KOREAN BEAUTY Lamy – Real Rice Paper Eating Mask Pack

KOREAN BEAUTY Lamy – Real Rice Paper Eating Mask Pack

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about 3CE Long Wear Eye Crayon. Today I am reviewing Real 97% Rice Paper Eating Mask Pack from Lamy. These are anti-aging sheet face masks where the actual sheet is made from food-grade rice paper. I think the word ‘Eating’ in the title is a bit misleading – you’re not actually going to eat your face mask! But it does suggest that the mask is natural and made from ingredients that would be safe to eat. I was sent three varieties of Mask Pack to try out – Green Tea, Turmeric...

Temple Spa – The Big Reveal & The Contourist

Temple Spa – The Big Reveal & The Contourist

A few weeks ago I reviewed Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream and explained why my opinion of Temple Spa had been changed for the better. Since then I was lucky enough to receive this Temple Spa skincare duo that I have been trying out for the past few weeks. Temple Spa’s philosophy is all about treating your body like a temple, using relaxing and comforting methods like you would receive in a spa, and their products are designed to treat mind, body and soul. Read on to find out how I got on with the skincare duo… The Big Reveal is a glycolic resurfacing peel for your skin, it works in a flash to lift away dead skin cells and debris and leave the skin looking clear and radiant. It’s a clear gel with a bit of a jelly-like consistency and a very strong acidic smell, the active ingredient here is glycolic acid which lifts those dead skin cells. You apply the gel to your face just like you would a...

Cosmic Beauty – Facial Sheet Masks

Cosmic Beauty – Facial Sheet Masks

I was recently contacted by Cosmic Beauty who are a UK provider of South East Asian beauty products – mainly facial sheet masks. They sell their products via Amazon and Facebook, and they sent me a selection of sheet masks to try. The masks included several for the face, plus an eye mask and a couple for the hands and feet – I didn’t even realise you could get sheet masks for hands and feet! As I’ve tried quite a few of these masks I’m only going to talk in detail today about 2 of them, otherwise the post would be extremely long! Face Q is a range of facial sheet masks from Taiwan. If you haven’t tried a facial sheet mask before, it is a thin cottony sheet soaked in a liquid product that you place over your face and leave for a while (just like you would do a regular cream mask). It has holes for the eyes, nose and mouth so you can still see and...

Timeless Truth – Face Masks

Timeless Truth – Face Masks

I was actually sent these sheet face masks ages ago but it’s taken me until now to get round to reviewing them. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long, I love face masks and use one every week, but I think I was maybe put off by the fact that these are sheet masks and I thought they might be a bit fiddly to use. The three facial sheet masks that I have here are all from Timeless Truth: Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask, Organic Silk Fibre Elixir Mask and Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask. If you’re new to sheet masks the idea is this – it’s a piece of fabric that has been soaked in the face mask product (this could be a liquid, gel or cream) and you simple peel off the backing sheet and place it over your face. There are holes for the eyes, nose and mouth so you can still see and breathe. They’re probably a little bit quicker to apply than a...
