[Beauty Review] b.liv Absolute Matte Mask

I don’t know about you, but I notice that when that time of the month is nearing, my skin gets oilier than usual. Blame it on the hormones man!

I don’t have oily skin type and I belong to the combination skin type, so frequent touching up of makeup at the T-zone areas is required, especially so during this period.

I was fortunate enough to be sent b.liv Absolute Matte Mask which many raved about and was able to experience the aftermath effects myself!

b.liv has also kindly sent me their TOP selling product – Off with those black heads serum to try which I will blog about it another day 🙂

Pros :

  1. The mask sheet is thick and not flimsy, hence does not tear easily
  2. Sebum production reduced
  3. Lesser need to touch-up my T-zone areas which means lesser clogged pores!
  4. Skin feels matte after removal and still matte after applying my Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Serum and Emulsion

Cons :

  1. Varies individually but those with oily eyelids may prefer for the eyelids flap as well

On the whole, this mask would benefit those with oily skin type as well as combination skin type. Comes in handy especially during the period nearing that time of the month.

Beauty Review : Home-based Facial Salon at Lovely Face Spa (Tampines)

To be honest, I don’t go for facials. The only time I’ve went for one was kindly sponsored by Navara Beauty. I don’t even mask at home anymore, heck!

Recently, one of my gf introduced me to Lovely Face Spa at Tampines which she mentioned was highly raved by many girls online.

My concerns for my face are :-

1. Oily T-zone (I have combi skin)

2. Clogged pores, especially on my nose, black and white heads. Very annoying.

3. My incurable and hopeless dark circles

4. Freckles, which I have had since I was a kid?

5. Visible large pores on my nose and cheek areas

Complimented by many, my skin condition is actually very good since I don’t do much maintenance. Even the lady boss, Tiffany, of LFS said so 🙂 So yes, I am indeed very blessed but of course, I don’t have flawless perfect fair and porcelain-like skin.

I opted for the ‘Essential Glow Facial’ as well as the ‘Eye Treatment’. I was told that if I were to do Acid peels, eye treatment would be impossible.

Acid peel would help to target my freckles and uneven skin tone mainly.

I was more concerned with the stupid clogged pores and dark circles, hence the choice.

Extracted from LFS’s website :

Essential Glow Facial (120 mins) @ $68

A deep-cleansing, moisturizing and tension-relieving facial that hydrates skin, leaving it youthful and supple.

A Pampering and Relaxing Facial which includes
– Double Cleansing, Skin Analysis, Pre-Treatment Lotion and Steaming

– Exfoliation

– Extraction and High Frequency Machine (anti-bacterial),

– Cold Hammer with Ampoule from France, customised to your skin type

– Eye-brow trimming

– Lifting/Firming Eye Massage to combat puffiness and dark circles
– Moisturising and Lifting Eye Mask

Plus
– Lymphatic Suction Machine to improve lymphatic drainage, eliminate toxins and increase cell metabolism.

This helps to reduce skin imperfection as this machine helps in better facilitation of waste products (sweat and toxin) removal via lymphatic drainage system.
– Customised Soft Mask prescribed by certified Aesthetician for your skin conditions

– Signature Face Lifting Massage to firm up and tone your skin, improve skin’s elasticity, and improves skin texture while maintaining moisture content in skin cells

– Enjoy a relaxing Head plus Shoulder Massage to soothe your tired nerves

– Lastly, a Hot Towel to melt away your tension

Radio Frequency Eye Treatment (30 mins) – $38

-Combats puffiness & dark eye rings
-Hydrates the eye area
– Improves circulation around the eye area

*Able to combine with facial except acid treatment

If you choose to do both the Essential Glow Facial with Eye treatment, the latter would cost $28 instead of $38.

I paid a total of $96.

Here is how the mini salon looks like.

I must say the ambience is quite okay. Bright orange colours for the cheery burst of energy mood.

And another.

The area behind the bed.

So you can see, the area is not that big but still ample. It’s the size of a normal HDB room.

Tiffany previously worked at beauty salons so she has had ample experience. Her skills and techniques are quite okay.

Her customer service is good too.

I received a follow-up sms from her few days later after the facial.

