All Clean Balm

01/30/2017

This Leaders insolution coconut water mask ac and pore care is my second time with a biocellulose mask and it's texture has really grown on me.

It is made with natural fermented coconut juice and contains witch hazel and eucalyptus leaf extract.

I like this mask sheet a lot, it fits really well and really sticks to my face and feels really soothing. There's lots of essence but no dripping, It smells sweet like rum and leaves my face moisturised and soft like I've really pampered my skin. 

This is a very mild exfoliating gel that smells like apple juice... yum... unlike my missha peeling gel this has a smoother texture.

I apply on clean dry face and leave for a few minutes then rub gently, the product then balls up and serves as a gentle scrub... sometimes the balled up product is clear and sometimes it's darker so I like to think it's taken off some dirt or dead skin ...I'm really not sure but it's mild exfoliation and my skin feels smooth and looks clearer after. I use this twice a week to keep my skin looking clear and so far I've never had a problem with over exfoliation.

This is a nice mist that contains snail mucin. It sprays a fine mist and it smells sweat infact I suspect it attracts flies on hot days. I find it a little bit sticky also, it moisturises a little bit but I didn't find it to be refreshing so I use it to set my makeup for a dewy finish, I've discovered that's the best use for it. Overall it's an ok product, doesn't really do much but won't break the bank and it comes in a big aerosol can which is not convenient to carry around but lasts a long time.

Product information says it contains peppermint oil, pearl powder, silk powder and cucumber extract. It is an off putting thick brown serum that smells citrusy and herbally... quite a nice smell I think. it's meant to be for oily T-zone and nose but i only apply it on my nose and the area beside my nose. i have noticed that my nose is less shiny during the day but what excites me more is that the huge pores that beside my nose are less visible. Now I've read that pore size cannot magically open and close so I'm surprised that this has made them less visible. I think this a definite must try for people with oily t-zone or large pores.

This cleanser has rich creamy texture that foams nicely into a rich creamy lather that makes washing your face an enjoyable experience. 

It contains extracts of corn, chamomile, green tea, papaya, potatoe and red ginseng and also natural oils and kaolin gives it a smooth creamy texture and also a lovely citrusy/herbal scent. There's also very fine herbal bits that don't do much exfoliation but come together to make this face wash a joy to use.

This cleanser does not leave my face feeling tight or dry instead my face looks brighter and feels soft and smooth after using this.

I've never tried a 3D mask so this was one I was looking forward to. This mask contains grain extracts like Mung beans extract, rice extract, and soybean extract to make skin elastic and moisturised.

This is possibly the worst fitting mask I've ever used, I couldn't figure out how to unfold it and ended up ripping it. It just would not stay flat due to the shape, it had a noticeable fragrance that wasn't unpleasant but bordered on heavy. The fabric was soaked in essence and didn't drip on my chest which was good, it was slightly cooling but I kept getting distracted by how uncomfortable the thick material felt against my face so I kept it on for only 20 mins... when I took it off it was still damp and with a little patting as instructed on the pack the essence absorbed and left a slightly tacky finish that disappeared after some minutes. At that point I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised to see my skin looked slightly brighter and moisturised. 

This mask was provided to me by amabie as part of their absweethearts programme in exchange for my honest review.

Like most taiwanese masks this mask material is very thin and drenched in essence, the essence smells deliciously like grape fruit juice... yum. ingredients include grape fruit extract, niacinamide and aloe vera extract.

The mask is a bit on the small side but it lasts almost an hour and when i take it off my face is ghostly white, smooth and hydrated with a matte but not tacky finish. After a few minutes the ghostly paleness reduces to matte bright finish i think people with oily skin would really enjoy this for oil control.

This is a very thin mask that comes with plastic backing so its easy to apply but because it"s very thin can rip easily so you have to be extra careful.

Note able ingredients include aloe leaf juice, citrus leaf extract, pineapple fruit extract, hydrolized yeast protein, panax ginseng root extract and apple fruit extract.

There's a lot of essence left in the packet and the sheet is dripping with essence also. this mask lasts up to an hour, its extremely cooling and smells nice. After taking it off my dull skin looks brighter and wonderfully hydrated.

This is a hydro gel lip mask that's supposed to reduce fine lines around the lips, plump and moisturise the lips. Noteable ingredients include jasmine extract, fig fruit extract, royal jelly extract, honey extract and niacinamide.

It's a light pink color and smells sweet, and the texture is like a hydro gel face mask. it feels cool and soothing when placed on the lips and its wide enough to cover the lips and surrounding area. The fit is great and its easy to apply, it was snug with no air bubbles. I left in on for one hour and it was still moist when i took it off.

I used this because the weather is dry now and my lips were feeling dry and when i took it off my lips felt nourished and moisturised, they did not look more plump though. i couldn't talk while it was on and don't make the mistake of licking your lips immediately after as it tastes horrible. i was happy with the mask as it's cheap and there's lots of flavours to choose from.

 

This line of tosowoong masks smell really good and this is no exception. this mask has a delicious honey smell that lingers while the mask is on and it makes using this mask such a pleasant experience.

