Inoface Modeling Cup Pack Collagen

I received this product from skin18.com for review purposes! So I kept the best for last! Actually I have never used a modeling mask before and since I was skeptical as to how well it would perform, I saved it for my last post on these skin18 kbeauties.
The packaging is very smart, attractive and colorful. It is a one – time use mask pack. I received the collagen version to use. Unfortunately this product did not have any instructions in English. But it is easy to Google how to use it or better just go to skin18.com for detailed instructions. (which is what I did).
This product claims provides moisture, strengthens skin and tightens pores. It also claims it is good for all types of skin especially sensitive.
When I opened the pack, which was nicely sealed by the way, I saw what looked like fine, white baby powder to me. It even felt like powder though it had no smell. The pack also comes conveniently with a small spatula to use.

The instructions claims to add water to the powder. But how to add the correct amount of water? Simple! Just use the cap of the pack to add two caps of water to the powder and mix with the spatula. Mix well till all the blobs disappear and it becomes a smooth white paste.
Next I used the spatula to apply this goopy mixture to my face and it kind of stuck to my skin. It was easy to apply. Most face masks that I have used ( which are mostly clay based), sometimes drips and makes the whole process messy. There would be spots of mask all over on my hands , neck, dress and the sink. But this was so easy and mess – free to use and apply. Since this mask just clung to my skin upon application, it did not drip nor was there any mess after application.

Here am I looking like a horrible ghoul!Lol!

The texture of the mask was very toothpaste like if you know what I mean. I can’t exactly describe it but I liked it a lot better than the other wash off masks that I have tried.The instructions state that after application, wait for 15 – 20 minutes and then slowly peel away the mask. For me , I did not even have to wait that long. The mask soon started to thicken and harden. And already parts of it was peeling away all by itself. It was easy to peel and remove the mask. There were some bits and pieces sticking to my face but it was easily removable with water.

Here is a look at my (horror) model mask.
Final Thoughts 

This is the first time I have used a modeling mask and I have to say I am very impressed.  My skin feels soft, smooth and hydrated. My pores feel tight. I also did not experience any irritation or burning sensation while using this product.  The packaging is also a bonus.  It’s small compact size makes it travel friendly and one does not need to carry any additional tools required for this mask as it already comes with a spatula inside and the package is also shaped like a bowl. Plus it’s easy and mess – free application makes it a must-have while traveling. Overall, I like this product very much and will purchase it soon. Thank you so much skin18.com for supplying me with this mask! I enjoyed it very much. #skin18 #skin18review #skin18challenge

Luke Green Tea Essence Mask 

I received this product from skin18.com for review purposes. The packaging is very cute and  attractive and comes in an eye catching green color. The pack also contains instructions in English on the back.

This mask contains green tea essence which focuses on healing wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and firms skin. Green tea contains antioxidants which fights premature aging by eliminating free radicals and increasing the production of  new skin cells.

This mask smells amazing. It smells like a combination of something floral and a little bit like green tea. The mask itself is thick and firm and is loaded with lots of essence. It was not flimsy like some masks where you have to be extremely careful or the mask will tear. There was a decent bit of essence left in the pack too. I wore this mask for more than 30 minutes actually. After application,  my skin felt smooth , soft and bright.
FINAL THOUGHTS 

This is a good decent mask. I especially enjoyed the unique scent it had to offer. My skin also looked great after removing the mask.  It felt soft , smooth and well hydrated. as this mask focuses mostly on anti-aging and healing loose skin.

LUKE VITAMIN HYDROGEL EYE PATCH 

I received this product from skin18.com for review purposes. This is an eye mask. The packaging looks neat and clean. It is a small package as it contains only 2 pads which are good for one treatment. And again this is good for travel. There are also instructions in English on the back.

When I opened the pack, I noticed a faint orange scent, as I love oranges I did not mind this at all. And anyway the smell disappeared after sometime. As you can see the eye pads are pre-soaked with the treatment of moisture and Vitamin A, C, B5 & B3. These eye patches are loaded with the essential vitamins and moisture to prevent dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. They also help to brighten tired looking eyes.

