JayJun Real Water Brightening Black Mask Review


Hey Beauty Lovers!

As a self-proclaimed sheet mask queen, I am excited to finally be posting another sheet mask review! I try out so many sheet masks every month, and I love to share my experiences. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may have already seen my monthly sheet mask empties posts. I use 1-2 sheet masks a day, so I always need a fully stocked stash on hand.

My Experience:

Let me start by saying that I love multi-step masks. I find that the products work really well together, and it is super convenient for travel. JayJun makes fantastic skincare products, and I absolutely love their multi-step sheet masks. If you want to pick up a great sheet mask that will give you a luxe experience at a reasonable price, check out JayJun sheet masks.

All three steps of the Real Water Brightening Black Mask were fantastic. I only used this sheet mask once, but I could see benefits right away. My skin was hydrated, looked brighter, and felt so smooth. 

The cleansing step was so gentle, yet it thoroughly cleansed my skin. It does have a mild scent, but I really enjoyed the unique fragrance. It really isn't overpowering, and it smells amazing. If you are sensitive to fragrance, this set will not be for you.

The essence step was very rich. It was a heavy, watery essence, but it sunk in very quickly. A lot comes in the little packet, so start with a little and add more to your skin as needed. Again, this essence does have added fragrance, but it was really pleasant and not overpowering.

The sheet mask itself was saturated in a watery, black essence. The sheet was dyed black, and there was a lot of extra essence in the packet. The sheet stuck to my skin really well, and it stayed wet for the full 20 minutes that I left it on my face.

Overall, I was really impressed with this sheet mask. It lived up to all its claims, and I will definitely be repurchasing this one in the near future.

I hope you enjoyed this sheet mask review!

June 2019 K-Beauty Haul


Hey Beauty Lovers!

If you are anything like me, you love reading about beauty hauls. I'm always so curious about what beauty products people are buying with their own money. With all the PR packages being sent out, it's hard to tell which products are actually being purchased. Hauls are one way to know what is being sent, and what is being bought. 

I'm a little behind on my hauls, but I'm finally getting to post my June 2019 K-Beauty Haul. 

I spend about $80 a month on K-Beauty products. This might sound excessive, but I have a pretty intense skincare routine. I use about 10-11 steps and I sheet mask 1-2 times daily. My hauls typically include a ton of sheet masks, as well as other skincare/makeup products.

SNP Bird's Nest Aqua Moisturizing Eye Patches Review


Hey Beauty Lovers!

This is officially my first post of the month! I will be uploading three new posts a day until the end of the month, just so that I can catch up on all the amazing products I've been testing.

I can't believe that summer is almost over! I look forward to summer every year, but by the end, I am dreaming of the Fall. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, skinny jeans, boots, and puffy vests. I am so looking forward to next month!

Now on to my review!

Disclaimer: I use affiliate links in my blog posts. By using one of my affiliate links, I receive a few dollars. This helps support the blog since I do not accept money for product reviews. I never use affiliate links for products that I don't actually recommend. If you feel uncomfortable using affiliate links, please don't feel obligated to click on anything in this blog. You will also see that quite a few products have been sent to me for free. As a beauty blogger, I receive many products each month. I test out each product before giving an honest review. I am not required to include them in any posts, so if you see them show up, I actually like the products.

SNP Bird's Nest Aqua Moisturizing Eye Patches:

I was sent these eye patches from SNP as part of a PR package. Two products from the Bird's Nest line were included, the eye patches and the sleeping pack. Both products are made with Bird's Nest Extract, and I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about testing them.

When you think about putting bird saliva on your face, it can be very offputting. I waited as long as possible before testing the eye patches, and I am pleasantly surprised by my experience.

First of all, the bird's nest extract is purified, so you don't have to worry about germs. Second of all, the bird's nest extract contains some amazing skincare ingredients.

Product Claims:

  • Formulated with Bird's Nest Extract which is rich in proteins and polysaccharides, and it helps strengthen the skin barrier.
  • Formulated with hyaluronic acid to help moisturize and smooth out the under-eye area.
  • Bird's Nest is rich in EGF which is great for anti-aging.
  • The eye patches will give an instant cooling and soothing effect.
  • Helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines with continued use.
  • Can be used under the eyes, around the mouth, on the forehead, and on the neck for anti-aging benefits.
Ingredients:
Water, Glycerin, Calcium Chloride, Butylene Glycol, Ceratonia Siliqua (Carob) Gum, Xanthan Gum, Swiftlet Nest Extract, Chondrus Crispus Powder, Betaine, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, "Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber), Fruit Extract", Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Ethyl Hexanediol, "Citrus Grandis, (Grapefruit) Seed Extract", Bambusa Textilis Stem Extract, Pinus Palustris Leaf Extract, "Scutellaria Baicalensis Root, Extract", Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract, Citrus Junos Fruit Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Mica, CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide), Tin Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate

My Experience:

I used these eye patches every PM for a month. My favorite way to use eye patches is under a sheet mask. I always left them on for at least 20 minutes and removed the sheet mask and patches at the same time. I never tried to use these patches on a spot other than under my eyes.

The patches come with 30 sets in a sealed tub. A spatula is included to help get the slippery hydrogel patches separated. The patches themselves are beautiful. They are transparent blue with a beautiful shimmer. The patches are saturated in essence, but they don't slide around your face. I did experience a cooling sensation, and my under eyes felt super soft.

When using eye patches, consistency is key. You will not see any benefits if you only use them once in a while. With consistent use, these eye patches will help keep your eyes bright, smooth, hydrated, and they will help soften any lines around the eye area. 

Overall, I'm super impressed with these eye patches. I have tried many different patches this year, and these are in my top 5. I highly recommend getting these from StyleKorean instead of Amazon. Whenever a product is super cheap on Amazon, I'm skeptical about their authenticity. I left both links for you to decide!

I hope you enjoyed this review!
