Monthly Empties: February 2019

❤ – like, 🙄 – eh, & 👎🏻 – dislike

1 & 2. Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Ultra Hydrating Micellar Cleansing Water & Yes to Cotton Protects & Minimize Irritation Comforting Micellar Cleansing Water, both I love to use especially in the morning as my pre cleanse before moving onto with my cleanser and sometimes when I’m really lazy to use a cleanser I just use this in place of my cleanser. Both are super hydrating micellar water that I personally use with a cotton pad to sweep across my face like I would when using a toner. They come in other scent with targeted areas for the skin as well. Definitely, will be repurchasing. ❤

3. Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rosewater, I’ve had this for like a year and a half or something before finishing up the bottle which is amazing! I love this facial spray and I love how it’s so multipurpose like I use this after a hot shower, when I’m feeling hot, when I need some sort of spray to wake myself up a bit, and before and after makeup as a setting spray. I love that it comes with so much product at an affordable price too. They have other scented sprays as well that you can try out and my most favorite scent from them is the facial spray with aloe, cucumber, and green tea one. I’ve already repurchased one of a different scent. ❤

4. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, is the most incredible lip sleeping mask I’ve ever tried and only one to be honest. I mostly use it as a lip balm too and carry it around with me wherever I go just because I love how moisturized it makes my lip feel. I love the berry scent! I got this with one of the Sephora gift set I got awhile ago, so this was a deluxe sample size but I’ve already repurchased in the full size although it’s quite pricey it’s definitely worth it in my opinion, a little goes a long way. ❤

5. iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum, a super smooth and relaxing serum for the skin after essence of course. It doesn’t really have a scent and it makes the skin feel super smooth and non irritant when I use it. I love that it honestly, faded some of my acne scar with continue use. It is really moisturizing and also brightens up the skin complexion. I definitely will repurchase once I finish up my other serums that I have but it is an amazing product and it lasted for such a long time when I use this as my morning serum and night serum. ❤

6. Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash Off, the last out of the three sugar mask I’ve tried from them. I heard they came out with a Honey and Coconut scented one awhile ago so definitely have to pick those up once I finish up my other exfoliators I have in my skincare drawer. I love that it smells like fresh strawberry an artificial scent but still smells wonderful and leaves the skin feeling super smooth after using. I definitely use these mask wash off as an exfoliator but you could also use it as a mask! If it’s a bit harsh pro tip is to add a little bit of water and it won’t be too abrasive on the skin. ❤

Review: Afterday A Better Day Olive Sheet Mask

I got back around 4pm after training and it was just a long day watching lots of videos about the company and doing interactive quizzes for awhile but tomorrow will be on the job training so I’m excited for that. I started my nighttime routine using this sheet mask to moisturize my skin and calm it since I was super stress/nervous this morning but things turned out to be fine but that’s anxiety for you… sometimes you just stress to an extent for nothing basically. This mask was drenched in essence that it was dripping as I was taking it out of the packaging. Same paper cloth sheet material which adheres to the skin super well so I love it, and I feel like it fits to my face almost perfectly which made it even more comfortable and exciting to wear. This scent smelled good but I’m not really sure what an olive is suppose to smell like personally… so let me know if any of you tried this out and it smells like Olive. I left this sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before removing it off of my face. I patted in the excess essence and let it sit and absorb for a bit. I noticed that it hydrated my skin and left it dewy and the great thing about this mask is that it doesn’t leave any weird residue after using this.

Review: Afterday A Better Day Green Tea Sheet Mask

I woke up this morning feeling excited/nervous at the same time. It’s been awhile since I’ve had that feeling. I’ve been applying to jobs after jobs that have to due with my career but no luck yet, so instead of sitting around and waiting I decided to apply to other jobs outside of my career as well. I got interviewed and accepted into a retail store and start training as of today. Anyways, I woke up and did my normal morning skincare routine and decided to use this sheet mask since green tea alway smells good and you can never really get a sheet mask that doesn’t smell somewhat to green tea. This mask was heavily drenched in essence as well as it was dripping everywhere while I was unraveling it. It’s the same paper cloth material sheet mask as well. This mask claims to be balancing and help with wrinkles so we’ll see if it lives up to it’s claim. I left this sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before taking it off. I patted in the excess essence and I could tell that it was very hydrating and soothing on the skin. I’m not sure about the wrinkles… I think I’ll have to keep using this sheet mask a couple times to tell if it does anything for the skin. It definitely balanced out my skin tone though and left my skin dewy.

