Review: Youthful Glow Sugar Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

I have tried out a handful of Klairs products since getting into kbeauty and I really like their simple approach to their brand and formulations. Of course, not everything is going to work for everyone – it all comes down to skin type and personal preference really. However, I trust the brand a lot so I’m always down to try something new from them.

One of the products that had been catching my eye on Instagram is the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask. I have actually been eying since the first launch but it was not yet available on the main Wishtrend website – it’s here now though and I’m so glad that I can finally satisfy my sugary curiosity! Although it is described as a sugar mask, it is actually multi-purpose and can also be used as a scrub.

It is marketed as being suitable for all skin types but reviews seem to say this is more targeted for dry to normal skin. Since I lean more to the oily side, I was more limited with how I can use the product. However, I have been trying it out for a while and I’m really confident that I can give this a thorough review!

So, if you want to check out the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask then pop onto Wishtrend (where it’s selling for USD$24). Otherwise, here’s the review!

Review: Glitter Jelly Mask Pack (Elleybear)

Dazzling Face Party Elleybear Purple Space Glitter Jelly Mask Review BBCosmetic

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that there is an affiliate code advertised.

Sheet masks are a kbeauty staple but, if you’re looking for something just a little bit fancier, then hydrogel masks are the way to go! This type of material tends to adhere better and, while they usually contain less essence, the hydrogel actually holds hydration in for longer so I find that the effectiveness of these masks are far superior. I’ve used a lot of these in the past and definitely turn to them for my ‘special’ days.

Recently, I got my hands on the Glitter Jelly Mask Pack from Elleybear – these come in three colour variants targeting either anti-wrinkle, whitening or soothing. In retrospect, I probably should have went for either whitening or soothing (the pink or green variant respectively) but the truth is that I’m a sucker for anything purple and so I’m now using anti-wrinkle masks haha! Well, it’s never too early?

The Glitter Jelly Mask Pack, which comes in a pack of five, is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$29.95. I have to say though, these are pretty expensive for hydrogel and, in my opinion, there are better masks out there with a better price point. If you do want to grab it though, or any other masks from BB Cosmetic, you can always get an easy 5% off with my code (QAL3F6ZA8YZ).

Now, let’s get into this review because I have some thoughts!

Review: Premium Moisturising Ampoule Mask (APLB)

Style Story APLB Kbeauty Review Premium Moisturizing Ampoule Mask

This product was gifted to me as an event competition prize. I was not paid for this review and affiliate links are not used in this post.

How often do you sheet mask? I have a massive collection of them but I’m usually pretty lazy with it. Lately though, I’ve been trying to work through my stash before it all expires so I’ve been masking almost every night. It gives me the opportunity to just close my eyes and chill for a moment, which is pretty important for me and my high anxiety personality.

One of the masks that I’ve been really enjoying is the Premium Moisturising Ampoule Mask from APLB, which comes in a set of five. You can get it in three different colour variations (Blue, Yellow and Pink) which are all targeted for different skin concerns.

This is actually my last APLB review (for now) out of the package that StyleStory had sent to me. In general, I have had mixed opinions with this brand – although they are all good, their formulas are generally targeted for sensitive skin so some were too gentle for me. My personal favourite would be their Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil (which I also wrote about here) and these sheet masks would fall a close second!

If you’d like to check this out, this is available on StyleStory for AUD$29.95 or is currently on sale for AUD$24.95! Before you jump onto their website though, let’s kick into this review.

Review: Patting Splash Mask (Blithe)

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

So I first decided to try out the Blithe Patting Splash Mask because it was so unique – I used masks all of the time and I’ve tried some pretty wild things (hello foot peeling mask) but I have never come across a ‘splash’ mask. To be honest, I didn’t really understand what it was either but, now that I’ve tried it, I have zero regrets. In fact, if I had actually searched up some reviews about this before hand, I wouldn’t have hesitated either – I’m definitely not the only one who loves this.

This is a liquid mask solution that is known to give pretty much instant results. The application of it can be a bit messy and there’s a learning curve to it but, once you get it, it’s pretty enjoyable. I first tested this out by using it every day for around 4 days, which was fine on my skin, but I read some (pretty reliable) reviews online that recommended to use it every second or third day instead, so I switched it up. Since this can be a bit pricey, I think that it’s better to be able to use it less often too anyway.

