Review : Hada Labo Retional Lifting + Firming Mask

Oh boy, it’s not gonna sound good.  I am gravely disappointed.  You could almost bet that it was a sure win.  So much so I had a legit plan laid out and this was gonna be a crucial part of my weekly treatment.

But it’s okay, I digress.

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Mask

The Experience

Sorry, I’m gonna be downright harsh and say that this is disappointing!  This box comes in 4 pcs which is the most expensive set of masks amongst all the HADA LABO ranges, at RM49.90.  After much daunting my temptation and playing with my weakness for the curious, I thought of a brilliant plan, change my facial routine completely upside down, and incorporate this into this master plan of mine.

I will write about my seemingly brilliant plan in coming posts.

The Packaging : Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Mask

The Packaging : Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Mask

Hada Labo Retinol range hosts a series of genuine age fighting ingredients that strongly encouraged and gave me the ultimate confidence that this will definitely work.  I mean, retinol? SUPER HA???  COLLAGEN AND HYDROLYZED???  Come on!  If common sense isn’t enough proof, this is the official claim from their website :

  • Helps to rejuvenate skin cells to significantly improve skin’s elasticity and firmness.
  • Instantly smoothes skin’s surface to reveal healthy and youthful looking skin.
  • Skin PH balanced.  Low irritation.
  • Free of fragrances, mineral oil and colorant.

So, lets check on each of these claims.  But remember how I said Skinfood mask gave a sense of melted kitchen wrap over your face?  That’s it guys.  It was soooo sticky!  I laid in an air con room, had the mask on the 30 minutes.  Upon removal, both my hands were sticky and my face is so sticky.  I patted, patted and patted, hopefully this would go away, cause I really wanted it to work.  In the end, I gave up, I didn’t follow up with any of my serum because there was simply no way there could be anymore room for absorption.  Instead, I even had to use my day moisturiser (which has mattifying effect) to take away the stickiness.

Did my skin appear glowy, refreshed, brightened like other masks?  No.

So did I look younger instantaneously?  I didn’t expect it to and yeah, it didn’t.

Irritation?  Matter of fact, a lil bit!  My skin had it’s usual redness as a way of protesting against my experiments.

Was my skin smooth?  HOW CAN IT BE SMOOTH?  It’s so sticky!!  Ants would get themselves trapped if they crawled over my face in my sleep.  So, NO!

So seriously guys, I hope I don’t put you off with my two cents.  In any case I”m wrong, do let me know!  As for now, I stand… disappointed.

*pfft*

Review : SkinPeptoxyl Instant Soothing Bio-Cellulose Mask

Skin Peptoxyl Instant Soothing Bio-Cellulose Mask

Skin Peptoxyl Instant Soothing Bio-Cellulose Mask

Behold!  This is by far the most expensive mask I’ve bought, and it takes its winner spot for one of the most worthwhile purchase uncontested.   For this I would categorize in a different shelf from the common sheet masks that I review about.  For one, it is priced at RM110 @ 4pcs!  I got it on sales at Sasa for RM88++.  Secondly, I would view this as an actual treatment mask that does calm the skin and provides lasting effects that goes beyond “your skin looks bright right after”.  Those common sheet masks eg.  My Scheming Beauty Masks, they do provide all the brightening effects and hydration.  But this mask is different, here I will elaborate and tell you why.

The Claims

Before I delve into how this mask is such a big deal, let me just list out it’s claims as on the box.

  • Specially formulated for sensitive skin, powerfully soothes and moisturizes dry and sensitive skin, repairs weaken skin condition and upraises skin defense mechanism.
  • Fights against wrinkles and tightens skin while gently pampering the most sensitive skin
  • Improves skin elasticity by stimulating of collagen & elastin
  • Nanao structure of true skin-like bio-cellulose mask comfortably fits the skin and ensure deep penetration of the effective ingredients into dermal layer to deliver immediate effect.

That’s not all, the box label also nicely summarizes its Features and Benefits:

  • Reduces redness, inflammation and allergic reaction
  • Protects skin from damaging free radicals
  • Upraises skin’s own defense mechanism thus reducing sensitivity
  • Instantly nourishes, soothes and repairs sensitive and dry skin and stop irritation
  • Accelerates growth of collagen and elastin
  • Smoothes wrinkles and fine lines

Impressed yet?  Lets move on to the compositions.

