Snail mucus and bee venom are known for their anti-bacterial and healing properties. Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask works wonderfully well for acne prone and troubled skin. The two main ingredients may sound exotic and bit scary but this sheet mask is gentle and does not sting in any way!
This mask was the first thing I wanted to try as soon as I saw the Pokemon collection in Tony Moly, but I didn’t buy it. Why didn’t I buy it? Because the Pikachu mask (not the other characters’) you can get as a present when you buy any of the other products! Tonymoly Pikachu Moisture Mask Sheet looks different from the one in the collection (this one is rectangular, the other one actually is Pikachu shaped) because they wanted to differentiate the ones you buy from the ones you receive as an extra(gift). This one, the squared one, is the one you receive as an extra. But I should let you know – both masks are the same, the same formula, smell, same everything except package!
So, as soon as I got it I tried it. And kept using it. And now I decided to write about it! I’m sure most of you like this mask, because Pikachu is so cute, even if you don’t care for Pokemon itself.
I first discovered this I’m From Honey Mask after an epically lazy day that consisted of eating and binge watching YouTube beauty reviews. I came across Gothamista’s YouTube Channel and saw she had posted a video called “Honey Masks Smack Down. Farmacy Honey Potion and I’m From Honey Mask.”
Well, I gravitate towards honey in my skincare products like Winnie the Pooh. I also own and LOVE the Farmacy Honey Potion mask but my supply of it was dwindling so I was on the hunt for something more affordable but just as effective. “I’m From” is a Korean skincare brand that I was already familiar with because I am a slave to their honey sheet masks. According to Wishtrend’s website, the “I’m From Honey Mask” uses almost 40% pure honey from Mount Jiri in South Korea.
Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review:
Gone are the cold morning airs. It’s been very hot these past few days from where I live which means that summer has officially started. You see, I have issues with summer. First, I find the humid air pesky because it literally slaps me in the face whenever I go out. Secondly, the weather seems to draw out the oiliest in me. Can you imagine how icky that is? It’s as if the universe assisted me in prepping my face with oil so that it could attract all the dirt and dust outside.
Super gross, I know! You’d probably nod incessantly and yell go girl! If I say that I seriously need deep cleansing. We all know that impurities means breakout, right? So before things get worse, I decided to find something that could help me prevent major skin catastrophe.
Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream Review:
Nature Republic is a brand that is close to my heart. I’ve considered it as safe-buy brand for I’ve never experienced breakout with any of their products I’ve tried so far. I also think that their price range is decent although some line could be very expensive but generally prices are okay, not too cheap that you would doubt efficacy.
I first encountered Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream few years ago when I was looking for something to give my mom after my trip to Korea. She was crazy about moisturizers so I bought couple of jars to gift her and she really liked it. I didn’t get one for myself because I honestly don’t find the need of moisturizing. It is only recently that felt the need to take care of my skin better because… okay, I’m not getting any younger. Let’s see the verdict.
First of all – this is a product that not even many Koreans know about! So, why did I buy an anti-pollution defensor? In Korea there is a lot of pollution. I don’t only mean the trash on the street, visual pollution, sound pollution, light pollution, AIR pollution as most big cities have. Those who live in south east Asia know for a fact the real enemy is the thin powder, the Chinese dust, yellow dust, red dust, it comes with a lot of names. Coming from a clean country with clean air, and living by the sea on which I dived several times and gave me a sodium cleansing, when I arrived to Korea right away I felt the damages of this pollution type. I got asthma, skin irritation and later skin allergies. When the fine dust is severe I don’t even need to check the reports, I can just look in the mirror and I will have a bunch of infected, swollen ‘pimples’ 3 times the size of a normal acne pimple, which hurt and are red as if I had just scratched them. And so there are two things one must do: proper cleansing and proper prevention. This is, by my experience, the best prevention one can take against pollution. And it really works even just as a pore protector, even when I went back home for the summer! So, with all these characteristics I just had to try this. Oh, did I mention it also has SPF 30 PA++? It’s not enough for the summer but during the winter it does the trick.
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask Original Review:
Back in Europe, even when my skincare routine was as basic as 3 steps – foam cleanser, water mist, and cream, every other day I did a clay mask. Literally, I had powdered purified clay to which I would add water and make a paste, and then apply it to my face. The reason is that clay cleans and gently removes the dead skin.
So, of course when it comes to Korean skin care I also find it important to have a good clay mask, right? There are several good ones out there, but to me the one that takes the prize is the Innisfree Jeju volcanic clay mask in original. The collection has several different types, this one, the super version – for a stronger effect, and a pack for localized treatment, and of course a cleanser, a toner, a lotion, the list goes on.
The real nature collection is an affordable line of mainly natural products, and they have a lot of different scents, or base products. They extend from Rose to Argan, and of course Olive, among others. The products also have different prices, depending on the star ingredient, and as a Mediterranean girl I really wanted to try something from the Olive part of the collection. So I chose Nature Republic Olive Real Nature Cream.
