Review: The Body Shop 3-in-1 Blue Corn Mask

6 Mar

Another long title…. when will there be short titles??

Review: The Body Shop has a good reputation of putting great products out on the market and for its dedication to finding materials from all over the world and keeping it all natural. This mask is made for people who have combination to oily skin. Since this mask is a 3-in-1 the tasks that this mask does is to draw out the impurities in the skin, exfoliate the skin and leave it nice looking at the end. The scent of this product has a really refreshing smell and I don’t exactly know where to place the scent. When I first put on this mask I looked like an alien! But putting that aside I felt it really take the impurities out of my skin. And when I got to the exfoliating portion and washed it all off my skin felt smoother and cleaner than it felt in ages! I found the mask a little harsh on my skin as it sucked out everything in my pores but the aftermath is having great skin so I have no complaints. Overall, a mask that really does its job and makes skin care a lot faster and easier.

Cost: $16.50CDN

Would I recommend this product?: I would recommend this product for those with oily/combination skin who don’t have time to exfoliate and put on a mask seperately. For those with dry skin The Body Shop does have a mask for you it’s called the Honey and Oats mask.

Guess who’s back?

5 Mar

Yeah! I’m back to blogging!!! I felt like the time I took off from blogging was horrible!! I think I have found my addiction…. I’ll add blogging into my list of addictions… and I thought I was trying to quit!!

Putting all that aside all the posts this week starting from Sunday were posts that I scheduled before-hand so I’m glad to be back. Some pretty exciting things is going to happen next weekend so I’m preparing this weekend for next week if that makes any sense. So the plan for next week will be post every other day and I have changed the face of the site… I’ll see how much I like it and if not I’ll change it back.

The plan:

Saturday ( Mar 6 ) – Blog post

Sunday ( Mar 7 ) – Beauty review

Monday ( Mar 8 ) – Blog post with a super exciting surprise!!!

And so goes on the week… I’m going to stop for two days so that I can focus on the preparations for the Super Exciting Surprise Event which you will all know on Mon. ^_^ So the day that I will stop blogging is…. let’s see Wed March 10 and you’ll know why I will need to stop.

Anyways, so excited for the Super Exciting Surprise Event on Sat. Mar 13. ^_^ I’ll do my best to take some photos but we’ll see. ^_^

But putting all the planning aside I have discovered some things today!

1. Michelle Phan put out another video this time in celebration of Tim Burton’s new film Alice in Wonderland!! I want to go see that movie but I have no time and theatres scare me… anyways, here is the video

2. The Body Shop has released out some of their Spring makeup collection online! There were only two things that caught my eye…

 A reusable bag for $5.00CDN AND….

 It’s a cheek stamp! And it comes in two colours… Rose and Coral. They kinda remind me of Etude House’s blush from a few years ago…

 Only Etude’s has nice pink packaging. Anyways, the Body Shop one is $14CDN kinda pricey for a blush but I would really love to try it out.

Well, that will be it for today… I posted a lot of stuff…. anyways off to clean and work on some Japanese homework.

Skin Care Test

14 Feb

Since I have a break for a week I am going to do a skin care test. Some background information on my skin it’s oily/combination skin and I am pretty prone to acne breakouts. So this is the routine that I use currently:

 So the basic rundown

1. Wash face with the face cloth in warm water

2. Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser (no water needed!)

3. Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Serum on spots

4. LUSH Grease Lightning all over my face

5. St Ives Collagen Elastin Moisterizer

6. Body Shop 3-in-1 Blue Corn Mask + St Ives Apricot Scrub (not pictured) once a week

So basically I have a skin care regime basically to whiten up my dark spots due to the hyperpigmentation of the acne scars that I have. Now I got this set to try out:

 This is the Shiseido Pureness set which include a cleansing foam, softener/toner, and a mattifying moisterizer. I’m going to start on this regime tonight basically and try to get through all this. So I probably won’t use all of it at the same time just substitute it all in slowly to see if any of them actually break me out or not. Tonight I will be putting on the toner and if I react to it by tomorrow then I know I won’t be able to use it and then if I don’t break out by Tuesday I will substitute my usual cleanser into the cleansing foam. Thursday will be when I substitute the moisterizer. Lets hope that I don’t break out! Here is me now midday and way into the oilyness of my life

 So as you can tell I have currently clear skin with lots of scars and hyperpigmentation in a bunch of places especially on my chin and cheeks. Let’s hope that the test really works!

