Here’s what I finished in October!
๐ŸŒ€Skin Ceramic Donkey Milk & Argan Oil Steam Cream. WP.
๐ŸŒ€Tony Moly Pure Eco Snail Moisture Gel. RP.
๐ŸŒ€Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. Now discontinued, will purchase Ultra HD version.
๐ŸŒ€Stratia 10% Mandelic Acid. WP. Finalized product came out this week!
๐ŸŒ€Ren Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. RP.
๐ŸŒ€Neulii Aloe BHA Soothing Serum. Has pH of 7 so does not exfoliate despite having BHA in the name. Samples didn’t have enough uses for me to figure out what it’s good for. WNR.
๐ŸŒ€Curology. RP.
๐ŸŒ€Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil. Love it but DHC is cheaper and also gets the job done. WP if I find it on sale.
WP = Would repurchase
WNR = Would not repurchase
RP = repurchased

#MyScheming Raw Job’s Tears Brightening Black Mask.
Happy Halloween! Thought I’d have a little fun for my #LeadersSpookySelfie contest entry with a black mask, red lipstick and cat ears. I’m a sheet faced cat woman!
This mask has such a familiar scent but I can’t quite pin it down. It kind of smells like a Chinese dessert…. maybe like tapioca pudding? Either way, it smells really good.
I had this mask on for ~30 minutes and saw good brightening effects. I also liked that the remaining essence absorbed quickly and dried to almost a matte finish.

My friend @mrs.jennrogers has been doing a #30DaysofDecluttering challenge where she has been getting rid of one thing every day. Seeing her posts every day along with her explanation of why she’s letting something go has been very inspiring!
I went through my makeup drawer and pulled everything that I haven’t used in a really long time. Some of these products are really old like the Sugarpill eyeshadow is from 2010. Yikes ๐Ÿ˜ฐ
Honestly, I never wear eyeshadows so now I have no more eyeshadows in my makeup collection. And while I really like the OCC and Life’s Entropy liquid lipsticks, they’re very old products (2+ years old) and I much prefer the ease of ones with doe foot applicators.
As Jenn would say: Bye ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
How do you decide when to let something go? Or do you have trouble throwing things away?

#ItsSkin Snail Moisture Mask Sheet.
This mask has a strong fresh fragrance and packet has ~1 tsp of essence leftover. The fit could be better as the mask is a little wide. I had this on for ~30 minutes and while the mask provided a bit of moisture, this mask just wasn’t anything special.

#illi Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask.
Used this on a Curology night because I can use all the moisture I can get! This mask has a coconuty scent with a white essence. There was ~1 tbsp of milky essence leftover in the packet which I happily slathered all over my arms. The mask was soaked with essence and I had to put a towel down to catch all the drips.
Has a pretty bad fit along my jawline and after awhile, the mask started to lift off of my face. I read that @snowwhiteandtheasianpear had cut this mask into 2 pieces like a hydrogel mask to solve all fit issues. Will have to remember to do that next time I come across a mask with poor fit! I had the mask on for ~30 minutes and found the claims of moisture to be true. My face also looked a bit brighter which was a bonus!
Not sure I’d repurchase because of the poor fit but if another one came my way again I’ll try cutting up the mask to see if that works better.

Was so happy to hang out with @beepgirlunni over tacos, boba & masks tonight. Love it when your online friends become IRL friends!

Ok I know that I look like I just ate something bad but one time someone (a MAN) told me that when I smile with an open mouth my bottom teeth show which apparently looks aggressive so now I’m self conscious.

But believe me when I say I am super happy because I got to hang out with this babe @maskaddict tonight! We had tacos and boba, exchanged masks and discussed milestones in the AB community’s history, like you do. It’s so fun to have Insta-friends to meet when traveling! Thanks for a lovely evening Anna ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ #instababe #ABcommunity #rasianbeauty #instafriends #sheetfacedglowcult from Instagram:

#BeauteForest Royal Jelly & Pearl Moisturizing Mask.
Beaute Forest is the sister brand of L’Herboflore and this is the first time I’ve tried a mask by this brand! This mask has a similar material and feel as L’Herboflore masks except it doesn’t have the weird slits on the nose and upper lip. The material feels a little papery but it’s pretty thin and adheres well. This mask has a really nice smelling fruity honey scent. The mask is dripping with essence and there’s another ~1 tsp in the packet.
I was able to wear this mask for nearly an hour and when I removed the mask, I was surprised to see a bright and even toned face! The mask also lived up to the moisturizing claims.
I bought this mask from @beautibi if you’re interested in trying this mask.
PS: thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I really appreciated every single comment ๐Ÿ˜˜
