Hello everyone ^__^

It’s mask time with Kose Cosmeport.

Bough the product in Japan and the new 30 sheets hyaluronic acid essence mask is ready to boost the moisture and hydration to my skin.

-*-


The packaging is simple yet somehow I doubt when I reach the last masks down there will it be too dry? I guess I need to wait all the way to know the answer, right now, I just keeping it tight closed when not in used.

-*-


All the details is in Japanese, but the mask is simple enough as to be used on a pre-cleansed skin and after a toner/lotion. Leave it of for 5-15 minutes and continue by removing the mask, massage in the leftovers on the skin and add the rest of the skincare, such as moisturizer. If I want to use a serum, I see the texture of the serum first, if it is heavier than the mask, I use it afterwards, but if it is lighter or water based, I use it before the mask.

-*-



Curious to see the mask? Here it is, let’s unfold the mystery.

-*-



Details from

www.kosecosmeport.co.jp:
About a month and use it every day,
Intensive Care mask of beauty essence plentiful.

  • Hyaluronic acid (moisturizing) combination.
  • Liquid cosmetics Shimiwatari the corner layer in the sealing effect of the mask, I lead to skin that is moistened fresh and young.
  • I combine “trehalose derivatives”.
  • In addition to seaweed extract, deep ocean water, add blending trehalose derivatives. Effect increases the moisture further, the deep part of the stratum corneum to penetrate and keep the skin was full of moisture for a long time.
  • Prescription skin-friendly.
  • In addition to weak acid, no fragrance, no coloration, non-alcohol, no mineral oil to. I was kind to skin more.

Open the plastic cover, the cover may be stick and unfold several time, I think 30x would be the correct number.

There’s a transparent plastic inside, remove it first and underneath it is the mask.

-*-



A simple white thin mask, which I yearn for a better quality and thickness. I guess this is a simple product to be used and not necessarily contained a complex ingredients. The main feature is to add hydration (that’s what hyaluronic acid do) and that’s it.

-*-


Haha! I look so unhappy with the mask on. It is difficult to create expression when mask is on. The fitting also not so good on me, I keep having difficulties to get it in the right place. Maybe my face just not wide enough. The essence given is basic, which means it’s just one of the routine in a daily skincare which I don’t think suitable as a weekly treatment, it’s exactly more like a daily mask. Why they make it into a mask, I guess we all know that products do need time to penetrate into our skin and work before the next one put in, this mask helps me to wait before the next one and let the skin have it’s time to absorb the nutrients it need.

Overall,

A simple mask to be used daily, gives the skin a boost of hydration and not made to be used alone, it’s just one of the skincare step, used after toner, lotion and a water based serum. Continue with the rest of the skincare such as oil-based serum, eye cream, moisturizer, sun protection and so on.

The quality of the mask could be better, but for what it’s worth, it does what it says it does.

Hi all!!!

It’s pampering timeeeee. Last week was a very busy week and indulging in a mask can be a bit of luxury moment yet sometime time is not on my side. But with this mask, 5 minutes is enough.

-*-


Details from lancome-usa.com:

If your skin looks dehydrated, this 5-minute moisture facial restores moisture balance.

Diminishes the appearance of dry lines.
Leaves skin looking smooth and perfectly hydrated.

-*-


Carefully examine the how to, use it on a pre-cleansed skin and add the toner. Apply a thick layer, make sure the gel reaches everywhere and leave it on. It does says 5 minutes but I can use it as long as I want, like 15 or even 30 minutes, depends on my availability on that day. The mask can be used daily as well to boost up the hydrating level on the skin until the desired level is achieved.

Do you know where to test your skin hydration level? Many beauty counters have a tool for that, anyone can get a free skin check up, including at Lancome’s. I’ve test mine for the before and after. The skin hydration level does increase after the usage of Hydra Intense Masque.

-*-



The aroma is just wonderful and refreshing, somehow it smells like aqua. The milky light blue gel is cooling on my skin, I use it to help my skin get a hydrating effect before starting the day. Yes, this kind of mask may be used just about anytime during the day . . . or night.