One side of the eye patches are dry while the other side is sticking to a plastic liner. The other side is cool, damp and sticky to the touch once it is peeled off the plastic. The instructions claims that it is better to apply an eye cream or essence before putting these eye pads on but it is only optional. 

Once I have applied the eye pads to my eyes, they feel very cool , moist and refreshing. Just exactly what I need after along tiring day. These patches are easy to apply and remove. After 30 minutes I removed them to discover bright , moisturized and relaxed looking eyes. Again the instructions claims that you can finish this treatment off with an eye serum or a cream now which is optional.
Final Thoughts 

I loved this whole eye treatment experience. I actually liked this treatment so much that after 30 minutes I did not want to remove the eye patches at all as I was enjoying the cooling sensation a lot on my tired eyes. This is so perfect for travel, one can easily wear this in flight. My eyes looked bright, relaxed and hydrated after using this. Overall a great eye mask and very inexpensive too. Thank you Skin18 for supplying me with this eye mask! #skin18 #skin18review #skin18challenge

CRACARE ANTI-AGING SNAIL REPAIRING MASK 

I received this mask from skin18.com for review purposes. This is a 3 – step essence mask focused mainly on Anti-aging, skin lightening and firming benefits. This is the first time I am using a 3 step Mask so I was really excited to try it. I never buy any 3 step masks mainly because I have lots of ampoules, Essences and night creams at home that I want to finish. 

Anyway onto the mask now, the packaging looks beautiful and attractive. I have always been attracted to gold colored packages. And on the back we have clear instructions in English too. This mask contains snail secretion which is highly effective in skin lightening and firming by deeply moisturizing the skin. 

The first step consists of applying the Anti-aging active ampoule after cleansing. The instructions state to apply the ampoule focusing on the area around the eyes and lips.  However I had so much of ampoule that I used them on my face and neck and I still had some left over which I applied on my feet. The ampoule had a light gel like consistency and quickly absorbed into my skin. I liked that it felt light and not greasy. It had a slight perfume like scent which faded on application. 

The second step is the snail essence mask. 

 
The mask itself felt thick and strong but soft on my skin. It was loaded with lots of essence but I did not experience any dripping. I liked the mask , it seemed to hold all the essence together on my face for 30 minutes and I felt comfortable with it the whole time.  After removing the mask,  I gently massaged the remaining essence into my skin.

The third step is the Anti-aging Night cream.Again the instructions state to apply the cream focusing on the area around the eyes and lips. And just like the ampoule, I had so much of the cream that I applied them on my face, neck and feet. The night cream is a thick, rich cream that did not feel heavy or greasy on my skin. Though it does take sometime to get absorbed into the skin. But once it is ansorbed, the cream made my skin hydrated , soft and bright. 

FINAL THOUGHTS
Overall I really loved pampering my skin at night by using this mask after a long day. This mask is perfect for travel as well as for everyday use , especially on those days when you might feel so lazy to go through the whole night time skin routine. I liked that it was so easy and convenient to use ( I used this whole 3 step mask lying down in my bed) and wake up to glowing , beautiful skin in the morning. Thank you so much skin18.com for supplying this amazing mask!

Reveal Your Bright

L’oreal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal

Our daily UV exposure , natural aging, hormonal changes and past acne marks cause an overproduction of skin darkening pigments making our skin look dull with an uneven skin tone. As we age, our natural ability to shed dead skin cells decline resulting in dark spots and uneven skin tone becoming more visible.

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal is dermatologist – inspired skincare line powered with : 

●Glycolic , helps in brightening and aanti-dark spots.

●Vitamin Cg, a known antioxidant with photo – protective properties

●Pro-Retinol ,  improves skin renewal minimizing wrinkles and uneven skin tone . 

First up in this collection is the ●RevitaLift Brightening Scrub Cleanser

This scrub has a light citrusy scent that disappears soon and does not linger long. This scrub had small exfoliating beads which helps in removing dead cells from the skin. My skin felt soft and smooth after using this product . 

