Masks, Masks, Masks.

I tried to do a spending freeze on non-essentials till June, but I got bored and went to the shops yesterday. Broke my spending freeze by buying masks, shoes & handbags.

I got a 20% discount, so bought some masks from The Body Shop. Too bad I missed the warehouse sale. I like paper masks for convenience but like to use wash off masks too, especially those that exfoliate/deep cleanse or smell great. 013copy I think I'm really easy to please? I tried and like the Blue Corn 3-in-1 scrub mask alot.

How to use it: Remove your makeup, (I also washed my face with my face wash but the SA said it's optional), dry it, then put on the mask. Let it dry sufficiently, then wet it and scrub your face.

It's refreshing (minty) and the scrub granules are not rough. I found it abit drying, so I'm keeping it for PMS periods when my T-zone produces abit more oil. I don't advise using this more than once a week. It feels like it did clear out the gunk in my pores. I've not tried the other 2 masks yet, but the SA said they're good for dry skin. I'll let you know how I feel about them after I've used them. I'm sure I'll like the Honey one too, cause it smells so good. The Aloe one is supposed to replenish moisture and enhance the sensitive skin's resilience. Since I'm on the topic of masks, I'll share more hauls I got when I was in Korea and Japan: When I was in Korea, Bittenbefore gave me a Caviar mask from Skin Food to try. I found it really made my skin moist and supple, when my skin was quite dry and stressed from all the flying and the weather. So when I hit the shops, I bought a few more and some others. A sample of what I got. 014copy These are the whitening ones which I bought. I haven't tried the Skin Food, which are patches for the cheek area. The Fancl and Blanchir are mild, but brighten the skin tone. 015copy An aside, I scrapbook for my hobby and haul stuff for scrapbooking too and lately, I've found myself having too much scrapbooking stuff. A friend suggested that I pack my extras into kits for ebay sale, and I tried packing last night.

Does this look interesting enough to you, have enough stuff to make you interested in buying? The large circle with words are raw chipboard that you can decorate and the oblong item below the photo are stamps.

006copy The photography is lacking, I admit that. I need to find new angles, better arrangement and better light for photographing the items. I seem to think I need to add more stuff. I also don't know how to price them. And I need to figure out the text for the ebay sale. :p

It's bothersome, isn't it? It seems like too much work, LOL, I'm on the verge of calling it quits before I've even properly started. :p © Copyright. All rights reserved.

Lol! you hauled again!

I keep telling myself that it's better than overeating :)

I've never bothered with fleabay because it's too much trouble! Jamal is an occasional evilbay user, but you have to have one photo for each item.

I always LOVE your pictures in your posts...Scrapbooking looks like so much fun.
I will make a mental note of the Blue Corn mask: I have combination skin as well, and I love a refreshing mask every now and then

Love the scrapbooking extras. I have way too much too. I love the chipboard letters, they are so fun to work with. I usually buy papers like that too, bright flowery and just fun to look at.

Shopn'Chomp said...

Omg, all those masks! Great haul!

LOL at Jamilla's comment.. ya hauling is def better than overeating or undersleeping. I think your pics are really nice, you don't need to change your style. Also, gluck w/ebay.. I'm quite obsessed with it these days, selling junk to fund my beauty spending!! hehe :D

Oh, please make mask reviews! I never put on masks--I'm lazy and my husband gets scared of me haha--but if you really super endorse a mask, I'll try it!
