PHA Peeling Toner is the second product from Benton's PHA line. It aims at smoothing and hydrating the skin through gentle exfoliation. The toner comes in a 150 ml hygienic plastic bottle with a pump. I think the dispenser is very similar (if not identical) to the one in Aloe BHA Toner which means it's really convenient to use. As usual with the brand, the ingredients list is clean. The key ones are: ➡️ lactobionic acid (third generation PHA): melts dead skin cells, milder than AHA, isn't photosensitive. ➡️ centaurea cyanus flower water & chrysanthemum morifolium flower extract: known as natural moisturizing and soothing water. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and help with facial blushing. ➡️ sodium PCA & sodium hyaluronate (Natural Moisturizing Factor): moisturizing and hydrating properties ➡️ ceramide NP: supports the renewal of the skin's natural protective layer and form an effective barrier against moisture loss. There is no fragrance added but I can smell a light scent of chlorine - I know it's strange but I do smell it 🤷‍♀️ Luckily it goes away fast! So, at first I used the toner 3 times a week but eventually ended up wiping my face every evening - it's that gentle. I like to have the cotton pad really wet so I put 4-5 pumps on it. The toner is watery and transparent and sinks in instantly. My opinion: I like it. It's a mild toner, causes no irritation to my skin and helps with sebaceous filaments on my nose. I feel like it's really moisturizing as well. It's not a wow product, perhaps more time is needed to fully see its performance. If I were to chose one of the PHA line, I'd go for the peeling gel as it gave me more visible results.

The green jar you can see hides 300 ml of transparent, watery gel. It contains 93% of aloe barbadensis leaf extract and four other botanical extracts to help hydrate and soothe the skin. What you won't see on the ingredient list is: volatile alcohol, artificial colours and fragrance 💚 This gel is one of (not that many) products I loved at first use. Why? First of all, texture - I don't think it could be any more lightweight. When put on the skin, it instantly melts and gives a watery feeling. No greasiness or lumping. It absorbs completely in a shortest time. Despite being so light, it does the job it claims - hydrates and soothes 💚 I like to use it both on my face - as an additional hydrating layer and on my body - when I'm in a hurry and can't wait for richer formulas to absorb or after being in the sun to soothe or calm the skin. I recommend Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel to anyone seeking lightweight and cooling product with clean ingredients. I guess I stop here as I absolutely love Benton's new product and don't have anything else to add.

I received PHA Peeling Gel from the brand for review purpose. Locked in a blue 70 ml tube, the product is a 2-step chemical & physical exfoliator as it comprises: ✔ third generation of PHA - lactobionic acid - which melts dead skin cells and whiteheads, ✔ natural cellulose from cotton plants which absorbs dead skin cells and impurities. Hyaluronic acid and chrysanthemum flower extract are here to moisturize and soothe the skin during exfoliation. You apply this gommage peeling to a clean, dry face and massage with fingers. As with other cellulose peelings, it starts piling and sudenly your face is covered in small white balls of cellulose and bits of the skin. I've had the product for almost a month now and used it 1-2 times a week. I can honestly say I like it very much. Not only does it polish the skin in a gentle way but leaves it extra soft and moisturized too. What I also noticed is a brightening effect. Have a look at the gallery - I'm showing the texture and before & after pics. I'm not sure whether you can see this but my skin at the after pic (bottom left) is actually brighter (like I used a highlighter!) than at the before pic. What a great surprise!

[JOLSE] ONEOSEVEN CoreFlex Essential Liquid 50 ml

I'm gonna start by saying I was extatic when I learned I'd receive it from Jolse. I was already familiar with the CoreFlex line as I had won the Cream Essence and Hydro Rich Cream in a giveaway. And I loved both, especially the essence 💙 So, let's move on to the review ⬇️

ℹ What is it? ℹ
CoreFlex Essential Liquid is a luxurious anti-aging product that provides the skin with nutrients to support its health and help regenerate its cells.

ℹ Packaging ℹ
It comes in a handy 50 ml plastic bottle with an atomizer. Sprays nicely although these are not the finest droplets I've seen.

ℹ Notable ingredients ℹ
There's no info in English on the packaging so I looked the ingredients list up in the Internet. The first place belongs to rice ferment filtrate. There's also arbutin and safflower extract but the most advertised ingredient is 5 years fermented vinegar. These guys join their forces to help skin cells regenerate and prevent ageing.

ℹ How to use ℹ
Official instructions say: "immediately after cleansing, spray onto a cotton pad or hands and apply to face. Pat gently to increase absorption. Follow with your essence or serum step". I use it after my watery toner with my hands. Four sprays are enough for both face and neck.

ℹ Performance & my review ℹ
I'm cutting straight to the chase - I'm loving 107 CoreFlex Essential Liquid! From its convenient packaging, through watery, lightly scented texture that absorbs nicely, to the way it makes my skin feel - nourished and bouncy. I feel like the liquid and cream essence are the perfect duo to fight time 😁 The only downside I could possibly think of is the price - ab. $60 💸

So, if you liked my review and feel you need to get your own bottle, it's available at but I suggest waiting for a discount event - they happen quite often and perhaps you could also grab the cream essence which I strongly advise 😁

Benton Aloe Hyaluron Cream is a healthy moisturizer that can be used even by sensitive skins as it doesn't contain artificial fragrance, color, PEGs or volatile alcohol. Its main ingredients are:
✳ aloe: leaf water (first on the list), leaf extract and leaf juice powder to soothe and protect the skin 🌿
✳ hyaluronic acid: seven types of HA with different molecular weights to vitalize the skin 💦

The cream has quite a lightweight, moist texture. It absorbs well but leaves sort of a layer - not sticky but moisturizing and making the skin feel supple. Because of this layer, oilier skins may find the cream too much after a few products used in previous steps. For the same reason, the cream is perfect to minimize the number of products in the routine - it does a great job at nourishing and moisturizing on its own #skipcare

My combination skin likes the new Benton product a lot but because it does take some time to sink in, I prefer to use it in the evenings as an additional layer of moisturizer (before sleeping mask) or as the last step of my routine when I don't feel like putting too much on. 

I received the product from Benton, free of charge, for review purposes.

[JOLSE] 2NDESIGN Springy Peeling Gel Tone Up Boost 120 ml review

Let me start by saying I always have a peeling gel on my shelf and I use them regularly - 1 or 2 times a week. 2NDESIGN product is a gentle exfoliator that claims to make the skin brighter and smoother. It contains trehalose, allantoin and a few extracts: centella asiatica, licorice, camomile, rosemary and green tea. For the complete ingredients list please see the pic.

The gel can be used either on dry skin - for a regular peeling experience or on wet skin - for a milder exfoliation. I tried both ways and as my skin isn't sensitive at all, I prefer to use it on dry face (it is still a gentle peeling though). As the product consists of cellulose, it starts flaking as soon as you put it on and begin massaging. White, medium thick gel texture has very fine peeling particles and quite a strong rosy scent. After rinsing with water, you get a soft and smooth skin - just what you expect after exfoliating.

I can recommend this peeling gel to anyone who wants to make their skin smooth but is afraid of harsh scrubs. I like it and will definitely finish my tube.

If you're interested, you can order your tube at, it retails for less than $10 at the moment. 

Herr's my review of Benton Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patches.

First of all, I was really happy to have received eye patches from Benton. I try to take good care of my under eye areas and eye patches aren't new to me. As much as I like using hydrogel patches, I'm aware the results are only temporary so I shouldn't expect much. Having said that, I can admit Benton's patches are the best I've used so far! HONESTLY. They do all of the things other patches do - give cooling sensation and iron fine lines. What makes them special is the fact they do TWO additional things - brighten and moisturize the skin under eyes. I believe there's a chance the moisturizing effect is not only temporary 💦

There's a lot of essence in the packaging which means the patches are always soaked in it. On the other hand, it makes them slide a bit at first but it doesn't bother me too much cause after a while they adhere quite tightly.

