW] Mizon Honey Black Sugar Scrub

Mizon Honey Black Sugar Scrub Review

Mizon Honey Black Sugar Scrub Review:

As skincare addicts, we all know how important step #3 is in our routine, which is exfoliation. I have a sensitive skin, so it was pretty hard for me to look for an exfoliant since most of them are pretty harsh on the skin when massaged. The Mizon Honey Black Sugar Scrub is one of the first exfoliants I have tried, and since then, it is never gone in my skincare list.

[REVIEW] Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower Review

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower Review:

Etude House actually released this 3-minute line last year!! It’s based on the famous Ottogi 3-minute food series/range, which is a really cool and cute idea in my opinion. They came out with a range of 3 min sheet masks (30 in a pack), this wash off mask and two types of sheet masks. One of the sheet masks – the 3 minutes Turmeric one was reviewed by Ana B.

I was especially interested in the wash off mask because well I haven’t tried too many wash off masks and they seem like a great idea for the shower. The fact that it’s “3 minutes” means it should be easy to wash off and great for lazy people like me. It also contains calendula flower petals and turmeric, but more importantly to me was the fact that it was designed to be used in the shower. Since I have dry skin – I really avoid getting my face wet in the shower, until near the end because otherwise my skin gets irritated and dry. So, to me this mask looked really appealing and I hoped it would be one that washed off easily, as well as providing the boost of much needed moisture for my skin. Shall we see how well this wash off mask worked for me?

[REVIEW] The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Daily Mask Foam

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Daily Mask Foam Review

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Daily Mask Foam Review:

I got this product a long while back but then I bought other clay masks I really loved and never really got to even try this mask. It also is a clay mask, sort of like a melting clay mask, but mainly it’s a daily clay mask! Most of them are meant to be used two times per week.

So when I read this (when I finally paid attention) it intrigued me and I wanted to use this mask starting right then. I guess it’s one of the best instances of shopping my stash! And although it’s no magical wonder it is a very good mask and it also taught me about other clay masks. Not to mention it’s a mask and a cleanser all at once!

[REVIEW] Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque

Kiehl's Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque Review

Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque Review:

First, let’s get a bit of our knowledge on the history of the brand.
Kiehl’s is one of the most prestagious brand name when it comes to high-end skincare products.
In 1951, there was a store founded to serve patrons in East Village, Manhattan. Until 1894, John Kiehl purchased the store and renamed it Kiehl Pharmacy. In 1921, Irving Morse – apprentice to Kiehl bought the pharmacy. This marks another remarkable developing stage of the brand. During the 70s, Kiehl’s gained great popularity as a luxurious cosmetics brand with safe ingredients and especially, the launch of the renown Calendula Herbal extract Alcohol-free toner. The distinct marketing method of Kiehl’s during this time is based on word-of-mouth and giving free samples to customers. Later, Kiehl’s is purchased by L’oreal Group and now, Kiehl’s has more than 250 stores and showrooms all over the world. Until now, Kiehl’s has gained the reputation for their wide range of products: haircare, skincare, fragrance, bodycare and men’s grooming. All of the products from Kiehl’s are well-known for their natural-based and safe ingredients offered via sophisticated formulations.

To celebrate my bachelor graduation, I decided to get something a bit fancy and Kiehl’s masks came first in my mind. Moreover, the Spring weather in Vietnam is getting so hot and humid. Everyday in the period from early January to March, the temperature would rocket from 28oC to as high as 34-35oC at noon and then “calm down” back to 27-28oC in the evening. Usually, my skin would lose immense amount of hydration and produce a lot of sebum if left unattended.

Combining all of the conditions, I would opt for something that offers refreshing sensation, helps control my sebum production and clears up my congested pores. Up till this point, you may know what I was about to get: yes, you can tell by the title already haha. It’s the Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque. My summary review for this product is: I love it x 10 times.

[REVIEW] Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask

Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask Review

Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask Review:

I’ve faithfully been using the Cosrx honey sleeping mask for a long time, when one day I saw that Etude House had one in their Honey Cera line. I became curious to see how I would like the Etude House mask, since I’ve been a fan of the Cosrx one for a long time. I wasn’t expecting them to be similar at all, but the honey and ceramides drew me to try the Etude House.

I had not heard anything about this mask, so I wanted to try it just because it comes in a larger size and I needed a change from the usual sleeping pack that I use.  What I failed to realize until I had ordered it – was that this mask was actually a wash off mask and not a sleeping pack, unlike the Cosrx one. So can it be used as a sleeping pack or is it purely only a wash off mask, read on to see…

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Melting Clay Mask Review

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Melting Clay Mask Review:

Innisfree finally decided to open their stores in Indonesia in 2017 last year. When I was visiting their new opening store, this product was the first one that caught my eyes. Totally because it is a “clay mask”, and at that time I knew very well how popular Innisfree Clay Mask and I heard so many good things about it from beauty gurus. Because I hope that this product will give the satisfactory result, or probably better than the Super Volcanic Clay Mask, so I decided to try out this product.

[REVIEW] Korres Natural Clay Deep Cleansing Mask

Korres Natural Clay Deep Cleansing Mask Review

Korres Natural Clay Deep Cleansing Mask Review:

Probably the smallest non-single usage mask I’ve ever seen and used, this is just one of the many, many flavors Korres came up with. It basically was their own attempt to jump on the charcoal mask trend but in their own way. This one is meant for deep cleansing which at first doesn’t sound as attractive or special as firming or brightening sounds like but let me say one thing.

Everything depends on cleansing correctly. Sure, double cleansing does a great job but once in a while it’s important to clear your skin from all the unwanted, persistent stuff. By doing that, you’re supposed to reduce sebum production which in excess, can cause acne and all of its children to appear. If you can prevent that, you can also get a smoother skin texture. On top of that, it’s all natural, it’s just cleansing.
