Facetory

Good afternoon my beauties, I hope you are having a good day. I don’t know what happened yesterday, but my post never uploaded. I got it all fixed now so this shouldn’t happen again, I hope!

So anyway, today we are going to talk about the great FACETORY subscription. They are a monthly subscription box of sheet masks that have a theme every month. There are two plans you can choose from:

Four-ever Fresh, which includes four sheet masks. If your not a big sheet mask person, I suggest this box. You can put one on ever week. This box is $5.95 plus $2.95 for shipping. This box tends to have fabric masks, like cotton.

Seven Lux, which includes seven sheet masks. (That’s my plan) This box is $15.95 plus $3.95 for hipping. This box has higher quality ingredients with its masks. Tends to have more hydrogel masks.

You can also cancel your subscription at anytime. I’ll show you what I got for the month of September, which was Gold themed!IMG_1424

This is September’s box, isn’t it really cute! Love it! This box included:

A card talking about the masks that are in the box. I usually go in the order that is provide.

IMG_1531IMG_1532

Then comes the masks!

IMG_1530

I just keep them in my fridge until I need them. I never want them to get dried out, then I just wasted my money. Since I use a mask everyday I never have to think of them expiring. My problem is ordering more so I don’t run out. (I always think, you can never have too many sheet masks.)

So I was thinking Sunday I should show you all my regimen products. I actually have two sets, sometimes I put some products of one set in my other regimen. I incorporate Korean and Canadian products in one set and all Korean in my other. Can’t wait to show you all!

Have any questions or request please ask. Don’t be afraid to leave a comment. I loved to hear from you all. I do hope you all try Facetory out. Let me know if you like them as much as I do! Don’t forget to tap that like & follow button on your way out! Please and thank you! Lol!

Be safe, live free! Have a great weekend! Mine is going to be slightly busy with finishing my photography project, lab, history & journalism quiz. Plus going to the Fair with friends again and I having to party with my cousin for his 21st! So a real busy weekend!! Enjoy yours!

Korean Skincare Regimen – SPF

Good afternoon my beauties, its been a long week for me. Sorry about not posting last Thursday and Sunday. I was really trying to study and finish my art project. I hope you are having a great day. So lets talk about the last step in the regimen.

 

SPF or Sunscreen

Everyone needs to have sunscreen no matter the colour of your skin. You don’t want to have skin cancer later on in life. No here is the kicker!

Most of the Korean SPF doesn’t have darker shades of BB Creams or any tinted creams that help with skincare. What I use is NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30. You’d just have to find a BB Cream that fits your skin tone.

 

For sunscreen I actually use:

Missha Waterproof Sun Milk SPF 50  – Totally can wear underneath make up and doesn’t lift or separate.

 My Skin Mentor Dr. G Brighten Up Sun Sunscreen – Only thing about this one is when I put it on it comes out to have a peach undertone.

I totally know this is short but its still sweet. I’ve tried others but these two I know work with me wearing makeup as well. Next Thursday I’ll be talking about one of my recent favourite subscription that is very affordable for everyone.

Be safe and live free! Love you all! We are actually done with the Korean 10-Step Regimen.

The Korean Skincare Regimen – Moisturizer

Good afternoon my beauties, I’m actually writing this two hours before I have to go to my art class, because my Monday was so hectic, with my extra credit project and panel. So it was a very late night. Then I was looking and I noticed that there was a very important step that wasn’t on my list. I have no idea who I skipped it. At least I caught it before it was to late.

 

Lets talk about moisturizing since there isn’t a recap, because we never talked about it before.

Moisturizing is important because it locks in all of the products that you’ve put on your face & keeps your skin looking healthy by being hydrated. Now for my oily skin type people there are moisturizers that are lightweight so it doesn’t increase your shininess. There are many types of moisturizers from mists, creams, & oils. Choosing one just depends on your skin type. If you have oily skin you don’t want to end your night regimen on a oil, so try a mist. Dry skin it might work best for you to have a cream. Combo & Normal skin you could use one of the three, just depend on what you feel your face needs for the AM and PM regimen. You also could use two different moisturizers for your regimen, a hydrating cream or mist in the AM and a oil or cream, which could be called a sleeping mask in the PM.

