My thoughts on the ‘Moodmask™ Get Dewy with it’ from Patchology

Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time since I posted over here on my blog and it’s about time I start again. It’s 2019 which means it is a NEW YEAR, so I wish you all the best for the New Year. I have decided that I will be posting once a week right here on my blog so stay tuned for weekly posts every Friday!!

Today’s post is on a Moodmask that I tried from Patchology. The brand is a skincare brand and revolves around creating products which, as I quote them, “will not only fulfil their promise, but fit your life.” They also use the quote – “beauty at the speed of you” and it’s the inspiration for everything they do.

To all my Maltese readers, the website does ship internationally including our home land!!

I would like to thank Push Pr for these products and for introducing me to the brand! Patchology have created this bundle of three sheet masks which are all Moodmasks and are entitled as – Get Dewy With It, Just Let It Glow and The Good Fight. These masks are set to help your skin, by helping in removing any impurities. You can get these masks as a bundle or separately right here – https://www.patchology.com/moodmask-sheet-masks#

The masks are all sheet masks which in my opinion are quite convenient, as they are easy to apply and remove! The one I decided on using was the Get Dewy With It. And so in this post I will be talking to you about that one. However, if you wish to see a review on the other two masks, then let me know and I will do a separate blog post on them!

The Get Dewy With It sheet mask revolves around helping your skin be hydrated as “Hydrated skin is healthy skin.” What I liked most about this mask is it includes Hyaluronic Acid which helps your skin stay hydrated and I love my hyaluronic acid!! It also includes Rose of Jericho, Hijiki Algae, Honey and Prickly Pear to further make sure that you will get dewy skin!

Since this is a sheet mask, in my opinion as I said it’s easier to use but also faster to apply. Simply unfold the mask and place it onto your face making sure you get the best fit possible. And then you can go lay on your bed and leave it on for 10 minutes. I left it on surely for more than that as I loved the cooling sensation that it was leaving me with. When you want to remove the mask, simply remove it gently and then rub in the excess serum that you are left with into your skin. There is no need to rinse it off, just let your skin absorb all the goodness that this mask has!

After I applied the mask, I loved how my skin looked, it was glowing and it was dewy as it said. And even after 3 days my skin still felt hydrated. I personally do not drink enough water so this helped a lot. But I should start drinking more water everyday. I would recommend this mask as it has great results but also it’s so easy to use and to apply and to remove. So it would be a good mask for one of your pamper days and it’s only $5!!

Have you ever tried things from Patchology? Let me know!!

Thank you so much for reading, really appreciate it !!!

Love Kezia

The Charcoal Magnet Mask from Biovène Barcelona

Hi everyone,

How are you doing all? I hope you are all having a fantastic week! And I wish you all an amazing weekend!!

Today’s blog post is all about the Charcoal Magnet Mask from Biovène Barcelona. I reviewed this mask on my Youtube Channel and you can see me apply the mask and remove it!

A little bit about the Mask …

IMG_5578

It is a natural, anti-aging and rejuvenating mask that consists of iron magnetic particles, activated charcoal and a mixture of oils for a smooth, firm and radiant complexion.

The mask comes with a spatula to apply the face mask and not have to mess up your hands! And it comes with a magnet and magnet wraps to remove the mask.

It is 99% natural and suitable for all skin types!

Check out Biovène Barcelona’s website to get more information on the mask by CLICKING HERE and it retails for €25!

What should it do? 

IMG_5582

It helps in making the skin look radiant, leaving it tighter and more lifted.

It helps in giving the skin a toned and youthful look and helps remove impurities.

It also helps the skin become more purified, detoxified and gives vitality to the skin!

It helps in leaving the skin softer, re-energized and revitalized while also smoothing it out!

Finally it also gives out a more glowing complexion, and helps moisturise and hydrate the skin!

How to use …

IMG_5581

After cleansing your face, use the spatula to apply a thin layer of the mask on your face avoiding the eye are and leave it on for 10 minutes.

Hold the magnet and wrap the sheets around the magnet. Then run it near the surface of the skin but do not press the magnet onto the skin. The magnet is powerful enough to grab the mask from the skin without being pressed on the skin!

After the mask is completely removed, rub out the remainder to infuse the ingredients into the skin and then apply your moisturiser.

My thoughts … 

IMG_5501

Ok so I was so excited to try out this mask because of its concept .. I mean a magnet that removes a mask is fun in itself!!

The application was not so bad, however, the spatula sometimes was removing pieces of the mask that I already had applied on my skin. Though applying this with your fingers is way more messier, therefore, better to just use the spatula.

I noticed that the removal of it gets better with every application. The first time I used the sheets with the magnet to remove the mask, things got messy. But then I found that whenever I had to move a sheet which had already pieces of mask that had been removed, I throw those bits away then attach it to the magnet again. Because when mask pieces get stuck on the magnet, it is a little bit of a hassle to remove!