Features and Benefits, and Key Ingredients.

Features and Benefits, and Key Ingredients.

The Ingredients

I remember when I was looking through the ingredients of this mask I yelped out “AH!  COPPER PEPTIDE!”  That’s right, Copper baby!  Copper is a powerful mineral helps to repairs your skin cells, and I guess that’s how they target their audience to those with sensitive skin.  That aside, when you read through the label, it has Aqua as its 1st ingredient and sodium hyaluronate as 2nd, Aloe Leaf Juice Extract as 3rd.  That fundamentals alone are enough for me.  Further down the list you get a handful of plant extracts, peptides, you get caffeine and you get zinc, and even urea!  With only 1 form of paraben which is methylparaben.

On the box,  these are the functions of the key ingredients as listed on the box :

  • Bis (Tripeptide-1) Copper Acetate – A key factor for stimulating growth of collagen and elastin, accelerating epidermis cell production and reparing skin barrier protection.  Promotes skin elasticity and prevent aging.
  • Beta-Glucan – Strong soothing power that helps to soothe sensitive skin and improve weaken condition.  Effectively boosts skin’s own defense mechanism to lower irritation.
  • Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate – Restrains the production of Tyrosinase for cell renewal, brightening effect and prevent allergy and inflammation
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Extract) – Ideal for soothing and recovering from signs of stress and damages by its healing power.

And the list goes on…

The Experience

First off, the word Bio-Cellulose in the label probably indicates that this mask is not of a sheet mask, it is more like a gel mask but MUCH thicker than a crystal mask, it actually has weight.  It has 2 layers of peels as you would with a typical gel mask, and it thins out as it dries on your face.  So in that aspect you can expect the nutritions to sip into your skin over time, so you know damn well, your skin is, recharged. Again, for something so nutritious, I leave it on for more 1 hour 15 minutes.

You can tell the mask is almost done by the way it dries up, this was about 50min into it.

You can tell the mask is almost done by the way it dries up, this was about 50min into it.

Second, I couldn’t pass on the ingredients.  They are just too good, and… clean.  There was nothing unnecessary packed in it.  It has Copper, a genuine active ingredient that does repair your skin barrier.  It is no doubt expensive but once I tried it I did not regret.  In fact, I am quite determined to incorporate it into my life long regime *ahem*… if i don’t get distracted that is.  I am so convinced by it’s efficacy that, I don’t just use the mask as and when I feel like, I actually have been using it EVERY MONDAY.  Since the box comes in 4 pieces and it is actually a treatment mask, not a self-pampering mask, I made it a point to use it every Monday so there’s consistency in the regime, ‘cept for the week I had my facial.

When you remove the mask, your face feels neither wet or damp, it is all absorbed.  The redness are reduced by a notch (I get red bumps that are neither pimples or blemishes due to weird sensitivities which I’ve yet to identify).  And this effect does carry on, skin is noticeably less irritated by all kinds of crap samples I tried.

And the lifting effect?  Yes.  I just saw myself in the mirror.  I usually sport a scrawny face but boy do I compulsively binge eat and CNY hasn’t been kind to me.  The pressure to finish mum’s food and the sweet treats, with God’s might I may tear down the toughest walls but I can’t resist ’em sweet munchies!  So there it goes, my face goes angular-round overnight.  But as I removed the mask just now, my face goes slim again, which was, amazing!  Because I wouldn’t have noticed it and seen the claim, normally.

The Verdict

Definitely will buy it again, if I still can find it.  I didn’t see it at the Sasa store I went to just now.  Also, of course as stated, if you have sensitive skin, this is definitely the right one for you.  And if you want a mask that goes beyond temporary skin brightening and hydration, this would be the mask to go.  I would also advice that you use it regularly on a once a week basis, not as and when you feel like.  Only thing to pay is, literally, the price.

Parcels of Goodies! (part 1) Review : Avani Dead Sea Natural Mineral Body Scrub in Milk Honey

I must have forgotten, there was one fine day and merely just rushing my shit done in the office, I received a parcel in the morning and I went, “phew! Finally…”  The order was placed for nearly 2 months ago.  Then, when I was about to leave the office, the clerk handed me another parcel.

And boy, must it have been a good day!

