Three highly-dense and soaked masks, are cased within the box. Covered with Enchinacea GreenEnvy, chichoric acid, coconut gel, carrot extract, cucumber extract and more, you can be rest assured your skin to feel hydrated, smooth and almost plump-like.
Due to the high amount of goodies soaked into the mask, it is quite heavy on the face and it brings about a cooling sensation throughout the process. There is a slight difference to my skin’s brightness after application. It is non-sticky which I love and has a slight fragrance. The price for 3 masks is quite high, which I believe is because of the dense ingredients used. However, I don’t mind re-purchasing the other target-related masks in this brand, because I have found it to be affective, non-irritating and the hydrating benefits is immediate.

Fenty Beauty’s gloss bomb lip luminizer has been out on the shelves for a while now and I have been loving this gloss for a few months now! First off the packaging is so chic, playful and it comes in a handy size, convenient to bring with you on the go. The amount of product you get out of it is amazing and if you only use gloss once in a while, this will definitely last.
The brush applicator spreads the gloss evenly and efficiently. My lips are pigmented more towards a mixture of medium brown and medium pink, which I find this rose nude shade blends perfectly well with. I generally apply mine on its own, but I have also used it on top of lipstick if I want an extra shine to it. For me, it lasts well between 2-3 hours after which I’d have to reapply. It is non-sticky even though the consistency is quite thick, has a slight peach vanilla scent and enriched with shea butter, keeping your lips looking youthful and conditioned. You will instantly see the shine come through and it does have tiny specks of glitter I think, which is another plus.
I’d repurchase this lip gloss, not because of the brand but because of the quality of this gloss. I don’t wear lip glosses often, but since this is not sticky, creates an illusion of fuller lips and keeps your lips hydrated it is worth the price for me.

Talk about the convenience of removing makeup on the go! I was thinking of bringing along my usual large pot of balm overseas, but luckily thought otherwise. This cleansing stick starts off as a balm which you can directly slide on your face, then into an oil and with a bit of water into foam. With my experience, it does not entirely transform into a foam like texture in the end, mind you I tried various amounts of water.
The end result is that your makeup will be somewhat removed, however further cleansing after this product is recommended. I would use another foam cleanser after this product and/or makeup wipes prior, to ensure everything is removed. My skin did not feel dry nor irritant, for the price point you get a lot out of the product and the convenience of carrying it is a major plus. However, since extra steps is required I won’t be likely to re-purchase.
MURAD | SEPHORA $32
I have mixed views on this blemish treatment. It uses potent ingredients such as sulfur to clear out the blemish, zinc to calm irritations and provide protection. AHAs and BHAs is also included to provide the encouragement of cell regeneration.
I do find it alright in its job to minimize the irritation, especially with small issues, however its not good to use on stubborn blemishes. It isn’t hash on the skin, super dewy in fact and you only need a tiny dot! It comes off clear which is perfect, if you do want to apply it during the day. It does not have an instant affect, however it provides a moderate amount of protection for future breakouts.
KOCOSTAR | SEPHORA | AMAZON
At first I was a bit confused on the concept of the 6 ways, the patches can be placed. After looking for an image online, I finally got the idea and I think it’s brilliant! To be able to patch desired areas, and it is all in one pretty container.
Locations are eyelids, smile lines and the eye bags. Super cooling and it adheres to the skin beautifully due to hydrogel. Made to last for 30 days, you will notice the toning, conditioning, detoxfying and brightening results due to these goodies – peony, phillinus, ginseng, baikal skullcap extract and good old flakes of gold.
I have been using it every night and when I wake up. I highly recommend these convenient patches, I find placing this in the fridge, provides a more powerful cooling effect once used.

When I saw that this has a shape memory formula, it got me interested. It has an amazing cooling effect which instantly calms the skin. It is quite soothing, especially after washing and toning.
Waking up from my slumber, I did feel the skin moisturised though it made no difference to my pores. Smoother yes, but not firmer. There is no scent which is perfect and it almost feels like gelatine on the face. Main ingredients used are, betaine, allantoin, lactobacillus and chaenomeles sinensis fruit extract.
CAOLION | SEPHORA $25
Either I am applying this wrong or that it doesn’t work at all…
Unfortunately this sebum control stick did not work for me, maybe because my skin produces too much oil/sebum. There is a notable cooling affect, once applied. I have read comments about this product, recommending this product to those who does not produce too much sebum/oil.
CAOLION | SEPHORA $46
I am so glad I got to purchase this pore pack and it came together, both blending perfectly. Basically, this line produces uses all natural ingredients which is quite soothing to your skin. Though it is a two step process, approximately taking about 35 minutes, it not only detoxifies using the steaming mask but also tightens using the cooling mask.
I have used it twice, once per week, and each time it leaves my skin feeling like a baby’s bottom! Also my skin is clearer for the week, making it easier as well to apply makeup.
I am absolutely in love with this product, and cannot wait to try out other Caolion’s products.
IT COSMETICS | SEPHORA $15
I purchased the mini version, cause you know how expensive cosmetic products are nowadays. Plus, before you want to commit to a full-size item, try first!
Instead of using a brush to apply the mascara, IT Cosmetics has swapped it with a skinny wand. With the wand, you are able to not only prime and apply, but to also reach your roots to your little lashes. Clumping did not occur for me, however it did run a little throughout the day. The other cool thing about this, once mastering the wand, you should be able to also tightline when you go very close to your roots.

Aside from the chic-looking monochromatic case… nope not aside, it looks and feels fabulous. I just adore the unique incorporation of the studded design.
With a variety of colours to choose from, I was given the Underage Red which I find is a beautiful shade for morning and night. It applies a bit matte, with a little shine which could be brilliantly paired with any neutral clothing. Though it is combined with an antioxidant complex, providing moisture it is really not much difference. Also, for me even after applying lipliner underneath, it was not long-wear.
