FORENCOS’ GREEK Mythology MASK SERIES Part 1

For anyone wondering I’m currently in Poland, more specifically Sopot.

It’s part of a tri-city network of 3 close cities together. It’s near the beach, there’s water on the beach, bugs love water…and my face.

Although I did my best to prevent skincare sadness from the plane, there was really nothing I could do to prevent bugs (mostly stupid mosquitoes) from attacking my face. Blegh.

So basically I was in (and still am a little bit) skin care hell. There’s really nothing I could do than rub on some ointment to help stop the itchyness. But the redness seemed to be a constant.

Till I tried these masks!

Today I’ll be reviewing 2 of the 7 masks in the FORENCOS GREEK Mythology MASK SERIES, and I’ll be writing a more further in dept review of my favorites shortly.

Looking so fancy blue nail, you go girl.

Okay real talk, there are basically 7 different masks one for each day of the week.

For the first mask I decided to use the tea tree oil one, because my face was dying and I needed a miracle.

Tea tree oil is suppose to help with acne and I suppose redness all together. So I figured this one would be best for my ailment.

Thursday: relax with Dryas (Tea tree oil mask)

Check out my sad face. Especially my forehead. Take notice of those HUGE bumps from mosquitoes. : (

Anyways, so I figured why not try it.

It fit like a glove. TO MY FACE. The mask itself was one of the nicer paper silk material used and it had a pattern that made it seem more breathable.

I put it on for a hour, but you may ask, oh what about the ampoule sachet on the side there? I, uh, didn’t want to use it this time because I was lazy.

But moving along, after an hour…I emerged.

The redness was slapped down by the mask!

The mask was super effective, red bumps took a critical hit!

Yeah basically it’s amazing. Don’t need to read any further really. Or you can, to read on about the volcanic ash mask.

Tuesday: detox with Hephaestus (Volcanic Ash Mask)

As you can see in the photo the redness is still there, but not as crazy as the day before.

So I decided since the Tea tree oil one was so effective the day before, I’d try another mask from the series to help continue the prevention.

But this time I did use the amouple, it as a mask base so I put it on before the mask itself. It’s really gooey, super gooey, much like a syrup. But it goes onto your face.

But the mask itself was, uh, shocking.

I’ve never experienced a brown mask, but I guess that was expected for a “ash” mask.

The mask didn’t fit on my face as well after using the ampoule, so maybe you were suppose to wash it off before putting on the mask, I’ll try again soon.

After a hour, I removed the mask, and had to wash my face because the ampoule had dried up quite a bit. So, yeah I believe you should wash off the ampoule before the mask. #sherlock

The swelling and the redness went down again! But it doesn’t seem to be as effective as the tea tree oil so far.

I’ll be writing more later.

Bises.

BNTgirl x MediHeal’s NMF Aquaring Hydro Nude Gel Mask

Ello again! I’m back with another mask, and I’ll be reviewing a lot more masks soon!

Today for my last item in my April box I’ll be reviewing MediHeal’s NMF Aquaring Hydro Nude Gel Mask!

SAMSUNG CSC

It boasts twice as much moisture as regular masks while tightening the pores and clarifying the skin.

SAMSUNG CSC

All I did was slap it on for 20 minutes, bottom half first and then the second half.

And boy does it make my skin look flawless. I went out a few times after doing the masks, not wearing any make up afterwards and got asked by a few make up counter ladies if I was wearing any make up. My skin looked fantastic. My skin looked clear, radiant, and gave me the perfect subtle glow (like a finishing powder would).

I don’t usually see to much of a difference when I used masks but for this one I did. I’ll show you below;

Before:

After:

IMG_4211

I feel like I look like I have make up on my skin, bb cream or something but I don’t. It’s all 100% natural nude skin.

More recently I even discovered that you can sleep with you masks on, for perhaps a quick 30 minute power nap. All you have to do is go to Daiso and buy a face mask coverer. Ta-da making flawless skin and sleep at the same time!

I’m rating this a 10/10. Fantastic face mask and it’ll be hard to top.

If you want to try out this highly recommended face mask you can buy it here for $31.

BNTgirl x LEADERS MEDIU Moisture Therapy Body Oil Cream

Head, shoulder, knees and toes. All these place have to be moisturized too!

I bet some of you forgot not just the skin on your face eventually ages as well. So keeping your entire body moisturized is just as important as your face!

Today I’ll be reviewing Leaders MEDIU Moisture Therapy Body Oil Cream, to help you with that.

