Mandom Barrier Repair Facial Mask Moist
Do you think that beautiful baby is impressed by my masking skills? I sure hope so! Shoutout to this baby for having a beautiful complexion, by the way.
A downside about Japanese skincare I've noticed is that there's very little if any English printed on the packaging. Luckily, @beautybysunrise included a printout describing the mask's features and functions. This mask contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and does not contain any fragrance, colorants or preservatives.
The mask material is thick but silky smooth and soaked with essence. There was a good palmful of extra jelly-like essence left to spread on top of the mask.
After ~30 minutes, I was really impressed with how calm and hydrated my face felt. I could almost get away with skipping moisturizer/cream!
I've been keeping backups of the @cosrx snail mask for days when my face feels irritated and I think this is another great mask to keep on hand for skin emergencies.
You can purchase a box of 5 masks for $12.99 from @beautybysunrise.

Cosrx Low pH BHA Overnight Mask
I've been testing this mask over the past 2 weeks and happy to say this is another winner from @cosrx! I'm already a fan of the rice and honey sleeping masks so I wasn't surprised this is .
Unlike the other Cosrx sleeping masks that just sink into my skin, this BHA mask is very occlusive where it seals in all the layers of skincare underneath. It has a thick balmy texture and it does contain dimethicone which accounts for it's silky texture. Because this felt so much like a silicone-based primer, I tried to use this as a makeup primer once. Long story short, I had the worst makeup day ever and will be sticking to using this at night!
I use about a edamame bean size amount for my whole face and neck. This mask has a slight tea tree scent but doesn't linger.
This mask contains 0.9% Betaine Salicylate, a BHA. I didn't think it would be strong enough to exfoliate. I never felt any tingling or stinging like I do with other acid treatments.
However, I was doing my usual oil cleansing step about a week into using this mask and noticed that the sides of my nose felt much smoother. I looked closer at my nose pores and they did look much clearer!
I will continue to use this mask through the winter & spring, but might be a little too heavy to use when it warms up.
You can purchase a 50ml tube of this mask for $21 from @cupidrop.official.

About a month ago, @memebox sent me a Valentine's Day package filled with new @nooni_official lip products! After sunscreen, my can't live without product is lip balm so these products were promptly opened and tested.
To be frank, I am not a lip oil person and will probably never be. I just prefer waxier lip products which is why @burtsbees Lip Balm (original only) and @holysnails Sheepish lip balms are my fave. However, I don't hate these Nooni lip oils mostly because they feel more lip a lip gloss rather than a slippery oil. My favorite of the oils is the Appleberry because it gives a slight tint (think Cherry Chapstick-level) and I look like I have my shit together even on no makeup days
The Applebutter Lip Mask is by far my favorite product of the line and I believe it's the same as the old Apple Water Blending Lip Mask. I actually keep the lip mask at my office to prevent my lips from cracking due to the blasting heater and/or cold AC! Despite having apple in the name, the product doesn't have a scent and has a nice thick waxy texture. It's not as heavy as the Aritaum Ginger Lip Mask.
BTW, you still have one more day to enter @colebiancardi's giveaway for all 4 products! Check out her post for more details on how to enter.

Puriface EMP Collagen Boost Mask
EMP = Eggshell Membrane Pack. The eggshell membrane is that thin layer of film you might see on hardboiled eggs (and the bane of my existence when trying to peel the eggs!) The membrane contains 80% collagen which is supposed to help soften and revitalize your skin! Ok, maybe the membrane is not so annoying to me now.
This mask has a floral/rose-like scent and is made of a super thin material that adhered SO WELL. Love a good fitting mask because I feel like it's giving every inch of my face the skincare benefits!
After ~30 minutes, I removed the mask and thought my face felt much smoother and bouncier. I kept poking my cheeks because they were so plump and bounced back immediately.
