Getting #Sheetfaced with MOND’SUB Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3-in-1 Mask

‘The pearl is the Queen of gems,

         and the gem of Queens.’

Did you ever think jewels could be used as skin care?!

I never did….so when I came across the MOND’SUB Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3-in-1 Mask I was really interested to experiment and see how it would benefit the skin.

On reading a bit more, I learned that pearls are rich in minerals, collagen and amino acids, hydrating and enriching your skin. So let’s see how this 3-in-1 3D Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening Mask by MOND’SUB fared!

This 3-in-1 mask is a 2 step process – The first step is to apply the 3D Hanging Ears,Face and Neck Mask for 15-20 minutes, followed by the second step, which is to apply the Vitamin C Essence on the skin.

Does it deliver? My thoughts?

This time it was not me, but my sister who tried the mask on and it was not only easy to use, but so much fun for my her! Not to forget, she did see immediate results in her skin. This 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 skin 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 Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3-in-1 Mask Review

For those who try the MOND’SUB Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3-in-1 Mask for the first time, don’t be surprised with the shape of the mask. As you can see in the image above, it’s larger than a regular sheet mask, because it is a 3D Hanging Ears,Face and Neck Mask, which means that the mask will cover your entire face, ears as well as your neck.

The slits/holes on the sides that you see on the sheet mask is where you tuck the mask behind your ears so that the sheet masks can adhere to your skin and stay put on your face while you move around.

The texture and feel of the mask was very soft, like all Mond’sub masks…. it had no fragrance (I always say thats a huge plus) and the sheet itself was thick and soaked in essence…so much essence that my sister almost bathed in it and still had some left in the packaging! 

MOND'SUB Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3-in-1 Mask Review

As for the feel of the essence, this one is quite sticky, which again is perfect for those who have dry, dehydrated skin (much like my sister’s).

Results, as I mentioned before, were immediate. She could feel that her skin was hydrated and plump, felt soft and supple and there were no signs of dry patches on her skin anymore. She said the essence was so effective that she went without using a moisturiser all day!!! Now THAT’S what I call a mask your money’s worth!

Rating– 5/5

Would I recommend/repurchase this product?

Yes 🙂

Before I sign off, here’s the mandatory picture wearing the sheet mask…. how cute is she?!

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.

purederm-green-tea-collagen-mask-closer-look

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.

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

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

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!

 

The Body Shop TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING LOTION & TEA TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION

The Body Shop TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING LOTION & TEA TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION

“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”

AND

“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

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

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 🙂

 

xoxo
