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.

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