And let the goodies unveil!

It comes in a huge fat jar of ROCK SEA SALTS with CONCOCTIONS of all good and nourishing oil that is almost a guarantee to some form of longevity.  Check this.

*Reading the ingredients make me wanna take a tablespoon of it in the morning to keep my skin and immune system upbeat.  

MILK HONEY!!!!

MILK HONEY!!!!

The Experience

As you can see, the sea salt is not infused with the oil, they are just incorporated in a jar.  The first time I used it, I almost gave it a 2/5.  One thing, I kinda had a nappy rash (oops!) on my bum and … really? salt on open wound?  Brilliant.

Upon opening the jar, my first concern was definitely that the oil will finish/dry up way before the sea salt does.  And I’ll tell you, these sea salts r like the size of… evil sharp crystals man!  So What am I gonna do when all the good and heavenly oil run out?  Cook with the sea salt?  Might as well I pan fry some dead sea fish with the nutritious oil and  season it with this dead sea sea salt.

And if you are the type that likes really clean and dry skin after shower, you will hate this product.  No shit.  Because, your skin is just infused with oil, you definitely don’t get that squeaky clean feel.  After shower, there are droplets of water on your skin, which is kinda a cool sight to look at.

But by my second use, I like it, heck, I enjoy it more now!  Somehow I grab a handful of ’em badass sounding sea salt (trying to squeeze as much oil out as possible) and start my scrubbing ritual.  And this time, probably without any open wound, the sea salt doesn’t feel rocky, and it actually melts!

So I scrub scrub and scrub… so much fun you can have on your own! 😛

Well, if you’ve been paying attention of my chronic severe dry skin with atopic dermatitis, I certainly don’t mind the sensation of oil infused in skin.  (Not like baby oil rubbed and layered on your skin, this actually penetrates into your skin.)

The Verdict

If you need and immediate dry skin relief due to pro-longed air conditioning or you need a winter rescue kit, this would be perfect for you.

For those who hate any form of oiliness and are used to harsh form wash to be considered a fresh-and-clean shower.  You would definitely want to take another shower.

Dry Skin – To The Rescue! (Part 1) Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask with OxygEnergy by Aviance.

I find myself really blessed to have friends who care!  I thought I was just whining away online about my chronic yet sudden acute dry skin, I didn’t mean to bother anybody.  But guess what?  I’ve been receiving care packages from friends 1 by 1!

Just this morning, dearest Lynn made her delivery boy 😛 send me something to salvage my skin problems.

First thing first, what happens when you’re on the road for 3 weeks straight?  Goodness, you need a thorough cleansing!  I’ve always had a jar of algae purifying mask stored in the fridge, which I use regularly for no less than 2-4 times a week, provided I’m not holed up in another hotel.

So I was given this sampler mask today, Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask with OxygEnergy by Aviance.

Aviance Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask with OxygEnergy

Aviance Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask with OxygEnergy – 40g / RM115.00

How Does Aviance Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask Work?

According to the catalogue:

“This delightfully refreshing, cleansing mask helps intensively remove impurities to reveal a clarified, shine-free and radiant complexion.  It has been formulated with purifying natural clay together with exclusive OxygEnergy which helps re-mineralize and revitalize the skin during use.  It leaves the skin naturally clarified, matte and absolutely revitalized.”

The Experience

Well, this might have been my mistake as I didn’t expect today to be a sunny day so the product was left my in car at its sunniest hours.  I’m not sure if that affected it.  Nonetheless the product is of a very thick texture, definitely not easy to spread.  But that also makes the fact that a very thin layer would suffice.

Aviance Mattifying Oil-Control Deep Pore Mask with OxygEnergy

The mask comes in the colour of cool mud green.

Doesn’t that remind you of wasabi?

The Mask comes with a practically sized spatula for hygiene purpose.

The Mask comes with a practically sized spatula for hygiene purpose.

As you can see, the products are beautifully packaged, another range of products that’s well thought out.

Although it appears to be the colour of “cool mud green”, upon application it is transparent entirely.  And with a thin layer applied, it would soon begin to harden and tighten.  Within minutes it would be so tight that breathing through the mouth isn’t a comfortable option, I am so down with the flu.  When I got up and looked at myself in the mirror I was literally SHOCKED.  Cause at that moment with the mask on, I had such a porcelain face, glossy and air brushed, the mannequin look.  I kinda wish I could wear this look all day, I could give up talking and just nod if I had to.  The tightening sensation was not bizarre to me as this type of mask is fairly common at salons.  I would even park this on the range of salon quality!

