Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask Review | with Spirulina, Marine Complex and Pearl

Annyeong, Everyone~
I haven't been discovering new English songs on Youtube so I wanted to share amazing songs that I heard recently! All of them are from the band Imagine Dragons. O m g their music is DOPE.




Imagine Dragons - Walking The Wire (this one is my personal favourite because I can relate to this song).





Okay, now lets get on the Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask Review!

Disclaimer: I won this product in Shangpree's Instagram giveaway. I am not required by them to do a review of this product nor benefit any compensation but I am a self-proclaimed beauty blogger so of course I have to share about the beauty products that I tried!


I didn't expect quite a bulky packaging for this product! I thought eye masks are going to appear smaller haha. I also received a PINK Shangpree hand mirror in the package. Eeeekkk pink is my favourite colour and the mirror is just gorgeous! I love it~ Thank you Shangpree!💓


What It Is?

This eye-area specific mask is enriched with antioxidant-rich algae, spirulina and chondrus crispus. This anti-aging formula also features soothing herbal and botanical extracts along with deeply hydrating ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate ensures skin is beautifully conditioned and plumped up. Regular use will help balance and brighten the delicate skin about the eyes to promote a clear, smooth, and youthful complexion. 

Size: 1.4g / 0.05 oz x 60 pcs/container

(1) The silky hydrogel material holds moisture and won't dry out
(2) Algae, spirulina and chondrus crispus extracts are antioxidant rich ingredients that promote and maintain healthy skin
(3) Soothing herbal extracts like rosemary and chamomile calm skin
(4) Betaine, allantoin and castor oil condition skin to provide a silky smooth texture

On one side of the box it is stated that a portion of proceeds from Shangpree sales is donated to Korea Green Foundation to assist climate change refugees.

The eye masks' longevity after opening is 2 months. It contains 60 patches inside so if you use every night for 2 months you can finish the product on time!


Product's MFG date: 27th December 2016
Product's EXP date: 26th December 2019

I actually didn't want to open this eye mask early and wanted to save it for next time because it is pricey and I can hardly afford any Shangpree products now but exams were approaching last time and I needed some eye masks to keep my eyes awake and steady.


The product comes with a spatula to pick up the eye masks! It also comes with a seal to avoid the essence to spill out from the tub.

I loveeeeee the beautiful algae/seaweed(??) green colour of the eye patches! They are glittery too.

Anyway, I commuted while I was having my exams and I think the tub isn't really travel friendly as I noticed a little leakage. The essence spilled out a bit and I don't know how it happened.


Thank goodness for the spatula to pick up the eye patches easily because I think picking up with our fingers will be hard as the patches can be slippery.

When I first opened the tub, the eye masks smell nice! Not perfumey, not florally, but just pleasantly nice. The smell isn't really strong and it disappears during application. I guess the botanical extracts make up the pleasant smell of it.

The eye patch itself is not too thin nor too thick. It does adhere well on the eyes within the instructed duration but at some cases I experienced it slipping down slowly but did not completely fall. So far the patches that I used are well saturated with essence.


Direction For Use:

1. Cleanse and tone your skin
2. Take our the masks with the enclosed spatula and place on the areas you desire
3. Leave on for about 20 to 30 minutes
.4. Remove the masks. No need to rinse.

OK guys so after typing out the directions above I just knew that I can place the masks on my forehead, neck and smile lines! I am going to do that!

REVIEW

I have been using these for quite awhile now and I think I am already at half of the tub.

First of all I have been using day and night everyday ever since I opened the tub, the product's longevity is only 2 months so I wanted to use them up quickly. I also have been putting the product in the fridge after using in hopes for the expiry date to last longer.

For first impressions when I used it during my exam week, I like how it refreshes my sleepy eyes and make my eyes feel energized and awake. I guess thats why there is 'energy' in its name, it energizes my eyes!

Later I started to notice that using it twice daily doesn't suit my eye areas' current condition, it was too much so I reduced it to using once a day. I noticed that applying it twice daily makes my eye areas to pill up, the essence doesn't really absorb into my eyes anymore. I am 21 years old, my eye areas are not dry and un-nourished, I think they are normal.

Then using once a day also makes my eye areas to pill, now the fixed routine to put these on is once for every two days, then it won't pill for me.

The way I use them is as directed, place it under my eye areas, wait for 20~30 mins, take off and tap tap in the essence. The essence doesn't leave any sticky/greasy/heavy finish, hence it is plumping!

So overall...

🎔 it makes my eyes feel energized, refreshed and awake.
🎔 my eyes benefited from the anti-aging benefits
🎔 it hydrates, conditions and plumps up my eye areas
🎔 My eye areas did not experience any negative effects such as stinging, redness nor causes any bumps

The cons?

🎔 hmm the pillings? but it is not a really big weakness to me since that I can also apply the eye patch on my forehead, smile lines and neck!
🎔 I don't really notice much in term of brightening but I don't really have deep dark circles

My Final Thoughts

I think it is a great product to use and invest in! I want to purchase these myself in the future when I run out and when I have enough money.  I think that it is worth to buy this product due to the reasonably picked ingredients, you don't see spirulina and plakton extract often in skincare! Moreover if you have dry, aged or un-nourished eyes you might love this product alot! It is really amazing.

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. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

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…

[REVIEW] COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Haven't had the wifi for a week so I didn't get to write a blog post. I feel so lifeless and dead without wifi considering that I have nothing much to do while on a semester break. Wifi is my source of entertainment(and life). I am that kind of person who chooses to bring Wifi over water if I were to strand in an Island.
Now lets get going with one of the most used, raved and recommended COSRX product; COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review
This product contains Natural BHA to control oil while helping to clear recurring pimples. A non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin.
It is one of the recommended products at Jolse since it has alot of positive reviews. it is priced at USD15.30 currently at Jolse, for a 100ml product, the price is not bad. I bought this when I thought that I needed an acne-fighting toner/active product when my skin is breaking out and since I've seen alot of the Asian Beauty people on Instagram implementing this product in their skin…