So this mask is currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$35.91 for a 200mL bottle – which is enough for approximately 30 uses – or USD$29 for a 150mL bottle. It comes in three different variants too but the one that I have is the Energy Citrus and Honey. Jump onto their website if you want to pick it up too but otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Review: Long-Haul Hydration Mask (In-Flight Magic)

In-Flight Magic Long Haul Hydration Mask Skincare Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

Although I don’t take flights as regularly as some people, I’m still someone who loves to travel and I try to take at least one or two trips per year (and they are usually pretty long haul). I’m personally not someone who really enjoys plane rides – I had a phobia of it for a long time and have one calmed down in the past few years. I don’t mind airplane food most of the time, but hate having to essentially sit up for long hours. Another thing that always bothers me is how ridiculously dry it is on airplanes. Of course, I know that it’s unavoidable considering that you’re high up in the air in an enclosed, air conditioned space, but I have to try and do something about it.

I would usually bring on board a sheet mask and some basic skincare to soothe things, but it’s a bit awkward when the stewardess’ come by and I have a white fabric over my face – not to mention not knowing where to discard it after. Of course, In-Flight Magic came up with the perfect solution!

This is a new Australian brand that just launched with their Long-Haul Hydration Masks (available in original and oil-free). This is an invisible cream mask that can be worn on flights to keep hydration locked in for extended periods of time. Since I’m not going on any trip until the end of the year, I chose to try this product out as a sleeping mask (over some very basic skincare).

These masks are available on the In-Flight Magic website for AUD$9 for a 5mL sachet (I got approximately 4 uses out of this) – at just over $2 per application, this is pretty well priced if you are keeping it for travel only but is a bit expensive as a sleeping mask. I’m personally looking forward to when they release the 75mL tubes (which are listed on the website as coming soon).

So, let’s get into this review!

Review: MediAnswer Set (About Me)

StyleKorean Review About Me Medianswer Collagen Lift Up Band and Firming Up Mask

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

Last week I wrote a review on a Ground Plan product that had been sent to me by StyleKorean prior to its release. This week, I’ll be reviewing a set from the About Me brand – a beauty brand from the Korean conglomerate Samyang group that claims to draw knowledge of the vast number of sectors that the company has worked in. This set not on the website yet but the individual masks from this set are available. This MediAnswer Set contains the Collagen Firming up Mask and the Collagen Lift Up Band, both anti-aging products that claim to work absolute miracles.

Being fairly young and having enough baby fat on my face to be confused for a silly teenager, most anti-aging products don’t show up result on my skin. At the very most, they would be useful as a preventative method. For this reason, I also enlisted the help of my mum to test these out (especially the Collagen Lift Up Band). The Firming Up Mask I used on myself only so I will give my thoughts based off of my own skin.

Although I don’t know the price for this set yet, the individual masks are available and – to be honest – the price is a bit expensive but still relatively affordable in comparison to Western high end brands. The Collagen Firming Up Mask (in a box set of 4) sells for USD$28.12, whilst the Collagen Lift Up Band (also in a set of 4) sells for USD$34.65 – they are both available on the StyleKorean website now along with a wide range of other products from the About Me brand.

Before I let you hop off onto their website though, let’s get into this review!

Review: A’Bloom (Althea)

Althea Korea A'Bloom Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

Althea Korea is absolutely killing it with their new releases. Aside from the great curation that they have on their website, I have also been really enjoying the products from their exclusive (i.e. in-house) brands – from super creamy and pigmented lip tints, to a lightweight and velvet-soft sunscreen, it seems like they are taking all of the right steps! Although I haven’t loved everything (their Milk Peel Cream Mask was not a favourite of mine, although many others enjoy it), I am generally really excited when ever they have new product launches.

In the past, all of their exclusive releases have been under their main Althea Collection (which includes their Bare Essentials and Petal Velvet line) but this one is a little bit different in that they just launched a new brand!