Ingredients list looks great: saccharomyces/snail secretion filtrate, bee venom, tea tree leaf water, hyaluronic acid, seaweed ingredients, gold, diamond, pearl & charcoal powders, niacinamide, adenosine. As usual, Benton's product doesn't contain harmful ingredients and is safe to use by persons with sensitive skins. The patches are also eco-friendly as they dissolve in the water. This property makes them a good material for a diy mist.

I used the patches under my eyes but also around my mouth. Smile lines were gone each time I took them off. I must admit it made me smile (damn it!) 🤣

Thank you, Benton, for selecting me once again! 💖

Here's my review of Benton's product I received free of charge from the brand. I've been testing it for over two weeks and although the deadline is in a week, I believe I already know how I feel about it.

👐 Let me start by saying creams have been very important to me, mostly at work. Apart from the computer, papers are the main items I deal with. And papers mean dust and dryness. I use a hand cream a few times a day, after every hand wash. It became a necessity and a habit at the same time.

👐 Shea Butter and Olive Hand Cream contains i.a.: 10% shea butter (Ecocert certified), 2% olive oil, hyaluronic acid, panthenol and arginine. All ingredients are EWG green grade and natural, there are no harmful ones 💚

👐 The texture of the cream is quite lightweight. It spreads easily and absorbs completely - exactly how I like a hand cream to work as I can immediately do what I want with my hands. Despite being lightweight, the product moisturizes my skin and makes it smooth. I also love the scent - it's fresh, earthy and very natural, reminds me of herbs and spices.

👐 Last but not least - I really like the packaging. The tube is sleek and simply elegant. What's also nice is that it's not too big - perfect to carry in the purse 👜

I'm posting my review of Shea Butter and Coconut Body Lotion I had received from @bentoncosmetic within their review event. Just look at this vivid yellow tube! ⭐

💛🥥 Introduction 🥥💛
Benton launched their first body product under the same line as Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream. This moisturizing lotion may actually be used both on the body and face and is suitable for the whole family.

💛🥥 Formula 🥥💛
Apart from the two ingredients that appear in its name, the lotion contains 5-hyaluronic acid complex, jojoba seed oil, chamomile water and ceramide NP not only to moisturize but also keep the skin soft and smooth. As other products from the brand, the lotion is free of irritants, artificial fragrance or colour. Thanks to its clean formula it's safe for sensitive skins.

💛🥥 My opinion 🥥💛
I've been using this product every day for past three weeks. I like its texture - a white, standard lotion, not at all greasy or sticky. I'd say it's quite lightweight but it does leave a bit of a white cast until it's absorbed. No worries though - it sinks in completely, leaving the skin silky smooth ☺ I also find the scent very nice (as opposed to the hand cream scent from this line). It is light, not bothering whatsoever.
I've only used this lotion on my body and I can definitely confirm it moisturizes the skin instantly (please swipe to the last pic). It does comfort dry, tight skin and gives it a healthy look. My babe has also used it and enjoyed the way it absorbed and left no film.

I'm happy I could try this body lotion and it has my full support.

✳ [JOLSE] Troiareuke Aesthetic Start Kit review ✳ 

Here's my review of Troiareuke ACSEN Oil Cut Cleansing that I received from Jolse.

✳ What is it ✳

A moisturizing all-in-one cleanser meant to satisfy specific needs of acne prone and/or sensitive skins. It provides deep pore cleansing with 0% oils added. ✳ Main ingredients ✳

Papaya extract - rich in vitamin C and carotinoid, makes the skin elastic and moisturized.

Portulaca oleracea extract - rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals, soothes and moisturizes the skin.

Aloe vera extract - softens, calms and helps protect the skin.

Usnea barbata extract - contains usnic acid which is a strong antifungal ingredient used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi in formulas and as a healing ingredient because of its anti-inflammatory properties. 

✳ Claims ✳

The cleanser is made with a "micro emulsion system". Micro-sized molecules cleanse impurity and excessive oil in the skin. There's no irritation, the skin is perfectly clean. 

✳ Performance & my opinion ✳

I like this cleanser a lot. It's quite a thick gel that has a lovely scent (reminds me of childhood!). It gets rid of makeup and dirt very well. Although I prefer double cleansing, I can confirm it can be used on its own, cause it doesn't leave any residue. It leaves the skin fresh, soft and moisturized - no stripping or dryness.

I received a 55 ml bottle but I'd consider buying a full size if it were on sale 😉 If you're interested, the product is available at

🍃 [JOLSE] Troiareuke Aesthetic Start Kit review 🍃 

Here's my review of Troiareuke Healing Cocktail I received from @cosmetic_jolse. The product is composed of two liquids that should be mixed together:

🍃 Skin Complex Formula: moisturizing & anti-aging facial toner mist. Rich in anti-oxidant pycnogenol to relieve oxidative stress and reduce free radicals. Pine tree extract and herbal complex formulation protect and moisturize the skin.

🍃 Anti-trouble Formula Ampoule: aimed at moisturizing, calming & soothing. Contains herbal ferment extract and phytochemical ingredients.

🍃 Performance & my opinion 🍃
When you mix the two, you get a light green liquid of a divine scent. Yes, divine! I'm also happy with the spray bottle as it produces the finest mist I've ever used. I've been using this cocktail everyday, after watery toners, and it always leaves my skin plump and moisturized. It absorbs and layers nicely. I feel like it makes other products I put on my face sink in better 💚

From the three Troiareuke products I got, this was the one I was most excited about. It hasn't disappointed but I'll be waiting for long term results. If you're interested, the product is available at

✳ [JOLSE] Troiareuke Aesthetic Start Kit review ✳ 
Tonight I'm posting my review of ACSEN Recovery Cream.

✳ What is it ✳
Face cream recommended especially for acne prone and sensitive complexions. It recovers, calms and soothes troubled skin.

✳ Main ingredients ✳
Centella asiatica and portulaca extracts, calendula and olea europaea fruit oils, hyaluronic and glycolic acids.

✳ Performance & my opinion ✳
The cream has quite a lightweight texture, it's white and its fragrance is very pleasant. I can feel it moisturizes my skin nicely without making the oilier parts even more oily. I also noticed it helped with bigger pores I have on my forehead. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) I can't say anything about the cream's abilities to treat acne or calming sensitive skin cause these aren't the problems I deal with.

Overall, it's a nice cream but it hasn't wowed me. I also find it very expensive (25 ml for about $60) - too expensive for just a nice product as far as I'm concerned. However, if you're interested, the product is available at

[JOLSE] cêpoLAB Biogenic Essence 30 ml review

The product claims to improve skin elasticity, moisturization and regeneration while reducing active oxygen, synthesis of melanin and advance glycosylation endproduct.

The essence is made of only five ingredients, the main of which is CLEPS - bio substance produced from ceriporia lacerata. All ingredients are of EWG grade 1 only 👍💚

As you can see at the pics, the essence is a yellow liquid. It's quite thin and should be used with a cotton pad. It absorbs quickly and leaves a lightweight film on the skin. The scent is controversial, I would say. It makes me think of pee 🙊 The colour is also right 🙈😂

I was really happy when Jolse chose me to test the essence. Their description of it was very promising. The product's price also suggested it should be a wow thing. But honestly, I haven't seen any results so far. I guess it does moisturize my skin but that would be it. Perhaps it's too soon? 🤷‍♀️ I will continue using it to see whether anything changes but right now I wouldn't recommend buying cêpoLAB Biogenic Essence.

If any of you would like to try this product in spite of my review, it's available at

Today is my deadline for the final review of Blithe product I luckily received from @stylekorean_global under Try Me, Review Me event. I saved the best for last but I also need to admit I did require all this time to form an opinion on Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans.

🥜 What is it?
An anti-aging, nourishing treatment that improves the appearance of rough skin. It's formulated with a blend of 8 beans like soybean, carob, lentil, peanut and black bean. There are also a few oils like lemon, peppermint, orange or olive, hyaluronic acid and adenosine (swipe for the full INCI).

