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.

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.

Too cool for school EGG MOUSSE PACK & SOAP SPECIAL DUO

Aerosol cans, so hot right now. Amiright?

Late spring/early summers make people lazy and since I’m a lazy person this was great for me. SPRAY EVERYTHING! Everything is easier in a sprayable form.

I’ll be reviewing another Too Cool For School item, this time a mask and soap cleanser duo!

Double the lazy for me, you get both a cleaner and healthier face FROM A CAN!

Like usual, Too Cool For School (obviously too cool for me) provides the cutest packaging.

Everything looks like they’re made to be gifts (to yourself, of course) and the cute yellow string just brings it all together.

Moving onto the important bits though, I use the cleanser (soap) and then use the mousse afterwards.

By the way I completely enjoyed using this product, I love love love super love whipped cream from a aerosol can, and this product just just a continuous reminder of it.

The soap can be used as a cleanser or even as a shaving cream apparently (I’ll try maybe later. Also check out how I pumped out wayyyyy too much into my palm.)

The foam from the cleanser is much thicker and heavier than the mousse (which sounds light anyways), akin to a heavy whipped cream. I’ll be comparing everything in this review to a cream. CREAMY!

As a cleanser I’d say it removed my light make up fairly well. I don’t think it can remove stronger make up such as, waterproof mascara or lipstick. But as a everyday thing it does everything and more in a can!

So let’s say you start off the day lazy, bb cream and eyebrows, you can then finish the day lazy with a can! It’s fantastic, the summer heat makes me extremely lazy.

I’m off from university in the summer, and I don’t see my classmates as often, prompting me to be less likely to put on a full face of make up. Ergo, lazier Doris make up!

You can see how much noticeably thicker and harder it is to spread across my face, since it’s a thicker cream. It was almost icing (yummy) thick. Oh my god, I’m getting hungry writing this.

After setting it for a little bit, I washed it off. Feeling refreshed, nothing than cleaning your make up at the end of the day.

Just kidding, a mask at the end of the day is even better.

For the Egg Mousse Pack I used it as a light mask and after spreading it evenly on my face I left it on for 10 minutes.

For the consistency, I’d say the name is quite on point, it’s like a light mousse, or a nice fluffy whipped cream. Nice and fluffy cream.

The mask is suppose to use it’s eggy properties for good, on your face. Brightening and nourishing your face in fluffy and easily accessible can form.

Unlike the soap it spread on the face quite nicely, easily, and evenly. No rough patched here.

During the 10 minute wait before I rinsed it off, the foam quickly turned into bubbles disappearing into the sea foam it was made from.

Looking moisturized.

As a duo product I’d say it was quite easy and fun to use. If you’re looking for a easy summer product to use, I’d say why not.

Packaging is cute and it does what it does. Not bad.

I’d give this a 8/10.

[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.

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 SNP Animal Masks (Panda, Tiger, Dragon, Otter)!

Masks, oh glorious masks.

Animal masks, whaaaaaaaa.

Recently trending are face masks that are also quite “selfie” able. How exciting.

A skincare essential to everyday (or weekly) skincare routines are definitely face masks! They’re the extra ompf to your routine, the ‘treat yo self’ factor in your life.

I love face masks, since they essentially mean 10-20 minutes of doing absolutely nothing but relaxing.

5

Today I’ll be reviewing four different face masks from SNP; the Otter Mask (hydration) the Tiger Mask (wrinkles), the Dragon Mask (blemishes) and the Panda Mask (whitening).

The best part of it all, SNP donates a portion of their profits to Korea Animal Protection Society. So you look fun, feel great and help animals in need too.

Feel the animal within?

Spoiler alert I’m listening my favorites first and we’ll go down to my least favorites.

First, my favorite, oh-oh-otter mask! Hydration has been quite scarce lately in the winter months, and this has been my mini oasis in the desert.

