A sweet-face sensation!

Hello Darlings, Dudelings and everyone in between!

This first impression is in no shape or form sponsored. These are my words and honest opinions.

Sorry for the late post guys, I’ve been out all day, hunting down the easter bunny with only a bottle of ketchup and a semi roasted hot dog!

So, it’s time for another first impression!
Not so long ago a sweet sensation of a face scrub found it’s way into my shopping cart, and from there all the way in to my bathroom shelf, filled with K-beauty lovelies!
I am of course talking about the highly praised Skinfood Black Sugar Mash Wash Off!

Doesn’t get more classy than placing the product in an easter egg, right?
Anyways, let’s get this egg rollin!

Name: Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off
Product: Exfoliating scrub
Good for: Manual exfoliation, makes your skin babybooty smooth and gives it a glow.
Price: 8-13$ (Ebay, Jolse, Bbcosmetic)
Ingredients: Sucrose, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Clycerin, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Macademia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Lanolin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Laurate, Butylparaben, BHT, Caramel, Parfum.

First off, let’s start with how one would slap this sugary goo on your face!
Apply after washing, do not put this product in your eyes or mouth, it smells amazing but believe it or not, you’re not supposed to consume it! If you have sensitive skin you can alternatively mix the mask with water or oil to reduce the chance of turning this sweet experience into an extremely sour one. And if you wake up one day and decide that you want a lighter scrub, the whole mixing with oil or water thing works for that purpose as well! Massage it in, let it work it’s magic for 10-15 minutes before you wash it off. I would not recommend using it more than 2 times a week, but each to it’s own!

The consistency of this product is as one would expect; sugary, a semi thick paste with sugar grains in it, it’s lovely and if you are silly enough to rub it between your fingers it will tickle!
It smells really good, like sweet black sugar, so the name fits perfectly with the scent, go figure!

What do I think of it so far?
So far I really like it, I’ve already used it twice and my skin hasn’t raged even a fraction of what I thought it might! A few purging spots have occurred, but it’s a small price to pay for the services it’s done. This black sugary beauty will go permanently in my routine once a week, because it really get’s the dirt out and leaves your face smooth and ready for pampering! And have you looked at the price? 8 dollars! That’s an extremely reasonable sugar high if you ask me.

So that’s what I think so far, and there will probably be more sweet talk about this when it’s been tested, sniffed, poked and applied even more!

Have you tried this, and what did you feel about it?

First Impression; Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Hello Darlings, Dudelings and everyone in between!

This first impression is in no shape or form sponsored. These are my words and honest opinions.

So, almost everybody knows about this little volcanic gem. Either they have it, want it or they’re deep down in their 7th jar of it.
I for one have a natural skepticism when it comes to everything clay/mud related, basically because my skin has a tendency to go batshit crazy just from smelling that there’s mud in a 10 mile radius, but also because I bought into the illusion that a clay mask would dig it’s way into my skin and stay put for a month or four and I would one day wake up from a mini face-quake followed by a messy blackhead filled volcano erupting.  Well, not that extreme, but you get the picture!

After a lot of add to basket, delete from basket action when it came to this sucker, I finally took the plunge and ordered it, among other things, because honestly, who can just buy the ONE thing that they need?

It arrived earlier this week, just in time so that I could have something to test, sniff, touch and photograph during these oh so long bank holiday days. Yay, Easter!
So, after a lot of rambling from me, let’s talk clay. Or should I say, get down and muddy?

Name: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
Product: Clay mask
Good for: A 6-in-1 pore treatment clay mask containing super volcanic cluster capsules to effectively absorb sebum and cleanse pores
Price:  11-16 $ (Ebay, Amazon, Bbcosmetic)

First of all, this jar, so pretty! I love it! (of course I do, because it’s cute.) When I ordered it I imagined it to be bigger, like a lot bigger, but then again, it does say 100ml, so why I believed it to bigger, no one knows.

I love the design on this product, sleek, simple, with a nice contrast when it comes to the heavy and dark tub and the light metallic color of the lid really hits home!
IMGP8856

The product itself is what one probably would expect, light grey in color, creamy consistency with small grains (super volcanic cluster capsules) in it. It doesn’t smell much, here I was, expecting it to smell like volcano hellfire when the scent really is almost non existing / very subtle earthy.

I have gotten the chance to try it once, and boy was I shaking in my pyjamas when I applied it! A little goes a long way, it’s easy to spread and you don’t get the creepy potential murderer porcelain doll face when it dries.

I was a sceptic, but I have a feeling this will be the product that revives my faith in clay!
So far so good, and you do feel a positive difference in the skin after just 10-15 minutes of looking like a K-beauty zombie.

There will be a full review when I’ve gotten to know this poretastic product a little better, so stay tuned for that!

Goodies in the mail!

Hello darlings, dudelings and everyone in between!

Here’s a short, but sweet post on the items mentioned on our instagram feed, that finally came to mama! When saying finally I mean after 10 days, which in reality is pretty fast, but I have the patience of an bamboo-craving panda, so 10 days for me is A LOT. When we all know that when shipping from Korea to Norway it’s a miracle that it came that fast, and right before easter, wooh!

So, here goes:

Firstly I got my hands on the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Sheet Mask in a variety of versions, basically because I’ve never tried them, and I love a good package deal!
I’ve heard great things about them around the interwebs, so I kinda just had to buy them. (and they’re cheap, which always is a plus)
IMGP8872.pngI have yet to slap them on my beautiful face, but I will give you guys an update as soon as I’ve tried these moisture bombs!

Next I purchased Skinfood’s Black Sugar Mask since I’ve read about it almost everywhere at it seems to be a cult favourite, and so far I adore it! I got the chance to slap it on my face this morning, so of course I did. And boy let me tell you, this one gets the morning nasties out of the pores, not like a stinging sucker that leaves your face sad and red, but you really get that babybooty feeling afterwards! And so far I’ve had no bad reaction or purging from this badboy, so I will try it a few more times before I give it the Hail Mary or Die Gary, all depending on how me and Mr. Sugar Mask get along!
IMGP8860

Next we move on to something I’ve been eyeing for a while, Vicky already has this product, so once it’s tried and tested we might do a review where we both share our experience with this snaily goodness!
I’m of course talking about Mizon’s Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule! I really hope this slimy sucker will be a bestie for my skin, because, well, we love snails, don’t we?
This actually came in one of those “Special Edition” promotions, so I got a small All in one snail repair cream with the ampoule, this will also be tested, sniffed, applied and raved or hated, time will tell!

IMGP8867

So for now, that’s all I’ve got!
Hopefully there will be a first impression/ short review up by tomorrow on a product I know has a special place in your heart or leaves a bad taste in your mouth, depending on the skin type you’re blessed/cursed with.
Also, can I just say, free samples? Dudes, I love free samples! Or, everything free I have a tendency to like, I mean, it’s free, it smells good and you can smear it on your face, what is not to love about it?
So maybe it’s time to try out some Vit C just to see what the hype is about.. Anyways!

Until next time!
