Review: BioRepublic Skincare Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Sheet Mask

If you read my previous morning post, then you can probably guess where I purchased this sheet mask as well. I was lucky enough to spot three different kind of BioRepublic fiber sheet masks at my local Marshalls. Going with my theme, since I used a BioRepublic sheet mask in the morning. I wanted to use one during the night and I chose the Cucumber Breeze as it claims to calm and rejuvenate the skin. After, my double cleanse and toner I placed this sheet mask onto my face. Again, you have to be careful when opening this sheet mask or you might just tear it apart. It smelled like a cucumber and was drenched in essence. I left the sheet mask on for about twenty minutes before removing it. I rubbed the excess essence into my skin. It wasn’t as tacky as other sheet masks I’ve tried so that was good. It definitely, did a good job at hydrating my skin though not so sure about calming my face? I mean I’m always calm and relaxed when I have time for a sheet mask.

Review: BioRepublic Skincare Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask

I just wanted to say I picked up this sheet mask (set of three) at my local Marshalls / TJ MAXX for $3.99 when this set retails for $14.95 alone on their website. So if you happen to be a skincare / sheet mask junkie like me, go check out your local Marshalls / TJ MAXX to see if they have them. Mine had a couple of these laying around and the best part is that they don’t expire till 2020 well, for me at least. You are saving yourself $10.96 if you were to get these online instead. If you were to buy one it would be $4.99 so getting three at $3.99 is a deal you can’t pass on!

I decided to use this sheet mask today, but I did something different. Instead of my usual double cleanse and then toner, I literally did all my skincare routine steps and stopped after applying my serum. I then, placed this sheet mask onto my face. I love the smell of the green tea it just smells heavenly to me. The sheet mask was heavily saturated with essence so that’s a plus and it adhere onto the skin very well too. However, I did find that you have to be super careful with this sheet mask or you’ll end up ripping it. It’s much more delicate than other sheet masks I’ve tried out there for sure. I left it on for about twenty minutes before taking it off and it did wonders for my skin. It hydrated my skin, although it did claim to remove excess sebum but I didn’t really notice anything. But my skin felt super clean and hydrated and that’s what I usually look for in a sheet mask.

Haul: Pixi Beauty x Sudio

I’ve always been a longtime supporter of Weylie. I’ve watched her videos ever since I was a thirteen year old girl and I’m twenty two years old now. When she first came out with her very own eyelashes with Elf Cosmetics the first time around, I bought her lashes even though I don’t know how to wear falsies yet lol. When I found out she was coming out with her very own eyeshadow with Pixi Beauty I went ahead and bought it. Judy had a collaboration with Pixi Beauty awhile back too and I bought both of her curated set with them: eyeshadow palette and a lip palette and I love them. I love it, when my favorite beauty gurus come out with their own products with a company that I love and adore. I love that Weylie’s eyeshadow palette is neutral and shimmery what I can somewhat work with since I don’t really do much with my eyes to begin with. It’s always a bonus because it comes with a dual ended eyeliner.

I know Sudio is not a beauty related item but I just had to mention the brand because I love it so much ever since I got them. I’ve been wearing them nonstop just because they are so lightweight and after X amount of hours I wear them in my ear it doesn’t hurt compared to other earbuds/headphones I’ve tried out. It’s also a much more affordable alternative if you were wanting the beats or powerbeats by Dre. Just a thought, and maybe watch some reviews on Youtube on these earbuds if you want to give it a try. Personally, I love them because it just’s so pretty it’s rose gold and black. It matches my fitbit perfectly ha.

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

Since I used a tony moly mask during the morning I wanted to use another one at night #doublefisting. I decided to use the red wine / pore care one because I’ve noticed my pores are more visible recently. I enjoyed the scent a lot, even though I don’t really know what wine is suppose to smell like, but this smells amazing to me. Again, with most masks I leave it on for about twenty minutes before removing it. I did notice that it didn’t really do much for my pores but maybe if I were to continue to use this mask throughout the week then the results would differ? It wasn’t as tacky so that was good and it definitely left my skin feeling firm and supple which is also something I look for in masks.

Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Tea Tree Mask Sheet Skin Soothing

First off, I just have to say the packaging is so freaking adorable and it’s not a traditional square like what other sheet masks come in. The sheet mask is sealed tight in this packaging. It took me awhile to rip this because it was honestly, kind of hard to rip. I already did my double cleanse and toner before putting on the sheet mask. I chose this in particular because it claims to be soothing and I had very dry skin today. It’s been cold lately and the heater is constantly on, that my skin is starting to develop them dry patches again so this was much needed in the morning. I left it on for about twenty minutes, and then took it off. It left my skin feeling hydrated without really having to pat in the essence. It smells great too. A little tacky, but it goes away a bit after so that didn’t bother me at all.

