PEACHES & CREME X KEZIA: KEZZIESCORNER’S SELF-CARE BOX!! KOREAN BEAUTY!

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care. I would like to began today’s post by wishing you all a lovely EASTER! I know that this Easter, just as last year’s we are restricted, we cannot see who we wish to see or go where we wish to go, yet I hope you are taking care and creating new rituals to support you all through this difficult time.

Today’s blog post is an EXCITING one, I never thought I would be able to share such an opportunity with you all, however, here is one of the most EXCITING posts I have ever had to write!

A few days ago, I received a cute package from Peaches and Creme Shop, they are a company that LITERALLY stock a whole lot of KOREAN SKINCARE!

I will be focusing on their variety of SHEET MASKS, they offer PLENTY!!!

BUT NOT ONLY that … here is the EXCITING PART! I have also been given the opportunity to create a BOX MADE UP OF SEVEN DIFFERENT SHEET MASKS and here it is!!! It’s MY KEZZIE’S SELF-CARE BOX!

I cannot believe it, and I am truly grateful! You can purchase your own box right here!!!! –https://peachesandcremeshop.com/products/peaches-creme-x-kezia-kezziescorner-s-self-care-box

What the Kezzie’s Self-Care box includes!

Now I will go through the seven sheet masks as I have already tried them out. I also wish to share some information about my skin type, as all our skin types are different. Mine is more of a combination, I have oily skin mostly in my T-Zone, yet I do sometimes have dry skin around the rest of my face. However, I would classify myself as more of the oily type. I also have sensitive skin, which means that I have to be more wary of what products I use, especially since I also am acne-prone especially around the chin area. This means that it is associated more with hormonal acne. If you wish to see/read more on my skincare regime, let me know in the comments down below!!

So now let’s get started with the seven sheet masks that are available in the box!

(P.S. You may find direct links to Peaches and Creme Shop and the face masks throughout the post)

Here you will find some information about each mask and a direct link to where you can buy it from Peaches & Creme Shop!! I hope you enjoy the sheet masks as I have, pop one on and let it take you on a relaxing journey!

#1 TEA TREE RELAXING SKIN RENEWAL MASK

Here’s the first one, and we must start off with a TEA TREE Sheet Mask. I personally love using Tea Tree, I know the benefits such an ingredient has especially when treating acne! This mask helps to relieve irritated and sensitive acne-prone skin due to the access sebum that is produced. It also helps in reducing inflammations and helps to calm the skin. It includes ingredients that help promote balanced skin which helps in preventing breakouts!

I love the after effect of this sheet mask, not only did it have a beautiful scent – I love the smell of Tea Tree – but it also refreshed my skin and created a nice base before applying any makeup. As this is another reason why I loved using these masks, they left my skin feeling smooth and healthy!

#2 YADAH Collagen Mask Pack

This sheet Mask is too cute right? I also was attracted to the word COLLAGEN, and I always worry about ageing skin, therefore, it’s always important to take care of your skin! What was interesting about this mask, is that it included 98% Snail Secretion Filtrate which helps in combatting premature ageing and supports natural cell regeneration, restoration and improves skin’s firmness and elasticity. Therefore, it includes a lot of goodness!!

i LOVED how it left my skin firm and supple, my cheeks looked so plump! It also helped brighten my skin complexion too!

#3 Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack

It is one of the BESTSELLER’S on their website, introducing the Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack. This sheet masks helps soothes and protects irritated and blemished skin! It has 45% Centrella Asiatica which is an ultra-soothing ingredient (also known as Tiger Grass), helps hydrates and nourishes skin. It also helps, as described in the title, relieves redness and irritation. This sheet mask also includes Hyaluronic Acid that helps moisturise your skin!

I personally do not have a lot of redness, maybe sometimes around my nose, yet as you can see my skin after removing the mask was so fair!! I was shocked when I saw my shade of my skin!! I also love how moisturised and soft this sheet mask left my skin!!