Product time starting with:

Mists

Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence – Hydrates & nourishes. (This os actually one I use for through out the day, I live in a city that is very hot our cool days would be anywhere btw 88 to 90 degrees in the.) IMG_1383

 

Missha Near Skin Simple Therapy Mist Toner – Mild toner, clams & soothes irritated or sensitive skin. This could be used as a toner or a face mist. Works best for Sensitive skin.

 Cremorlab Mineral Water Mist – Nourishes & hydrates.

Aprilskin Magic Snow Mist – Brightens, hydrates, & anti-wrinkle.

Creams

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream – Lightweight, hydrates, firms, & helps repair acne-prone skin. (Smell is kind of so-so, which means it’s strong smelling, it works but I couldn’t get passed the smell so I stopped using it.)

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Emulsion – Hydrates & firms.

Corsx Oil-Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion – Clams, hydrates, & repairs acne-prone skin. This is great for Sensitive & Acne-prone skin. 

Missha Super Aqua Ultra Water-Full Clear Cream – Hydrates & controls sebum. (This is what I currently use now. This is a cream but its more like a gel. It makes my skin so soft.)

IMG_1381

Aromatica Rose Absolute Vital Cream – Hydrates, brightens, & anti-aging

Oil

Re:p Nutrinature Ultra Moist Gel Oil – lightweight, clams, hydrates, & aging.

 

I know that last one was a short list, but that’s because that’s the only Korean skincare product thats worked for my skin. Right now the face oil I use is from an Canadian company called Deciem, but you all might know them as The Ordinary.

That’s it for today. Thursday is our last step, which is SPF. I hope you have a great day and rest of the week. Try one of the products out and tell me what you think about it. If you enjoyed this, please like and follow me to hear more. Live free, stay safe! See you next time. If you have any questions, comments, or request don’t hesitate to write.

K – Beauty Fact Sunday

Good morning my beauties, I hope this week wasn’t stressful for you all as it was for me. I had 2 essays, 4 quizzes, and 2 lab projects that I needed to complete, which I did! Yay! I’ve been really anxious, because I with my sister that could go with out buying makeup for 3 weeks……and it’s almost time! The 29th is the day and I’m impatiently waiting for it to come. She promised if I won, which I am, she would come with me to makeup and skincare shop and be my blank canvas for my makeup looks. I might have you all join us on this anticipated journey. Especially, since we going grocery and game shopping as well. Whoop! Whoop!

So for those of us who aren’t in Korea or know people in Korea who can get them skincare, we are somewhat limited on Korean products. I don’t high risk sites like Ebay or Amazon unless I’m purchasing from the actually company. I wouldn’t suggest getting your skincare from places you’d have to bid on it just to have it. There are some really great counterfeit products that do more harm then good.

I know skincare can be expensive, but there sites that are TRUSTED Korean product sites. One of my favourites is Soko Glam. They have a lot of products and even give you a bundle deal for a 5 & 10-step skincare regimen.

The following picture is one of their 5-step bundles. Know I know what your thinking its $115 for just 5 items what is the cost of a 10-step bundle. We’ll get to that later.  This bundle is the Acne & Sebum Control Set. Everything is full sized comes with:

  1. Banila Co Clean It Zero Purity
  2. Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam
  3. Neogen Real Flower Cleansing Water Calendula
  4. Missha First Treatment Essence Mist
  5. Missha Water-Full Clear Cream

 

$115.00

5-Step Acne + Sebum Control Set

 

This set is good for beginners or people who get overwhelmed with the amount of different products. It makes it simple, they give you the products. You just try them out and see if they work for you problem.

Now their 10-step is more in-depth and has more products. Pictured below is the 10-step regimen for Oily Skin, called 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine Set (Oily Skin Type).

