Laniege – Water Sleeping Mask Review

Laniege – Water Sleeping Mask Review

aa1

So…I used this sleeping mask wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy before sleeping mask was even hyped or Sephora even carried it. Basically, my point is, I’ve used this for a lightyear. I can literally write a 500 page essay on it, if you wanted some opinion on it then you came to the right person.

Function:
Hydrates skin over-night (yes, you can sleep with it on…think of it as a cream instead)

Cost:
$25/jar (70mL)

Does it Work?:
Yes but No….? Despite all the 5 star reviews from others here’s why…

The reason why I kept using this for so long was because EVERY MORNING it gives me an impression that my skin is very well-hydrated. I may wake up and look like The Grudge, but at least I would be one with dewy, clear skin. Now, the problem is, its only an IMPRESSION, meaning it does not actually hydrate your skin, even if it does, its very minimal. It is more like a dewy film on top of your face??? Anyway, it just doesn’t improve your skin. Be it summer or winter, the moment you washed off the sleeping mask your face returns back to normal, as if you had never used the sleeping mask.

Please understand that its very hard for products to give LASTING changes. If a product can give you good results that last throughout the day, that would already be considered very good. But, honestly, why do I need a product that only works when I sleep? Whose gonna look at me when i’m sleeping??? That’s why I stopped using it… Its basically an unnecessary luxury item.

Would I Buy Again?:
I bought this over and over again for years…until I had finally found my favorite serum. It literally put this sleeping mask to shame so I discontinued it without a second thought.

Kate Somerville – Eradikate Acne Treatment Review

How to Use:
Use a Qtip and dip into bottle until you reach the pink powder. Then simply dab it on your pimple/red spots. DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE.

Cost: 
$31/bottle

Does it work?: 
Yes, it does work!

For small pimples or red spots, this only takes 1-3 days to fade away the redness.

For cystic acne or pimples with white stuff sticking out, this will NOT clear it, this powder will only make it mature faster. Meaning, you can pop your pimple a few day earlier. Never pop a pimple that has not FULLY MATURED! Or you will get scars.

For blackhead/whitehead pimple (you feel something inside your pimple but no white stuff is sticking out) you can use this, it will also fade your redness faster and your pimple will shrink faster. However, you still have to get the stuff inside out. (Things don’t magically disappear from inside of your skin)

Blackhead/whitehead pimple or cystic acne usually cause scars that take roughly a year to fade entirely. So be careful with what you put on your face, because some acne treatments can give you recurrent acne if you use it wrongly.

How I Use This Pimple Powder Solution:
First of all, what works for me may not work for you.

I only use this solution AFTER I get facial done in spa (beauty assistants who manually poke out all your blackhead and pimple that have matured). At nighttime, after you wash your face, put on your usual toner (I only use hydrating toner). Then use a Qtip and dip a tiny amount of pink powder and swish it over your red spots. Make sure that the pink powder on your face is thin enough that you can still see your red spots clearly. (If you put too much on, it will block your pore and you will get recurrent acne). The redness and acne will be gone within 2-3 days, if you are young and do intense exercise it can be gone within 1 day. Also remember to use one qtip per red spot to not cross-contaminate, especially for people with cystic acne.

Will I Buy Again?:
Yes…I usually buy korean brands because they are cheaper and they work just the same…however I do realize the 15$ ones don’t work as well as the 20$+

I will review other pink pimple powder later…