The sheet fabric is very thick and not very soft and there's permanent indentation where the fabric was folded which prevents it from staying completely flat on my face. There's lots of essence though, enough to re hydrate the mask or use on other areas of the body. after taking off my skin looks plump, soft, soothed and hydrated. This is a solid affordable mask and I've bought it several times.

This was a very thin silk mask sheet that comes with two plastic backings, its drenched in essence but not drippy. The fit is good and there's no obvious scent, it dries quicker than most masks though so i only had it on for 20 mins. my face felt hydrated and there was a little brightening too. It left my face smooth with no stickiness. i would use this again it' a good everyday mask.

This is a bio cellulose mask with Coconut water and squalane. This is the first bio cellulose mask i've used and at first I was weirded out because it's a rubbery texture that was a bit difficult to unfold and position well on my face, but after a few minutes my body temperature activated the fabric and it moulded very nicely to my face and the fit ended up being perfect.

Fresh out the packet it smells sweet and surprisingly cooling despite the fact that it wasn't dripping in essence. I had this on for almost an hour before it started feeling a little to tight because the fabric was shrinking. The result was a bit under whelming my face looked and felt moisturised and a little to greasy. i did enjoy the bio cellulose material though and i will be trying other masks from this line.

This face wash claims to give you clear problem free skin, formulated with Neem and Tumeric.

 

Its a green gel texture with a light fresh fragrance, I find this texture to be very cooling and soothing it doesn't foam too much since it says on the tube there's no SLES in the product. I couldn't verify the PH but the first thing I noticed after washing my face was the lack of tightness, my face felt very clean and soft without that tightness you get when a cleanser is too harsh and stripping, and every time I wash my face with it, my face feels smooth and looks clearer.

 

I couldn't verify the acne fighting claim because I don't have acne but my sister does so I got her to use this with me. she has oily acne prone skin and right off she fell in love with this cleanser. she says it makes her skin soft and its not drying and she loves the smell and texture. After two weeks of testing this product without using anything else except moisturiser her acne has significantly reduced there's the odd two or three but they're not all over her face like before and her face looks clearer. we will definitely repurchase this cleanser.

Well this mask was fun... The illustrations on these masks though 😂 really funny. So for 30 minutes i morphed into a badass super hero babe 😐I've been noticing my under eye area lately so it was nice to use a mask that targets the area. The fabric was very soft with lots of essence but not drippy. It was very cooling and when I took it off the area looked brighter than the lower half of my face and felt hydrated, i love the bat man shaped sheet design and took lots of selfies with it. i've repurchased and gifted it out and everybody loves it. 

this mask was not as jelly textured as the Annie's way mask it was more of a thick gel. i apply a thick layer and leave on for thirty minutes. i usually leave it in the fridge so that when i put it on its feels very cool for a few minutes. this is also difficult to wash off so its easier to use a spatula to scrape it off first before washing. there is a little bit of brightening and a little soothing but nothing exciting. when you buy a box it still comes in satchets which is a bit inconvenient as i usually cant use up one satchet at once and im also  not crazy about the scraping with a spatula. 

This mask was as with all my scheming masks was drenched in essence. i like that the eye hole was small so that my under eye got some TLC also. it was a thin fabric and the fit was perfect for my face.

Right out the packet you notice the mentholated smell and when you put it on there's an intense cooling, minty, tingling sensation that to be honest might be too much for some people but i really liked, also i think some one suffering from a breakout or after a long hot day might enjoy this mask. when i took it off my face was so smooth, matte and soothed. i would definitely repurchase this one

This mask is  thick, black and glossy and has a faint fragrance. you get it on ebay for less than five dollars. apply a thick layer and let it dry. i apply it all over my face and its slightly cooling as it dries, it doesn't take too long tp dry.

you have to peel of gently as it can be slightly painful and because it also pulls out the soft baby hairs on the face. its also good for peeling off any dry flakes. but the pain is worth it because you can see the hairs and other gunk on the black strip that has been pulled out of the pores. and my face does feel smoother and looks clearer espcially my nose. i do this only once a week though so as not to irritate my skin. this will be useful for people with lots of sebacious filaments on their nose. i would definitely re pupurchase this

This comes in a pretty bottle with a golden rose flower design on it, the ingredient list is pretty short and like most first treatment essence has galactomyces filterate as the main ingredient (94%) other ingredients include niacinamide, glycerine, grapefruit seed extract, rose water and adenosine.

This is very watery and the dispensing hole is a bit too wide so i always end up splashing out too much. i also expected it to smell yeasty or atleast a bit rosy but it doesn't which makes me wonder about the concentration of the above mentioned ingredients. instead it smells faintly chemically or like some sort of mild solvent.

its not a bad essence though as it absorbs within seconds to leave the skin smooth and hydrated. my subsequent toner also absorbs easily after this. The only thing this has done for me is provide initial hydration after cleansing and nothing more. its an ok product but i would not re purchase it.

This is my first oil cleanser which I got sample satchets of and got to test a couple of times.

