Beauty Review – Sexylook Hello Kitty Moisturizing and Brightening Hyaluronic Mask

*This is NOT an advertorial and products were purchased with my own financial means.

All hail the updates on Beauty reviews! ūüôā

I bought these cute Hello Kitty mask from Sunnanz quite some time back and only managed to use them now, due to my overwhelming collection of masks. Threw away a handful of masks which I have been keeping for quite some time. Quite heart pain actually to see these lovely masks and $$$ gone.

Aren’t they cute?

I had to choose the one which best suited my skin condition at that time, so I chose Sexylook Hello Kitty Moisturizing and Brightening Hyaluronic Mask, because I felt my skin was losing radiance and getting duller as days go by. I have occasional dry skin at my nose areas too.

Sorry, forgot to snap a picture of the mask on my face because I was actually masking while packing my luggage for my bday cruise trip last week!

I know, multi-tasker. :p

Pros :

  1. Mask was filled with lots of thick essence
  2. There were remaining essence to further massage and lather onto skin and neck areas
  3. Instant brightening of the skin
  4. Shape and alignment was acceptable

Cons :

  1. Essence too drippy
  2. Had this weird smell, similar to cinnamon or something. Ugh.

I bought their Vitamin Creams as well – A, E and K – which I would leave it for reviews another day ūüôā So stay tuned!

As you can see, only the Bubble Powder Mask & Cleanser is available hence the purchase. This item is also used as the 1st step to the Pore Tightening 3-Step Programme. As I was looking for a clay mask instead of sheet masks, I decided to get this despite not having the other 2 items available. It didn’t matter to me.

It comes with a mixing bowl and brush. At first I was skeptical as to the quality of the brush, especially when it’s made in China, but it proves its worth. It’s really worth and easy to apply on your face. The mixing bowl is also made of rubber plastic instead of glass so there is no risk of breaking it.

A close-up :

And its functions :

Step 1 : Pour an appropriate amt into the bowl

Step 2 : Drip some water onto the powder – need to have a good estimation. Previously in my 1st attempt, I added too much water and the mask became extremely watery and drippy, and I couldn’t use it as a cleanser because I’ve ¬†already cleansed my face before. So it’s not wise to re-cleanse because it would strip off any natural moisture and oil from your skin.

Step 3 : Mix the powder and water together using the brush until it becomes a thick liquid

Step 4 : Apply and spread evenly on your face using the brush provided. Avoid areas around the lips (which I didn’t!) and eye areas.

Step 5 : Wash it off with water thoroughly after that.

So far, I’ve been using it as a mask and this is my 2nd attempt.

Pros :

  1. Helped clarified and removed some gunk I had on my cheeks and especially on my chin but not totally.
  2. Face looked instantly brighter and fairer
  3. Skin feels softer and smoother
  4. Mask hardens quite quickly but it also depends on how much water you use to mix
  5. Skin feels extremely tightened after that – but left me feeling rather dry too. Can’t decide which is which.

Cons :

  1. Still left with some stubborn gunk on my face
  2. Need to have a good estimation of the qty of powder to be used as well as how much water is required to create a tacky clay mask
  3. A tad difficult to wash off as there were some residue left even after washing

Tried the Lovemore My Melody Oil Free 3D mask in pink for whitening last night!

My Melody Oil Free Whitening 3D Fitting Mask is enriched with Vitamin C and Buddleja, provides protection against environmental stressors.

Jiro Wang – New endorser for Lovemore!

Soaked in essence of goodness! ūüėÄ

This mask is in 3D form which supposedly gives you a better fit for your face shape. But knowing that I have a sharp and small face, it was too big for my face. I extended the below to my neck as well. And I know this picture is somewhat disturbing.

Raves :

  1. Instant brightening of the skin
  2. Awesome whitening effects
  3. Helps to adequately moisturise the skin
  4. Not oily, woke up to a less oily skin the next morning
  5. Mask sheet is thick, not flimsy Рmade of high quality!
  6. Smells great! Sweet-smelling strawberry-like fragrance!
Rants :
  1. 3D form didn’t suit me well
  2. And I tore it accidentally along the dotted lines

Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++

Sponsored Advertorial

Snow white porcelain skin is what every woman wants to achieve and sunblock lotions are definitely a must-have!

For those who are 1st timers and guilt-strickened like me, here’s why sunblock lotions are important!

Sunblock should be used to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Ultraviolet (UV) rays provide humans some benefits including the induction of vitamin D production in the skin, but these rays can also be harmful. Too much exposure to UV rays can result in sunburn and even sun poisoning. Repeated excessive exposure can lead to skin cancer. Those who spend time in the sun are encouraged to use sunblock products in order to avoid skin damage.

Skin Aqua has recently launched its nice product!

Introducing New Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++

Yes, SPF 50 PA++ !!! It’s double the amount of the previous products!

What is SPF? 

The sun protection factor (SPF) of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen ‚ÄĒ the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers against UV-B (the ultraviolet radiation that causes¬†sunburn).

Tired of greasy, strong-smelling sunscreen? Skin Aqua is ultra light with its Japanese watery liquid texture. The lotion is comfy and absorbs quickly without giving a white cast. It is non-greasy with a matt powdery finish for the perfect make-up primer. Non-sticky no matter how many times you re-apply.

Skin Aqua is fragrance, color, alcohol and oil free, and is suitable for all skin types.

Skin Aqua has Solarex-3, a revolutionary formula with 3 comprehensive levels of UV defense. It protects skin from surface to deep within for long hours. Super hydrating too!

The New Generation Solarex-3 (3-in-1 Sun Protection) 
1) Long Lasting, Superior UV Protection: Advanced photo-stability with the highest UVA & UVB protection for long periods of safe sun exposure. UV rays are reflected away like from a mirror.
2) UV Anti-Aging Protection: Two powerful anti-aging ingredients, RonaCare Exotin and French Golden Algae, help to prevent pigmentation and wrinkles from surface to deep within.
3) Intense Hydration (Dryness Protection): Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen & Vitamin E intensely hydrate and lock-in moisture for long hours, so skin stays refreshingly moist.

As you can see from the above picture, this new product is definitely NOT greasy at all! I applied on my face and body before heading out to Gardens by the Bay last Sunday! Did not experience any greasiness nor sun burnt on my skin and am very satisfied with¬†Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++! ūüôā

The SUNPLAY Skin Aqua range is available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, Unity and other major department stores.

Beauty Review – Beauty Clinic Mediheal I.P.I Lightmax Ampoule Mask

Aloha! I am back with beauty reviews, in particular, for this mask I’d tried last night!

I.P.I Lightmax Ampoule Mask by Beauty Clinic Mediheal ! ūüôā

I’ve been using skincare targetting repairing of skin problems by Secret Key¬†which I¬†absolutely¬†adore, so I’ve decided to swing back to my whitening skincare regime with a whitening mask this time round!

I’ve always loved Beauty Clinic/Leaders InSolution masks because their mask sheets are made of awesome quality! Its sheet is thick and does not tear easily. Honestly, so far, I’ve not tore any of their sheet masks unlike other brands ūüė¶

Raves :

  1. Mask made of high quality
  2. Essence doesn’t drip and is of thick and viscous liquid
  3. Instant brightening/whitening effect
  4. Skin was more soft and supple
  5. Noticed radiance on my skin after removing mask!

Rants :

  1. Face a little oily, might be because I’d applied too much essence from the remaining in the packet, could have used it on other body areas such as the neck.