Next is my favourite product in this line, ●RevitaLift Brightening Peel Pads.

The tub comes sealed and the pads are pre-soaked . When I first opened this product , I got a strong smell but the scent thankfully fades after application . The pads are so heavily soaked that one can cut it into two and use it twice. In this case, a little goes a long way . I have used similar products like this in the past but they Re very expensive . These pads work just as effectively as the other high end brands but cost less. I like using them every night and waking up to bright, smooth and glowing skin . 

Next is the ●RevitaLift Brightening Daily Lotion . 

This moisturizer contains SPF30 which is a must for me in any day cream . It has a citrusy scent but it fades away after application . Though the moisturizer has a thick texture , it absorbed quite well into my skin and did not leave a white cast . My skin felt soft and smooth after application . 

And finally we have, ●RevitaLift Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer.

This product also had a light citrusy scent but it quickly fades away upon application . This product comes in a dual shaped pump in which one side emits a lotion like serum and the other side emits a gel like moisturizer . The product applies smoothly but took sometime to sink in and get fully absorbed into the skin . It is not very moisturizing but for my combination skin it seems okay. And if my skin still feels dry , I just layer another moisturizer on top. 

I have been using this routine for a month , and it seems to be helping with my dark spots. They do seem lighter and my skin looks more radiant and bright. I received these products from Influenster for testing purposes and all opinions are my own.

Sahajan Protective Face Serum 

I received this product in one of my subscription boxes. Though I was very excited to try it, I had other products to finish first. So when a spot opened up in my beauty routine,  I eagerly started using it. So here is my full review of the Sahajan Protective Face Serum. 

Sahajan Skincare is a new Canadian brand that has a unique approach to beauty- it is a fusion of Ayurvedic remedies and organic science. A way to heal and nourish hair and skin, without worrying about the ingredients.

Sahajan is a Hindi word meaning intuition. The founder of Sahajan Skin Care, Lisa Mattam started this line of products after finding her toddler putting her beauty creams all over her face. Worried about what was actually in the creams and what was going on her daughter’s face, she wanted to create products with organic and natural ingredients for body and hair. Sahajan was inspired by Lisa Mattam’s traditions from back home – Kerala in Southern India which is rich in Ayurvedic traditions.

Ayurveda is simply the “science of life” , a 5,000 year-old system developed in ancient India and used in over 80% of households today.Ayurveda embraces the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of health while  seeking to balance the heart, body and mind, using plant-based medicine, diet, yoga, and meditation. Oils are a huge component of Ayurveda, and these Ayurvedic oils play a crucial role in the Sahajan Skincare product line. Lisa worked with a team of scientists in Canada to formulate the products with the assistance of Ayurvedic doctors in India.Ayurvedic medicine has developed natural – and delicious – ways to nourish the skin. 

The Protective Face Serum (50 ml / $70 CAD) is a silky rich serum that’s full of beneficial antioxidants such as – Coconut Oil which nourishes and hydrates, while Honey helps repair the delicate skin around the eyes. Triphala, a powerful antioxidant blend of three fruits, helps to brighten skin’s appearance. Neem Oil is prescribed in Ayurveda as a way to reduce inflammation and signs of tiredness.Gotu Kola is a medicinal herb that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, firms the skin and improves skin elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and plumps the skin, revealing that youthful glow. 

The serum has a gorgeous and luxe yet gentle scent.The scent includes a natural accord of soft woody Cedarwood, East Indian Sandalwood Oil with traces of exotic warm Cinnamon Spice, Bold Geranium and soothing Lavender Oil topped with Fresh Bergamot plus Lemon, Lime and Orange Oils.The scent is very natural and not oppressive, and disappears as the skin absorbs the products.

The serum is a rich creamy brown shade. At first I did not like the color of the serum.As you can see in the photo, the color is not the typical white or clear colour, but beige/brown. It may look like expired or old but it is actually the true colour of all the natural products being used.