I apply a few drops on dry face and massage gently, in the mornings I notice it balls up products I've put on the night before and by the time I'm done massaging there's so much balled up product it's really quite satisfying and hopefully part of that gunk is from my pores too.

it has a pleasant fragrance... that light perfumey smell i associate with innisfree products. I hardly wear makeup and hardly any water proof ones and I find this this is ok for taking them off and also dissolving my sunscreen. It's really light and emulsifies too but I use a second cleanser as follow up. I do think that my skins feels softer and looks clearer after using this oil cleanser.

This is an ampoule that is supposed to shorten your routine by serving as toner, essence and moisturiser. It features snail secretion filterate, glycerin, niacinamide, butylene glycol, adenosine, aloe Vera leaf extract and green tea extract.

It claims to enhance skin whitening, wrinkle care, skin firming, and moisturising. Codsna analysis shows some ingredients to be acne triggers.

It comes in a 250 ml tub and seriously this thing is huge! There's a spatula which is handy for scooping up product. It's a slightly viscous transparent texture not as sticky as the cosrx snail essence. It's quite heavily perfumed which I'm not crazy about.

i have used this for quite some time now, I've used it on my face, I mixed some with my body cream, face cream, used it for modelling masking and decanted some for family members and there's still quite a bit of product left so it's definitely good value for money.

But other than moisturising I see no proof to support the whitening or firming claims. I don't have wrinkles yet so can't confirm the wrinkle care claims either and i don't think I will repurchase because the heavy fragrance  really bothers me. 

 

My scheming snail essence hydrating mask is the first mask by my scheming that's dissapointing. The essence was very watery it dripped all over 👎🏾, the fabric was really thin👍🏾 but didn't hold much essence so i put it on and poured the essence on my face lol. Nose flap was too long so i folded it because I didn't want to suffocate and when I took it off there was no discernible difference and a slightly tacky feel on my face. I did not enjoy this mask.

This mask has a viscous clear essence and becomes gel like when it's been in the fridge. The sheet material is a thin mesh like fabric and the fit is great. It has a perfumey smell that lingers. I use this mask for 40 mins and it's intensely cooling/tingly almost to an uncomfortable degree and after a while it starts feeling a bit clammy, I don't find this mask to be refreshing.

when I take it off I don't have to pat because there is no left over essence on my face,  I like to think evertything sank into my skin. My face feels hydrated and moisturised without being oily or sticky and there's noticeable brightening and soothing. When I wake up in the morning my complexion is still even and clear. I've used a pack of ten and the results have been consistent.

This foot mask has instructions and was pretty straight forward to use. It came with two socks/booties already pre soaked with essence, i slipped them on and left for an hour. I like that there was a flap to secure it so that I could relax without fear that some of the essence would leak. The essence felt very soothing on my feet and when I took it off and washed, my feet felt very refreshed. 

 

It took about 3 days for my feet to start peeling but once it started they're was so much shedding I had to wear socks to prevent a trail of dead skin following me about. I tend to have dark skin on my feet so I really like that even the top of my feet shed at the end of seven days to reveal lighter skin on top and smoother softer skin on the soles of my feet. I would definitely reepurchase this or try other brands. 

In addition to lavender extract other noteable ingredients are chamomile extract, algae extract, collagen, and aloe barbadensis.

This mask fit really well the eye holes were tiny so my under eye got some loving too. it was drenched in essence, thick comfy fabric, felt so soothing but sadly it didn't smell like lavender 🙁

 

I took it off after about 40 mins my and my skin felt so soothed and hydrated and noticeably brighter. Another good one from my scheming 😍 

This is a black mask that's supposed to absorb excess oil and prevent acne. The fabric was soft and fit well, It was extremely cooling, smelled like tea trea and and lasted up to an hour.

Afterwards there was a little bit  of brightening and skin felt soothed i was expecting the blemish I had to dry up by next morning but it hadn't. also after a few mins of taking it off, when i touched my face i could feel the product balling up. It was a pleasant mask  although the snail one from Naruko does a better job in my opinion 😊 

This is the only peeling gel I've ever used so I don't have any comparisons but it's a good sized bottle and it has lasted a long time because I only use it sometimes once a week. i apply on clean dry face and leave for a few minutes then rub gently, the product then balls up and serves as a scrub... sometimes the balled up product is clear and sometimes it's darker so I like to think it's taken off some dirt or dead skin ...I'm really not sure but it's mild exfoliation and my skin feels smooth after. 

This was the first treatment essence I used. I splash a generous amount in my palms and pat it on. The good part is it lasts a very long time and provides hydration. Unfortunately I haven't missed it or repurchased because I didn't see any difference in my skin. I didn't get the fte glow people rave about and didn't see any other visible benefits from using this.

I've been using this for months now and there's definitely been a significant reduction on the amount of breakouts I get. I do get the occasional break out but they disappear quicker than they used to. It's also quite hydrating and absorbs easily. I will definitely keep this in my routine and keep using a couple of times a week.

This is a great sleeping pack that I reach for most nights. It has a light fresh smell and it's really light weight texture. A little goes a long way, it has tiny beads that dissolve once you massage it on to your skin.  

