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,

Fashion Trends For Summer 2015

With Coachella fresh on our minds I wanted to share a few fashion trends for the summer. For many the heat is already here so even though the calendar claims it is only April our hearts say July. While some trends make us ooh & aah others make us exclaim WTF! Either way this summer is sure to be full of fabulous looks.

2015 fashion trends

  1. Monochromatic Outfits

From white on white to denim on denim a single cohesive look has gained popularity. This is a chic and effortless look that has the versatility to be dressed up or minimalistic depending on accessary usage.

The 2015 Pantone color of the year may be Marsala, but all I see is GOLD. From clothing and accessories to home décor – gold is everywhere. Want a luxurious boost? Grab some gold. I have even seen gold staplers from Target so obviously everyone needs some gold in their lives.

  1. Tribal Prints

This has been going on for a few years so it’s not exactly new, but it is always fun. A popular look has been solid tops paired with tribal print bottoms. Can’t go on vacation this summer? That’s fine, but it doesn’t mean your clothing can’t be inspired by faraway lands.

  1. Kimonos

While this invokes images of the beautiful kimonos from Japan I am talking about an updated and perhaps even westernized versions. Kimonos can vary in length, but are typically worn over shorts or dresses. I think that the kimono is the new cardigan. It’s fresh, fun, and gives a youthful and slightly hippie type of vibe.



  1. Pattern Mixing

Want a look that says “I woke up like this” or “F$#k it”? Well then this look is for you. *Please take note of my sarcasm dear SanSeoulites* 🙂 I think the best part about this look is that there are no rules. Whether you are a fashionista or fashionably challenged absolutely everyone can achieve this look. Pattern on pattern? Great.



What are some of looks you’re hoping to see this summer?

Until next time. XOXO
