Nexcare 95% natural mask packs for face and eyes

Nexcare Premium Facial Mask Pack Nexcare 95% natural mask packs for face and eyes
If there’s one item that I do not use on my face, it’s the ubiquitous sheet mask. A favorite amongst most ladies and a big thing in Asia, sheet masks just do not feature in my skincare routine. I did try them back when I was younger but found them to be quite cumbersome. And when I moved camp to use natural/organic skincare, it became harder to find a sheet mask in this category. So yeah, I was kinda excited when I learned that Nexcare has launched their premium facial mask pack range using 95% ingredients. I just had to check out if they’re for real!

Made in Korea
Nexcare is by 3M, the same company that is famous for their post-it stickers. Many of you are probably already familiar with the Nexcare Acne Patch, which I use pretty frequently too. The Nexcare Premium Facial Mask Pack is one of the latest products from the brand, along with their Whitening Eye Patch, Anti-Wrinkle Eye Patch, Smile-Line Patch and Nose Patch. All of them are made in Korea and said to be formulated with 95% natural ingredients. So what exactly are these ingredients and what makes up the other 5%?

In conjunction with the Earth Hour last Saturday, Apivita showcased one of its best-selling products, the 100% Natural Wax Candle made with pure essentials oils from its aromatherapy range. I don’t mind candles as many of them smell great but I am not that huge a fan. Well, let’s just say they don’t feature in my shopping list at all. However, I decided to accept the gift of this candle from Apivita as it is said to be able to triple-duty as a hand moisturizer and lip balm.

Blessed Lunar New Year to all my Chinese readers and if you’re not Chinese and you celebrate too, well, ENJOY! I’m not really hot about celebrating this time as compared to Christmas but still, I’m grateful to have some time to spend with my family and hopefully to settle some unsettled business. Most of all, to do nothing much but to eat and watch drama series. Time to catch up with Takuya Kimura whom I’ve stopped watching for a good two years or more.

Project cosmetic labeling: inspired by pretty stickers

Cosmetic date labeling Project cosmetic labeling: inspired by pretty stickers

So whatsup with this project? Well, it’s really me labeling my cosmetics with these cute little stickers that record when I started using the products. Some of you may remember a challenge I issued back in 2009 and I’d shown how I labeled my products with normal looking round stickers. Well, I’ve upgraded! I now label my stuff with cute looking stickers from Korea! Well, I needed to motivate myself to get back to the process of labeling because I’d stopped for awhile due to sheer laziness and something visually appealing does keep me interested for longer. Oh yeah, I’m girlie like that!
