Last few weeks have been feeling up and down but that’s life – there are times when things go well and times when they don’t. As I am now focused more on using up products, I do feel my blog is a bit boring but when I thought about quitting, I found myself unable to just throw away what I used, so I decided I will continue in strictly amateur way😂
One of the highlights of the last week was that after over a year of entering different giveaways without any luck, I won one with a relatively new British brand Janna Skin.🎉
My no buy also goes well, I still managed to discourage myself from shopping. Although I did put a few things in virtual basket considering that maybe total value would be easy to part with but then I go through my stash and think about how I want to simplify my life and try all I can without wasting it.
Skin79 Watermelon Girl is another from the Skin79. Delivered what you would expect from your average sheet mask.
Rainbow Beauty SOC 3D EGF moisturising and conditioning serum sheet mask. Not sure whether this mask went bad (it still had 4 months before expiry) as instead of being soaked in watery serum, it looked like it curdled into bits of jelly.
Rainbow Beauty SOC 3D Snail sheet mask. Again, good average sheet mask, leaving a bit of residue but I could continue with my routine easily.
Janna Neck Renewal Targeted Care Mask and Eye Renewal Targeted Care Mask were my prize from Janna Skin Mother’s Day giveaway. Janna is a British brand making sheetmasks with a lovely sachet designs (even London). The sheet was very thin and dripping wet so it adhered well to face and looked almost invisible. The serum didn’t leave sticky or oily residue. I liked both and would really like to try sheetmasks from them, although I have to admit higher price point.
Mizon Enjoy Vital-up Time Calming Mask was in my empties before. I like it although it feels a bit heavy when I use it in the summer. In winter though, it is nourishing just right. I also noticed that it calms my painful breakouts if I have any at the time of use.
Origins VitaZing SPF15 energy boosting moisturiser with mangosteen didn’t feel heavy although it did leave me a bit shiny. I liked the sheer tint release as it didn’t give me mask like effect but the colour it turned into looked rather orange on me but I was able to fix both shine and colour with colour correcting powder. Might be better to use in the summer.
COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch are a great ripe pimple treatment, suck the puss from buggers while also keeping it from more contaminats while sleeping.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Bust Cream is honestly one of few things I would call repurchase forever. Really love it, result and price including.
L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinairy Clay Shampoo is not bad for Elvive, I find it cleanses well without stripping and I like fragrance as well is it not agressive overpowering. Might repurchase.
Yves Rocher Redensifying hair mask is a silicone free, colorant free and paraben free mask for a good price with lighter formula and I liked using it on my girls’ hair but also myself. Might repurchase.
John Frieda Luxurious 7 Day Volume is an in-shower treatment with protein and keratin that you apply after shampoo and conditioner. What I liked about it is that unlike some volume haircare that just make my hair frizzy, this one feels conditioning and I don’t have so many flyaway hair.
Moroccanoil treatment conditioned hair after washing for both me and my daughters and this 25 ml bottle served all three heads weekly for a month. Love it and will definitely repurchase.
