Sunday #smotd: I wanted a soothing, moisturizing mask after my usual clay mask routine and felt like this @innisfreeusa It’s Real Squeeze -Shea Butter Mask would do the trick. .
The mask was well saturated with a milky watery essence. I did not pick up a scent while applying and masking. The sheet mask is smooth and soft. Although it feels a bit thick but, it lays very nicely on the face. I did not feel any irritation with this mask. .
I typically don’t like milky essences in a mask but this one felt nice and soothing to my dry skin. After removing the mask, my face looked and felt plump and well hydrated. There was just the slightest tacky feeling but it made me feel like my skin was well hydrated. I was pleasantly surprised by this mask and will continue to repurchase this one and others in the It’s Real Squeeze line. Definitely a good inexpensive every day mask. .
Today’s AM routine! Switched up a few things and also been using serum/ampoule in the morning

Sheet Mask Review
The Pearl Essential Mask Sheet from The Face Shop.
This was suppose to be included in my night routine 3 days ago but because I got tired from all the masking, I saved it for the next morning
Smooth and light absorption (lol what?)
Give your skin the appearance of pearl (??)
I always get confused by masks like these. Are they suppose to brighten your complexion? Or just "whiten" you? Aka lighten skin discoloration? It doesn't specifically say ♀️ I more or less wanted to try this to see if it did give me a bit of a glow and also lighten up the discoloration of my summer freckles. The mask itself was like thick cotton and was stiffer than other paper masks; it wasn't slimy at all, just felt like slightly wet cotton. The fit was awkward, the mouth hole and forehead part was too big for my face. Because of the fact it didn't have much essence on it, it became dry really fast. Once I took it off, my face was not sticky one bit (probably the least sticky my face has ever been after a mask). It felt like I was patting in oily water. The smell at first was almost fruity, but when I put it on my face it had more of a chemical smell But wasn't bad. After letting my face dry, I did have a bit of a glow and my freckles did seem to lighten up a little. I didn't have to use as much concealer to conceal my spots for the next few days So it seems like it helped in that department, but wasn't that huge of a difference ♀️
My Wear Time:
3.5/5 Could be nice to try to lighten up face discoloration but my face didn't look pearly ♀️
Piling up on the sunblock because the facialist said I have a few sunspots on my cheeks I'm genetically predisposed to having freckles and it's kinda tough fighting genetics so I have to keep out of the sun/use enough sun protection.
This @sooae.official Pure Detox Mid Sheet Mask helps refine and detoxify skin for a healthier looking skin. It contains Kaolin Clay and Charcoal which removes impurities abs excessive oil without drying the skin. It soothes, brighten, and revitalize the skin from its fruit and botanical extracts such ad Honeysuckle, Grapefruit, Blueberry, Blackberry, Hottuynia Cordata, and Portulaca Oleracea.
This mask is separated into two parts and has a protective plastic layer on each side which makes it easier to apply to the face. After cleansing and applying toner, place the mask and ensure that air pockets are smoothen using your fingertips. Leave it on for at least 30-40 minutes.
For me, this mask is in a different level of stickiness. It’s true that it is convenient since it is a mess-free mask, but it was difficult to adjust the mask because it is a little dry (I was worried that the mask will not adhere well to my skin, but it worked out well after some time)...
After 35 minutes, the mask feels very dry (similar to dried paper mache. My face feels tight and a little uncomfortable. After washing leftover residue from my face using warm water, my face looked a little brightened and my pores are more refined. It does not have a moisturizing effect but I can make up for it using lotions/moisturizers...
I think this mask really does well in refining pores. Although this mask is a little dry on the skin, I think a little adjustment would make this mask more desirable...
Wanted to share my purchases from @cultbeauty after winning the competition they had in collaboration with @sokobeauty There were so many things I wanted to buy on the website and after a long debate I decided to go with: #alphah Liquid Gold - looks to fade fine lines, battle blamed and restore radiance. Looking forward to trying this miracle making stuff! #BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector - one of their best sellers (and a brand I’m falling in love with) that neutralises the blue tones of dark circles. Bought this because I’m suffering from a lot of dark circles lately and will you guys know how it goes so. .
