SHEET MASKS
SHEET MASKS
I used to be obsessed with sheet masks and would apply them almost everyday, but I’ve been way too lazy lately lol! Anyways, these are my go-to sheet masks — Dermal’s Collagen Essence Mask. They’re simple, affordable and effective. I get them from my local Asian supermarket for $1.99 which is an absolute steal! There are so many different kinds, that targets many different concerns. But one thing they all have in common is that they are moisturizing. I believe all skin types can benefit from these masks depending on people’s individual concerns, whether you’re looking for something that’s firming, brightening, soothing, refunding or whatever else. There are literally so many to choose from! My favourite one is the aloe, which is both moisturizing and soothing. It’s super perfect for my dry, sensitive skin. I especially like using it after picking at my face, when I have a ton of inflamed spots lol! It has a typical sheet mask texture (I think this one is made with plastic fiber) and plenty of essence, that’s lightweight and non-sticky! One use is usually enough to calm down my skin, and the effects are immediate. I like how the eye area is not completely cut out and you can actually cover your eye lids with it, which is very relaxing! I also like to use a facial roller with this mask, to ensure that the essence is able to penetrate deeper and gets fully absorbed. I use the left over essence on other parts of my body like my elbows and knees to moisturize them because they’re the driest part of my body. I’ve tried most of the different masks and I’ve never ever had any problem with the scent because there is none lol! I’ve been using these masks for years and I always repurchase them. You seriously can’t beat the price! Definitely worth trying out and I highly, highly recommend it. **(would rate it 5/5 if the product was available to be tagged)**

TATA HARPER EYE SERUM
TATA HARPER EYE SERUM
I’d rather get coal than this @tataharper boujee eye serum aka elixir vitae eye serum. This product is formulated to target severe under eye wrinkles and eye bags. It’s supposed to smooth out the under eye area to reduce the look of fine lines, as well as address the accumulation of “fat” under the eyes to reduce the appearance of puffiness. First of all, I don’t have severe wrinkles or extreme eye bags, so I’m probably the worse person to ever try this out lol! Second, it smells awful. I absolutely hate overly scented product and this one is for sure up there. The texture also feels somewhat tacky and takes a while to absorb. But it never irritated my eyes, so that’s one of the good things I can say about it. Lastly, I did not see any major results during the 2 and half weeks that I spent using it. It slightly made my under eyes look brighter, but I have other eye creams that do the same plus more for a fraction of the cost of this one. I also couldn’t continue using it because the smell bothered me so much.. I’m not going to lie, I had really high expectations for this little guy considering the cost but I was clearly left disappointed. My biggest take away from this is that just because certain products costs more, it doesn’t mean that they will deliver the exceptional results you’re anticipating. So overall, would highly NOT recommend it. Save your money and buy something else. Unless you’re boujee and have severe wrinkles and eye bags, you might actually want to try it out. In that case, please let me know how you like it and if it works for you! TATA HARPER - Elixir Vitae Eye Serum

LIP SCRUB
LIP SCRUB
It’s crazy how often I have to use lip scrubs in the winter. My poor lips are always so dry and flaky no matter what I do! But my absolute favourite lip scrub is this one from @bybi. This little guy is small but so mighty! It contains brown sugar granules which gives it the grainy texture and helps exfoliate dry, flakey, chapped lips. It also contains shea butter and oils, such as cherry oil, to hydrate your lips. I swear this lip scrub makes my lips so plump, it’s crazy LOL! Especially when I use it with the plumping lip balm. It has a very cinnamon-y scent and flavour but nothing too overwhelming. I use this baby at least 2-3 times a week and I’m surprised that it’s actually lasting! I really like how the brown sugar granules are bigger than most lip scrubs I’ve tried, so it exfoliates really well without it being overly abrasive. I only gave it a 4 star because of the price and how small the product is. I wish they would make it a tad bit bigger for the same price. But regardless of this, I would still highly recommend this lip scrub. I used to be obsessed with lush’s lip scrubs, but this one is honestly so much better!

K-BEAUTY MOISTURIZER
K-BEAUTY MOISTURIZER
Going to start by saying: if you have dry skin and live in extreme cold, then you need to run to the nearest Sephora and grab @drjart’s ceramidin cream! This is by far the best product and moisturizer I’ve discovered this year. It is super duper moisturizing and contains 5-cera complex (ceramides) which overall help strengthen the skin barrier and prevent moisture and water loss. The texture is quite thicccc and feels like butter (it’s soooo smooth)! It spreads super easily and never ever feels heavy on the skin. Anyone who struggles with dryness, itchiness, roughness and skin irritations will highly benefit from this cream. It’s not only moisturizing, but it’s also soothing and calming. I’ve been using this moisturizer every night since winter started and I cannot imagine my skincare routine without it. I always wake up with soft, moisturized skin. I’m so obsessed! I know this cream may not be for everyone, but if you struggle with dry skin then I HIGHLY recommend trying it out. It’s honestly SO worth the money. I would repurchase it over and over again because youu absolutely get what you pay for! A little bit also goes a long way, so it’ll last you quite a while. The last thing I will say is that the hype is SO real! Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream

TONER FOR DRY SKIN
TONER FOR DRY SKIN
I’m personally not into toners. I just don’t think they do much for my skin. But when gothamista recommended this, @imfrom rice toner, I had to try it! This toner consists of 77.78% rice extract which is extremely moisturizing and brightening. It also forms a protective barrier over the skin to prevent water loss and overall rebalances dry, lacklustre skin. The texture is quite interesting because it has a double layer consisting of a water and emulsion layer, so you have to shake it to ensure that both layers are mixed well before using. You can use a cotton pad or your fingers to apply the product. I personally prefer my fingers/palms. I’ve had this toner for a little over a year now and I do like it, but I’ve been quite inconsistent with it, so I can’t really speak on it’s full potential. What I can say is that it makes my skin feel less tight, a lot softer and more supple whenever I use it. I also find that it’s quite calming which my sensitive skin really appreciates. I think this toner is very unique so I would definitely recommend trying it out. I know it’s not that cheap, which can turn most people off, but if you have dry skin that needs some major TLC, then I would suggest considering this toner. I love this brand and their products so much, especially their masks. I feel like they’re so underrated! I got this from wishtrend btw, in case you have trouble searching for it online!

VERSED GEL-CREAM MOISTURIZER
VERSED GEL-CREAM MOISTURIZER
@versed dew point moisturizer is a gel-cream moisturizer that seems very basic but it’s actually SO good. It literally feels exactly like how you would think a gel-cream would be like, but has a more watery texture once applied to the skin and is extremely refreshing and hydrating. I love keeping it in my my skincare fridge and I usually use it in the morning, which really wakes up my skin and gives it the extra plump is needs. I also appreciate that it’s non-greasy and never leaves a sticky residue. I think this moisturizer is great for all skin types, as it is not overly heavy nor is it too lightweight. If you’re dry, it’ll definitely give you the hydration you need. If you’re oily/combo, it’ll help balance out your skin and give you just enough hydration. It’s also very gentle and those with sensitive, acne-prone skin should be ok with it too (as someone who struggled with both, I personally haven’t had any problem with it). I’ve been using this product since the end of summer and I absolutely love it. I can definitely see myself repurchasing it over and over again. If you’re looking for a new moisturizer that is extremely affordable ($15!!!!), then I highly recommend checking this baby out! It may also be important to note that versed is clean, cruelty-free and vegan ☺️ VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream
