From what I have learned by researching more about these particular sheetmasks is that these are actually 7 day sheet mask( a specific mask is assigned for each week day
Since I placed 3 out of 7 masks in a giveaway I was left with 4 out if which I used two
After cleansing and cleaning skin texture, take out a sheet and apply evenly
 to the whole face.
In 15-20 minutes, remove the sheet and pat on to the skin the remains for it to be absorbed.
Any remaining ingredients can be also applied to other body areas.
The 3 steps include:
STEP1 Facial Foaming & Soft Peeling
This foam cleanser is really good, a little goes a long way. This has a nice (olay lotion like) scent and foams up a lot
This is a scentless sheet mask. The sheet feels  soft and comfortable. The cut out for the nose, mouth and eyes are in good proportion.    coming to the essence it's  slightly viscous than water and absorbs easily into the skin without leaving a tacky finish
STEP3 Anti-Aging Night Cream
The cream has a has cream to lotion consistency. It spreads easily and absorbs within a few minutes .
smooth soft skin next day, this reduced the dry patches on my face and helped my makeup go on easily the next morning.

1. Avoid using on blemishes, pimples, irritated or sunburned skin.
2. Stop using and ask a doctor if skin becomes red, swollen, itchy during and after use.
3. Keep out of eyes. If eye contact, rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
4. Avoid using on skin which is sensitive to bandage or tapes.
5. Avoid storing under direct sunlight or high&low temperature. Keep away from the children. For preventing dryness, use mask at once after opening pouch.

SOC 3D Beauty Serum Face mask

December 17, 2017 0
Earlier this month I shared a post on my instagram on how much I enjoyed using this mask
So finally here it is my thoughts on these fun sheet masks

One thing which confuses me about these masks is the Japanese written on the packaging, was it because they were originally designed for Japanese market? Or were these masks formulated in Japan and later sold in Korea? If you know the reason please let me know
I like this serum vial shaped packaging looks vibrant and cute. Though the instructions and   ingredients list is stated in Japanese you can know more by clicking at the link here
There are about 6 variants in total in the range
Rice wine - Nourishes , Firmness
EGF - Bouncy skin, Revitalising, Smoothing
Placenta -  Brightening, Smoothing
- Moisturizing
Synake  - Firming , Smoothing
Snail - Anti Ageing
The instructions state to use this after refrigeration in summer and to place it in warm water for 3 minutes in winters
General over view:
These sheetmasks have close to none scent. The sheet is made out of cotton so its thick and soaks up the serum pretty well. The most interesting part has to be the 3D design  these masks are stitched in middle so the fit is perfect . I love how it fit my face so well ( its like an exclusive glove for face
The serum is water like and thin so it absorbs really easily into the skin, since the weather is cold the serum in EGF mask turned into gel but after a few minutes of rubbing it transformed into water again.
The moisture one gets from these masks is amazing. The hydrate the skin but don't leave any sticky / tacky residue behind which is great as I personally prefer masks which give matte finish to the skin. You don't get 100% brightening / lightening effect from these but the effect is there.
I have worn the SOC 3D Beauty Serum Face mask in EGF and Rice wine and really enjoy how it felt on my skin. I have oily skin so I try to avoid sheet mask which have viscous serum but this felt so comfortable on the skin. The watery serum didn't take much time to sink in and made my skin feel so and hydrated. Would recommend these masks for sure

October 01, 2017 1
Today I am going to review the contents of my skin18 reviewer program package. I choose mediheal masks for this level as I previously had a really nice experience with mediheal masks and its one of the brands I can definitely trust

Essential masks are one of the popular mediheal masks released by mediheal they were recently upgraded to a better formula
Initially I though that all of these sheet masks would give similar results but boy I was wrong each of these masks have a different type of serum  I will start with the MEDIHEAL PLACENTA RE-VITAL ESSENTIAL MASK"

