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

My thoughts on Korres’ Wild Rose & Super Vitamin C Skincare Products

Hi everyone, 

I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I miss writing on here. However, I have been regularly posting on my other social media sites such as my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. So if you miss me and do not know that I have these channels too, would love it if you could support me there too!

 

Today’s blog post is about some products I received while attending a launch hosted by Korres Malta. It was the cutest decorated launch I had ever attended, hosted at VIlla Arrigo. I met some other talented people and we all enjoyed a lovely presentation by Stephanie Briffa who is the brand manager of Korres here in Malta. Korres have recently landed in Malta and can be found at Remedies pharmacies in Ta’ Xbiex, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Sliema (OPENING SOON) and Siggiewi. As well as from Central Pharmacy in Rabat and St.Andrew’s Pharmacy in Swieqi.

We were given a back story of the brand and how it came to be developed and then we were introduced to the new collection – the Wild Rose Collection. Wild Rose oil offers antioxidant, moisturising and softening properties. And in combination with Vitamin C, helps repair fine lines and pigmentation while improving the overall texture of the skin.

IMG_6850

I am so grateful to have been invited to an event and then to also receive three of there products from their Wild Rose Collection! And since the event I have adopted these products into my skincare routine and have so far used them for 2 weeks. And now here I am writing a blog post on how I felt these products have helped my skin since I started using them!

I love the packaging on all three products, it is just so beautiful, luxurious and I like how they look in my bathroom.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Day Cream – Normal/Combination skin – 

IMG_6854

First off I would like to say that besides this cream product coming out for normal to combination skin, they also have one for oily skin or dry skin. I LOVE the smell of this day cream, it just smells so lovely and is nice to use early in the morning as you are about to start off your day.

IMG_6853

I apply this after having moisturised and I only use it in the morning (Apparently this is a moisturiser in itself so yeah you don’t have to moisturise before using this product). It offers 24 hour hydration, brightening and first wrinkles. It has a water cream texture that blends nicely into the skin.  This cream besides containing Wild Rose oil, also has Vitamin C, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid which helps improve the signs of premature ageing and evens skin tone to reveal smoother, younger looking skin.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial – 

IMG_6851

I use this everyday at night and again after having moisturised. It’s a lightweight cream that offers hydration and helps even skin tone with its corn powder that helps to absorb oiliness which results into a nice matte finish.

IMG_6852

This is a sleeping face mask sort of that helps your skin be brighter by morning.

15% Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Bi-phase Booster – 

IMG_6857

I use this everyday in the morning and evening before moisturising and I apply 3 drops – 2 on either cheek and one on my forehead and rub it in. It is an intensive brightening and anti-fatigue skin care product that has a potent 15% Super Vitamin C brightening bi-phase booster to improve the appearance of first wrinkles, dark spots and dullness. The Vitamin C and Wild Rose oil helps in reducing signs of premature ageing and fatigue to reveal spotless skin.

Research showed that 94% of women who used this for 7 days claimed that they noticed improved skin’s overall appearance.

My thoughts ….

So I have combination skin and sensitive skin. These products did not cause any breakouts nor were there any bad reactions from having used them.  As I wrote, I have only used them for 2 weeks and have not missed a day where I didn’t use all three of them.

IMG_6866
Not Edited 

I do find my skin to have gotten softer and brighter and in the mornings after having added these products in my routine. I noticed how the Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, resulted to waking up with less dull looking skin. I think the most noticeable thing I also have noted is how smooth my skin always feels now which is a super positive from me.

IMG_6858
Not Edited

As you can see when taking the photo i had quite a large spot and this is completely due to the fact that it’s my time of the month next week and I always notice a spot or two as that time approaches! But other than that annoying spot, I haven’t had much breakouts which I am super happy about! I hope that as I continue using it, it only will keep my skin smooth and soft. The issue with my skin that annoys me the most are my acne scars but these products are not associated with helping them and am still on the hunt with something to help decrease my scars! (If you know of anything please do leave me your replies in the comments down below!!)

So overall, do I recommend these products? If you are looking for products to help your skin be healthier, smoother, softer and brighter then yes I recommend them! For me, these were the results I noticed!

Have you guys ever tried out skincare products from Korres? Let me know in the comments down below!!

I hope you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for reading and for your support!!

Until next time, 

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!

The Antiox Facial Plan – Freshly Cosmetics – Review

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well. I am hoping to come out with 3 NEW blog posts this week! So stay tuned and make sure to be following my blog to get notification emails of when I post a new blog post!!

