Facial Mask Reviews
I think I’m coming to terms with the fact that I may be a mask junkie. Hoarding facial masks like they are going out of style or something, applying them nightly, convincing myself that I look whiter, brighter, more youthful…
Yeah, all the signs of a mask junkie.
I’ve been using The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack for ages since I get a little high off the scent. This is part of Skin Food’s Raspberry range and you might remember the eye cream I reviewed a while ago from the collection. This has a strange freshly turned dirt, herbal scent going on that I find terribly addicting. Some folks say it smells like Chinese medicine herbs but I don’t get that from it, I get freshly turned up dirt! Surprising since I’m fruity, sweet kinda girl and anything that’s remotely smells like stinky hippie is tossed into the bin…but this…I find soothing somehow.
What’s it do?
Does it work?
A reader recently mentioned that Kim Jae Wook was preparing for military service and I was aghast. He’s too young plus he’s at a real height in his career at the moment.
Well, it’s confirmed.
He is entering the army and I’m the only one that thinks he’s young. Girlfriday, over at DramaBeans, was thinking the very same thing about his age as I was. I guess we were both blinded because he’s actually nearing 30 years old! He’s 28 here in the US and 29 in Korea so really it’s about time for his service to begin.
Many Asian countries have mandatory military service with a time frame that varies. South Korea is normally near two years but I believe there was some discussion about reducing this.
Either way, away he goes! Joe Cheng and Rain should be also gearing up for service as their ages are looming near, Rain possibly sooner than Joe. Get me out a hanky!
I need to relax with a good face mask. Face Q Cavier and Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Mask to the rescue!
Beauty Story Sheet Masks supposedly contain diamond particles…seriously, people, WTH does that even mean? Diamond particles. Oh stop now!
Diamond promises aside, it does contain a heap load of Royal Jelly Extract so I feel like Queen B when I wear it.
Royal Jelly is derived from the secretions of male worker bees! That’s right bish, gather my honey! Crack the whip! It’s made up of amino acids (among other things, secretions? please child, let’s hope that isn’t what I think it is) and a ton of vitamins and minerals. Some brands harvest it because it’s a great natural skin care ingredient but I just like it because it moisturizers skin all crazy like and improves the general appearance and texture of it! I won’t get into all its great benefits but needless to say Royal Jelly is a rocking ingredient to include in a sheet mask!

My Beauty Diary has a new range of sheet masks that were released several months ago entitled Blooming of Beauty. These masks are a new range that are supposedly more effective than the the masks in the general catalog. They also sport a thinner material that allows the essence to be absorbed more easily into the skin.
Since I wanted to try the entire range of masks in the Blooming Beauty Collection I decided to get a the My Beauty Dairy Blooming of Beauty Mask Package Set.
Let’s have a look!
As you know I’m quite the fan girl when it comes to My Beauty Diary Face Masks so when Face Q (made by the same company) started popping up on the scene I made double sure to haul a few boxes and see what all the hype was about.
If you’ve never used a face mask they are truly a treat. Sadly, the Western market hasn’t quite caught the facial mask bug and they aren’t something you’d easily have access to at your drugstore unlike Asia where they are available at both high end counters with large price tags and drugstore for mere pennies.
Let’s take a look at the Face Q Peony, Snow and Sake Yeast Whitening Masks.