My first ever encounter with placenta was  during my gynaecology ward rotation and I was seriously grossed out/amazed by it at the same time. But I never thought that one day I will using a mask on my face which contains placenta extracts ๐Ÿ˜ณ As much as I was hesitant to try out "MEDIHEAL PLACENTA RE-VITAL ESSENTIAL MASK" i decided to man up ๐Ÿ˜  and slap it on my face. This surprising smells good. As this is a cellulose  sheet mask with silky touch this has a thick sheet. The size of sheet is medium so the fit might be a problem for some people. I had to manoeuvre the sheet a bit so that it fit my face shape and tucked the excess part under my chin. I kind of look like voldemort wearing this mask but I bet you all might have got used to my face by now ๐Ÿ˜…. Anyways the serum of this sheet mask is slightly viscous and has glycerine like texture so it does not absorb into the skin right away especially if you have oily skin like I do but a little bit of patting can make a difference. When I took off the mask after 30 mins my face felt a little bit tacky and had a layer of unabsorbed serum which gave glowy look to my face. As the weather has become hot and warm again one would like it more if the mask is chilled before application. Overall this isn't a bad sheet mask but i think this is kind of mask that is better enjoyed by  folks who gave dry skin as this is very hydrating ๐Ÿ‘  4/5


I had really high hopes for this one as tea tree  is a really promising ingredient for acne prone and oily skin and I am happy to tell you guys that my experience with this was good. It has a pleasant scent and has a thin serum which absorbs into the skin without leaving that tacky feel . My skin felt soft and all the redness was reduced. This mask is great if you have oily skin  I love how mote and more brands are designing sheet masks that target acne prone

and oily skin type


Drenched in serum this mask was tried out by my mother. The fit was good for her face ) there wasn't much extra part to tuck in the mask-). For her dry skin this mask was perfect. The serum was thick and left a slightly tacky film which locked in all the moisture. My Mom likes to wear sheet masks till the edges of the sheet began to dry up. And for her this dried up after 50 mins. Pretty good eh !!


Now all the Variants  that I tried out from this range didn't provide the brightening . Something which is a hall mark of Asian skincare so when I picked this one up I was excited as I love products which brighten and whiten but alas this failed to brightening the complexion Tha glow was there no doubt but the brightening part was missing and the serum was tacky so I washed my face because I didn't like the feel of leftover serum on my face. This is good mask in terms of moisture but if you are picking this up for brightening then you are going to be disappointed ๐Ÿ˜ž

One of the fancy ingredient mask. I have seen  skincare products which contain gold extracts but having platinum as an ingredient was quite a surprise for me. I didn't know what to expect from this mask so I just applied it onto the face and watched tv while I waited fir the essence to soak in .one thing I noticed was that unlike the other variants this mask was not upgraded ? I wonder why?
Anyways I didn't notice any special difference in my skin texture except for the fact that it looked plump ( choc choc skin) .
All and about these masks are good for providing moisture and hydration . The formula is very skin friendly. the essence does not itch or burn. Even though some of these masks leave a tacky residue onto the face . It does not cause breakouts . These are available for purchase at website

[Review] Mediheal dress code mask ( blue, black and violet)

July 07, 2017 1
Today I will be review some really cute mask that were sent to my by for review purpose . I choose these masks entirely because of the cool masquerade design hehe lets see if they are only visually attractive or worth the money too?

Compared to the sheet masks I have tried out in the past the sheets of these masks is way more thicker. In my mind I thought these would be hydrogel mask but to my surprise these turned out as regular cotton sheet masks. Whats new about these is that they have a fancy design printed on them so it makes the sheetmasking even more fun specially when you have a slumber party with your friends

Since i got three  masks for the review purpose I shared these with my mother and sister

Mediheal dress code mask  Black (whitening)

When I tore open the mask I was met with this nice scent which I liked a lot. Seriously I enjoyed scented makeup and skincare products as long as they have fruity or floral scent . The mask size was a bit large for my face so I tucked the ends down my chin . This particular mask tingled slightly initially but then the tingling sensation was gone
 I left if on my face for 30mins (10 mins more than the recommended time). The serum in this is clear and liquidy but it did not absorb as fast as the previous masks I have tried . I rubbed the spare essence onto my arms and neck so that none of the serum foes to waste.
What I noticed was that my face was instantly bright. But sadly the effect didn't last long( It was gone by next morning).

