Review: My Beauty Diary Masks

I know I've blogged about getting these two masks before but I've never really wrote about my thoughts on them so I decided to write a review for them for anyone who is interested in trying these masks out.

I really like and trust the brand My Beauty Diary. It's not too expensive for a daily use mask and it works great on the skin. There are many different type of masks from this brand and each mask pertains to have different use for the face. There are ones for moisturizing, firming, whitening, lift stretch, cooling and etc. Awhile back, I had a chance to try many different masks from this brand because a friend of mine gave me a bag of different masks from this brand to try. However, I have to say my ultimate two favourite masks from this brand is the Black Pearl Mask and the Strawberry Yogurt Mask

The Black Pearl Mask is a best seller from the brand and it softens and whitens skin while bringing back its original resilience and glow. It is recommended for normal skin types to improve skin elasticity. The main purpose of this mask is whitening and nourishing. It also restores elasticity and luster. Natural vitamin C plan extracts such as pineapple, lime, cucumber stimulates metabolism of cuticles, thereby removing old and dead skin cells, making your skin silky smooth, refreshed and white. Furthermore, it enhances elastcity, luster and vitality, ultimately creating the perfect clear and elastic skin. 

This mask really does leave my skin feeling more refreshed, white and smoother when I use it. I really do see a difference in my skin from before and after I used the mask. It also adds a very healthy glow to my skin making it look really soft and smooth. Overall I'd give the mask a 5/5

The Strawberry Yogurt Mask is mainly used for oil control and balancing. It is suitable for normal skin type and especially recommended for oily skin combinations. It is used to increase the moisture and softness of the skin. Mallow extracts combined with the blink-lock water efficiency element y-PGA standard poly acid form a layer of moisture on the skin, keeping skin moist, lustrous, fresh and bright. Just like the sweetness of the strawberry and the smoothness of yogurt, every inch of your skin will be beautifully transformed!

As mentioned above, this mask is mostly used for oil control and balancing but it also helps to brighten the skin. I don't have oily skin but I am oily around the t-zone of my face especially my nose, forehead and eyebrow area. So I like to use this mask to help keep my oil control on those spots and I do find that this mask makes my skin look a bit brighter after I use it. It also moisturize my face and makes my skin feel extra smooth and fresh. Overall I'd give this mask a 4/5. It doesn't leave my skin looking as nice as the Black Pearl Mask but it's definitely a great mask to use for moisturizing the skin and especially during the colder weather in fall/winter. 

I rotate from using these two masks once every week and I try to do a mask every week if I'm not on my period. Whenever I am on my period, I tend to break out with pimples and I fear that putting a mask on will break me out even more so I usually skip doing mask on the week when I have my period.

Thanksgiving, Shopping, Outfits!

Following from my last post about my crazy shopping from Forever 21, I went back there again this week and did some MORE shopping! XD I'm going on a shopping spree-frenzy this month. There is still one more item that I want to get from Forever 21 but they didn't have my size when I went. I'm planning on going back to the store again later on this week to find it and that will hopefully be the end of my shopping for the fall until winter, lol! 

Super cute and adorable hearts print pink sweater. I am so IN LOVE with this sweater. It was like love at first sight. This item wasn't on sale but I just had to get it because it's so cute and I need to get it soon while small sizes are still in stock and before it gets sold out because new fall items are getting sold out crazy fast at Forever 21! 

A really cute and sweet looking polkdots pink tulle skirt. This skirt actually has 3 different layers in it. It looks super cute in person! Bought this at regular price for $18! 

A simple black pleated rock style skirt. I love this skirt! It's a great simple essential piece to match sweaters and leggings with for creating a dark but yet cute looking outfits for the fall. Can't wait to wear and rock this skirt out, haha!

And since I am about 95% recovered from my cold, I can finally start wearing pretty/cool clothes for the fall. When I am sick, I like to dress like a hobo because I look like crap and FEEL like crap! LOL. Therefore, I have no energy or mood to make myself look good or dress nicely. Trying out a new look for the fall with these two biker style outfits that are inspired by Amuro Namie! This isn't a style or look I'd wear normally but I'm always open to trying new style and looks! =)

Black and white stripped zipper pockets skirt from H&M.
Fish net stockings/tights from Ardene.
