BNTgirl x UGARDEN PERFECT OIL MASK – Camellia

Wow, time really flies doesn’t it?

I’m feeling really busy nowadays, what feels like 30 minutes is actually two hours. Yesterday I studied for what I thought was a few hours but turned out to be 5 hours! But sometimes I like to take a breath and relax, watch the world go by. Or Netflix and chill by yourself. But really, it should be Netflix and chill AND mask.

I love multi-tasking, and when it’s a mask that takes 20 minutes, I can squeeze a episode on Netflix in quickly too. Face feels refreshed and my mind gets a little break.

Today I’ll be reviewing UGARDEN Perfect Oil Mask (in Camellia). It’s a two in one (awesome) mask that comes with oil and a mask! Time to start buffering that Netflix and mask it on.

The first step, like always, is to clean your face (or make sure it’s clean).

Ta da, clean face.

Afterwards you rip off the off the top part of the mask package, the oil, and rub your face with the oil.

You know I’ve always wondered what camellia would smell like, question answered. The smell smacked my nose silly when I inhaled too strongly to begin with, and I would not suggest to others to sniff your oil too strongly. But smelling it delicately afterwards, I appreciated the smell a lot more. It was still strong but pleasant.

After that I rested for 20 minutes of looking like this. And watching some Netflix, I’m currently watching a “Death in Paradise.” Solid murder mystery series, my favorite genre.

I was done. Ta da.

Check out that all too dewy glow. I was radiant, practically glowing even. The only downside of this mask was that you kept that dewy glow, literally forever- till the end of time. I just washed my face after three hours because I didn’t want to keep glowing and I wanted to sleep.

Overall a fine mask to add to my ever growing mask collection. The cool part was that it had a section for the neck, gotta prevent those neck wrinkles.

I’d rate it a 9/10, bit too dewy for me but still a nice mask, kept me well hydrated.

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)

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-45

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

Anyways, so I figured why not try it.

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-47

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.

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-52

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)

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-09

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.

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-13

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

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-16

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.

Coreana RODIN SHO’s EGFactor Timeless Program Part 1

Brief review time.

For this review, it’ll be a bit shorter than my usual reviews. Only because I’ll have a update later (in a month.)

Today I’ll be partially reviewing Coreana’s RODIN SHO’s EGFactor Timeless Program.

I’ll be writing about the 28 day program, there’s another shorter one, I believe for 7 days, if you want to try it.

It comes as a anti wrinkle program, for the eyes and face overall.

First off let’s talk, real talk, you can already see it’s luxurious. BAM syringes, and capsules.

It’s like playing science, but with your face.

The syringes are actually eye creams for the under eye bags, the most sensitive part of your face, SENSITIVE TO TIME!

As a anti wrinkle product, it’s in one of the most sanitary containers I’ve seen so far.

As a syringe it makes sure you put on not too much product onto your face and it distributes the same amount every time.

The syringe is plastic, it feels nice against the hand though, and looks nice.

The ampoules are for the face.

They sort of finish up the treatment, by giving your face a overall hydrated feeling all day long, 24 hours.

The texture is nice and light so far and it feels almost like argan oil onto your face.

More thoughts about this product later.

Bises,

Doris

Prestige BN Gel Mask EX

Masks masks masks, they’re like my shots nowadays, but healthier.

Both go onto my face right? Haha.

Today I’ll be reviewing Prestige BN Gel Mask EX. Ohhh so fancy.

 

The packaging is cute and luxurious looking, especially the ingredients. Bird’s nest and gold combo again. Au au au (chemical symbol, haha.)

The mask is suppose to leave your skin glowing and nourished, it makes your face its baby.

The mask is made as a gel mask and split into two parts, the top half of your face and the bottom half. I suppose this method insures that the user has a better fitted mask so it does it’s job properly.

The mask has one job and that’s to make your face beautiful!

Let’s try the mask.

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-24

Sorry for the potato quality photo, I used my iPhone, which is suppose to be good, but whatever.

As you can see from the photo the mask fit my face really well. It felt nice on and au so luxurious.

Anytime I have a gel mask on my face I feel like it’s much more nicer than a paper mask anyways. Seems like they put more energy into this mask. ENERGIZE MY FACE!

Anyways, I left it on my face for a nice 30 minutes before I went to bed instead of a night cream, and it left my face feeling just as hydrated as a night cream would. But without any greasy residue!