I set the timer to 20 minutes and I rinsed it off with water.  When mixed with water, it emulsifies.  I went back and checked myself in the mirror again, my face was RADIANT.  I kid you not, albeit it was a bit dry on the skin surface.  So I guess in that regards, it somewhat achieved the claim of “mattifying”.  But by goodness!  The radiance!

My friend, Lynn who owns this product says what’s most significant for her is the shrinkage of her pores, and if the wicked pimples suddenly bestow upon her flawless face, this would be the mask to her rescue.  The mask would dry up the blemishes whilst reducing the redness too.

Conclusion

The price is definitely on a higher end but given that it is a jar of 40g of merry goodness and each time you only need a thin layer, I would say it’s pretty worth the deal.  The most important thing is after you purchase it, you must use it regularly, especially useful when you come back from work and this mask with it’s specially trademarked technology OxygEnergy, it just helps your skin to breathe a little.

A Little Background on AVIANCE

I truly, truly love this brand.  So far the products I’ve purchased have never disappointed moi.  I am so head over heels for their Resilient Complex Ultimate Smoothing Double Caviar Eye Cream.  I’ll save this review for another day.  Anyway, have you heard of Unilever?  If not, you should have, because it’s ALL AROUND YOU!  Cause Unilever has been the motherfluffing boss of your everyday needs!  Brands like Rexona, Dove, Sunsilk, Breeze the detergent, to Lady’s Choice, Lipton, it’s all under the epic umbrella of Unilever.  That is why I have the absolute faith in their luxury line, Aviance.  Think of Unilever as the giant corporation that specializes in our every day needs with years of experience since the dawn of time.  Unilever no doubt has all the resources, research and development centres and infinite amount of data ever needed to create wonderful products, and brilliant marketing.  So there you have it, if we’ve been exposed to their everyday products by Unilever, it just gives me more reasons to be excited with Aviance.  The Resilient Complex Ultimate Smoothing Double Caviar Eye Cream was what turned my skepticism (like come on, you’re expensive, you know?) to a user that would stand by the brand.

–  Too much diarrhea, TL:DR.  This mask gives radiance finish, calms your redness and your blemishes, only it can be too dry on the skin surface, so follow-up moisturizing regime is necessary.

That is all.

BEST MASK! – COLLAGEN CRYSTAL FACIAL MASK

Hello Beauties,

It’s about time that I bring you this post on THE BEST MASK!

Having missed the whole hype during its initial launch (many years ago), I only finally tried this Collagen Crystal Facial Mask sometime this year.  I was traveling when I bought this, after a customer commented on how old I’ve looked after a year.

And that incidence, it shone a light on the journey of masks, and emergency facial rescue.

This mask has truly stood out, in the pool of non-saloon masks.

So What Is A Collagen Crystal Facial Mask?

Collagen Crystal Facial Mask

Collagen Crystal Facial Mask

If you’re not familiar with what a crystal mask is, it is unlike a sheet mask, it has a jelly/gel like texture.  Instead of drying up like a sheet mask, crystal mask melts its essence into your skin from your natural body heat.  This crystal mask, makes some hefty claims to its benefits, and  the best thing is, it does deliver.

You can see the mask has melted to your body heat, and your skin is moist and hydrated with the essence melted off the collagen crystal mask.

What Are The Benefits of A Collagen Crystal Facial Mask?

The back of the packaging lists down fine details of benefits, instructions and ingredients.

The back of the packaging lists down fine details of benefits, instructions and ingredients.

Based on the label, it claims to have effects on:

  • Whitening
  • Moisturising
  • Anti-Wrinkle
  • Oil-Control
  • Pore Reducing
  • Hydration

Ingredients Of A Collagen Crystal Facial Mask

This mask comes compact with some impressive ingredients.  Not a lot of preservatives like common sheet masks.  Here are the ingredients:

Aqua, Glycerin, Polyinyl Alcohol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Tartaricacid, Grape Seed Oil (vitis vinfera), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocophbryl Acetate (Vitamin E), BHT, Methylparaben, Fragaben, Fragrance, Phyto-Collagen, Aloe Vera, Green Tea Extract, Plum Extract

So How Good is The Crystal Collagen Facial Mask Really???

