Sunday, 8 December 2013

So the weekend is over and tomorrow is the beginning of another week, and we're getting closer and closer to the end of the year.

Packaging:


Looking at the illustration, it looks like pancake to me. With luxurious amount of honey on it. Now I want one. haha

As Royal Jelly is made by honey bees, I guess the yellow hues are suitable here. 

To those who didn't know what's the real Royal Jelly look like...

From Wikipedia.
Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used in the nutrition of larvae, as well as adult queens. It is secreted from the glands in the hypopharynx of worker bees, and fed to all larvae in the colony, regardless of sex or caste.

Benefits:
In addition to its beauty benefits, royal jelly has some amazing healing properties for the skin and has been found to have strong antibacterial properties. Royal jelly has also been said to stop the growth of bacteria that cause various skin infections. Clinical research has found royal jelly to be effective in managing eczema, neurodermatitis and impetigo. Royal jelly works to restore a proper pH balance in the skin, in many cases reversing these conditions.

Function:
Royal jelly contains amino acids, a basic ingredient in collagen, which is essential in maintaining the skin's firmness by supporting the skin's connective tissue. Because of its ability to aid in supporting this tissue, royal jelly often helps to reverse the effects of aging in the skin by eliminating brown spots, also known as "age spots," as well as wrinkles.

Verdict:

This too has that milky white essence. It's been over a month since I bought this so the mask sheet pretty much dries up on the top part (as I store them mask vertically) so I after I put on the sheet, I carefully pour the essence onto the sheet and spread it evenly. Little tip, store your mask sheet horizontally. :)

Overall, I love this mask sheet! This is the first time I used it and I'm in love. What I love the most about this mask sheet is the moment I ripped open the packet, the scent just filled my nose and it's so subtle and not overpowering at all. Even after taking it off, the scent lingers for few minutes even after I put on my night cream. 

I noticed after using this mask sheet, my skin brightens up a little more than I expected. My skin is firmer and so soft! Hmm, I guess this has made to my must-have mask sheet list. hehe 

Final Verdict: 5/5. Totally love it! I'm going to repurchase it if it's still available but as we all know, this I Need You line mask sheets has been replaced with the Alphabets Mask Sheets. :) Hopefully it's still available in this variant.

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

So I guess that's all! :D So far, 4 out of 6 challenges completed so please look forward to the next mask sheet to be reviewed, okay! :D No surprise there cause it's gonna be Green Tea.

Anyway,  do share your experience if you guys ever tried this mask sheet and give recommendations if you guys have an alternative brand that has similar ingredient. Would love to try that out! :D

Have a great week ahead! See you guys next post! Au revoir!
