LaF Skin 7 Solutions Ampoules x Adventure Time Collaboration Review

Sunday, September 18, 2016


Rejoice, Adventure Time lovers!

Ofcourse I was intrigued when I saw this collaboration. To be really honest, I wasn't so interested in the brand before the collaboration come out since their previous packaging looked plain. I guess cute packaging makes it, huh?

I only asked LaF(Lost and Found), the company, about the Jake ampoule (Pore & Calming) since it is related to my skin concern, but they are soooo generous to send me 3 ampoules, 2 sheetmasks and couple of cute Adventure Time stickers!!!!! It was unexpected and my heart's content was (and always) filled with joy when I receive surprise gifts. Thanks, LaF! I use the stickers to decorate my boring laptop.

I cannot find the full ingredients list to these.


The ampoules use a pipette application. The bottle is hard glass so you have to be careful not to drop it.

T E X T U R E S


Oil-Drop Ampoule: Was expecting an oily texture, but its not. It felt more like a lotion. Smells like hard candies. It immediately smoothens skin right after application, making it feel soft and smooth. Fully absorbed into skin after awhile. The finish is matte yet it gives a light sheen effect. Lightly moisturizes.


Waterbomb Ampoule: clear gel consistency that has that faint typical aloe scent. Absorbs into skin well, dries to matte, lightly moisturizes and not hydrating on its own.


Pore & Calming Ampoule: consistency is similar to Waterbomb, both are gels but the color of this one is a bit cloudy and has a faint pleasant perfume scent. Lightly moisturizes, feels a bit sticky so I give a few minutes before layering another product on top.


Review, Results & My overall thoughts:
Oil-Drop Ampoule: the name is kind of deceiving for me since the texture isn't oily at all. I like how it smoothens skin instantly after applying, so it definitely suits people with rough skin. Requires to layer additional moisturizers on top since it lightly moisturizes. I love the wonderful ingredients such as honey, royal jelly and caviar. I finished BMO and not thinking to purchase it since it doesn't give me a tremendous impact. I emptied BMO already.

Waterbomb Ampoule: Just like the Oil-Drop Ampoule, I think this one is deceiving too since I was expecting it to be reallyyyyy moisturizing due to the 'Waterbomb' name and also the fact that it contains Hyaluronic Acid. This only lightly moisturizes for me. I also emptied FINN already, I don't think the soothing part with aloe leaf water did anything on my skin. Not going to purchase this as well.

Pore & Calming Ampoule: This is the only ampoule that I want to purchase. I noticed that my stubborn pore size is reduced throughout use! My pores do make a come back after I wash my face but after I applied this, it contracts my pores to an extend that my pores don't look big even when I look into the mirror upclose. I am amazed by this product and I think it is the first time that I feel my stubborn pores lost against a pore tightening product. It also did smoothen my skin and control sebum eventhough it doesn't do anything on calming my angry acne. I admit that my skin feels dry and tightened while I'm using this, it proves that it is actually reducing the size of my pores and control oiliness. I hope the effect is going to be long term because I don't have a backup of this and it is finishing soon *cries*


Will I recommend?
Yes, I didn't experience any irritations while using these. Them all are good enough for layering. If you are oily to very oily, I definitely recommend to give the Jake ampoule a try. Since it is constricting the pores, I think it will only make dry skin drier. Hope it will work well on everyone!

Where to purchase?
You can purchase directly from their Amazon site at https://www.amazon.com/s?marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&me=A1L0G590ZLAB6H&merchant=A1L0G590ZLAB6H&redirect=true

I think they don't produce any of the Adventure Time packaging anymore, even it is sold out at TesterKorea, but I am sure how they are in Watsons Korea. The original size costs $20 per 30ml.

If you are in Korea, you can get them at inflight.co.kr and Watsons stores(offline store). If you are international, you can opt from personal shopper service from Korea to get these delivered to you.

Additionally I also want to share with you guys reviews on their sheetmasks that they sent me! I reviewed this on my IG longgg ago so I am just going to copy paste what I've said.


LaF Step by 7 Step, 3 Step - Chance to Relax Review

"This facemask line is a 7-day treatment where you apply one sheetmask a day so that your skin condition becomes good and poreless.
💚 Centered towards flushed/sensitive/dry skin problems. Contains Saline Solution, Centella, Willow Bark, Tea Tree and Lemon Water. Saline & Centella claims to smoothen the skin after peeling/detoxification.
💚 Mask was juicy, drippy & has a median cotton texture. Scentless. Accidentally poured too much of its clear essence bcos I didn't know theres alot inside! It was enough for both of my arms and legs. Has the most perfect fitting ever with only 0.1% contour excess. Left on for 40 mins, 50% dried. Adhered well.
💚 Results: I didn't want to take it off bcos of the perfect fitting. Anyway it dries semi-dewy, left my skin moisturized, brightened, healthy looking & somehow relaxing! No side effects. My blemished spot has lightened too!! will purchase this!!! Thank you @laf_beautyanswer for providing me this awesome mask😚 check them out at inflight.co.kr"


