BNTgirl x Stylenanda 3CE WHITE MILK PACK TO FOAM

Today I’ll be reviewing a favorite of BNTNews July box!

Ba-dum, I’ll be reviewing 3CE WHITE MILK PACK TO FOAM! 


So who doesn’t like a clay mask that foams? IM THINKING NO ONE!!!

It’s a pretty awesome concept, a product that has 3 functions. You can use it as a cleanser, a clay mask or just a nose mask!

But I pretty much use the clay mask function exclusively only because I love it so much.

It’s a super light clay masks that dries in 5-10 minutes and then lathers up into a foam when you’re washing it off.

So I has the soft essentials of a clay mask but also the best part of any cleanser: the foaming. So it’s basically the perfect clay mask for me.

Did I mention it was a super, super soft product. It feels like a soft putty and just spreads all over your face. It smells light.

It could be a cloud. Who’s to say it isn’t?

LET IT FOAM!



It’s just a nice mask.

And it definitely felt like a nice mask to just let it absorb the impurities in my face.

I’d definitely be purchasing it once I finish this. SOON!

I rate this a 9/10. Super enjoyable mask.

BNTgirl x CATALINA GEO Color Capsule Make Up Base

Good evening!

So if you follow my blog, you’ll see that the title of my review today is very similar, and that’s because I’m again reviewing Catalina Geo’s Color Capsule Make Up Base!


But today instead of a green base, that reduces redness, I got a pink base which should make my skin more youthful!

Of course, like always I like to gauge it’s difference in color and texture, as a color difference could also mean a texture difference of the make up base. But nope, this time the base kept the same consistency of the green base I had gotten earlier, which smoothed out nicely once applied.

Once applied the base gives of a soft pale shimmer and makes me sparkle a little bit more than usual. A nice dewy finished!
I tested it all day while I was out, and it made sure my HERA UV mist cushion BB cream stayed on all day!

I was impressed.


It stayed on all day and made sure my face didn’t get too oily or made my make up runny. A true base.

I won’t lie, I liked this one better than the green one I reviewed previously probably because I didn’t have skin redness problems. But this one definitely enhanced my skin.

So overall I found that since the capsule base comes with different colors, the one that works best for you might not be the one that worked best for me.

Overall I rate this one a 8/10.

It’s a very solid primer, but if you’re not in the market for a Korean specific primer, I think the American ones might be easier to get or have the same price range. But it’s still a solid primer for what it is and what it does!

BNTgirl x MAXCLINIC Miraclinic Ampoule Dressing/Contouring Object

Honestly, this has been one of the most fun thing to test and review in a while. So I’m going to go straight into it.

Today I’ll be reviewing MAXCLINIC’s Miraclinic Ampoule Dressing/Contouring Object.

Its a double layer face mask, the bottom being a regular face mask and the top, a hardening mask layer.

It comes in a seriously cool package, each set containing 4 masks.

So the cool part about this mask is that it solidifies on your face, sort of like paper mache (all you kids from Canada will know). Or like those instant casts, you can just feel it go from dry paper -> wet paper -> dry paper again.

And it comes out in the shape of your face!

Of course there are benefits to this mask, like every mask. This one advertises a super lifting property, basically firming your skin right up and more!

Sorry about the wall of images about to come. But the images basically sum up my experience. It was fun, it took 35 minutes, and in the end I definitely felt like my jaw line was slimmer and my face felt tight.

First of course, I put on the mask on some clean skin.

The mask was a bit big so I had to fold the nose part up in order to breathe, which was a slight bummer, but nothing really, since I only had to fold the nose part up.

Next was the dry layer.

So the instructions said to press the dry second layer onto the wet layer in order to get the dry layer wet. Once I had thoroughly made sure the mask was set,I then waited 30 minutes and definitely felt the mask harden.

After 30 minutes it was time to take the mask off!

It definitely felt cool to take off a solid mask of your face.

And I think my face definitely looks slimmer and less red.

