Well, Stowaway Cosmetics has just
released a set of four face items that are each only...
Hi everyone !
I don’t see the brand “Missha” on beautytap anymore, anyone knows why ? ^^’
That’s weird! I think there were a lot of Missha products just recently, but they’re all gone now.
I’ve also been wondering about Benton — just one product left…
Hi everyone !I really don’t get it, but every sheet mask makes me feel itchy and/or leaves me with redness or irritation. The last one was so bad I couldn’t stand it and had to remove it 5 minutes after putting it on… 🙁 I always put them on a clean face and leave them for the advised amount of time. I store them in the fridge (it’s summer here and I like the coolness when I put one on). I’ve tried 3 different ones, one every three weeks, two that were samples (so I didn’t pick them) and the last one was one specifically for oily skin (my skin-type).
Is it because I have sensitive skin ? If yes, what kind of sheet mask do you recommend ? Or may I be allergic to something ? I…[Read more]
What masks did you use? A few reasons:
1. you might be allergic to a component of the mask
2. you might be really sensitive (but I actually think it’s less likely, especially if the masks are meant as soothing ones)
Sometimes I prefer to use simpler hydration masks for starters, as opposed to very nutrition-filled ones. The material of the mask might also matter!
Thanks for you answer ! I used one from Moksha and the others from the Oerbeua mask line. However, none of them was a simple mask, I guess I’ll give sheet masks one more chance… My last one will be one from Innisfree, and I’ll pay attention to the components.
I’d recommend the Innisfree tea tree, bija, aloe, cucumber and bamboo masks! I use these consistently for hydration (mostly the old version, but the new formulation should be quite alright as well).
Let me know how things go! 🙂 Hope the third time’s the charm 🙂
I’ll let you know, thanks ! 🙂
How is your moisture barrier? Sometimes that kind of reaction can be a sign of a compromised acid mantle. If you use a low-ph cleanser and some very gentle products for a while, it should be able to repair itself.
Out of curiosity, which masks did you use?
I thought it was fine, but now I’m very careful in order to restore it because clearly my moisture barrier wasn’t okay anymore after my last mask. I now use a low-ph cleanser and the gentler products I have.
It was one of the Oerbeua One-Step Mask, the “hold it tight” one.
This may not be the answer, but I’m wondering if maybe you’re sensitive to the sheet mask material itself. Have you tried wash off masks (like a jelly mask)? I use those in the summer when my skin is ultra sensitive. It might be worth a try.
I’ve ordered a wash off mask to see how it goes, what you say sounds very plausible so it’ll allow me to have fun masking without taking any risks 🙂 thanks !
Be sure to post back and let us know how it goes. 🙂 I’m always interested in finding new wash offs, so please mention what you bought, too!
I have sensitive skin too and I have to watch out for masks with alcohol in them. Usually if it’s listed as the second ingredient, I try to avoid it. The ones sold at CVS with cute characters on them had that problem and I had to avoid them altogether after one bad one.
While not K-Beauty, I can’t use the Yes to masks because they’re too abrasive and the fragrance is really bad – makes my eyes water. I had good luck with Mediheal’s tea tree masks and the Keep Cool ones.
Oh, that may be it ! I’ll give it the Mediheal and the Keep Cool ones a try whenever I can 🙂
Laneige water ones were good too – no fragrance with those and very hydrating.
I’m about to buy my first products here, I’ll try to review them as soon as possible ! I’ve read everything I could before, to learn about K-beauty, routines for oily/acne-prone/sensitive skin and I look forward to it ! 😀
I’m new here too. I’ve found the community to be welcoming, the prices good for a great selection of brands and products at varying price points, and the best, most informative articles I’ve found on a wide range of topics relating to K-beauty and general skincare, make up and other related topics. I’m a little addicted to the site at this point because it’s so much more than an online store. Have fun and welcome!
That’s exactly how I felt ! I think I’m getting addicted too, I read so many articles and looked at so many products… It seems so complete, informative and the reviews of the community are really precise too, I’m glad I found this site/online store !
Thanks you for welcoming me 🙂
Everyone is so nice and supportive, too. No negativity. I’m happy to have stumbled upon this site, also. I was using SOKOglam, but there wasn’t enough variety or community. Also, the site seemed geared towards westerners who want to dabble in a trend, not really learn and utilize all the richness of the ingredients and traditions. I can imagine spending way more time and money on this site than I should! 😁
I noticed that the articles were really complete (and well-written, I always enjoy reading them 🙂 ) and honest, I feel like the people here want us to really understand the products, and I appreciate it. It’s great that you confirm that impression, I’m really glad I found this site !
As for spending way more time and money that I should, I’m already guilty as charged 😀
Well, we’re starting out at the same time, so I hope to share our thoughts and experiences from time to time! My name is Catherine. Nice to meet you!
I hope we will ! I’m Léa, nice to meet you too !
I just popped over to say hello! Let me know when parcel arrives. I’m waiting too and am excited for both of us! 😘
Welcome to the community!
You’ve set foot on a beautiful trap. 😆 This certainly won’t ever be your last purchase.
Hope you’ll like it here. 😘
Thank you ! I’m pretty sure I’ll end up wanting for more products, but I’m also sure I won’t regret it !
I can’t wait to get my parcel ! 😀
Thanks again for the warm welcome !
Definitely keep us updated!
Hi! I’m new, too 🙂 I have sensitive skin that was oily in Illinois but in southern california is WAY dry. But my oiliness may also have been from over exfoliation (thanks St Ives). What did you buy? I ended up with mostly COSRX products (purchased late April) and I’ve been so happy! I also love the Skinfood cleansing oil. I read a TON here and on Jude Chao’s fifty shades of snail blog and fanserviced-b blog by tracy, too. Funny, I ended up with all k-beauty after originally searching for reviews on Sunday Riley products and I’m so glad I read those and didn’t pay so much $$$! CosRX has been great and way more affordable.
I took COSRX products too, along with a cleansing oil from the Face Shop and the Innisfree mineral powder.
I only started this week to read the Fifty Shades of Snail blog and it was really informative and great. 😀 Now, I want to buy and try some more products (the skinfood cleansing oil among them), but I’ll have to wait a bit before that 🙂
Many k-beauty products seem more affordable and really efficient, I’m so glad I ended up here too ! And I’m glad your first impressions with your products confirm it.