#4 MISSHA Tea Tree Sheet Mask

I had to include another Tea Tree mask in this box and so here it is! This is a very thin sheet mask (be gentle when opening it) yet it does a great deal! On the website, it is described that even though it is so thin, its ingredients are able to get to the deepest layer of the skin providing for the care you desire! Also, it being thin, means that it is more eco-friendly! The sheet mask offers a soothing and hydrating effect to your skin, helps control the oil and sebum, therefore, perfect for oily skin and acne prone skin too!

I loved this sheet mask, maybe even more than the first Tea Tree mask I used! It left my skin relaxed, looking healthy with a glow and very soft! It left me with a smile – literally!

#5 Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack

Meet the Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack, its ingredients will help soothe the skin, improve dull skin tone, improve elasticity, maintain skin balance and hydrates skin. It includes a variety of ingredients such as (information brought from website):

  • Snail Secretion Filtrate – for skin protection, nourishment and healing of the skin
  • Bee Venom – soothes the skin and stimulates collagen production
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice – Moisturises skin
  • Niacinamide – Skin tone improvement and nutrition supply
  • Adenosine – improve skin elasticity and reduce appearance of wrinkles
  • Botanical Oil – Moisturises and protects the skin

Therefore, as you can see the ingredients are all essentials to take care of your skin! This is why, I had to put this in especially with the Snail Ingredients that helps heal the skin!

This sheet mask was one of my favourites – I mean they are all my favourites, though this is one of the top! My skin looked and felt super healthy!!! It felt so soft, so firm, so supple and I glowed! I could smile at my skin, and for me that means a lot! My skin journey was never easy, I have acne scars to prove it, yet taking care of it is important and this sheet mask brought out the good for sure!

#6 YADAH Pore Care Mask Pack

I had to select another sheet mask from YADAH! I am always aware of my pores which some are enlarged so I always enjoy going for a pore sheet mask. This helps to tighten and absorb dirt and sebum, this helps in smoothing and softening the skin.

I immediately loved this mask, even when it was still applied on! It had such a calming effect to it, I think it had the most calming effect from them all! I also loved how the material of this sheet mask was different than the others, I think that played a difference! Again, this mask left my skin nice and soft, just the way I like it!

#7 Whoa Whoa Soothing Mask

I had to choose this for the box as well, I mean the name in itself is AMAZING – WHOA WHOA!! It’s a mask from Jumiso and it is made up of honey, ceramides, beta-glucan and primrose oil, all working together to help smoothen and firm the skin.

I love how I ended the journey with this mask, it was a literal Whoa Whoa moment! It left my skin so soft, refreshed and smooth! I loved that refreshed feeling it gave off, and my skin definitely loved it!

Directions for all sheet masks –

  • Use your cleanser, toner and any serums before applying any sheet mask
  • Apply sheet mask and leave on for 15-20 mins (I personally always left it on for 20 mins, you can do something relaxing whilst waiting, such as playing music, reading a book, doing your nails etc …)
  • After the timer has gone off, remove mask and rub in excess serum
  • Finally apply your moisturiser

So there you have it, I tried all 7 SHEET MASKS, ONE A DAY FOR A WHOLE WEEK!!! And my skin LOVED me for it!

What did you think of sheet masks? Do you see any one which caught your eye? Or are they all doing so? Remember you can pick up all these sheet masks from my box, which may be found RIGHT HERE!!!

I am so happy I am able to share this with you all and if you do pick it up, you can tag me and Peaches and Creme on Instagram in your journey!!!!

I hope you enjoyed my post and my exciting announcement, I will be off now!!! I do hope you enjoy the box filled with self-care!!!!

Again, I wish to say a BIG THANK YOU to Peaches and Creme for providing me with such an amazing opportunity, I am truly grateful!

Love Kezia

Femme Luxe Try on Haul

Hi everyone,

It’s a new year, 2021, and one of my goals is that I will blog once a week! However, I do not wish to set an upload date for now, as I do not wish to put pressure on myself. I already have quite a bit on my plate, and I do not wish the excitement of writing to get lost! Anyways, I wish you all the best for the new year, and I a big good luck on all your goals that you all have set!!

