Review: Leaders Labotica Honey Skin Soft Mask

In the morning, I decided to use this sheet mask since my skin was quite dull particularly this morning since I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately… due to personal stress in my life. Anyways, this was very cooling on the skin once applied after my cleanser and toner. It was filled with essence and smelled quite good considering it was honey. I left this on for about twenty minutes before removing it. My skin was drenched in essence so I let that absorb for a bit and then rubbed it into my skin. It wasn’t sticky or anything and left my skin beaming like it claimed to do.

Monthly Empties: August 2018

❤ – like, 🙄 – eh, & 👎🏻 – dislike

1. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, really enjoyed this cleansing butter for about a month and couple weeks. I used this religiously as my pre-cleanse before going in with a water cleanser. Initially, it felt weird compared to other cleanser I’ve used since it came in a solid form but after awhile, I got used to it and it smells so good. My skin always felt super smooth after using this instead of it feeling like it stripped moisture from my skin, definitely will purchase this. ❤

2. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, was a good sunblock to use when my family and I went to Honolulu, Hawaii a couple weeks ago. We used the whole bottle up and we all loved the smell and lightweight watery formula of the sunscreen. We used it everyday when we went to the beach in Hawaii and we were out for hours and did not get sunburnt at all but it could also been we were in the water a lot? I’m not sure but it was a good sunscreen. Definitely will purchase the full size of this.  ❤

3. Benefit Cosmetics Eye It’s Potent! Eye Cream, lasted me for quite awhile keep in mind this is a deluxe sample and not a full size but it lasted me for about a month too. You need the tiniest amount of this product because a little goes a long way. It’s super moisturizing and has a faint scent to it but nothing too overpowering which I like a lot. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave my eye area oily. I will definitely purchase this too.  ❤

4. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream, was a good face moisturizer for me to use at night. It definitely was a bit thicker than the original ultra repair face moisturizer that I finished up last month. It did have a similar smell to that one too but the interesting part is that I did feel like my face was firmer when using this cream. I enjoyed this cream a lot and will purchase in the full size as well.  ❤

5. Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel Cream, this works wonders but for me personally, I did not enjoy how scented it was one my face. I felt like whenever I wore this I couldn’t stand the smell so I just washed it off. Maybe that’s just my opinion though and others might like it but it was a pass for me. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this. 👎🏻

Review: Sephora Collection Pearl Face Mask

I decided to use this Sephora collection sheet mask later on in the night because I felt like using something that was heavily drenched in essence. Same as how I reviewed the Sephora Collection Lotus Face Mask this one also had a pink mesh that held the sheet mask in tack. I applied this onto my face and to my surprise out of all the face masks I’ve tried this one fits my face pretty good. I’m not sure if pearl is suppose to smell kind of heavily fragrant but it smelled okay. I left it on my face for about fifteen minutes as the mask had instructed. It definitely left my face feeling super dewy like it claimed to do. It did help eliminate my raised bumps on my face so that’s a good sign that this sheet mask work. I definitely, enjoyed the face mask but the scent not so much.

Review: Tony Moly I’m Green Tea Layering Mask

For my morning routine, I decided to use this sheet mask that I bought awhile back just to get to the minimum purchase to use a coupon ha. This is an interesting mask because it’s a layering mask that comes with two steps. The first step comes with a mesh film that covers the green tea slice patch and you remove it and there are four green tea slices, two of them are smaller and the other two are a bit larger. You place these four slices onto dry and rough skin. Once those are applied, you go to step two and places the regular sheet mask over the slices. The sheet mask itself, was very thin so you got to be careful not to rip it apart when opening it. It was heavily drenched in green tea essence as well. The smell is amazing since I enjoy the smell of green tea. It says to leave the mask on for ten to twenty minutes and I left it on for twenty minutes before removing everything off. I pat in the excess essence into my skin and let it absorb. It just claims to help with dry and rough skin and it definitely hydrated my rough patches around my chin and nose area. Overall, wonderful mask leaving the skin moisturized and dewy.

Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Rice Mask Sheet Clear Skin

Yesterday night, I was pretty much knocked out ’cause I had a long day. Anyways, this will be the last of my Tony Moly I’m Real sheet mask series as I only bought a few to try out and I feel like I have an idea of what the sheet masks feel on my skin. This one is for clear skin but claims to leave the skin feeling dewy and glowing like most of the other sheet mask claims to do. It was heavily drenched in essence as always, and you can always store the excess essence and put it in the fridge and use it the next day. It’s a paper cotton texture sheet mask that is lightweight. I left it on for about twenty minutes before removing it off. It definitely left my skin dewy like it claimed to do. Overall, good sheet mask and I love anything that smells like rice just the scent is good.

Monthly Empties: July 2018

I definitely slacked off on my skincare for the past couple of weeks and only managed to finish two empties but expect more to come for my august empties!

❤ – like, 🙄 – eh, & 👎🏻 – dislike

1. Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion, although it’s marketed as a cleansing lotion on the back of the packaging it talks about how it’s a toner. I’ve been using it as a toner for a couple weeks now and it’s been good. I definitely love the scent of seaweed just brings you back to the sea literally. It’s been a good toner and I do notice the dirt and stuff that is on the cotton pad after I have swept my face. It’s definitely a great toner and I would repurchase this 100% ❤

2. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Moisturizer, felt like I’ve been using this since forever because it lasted me for so long and you only need a tiny amount of this and it completely hydrates your entire face. I love love this product and have already repurchased it. I love that this moisturizer is barely scented and leaves my skin feeling dewy and not sticky at all. Even my brother loves this moisturizer and we both have different skin type but it works for both and is amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good moisturizer that is barely scented. ❤

Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Charcoal Mask Sheet Pore Care

My morning sheet mask of the day, since I did a pore strip on my nose last night so in my head I think this will help even more with my pores somehow. Ha, the things I do anyways, I decided to use this and all it claims to do is to help with pore care? So I’m guessing it’s suppose to minimize my pores or does something to help with it not quite sure but it was definitely, hydrating and overly drenched with essence. I left it on for a bit longer than usual and it left my skin super dewy and smooth. It doesn’t really smell like charcoal just a light mild scent of something that I can’t quite pinpoint what it is. Whatever it is, it smells divine to me but overall a good mask.

Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Rose Mask Sheet Vitalizing

I decided to use this for the night just because it’s vitalizing and I haven’t got enough sleep lately because my thoughts keep me up at night. Anyways, my usual skincare routine is posted right before this post so please kindly, check that out :). I took this sheet mask and placed onto my face for about twenty minutes or so and it smells amazing since most things that are rose scented is way too overpowering for me but this wasn’t. It was heavily drenched in essence even after removing it off of my face. I rubbed the excess in and felt that it definitely moisturized my face and kept it glowing than my dull face usually. I loved that it left my skin feeling fresh and not sticky at all.

Current Skincare: 11-step routine

1. Pre Cleanse: The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

This retails for $16 alone but I was able to snag this at TJ MAXX it came with two travel mini eye makeup removers for $9.99. I had to get it because it was at an amazing price and Christine from @christineincolorbeauty on Instagram raved about how good this product was. It definitely lives up to her expectations as well as mine. There is only about half of this product left and it just feels so good on the skin alone and once you rinse it off your skin is baby smooth. I use this as my first cleanse before using my water cleanser.

2. Water Cleanser: Tatcha The Deep Cleanse

I received a deluxe sample of this from Tatcha awhile ago and only got to using this now and wow it is amazing. It’s not like any other cleanser I’ve used it’s interesting because it has these exfoliating luffa fruit like tiny beads that leaves your skin super smooth once you rinse everything off. I like that it is gentle and not harsh on my skin at all and it smells amazing. Usually, I’m not a fan of heavily scented things but this is just the right amount.