I definitely feel that I had a positive experience with this mask, although I know some of my other BNTgirl-mates haven’t had the same experience. But the weather, and humidity could definitely affect the ability of the second layer to reharden!

Overall I found this to be a fun, and good mask!

I rating this a 9/10. It showed positive results and it was fun! Just bummed that the set only has 4!

But you can get it here for $12.

Review: Benton Honest TT Mist Review

Oh my gosh, this has been the first non-BntNews review in a while. And I’m looking forward to posting my travel vlogs/blogs soon while on spring break. 3 weeks to go.

Today I’ll be reviewing something I got from Roseroseshop and South Korean retailer of all sorts of Korean skincare and cosmetics. They have fairly decent prices, so if you want to check them out, here’s the link.

Today I’ll be reviewing Benton Honest TT Mist. I’m pretty excited because this is my first Benton product that I’ve ever used and it’s super fantastic-elastic.

I feel kind of bad because I actually received this product about 3 months ago to start testing and using and I’m only uploading a review now. But the good news is that I’ve heavily tested it for the past three months and I have only good things to say about it.

Benton truly seems to care about the skin with the products, and it was especially shown with their mist. It has a pH similar to skin, which makes the mist a gentle, neutral to skin spray. It leaves the skin feeling fresh all sorts of the day.

I brought it along with my winter travels to California, and it feel like it helped my skin adjust to the drier winters there. My skin was just super dry there (it ded) and I used the spray at least twice a day (morning and night) to just make sure my skin didn’t die for the rest of the day.

If I had a drier skin patch, double sprayed there, skin dry patch faded. If I had a surprise pimple area, double sprayed there, pimple faded.  If someone was mean to me, double sprayed there, person faded.

You get the idea, I sort of used it as a all purpose spray, and I loved it. I think I finally understand those Korean dramas where the girls just spritzed everywhere all the time. I turned into that. Universal Studios, check. Disneyland, check. Pre-dinner, check. Las Vegas, check. Basically everywhere I was spritzing.

photo_2016-02-23_19-38-04

I’m a bit sad now as I’ve finished about half the bottle now but I can at least tell you all that I love it.

Plus it’s cheap. You can get it from roseroseshop here for ~$7. That’s crazy cheap, especially for something that I used basically all the time. Time to repurchase. Can’t wait.

Even though I was given this as a product to review for roseroseshop, this of course contains my 100% honesty.

Thus 10/10. I’m definitely rebuying. SPRITZ!

BNTnews x HP&C THELAVICOS Enzyme Washing Powder

Sensitive skin. Balanced pH. Keywords!

All the things I want in a cleanser and more.

Today I’ll be reviewing a product that really impressed me this month from BNTnews, THELAVICOS Enzyme Washing Powder.

Sensitive skin? Worried about that winter dryness? WANT A NEW CLEANSER? Here we go.

It’s a non-irritating washing powder that builds up into a foam and takes off even the most waterproof make up. It’s a pretty kick ass cleanser. I’m honestly the most surprised about how much I loved this washing powder.

All you need to do is put a tsp of it into your palm and just a little bit of water and it’ll foam up. You can just massage it into your face and all your worries disappear. And by worries I mean make up. It just removes all and everything from your face, but gently!

Honestly, these not much to say. You can see the results above, and pictures speak a thousand words. It just completely annihilates all make up, there were nor survivors of make up residue. I’m clean.

It’s a fantastic face cleanser and I would whole heartedly recommend it to everyone.

I’m rating this a 10/10.

Unfortunately for you all, it’s currently not on sale yet, I think I was given a trial product. But when it is…I’ll link it ASAP!

BNTgirl x Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Watery Cream

In my last blog I spoke about white winters, and what happens when I come home from Los Angeles? White out. Yeahhhhhh ski weather!

But obviously they’re some downsides to the cold weather, one of which is the dry dry, super dry skin that occurs. I have to blast the heat at home, or I might die. So instead of me dying, my body takes a casualty, my skin.

