What is a Face Mask?

Even if I love cosmetics, there is still one product in the market that I am not yet fully aware of. Face Mask. What is it? And what is it used for?

My collection of face masks.
The photo shown above is my collection of face masks. The Essence Mask Vitamin A on the upper left is from Etude House and I bought that to complete a purchase requirement for a BDJ coupon. The Pearl Extract Mask on the center is also from Etude House, which I got from a BDJ Rendevous as a giveaway. The upper right Royal Jelly Mask (also form Etude House) was given by my colleagues who visited Korea. The bottom left Lettuce and Cucumber Essence Mask from Skin Food was also given by a friend. I acquired the Lemon Face Mask with Kim Hyun Joong print from The Face Shop Club 20 VIP membership

These masks just piled up in my drawer. Well, that was until I saw Kaika's video on YouTube about skin care for cosplayers. Kaika is a Singaporean cosplayer and I follow her blog at http://thecosplaychronicles.blogspot.com/  She mentioned using face masks the night before a cosplay event for better skin condition. See the video below:




I am so happy to know that my growing collection of face masks can help me attain a good skin for cosplay! It is something that is really of use to me since I just started out from this hobby. 

After seeing that video, I tried putting on masks twice this week. The first one that I used was the Essence Mask Vitamin A from Etude House. It left my skin moisturized and smooth. The effect of it was so powerful and it left me impressed.

The second one that I tried was the Lemon Face Mask from The Face Shop. It had a different feel on my skin and it dried a little after 30 minutes. However, when I removed the mask, I saw a layer of dirt on the linen where my face was! Imagine all that chunk of dirt was on my face! Afterwards, my skin became bright and radiant! 

These two face masks gave out different result. I guess this cosmetic product also has specific functions that treat skin according to its needs. Face masks give the skin an instant boost, may it be hydration, cleansing, or brightening.. Hmmm... I'm suddenly curious at what the other face masks in my collection do.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