3

The mask gives a instant hydrating lift to the skin and leaves a nice dewy finish. The mast gives off a light floral “aqua” scent, which isn’t too annoying to smell for a long period of time, it’s the opposite in fact.

Photo Feb 22, 10 14 28 AM

My second favorite is was panda mask! Although I’m not too keen on the whitening skincare products, I LOVE THIS MASK! It gives off a wonderful citrus scent and it’s the cutest!

Photo Mar 02, 10 59 18 AM

is the tiger mask! Out of the four this one may be my favorite “selfie” mask, it was so adorable, rawr! The tiger mask features the anti-wrinkling properties, which I’m not too keen about since I’m 21. But it was so cute!

Photo Mar 04, 1 11 54 PM

Photo Mar 04, 1 06 42 PM

My least favorite was the dragon mask. I was really excited to try this “blemish” mask, but I found that it didn’t work and I didn’t like this scent the most. 😦 But I still liked selfie-ing around with it.

Photo Feb 25, 11 51 31 AM

I’m giving the masks a overall 7/10. Although cute, I didn’t find that the products were too effective in their properties. But they still left nice!

You can get a;

Otter box herefor $20 on Amazon.

Tiger box herefor $26 on Amazon.

Panda box herefor $26 on Amazon.

Dragon box herefor $26 on Amazon.

BNTgirl x doctorcos Amino Acid Hybrid Sheet Free Mask Advanced

Gobble gobble, happy Thanksgiving everyone!

If you’re international, Thanksgiving is a holiday where most students have a week of break to go home and celebrated what we’re grateful for. And buy a lot of things we don’t need on Black Friday. Or this year to buy a lot of things at 6pm and eat dinner really early at 3pm.

I’m writing this while I have a break from cooking.

And I’m sad to say this is my final BNTgirl review, maybe ever.

I’m reviewing my favorite from the box, saving the best for last (amiright), Doctorcos Amino Acid Hybrid Sheet Free Mask.

Highly sought after and raved about, in Asia and beyond, I was nothing but excited when I got this to try.

FullSizeRender

So you’re probably thinking the same thing I was thinking when I read the title of my post, “what the heck is a sheet free mask?” What does that imply anyways, don’t all masks have disposable one time use face masks you put on you face for 30 minutes???

doctorcos

Like seriously, what the heck. Haha. Little did I know I would soon come to the same conclusion every other bblogger had before me. Sheet free masks, this is the future. This is awesome.

By having no one time use only disposable masks, we reduce waste, energy and effort of putting on a face mask. 100% lazy girl in me is screaming inside, “Yes! Yes….YASSSSS!!!”

I used to set aside 30 minutes a week just so I could make sure my face mask would stay in place, I used it as sort of a “me” time. But now I don’t have to set aside 30 minutes of my life, put on a mask and take it off. I can just put it on at night and ta da. Skin is happy, face feels fresh, hydrated, and even rejuvenated.

dabble

dabble

Okay now here are some the of the facts of the mask, now that you know I absolutely adore it, you may also want to know what it does for your face. On a deeper level, if you know what I mean.

It’s suppose to help; whiten, moisturize, pore refiner, tighten, wrinkles, nourish and overall skin health.

You can use it as a overnight mask (1mm-3mm thick layer), regular face mask (<1mm), or even as a base (light later) for your make up.

Now you may think, “1-3mm thick for a overnight mask? How can you even do that.” Simple, you tap it onto your face lightly.

Second thoughts afterwards may be, what on earth does amino acid hybrid mean???

Well I had no idea, so I decided to look it up for you guys. Apparently the amino acids help by instantly moisturizing your face, and help promote skin turn over rate. Cool.

Third thoughts could be, what does it smell like then, it smells like a luxurious face mask akin to Leader’s face masks which have those nice gel masks. But the scent is lighter and softer on your nose. It’s great. No true floral scent, no irritating overwhelming scents either, it’s truly fantastic.

