The mask is really thick and not the most comfortable to wear. Even though it has these cuts~ I think my face does not fit it :)) After a lot experiences when using a mask, I could now choose which ones I like~ Thick masks like these are my least favorite, I prefer thinner masks because it hugs face better.

image

I don’t know why it is specifically named for woman are there separate masks for men? hihihi They also noted that if you see small grains in the gauze, fret not cause these substances are organic. My least favorite would be the Galactomyces Mask Sheet… for woman the scent is not my type, that’s the first thing I noticed. Cause it smells like car air fresheners~ :( On the other hand, my favorite would be the EGF Mask Sheet for Womanit smells like traditional herbal concoctions! Something which also reminds me of Ginseng~

image

As for efficacy, I think you’ll need to use a variant more than once to see results (It does say on the directions that you should use it 2~3 times a week for maintenance). A sheet costs P60.00 which is pretty, ok! But it didn’t surpass my current favorite mask sheet from Tony Moly. Main reason: the thickness of the mask sheet~ Comfort is highly valued! <3 So I hope Hayan could improve their mask thickness!

image

Next up, my favorite bath time buddy! <3 The Hayan Lavender Salt Body Scrub. I think I’ve already confessed my love for lavender products in one of my posts~ <3 Super duper love lavender scented products because it just relaxes me!

Hayan Korean Cosmetics: The Science of Korean Beauty

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today I was able to make a quick visit to Hayan Korea’s SM Masinag branch (which is newly opened by the way!) Have you heard of Hayan Korea? Well Hayan Korea is a rather new brand to me also! And discovering a new brand is always delightful because it keeps everything fresh and interesting!

image

{So what is Hayan Korea?}

Hayan /하얀 / means “naturally fair” or “clearly white” in Korean. It is a word that best represents what our company stands for.

We are dedicated to providing active, innovative and effective beauty care for our clients that let them have that naturally clear and beautiful skin. We combine years of expertise and research to ensure our products contain high-quality ingredients to deliver maximum results. We strive to offer the purest, most effective skin care through nature, research and science. Our Concept Store mainstreams skin care essentials such as facial foaming cleansers, toners, serums and moisturizers. The store also boasts of a sophisticated collection of wellness and over-all body basics including varied selections of high-quality make-up, alongside cross-over revolutionary star products.

image

They really made an effort to beautify their store but the lighting was pretty weird because it makes the products look darker than it should be~ Also!!! They should place more mirrors wherein you don’t have to bend forward to look at yourself -.- I also suggest putting price tags on the testers so that customers won’t have to ask and ask about the prices (shy lonely customers like me prefers to actually be left alone when choosing products XD)

image

So first up! The nail polishes! I was not able to try them because I had my polish on~ But the colors are pretty! Well that is because most of them are in the shade of pink >,<

image

A bottle costs 98 pesos as their introductory price! The normal price range for Korean Nail Polishes~

image

Pretty eyeshadow colors ^-^ omo the shades are really nice!

image

image

They have a really nice selection of lip shades! I took most of my time choosing just one shade! They have pinks, reds, a nude (the nude color is very pretty and won’t make you look sick) and oranges!

image

They only had 4 shades of lip glosses but I think it’s enough! They have a pink one, a hot red one (super cool!!!), a clear one, and one that has glitters :>

MyKoreanBoyfriend.com: Song Hye Kyo’s Egg Beauty Secret!~

Remember the scenes were Geum Jandi (Boys Over Flowers) was surrounded by school bullies? She got fresh eggs and flour thrown at her!

Oh!~ And Kim Nana (City Hunter) was also a victim! Is it really a famous form of bullying?

Eggs and flour!~ Ahh I bet it hurts too @.@

Strong females getting hit by eggs! Aigoo bullying should be stopped!

Don’t be sad Geum Jandi, there are benefits from the attack! (Aside from getting cared for by handsome leading men~ kekeke)

Stunning and forever beautiful Song Hye Kyo reveals her beauty secret – Do-It-Yourself recipes using eggs, honey and milk! The eggs helps her keep her skin white, the added honey to brighten her complexion more and the milk ingredient makes her face soft and smooth!

Song Hye Kyo’s Beauty Secret Recipe 1:
Egg White + Honey, Mix the egg white with a spoonful of honey. Apply to face and let it dry. Wait for 10 minutes and rinse off! She uses this mask before bedtime, interval of 2 weeks. It keeps her skin white!

Song Hye Kyo’s Beauty Secret Recipe 2:
Honey + Water, Dilute honey with water and massage onto face. Rinse afterwards. Good to reduce fine lines and the honey makes skin brighter! Also uses this before bedtime with the same interval of 2 weeks.

Song Hye Kyo’s Beauty Secret Recipe 3:
Milk Wash, So fancy! She uses milk to wash her face and make her skin softer and smoother!

Song Hye Kyo’s Beauty Secret Recipe 4:
Ice Cube, Freezing! She uses ice cubes to make her skin firm and tight! So it looks that her face is slimmer~ (But be careful with long exposure because ice could also burn skin!)

- Source: http://www.vivawoman.net

And this particular post will be about a very simple DIY egg mask! You’ll need an empty plastic bottle (clean), a bowl, egg and a mask brush!

Get an egg and crack it open! (No hitting friends with the egg to crack it open ok?!)

But for the mask you’ll only need the egg white! Here’s an easy mess free technique to separate the white from the yolk, which my brother taught me… Suction using the bottle! Place the hole of the bottle over the egg yolk then squeeze the bottle. You’ll see the yolk rising up! Suction complete!

Etude House: It’s Real Mask Sheet Chestnut Shell!~ Exfoliating Care!~

Happy Sunday!~ Today’s review is a mask sent by Etude House Philippines! This one is really interesting~ Because it’s for exfoliating!~ Omo I wonder how it would exfoliate???!!!

Not Extracts But REAL Natural Ingredients. It’s Real Facial Packs/Mask Sheets uses Natural Ingredients As-Is to create facial packs/masks.

It’s Real Mask Sheet (Chestnut Shell) Facial Mask sheet formulated with real Chestnut shell for exfoliant care.

Did a little research on how Chestnut Shells are used for exfoliating!~ And here’s what I found from http://www.ehow.com

  • Commercial manufacturers use walnut shell as an ingredient in facial scrubs and other exfoliating products. The walnut shell gently rubs away dead skin, oil and dirt from the body when properly used. You can make a homemade facial and body scrub from ground walnut shells, yogurt and lemon juice. The yogurt provides a base for the shells and has lactic acid for removing dead skin, while the lemon juice is a natural astringent that closes pores. Mix the ingredients together, rub the mixture gently on the face in a circular motion and then wash it off with plain lukewarm water. Depending on your skin quality, you also can add avocado, apple juice, honey, cucumber or olive oil to your walnut shell scrub.

[Allure:] Real homemade facial mask sheets formulated with natural ingredients for skin softening and nourishing care.

Use this after facial cleansing and toning~ :)

Remove Mask from pouch, see the oozing it’s real natural solution! <3 :D I don’t find the smell nice XD The scent is so strong! Like almond lotions that is heavily scented!!! @.@
