Otaku Ance Sheet Mask

DSCN0373

Here is my review for the otaku acne sheet mask. I got mine from imomoko.com in a sample pack that was 11.00$ This one is the acne mask, and I wrote the name/function on it, because I cannot read the Korean, Japanese or Chinese. The mask comes with a plastic sheeting on the mask to keep it moist, and shaped. You do have to be careful with these masks because they are very easy to rip/break them.

I chose this mask because I was just getting my period and I had a few breakouts pop out of my skin, and it was pissing me off. I did have blackheads, and a few acne spots on my skin, and acne scars and redness. I put this mask on my skin and left it on for 15-20 mins.

After the mask was done, my skin was smooth, moisturized, and my blemishes and acne spots were diminished. It wasn’t  a huge turn out, but it was enough to help my acne shrink, and my acne spots were lighter too. It also helped with my excess sebum/oil in my t- zone area. My blackheads were cleaned out and my pore were looking great.

have you tried this mask? or others like it? let me know. any recommendations would be welcome too.

Until my next face mask day/night. stay tuned for more sheet mask reviews.

Battle of the Face Primers

Primers were an aspect of my routine I used to be really lazy with. I don’t suffer from oily skin, but do have some dry patches, which makes some products sit badly on my skin and emphasise pores. I’m also a big fan of using cream products, which have a habit of sliding off the skin unless you use a good primer or powder. Along the way of my primer exploration journey, I tried a number of products. I thought I’d give you guys the low-down on what I discovered and if the products really worked :).

Love Me Beauty Box – July Edition

Love Me Beauty – July 1st Edition

This is my first beauty box adventure. I have always wanted to try a beauty box, but with the wide range available I couldn’t decide which one to try. What held me back all these months is that they all normally start out with really great products, but as time goes by the quality of the products diminishes.

Along came Love Me Beauty Boxes, they launched last year and after reading various reviews and checking out their website I decided to give them a try. I paid for the 1 Monthly subscription at £10 + P&P (£2.95), and was given a choice of 3 slightly varied Editions for July. I received my July Edition of the Love Me Beauty Box this weekend, and wanted to give you guys a first-hand peak.