$199.00

10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine Set (Oily Skin Type)

It comes with the following:

1. BANILA CO. Clean It Zero Purity (oil-based cleanser)
2. NEOGEN Green Tea Real Fresh Foaming Cleanser (water-based cleanser)
3. GOODAL Deep Clean Pore Glacial Clay (pore mask)
4. MANEFIT Beauty Planner Mugwort Sheet Mask (one sheet mask for single-use)
5. BENTON Snail Bee High Content Skin (toner)
6. ENATURE Birch Juice Hydro Essence Skin  (essence)
7. KLAIRS Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (serum)
8. MISSHA Misa Cho Bo Yang Eye Cream (eye cream)
9. BENTON Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel (moisturizer)
10. MY SKIN MENTOR DR. G Brightening Up Sun SPF 42 (sun screen)

The only bad thing about the bundle is that only give you one sheet mask, so that means you have to buy 28-30 sheet masks for everyday single use. If you decided to use a sheet mask everyday, besides the actually treatment masks that comes with the bundles. (Some bundles don’t come with a clay or bubble masks, so it just better to also get a bundle of sheet masks.) As I’ve said before, you aren’t supposed to use a treatment mask every day. It’s normally recommend to uses it 1x week or sensitive and 2x week for tougher skin. But I always use a sheet mask everyday, no matter what. I keep them all in a container in my fridge. When I use my sheet and treatment masks, I usually do sheet mask in the morning before class and treatment mask at night. Otherwise, I just sheet mask at night.

 

The greatest thing, I think, on this sire is their variety of sheet masks.  They have a sheet mask challenge set. That gives you seven different sheet mask for everyday. Every month they give you a new set of different masks.

7-Day Sheet Mask Challenge Set

7-Day Sheet Mask Challenge Set

$25.00

I do this change once a month because it helps my skin and I love trying new masks out.
They also have a lot of products to customize your on 5 or 10-step regimen. All you have to do is start with the first step, which is oil cleansing. Filter the products for your skin type, then filter some more, if you can, for your skin concerns. They will then produce a list of oil cleansers that fit your criteria. Sometimes they don’t have products that are for both skin type and concern. So it’s just best to go with your skin type products.
The CEO of the Soko Glam, Charlotte Cho is the author of one of my trusted skincare books called, The Little Book of Skincare,Or can be found at Barnes & Nobles.
It’s a great read if you love reading about skincare, lol!

The Korean Skincare Regimen – Eye Cream/Mask

Good afternoon my beauties, I hope this week has been good to you all. My life is a little hectic, mainly because of school projects and tests that I’m having to do. Well, that’s the life of a college student. So today is about the next part of the regimen, which is the eye creams/mask.

RECAP: You always want to have an eye cream/mask for day and night. (I usually do my cream in the morning, then my eye masks at night, because I also put on a sleeping mask.)

Lets talk about why you would need an eye cream/mask in your regimen anyway. The eye step in your regimen is the step that is a long term care step. This step helps you not have eye wrinkles or crows feet as you age. So think of it as an anti-aging step. Eye cream/mask also help with the dark circles under your eye.

For this section it’s going to be a little different with the types and what they can be used for.

 

Manefit Beauty Planner Lily Brightening Eye Mask – Brightens under eyes & de-puffs swollen eyes. Masks.

Goodal Moisture Barrier Eye Cream – Brightens under eye, retains moisture, & anti- wrinkle. Cream.

Shiseido White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream – Great for hyper-pigmentation & hydrating. Cream.

Bio-Performance Glow Revival Eye Treatment – Brightens under eye, anti-wrinkle, & de-puffs eyes. Cream.

Erborian Ginseng Infusion Total Eye – Anti-wrinkle & brightens dark circles. Cream.

Saturday Skin Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream – Firms & brightens. Cream.

I know this is a little short mainly because it there isn’t a lot of eye creams/masks that I’ve tried that actually did anything for my under eyes. I only give you recommendations on products that I’ve tried, and that worked for me. Again some products you won’t get to work for you others take awhile to see improvements. I usually wait 2 months for the effects of an eye product to kick in. With some products from this list I saw improvements instantly, others was an over time improvement.

 

I hope this helped you out. I hope you all are willing to try out some of these products. Next Tuesday is moisturizes. As I always say, follow me if you’d like to hear more from me. If you enjoyed this post, please like. Stay safe, live free! See you all on Sunday for our next Fact Sunday. Any questions or request, don’t be hesitant to ask.
