[REVIEW] 3Bskin Water Splash Hydrating Jelly Mask

Hey Beauties!

I have been up to so many things these days that 24hours is simply not enough! DX
In this El Nino heat wave, my skin has been crying out for emergency attention.
I decided to try out something refreshing 3Bskin sent to me,
so let's see how things work out for me :)

 3Bskin Water Splash Hydrating Jelly Mask

First impression, I find the packaging is really cute (blue with polka dots) and guessing this product is cater mainly for young ladies who have oily and blemish skin (due to hormones that prevents us from getting weird cancers). Already very eager to try this out because it fits my skin issues and said to replenishes, restores and revitalizes the skin with intense moisturizing ingredients.


3Bskin Water Splash Hydrating Jelly Mask weighs 50gms and instructions on usage is clearly printed on the box. I appreciate the transparency practiced as there is no paper wastage where instructions are usually found on separate paper in the packaging and by just one look, I already know how this mask will work.

There are 2 methods to use this mask and it all depends to your preference;
Leaving it on for 15-30 minutes or used as a sleeping mask. 

I prefer mine as Sleeping Mask :)

 I guess they forgotten to put in the letter 'k' at the word "Mas".

Even the container that holds the mask is so cute!
(Transparent on the outside and white on the inside)
I thought it's better if the container is made of glass, rather than plastic to complete the entire cute yet classy look. But when I reflect back, glass material is heavier and pose more danger should someone accidentally dropped it. So, it doesn't really matter, so long the product works for me :)

Look at the beautiful crystal blue jelly mask <3


The texture is far more thicker than the usually hydrating or sleeping masks we have in the market (almost similar to hair gel). I have tried it for the past 1 week and I must say I liked it and it is rather impressive for a local brand!

I am not complain about the texture because I believe "The more, The better"!
Just two finger tips of the jelly mask (it would be better if you use a spatula to maintain hygiene) is sufficient to cover nicely all over my face and it is quite easy to spread.
What I love most about this 3Bskin Water Splash Hydrating Jelly Mask is the cooling refreshing feeling that comes after about 5 seconds of application! Almost like going for a dip and feeling the gentle cool breeze on your skin, like seriously! Smells like one too!! But some stinging sensation is unavoidable if there is some hidden wound on your skin > < (found out this by accident)


I have not seen any brightening effect yet (which is not my main concern; after all I am pretty fair myself :P) but my skin is less irritable now; no longer itchy due to dryness and less oil secretion (one sign of hydration slowly restored!).
*Should really consider getting one of those hand held scanner to check moisture level in future*

Overall, I am giving a rating of 9/10 and is very happy with the cooling + hydration effect :)
At least, my face get to escape the scorching heat without the hunt for air-conditioned indoor.

Glow from Within with KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit [UNBOXING + REVIEW]

If I have one confession, then this is it.
I am darn hopeless when it comes to cute and romantic stuff, heart pounding twice as fast on special occasions and love sweet surprises.
Two days before our CNY and Valentine's holiday,  KOSE decided to play the perfect "boyfriend" by delivering a HUGE HUGE surprise parcel and totally swoon me to bits.
That just made every girl's wildest dream come true.

Check out how sweet they are at the video below <3
Thank you so much to The Buttterfly Project for bringing us together and the endless support in cultivating us from mere caterpillars to the butterflies (or moths) we are today <3 

After 2 weeks of ravishing over the KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit ( and obsessively opening and closing the lovely box filled with a helium gas heart shape with pink and white balloons XD), it is time to share my thoughts on this premium beauty kit. KOSE has always walk the talk in bringing ladies moistured, brighter and even skin tone using an oriental formula.
This Trial Kit which I am about to review today consist of KOSE's Top 5 Star products in travel size.(which you can get at only RM99, Saving up to 60%!)


From Left to Right:-

1. Bihadagoyomi Mask x 3pieces
2. SEKKISEI Emulsion (70mls)
3. SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask (10mls)
4. SEKKISEI Lotion (100mls)
5. SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash (20mls)
with an Exclusive Setsuko pouch (kimono/ city chic style)

These popular products contain a trio of oriental plant extracts: Coix Seed, Melothria (White Lotus) and Angelica, which work diligently in keeping our skin in perfect condition, protected from harsh environment. 

