I haven’t been using masks & packs of this type lately in comparison to mask sheets. Probably cause I’m lazy and don’t want to deal with washing. LOL It’s Skin White Crystal Peeling Pack, I love you! Oh I think it’s time to whip out all my wash off masks now and stop being lazy. I feel they just work better then face mask if you put the effort into it.

It's Skin White Crystal Peeling Pack

It’s Skin White Crystal Peeling Pack is indeed a wash off type. Comes in a little plastic  100ml container. Upon opening, there is a plastic sheet top to protect it from leaking. It’s like a paste, a very dry chalking type paste. To be exact it is a clay paste mask pack. The scent is addicting. I can’t really describe it. Kind of like the really clean sterilized cosmetic clinic scent. Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, but I really like it for a mask. None of that fake stinky fragrances stuff.

It's Skin White Crystal Peeling Pack

Due to the fact It’s skin like never have English text on their products (what a pain), can’t read the descriptions. It uses 3-flower complex, the only English text on the package. LOL Has willow peel & purslane extract. This peeling pack is as the name suggest, to remove dead skin. Not by peeling like with peeling gels but with a scrubbing effect on the surface on the skin.

It's Skin White Crystal Peeling Pack

I’m not sure if you can see really clearly but I tried my best, in the paste, there are tons of tiny little crystals to help the scrubbing effect. Apply over the entire face. It goes on really nicely and all the tiny crystals are very visible. I tend started massaging aka scrubbing. Instructions say 5-10 minutes. I think 5 minutes is plenty. 10 minutes of not stop massaging is tiring. LOL Be sure don’t massage too intensely or apply too much pressure. Be gentle the crystals are quite abrasive, even if they look tiny & harmless you can really peel off too much skin if not careful. I like using little circular motions with my lower palm. After finishing with the gentle massage session, rinse off. It feels so nice, it rinses off like silky milk with ease. My entire face feels so silky smooth & completely hydrated. Though I think you could even leave it on and let it dry for an additional 10-15 minutes before rinsing for an added effect.
OMG, where have you been all my life. 1-2 times a week of this stuff is magic!

You want smooth silky skin, this is it! It also comes in 2 other variety Black Sugar Scrub  Pack & V-Line Slimming Pack. The only downfall is that it has now been discontinued by It’s Skin. Boo! So if you can get your hands on it still somewhere, do it!

Skinlite masks that I have recently used are the Firming Life Coenzyme Q-10 & Illuminating Arbutin Mask. Skinlite is a Korean brand but it can easily be found on western shores, fully packaged with English text too. It also says 100% Pulp on the front, but I don’t really believe it and I highly doubt it  since that would most likely increase the cost of the masks. These are pretty standard everyday drugstore quality masks IMO.

SKINLITE Masks

Both mask come in a 18ml cute jar/bottle-shaped package. The mask sheets are very thin & ill-fitting! Really ill-fitting, just have a look how ugly it is. Due to it being somewhat thin it will rip very easily if you are not careful with it like I wasn’t. LOL  The slits are horrible, you will most likely need to make cuts & adjusting for it to even fit mildly better. I really haate when there is eye & nose slits like that. For me, those flip over eye & nose holes are pointless. I usually have a mask on when I’m in front of my computer. I can see, maybe if you plan to close your eyes and take a nap to have them cover your eyes & nose, but why? Who does that?

SKINLITE Masks

Firming Life Coenzyme Q-10 contains Coenzyme Q-10, Vitamin E and Green Tea Extract that help to restore skin elasticity and vitality. This fast working advanced formula visibily lifts and firms to bring your skin back to life.

It does not have any specific scent that I can notice, just the common cosmetic chemical smell, they both smell like that. This mask had so little serum on it, it was borderline drying up already when I took it out of the package. How disappointing. I had to really push it onto my face to get the most out of what was there. I tried to leave it on for the usually 15-20 minutes, which didn’t last of course. After not even 10 minutes, this thing was pretty much dried up and it was pretty pointless to keep it on any longer. Post mask, my skin did however feel quite firm & tight. *surprised* Skintone was much more even, little to no redness visible, even so slightly brighter. The left over serum from the mask however did not want to absorb into my skin. Even after trying to massage it in and 2 hours has passed some still remained on my skin surface and it’s sticky. I can’t stand that sticky feeling of serum. I had to wash my face in the end with cleanser to remove that feeling. Wasted.

