I put it on my back because I am very sensitive to niacinamide and can't use it on my face at all. My back skin is a little more resilient and it needed an exfoliation anyway.

The mask did still burn a bit, which makes judging it a little awkward. It smelled nice (barely any scent, except a slight fruityness) and there was plenty of essence, which are both positives. And my back is less itchy now, so that's another plus. But I can't tell how much it actually hydrated my skin versus burning off the dead and dry stuff.

I'll give this a strong 7⃣/🔟 because I do think it works, just not enough to really overcome the niacinamide burn for me. I can't blame Aeria Skin for that as niacinamide is a very useful ingredient for most people.

I think it's a pretty good mask. I had a long day and didn't got a lot of sleep, so I had some obvious dark circles under my eyes. The mask reduced them a little and generally soothed the entire area it was on. It's not a miracle worker by any means, but my circles are more or less back to their usual level of darkness.

Overall, I'd give this a 8⃣/🔟. Please note that I received this product in exchange for my honest review. My opinion is not influenced by either Amabie or Aeria Skin.

Tried the CYLabs Triple Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Moisturizing Repairing Mask that I got in my @amabiebeauty AList review box. And I think I love it.

There's not quite as much essence in this mask as there is in the MBD masks, but there's still plenty. The mask itself is a lovely soft material that feels like a hug to my face. The smell is fantastic and the results are pretty great too. It's not a magic bullet, but definitely very hydrating and a little bit brightening as well.

My only complaint is that the essence isn't a little thicker to help prevent drips. And that these masks aren't readily available for purchase in all the various online shops. I think you can only get them through the company website right now.

Overall, 9⃣.5⃣/🔟. Please note: I received this product in exchange for my honest review. My opinion is my own and not influenced by either Amabie or CYLabs.

This serum is a great basic for people who need a little brightening or spot fading boost.  I use this every morning, and it's been slowly fading my sun spots and post-acne marks.  It is a low concentration of Vitamin C, so it does take a while, but it is also shelf stable, so no need to keep it in the refrigerator.

I wish I could give this a good review but I just can't.  It smells horrendous, it irritated my already sensitive skin, and it made things worse rather than better!  The essence amount was good and the mask fit well, which earned it a couple of points, but that's all I can say about it that's nice.

I really like this product.  Most chemical exfoliators don't agree with me, so it's nice to have a physical option.  I prefer to massage this into dry skin and let sit for 5-10 minutes before washing it off, but you can apply to wet skin and wash off right after massaging and still get some of the benefits.  My only complaint is that it's hard to get the grains off afterwards, so I always have to use this before a shower to make sure that it all washes off fully.

This definitely works, but it's nothing amazing.  The smell is nice, but definitely very chemical, and I find it less appealing every time I use it.  This emulsifies well, but it does tend to get really drippy when you do.  And while it removes my make up, it's a little harsh on the eye area, because I have to rub pretty hard to get the makeup there off.

This is my standard every day last step moisturizer.  It's slick and easy to apply, blends and melts in well, and hydrates.  The scent is pretty unoffensive, but may a problem if you are very sensitive.

This doesn't guarantee a flawless finish, but it does help.  It's nice and flexible, and works with pretty much anything you want to apply.  I find it a little pricey, though, and want to try some of the off-brand versions before committing to buy another BeautyBlender, just to see if the cost is just for the name.

Got this in Rebel Pink and it's pretty great.  Decent wear time (about 4 hours with eating and drinking), and it fades fairly evenly so that you don't have to worry too much about reapplying.  If you do, the colour builds and just gets stronger, so it may be worth keeping wipes with you if you'd prefer to keep it consistent.  The downside is that it's a little drying for my already dry lips, but at least it doesn't stick to any flakes or highlight them.

I got this in RD306 (Berry Plum Squeeze).  I like the colour when it's first applied, and the tint it leaves isn't too bad.  But this never really dries down to the point where it stops transferring onto everything.  If you leave it a while and then lightly wipe it off, it's pretty good, but the tint does wear off after a while.  I find that I have to apply this a few times a day to keep a consistent colour.  And it's slightly drying, so if your lips already tend to be dry (like mine), it will make you flaky, and the flakes from this colour make your lips look like they're bleeding.  So I prefer this went I'm only going to be out for a few hours and don't plan on eating/drinking, as it works wonderfully as a strong lip colour then.