STEP 1 : SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash

This liquid wash provides skin a healthy glow and retains moisture. I love how it comes in pump dispenser, which prevents contamination. The smell brings back sweet childhood memory as it smells just like baby body wash.


It does not produce excessive bubbling upon lathering, just sufficient light foam, which simply means it does not strip of moisture off our face. I love how it feels after washing up as it does not cause squeaky clean sensation.

SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash 
 Full size 
140mls RM131.40


STEP 2 : SEKKISEI Lotion


Having said to be KOSE's best selling product, I just can't wait to try it out for myself.
Don't be fooled by the word lotion; it has a fluid like texture for fast absorption.
 The SEKKISEI Lotion serves as a toner; refreshes and enhance skin translucency and clarity.
Smells just like SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash, I was thankful as some toner can come a little strong to the nose but was definitely surprised that it contains alcohol because it stated lotion but doesn't smells like one. Got to admit it brings some stinging sensation which is very mild and fades quickly.

What I noticed was my skin's uneven skin tone and texture has definitely improve and with more refined pores; something that I have to irritatingly deal with > < . It is also said to reduce pigmentation and freckles, enhancing the skin's metabolism to bring an even glow.
Gonna get one for my Ma soon!

How to use:
Just pour some lotion generously onto a cotton pad and gently pat on face
or
Simply soak a bihadagoyomi mask (thin breathable convenient tablet mask which offers 10x higher moisture!) and place on clean face for 5 to 10 minutes. No rinsing required!

Full size
200mls  RM180.20 | 360mls RM275.60

STEP 3 : SEKKISEI Emulsion 

Say hello to the SEKKISEI Emulsion!
Comes in pump dispenser as well, it produce a whitening emulsion, formulated with moisture Balance Polymers that helps the skin's ability in retaining moisture against ambient air.
Contains melanin production inhibitors, which in return prevents freckles, dark spots and dry rough skin caused by harmful UV rays.
It has a slightly thicker texture compared to SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash.
After applying a pump of the lotion to face with the cotton pad, I find it's is slightly oily to touch, although not visible to the eye. Personally, I have combination skin and felt this would do better for people with dry skin type, especially those in middle age onwards.

Full size
140mls RM191.80


STEP 4 : SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask

Among all the products, I loved this the most.
Unique on it's own, I was pleasantly surprised in many ways by this small fella.
First, is the color. I have always thought mask is transparent and fluid until I dispense the content.
Thick, black and sticky with touch, I got all excited to see what it can do for me :D


Yup, it does the magic-peel off move too!

 
I got my mum in laughing fits, which I really don't mind because i love to make her laugh in every ways possible (Another reason to get this!).
 It said to able to remove blackheads, dead skin cells and tighten visible pores.

Just spread across your face, carefully avoiding the eyes, eyebrows hairlines and lips area if you don't want to look like you over-shaved your eyebrows (Just joking!). Wait till it dries before peeling it off  from the outside and Voila!

I didn't notice obvious blackheads or dead skin cells removal as the holding power isn't very strong (I  have always used a stronger nose pack to tackle my black head issues).However, one thing I got to love about this product is the tighten effects! Cried in joy when finally after all these years of pore issues, I finally have a chance to have porcelain skin.

Full size
80mls RM94.30


Overall, I would give a rating of 8/l0 to this KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit!
The reason why it's 2 points short wasn't KOSE's issue. Only found the SEKKISEI Emulsion was less useful to me due to my combination skin type but my Ma definitely will benefit from it! I love the rest of the products from this kawaii Trial Kit.


LEFT (After), RIGHT (before)

Even with just one time application, you can already see the visible whitening and moistful effect!
At only RM99, you get to try out KOSE's most popular products at a remarkable low price before indulging in a full size one should you find them suitable.
Now, how does that sounds :)
