Is it weird that it pleases me to buy a shed ton of masks because I've finished using mine? Or close to anyway, saving some of those "special" ones for a rainy day....? Brand new spanking masks to try! It's always a gamble though because I won't actually know how good the mask is until I try it and if ain't good, then all of it goes down the drain.... So I bought 3 boxes of new ones from this brand called Haruharu - fingers crossed! All below are purchased from Cosmetic Jolse.
I've used the Petitfee Resurrection Plant soothing mask and absolutely loved it (highly recommend!) so naturally taking advantage of the Black Friday sales, I ordered the other one in the mask series, which is the Silk Amino Serum Mask. The Plant Resurrection one is ultra moisturising and brightening. I can vouch for the ultra moisturising part (so, so gloriously moisturising!!) and it's now one of my favs! Since I have the Haruharu moisturising mask though I decided to skip on the Petitfee this time.
The silk amino serum mask looks like it's for anti-aging, using silk amino acids (silk) and this plant that is actually widely used in Chinese/asian medicine. Now, I know the Chinese name for it, so had to look up the English, which is (according to wikipedia) Ophiocordyceps Sinensis (or "vegetable worm" on the packaging). This is a fungus found in mountainous regions and parasitises larvae of ghost moths and produces a fruiting body which is used and valued as herbal remedy. For remedy, this type of plant is known for it's warm qualities, aiding energy, anti-oxidant and anti-aging, along with anti-bacterial and stress reducing.
These Haruharu masks are most intriguing when it comes to the packaging - I absolutely love the art work on the cover! I got the Moistursing, Vitality and lifing. These uses fermented horse fat - which I love in beauty products as they have done wonders for my skin! Unfortunately I couldn't find more English translated description on the box - think it's time for me to learn Korean....! Looking at the ingredients list the moisturising one contains hyaluronic acid, niacinimide, bark extracts, fruits extract, flower extracts and root extracts. The Lifting one contains collagen and various plant extracts. And the Vitality one contains root extracts, bark extracts, and sesame seed extracts. Although they all boast about the fermented horse fat ingredient, it's actually the last of the ingredient list!
So these would be interested and should last for a while. Being poorly really throws you off with scheduling and taking care of yourself so one of the things I need to get back to doing is masking more often! I do love masking though I do find it a little difficult to make the time for it - maybe I should come up with an effective/efficient way for working people to get a full skincare routine done! Still trying to figure mine out...!