Remove the leftover with a tissue and continue with any moisturizer I have according to my skin’s need at that moment. The skin become so moist and plumped. But the result is not as velvety as mentioned, it’s more to the slippery than velvety. And of left too long and all the gel has lost it’s ‘water’, the skin will become a bit sticky.

-*-



Here are the ingredients:

Hmm, some may have allergic reactions . . . if you experience itchiness, redness, or other form of discomfort, that could be allergy. But so far, I haven’t experience any of that.

-*-




Thank you Lancome Indonesia, you’ve pampered my skin with hydration.

-*-


Hello lovelies,

how are you all? I hope everyone in a tip top condition ^___^

-*-

-*-



The unique ingredients that caters the needs in aging skin with whitening effect is something I look forward to. Last week has been a tough week for me with the surgery and everything, it’s pampering time alright \^0^/

-*-


Inside there’s the package of 1 mask. All the details inside are in Japanese language.

-*-


Please do look up in the net for more details if feels needed.

Me? I just open it up and see what’s inside.

-*-



Wow, an orange colored liquid fills in the mask and feels very juicy.

-*-



The image of the mask is exactly like shown in the website, a thicker middle part for concentrated focus for the upper cheeks all the way to the temple.

-*-



The quality of the mask is wonderful, feels so soft on the touch and on the skin. The liquid feels luxurious and plentiful, it’s a good thing the mask can stay intact to the skin thanks to the cotton ability from the material given. It holds on to the face like a 3D mask, oh well, it is better than a 3D mask in terms of the fitting.

-*-



And the wonderful damask rose aroma is delightful. Calming, comforting and connected to the benefits in the ingredients where it gives the skin anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.

-*-


There are still so many leftovers inside the packaging, I’m not wasting them and drop some on my neck, body and arm ^__^

-*-


After 15-20 minutes the mask feels drier than before and easily detach from the face. My skin looks instantly brighter, no redness, irritation, nor allergic reaction. The feeling is comfortable and hydrated. The skin feels so moist and plump. Hmm, younger and prettier in one session. The team from ASTALIFT Indonesia assured me to try on the mask since the high concentration of products inside the mask. So, you are guaranteed to feel and see faster result.

Tap the excess liquid after removal of the mask, into the skin using the palms. I followed with moisturizer afterwards.

-*-


Oh wait, there’s still some more juice left hold by the mask. I squeezed it and found more drops of formula, wow, generous amount for sure.

-*-


Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia, it is indeed a must try item from your collection.

Hi everyone,

on the previous post I’ve reviewed the series of Astaxanthin from the toner, essence, emulsion and cream (read: HERE). Now, as mentioned in that previous post, there’s one more item that I really want to try, the Moisture Fixer.

The Moisture Fixer is a

-*-

Somehow I’m not that confident in using it as a primer, but still I’ll do that ^__^ and share you some thoughts, however, the main attraction would be Moisture Fixer as a Sleeping Mask.

-*-


Look at that! Isn’t it beautiful? An amber gel form which resemble an almost set jell-o and all it’s glory. I do play with it for a while and until you actually look at it and personally scoop it out and yes, play with the product, where then you’ll see exactly what I meant.

-*-



When scoop out in a quick way, it will act like an agar, but when gently pour down, it will slowly melts and drips like honey.

-*-


It is the most interesting texture. I wonder how they made it like that and why and all the history behind the making. I hope someday all my questions are answered. For now, I’m just enjoying the product ^__^

-*-


I put it on a cleaned skin and let them do it’s magic. Again, when gently put on the gel will slowly melts and able to be distributed well on the skin. I think if it used as a primer after a cream, I have to melt them well at my palms before touching the facial skin.

-*-


This is me after 30 minutes using Moisture Fixer.

At first, the gel feels cool where then there’s this warm sensation. I let the whole family to try on this mask, my mom, dad, hubby and sister. We all experience the exact same thing when all our skin type is differ by far. The skin gets rejuvenating effect waking up in the morning. I don’t experience abundant moisture but perhaps when used with the whole series the moisture will stay intact inside the film it created.