The problem with me going to facial is that, I have a hard time judging if it’s effective on my skin. Because mainly, I don’t have much problems with it compared to someone who has acne problems which did/didn’t reduce after going for facial.

The extraction was not as painful as I’d thought it would be and what my friend mentioned. Guess it’s also because I didn’t have much to extract but there were some painful ones at the sides of the nose and near my brows.

Pores seemed clean after extraction but I could still see some clogged ones.

Visible large pores remain…visible and large.

What I like about her facial package is that she helps you to trim your brows, which I suck at. Because I shave rather than pluck, there were many ingrowns which sometimes cause inflammations and acne. Tiffany had painstakingly tried to pluck out all the ingrowns which I’m quite satisfied about 🙂

There were moments which made me felt uncomfortable, for example when the electrolysis-like machine was used. You would feel that your skin is getting electrocuted. I can’t remember what is that machine called and for though, because there were so many stuffs used…

The package also includes head and shoulder massages which I need so badly….And the massage session lasted longer than I’d expected. That goes to show that Tiffany doesn’t cut ‘costs’ which I like very much. 🙂

My dark circles still remained nevertheless and I fully understand that the solution to skin problems is not a miraculously one-off incident. You will need to constantly maintain and review.

But I also know that clogged pores and dark circles will always recur. Clogged pores arise due to dirt, impurities and of course our humid climate in Singapore while dark circles, well, lack of rest, straining of eyes and using of gadgets…

I feel that these problems will never efface 😦

So is this facial worth it for me?

I would say I don’t think I will be going back, since I don’t have much of a problem (which can be solved) for my skin.

I wouldn’t say that Tiffany’s skills and equipment aren’t good but just that, I wouldn’t want to spend so much on facials in general.

She is still very highly raved by many others though 🙂

Collagen helps in slowing down the natural process of skin aging. It has great moisturizing benefits and excellent hydration properties. When applied topically, like in the form of a mask, the skin absorbs the substance & increase its own natural production of the protein. It can even out fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Perfect treatment for chronic dry skin.

Sheep Placenta works under the same fundamental theory of cell therapy, a process of introducing new cells into a tissue in order to rebuild and revitalize ailing or aging tissues, stimulating the cells of specific organ systems and optimizes/restores their functions. Henceforth, sheep placenta helps to prevent the formation of “age spots”, reduce appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. It is a nutritional supplement branded by many as the “Rolls Royce of all Nutritional Supplements”.

Witch Hazel is a mightily useful little medicinal marvel. Its uses and properties are unique and vast. Due to the anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties that witch hazel has, it can reduce inflammation on a pimple and itching on the skin. Furthermore, it soothes and prevents a razor burn or sunburn. Daily use significantly tightens up the skin and helps with acne. Moreover, it can reduce eye bags, treat dry skin and encourage quicker healing of minor skin breaks. Not to mention, it is good for refreshing tired eyes and bring a natural scent to the skin.

Beauty Review – Fancl Whitening Mask

Hello all beauty junkies! I am back with another set of beauty reviews! And this post that I’m writing will be on a NON-sponsored product – Fancl Whitening Mask!

Photo 04-06-2013 10 07 17 PM Photo 04-06-2013 10 09 03 PM Photo 04-06-2013 10 11 07 PM Photo 04-06-2013 10 12 33 PM

I’ve always been a fan of Fancl, although I must warn you that their pills (Calorie Limit & Perfect Slim Alpha) were of no effect for me when I took them many years back.

Other than that, I have tried their whitening products (FANCL’s limited edition Perfect Whitening Kit) and I liked their Whitening Clear Mask.

I’m not too sure if they still sell them because they have launched a new range of whitening series.

Fancl Whitening Mask

Pros :

  • Immediate whitening effect – Similar to the Whitening Clear Mask
  • Lightened 1 of my pimple scar which was recent on my left cheek (Sorry no pics for comparison but trust me on this)
  • Even has flaps for the eyelids

Cons :

  • Pungent alcohol smell!
  • There weren’t much remaining essence left in the pack compared to other masks

Overall rating :

4 stars

On an another note, y skin’s condition seems to be worsening recently and I’m not too sure of the reason. It has its ‘dry periods’ whereby the skin on my nose will peel for no apparent reason. Thus, the only logical reason I could think of was due to hormones. Yeah, blame everything on the hormones, lol.