Noteable ingredients include green tea extract, niacinamide, orchid extract, tangerine peel extract, and grapefruit extract. 

 

After applying it you can really feel how much softer and moisturized the skin is. And in the morning the skin is still soft and brighter. 

This mask Contains white clay and chrysanthemum extract. It's a gorgeous creamy texture unlike any clay mask I've ever used. It had a subtle soapy/herbal scent that made me want to keep sniffing it.

 

it was extremely gentle and soothing and extremely light weight so much so that I almost forgot I had it on my face. It didn't harden or constrict on my face which was great and washing it off was extremely easy. Afterwards my face didn't feel dry instead it felt nourised and my skin was bouncy and clearer. I didn't see any whitening as the mask claims but I'm ok with that because this mask is just so nice.

This is a first treatment essence used as the first step after cleansing.  It's main ingredient is fermented whole lotus flower and other notable ingredients are niacinamide, saccromyces ferment and surprisingly lots of alcohol...

It has a light flowery smell that doesn't linger, It's a watery formula thats slightly thicker than water but absorbs quickly without any stickiness to leave the skin feeling hydrated and soft. It's not a mind blowing product but it does an ok job and I find myself reaching for it quite often especially on hot afternoons as it is also quite cooling.

This mask had the thick, soft and comfortable sheet fabric I associate with this line of masks. It fit well except for the eye holes that were to large, and although it was drenched in essence it didn't stick to my face for too long. It had a generic smell and slightly thick, syrupy transparent essence.

 

Notable ingredients include potato pulp extract, sodium hyaluronate, rose water, witch hazel extract, natto gum and allantoin.

 

i had this mask on for 30 mins before it started to feel heavy and a bit uncomfortable. When I took it off, it took a bit of patting for the essence to sink in. There was a little brightening and it left a slight sticky finish that dissapeared after I used an emulsion. I think the results of this   mask was more notable the morning after though when I woke up to smooth even skin. This is a nice mask for everyday use.

 

This mask was provided to me for free for review purposes by amabie as part of their ABsweetherts program. This review is based on my personal experience and all opinions expressed are my own

This is one of my favourite sleeping masks. It's a clear light weight jelly texture that smells soothingly minty. It absorbs fast and feels very soothing, It calms down any break outs I have and stops them from progressing, and I wake up to clear non greasy skin. My sister is acne prone also and absolutely loves this for blemish control and oil control.

I really like this mask. It has an impressive ingredients list of brightening moisturizing and healing ingredients.

 

I think the package is unnecessarily big though but very easy to rip open, the sheet is protected by an orange backing which is good because it is such a weird fabric... it's very thin and fragile and can be easily stretched out of shape, the fit is awful but because it's drencehed in lots of essence and also because of the texture of the material it sticks really nicely and after a few minutes moulds completely to the face, it feels almost like a very thin bio cellulose mask but even softer and more comfortable.

 

The smell of the thin milky essence is divine, a bit citrusy and fresh. And feels very cooling and refreshing on the face. The mask lasts more than 40 mins before parts of it starts to dry out. When i took off my skin appeared brighter because it was so glowy and moisturized, I really liked that it wasn't sticky, I only applied a light emulsion after and I kept touching my skin because it was so bouncy and soft and the results lasted well into the next day. This is a fantastic mask in my opinion.

This is a hydrogel mask and the best mask that has ever touched my face. It's made from fermented ingredients and smells AMAZING! The hydrogel sheet is extremely thin and comfortable and unbelievably cooling. There's extra essence left in the pack to pat onto your face and after 30 mins my face is the softest and smoothest it has ever been. My skin is soothed and calmed and glowy. It expires quickly it has a short shelf life and can be hard to get hold of because it sells out fast but it is so worth the hassle because this mask is amazing! Also it's quiet affordable for such a great hydrogel mask

To be honest there's nothing really exciting about a toner other than hydration. But I absolutely love this little bottle of joy. It's made with fermented flowers and It smells refreshingly like lemon grass. It's watery but hydrates and moisturises really well you can immediately see how well skin is moisturised upon application. It's a bit pricey though but works well for my normal/combination skin.

This mask fabric was a light brown colour and really soft and thin, the fit was great and eye holes were small so that it covered my under eye area. It didn't smell medicinal though instead it smelled faintly perfumey which is unfortunate as I like medicinal herbal scents. My skin is left soft and bouncy but a little to oily for my liking. I think this mask would be great for dry skin types though.

