First Impression: L’herboflore Tremella Moisturising Eye Mask


This mask is drenched with essence that I’m surprised it doesn’t slip down my face. I got this mask for free walking along the train station. They were just giving this sachet for us to try. Anyway, the mask is quite broad. So it will fit pretty much everyone. The top part is great as it follow the curve of the eye shape. The bottom is slightly weird. Cause the shape sort of look like a bat, it doesn’t really fit around my nose. The whole mask covered cheeks too. 

Not sure how long I was supposed to put this on as there is no instruction stating the number. The words are all in Chinese, but there’s no time given. After about 15 minutes, my face kind of got irritated by this. It just itchy. I wanted to take this out but I wanted another 5 minutes as the mask was still rather wet. 

Overall not my fav kind of eye mask, but it’s free so why not. It is moisturising and I can feel the effect working to keep my eyes fresh. Not sure how. So this is not a good mask for night time. I guess I wouldn’t mind this to use in the morning when I’m feeling rather sleepy; just that I wouldn’t use this more than 15 minutes. 

Shills Party Time Anti-Wrinkle & Repair Black Eye Mask

This is such a cooling mask. Plus the mask looks like I am going for a mascarade party. I just think it’s slightly too big for me. But it’s ok, it still fit quite nicely. I like this as it’s quite moisturising. Not sure about the antiwrinkle part, but this mask is filled with essence that it just kept dropping onto my cheek. So I just spread it in the corner of my lips. The essence is to prevent wrinkles anyway. This cost me NT29. So it’s about $1.35. I do enjoy using this mask. So it’s a really good for value mask. 

SK-II Signs Eye Mask

Until now whenever I use sheet eye mask, I wonder which end will be nearer to my nose. The good thing about SK2 is that there is a lot of pictures and reviews online. So in this case, the smaller area will be closer to the nose. The mask doesn’t fit my eye but oh well. 

I like that each pack comes in a tray. And the patches are covered by a white plastic. So you can sort of just pinch the plastic to get sheer out and stick on your undereye. You won’t get sticky fingers. It’s good. 

The mask itself is alright. Not that fantastic. Even with constant use, I don’t really see the difference. Oh well, at $8 per pack, that’s the price I bought it for, I don’t think it’s worth. But I’m sure it has some benefits and stuff which I probably won’t be able to see until I’m older. That probably it. 

PureHeal’s Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch

Love jelly masks. It’s so fun to put on. Very cooling and you will know when it’s time to remove cause you can feel the gel getting thinner. 

The problem I have with this kind of eye masks is that I’m not sure if the large part is suppose to be inner side or the outer. Google always show different type of ways. Maybe there is no right or wrong. 

Anyway, this doesn’t help do anything to my black eyes. The only thing that it is good at is keeping my undereye cooling. It just feels nice on the skin. 

First Impression: Lovemore Snail Mucin Eye Repairing Mask

This is such a neat idea, but such a pain to put on. It’s messy and it doesn’t fit my face right. But once you get over the mess, then it’s actually quite nice. The mask is translucently thin. It’s cooling but I don’t see much a different using this. It’s just relaxing I guess. And it stuck on your face, so no worry of it falling off. But the mess, I rather use a one sided gel kind of patch. 

First Impression: Gatineau Intesive Treatment for Eye Area

 
This is one of the nicest eye mask I’d ever try. It’s very cooling and it’s not a big mask. It has 5% collagen, making it very wet but it’s not messy to use. At least the essence doesn’t drip. What I like about this is just it’s cooling and very relaxing. It made you feel really sleepy. Like the mask it’s heavy, so you really just feel like doing nothing. 

By the way they said you are not suppose to use eye cream or mask so close to your eyes, like I had on here. With cream it spread, so too close will make the product go to your eye which is bad. But with mask is it the same case? I always have the problem of wanting to use the mask as close to the eye as possible. I guess it’s bad. 

