Massive Sheet Masks Haul


So this accidentally turned into quite a haul (I was only supposed to be buying an eye shadow but I got a little distracted). A lot of the masks I bought were for a post I’m currently working on comparing Korean and UK/European/US brand sheet masks so expect quite a few products from this haul to turn up again pretty shortly.


IROHA Nature Argan + Hyaluronic Acid (TK Maxx, £3.99)

So this first one is a brand I haven’t come across before. The price wasn’t really surprising because I’ve found the European/US sheet masks are generally more expensive. I’m a bit tentative to see if the argan oil will be a bit heavy on my skin but hyaluronic is a great ingredient for hydrating the skin. I like that this is a face and neck mask as these aren’t that common. I always put any leftover essence on my neck so it makes sense really for the mask to cover it.


Boots Ingredients Radiance & Brightening: Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily (Boots, £1.49)

Although this is labelled ‘Made in Korea’ I’m putting this in the non-Korean category because Boots is a UK store. I got this one on offer as at full price it’s £2.50. I don’t really know what to expect from this mask as it’s a Boots own brand but I like the simple packaging.




FACEINC [by NAILSINC] Facial Sheet Mask: Cat Nap (Boots, £3.33)

Again this mask is supposed to brighten the skin. While this mask does state that it’s for normal/dry skin and I am oily/combination the choice of non-Korean masks were rather limited so I thought I would try this one out anyway. I like the fun design of this one and again it’s quite nice packaging.



Masque Bar Green Tea Sheet Mask [3 pack] (Boots £9.99)

So this is actually a Korean brand that Boots now stocks. I love green tea products so I picked out these sheet masks to try. I admit the packaging is a bit disappointing. Interestingly the instructions are much more like the non-Korean masks above as they just say to apply the sheet mask to a cleansed and dried face. The non-Korean sheet masks tend to just say to apply the mask to a clean face, while the Korean ones usually specify that you should cleanse and tone first.


Faith in Face Black & White Film Star Hydrogel Mask (TK Maxx, £2.99)

This mask is designed to even out your complexion and give it a smooth finish. I don’t use gel masks that often so this will be quite fun to try out. The packaging does remind me quite a bit of Soap & Glory products.




Faith in Face Miss Invisible Pore Hydrogel Mask (TK Maxx, £2.99)

Another hydrogel Faith in Faith mask this is possibly the one I’m most looking forward to trying out of all of my masks because I’m always trying to find ways to tighten up my pores. I’ve tried a lot of different products but I’ve still yet to find anything particularly effective so I have my fingers crossed for this one.



Mediheal Mask Dress Dress Code Red (£3.99)

So I haven’t given a place to buy this because I actually got this from my local Chinese supermarket. I’ve looked online and you can get this on Amazon but  it doesn’t seem to pop up much in UK stores. I like the packaging and design of the mask and I know I like Mediheal sheet masks as I’ve used them before in the past. Mediheal masks crop up pretty often in TK Maxx so I often pick one up when I stop in there.



The Cure S.O.S Bamboo Water-Shot Mask (£2.99)

As with the mask above this was from the Chinese supermarket and again it’s quite hard to find online. I’ve not had the best experiences with The Cure sheets masks in the past; my skin reacted pretty badly in particular to their Green Tea sheet mask. But I thought I would give them another try (and I could hardly resist the adorable panda packaging). The English instructions on this say to put it on after moisturising, which is a bit unusual but could be a mistranslation so I’ll have a little check online before I use it.



LS Cosmetics Oriental Herbal Tightening Mask (£2.99)

I absolutely love the packaging on this one, it’s incredibly cute and I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. This mask is supposed to brighten up the skin and enhance its elasticity. I’m looking forward to trying this out, though I admit the incredibly long list of ingredients on the back is a little daunting…




S+Miracle Facial Care Pearl Special Mask (£2.99)

This is a 3-step brightening and revitalising mask and I like these multi-step ones as they are usually pretty fun. I admit I have no idea what is in the step 1 and 2 sections because there’s no English but I’m really curious to find out. These multi-step masks are great for travelling because you can add in extra products without having to bring lots of bottles.





Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask: Snail  (£2.99)

You can buy these pretty cheaply in bulk on websites like Yesstyle (10 for around £15) though I only got the one here. Etude House is a brand I’ve used many times and I love snail products so I picked this one up. This mask is supposed to be a very lightweight, non-irritant style.





Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask: Green Tea (Yesstyle, £2.88)

Innisfree is one of my favourite brands but I’ve had some fairly mixed experiences with their sheet masks. I’ve never had a problem with them causing a reaction to my skin but I haven’t found them to be particularly exciting in the past. I love anything green tea though (as I’m sure I’ve already said) so I’m hoping I’ll like this one a bit more. It does have alcohol quite high up the ingredients list, which I admit did surprise me as innisfree usually focuses a lot on ingredients that are kind to sensitive skin.


The Face Shop Real Nature Mask: White Tea (£2.99)

While I’ve tried a lot of green tea products I’ve never tried white tea before. White tea is apparently supposed to help brighten and clear up the skin.






SNP Beijing Opera Aqua Mask (TK Maxx, £1.99)

This mask is a repurchase and one of my favourites. I find this really hydrates my skin and leaves it with a lovely glow. The mask does genuinely look like the little picture so you can’t really wear this one in public like on a plane unless you want to get some very weird looks.





SNP Beijing Opera Waterfull Mask (TK Maxx, £1.99)

This is another mask in the same range as the one above so I thought I’d get it to try out. Hopefully it will be as good as the one above. I’m not entirely sure what the difference between the two is besides the design on the mask itself as they both appear to be hydrating masks.





The Creme Shop Caffeine & Dark Chocolate Masks [5 pack] (TK Maxx, £5.00)

These last masks combine caffeine and dark chocolate, both of which are great for brightening up the skin. They also contain hyaluronic acid, which like I mentioned earlier helps to really hydrate the skin. Personally I really love the design of this packaging and as a big mocha lover I just had to get these.

So that is everything (at long last)! That ended up being rather a long post but I hope you enjoyed it. If you’re interested in seeing how the non-Korean masks fare compared to the Korean ones then keep an eye out as I will be doing a little post on this some time soon.

Korean Beauty Haul


So for my first post I thought I’d start off with a haul of one of my favourite things, Korean skincare. I got all these products from three main places.
The first was Yesstyle, which is a great online store with lots of Korean products as well as a big range of Japanese and Taiwanese ones that I’ll be trying out and blogging about later on. They often have a lot of offers and free shipping to the UK is offered after you’ve spent £30 (it’s hard to spend less, trust me). They have similar offers to other parts of the world and ship to lots of different countries. The post can be a bit slow however, especially if you order something that’s not immediately in stock.
The second was TK Maxx, which sometimes has nothing and other times has lots of discounted skincare products. It’s always worth checking it out just in case.
The last shop is Urban Outfitters, which has been following the recent high street trend of stocking a handful of Korean skincare products. I’ll be doing a post about this a bit later on and reviewing the different high street products available.


Etude House Collagen Eye Patch One Set, £2.01 (Yesstyle)
This is a re-buy and one of my favourite under-eye products. It works really quickly to brighten the skin under my eyes and I feel it makes a visible difference. Etude House is a massive brand in Asia and I’ve yet to find a product of theirs I don’t like. You do only get one set here so in comparison to other products where you can get around 60pcs for around the £10 mark they are that bit more expensive but I do feel they’re worth it.


It’s Skin Todak Todak Pack Moisture, £2.50 (Urban Outfitters)
This isn’t a brand I’m very familiar with so I’m excited to try this out. I found this cute little face pack in Urban Outfitters but they also have a range of It’s Skin Effectors on This particular one is seaweed and lime, which I’m looking forward to trying as I’ve found products with lime in have really brightened up my skin in the past.


Elizavecca Moisture Sparkle Cream, £5.00 (TK Maxx)
If you’ve heard of this brand then you’ve probably heard of their famous bubble clay mask. They have a lot of exciting products and this one was a steal in TK Maxx, with most places like Yesstyle retailing it at around £12.99. This product is something I’ve used a little before and I feel it brightens up my skin, although as it’s quite heavy I’d recommend using it a few times a week rather than daily, especially if you have have quite oily skin.