Monthly Empties: February 2018

I was doing good with my blog until winter break ended and honestly, I didn’t have any empties during the month of January. But as you can tell, during the month of February I hit some empties and I’m proud of it. Let’s get started shall we?

❤ – like, 🙄 – eh, & 👎🏻 – dislike

1. SKIN FOOD rice mask wash off my very first wash off mask ever but honestly, I barely used it as a wash off mask. I enjoyed using this as a mild exfoliator for my dry to normal skin. I loved that it left my skin dewy, smooth, and smelling great after each use. I love that the rice is so finely milled that it doesn’t hurt when I rub it into my skin. Unlike, the black sugar mask which is more harsh for my skin but adding water to it, to exfoliate the skin doesn’t make it so bad. I will definitely repurchase this after I go through the rest of my exfoliators. ❤

2. Boscia sake cleansing water no-rinse makeup remover and cleanser. I got this from my purchase of the Sephora Favorites Soko To Tokyo kit awhile back. I pretty much used this cleanser as a pre-cleanse with a cotton pad before my double cleanse. The only downside about this product is the squirting sometimes, if I applied too much pressure it would kind of dispense the product not onto the cotton pad but onto the bottom surface of the pump. I felt like it wasted product every now and then. I don’t think I would be repurchasing this as I didn’t use it as a no-rinse makeup remover but instead using it as a pre-cleanse product. Plus, it’s kind of expensive and I feel like there might be better alternatives out there. 🙄

3. Mario Badescu enzyme cleansing gel, an interesting product that is great for all skin types. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this when we used this cleanser. It leaves the skin super soft, clean, and well it smells kind of fruity and I love it. It’s super gentle on the skin and I love that. I also love that it doesn’t dry out the skin like other cleansers does. My boyfriend and I both have dry skin especially during the winter months and this leaves our skin hydrated. I definitely plan on purchasing the full size once I use up all my other cleansers. ❤

4. Avene hydrance serum I received this sample from my one month subscription to Birchbox awhile back. This is a great hydrating serum that I liked to use during my morning skincare routine. In my opinion, it’s quite comparable to the first aid beauty serum I emptied awhile back just this one isn’t translucent it’s more of a milky consistency whereas the first aid beauty one was more like a watery consistency but both did the job at hydrating my skin. I plan to repurchase this after finishing up my new serum I’m using at the moment.  ❤

5. Olay regenerist luminous toning perfecting cream moisturizer I received many samples of this from Ulta awhile back and haven’t had the time to use it till this month literally. I used this on a burn that I got and haven’t even noticed till later when it got darker. It honestly, helped heal my burn back to almost my normal skin. I’m pretty sure it’ll work great as a moisturizer but for me, I used it on my hands and it smelled delightful. I probably won’t purchase this just because I have so many other moisturizers I have to get through first. However, I did enjoy the sample while it lasted.❤

6. Clinque moisture surge a sample, once again from Ulta. I mean I thought it was okay. I feel like there are other moistruizers out there that are better but that’s just my opinion. I have a couple of these deluxe sample sizes to get through as well. I wasn’t a huge fan of it but it did it’s purpose as a moisturizer I guess. I probably won’t repurchase this. 🙄

7. Loreal hydra-genius normal/dry skin, I thought it was okay I wasn’t really a big fan of the scent on this moisturizer. It did it’s job as a moisturizer.. but I don’t think I’ll repurchase this product either just because as the reasons stated above. 🙄

8. Garnier moisture bomb again, I thought it was okay as a moisturizer I feel like the clinique, loreal, and this all felt similar. Probably, won’t repurchase either. 🙄

Haul: L’occitane x Rifle Paper Co

I was so excited when this popped up on my Instagram. The cute tin box on the left was free if you were able to go into a L’occitane store and redeem if you had a email coupon. However, I don’t have any L’occitane store near me as I’m usually at my apartment near my university as I’m a college student.

I really wanted this cute curated set before it would run out so I placed an online order instead. You can only get this free if you made a purchase so in order to get this tin box that comes with a hand cream and ultra rich body cream retails for $20 but you get it for free. I bought the soft winter hand set for $8 which comes with a cute pouch and two hand creams and a bar of soap. I bought this and paid $4.95 shipping so the total came out to $12.95 for everything shipped in the picture.

So far I’ve been using the rose hand cream constantly and it smells amazing and I love that it helps moisturize my dry hand but also my cuticle as well. Well worth the purchase if I do say so myself. If you spend $49 you get free shipping but if you can’t justify spending that much maybe buy something cheaper and pay for shipping because in my opinion I think it’s worth it considering the cute tin box retails for $20.
