DERMAL STRAWBERRY COLLAGEN ESSENCE MASK

Hi beauties 🙂 😀

This product which i’m going to review now will suit those ladies who are using anti-ageing cream and is mostly used by ladies above 35.My mom has shared her experience of using “COLLAGEN MASK”

WHAT IS COLLAGEN MASK AND THEIR BENEFITS??

If you haven’t tried collagen face mask before, you’re in for a treat. Paper collagen face masks are infused with a variety of nourishing ingredients, not the least of which is collagen. The main structural protein found in connective tissue, collagen makes up approximately 25% to 35% of the total protein content in the human body. Collagen gives young skin its firm, supple appearance.

Gone are the days of applying goopy creams and sticky face masks that make a mess. Paper collagen masks give your skin an instant glow, yet are incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is unfold the mask and apply it to your clean face to give your skin a rejuvenating dose of collagen. Below are 5 benefits of using collagen mask.

1. Hydrate and nourish your skin

Collagen face mask comes prepackaged in a foil pouch, which keeps it moist and sterile. The mask is drenched with beneficial ingredients and maintains a tight seal on your face, ensuring that the active ingredients and moisture deeply penetrate your skin.

2. Slow down collagen depletion

As we age, collagen production diminishes. It is estimated that by the time we reach the age of 40, the body has lost approximately 15% of its collagen production. Collagen face mask slows down the breakdown of collagen and protects the collagen in your skin by combatting damaging free radicals.

3. Fight the signs of aging

Using collagen face mask helps maintain the skin’s youthfulness and fights the signs of aging. Apply the mask at least two to three times per week to improve your skin’s texture and firmness as well as reduce the size of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

4. Convenient and easy to use

Unlike other types of face masks, which require preparation, sloppy application, and cleanup, paper collagen face masks go on quickly and easily. There’s no effort involved, so you can begin to enjoy your facial immediately, whether you want to soak in the tub, watch TV, or lie down on the couch and listen to music while letting the mask do its magic. There’s no fuss or mess before, during, or after treatment.

5. Relieve stress

Stress shows on your face. Collagen face mask is a pampering treatment that not only makes your face look refreshed and rejuvenated, but also offers psychological benefits. Schedule some time each week to apply a collagen mask, sit back, and relax. Collagen mask is a spa-like treatment you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Using a Collagen Mask: Treatment Options and Side Effects

There are a number of treatment options for those who want to look younger, from cosmetic surgery to laser skin resurfacing, but when it comes to ease of use and avoiding after-procedure downtime, a collagen mask may be a useful option for some people. These masks are designed to rejuvenate skin and boost collagen production to tighten skin and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen mask kits can be purchased at spas, pharmacies, and beauty supply outlets, as well as through a multitude of online retailers. While masks like this can be beneficial to the skin, anyone who uses them should temper their expectations for rapid results and make an effort to understand how to increase collagen and improve aging skin. Therefore, before as you consider using a collagen mask, take the time to understand your skin type, how the mask will work to address your specific problems, and whether you might suffer from any side effects.

How a Collagen Mask Works

During the natural aging process, the skin loses elastin and collagen, and over time, the skin loses its ability to snap back into place after being pulled. While there is no effective way to replace the skin’s elastin, as the body mostly stops producing it in early childhood, the skin’s collagen continues to be rejuvenated throughout your lifetime. With some treatments, like collagen pills, or a collagen serum, the body’s own natural production cycle can be amplified in a variety of ways. While some treatments can be expensive and painful, such as collagen injections, others are safer and not as costly, such as a collagen mask, for example.

When applied to the face, a collagen mask is designed to tighten skin in the long term, as opposed to a surgical procedure like a dermal filler. Environmental toxins and the free radicals in the sun’s UV rays all destroy collagen, but the ingredients in a collagen mask may rejuvenate the skin by moisturizing it and boosting protein production in order to eventually smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. There are a number of different masks available, from those that come in a cream that you spread over to the skin to individually-wrapped masks that are designed to fit over the face and have holes to accommodate the nose and eyes. No matter which collagen mask application method you choose, be sure to read the ingredients and select one that is free of artificial fillers and parabens.