Tony Moly Panda’s Dream White Magic Cream, £2.99 (TK Maxx)
This was another bargain from TK Maxx, with this cream retailing at around £10.00 elsewhere. This is a very cute little cream and is for brightening and moisturising your skin. It also contains bamboo extract, which goes nicely with the panda theme. Like the Moisture Sparkle Cream I’ve found this is a bit heavy for everyday use but is great to use a couple of times a week to give your skin a boost. It’s not just a face cream of course and it is great for nourishing your hands in particular.


Innisfree capsule recipe pack (green tea), £3.75 (Yesstyle)
This is another re-purchase and currently my favourite innisfree product. With this I felt a really quick visible difference in brightening my skin. It’s great for if you want to give your skin a quick boost. It’s really easy to use and not particularly expensive. Innisfree is a brand that really focuses on using natural ingredients so their products are great for sensitive skin like mine. I find that I can’t use a lot of face products because of how sensitive my skin is but I’ve never had a problem with innisfree.


Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Rice, £2.35 (Yesstyle)
You can get a lot of innisfree masks wholesale on Amazon and also Yesstyle, in either mixed packs or as a set. As I’ve never tried this mask before I thought I’d just get the one. This particular mask is a bit of a marmite product so I’m excited to try it out. I really like the brand so I’ll be interested to see if I like this one too. Innisfree masks aren’t too expensive, which is great, although you do have to be a little careful as their sheet masks do rip pretty easily.

A useful trick I’ve found for sheet masks is that you can put them in the fridge for a little while beforehand to really get a cooling effect.


SNP Beijing Opera Aqua Mask, £1.99 (TK Maxx)
Modelled on genuine Beijing Opera masks this looks like a fun little sheet mask to try out. It contains coconut water and hylauronic acid and is designed to hydrate and moisturise your skin.





SNP Gold Collagen Ampoule Mask, £1.99 (TK Maxx)
This is another SNP find from TK Maxx. I’ve been wanting to try out a gold mask for a while now. You can get this one online quite easily from Amazon as well as quite a few other retailers. This mask is designed to both hydrate and firm your skin, which is something I always look for in a mask.



MBD_BoxMy Beauty Diary White Lily Brightening Essence Mask, 7pcs £11.23 (Yesstyle)
So admittedly this is a Taiwanese not Korean brand but it is one of my absolute favourite brands for sheet masks. While I haven’t tried this particular mask before I’ve used a lot of My Beauty Diary face masks and really liked them so I bought a seven-pack of these ones. The White Lily mask is designed to both brighten and calm the skin, which is great for sensitive skin. These masks are also infused with multi-silk, which is incredibly gentle on your skin. Their masks do tend to be quite small but they’re not particularly expensive and there is always lots of essence left over that you can use either on your body or under make-up to give your skin extra radiance.


Mediheal P. D. F. A. C Dressing Ampoule Mask ex, £1.99 (TK Maxx)
Containing ingredients such as salicylic acid this mask is designed to treat irritated skin and to tackle spots and other problem areas. This is a great mask to try for skin that is both spot-prone and sensitive. Mediheal have a focus on using natural ingredients and on balancing out your skin so their products are great for a whole range of skin types.



Oh K! Coconut Water Fibre Face Mask, £8.00 [3 pack (I may have used one already…)](Urban Outfitters)
These masks are available on, ASOS and many other retailers so they’re not too hard to find. They are a good size and fit nicely so you don’t have to worry about the edges of your face being left out. The coconut water aims to nourish and hydrate so they’re great for giving tired skin a little boost, especially if it’s quite dry.



Kokubo Princess Bath Salts in Smooth and Silky Honey, £3.32 (Yesstyle)
So not technically a Korean product either but this was my impulse buy of the day. Infused with milk extract, vitamins, minerals and royal jelly it aims to promote skin renewal. I’ve never used this brand before but I love bath salts so I thought I’d give this one a try. Kokubo has a lot of bath related products, with a whole range on Yesstyle that I’m sure I’ll be trying out soon.