LaF Step by Step 6 Step Blow Up Volume Review

"Face mask that provides solutions for wrinkle/loose/sunken skin types. Mainly contains Volufiline, Horse Oil, Rose Centifolia Flower Water, Witch Hazel Extract & Betaine.
💙 Volufiline gives volume to the skin and outlines the face beautifully. Hempseed Oil gives anti-aging effect by making the skin elastic internally. Time: approx 25mins, mask dried a bit.
💙 Juicy mask but not drippy, not much of its remaining essence, perfect fitting, has faint typical perfumey sheetmask scent.
💙 Results: lightened redness from blemishes, moisturized, dewy finish and bouncy feel. Impressive and will purchase! Thank you @laf_beautyanswer , it is a wonderful experience in trying out your face masks!"


Seriously inlove with the fitting. I want to get the whole line of LaF masks. You can purchase their masks from the above links as well.

THANK U LaF for sending me these cuties! Do follow them at their IG: @laf_beautyanswer to stay tuned with their updates, who knows which cartoons they are going to have a collab with in the future!

Red4Doors Bio-cellulose Masks Review

Wednesday, September 14, 2016


I received these biocellulose masks directly from Ceracoco back then in May'16 *whoooppps, long overdue review, this is because I like to save up biocellulose masks for the last, haha.* and I've only finished using all of them by end of August/early Sept, I can't even remember but I recorded their performances in my phone's note app and my notebook.

I remembered that I finished my last piece of Innisfree biocellulose mask thought I won't be getting any biocellulose masks until I have a decent income since they're quite pricey for a piece. And then suddenly these came in the mail from Korea, I felt so happy!!!!! it is like a 'replacement/biocellulose mask backup' gift, haha. Thank you, Ceracoco!

Ceracoco is a new Korean brand. These biocellulose masks, a mild cleanser and a ceramide cream are their only current products. I think Red4Doors is the specified brand name for their masks. The masks are (from left to right) Red Treatment, Green Treatment and Yellow Treatment and they are themed as Color Treat Mask. For example, the Red Treatment mostly consisting of red fruit ingredients. Can you guess what they are?

I ended up using these up because they are expiring in 2017. As usual before proceeding with my reviews I am going to talk about the fitting first to give you guys the idea of the application

Upon opening, the biocellulose mask is tucked in the middle between 2 thin fabric-like protectors. It was a bit hard to separate it since it is thin. Once I pasted the mask on my face, it sticks right on and kind of hard to adjust. If I attempted to adjust, it will wrinkle. The mask feels like a thin jelly, I am not sure what it was made out of, the Innisfree one was made out of fermented soy, but I am not sure in this one. Fitting on the top part was fine but the chin area is a bit oversized for me, but there was no problem with flaps and un-clinging-ness whatsoever since it can be folded and sticks on well on the skin without slipping. Theres no dripping too since the essence were soaked by the mask.

Anyway, theres ALOT of essence in the packet, its even enough to apply on my whole body and parts of body twice. All masks smell has the same nyummy fruity scent.


Red4Doors Biocellulose Mask Color Treat Mask - Green Treatment


Main green ingredients are Aloe, Broccoli and Avocado


Full ingredients list. The proclaimed main ingredients are listed on the 2nd row. Alcohol is 4th on the list but I didn't experience any bad reaction

Experience:
The green treatment is the first one I've tried. This one has a watery cloudy light green essence. All masks have the same essence consistency but the color differs. Red Treatment has cloudy pinkish color, Yellow Treatment has light yellow color.

I kept on for 30mins since its desirable time was 20~40mins, however the forehead and nose areas were 100% dried on the minute of 10 (I do not know about you but I become worried if a mask completely dries on me). I thought there was not so much essence in those areas. At this time, I learned that I should dip the the mask into its essence beforehand (before unfolding it). The lacking of essence could be from the backings, since they are like preventing the actual mask from mixing with its essence in the packet.

Results:
It soothed my redness, left skin moisturized, hydrated, dries to matte, no sticky feeling and skin became clearer. Green mask is targeted for lifting but I am not sure if I saw any of lifting results.


Red4Doors Biocellulose Mask Color Treat Mask - Red Treatment


The main red fruit ingredients are Pomegranate, Tomato, Grapefruit


Results:
Moisturized, hydrated skin, gives me some glow and did make my complexion to look awake. This is really vitalizing indeed.