Illuminating Arbutin Mask is specially formulated with high concentrations of Arbutin, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract and Tropical Fruit Extract which help to clarify uneven skin tones, lighten spots, fine lines leaving skin smoother, fairer and younger looking.

This had much more serum in the package as it should be, made it easily to apply onto my face and more to absorbed. I was able to wear it for about 20 minutes without it drying up on me. Post mask, brightening indeed but my skin look a little pale as if all the color was drained out of my skin. Since both mask contains Arbutin, it is expected to have brightening effect, though this was a bit scarier then the other. Ghostly pale like, with no redness or anything. I wonder if used long time, how my face would end up… Quite Hydrating, serum actually absorbed into my skin at a timely manner too. I didn’t have to run off to wash my face with disgust since it didn’t give that really sticky effect. Maybe the other one I got was a dud?

These can be found on sasa if you’re interested and maybe will have better luck then I did. There are also other types available.
I still have other skinlite essence mask in my stash to try soon. I hope that are better.
These were jsut $2.60 US So it’s decently priced.

My momomango haul. A mini one. I only bought 2 items for my first purchase. Here’s what I got below.

Etude House Happy Essential Foam in White Clay, I wanted Witch Hazel but they were out of stock at the moment. Let’s see how this one goes and if I love it, I’ll just have to watch for the other to be back in stock again. I have a few other things I plan to buy for my next order anyway. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Power. Look how tiny it is! I wasn’t expecting that. LOL But, not that much is needed. I was really in need a finisher to top up, so worth it. Also, samples included! No matter how small or large, there is always samples. I got a little note written on the box(nice study box with kraft paper wrapping inside to keep things from flying around, breakage prevention) my stuff came in and included were some candies! How Sweet.

Momomango is an online shop that sells Korean cosmetics and are based in Canada. Which is wonderful for us Canadians finally! They have been around for a while now but still quite new but their selection has certainly been expanding which is awesome. From experience, they have always been super friendly and if you make a request to bring in an item you are looking for, they will definitely do their best to bring them into their shop, though it might take a little while. Communication is top notch.
Their prices might seem a reasonable if you work out the difference from buying from Korea, it might actually be even better considering the convenience of shopping on an English web shop that is based on this part of the world  means quicker shipping with little to no miscommunication. That’s the one thing I always dread the most when shopping from G-Market. There is no communication and if shit happens, you’re SOL. Not to mention their overpaying issue that keeps as credit on your account. Thus I would prefer this route for the hassle & stress free shopping. Tracking is available and I believe it is a flat price rate, free shipping if you order 75$ or more, can’t go wrong.

If you live in Canada or even USA, it’s worth it to check them out. I will definitely shop there again, you can count on it.
Here’s a coupon of $10 off on your first time purchase. CODE : EVECHE2985

Bought a pack of Marc Anthony Oil of Morocoo Argan Oil Conditioning Treatment from a local durgstore other day out of curiosity. Figured my hair could use it, it’s been quit a while since I used any hair treatment products. For some odd reasons I find these things harder to find in western market or maybe because there isn’t as many selections to choose from.

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocoo Argan Oil Conditioning Treatment

Argan Oil, Keratin and Grape Seed Oil combat damage, breakage, split ends, dryness, dullness and frizz.

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocoo Argan Oil Conditioning Treatment

1 packet is 50ml sized. It’s nice that you really get  a lot. This photo, it isn’t even the entire packet contents in my palm. My hair is about mid waist length and there was plenty to use on all of my hair from root to tip. The scent, I love it!! It’s got this really nutty smell to it. Makes my hair smells delicious for a few days. After using this my hair really felt so smooth, less hair fell out, usually I lose so much hair whenever I shower. It’s amazing I’m not bald and I already have really fine hair. Long fine hair does not help at all, the longer my hair the more hair falls out I feel. This silky hair feeling lasted a few days which is a surprise. Once a week of this is plenty!~ The price is right, I would use this again for sure.
The oil of Morocco Argan oil line has some other items too. I’ve always been somewhat weary of argan oil type products, even thought I have dry hair I wouldn’t want to get up with a greasy look. LOL

This product should be easily accessible. At Ultra, Drugstore.com & walgreens.