Ingredients for this mask include galactomyces ferment filterate, honey extract and propolis extract. The fabric is very thin and absolutely drenched in essence, because it's so thin though i wish it comes with plastic backings to help with application, it's really hard to open the sheet and apply and so I ripped it. You also have to be careful so it doesn't stretch out and loose its shape by the way the fit is not so great. But the good thing is it really adheres to the face so that compensates for the awful fit. I used this mask for more than an hour and when I took it off it still hadn't dried. And my face felt so hydrated and cool and my skin really was bouncy. I definitely need more of this mask

I think the packaging is so adorable and it smells so strongly of ginseng I absolutely love the smell of ginseng. This mask left my face really sticky though and it was so uncomfortable I had to wash it off. But even after washing off my face felt really smooth  and soft but I did not enjoy the stickiness

This mask is slimey and I was sad to discover it's not snail goo but it's as a result of algin but I do enjoy the skincaretainmet. It smells very strong... to me it smells a bit sulphuric, not unpleasant to me but might be for some people. The sheet material is thick but it fits me ok, I think because it's so think it doesn't adhere well to my chin. There's very intense tingling while it's on which i quiet like maybe because I usually use this mask when I have a breakout or when i feel a pimple forming so it feels like it's actually working on them. When I take it off my face is ghost white and extremely matte... not dry though just matte and my face feels so smooth and soothed. I love this mask I give it four stars not five because of the fit and thickeners of the fabric.

I really wanted to like this overnight mask after so many positive reviews but to me it's too heavy and sticky and just forms an unpleasant film on my face. I really dislike the smell I've read that it doesn't have any smell but to me it does, I'm just not sure what the smell reminds me of. I've tried using it as a wash off mask also but still find it to be unpleasant and I see no brightening or softening effect whether as overnight mask or wash off mask. 

I buy this in sample satches as this is way cheaper than buying the bottle... it's quite pricey but if i ever get the chance I will splurge on a bottle because this product is awesome. It smells amazing and once applied absorbs super fast. Skin feels smooth and soft and no stickiness. What I love about this the most is the way my skin looks so healthy and glowy. I haven't found a product that gives a glow like this I think this is a must for anyone that can afford it

This mask is not for hot weather or oily skin. First time I used this mask I thought it was so heavy, it made my face really oily and I broke out the next day. But fast forward a few months, the weather is now colder and drier and my skins needs have changed. Even though I don't like the smell, I find the creamy texture really soothing I folded the eye flaps under my eye and used as an eye patch. My skin felt really nourished, looked pearly and actually glowed. My skin looked amazing well into the next day.

This is an average sleeping pack. It smells really perfumey and some people might not like that. The texture is not too thick and it's not greasy either so it absorbs quickly and doesn't make my face greasy. I do like that it's cool when it goes on and feels quiet soothing. My face looks brighter when I wash it off the next morning.

This makes my nose smooth but I never see any blackheads on the strip when I take it off, and pulling it off is very unpleasant and makes me sneeze. But my sister loves it though so I guess it depends on the individual...

I adore this mask. I love the fit, I love how thin the fabric is and it fits my face perfectly. I absolutely love the smell and the fact I can smell it the duration of the mask session. It's a great sensory experience and I find it very soothing. There's left over essence to apply on other parts of my body. I use it for an hour. When I take it off my face is slightly sticky but not unpleasant and the stickiness dissapears after a while. I love it so much I bought two packs so I don't run out.

I applied a thick layer and left it on for thirty mins and it was extremely cooling. This would be great to use after a day in the sun as it really soothes the skin. Afterwards my face is a little bit brighter and very soft. It's a little hard to wash off even after scraping with a spatula. What I really disliked was the process of scraping my face with a spatula, I ended up with a few red patches on my face so people with sensitive skin should probably just wipe it off then wash off. I would probably repurchase this or try other versions as I enjoyed the cooling effect.

 

i received this mask free from amabie as part of their ABsweethearts programme in exchange for my honest review. This review is based on my experience and opinions expressed are mine.

I bought a pack of these and used it once and it didn't make much of an impression other than the fact it was really greasy. So imagine my surprise when I used it a second time and fell in love with it. I put it in the fridge before use so everything was really soothing.

 

It's a three step mask with essence, mask, and eye cream. The essence is thick and gel like and soothing and there was a lot. The mask fabric was gauze like but extremely soft and thin and it was big so it curved under my chin and covered my forehead, and the mask essence was thick almost jelly like also and was cool on my face. The eye cream smelled like jasmine and I used it 2 more times. 

This lasted more than an hour and when I took it was my face was shinning and looked like a giant grease ball and was slightly sticky. The stickiness dissapeared but the greasiness remained I used an emulsion after and was happy to see that the product didn't pile up. What really impressed me was how soft and smooth and calm my face was. I kept touching my face while I was sleeping and when I was up my face was still soft and glowy. I give this five stars because despite the unpleasant oiliness results were pretty fantastic . 

 

This black mask was extremely soft like suede and fit my face really well. The essence was thin and milky and had that yeasty/barley smell i associate with raw Job's tears and I absolutely love. It was extremely cooling almost tingly. I left this mask on for an hour and when I took it off my face was very pale and felt really soothed soft and matte. When I woke up the next morning my face was still very bright. I love this mask

Jelly fish is such a weird ingredient for skin care which is why I had to try this mask. It's a soft black fabric that fit well, the smell was generic, it stayed damp for about forty mins and when I took it off my face was ghostly white and matte which was surprising for a moisturising mask. But my skin did feel hydrated and soothed and when i woke up the next morning my skin was still bright. I really like this mask

Noteable ingredients for this mask include Niacinamide, royal jelly extract and aloe barbadensis. It's a thick soft fabric that fit well but the eye holes were a bit too wide, and clear jelly like essence, there was so much extra essence that I rubbed on my chest arms and hands. This mask is extremely soothing it lasted more than an hour and when I took it off my face was soft and soothed. My only problem as with the brightening one is the stickiness but it dissapeared after I used face cream. I woke up the next morning to dried up blemishes very soft and bright skin.

