Review: Shake & Shot Rubber Mask (Dr.Jart+)

Dr Jart Shake and Shot Shaking Rubber Soothing Luminous Shot Mask StyleKorean Kbeauty Review

Okay so I finally tried this rubber mask out after staring at it in intimidation for the past week or two and, I swear, I am ready to stock myself up because I love this product so much! I have had a bad experience with a rubber mask in the past, where I took so long to try and combine the product that it solidified before I could use it, so I was really cautious about this. That being said, I think that I actually didn’t mix this up as evenly as I should have but it was still ridiculously effective. This product has honestly blown me away and I can’t wait to share it with you all.

So, this is the Shake & Shot Rubber Soothing Mask from Dr.Jart+, a Korean brand that has since also become very popular and trusted overseas. I personally haven’t tried anything from their brand before but I know that they’re especially popular for their skincare range, which is meant to be suitable for even sensitive skin and – of course – highly effective. Their rubber masks, which have that iconic creepy baby face, also went viral on Youtube and you’ll probably find reviews on it easily!

Their products can be a bit expensive, especially when you’re trying to buy their products overseas, but this mask is currently on sale at StyleKorean for USD$6.16. The full price is USD$12.35 and, to be honest, it is pretty expensive for a one use mask. However, it is really effective so I might still use these on special occasions. Or when my skin really needs it.

So, let’s jump right in!

Review: Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch (Hemish)

Hydrogel Eye Patch Bulgarian Rose Water Heimish 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.

I have only used hydrogel eye masks a handful of times in my life, and it’s usually because someone’s given me a pack to try out. I actually really like hydrogel material masks, and I find the little eye ones really helpful to use while you’re working (or when you’d had a long day and just need to relax) – they tend to adhere really easily and, regardless of how effective the serum is, the gel is very cooling and good for depuffing eyes. The only thing that has always held me back is the cost of them!

Hydrogel masks in general tend to cost more than a standard cotton sheet mask, and with a product that I would want to use on most nights, the cost adds up very quickly. However, a great thing is that some brands have been releasing them in tubs instead of individual packs and these are a lot more cost efficient! One such product is the Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch; I previously tested out their Rose Water Mist Serum and, since I found that product to be very hydrating (and pleasant smelling), I figured that this would be a good way to go.

This product is selling on StyleKorean for USD$22 (which is similar in price to the Mist Serum) so you can definitely check it out there if you’re wanting to get this yourself. Otherwise, let’s just right into this review because this product is so aesthetic.

Brand Spotlight: PACKage

Pack-age Float Mask Bundle BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

PACKage is a fairly new brand where it comes to Korean sheet masks (and masks in general), but they’re definitely getting some attention online – most famously for their ‘mask bundle’ which I will be reviewing for you today! When BB Cosmetic sent me some products to test out, they were also super generous and sent me some extras of the masks and I’m now trying to decide if I’ll be sharing them out to my family or saving them for a give away – or hoarding them because they’re super cute!

There isn’t a lot of information that I can find about this brand, so my introduction here will be short, but read on to see a box set of their masks – perfect for the skincare fanatic and gifting – as well as reviews on the individual products! The masks for available for purchase on BB Cosmetic and you can buy the separately (Everyday Bouncy Sheet MaskMelt Me Softly Blackhead Nose Strip Pack, or the Monthly New Feet Foot Peeling Liquid Mask) or in the box set, Float Mask Bundle Set Hapoom Collaboration, which includes 17 masks in total. They have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Product Launch: Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask Review Wishtrend

This product was sent to me by Wishtrend 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.

I am so excited that I seriously don’t know how to begin this post. Recently, I was contacted by Wishtrend to test and review a new product that was launching from Klairs on September 22nd. Now, this isn’t just a product that was new in store – no, it is actually the first time that I have received a product to trial pre launch! I am so happy to be given this opportunity and, in return, I now endeavour to give the most detailed and helpful review that I can.

So this new product is a Vitamin E Mask from Klairs, which stand by their motto of Simple but enough. It is a sister product to their Vitamin Drop serum (which I haven’t had the chance to try yet – hint hint) and had hydrating and anti-aging effects, as well as a brightening effect when it is used in conjunction with Vitamin C products. It is a multifunctional product that can be used as a mask, a sleeping pack or a daily moisturiser – although I personally wouldn’t use it as the latter since I’m very conscious of what I put underneath my make up.

Review: 24K Gold Snail Mask (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

I had this sheet mask waiting in my ‘to review’ pile and it had been in there for so long that I had almost forgotten about it. It seems like life gets so busy lately that sometimes we just need to take a step back and relax – which basically means we should all be masking. I’ve gotten some people interested in sheet masks (and kbeauty, which I never shut up about) and so two nights ago, my work colleagues ended up in a group chat sheet mask session. While everyone was making use of the masks that I’d shared around (you can see the pile on my Instagram), I took the opportunity to pick this one up!

This is a 24K Gold Snail Mask that I was sent a while ago from Elizavecca and, from what I can see on their website, is meant to be used as a daily mask pack to hydrate and refresh a tired complexion (which is great, since I am always tired), as well as having anti-wrinkle benefits.

The packaging and concept didn’t excite me much as it seemed to be a fairly standard product, but the ingredients were decent:

  • Snail slime filtered water 1000pm
  • 24K gold
  • Witch Hazel extract
  • Grapefruit extract

I’m keeping this short and brief, so just read on for the verdict!