🥜 Packaging & Texture
The product comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a hole on top. I love the texture - it reminds me of a melted jelly, a very rich toner or essence. My combination skin freaking loves it! It absorbs nicely and because of it, I can use it in the mornings too 👍 As you can see at the pics, the essence is yellowish with white dots in it. These are actually beads of vitamin E. Cool, ha? The small capsules burst when spreading the jelly on the skin. It's also worth mentioning that the product has a fresh scent - at first I can smell tea, then mint comes into play.

🥜 Use & performance
I've used the essence for almost one month now, mostly in my morning routines. Because of its lightweight texture, I always put it on after toners. I feel like a little goes a long way with this product although I love to use quite a lot of it (shake that bottle, girl!).

I must say I'm very happy with Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans. It is such a nice product to use. It does nourish and hydrates my skin. It leaves it bouncy and soft. Although it is difficult for me to judge its anti-wrinkle benefit (not that I'm too young, nooo 😂 I guess it's just too soon), I can see my skin is firm and tighter. I would consider buying it if it were on sale 😀

Thank you @stylekorean_global for letting me try Vital Treatment and three other Blithe products. I'm happy I could review for you and hope this wasn't the last time 😊🤞

Blithe Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum is a combination of a serum and a moisturizer. The main ingredient used in the product is chaga mushroom extract which is proven to have anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidizing, moisturizing and anti-aging benefits for the skin. Apart from the mushroom, there are a few oils on the list: white meadowfoam oil, olive oil, argan oil, rapeseedate ferment, lemon peel oil, cedarwood bark oil, geranium oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil. This mix offers moisturizing, nourishing and anti-oxidizing benefits. Adenosine is also present but down low. What is always important for sensitive skins, the product is free of parabens, synthetic colorants and fragrances, and mineral oils.

I admit Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum was one of two products out of the set I was most excited to try. And boy, it didn't let me down. At first I wasn't sure when to use it in my routines but the texture told me everything. It's a brownish pudding-like cream that nicely glides on the skin and melts when warmed up. It leaves a light film, no stickiness. It has a scent that I would call oriental but it's not overpowering, I like it. I've used it both in my am & pm routines - in the morning as the last step before sunscreen, in the evening - just before the cream/sleeping pack.

My combination skin likes this serum very much! I feel like it's a very nourishing product. It's also a nice moisturizer, keeps my face protected without any greasiness. It's too soon for visible anti-aging results, I'm afraid, but so far so good, so I hope they will come 😀

My Citrus & Honey Patting Water Pack review.

💥 What is it?
The mask is an innovative product that originates in Korean traditional cleansing method with rice water. This concentrated liquid removes fine dust and dead skin cells.
It makes skin smooth and helps better absorption of the next steps.

💥 How to use it?
I've heard of three possible ways of using the product:
⚀ as an in-shower treatment: splash and pat onto the face, rinse off (repeat if needed)
⚁ using a bowl/sink full of water: add a capful of the mask to the water and splash the mix on the face a few times.
⚂ using a cotton pad: soak the pad with water or toner, add just a few drops of the mask and swipe your face with it.

Personally, I find the first way most convenient. It doesn't take much extra time and doesn't make any mess (unlike option 2).

💥 Main ingredients
The formula contains lactic acid, many botanical extracts like: gardenia, orange, lemon, sugar maple and oils: grapefruit & lemon peel oils, orange, peppermint, clary and sandalwood oils. There's also honey extract. No parabens, sulfates or phthalates are present.

💥 My opinion on the mask
I was very curious about this patting pack. At first I thought it'd take a lot of effort to use it and I'd have a problem incorporating it into my routine. It ended up a lot better though! I use it two times a week in the shower. It does feel energizing, pehaps because of the scent, which I find a little too strong. It honestly reminds me of a citrus detergent. Results? First of all, the mask leaves my face baby smooth and soft. It is impressive. It also gives a fresh touch. I haven't noticed any brightening effect but I feel it's too soon for it.

Thank you @stylekorean_global & @blithecosmetic for letting me try the mask. I will surely keep splashing 😊

Blithe Anti-Polluaging Cleansing Water is enriched with 44% Himalayan pink salt minerals to remove dirt and even very persistent makeup gently but effectively. Himalayan pink salt provides detox and defends the skin from the effects of the environment. The blend of 10 botanical extracts provides hydration and nutrition to the skin for a soft, radiant and cleansed skin. It's worth mentioning that the product is free of alcohol, parabens, artificial colorings and fragrances.

Normally, I like to use cleansing waters only in the mornings, as the very start of my routine. I don't double cleanse after getting up, I just rinse my face with water and swipe with a cotton pad soaked in cleansing water (or a watery toner). Blithe product has an amazing light scent which feels kind of energizing. It leaves my skin fresh and soft without oily residue 👍

I don't like removing makeup using cleansing waters but for the puprose of this review I did it twice. I was pleasantly surprised as it got rid of my whole eye makeup (non-waterproof)! I used up two cotton pads on each eye and waited a few seconds for everything to dissolve. The result was really satisfying 👍

Blithe Anti-Polluaging Cleansing Water is defilinitely one of the best cleansing waters I've used and I consider myself lucky to be able to try it for free. Thank you @stylekorean_global & @blithecosmetic.

Here's my review of Re:sea Reborn Booster. I've been using it for 3 weeks now. It's a part of the Reborn line which is all about anti-aging. The brand informs the booster combats early signs of skin aging, smoothes wrinkles and restores the skin's healthy look. All thanks to key ingredients:

➡️ matrixyl 3000 - contains palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 with a high concentration of glycerin. It stimulates the growth of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic.

➡️ atelocollagen - works as a hydrating agent by holding in moisture and stimulates collagen production.

➡️ proteoglycan - hydrates and smooths the skin. It prevents the damage from environmental aggressions like UVA and UVB rays. Firms and prevents wrinkles by improving collagen and hyaluronic acid production.

➡️ marine protein - rich in amino acids, collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin. It improves dry skin and promotes cell proliferation. 

Reborn booster has a texture of a light lotion to me. It's greish/foggy in colour and has a pleasant, floral scent. It absorbs well which I'm really happy about cause I can use it in the mornings! 🤗

The product is locked in an elegant, glass bottle with a dropper. Mine, unfortunately, doesn't seem to work properly... Everytime I push the cap to take the product out, it sucks in a minimal amount of it, like almost none. Usually I end up grabbing some from the surface of the dropper cause I'm too impatient (yes, I know it's not higienic but 🤷‍♀️). 

Apart from the dropper, I've been very happy with the product. It doesn't leave my face feeling sticky and layers nicely. It gives my skin a beautiful glow (wasn't expecting it!) and, although it's difficult to address its claims to remove wrinkles yet, it does make my face smooth and soft to the touch 😀

I'm presenting Benton's new product - Tea Tree Mist 🌿 I received it from the brand for review purposes. I've been using it everyday for a little over 3 weeks.

🌿 Let's start from ingredients. The main ones are: tea tree leaf water (antibacterial, soothing & hydrating properties) and sodium hyaluronate (delivers moisture & hydrates). There are also a few other natural plant extracts on the list 🍃 The mist is recommended for irritated, sensitive skins. It can also help handle excessive sebum and dry complexions. It can be used at the toner step (the way I've used it) or whenever the skin feels dry or tight.

🌿 Benton's watery and scentless mist is closed in a convenient, plastic bottle. I must admit I like it a lot more than that of the Honest TT Mist. I find the bigger (80 ml), sturdy and transparent one a lot better than the old one - elastic and tube-like 40 ml one. Most importantly however, the spray has been improved! 🤗 It's airless and does spray more evenly. The droplets are finer which I also really appreciate - good job! 👍

🌿 My verdict: I like the Tea Tree Mist a lot. I use it in my evening routine just after cleansing. It prepares my face for next steps and hydrates it. After exfoliating, it additionally soothes the skin. I find the mist on of the best products from Benton 💕

🌿 Oh, one more thing... this morning I took the mist to the garden to take a few pics for the post and I heard my fiancé calling from upstairs: "where's the mist?" Yes, he uses it too and enjoys it just the way I do 😄

Thanks Benton for sending me your product again! 😘

[JOLSE] Nakeup Face PHA Water Tox Ampoule 33 ml

It's my first product from Nakeup Face and I received from in exchange for a review.