So, what better way to return to blogging than, by writing about a Femme Luxe Try on Haul! You all need a little update in your closets and you can do so by visiting Femme Luxe, they always have new items up on their website!!

Here is what I picked up on my last Femme Luxe Haul!

Black Tie Front Organza Mesh Sleeve Crop Top

Oh this is the perfect top for a future date night !! I know that the pandemic is still very much with us all, and my heart goes out to you all!! Yet, I do believe that it is still important to dress up even if the date night is just ordering food at home and having a Netflix date!

Navy Check Print Oversized Button Up Pocket Shacket

Oh my goodness, I must say that you guys need to add a SHACKET to your closets! And I think that this one is perfect for you all!! I love its style, pattern, material and size too – it’s a little baggy which is just the right fit for such a stylish shacket!!

Pair it with some leggings, or over a hoodie and joggers and you will look cool and trendy – wow I am sorry if those words I have used are so old school!

White & Black Marble Print Cuffed Joggers

These joggers are the most aesthetic pair of joggers I own! I only just found my love for joggers, I do not know where they have been in my life! I used to think that joggers do not look good, they are so baggy and they are like pjs! But no they don’t, not only are they cosy but they can also be styled in a way to look so instagram worthy!! And I do believe that these trousers are the perfect answer for all that!! Get yours now from FEMME LUXE!

What do you think of the items I mentioned? Have you ever shopped from Femme Luxe? What is your current closet holy grail? I would love to hear your answers, write them down below!!!

I hope you all have a good rest of week and I wish you a happy weekend!

First one being is WEEK 1 of VLOGMAS 2020. I like uploaded a weekly vlog, and this did not change for vlogmas! i cannot vlog a day and upload a vlog a day, I think I would over stress myself with everything that I am juggling right now, so a weekly vlog will do. And FUN FACT I have actually been uploading weekly vlogs all week this year!!! It’s the first time I have managed and it was a new year’s resolution so so far I am acing it!!

So yes here is the first weekly vlog dedicated to VLOGMAS this year, I hope you enjoy watching –

And basically that’s all for today, I do hope tomorrow I will be able to sit down and full on write one of the blogmas post ideas I have on my long list on my sticky note app on my laptop! Apologies for the very long sentence!!

Good night everyone and stay safe!

Blogmas Day 7 – Gift Ideas for Her

Hi everyone,

Yes you might be getting two blog posts today, but I finished my online class, ate, washed up and here I am back on the sofa, facing the christmas tree and its beauty; and writing up this post. Tomorrow we also have a public holiday here in Malta, so I can rest up a little. But also will be doing some christmas shopping, still have some people to cheer!

I also uploaded a NEW GIVEAWAY on my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM, check them out now!

And yes today’s post is going to be all about some GIFT IDEAS FOR HER! So if you have a girlfriend to buy a gift for, or your bestie, or a secret santa, or your sister or cousin, then this might be the post for you. I am also going to base this post on what you can get locally from Malta 🙂

#1 Lucy Makeup Store

Ok so Lucy really have gone all out and have really saved us!! They have so many gift ideas from stockings full of goodies (however, that’s sold out right now but they can be restocking it for a second time) but they have the empty ones still which you can fill yourselves or Christmas Crackers!!! They also have a page which is literal guide with a list from gift ideas under 10 euros, to gift ideas for kids to gift set ideas! I encourage you to check these pages out, they are a big help for sure!!

#2 GLOV STARDUST SET!

GLOV are the brand that brought us the iconic moon pads that remove your makeup so easily and gently revealing clean and soft skin. They made my life simpler for sure. And they introduced the cutest gift set for this year! It’s called the Stardust set, where you will get a cute makeup bag, moon pads, a bag that you can keep your moon pads in and its a laundry bag as well – as you simply put the moon pads in the bag, which you then put in the washing machine, and voila your moon pads are nice and clean!!

