Blogtober* SKIN18 Korean Facial Treatment Favorites

 

Hey everybody! Welcome back to my blog ūüôā Today I’ve super super excited post to show you¬†all¬†my new blog post of the¬†face masks I’ve posted on my Instagram feed not too long ago.

So today, I’m going to talk about facial mask favorites. It’s the products I got from SKIN 18 to do this blog post. This is my second time doing a collaboration with Skin 18 and I’ve been quite impressed with¬†their initial samples and so when they contacted me the second time, I couldn’t say no. Reason because I really like it. You guys know that I only work with brands that I’m confident¬†with.

These are sheet¬†masks that I personally used the find it work and make a noticeable difference straight away.¬†I’m quite impressed with all the products and I’m going to talk to you all today.

So, here are the sheet masks, nose strips, moisturizing pack and modeling cup pack.

First time trying this Modeling Cup Pack by Inoface Cosmetics. This is a Korean brand and this is a unique face mask I would say. I haven’t tried any powder mask before and this cup pack intrigued me to try it.

It comes in a cute sturdy plastic cup¬†packaging like so and inside it you’ll find a spatula for mixing the mold. I’m not a big fan of product that comes in powder form, reason being I find it a little cumbersome and messy. But this one is so easy to mix into a batter which¬†is good news.

To make your own mask. All you have to do is follow this simple step. Just add water (1/2 of the products) into the cup and then mix¬†it ¬†well with the spatula provided. Once you’ve mixed it evenly, apply this sticky modeling pack rapidly¬†on the face. After 15-20 minutes, peel off the mask/pack and clear up the residues.¬†I like applying serum and moisturizer after my mask treatment. It feels so good and refreshing.

You can also recycle the cup. That’s also good for the environment!

Moving on are the sheet mask by Luxe and their nose strips. I really love this brand after testing their eye strips. Their products smells amazing and they don’t cause skin irritation whatsoever. I’ve sensitive skin and when I had this sheet mask on, I didn’t noticed any tingling or discomfort at all. The whole time, my skin just absorbs the goodness of this collagen essence in. It feels so rejuvenating and just one word to describe it :¬†AMAZING!

I put this at night and the next morning my skin feels so soft, so plump and fresh. It definitely calms my skin down.

Behind the packaging, you’ll find a bilingual instructions on how to apply and the ingredients used. I highly recommend it.

Next I’m going to talk about the nose strip and the nose cleansing strip. Both amazing products. I always thought I don’t have much whiteheads on my nose until it was revealed to me how gross and scary it looks when I peeled the nose strip off. You know right, whiteheads are very hard to spot. And Oh my gosh! When the truth was¬†revealed to me and seeing all my whiteheads stuck on the strip, I know right away that¬†I must have¬†this¬†in my life. Seriously!

Both  of these nose strips smells amazing. The nose strip really smells like mugwort plant and lemon tea smells so refreshing. I also tried the lemon tea cleansing strip a few days ago and I really like it. It works wonderfully as the mugwort strip except with different scents. Overall, yay!

So if you’re in the market for nose strips, I suggest you check out this one. They’re decent in price¬†and it works great.

Since the weather is getting colder and drier my skin has been screaming for moisturizer all these times. Normally, I would slap a handful of my Lancome Bientfait day cream to keep my skin moisturize. You know, I’ve dry-combination skin and this Aloe Soothing Mask is a must have in each and everyone’s drawer. Teenagers under 18 years – you might want to skip this and go to the next product.

As it says on the packaging, this is an Anti-Aging Aloe Soothing Mask and they weren’t kidding when they said that. This is more for hydrating your skin than anything else.

It feels soothing, cooling and relaxing when you first applied the sheet mask on. But before the mask, follow the instruction to as Step 1 which is the anti-aging ampule. I applied it on and gently massaged them in. Then I have the sheet mask on for 25-30 minutes.

Once I took off the sheet mask, I usually like to rub the formula in by massaging it in circular motion. Then, I go ahead to step 3 by applying the night cream to really set my skin with this awesome moisturizer.

I find this really good. I know for a fact that aloe vera gel is good for helping skin healing,¬†scars, burnt and many other usages. So, when you’ve a packet full of aloe vera on a sheet mask, I tell you, it’s a must try.

The next that I’ve been loving is this Cucumber Essence Mask Sheet by Beauty Friends. If you’re looking for a smooth and brightening mask for your complexion then this one¬†is for you. It smells very cleansing and cucumber-y, if that make any sense. Conclusion is that I like that it leaves my skin feeling fresh.

Lastly, this is one of my favorite. This Moisturizing Cucumber Pack is amaze-ball. It’s really kind of¬†¬†moisturizing and nourishing to your skin. It feels so moisturizing and when you massage it in, it’s gel type watery.

How to Make Your Eyes Look Younger

They say that eyes are the window to the soul. But what do your eyes say about you? Are you getting enough beauty sleep? Are you using the right products and maintaining a balanced diet? These are all factors that can greatly contribute to how your eyes will appear. If you are constantly dealing with bags under your eyes or the wrinkles around them make you look much older than you really are, perhaps it is time to change some of your habits. These things can be managed quite easily, with only a few of these simple tricks:

Diet

It is in the inside what counts, right? Well, before you start looking for alternative procedures to fix your baggy eyes, you should first consider your diet. What you eat can have a great effect on your overall appearance. What you should start implementing into your diet are foods that are rich with antioxidants which will help you with inflammations and puffiness and actually help you with clear signs of aging and pollutants. Other than that, consider foods that contain high levels of vitamin C like leafy greens, strawberries and citrus fruits, as they are known to prevent wrinkles and dry skin but also some more severe conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration.

Face Masks

Another great way to fend off wrinkles and clear signs of aging is by relying on homemade masks. Keep in mind that the skin around the eyes is very thin and that is why fine lines and crow’s feet will first appear. Because of this, make use of your fresh foods to create natural remedies that will help you depuff your eyes, remove wrinkles and deep lines and also help soothe those dark circles and sagginess around them. Foods like sweet potatoes, cucumbers, pineapples, eggs and herbal teas are known to be quite effective against these annoying pests.

Makeup and Other Products

When it comes to various beauty products that could help us in our battle for younger looking eyes, it is important to consider what kind of compounds are found in our cosmetics. When choosing your products, whether they are makeup or anti-aging creams, make sure they are based retinol, hydroxyl acids, niacinamide, tea extracts and coenzyme Q10. Vitamin C based creams are known to make the skin firmer, stimulate collagen synthesis and also prove antioxidant protection. It is also important to protect your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen regularly, as too much sun exposure is known to cause older looking skin, brown spots, wrinkles and deep lines.

Beauty Sleep

In the end, do not forget to get appropriate amounts of sleep. Your beauty sleep will help you energize your body and prevent dark circles, bags and sagginess under your eyes.

As we get older, our skin will lose its elasticity, start producing wrinkles and show clear signs of aging. Of course, there is nothing you can do to stop aging, but these few simple tips can at least help you age gracefully. Implementing a few of these changes into your daily routine can greatly contribute to younger looking skin and eyes as well.