Let me start by saying I received PHA Water Tox Ampoule exactly a week ago so my review is based only on this short period of use. Secondly, I'm not sure how to use this product properly which I will explain later in this post.

PHA Water Tox Ampoule contains PHA for mild peeling and attracting water, BHA to take care of pores and target blackheads, adenosine to impove the appearance of fine lines and a patented ingredient called volufiline to give volume to the skin. That being said, I confess I took this info from Jolse's as there is no information in English on the packaging whatsoever 👎

As you can see, the product is locked in a cute glass bottle which also happens to be very  convenient to use. It's quite sturdy and has a nicely working pump 👍💟

Because the product contains acids I decided to use it only in my evening routine. For the same reason, I put it on as a first step after cleansing. At first I put two pumps and waited about 15 minutes for it to absorb. Guess what? It didn't. It left my face sticky as hell. How should I continue with my routine?, I thought. Well, a friend advised to put on the toner using a cotton pad to take the stickiness off. It did help but I wasn't satisfied. I asked the company how to best use the product but they haven't responded. I also tried to put it on as a normal ampoule/serum - in the middle of my routine. But hey, acids don't work like that so what's the point? Finally I switched to using only one pump after cleansing and it does absorb but my face is still somewhat sticky 😣

Honestly, if I were to decide now whether to purchase it with my own money or not, I would definitely resign. It's too soon for me to tell you any results besides moisturizing. I guess it is a plus but given the fact how problematic the usage seems, I don't think it's worth it.

If you still want to try it, the product is available at

Tonight I'm reviewing the newest baby from Benton's aloe line - Aloe Soothing Mask Pack. I already know and like Aloe BHA Skin Toner and Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel (the latter is one of my favourite Benton's products), so hopefully the mask will be just as good 🤗

The mask claims to provide soothing, moisturizing and hydrating effects to the skin. It's all achieved by inclusion of: aloe leaf water and extract, sodium hyaluronate and sodium PCA, camellia leaf water, beta-glucan and cucumber extract. On the contrary, there's no alcohol or fragrance added 👍

Time to put the sheet on my face! The material is medium thick and easy to unfold. It is soaked in thin essence and there's plenty of it. The fit isn't perfect - the chin area is too wide for my face. The mask adheres very well though and is therefore really comfortable to wear. After half an hour it's time to take the sheet off. I'm happy to see my skin isn't sticky at all. The remaining essence takes a short while to absorb and I'm left with almost matte and refreshed skin.

The mask is recommended for every skin type but I think it will be mostly appreciated by those with normal, oily or sensitive complexions. There's no heavy moisturization or nourishment but the skin is hydrated and somewhat cooled down. Definitely a good one! 🤗

I received the product from Benton for review purposes, all opinions are mine.

[JOLSE] Harumada Triple Balance One-Step Cleansing Foam Pad review.

Today I'm sharing my thoughts on my first Harumada product that I received for review purposes from Jolse.

Let's start with a bit of a theory. Harumada Triple Balance One-Step Cleansing Foam Pad is a one-step mild cleansing foam pad that gives the same results as a traditional cleansing foam. It smoothes out and moisturizes the skin. Natural ingredients make it appropriate for sensitive skins.

How does it perform? If you have a look at the gallery, you'll see the pad has a convenient size - you can put 2 or 3 fingers into the pouch. Its triple-layered structure of 100% natural cotton, embossing and aircubes is soaked in a cleansing solution. The essence has a herbal scent and starts foaming as soon as you start massaging the pad over the face. It creates quite a nice lather which needs to be rinsed with water.

Results? I must admit the pads work just as well as a standard cleansing foam. They're easy to use and nicely reach all parts of the face and neck. I didn't experience any dryness or irritation. Would I purchase it for regular usage? Well, I like to cleanse in the shower, so I think I will stick to a normal foam in a tube. However, Haramuda pads are a great choice for travels - they don't need much room in the luggage and don't spill like opened samples 👍

Today I'm reviewing the newest product from Benton - Cacao Moist and Mild Serum. I received it from the brand within their review event.

I was really curious about this serum since I had missed the event for Cacao Moist and Mild Cream and judging by samples I had, the cream was lightweight and moisturized nicely.

The serum is all about hydrating and nourishing. Its main ingredients are cacao related: extract, seed and flower. They aim at moisturizing, keeping skin supple and smooth and reduce harmful oxygen. Other notable ingredients are: hyaluronic acid, centella asiatica, licorice, rosemary and chamomile extracts. Good news for sensitive skins: there's no colorants, fragrance, alcohol and PEGs.

The product comes in a neat plastic 30 ml bottle with a dropper. It's easy to use and dose but I have one BUT to it 🙊 When some of the serum remains on the dropper and I close the bottle, it does leak a bit. Perhaps the hole in the bottle is slightly too small? 🤔

Anyway, the product itself is a transparent gel with air bubbles in it. At first it may seem thick but when it touches the skin, it melts and spreads easily. What I love is that it absorbs quickly and isn't sticky at all. Perfect for layering and morning use! 👍

My impression of Cacao Moist and Mild Serum is very positive ✔ It does what it claims, i.e. hydrates and nourishes my combination skin. It leaves my face dewy and soft and works great with other products I put on. Because of its lightweight formula, I believe it can be used all year round. Have a look at the gallery 📸

Thank you Benton for the chance to try it for free. 

[JOLSE] Beauty of Joseon Revitalize Sleeping Mask 80 ml 🛌

I received it free of charge from Jolse for review purposes.

The brand claims the mask focuses on two aims: brightening and anti-wrinkle benefits. It also makes skin smoother and elastic. Ingredients list is full of goodies that are about to deliver the above results, a.o. niacinamide, trehalose, hyaluronic acid, orchid extract, honey extract, adenosine, soybean extract and ginseng root extract. 

I must admit I liked this sleeping mask at first use. There is a light, fresh scent to it, nothing bothering. The texture is something worth giving a longer description - at the beginning it seems like a thick jelly. A jelly that returns to its former shape - you can stir the spatula as much as you want and eventually it will be smooth again. On the face however, it melts and absorbs nicely. It does leave a film but it's not sticky or slimy. I like to put it on twice, the second layer does need some extra patting though.

Results? The mask does moisturize the skin nicely. It also plumps and makes it elastic - when I press my cheeks, they bounce back pleasantly 😀 In the morning, my face is lightly toned and fresh.

The mask is available at The current price is $19,50. I hope my review made you curious about it. Thanks Jolse for letting me try my first product from Beauty of Joseon.

 I received iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum from @iunik_official for free for review purposes.

The serum claims to strengthen the skin and restore its natural barrier. It also says to smooth out skin's texture and even out its tone. Key ingredients are: snail secretion filtrate, centella asiatica leaf water and extract, extracts of: rice, sesame, eggplant, licorice, blueberry and ginkgo biloba leaf, adenosine and arginine.

The product is closed in a clear glass bottle  with a dropper applicator - very comfortable and hygienic to use.

I use the serum everyday in my morning routine. Its texture is perfect for me - a "watery" not sticky gel which absorbs quite fast. I don't detect any scent. It does leave a film but is not tacky whatsoever. One full dropper is enough to cover my whole face and neck. Results? First of all, the product leaves my skin bouncy! I feel like it also moisturizes but not too much - drier complexions would definitely need something stronger. The serum works really nice with my sunscreen too 😀

Thank you @iunik_official for letting me try your Black Snail Restore Serum. I'll keep on using it every morning cause it works beautifully with other parts of my am routine 👍

I received iUNIK Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel from @iunik_official for free for review purposes.

The product is all about removing dead skin cells and providing a clear and smooth complexion. Something we all need once a week, isn't it?

The peeling contains AHA fruit complex composed of 5 different fruit extracts: lime 🍋, grape 🍇, orange 🍊, apple 🍏 and lemon 🍋. The texture is a transparent, thin jelly. There are no peeling particles or crystals - have a look at photos to see how it looks like. There is a distinct (herbal?) scent which isn't bothering at all.