The Glitter Lab collection has a variety of sets with body care items, they come in the cutest pack, each box comes with a cute motivational quote which the person can cut up and keep. There’s a lot of sets to choose from but I am sure you will find one for your special loved one! Contact Pupa Milano for info on where your nearest outlet of Pupa Milano is so you can get this cute set either for yourself – as its important to treat yourself- or as a gift!

#4 JADE WITH LOVE

Jade is a very talented person and if you didn’t know she launched her own brand and has created the cutest of scrunchies! Today she just released her Christmas Collection which includes of two scrunchies and 4 hairbands! I think this would be a cute idea for a gift and they also come in a bag as well.

Another great place you can visit is WOOD AND TASSEL, Martina who is the owner of the brand creates the most intricate and cutest pieces of jewellery, she honestly impresses me every time.

Blogmas Day 6 – My Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,

I recently arrived back from work as I am writing this on Monday, however, this was scheduled for Day 6! And so I am posting it now!

Today’s post is going to be photos from this year’s Christmas Tree. We bought it from Big Mat and it’s really pretty, though I wish it was slightly bigger! Our decor is quite minimalistic especially this year. Sometimes this time of year is harder for some and I am aware that this year due to the pandemic it is harder for all. Yet for my family besides all this, something else is making it harder to celebrate so the decoration was kept at the minimal.

Personally, I love the idea of a Christmas tree as it gives me support when I am on the sofa near it watching a movie or reading a book. There is something about it that creates joy and comfort. Do any of you feel the same way?

And what about your Christmas Tree, what does it look like?

That’s all for today as I have to prepare for my online class tonight and hopefully I will come back and write Blogmas Day 7 too! I kind of am enjoying this writing on my blog especially now that I get to write next to my lit Christmas Tree.

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 5 – Christmas Lights

Hi everyone,

Yep, I am writing Day 5 a day later, and I might need to upload posts this way yet if I do have time on the day I will post it then. Basically let’s do this day by day! How was your Saturday? Would love to know how yours went!

My day 5 included a Gestalt Workshop – I am doing a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy, I am currently on Year 2 and it is a part time course so yes it will take till 2023 … even writing it down creates a form of anxiety though I am glad I still have a long time to go because I still have a lot to learn and more grounding to be made before I can see myself ready for the final exam which is still a little daunting. But we will get there, I know so and it will be okay!

So yeah it mostly included a day with Gestalt but it was very interesting and even though I felt tired at first, I was left with some form of energy as I found the content to be very insightful. And after I finished I actually put on some makeup, got into a cute outfit and told Luke, let’s go take some photos with some Christmas Lights I saw popped up close to home. And so we went and took some photos!

And then after we got some Mcdonalds, and I tried the new double quarter pounder, have you guys tried it out?

That’s basically it for today!! I am so excited as I will be sharing my Vlogmas week 1 on Day 6 so stay tuned and be sure to be subscribed to my Youtube Channel!!

Until next time, I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 4 – I heart revolution X Disney!

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care! Yesterday I did not upload but am uploading it a day late. I had a long day, I am finding myself to being tired and exhausted. I don’t know if it’s covid fatigue too besides everything that I am experiencing, we all have our stories. However, I still wished to write a Blogmas Day 4!

It will be short and sweet and I hope that tonight I will upload a new one.

All I wanted to share yesterday was how I uploaded a new video on my Youtube Channel about one of the storybooks from I heart Revolution X Disney collaboration! They created three storybooks – one of cinderella, beauty and the beast and the princess and the frog. These sets would be a cute gift idea for someone who loves all things Disney. And if you are from Malta like me, you can order from Lucy Makeup Store, as they just stocked them this week!

For today’s video I focused on The Beauty and the Beast Storybook and I created a very natural look but I do wish to go back and play with it using more colourful shades as it has a beautiful colour story!!

So here is the video, hope you enjoy watching!!

What did you think of the storybook and the makeup look?

