Epielle Facial Essence Mask: Green Tea & Aloe

WHERE TO BUY: Asian markets
PRICE: $1.00

- Easy to apply and remove
- Moisturizing and soothing
- No irritation or breakouts
- Affordable

- Only good for 1 use
- Could be hard to find

MY THOUGHTS: This is my first time ever using a sheet mask! I like how it was so easy to put on. You simply place the sheet onto your face, leave it on for 20-30 minutes, and remove it when you're done. No messy creams to spread onto your face or wipe off.

This one is green tea & aloe, which claims to detoxify and soothe. After using it, my skin felt calm and moisturized. Nothing too dramatic, but great for a pick me up when your face is feeling tired or dry. My skin is really acne-prone, but I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation which is always a plus.

As far as price goes, it could go either way. $1 is cheap but it's only good for 1 use. This doesn't seem like a big brand, so it might be hard to find. I got mine from a korean market called Greenland.

What it looks like when you first take it out of the packet.

I know, it looks silly :)

Asian Skincare Haul

I've heard so many good things about Laneige, so I practically ran to it when I saw it being sold at an Hmart. This whole set was $45 which is a really good deal since one full sized product is around $30. It comes with a power essential refiner and balancing emulsion, plus small sizes of refiner, emulsion, cream, essence, and eye gel. My sister also has the water sleeping pack which is amazinggg. I was sharing with her but now I'm gonna have to get my own, haha.

I also really wanted to try sheet masks because they seem really gentle. I got ampoule, green tea & aloe, collagen & vitamin e, strawberry milk, and eye collagen.

So far so good with everything. These products are keeping my skin moisturized without any breakouts or irritation.
