One of the disappointing masks i have tried out in a while are these Secret A skin guardian sheet masks . Everything about these masks other than ampoule is disappointing. Don't get me wrong these masks provide good hydration and make the skin moisturizer but I didn't notice the brightening effect 😔




I started out with the Vita whitening 3 step total face mask .




Step 1: is an O2 bubble cleanser now as the name suggests it a bubble cleanser I hoped that this would lather up nicely with lot of bubbles but unfortunately it didn't. No lather no bubbles . I did clean my face and remove sebum but the bubble part was missing one of the things i noticed was that this didn't had any scent at all which is quite new for Korean skincare.


Step 2 : Ampoule. This was Like water so so light and just absorbs into the skin within seconds . I would definitely buy the full size version of this ampoule . The product in the foil was good enough to be used twice


Step 3: Sheet mask.
This was generously soaked in serum so when I took it out there was some serum left in the packet.I placed the mask on my face and tried to wait for the serum to work its magic but then I noticed that the serum felt heavy and very suffocating on my skin. I began to feel a little itchy on the sides of my face and it felt so uncomfortable that I had to remove the mask after 15 minutes. My skin didn't look bright or white. It just looked irritated
I washes my face twice with cold water to calm it down


Wrinkle 3 step total facial mask


I gave this one to my mom to try since this is targeted for mature skin. She had the same review on the cleanser and the lack of bubbles. She liked the ampoule though . For her the amount was enough to apply on her face and her neck. The sheet mask thankful didn't gave her any bad reaction.  She applied it to her face for 15 minutes (precautionary measure) . She said it made her skin hydrated but not much brightening was noticed. The serum on this was not heavy it was light and absorbed into the skin after a couple of pats


Aqua 3 step total face mask




I tried out this mask and found it a bit better than the brightening version. The serum on this felt exactly like the ampoule it absorbed into the skin though there was a slightly tacky residue left on the skin after removal of mask. My skin felt soft and hydrated I didn't notice much brightening but the chok chok skin felt nice. The ampolue was nice it had adequate product to be used twice m the cleanser didn't lather up but it left my skin squeaky clean

Collagen 3 step total face mask





you should know by now that none of the 4 variants masks have a cleanser that bubbles up . This mask is still in my collection waiting to be used up so I might try this one when I am free 😊





All in one I think these masks are a miss for me as I prefer masks which brighten skin


Thankyou skin18 for sending me these masks to try

Skin18.com sent me three products by luke

Luke Essence Mask hyaluron


Firstly is the hyaluronic face mask.this mask contains hyaluronic acid which has moisturizing properties. Due to the dry cold my oily skin is acting pretty weird these days. The area around my nose and cheek feels dry and sore at times. This mask nursed my skin pretty good. It replenished the moisture and made my skin soft like a baby.  This mask fit my face shape nicely and contained very generous amount of serum. I feared it might drip lol. As always I enjoyed wearing this mask and the great thing is that the moisturizing effect lasted for two days 👍






Luke Nose Patch mugwort



I have already tried this nose strip by luke and in my opinion about this pore strip is same. Its great for the price and does a fantastic job of pulling out all the black heads and gunk from the pores. For proof check out the picture below






  Luke Nose Patch mugwort


Since its winters I didn't applied this eye patch cold like I previously did. But it did felt cool and tingly none the less. I didn't notice any major difference in my wrinkles but I did notice that this eye patch made my eyes look less tired and more bright and refreshed then before




and this concludes my review of all the products i have been sent by skin18.com. skin18.com currently has some awesome deals running on their website so do check them out

Purederm yogurt grape pack

(Wash off type massage pack)

Quantity:10ml



The only variety  of wash off masks I have ever used are  freemans mud mask, so using this moisturizing wash off mask was new for me

 this is an opaque white mask which has a synthetic grape scent with miniature granules for exfoliation. The granules are very little in number and very fine.
the mask has a cream like texture which absorbs within a minute into the skin as soon as its massaged on to the face




In my opinion this sachet contains enough  product which can be used twice,
I applied a dime size of this mask to my face in gentle circular motions and then left it on my face for 20 mins( I know the instructions say to leave it for 5-10 mins)



This washed off quite easily. It didn't lather or foam when washing. After patting my skin dry I noticed that it was soft and moisturized and my complexion was slightly lighter
For the price this mask is good skincare product

Mirum fresh fruit green tea sheet mask

 



I love the scent of green tea , so I was very excited to try this out
I applied this mask early in the morning while sipping my morning tea. The experience altogether was so refreshing . This smells exactly like free tea.  Green tea has the quality of hydrating lightening and detoxifying skin so this mask is perfect for all kind of skin types

After washing my face with a cleanser I applied this sheet mask to my face and left it on for 30 mins. I wanted my skin to absorb all the goodness this mask was offering hehe 😊