You can use this mask for 30 minutes long, or some choose to leave this overnight, for not more than 12 hours.  Whilst I’m not too used to sleeping with masks on, yet because the mask is so nutritious, I leave it on for 1 hour.

After 1 hour of application, freshly removed.

After 1 hour of application, freshly removed.

Here is the result of collagen crystal facial mask after 1 hour, freshly removed.  You can obviously tell the skin is so much more brightened, supple, and so hydrated!  Even when compared to a good sheet mask, the effect of brightening this collagen crystal mask achieves is much more capturing.  And you know what’s the REAL KEY BENEFIT?  The effects, they last for at least another day or two!  With sheet masks, the effects don’t carry forward to the next day, but this does!

Just last night I did it and this morning I woke up to a fantastic fair and even face, brightened up, all my fatigues washed away.

Collagen Crystal Facial Mask is also suitable for all skin types!

I have let a couple of friends try it and all come back with news of superior results.  Because of it’s formula, your skin is able to breathe as it doesn’t have any waxy substance suffocating your faces and masking your pores, all it does is just juicy substance slowly absorbed by your skin, hence it’s suitable for any skin type, even for acne prone skin.  Unless you are specifically allergic to the ingredients listed.

Conclusion

This is literally my Holy Grail of masks.  When I’m late for my facial appointment, this suffices to delay my appointments for another week.  Also with this mask, my skin just glows the next day, I tend to skip any foundation and just let the natural glowing face be beautiful on it’s own.

I like it so much, not only I bought just 1 but all the variations for specific purposes!

Good Mask! My Scheming Masks 我的心机面膜

Here I am out of town again.  Without much entertainment, (actually, home or away) I frequently end up purchasing items that are not of immediate urgency.  Decided to pack light this trip, I brought along the travel trio pack of Biotherm Aquasource (This will be blogged about REAL SOON I promise), seriously forgotten about any serum/essence for the extra oomph.

Well, having not much to do my friend and I stepped into Watsons (again), and I bought myself 2 more masks from My Scheming!

1 I brought from home, 2 I just bought.

1 I brought from home, 2 I just bought.

They are each :

– My Scheming Pearl Whitening Mask (I’m getting curious about the effects of pearls, a lot of big cosmetic brands are listing or making it a key ingredient.)

– My Scheming Aloe Vera + Vitamin E Mask (This is more of what I like, logical, proven, and down to earth, no funky ingredients or sources that make u go, “eh?”)

– My Scheming Hyaluronan Acid + Sponge Cucumber Extract + Hydrating Silk Mask (Eh?)

So out of ’em three, I choose you, Aloe Vera + Vitamin E Mask.

For those who are more organic-conscious consumers, please note that  propylene glycol is the 2nd main ingredient.  I just noticed that.

For those who are more organic-conscious consumers, please note that propylene glycol is the 2nd main ingredient. I just noticed that.

Unlike the previous mask from My Scheming I posted, this has a different sheet.  It’s closer to a gel mask yet undoubtedly sheet (wait does it make sense?)  It kisses your skin perfectly, without lumps and bumps.

Can you see the oh-so-smoothness just sticks and kisses my face? Loving it!

Can you see the oh-so-smoothness just sticks and kisses my face? Loving it!

I put this on for 30 minutes, as usual.  One thing you might like to consider is the air-conditioner, as it dries up the mask faster than it should.  Better to have all the juicy essence be absorbed to your skin than let that stupid air-con to dry up your mask.

How did the result do?

The result was as expected, skin is brightened up.  Hydrated, from the inside.  It’s strange, somehow you can just see that the hydration comes from the inside.  Pretty cool isn’t it?

This is the result after 30 minutes of mask application.

This is the result after 30 minutes of mask application.

It doesn’t leave a layer of wax or melted kitchen wrap on your face like the previous Skinfood mask.You tap the remaining essence into your skin lightlly, and apply the remaining essence in the wrapper on your necks, collars, decollete if you will!

Verdict?

Beautiful.  Never falls below expectation.  As usual it delivers the 3 promises of Moisturization, Hydration and Brightening Effect.