Overall,

By using the moisture fixer alone the skin get a warm feeling, the smell is light and a bit citrus zing at the end, the lovely texture is fun to put on the skin and application also easy once the gel is melted. I did massage it a bit before leaving it on around 30 minutes or so before bedtime so it wont stick anywhere else but my face.

The sleeping mask gives the skin a bouncy and firming effect (yes, all of us experience that as well), which means this is the perfect item for aging skin in terms of sagging. The rejuvenating effect also so lovely like the skin somehow become younger and healthier overnight.

In terms of being a primer, the honey golden gel helps a sticky foundation become looser blends everything before setting it finely. Wait for the skin become touch-ably dry before adding some powder.


Hi everyone,

this item is no stranger in the beauty world, I have know and used it around 5 years now and the Sleeping Pack has gain favors from a lot of customers and reviewers around the world.

-*-

This is the travel size edition.

Laneige philosophy are based on water, where hydrated skin is the best condition skin. Plump, dewy and visibly moist. Ms. Song, the brand ambassador is famous for her youthful skin, perfect for Laneige image where proper hydration can keep the skin young and healthy.

-*-



Now, before starting with any of your skincare regime, make sure to clean your hands even thou’ starting the regime with cleansing. So the product may do they job precisely at facial area. Imagine the hands already so dirty, the cleansing agent already so busy cleaning the hands before even touching the face. This cutie is an antibacterial hand soap which I use before taking care of the face.

-*-


Now, let’s move on to Laneige Water Sleeping Pack _ EX, all product details from www.laneige.com.

After the face is cleaned, you may use toner/lotion and then apply the Sleeping Pack generously to the whole area, for me I like to massage them a bit before leaving them on. Just make sure all the wonderful slightly creamy gel is distributed and there’s a thin layer left after massaging.

-*-



The night time hydrating system will help the skin to regenerate, rehydrate, boosting their performance and adding moist to the skin so the lines are filled up. The skin become elastic and this is what we called young.

You may read the ingredients and other benefits directly from the website and I’ll share with you my personal experience in using it.

-*-





I remember vividly as 5 years ago, I’m still in my 20’s I use the Sleeping Pack and waiting for the pack to be absorbed, or at least sunk in the skin, so I can twist and turn during bedtime. Little that I know back then that a little massaging action goes along the way. And 30 minutes before bedtime also helps in making sure the pack has set, so most of the nutrients ended up absorbed by my facial skin instead of by the pillows.

-*-




I love the texture of something imitating a gooey-ness, the light blue milky color and faint scent is suitable for introducing a night full of wonderful dreams and waking up looking hydrated, fresh and ready for the day.


 Hello everyone!!!

It’s Belif time! I’m still reviewing their mask, which all begins with First Aid as the mask are the concentrated formula and gives instant result for me.

Details from http://global.belifcosmetic.com
First Aid – Overnight Brightening Mask

Formulated with black truffle, one of the world�s finest delicacies, along with amber, pearl, and gold powder capsules, and completed with Napiers white formula, this overnight brightening mask brings transparency and radiance to skin while you sleep.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Triethanolamine.

To Use

After toning, gently apply a thin layer to face avoiding the eye and mouth area. Leave it on overnight and wash off with water or foaming cleanser the next morning.
-*-




I’m a big fan of overnight mask, some does works well, some doesn’t. The one that doesn’t usually feels greasy on the skin and oily, so instead of hydration or other kind of benefit, it turns sticky and uncomfortable to be used, especially when I want to take a rest at night. There’s one time I’m using a sleeping mask, but the overwhelming scent really bothers me.

Now, how about belif;s First Aid Overnight Brightening Mask?

-*-






The white creamy gel, which feels like a snow on the skin, easily melted and so soft on the skin. I love the scent of belif’s products and this one is no exception. Like comforting herbs. the tiny golden beads also burst easily with a mere simple massaging action. The product didn’t cause any stickiness nor greasy on the skin, for me the sensation is light, fresh and relaxing.