The product should be used after cleansing, on a dry skin. I have to admit that I'm more familiar with mechanical peelings that are used on wet face, so my first try of this one was not very successful 😄 It doesn't work with water at all (yes, I didn't read the instructions! 😶). Second use was much better -  jelly spreads very well on dry skin and rolls after a short while of massaging. No stinging or redness. After rinsing it off the face, you get a smooth and soft complexion 👍

Honestly, I was positively surprised that a peeling without particles does such a nice job. It's very mild but polishes the skin like a scrub. What's also important is that it doesn't leave my face dry. This, I believe, makes it appropriate for sensitive skins as well.

 I'll continue using it once a week to mantain a clear and smooth skin.

Today I'm reviewing Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water which I received from @bentoncosmetic for review purposes.

Let's start from technicals. The product is infused with Tea Tree Leaf Water and Tea Tree Leaf Oil. TTL 🍃 provides antibacterial and calming benefits to the skin which makes it a desirable ingredient for people with oilier or acne prone complexions. Tea tree is also known to have soothing, hydrating and anti-blemish effects so other types of skin can surely benefit from it as well.

With only 10 ingredients, the water is free of harmful ones like PEGs, colorants, fragrance or sulfates. 

The product comes in a simple plastic bottle. I like that it's transparent cause I can see how much of it is left. What I also like is the cap - I use cotton pads with this product so a simple cap is better than a pump cause the latter tends to squirt watery textures too much.

I've been using the water as a morning cleanser as when I start the day I don't cleanse my face with a cleanser as such, just water. Benton's product is perfect for this purpose. It cleanses mildly and leaves the skin fresh and ready for whatever comes next. I experience no irritation or other adverse reactions. How about the scent? Well, first let me say that I'm not a fan of tea tree smell 🙊 I remember opening a sheet mask with this ingredient and I was so put off by the smell 😝 that I threw it away. Luckily, this cleansing water is very lightly scented and it doesn't bother me at all 👍

My final thoughts⁉️
In my opinion Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water is a perfect morning cleanser. It leaves my skin clear and smooth. I can actually see a small change in the skin on my forehead - it's not as bumpy as usual. I also tried it as a makeup remover but honestly I prefer thicker textures like milk for that.

Swanicoco Golden Time Leap Mask Pack is the fifth mask provided to me by the brand under their #swans and #swans2 events 🙌

This mask is very similar to the one I recently reviewed, namely Shining Luminous Mask Pack. Honestly, if you asked me to tell differences between them, I don't think I could name any.

Main features:

✅ medium thick material,

✅ huge sheet - this causes problems with adjusting the mask to the face,

✅ transparent, runny gel essence, just enough of it in the pouch,

✅ somewhat medical scent, I think I could also smell mint.

I had the mask on for half an hour. The remaining essence absorbed quite fast and left a dewy, shiny look. The mask was supposed to firm the skin and I think it did leave it bouncy. If it wasn't for the fit, I would have been happier about this sheet mask.

Although it wasn't my favourite mask pack, I'm grateful @swanicoco.en let me try it 😀

I received the Swanicoco Bio Nature Daily Swan Mask Pack from the brand as a part of my #swan2 package.

The mask claims to help brighten and improve firmness and elasticity of the skin. Main ingredients are: niacinamide, adenosine, EGF, FGF, silk amino acids and neofinetia falcata callus culture extract - it really is a collaboration between natural ingredients and  high tech-bio ones 😄

Main features:

▶️ very thin material

▶️ plastic backing to help unfold the sheet

▶️ big size - the mask is more suitable for bigger faces 😄

▶️ light pleasant smell 

I had the mask on for less than 30 mins as it got dry quite quickly. There was a decent amount of jelly essence left in the package. After I took the mask off, my skin was fresh and plump with a dewy finish 👍

Swanicoco Shining Luminous Mask Pack was provided to me by the brand under their #swans2 event.

Honestly, I have mixed feelings about this mask 😬 First of all, the medium thick sheet is huge! And I mean HUGE. The size makes it quite difficult to adjust to the face - a part of the forehead lies on my hair, eye holes are too big, nose is too long. The worst thing however is the mouth and chin part - it creases a lot and doesn't want to adhere well (I hate it, but you can swipe to the third pic to see how bad the fit is) 😣

The essence is a transparent, runny gel. There is only a small left over which I used to cover my neck. I had the mask on for 20 minutes and it left my face wet. The essence took some time to absorb but there was no stickiness - just a dewy, shiny look. I wouldn't be happy about this shine if I used the mask in the morning but in the evening it was just fine. I must admit it did brighten my skin! I liked the glow I saw in the mirror, so if it wasn't for the size and fit, I would totally love this mask.

Thank you Swanicoco for letting me try your products for free 😘

Tonight I'm reviewing the first full size product (I don't consider sheet masks full size products when it comes to reviewing a pr package 😀) from the parcel I received from Swanicoco under their #swans2 event.

I honestly thought Lifetime Saver Bio Cream would be the last product I'd open. I guess I'm not that into creams generally - for the night I prefer a sleeping mask and for daytime, most of the creams are too heavy for me - a combo of moisturizing gel and sunscreen is way better. 

But, onto the Swanicoco cream. Its main ingredients are: PmGF-x placental-like growth factor, hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin and adenosine. It's meant for skin elasticity improvement, nutrition treatment to damaged skin and providing hydration to dry skin.

I opened it for the first time when my lips felt very dry and I somehow couldn't find any lip balm around. The texture is quite thick but not oily at all. The white cream needs a longer while to sink into my combo skin and leaves a slight film on it. Because of it, I can't use it in the morning but it does a great job in my evening routine. It locks in everything I put before it and makes my skin soft and nourished. My fiancé, on the other hand, finds the cream perfect for his dry, sensitive complexion. He says it provides all-day-long moisturization and comforts his skin after cleansing. He also enjoys the fact that the cream is scentless (although I think there is a light scent to it).

So, my review of Swanicoco Lifetime Saver Bio Cream is definitely positive. I would mostly recommend it for drier skins that need thicker textures. I also think it's great for winter time and windy days.

Thank you, Kevin, for picking this cream for me 💕 Another Swanicoco product that I can honestly recommend to skincare enthusiasts! 🤗

I received Benton Dear My Best Friend Bar directly from the brand in exchange for my honest review. I have used it for two weeks now and feel I'm ready to give my opinions on it. 

➡️ What is a BF Bar?
It's the first naturally derived cold pressed soap for body and face.

➡️ What is it made of?
Ingredients list starts with oils: coconut, palm, olive, castor seed, grape seed, macadamia, rice and avocado. There are also: shea butter, honey, propolis and centella extracts (closer to the bottom of the list).

➡️ Which skin types is it suitable for?
The brand assures the soap can be used by persons with dry and sensitive complexions as well as those who fight excess sebum on their faces or other body parts (like back or shoulders).

▶️ My review on BF Bar
First of all, Benton's soap is only the second bar I have used to cleanse my face, so I was really curious about it.

The bar is brownish and I can smell cinammon when it foams. And it foams very well - have a look at the gallery 📷

The packaging includes a foaming net which can be very handy if you have a place to hang it which I don't 😀 So I only tried it once and laid the bar on the tray.

First I started using it both on my face and body. It cleansed very well but I didn't like the feeling it left on my body - too squeaky. I felt it may dry out my skin so I sticked to using it only on my face. And I really like it there! It makes my skin feel fresh and clean but doesn't leave it squeaky. I included my before/after pics 😎 so have a look.
My fiancé's also happy with the soap and his skin is sensitive and sometimes problematic.

Overall, I find Benton's BF Bar a good product and an interesting alternative for a foam cleanser. I guess I was a bit worried it wouldn't be convenient to use but it turned out a bar of soap is just as good as a gel or foam.