This mask is absolutely drenched in a jelly like essence. I use some of the excess essence to prep my face before placing the sheet on my face and I can leave it on for upto an hour. The fabric is really soft and fits well and it smells really lovely... like oranges. It does feel sticky afterwards, and even after ten minutes and much patting it still feels sticky. The stickiness reduces after I use some face cream though. This mask is really soothing and my skin feels soft, bouncy and really hydrated. And the next morning my skin looks glorious. My only problem is the stickiness but i really enjoy this mask.

This comes in a sturdy basic white transparent bottle with a stopper that's angled so you have better control on the amount of product that is dispensed. The essence inside is thin and watery and slightly oily and slippery with no discernible scent. 

 

The star ingredients are 97% galactomyces ferment filterate and 2% Niacinamide. I've used this for six weeks now with one week interval. I have normal skin so I only use 4 drops after my toner, I use it morning and night and I can use it even on hot days because it's very light weight, doesn't feel oily or sticky. It goes on smoothly and sinks in quickly after a few pats and instantly my skin feels softer, hydrated and smoother. The liquid feels slippery but it doesn't feel oily on skin... I'm assuming the sodium hyaluronate might have something to do with this as the ingredient list doesn't mention any oil.

 

Over the course of a few weeks I've noticed that my skin has stopped looking dull, feels softer and smoother and I wake up every morning to bright glowing skin. My skin doesn't dry after washing even when I forget to moisturise, and the acne scars don't darken as much as they used too. I didn't use this for a week and I noticed that my skin looked very dull during the break. I think this essence has played a major role in repairing my skin my only problem with it is it has a short shelf life... you should only keep it for six months after opening. I will definitely repurchase this😊

This comes in a 50 ML sturdy glass bottle. The bottle is very pretty with a lovely purple and pink colour and a glass dropper that reaches all the way to the bottom making it easy to reach product even when it's almost finished. I was able to reach every last drop.  The product is a yellowish colour that's slightly viscous and I think smells vaguely like glue.

 

It has a long and impressive ingredients list such as bifida ferment, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate and so on. It glides on very smoothly because the liquid is slippery and absorbs super fast, at first it feels tacky but that dissapears quickly. I've used this on and off for almost a year so this lasts a long time.

 

But unfortunately even though there's isn't supposed to be any triggers I still get pimples that appear on my cheek while I'm using it and they stop appearing when I stop using this. This has happened several times So despite the fact that I do see some brightening when using this which tells me the serum is doing what it's supposed to do I have to stop using it as it breaks me out and has no noticeable effect on subsequent scars.  Other than a little brightening I see no other note able results from Using this. 

I bought this out of curiosity... as that was the first time i had heard of pressed serum. Pressed serum is a combination of serum and moisturiser the selling point being it's supposed to shorten your routine.

 

It's made up of 60 percent chaga mushrooms and the rest is fermented oils. It's a weird, thick, brown coloured gelatinous/custardy serum/cream.  That comes with a spatula which makes it easier to scoop. I scoop a pea sized amount and rub on and it's surprising how smoothly it glides on and it feels very cool on my face. It leaves my face feeling hydrated and cool and no stickiness and I can actually use this in the afternoon. Most people say it's odourless but to me it has a light fresh smell that I like.

 

This is quite a pricey product and I've used it for about two months with no discernible effect on my skin. it definitely doesn't feel firmer as the product claims and other than cooling upon application I see no other results so I would not repurchase. Also I like applying serum and face cream separately. Although I can see how this would be appealing for travelling to avoid spilling or carrying multiple products.

This is my least favourite Naruko mask. The sheet material is thick but soft and it fits my face ok. It has that signature raw Job's tears smell, i think it smells like yeast i quite like the smell. I bought a pack of ten and used it enough times to form a strong opinion and that opinion is that this mask does not do what it claims to do. It does not   Brighten and it does not minimise pores.

This like most Korean toners is a hydrating toner it's supposed to hydrate your skin and prep it for the next step of your skincare routine and help subsequent products absorb faster.

 

The softfull booskin toner is meant for oily/combination skin. It's a thin milky watery liquid. You shake the bottle to dispense a few drops then pat it in, it absorbs fast and leaves a satiny soft finish. Ingredients include rose of Jericho, witch hazel extract, cotton extract and artichoke leaf.

 

The bottle is huge I've been using it for 7 months now and I've still got quite a bit of product in the bottle. The smell might bother some people but personally I love it, it's a femenine, soft flowery smell that lingers and I find very soothing. 

I'm currently on my third tube of this cleanser. I love that it's low ph, it cleans amazingly well and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. It's a solid cleanser which makes it really convenient for travel. It contains Rose oil, rose petals and fermented rose ingredients.

