Facial Mask Reviews
Holika Holika is a popular brand that’s taking Korean by storm courtesy the Harry Potter-like marketing of the products and stores.
Their skincare comes in potion-like bottles and jars that has a witch-y kinda look to it. Very cute in my opinion but that goes without saying when it comes to Korean brands.
Of course, they also have color cosmetics as well in equally delightful packaging (and CNBLUE slapped into a few commercials helps things along dramatically, pause for fan girl squeal! You know you want members of CNBLUE applying your makeup, don’t be lying!).
I was curious about the skincare but I had my doubts about how effective it would be considering this line is geared more towards a younger generation of makeup and skincare users.
But I indulged in the Holika Holika Medi-Medi Vita C Pack Skin Brightening Wash Off Mask since I have my little obsessions with whitening/brightening products.
Let’s take a look!
How stupid cute are these Sexylook X Hello Kitty Sheet Masks?
While on holiday this Summer I picked up too many boxes of these for myself and friends in a variety of formulas since I adore Hello Kitty.
Let’s take a peek!
BRTC is a Korean brand you may recognize. It’s not sold within the US but their BB Creams have a rather huge cult following around the Internet.
BRTC also excels at creating some very good skincare. Some of the products in the line are HG (holy grail) material for me.
I indulged in their sheet mask collection quite a while ago when they originally introduced the Vitalizer line. I was quite excited about these masks and they promised quite a good deal of great ingredients.

Yeah, I admit, I’m a little bit of a facial sheet h0r. I hoard them like it’s my career and I use at least three or four masks a week to keep my skin smooth and hydrated. I find I drop off a bit in the Summer but in the Winter my skin needs some serious TLC and facial masks are really a treat to get things in order.
If you’ve never tried an Asian Facial Sheet Mask before they are super simple to use. Masks come individually packaged and are saturated with essence. You place the mask on your face (they are typically made from durable cotton fiber) and you sit around for 10-20 minutes allowing the essence to absorb into your skin.
The joy of Asian Sheet Masks is the ease of use and the variety of formulas available for brighter skin, whitening skin, anti-aging benefits, etc…
Love More is a series of masks that’s supposed to contain 25ml of essence per sheet thus the name “Love More”.
Take a look!
Proactiv Refining Mask is a deep cleansing sulfur face mask that helps to deep clean and minimize pores.
I tried a sulfur mask from one of my favorite brands a few years ago and holy cow it smelled awful, rotten eggs anyone?
Surprisingly enough this mask has a fresh floral scent, seriously, for something that contains a ton of sulfur I expected it to smell super bad so I was surprised.
I’m suffer from drier skin and not a ton of problems with spots or acne but this is a nice way to clear up any issues should they rise up and obviously a great one should you have battle with acne daily.
Proactiv was kind enough to send over a sample for me to try out and I gave it a whirl because I’m pretty much up for trying out anything new in the skincare world. Love beauty but skincare junkie I happen to be as well!
This is a creamy mask that you can apply all over your skin and leave on for 10 minutes proceeding to rinse after the time is up. I held off using it until I had skin issues that skin issue happened to be a breakout on my jaw line from holding a phone against my face all day explaining and re-explaining a return premium to a client of mine ugh!
This didn’t clear up my problem completely but it did try up the spots I had and I followed up with a little Proactiv Treatment Gel and I was go to go. Didn’t have to whip out a band aid and plead to people that I really was hiding a scratch under it and not a big old pimple!
