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

Masks from TheFaceShop, My Beauty Diary, Masqueology, DHC & Amore Pacific Primera

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 willing to overlook the formula and its texture.  It's super moisturizing, my skin does feel really soft and hydrated after using it.  The formula for some masks can feel kind of watery, but not with this one. It's actually a bit thicker and feels quite sticky on the face.  Probably not the greatest feeling, but I can see how that is great for hydrating your skin.

2. TheFaceShop Co-Q10 Essential Mask Sheet



On the back of the package it says: 
"Co-Q10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance in every human cell.  It is involved in key biochemical reactions that produce energy in cells, helping to keep skin supple and facial contours beautiful."

I think this mask is good, but not as moisturizing as the Masqueology one for me.  But honestly, if your skin is not super dry, then this mask is probably just as good as the other one.  The formula is a bit thinner, but it still hydrates your skin and it doesn't feel sticky.  It's fairly inexpensive, so I think it's definitely worth picking up as a staple.  


3. TheFaceShop Salon Effect Ceramide Collagen Mask Powder


This particular mask comes in a powder form.  The package says that it's for all skin types, and that it's formulated with ceramide and botanical collagen for firming and hydrating your skin.  

I didn't particularly enjoy using this mask very much because it requires a bit more work than the regular sheet mask.  It's suppose to give you the salon effect, but from the comfort of your own home.  Maybe it works better for someone that is a bit more patient, but I personally did not like preparing the mix.  You're suppose to mix a packet of this mask powder in 45g (1/4 cup) of warm water, but I must warn you--do not add all the water in at once.  You should probably pour a little bit in at a time and stir...otherwise you will end up with little clumps of powder in your mask, which is what I ended up with.  It was a bit dry, a bit clumpy and my face was a bit itchy while I had the mask on.  Like what my future brother-in-law likes to say--it could be user errors. Regardless of what it is, it's just not the right mask for me.  The unfortunate part is that I bought three packs of this when I saw it at the store, I've gone through two of them already, but there's still another one left.  

4. My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask


I heard that this mask is very popular in Asia .  Unlike the ones above, this particular one is not made in Korea, it's actually from Taiwan.  I've been seeing this brand of masks at some of the local Japanese and Chinese Markets around my area now, so I guess they have gone international.  

I am actually quite impress with this mask, the formula is not too watery and not overly sticky either.  The sheet is a bit sheer, so it doesn't go on as a thick white sheet of mask, which is kind of nice.  It also has 2 slits at the bottom of the mask to provide a better fit around the mouth and jaw area.  It is lightly scented, and it leaves a cooling sensation on the skin. I actually asked a friend to help me look for this when he was in Taiwan, I think he found it at one of the popular beauty/cosmetics store over there.  It came in this cute pink box with 30 pieces of masks  for roughly $18 USD, which basically costs me about $0.60 a mask--not bad at all.  For that price, I think it has excellent quality, and the packaging is cute too.  But I do think the ones that I've seen at the markets over here are more expensive, it costs about $10-$15 for 10 pieces of masks.


That's all for today...I'll try to review the rest of the masks as soon as I try them out!

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…

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it (Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it! 
Why I like the Formula:  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I really did apply it…

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7N Mocha Latte) Review

Oh my gosh, I think this is my favorite Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color so far.  The last couple of times that I decided to dye my hair, I went with the redder shades, they came out nice, but harder to see under certain lighting.

For this coming fall/autumn, I decided to go brown. I bought the Hello Bubble Foam Color in 7N Mocha Latte which came in the new "Girl's Day" packaging-I'm actually not sure who they are, but I'm guessing they are a K-pop group. This product is definitely one of my all time favorite!

This box came with all the usual Hello Bubble Foam Color components; it included the hair colorant, a hair coloring cape/cover, a pair of gloves, and a small packet of conditioner (I prefer to use my own).

From looking at the before and after photos on the box, I did not expect the color to be very noticeable on my hair.  The color itself seemed a little too dark to have any effect on my already dark hair.   To my surprise, this color gave me the most …
