Hip Hop Hooray, it’s Saturday!
Hi friends, it is time again to spill our cans. You too can spill your trash and opinions. Just email me your photos and thoughts at: mailboxjunkie808@ gmail.com
100% Pure Caffeine Mask – Hello, my lovely.
Missha Pure Source Sheet Mask – Olive: So I’d heard some complaints about Missha sheet masks, but if I get a mask, I’m not going to just throw it away. The paper was a little stiff on this one and the smell was really alcohol-y. But the real surprise was the crazy burning that started within seconds of putting it on my face. Ack! I’ve had masks burn and leave my skin looking great (see 100% Pure above), but this came on strong and fast, and I was already dubious and didn’t want to risk it. I immediately whipped it off and put on…
Freeset Donkey Milk Skin Gel Mask Pack – Healing: It took a while for the burning to subside, but when I took this one off, my face looked normal. Crisis averted? Or never any crisis at all?
Llang 3 Self Clinic Step Kit – Pore Control: Step 1 was a large AHA cotton swab. Step 2 was a transparent, semi-solid black jelly. It was a little difficult to get out of the package, but there was lots of it. Step three was the sheet mask. I don’t know if it’s just psychological or if the black sheet masks uses a different material, but I swear that they stay moist longer.
CosRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask: I know there’s a lot of hate out there for foils, but I was super excited to get this one because I’ve been wanting to try the product. Despite the name it’s made from lots of propolis and zero honey. But it was a nice, light jelly. I’m testing out a few sleeping packs right now, but if none of them grab me, I may circle back around to this.
ToGoSpa Ice Water Eyes: I thought I had used up the last of these, but was pleased to find a few more. This time I’ve really used them all up. Or maybe my beauty storage closet is actually a magical cupboard that dispenses infinite eye gels. Probably the latter.
Tony Moly The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Cream: “Chok chok” is the Korean term for skin that is moist and pump and bouncy. Which sounds not all good now that I’m typing it out, but really is, I swear! At any rate, I’ve been enjoying these thin gel-cream products this summer.
Nooni Seed Essence Toner: This is supposed to be a moisturizing toner, but it’s very thick and applies more like a serum. It’s not bad, but back to Missha Time Revolution for me.
Naawk SPF 50 Sunscreen Continuous Spray: This one goes in my sunscreen hall of shame. I’m not a fan of spray sunscreens anyway, but this one had such a tiny spray radius that it took forever to apply. It was thick and greasy and shiny and NEVER DRIED OR ABSORBED. It just stayed shiny wet forever. Blech. I got this as part of a prize at a running event, but if I had paid for it I definitely would have asked for my money back!
I hate ending my trash talk with a negative (note to self: put nice product wrapper on right side of photo), so can I just say thank y’all? No one if my life has any interest in skincare (or boxes), so it’s great to have people to share with.
Ok so ignore the sea precious pearls because that got reviewed 2 weeks ago (mama brain).
Josh Rosebrook Balance Shampoo and Conditioner:
I actually bought these for the hubby (that was my excuse) because I saw on Instagram that it can be used for people with scalp conditions (which he has). I had personally been wanting to try it but couldn’t justify the cost. He was formerly using selsun blue. Believe it or not, this stuff has been working for him. I had to stop using it because now that it is summer and I am not preggo, I am exercising more intensely so I am washing my hair more (and fyi I have waist length hair). So if I used this stuff 4-5times a week, I would use up the bottle soooo quickly and then I wouldn’t be able to afford my boxes #priorities. I am almost out of my current shampoo so you will see that next week.
Pure Anada foundation sample:
This was my first natural foundation that I have tried and I did indeed like it but now that I have further down the rabbit hole I have found ones I like much more. But hands down they still have the best shade range of any natural foundation.
Red Flower Body Wash
This came in the big overflow sale box from Good Being. Meh, it gets the job done. I just don’t like body wash for some reason. Call me crazy.
Province Apothecary Brow Serum
So I was all set to toss this because the smell literally drives me insane. However, when i googled it, this article by the Green Beauty Goddess Hermes Hippie came up about the product. So I of course had to read it and now I am set to keep it and force myself to use it again……
Califia Farms Mocha Mexican:
Holy yum. This mocha doesn’t just have chocolate and cinnamon. It has a kick to it too! I love Califia Farms cold brew coffees. They taste as rich as a frappuccino but with half the sugar. This one might be my new fav!
