July Mask Maven

It's that time of month again....that time when I receive my Mask Maven mask subscription from Beauteque. I posted the above picture on my Instagram but wanted to post here too. in case you don't use Insta. This month's collections includes the following:

Esfolio Banana Essence Mask Sheet
Esfolio Aloe Essence  Mask Sheet
Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet in Green Tea
The Face Shop MasCream Sheet
Scinic My Juicy Bottle Mask Soothing Ampoule Juice
Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Soothing Solution
Tsaio Chamomile Licorice, Green Tea and Sweet Orange

This collection is just ok and I am not too overly impressed with the selection. This month's collection was also just thrown into a bubble mailer and sent. The masks were not in their usual purple mess bag and there was no information card included. Not a great customer service moment. I have already sent an email so I will see what Beautuque.

Stay Beautiful ❤️



Dud Review 1: Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask

I absolute love the idea of doing dud review blog posts, sharing products that just didn't work for my skin. I have decided to adopt this post topic for my blog and of course Instagram. I will also mention dud products during my monthly reviews on my Youtube channel. I honestly believe in the saying "YMMV" (your milage may vary),  an acronym often used to highlight the fact that not every product will work for your skin type and concerns. There are many people out there that will purchase a particular product just because a well know blogger or YouTuber gave a glowing review. I have been guilty myself of doing the exact same thing...buying a product based on a review only to find out that it doesn't work for my skin. So here is my first dud post!

The Mizon Goodnight White Sleeping Mask is a favorite on the Reddit Asian Beauty Sub here so after seeing so many people speak highly of it, I decided to give it a try.



PurpleTale Ode to Hydration Facial Cream Review

I have been testing out a facial cream from the new Korean beauty brand Purpletale and I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.  Purpletale and their pampering skin care philosophy is "to create simple and easy to use products, using only wholesome, enriching ingredients that make you look and feel beautiful".  I love the simplistic design of their packaging and of course I love the purple containers. Purple is my favorite color. When the founder and owner Young-Ji reached out a few months ago, I jumped at the chance to try out this product. Purpletale is becoming more popular in Korea and I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Purpletale is based in South Korea and ships to the US.



May Spring Repasse 6 Energy Super Whitening Cream Review

Today I want to review the Repasse 6 Energy Super Whitening Cream by May Springs that I recently won in a giveaway. Since my recent battle with acne has subsided and my skin is finally back to normal, I have been trying to test as many whitening products as possible to help fade some post acne scars. As you can imagine, I was pretty stoked to test out this cream and see if it lives up to its claims.