Other than that, my chin and mouth areas seem to be clogged with dirt, hence producing white heads. And when these white heads are provoke, i.e. me trying to squeeze them out or by merely poking them, I would break out the next day. This causes acne, which is extremely embarrassing.

I don’t usually break out for no reason because my skin condition is quite good, relatively.

I’m not sure if it’s caused by the skinbotics which I’d blogged about here, or the SK II stem cell cream I’d used for a few days, excessive consumption of coffee or the lack of sleep/late nights? Maybe it’s the lack of exercise.

No idea man, but whatever it is, I’m always breaking out at my chin areas. See pictures here.

Extracted from that post :

Acne
  • Reduce the habit of eating before bed
  • Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Get more rest
  • Get your hormones checked for imbalances
  • Get 20 minutes of exercise each day
  • Sleep early and wake up early, getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night
  • Reduce stress as much as possible (yoga, meditating, listening to music, writing in a journal, etc.)
  • Massage your body for relaxation, particularly the abdomen
  • Practice proper hygiene
  • Check toothpaste, mouthwash, and chapsticks
  • Drink spearmint tea
  • Take omega-3s to help regulate hormones

So what did I say? It could seem that most of the factors I’ve listed down to be the culprits.

Here’s a poor reso selfie on good skin days… SIGH.

Beauty Reviews – Sasatine Aloe & Olive Mask and SkinBiotics

Photo 29-03-2013 01 59 57 PM

 

Remember I blogged about trying out Skinbotics just about a week or so ago?

10 days into trying it out, I have to say that I am utterly disappointed in it.

Despite the ravings which you would come across by googling, I might just be the first to rant about it.

I wouldn’t say that Reactiv 01 doesn’t prove itself to be effective in terms of lightening your skin and to promote better skin complexion and radiance, but ever since I’ve been consuming it, I have had breakouts.

Why am I 99.9999% sure that the breakouts were/are caused by Skinbotics?

  1. I know I have done up an entry post about face mapping with regards to the acne locations on your face and its meaning, and I have experienced breakouts at zone 2 (in between my brows), zone 9 (on my right cheek) and zone 12 (on my chin) and not really zone 7 (nose – but inside my nostrils!). 
  2. I may be blessed with quite a good skin complexion and with the understanding of my own skin, I do know that I don’t breakout except when it’s nearing that time of the month due to hormonal changes.
  3. I have not used ‘new’ products which might attribute to this cause.
  4. I do not have sensitive skin or any known skin allergy, so I don’t usually breakout when experimenting with new products.
  5. I have been breaking out ever since the consumption of Skinbotics.
  6. It might due to stress, I will not rule out this factor since my exams are just next month and I’m cramping for it. But usually, I do not breakout consistently even when under stress.
  7. I will try and see if it’s really the cause by stopping my consumption for the time being. But it might not be 100% accurate because the time of the month is nearing (P*Log reminded me) and I’m still quite stressed out by exams. This also explains that I am only 99.9999% certain that the breakouts were caused by Skinbotics Reactiv 01.

***

Because I was breaking out and still am, I’ve decided to cast aside my laziness and slap a mask on it. Because Aloe Vera has soothing and calming properties on red skin, I decided to slap on any Aloe vera mask I could find at home. This also served as a reminder that I should stock up other brands of aloe vera mask should this current mask from Sasatine not work, because I’ve never trusted house brands.

Pros :

  • Skin looked brighter instantly
  • Quite well-hydrated
  • Didn’t cause extra oiliness the next morning (I usually wake up to a slightly oily skin the next day)
  • Contained lots of essence to lather and massage on your face and neck after mask removal
  • Might have helped to calm down 1 of my breakouts – but might be due to the pimple cream I applied (I’m using Mentholatum).

Cons :

  • Sheet mask is made of poor quality. Tore it even were mere slight strength. TWICE.

Overall rating :

3 stars

I think it’s still acceptable and since I’m on tight budget (due to overspending on shopping =x) and I still have tons of other masks lying around, I’ll stick to this for the time being when I need to calm my skin down.
