Empro Cosmetics BonBrow, Touch Up After A Month

Last month I went for Empro Bonbrow and a month later, I went for a touch up session which I definitely need it because my brows look way too natural from what I have expected. From my purchase, I am entitled with a free touch up session.

The process goes the same as how I had described it in my previous post. I’m so glad to meet my artist again, May as she is very patient to hear what I want to archive for me brows. Since the outcome turned out so natural, I did share with her I want my brows look even thicker and flatter. Basically, like the current trending Korean brows. This would be able to shorten my oblong face shape.

This is how it looks like after the touch up. It looks really thick like Shin Chan which I didn’t mind because I know I will go through the process of peeling and the brow shape would shrink.

After a week, this is how it looks like. Definitely this looks so much better and from this photo, the shade may look uneven but it’s quite alright in real. I do notice where my left brow seem to be higher than the right and it’s some area are not quite filled at the top part of my brows. The front of the brows seems shorter, slightly more further from my nose bridge.

I did share my concern to May on what if I am still not happy with my brows. She mentioned where I could come back a month later to get them fixed without charges. I think I would need to look out for her again to fix my left brow.

This is May Yong, where I promised in my previous post that I would get a photo with her. She is the Senior Artist as well as Assistant Supervisor of Empro Mid Valley. She is highly recommended for her service, patience and experience. Feel free to look out for her if you would like to get your brows done.

Review: Fanipia Cucumber Mask Pack

It has been a while since I wrote for Korea Cosmetics when  I was their Official Beauty Blogger. You could check on the articles I wrote for them, here. This was given complimentary upon working with them to be part of the team and yes, I have been reserving this Fanipia Cucumber Mask Pack for some time now. Finally, I have used it.

Cucumber is known for its hydrating properties and this is not your ordinary sheet mask. Its the world first double layered mask pack and of course , it’s made in Korea.

I found the closes description of Fanipia Cucumber Mask Pack online and its the same as now it is printed on the back of the pack.  Its suitable for all skin types and contains hyaluronic acid for better and lasting moisturizing effect.

The mask sure look ordinary with film protection. It doesn’t have much left over essence because there wasn’t any dripping either.

How to Use

  • Step One – Cleanse face and apply skin lotion (which I believe its referring to toner)
  • Step Two – Discard mask from its pack and apply it over the face. Leave it for 20 minutes.
  • Step Three – Remove the mask, pat the leftover essence on the face and continue with skin care regime

The definition of the double layer mask is that it has a thin layer of plastic above the mask. I was first confused didn’t know which side should I put on. The plastic doesn’t slip and embedded with the sheet mask firmly but because of so, it doesn’t adhere onto the face properly. I did slit on the nostril area to fit it nicely.

My skin is much more moisturize and seems real shiny. I was worried thinking that it’s oil but it doesn’t feel oily and there isn’t any residue left on my fingers when I tried wiping it. Looking at my skin condition like so, the next thing I was worried if my skin could still absorb my skincare products. It wasn’t a problem after all!

Verdict?

I like that the mask made my skin glowed so much right after removing it but it doesn’t fit nicely onto my face. I had to keep monitoring if there is air bubbles underneath the mask. With my concern if my skin could still absorb my skincare products, it drinks up all my skincare product like how it normally should. However, after using this mask I did get two small inflamed breakout the next day.

Price: n/a

Weight: 22g

Collection Status: Permanent

Availability: Not in Malaysia

PROs:

  •  Glowing skin
  • Moisturized skin
  • Skin is able to absorb skin care after the mask

CONs:

  • Doesn’t fit onto the face nicely
  • Broke out the next day
  • Not available in Malaysia
  • Contains Paraben

My Rating: 3.8/5