Review: Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack (Innisfree)

Innisfree Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack Review BB Cosmetic Kbeauty

It’s time for some skincare talk! I mostly review make up and cosmetics on my blog (because I have a really short attention span and like to play with colours every day) but I do like to make some room for a bit of skincare – especially because that’s what kbeauty is best known for.

Lately, I have noticed that I developed a few sunspots on my face (even with my regular sunscreen and SPF application) – this can either be genetic, which is highly likely, or because of the super harsh sun here in Australia. For that reason, I’ve been on the look out for whitening products to work on lightening pigmentation on my skin. I have used Vitamin C serums before and seen it work on my mother, but it was at the expense of really thinning out her skin, so I decided to try something else.

Instead, BB Cosmetic sent me a sleeping pack from Innisfree – the Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack. According to the description, this product helps to improve skin tone, dark spots and work towards a ‘transparent’ skin texture. So, I tested this out at night for a pretty long time before going to write this and – while it did improve my skin in some ways – it also didn’t target my dark spots as I wanted it to do.

Remember to check out BB Cosmetic to get your hands on these (or any other products from Innisfree). they have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Lip Sleeping Mask (Laneige)

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask BB Cosmetic Kbeauty

Honestly, I first saw this Lip Sleeping Mask online and then in store when I was in Korea and I did want to try it (because it smells amazing) but it’s taken me so long to do this just because I wasn’t convinced that this would be an interesting product. In my eyes, I figured that it just looked like glorified Vaseline, and I’m not even a fan of Vaseline (which is basically petroleum oil jellied) except for in desperately dry times. However, when I was going through BB Cosmetic‘s website, I figured that I might as well give it a shot!

At the moment, they carry four different versions: Berry (the original one), Grapefruit, Apple and Vanilla (which are from the holiday release). I was pretty keen to try all of them, to be honest, but considering that BB Cosmetic were going to generously send me them for review, I chose the original Berry one – and will probably purchase the others at a later date just for the different scents.

Review: Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydrogel Melting Mask (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

I’ve been trying to get more active on my blog again but it’s proving more difficult than it should be because of work. I have also been having some trouble with my health that I haven’t been talking about much, but I am taking care of myself and trying to get back to my full spirits. Hopefully, things get a little bit easier but – in the mean time – you can keep following me on Instagram and also check out my Youtube Channel! For now though, let’s jump right into a review. As with most of my sheet mask reviews, I’m going to keep it fairly short and sweet.

This is the Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydrogel Melting Mask that I recieved from Elizavecca to review. They had actually sent me a package of things to test but it’s been taking me a while to get through them. However, everything I have tested so far has been great and I actually really enjoyed this mask! This is (as you can tell) a hydrogel mask, meaning that it doesn’t use a cotton sheet but rather a gel material that is cooling, clings well to the skin and actually helps to hydrate better. These masks are usually considered a premium product and cost more than your normal sheets, but I love them a lot and I tend to save them for special days.

The packaging has a super cute pig illustration and, as usual, I had to take the time out the admire it. The milkypiggy has on a clear hydrogel mask too and I love the colours. It has a quirky look to it that would make it a fun gift – or just to collect yourself. Overall, the packaging design is quite normal, but it’s cute!

On the Elizavecca website, you can buy this as a pack of five for 38,000 won or – if you are after an english website – they also sell on many other online stores and platforms too.

Review: Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash Off (Skinfood)

Skinfood Black Sugar Honey Mask Washoff Q-Depot

Well, hello everyone! It’s getting close to the beginning of my Japan Trip (and, amazingly I still haven’t blogged by Korea trip… but I will soon, I promise) and that means that my posts are going to be quite slow for a few weeks. I’ll be very active on Instagram though, so you can follow me there. In the meantime, I’m going to use the next few days to get up to date on some of these reviews, the first of which is going to be the Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash Off from Skinfood. This is really similar to the Black Sugar Mask that I usually use, which is a physical exfoliator and actually quite popular amongst a lot of us bloggers. That mask is quite harsh and, in order to soften it, a lot of people also add water to the formula. Personally, I quite like having a tough scrub now and then but, for those with more sensitive skin (or a more sensible approach to skincare), this honey alternative may be just for you.

This was sent to me for review from Q-Depot, an online Korean cosmetics store that stocks a good range of road shop and higher end brands (such as Sulwhasoo, O Hui, History of Whoo). Remember to check them out on the way (and get to the end of this post for 10% off your first order)! Let’s start!

Review: Power Ringer Mask Pack (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Sheet Mask Power Ringer Review

These masks are definitely going to take me a while to get through (because I seldom have the time for daily masking) so I thought that I would post up this review first with the overall comments before gradually adding in notes for each individual mask. Great idea, right?

Anyway, the first thing I want to say is Happy New Year! This one is going to be my first review of the year and I’m pretty happy that it’s for an Elizavecca product – their brand made quite a splash in 2016 and I’m hoping that they become even more popular in the year to come. It’s great watching some of these more off-beat or independent brands thrive in an industry as saturated as kbeauty.

For these masks, I received them from BB Cosmetic when I was in Korea last year (that is strange to say) and they are meant to be used as daily masks, I believe – though I will be spreading them out. They all use different ingredients to target different things, though the description is a little difficult to understand. Selling in a pack of ten, you’re meant to be able to pick and choose which mask(s) to using during the week to customise your skincare.
