REVIEW: Beauty Friends Essence Mask and Saizen's Nose Pack

Hello Guys!!  So this is a quick review of Beauty Friends Essence Mask and the Saizen's Nose Pack
I saw alot of Beauty Friends Essence Pack sold by many Online Shops that caters Korean Cosmetics and skin care and it has so many variants to choose from :) 12 all in all I guess, Cereal, Pomegrante, Cucumber, Marine Algae, Q10 Essence, Herbs, Lemon, Collagen, Red Ginseng, Pearl, Raspberry and Kiwi. Gladly I have a friend that retails this for only Php 50!! What a Steal! 

Looks like This ^^

has English translations which is definitely a PLUS

Herb is like super cool on the face and you can feel  some sting but its for my problematic areas like  under the lips, beside the nose where my whitehead lives


Every variant of this mask has different uses like the Pomegranate that tightens pores, Royal Jelly for skin elasticity, and so on which is very helpful because not all the time you need to make your face elastic or tighten your pores. Of course it depends on what your skin's need on that particular time, right but at the same time it helps your skin to moisturize and as we all know that moisturizing your skin helps prevent wrinkles and helps your skin to remove dirt because the mask gives some good stuff so your skin rejects the dirt,oil that causes whiteheads,blackheads,pimples


For some reason, I'm kinda addicted to the stingy feel of the mask that I  just cannot get enough of! It is a nice product because it makes your face to exfoliate especially when I have pimples, it helps it to heal well and faster. Also, I noticed that the pimples will not scar because of the exfoliation and moisturization (if that's a word, but I hope you got what I mean) going around mah face. plus its really,really CHEAP ^^ compare to those whose at Watsons that does not work for me.

So after I put some mask, I always put on some of Saizen's Nose Pack since I got it because for me it is the best time to put some nose pack cos it helps your pores to remove those gross stuff easier because your pores are widely open ^^

You see those little beasts! I hate them alot RIP


The Saizen's Nose Pack helps remove my whiteheads only AFTER I put on me mask but if your gonna use it alone it doesn't work. One time I unintentionally overtimed it to dry but I still don't care,  it peeled my skin it really hurts! I thought that was the whiteheads! So I said to myself, "No Pain, No Gain, but when I saw my nose MAN! its BLEEDING!!!  so I'm gonna give it a..


because doesn't work  independently and doesn't get the job well done because after I peeled it then I try to check my pores if the whiteheads are gone they are still there! I mean yeah the nosepack helped but it only got let say  25/50 of them maybe I was expecting too much knowing the fact that It was made for men's skin conditions= bigger pores to clean= bigger and nastier whiteheads!

How To's : Carton Trays

Do you ever wonder how on earth can you fix this kind of mess(I know! not a pretty site) without spending too much and at the same time help Mother Nature? Well, here's how!!

First, you gonna need these stuffs:

Any kind of wrapping paper
Any kind of Carton Box
Scotch tape
Double-sided tape

this I got from my favorite German Wafers ^^

Oh, this one is completely optional bought this from The Landmark

First things first:  

you wanna make sure that your carton box is completely  clean

Let's Start!!!

then you wanna cut the wrapping paper same size as your carton box

Put some glue to the carton box but remember not to put too much glue because it might soften the carton box and the wrapping paper  and we don't want that to happen 

So here, I am spreading the glue with my bare hands to even out the surface
let it dry for a moment

Fun Fact!:
 Did you know that when you say "Give Me a Moment" counts to 90 Seconds! 
So when someone tells you to give him/her a moment start counting from 1-90

Okay.. Going Back
you wanna tape the back for security and sturdiness

and also the sides

Here is the tricky part you wanna carefully draw a a narrow rectangle using your cutter and cut the upper part of the rectangle all the way leaving the base of the rectangle uncut. Do not use a heavy hand or your going to miss the fun part 

You need to push CAREFULLY the narrow rectangle inside your box

your box should look like this

then cut another (this depends on you liking if you don't wanna put your full efforts to it well its really up to you)

Should look like this. 

You see the messy carton residues?  

you also want to tape that because it will give some support to the lines and clean the mess 

you see that line? you're going to tape that on the middle rectangle for sturdiness

you see how nice it looks when it is taped plus it makes your tray a little water resistant so your not going to worry too much when you spill something inside

The next few steps is completely optional, if you do have lots of time like I do..

measure your tray box and size the translucent paper 

then, you wanna put some double-sided tape because if you will use glue it will be easily removed and this paper doesn't like to be used with a scotch tape so I need to use my trusty double-sided tape.


the finished product!

Looks pretty cool and organized don't ya think? and this also exercises you creativity and your skills plus you'll be proud of what you did! Especially when someone visits your room  Yey!

One time my cousin saw this and said, "Wow how pretty! where did you buy this?" and then I said PROUDLY, "No, I made it" then she said that I am very skilled that just earned self-esteem points its really overwhelming

Oh excuse me and my twin's picture at the back haha 

Good Luck doing this!!!
