NEAL’S YARD White Tea Enriching Facial Mask 50g
This (and an eye cream) was my first purchase from NEAL’S YARD, a UK-based natural (organic?) skin and body care brand. Although I wrote about the Power Berry Daily Moisture earlier, I only got it after getting this mask.
The White Tea Enriching Facial Mask is something of a surprise, in the sense that I was expecting a completely different product from what it actually is. ( ﾟдﾟ)ﾝﾏｯ!! According to the product labelling, it “Deeply nurtures DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN”, and “Restores vital moisture levels to plump the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines”. In actuality, it’s… a clay mask. (´Д｀ι)ｱｾｱｾ

SISLEY Express Flower Gel 60ml
I ♥♥♥ SISLEY (see the number of ♥s? (ノ∀≦。)ノぷぷ-ｯ笑) but this (leave on) hydrating mask is not one of my favourite products. I used up a tube a few years ago without feeling impressed. I must be the only dissenter amidst all the raves! Σ（￣□￣；） I was left with the lasting impression of pasty glue and suspecting I’d been given an “off” tube. But I bought a new tube, this one, in a moment of insanity last year… and it’s still exactly as I remembered it. 彡(-ω-；)彡ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
Oh, it seems like WordPress’ image fading problem fixed itself, YAY! Hopefully it stays fixed.

IPSA Refiner Water Massage 75g 4,200円
I stay at home most of the time now so I don’t have any makeup things to write. But I’m running out of skin care things too… (●´ω｀●)ゞエヘヘ
I can’t remember when I bought this, but it’s been sitting at the back of my stockpile for quite a long time. I used it a few times when I first bought it but otherwise I’d mostly forgotten about it, which wasn’t hard because it was hidden right at the back. I’m trying to finish it now. (●´ω｀●)ゞ ｴﾍﾍ♪

KOSE Medicated Seikishō Whitening Mask 80g 2,415円 (税込)
The Seikishō Whitening Mask is a peel-off mask for removing excess sebum and impurities. Kind of strangely despite its name it’s actually black, which makes it quite funny when you use it. ((´∀｀*))ヶﾗヶﾗ Like the rest of the Seikishō, and Sekkisei, line this mask is formulated with traditional herbal extracts.
I find peel off masks more effective than wash off clay masks at clearing pores, but the Seikishō Whitening Mask is the only peel off mask I know of so I suppose I’ll be repurchasing this until I find another one to try. (。´･ω･)ん?

L’OCCITANE Ultra Comforting Mask 75ml
I’m not sure why I really want to write this, but I keep thinking about it so here it is, just so I can have some peace and stop thinking about writing posts! (｀Д´) ムキー!
The Ultra Comforting Mask is from L’OCCITANE‘s Shea & Organic Cotton range for sensitive skin. A friend recommended this range, particularly their Ultra Comforting Cream, to me but I have too many moisturisers waiting to be finished. I’ve used the Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk in the past and thought it was a decent cleanser (but maybe not for combination-oily skin) so when I was looking for a soothing, moisturising mask I picked this one. (o´・∀・｀o)ﾆｺｯ♪