Thank you Benton for letting me try your newest product! Well done! 👏😀

Elizavecca Power Ringer Mask Pack with red ginseng was my first from the line. It promises wrinkle improvement, skin brightening and nourishing. 
I liked this mask although it didn't wow me. The material was soft and very thin. It was also quite strechy which made it easy to adjust to the face. It clinged beautifully and was very comfortable to wear. There was a decent amount of clear, gel essence which had a sweet earthy scent. I had it on for almost an hour. It made my skin bright and supple but also sticky. The essence didn't absorb completely. I would recommend to use it in the evening routine rather than in the morning. 

The Cure Vitamin Collagen Essence Mask reminded me of the Cucumber one I used a few days ago. They were pretty similar in fit, essence and results.

After I opened the pouch, a sweet scent appeared. Thicker, corrugated material was easy to put on and adjust and clinged quite well to my face. The fit was fine.

Just like with the cucumber sheet, I had the mask on for about 25 minutes. Immediately after taking it off, I felt a sticky residue but then the essence absorbed and it was not that bothering. The mask provided some moisturization but nothing more, I'm afraid. I would not buy it on my own now that I have tried it. 

I only had a decant of this product. It didn't impress me at all. First of all, I didn't like the smell. It reminded me of a lemon a bit but most importantly I smelled tea tree oil which isn't nice to me. Second of all, it's said to be oil free and to me it was not lightweight at all. It was sticky and stayed on skin, didn't absorb well.

I must admit it provided moisturization but was too heavy for daily using. Perhaps drier skins would appreciate it more.

I managed to make three full uses out of my Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask sachet. First of all, I love the smell! It's fresh and so different from other products' scents. The texture of the mask is smooth and rather light. It moisturizes my skin well and makes it soft. I wake up with an even skin tone and... a very oily forehead, hmm. Fortunately, I haven't noticed clogged pores or zits.

Generally, a good mask, but no wow effect for me. Probably, a sample is just not enough to see any major change in the skin.

I received Foodaholic Red Ginseng Natural Essence 3D Mask from Amabie in exchange for my honest review. 
It contains red ginseng extract that recovers damaged skin and helps the skin to maintain its health and glow.

Unfortunately I need to start with a negative thing about the mask. I find the fit awful! I can't understand why 3D masks have the seam in the middle. What kind of face are they designed for? Alien's? The material is not my favourite either - quite stiff and not very clingy (the latter however may be because of the seam that prevents the sheet from staying still on the face).

When I opened the pouch, I could smell a pleasant, sweet, herbal scent. I had the mask on for about 30 mins. It gave me a cooling effect all this time. When I took the sheet off, the gelish essence was almost completely absorbed. I really liked the result - my skintone was even, bright and my face was supple and soft. If it wasn't for the fit, my review would be 100% positive.

I received The Cure Cucumber Collagen Essence Mask from Amabie in exchange for my honest review.

First thing I thought of when I was tearing the pouch was that a cucumber mask should have a fresh, light scent, watery essence that would absorb to a matte finish and leave my skin clear and fresh.

Well, I didn't get what I'd imagined but the reality didn't disappoint me too much. The fit of the mask was decent, it was a bit too wide for me but very easily adjustable. The material wasn't my favourite - corrugated, thicker sheet. I actually liked the scent, it was cucumberish. The essence wasn't watery at all, it was quite a thick gel. I had the mask on for about 25 minutes. It was still damp when I was taking it off and the remaining essence took a while to absorb. It gave me a slightly sticky feeling but my skin was supple. I would say this mask is a decent, everyday one, with no wow effect but no major flaws either.


I received Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash from Amabie in exchange for my honest review.

To be honest I've never really paid too much attention to cleansing products. I mean, I use them of course, but I don't expect any special effects. I like it when my second cleanser foams well, smells nice and doesn't dry out my skin too much.

This face wash fulfils the above criteria. It has a jelly texture which starts foaming when mixed with water. It has a pleasant herbal scent. Additionally, it doesn't contain any parabens, SLS or phthalates.

I've been sharing the product with my bf and we both confirm that it doesn't leave the skin dry (and his skin is drier and more sensitive than mine). The face is clean and soft.

Himalaya Face Wash deserves a positive review and that's what it gets from me 

It's the second mask of this brand I have used. The fit was great, the material was medium thick and clinged well to the skin. There was a decent amount of thin essence which gradually sank into my skin. I had the mask on for about 35 minutes. After I took it off, some essence stayed on my face but there was no stickiness, which I find a big plus.

I didn't notice any whitening effect but my face was moisturized and soft.

Annie's Way Brightening Jelly Mask's main ingredients are arbutin, hyaluronic acid and vitamin c. It claims to brighten and moisturize the skin, minimize fine lines and purify pores.

The sachet I received from Amabie in exchange for my honest review contained 40 ml of the product. It was just enough for 3 uses. The mask was a thick, transparent jelly with a light chemical scent. I put it on clean skin for about 20 minutes after which it dried to some extent. I used a spatula to take the jelly off my face and then washed the remaining off.

My opinion on the mask is very positive. First of all, it left my skin soft, moisturized and evenly toned. I also noticed, which surprised me a lot, that it made other products absorb better! It was really unexpected that the Cosrx Snail Essence, which normally takes a longer while to absorb, sank in quite fast. The only negative thing I can say about the mask is that it slightly dried out my under eye areas. Therefore I recommend to omit these parts when using the mask.

Goodal Water Full Mask Firming contains salicornia herbacea extract, sea water and marine collagen. It is supposed to deeply moisturize and firm the skin.

First of all, I enjoyed the texture and fit of the mask. It was extra thin and stretchy which made it easier to adjust to the face. The sheet adhered perfectly, felt like second skin. The gelish essence had a nice, fresh scent. 

I had the mask on for about 40 minutes, after which it was quite dry. My skin felt well moisturized and bouncy (I love such effect). It took a little while for the remaining essence to absorb but when it did, there was almost no stickiness.

My first sheet from Dr. Jart+ which is destined for troublesome skins. 

First, let me say I find the package extraordinary - bigger than usual and on the back you can find mask description and instructions in 14 (!) languages, including Polish. Really nice.

I had the mask on for something like 40 minutes during which it nicely clinged to my face. The fit was almost perfect and the material soft and smooth. The essence - thin gel - had a specific scent.. at first I thought it was herbal but then started to smell something chemical. It didn't bother me at all, just made me think of  #itsnotamedicine sentence on the packaging.

After taking the sheet off, it took some time for the essence to absorb and when it did, my skin felt a bit sticky. I'm not sure if I noticed any effect beside cooling but on the other hand I didn't have any major imperfections to treat.

Gold Royal Jelly Hydro Gel Mask Pack is a standard two-piece hydro gel mask. It's easy to put on however some adjustments are needed. It was very comfy to wear though and gave me a nice cooling effect.

The essence was... well there was some essence but not too much. I had it on for about 30 mins but I might have as well kept it on longer, I didn't know when to take it off really. My skin looked bright and fresh (the cooling effect did great job).

It was a pleasure to have the Skin79 Fresh Garden mask in Snail on my face. I kept it on for approx. 35 minutes. The essence was watery and there was some of it left in the package.

After taking it off, I felt my skin was moist, fresh and brightened. No stickiness!

At first I liked this foam very much. It cleaned my skin very well and left it squeaky. I used to enjoy this feeling, silly me. Then I realized it dried my skin too much and after using up the tube I never repurchased. Perhaps for very oily skins this foam would perfect but for mine - normal/oily it wasn't.

It was my first Asian lotion and it was a completely different experience from what I've known. Everytime I used it, it would leave my skin moisturized and supple. My skin is normal/oily so the texture was a little thick although it would absorb quite well. I noticed it enhanced absorbtion of other products I put on my face. Overall, I enjoyed this lotion especially in the winter.

It was one of first Asian masks I've ever used. I had a pack of 35 sheets. I liked them very much. They were moisturizing and would leave my face feeling soft and smooth. There was some stickiness though. The fit wasn't perfect but results and price were perfect :) The only disadvantage I see now is the packaging - it's better when masks are packed separately.

Leaders Pore-Scaling black mask was very comfy: soft material and almost perfect fit. I really love it when the sheet clings to my face throught the whole masking session. This one did - for about 40 minutes. I also enjoyed the smell and tons of essence. 

