Purederm Green Tea Collagen Mask : Review


“I regret taking such good care of my skin.”
-said no-one ever!


Continuing with the sheet mask series, today is all about the Purederm Green Tea Collagen Sheet Mask.

Purederm Green Tea Collagen Sheet Mask Review

Purederm Skin Solutions claim – “Now you can get Korean professional-level treatments from the comfort of your home. Purederm products are some the highest quality imported skincare treatments. And these will cost you quite a bit less than your usual beauty products.

For pure and perfect skin, choose Purederm. You can rely on Purederm’s innovative range of patches and masks to clarify and perfect your appearance. Purederm has a range of Anti-Wrinkle, Age Defying and Spot Reducing products for the skin.”

Purederm Green Tea Collagen Sheet Mask

Like I said in a previous review Purederm has quite a few different varieties of facial sheet masks and the ones I choose are from their Skin Recovery range.

This came in a pack of 5 for Rs. 329/- …a steal!!!


What it promises:

• Easy and effective Skin Recovery treatment formulated with Green Tea Extract Collagen and Vitamin E.

• This silky mask helps maintain ideal moisture level of the skin by providing a constant supply of moisture and nutrition.

• Natural pulp sheet prevent skin trouble and provides close adhesion to the face.


Does it deliver? My thoughts?

Yes 🙂

This is an amazing mask. The sheet is soaked in a lot of essence, though you don’t have any leftover in the sachet.

The fit is perfection, so a big big plus for me. I like that Purederm masks have the flap on the eyes, so if you’re laying down, simply cover your eyelid and let it soak the goodness! The eyeholes were nice and wide too.

Another thing I really enjoyed with this mask is how cooling & soothing it felt. The mask adheres to the skin, making sure your skin is absorbing the essence.

Purederm Green Tea Collagen Sheet Mask

I kept the mask on for about 30 minutes and by the 20 min mark the mask was drying up & lifting off my face.

If we talk about the ‘feel’ of the essence itself, it is clear and has a very very faint fragrance (not bothersome whatsoever, infact very pleasant smelling).

My skin looked moisturised, hydrated and glowy, plus it din’t feel sticky or tacky at all once I removed the mask. (*BIG thumbs up*)

The essence is not sticky at all, and i LOVE that about this mask. If you have oily skin, I think this mask would be perfect.

Purederm Green Tea Collagen Sheet Mask

As for texture & fit, you can see the mask has slits so that the sheet mask can really sit on your skin & let it absorb all the goodness from the essence.


The texture is somewhat like Tissue papery …thick and not easy to tear.

Rating– 5/5

Love Love Love!

And before I sign off…. here’s funny me with the mask on… hope you have a good laugh & a great day ahead!

Much Love

Green T Cup | Best Find of 2016!

“At Christmas, tea is compulsory.

Relatives are optional.”
– Robert Godden


I can’t believe December is already here….this year just flew by! I hope you’re all doing very well & are in festive spirits ❤

Today I’m really excited to share with you my Best find for 2016… the Green T Cup!

Last week while Karan & I were visiting our parents, my mum introduced me to this amazing green tea.

Karan’s always loved green tea, but me on the other hand – I’ve never been a fan – simply because I think it’s boring and bitter….well, not anymore! Thanks to the Green T Cup I’m slowly developing a liking for this amazing tea for health.

Green T Cup

Let’s have a look at what the makers have to say:

‘Green T Cup is a patent pending, quality food product from Hale Beverages, a company with a vision to seek success through products that promote universal health and well-being.
Our manufacturing plant is based out of Chennai, South India while our base of organic farmers and suppliers are located around Coimbatore, and other places in the Southern peninsula.
Now you can enjoy a restful and rejuvenating sip of green tea, anytime and anywhere with Green-T-Cup! It comes with a special infusion layer all you have to do it pour hot water and wait a few minutes. Green Tea is rich in flavonoids, known for anti-oxidant action.’

