Review: For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Bio Cellulose Mask Soothes Skin After Laser, Reduces Redness & Acne Marks

This would be my first time to use For Beloved One skincare and it’s Melasleep Whitening Bio-Cellulose mask. I really didn’t know what to expect from this mask besides whitening until I read more about it from it’s description.

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask

‘Widely recommended by dermatologists and celebrities alike, this was the first biocellulose mask to appear on the market. Made of nano-scale organic fibres, it has the highest possible affinity to the skin, making it possible to achieve essence absorption 30 times higher than other masks. The Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask also contains Lumiskin and Melaclear2, two patented skin-whitening formulas to instantly reveal bright and luminous skin.

Tip: Suitable for skin that has gone through intense treatments such as laser or IPL
Application Time: 15-20min’

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask Inside

In the box there is 3 pieces of the mask, an information sheet of how the mask was made, the function of the mask and direction to use and VIP Product Identity Card. Since this mask is suitable for those who had underwent laser, this benefits me as a month ago I had undergone quite an intensive laser over my face.

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask Ingredients

The mask contains Lumiskin, Melaclear2, Matrixyl, Barbados cherry extract (Acerola Extract), liquorice extract (Glycyrrhiza Glabra Extract), Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic acid which is beneficial for the skin. Hence to this, it also contains alcohol and paraben.

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask In The Pack

Upon opening the pack, the essence it all over it. Milky and slightly thick in texture like water-based cream. I know this is going to sound weird but it smells like the yummy original Vitagen.

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask Application

To use this mask has it special technique but it isn’t complicated at all.

  1. Take the elastic and transparent bio-cellulose mask in the middle.
  2. Apply the wet side (the one adhesive to semi-transparent paper foil) on face. Cover those eyes to enjoy the relaxation and benefit.
  3. Take off the mask after 15-20 minutes, no need to rinse and continue with regular skincare procedure.

FOR BELOVED ONE – Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask Before & After

I could say it’s quite a difference after using the mask 3 times and of course, in between I went for Fractional CO2 laser which also contributes changes of my skin. I would say where my skin is much more even toned, less red and less troubled.

Above all…

The mask helped in reducing skin redness especially at the sides of my nose and acne marks. It also helped to de-puffed my tired eyes and the mask also provides sufficient moisture throughout 8 hours. By the next day when I woke up, my skin felt dry and tight. The essence that was left behind on my skin does not feel sticky after massaging until it was fully absorbed by my skin. It is quite pricey for 3 pieces of mask but if you are willing to invest more, why not give this a try? I recommend this as it also helped to sooth my skin after the laser.

Price: MYR145.00 (3sheets)

Availability: Sephora stores

PROs:

  • Soothes skin after laser
  • Reduces skin redness and acne marks
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Less troubled skin
  • De-puffs eye bag

CONs:

  • Moisture hold up to 8 hours
  • Could be pricey

Review: Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Improves Skin Metabolism, Keeps Skin Moisturized & Supple

Sleeping mask is a great way to escape extended skincare regime at night as they are packed with great skin benefit properties and be able to lock in to our skin in longer hours. With this, I have tried Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask to allow my skin to indulge it’s goodness without much fuss before bed time.Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask

‘An ultra hydrating leave-on gel mask applied just before bedtime. The H.A. Water Sleeping Mask penetrates the skin immediately upon application, infusing it with ultra moisturizing hyaluronic acid while you sleep. A multi blend of essential extracts promote a deep, comforting sleep, leaving your skin ultimately revitalized, hydrated and refreshed.’

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Box

The shape of the box is rather interesting, it is irregular yet unique and almost made it to a diamond shape. Red is the color they would normally use for their box packaging and this has been packaged in the right way where it brings exclusivity elements to it.

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Jar

The sleeping mask comes in a big white jar which portray a very much clean design as to compare with it’s box.

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Texture

The gel texture absorbs easily into the skin, it does feels watery at first but blends in very well. The scent is very natural combination of flower and honey yet subtle.

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Ingredients

This sleeping mask does contain fragrance and  they are free from alcohol and paraben which is definitely a plus point and much skin friendly to those who have sensitive skin. I do noticed that they contain quite a bit of natural extract such as honey, cactus, pear, passion fruit, st. john’s wort, chamomile, mallow, sage and elder tree.

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Before & After 4 Weeks

Throughout the journey of using this mask, it has been treating me well keeping my skin well moisturised without any dry patches. At the earlier journey, I had some dry patches on my chin area for no reason. With the help of this mask, the dry patches no longer there. I do sebum extraction weekly and this mask helps to promote skin healing at a better metabolism. As for week 2 and 4, I just had the sebum extraction done. On Week 3, you are able to see that my skin heals up very much from week 2.

Unico H.A. Water Sleeping Mask Before & After

This mask has been keeping my skin moisture on par and supple however this didn’t help very much in terms of reducing skin oiliness or sebum production. I have yet to experience any irritation (fingers crossed) from using this up until today.

