Skincare update! [November, 2018]



From right to left:


♡  the Saem Natural Skin-fit Mask (Tomato) ♡

What it is: A really thin mask containing tomato. Not much is available on the masks, but a search shows that tomatoes are good for brightening skin and keeping skin moisturized.

Price: Got them at $1.30 each from this Qoo10 shop! There is a $5 shipping rate that is applied after.

Key ingredients: Water, Glycereth-26, Dipropylene Glycol, Propanediol, Alcohol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract (1,000ppm), Beta-Glucan, Sodium Hyluronate, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Boswellia Serrata Resin Extract

My thoughts: It is good that the tomato and the boswellia are in the top half of the ingredients list (contents are usually listed from highest to lowest concentration), but I am a little concerned about the alcohol content. I did not feel any skin tightening effects, so perhaps the amounts are not that high...



♡  the Saem Natural Skin-fit Mask (Green Grape) ♡

What it is: A sheet mask that is rich in antioxidants from the various berry extracts, the fast-acting mask makes skin brighter, clearer, and naturally radiant.

Key ingredients: Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Methylpropanediol, Alcohol, Glycerin, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract (2500ppm), Arginine

My thoughts: The fragrance is very strong but delightful! It reminded me of the Qoo drinks.black grapes are high in antioxidants which carry anti-inflammatory properties that can heal and protect against sun damage, dark spots, and inflammation. Containing a substantial amount of vitamins C and E, this fruit is a natural at combating aging and acne. The combination of vitamins C and E can also lighten scars and work together to increase blood circulation to the scalp and skin.



♡   the Saem Natural Skin-fit Mask (Grapefruit) ♡

What it is: A sheet mask that is rich in antioxidants from grapefruit, which fight the free radicals that cause wrinkles, discoloration and dull complexion.

Key ingredients: Water, Glycereth-26, Dipropylene Glycol, Propandiol, Alcohol, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Beta-Glucan, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Boswellia Serrata Resin Extract

My thoughts: I used this mask just as I got back from Japan, where my skin got darker because I did not bring sunscreen (whoops). This mask definitely helped in brightening up the skin and evening out the skin. 



♡   Leaders Mediu Amino AC-free Mask ♡

What it is: A thin sheet mask containing a complex composed of 17 amino acid supplements combined with moisturising factors AHA and BHA. These active ingredients, together with Snail Secretion Filtrate, exfoliate and protect the skin while providing soothing comfort.

Price: $2.90 (I think) on Qoo10. The prices for each mask was different.

Key ingredients: There is no ingredients list in English ):

My thoughts: This mask is recommended for oily skin types (which was not made known to me in the Qoo10 description. The essence was light on the mask, but it would still leave a slightly sticky residue on the face (presumably from the snail extract). It did help to reduce some redness on my face, but I think it is too thick to be used daily.

The Sunday Currently, Volume Forty Six




CURRENTLY...

LISTENING... to the current season of Sound of My Dreams. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the singing this round.

COVETING... the Nintendo switch and a few games~ I thought of buying it during the 11.11 sales, but I had some other important expenditure going on. I am determined to buy it during the 12.12 sale!

SMELLING... my citrus reed diffuser. I bought a really cheap one off Qoo10, and while the scent is too sweet for me, the coverage is great. I will try the different scents in future! 

WATCHING... walkthrough for the new Pokemon Let's Go games. I am tempted to get one now xD But I will play Zelda first before playing Pokemon Let's Go. 

WANTING... some discipline to last through December, with all the singing that is going on. It is the last month of the year!

LOVING... the December #kawaiijournaling challenge that Rainbowholic has set up. It is a good chance to just enjoy journaling, and to reflect on what I have done during the past year.

DRAFTING... a few simple posts on my Japan trip last month. I did not take as many photos as I would have liked, but I have enough to post about trip highlights!

The Sunday Currently, Forty Five



This week of The Sunday Currently is coming one day earlier because I will be helping out at a wedding the whole of tomorrow. I am excited to see two friends get married to each other!

Work has been a peaceful respite after the super busy October. Strangely today has been a ball of tiredness and irritability, which I hope will go away after sleep tonight.


CURRENTLY...

WATCHING... Sword Art Online: Alicization! I watched this series intermittently as the storyline tends to drag out. The starting of this arc seems pretty good; I hope that it will continue that way!

LISTENING... to random Spotify playlists revolving about the chill and relax themes.

WISHING... that all my luggage for Sunday and my Japan trip will pack themselves.


LOOKING... forward to spending a week in Japan. It is mostly free and easy, and two days in nature! I cannot wait.

SMELLING... the Innisfree hand cream in peach. Moisturizing and smells good.

MISSING... my pac-man ring. I took it off in the office pantry to wash my bento box and left it there by accident >_< It was gone the next day. The saving grace is that it was already losing its silver coating, and I would have to throw it then anyway.

COLLECTING... lookbook pictures to re-organise my wardrobe and take stock of my current fashion tastes. I have never had a really distinct or categorizable style, but I would like to figure it out x) also I have to match what I like with what can fit me. 

COVETING... a pocket printer to make printing pictures more convenient, when I do not have many to print! Unfortunately, only the HP and LG ones are available locally, and they are not at the quality I like yet.