Green T cup Ginger Singer

The flavor I tried was called Ginger-Tinger….isn’t that adorable?!

I love the packaging to begin with, it is absolute GENIUS! A cup with green tea at the bottom…. all you need to do is pour hot water and voila! your green tea is ready!

Green T cup packaging‘This flavor is one of the best combinations of Green T Cup. Ginger Tinger is best suited for people who have a tendency to suffer from nausea, dizziness or have hangovers. We are always advised to have ginger during a long travel to keep us away from motion sickness. So with this drink one can travel with taste and also avoid motion sickness.’

Green T cup

‘Discover the healing touch of Green T Cup with ginger. It helps relieve nausea, dizziness and motion sickness. It relieves hangovers and is great in treating cough and cold. A refreshing brew with many a boon.’

Green T cup

They have a variety of flavors to choose from, so there’s something for everyone here:

  1. Orange Bang
  2. Cardamom Touch
  3. Ginger Tinger
  4. Original Green
  5. Mint Magic
  6. Lemon Lift
  7. Jasmine Aroma

Not just that, you can also select the quantity of green tea cups in your order, ranging from 30/60/90/250 Cups.



In my opinion the Green T Cup is perfect for those who travel a lot, or for people who like to have tea at work. It’s a great way to boost your metabolism, lose weight, it’s good for the heart and overall wellbeing….so give one a try today…trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

I’d love to know whats your favorite green tea & how you like to have yours….so drop a comment down below and share the love!

Until we meet next


The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Care Range | Mini Review


Today we’re talking about some of the best anti-acne skin care products out there …

The Tea Tree Range by The Body Shop

If you’ve been with me for a while now, you’ll know that my skin has been troublesome for over a year. Out of nowhere I had this really terrible acne bout that to be honest has gotten better over the last couple of months (touchwood), but has still not completely left me alone (sadly)!

If you’ve ever experienced adult acne, you will know that it’s not easy to treat, and so when I was looking everywhere for answers as to why my skin was acting up & products that could help calm it down & maybe even treat my skin, I came across The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Care Range.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Care Range Review

These products have been a part of my skincare routine for months & months now, so I thought I’d share them with you.



The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub Review

“This skin-clearing facial scrub combines micro-fine exfoliants with bursting beads to help unclog pores without over-drying. Use a few times a week for skin that feels super clean and instantly smooth.

  • Suitable for blemished skin
  • Skin instantly feels soft, smooth and super clean
  • Pores look visibly clearer and face feels purified”


I’ve been religiously using this as a face-wash for the last year & it’s gentle enough for daily exfoliation. I use it everyday in the morning and follow it up with the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner.

It smells very fresh & invigorating…. wakes me up & really does what it says- make my skin feel squeaky clean!



The body shop tea tree skin clearing toner review

“This refreshing toner for blemished skin gives a beautifully matte, shine-free finish. 

  • Removes traces of make-up, cleanser and impurities 
  • Mattifying powders leave skin shine-free 
  • Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin”


This is Step 2 in my skin care routine. I usually shake the bottle to activate the toner and either take a splash on my bare (read CLEAN) hands & tap it into my skin using my fingers or I’ll douse a cotton pad with the toner & apply on my skin.

My skin definitely feels tingly when I use this toner & I’ve also noticed it feels dry…like it’s craving some moisture….so if you already have dry skin – beware!




“A light, non-oily moisturising lotion for blemished skin. For use after your Tea Tree cleansing regime.

  • Provides lightweight hydration
  • Easily absorbed
  • With shine control for a matte finish
  • Antibacterial action
  • Clinically proven to give clear skin”


“A lightweight, soothing gel-crème for blemished skin. 

  • Replenishes moisture overnight 
  • Leaves skin looking matte 
  • Antibacterial action 
  • Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin”


Step 3 is to follow up with a good moisturiser & give the skin a hydration boost. Both of these lotions are quite creamy in texture & sink into the skin quickly.


