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!

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

Pamper products you might need during this Isolation Period!

Hi guys !!

Let’s see how much I will keep up to my blogging schedule, because if you didn’t know, I am trying to write up a blog post every Saturday!!

How are you all today? Me … not bad I guess, just a little confused. Malta is doing really well with regards to the COVID-19 situation, we even are getting some restrictions lifted starting from next Monday. Like clothes shops and shoe shops are reopening. You cannot go into changing rooms to try clothes or shoes, masks need to be worn and only a limited amount of people are allowed in the shop at once.

I mean it’s a start. Yet, I feel confused as to what I can do and what I cannot do. Like am I allowed to mix with other people? I mean I still live at home with my parents and brother, and well do not wish to put them at risk, so am practising strict isolation measures whereby I meet NO ONE. I mean I do go to work twice a week, and when I am home I take precautions and this means yes, that I don’t get any hugs … which I really miss !! I mean I do hug Nemo, she is my only proper contact and she’s not a hugger or a cuddler which makes it even worse.

This no hugging or cuddling is affecting me I think. Anyways point of the story, I am confused. Anyways, one thing I know how to do is pamper myself and I have found 3 products which have pampered me and made me feel better! These are the following –

#1 These are the Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner from Jo Hansford. I received all these items in the Lookfantastic Beauty Box I am subscribed too. I chose to subscribe to something like this, cos I thought …”hey it might introduce me to some new products.” And it has!!

So their scents might not be my favourite I felt that they were strong fruity scents but my hair did love them!! It was soft, shiny and not frizzy! I have highlights in my hair and these products did brighten them up and keep my lights ashy rather than go all brassy! Highly recommend you check this brand out!

#2 The next products is this Coffee Scrub!! I just featured this in my recent video on my YT Channel! I will link the video further down in this post!! I found this in the April 2020 lookfantastic box! OMG I loved using this! When I got out of the shower my skin felt super soft!!! I absolutely loved it!!! The only thing I do not like with coffee scrubs is how messy they can be! But so worth it!! It’s waiting for me in the shower to use it again!

#3 And my final product for today is this Starskin Face Mask! – OH MY GOD! IS ALL I HAVE TO STAY! First of all I have never used a sheet mask which includes 2 steps ! This one does! The first step was to use that capsule which came with pure camelia oil and I kinda used it all !! You only are meant to apply a little bit of drops but yes I used it all!! And then step 2 is applying the sheet mask! And let me tell you I can easily say that this is the best sheet mask I have ever tried in my entire life! Again, this was found in the April 2020 box of Lookfantastic and I loved it!!!! I highly recommend this mask!

YOU NEED TO TRY IT OUT! It gives you that pampered spa feeling!

Anyways, those were the three products I wished to share with you all for this week!! Have you tried any of them? Please let me know in the comments down below!!

Anywhos, that’s all for me today! Before I go I wish to share with you what videos I uploaded this week on my YT channel

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.

IMG_1488.JPG

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! 

IMG_1476.JPG

How I applied it – 

IMG_1470.JPG

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 – 

IMG_1486.JPG

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

IMG_1501

IMG_1497

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!

Have you ever tried this sheet mask? Comment down below!

Thank you once again Avon Malta for giving me this opportunity to test out this product, I enjoyed the experience!

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog post and liked it!

Until next time
