Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask- Tea Tree Review + GIVEAWAY Announcement

Hello everybody, today I’m going to review the Innisfree It’s Real Tea Tree Mask Sheet. So I have talked about how I tend to break out while PMSing and I am overjoyed to tell you guys that I have finally figured a way out. The way out is actually making some changes in my skincare routine during that time of the month which I’m going to share with you guys soon.

So a little heads up, including a healing sheet mask AKA Tea Tree Sheet Mask is one of those changes. Tea Tree oil has been widely known to treat acnes and I have earlier been too impressed with Tonymoly Im Real Tea Tree Face Mask. So just when I noticed that I’m breaking out a little around my lip area and one in the forehead I checked if it’s that time already. These little predictions of mine are too accurate that even though they get a little annoying sometimes, I have learnt how to use these predictions to treat my PMS breakout. So I noticed these tiny pimples during my night time regimen and I knew that it will only grow in the following days like always. Without making any delay I exfoliated my skin, since it will make the serum in the mask easier to absorb. I threw the mask on my face after toning and lay on my bed for about 30 minutes.

The essence was almost transparent and even though there was enough essence on the cotton mask, it wasn’t drippy. The fitting of the mask was not as good as the other masks from the range. It wrinkled up around my nose area making my sheet mask selfie too horrible to upload. Usually my sheet masks dry within 30- 35 minutes but it didn’t. However, I removed it in 30 minutes and noticed a visibly clear skin. The tiny pimples were shrunked and by the next morning they disappeared. Now since I applied it just when my skin started suffering from the oil breakout I can’t really tell how it will work on mature cystic acnes. But the result I noticed was impressive enough. I finished it off with a sleeping pack and unlike any other sheet mask it didn’t make my skin too hydrated the following days. I have heard that tea tree oil makes skin a bit dry and I can’t really tell if that’s true. But my skin was neither dried, nor too moisturized. Also my skin tone didn’t get brightened the way it usually does following sheet masking. I guess I should just be happy with the clear skin.

So will I be purchasing it again? I might as well be using one each month.

Will I recommend it?

Going Eco Friendly With Grass Spider + GIVEAWAY

So I got introduced with this brand called Grass Spider who’s been dealing with eco-friendly fashion, eco-friendly home decor and most recently organic skincare. It’s like your go to website to find all things natural, organic and eco-friendly.

A few months ago they sent me this eco friendly necklace and a jute sling bag and the later one pretty much changed the concept of the average Jute bags. It’s convenient, it’s unisex and you can literally slip a laptop and a few books into it. It’s really, really convenient for college students, and considering the fact that my college days are long over, it works as my overnighter more than often.

September Beautifully You Box- Anniversary Special Giveaway

Hey guys, hope you are all doing fine. I am really sorry that I missed the monthly giveaway last month. If you have been following my posts, you will know that my grandma expired on the month of July, and the memorial was 40 days later.

In fact, I even missed celebrating my blog’s 1st Anniversary on August, let alone organizing a special giveaway, and I also spent a silent birthday this 16th. So I guess it’s high time I resume my monthly giveaway.

Here’s everything I managed to get together.

  • Lass Natural Sunscreen- Full Sized
  • Ma Earth Botanical Balancing Cream- Sample Size

Announcing My Monthly Giveaway Box- Beautifully You

11949409_987784237952879_6357814957951577888_n

Midnight’s certainly not the best time to make an announcement but am sure I’ve got some readers who are insomniac just like me. So there you go, I’m announcing my beauty box, which might be launched this month if everything goes as planned.

Because my blog is about what makes me (feel) beautiful, I thought why not launch something that can make my readers feel and look beautiful? And that’s how I stumbled across the name ‘Beautifully You’. I’m literally obsessed with the name, just like I have been obsessed with the name ‘Beautifully Me’. While I was launching my blog, the dot com domain with that name was gone and everybody told me to choose another name, I banged my head for months and so did my friends. Finally we all decided on another name, purchased a domain, launched an ugly site (designed by a paid designer, I know, disgusts me to even remember) and after a few months when I realised I couldn’t just let this name go, I purchased a dot in domain and started afresh. That’s how much attached I am with my blog name and it pleases me to say that I am equally attached to the name of my beauty box. Lucky me, this time I don’t need to bother if the name’s already taken.

So here’s my concept, I’ll curate a beauty box each month, and will create each posts mentioning the contents of that month’s box. One of my subscribers will be chosen lucky by the end of the month, and once I get his/her postal address, I’ll ship the box to that address. That’s it, that’s all you have to do, remain my subscriber. There’s no need to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get noticed, and taken to the fact that I’ll come back with a box every month, there’s no need to unsubscribe if you don’t get selected. 😀

The products will be chosen and purchased by me, but if there’s any sponsored product in the box, chances are, you will have to follow their pages as well. And unfollowers, I’ll keep an eye on you.

I haven’t yet decided whether to make it an international giveaway or keep it open only for Indian residents. It will certainly be a good opportunity  for my international readers to find out some of our amazing Indian products (I’m certain there will be a lot of all organic Indian products), but then again I’ll need to educate myself on the shipping charges and evaluate if I’ve got any international reader at all… 😀

Because I am a Korean Skincare obsessed blogger and I constantly brag about my Korean cosmetics filled dresser, you guys can expect at least one K-Beauty product in each box. There’s only one drawback from my side, I am not yet done with the box or bag or whatever I’ll stuff the products in, and I’m aware that I’m a bit early to announce this without even finishing my work, but I promise, the box will be live as soon as I’m done with the box.

P.S: This is the most exciting post I’ve ever published, so I’ll be eager to hear all of your thoughts…

P.P.S: Things can get even more exciting on my blog’s birthday. Spoiler: That’s on August…
