Skincare Routine: Spring 2014 Nighttime skincare routine for acne-prone skin

Skincare Review: My Sassy Sheet Mask Hydraluronan Hydration and Snail Essence

My Sassy Sheet Mask Hydraluronan Hydration and Snail Essence

These two masks were given to me by a friend who was visiting from Taiwan.  At first, I didn't know this brand at all, but she told me that she uses this brand daily because it's cheap and great value.  So I said sure I will try. 

I have to admit that I was quite surprised when I was using this mask.  The sheet mask material is the thinnest that I have used in the cheaper brand.  And this is a cheaper brand, I compared the price at my local Asian supermarket, it's about $10-13 for a pack of 10. 

Not only was the sheet mask thin, it also was jam packed with essence.  They have quite a collection of the same line that they sell, and this line was all about the thin sheet mask material. 

I was so pleased with the product that even before finishing up the 4 that  was given to me, I already brought a 10-pack box myself.  I wished I didn't jump the gun, and just waited until I tried all of it. 

You see, the problem is I was so surprised at how thin the mask was and how much essence there was, I didn't realized that sometime there would be small white scrub-able particles that remain on my face after taking off the mask. 

Anyways, when I review the 10-pack box I'll explain it in more detail.

Skincare Empty: Freeman Charcoal and Black Sugar Polishing Mask

Freeman  Charcoal and Black Sugar Polishing Mask

I have tried many of the Freeman mask series, including  Avocado Oatmeal, Lemon, strawberry chocolate, dead sea mineral clay, and this one charcoal black sugar.  I would definitely call this mask more of a scrub than mask, first of all when trying to apply this mask all over your face, it's not easy.  The texture is not easily spreadable, unlike the other clay masks, the black sugar will often fall apart when applying as a layer over your face. 

Black sugar is very good for exfoliation, but I feel maybe it's too harsh as a scrub.  The charcoal mask part is not that great either, because its texture is not like the other mask which dries up and you see instant effect, this mask doesn't change consistency no matter how long you put it on your face, so I'm not sure what is it doing. 

So as a mask and facial scrub, I would say it's not that good, towards the end, I was just trying to used up the bottle, so I used it as a body scrub.  It was definitely too harsh for face scrub, but as a body scrub, I think it's just right, definitely will make your body silky smooth, but I would use this scrub everyday either because it's still harsh.

Overall Review: 2/5, I gave 2 because Freeman products are cheap for its size and value.  As a mask and scrub, it definitely is not good, in my opinion, but I mean there are body scrubs that cost more than this bottle and would not be as good of a body scrub.  My favorite Freeman mask would still have to be Avocado and Oatmeal mask, and least favorite is Strawberry Chocolate mask, so this mask is not the worst, I guess that's a good news.

Skincare Routine: Spring Skincare Routine 2014 Acne-prone Skin

Spring Skincare Routine 2014 Acne-prone Skin

This is the first skincare routine that I have written about.  As you can see from the picture, I don't usually stick with just one line of products.  I think it's usually because I start buying something and not buy the whole series.  I usually buy items that I read from beauty blogger that they say it's really good.

Missha SuperAqua is probably the only brand that I brought both the skin essence and emulsion from.  I use the skin essence more like a serum rather than as a toner.  The pink bottle from a Taiwanese brand and it's really popular in Asia because for its price the product is highly valued.  Neutrogena 3-in-1 hydrating acne treatment is my holy grail acne product, if I don't use this I find that my skin will more likely break out.  It's tough to admit that I am at an age that salicylic acid works better than benzoic perioxide.  The other is a whitening serum from a brand called My Sassy, pretty good whitening effect.  Last but not least is Naruko Tea Tree Night Jelly, I have repurchase this multiple times, really good for acne skin.