 

Have I mentioned the smell? Gosh this cleanser smells so gorgeous like I'm washing my face with actual roses, and there's tiny bits of rose petals in the stick! My preferred method of use is to wet my face and rub the stick on my face,then lather using my hands. This stick lasts me about 3 months and it's a bit pricey but in my opinion it's well worth the money to wash my face with roses 😊

This mask smells like real cucumber! And I could smell it the whole time I had it on. I found the smell so soothing, the sheet was very thick but so soft almost like thick soft tissue so it was very comfortable and didn't scratch my face. The fit was great also it hugged my face which was surprising for such a thick material but the eye holes were a bit too wide for my liking.

Notable ingredients include cucumber extract, sodium hyaluronate, rose water, hydrolysed collagen, witch hazel, natto gum and allantoin. These are ingredients known to hydrate, sooth, and nourish. 

After reading the ingredient list I was curious to see how it performs and it lived up to my expectations. I had it on for 40 mins and it was very cooling like the feeling of putting raw cucumber on my face and it was still damp when I took it off, my face was brighter and hydrated and felt soothed and cooled. The essence didn't sink in immediately so I patted it and it left a sticky finish that dissapeared after I rubbed my night cream.  The brighteness disappeared though after a few minutes but the next morning when I woke up my skin looked so even and smooth and the blemish on my chin had dried up. So I give this mask 5 stars for delivering on results and sustaining those results hours later.

This mask is quite pricey so I bought the sample packs. But after using it I won't mind buying a full sized one becuse this mask is amazing. I'm always slow applying it though and the foam forms faster than I can apply, I personally love the bubbles and the pleasant tingling it feels like a soft white cloud. This product is not just gimmicks though because it works amazingly well. After washing off my face looks so bright,soft and smooth. It also washes off much easier than the elizavecca bubble mask and less messy.

This is a thick honey coloured peel off mask that smells gorgeously of ginseng. I absolutely love ginseng and the smell of sulwhasoo products. It's very cooling when applied and dries fast so beware and apply quickly!

 

At first I couldn't see any effect and thought this product was a dud. But I figured out you need to apply a thick layer. I leave it on for about fifteen minutes or when it's suffiently dry then peel it off. This is the most gentle peel off mask I've used and it leaves my skin moisturised and with that nice glow I've come to associate with sulwhasoo products.

This product comes in a huge 700 ML tub! The product is in a thick plastic bag which you tie up and store in the tub to keep it airtight. I mix it with water or rose water and form a thick paste to apply all over my face including my lips after applying toner and serum. You have to be careful if it's too watery it will drip all all over even your eye ( a mistake I've made once ). It's pretty easy to peel off and doesn't pull out any hairs or eyebrows. It's incredibly cooling and soothing and when I take it off my skin is brighter smoother, softer and moisturised even my lips are softer and moisturised. I give this product 5 stars for great performance and great value for money.

This creamy mask smells deliciously of fresh ginger with a hint of ginseng. It has an impressive ingredient list that includes glycerin, camellia sinesis leaf extract (green tea extract), panax ginseng root extract, licorice root extract, mulberry root extract and sodium hyaluronate to name a few. I use a tiny bit as the last step in my skincare routine. It absorbs quickly, doesn't feel heavy or sticky and feels a little bit cooling. I use it 3 times a week and I always notice the glow my skin gets well into the next day. It doesn't lighten any scars or pigmention but my skin definitely looks smoother and more radiant after use, also my under eye has been looking less dry while Im using this. This product is definitely one I won't run out of. 

This product comes in a chic heavy beautiful glass bottle, that has a pump, with a beautiful design on the cap and holds 130 ML of product. It's a light creamy emulsion that smells amazing! It's made with fermented ingredients it's free from artificial ingredients. I use two pumps and it glides on so smoothly and instantly your skin becomes softer. It also absorbs super fast and skin feels hydrated but not oily it's light enough to use as daytime lotion also on hot days. This lasts so long that it makes the price worth it.

I absolutely love this mask! The smell was un expected its smells gorgeously citrusy and fresh. The granules are too large and a bit rough though so i only use it once a week. I leave it on for about ten minutes then wash it off and my skin is very smooth and soft after

This was the first mask by sexy look I tried and I was so happy with the results I've purchased a few more since then. It's supposed to be a moisturizing mask but it left my face super bright,smooth,cooled and matte. It lasted almost an hour, It had a generic mask smell but the fabric was really soft and cushiony and the fit was perfect when I woke up the morning after using this my face was still matte and bright.

This product contains 74% snail mucin. It has a watery gel texture so for snail beginners or people that are put off by slimey texture this is a good choice. It's very thin and lightweight i use as daytime moisturizer and also as the last step in my routine after face oil. I can't say I've noticed any spectacular results from it but I leave it in the fridge and always look forward to rubbing this cool gel on my face. It's a 45 ml bottle but lasts longer than you would think and it's very cheap. I love this gel and I always have extras so I don't run out. The packaging is cute too😊

This is a perfectly good product it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Helps to keep skin hydrated but I was sad to stop using it because I discovered it was the cause of the comedones I was getting on my forehead. I stopped using it and my forehead cleared immediately. But seeing as I had an extra bottle I decided to find other uses for it so I use it on my body and it leaves my skin so silky soft and also apply on my hair and lo and behold my hair has been looking thicker and healthy! It's an excellent multi purpose product!

