tldr; found beauty’s papaya enzyme mask = five minutes to brighter skin. 💛💛💛💛💛 for convenience, effectiveness and gentleness!
Papaya and pineapple extracts naturally help exfoliate skin to reveal a brighter complexion. Exfoliating (sparingly) also helps with hyper-pigmentation and texture. My skin is super sensitive and prone to scarring so gentle, non physical exfoliators are the way to go.
🍍smells so yummy! like a freshly cut papaya. nothing strong or chemical.
🍍goopy, but not super liquid texture and super easy to spread. a little goes a long way!
🍍if it’s been cold in the morning this also feels really good to slather on! so maybe you can stick it in the fridge.
🍍brightening! I definitely look have a glow after using this and I think it’s because it evens out my skin pretty immediately.
🍍super restorative! skin looks and feels more awake - love this for nights after too much wine/other things when I wake up feeling gray and dull.
🍍super quick - my favorite part is that I can wear this for 5 min (sometimes 10) and get noticeable results.
Papaya, lemon juice (YMMV), water, honey, sugarcane extract, sunflower seed oil etc.
Found & Walmart claim that the entire product line is “95% natural”, which I actually don’t know the technical/legal meaning of when it comes to skincare products.
YES. Only $11.88 + 2 day free ship @ Walmart.com/stores
Disclaimer: found is walmart’s new natural private label skincare and cosmetics line and I work for WM.com but - as with everything I post - I bought this on my own and am doing the review BECAUSE I LOVE IT.
Quick mini review of the #swanicoco Bio Daily Nature Swan Mask Pack that came in the travel set I bought
🕊 Claims are for whitening and wrinkle-care
🕊 So many fun ingredients (once I looked up the English - thanks @w2beauty_official)
🕊 Light smell upon opening, but not strong enough to bother me
🕊 Mask was strangely wide with large holes (picture 4) - if I had scissors, I would have cut the excess off the sides and used them around my eyes and mouth
🕊 Wore for 35 minutes and mask still hadn't dried completely
🕊 Product felt nice, dried pretty quickly with no odd residue
🕊 Skin felt a bit brighter and hydrated, but I honestly did not notice any sort of anti-wrinkle effect (but I generally don't from a mask)
🕊 Verdict: It's nice, but I'm not going to pay $5-8/mask for it
tldr: @enessaorganicskincare’s tumeric gel is potent and worth every drop. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. the goat.
tumeric reduces inflammation, eliminates bacteria and calms skin and this bottle is nothing but pure goodness. enessa makes all their products in small batches and uses no preservatives whatsoever making this quite the pricey half ounce. BUT... tumeric, for me, has proven to be a miracle ingredient — a combination of diet, a bad break up and moving to a new city resulted in cysts + constant stress breakouts and this little baby bottle was the only thing that started to curb and rebalance my skin (still on the journey tho!). I’ve tried a few tumeric serums in hopes of finding a cheaper dupe and maybe I could try to DIY this, but enessa’s bottle is bar none the best. -
🌼 A little goes a long way, one pump and you can pat it all around your face.
🌼 Smells light, but real and fresh, nothing synthetic.
🌼 Absorbs fast - I use it right after toner.
🌼 Calm skin, see an immediate reduction in new blemishes the next morning
🌼 Decongested pores, haven’t dealt with bumpy little problem spots on my cheekbones since starting this
🌼 Reduced redness around nose and chin -
🌼 Bakuchiol, Chestnut, Licorice root, Turmeric essential oil, Niacinamide
Yes, but I know $43 might be a lot for .5 oz. Can last 2 months if you use only once a day. If you have room for one splurge in your routine, this should be it.
tldr: @embryolisse’s lait-crème concentré leaves my cheeks feeling like a baby’s bum ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for simplicity and effectiveness.
the lait creme smells so light and nice, like a mix between a sweet baby (?lol) and milk. I’ve been using it day and night and it’s shown my skin nothing but love. moisturizing, non-greasy, and layers perfectly under my sunscreen + Iope cushion compact without pilling or any oiliness later in the day. acts almost like both a moisturizer and primer!