Red4Doors Biocellulose Mask Color Treat Mask - Yellow Treatment


Main yellow ingredients are Mango, Yuzu and Papaya. I think I never masked with any of these ingredients before!


Results:
This one smells lightly of citrus scent. It indeed brightened my skin, gives dewy-ness, supple, moisturized and hydrated skin. However, I noticed a pimple thats wanting to come out on my chin the next morning. I had one left of this mask that time and didn't want to use it again so I gave it away to Oppa.

My Final Thoughts:
These biocellulose masks does what they claimed to. I love how it has tons of remaining essence inside the packet and love the fact that it is a fun themed mask. Overall I think they are just okay. I was actually expecting more from these since the results of the Innisfree biocellulose mask lasted for 2 days on me. this series is the second biocellulose masks I've ever tried. I may or may not repurchase these~

Will I recommend?
Yes, I hope it works well on other individuals too.

Where to purchase?
You can purchase these at www.ceracoco.com. They used to cost 10,000 (approx USD 8.8) won each but now the price is lowered to 4,000 won each (approx USD 3.5). Thats why I was expecting alot from these since the prices were expensive. Now that it has been reduced, the price is not bad.

Their other products that you might want to look out are their Mild Coco Capsule Cleanser and Max Moisture Cream that contains ceramide and coconut oil.

Thank you, Ceracoco for sending these over. I enjoyed using your biocellulose masks! I hope you can come up with more exciting products in the future ^^

Shray Skincare Review

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

It is 10:22PM as I am writing this blog post. I am sleepy but it is still early for me to sleep (as for me, because I am a night owl). Also, I miss blogging when I haven't done any in weeks.



Shray Skincare was so kind enough to send their masks to my way back then in July. Shray Skincare is a New York based beauty company that have their masks manufactured in Taiwan. I know most Taiwanese mask qualities are good, so I was so excited to try it out! I also read positive reviews about them on Instagram. My first impression of their masks is that the packaging is unique!!! The envelope design is pretty, I enjoyed unboxing them as well, haha. and believe me, the prints inside are soooo pretty!!! You will see them all below. It makes me don't want to throw it away after using.

Here are some background regarding the company(taken directly from their website)

Why Are SHRAY Masks Unique?

Our masks are designed with a unique formula that hydrates, repairs, and boosts your skin's metabolism for healthy glowing skin. Unlike other skincare brands that use cotton for their face masks, SHRAY uses a thinner natural wood-pulp material making it easier for hydration to travel through your pores.


SHRAY's Effect on Skin Hydration Levels

According to dermatologists, well-hydrated skin should contain 50-60% of water content. As seen in the table below, SHRAY masks increase the average person's skin hydration level to 56% - right in the dermatologically recommended range! 



To see the microscopic results for yourself, visit our blog article about the experiment that proves the dramatic before and after differences with SHRAY masks.


Which Mask Fits My Skin Best?

Go-Getter Goddess (our featured summer mask!): For those with aging skin - this mask has cell renewal properties and protects your skin against aging, wrinkles, and sun damage. Visit the Go-Getter Goddess

Queen Bee: For those with oily and acne-prone skin - this mask uses honey extract and amino acids to suppress acne and reduce inflammation/redness. Visit the Queen Bee


Ms. Amazing: For those with dry or sensitive skin - this mask contains natural ingredients that work beneath the skin's surface to lock in moisture, promote cell growth, and tighten pores. Visit Ms. Amazing


Shray Skincare masks are suitable to use for travelling, solving skin problems, as a makeup primer and of course, in our skincare routine. It is suggested to keep on the mask for 10 minutes, but I went overboard to 20~25 mins. Most masks are still fresh on the 10 mins count and I don't want to take it off just yet, haha.



These are their only current products. The first one I tried was Queen Bee, because my skin was irritated and really in need soothing and healing. Before proceeding with my reviews, I am going to talk about the fitting first.



Thin cotton mask, oh how I love a thin cotton mask, and it is soaked and drippy too. The material is delicate and soft, so you have to be extra careful upon unfolding. Actually when upclose, the mask has like dotted patterns (as I remember, or was it a different pattern?). The fitting fits perfectly on me and the bottom part on the chin did not connect, so you have to overlap to connect it, this though makes the mouth area to narrow, it didn't bother me anway. The mask has a plastic backing that is required to take off before applying on the face. The mask stayed on well throughout use.

Now lets get on to Queen Bee review!




See the bee there? I love it that they put symbol of the 'main hero' of the mask on the packaging!


Love the 'Egyptian Princess' feel~


Honey infused, redness soothing, acne treating mask


"Take note from the ultimate Queen Bee, Cleopatra. This power woman kept up her disarmingly beautiful looks with facemasks made of raw honey. A soothing natural antibacterial, honey is ideal for preventing and squashing persistent pimples and redness. Apply this mask so you can continue being Queen Bee, blemish-free.

