Review: The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Character Mask – Ryan (Moisturizing)

Saturday Daily Masking Review: The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Character Mask – Ryan (Moisturizing)

My craze for Kakao Friends has not ended. Ryan is the new character that was introduced to Kakao Friends but is also the most popular in Kakao Friends.

Kakao Friends – Ryan
Ryan the lion (I thought he’s a bear) has smooth skin without a tangled mane, and he provides tips for radiant skin! The radiance and moisturizing character mask provides a natural glow to the skin with essence infused with nourishing honey.

The essence containing nourishing Honey makes the tired skin smooth and healthy.

This skin resting mask’s formula does not contain the 5 additives: Paraben, Talc, Mineral Oil, Polyacrylamide and Paraffin.


Place the mask on the face for 10-15 minutes after washing the face and application of toner. 

Hello Ryan!

Do I look like Ryan?

I think I look weird.


This looks more like Ryan.

While the mask was on my face, it was cool and soothing. I like the mask covering my eyes and lips, making me feel cooling and moisturized all over my face. 

After removal of the mask, I tap the remaining essence into my skin. My skin was still moisturized after some time.

Overall, it’s a mask that I bought cos it was Kakao Friends. It was indeed moisturizing and serves its purpose.

Review: Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack

Daily Masking Wednesday Review: itibiti yogurt mask pack 


If you like Yakult, then you may love this mask. The minute I opened the packaging, the overly sweet “Yakult” or maybe “Vitagen” smell overflowed. 

This is a mask that contains yogurt and lactic acid bacteria fermented extract, which supply moisture and nutrition in tired skin, making the skin moist and smooth. It will help to take care of your skin, making it look more soft and flexible. Using lemon, pomegranate, apple extract and adenosine ingredients will improve wrinkles.


I placed the mask for 15 minutes. Throughout the masking time, I can smell the overly sweet yogurt smell. It was cooling and moisturizing on my face. After removal of the mask, I massaged the serum onto my face and neck. My skin still felt moisturized after that.

This is one of the best seller on its website at http://www.julia.co.kr.

Overall, the mask is moisturizing but the sweet smell of yogurt will still linger around.

Price: US$8 for 10 pieces

Review: Y.E.T Don’t worry Mask Sheet (Heart Beating Mask – Nutrition)

Daily Masking Friday Review: Y.E.T Don’t worry Mask Sheet Heart Beating Mask (Nutrition)


This is such a cute mask that I can’t help buying since I bought it at only US$0.43.

The brand is Y.E.T from Korea.

Image Credit: yetkorea.co.kr


This mask contains Cacao extract and papaya fruit extract. It protects lipid of skin and offers nutrition and moisture to create hydrated and resilient skin. It also exfoliates old skin cells on surface and creates bright and energetic skin.

The mask has 5 cutting lines and stretching ability for better fit.


I placed the mask for 15 minutes. It is cooling and provides instant moisture to my skin. 

Among the other 2 Y.E.T masks that I have tried, this is the best. Read my reviews on:

  1. Y.E.T Don’t Worry Mask Sheet (Mermaid Mask – Moisturizing)
  2. Y.E.T Don’t worry Mask Sheet (Bee My Love Mask – Shimmering)

I placed the mask for 15 minutes. It was cooling and moisturizing. However, I find that the moisturizing effect did not last long after I removed the mask. There was sufficient essence to apply onto my neck. I like the mask as the essence was not too excessive that it would drip off from the mask, yet there was remaing essence for me to massage onto my face and neck.

Overall, I like the moisturizing effect of the mask. Good!

Review: Naisture 24Hr So Smooth Hand Pack & 24Hr So Fresh Foot Pack

I bought this set of Naisture 24hr so smooth hand pack and 24hr so fresh foot pack from Venus Beauty for quite some time and forgot about it. Now I finally get down to try and review on it.

Naisture 24HR So Smooth Hand Pack



The mask contains olive and aloe extracts to produce soft and smooth hands. Collagen keeps the hands tight and young looking.

Naisture 24HR So Fresh Foot Pack



The foot pack mask contains pine needles, mind extracts and green tea extracts that leave the feet completely cool and refreshed.

Finally, I got to try them.

Naisture 24HR So Smooth Hand Pack

Directions of use

  1. Wash and dry hand
  2. Put on the Hand Pack (Step 1)
  3. Wear vinyl gloves (Step 2) over hand pack 
  4. Massage hands to allow essence to absorb into skin
  5. Leave on for 10~15 minutes

Step 2

I left on for 15 minutes.after removal, my hands were smooth. 

Naisture 24HR So Fresh Foot Pack

My face was instantly moisturized. I quite like the Ginseng smell and it really made me think that my skin was being nourished by the Ginseng mask at that moment. Good moisturizing effect!
