Sample Stash - Facial Mask Sheet, Essence and Cleansing Oil

by - June 18, 2016

I'm back from hiatus!  Yasssss!   It's been a long time since the last post and I think this is the first one for the month of June.  I really missed my usual blogging session.

Anyway, I just came back from a business trip and I can't wait to tell you about the whole experience.  I have a lot of backlogs to finish so that might come a little later.  But for the next few weeks, expect a downpour of product reviews.

For today, here are 3 samples and my first impression about them.

Let's start with the mask sheet from Banila Co.  It's actually my first time to see and use a facial mask that comes with an ampoule.

Well, this is not a real sample but I thought I would include it here for you guys to get a closer look.

So you apply the ampoule first then put on the mask.  You can also skip the first step in case you want to use the ampoule separately.

I loved the intense moisture after.  My skin felt very supple!  It's like the perfect treat for a stressed skin!

Next is this Essence by Skinfood.

Nothing too interesting about it but I loved the honey scent.  It's not too sticky too in case you're wondering.  :)

Lastly, Etude House Real Art Moisture Cleansing Oil.

I've used up the entire sachet when I was in Japan.  I didn't bother to bring my Bifesta because I avoided bringing too many liquid products so this one was really convenient!

My actual cleansing oil experience turned out to be better than I expected.  I thought it would feel very uncomfortable but it's not.  The only thing I didn't like though is how it got into my eyes.  My vision became very blurry but good thing it didn't sting.

And the cleansing power?  


It broke down makeup very fast.  The waterproof eyeliner I was wearing, which also has been so tough to remove was gone after.  All gone.  No traces even after waking up.

It was also effective in removing the stubborn mascara I'm currently using.  As I've mentioned, Maybelline Hypercurl makes the lashes stiff and it breaks down to tiny grains that just spread if I use cotton pads soaked with makeup remover.

But of course, it doesn't stop with the cleansing oil.  You have to wash your face as per usual with your regular cleanser.

It didn't irritate my skin as well.

So that's that.  What do you think? 

Have you tried any of this three skincare products?  

your sweetest drug,