Mediheal dress code mask  Violet

For my sister the serum was too much for her taste. As the mask was large for her face some of the serum got onto her hair ๐Ÿ˜Š. But I helped her fix the situating by squeezing some of the serum back into the mask sister particularly liked the design on the mask. She spent a lot of time taking selfies. According to her the mask was nice and hydrating. This variant didn't tingled her skin thankful nor did it cause acne on her face. This also brightened her face. Her skin looked fair than normal after using this mask

Mediheal dress code mask Blue (aqua care)

Onto the third mask. My mother by now is a fan of sheetmasks so she was quite eager
 to try this one out by mediheal. This is labeled as aqua care clearly target for skin which needs hydration. My mother has dry skin so she absolutely loved the hydration the mask provided. She did felt that the thick fabric of the sheet mask was a little uncomfortable but other than that no complains. The scent if the mask was good too and my mother got that chok chok skin.
Out of all the three make I was sent the black dress code mask had these red faux jewel like sparkly things attached to them which made it even more fancy
I think these masks are for the price plus they are so much fun to use.I imagined myself at a mysterious masquerade ball . Lol me and my day dreams . This is my first time trying out products by mediheal and I really liked the quality of this brand. I will surely purchase more masks from this skincare brand in future

Welcos Jeju Natural Aloe and Canola honey mask review

June 10, 2017 0
I received these masks on my mail a few days back and after trying them out I am posting my verdict. I decided to share one mask with my sister so she choose the aloe one while I went for the canola honey.
For reference my sister and I both have oily skin

Unlike most of the masks I have tried out in the past. The comes in a relatively small packaging. The packing is bright and cheerful
These masks contain 20ml of product which is less compared to other mask but that's ok as less serum means less mess. These make are not  scented. The scent is mild and refreshing. The fit of the mask is good not too big nor too small. These is also flap to cover the nose area

The Canola honey has nice scent the serum is not sticky . It absorbs easily into the skin. One thing which I notices using this was it sting slightly more like an itch . Which I weird because I haven't Experienced. anything  like this sort ever in my past. I let this mask sit on my face for 20 mins and then patted the left over serum onto my face. This made my skin soft and hydrated. The effect lasted for a couple of hours

As for the aloe. My sister enjoyed this a was her first Time trying out a sheet mask. She has a bit of redness and pimples going on her cheeks and chin so this mask did calmed her skin down and felt soothing. According to her, she noticed that there was less redness and her skin felt moisturized. Unlike the canola honey mask she didn't Experience itching
I thinks these masks are good for the value ser long-lasting results one must use them continuously for weeks to see results
These masks are available at skin18 fir purchase

Beauty Friends II essence mask sheet pack Royal Jelly

May 11, 2017 1
I am back with  a sheet mask review . I was sent this mask in exchange for an honest review so after using this mask here is what I think of it.

I got measles a few weeks back and ever since that incident my skin has numerous scars, and is now dry, patchy and flaky. So to tame the dryness I often slather on a lot of moisturizer on my face to keep it hydrated and make my makeup look smooth and flawless
The chief ingredient of Beauty Friends II mask is royal jelly
Now Royal jelly has a  lot of medicinal and skin benefiting properties. It heals the skin, hydrates and moisturizes it. It even fights tumours. Cool right !!!
Quantity: 23 g of serum

This mask is packed in a very vibrant packing. It's travel friendly and secure to keep the mask safe. The instructions written at the back are unfortunately written in Korean but there is an illustrated tutorial/guide for directions.
Upon opening the mask I was greeted with mild sweet scent. Now I don't mind scented products as long as they don't smell if they don't have the weird metallic scent. So this smell very nice to me.  I pulled out the mask which thankfully had adequate serum but was not dripping. And unfolded it. Them I placed it on my clean, washed face( I cleansed my face before applying the sheet mask so that the serum of the mask absorbed better) unlike the Foodaholic 3D mask, this fit my face shape quite nicely. The material of the sheet mask was soft and non scratchy. I leaned back on the couch with the mask on and after 30 minutes I removed it. I patted my face amd neck with remaining serum.

Here is what I noticed my face looked plump. The scars looked less flaky. My skin felt hydrated and smooth. More importantly my makeup went on so easily on my face. I didn't had to spent extra time trying to blend the foundation and make it look even . The effect of the sheet mask lasted for one day only unfortunately because the next day my skin was back to it horrible self again. But I guess this has something to do with post measles skin. This mask is pretty good and is the price is very budget friendly. currently has this mask and a lot of other sheet masks on sale right now. So girls go and grab them before the stock runs out .
