Face Masks, Hand Mask & Neck Mask Review - Part 2

Sorry it took me a bit longer than anticipated to try all these masks out and review them for you. In the first masks review on June 1st, I talked about Masqueology Cell Renewal Mask, TheFaceShop Co-Q10 Mask, TheFaceShop Ceramide Collagen Mask, and My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask. In this review, I'll try to cover the rest of them if possible.


1. Chidoriya's Nightingale Dropping Mask Powder I'm going to start with this Chidoriya's Nightingale Dropping Mask Powder.  The description for this mask says that it's a natural enzyme of nightingale droppings that removes all trace of dirt and gently exfoliates dead skin.  It's supposed to leave your skin feeling smoother, softer, and brighter.  I think for this particular mask, it's more like a love-hate relationship for me.  I love the result of it, I think it does make my skin feel softer and brighter the next day, but it smells really, really, really bad!  I remember it smelling like urine, not really somethin…

My Favorite Things/Tips For The Summer

Summer is here, I would like to share some tips/products that I think are worth trying out.
(Note: I am not being paid by any of these companies for recommending them, I'm sharing these with you because I truly think they are great products.)

Tip #1:Keep yourself hydrated! We all know that it's very important to stay hydrated, particularly on a very hot day.  If you don't fancy drinking plain water, and is looking for a healthier alternative to quench your thirst, do try this new 100% raw coconut water from Harmless Harvest.  It's the tastiest coconut water in a bottle that I've ever had so far.  I normally do not like the taste of any bottled coconut waters that are out in the market right now, they either taste slightly milky or they have a bunch of additives in them.  This company apparently preserves the authentic flavor of the organic coconuts by using a manufacturing systems of "straight coconut-to-bottle bottling and high pressure processing" which …

Summer is almost here...don't forget to put on your shades

Summer will be arriving in just four days over here...so I started my hunt for a brand new pair of sunglasses.
I don't know about most people, but I still find myself questioning what is the right sunglasses for my face shape.  I decided to look it up, and here is some information that I put together for you.   Hopefully it will come in handy for those that are semi-confused like myself.  

The 4 Basic Face Shapes: Round, Heart, Square, and Oval. 
Round-Shaped Face should look for angular frames that will draw away from the roundness of the face.  What Works: square, rectangular and glasses with high temples. What to Avoid: anything round.  
Heart-Shaped Face should look for frames that will draw away from the wide temple and pointed chin. What Works:bottom heavy frames, round or cat-eye frames, delicate frames such as aviators or other types of wire frames, and glasses with low temples. What to Avoid: styles with a hard straight line across the top, and pointed bottoms.  
Square-Shaped Fa…

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

I've heard of the brand Laneige from a Korean friend a long time ago, but I've never bought or tried their products before.  Recently, while shopping online for an overnight mask, I saw an ad for Laneige at Target.  I'm not sure if it's available at Target's global locations or not, but it's definitely available at a lot of the Target stores in the U.S. (some products are already SOLD OUT!) and it's also available at Target.com.

So that ended my search for the overnight mask, and I decided to buy a Laneige water sleeping mask to try. It costs $23.00 for 80 mL/2.7 FL.OZ, and if you subscribe for an automatic scheduled delivery, you will receive an additional 5% off the price, which is pretty decent.




I received it yesterday and tried it out.   It's not like a traditional sheet mask, this one is a gel mask that comes with a tiny scoop---it doesn't feel sticky when you apply it, and it absorbs very quickly.  Go to sleep with it on, and rinse it off in …

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.  
I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.)

I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if you accidentally smud…

My Favorite Lip Balms

Since I tend to have really chapped lips, I'm always seeking products that will help to hydrate and nourish them.   If the packaging is cute or if it says "limited edition" on it, then that's another plus, and I'm all for it! Thankfully most of these items can be found at the local drugstores or retail chain stores---so they are affordable! Here are some of the products that I really love.
1) For really dry lips, I recommend Blistex Lip Medex.  I've tried many different lip balms already, and I personally love this one the most.  It's inexpensive and it's easy to find.  It should be available at any local drugstores or retail chain stores (Walgreens, Target, Walmart...etc) for under $2.  Not the cutest bottle, but it works!  I like to apply it to my lips during the day or before I get dressed to go out.   By the time I'm finished with everything, my lips are much softer and ready for putting on lipstick.
2) I also like EOS (Evolution of Smooth) sph…

Face Masks, Hand Mask & Neck Mask Review - Part 1

These are all the different types of masks that I have right now. Some of them I have tried already, and some I haven't gotten to yet.  I'm going to review the ones that I've already tried so far...and for the rest of them I will eventually review them in another post.




1. Masqueology Cell Renewal With Snail Secretion Filtrate Mask Sheet
According to the package, this mask is suppose to help in renewing your skin and to restore its moisture.  The key ingredients are hydrolyzed collagen, pomegranate extract, snail secretion filtrate and trehalose.    
I know that "snail secretion filtrate" probably sounds pretty gross to you---I was grossed out by the idea of putting that on my face when I first received this product from my sister.  She knows that I like my masks, so she does her own research and buy me ones that are more interesting and less common...many thanks!
I've tried this one out already, and I must say that it works really well.  So well that I'm …
