It wouldn't be wrong to say that western skincare is lacking when  compared to the Asian skincare.  The technology and the ingredients used in Asian skincare are quite effective in treating various skincare problems. With that being said I am very happy when I see brands come up with products that are affordable and give satisfactory results
Garnier recently came out with these tissue masks aka the sheet masks which don't claim to do a lot many things another than give skin a boost of  hydration




I was sent two masks by Lotus Pr from the range to try out .
I will start with the super hydrating replenishing mask



This mask has pomegranate extracts and hyaluronic acid. It is suitable for sensitive skin type
According to the direction this mask should be applied to the face for 15 minutes after which one will notice rehydrated , smooth and radiant skin. Using this mask Continuously  for one week will reduce fine lines and give plumper skin

As soon as I tore open the foil I was met with a pleasant scent now be warned that the scent is strong and lingers through out the duration the mask is applied. In the beginning it smelled nice but then after some time it began to smell like alcohol. The mask has two sheets. One is blue scratchy cover like thing which you are supposed to discard and the other is a soft tissue like white mask. In my opinion the blue cover is just a nuisance so just get rid of it as soon as you open the mask because it makes it so hard to settle the actual tissue mask on your face ( i wasted a good 10 minutes trying to understand that stupid thing and finally took the wise decision and threw it)




This mask literally just clings onto the face without much effort. I seriously just roamed around the house with this on and wasn't afraid of it falling off ( some thing I haven't experienced with Korean sheetmasks) it just sticks to the face like second skin. The sheet is generously drenched with serum .( almost dripping). But the fit is terrible . The cut out  for the eyes is small and placed a bit high so when I applied it onto my face it was almost invading the margins of my lower lid. The cut out for the lip is not comfortable either.  The size of the mask is good though( I have a small face so I tucked out the ends under my chin )
I left this mask on for more than 15 minutes because I tried my best to take a presentable selfie but no matter how many poses I tried I still looked like psycho killer.๐Ÿ˜…


After removing the mask I tried my best to tolerate the tacky feel of serum but it was just too much for my oily skin and eventually I had no choice but to wash my face. My skin even after washing felt soft and plump. This surprising brightened my complexion which is new as it didn't claimed to do so. I waited for the dreaded pimples to pop up the next day but they didn't.  Altogether for the price this mask is great for people with dry to combination skin. For oily skin beauties it would be best to use this in winter or try out the variant designed for oily skin. This is also great when you want to have a fun pampering skincare session with friends or you want to prep you skin for some special occasion ( Eid or wedding maybe  ๐Ÿ˜)

The review of this product has been pushed off  for quite some time. I apologise for the delay but I wanted to try this cleanser properly to analyze all the properties (the goods and the bads) and to see for myself if all the hype which surrounds this cleanser was true.


Even though I totally love my Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar water, I wanted to know if there was a less expensive alternative available in the market. I purchased the 125ml version of this cleanser. This also comes in a big 400ml bottle too which retails for 500 Pkr
About the packaging:
This has a very chic looking bottle which is transparent and has a pink cap. The cap is secure( I haven't noticed any spillage so far) on the bottle it claims that you can get about 60 uses from a single bottle which is amazing. Because this 125 ml cost about 200 pkr and to me 60 uses translates as 2 months of usage,very cosy effective๐Ÿ‘


About the product:
This is just like water,transparent clear and has no scent. Upon shaking the bottle some bubbles are formed. The cleanser dispenses out from the bottle quite easily without making a mess. I used this by soaking my makeup removing cotton pad with micellar water and then gentle wiping my face with it. This removed the foundation from my face with one swipe. I had to go over my lips twice to remove the matte lipstick. It removed the eyeliner and eyeshadow without much effort but for mascara I had to hold the cotton pad on my lashes for a minute to loosen up the mascara



  I am quite impressed with its performance. I have heard a lot people complain that this made their skin breakout luckily I haven't experience any skin irritation or pimples while using this product so far. One thing though this leaves a slightly moist residual feel to the skin. I usually follow this up with a face cleanser so its not much of a problem for me but for those who want their skin to feel dry . You might have to consider trying out some other makeup remover.
Are you curious to know how this compares to Bioderma sensibio H2O Micellar water?? Stay tuned to my blog to see an unbiased comparison post coming up soon
Until next time

Hello
The holy month of Ramadan is almost here and I am so excited ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Even though it has been over a month since i got measles my skin has not come back to its normal pattern. So my there has been some major changes skincare routine to deal with the dry flaky skin.

Before I share the products with you guys here is a request. If you haven't got measles as of yet please get vaccinated because trust me adult measles are more severe than childhood measles. The disease is very exhausting and takes a very long time to recover. The sign and symptoms are severe and more pronounced. And the measles scar take a long time to disappear so just save your self from all the trouble and get vaccinated. As vaccination gives life long protection
Ok back to the original post. I will start of with cleanser first. My skin is normally oily. So I use cleanser which reduce oil production and combat acne but as my skin is now very dry I have switched to a hydrating cleanser by nature republic. Now this is basically a cleanser to remove makeup but honestly jt was not doing a good job at removing makeup so now I use this as a face wash. This aloe cleanser leaves the skin soft and moisturized.


Moving on to makeup removers i like to switch between bioderma sensibio H2O micellar water and the Garnier micellar water. Both are gentle on the skin and remove makeup without much effort.
To achieve smooth, flake free skin I use a very mild and gentle green tea scrub by ST.Ives. This is has such fine round granules which are non abrasive and very gentle on the skin. Plus the exfoliate the skin quite thoroughly.
For moisturizer I like to use oriflame tea tree moisturizer during day time and at night I use some thing more hydrating so stelatopia cream by mustella is my choice. Both moisturize the skin well without leaving an oily film.




Even though my skin is dry I like to wear a mud mask once every week, currently i am using the one by freemans ( oatmeal and avocado version)
 
I like to spritz my face with rose water during the day. This makes my face look dewy and fresh.
Lastly I am enjoying the scent of Maybelline baby lips lip balm in berry crush. This unfortunately doesn't leave a tint on the lips but does keeps my lips soft and smooth
That's all for my current routine. Would you recommend any skincare product I should try out?