Organization

13 Feb

Not much is going to happen early in the morning therefore I ended up cleaning and organizing my area. But I think it ended up being much more of a mess. o.o Well, I patched up my vanity area so now it looks like this…

Warning: Another huge load of photos!

 Tada! The new layout!

Let’s do close-ups! I was so excited once I finished organizing everything.

                         

So yeah, the basic organization of my stuff. Woohoo! All the photos have been uploaded! The drawer that I love the best out of all of the drawers I have is obviously the food drawer. ^_^ Fun times. Well, off to the Viets New Year Celebrations which are tonight. I’ll post photos of it all tomorrow and such… when I get back home I’ll be like 3 in the morning. ^_^ I promise I’m not drinking though!

Last day!!!

3 Dec

Today was the last day of classes!! YAY!! Time to seriously go and study…. argh!!

I must learn to love the subjects which is kinda hard to do as I have no idea what the subjects are talking about. Ugh, I think I’m going to be doing a lot of studying which I don’t really like doing. *sigh* no choice I have to do it. Really have to focus on Chem though… the only subject that I am currently failing in. I also go EASIA and Stats to worry about.

But putting the studying aside I went to WEM today and I told myself that if Fruits & Passion did not have the fragrance trio that I wanted I would go and use my $5 for something else. And that was what ended up happening. They have everything else except for the fruity scents… ugh but I picked up some other things with the money meant for the fragrances. I went into LUSH for the first time today. Yay me! Ended up getting 2 massage bars I was actually thinking about getting the Strawberry one or the Therapy one but neither smelled good. Like they were smells that didn’t describe me so I didn’t want to have that on my body. The Sales Associates were really nice and knew there stuff too not to annoying like what I read on the net. Ahaha, I got a tin for free and got two Each Peach because I really like the crispy orangey type smell to it. It melts quite quickly so I cut it up once I got home and put it in a container. I pray that it won’t like melt while sitting on top of my makeup box. But I got a backup and that one is in the tin which is great. ^_^ I think that the next time I go to LUSH that is the only type of product that I will get.

Well actually I was thinking about getting the Mask of Magniminty I believe is what it is called and it’s quite cheaper than the Body Shop but doesn’t last as long so I’m debating about that or going to go and buy the Body Shop Seaweed one. But my current mask which is Body Shop blue corn isn’t planning to run out soon I’ve used about 1/4 of it. Still a lot left to go.

The only other places that I went to were Dollar Store and Dollarama. Wait, is there a difference between them? Yes, yes there is… the Dollar store has everything for a dollar while Dollarama has stuff that is over a dollar and is labelled. I personally like the Dollar store better for like hair clips and candy and Dollarama for general stuff. So what I ended up getting from the Dollar store is 4 sour belts, and 30 hair elastics which were in a set pastel colors! Really pretty cool stuff and from Dollarama I got more running tape and nail file for a Christmas stocking. I still have a dollar left and that is for next time I go to WEM I’m going to get more sour belts. So yummy!

On the way back I decided that I would stop by Tim Hortons and get a hot chocolate because the wind made the weather really really cold!! So I stopped by there and had to try to retreat to someplace warm as quick as possible. Man, freezing cold! I bought a large hot chocolate (as I have a ongoing hate for coffee) and a donut for my sister. Camped out at my sister’s high school while waiting for her to finish up her stuff. I should buy Tim Hortons more often the stuff there is actually ok. By the time I reached my sisters high school my hot chocolate was on the verge of mildly warm. Still yummy…

Ended up coming home and my sister bullying me on the way home which is kinda strange because she is 2 years younger than me but still ends up beating me up. Hate that. So, I am off to work on homework and I smell great too!! So positive I am seriously loving the Each Peach massage bar. My sister says it smell like Pledge (cleaner for wooden surfaces) and lemongrass combined. I don’t think I smell like that but it was quite interesting taking a trip to LUSH.

I am seriously craving a Whopper from Burger King…. no must focus on studying. STUDY!!
