What is a sheet mask and how to use it? x TONYMOLY

As you can see, sheet masks are getting more and more popular all around the world now— though in Korea and Asia they have been part of normal skincare routine for a long time. Sheet masks came originally from South Korea, the top country of skincare and beauty products. Today I would like to share some facts about sheet masks and review of TonyMoly's great masks. What is a sheet mask? A sheet mask is a face-shaped mask which is soaked in concentrated serum. They are usually made of fabric or gel and they contain important ingredients to skin like vitamins, hyaluronic acid and plant extracts. They are individually packaged, for one use and really convenient  — you don't have to rinse it off afterwards like normal face masks. Why are they used? They are used for example to moisturize, smooth, clear, refine and heal your skin — simply to make your skin more beautiful and healthier. In Korean skincare routine they are often used after serum and ampoule treatments to strengthen the…

The popular Korean primer — TONYMOLY Egg Silky Smooth Balm

TonyMoly is known from their cute animal and fruit themed packages. TonyMoly arrived to the Nordics 1st of September what gives a reason for a preview of one of their popular products: Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm which is one of the most popular Korean primers due to its cheap price and well known golden egg shaped jar. Silky smooth balm manages the excess sebum and make skin to look smoother by making pores less visible. It gives semi-matte finish which makes your skin ideal for makeup to last the whole day beautiful. It also absorbs the oiliness away so your skin looks less shiny but still natural. You can also use the product alone without applying any makeup. I love this product because it comes with super cute jar and it has lovely lemon scent. It looks like something edible (even tho it's not) and the texture is typical primer. The main ingredients are egg white and oil controlling herbal complex (Burdock, Lemon, Hop, Peppers, Sylvia, Soap Gras). The egg white removes dead ski…

The best Korean eyeliner

Everyone who uses makeup knows the feeling of an eyeliner which always gets smeary and fades out until the evening is even nearby — or the eyeliner which is impossible to apply because of the bad and too thick brush. I have experiences all those until I found the best Korean eyeliner which is pure gold: Clio Waterproof Kill Black eyeliner. Clio is a Korean brand which is known for their innovative quality and great pigments in their makeup products. I used to love to apply eyeliner almost everyday and found out that the ones with brush or pen are the most suitable for my eyelids. This pen eyeliner is great because it has deep black pigment and the pen is also thin to get beautiful and precise result. It's also waterproof and it lasts the whole day without getting smeary. This product goes well with Etude House Curl Fix Mascara.

As you can see the eyeliner looks like a marker pen. There are Clio eyeliners with the pen and brush nibs. Even though the nib in the pen one is thicker th…

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

Ok, so I primarily wanted to have this product because of the adorable name and the cute pig. But there is also a story behind why I ended up getting this one! When living in Korea last spring, I was paying and ordinary visit to a supermarket called Homeplus and I was having some free time. I wandered around at the cosmetic section and some Korean woman who was working there asked me to see some of their products. I was actually trying the lipsticks — and asked if there are any nice masks for acne scars. Without hesitating she took some bottle, opened it and put the product on my hand. I saw some thick grey stuff which started to make bubbles. WOW! Bubbles, so cool! I thought. And after rinsing it off my hands were soft as a cute little pig. It made funny bubbles so here I am with my Milky Piggy Bubble Clay Mask. Happy and confident to review this product. When you open the jar it's full of the thick grey cream I told you about. It smells like clay and it looks like — not so beau…
