NOHJ - Aqua Soothing Mask Pack Hyaluronic Acid

Usually I like to try masks in sets, so I would try out the entire range over a couple of weeks but sometimes I buy interesting ones to fill up my shopping cart to make up the few grams of the shipping weight. This was one of those cases.
I had neither heard of the brand or seen it before but it had this traditional Korean look to it that caught my interest containing hyaluronate acid to moisturise and witch-hazel which soothes sensitive skin so I thought I'd chuck one in the bag.
Being a person that easily swells and itches for prolonged periods of time over mosquito bites and animal scratches witch-hazel has become one of my favourite ingredients when buying skin products.

Before Use
Skip forward a few weeks and I've played with Thumper (my adorable mini-lop bunny) a bit too long and must have had a reaction to her food (multiple flowers and hay varieties) so my eye area is itchy and reddening in a patch and I'm looking like a sad red panda.

Etude House - Sugar Silicon Puff

When I first saw silicon make up puffs through my Facebook feed I was really skeptical about whether or not it was actually any good. There were already so many labels trying to push 'innovative' 'creative' ways to apply and wear your make up which seemed cool but never at all necessary.

Honestly speaking, I've never tried the beauty blender either, but I won't doubt the hundreds of thousands shining reviews it has. After-all I'm not that much of a skeptical moron. My first make up sponge was actually the Shu Uemura light bulb. At the time, still new to make up, after watching my favourite beauty guru I ended up buying one of Shu Uemura's foundation and the sponge to match. The foundation ended up being too moist for my skin type and so I …

Leaders - Pore Scaling Black Aqua Mask

I am a BIG fan of many of the original sheet masks from Leaders so it was very exciting when I started seeing different ranges show up at stores in stores near me. In fact I get excited when anything Korean/Japanese/Taiwanese pops up in Perth AT ALL seeing how small it is. And something new in Perth means that I don't have to order it and wait 15-20 working days for it to arrive. Except when something becomes available in Perth the price is bumped up threefold so I still bulk order in advance.

Being already a Leaders fan this face mask in particular piqued my interest as it contained charcoal and ash which claims to freshen, brighten and moisturise skin. And unless you've been living under a rock you must know that in the recent years the use of charcoal has become very popular in beauty products for its cleansing properties which I have yet to really give it a go.
Reading the description the product claims to purify your skin, tighten pores, brighten your complexion and be s…