Function: Queen Bee is used for acne prone skin. Honey Extract, a natural antibacterial, is abundant in vitamins and amino acids to calm inflammation and reduce redness.Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract is a pore tightener and helps control sebum production. Centella Asiatica Extract nourishes skin and quickens the healing process by increasing blood circulation and boosting cellular metabolism.

22ml/ 0.74 fl.oz"

Expiry date of the masks are printed on the top right on the back of the packet

Mask smelt lightly of honey, doesn't smell artificial

Kept on for 25 mins, it was still damp but theres noticeable dry areas on mask

Results:
Skin left bright, calmed, soothed, moisturized, hydrated and acne treating indeed! Ah wish I could show you guys the before and after pict. I remembered I had some redness on my face and acne inflammation, this mask is really acne-treating indeed! The essence on the face dries to matte, this goes the same to all of their masks.

I would super loveeeeeee to get more of Queen Bee!

Go-Getter Goddess Review


That rose symbol looks like something off Beauty and the Beast style!


ahhhhh love all the girlish design


Rose infused, anti-aging, skin regenerating mask


"Aphrodite was one impressive goddess of love: stunning, powerful, and eternally youthful. The red rose was Aphrodite’s sacred plant—and for good reason. Rich in Vitamin C and full of antioxidants, roses protect skin cells from damage and help tighten pores for a youthful glow. Apply this mask so you can continue being a Go-Getter Goddess, at any age.

Function: Go-Getter Goddess is used for thorough hydration of tired skin with potent anti-aging properties to give glowing results. It contains Rose Oil to moisturize skin, ameliorate the aging effect, and boost new skin cell regeneration. Acerola Extract, a tropical plant, lightens dark spots from the sun or blemishes. Licorice Root Extract is a potent anti-inflammatory agent to smooth complexion and reduce redness and irritation.

__________________________________________________________

Ingredients: Rose Oil, Acerola Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra(Licorice) Root Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pure Water, Glyceryl Acrylate, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Sodium Polyglutamate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil

Contains less than 0.25% preservative to prevent bacterial growth

22ml/ 0.74 fl.oz"

Lightly smell of roses, but not the sweet roses smell

Time: 20 mins

Results:
Left skin soft, smooth, moisturized, hydrated and reduced redness. I would say this is my second favorite after Queen Bee, eventhough I don't notice on pore tightening. If this is used frequently then results of blemishes being lightened can be seen.

Ms. Amazing Review



LOVE ITTTTT



"You are your own super hero. Now meet your secret weapon. A moisturizing mask that is gentle enough for everyday use yet tough enough for your supercharged life. Apply this mask so you can go on being Ms. Amazing, no matter the opponent.

Function: Ms. Amazing is an ultra hydrating mask to quench thirsty,ragged, and dull skin. It contains Hyaluronate which is a natural phospholipid produced by the skin, which holds in water and plumps the surface.Ours is nano-sized for instant absorption. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract is a pore tightener and helps control sebum production. Piper Methysticum Extract works under the skin to internally attract and hold moisture. Hydroxyethyl Urea is another natural moisturizer which helps seal in water and accelerate cell renewal. And finally, essential to hydration is Pure Water.

__________________________________________________________

Ingredients: Pure Water, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Oryza Sativa(Rice) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Piper Methysticum Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dithiaoctanediol, Gluconic Acid, Sutilains, Beta-Carotene, Tocopherol Acetate, DMDM Hydrantion, Iodopropynyl Butylcabamate, Perfume

Contains less than 0.25% preservative to prevent bacterial growth

22ml/ 0.74 fl.oz"

Has a faint fresh scent. Time: 20mins

Results:
Ms. Amazing is somehow a bit disappointing for me. It left my skin moisturized and hydrated, seemed to calm redness but since it sounded to be a really moisturizing one, it dries to matte (when I expected the finish to be dewy) and didn't help with my tiny dry patches. It claims to tighten pores but I didn't notice much of a difference. This is my least favorite among all, but I think it is okay for a basic moisturization.


By the way, the masks have tons of essence thats enough for the whole body inside the packet!!!

Will I recommend?
Yes, definitely. The masks does not contain alcohol too. If you have an acne-prone skin like me then I suggest to try out their Queen Bee mask. it is seriously a good acne-care mask out there!!! I also loveeee the fact that its first ingredient is the mask's main ingredient.

Where to purchase?
You are able to find their masks at their website www.shrayskincare.com
Each mask costs $10. Yes I know it sounds expensive but if you buy a pack of 5 of the same type, it only costs $30, which makes it $5 each. The suggested use is once a week so I guess it is not so bad. It can be made as a perfect gift too~