The Body Shop TEA TREE OIL

The body shop tea tree oil review
“Targeted care for blemished skin. Can be used direct on skin. 

  • Soothing 
  • Has antibacterial properties 
  • Does not dry out skin”


The last step in my daily skin care routine is this oil. I use it over active acne as well as blemishes. I feel it does quite a brilliant job at calming my breakouts & also helps them dry quicker.

Personally, I’ve mixed this oil in with my lotions for the day-time & also in my foundation several times & it does work beautifully.



The Body Shop TEA TREE FACE MASK review

“This instantly cooling face mask cleanses, soothes and refreshes the skin. 

  • Helps remove impurities 
  • Absorbs excess oil 
  • Soothes skin”


I love this mask for several reasons – yes, it’s instantly refreshing & cooling on the skin… it really soothes my skin & the best part about this tea tree mask is that it doesn’t dry & tug at your skin like traditional face masks.

I use it once a week & leave it on for about half an hour. You can either rinse it with lukewarm water or I feel personally for me it works better if I take a face towel, soak it in warm water & then gently rub it off my skin (it helps to exfoliate).



The body shop TEA TREE FLAWLESS BB CREAM review

“Perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes with our Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. This dual action cream gives you flawless coverage whilst tackling the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with purifying Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya. – Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered – Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion – 3 shades blend seamlessly into all skin tones for natural-looking coverage”


If i’m honest, I’m not in love with this bb cream. I use Shade 02 & feel that their shade range is very small so it’s difficult to find a perfect match. Also, I feel the formula to be quite drying & to top that it sticks to dry patches on the skin.

One way that this works for me is if I mix a few drops of the Tea Tree oil with it or the Day-time Lotion.

So that’ll be all for today…. let me know if you’ve tried any of these products or any other range from The Body Shop & what your experiences have been. I honestly LOVE this brand & I think I’m going to stick with it for a veryyyy long time 🙂




MOND’SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask | My Thoughts


Morning lovely people!

Carrying on with my sheet mask series, today I’ll be sharing with you my thoughts on the MOND’SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask from their Magic Skincare Series.

MOND'SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask Review

MOND’SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask can promote skin’s metabolism, balance skin nutriments and water, replenish skin fully, instantly make the loose and dry skin back to moist, tender, white and smooth, bringing you a charming appearance.

MOND'SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask Review

The highly effective anti-ageing facial mask is an intensive treatment which helps by lifting and nourishing the skin. It can promote the natural collagen production, give you a glowing look. This product can gradually release the nutrients under the body temperature and permeate quickly into the skin, providing skin with the nutrients and moisture needed.


MOND'SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask Review


What it promises:

  • Hydrate & moisturise dry skin
  • Make skin plump & elastic


Does it deliver? My thoughts?

Sort of.

Let me just be very frank with you guys – this mask does what it promises, but it’s not my favourite.

I’ll start with the positive – the sheet mask, like all the Mond’sub masks I’ve tried so far, is drenched in essence, which is a HUGE plus in my books. If i’m taking time out to pamper myself with a sheet mask ever so often, then I really want it to give my skin that moisture boost it promises… the MOND’SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask does that.

The mask has no fragrance, again a big plus, especially for those who don’t like to use scented skincare products.

The essence does not drip everywhere on you, neither does the mask slip or slide around – great if you’re the kind of girl who likes to do daily chores while having a mask on!


Now coming on to the reasons why it’s not my favourite or the best mask from Mond’sub – this mask was not a good fit for my face shape. The eye holes kept poking in the corner of my eyes and the mask literally covered my upper lip. I was worried about getting the essence in my mouth….not a great feeling.

One way to deal with that is to just close your eyes & lie down for 20 minutes while you have the mask on.

The other thing I wasn’t very happy about was that the essence was very sticky & I’ve said this before – having anything sticky/tacky sitting on my face bothers me in skincare products.