The mint flavours are the best, in my opinion.  The others get 3-4 stars, mint gets 5.  All are moderately moisturizing if used regularly for a couple of days, but I can use the mint and see overnight results.  I'll sometimes even apply the mint to the skin on my nose when I've got a cold and my nose gets chapped.

As others have said, this is creamy, easy to blend out, and offers fairly good coverage.  My main complaint is that it doesn't wear particularly long unless it's set, and it creases on my undereyes pretty much instantly, meaning I have to apply it right before applying powder, and sometimes smooth it out a little afterwards.

This is the best sunscreen I've found so far.  High SPF, no real white cast, does the job, and doesn't irritate my skin too much.  It's a little oily even after being fully rubbed in, and the scent's not great,  but otherwise it's pretty great.

I'm a little disappointed in this sheet mask.  It's not bad, but it's not great either.  It's actually kind of average.  The scent is good, and the amount of essence is great, but it didn't really do much, at least from what I could tell.  It actually left me feeling a little sticky and tight, which is unpleasant.

I love this mask.  The only thing I don't like about it is the smell.  It soothes and smooths, moisturises and brightens.  It's a great all-in-one for the days when you don't have a particular goal.

I love the smell of this mask, and it's pretty effective too!  It definitely brightens and moisturises the skin.  It's not the best for soothing or smoothing, but it doesn't really have to.

Let's be honest, this mask smells very strongly, and there's a lot of essence, but it's totally worth it.  Moisturising, brightening, and smoothing.  It's not the best one in their line, but it's up there.

This is my basic daily foundation.  I love that it has such a high SPF and relatively good coverage.  It's not perfect for the worst marks, but it covers minor imperfections and uneven skintone, and it's great under some powder and concealer.  It is a little dewy for my skin type without the powder, but you don't need much to set it.

Fantastic concealer.  A dupe for Nars Creamy Concealer but even more long-lasting.  I like to set it with a powder, but you don't need to.  Covers very well and very smoothly.

This is a pretty mediocre mask.  I did like the creamy essence, but I didn't feel like it did very much other than as a basic moisturiser.  It's not bad, but it's not great either.

I use the gold version of this on the inner corner of my eyes to highlight them and it works beautifully.  It's a little too glittery for everyday use, but I top it with a matching matte shadow and it's just right.  And when I'm dressing up, I use it as-is for the perfect level of drama.

This is my absolute favourite sheet mask.  The scent is definitely one that could be off-putting, but I absolutely love it.  And the results are pretty great - softening, soothing, redness reduction and brightening, all in one.  And the creamy essence lasts for a long time - an hour or more in one masking session!

So I need to preface this review by saying that I am sensitive to niacinamide.  This seems to be pretty uncommon, so most people won't experience what I have.  That being said, my experience was quite bad.  I had a lot of stinging and burning around my eyes and nose (the thin, sensitive skin areas) and break outs elsewhere.  And the lotion/mask felt very thick and greasy on my face.  But I gave it two stars because I think this would be great for people with dry skin and no sensitivities.  It just didn't work out for me.

This is a nice light moisturiser that's great for hot summer nights.  It's not quite enough if you're dry, struggling with moisture barrier issues, or otherwise need a little something extra, but as a simple final layer when you're already plenty moisturised, it's great.

This isn't bad, it's just not particularly spectacular either.  It's a nice lightweight gel and I like it for travel, but it's mildly moisturising and that's it.  I was hoping for a little bit more "bang" based on what others have said and it just didn't have it.

I love this mask.  It's simple and functional, and easy to use.  My main complaints are the scent (a little too strong) and the fact that it's a little too drippy.  But otherwise, it was great at moisturising and that's all I wanted from it.

This is my ride-or-die, my holy grail, my go-to product.  This doesn't work miracles, but it does what it needs to do.  It moisturises, soothes, calms, and makes my skin a little bit more happy every day.  And sometimes, that's all you need.