So ladies, please head on down to Watsons and hoard up on those My Scheming Masks like they are the most nutritious can food for you to survive an apocalypse cause it’s going on Sales!  2 Masks for RM10.35 on the dot.

Man, year end sales is fun.

GOOD MASK! Q10 + ROYAL JELLY DOUBLE LIFTING MASK by MY SCHEMING BEAUTY

I stopped exploring sheet masks for a long time now, unless I have a 2 weeks long meetings, being caged in the hotels from beginning to end.  Waking up at 6am everyday for 2 weeks!  Things will definitely take a toll on you, that’s when I first bought this mask, yunno, giving self a lil RnR while away on business trips.

Q10 + ROYAL JELLY DOUBLE LIFTING MASK by MY SCHEMING BEAUTY

Q10 + ROYAL JELLY DOUBLE LIFTING MASK by MY SCHEMING BEAUTY

Of all the sheet masks that I’ve tried, and with so many options out there online, chain stores and all, I truly think this one deserves the credit.  So much so this is the 4th one I’ve bought!  I mean, after I found out how good this mask is, I wanna try its other lines, but hah!  I’m the kind that enjoys meeting expectations.

About The Product

My Scheming is a brand from Taiwan, most prominent with their masks, which can be found in Watsons in Malaysia.  Over the whole shelf of masks in Watsons, this prices itself above RM10.00 bracket.

The product consists of Q10 with Royal Jelly as its main ingredients, with the promise of lifting.  Q10 is commonly associated with anti-aging effect for its antioxidant properties, and Royal Jelly is known for its energizing effect.

Product Features

This mask is slightly different from other common sheet masks as this offers a extra sheet for your neck!  Hence it’s “double lifting” title in the product title.  Not only that, this mask has “ear hooks”, featured on both the face and neck masks.  WIth this ear hooks, you no longer have to lie on your bed/couch like a corpse.  With the hooks on, at least you can get up to get yourself a glass of water or so, you can walk in and out of rooms.  Pretty neat stuff.  Well thoought out.  You sitll need to be in lying down mode most of the time, just that the ear hooks offers a little leverage for you to get up and down a little.  Answering calls?  Still a no no.

Side View : See how the hooks hold up the masks thus increase your mobility instead of lying stuck on your bed/couch with your conventional masks.

Well, more like experience(s)!  Hah.  Let me tell you, I have ALWAYS disliked the feeling of things hanging on my neck.  The facial packages I signed up with my beautician, I voluntarily ditched the neck mask eventhough its included in the package.

But with this I thought it’d would be a waste of money if I discard the neck mask.

So I went with it,  I tried.  And I was BLOWN AWAY.

 

How did it blow my mind?  IT IS THE MOMENT THE SHEET MASK WAS REMOVED FROM MY FACE AFTER 30 MINUTES,  right upon removal, the finelines on my neck disappeared!  Can you imagine how amazing it is?!  It’s like that neck lines (although, they’re fine) just got ironed out.  It was no visible AT ALL.

So now tell me, how can I not be addicted to this specific product line out of other masks from My Scheming too?  Cause the results were dazzling!

The Results

after result

Q10 + Royal Jelly Double Lifting Mask by My Scheming Mask

 

I hope in this pic you can see the brightening effected, and my skin is supple, ever so delicately hydrated from the inside.  How about the after feel?  NO WAXY FEELING AT ALL.  NADA.  Upon removal of the sheet, your face feels so light, and it definitely brightens up!  The product left on your face are just pure light essence and with some light tapping it gets so easily absorbed into your skin.

Verdict :

I definitely will introduce this to everyone (except for severe acne prone skin).  This mask runs a good price with the quality it offers.  And friends, please go ahead and explore it’s other range too cause I’m so sure they would be as good!  While Q10 is proven a powerful antioxidant, but there are virtually not enough studies to scientifically prove that Q10 can indeed reverse skin aging – and hence the lift.  But I am head over heels for Royal Jelly, my complexion brightened up after I started using this night cream (salon brand) with Royal Jelly as main ingredient.  So basically, I’d grab anything that with Royal Jelly as main ingredient.

For the remnants of “mask juice” in the pack?  Use it all up!  Apply it all over your body!  Let that nutritions flow baby!