IMG_4904

Today’s blog post is all about a brand called Freshly Cosmetics. They recently released their brand in the UK and they have lots of skincare goodies for you to try out! I got the opportunity to test out something from them and I received the Antiox Facial Plan. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics so much!

I just would like to say that I love the packaging from how it was sent to the packaging of the products themselves!

IMG_4909

The Antiox Facial Plan is made up of a –

  1. Fresh Green Micellar Water
  2. Purifying Facial Toner
  3. Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
  4. Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser

I have been trying it out for 2 weeks and am happy with the results. Though, I have some good and bad notes to write about this plan.

What I like about it is that it is a 4 simple step plan which basically cleans, purifies and moisturises your skin. The products are made in a way which are simply and easy to use.

IMG_4896

#1 You first would start with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and I simply get a round cotton pad and apply it all over my face. You could also spray it throughout the day on your face, to freshen up your skin!

This product helps hydrate your skin and interestingly contains an anti-stress extract, so for those going through their final exams at uni maybe this would help you and your skin relax!

The thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s just such a strong scent and to smell it in the morning, it’s just too much.

IMG_4897

#2 Then you would use the Purifying Facial Tonic which again has a strong scent but not as much as the Micellar Water. Again I apply this with a cotton pad. I guess yes you would need some cotton pads for this Antiox Facial Plan!

This product helps hydrate, refresh and get rid of dust accumulated through the air. It simply helps remove the impurities and honestly I do feel my skin to be cleaner and softer after using this product. However, I noticed that it did make my skin feel a little sticky but I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.

IMG_4899

#3 The next product is something I never incorporated in my skincare routine and it is a Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I loved applying this, reminded me of being in Science class and having a pipette! Just love that word!

I loved this, it brightened my skin and it gave it a glow! This serum helps to reduce, repair and prevent signs of ageing.

IMG_4898

#4 The final product that you would use in this plan is the Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser. This can be easily applied evenly on your skin and you have to wait a minute or two so that the serum sets and absorbs before applying the moisturiser.

This moisturiser is a hydrating face cream that has antioxidants which helps hydrate your skin and again reduces skin stress.

This plan helps freshen, purifies and balances skin’s pH with lime, burdock and camomile extracts. Believe me the lime is noticeable. It helps with hydration and also includes vegan hyaluronic acid. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

My final thoughts … 

IMG_4905

I noticed my skin to be brighter, fresher and had a lovely natural glow to it. However, I also noticed that as I was using these products both in the morning and in the evening, it was making my skin red. Therefore, I might have been having a reaction and so I only completed this plan for two weeks because it was too heavy for my skin and I have combination and sensitive skin.

I am now just using the serum as that was my favourite product from the entire plan and I am using it with my usual everyday skin routine.

So that was my review on this Antiox Facial Plan from Freshly Cosmetics. You can visit their website where they have more plans and information. If you subscribe you can get 15% off your order!

They post to a lot of different countries. To my fellow Maltese followers, unfortunately they do not ship to Malta however, they do ship to England so you could use Send On or other ship it to services!

Again, I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics for these lovely products!

What do you think of the products? Are you interested in trying out such a plan? Have you ever tried out any product from this brand? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much for reading!!

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!!

Have you ever tried out any of these products? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Thank you so much for reading!! Join me again on Friday for another Blog Post!

  2. Moisten with water.

  4. Gently apply the foam to your face in circular motions.
  5. Rinse with water and pat skin dry.

IMG_4333

Which skin type is it good for?

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry
  • Sensitive

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!!

IMG_4325

Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Scrub + Cleanser + Mask – Review

Hi everyone, 

I did write in my last blog post that I will be posting an extra blog post this week!! And here is that post!!

I was so excited to work again with Vichy Malta. If you haven’t read my previous 2 posts testing out two other products from Vichy, then you can check them out right here –

Today’s product that I will be sharing with you all, is the Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask! Therefore, this product does all 3 things – Perfect no? 

IMG_2311

The Normaderm 3 in 1 Scrub + Cleaner + Mask claims to help the skin, it provides gentle skincare routine and relieves the skin from any oils and imperfections that we might have going on. The product has been tested on sensitive skin and it is a cleanser, scrub and mask with soothing properties. The Normaderm 3-in-1 has a clay like formula. It consists of purifying, anti-bacterial and keratolytic actions to keep imperfections at bay and leave your skin perfectly matte.