Overall, I loved how this mask left my face! It was softer, smoother and it was glowing! My pores decreased in appearance and the mask did not irritate my skin whatsoever!

IMG_5579
These are some other masks that Biovène so kindly sent me! I will be trying them out soon!! 

I would like to thank Biovène Barcelona once again for collaborating with me and giving me this lovely opportunity to try out their mask!!

Thank YOU guys for reading and for supporting my blog, and I will see you all in my next blog post!!

Love Kezia

Kino Cosmetics – Black Peel Off Mask – Review

Hi lovelies, 

How are we all doing? I hope you’re all having an amazing week! Today’s blog post is all about skincare – specifically a Black Peel Off Mask! You can try it out by visiting https://kinocosmetics.com/ and they also have a FB page too if you require more information – click here.

I have tried other peel off masks but this one is slightly different!

37240670_10214895159505156_6986023177507831808_n

This is because the application needs a bit of preparation. Before applying it, you need to warm the tube for 3 minutes. And then squeeze it out of the tube and apply. Different no? I like leaving it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off. I don’t find that I could peel it off.

This mask includes black active charcoal which helps with providing a deep cleanse to your skin. It helps absorb excess sebum and helps with fighting off formation of blackheads. It helps in providing radiant skin and a refined complexion.

My thoughts … 

Personally I like how the mask leaves my skin feeling fresh, soft and gently cleanses out the impurities. My skin does look clearer and I have been using it for a month, applying it once a week.

However, I do not like how you cannot just go ahead and use it without warming the tube. And I find that you have to warm it for more than 3 minutes to get out more product, and you cannot really apply enough so that when it dries you can peel it off.

BUT I like how it isn’t difficult to remove, I simply rinse it off and dry my face. Just be careful when applying it as it may get messy!

Have you tried out this mask? If not, what do you think of it? Let me know in the comments down below!

Again, I would like to thank Kino Cosmetics Malta for collaborating with me!

I really hope you enjoyed reading my blog post!! Thank you for all your support!

Love Kezia

The Incredible Face Mask by MayBeauty UK -Review

Hi lovelies, 

I hope you are all doing well. This week I wrote a total of 3 blog posts and next week I am planning to write 2 more! So I hope you are enjoying my blog’s content!

Today’s blog post is all about ‘The Incredible Face Mask” by Maybeauty UK. I received some samples of this mask from MayBeauty and I have tried it out twice so it’s time for me write up a review about what I thought about this mask. Thank you so much to MayBeauty for sending out these samples!

IMG_4615.jpg

You can order it right here – https://maybeauty.co.uk/incredible-face-mask/ – the website offers free shipping worldwide!

Also, I have a discount code which is keziamask30 – were you can get 30% off your order!! 

What is The Incredible Face Mask? 

IMG_4619

The mask claims to clean the skin and remove impurities and dead skin cells that are stuck in your pores. The mask is absorbed by the skin, leaving a nice and smooth surface once the mask is peeled off.

Additionally, the mask removes Blackheads, prevents Acne and  removes excess oil and sebum. 

Once I had read this I was intrigued and excited to try it out.

How to use it … 

IMG_4629

Apply the mask on a dry face. I applied it with this brush that came with the samples. I found that this brush helped me apply this mask quite quickly! Be sure to NOT apply the mask on your eyebrows because it can remove facial hair!

Allow the mask to dry for 30-45 minutes – I love leaving it for the whole 45 minutes and love watching a tv show in the mean time. It is very relaxing.

IMG_4631

Once it has dried up then you can start peeling the mask off your skin. You should notice that attached to the removed mask, their should be blackheads and dead skin cells on it. That will show that it did a good job!

Once you remove the mask, make sure to rinse it with some warm water and you should feel your skin soft and clean.

My thoughts … 

So like I said I tried the mask twice and the application process with the brush I got helped me apply it quickly. However, I dropped a little in the sink, and it can get kind of messy, so be careful.

IMG_4636

I like leaving it on for the entire 45 minutes and then I start peeling it away. I love peel off masks because they are not messy to wash off unlike clay masks. My first experience with this mask was kind of a little bit painful because when I removed the mask around my cheek area I did cringe a little because pulling it off was harsh and left my skin a little bit red but no other irritation. But the second time I applied it, it hurt less because I evened out the application across my face to have an equal layer all around.

IMG_4637

Looking at the mask peeled off, I did find blackheads and dead skin cells attached to the mask so I knew it worked. My skin felt soft and clean and so clear after applying it for the second time! I will definitely be using the other samples I received because I loved the result!

How my skin looked after removing off the mask!

You could visit MayBeauty’s website to see some other products that they offer. There is a Face Gel, Pore Mask and even some hair products!! 

And that’s today’s blog post! Are you intrigued to try this mask out? Let me know in the comments down below!

