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.

  • Soothes skin after laser
  • Reduces skin redness and acne marks
  • Evens out skin tone

It comes with a medium pan sized of 3.2 grams and I would consider this in a handy size because it is travel friendly and still be able to make space for other products in my makeup pouch.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Blush Orange Punchy Sunbaked Ingredients

At the back of the blusher is where the description is stuck upon and the description stripped open where inside is the ingredients listing. It is paraben and alcohol free. However it does contain silica.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Blush Orange Punchy Sunbaked Up Close

The blusher is imprint with Sephora logo and even at the close up, I could tell that this blusher could go smoothly and softly over the skin. It doesn’t have much scent to it, say yay for those sensitive nose and skin.

It goes really pretty over the swatch, just like it’s name it an orange-peachy tone blusher. Great for fair and tan skin. It finishes off powdery matte smooth.

Applying this blusher is easy. Simply pick a normal or angled blush brush, swirl over the blusher and dust over the cheeks and lightly apply around the face as well as nose to balance out the entire skin tone. Apply more if you desire heavier blushing effect.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Blush Orange Punchy Sunbaked Before & After

I would normally go light with blushers, sometimes almost look like I did not apply any. However without blusher, I could look pale. Even though I have applied lightly over my cheeks for this blusher,  you could tell how well and smooth it went on my skin. Definitely look very natural.

Above all…

Not only that they are affordable, this is better than I expected. They are well pigmented, unscented with no paraben as it’s ingredients. Apply lightly and voila, you get that natural blushing effect. So natural that you could hardly tell that there’s blusher until you make a comparison.

Review: SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume – Dramatic Volume Mascara, Lasting Up to 9 Hours for Definition and Length

If you are looking for some basic defining mascara, this could be the one for you. This time round of mascara that I’m trying would be SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume – Dramatic Volume Mascara. A mascara that I would think works averagely on me but I would still pick this among my mascaras recently.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume Mascara 2

‘What it is:
A volumizing mascara that delivers pumped-up, glamorous lashes.

What it does:
This mascara’s unique triple load brush intensely coats lashes in one easy stroke for a full, luscious look. The thick, Ultra Black formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid—an ingredient recognized for its moisturizing properties. Use the brush’s reservoirs to intensify lashes from root to tip, separate lashes with the “spiked” areas, or achieve a curved effect by pressing the brush lightly against the tips of the upper lashes.

What else you need to know:
Tested under ophthalmological control, this mascara was found suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Research results:
Proven to be 82% effective according to a scientific test that measured volume after 6 brush strokes were administered to 64 false lashes.’

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume MascaraThis mascara is quite bulky in size and comes with quilted design which definitely reminds me of Chanel bags where it portrays luxury and elegance.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume Mascara Brush
The brush is spiky especially over the tip of it. It is not scary at all, in fact it is very useful throughout the application process.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume Mascara Application

The spiky brush helps very well in grabbing each of my lashes and the tip goes well over the lashes at the inner corner of my eyes. However because the brush is so straight and the formula, there are times I had accidentally smudge it on my face. Nevertheless, applying this mascara can be tricky at times.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume Mascara Before & After

Here is a comparison of before and after, it lifted my lashes quite a bit as well as well to darken it. Though it claimed to be outrageous volume, I longed for it could not witness the expected results. It seemed to define my lashes as the mascara brush was able to grab my lashes well (even the tiniest) and separates them evenly.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume - Dramatic Volume Mascara Ingredients

The mascara does contain alcohol and do remember that a little alcohol in the product is fine for bacteria killing and sanitizing purposes. However, if you do have weak lashes or sensitive skin, I would not suggest to use anything that contains alcohol. It does contain castor oil that helps to nourish lashes and they are also known to promote lash growth.

Above all…

I love the mascara for the fact that it dries quickly despite of it’s wet formula and I do find that it gives better lash definition as well as length to my lashes. The pigment is opaque enough to darken my lashes. I do face challenges during the application because of the length of the spikes from the brush where it happens to touch on my skin. However, the tip was useful in reaching out tiny lashes at the both inner and outer corner of the eyes. This smudges at the lower outer corner of my eyes but it wasn’t very bad, it looks as though I have light black eye shadow applied. This happens when I wear the mascara for more than 10 hours and it doesn’t happen at all under 9 hours. Also, removing it was never a fuss at all. It comes of easily with my cleanser.

Price: MYR72.00

Availability: Sephora stores nationwide

PROs:

  • Better lash definition
  • Great lash separation
  • Lengthier lashes
  • Quick dry formula
  • Dark pigments
  • Last up to 9 hours
  • Easy removal

CONs:

  • Smudges by the 10th hour
  • Tricky application

My Rating:4.7/5
