Today I went to Aritaum and right now they had an offer on the sheet masks. I paid 7500 korean won for ten masks, which is no cheap. I asked the girl working which mask works best on sensitive skin and she told me to get the Mamonde Flower Essential Mask Orange Blossom Vita Nutrition. I trusted the girls choice because she took this type up, holding onto it when also introducing some of the other Mamonde sheet masks. It has a slight smell of oranges, it’s super nice.
Since it’s getting warmer in Korea and also this weekend it’s been warm and raining and windy, my hair and my skin has been reacting. Here in Korea when it rains everyone is carrying an umbrella, not only does this make it annoying walking down the street because everyone’s umbrellas are hitting each other but also some don’t see where they are aiming it, so now it’s risky walking the streets because someone might hit you in the face with their umbrellas. The reason for everyone carrying an umbrella is since the air is so polluted from the yellow dust blowing over from China, also the rain is polluted and even many people say it makes you lose more hair/go bald if you don’t use an umbrella. I myself even noticed that I would have, ore hair fallouts if I didn’t use an umbrella on a rainy day during my first 6 months in Korea.
Also the last days I haven’t been able to find my eye cream in my room, so I went shopping.
* EVO Easy Tiger straightening balm (my hair goes crazy from this humidity)
* Mamonde Nutrition Lifting Eye cream
* Mise en scène (미쟝센) perfect repair serum (for hair, in korean it’s called “퍼펙트 세럼”
Here’s the picture of the products I bought;
So in South Korea right now there’s a pretty new dry shampoo (and apparently it’s also a wig cleaner) out called Hair Couture featuring the girls from the k-pop group Girls Generation on the bottles. I have the dry shampoo in “Leslie pink” (featuring Sunny) and “Blueming”. Both of them have no colour, it’s just normal dry shampoo, there’s a third one which name I can’t remember and if I understood correctly it’s adapted for blonde hair and it does have some colour in it.
Also tonight I’m putting on another sheet mask, this one is the Mamonde Flower Essential Mask Camellia Lifting sheet mask. What I love about the Mamonde sheet masks is how they all have really nice smells~~
This evening I’m trying out the Mamonde Flower Essential Mask Pomegrante Anti Aging.
You’re supposed to leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes. I previously had good experiences using Mamonde products but I didn’t try this anti Aging sheet mask before. I’m aware I’m only 24 years old and usually people say you should start using anti Aging products after you turn 25 years or are older, but I’ve recently read many articles saying that to prevent aging signs on the skin it’s good to start earlier. And I have some worry lines on my forehead and wrinkles under my eyes so I thought why not try. Have a great day everyone!
I recommend sheet masks to anyone trying out Asian skin care. Most Koreans swear by the magic of using a sheet mask or more per week, and I noticed myself that it makes my skin look less dull, and I never got any side effects using sheet masks. Since my skin type is mixed/sensitive this really helps dehydrate the skin any day. Also it’s good for someone the day after drinking or the day before a date, it just gives your skin that extra bit of glow that makes anyone happy.