Again, I would like to thank MayBeauty for the samples!

Before I end this post, I would like to add to those makeup lovers out there who are looking for Vanity Cases to store their makeup, I recommend Makeup Fix, they have a variety of vanity cases to choose from, that come in all shapes, colours and sizes! Check them out right here – https://makeupfix.co.uk/vanity-cases/

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

#1 Anatomicals Face the World Masks (€2/£1 each)

IMG_4454

I love the titles of these masks!

I have only tried out the anti-stress face mask because I was having a stressful day so I needed some de-stressing pamper time! I love the smell you find once you open the packet – so chocolate-y – and there is a lot of product in the packet! In fact I saved the packet for another use as I did not use all the mask at one go!

IMG_4456

I love how it applied on the skin, felt so refreshing and cool! Left it on for 15 minutes and it dried up really quickly I must say, then gently rinsed it off. It came off easily without making a big mess and my skin felt smooth and soft! I loved it and cannot wait to try out the other two!!

#2 Body Lotion (I could not find it online at the time being but keep an eye out for this product!)

IMG_4448

I love the name of this lotion!! Smoother butts love coconuts – Coconut and Mango Body Lotion!! I love the smell of this body lotion reminds me of SUMMER!! Loved using it after having washed my body! It made my skin feel super soft and made my skin smell so good!! Love using it and it has become a staple in my shower routine!

#3 Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm (€3.50/£2.49)

IMG_4447

This Lip Balm has saved my very dry and very chapped lips!! Here in Scotland it gets so cold and my lips have become so dry! In Malta, I never had this kind of problem so this product came at a perfect time!! I LOVE …. BUT LOVE the smell of this lip balm it reminds me of hazelnuts! It comes out just like a gloss so your lips not only feel less dry but are glossy too!! WIN WIN!!

#4 Anatomicals Bichotin Charcoal Toothbrush (Could not find it online!)

IMG_4444

This is the cutest toothbrush I have ever owned! It’s yellow and pink and comes with a cute pink case too! I loved using it, it helps me get into those annoying spots which are hard to reach whilst brushing my teeth! Really loved this toothbrush – too cute!!

And those were all the products I tried out from Anatomicals! Again, I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products!!

IMG_4333

Which skin type is it good for?

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination

My thoughts – 

IMG_4334

I find the concept so fascinating, that these three sheets can be washed away in soap and the soap just remove your makeup so easily. In the video, you saw what heavy eye makeup I had. But it went off in seconds! I have used this a couple of times now, and may I remind you that each pack comes with 50 sheets! It also is so compact and so easy to carry around!! Brilliant for packing on holiday because it isn’t a liquid!!

IMG_4322

But from all the times I used it, I love how soft it left my skin and it did not cause any irritation on my skin. I have combination and sensitive skin, just in case you are wondering! So yeah it did wash off my makeup and left it all clean and soft! And one final thing about the product is the packaging it comes in! It is so sleek and high quality, I love it!!

Sand and Sky – Pink Clay Mask – Honest Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you all are doing great and having a lovely day!! Today’s blog post is all about a Face Mask that I am sure some of you guys have seen on social media!

IMG_3176

This mask is the Purifying Pink Clay Mask from Sand and Sky. I have already mentioned this mask on my blog as I genuinely love it. But this time I collaborated with Sand and Sky and I thank them so much for such an opportunity!!

What the face mask claims to do …

  • It detoxifies and brightens up the skin
  • It is made up of 100% natural Australian Ingredients and Pink Clay. It is Paraben free and other nasty ingredients.
  • It gives your skin a lovely glow and helps the skin regenerate. It also removes toxins and helps clear skin and shrink pores.

My thoughts on the mask … 

IMG_3146

When simply applying it onto my face I feel my skin feeling cool and then after it feels a little bit warm but dies down quickly. I apply it after I cleanse my face.

I leave it on for ten minutes and then wipe it off using a damp face cloth (dampened with warm water).

IMG_3163

After taking off the mask, I notice my skin to be brighter and freshened up. I also feel my skin ever so smooth. What I love most about the face mask is the fact that it decreases the appearance of my pores. It also cleans my skin and helps rid of red spots.

IMG_3141

For those of you who have acne or had acne and have acne scars, I think it is a face mask worth trying. I love how my skin feels after using this mask and like how it helped my cleanse my skin.

Here is a photo of my skin from before and after using the mask.  

proper

To view more information on the mask you can visit their website by clicking here.

Also a side note: for dry skin it is best to use just 1 to 2 times per week and for oily/combination skin best to use 2 to 3 times per week. Also, the website offers free worldwide shipping!

Have you guys ever tried out this face mask? Comment down below! Even if you haven’t, I would love to hear your thoughts on the mask. 

I really hope you enjoyed reading! Thank you so much for doing so!!

Love Kezia