Review: Afterday A Better Day Açaí Berry Sheet Mask

For the nighttime skincare routine I’m using this firming and healthy skin sheet mask in the scent Acai Berry and it smells so good and pretty accurate like other Acai Berry masks I’ve tried in the past. It’s the same paper cloth material and was heavily drenched in essence. It was very cooling and moisturizing on the skin too. I left this mask on for about twenty minutes before taking it off. I patted the excess essence into my skin and let it sit and absorb for a bit. It left no sticky residue like most fruit sheet masks I’ve tried. It left my skin glowing and hydrated. My skin did feel a bit firming as well so it matches up to it’s claims.

Review: Afterday A Better Day Egg Sheet Mask

I woke up early and did my usual morning skincare before applying this sheet mask onto my face. This scent smells good but definitely not an egg scent ha. It was heavily drenched in essence that once applied to the face, it dripped down my neck a couple of times since it had a lot of excess essence. Same paper cloth sheet mask as the previous two masks I’ve used from this line and same claims as the previous one. I left this sheet mask on my face for about twenty minutes before removing it. It definitely moisturized my dry patches and left a dewy look on the skin. It didn’t take long for it to absorb into my skin after patting the essence. It didn’t leave any sticky residue or anything either.

Review: Afterday A Better Day Bamboo Sheet Mask

During, my nighttime skincare routine I used the Bamboo sheet mask. It claims to be moisturizing and firming sheet mask. Same paper cloth sheet mask that is heavily drenched in essence and smells artificial but it’s a pleasant scent. It was very cooling on the skin but it could also be the cold rainy day weather here in the PNW. I left this sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before removing it. I rubbed the excess essence into my skin and let it sit and absorb. It did not leave any sticky residue or anything which is always a plus, cause some mask tends to leave a residue. It left my skin feeling super smooth and hydrated. I feel like it lives up to it’s claim since I did feel my skin tightening a bit but also moisturized.

Review: Afterday A Better Day Avocado Sheet Mask

I woke up this morning feeling bleh, anyone else out there that have those days? Where you just wake up and feel so unmotivated and things aren’t going your way? I guess today, is one of those days for me. Anyways, I did however got up and did my morning skincare routine. I decided to test out this sheet mask line called Afterday, A Better Day Avocado Sheet Mask. The packaging is aesthetically pleasing though, just look at how clean and everything is about the packaging. It’s a paper sheet mask and it was heavily drenched in essence but the scent did not smell like avocados to me. It’s a very mild scent so it doesn’t bother me. It claims to be moisturizing and enriching on the skin. I left this sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before removing it off of my face. I rubbed in the excess essence and honestly, it lives up to it’s claim with no sticky residue or anything.

Review: Baroness Purifying Lily Flower Mask Sheet

The last of my flower mask sheet from baroness. I enjoyed the previous flower masks so I know I would love these one as well. The claims on this mask is to provide moisture and smoothness to the skin like the other masks sheet I’ve tried. They are well drenched in essence and is paper cloth sheet mask that adheres to the skin super well. It’s always cooling once applied onto cleaned skin. It smelled like a floral scent but I don’t really know what a Lily flower is suppose to smell like so I’m unsure on how accurate the scent is but if anyone knows, please let me know (: I’ll really appreciate it. I left this sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before removing it off of my face. I rubbed the excess essence into my skin and let it sit for a bit. It left my face feeling moisture and smooth without any residue. I recommend these sheet masks as well as they are only $1.90 a piece and they smell good.

Review: Baroness Revitalizing Peony Flower Mask Sheet

During my morning routine, I always double cleanse and use toner before applying a sheet mask as that is what most masks would usually state before applying the sheet mask on. This mask smelly really good but I’m not quite sure if it smells exactly like a peony but it’s definitely a pleasant scent though. The mask was drenched in essence and once applied to the face it felt very cooling in the morning and it wakes you up. This claims to be revitalizing and provide moisture and smoothness to the skin like the other masks from this brand claims to do. I left it on for about twenty minutes before removing it. I rubbed in the excess essence and it left my skin feeling hydrated and dewy no sticky residue or anything. It matches up to it’s claim like always.

Review: Baroness Wrinkle Care Rose Flower Mask Sheet

Continuing with the flower mask sheet I’m using this one that is for wrinkle care tonight. It claims to provide moisture and smoothness to the skin. It was heavily drenched in essence and is the same paper cloth face mask material. It smelled like some sort of floral scent but does not smell like roses to me but that’s just my personal opinion. It’s very cooling on the skin and has a pleasant scent. I left this mask on for about fifteen minutes before removing it. I rubbed the excess essence into the skin and let it absorb. I rubbed the excess essence all over my body. It did not leave any sticky residue or anything. It definitely left my skin feeling super hydrated and dewy though. I’m not so sure about the wrinkle care as I think I would have to continue to use this product to see if it works or not.
