My Beloved Masks--SK-II & Fresh BLACK TEA
SK-II and Fresh BLACK TEA are my favorite masks. I am really addicted to these two products since they are really effective in hydrating and soothing the skin instantly. I would not hesitate to use one of them to lighten and moisturize my skin especially for some important occasions. SK-II FACIAL TREATMENT MASK: I love it soooo much!!! It is so fantastic since it has much serum. I always apply the extra serum on my feet and neck. In addition, it can calm down my skin and make my face hydrated perfectly. This one is really amazing since my skin would be younger and healthier after using it immediately. You cannot imagine how happy I am when I see myself in front of the mirror after applying this one. Fresh BLACK TEA: It is the most pleasant mask I have ever used since the scent is a mix of natural plant which really comforts me. Unlike the texture of SK-II, Fresh BLACK TEA is a clay mask which means you have to wash it after 10 to 15 minutes. If SK-II is the king of moisturizing the skin, then Fresh BLACK TEA would be the queen of lightening the skin. I always use Fresh BLACK TEA firstly and apply SK-II for replenishing water to the skin after that. I can say that the combination of this usage pattern is really amazing. Conclusion: If I have to choose only one mask from these two beloved ones, I would pick up SK-II since it does not need to wash off which is more convenient for lazy me. Totally, I recommend these two masks enthusiastically. Although they are a little bit expensive, they really deserve.

Holy grails! My secret weapons to deal with emergency!!!
There is no superhero in our life to save us, but I believe we all have one or two secret products that can act as heroes to save us from a skin emergency. What I love to share are these two products that have already rescued me for so many times, from meetings to interviews. Nothing is perfect, but this Out of Trouble Mask ORIGINS - Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skinis perfect for me, and it is super timesaving when I have some dead skins to clean or need to fight inflammation or pimples. This mask contains camphor, zinc oxide, and salicylic acid to calm skin, absorb excess oil, and unclog pores. It is especially good for people with combination/oily skin like me, and what I do is just to apply to T-zone and areas that are really rough and flaky, wait for 8 minutes, and wash off using makeup pads. The smell is like camphor ball, but I kinda like it, and the price of it is very nice to my wallet as well. Highly recommend this one to you. Another skincare hero saved me from an emergency is this SK-II face mask.SK-II - Pitera Facial Treatment Mask To be honest, I was shocked by its price but all of my friends recommended this to me, and I have to say that it is worth the praise. It is weird to say but it smells like spit, but the effect is amazing. I put it on after cleansing my face, and wait for 15 minutes, take it off and gently massage the rest essence on the face, then a light moisturizer. My face is never this bright and hydrated! And my pores also get smaller as well, which is something I would never expect from a sheet mask. I know some people will say the price is beyond the budget. But if you have the chance to try it, or with some really important events coming up, these amazing stuff will not let you down!
My tips to an all-day glowy makeup!
We all love perfect look with a flawless makeup over our skin, but that usually comes with a bunch of products and so many steps to follow, not to mention the time spend every day on this. Actually, a great makeup with a high coverage does not require that many steps and here are some of my easy tips to create a glowy, healthy everyday look. My face is in combination state and can be very dry sometimes. After cleansing my skin, what I do is to immediately put on a hydrating mask for a few minutes. I choose sheet mask if I have some important events since it provides deeper hydration. But on a daily base, I usually use a gel mask and it is easy to apply and wash off. The one I am using is the Rose Stem Mask from Peter Thomas Roth, a very high-tech brand and I really love this the quenching and hydrating feeling on my face. After that, I apply my regular serum and sunscreen. What I want to mention is that when season changes, my face gets really dry and sensitive, and I started to use this Bobbi Brown moisturiser and it feels smells so good and does not make my face angry at all. It is so important for me now as a perfect makeup base and I use it every day to avoid crease and dryness. My face also looks brighter after using it because it has vitamin C and E to fight oxidants and pollutants. The last tip I want to share is very easy and I think many people are already doing this: use hydrating spray on sponge. I like to use my spray on face whenever I need some water to quench my dry skin. The sponge absorbs some spray and mixes with the foundation to make the look more hydrating and adhering, and the makeup lasts longer. These are some of my tips I like to share with you and please let me know if you have some different makeup secrets to create a flawless look!
Worth the hype?
Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque dermalogica - Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask This is a must-have all year round. It is great as an SOS face mask for instant recovery after staying up late, making my skin feel delicate and translucent.👍 The masque cream will gradually oxidize and deepen in color when used. Filorga Meso-MaskFILORGA - 'Meso-Mask' Anti-Wrinkle Lightening Mask It brightens up my skin but not as naturally as how the Dermalogica mask brightens it. I will not be repurchasing it because it contains titanium dioxide.👎 Farmacy Honey Mask FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask The mask emulsified after massaging it as instructed. It felt warm when applied, which made me excited to see the results. However, it started to tingle a little as I was washing it off. It might be due to its deep cleansing properties but it's too irritable for sensitive skins. After washing it off, I felt no difference, while the tingling sensation lasted a few minutes. I will not repurchase this product.👎
FILORGA-'Meso-Mask' Anti-Wrinkle Lightening Mask
lamer - Brilliance Brightening Gel Mask & Soothing Primer. THE CLAIMS: ♥️ Skin is deeply hydrated allowing skin glow. MY RESULTS: ♥️ I’ve been using this mask 1-2 times per week for 8 months. I’m still on the first pot so like all my other La Mer items they last such a long time. . ♥️ The mask comes in the duo and you apply 1-2 pumps of the serum on face, neck and chest and then you apply the gel mask on top, I prefer to use clean hands to apply mask rather than the brush that’s included as I feel you use too much product that way. . ♥️ I wear it overnight, so when I apply it I then use my nurse jamie uplift tool for 14 minutes to help the product absorb, and when I wake up in the morning my skin is so soft and smooth and hydrated. . ♥️ It took 3 weeks for me to see a dramatic difference in brightness of my skin, it really started to make my skin shine and glow. I also noticed it softened fine lines around my eyes, think this was because it made me super hydrated. I know your not meant to wear masks around your eyes unless it’s specific eye masks but I do it with this one and to date I’ve never had an issue. ♥️ Sometimes I add oils into the gel mask as well if I’m extra dehydrated and it mixes well.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask
this is a silky soft, skin-fitting sheet mask that is supposed to deliver a healthy drink of ultra-hydrating botanical oils and extracts for a dewy glow in just one use. it’s targeted to address dullness, dryness & fine lines I’ve tried this product once & i gotta say, this mask is definitely a treat - it contains 20mg of product for $12 so it’s definitely not cheap! I picked up one of these from a Sephora gift set, which allowed me to try multiple products for $15 — if it wasn’t for that price point, I wouldn’t have gotten this but my thoughts? I think that the texture was similar to most face masks - the fiber was plush & filled with serum. it did leave my skin feeling softer & more hydrated but to say it helped with fine lines would be a stretch the issue I have with this product is that it contains both alcohol & fragrance, both of which are damaging to the skin barrier — I made the mistake of putting this one first and then reading up on the ingredients after, so while I wanted to love this, I have to give this one star based on the fact that it contains harmful ingredients that could compromise the skin barrier in the long run for that price point, I think you can try many other face masks that deliver similar results - sorry ya’ll but can’t recommend this one TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask
TATCHA-Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask
SK-ll - Facial Treatment Mask 5/5 Claims to make skin brighter, intensely hydrates, plumps and elevates smoothness of skin - Does it ALL Hydration - 5/5 Scent - 4/5 Residue - Non-sticky Fit - Thick mask, fits perfectly Parabens - Yes ——— I saved this $17 mask for a special occasion and I guess my SK-ll week is one. 5/5, surprised? This is essentially the same ingredients as the treatment essence, which made me doubt it. However, I think this is my preferable way of using this SK-II essence; once in a while! Outstanding results, my skin was smooth, soft, glowy and ready for anything. Best sheetmask I have ever used. Left me nourished and hydrated and everything else in the book. Waste of time that I didn’t go out tonight lol, my face is impeccable. It is a thick mask, but it’s perfectly cut so you can apply it how you want and so it fits around the face, covers literally everywhere and the material is outstanding. It lasts a long time and just leaves your skin flawless. Only issue for me is the price but I try not to involve pricing that much in my reviews as everyone’s income/values are different! And also after an hour or so, the dried down essence started peeling. So I washed it off but my face looked amazing. Only good things to say about this. If you have some extra $$$ to spend for an exclusive night out or special event or if you want to have this as your regular mask, it’s totally worth it. Purchased at skii - $17

Top 3 Masks: Fresh Black Tea
Ok so, it will become well known that I love Fresh beauty as I continue to review things on here but where I think they really excel is with their MASKS. Specifically, the black tea instant perfecting mask. This is easily one of my top 3 faves because it gives immediate results. It’s cooling, soothing, and mega plumping for the skin with effects that last considerably after removing it! It’s got a complex of kombucha, black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract, and lychee leaf extract to pack a serious punch of antioxidant, anti-dullness, and complexion perfecting benefits. Plus soothing rice ferment filtrate! It’s a bit of a strange, gritty/grainy texture and feels weird to apply - almost like it’s pilling or something BUT the effects feel amazing on the face. If you have the coin to shell out (she pricey at $42CAD for only 1oz) or wait for a set that includes it, it’s definitely worth having in your collection for an instant pick me up. I love to save it for nights out or special occasions for this reason!
Stay up late? This mask can save your skin!!!😱😱😱
dermalogica - Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask I actually bought the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask by accident. I decided to keep it and give it a try and I am so glad that I did! Every time i have to stay up late, I'll use it. For me, it's the best mask for night owls. I call this the 911 mask because it has everything you need. If you ever have a long night or didn’t get any sleep, I slap this baby on and it literally gives my skin life. It is on the pricey side, but investing in good quality skincare isn’t cheap. This nutrient-rich mask is the ultimate anti-aging remedy for stressed, dull skin. Powered by hyaluronic acid and vegan peptides, this creamy rinse-off mask stimulates collagen production, tightens skin and smooths the appearance of wrinkles. Concentrated vitamin a, vitamin c, vitamin e, and vitamin f work together to shield and help skin recover from sun and pollution damage that causes skin aging.I like using my fingers apply generously to cleansed face and neck, avoiding the eye area. After 10-15 minutes, gently, yet thoroughly rinse with warm water. I cannot rate Dermalogica products highly enough… and I have always recommended it no matter what; as their products are pH balanced so they are safe for all skin types. And most of the general cleansers, toners, and skin treatments they are pretty safe for any skin type but you do want to make sure you select the right products for your specific skin care concerns as you would with any other line. This mask is everything if you need to pack some moisture into your skin. It does have vitamin A, C, E, and F and it is simply rich in multiple nutrients that will help moisturize and keep the skin looking soft and supple. Besides, it indeed help restore the signs of damage and aging while enhancing barrier properties. After I use this mask, I always see an immediate shift in the moisture in my skin and it maintains this moisture for quite some time afterward... definitely recommend this for anyone with moisture issues or aging skin. One thing need to mention is that it's very moisturizing so it's probably not great for oily skin in summer. I like how it's a wash off mask that isn't a clay mask which is a perfect pick me up for dry winter skin.