Anyways, now that you get the gist of what this amazing product is and how it works, it’s your turn to give it a try. Maybe tomorrow, maybe sooner, MAYBE TONIGHT! I highly recommend it.

Goodbye regular sheet masks, I won’t miss you.

I’m giving this a 10/10. Perfection.

You can get this here for $19.99, if you’re interested a mask free happy life, come to the dark side. We have less trash and more happiness.

Review – Leaders Vita Bright Skin Renewal Mask

Hello again guys! I’m back and I’m reviewing the best for last. My favorite mask I got out of the bunch from BntNews as a BNTgirl. I got four masks by Leaders and this by far was my favorite. Simply because it smelled great and still delivered the same quality of mask that I wanted. vitabright1 leadersbright2 It promised to brighten the skin and even skin tone. Bonus: it smells like peaches and awesomeness. I’m basically a peach fanatic anything peach and I’ll basically love it. It gave me dewy skin that made my outing with my friends in Toronto picture perfect because my skin looked radiant all day.   leadersbright3 Tl;dr 10/10 I will be repurchasing this. I love this.

My skin care routine plus some tips (◕w◕ア

Alrighty so I’m just going to do a mini post on my skin care routine/ my skin care tips because I’ve been recently doing a lot of skin care posts. I figured I might as well show my readers what I do usually on a every day basis (minus the mask, I do that once a week or before a special occasion SUCH AS A DATE IF I HAD ONE.)

  1. Eyes – Lancome Bi-Facial Eye Make up Remover (everyday when I wear mascara)
  2. Makeup – Biore daily deep pore cleansing wipes (extra bonus: FOR DEM PORES, everyday if I wear make up)
  3. Scrub – MBD Egg White Gommage peeling (2-3 time a week)
  4. Mask – Leaders Aquaringer Skin Clinic Mask (once a week)
  5. Serum – iSOi – Bulgarian Rose Blemish Serum (morning and night)
  6. Cream – BRTC Aqua Rush Cream (morning and night)
  7. Diet – EAT HEALTHY FOR BETTER SKIN (every moment of your life)
  8. SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP (try to get 8, I try for 10 hours in the summer #yolo)

I find that for the easiest removal of the toughest make up i.e eyeliner/mascara is easiest with a dual liquid type eye make up remover (meaning that when it’s undisturbed you’ll see two layers of liquids in the container) it removes eye make up gently and without any harshness. The reason why I don’t just use my make up wipe to do my entire face is because it never gets ALL of my eye make up off and the skin around the eyes are more sensitive.

For scrubs and masks, I wouldn’t say they’re absolutely vital to a skin care routine but you know they’re nice to have on the side. Sort of like fries, fries are always nice to have on the side. JK I NEED FRIES. Scrubs/masks are a added bonus, think “treat yo self” and I think it’s pretty much like a spa day in your own home.

Serums are also a treat yo self skin every day kind of thing. So also nice to have but not really a necessity unless you have a skin care problem which is treated by a serum.

Creams are vital. How vital you may ask, well they’re like how much I need ice cream in the summer. Constant cravings. Creams help me fight against my constant random dry patches and let me go through the day/night knowing my skin is kept moisturized!

Though to be real, I’d put an emphasis on the last two mostly, a healthy diet and sleep can do wonders on your skin. I know personally when I’m back in the student grind I lose my shiny egg white like skin because of a diet of apple crisps + fries and like 3-5 hours of sleep.  But you know if you don’t have good skin, you can always fake it with concealer or take extra care of your skin with eye creams, and creams in general. Heavy usage on conceal if necessary.

When I’m really lazy all I need is some concealer under the egg bags and then some brows and my go to “whatever” look is complete. tl;dr eyemake up remover + cream + sleep + food =  awesome skin everything to me seems like a extra bonus Thanks for reading, see you guys again soon! YSL baby doll kiss + blush first impressions soon! ❤