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-29

It was a nice mask that was fairly effective in nourishing my face as it’s baby. I’d likely use their services again to help me with my face.

I’d rate this as a solid 8/10 mask. It does what I want it to do and felt nice.

You can get it here for $23.

[3CE] 3 Concept Eyes WATER WRAPPING FACIAL MASK

Phew, long time no see guys.

Sorry, I’ve been traveling a bit, and for this post I want to feature the face mask that made my 3 day journey to Europe MUCH better!

Prepare for a face mask worth the hassle of bringing onto your carry on luggage.

Ladies and Gentlemen, sit back and relax. We’re cruising.

Stylenanda 3CE WATER WRAPPING FACIAL MASK.

Traveling is almost never a delight unless you have the money to fly First/Business Class. But you know we make do with what we have.

Who else hates long airplanes rides, and cannot sleep on planes? Me.

I had a two flights to get to Poland, the first flight was from JFK (New York) -> SVO (Moscow, Russia) which was 9 hours long.

Plane rides are infamous for their stale, drying air and that can wreck  havoc on your face up before a vacation. So I was prepared. I brought 6 different face masks to use on the planes.

It was devastatingly long, especially since I didn’t sleep much the night before (3 hours) and I couldn’t sleep at all on the plane. Damn you internal clock telling me it’s daylight.

But the mask was God sent.

Prepare for shameless mask wearing on planes.

photo_2015-06-08_13-50-03

I put the mask on and it was like bringing the Alps to my face. My skin tingled with a cooling sensation and felt like it was finally breathing for the first time in 6 hours.

I wish I was joking, it was amazing. It was as if clean, fresh mountain air was bought to me 9000FT in the air.

I’ve never experienced anything like it before, but maybe I haven’t tried enough face masks on airplanes, but I know for sure if you have a flight in the future, you should buy this mask. Right now. It was amazing.

But wait there’s more! The mask not only made my face feel extremely refreshed, it knocked me out cold.

The combination the feeling of my skin being able to breathe and the nice cool tingling sensation was just what I needed to rock me into slumber. One moment I was watching Agent Carter and the next I was out like a light.

I was out cold for 30 minutes. The nap re-energized, and I emerged from my slumber a changed woman, I was Snow White. I felt pretty, rejuvenated and just overall wonderful.

Of course it also rehydrated my face better than a splash of water. It was a snow melting into my face.

IMG_4584

I know I know, sometimes people write things that may sound too good to be true. But I sincerely promise you won’t regret this if you try this.

Bring the refreshing mountain air with you 9,000ft in the air.

First class is a state of mind anyways.

I’m giving this a 11/10. The perfect product to me honestly, I’m about to buy a tonne (a literal tonne) and hoard them forever and ever.

You can buy it here on Stylenanda’s website here.

GEO Bella Brown Circle Lens

Woo today I’ll be reviewing my first pair of circle lenses which is one of the more popular circle lenses available.

I purchased mine from LoveShoppingHolics.com. From the recommendation of fellow BBlogger and BNTgirl Kim (you can read more of her on her own blog here).

Though I’ve really enjoyed the circle lenses themselves I think the best part of the lenses were the freebies I got!

As the title reads I got the GEO Bella Brown circle lenses which have;

  • 14mm diameter
  • 38% water content
  • 8.6 base curve
  • 1 year life span

SAMSUNG CSC

I’ve had them for about a year now, and I’ve worn them out quite a bit (clubbing, dinner etc) and I always get compliments on them.

10394779_10152883006507704_4939872480854505611_n

I feel like I may have gotten bit too wide lenses, but they also enhance the doe-eyed look effect. So it’s not too terribly bad, but still look cute/alien like.

SAMSUNG CSC

They feel really comfortable on too, I think the longest I’ve worn them was for about 8 hours straight and they didn’t dry out my eyes! So 10/10 for comfort.

SAMSUNG CSC

The color matched my iris as well as I have light brown eyes so people didn’t notice too much of a difference and that’s what matters the most, just cuter eyes. 10/10 color.

Overall I think if you’re looking for a cute/aegyo eye look I’d definitely recommend them. I can’t wait to try more circle lenses! I’d rate these a 10/10. They did what I wanted to do and more, I’ve really enjoyed having these for a year!

