Before starting this review, I would like to say that this mask was provided to me by Amabie in exchange for an honest review. 

 

First off, I would like to say that i love the brand Neogen, and with good reason because this mask delivered on all points. I'm seriously impressed with this mask and it's results

 

Product: Neogen Sur. Medic Hydro Hyaluronic Sheet mask aims to "Intesnively nourshis and deeply penetrate to deliver mositrizing properties into dry skin, to creat a ultimately dewy appreance with high luminosity". Taken from Sheetmasks.com

 

Results: This mask was so hydrating. Like talk about the hydration properties, I need to find me a bundle of these for when the winter cold gets to my skin. They had a pleasant and light scent to them that didn't bother me at all. This lasted on my face for about 30 minutes and there was no stickiness or residue like some hydrating sheet masks I've tried. Also alot of these types of masks take a while to absorb but this guy sunk right in.The best part? It lasted the to the next day, and my skin felt nourished and hydrated even in this winter weather. My skin did also have a nice glow to it when I woke up so that's also a plus!

Cons: Honestly I can't really think of any cons. This did the job plus it helped give me a glow! Im super impressed.

 

Overall: I would absolutely repurchase this mask and it's on sale right now at sheetmasks.com for $1. So you can't go wrong for that price! I would highly recommend this to anyone with dry and dehydrated skin or those with combination dehydrated skin (me). I'm not sure how oily skin would pan out with this, but for $1, it's worth a try.   

 

 

Once again, thank you Amabie for sending this wonderful mask to me, I truly appreciate it! 

 

Before I start this review, let it be known that I recieved this mask from Amabie in excahnge for an honest review, and an honest and unbiased review you shall read! 

Alright, so I want to start this review off by saying thank you to Amabie for sending me this package to review, and I truly appreciate the opportunity!

 

Product: Purlisse Blue Lotus and White Tea Treatment Mask. Aimed to intensely moisturize, nourish and renew the skin. 

 

Results: Once I opened the mask this beautiful scent poured out, you guys its so lovely I wish I could use it as a perfume. The fit of this mask was pretty good, it fit my huge  forehead and the eye slits were wide. It also was long lasting, this stayed on my face for almost 30 (28 to be exact) minutes before it started to dry out. The essence absorbed quickly into my skin and there was no stickiness or tackiness afterwards. My skin was plump and hydrated and it lasted well throughout the night, and my skin still felt the effects throughout the next day.  I would say my skin felt better and nourished after using this mask, not so sure about the renewing part though. 

Cons: This didn't do anything noticeable for brightness. The price is also a huge con for someone like me. Just one of the these masks retails for $8.00 on the Purlisse website with a pack of four being $36. That is way to much for me as I typically spend about $1-4 on a mask (4 is pushing it, but if it's worth it, I'll bite). If you don't have an issue with the price, then I would suggest this mask to you as its a great sheet mask to have and use on one of those pick me up days, which seem to be everyday for me. 

 

Overall: Great product, amazing smell and definitely one I would repurchase if on sale or if I'm looking to splurge and treat myself.  

 

 

Once again thank you so much Amabie for sending this package to me! I hope you all find the review helpful!

 

 

 

First off, before I start this review, I would like to say that I was given this product by Amabie in exchange for an honest review;so here it is, my honest review of the PurLisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk.  This is a milky cleanser that serves as a multitasking product. It aims to cleanse, remove makeup, tone and soothe the skin by using some impressive ingredients like soy milk, whole oat and white tea. It also claims to be gentle and that it won't strip your skin of it's natural oils.

 

Product: 150ml of product that comes in a sleek tube. For all skin types and contains the ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Acrylates Copolymer, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridecyl Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polysorbate 80, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein Octenylsuccinate, Alaria Esculenta Extract, Butylene Glycol, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Nymphaea Coerulea Flower Extract, Methyl Gluceth-20, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Laureth-4, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Carbomer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Limonene, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Tagetes Minuta Flower Oil, Michelia Alba Flower Oil.

 

Unfortunately nothing up on CosDNA but for those with easily irritated skin or allergies to certain oils, this cleanser contains many flower oil extracts

 

Results: 

I really enjoy this cleanser. It's the first milky one I've ever tried, so it took a while to get used to the no-foaming. The smell is a little weird, but doesn't really linger so I don't mind. As for makeup removal, I found this to remove my simple and everyday makeup fairly well, in fact I was impressed. It got off my non-waterproof mascara and my eyebrows (my everyday makeup). However, for my heavier makeup,( for dinners or photos ) this on it's own didn't do such a great job, even with two washes. Which was fine because I have an oil based cleanser that does. This cleanser does however calm my skin and i tend to reach for it on nights and mornings when my skin is irritated or if I'm having a bad skin day. Plus there is a lot of product (150 mL). Thats the same amount as my beloved Cosrx Gel cleanser. This product also did not irritate my skin or my eye area, and did not break me out. 

 

Cons: The only cons I have about this product is that it's a tad bit too pricey for me to purchase. This can be purchased at Purlisse.com for $36.00 for a full size and $20 for a travel size at 70ml;I typically don't spend too much on cleansers ( I splurge on serums and essences)  so this is a little bit out of my range. That being said, if you could afford it, then I would recommend the product as it does what it's meant to do. However, don't expect it to take off your heavy duty liner, eye shadow, concealer, foundation, contour etc., but it's still a champ for everyday makeup in my honest opinion. 