Today I’ll be reviewing a product that has been an immense help for my winter skin; NATURE REPUBLIC Ginseng Royal Watery Cream. Super fancy stuff.

Now, you might ask why I say super fancy, and I say it is because BA-BAM GOLD FLAKES! GINSENG! ROYAL JELLY! GOLD SILKWORM! Tell me that doesn’t look fancy.

Every time I put it on my face I feel like a K-Pop star, and that’s not only because of the super fancy ingredients, lots of K-Pop stars feature it in their routines, and I even saw Taeyeon from SNSD post about it on her instagram. Goals!

I’m feeling fancy.

As for the cream itself it does succeed in the “watery” part of it’s name. The cream absorbs quickly and sets as a light cream that can be used in both your day or night routine.

I love that it doesn’t have the “greasy” feel that some creams give off and doesn’t really have a minimum time to allow it to set. I just put on the rest of my make up after using it and my make up doesn’t melt off. Very nice stuff.

Overall I think it keeps my face hydrated and feeling fancy everyday. Who wouldn’t feel fancy rubbing gold flakes all over their face.

But as you guys know, I LOVE PACKAGING THE MOST! A good packaged item got me like bae. And Nature Republic has done wonderfully, to make it not only look high end but feel it too.

It’s a solid container, that has a nice screw on top, and a nice body to hold the cream as well. Plus it’s super sanitary with a little scooper that comes with it.

The fun part about this product was this is the first product I was actually able to see in the physical store. There was a Nature Republic in downtown LA, in Santee Alley.

I give it a 9/10. It was a a great cream, and I feel fancy while using it. But of course if you want to feel fancy you gotta pay that fancy price.

It retails like a high end cream, 66,000 Won in Korea.

But I found a amazon link for $36 here.

BNTgirl x THE LAVICOS Whitening C Ampoule

Continuing with the theme of a white Christmas, I’ll be reviewing another whitening product! At least something has to be white this Christmas, and it better be my face! I’m working towards being pale enough to wear my winter foundations again.

I’ll be reviewing, on Christmas, a whitening serum: THE LAVICOS Whitening C Ampoule!

It comes in a set of 4, each set to expire two weeks after it’s first  opened (or pumped). It’s suppose to be a continuous 4 week regiment added onto a routine or to replace the serum part of a skincare routine.

Unfortunately I could only use one bottle within two weeks, or maybe not so unfortunately, I want to make the product last I guess.

The picture makes it look like a HUGE set of four serums but they’re actually cute pump bottles the size of a mini serum. But each bottle contains a lot!

In order to first use it, it comes with a unique set of instructions, first pumped it once to break the seal and then shake it to mix in the vitamin C capsules with the rest of the serum!

As you can see below, in the new bottle it has a clear liquid on the bottom (serum) and some orange petite capsules of vitamins C, and Palmitoyl
Pentapeptide-3 which is a patented ingredient which is suppose to help with skin damage and help the overall appearance of the skin.MAKE MY SKIN RADIANT I WANT TO GLOW BRIGHTER THAN A FULL MOON!

I usually pump out one pump into the palm of my hand and then pat it into my face. Pat pat pat. It absorbs well, just sinks into my skin. Nothing much there, just nice absorption.

SAM_4592

I don’t know if you can see it, but it’s a orange liquid, and it has some shimmer to it which I think is totally adorable. What’s nice about this vit. C product is that it doesn’t only contain just vitamin C but it also contains other things (fermented too!) such as;  yeast of mistletoe, beans and extracts of Saccharomyces. Fancy, huh?

I think so. I personally couldn’t tell if it whitened me, so I asked my friend Mark, and he said my skin looked good, so maybe.

Side note: I found that vitamin C products usually broke me out, but this one didn’t.  So if you are sometimes prone to break outs with vitamin C but want to look more radiant with the help of vitamin C and it’s magic; maybe try this!

Overall I’d rate this a 7/10. I think I need to test it out further, but for now, it seems cool.

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.

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.