I'm not sure if my pores were affected but I can see the tone is evened and the skin is supple. The mask did leave my face a little sticky and it took a while for the essence to fully absorb but I can forgive this cause overall it was a pleasant experience.

I didn't expect I would like it that much, I must say. The mask got hot (well, very warm, don't think it burnt my skin) as soon as I put it on and stayed this way for about 15 minutes. This and the camomile scent that started to emit made me feel really comfy and relaxed.

I do recommend the Kao mask for anyone who needs to relax.

I like this cream. I used one jar of it. I bought it to incorporate it in my morning routine but it turned out it was too thick for my oily forehead. It was perfect for the evening though. As the last step, it locked all the previously used products in and provided the right level of moisturization throught the night. 

Luke Charcoal Nose Strip is nothing special to be honest. Everytime I used it, it sticked to my nose too much - when I took it off, some parts stayed on the skin. Some blackheads were gone but not that many. 

I used this patches only once. First of all, it was very comfortable to wear them. The outer part is covered with a material which makes it easy to put patches in place (as opposed to Petitfée patches). They don't slide at all - once placed on the skin, they stay there. But have I seen any effects after taking them off? Nope. Sorry.

SWEET V Aloe Whitening Mask contains 92% Aloe Vera soothing gel. The pack was huge - 30g of thin transparent essence was enough to cover my arms, legs and neck after I had put the sheet on my face. The fit was not perfect, the mouth and eye holes were pretty small for me, but the fabric clinged well so it wasn't really a problem.

I had the mask on for about 30 mins. It took a longer while for the essence to absorb and my skin felt somewhat sticky afterwards. On the good side, it was well moisturized and even.

My Scheming's Snail Essence Hydrating & Repairing Black Mask is said to contain high concentration of snail filtrate to deliver intense hydration to the skin, repair dry skin and lock in moisture. Black cotton mask purifies clogged pores, removes dirt and excess sebum.

I had it on for a little more than 40 mins due to loads of essence. Not only was the sheet dripping with gel-like transparent liquid, but there was plenty of it in the pouch. And by plenty I mean PLENTY. I managed to cover my neck, both arms and make a refill on the sheet. 

I really liked my skin after taking the mask off. It was plump, moist and fresh. Plus, there was absolutely no stickiness. I do recommend it!

I really liked this sleeping mask. It was my first product from Too Cool For School. I loved the scent and texture - quite thick but not greasy at all. It made my skin feel very nice - soft and bouncy. A great mask, worth trying.

This was my first breast mask :) Black sheets had a cooling effect. They were soaked in thin watery essence and stayed wet for a long time. It's difficult to review a breast mask but I guess it made my skin smooth and soft. Besides, the packaging was beautiful.

The Lala mask was very nice. Sheer material, clinged well and had a pleasant gelish essence. The sheet was moist for a long time, left my face a little sticky but fresh and bouncy. I do recommend it.

This Aloe mask is the second 4 Seasons sheet mask I have used. The first one was Red Ginseng. Honestly, apart from the smell, I haven't noticed any difference between them.

What about effects? I guess they just made my skin moist. I didn't see anything else. On the bright side, there was a lot leftover essence in the package and my skin wasn't sticky at all after taking the sheet off.

I hated the fit though - the mask is huge and therefore difficult to properly place on the face. I will not repurchase. 

I liked this mask and will be happy to buy it again. The best points about it were:

🔹a thin sheet dripping in watery essence, a lot of leftover in the pouch

🔹pleasant, light smell

🔹results: even skin tone, clear and bright complexion

Let me review Nature Republic Snail Solution Mask Sheet in pros and cons:

✔ it smells very nice, not too strong (I'm hopeless at identifying smells, so I won't even try)

✔ the essence is quite thick and there's enough of it to use on the neck and arms

✔ after taking the mask off, the skin is not sticky and the essence doesn't need a lot of time to absorb completely

❌ the material is horrible: stiff and paper-like, which makes it difficult to fit the mask. I had to straighten it every minute, especially in the chin area. There were also many bubbles.

❌ I managed to have it on my face only for like 20 mins because of the poor fit/material.

Overall... I know better snail masks.

The mask is supposed to leave the skin clear. I'm not really sure what it means but I liked it. I had it on for about 30 mins. The skin wasn't sticky after using, I would say it was fresh. There was also some cooling effect. The essence was milky but not too thick. There was some of it left in the package to put on the neck and arms. I loved the scent, reminded me of flowers. The mask itself was not too thin but I somehow tore it in the cheek area when unwrapping! Overall a nice one.

Putting this mask on, at first I actually smelled lemon but then it became sort of a chemical scent. The sheet was different than other Mizon masks I have used so far - it was embossed and very soft. The essence was watery but I had a feeling there was not that much of it. I'm not sure how to say it - when I had it on my face I felt like the material was almost dry (after like 5 mins) but when I touched it, it was all wet.

Since I'm not a very patient person, I had it on for only 25 mins because this strange dry/wet feeling got on my nerves. 

It took some time for the essence to absorb after taking the sheet off but there was no stickiness. My skin was soft and hydrated, no miracles. I will not buy it again.

Mizon's Almighty Cold Cream is the first step in my evening routine - it makes make up melt very well (but I usually don't do heavy make ups). Then I continue with foam cleansing. Despite first hesitation, it turned out to be a nice product. A little goes a long way - I've used it for a few months now.

I like Mizon masks for their super fit and quite thick material. This particular one had a light smell and was soaked in a gel like essence. There was some leftover for neck and arms. I had it on for 30 min after which the mask was still wet but I started to feel a little itchy, so took it off immediately (I always fear irritation). It took some time for the essence to absorb after taking the sheet off but there was no stickiness. My skin was soft and plump.

The tomato mask, as other I'm Real masks, is a thin sheet dripping in watery essence💧. There is a lot of it left in the package, which let me have it on my face for more than 40 minutes (having refilled the essence on my cheeks and forehead twice). The mask is supposed to make the skin radiant and I must say it does the job. When I took it of, my face was moist, fresh and bright.

What didn't I like about the juicy 🍅? Its smell! I don't know about you guys, but for me it was like some kind of old-fashioned perfume. A very heavy perfume.

It's difficult for me to review this one - it has some pros and cons. The fit was quite good, perhaps a little too wide in the lower part. The material was ok, it adhered well. The essence was gelish but there was almost none left in the package. I had it on for ab. 25 minutes. I would have perhaps kept it on longer if my left temple  hadn't started to feel itchy... When I took the mask off, it turned out I had a hives bump! Just a single bubble and I can't be sure that it was caused by the mask but still... On the contrary, the rest of my face looked really nice - evenly toned, fresh and soft. 

Sooo, it was neither a failure nor a success. Hope other Mirum masks are better.

The mask contained wild ginseng and was meant for cleansing. It smelled heavenly - I really enjoy basementlike scents :) The sheet was soft and clingy and fitted my face quite well. I took it off after ab. 40 minutes. My skin was wet and a bit sticky but the feeling disappeared in a short while. My skin felt moisturized and the tone was evened. Another great mask!

It was one of the most exclusive sheet masks I've ever used. I really liked the way my skin felt when I had it on. The fit was great, it clinged very well and stayed moist for a long time. The essence took a while to completely absorb after I took the sheet off but there was no stickiness. My skin was moisturized and smooth.

The mask has a decent fit and the material is soft and clingy. A light, pleasant smell completes a great masking session. 

Drenched in gelish essence, the mask made my skin super moisturized and bouncy. I had it on for about 40 mins. It left my skin a little sticky but looking good.

I bought Neulii Anti-wrinkle serum when I realized Cosrx Snail essence was too thick for me to use in the mornings. It was a good choice - it absorbed better, didn't leave my skin sticky and provided decent moisturization. 

It was a part of my AM routine for over 5 months. I liked it for being light, scentless and leaving my skin plump.

