Review: Beauty Clinic 2-Step Masks!

It’s masking time!!

I was “prescribed” with a weeks worth of Beauty Clinic 2 step Masks to try out a month ago!

I’ve received 2 doses of “Whitening Smart Laser” and 2 doses of “Aqua Smart Filler” after stating that my current skin concerns are dehydration and pigmentation/scars.

The Aqua Smart Filer series would help in hydrating my skin while the Whitening Smart Laser will help lightens my scars and pigmentation.

The 2-step masks like its name suggest comes in 2 steps. Once, apply the mask ampoule all over your face, pat it lightly to ensure that it’s absorbed. Then followed by applying the mask sheet.

The texture of both ampoules is thick yet can be absorbed into the skin easily with patting. I usually chill my masks before using it and the cooling sensation helps calm the skin too if you have sensitive skin like me.

The mask sheet itself it super thin and it felt like skin on skin when you put it on. It adhere to the skin pretty well and definitely won’t fall off when you go about doing your chores while masking.

It is recommended to use this mask twice a week so technically 4 dosage can last you for 2 weeks. However, I am an intensive mask user who masks every other 2 days, which is why this is a 1 week dose for me. I alternate the mask, using the Aqua then the Whitening one as recommended for best efficiency.

After using the masks, I noticed that my skin tone is brighter overall, some of my scars do seem to be lighter too but I feel that it’s more of an overall brightening effect. My skin is also much plump up and feels less tight after using the masks.

Overall I rate these masks a 4/5 as my skin does have a difference after using it. I really like how the essence are more of a thick and slightly gooey texture.

Beauty Clinic have a wide range of masks to cater to different skin problems! Available at Sephora, BHG, SASA and selected Guardian outlets!

Review: Lovemore Kiss Purple Crystal & Peptide Duo Lifting Mask

Here’s another review! I also received this Lovemore Kiss Purple Crystal & Peptide Duo Lifting Mask from Secretive. This mask consists of peptide which stimulates collagen production which helps improve skin elasticity.

The Lovemore masks comes in box of 5 which can last me 1 to 2 weeks.

I love the packaging of this mask, lovely shade of purple and princessy design.

This mask is also relatively thick and not too thin. Like the sexylook one, it’s soaked with the essence.

Comes with ear hooks too for that lifting effect and if you notice the sheet mask design is not plain and has more texture.

The fit of the mask is quite ok, wide enough but not long enough. I feel that it does not fit as well. The ear hooks are not as tight but it’s actually more comfortable.

Skin do feel more refreshed and smoother after masking. I would rate this a 3.5/5 as I felt this it would be better if it’s of a better fit.

Review: Sexy Look Extreme Whitening Duo Lifting Mask

Was sent two types of masks by Secretive and one of them is the Sexy Look Extreme Whitening Duo Lifting Mask.

I’ve personally tried the Hello Kitty range by Sexy Look before and love it. What I love is the ear hooks which not only keep the mask in place and also give a lifting effect.

Main ingredient of this whitening mask is Black Pearl which is a well known and widely used ingredient for whitening masks. It aims to whiten and help even out the skin tone. And of course, most mask as such helps hydrates the skin.

Sexy Look masks comes in a pack of 5 pieces. Normally for me, a pack of 5 usually last one week or two weeks. This is because I mask every 2 to 3 days. Which I feel will give the maximum effect.

Each mask pack feels thick and heavy unlike some masks which can be quite light.

The sheet mask is thick and thoroughly soaked with the essence.

The mask is thick but not too thick. Thickness is just nice as it will easily tear if too thin.

The mask comes with two ear hooks. One by the side.

The other from the chin/neck flap which will actually help in lifting up the face.

It looks like this after hooking up. The mask is in place tightly in contact with the skin which helps in absorption process.

Look at how well the mask lies on the skin. No worries about it dropping off if you’re those that do not stay still while masking.

Skin feels moist and more firmed up after masking.

Overall, it brighten up the skin tone after one usage. Have used it twice and I do feel that my skin seems brighter. My skin do also felt firmer which I think is due to the lifting feature of the mask.

Definitely a 4/5 rating for this mask. Just the right thickness and I love the ear hooks which keeps it in place. For those who like to do other stuff while masking like me, blogging while masking, this is the right mask for you! XD