Preparing the Skin for a Collagen Mask

In order to achieve the best possible results with a collagen mask, it’s important that you prepare your skin before applying the product. First, wash your face with a gentle cleanser and then softly exfoliate the skin to remove any old makeup residue and to open up the pores on your face. It’s not necessary to steam open your pores before you use a collagen mask, but you can add this step for improved results, as open pores increase the product’s ability to penetrate deeper into the skin. If you use a collagen mask that you must spread on yourself, use only your fingertips and spread the gel evenly over your skin, avoiding the eyes and mouth. If you’re using a pre-wrapped mask, ensure that you apply it evenly so that the ingredients penetrate the skin more evenly.

Collagen Mask Side Effects

While dangerous side effects from a collagen mask are rare, some people have reported itching, redness, irritation, and in some rare cases, bruising, from the use of these masks. The more sensitive or thin your skin is, the more likely you are to experience these side effects.

  • Peel off the mask sheet and tab the remaining collagen essence over the face until it completely absorbs your skin.

My Mom’s Experience

The mask is a Korean brand company named”DERMAL” .After my routine and having Dermal’s Collagen Essence Mask on, I definitely felt the moisturizing and firming properties! It doesn’t sting, burn, itch or irritate. It has a lovely cooling feel to it and a slight firming feel which means its working. I had it on for 15 minutes (you can leave it on for up to 20 minutes, though) and I didn’t feel too smothered haha! I kept smoothing it over my skin and I laid down while I had it on.

After my 15 -20 minutes, i removed the collagen mask and let the wet collagen present over my skin to get absorbed itself.

What a difference! My skin was velvety smooth, silky soft and definitely firmer! I was actually really shocked! It’s still feeling the same way. Super smooth and soft. I see a bigger difference under my eyes

Maybelline electro pop Lip Balm -Berry Bomb

hi beauties ! , 😀

i have been using this product  for a long time so i just thought that it should be reviewed because its one of my favourites.!!

It comes in 4 shades-

  • Oh Orange
  • Fierce N Tangy
  • Berry Bomb

Price– 165 INR for 3.5 g( ie- 2.45 us dollar )

As per Maybelline:

  • Sheer color and shine
  • 8 hours moisturization

DSCN4717[1]

DSCN4719[2]

Shade– as compared to “oh orange” and ” pink shock” this shade was a bit disappointing….because its too sheer….pigmentation is not there….but as a lip balm it works really well…moisturizing  .It is really soft and gliding on the lips. And not sticky or gloopy at all , looks glossy on the lips.

Fragrance- it smells like that candy “poppins “( people in india must be knowing about this candy ).the fragrance isn’t annoying at all and the fragrance lingers away after 2 minutes of application.

DSCN4722[1]

DSCN4741[1]

Thumbs up 👍 – 

  • travel handy packaging
  • candy like fragrance.
  •  feels light on the lips!
  • Moisturizes lips well ans softens lips.
  • Stays for a decent time.
  • Heals dryness up to an extent.

Thumbs down 👎 –

  • pigmentation is not there
  • might melt away in really hot weather.so storage in fridge is required.

My Rating: – 4.5/5

Will I re-purchase? yes…of course

overall…i think this product should be given a try .people with dry lips would love it.its a worthy one to buy.! 🙂

Orange Lipstick-Coloressence Premia Bomb Shell Lip Color

Hi Everyone!! 🙂

I came across this lipstick while searching for a pocket-friendly orange lip shade for my bestie. She was quite impressed with the shade and recommended it to me. After seeing this product on discount, I did not hesitate to order it online

Formulation-Vitamin E, jojoba oil, and licorice extract, it claims to be 100% vegetarian. No animal ingredients.

Shelf Life:

3 years from the date of manufacture.

Packaging-it comes in lovely silver shiny box.moreover i was amazed to see the shape of the lipstick container…it was different yet chic…and not the regular one

Product Details:

Unique moisture shine and durable color.  Dazzling crystal effects that cares for your lips as it colors.  Rich in vitamin E, jojoba oil and licorice extract that reduces lines, repairs lips and lip plumper.

My Experience with Coloressence Premia Bomb Shell Lip Color:

The lipstick comes in a plastic case with a metallic silver finish.  It shuts with a single click which makes it travel friendly, it won’t open easily in the bag.  Coming to the shade, it is a dark orange, opaque shade with subtle hint of red, but no shimmer.  This shade would suit only fair skin tones, it’s a big no-no for girls with wheatish to dark complexions.It is an “occasional wear” shade and girls who like bold colors will rock it since it’s a bold orange.  This matte creamy shade is smooth in application and doesn’t settle into the fine lines.  Being nicely pigmented, the mild smell of conventional lipstick can be ignored.  It neither dries out my lips nor moisturize them.  Lasting only for 2-3 hours, it fades after eating something leaving behind a hint of shade.  The formulation doesn’t bleed.  It gets easily removed with a milk cleanser or makeup remover.