This one was very comfortable to wear - quite thick and clingy, perfectly fitted my face - no creases or bubbles. Scentless and drenched in a gelish essence, it stayed wet for a long time. I took it off after about 45 minutes and my skin looked even and fresh. It was also moisturized. 

I would say it was a good everyday mask. A great advantage of this sheet was that it could be used at a daytime as it didn't leave any stickiness - it actually dried to a matte feeling. 

First of all, the fit was perfect - small eyes and nose holes assured that the material covered as much skin as possible, no creasing, no bubbles. The sheet was soft and clinged to my face from the moment I put it on. It was so comfy! As for the effects of this beautifully packed mask, my skin felt a little sticky but well moisturized and sort of plump. 

What I also found nice was that the round package made it easier for me to take the leftover out of it.

As I had hoped, the essence was rich and creamy and there was a decent amount of leftover in the package. After 3 tries, I found the best way to benefit from it. First, I put the leftover on my face and then place the sheet on top of it. Doing it the other way round (as with other masks) doesn't really work as the essence is too thick to go through the material.

I keep the mask on for about 45 mins, after which my skin looks lovely. It feels nourished and moisturized. It's not sticky or greasy. I don't need to put any cream on top of it before going to bed. The fit is not perfect but the effect is too good not to forgive this little flaw. 

Overall, great, rich mask that is perfect for cold, windy days. I believe dry skins will appreciate it regardless of the weather.

Pure Propolis Skin Lifting Mask is the second Tosowoong sheet mask I've tried. The essence was a transparent gel and there was some (small) leftover in the package. I could smell a slight honey scent all the time I had the sheet on. After 40 minutes, my skin was still covered in essence and it took a while to absorb. No sticky feeling! My face felt soft and plump.

My Scheming 7-in-1 Brightening Essence Mask is one of the masks that leave the skin matte! It's like you take the sheet off and after 10 sec your face is ready for next steps. No need to wait for the essence to sink in, not to mention stickiness at all. If I were to choose a day mask, this would defo be it. It has a very light scent, the material is soft. 

What about the results? Well, it's hard to say.. I haven't seen any overwhelming brightening, though the skin tone was evened. I would say it made my skin fresh and clean.

I absolutely loved it! Why?

- The most perfect fit ever - I felt like it was designed for my face

- Thin, sheer, clingy fabric

- A lot of gel essence left

- Effects: moisturized, supple and bright skin

When I opened the package, I smelled a light, chemical scent but it quickly fainted. I had the mask on for ab. 35 mins and during the first 10 I felt some tingling (it happened for the first time with a sheet mask!). After taking the sheet off, there was some sticky feeling but it didn't bother me - my skin looked great! Will definitely repurchase.

I really like Holika Holika Juicy sheet masks line. They are medium thick, fit my face and cling to the skin very well. Plus they are affordable.

The blueberry one had a fruity smell and a transparent, gelish essence. I had it on for 30 mins after which my skin looked radiant and moisturized (without a sticky feeling to it). A good everyday mask that I recommend to everyone.

I received Peripera Peri's Ink for free in exchange for my honest review. The colour I have is #2 Get The Eye. If I were to describe it, I would say it's a mix of pink and red. It depends on the light and on how many layers you cover your lips with, whether it will be more pink or red. Honestly, I don't use lipsticks or lip glosses (not to mention inks!) that often, so I can't compare it to other products. I found this ink solid. It nicely covers the lips, gives a matte finish and adding more layers doesn't spoil the effect. I haven't noticed any excessive dryness either. The ink is not waterproof and will not last all day however it will survive a drink or a small meal. That certainly is something! I recommend it to all lipsticks lovers that want the colour on their lips to last longer. It also looks nice with a bit of transparent gloss on top. The photos show lips with the ink on in different light.

I use this serum in samples only, it's more economical this way. The texture is medium thick and it takes a short while to absorb. I must say I see the results - mostly on my neck. It does smooth the skin and make it softer. On my face I can see that after using the serum, other products in my routine absorb better. I also enjoy the smell - mildly herbal. I do recommend it but bare in mind it's quite expensive and it's better to buy samples.

This is one of my favourite masks. I know my review will not differ from others' reviews on this one but the mask is really incredible. Starting from the fit (perfect), material (so smooth and clingy) and scent (mild, honey and flower like) to the amount of essence that is left after putting the sheet on the face (I managed to cover my neck and arms) and the way my skin felt after taking it off - moist and evened as never. There was some sticky feeling but it disappeared after the remaining essence absorbed. Absolute hit! I do recommend it.

Not only does it leave the skin soft and hydrated, but evens out its tone as well (no stickiness!).
The smell is odd for me but disappears quickly. There's a lot of essence to use on the body but it's quite thick so the mask isn't dripping. The fit is not perfect but at least the material sticks well to the face.
Overall, a very nice performance. I will repurchase for sure.

This time great expectations were followed by great disappointment. At first I thought I'd like it but then saw my under eye area was so creased in the mornings after using it. It didn't work with concealer either. I waited a week but nothing changed. I will never buy it again.

It is one of the most recommended Missha product. I have read so many positive reviews that I just had to try it. I couldn't wait to put it on my face. It was a pleasant serum, I liked to use it every evening in my pm routine. Felt good on my skin and didn't cause any negative effects. But did it do anything positive? I don't think so. Perhaps it was an investment in the future condition of my skin but I guess I should see something more than just no break outs or other negativities... I don't think I will purchase it again.

Dear Klairs sheet masks are really decent moisturizing and soothing masks. I do recommend them. They are perfect for sensitive skin.

It was my second hydrogel and I must say this formula is much more comfortable than the traditional sheet. I could sip tea and even eat a little without having to adjust the mask after every move (bite). But let's cut to the chase: I REALLY liked it. I was pleased with the cooling feeling the mask provided (I kept it in the fridge for some time before using). Had it on my face for about 30 mins. It left my skin plump and looking pampered. 

Well, I'm not sure what to think about this mask. It's good, my skin looked and felt nice after using it. But, does it do miracles for me? I don't think so.. I didn't like the paper-like sheet, by the way.

I've been using Missha FTE long enough now to be able to review it. It's a great watery like product. I use it with my hands (no cotton pad) after cleansing and toning my face, twice a day. It makes my skin smooth and soft. I hope, after more time I will see more significant effects.

It's a solid mask. The watery essence gives your skin a refreshing feeling and makes the face look light and clean. I like it that there's a lot of leftover essence in the pouch, so that you can use it on your arms, neck or "refill" the mask when it starts to dry out. I do recommend it.

I love this gel. It's a perfect last step in my daytime routine. It's light, absorbs well and leaves the skin moist. I have just ordered my third piece. Perfect for normal and oily skins. 

I really like using this product. It moisturizes my skin, yet is not heavy at all - its formula is watery. No scent at all which is a plus. Great product which makes my pores looking tighter.

Amazing product! My skin felt smooth and renewed after washing it off. Great way to prepare your face for a sheet mask or a heavier serum. I also enjoyed the citrus scent.

Hada Labo offers great products. This particular one is no exception. It moisturizes and makes the skin plumper. I used it with my hands - spilt a few drops and pat them on the skin. I think people with dry skin will benefit more than those with oily, it could be too rich for the latter. 

This wash off mask always gives me a fresh and clean skin. I usually put it only on my T-zone as it tends to get oily. I noticed that after washing it off, my nose had no blackheads. It's not a permanent effect but lasts for couple of days. Good mask!

This is one the masks that I really love. Great fit, great watery essence and my skin looks so fresh and plump after taking it off. It's a great day mask as it doesn't leave any film or sticky feeling. I'm so disappointed it's being discontinued. 

In general TonyMoly's sheet masks are affordable and very decent. This one was no exception. A thin sheet (be careful not to tear it while unfolding), loads of essence and moist and bright skin after using. There was no wow factor but it's nice to usr this one from time to time. 

Honey AIO ampoule is supposed to serve as the whole routine - from toner to cream. I sometimes use it this way but most of the times I put it on my face just as any other serum/ampoule - before the cream. I really like it, apart from the stickiness, it makes my skin moist and happy. I also appreciate the lovely scent.
