Sheet Masks Part I

My love for sheet masks continue. You can see my constant sheet mask posts on my Instagram @beausci2010


I have found a few new sheet mask online retailers and purchased masks from a few new brands. Of the masks in this post my favorite brands are the My Beauty Diary (Taiwanese), Maskingdom (Taiwanese), Freeset Doneky Milk (Korean) and Love More (Taiwanese).


Keep Calm and Mask On!!!

‘Black Friday’ Haul #1- Pretty & Cute


I received the first of my post-Thanksgiving/Black Friday hauling a few days ago. Up first is all these lovely masks I picked up from Pretty and Cute. It was super fast shipping.  Not only was the shipping exceptional but the sale was even better.  They offered 30% off sitewide: 35% of Skin79 and 40% off Lioele products.

I just went with the 30% off since I got a variety of products. These masks ranged from around $1.50 to $2.50 and I picked up 2 of each.

Review: My Beauty Diary – Aloe Amino Acid Cleanser

My new favorite facial cleanser for 2012 that I bought last Christmas from Pretty & Cute
The Beauty Diary Aloe Amino Acid cleanser is a mild foaming cleanser from the Tea Collection. I’ve read that in addition to aloe the other scent is matcha tea (which I heard is very tasty).
It comes in a little mint green pot as a solid cream with a little spatula (I love that most Asian pot/jar products have little spatulas). It has the clean, crisp smell of aloe and a little goes a long way.
I use it almost everyday, I love it especially after a long day when face is extra oily. Afterwards my skin is  very happy and refreshed.
The main feature of this cleanser is the amino acids that stimulate the production of collagen, in turn making the skin firmer and fine lines/wrinkles less visible.
I think this is a great cleanser and if you are looking into trying something new, you should give this one a try. 
Would I repurchase? Yes and yes, although I want to try the Strawberry Yogurt Cleanser next.