🌷Thiccc, but glides on so light! And layerable! I pat on 2-3 layers at night and one in the morning.
🌷Texture is almost like a cold cream, but melts much lighter once on my face.
🌷Tube is easy to use but don’t bend it!!! Discovered a hole as I was typing this and looking at the tube because I rolled it like I do to my toothpaste.. oh noo.
🌷No irritation, not once since using this
🌷No dryness at any point during the day
🌷Skin looks and feels happy!
🌷Moisture barrier and overall skin health overall feel pretty restored and I’m super happy that this adds a simple, but effective product to my routine.
🌸 shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera, soy proteins
Yes! $28 @dermstore (😞 way cheaper in Europe)
New (to me) mask tonight from #makeprem Blending me. Nourishing oil mask.
🍂 I'm a little nervous, cause that's a whole lot of oil for my acne-prone skin, but my jaw area has been a bit dry so it needs the hydration
🍂 Mask claims to instantly renew and protect skin
🍂 Slightly perfume scent upon opening, but I can't smell it once it's on my face
🍂 Unfolded easily, no tears
🍂 Fits my face pretty well - a little on the narrow side but not terrible
🍂 Adherence is good, no slipping detected
🍂 Says to leave on for 10-20 minutes, I left it on for 30 and massaged the extra essence in
🍂 This is a pretty heavy product; unless you have very dry skin, I do not know if I'd recommend it. It probably works great for winter as well, but it felt very weighty on my skin. 🍂 $5/mask at Target
🍂 Verdict: I don't pay $5 for a mask, generally speaking, so unless it heals all my skin congestion and brings me coffee in bed, I likely won't repurchase unless it's on sale and my skin is doing some crazy flaking
You know when someone finds out you're into skincare, so they give you stuff, even though they themselves know nothing about skincare... yeah, that's how this happened. Like they say, though, it's the thought that counts, right?I honestly felt like I was crossing party lines or something by even having this, but today is POMEGRANATE day in the #autumnmasking challenge from @visceralstardust and @smscott, so I had a chance to use it up finally, and to not fall back on my already featured Innisfree mask. So, here it is folks, the NEVER talked about #garnier#sheetmask , this one with pomegranate! I've never really looked at these, so I'm not sure about the other flavors out there. I was surprised to see this had a blue backing on it. It's not really thin enough material to need it, in my opinion, but whateva. I removed that before putting the mask on. The sheet itself is soft, HUGE, as you can see by how much I've folded the sides under, and pretty soaked in essence. The smell is artificially fruity, but not super strong. I've had the mask on for a half hour now and it's just starting to dry out around my mouth and chin, so decent enough wear time. I have a dog to go take care of, so it all works out. Is it a bad mask? No, amazingly enough, considering how bad their bb cream was when I tried it. Would I buy this? At $2.49, no freaking way. I'm spoiled by my Korean and Taiwanese masks. I can't go back. But, in a pinch, in the middle of nowhere, this would do. Also, these are made in China, so they totally count as #asianbeauty . #sheetmaskselfie#kbeautybandwagon#skincare#getsheetfaced#middaymasking
tldr: @peach_slices “clarify” mask soothes, calms and de-puffs irritated/broken out skin gently & extremely effectively ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️overall!
Slapped this baby on because I popped a pimple right before starting my day in Paris and IT WORKED. Saved me from walking around with a swollen mountain on my cheekbone. I love all the @peach_slices masks I’ve tried and have to give props to @aliciayoon212 (my professional inspiration ✨) and their development team for doing so well with quality, ingredients and affordability. This mask not only made my skin feel clean and calm, but also felt like it cleansed all my sins away. Wish I had another to slap on after last night hah
🌸 so much ESSENCE ala all @peach_slices masks
🌸 #dreamysmells member - peppermint opens your sinuses and cools your skin
🌸 I’m usually sensitive to peppermint oil but this mask was fine on me
🌸 FIT! @peach_slices has some of the best fitting masks I’ve ever tried. Should work for all bone structures
🌸 Noticeable soothing effect - all redness was gone after wearing this mask for 20 minutes. 🌸 Despite being exhausted, my skin looked bright and well-rested. 🌸 Matte, but glowing skin.