 

Repurchase: Maybe in the future, but for now i want to try other affordable cleansers first,but I will definitely use this sparingly to try to make it last. 

 

I would like to thank Amabie for giving me the opportunity to review these products. All opinions were my own and unbiased. 

 

 

 

 

 

Today's review is on a sheet mask. Sheet Mask Saturday :) Anyways, Naruko has been a highly popular asian skincare brand that I've been dying to try, and a about 2 months ago I finally purchased my first product from them. The Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask. As the name suggests this mask is a hydrating one and boy oh boy does it deliver! I love using this in the colder months as my skin is more dry than usual, so this mask does the job. This mask has a pleasant and light rose scent and the fit is superb. They have become a staple in my skincare routine. Unfortunately I am running out. 

 

Product: A thin and well adhering sheet mask that contains active ingredients that provides deep hydration and replenishes the skin with abundant moisture to restore it to its dewy radiant glow.

 

Claims: Provides intense hydration deep into the skin, preventing dullness and giving a radiant complexion.

 

Results: After using this mask, the essence absorbed into my skin quickly and was not all that sticky. My skin felt smooth, and hydrated and overall it was an enjoyable experience. The next morning my skin looked bright and plump. I reserve these beauties for my Sunday night pampering only and boy do they really help with the relaxation and pampering. I mean it smells like roses!

I would definitely repurchase this mask. I bought mine at an Asian Supermarket while it was on sale, but the Naruko website has sales all the time! I hope this review was helpful and that if you decide to buy it,  you enjoy the mask!

 

 

This is probably one of my favourite exfoliators! It super easy to use and it doesn't strip my skin and is gentle yet effective. The scent is strong on this one, but I love the scent of it so no problems here (smells like pinesol to me, but iced tea to my sister so YMMV). 

Claims: Promotes smooth glowing skin. 

Use: I use this after my double cleanse while my face is still damp (this is important. Do not dry your face as it will be abrasive on its own. It needs a little water). The thing I love most about this product is that even those who have sensitive skin can still use it, all you have to do is add a bit more water to your mask and it shouldn't be too abrasive. I have tested this out with my younger sister who has really sensitive skin and she loves this mask. For those of you who don't have sensitive skin you can add as much or as litlle water as you please, but I would suggest you atleast dampen your face. 

Results: After use my skin feels smooth, soft and not stripped of moisture whatsoever! Over time using this product my skin is smoother and softer. Overall this product lives to its claims and has become a favourite of mine! Love this stuff 

 

 

 

 

OKAY THIS IS MY HG ITEM. Like legit HG. I will repurchase this item forever.Okay I know this may seem like I'm hyping the product up, but you guys I seriously love this stuff. I have some stubborn acne on my forehead and chin and this has tackled my acne like no ones business! I have never been more impressed by a product honestly. I use this as a treatment, so its the first thing I put on after my water based cleanser, and I usually have a wait time of about 15-20 minutes. It took about 2 weeks to see some concrete results, but I was definitely not disappointed! This is  a CLARIFYING toner, not a hydrating one, so I always make sure to follow up with one. I highly recommend this to anyone with acne prone skin who is looking for a treatment to help them battle their acne!

This is the first oil based cleanser I've ever used, and i have to say I am seriously impressed. Banila Co has many oil based cleansers but I chose this one as it was recommended for oily skin and i have combination skin, so it seemed like a perfect match, and boy was I right! At first I was super nervous about this balm potentially breaking me out, or causing my combination skin to become even oiler (worst nightmares), but no such thing happened;in fact my skin was soft, clean and felt fresh after each use.This baby got all my stubborn mascara and MATTE liquid lipstick off. I love the texture and formula of this balm, and its super easy to use. Something about working in the cleanser until I look like the Joker seems so satisfying. It has a weird non-lingering scent, but its not unpleasant (just cant put my finger on the scent). Overall I really enjoy this cleanser and would recommend it to anyone, for my sensitive skin gals I would recommend trying the Purity version as Ive heard great things about it too. I would repurchase this balm. 

I love this toner so much, I use it daily and honestly my skin feels so hydrated, supple and ready for my essence, serum or sheet mask (sometimes all if i have the time). I first received a bunch of samples of the toner, and after consistently using them and noticing the effects I immediately bought the full size version from Soko Glam. This toner live up to most of its claims : it moisturizes, soothes and cleanses anything my first cleanser missed. The only thing i can't speak for is the pH balancing, I have not tested these with strips. Overall this is just a fantastic toner for the amount you get (180 ml) and the price point. Another thing i love is the scent;doesn't linger, not to strong but it is pleasant and I find it calming honestly. Klairs is a brand that caters to sensitive skin, so I was pleased when I purchased this, because at the time, my acne prescription left my skin so sensitive to anything, but this toner did not irritate my skin. Overall will repurchase in the future and definitely recommend to all skin types. 

Hey loves! Hope your well and your skin is treating you well! Let me start off this review by saying, I personally think this should be a part of everyone's routine! This is by far the best facial cleanser I've used! My face LOVES tea tree, & the moment I opened it I could smell it in there! This left my skin soft and clean unlike most cleanser that do the cleaning it also strip the skin while they're at it! Since I've bought it, it hasn't broken me out, but inset helped me with previous breakouts! I've been using this for a few days and I can already tell it going to be a staple/HG product!