If you’re looking for circle lenses I’d recommend you get them at LoveShoppingHolics! It was fast shipping + awesome freebies!

Bises, Doris

 

 

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.

IMG_4196

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:

IMG_4195

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!

IMG_4086

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 iSOi ACNI Dr. 1st Control Essence

Sometimes like all human beings I get skin care problems.

Hormonal acne especially troubles me once a month. I’ll get some small pimples, though it doesn’t sound too bad they’re extremely noticeable against the rest of my clear skin.

So today I’ll be reviewing a product that helped me get by those monthly woes;  iSOi ACNI Dr. 1st Control Essence.

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s a serum/essence that helps with skin care overall;  ft. blemishes, dryness and troubled skin overall.

Like always iSOi has fantastic glass packaging that makes it feel quite luxurious.

SAMSUNG CSC

Being by iSOi I expected nothing less than it being absorbed into my skin quickly and easily. The absorption was great and felt light. The cream itself has a mild fragrance so it won’t irritate the skin any further. The essence also boasts that it has no chemical ingredients and that it’s all natural, and I believe it.

SAMSUNG CSC

The serum helped my acne fade away naturally and my skin imperfections less imperfect. It helped my redness around my cheeks and nose fade and for the first time in forever I went out with almost no make up on to school. I only have my brows done in the picture below, and that’s it.

IMG_4124

I think overall I’d rate this a 8/10. I don’t think you should treat this like a acne treatment by itself but rather a face imperfection remover instead.

If you’re interested you can buy it here for $30.

BNTgirl x Neogen CODE 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence and Tox Tightening Pack

For my last review for my March box, I’ll be telling you the secret to my flawless radiant skin for the month.

Wow fantastic baby.

I’ll be reviewing Neogen CODE 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence and Tox Tightening Pack.

SAM_3303

Inside the white container had yellow gauze pads on one side and cotton pads on the other side.

SAM_3304

After inspecting the contents you surprisingly had to pour the liquid into the gauze/cotton pad combo and then in a even more stranger twist put in the refrigerator for 9 hours before even using it.

SAM_3311

I thought it was too complex at first but after trying it for a few weeks I’m a believer.

I usually use it after a shower and toner to make sure my face is completely clean. Then according to instructions, start with the cotton pad side first and then in a sweeping motion go from the inner face to the outer face. It’s really cool and refreshing especially after a shower, it just immediately cools the face and closes the pores.

After that you use the yellow gauze side and sweep again from the inner part of your face outwards.

The combination of the dual sided pad helps absorb and maintain that radiant glow afterwards.

I’ve been truly loving this product everyday, it helps clear my skin and make sure I can go out barefaced without being too worried about my complexion!

BNTgirl x It’s SKIN PRESTIGE BN CREAM EX

Welcome back to my bloggg.

Today I’ll be reviewing It’s SKIN PRESTIGE BN CREAM EX! It’s a face cream that contains Swift nest and pure gold extracts (super fancy ingredients yo).

SAMSUNG CSC

For those who don’t know, Swift Nest is a ingredient (a very expensive one, a nest can go for $2500USD, baller lifestyle) that is used to make a very very very expensive soup. The soup itself is suppose to help with a lot of properties to help with health in general.

I didn’t really know what the gold did besides make a cream more fancier previously, so I did some googling and found that it’s suppose to help rejuvenate the skin and that gold face masks are really popular in Japan. That healthy glow.

So already this just sounds like a expensive product, and if the packaging says anything it definitely feels expensive.

SAMSUNG CSC

The container itself is really cool. Check out my pics, I can’t really describe it but the lid goes within the container and creates a really cool effect when opening it.

For the product, I found it smelled really similar to Pond’s face cream, a light perfumed scent. It absorbs really fast into the skin. I love the fact that it’s light and absorbent. Nothing’s better than a face cream that doesn’t sit in the face, it goes right into the skin, so you know the skin’s absorbing something.

I really like it as a face cream, my major winter problem has been dry skin, and it has taken care of that. Ohhh hydrated skin = happy skin. Look at my naked skin, wow much radiance wow, but I think that’s mostly in large part due to a different skincare product you’ll see in my blog soon!

I’ve been liking it however it hasn’t been “wow”ing me especially at the price point so I’m giving it a 7/10.

You can buy it here for $55.