Revitalizing Gel Eye Strips

Cooling eye mask – yes, please! I’ve been quite lazy to do masks lately. Even though this year I promise myself that I will post up 2 masks review per month just so that I will used up my sheet masks and used up my samples. But I’m me, so I rather use eye masks as it’s less messy but I am still pampering my skin. Or at least the eyes area.
I like the cooling effect. That’s about it. Cause I don’t really see much difference using this. I guess dark circle will always be dark circle. But I don’t have puffy eyes when using this, so I can’t test that affect out. Psychologically I am happy with the product, as I really can never tell with eye creams and masks.

Nu-pore Moisturizing Under Eye Treatment

nu-poreThis is just so huge. See the lady in the packaging, it is not suppose to be huge. Felt cheated. It feels cooling and yet this irritate my skin after 5 minutes. So it really is a waste on me. There are 2 pairs, and I used both of them as I don’t want to waste it. I did bought it at iherb. It was only US$.50 as it was a sampler pack. Oh well, no regret.

Eye Puffiness Minimizing Patches

Eye bags be gone. It doesn’t but it helps to reduce them.

The patch is really huge. So it will accommodate anyone. It is cooling and helps to reduce puffiness. I feel the same could be done using cold spoons or tea bags. But with this it is just so much more easier. Just open, peel and apply. I think that’s the only advantage in using store bought products. The lesser mess is convenient. I wouldn’t repurchase this as puffiness not as a big problem for me anymore. Just use ice cubes and you’re done, save your money.

October Black Box

I heard of Black Box a long time ago, and I signed up for it. But I don’t really know how it worked. Cause some people actually managed to get this free box, and I wanted one too. Last month they emailed us saying how their website has change and you can ballot for a free box. You can secure a free box just by paying for $6 shipping. They only had 500 boxes for that.

I wasn’t very interested in the October box when I saw the participating brands. So I wouldn’t pay $6 for it. But I did try to ballot for it. I did not know I was successful as all I did was click the link and put my email address and they told me I am eligible for balloting. Then I had to log in but I did not know my password and I’m just lazy to check my email.

Anyway there was another email saying everything was sold out and 1500 boxes were successfully given out to the winners. A few days later I got an email saying my box will be sent to me between a certain time. It was like winning a lottery. How awesome!

So this is the box. Sorry for the longwinded story, but that’s practically how Black Box work. If you’re in Singapore, just sign up, try your luck. The next one is for December box, but the balloting has not start? I am not sure. I only got the email for securing the box.
So far, all I did was do a short survey online after I got the box to win full-sized products. That’s it. They never ask you to do anything, not even ask you to refer to friends. But good things must be shared right? And it’s unisex, so it’s really for everyone. Then again it’s free. You can always pass it to anyone of you don’t like it.

So I received a card with the description of the product like where to buy, how to use and also some discount coupons.
Lovemore Snailmucin Repairing Eye Patch.

VDL CC Cream has SPF 25. Have not try this yet, but it’s great to have for upcoming mini vacations.

Bifesta Cleansing Lotion (sebum) is a really cool product. It’s a makeup remover and cleanser at the same time. You don’t need to wash your face after using this. Just rinse it if you want. A product after my own heart. The samples come with cotton pads, but I think the full size is just the lotion.

Darlie Enamel Protect Toothpaste who doesn’t love free toothpaste? It’s a travel size which probably cost $2 if you buy from Watsons.

Zappy Sampler Pack now this is cool.
20131105-181049.jpg
Look at that, it’s all in wipes form and it has different type of purpose. I like the sunscreen one. How cool to use sunscreen with a wipe. It’s just so easy and unique. Plus it’s SPF50. I also like the insect repellent and well everything. Cause it’s all really useful to me. Per pack will cost around $2 – $5.50 and different type of wipes will contain different quantity. But I really think Zappy is really neat. Love it. Great to have for traveling or on the go.

Lastly, I got Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil which is a multi-purpose dry oil. I haven’t have this so it’s nice to get it. It can be use for the face, body or hair. This is shimmery which I think will be nice to use for parties while keeping your skin moisturized. I have an idea, put it all over your body and you can be the Cullen for Halloween, even though it’s over but I only think of it. Anyway, I like to put this at the ends of my hair to give them an extra sparkle. It doesn’t has a scent or anything though.

So ya that’s it for my free Black Box.
