Foodaholic Gold Energy Hydrogel Mask Review

Hello again Sanseoulites! While it has been awhile I promise I have missed each and every one of you a great deal. After taking a brief hiatus I am ready to get back to work and share my insights. After discovering a new site to order k-beauty products from I knew I had to try them out. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

The Website : Skin 18

They are currently running a promotion for FREE MASKS!!! All you have to do is pay shipping. Just make sure to follow the rules on their page. You can only get 1 of each type of mask. Check them out here.

I ordered an assortment of 15 masks for only $10! I had sticker shock when I went to check out. LOL The package arrived within two weeks which is pretty standard. It came from Hong Kong & had a low value which I know my international friends appreciate.

All the goods from Skin18.

After I received these it took me awhile to decide which one I wanted to try first. The lucky winner was the Gold Energy Hydrogel Mask because duh GOLD!! Part of me was curious to try this just because of the brand name Foodaholic.

My Experience:

gold hydrogel mask

Doesn’t that look pretty? I took the mask out of the package & was amazed by how bright the gold looked. When I removed the paper backing I realized that this mask came in two pieces. The only other time I had ever used hydrogel was with eye patches so I figured it would be a similar experience as far as texture & moisture were concerned. Placing two slick mask pieces proved to be more of a challenge than I was expecting.

Gold mask

The gold looked very translucent once applied & as you can see I had some gaps around my eyes, but at least it stayed in place. I took this off after 40 minutes & even then it still felt extremely moist. I think this is a mask I could have slept in. It did have a slight sticky feeling, but once I let the remaining essence soak in I noticed that it went away.

My overall thoughts:

I was very pleased with this site & the mask. I noticed immediate results. My skin can sometimes dwell on the oily & dehydrated side so to see my face looking plump & radiant…well all I can say is OMG! I was doing a little happy dance on the inside. In the future I plan on reordering from Skin18. Just remember that even though they are offering these freebies; let’s show them some love & buy a few other items as well.

If anyone has tried any other hydrogel mask that you loved then let me know in the comments below. I’m always looking for new beauty products to try out.

Until next time my dears,

The Etude House Waiting Game

Hello my fellow SanSeoulites! Back in November I placed my very first order with Etude House. They offered 50% off their popular sheet masks along with free shipping for orders under 1.6kg. Being the great deal that it was I purchased a stack of sheet masks for 48 cents a piece along with a two part sheet mask, two black charcoal chin strips, & a lip gel patch.

Etude House Haul

 

As a somewhat new Korean beauty addict I waited patiently (okay, I may have stalked my postman) for my order to arrive. During this time I emailed Etude House numerous times to request my tracking number. When I finally received a reply the woman was a bit snarky & claimed it had been sent before, but she still gave me it to me again. At this point I didn’t care, because I had my magic numbers. I cannot stress this enough, if you plan to order through their website then CREATE AN ACCOUNT  first. This will allow you to track your order along with being able to earn points for future use. Currently 3 points is equal to $1. After a month passed I was very worried about my package. The company did email me to let me know that it was stuck in Los Angeles & offered me a 20% coupon code to help make up for it. When I finally received my order nearly two months had passed. I was a bit apprehensive when it arrived. In my head I imagined a squished leaky box, but everything arrived in perfect condition! .

Feel free to check out my photos below. I am currently trying these out & my favorite has been lemon of all things!

Leave me a comment & let me know. What’s your favorite kind of sheet mask?
