Strawberry Black Sugar Mask Wash Off Skinfood Review

Hi everyone! How are you today? It's me again after a while of disappearing somewhere. I finally got time to update a new skin care post this time! Today post is just a short one though but still, enjoy! So, let's get started shall we? Today I will be reviewing this product!

I never really review about black sugar mask before in my blog although I'm a black sugar mask collector. LOL Black sugar mask has been an essential part of my skin care routine since 2014, so I thought I’d share my way to do it! I love black sugar mask because it can make your skin extra soft and smooth.

Skinfood claims this product to be "A facial mask that contains mineral-rich Brazilian black sugar along with strawberry seeds and strawberry seed oil. Applies smoothly on skin and leaves skin fresh, clean and fragrant with a strawberry scent.”

After cleansing, massage onto damp face, avoiding the eye and mouth areas. To minimize irritation, add water or toner while massaging. Leave for 10~15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

Ingredients list:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose, Glycerin, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Lanolin, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Seed, Sorbitan Laurate, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil, Water, BHT, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Caramel, CI 17290, CI 17986, Parfum

Here is the manufacture date and expire date printed on the packaging and you will see made in Korea on the packaging.

Packaging is very simple, nothing special here! This mask comes packaged in plastic transparent white tub with 100g of product. When you open it there is a paper seal separating the lid from the product to keep it clean and not messy.

This is how it looks when open it!

This masks does not come with a spatula! I dislike that because it's unhygienic and I do not have any spare spatula, so I had to scoop the product out of the jar with my finger. =(

Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits, being able to put them on my face it will be heaven for me. The mask is a dark red colour and it smells just like a rich sweet strawberry jam. ❤ The texture is pretty thick and rich, more like sugar wax but melts very easily.

There is a generous amount of strawberry seeds and plenty of small sugar granules. As you rub, you can feel the mask felt warm on skin and it turned oily. After I wash it with lukewarm water, I can still smell the strawberry, and it’s a really nice smell to walk around with.

At first I thought that it might to harsh for my skin, but it was not at all! This product works really well and is not harsh on my skin. I have very sensitive skin on my face that gets dry very easily, but whenever I have breakouts or if the weather is colder, I opt for this because it is very soft and smooth on my skin. I love the soft and supple feeling of my skin!

Overall, I'm super loving this mask and have been using it at least 2 times a week! My skin always feel super smooth and fresh after I use this, and I can see that my face looks a lot healthier after using this product.

That's it for the review! If there's some product you want me to review, please leave a comment below! I hope you enjoy this review and thank you so much for your support. When I have 1000 followers, I'll make a new giveaway for all of you. See you guys real soon in my next post!

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm Review

Hey everyone! May passes by so fast, I didn't even realize it's June now. How is your day so far? Here I am with a skin care related post! Actually I've got lots of product that I still have to review, so since I don't want to spam you with food posts, I'll try to keep a balance between skincare stuff and food posts. Which is why today you'll see a review of a skincare product instead. Yay or Nay? LOL~~

As the title says, I'm going to review on a moisturizer that I used for about 3 months, which is this Ceramidin Oil Balm from Dr. Jart+. Are you guys excited? Because I am! 
Ceramidin Oil Balm by DR. Jart is my new moisturizer! I have never used Ceramidin oil balm before, but upon reading some good things about it, I decided to try it out.
I have something to admit, I am crazy about moisturizer products. I have like countless of moisturizer product to be honest and I usually never finished them, but still, I always bought a new one. LOL Well, enough with my babbling, let's jump into the real review!

Dr. Jart+ is a brand that definitely have a higher price range, and you just get 40g of product. It is a small jar but you really don't have to use alot.

It's simple with the white and yellow box, but it's very hard to photograph properly!

Please read the following information carefully!

Dr. Jart+ wrote in the description of this product that:
A do-it-all treatment for dry and dehydrated skin. Quick changed oil from balm easily absorbs into skin and moisturizes without greasiness. Creates a Cera-Barrier shield to protect and seal in hydration. Well, that certainly sounds promising doesn't it? If you have dry skin like me, this might be a review you'd want to keep reading on! =D

The back of the box are descriptions in Korean.

Dr. Jart+ puts a lot of effort into the design of their packaging boxes.

 The manufacturing date can be found on the box.

Let's jump into the close up of the packaging!

The product itself comes in a sturdy glass jar that you wouldn't even have to worry about dropping it, but it is pretty heavy so it isn't very travel friendly.

I love how detailed all of Dr. Jart+'s product packaging is!
How to use:
Smooth on with fingers and apply to dry areas such as face, elbows, cuticles, ends of hair.

The jar is very simple with an embossed Dr. Jart+ logo on the lid.

You can typically find the manufactured date or the expiration date on the bottom of the product.

A new ceramidin oil balm is sealed with a sticker to indicate the product is never used before.

It comes with a spatula to scoop the product, which makes for convenient and hygienic application. To be honest, I don't like the tub packaging it's annoying to dip a spatula inside everyday. ><

Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Methyl Trimethicone, Polyethylene, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Hydrogenated Castor Oil Dimer Dilinoleate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ceramide NP, Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Bertholletia Excelsa Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Silybum Marianum Seed Oil, Tocopherol.

This is how it looks like when you remove the seal! Texture of this product is a hard balm where you'd have to scrap amounts out to be able to use it.

You scoop up a tiny bit of oil balm with a spatula. Taken carefully and correctly! If you take too much of the oil balm you'll probably feel a little more greasy.

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm has thicker texture with yellow oil balm color, and it has a light herbal fragrance.

It feels like a balm but melts instantly when you press it on your skin.

It is not a heavy type of greasiness, but it feels very lightweight and gets absorbed to the skin really well. It only needs around 30-40 seconds to get absorbed to the skin and and will loses the oil feel.

This is what my skin looked like after the application!
My skin is always dry because I live in South Korea, even now that it's almost summer! The ceramidin oil balm keeps my dry skin hydrated for a full 24 hours and it makes my skin look smooth and supple and it also gives me a glossy, healthy looking face that looks flawless, which is truly amazing! This balm really have high level of moist which I really need since I am a dry skin type. No other product has ever provided me full-day moisture and protection like this product has.
I use this balm every day on my face before I put on my makeup, and it makes my skin look dewy, but not greasy all day. I also applied the balm to complete my night skin care treatment. If you have dry skin and would like to try Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm, I recommend you to try it out. It's delightfully satisfying and it works greatly on your hair, cuticles, face, or anywhere your skin is dry. I wouldn't recommend this to people with normal to oily skin though.

Overall, say good-bye to dry skin and hello to "total moisture"! I am so in love with this Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm and totally works with my skin and not even once it broke me out. Never regrets buying this and I will definitely repurchase when I am done with this jar.