🌸ROSE EXTRACT, CITRUS EXTRACT, FIG EXTRACT, PEPPERMINT OIL
Yes! Easy to stock up on at $2.50 per pack at most CVS stores 🙈✨
It’s a three mask situation. Clearing mud for my monster zit I’ve named Vesuvius, Vitamin C as a treatment mask (generously applied down my neck too) and a brightening sheet mask over the top. This is my apology to my skin for passing out last night without a shred of skincare because 🥂🍸🍹🍻🍻🍻🍹 in that order 💁🙊
Sheet mask provided by @piibusocial, use bellawonder10 to save when you shop their monthly mask sets! ✨💋
Aren’t these coleus gorgeous? Their stems are indigo and cutting their leafy curls left the scissors purple. I love these, and geranium, so much. Simple and beautiful. 🌸
For #maskmadness Day 24: Autumnal, I chose #rosee Sip Jangseang Oriental Herb Essence Mask - the packaging just reminded me of turning fall foliage
🍁 Found for $2 at my local Asian grocery
🍂 Essence squirted out upon opening, so very liquid product
🍁 Definite herbal "hanbang" scent, but not overpowering to me
🍂 Fit is weird; too thin for my face and a lot of extra fabric around the jaw though it was long enough
🍁 Adherence is pretty good, considering I was walking around doing things like laundry - slipped a little by creasing at the eyebrows
🍂 I wore it for 30 minutes and the inside was still a bit damp
🍁 Product sank in pretty well
🍂 Tacky residue still some 10 minutes later
🍁 Skin feels plump and hydrated - will have to get back to you about the instant anti-aging effects and nourishment
🍂 Verdict: Decent mask, would use again
I'm doing yesterday's#maskmadness today since I didn't have time to mask then and I don't have a suitable one for today's category! So Fruity/Berry it is, with #mokshadear Berry: Rose Hip, Tomato, Chamomile
🍓 This was a freebie from my @w2beauty_official haul
🍓 Mask claims to make skin silly and glowing
🍓 Upon opening, mask has a faint berry smell, but not fake or candylike
🍓 Essence is a cream, so no drippage
🍓 Fit is okay - really big mouth opening so I kept moving it closer to my lips (the skin around there is very dry) but it kept sliding away
🍓 Left mask on for 40 minutes, still some dampness when I took it off
🍓 Massaged remaining product into my face and it definitely feels different than what I'm used to - "silky" maybe but almost bordering on greasy. Not sure how I feel about it
🍓 Roughly $2.50 each, though @altheakorea has them for $1 each!
🍓 Verdict: would purchase, I think. My skin definitely feels smoother, I'm just wondering if the cream was too heavy for my oily zones - I suppose I'll find out tomorrow!
#maskmadness Day 18: Eyes is the #milatte Fashiony Black Mask that I received in my last Bomi Box (it came a couple weeks after the box)!
🐼 Adorable. Did I mention adorable?
🐼 Ingredients include snail mucin and hyaluronic acid, among other things like aloe and pearl extract to diminish wrinkles and dark circles
🐼 Light scent on opening but nothing too overpowering
🐼 Easy to unfold and apply (and instructions in English!)