I find this serum to be very sticky but i can live with that becuse I've seen visible progress in my scars fading and reduction in hyper pigmentation within two weeks of use  unlike the c21.5 which didn't do any thing for my skin. It doesn't oxidize as quickly as the c21.5, it's cheaper and only tingles when there's a problem with my skin e.g over exfoliation. I use it at after cleasnsing with a low ph cleanser before my BHA. I can't attest to increase in collagen production or filling up wrinkles because I don't have any yet but this is a good serum for the price I only took off one star because of the stickiness

This mask contains arbutin, camellia leaf extract and pear extract to name just a few. I love the cute packaging and the cute character in the mask. The fabric is comfortable and the mask lasts more than 30 mins. This mask is a favourite as it always makes my skin brighter and calms any breakout I'm battling...another win for mediheal

Moisture Mask

12/16/2016

I think this is a called a 3D mask... it has a strap under the chin to hook up to the ear and another one attached to the face mask to hook up to your ear so that the mask stays in place. Although the fabric is thicker than what I'm used to, and slightly uncomfortable, it was drenched in essence, the straps secured it to my face and my neck got some pampering also which is great! It tingled though even an hour after taking it off my face was still tingling! But on the plus side my face looked so bright felt so soft and soothed and despite the tingling there was no adverse reaction

This is a very stringy product so you know it's actually snail mucin. I have to give it a few minutes for it to sink in then it gives my face a nice glow and also skin feels soft. It's also very affordable and lasts a long time I've been using two pumps everyday for six months now and I can probably use what's left for another four months. But I find it too moisturising so I only use it at night and I don't think it has helped in healing or scar reduction or preventing breakout thats why I've given it 3 stars. I will probably repurchase it again though for the skin softening and hydration benefits

This emulsion contains 7 super seeds with licorice, rice yeast extract and niacinamide as noteable ingredients. It has a refreshing light scent and thin silky texture that absorbs quickly leaving your face matte but hydrated. It's great for oily skin and a great moisturiser for hot weather. After almost two months of use I can see a difference in my skin texture and reduction in hyperpigmentation from acne scars. The only problem is that it's a bit hard to find. But this is a great product 

this is a low ph cleanser with a very affordable price tag. It cleanses really well without leaving the skin feeling too stripped or dry. I love the tea tree smell and the gel texture. I use it most mornings it doesn't foam too much which is okay by me. I will definitely repurchase this product

After reading so many great reviews I quickly got my wallet out and bought this. Yes the packaging is cute yes it smells delicious I was so ready to love this product, unfortunately after a couple of uses I gave up. It was really greasy, didn't absorb well and made me breakout. I'm waiting for the drier months though when my skin will be needing heavy moisturizers  to give it another try

Goodal waterest lasting water oil is an oil that doesn't feel like oil. It's thicker than water with "micro ionised" particles, has a faint flowery smell that doesn't linger. This product has a smooth slip and disappears completely after application without leaving any shiny finish. Noteable ingredients include niacinamide and licorice root extract. I love this oil/serum. I shake it before each use and two pumps is usually enough to deliver an instant dose of light weight hydration that leaves my skin feeling soft and calm even in hot weather. I would definitely repurchase this

This masks main ingredient is snail secretion filterte and red ginseng water. The fabric is thick with a lovely light pink colour. It holds a lot of watery easence that drips which i just rub on my neck and chest. I can't detect any smell. It feels like a soaked soft cushion hugging my face my only problem is that it's a bit short so doesn't cover my forehead. It lasts for up to forty minutes and when i take it off my face feels so cool and hydrated. The packaging is really cute I would definitely repurchase and  give out as gifts.

I use this mask when i want to de gunk my pores with a gentle clay mask. It has a jelly like consistency but foams up upon application. It comes with a spatula which makes it easy to scoop and apply. Apply and spread quickly though as the delightful bubbles form quickly! It delights the kid in me the way the bubbles tickle. It's a pain to rinse off though you will need lots of water so I usually apply it around shower time so I wash it in the shower. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. The packaging is very  cute too

As a dark skinned African woman it's very important to me for a suncreen to be light enough to wear during the hot all year weather, have high spf protection and not leave a white cast. The Biore UV Aqua rich watery essence comes in a 50g tube and has an spf rating of 50+, PA++++, a thin milky texture with faint citrus smell. It glides on smoothly, absorbs after a few seconds leaving a dewy finish, and because it doesn't leave a white cast I can wear it alone. But for those who don't like the dewy look you'll be happy to know it plays well as a base for powder and foundation. It's not water proof though so i re apply after a few hours. I really like this sunscreen but it contains alcohol and citrus extracts so those Sensitive to these ingredients might have to find something more suitable but overall this is a pleasant product to use.