Having said that, I found a way to make it work – I placed my hands under cold running water and just massaged the sticky essence into my skin. The water helps the stickiness to go away and lets the essence penetrate into the skin.

I would recommend doing it 2-3 times in intervals until you feel all the essence sitting on your skin has been absorbed.

Once again, for all those wondering if this mask irritated my skin or broke me out – No it did not 🙂

MOND'SUB Hydrating & Moisturizing Facial Mask Review


Rating: 2.5/5


Would I recommend/repurchase this product?

Repurchase – If I’m honest, no.

Recommend – If you have very dry skin that needs the stickiness to really deal with dry/flaky patches, then Yes.

If you’ve got oily/combo skin & are not a fan of sticky essence, then No.

I think the  Mond’sub Hyaluronic Acid Instant Cool Moisturizing & Brightening Facial Sheet Mask is AMAZEBALLS & would be my personal pick over this one.

First Impression + Review | Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask


We’re a few days into the week & it’s time to put on a mask & spa on!

Today I tried a new brand of sheet masks from Korea called Dermal & so this post is going to be all about my First Impressions/Review of the Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask

Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask


About the Brand:

“DERMAL is a popular brand with young people, because of its fine quality and moderate prices, nowadays has become Korea’s top-selling skin-care product and manufacturer, its natural ingredients, rich in fruit and herbal extracts with different effective in improving skin quality. Last but not least, Dermal granted Quality Awards in Korea, it is no doubt about quality standard.”

Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask Review

First things first, I really liked the packaging of these masks… very simple yet colourful & bright.

As you can see in the image, the mask has three specific benefits mentioned on it –

Nutrition – Moisturizing – Refining



DERMAL ESSENCE MASK is a new essence mask which specially formulates cosmetics to penetrate highly concentrated active ingredients into the skin while keeping air out of the skin completely thus, it makes your tired skin moistened, elastic, clear and relieves your skin from stress.



Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask Ingredients


What it promises:

  • Contains Royal Jelly extract which is a complex of various kinds of micro elements such as protein, fat, carbohydrate, water & etc, thus , it provides nutrition to tired and troubled skin and keeps the skin always healthy and soft.
  • Vitamin E and Collagen- provides skin nutrition & makes it appear healthy and elastic.
  • Acts as a Mini Cleanup


Does it deliver? My thoughts?

Totally! I fell in LOVE with this mask.

The sheet mask was drenched in essence, but not the kinds that starts to drip all over you & make a mess. The essence on this mask was clear & thick in consistency.

The quality & texture of the mask is good – it’s thick, but very soft at the same time.

Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Sheet Mask

I think as for fit, this is probably the BEST fitting mask for me so far from the ones I’ve tried. As you can see in the pictures, the sheet has slits in various places for the mask to lay on your skin perfectly.

For once the eye & mouth holes on a mask were Perfect for my face! The corners of the eye holes lay just ‘right’ on my face so there was no discomfort or pokiness around the eyes.

The Dermal Royal Jelly Sheet Mask feels instantly cooling & soothing on the skin. I felt no irritation or itchiness the whole time I had this on.

Once my 25 minutes were up, I took the mask off and patted the excess essence on my skin….& my skin just drank it up!

I also love the fact that the essence is not sticky at all, so when you remove the sheet mask you won’t even feel any product sitting on your skin.

Now as for what I did NOT like about this sheet mask – the fragrance. Right when I opened the pack I could immediately smell the fragrance & to be honest not a natural, pleasant fragrance…this smelt quite like a nail polish.

It smells nothing like honey, so be prepared for that. The scent however goes away in 2 minutes or less, so it’s not a deal-breaker for me personally.

Rating– 4.5/5


Would I recommend this product?

Absolutely. I’m going to get my hands on plenty more of these Dermal Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Masks.

And last but not the least, here’s a totally embarrassing (read Scary!) picture of me with the mask on!