3. Exfoliator: Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash Off

I definitely am a huge fan of Skinfood products as this is my third mask wash off I’ve tried from them. I have yet to try their honey and coconut one and I plan to purchase those one next after I’m done using this one. I use this about once or twice a week depending on how many blackheads/pores I have on my nose. If it’s a bit harsh all you gotta do is add a bit of water but it works wonder and smells amazing if you love strawberry scented things. My nose is usually super soft afterwards and I notice less visible blackheads/pores.

4. Toner: Son & Park Beauty Water and Skin Toner

I’m still using the same toner as my previous skincare routine post. I literally love this toner because it lives up to the hype that everyone is talking about. I love that it’s multipurpose and leaves a beautiful scent on the skin. It leaves my skin hydrated and not stripped like other toners I’ve tried out.

5. Essence: COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

I’m still using the same essence and honestly, I love this essence because it feels like a hydrating serum compared to other essence that are a watery consistency. This one is made of snail mucin so it is kind of sticky once you pump a little bit onto the palm of your hand but once rubbed onto the face it absorbs quickly. It’s definitely worth the money as I’ve been using this for quite sometime now.

6. Serum: iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum

I’m still using this serum and it lasted me for quite a while now and it’s amazing. I love that it absorbs into the skin quickly and definitely has a mild scent to it which I love in any product pretty much. I’m literally 2/3 done with this product and hope to try out other serums from this brand. It’s so hydrating on my dry skin and definitely not sticky once it absorbs into the skin.

7. Sheet Mask: TonyMoly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet

My sheet mask always change because I’m always excited to try out new sheet that are out there. This happens to be the one I’m using this morning and it’s amazing just like other TonyMoly masks I’ve tried. Most of them claims to be radiant, glowing, and moisturizing and they all live up to that expectations. It smells so good cause it’s avocado. I love sheet masks, if you don’t know what to get me personally, I would say sheet masks.

8. Eye Cream: Benefit Cosmetics It’s Potent Eye Cream

I got a deluxe sample of this and been trying it out and I’m loving it. It’s watery and absorbs quickly into the skin and it does have a mild scent but can’t pinpoint what but it smells good. It’s a great eye cream in my opinion and I hope to purchase the larger size of it next. You only need a tiny amount of it, a little goes a long way because I’ve been using this tiny jar for quite sometime and still have a lot of product in it.

9. Moisturizer: iUNIK Beta Glucan Daily Moisture Cream

I ran out of my first aid beauty moisturizer so it was time to test this one out from iUNIK. It smells amazing since iUNIK uses natural ingredients and it’s kind of like a light fruity scent. It has quite the same formula as my favorite first aid beauty one. It definitely hydrates my face and absorbs quickly into the skin. It leaves no residue behind and leaves the skin looking healthy and glowing. It’s a great moisturizer at an amazing price point.

10. Sunscreen: Missha Mild Essence Sun Milk SPF 50

Low behold, still using this sunscreen it lasts a long time but I’m 2/3 almost finish with it. Definitely, thinking about repurchasing this again because I love the scent even though it’s kind of overpowering but that disappears after it’s set onto your skin. I love the watery consistency and that it’s SPF 50.

11. Facial Spray: Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

I literally have a tiny amount left of this product just because it’s that good. I love using this before my moisturizer recently because apparently moisturizer soaks into the skin when it’s wet better. But I use this whenever I want a wake me up as well as before and after my skincare routine just because it’s a good mist. I love that it hydrates my skin and it smells wonderful.

P.S. I love updating my skincare routine and posting about them so I can look back and see what kind of products I’ve tried and how far I have come with my skincare routine. I’m more of a skincare junkie than a makeup junkie. I love trying, testing, and reviewing skincare products and hope you guys enjoy it too.

Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet Nutrition

I decided to use this sheet mask this morning since avocado just seems amazing to get my day started to begin with. I did my usual skincare routine before applying this onto my face. I left it on my face for about thirty minutes before removing it off of my face. It was still drenched in essence even though I left it on my face longer than usual. I loved that it smelled like avocado and it was super hydrating on my skin. The excess essence I rubbed it into my skin and let it sit until it absorbed it all up. Great mask just like the other tony moly masks I’ve tried.
