Friday, 29 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! Finally the uni is over the week! T.G.I.F!

So, Dear Girls, Shop Wisely! pun intended! 

Anyway, like I told you guys in the previous post (to those who haven't read it check it out here), me and my friends are doing the #masksheetmarathon so in continuation to that, today I'll be reviewing the second mask that I tried for the first time from this line, which is:

Pomegranate benefits in skincare:

With its incredible antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and ability to encourage radiant skin, the pomegranate has been incorporated into skin care; especially anti-aging and sun care products. It can help with a number of skin care issues that women of color can face, including dry skin, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne flare-ups and acne scars.
  • Cell Regeneration. Pomegranates help protect the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and helps with skin cell regeneration in the epidermis and dermis (inner layer), increasing circulation and healing the skin, aiding in tissue repair and wound healing.
  • Sun Protection. Pomegranates have sun protective compounds that protect the skin against free radical damage, help prevent skin cancer, relieve sunburn and reduce the signs of sun damage. Pomegranate seed oil works to protect against skin cancer because of ellagic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates, which researchers have found inhibits the growth of skin tumors.
  • Anti-Aging. Pomegranates protect against premature aging by helping reduce the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Pomegranates also help prevent hyper-pigmentation and age spots.
  • Youthful Skin. Pomegranates promote smooth, firm skin by promoting collagen and elastin production and soften skin.
  • Dry Skin. It is a great ingredient for skin care because its small molecular structure allows it to penetrates deeply into the skin. It works for most skin types, (which depends on the skin care ingredients pomegranate is combined with). Since pomegranate oil penetrates deeply into the skin, it is effective for treating dry skin. It soothes dry, cracked and irritated skin. It contains punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid that hydrates and prevents moisture loss.
  • Oily Skin/Combination Skin.
    Pomegranate oil even works for oily skin and the use of pomegranate have been beneficial in skin care products for acne prone skin, to combat breakouts, reduce scarring and sooth minor irritations.

Verdict:

The essence is in milky white colour, the consistency is thicker than water but is runny like water. 

The size of the openings are little bit disproportionate, right? But I guess it's okay. Just a little bit so just dab the uncovered area with the excessive essence. 

   

Left: Before Right: After. 

After using this sheet mask, I feel my skin so soft to touch! So far I've tried the Pearl and Lemon but this is the one that leaves me with the softest skin after. Though I really hate the line formed by the sheet! Ugh!

Anyway, I love the scent! It's smell like floral but I guess it's because of the fragrance in the essence. This could be a minus point to some of you though. 

Final verdict: 5/5. Totally love this one! So yes, I'm going to repurchase it if it's available but as we all aware, this I Need You line mask sheets has been replaced with the Alphabets Mask Sheets. :)

This mask sheet is retailed at RM6.90 but I got this during the Etude House Buy 1 Free 1 Merdeka Sale from 30th August to 1st of September so I got this with Ginseng as freebie. 

So I guess that's it! 2 out of 6 challenges completed so please look forward to the next mask sheet to be reviewed, okay! :D

Enjoy your weekend, y'all! Annyeong~