The sheet mask has a soft texture and is very gentle on the skin I was a bit large for my face but that's not too problematic. On removal I massaged the left over product on my face and neck
My skin felt soft and supple for two days which is so good since the weather is getting cold lately and my skin is acting quite weird



I have oily skin so creams and lotions using clog up my pores and make my skin break out but I am pleased to report that I didn't experience any breakouts after using this mask
I am so much interested to try out other variants from this line of sheet masks


That's all for now review of other products coming up soon

Hello



I am back again reviewing the contents of my second reviewers package sent to me by skin18.com
Before I begin I want to thank skin18.com for send me these. Trust me, my mother and I had so much fun trying out these masks  this weekend


Innoface modelling cup pack in peppermint


Quanity : 15g
 
 I have never tried a modelling cup facemask but I am familiar with peel off mask,
This mask is a diy project kind of thing in which you are supposed to make your own mask by mixing the powder provided with water in a fixed ratio 0f 2:1. this mask converts into a chewy rubbery like texture which peels off easily




I mixed a little amount of water with powder in a saucer and applied it to my cheek only
The first thing I noticed was the smell of peppermint , ah so refreshing




This mask gives a cool tingling sensation which feels so good
I waited a few minutes for the mask to dry and then peeled it off
unlike the freeman peel off mask this didnt peel of tiny hair from my face so whole procedure was pain free



My skin felt soft after the whole procedure. didnt experience any irritation on the skin
Personally I feel that this mask has powder enough to be used two times


Cracare 3 step anti aging collagen lifting mask 




I gave this to my mother to try out since its more appropriate for her skin and age . This is a three step skin mask its has an anti aging ampoule , a sheet mask and  anti aging night cream



Firstly let me just say that how amazing and sweet does this mask smells, its part floral part herbs

Step1: Anti aging ampoule contained enough product to cover the face complete. The ampoule absorbed instantaneously, its very light in weight and did not leave a greesy film on the skin
My mother really liked the way it made her dry skin so soft and smooth




Step2: Is a sheet mask this had a lot of product in it which was dripping so my mother applied the excess product to her neck




She left the mask on her face for 30 mins and them removed the mask and gave her face a mini massage
She really like how hydrated and supple her skin was after using the mask


Step3: Anti aging night cream
My mother applied to her face before going to bed and was happy to notice that this cream completely absorbed into her skin so didn't had to worry about the cream transferring on to her pillow case



My mother woke up with very soft and bright looking skin, this mask has amazing scent part floral part herbal the scent is really soothing so altogether it was a very luxurious experience for my mother


i am truly impressed by these two masks and plan to stock up the cracare masks for my mother on this Christmas / new year sale

korean skin care is truly amazing

Last month I did a post on the skin products I received from skin 18.com reviews package, now I am finally doing a detailed review on each product



Dr luke mugwort nose strip




Price:

My thoughts:
Firstly forgive me for posting a  scary close up of my face I just wanted to demonstrate how it looked when it was on, this nose trip has a strong cologne like smell to it , which was a bit over powering in the beginning but became bearable after few minutes. Just follow the directions written at the back, place the pale sea green nose strip on your wet nose wait for it to dry for 20-30 minutes and peel



For me got a lot of gunky stuff from my pores, also the tiny hair that I have on my nose, this pore strip adheres to the nose quite hard so the pore cleaning action is pretty good in fact  better than the locally manufacture pore strips I have used , got a lot of my black heads and white heads
Thumbs up for this product quite impressed

 luke dark  eye patch  for puffiness




Price:


Curved crescent/teardrop shaped these  are so good to refresh  the area under  the eyes, give a cool tingling affect to the under eye area and stick well too, I refrigerated these before use to give an extra refreshing effect to my  sleep deprived eyes and trust me I felt so good




One of the fun  nose strips I have ever used, felt like a salon session at home, packet contains three nose strips designed to cleanse your pores, clear out the sebum and dirt and then close the pores
My nose felt so smooth and clean after using this nose strip, convinced to purchase this nose strip by holika holika


Four season  Collagen lifting  wrinkle care intensive mask:


Sheet masks are quite a big skin care product in Korea so this was a very interesting and exciting experience for me
The were a bit large for my face but  It didn’t make their usage any trouble some,  I left the mask on my face for a good 30 mins and on removal my skin felt so soft, hydrated and glowing . I was really amazed by the result i dont have wrinkles but this did hydrate my skin

Foodaholic Orange natural essence mask



how doesnt love citrus-y tangy scents i do!!

these mask smells so good
orange is known for its skin lightening and many beauty related beneficial properties
this brightened my skin i enjoyed using this mask the most


so thats it for the review

hope you enjoyed reading it
