My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Mask Review

Purchased from SaSa (10 masks per box)

My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Mask tightens pores, refines and hydrates skin. It is ideal for all skin types, especially skin with visible pores.

Nano mild Hibiscus acid tightens pores: It is a mild Alpha Hydroxy Acid which removes cuticles to prevent and correct large pores. Oil Balancing mask helps tighten pores and improve skin texture, leaving skin fine and radiant. 

Hydrate skin and restore elasticity: Nanospheres and hyaluronic acid extracted by biological technology boost formation of collagen to restore skin’s elasticity.

Amazing Nanospheres Technology: Structured with plenty of tiny holes, it enhances absorption of nourishment, leaving skin moisturized.

Cleanse and tones face thoroughly before applying mask. Put the mask on and leave it for 20 - 30 minutes, then peel off. Gently massage the excess essence on the face and neck to assist absorption. No rinsing is necessary. Follow with your daily moisturizer. Use 2 - 3 times weekly for maximum effect.

★ Scent? Light apple scent

Skin Type? All skin types

Feel on skin? Refreshing

★ RepurchaseYes

I love this mask!!! It does everything that it claims. My pores were noticeably smaller, and my skin was hydrated & radiant. I didn't need to moisturize after applying this mask. I need to stock up on more of these!! I would seriously cry if they stopped making them :) I think that the Apple Polyphenol Mask would be nice for you to start off with if you've never used My Beauty Diary masks before.

New Purchases

Hello everyone! I hope that you all are doing well. My iron levels have been really low since Friday, so I haven't been feeling well. This will not stop me from shopping :)  

* Bath & Body Works: Pink Chiffon Body Mist & Body Cream
* Jewelry from Body Central
* Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer with SPF 30 (Walmart)
* Neutrogena  Anti-Oxidant Booster Serum (eBay)
* Simple Skin Care Toner (Target)

I love this scent!!

I've tried all of these & I haven't had an allergic reaction to any of far. The Cetaphil Lotion came with a $2 off your next purchase coupon, so I'm planning on buying their Oil Control Foam Cleanser.

All of the jewelry from Body Central was marked down to $3.80 

 Derma Roller (eBay)

My BigBang Alive CD came last Friday.

There's probably going to be a BIGBANG Alive Deluxe 2012 Limited Edition 24K Gold CD lol!! There's always something better than the first thing that comes out :) I really like this CD. My favorite song is Bad Boy!

DIY: White Fungus Facial Serum

I saw this DIY facial serum on YouTube (video here) from Queenie Chan.  This serum is supposed to be an all natural anti-aging serum. You should be able to purchase the white fungus at an Asian grocery store. Because there are no preservatives in this serum, you must use it with in a week. This serum must be stored in your refrigerator. 

What you will need:

White fungus 1 piece or more (depends on how much you want to make).
Bottle (preferably one with a dropper)
Strainer basket

White Fungus (a.k.a snow fungus,silver fungus )

 Step 1: Soak the fungus in a bowl of warm water with the yellow base facing up for 10 minutes. Squeeze the fungus a few times to help get rid of the impurities and change out the water if needed.

Step 2: Trim the "petals" of  the fungus off and keep middle part for future use.

Yellow middle base part

The middle part can be used as a facial and body scrub. It's very soft! You can reuse it for up to a week. Keep it in your refrigerator. 

Step 3: Put the white fungus in a pot of boiling water and let it simmer on low heat for for 60-90 minutes.

When it's done, the water should now be in a gooey gel like form. This is the serum.

Step 4 :  Use a strainer to take out the chunks of white fungus and transfer the liquid to a bowl and let it cool.  

Step 5: Fill your bottle up with the serum. Store it in your refrigerator. 

You can eat the white fungus or you can use the rest of your liquid serum on pre-cut paper facial masks. I tried eating some of it and did not like it. It's a texture thing :) 

Fangirl Moment :) BigBang is back!!!! It's nice to see all 5 of them together again. I pre-orderd the BigBang version of their CD on Feb 17th.  YG made 6 versions of their CD, which made it hard for fans to choose which one they wanted. I think some fans bought all 6! YG is a smart man lol! I kept on going back and forth on whether or not I wanted BigBang's version or Taeyang's version for like a day. I didn't get the CD with the poster because I don't like having posters in my room. I don't like the people on the posters staring at me while I'm changing lol!! I'm weird like that^^ NEWho, here are their new music videos. Registered & Protected