Above all…

I love that this mask has saved my skin from the dry patches where I was so irritated and friends was asking what’s going on with my skin when the dry patch happened. After using this mask, it is no longer there and my makeup has been smoother. My skin has never been dry and been healing at a better metabolism from the sebum extraction. I did wish that they could also accommodate to reduce skin oiliness and that would be perfect sleeping mask.

  • Helped to relief skin dry patch

Review: Sephora Ginseng Mask, It’s Medicinal Benefits Heals My Skin & Lessen Skin Redness

Speaking of ginseng, it is very well known for it’s medicinal benefits and nowadays, they are commonly found in cosmetics, skincare and supplements. This time round, I have tried Sephora Ginseng Mask which I’m quite impressed of. Let me just share with you my thoughts on this mask.

Sephora Ginseng Mask

‘A new item in the Made In Sephora range, the Ginseng mask is also one of the best-selling variants in the Sephora Natural Therapy Mask collection. A fibre mask rich with ginseng root extract, it tones and revitalises skin, restoring its suppleness. Ginseng root extract also provides a tightening effect to energise and “re-plump” the complexion. The fibre mask hugs facial contours perfectly ensuring your skin fully absorbs the nutrients from the mask.’

Sephora Ginseng Mask Pack

Sephora Ginseng mask comes in a round card pack and in Sephora, you’ll be able to find a variety of mask like this with different key ingredients. They come in bright colors for it’s packaging and for ginseng, it would be bright yellow. At the back of the mask describes the function and benefits of the mask and it is made in China even Sephora in China has them in store.

Sephora Ginseng Mask Inside

Upon opening the card pack, there is a pocket with an image of the key ingredient where the actual mask pack is placed .

Sephora Ginseng Mask Pack 2

This is how the actual pack look like, behind of it there’s instruction on how to use the sheet mask. Of course, best to use it after you have cleansed your skin.

Sephora Ginseng Mask Close Up

The sheet mask is soaked with adequate essence and I’m amazed that the sheet mask is imprinted with Sephora logo all over it. the next thing that I’m worried if it will imprint over my skin.

Sephora Ginseng Mask How To

To use is really simple, just a few steps would do.

  1. Unfold the mask carefully.
  2. Place the mask over cleansed face.
  3. The mask is stretchable, therefore pull the mask slightly against your face to fit according to your face shape.
  4. Leave the mask on for up to 20 minutes.

Upon using the mask, it has a faint scent of ginseng bitterness which reminded me of how I used to consume bird nest with ginseng in it and rock sugar.  It is yummy and it tingles my tastebuds for this mask scent.

Sephora Ginseng Mask Before & After

After 20 minutes, the immediate effect that I noticed is my skin is much brighter and plumped. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tacky and it allows my skin to absorb my skin care products well. There was no imprints of Sephora logo on my skin at all, I’m relieved!

Above all…

The mask is thick enough to avoid any tear when I was unfolding the mask and I loved how the mask is stretchy that it sort of ‘wraps’ onto my skin. By all means, it fits according to my face shape firmly without any air bubbles trapped. I did sebum extraction a day before and the mask did help to assist in healing my skin because on the next day, I do notice that my skin redness is much lessen. Another bonus point is that it doesn’t leave any stickiness behind after using the mask.

I would say Sephora sheet masks are pretty affordable in terms of price and the results delivered. I’m keen to try more of their mask! If you buy them in bundle, it’s much more valuable.

Price: RM10 – 1 sheet / RM40 – 5 sheets

Availability: Sephora stores

PROs:

  • Easy to use
  • Stretchy feature fits firmly onto face shape accordingly
  • Does not leave any sticky residue
  • Skin plumped and moisturized
  • Heals skin and lessen redness
  • Affordable

CONs:

  • None so far!

I’ve used about 2-3 pumps for my entire face for each treatment and use a old foundation brush to spread it thinly and evenly. Despite having the cinnamon scent, I didn’t have much problem with it and as warn from the product description itself, this does tingle. Most of the time, I felt it around my nose and cheek area where is is much more sensitive. It was tricky at first to apply the slimy product texture but it spreads over like how butter goes on bread. Just leave it for 5-10 minutes and wash off with luke warm water. Depending on my skin behaviour, I use once or twice a week. I usually use twice when my skin feels more oily and exposed to dirt.

Sloane Inc. Skin Superfood Pumpkin Enzyme Purifying Peel  Before & After 2

It has been 4 weeks after I have tried this Sloane Inc.

In long term, it also helped to exfoliate the acne marks and improved skin texture.

Sloane Inc. Skin Superfood Pumpkin Enzyme Purifying Peel  Before & After

On the before and after shows quite a big difference in terms of skin clarity and seems like the pores aren’t as dilated as before. My skin seems to be clearer over the time. I had the breakout on my chin area from another product, please bare with me.

Above all…

I love this peel as how it does as a quick fix to clear the skin. I often do sebum extraction myself and using this peel prior to the extraction, makes it more easier to remove the sebum. Otherwise, I will suffer the post-extraction pain. The mattifying effect will be on average as I do still feel oily the next day, trust me I have very oily skin on my t-zone. The comparison of before and after just amazes me because of how clear my skin looked and looked very much energized. Considering that this is a clinical skincare from the clinic itself, I do think that the price is still reasonable.