🐼 Adherence and fit were both great - stayed on even though I was looking down a lot
🐼 Left it on for 20 minutes and there was still essence left on the mask
🐼 Skin felt moisturized, but I did not notice any change in wrinkles or dark circles (not that I expected an immediate result)
🐼 Plenty of essence left in the package to use on the rest of my face
🐼 No weird residue or sticky feeling that I noticed 🐼 Verdict: Would purchase. It's adorable and felt nice, and it's 10 for $6.36 at #roseroseshop#abcommunity#koreanskincare#kbeauty#kbeautyaddict#koreanbeauty#sheetmask#getsheetfaced#pamperyourself#skincare#skincareaddict#10stepkoreanskincare#eyemask#adorablepackaging#snails

#maskmadness Day 12: Bug's Life entry is #rosee Sip Jangseang One-Day Solution Gold Cocoon Sericin Mask
🐛 The extract is from a silkworm, known for high protein content
🐛 The mask claims to help soften and firm skin; it is Anti-Wrinkle+Whitening+Skin Relaxing/Moisturizing
🐛 Fragrance upon opening is very perfume-like and powerful, but fortunately that dissipated quickly
🐛 Essence is...soapy? For lack of a better term. Not drippy though
🐛 Fabric is thicker than I've used before which made fit a little weird around the curves of my face - it is made of "Hanji" which is a handmade Korean paper made from mulberry trees
🐛 Adherence was also not as great because of the thick fabric not conforming. Also the part between my nose and upper lip kept drooping so my lips got plenty of product on them. No points for taste
🐛 I left the mask on for 40 minutes and the side touching skin was pretty dry
🐛 The product sank in pretty well, but it left a very sticky residue even some 45 minutes later
🐛 Verdict: 🤷🏻♀️ Eh. It did hydrate my skin, but I have other masks that do the same, but are cheaper and leave no residue
#maskmadness Day 11: Cheap. This is #etudehouse Blueberry Air Therapy Mask, designed to firm skin and make it radiant
🍒 No blueberry emoji, so cherries it is
🍒These are about $0.89 on TesterKorea, so not the cheapest I've used (hi dermal), but definitely affordable. They are about $1.50-2.50 on US-based sites
🍒 No fragrance upon opening or applying
🍒 The mask is so thin, I had a hard time getting to unstick from itself
🍒 Fit is pretty good, it's just the tip of my nose poking out
🍒 Adherence is fine, though it slips a bit at the edges
🍒 Mask is quite saturated with a very drippy essence (glad I always open these over the sink) and a lot of product in the package
🍒 Wore for 30 minutes and it still had some moisture left
🍒 Took a few more minutes for the product to sink in to my face and left no residue at all
🍒 Skin definitely feels hydrated, but as to radiant? Hard to say.
🍒 Good for the price and I'd probably repurchase for the Korean site price if I don't mind waiting to receive them
#maskmadness Day 8: Red is dermal Red Ginseng!
🎋 Fragrance is definitely different from all the other dermal masks I've used! I assume it's the ginseng extract - I don't think I've ever smelled ginseng before. Not unpleasant at all, I like the herbal-ness of it
🎋 This mask feels a bit shorter between the forehead and mouth than the other ones, with a lot of extra fabric at the bottom
🎋 Ginseng extract is used for anti-aging properties, helping to tone and brighten skin because of all the phytonutrients (per Wikipedia)
🎋 Wore for 30 minutes, still damp
🎋 Skin feels hydrated; I don't really notice much of a difference in brightening. But would buy again for the smell!
Today's mask was 8 quarters! & some tax -_- but w.e lol This mask is supposed to "clear & purify" idk why I always feel confident about a mask when I see the directions in Korean lol. Then after I'm done i just tap tap tap it all into the skin😏😏
tldr: @paparecipe_official's bombee rose gold honey mask pack is the dreamiest smelling sheet mask I know; nourishes, plumps and revives tired, had-too-many-margaritas-last-night skin 🙈 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️overall!
I always forget to post about sheet masks because the packaging is always crumpled due to the obligatory excess serum squeeze - is this an ab-only phenom? 😄 Anyways, a lot of y'all already know about the original honey mask pack and I wanted to shout out its just as effective, slightly more special feeling (swipe for the close up) sister with rose extract.
🌸 Amount of essence is perfect - enough for 40 minutes of wear.
🌸 #dreamysmells club for sure! Like wearing honey and love on your face.
🌸 Calming effects felt immediately.
🌸 Rich, but not overly-sticky texture.
🌸 The gold netting on the mask made me feel bougie in a good way.
🌸 Noticeable brightening effect
🌸 My sallow, sleep-deprived skin felt + looked like it had been injected with a few extra hours of sleep
🌸 Essence was a good, thick consistency - the perfect medium between watery and too goopy
🌸 Skin feels + looks plumped and way refreshed
🌸ROSE EXTRACT, 24K GOLD (on the sheet..), HONEY, PROPOLIS, ROYAL JELLY
YES. ~$20 for a 5 pack at various online retailers.... and coming soon to another major one 😉.