I absolutely loved this earthy scented serum. It is quite thicker than an average serum but this would be great during the winter months.  It absorbed very quickly into the skin,  despite being thick, leaving a glowy complexion. I did not experience any skin irritations or breakouts.The price point is mid to high, but the products are all rich and highly concentrated so a little goes a long way and will last several months.

Korean Skincare Sheetmasks 

I recently received a package from skin18.com to review some sheetmasks. As I am fairly new to Korean Skincare, I have only started exploring this world since January this year, I was really excited.

This is what I received three face masks and one hydrogel eye patch.

SOC 3D BEAUTY SERUM FACE MASK PACK – RICE WINE  (NOURISHES & FIRMS)

This is three dimensional shaped cotton face mask with rice wine essence. A 3D mask means a mask sheet that is cut and sewed on 3D face shape so that it can fit onto the face contours better. This mask has active ingredients of three different types of ancient rice to moisturize, nourish and firm skin.

The packaging looks very attractive , it is shaped like a bottle and this is the first face mask that I have used that fit my face perfectly. It was a perfect fit. The mask itself is thick and heavy with serum. It felt soft and delicate on my skin. The serum itself is nice and thick and does not feel sticky.After removing, my face felt refreshed and well nourished. My skin looked brighter and smoother.  It had no smell and I did not experience any irritation while the mask was on my face or even afterwards. There were some more serum leftover in the packet which I applied on my hands. Overall  I really like this mask and can see myself using it every week.

LUKE HYDROGEL EYE PATCH FOR EYE PUFFINESS ( PURPLE )

This product claims to help reduce eye puffiness and to tighten the skin under your eyes. The eye patch also contains extracts of mugwort and green tea which helps to moisturize the skin.

The packaging is cute and instructions comes in both English and Korean. It is easy to use just peel and stick the patch on the eye area under your eyes.Once I have opened the package and pulled out the pair of eye patches, I was surprised to find them dry. The ones I have used before are wet or damp and feels slimy. However once I removed the patches from the film it was sticking to , I could see that the other side was sticky and wet and had the same slime – like feel. The dry side looked and felt like bandages, which makes sense I suppose as it will be on the outside. They were easy to apply and adhered quite well to my eye contours. Once I have applied, I did not experience any irritation or burning sensation. They were so comfortable I quite forgot that I was wearing them. After 30 minutes I removed them and though I did not notice any significant difference around my eye area , it did feel refreshing and hydrating. I could see myself using them while traveling or when I am simply very tired at night.  Overall a great product and I enjoyed using it very much!

L’AFFAIR ANIMAL WRINKLE TIGER MASK

This is a super cute fun animal mask from Korea. The mask claims to have moisturizing and brightening properties.

This mask was a lot of fun to use. It has a bright yellow attractive package with instructions in English too. It seems to mostly focus on anti-aging and hydration. Anyway , as you can see it was a very colorful mask once I opened it. I left it on my face for the required 20 minutes, it was not a great fit, just okay, but once I removed it my skin did feel soft, hydrated and smooth. The mask  and the package itself had lots of leftover serum that I applied on my hands and legs. Infact when I first removed the mask from the package, it was dripping with serum and I think I ripped open the package a little harder so some of the serum leaked all over my hands, dress and on the floor. Even after  I had  applied it on my face , the mask was still dripping serum all over my neck and dress. Overall a great mask with loads of serum packed into it and though I liked it a lot I did not like the smell. It had a medicinal like scent that I was not fond of. But I still enjoyed my experience with this fun , colorful tiger mask.

MIRUM FRESH FRUIT AVOCADO REAL NATURE MASK

My least favourite mask in this group. Unfortunately as the name suggests there was nothing natural about this mask. It smelled awful and burned a lot on my skin when applied. The smell was very chemical like and though I could have put up with it. When I applied the mask on my face , my skin started burning and I thought I should give it some time but even after 5 minutes it was still irritating so finally I removed the mask. I was very disappointed with this mask as I love avocado.  Maybe it just did not suit my skin type.  The packaging looks clean and the mask was thick but lightweight and the serum was nice too , not sticky.
Apart from this mask I enjoyed the other 3 items included. Thank you so much skin18.com!