-*-




The next day the skin wakes up with a dewy and moist complexion with transparency. It does helps out brighten the look and clears up appearance.

Overall, Overnight Brightening Mask is a snug and cozy mask to be used overnight on a cleansed face, and massage the lovely creamy gel a bit to the formula spread evenly on the skin. And take a deep breath before relaxing and dozing. Try to keep the face upward and sleeps without turning sideways or backwards. The mask will easily absorbed within 30 minutes, so sometime I do put the mask 30 minutes before bed time so all the mask already sets in on the skin.

Wakes up and do the routine of cleansing the skin and notice a brighter skin within. Use it twice a week regularly and get a luminous skin gradually.


Hello ladies,

here’s another face mask from Love More, a pink My Melody that helps the skin to be fairer in a 3D shaped mask.

-*-



A super duper cute packaging, Sanrio fans will surely collects.

-*-


Here’s the details given on the back side, can’t seem to read it?

Read the details provided by secretive.sg:

I found My Melodies to be irresistible, after all she is my favorite character in Hello Kitty’s rings of fellowship \^0^/


The usage of this mask is simple and like any other facial mask, use it on a cleansed skin and some may add toner too.

-*-


And then let this 3D mask do it’s magic by getting fitted to the skin and chin part, chin? Yes, chin.

-*-


The 3D means the mask are unable to be pulled out straight as the 3D shape will bend some of it parts so it will be a perfect fit to the skin. It is better than conventional shaped mask but still a bit too big for my tiny face.

The quality of the sheet is remarkable as it was thick and feels like cotton. So soft and gentle to the skin. So does the formula. Friendly to the skin, thick and so wet. There are plenty of  ‘juices’ as there’s no way in 30 minutes the mask become dry, it probably took around an hour to be dried. There even so much leftovers inside the packaging which I refuse to throw it away and apply them on my neck, arms, and legs ^__^

-*-

Result? The skin does become whiter as in fairer, but it need regular usage to get rid of dark spots. The mask also add moist effect on the skin and no need rinsing the leftovers, I continue the skincare regime by adding serum and moisturizer. I feel that the mask best used at night when the skin is resting or about to rest.

The packaging is cute, full of instruction and details.

Many benefits seems to be offered by the simple mask.

-*-




The refreshing purple decorated the whole packaging.

-*-


Customer are surely easy to find all the necessary details since literally everything lay out openly. Amethystory is also the same company with Ginvera, a body care brand.

-*-


The cream smells like a cotton candy flavored milk, or cupcake vanilla, or sweet dessert, or . . . well you got the idea. The smell is so sweet, like powdery sweet. For the whole 30 minutes the skin smell like that milky marshmallow.  This is either a love it or hate it scent. Me? I’m definitely being honest by saying depends on my mood. When I have a sweet tooth cravings and on a diet, this mask will be a perfect solution, I didn’t get a calorie hence a beautiful skin instead.

The feeling during usage is comfortable, no sting, allergic reaction, itchiness, redness, or other form of discomfort. The skin become slippery and does feel pampered when the mask is on. Somehow I do feel relaxed as the mask is cooling down the facial skin. I wonder if the mask can be used in other part of the body as well.

I’m cleaning the mask using water and a konjac sponge, if you’re not using a sponge, splash the face with water first as the yogurt mask is a bit dry and harden here and there (not hard as a brick, more like jell-o after left overnight). Massage it a bit with water, before rinsing them all out.

The result is a fairer looking skin, feels so moist and bouncy without being greasy nor oily. Hydrated, plumped and looks like mochi ^__^


Hi gorgeous,
on weekly basis mask is one of the thing that enhance the skin performance. Wide variety of choices sometime does make picking them into an ample homework plus the trial and errors seems endless. I often went to brands that I knew well and start from there. My skin is sensitive and wont easily give up to just any mask.

Belif is one of the brand that I trusted and love. The series of masks are called First Aid and it comes in different variation accordingly.