That’s all for now, I hope to see you all later with a new Blogmas Post!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 3 – My Christmas Wishlist

Hi everyone,

It’s that time of year again where I get to share my Christmas Wishlist. I can imagine we all have one and one which builds up and gets changed throughout the year. So grab a hot chocolate and sit by the fire, because here in Malta it is getting awfully chilly I must say – and enjoy reading today’s Blogmas Post!!

This will be short and sweet as that is the way I like it!

#1 – Canon Camera – one that Autofocuses whilst filming!

It’s my dream to own a camera that whilst I am filming a video it just autofocuses on its own. The one I currently have which is the Canon 1200D SLR doesn’t autofocus. I have to press and hold the photo button for it to focus and then it does not readjust whilst filming. Sometimes I film out of focus, however, after getting used to it a little it happens rarely now. Yet still it would make my life easier, and maybe a camera that has a view finder that rotates so I can see what I am filming rather than stopping what I am filming, checking the footage on the camera and restarting again as my head is cut out! So yes, this would be a dream come true, maybe I should start saving for one!

#2 PLT CREAM MAXI TEDDY COAT!!

Oh my goodness, I would love one of these! I love teddy jackets, but a coat one I do not have! Plus coats I only have three, and two of them are a little old!! So I am in need of a coat update!! I have fallen in love with Pretty Little Thing this year, it has definitely become one of my holy grails!! So it would be from that website for sure, and these are the ones I have an eye on and they are added to my wishlist there as PLT are constantly restocking!!

#3 CHUNKY TRAINERS

This year I saw the rise of FILA SNEAKERS!! And well I have started loving them – although I will always be a VANS FAN!!! These ones again on PLT I have had my eye for a while but I always end up removing from my cart! So they just remain in my wishlist yet they are too cute and I can see myself pairing them with a hoodie, jeans and them!!

#4 NEW KNITWEAR

I would love to update my closet with some new knitwear!! I bought a cute top earlier this january from Primark – if I would have known it would be my only trip this year would have gotten five more – but I love it and it’s so comfy!! This one from PLT it’s so cute! I swear this is not a PLT Sponsored Post!

#5 RED FLANNEL PJS

I know haha I should have gotten a set before December but I could not find or I did not look hard enough! But owning a set of red glannel pjs would be awesome!! Such a christmas thing to wear and ahh maybe next year would be waking up on Christmas day with red flannel pjs – its the simple things!!

#6 A CUTE CHRISTMAS MUG!

Ok this is the final item on my list!!! Something else I do not own is a CHRISTMAS MUG!! I think having one is essential!! I will definitely have a set in the future!!

That’s my Christmas Wishlist for 2020!! What is yours? Comment down below, love reading your comments!!!

For today, that will be all!! I hope you all have a great rest of day !! Tomorrow is Friday, so the weekend is approaching!! I hope you take care and stay safe wherever you may be!!!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 2 – First Christmas Giveaway

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? How have you been settling into a new month?

Today was a busy day and then I got a little confused with some changes in my day. I am a planner, so when things change from my plan of the day, it takes me some time to adjust and adapt to these changes happening. Something I might need to work on … next year though, far too tired for this year!

Anyways, as I said today’s post would slightly be more Christmas-sy!! And so here it is!!

Each year during the month of December I am so thankful as I get to collaborate with some of my favourite brands of the year and together we produce some lovely giveaways for you all! I just wish to give back something to a community who supports me everyday! I am so grateful for the corner I have built and I feel blessed each day! Thank you so much for supporting me on whichever social media platform, so here is something small to thank you!

The first giveaway is with a shop called Beauty Cosmos which is found in Fgura, I love working with this store! If you want to participate either visit my INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK PAGE for more info and of course to participate!!!

And stay tuned on my social media and youtube channel for more surprises to come!!

For today, that will be all. I am exhausted and I think I am going to get cosy and watch a tv show, might watch an episode of For Life. Who watches that show? Absolutely love it and cannot wait to watch this episode as a big shift was made in the show!!

I hope you all had a good day, I wish you all to take care, stay safe and have a good rest of day, or a good night!

Love Kezia
