Shray Skincare Review

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.

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.

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~

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now.

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…