This time I’ll review the Deep Pore Care Mask.

Details from

Product Description

A green clay mask with a deep cleansing effect. Natural French Green Clay and Raspberry leaf extract with pore-minimizing properties thoroughly penetrates pores to remove excess sebum and impurities.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.

To Use

Use once or twice a week. After cleansing and toning skin, apply a thin layer and gently smooth over face avoiding the eye and mouth area. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm, then cool water.


Review

The thick clay colored somewhat between grey and whitish brownish grey. The smell is lovely and away from yucky. Smooth and easily distributed on a clean face, you may apply a toner right before the mask or spray some facial spritz. Then let the clay work by keeping yourself rested for 10-20 minutes.

The clay will slightly harden and the skin feel a bit pull. For me the experience is pleasing. I didn’t feel any negative reactions (such as allergy, pain, discomfort, etc). After the minutes are up I clean the mask with a warm water and careful not to overly stripped the mask away, just splash a few times until the clay is start to loosen up and let the water soaks the hardened part before using a gentle sponge/cotton/just your finger tips and gently remove the clay away. I feel the cleanliness on the skin, like the pores are getting their-selves purified.

Splash a cold water and have your skin tightens. It was a wonderful experience and I can see my self using the mask on a weekly basis to keep them fresh, clean and less clogged pores.





Hi babes,

I am in love with belif, and lately they re-assuring me to keep being in love with their stuffs.

Details from http://global.belifcosmetic.com

Product Description

A fresh, clear, gel soothing mask that calms and relieves sensitive and stressed skin. Formulated with Chamomile that has a powerful calming effect and Xylitol soothing capsules that prevent skin troubles.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.

To Use

When your skin needs soothing, gently apply to the entire face after skin toner. Keep the mask in the refrigerator for about five minutes for an extra cooling sensation, which will calm your tired skin and reduce facial swelling in the evening or the next morning after a night out.
I know for sure I’m hooked just by reading on the details. Being a mom and beauty blogger plus a full time housewife means, sleeping is indeed one of life’s greatest treasure that often so damn difficult to get. Waking up so early in the morning while spending the night before writing is just my normal activity. Events and go-to’s is like adding more to-do’s in my routine which in the beginning already so full. If my chores has a checklist, it is endless . . . literally.

So, I need this thing, I need this mask badly and it never hurt that they come in the most skin friendliest possible. Simple, pure and delightful.

Those tiny dots are not blurs, it was the white dots mentioned in the details as xylitol soothing capsules. The gel? Those clear cooling gel is temptations, if they have one in a bathtub size, I’m definitely going in.

Always put this mask inside the fridge and get that invigorating icy cold gel that’s not just anti-hangover but waking you up in an instant. Like a cold compress. Imagine a hot lazy day when people feels so un-energized due to the heat. This mask will make everyone says, “Hello, I’m ready!”

 

I’m using it on a cleaned tones face. Best to be used on an exhausted face and see the amazing instant result.

The gel is super cool and feels so good on the skin. I love the calming herbal scent.

 

As I applied generally and making sure all the parts get some action, the xylitol is bursting and disappearing. Waiting 10-15 minutes is meaningless, the mask is super comfortable 30 minutes usually flies away in a zippy.

The gel will dries up and a bit sticky, I usually rinse them off with water (room temp). And the result?

A perkier skin. Literally. I can feel a pull outwardly and it gives my skin  . . . perk-effect. Firm and away from those hangover/lose sleep/exhausted and tiredness. I can feel the skin getting tighter and it looks tighter too. This is wonderful. I understand why they are called Anti-hangover soothing mask, for it’s soothing abilities, comforting and wake the skin up to be ready for the day.

Must try and must have as well!

The mask can be used in the morning to wake you up. At day time when the sun is scorching hot and be cool. In the afternoon when you want to relax and take a nap, then waking up with a very energetic skin. At night before a date or a romantic night and you don’t want to be looked like crap exhausted. This mask is amazing and how or when or who you want to use it by/with is just a matter of creativity and everything is possible. Love ’em!
