The Face Shop Real Nature Mask Sheet Honey

Product Review: The Face Shop Real Nature Mask Sheet Honey

This is one of The Face Shop’s many traditional cotton sheet masks in many different scents and featured ingredients. It costs about CAD$2 (they have specials sometimes, 10 for $10 or with free masks), and each contains 23 G /0.8 OZ of essence, noticeably less than their more expensive masks which contain 30ml or more essence in each mask.  Read more…

The History of Whoo Ja Saeng Essence Gift Set

Product Review: The History of Whoo Bichup Ja Saeng Essence Gift Set

The History of Whoo’s Jinyul line is created for women 40 years and up, and is a nourishing line perfectly suited for more mature, dry skin (which lacks oil as skin ages). I am not yet in this age range, although my skin is very dehydrated. Knock on wood, I don’t have any sagging skin or loss of firmness yet, but my skin is definitely getting drier especially during the harsh winter in Canada. Read more…

Kose CLEAR TURN Eye Zone Mask, 64pc (40ml), US$15.5 at Adambeauty.com

Product Review: Kose Cosmeport Clear Turn Eye Zone Mask

This was sent to me by a great friend of mine, along with the Lululun masks. Like Lululun, this mask pack was not individually wrapped, but housed in one package just like using wet wipes (baby wipes, etc.). It’s one of those things you either love it for being less wasteful towards the environment, or you might find it icky to expose a whole stack of sheet masks every time you open it. Anyhow, this was meant to be used up within a month (32 times, or fewer, if you use them also on your nasolabial folds). Read more…

MISSHA PRIME 24K GOLD SNAIL AMPOULE, 30ML, CAD$49.99

Product Review: MISSHA PRIME 24K GOLD SNAIL AMPOULE

I feel like doing a drum roll as I introduce this product. I bought this during a 30% sale at the time, which was a good deal, by the way. I have since learned to wait till sale time to buy from Missha because the price can drop quite a bit! Anyway, there was a time I would not consider using snail slime on my face; but after reading so many great reviews about snail creams and products, I decided to give it a try. Read more…

MISSHA NEAR SKIN NEURO AGE PROGRAM MASK, 30g, $4.99

Product Review: Missha NEAR SKIN NEURO AGE PROGRAM MASK

I bought this mask at the Missha flagship store at Pacific Mall, which, ironically, did not provide English list of ingredients on the product like the ones I bought online from Missha.ca. This is an interesting mask because it contains 4 ‘melting’ ampoule films to be placed under the eyes and on the nasolabial folds (‘laugh lines’) in addition to a ‘4D’ mask. I said ‘interesting’ because Missha’s idea of 4D is a hard seam right in the middle of the mask, and also, the mask contains two holes on the side for you to put on your ears. If you think it sounded uncomfortable, it was intentional, because it was uncomfortable. I also experienced this with a 3D mask by The Face Shop (but without the ear holes). It’s a great idea in concept, but I personally find it rather inconvenient as I put my mask on and felt incessant and constant dripping of the essence from the side of my neck… Read more…
