My experience:
it looks like there is only essence inside

This mask is made of something that I’ve never  ever seen before in other sheet masks. The consistency of the hydrogel is less dense making it very fragile yet most effective masks in my entire experience of masking. I’ve fell in love with the toner from this brand and I’ve decided to expand my horizons towards the masks as they did seem to deliver good results for other people.

First of all, the scent of all of the Whamisa hydrogel masks are heavenly. This particular Organic Seeds & Rice Fermented Hydrogel Mask had the mildest fragrance of all three. The ingredient list is the bomb! Everything is natural and organic and EWG certified. Of course there is a huge price tag attached to the “all organic” tag but it is wort it to at least try the mask once in your life to see how well it performs. I slipped my whishlist note to my Santa already and these are on the nr 1 place in the list for coming Christmas.

The hydrogel itself is very translucent and has the same color as the essence. It is a 2-part mask which ensures a great fit for every face shape. To me it felt like the forehead area could be a bit longer because there was approximately 2 cm stripe of uncovered skin left. I could live with that but some of you may not like it so much. It is a lot of money to pay and you do expect great fitting product.

Application time was 40 minutes for me! Very impressive and I felt like this mask could still be left on for another 10 or so minutes easily. My skin was left calmed down, it was seemingly brighter and felt super soft to the touch. I didn’t feel like there was need for more moisture but just in case I’ve applied my Whamisa lotion to pack all the goodness under a protective layer. The best changes in my skin appeared the next day. I’ve produced very little oil through-ought the day and I’ve gotten tons of compliments that I looked very glowy. I agree, I was glowy from within rather than from the surface oils. Very pleasant experience.

brightening effects are super noticeable with this one

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, before I forget. The essence is very slippery so do lay down and enjoy the time you get to use this gorgeous product on the skin!!!!It is definitely worth the price when it comes to the sensory experience with this product. I highly recommend this one in particular.

What is old? What is new?: Empties and new skin care products

Today is the day that I’ve decided to sum up the bunch of stuff that was swirling in my brain and to finally put it on paper. I’ve decided to shortly mention my favorite products that I have used up in last month or so and to finally introduce some new brands into my skin care. So today’s review is all about the Empties and new skin care products that are going to gradually appear on my blog.

Empties:

Nearly everything is gone till the last drop

I won’t be reviewing every sheet mask that I’ve use in the past month here, it is too much work for both me and you so the regular sheet mask reviews will appear as normal content. For al of the products mentioned in today’s post I will rate each product that I’ve used up according to the following score chart:

❇❇❇❇❇– Holy Grail, will probably purchase it up until I retire
❇❇❇❇– Excellent product, will consider repurchasing it (unless I stumble across a better alternative)
❇❇❇– Good one for overal use but there is definitely a better known alternative for it
❇❇– Not impressive or not performing well on my skin
❇– Waste of money (try before you buy)

Skin care

It’s all about the hydration

MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist 150 ml
Rating: ❇❇❇❇❇

Amazing quality! One bottle of this magic juice and lasts me approximately for 3 months. In order to stretch it out for that period of time I am decanting it into a spray travel bottle so that I can use my favorite whenever and wherever. Tip: perfect base for first couple of layers if you enjoy doing the 7-skin method.

MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule 50 ml
Rating: ❇❇❇❇❇

Great addition to the MISSHA First Treatment Essence. It smoothes and calms my skin like no other. I only use it in my evening skin care. (I used to apply it in the mornings too but I now have a lighter alternative for my skin needs). If you never tried it, go and buy it and your skin will love you eternally.

MISSHA Super Aqua Ultra Waterful Cream
Rating: ❇❇❇❇❇

Holy-moly-grail cream for me. The texture is light and silky, resembling a thick gel. Loving everything about it starting from the fresh cactus-like scent of it and ending up with the way it seals all the moisture on my skin. Who knew that my oily skin will love this so much!!!

MISA Geum Sul Emulsion
Rating: ❇❇❇

Love the smell and the packaging of it. Ingredients are very extensive and definitely benefit the aging skin. After going through the entire bottle I do notice the reduction in pigmentation and fine lines. Unfortunately at some days it felt like too much for my skin. If you have a dry skin, definitely give this one a go.

Lange Hydra-Global Active Cream Mask
Rating: ❇❇❇❇❇

Best used as a sleeping mask and not like it is advertised. Amazing skin tightening and hydrating results and zero breakouts. Loving it and had already purchased a replacement jar!!!

Cleansers

Cleansers

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel 400 ml
Rating: ❇❇❇

Quite reasonable cleanser for oily and combination skin. I enjoy it’s light texture and used it every time in my morning cleansing. For now there are plenty of better low pH alternatives out there so I won’t be repurchasing this tube any time soon. It is very economic in use, the 400 ml bottle lasted me for half a year.

MERUMAYA Melting Cleansing Balm 100 ml
Rating: ❇❇

This particular balmy cleanser did nothing to my skin except leaving it greasy after washing it off. It does take the make off and doesn’t irritate the eyes but the finish of it that remained on the skin is unacceptable for me. Better get a good oil cleanser or the Clean it Zero balm for the same price.

 

Cellio It’s True Premium Real Honey Deep Cleansing Foam
Rating: ❇❇❇❇

I love this cleanser and currently it is my top favorite out there but I have a bunch of other brands lined up in my stash that I want to test first and see if this goodness will remain the ultimate winner. It cleanses my skin gently, leaving it hydrated yet free of all the dirt and grime. Impressive and smells nice.

Pore and pimple care

COSRX Clear Fit Master Patch
Rating: ❇❇❇

Pimple patches are my friends. This particular edition is OK but not the best one I’ve tried. I will stick to the classic COSRX acne pimple master patch or the Lioele patches.

Lange Matifying Mask
Rating: ❇❇❇

It was ok but not as high quality in terms of delivering immediate results as other products from this brand. Overall a bit disappointed with it. Still a good product for those who doesn’t want their skin to shrink like a prune during the application.

Body care

MISSHA Fresh Mint Cooling Body Sorbet 
Rating: ❇❇❇

When it comes to the light fresh fragrance of it and feel on my skin after application, this is a clear winner for me. Unfortunately the hydration abilities of it are not spectacular. It is good for the summer or humid environment but not enough for my skin during the colder months.

MISSHA Near Skin Self Control Sticky Massage 200ml

Rating: ❇❇❇❇❇

OMG!!!! My holy grail for….. wait for it…. body!!!!! Whaat? Yep, you heard me! It perorms well on my face but concidering that the jar is 200ml I was never able to use it up within the 12 months since the opening. So here comes the boom- wiht the realization that container is humongous, I’ve started using it on my body and… It completely got rid of my Keratosis Pilaris on my arms. A one skin condition that was never influenced by anything in my life. I swear by this thing and am solely using the next jar on my body as the difference of my skin on my upper arms is tremendous.

P.S> It is not sticky as advertised in the name 🙂

New skin care products:

As for the new skin care, I’ve decided to expand my interests towards organic skin care and hunted down some fun stuff from the Japanese market. Sorry, no Hada Labo product reviews coming…. Yet 😉

Hello from Japan 🙂

Splurge alert !!!

For my birthday I’ve ended up investing into an entire set of Whamisa products. I have sampled each and every product before I bought them  and was quite happy after 1-2x uses. Sorry, my dear wallet, it just had to happen that I wanted them in full-size. Below you can find the list of items that I am already testing or will start testing out on coming Monday. There will be individual reviews of each product that will go live in November because that’s when I’m planning to do it.

I have high hopes for you, guys

Anti-aging products

Since I am going into the winter mode and I just turned 30, I’ve decided to invest into the Geum Sul line by MISSHA and got 3 unique products that stood out of the bunch with their ingredients and their potential use. I also got another version of the Near Skin Self Control Peeling massage thing-of-a-bobs to see if it is going to improve my Keratosis Pilaris any further.

MISSHA Geum Sul investigation continues

❇ MISA Geum Sul Lifting Special Cream 50 ml (the actual jar is on the photo with Whamisa products)

What mask-addict blog wouldn’t include the new masks. Ha-ha, definitely not mine. Over past 4 weeks I’ve collected a whole bunch of amazing looking masks from MISSHA and Hello Skin brands and will be doing the test-drives of these in coming weeks. So definitely stay tuned.

New revies are coming out soon

New brand in town

And of course  last but not least, after the Huxley skin care release I was extremely eager to try out their products and see myself what all the fuss is about. Considering that trying out everything full-size would put an enormous dent into my wallet I’ve opted for the set of miniatures that I am planning to take on my coming vacation in January. I also purchased the miniature set of their oils (which is currently flying across the ocean on one of the shipping courier planes). Soon I will be adding review about them too so don’t hesitate to check out my blog around January for the reviews on this brand.