The Normaderm 3 IN 1 formula makes you choose how you want to use it.

Ways of using this product – 

IMG_2314

So you can use it as a mask and apply it once/twice a week depending on your skin type. Leave it on for 5 minutes then gently rinse away with warm water. Gently use circular motions to get that exfoliation going and gently exfoliate your skin.

Or you can use it as a cleanser/exfoliator and apply it once/twice a week, onto a damp face and rinsing it off with warm water. Additionally, as a scrub it helps with unclogging pores and gives the skin a smooth finish.

However you use Normaderm 3-in-1, be it as a mask/scrub/cleanser – it should only be used once/twice a week.

What do each of the formulas claim to do in the Normarderm 3-in-1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask? 
1) Exfoliator: helps unclog pores. Cleans away excess oil and trapped dirt that lead to acne breakouts, prevents pimples and blackheads
2) Cleansing Cream: reduces sebum and impurities. Kills acne-causing bacteria without irritating the skin
3) Mask: Mattifies skin and clarifies complexion.

My thoughts … 

IMG_2310

So I was really excited from reading about the Normaderm 3-in-1 and seeing what it claims to do. I loved using it as a mask. I kept it on for a little over 5 minutes because it was so refreshing on my skin! Once I rinsed it off I saw my complexion had no shine whatsoever and the mask brightened my skin making it feel so fresh. It also decreased the effect of pores too!

IMG_2307

One week I also tried it as an exfoliator and I think I will use it more as an exfoliator to unclog my pores as right now this is what my skin is struggling with the most. However, if you are looking to feel relaxed and refreshed I highly recommend that you use it as a mask.

IMG_2328
After rinsing it off, my face looks clearer. Here is my natural skin look. 

I like the concept this product brings with it. The fact that this product can replace 3 of your skincare products is amazing!! It has definitely joined my skincare routine!

IMG_2312
It joined the Vichy Family !!

Have you guys ever tried this product or any other Vichy product? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much Vichy Malta. Remember that if you are from Malta and would like to purchase this product, you will find Vichy being sold at various local pharmacies. The Normaderm 3-n-1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask costs €12.90.

Thank you so much for reading everyone, have a lovely week!

Anew Essential Youth Maximising Sheet Mask – AVON – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are all of you doing? 

So do you ever have those days when you just feel so tired, stressed and just need a break? Well recently, those days were more often than others and I needed something to keep me relaxed for a bit.

A few days ago Avon Malta kindly sent me this new Anew Essential Youth Maximising Sheet Mask and I finally found the time and the moment to try it out. You can order from Avon through their website – www.avon.com.mt or ask for their catalogue which they can send through their local representative. They could also provide a soft copy of the catalogue and they may send it through Facebook or Whatsapp or by email.  To order the products simply either get in touch with your Local AVON Representative or go directly to them.

So let’s get into the review!

Here is a photo of how my skin looked beforedull and in need of a good face treatment!

How I applied it –

It came in this cute golden packet which I cut open thanks to the easy instructions. Before applying it, I cleansed my face and prepped my skin for the face mask. I then gently took out the mask and you will notice a tip on the edge of where your forehead is. That marks the spot of the left side of your face. I gently applied it first on my forehead then past my nose, and then I pulled it gently down onto my neck.

My only concern was that when I applied it, it irritated my eyes a little, however this could be because of my poor application skills of sheet masks. But I rinsed my eyes with a little water and all was well.

I then left the mask on for more than 20 minutes even though on the packet it says to leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. But whilst I had the face mask on, it was so relaxing to be laying down on my bed with the mask on, I was feeling as though my skin was being refreshed. It was just a serene and calm moment.

What it entails to do –

This is an anti-ageing mask and it is formulated to help repair cells and firm the look of skin. It should help the skin look more radiant, plump and smooths texture.

It is formulated with phytol to help increase cellular metabolism and renewal, and to help improve skin’s barrier protection. [AVON Malta]

After continuous use it should start to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and makes skin look firmer.

 My thoughts – 

Here is how my skin looked after

As you can see it just looks more awake, refreshed, it felt so soft and smooth and I liked the natural glow that I was left with. Overall, I loved the end result and I stayed with the refreshed feeling on my skin throughout the day.

It was also a motivational factor to keep me going throughout the day and run the errands that needed to be done.

I recommend this face mask, if you are looking for an easy sheet mask, with refreshing effects!
