Korean Mask Sheet:I'M Plankton Mask Sheet (by Cathy Doll)

The Korean mania is on! People just love everything Korean, from their k dramas, food, glass glowing skin, makeup, and clothes. I have heard there are long lines at the Korean embassy because many Filipinos are getting visas to be able to visit the "land of morning calm". Dae-bak (or super cool or awesome) as Koreans would say!

But for now, I'm binging on k dramas, watching till I drop and getting hook on their skin care products. The problem is, Korean skin care products are really expensive and me being the cheapskate, is rounding up stores looking for cheap but effective Korean skincare items. So in one of my jaunts, I saw this face mask at Watsons and I think it is a great find! I'm excited to share it with you especially my midlife women-sisters. 

My special find is the I'M Plankton Mask Sheet by Cathy Doll. The I'M Plankton Mask Sheet "provides intense nourishment to the skin that is effective in skin regeneration with the use of plankton extract. This mask sheet provides the benefit of wrinkles reduction and skin cells repair to deliver luminous, smooth and radiant skin."

I will now try on this mask sheet and uncover the truth behind it.

Product Name: I'M Plankton Mask Sheet
Net Wt:               25 g.
Price:                 Php 59.00 

How to use:  After facial cleansing, apply the mask sheet on your face and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then, remove the sheet and rinse off with clean water. If there is any sign of irritation, stop using it and seek medical treatment.    
Before use:  The mask sheet is packed individually in a sachet pouch. What's nice about it, is, you can give it as a gift without a need to wrap it. There's a section on the lower left side of the front of the sachet where you can write down the recipient and sender of this cute little item.   

During use:  When I applied the mask sheet on my face, it feels cool and fresh. It is wet with the plankton extract, so I apply the excess extract on my neck and arms. I let it on my face for 30 minutes, and I didn't feel any discomfort such as stinging or itchiness. I was watching a movie while waiting for the time and the mask sheet feels soothing on my face.

After use:  When 30 minutes has lapsed, I removed the mask sheet. I rinse off my face with water per instruction. If you were to ask me, there is no need to rinse off with water because the extract doesn't feel greasy or sticky. There is no visible change as far as I can see it but after removing the mask, my face feels supple and smooth.

Final Verdict:  After using the mask sheet, my face feels supple & smooth. While it is on my face, it feels soothing & relaxing. Plus factor is, you can use the excess extract on your arms and neck. In fact, the used mask sheet won't go to waste either because you can wipe it along your thighs, legs & feet and they don't feel greasy or sticky at all. One use is not enough to see the visible effects, I suggest that you use it 2x a week, to see the effects on your skin.

Recommendation: On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest, I highly recommend it and rate it  5 stars. In one single use, you can feel the positive effects on your skin and second at the price of Php 59.00, this is very cheap because mask sheets are usually priced at Php 100.00 up.

The properties of Plankton extract are: it is deeply moisturizing and soothing. It provides anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, and anti-cellulite properties. It supplies skin & hair with natural minerals and vitamins, especially for sensitive and irritated skin.

With these, it is safe to say that I'M Plankton Mask Sheet is beneficial for us, midlife women. My dearies midlife women, let's take care of our skin and maybe you'd like to try this product too. The young ladies out there can benefit from this product also.

If you had tried this product, care to share with the rest your experience with it. Just leave your comments below.

Middle life is beautiful.

Till next time, God bless.

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skin care products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually these are skin care products that exfoliates the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it  I have to stop using it completely because, it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sun burned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ord…

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!

Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

My Muse

A few days from now, I'll be 52. For a while, I stopped on my track and the thought occurred to me "what next?". It is a loaded question because, in retrospect, it doesn't only imply, what's next to write after the line "I'll be 52" but therein lies broader sentiments which are: what to do next at 52, what is stored for me at 52, have I lived my life the best that I can at 52, am I contented at 52, am I okay at 52, am I happy at 52, am I the ME I want to be at 52.

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about reinventing oneself at midlife. That article shot straight to my heart because I am in the stage of wanting to reinvent myself now I'm in my midlife. Quietly, small thoughts about wanting to do something other than my work creep into my mind. There is this nagging feeling to do something different that would set a different tone in my monotonous life.

I felt incomplete.
I asked myself, "is that bad?", "am I ungrateful for wanting mor…