Body + oil + cream = happy body. The perfect recipe for a healthy body.

SAMSUNG CSC

Now some of you may wonder what I wondered at first, why a body oil vs a body cream. What really is the difference?

Two words, absorption rate. I found that I actually preferred the body oil, from Leaders, rather than my shea butter body cream from BBW because it absorbed into my body so much better. I rubbed it into my body, and then poof, the oil was into my body. No residue, no unpleasant feelings afterwards just clean absorption.

SAMSUNG CSC

The oil was very much like a gel, and liquidized quickly as I rubbed into my body. The gel itself contains amino acid complex, herb complex and tiny tiny vitamin capsules which are cute mini gold spheres. The spheres just sort of pop as you rub the oil into your skin and combine with the gel/oil itself.

As you can see as soon as it absorbs into my dry spot (my elbow specifically) you can’t even see a glimpse that oil was rubbed on, the spot just looks magically healthier/moisturized. Poof. Skin hydrated.

Better yet, it smells like a clean citrus scent, not like lysol (home cleaner), but more like lemon zest on a lemon meringue.

Really the body oil is the perfect thing to apply after a shower and right before you put on clothes, or even with clothes on, because the oil absorbs into your skin immediately. You won’t have to worry about stains or smudges onto your clothing while applying it.

It’s a great product to have, especially in the dry winter where it seems like every single part of my body is dry. After using it for two weeks I feel like my body is healthier, and I think I’m even slightly in love with the body oil.

Really a perfect all round product for the body during any season, wearing any type of clothes. Hassle free, smells great, and is in a easy to use container.

What else could a girl like me really ask for.

I’m giving this a 9.8/10. Almost perfect, it’d be even more perfect if I could find a retailer online that sells it. If anyone knows how I can get this in the USA I’d be much obliged.

Bntgirl x Amaranth Ultra Hydrating Cream

Snowwwwwww day!

Sorry for the week long break between two reviews, but I finally had time to edit the video footage I had since it has been crazy snowing in my area. School has been excused, and now I’m back to my blog in my spare time.

Today I’m be review Amaranth’s Ultra Hydrating Cream, it’s described on it’s packaging sort of like what a face primer would do. It says it’ll help instantly retouch, smooth and revitalize your beauty performance (of the face). Sounds a lot like a primer, no?

However I’m Sherlock Doris and I have free time and I decided to find out what it really is.

I found it’s a Cosmetic company owned by Samsung, gasp! No, haha I meant what it does to your face, but in all seriousness it is owned by Samsung.

I’ve tested it two ways, before foundation (or bb cream) or together, mixed.

In between I wanted to show how I looked with just regular BB Cream on. I’ll be using Lancome’s BB cream and also Photogenic Luminesse.

To be honest it doesn’t feel like any of the primers I’ve ever used but it feels oddly similar to my starfish creams, the consistency is about the same and it feels like it instantly hydrates my face after application. In fact it’s eerily similar to the Sorabee Starfish cream I previously reviewed here.

DUN DUN DUN Sherlock Doris discovered they are managed under the same company! It’s a whole new roller coaster!

It gives off the similar floral-ish scent but I much more prefer the Ultra Hydrating Cream!

Anyways into the more important information. I’ll now show you the differences between the different ways of putting it on.

First, using it as a primer, I’ll put it on before foundation. You’ll see it mattefies my face and almost makes me a bit whiter, sort of like Missha’s MM Bloomer.

STAY ALL DAY MATTEFYING!

Next is just foundation so you can see how it is regularly.

Now to quickly compare the both side by side.

amareth.Still002

 

As you can see I look much more dewy with just foundation, what you can’t see is that I felt much less hydrated with foundation, I had a few flaky spots on my forehead.

So what I really want was a compromise, I wanted dewy skin that was moisturized and that helped my complexion.

Tada, I read that you didn’t just need to just use it as a base but as combination. You just mixed a equal parts of each with a brush before application. This gave me my favorite complexion! Dewy and happy skin!

SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC

Fantastic, radiant glowing skin.

Now to compare all three.

amareth.Still001

Yep, so that’s how I like it! Mixed together in application! It creates a nice hue for winter perfect skin! BYE BYE SKIN FLAKES!

Sherlock Doris out!

Unfortunately it’s not currently available online, must be a new product (much excite!) But when it’s available I’ll link it below.

I’m giving this a 8.5/10, it’s a fantastic face primer moisturizer and together it does some voodoo magic on my face!