This is called A’Bloom and is like the more cute, fun and youthful little sister to the core brand. At the moment, the range consists of four fruit based sheet masks (Watermelon, Peach, Avocado and Lemon Lime), the BHA Blackhead Blaster and two Meringue Puffs (in either the Baby size or the Giant). Prices are ridiculously affordable with sheet masks starting at 10 for USD$3.50 (or 50 cents if bought individually) and the most expensive item is the BHA Blackhead Blaster which is still a steal at USD$4. This range is definitely great if you’re on a budget or just want to try out something new that won’t break the bank.

So, I was lucky enough to have been sent the entire range to test out so let’s get into this review. I want to go into every single item here for you! Let’s go!

New Release: A-Clear Soothing Line (Neogen)

Neogen Dermalogy A Clear Soothing Collection Review Kbeauty

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

Acne and break outs aren’t an issue for everyone (those lucky ducks) but I have personally never met someone who would say no to clear skin. I used to get quite a handful of pimples around high school time but never had acne or problem skin, so to speak. However, my skin type has been changing a lot lately, possibly due to aging as well as a very hectic lifestyle – so I have been trying out a bunch of different anti-acne products.

Some have worked really well for me, some not at all and others were too strong.

It was at this time that Neogen released their new A-Clear Soothing Line and I couldn’t have been more excited to try it out. Their products have been really good for my skin and I had very high expectations for these new releases. Here, I have almost their full A-Clear Soothing collection:

I am missing their A-Clear Aid Soothing Spot Patch, but I will likely purchase them myself soon – once I run out of the ones I am currently working through. For what I do have, I haven’t managed to try out everything extensively yet but will be giving you a good overview of their new releases, as well as giving you my personal thoughts and impressions when I can!

Let’s get into this!

Review: Cicapair Calming Mask (Dr Jart+)

Dr Jart+ Cicapair Calming Mask Lets Face It Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

After finding out that I’m a fan of Dr Jart+ products – in particular their masks – Let’s Face It sent me an extra mask from their line to try out! I wanted to use this much earlier but with how crazily busy my life has been lately (as you might notice from my stranger behaviour on Instagram), it’s been so difficult to even find an opportunity to sit down with a sheet mask. I did finally find a half hour to relax a little though – I was still working as I did so, but gave myself the time to also do some skincare – and I’m pretty happy with this!

This is the Cicapair Calming Mask from Dr Jart+ which wells for AUD$6.95. It is a bit high in comparison to some roadshop brands but I find that most masks from their brand can be a little bit more expensive – and are generally worth it. You can get this mask from Let’s Face It, along with others from the brand. Also check out my review of the new COSRX Calming Liquid Mild that they had also sent me to review earlier on.

And without further ado, let’s get right into this review!

Review: Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask (Belif)

BONIIK Kbeauty Review Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

There are some brands out there that you hear about a lot but, somehow, never end up trying any of their products – whether it is because of the price or sometimes just because you never really have a chance to. For me, Belif falls into both of these categories. Although they are an independent brand, their price points can be a little bit expensive – not exorbitantly but just a little. In addition, I do have some of my favourite products, so I was never sure if I should be splurging a bit to test this out.

With my recent collaboration with BONIIK, I decided to pick up a tub of this Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask to try out. I did go a little bit over budget (from the store credit they gave me) so I guess this product is partly gifted (hmm). Belif’s most famous product is the True Cream Aqua Bomb, which is their original cult favourite, but I chose to try out something different from the same range instead – the Sleeping Mask. I did try out a lot of other products from BONIIK too and chose this exact product (as well as the Hanyul Watery Calming Gel) because I loved the texture of it and how it felt on my skin.

And I have to say that I have no regrets. I had a really great time testing out this product so I can say immediately that this is going to be a positive review. This is a really great quality product that delivers on their claims so I would definitely recommend checking this out – although they are more expensive than an average mid-tier road shop brand (like Laneige), it is definitely worth it if you are wanting to splurge a bit!

This product is currently selling for AUD$69 and, if you’d like to get your hands on this product, then check out the BONIIK website. If you are a Sydney-sider like myself, you can also drop into their stores at Westfield Sydney or World Square (Sydney CBD). Remember that you can use my code online and offline for 15% off your purchase too – valid until the end of March – OHMYSTELLAR15

So, let’s get right into this review!
