Review: Faceshop Pure Water Facial Mist Jeju Flower and Jeju Marine

Today I'm going to review on TheFaceShop Pure Water Facial Mist. It comes in 3 types. However, I bought and tried only two of it (JejuMarine & JejuFlower). I simply love it product as it hydrates my skin and does not clog my pore like other moisturizer. As I have mentioned some moisturizer that I've tried before clogged my pores and makes my skin look horrible... my skin will look oily instead of being moisturized. Clogged pores also means more pimple, whiteheads and blackheads (can be quite bothersome to remove and it can make your pore big). Hence, it is important to find the right moisturizer for your skin!

Review: Faceshop Real Nature Mask Pomegranate

Studying has been productive today. No motivation at all! Why me??

I shall review a face mask which I used yesterday night. Maybe I will get back my motivation later though half of the day is gone.

Yesterday night, I used Faceshop Real Nature Mask Pomegranate. It's called 'real nature' mask because it contains 1,000mg of pomegranate extract. Extra facts: eating pomegranate actually helps improve digestive system which may help in preventing acne. Besides the juice has anti-aging properties. Pomegranate is rich in vitamin B1 and B2. The mask is suppose to help in increasing elasticity.

Ingredients - always check them if you have sensitive skin!

How it looks like inside

So after using it, I don't find the mask fantastic. The mask does not give the oily trace directly after use it. It doesn't make your skin oily too. But I find the cutting of the mask is a little odd. How should i put it. The    holes for the eyes and mouth is a little too big relative to other mask I've used and the cutting masks it difficult place it nicely on my face. Besides that, my pimples got bigger when I woke up today. Bummer! Maybe the mask does not suit my skin. By the way, I have a combination skin type. And my skin feels a little oily than usually, I'm not sure what it's caused by though. I'll rate this product 2.5/5

That's all for now. I better get back to doing my tutorials, they are waiting for me!

Review: MJCARE Lemon Essence Mask + Side Talk

Recently, I started watching Moon That Embrace The Sun. I really like the plot and the child actor and actresses. Their acting skills are great to the extent that I was hoping that the child actors/actresses will just continue the plot without replacing them with the adult actors and actresses. Hehe. Well... Maybe they can change the Lee Hwon, Heo Yeon and Seol (because they look slightly kiddish) to the adult version and remain the rest of the cast. I am still waiting eagerly for the episode 7 & 8 to be subbed! XD Can't wait to see the development between Prince Yang Myung and Heo Yeon!

Heres my review for MJCARE Lemon Mask:

The feel and the essence of the mask is similar to the review stated in my MJACRE Mung-Bean Mask. Whats different about this mask is that it has a crispy lemony smell similar to lemon air freshener smell. (but it is not exactly the same) I'm a huge fan of lemon smell ! The mask was really refreshing when I wore it. And yes it is refreshers my face and moisturizes my skin well. However, there is an anomaly. It also makes my face significantly whiter and I can see that my face is glowing after use. (Even though, the manufacturer did not mentioned that is will whitens my skin. This makes me the love the mask more!) In overall I rate this mask 4/5 since it is a wonderful mask and seriously cheap. Will purchase this again in the near future. Sayonara!

P.S. For those who are interested in this mask, I actually bought it from gmarket.

Review: Nature Republic Whitening Collagen Dream Mask

JYJ ~ Looks like I'm gonna sleep well tonight
 You're wrong I'm not going to blog about JYJ/kpop today....

 I'm going to review Nature Republic Whitening Collagen Dream Mask. I think I know why they call it 'dream ' mask. Just take a look at the packaging.

Pretty packaging and it is endorsed by JYJ
(for those who doesn't know who is JYJ, it is a korean  boy  group)
First look inside, the serum is clear and not thick. The mask is sufficiently wet and there is not excess puddle of serum in the packet.
Clear serum
The first thing I noticed when I put on the mask is the scent. It smells great...a mix of flora and fruity scent. Probably comes from the witch hazel and orange extract in the serum. Witch hazel can reduce blemishes as well as inflammation of pimples!
Skin doesn't feel sticky at all after using the mask. In fact, my skin felt more relaxed. I checked out my skin the next day to see if there is any improvements. My pimple shrink-ed and blemishes on my face seems a little lighter. There is no oily after-effect too. However, I don't think it made my overall skin whiter. Haha.
I'll give the mask 4.5 out of 5.
It's unfortunate that all Nature Republic outlets have closed down in Singapore. WHY???? I really like their products. So for those who want to try out this 'dream' mask you can get it online for a fairly affordable price.

