i got fluffy mail today!! i love fluffy mail! i’m expecting more stuff tomorrow, and thursday. fun!
anyway, today i received the kose seikisho mask white from beauty.com (20% off) and the hada labo gokujyun hyaluronic milky lotion from amazon.com. the mask is a peel off mask. the concept of it gets me all excited and giggling. i have never try one before and this was my first. the hada labo is all the rage in japan i believe, with 1 sold every 4 seconds. impressive! i have combination to dry to sensitive skin so i really need a good moisturizer and decided to try this.
back to the mask. it’s in the form of a thick liquid. it is not running. it is easy to apply; take too long and it’ll get sticky. i did a not too thin but not too thick layer for the first application. i waited for about 20-30 minutes. after 10 minutes you can start to feel the mask stiffen and tighten around your face. there’s no scent that i can tell. i peeled off from the bottom and there was no pain. i did leave a bit here and there but nothing major and my skin feel super smooth afterward. i love the mask! you can see the little whiteheads and other things if you look really close once the mask is off. eeewww! i will definitely buy it again at a discount. i hardly ever buy anything full price.
my interest in the hada labo hyaluronic acid came about as i was researching the hada labo uv moist spf 50 sunscreen. one thing lead to another and i’m in need of a moisturizer as i had ran out of the zia. i still have half of the yes to carrots night moisturizer but i was itching to try this too. luckily, amazon had it through their prime shipping and it was in my hands in 2 days. i just love prime, don’t you?
again, this milky lotion (moisturizer) has no discernible scent, is in white liquid form and can be running. i’m starting to like these things with no scent as some of them are way too overpowering for me. one reason i never never use the stuff from bath and body works. i squeeze a dime size (per instruction) on my palm, smack it with the other palm and started “patting” it all over my face until it was totally absorbed. it only took a minute or too and this was a new concept too, patting instead of rubbing it on. my first impressions: it was kind of fun (patting). it is not greasy or smelling (did i say that already?). i can see myself using this unless my skin get some kind of weird reaction or it turns out that it’s not as moisturizing as i thought. it comes in a generous size, 4.7 oz. i’ll wait another week or so before i decide.
throughout all this, the hubby was right there along side me using the mask and milky lotion too. funny!
