Hello Care Olive Collagen Sheet Mask Review

Remember how I was planning to step up my sheet mask review game? Hahahahaha, yeah. Good joke, I guess. But I’m actually going to pay up today and give you guys my Hello Care Olive Collagen Sheet Mask Review, since I actually remembered to take photos when I used it two nights ago!

But seriously, guys. This is how crazy my sheet mask backlog has become: I posted this pic of my Hello Care Sheet Mask haul from Asian Food Grocer twenty-six weeks ago, and I’ve only tried a whopping two of them since then.

Got a bunch of clearanced sheet masks today, lucky lucky 👍 #kbeauty #skincare #shopping

I may have a problem.

Anyhow, as I alluded to in that insta post, I managed to get these sheet masks dirt cheap when Asian Food Grocer was clearing them out. I guess sheet masks weren’t selling very well for them, because they slashed them all to like 50 cents each and don’t seem to have ever restocked. I grabbed one of each type available, though looking at Hello Care’s website, the Intensive Collagen line has a TON of variations beyond the seven “flavours” that I purchased.

However, today I’m only going to be talking about the Hello Care Intensive Olive Collagen Treatment Mask.

Skin79 Strawberry Girl Sheet Mask Review

The past few days have been very cold – in the single digits with “feels like” sitting around zero fahrenheit thanks to wind chill. This means that the heat has been cranked up everywhere, and in turn, my skin is starting to feel pretty dry. I woke up this morning with the definite realization that as much as I love the finish my Vicco Turmeric Cream gives, even layered over my craploads of hydrating essences and serums, it is definitely not hydrating enough for the absolute dead of winter.

I’m going to be going through my moisturizer backlog and see what looks promising next (I’m very close to being finished with this Vicco tube anyhow), but as a stopgap emergency measure, I decided my resolution for the next week-ish would be to use a hydrating sheet mask every other morning. Ideally, I’ll also review them each for you here, assuming my laziness doesn’t get the better of me… 😏

Yesterday morning, I tried out the Skin79 Strawberry Girl Fruit Mask!

Mairi’s 2016 Halloween Wishlist

I seriously can’t believe that it’s almost Halloween! I’ve been waiting for autumn for what felt like forever (the muggy, buggy, sticky summers of Central Ohio do not really get along with me…) and now that it’s finally here, it seems to be zipping by like nothing. I mean, here it is Halloween weekend, and I still haven’t published my Halloween wishlist post – so, uh, let’s do something about that, yeah?

halloween-wishlist-2016

So, I’ve selected 10 items (or… groups of items, in some cases, because I’m indecisive lol) and ranked them in a somewhat ordered fashion. If you’re curious to know what I’ve been lusting after this Halloween season, please read on to see my 2016 Halloween wishlist!

Superbox #56 Yogurt Cosmetics Memebox Review & Unboxing

Let’s cut to the chase: yes, it’s another food-themed Memebox. I know, I have a problem!

But yogurt in cosmetics is really not unusual or new, it’s generally associated with being soothing and hydrating – which makes it a prime ingredient for winter skincare products. Many people, myself included, suffer from dryness and irritation due to winter weather, so I was able to justify buying the Superbox #56 Yogurt Cosmetics pretty easily.

first look

Here’s the official summary of this Memebox:

Yogurt is a yummy and wholesome snack, but when applied topically, you’ll see that this creamy wonder food  also has a multitude of beauty benefits!

Yogurt used as part of a beauty regimen dates back to ancient Egypt, when Cleopatra used it as a part of her daily beauty routine to maintain her youth. It contains lactic acid to dissolve dead skin cells that accumulate into the pores! Also, proteins, calcium, and vitamins prevent premature aging, brighten skin, and give the skin a naturally youthful glow!

Unlock this ancient beauty secret for your best self ever!

Whoever writes the sales copy for Memeboxes is damn good at their job, because I always end up thinking “well, that sounds like something that could definitely benefit my skin!” after almost every new box gets released. I mean, who doesn’t want youthful, glowing skin, right?

all out

So, just at a glance, we’ve got three different types of face mask, a cleanser, a moisturizer, and a lip balm set. I’m always happiest when my boxes are more skincare oriented – unless of course it’s a specifically makeup/haircare/whatever-themed box – so I’m pleased with this lineup.

Let’s get down to the unboxing – click the read more to see the individual products and my thoughts on each!

Holika Holika Rosy Peach Tea Cafe Mask Sheet Review

I seem to have a bad habit of buying and reviewing masks right as they’re discontinued, and this is no different – Holika Holika discontinued the Sweet Tea Cafe line of their sheet masks some time ago. However, since the masks are still relatively easy to get ahold of online since a lot of retailers stocked up, I figure a review could still be useful to some people, right?

I bought the Rosy Peach “flavor” from the Sweet Tea Cafe line. I really wanted the Milk Tea variety, but that’s sold out everywhere as far as I can tell – most retailers seem to have all the other kinds for now, though.

“Rosy Peach” is meant to help clarify acne-prone skin while adding moisture and aiding circulation. You can see the details of each sheet mask variety in this graphic from Holika Holika’s official website:

Memebox Luckybox #9 Review & Unboxing

It’s tiiiiiiiiiime! After some people posted their recent Memeboxes on a certain enabling subreddit, I went a little crazy and bought multiple boxes – as I detail in this post, it’s really hard to resist the siren call of Memeboxes once you get started, even before you receive your first box!

Speaking of which, that is a thing that happened today. My first Memebox arrived!

memebox

This is Luckybox #9 – from their description: Luckybox has always offered only the must-have items for both the loyal fans of Memebox and also those new to Memebox! For Luckybox #9 we’ve included the best items from previous Luckyboxes and Memeboxes!

So basically, the Luckybox series is a “best of” past boxes kind of deal. IIRC, this is the only unthemed box that I purchased, so I really had no idea what to expect!

memeboxfirstlook

So here’s our first look. Gotta love detailed information cards, particularly when all the packaging is in a language I don’t speak at all!

unboxedmeme

Here we have all the products laid out – so that’s four full-sized products, four samples, and a sheet mask. For $23 plus $6.99 shipping, that’s not bad at ALL. I’m also happy to see that it’s all skincare, too – makeup is fun and all, but I only need so many mascaras at any given time, you know? I go through skincare products much faster than makeup, and I’m still looking for my personal holy grail products in almost every category.

Anyhow, let’s get down to it and check out the info cards + each product individually!