Review: Faceshop Raspberry Roots Depuffing Eye Gel

I recently bought Faceshop Raspberry Roots Depuffing Eye Gel. It cost me around S$29 (which is quite cheap for a eye gel/cream). It comes in a cute white and pinkish red tube.

Thefaceshop Raspberry Depuffing Eye Gel
 I was actually looking for affordable eye cream that can reduce my eyebag and dark circles if I were to sleep late. It was easy to use because the tube allow you to squeeze tiny amount of eye gel and apply it under your eye. I would recommend that eye cream/gel user should dab the cream/gel lightly using your ring finger (as the skin under your eye it delicate and you would not want to worsen you eye bag or dark circles).

Review: NuTeen Sleeping Mask

NuTeen Tub

I'm on the roll today haha! Going to write a review on NuTeen Acne & Pimples Away Sleeping Mask. Bought this at Watsons after the salesperson introduced it to me. I was actually looking for NuTeen pimple cream, but it was currently out of stock during that time. Have been using it for months. So, I decided to post a review about it. As you can see from the picture above, the sleeping mask comes in a tub form and the back of the tub is direction on how to use it.

Description at the back.

The sleeping mask is in cream form. So, basically you have to use a stick or your finger to take some of the substance and apply it onto your face evenly before going to sleep. The cream is slightly translucent and greenish white. It has a distinctive smell that most NuTeen skin products have (you will recognize the smell if you have used NuTeen products before). I don't have much opinion about the smell. I neither like it nor dislike it.

Consistency of the cream

As you can see, there not much cream left inside the tub because I have been using it for a few months.

What I like about this product is that it gives a very cooling sensation on skin after applying it onto my face. It does not require you to keep it in refrigerator to provide you with the cooling effect. It kind of relaxes you skin. After using it several times, I can actually see redness of my acne reduced and it dry up some of my small pimples. According to the salesperson, the sleeping mask can actually treat your acne or pimple. However, I sincerely feel that the sleeping mask is only effective on small acne/pimple.
If you're looking for sleeping mask that relaxes and cool down you skin, I would recommend you this sleeping mask. But, it may not be a good product for those looking for treatment for you acne prone skin. I will rate this product 3.5/5.

Review: MJCARE Mung-Bean Essence Mask

I've always like to put on facial mask. Its relaxing and does help in improving my complexion. I have to do it more frequently nowadays since stress from university has taken a toll on my skin. I would need to spend lots of money if I were to use brand-name facial mask too often. So I've decided to try on MJCARE Mung-Bean Essence Mask which only cost me S$0.49. Super Cheap!

MJCARE Mung-Bean Essence Mask
Thick essence

Instructions at the back

For those who live in tropical region remember to put it in the fridge before use for an extra refreshing effect!
 As shown the essence is thick, so your face will feel a little sticky after use. For those who doesn't like that I advice you to avoid using it. My face also feels a little uncomfortable and itches a little. Maybe because of the material of the mask. According to the packanging, the mask it supposed to purify, moisturize and brighten your skin. After trying on the mask, I realize it also helps in drying pimples/acne.

Overall I will rate it 3.5 out of 5. I'll say the mask is alright for the price. I'm okay with the stickyness. However, I do not like how my skin feels uneasy while having it on.

I will post more reviews on MJCARE facial mask soon. Do leave comments if you have any questions.

And I know I'm a day late but HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR PEOPLE!!

Review: Za True White Day Protector

Firstly, I really like Za products as it seems to fit my skin type. I've been using Za face wash for years and I really like it. I was actually looking for a sunscreen to protect my skin from sun. Sunscreen is definitely important especially for those living in tropical weather like Singapore. As such, I decided to tryout Za True White Day Protector with SPF 26.

It comes in a cute white tube with pink words imprint on it. As you can see this line comes with Vitamin C and E. Vitamin E is known for its good properties that blocks skin from redness caused by the sun plus it is a good source of anti-oxidant. As for Vitamin C, it gives whitening effect on the skin.

What I like about this product is that the cream is light and have great consistency. I don't need need a huge amount of it to cover up my face. I only need a few dots. 
It also gives a white matte effect on my skin. It makes my skin looks whiter and smooth.

It feels nice on the skin right after I applied it on my face. However, since i have a combination skin type, the sunscreen can be quite drying for certain parts of my face (esp. around my mouth and eye brows) depending on the weather. Whereas, during humid weather condition, it can be really oily and I can feel like something is covering my face (esp. around the T-zone area). It was really uncomfortable.

 If you have combination skin like mine, I would not recommend to use this products. However, you can still purchase this product and directly try it out since skin care products react differently to different skin conditions. :) You can leave comments, if you have any questions to ask me!