I bought this shade very eagerly but was very disappointed with the bold shade, therefore I found a way out. Firstly, moisturize your lips properly and then use this shade very sparingly and smudge it all over your lips – it gives a pretty natural lip color.

DSCN5067[1]

Thumbs up of Coloressence Premia Bomb Shell Lip Color:

  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • affordable
  • Good pigmentation.
  • Provides good coverage, especially for pigmented lips.
  • Doesn’t bleed.
  • Fragrance free.
  • “Yes” for bold matte shade lovers.
  • This shade will not suit all complexions.
  • No shimmer.
  • Smooth in application.
  • 100% vegetarian.

thumbs down of Coloressence Premia Bomb Shell Lip Color:

  • Doesn’t moisturize as it claims.
  • It’s a bold shade, so might be up everyone’s alley.
  • Not easily available in local stores.
  • Shade cannot be identified without opening the cap.

Make up brush alternatives

We wind the market flooded with different kinds of makeup brushes which make us go gaga, but not all of us can afford to get them. Sometimes its solely because of the reason that we do not do detailed make up every day and so we wonder what is the use of buying expensive brushes when we are rarely going to use them. But then there comes many occasions when we wish we had some brushes to apply our make up properly. All of us know that Vega probably offers the cheapest brushes. But even the cheapest Vega brush is around Rs 60. So I found out alternatives to four kind of make up brushes, and what’s more, each of these cost less than 35 bucks! So are you ready? Here we go!

624483479c0efa52f2abfbc771f06c96

For all the make up beginners out there, I will be talking about four kinds of brushes we need for basic eye make up.
1. Eye shadow applicator. ( used for putting the color pigment on your eyelids)
2. Angular blender. (used for filling the brows and applying gel eye liner)
3. Fluffy blender. (used for blending your eyeshadow and harsh lines on the crease)
4. Eye liner brush( used for drawing thick and thin lines on the lash lines. It is especially useful for creating the winged line)

I was just strolling around the stationary shop the other day and I came across this “hobby idea” range from Camlin. Camlin evokes childhood memories doesn’t it? I was surprised to find interesting shaped brushes which really resembled make up brushes! Intrigued, I got myself three of them. Though I do not remember exact prices, but all three cost me less than 100! Here is a look into them

1. Camlin hobby brush “filbert”#8: this flat brush serves as a very good eye shadow applicator. The flat bristles picks up the right amount of pigment and it can be compared to vega eye applicator.

2. Camlin hobby brush “angular”#4: an angular brush serves many purposes. It is used to fill the sparse areas of eyebrows and to apply gel eye liner. You can also use it to apply highlighter below the brow bone. But sadly, angular brushes are very expensive. I found the right alternative in this Camlin brush. It fills in the brows perfectly and also can be used to apply gel eyeliner. Though its size is not that small, it can be used by everybody except those with very small eye may be

alternative-eyemakeup-brushesbbbb

3. Camlin hobby brush “liner”#2: all of us have one time or the other faced the problem of dealing with bad brushes which accompany our favorite liquid eyeliners. To solve this problem, it is advisable to keep a separate eye liner brush handy. It can also be used to create that perfect “winged” look. But shelling out an extra 60 to 70 bucks( sometimes even more!) for the same is not desirable by everyone. You will get the answer in this camlin’s brush. The brush is perfect for thick and thin lines alike .

bbbbb

4. Fluffy blender: A fluffy blender is used to give your eye makeup the final perfection touch. It mixes colors together and blends out any harsh lines created by different colored eye shadows. I saw Rati using a fluffy blender in her eye make up tutorials. Since I don’t own any, I decided to try out a simple paint brush in number 5. I was surprised when I got a wonderful blending effect. Since then I have been using this brush for blending shadow on my crease and seriously do not feel the need of buying an expensive fluffy brush. You can use brush numbers 6, 7 and 8 too if you want your brush to be more “fluffy”. I use this just because it was already in my home though the bristles look scratchy, they are actually really soft!

DSCN3403
The bristles of these brushes are really decent. They do not pull or tug on the eyes at all. so for all of you who are taking small steps towards the world of makeup , these brushes will be your friends! You will get all these brushes with a hundred rupee note .I hope this was a useful post. If you like it, I will be on lookout for lip brushes and face brushes too in this range . :). Take care! Keep smiling, keep glowing
