The Best Korean Sheet Masks Ever

You wanna know who’s annoying?

Well, my sister who lives in Hong Kong came to visit me this past December but prior to her visit, she went to Seoul for a weekend trip and she asked me if I wanted anything from there – makeup? skincare? food?

I said – NO!

WTF is wrong with me??!!

Yes, I am annoying!  I am annoyed with annoying old ME!!!

You see, my sister had actually bought me a few Korean beauty products – sheet masks, lipsticks, skincare, food – from a previous trip to Korea. My IG pic is dated April 2015 but she actually gave them to me when she visited in December 2014!!!  I had stashed this haul away in a ‘safe place’ and promptly, forgotten about it.  So I felt too guilty to ask for more stuff when I hadn’t found used any of the products she had bought me previously.

Anyway, so get this…

We spent our New Year’s Eve being party animals.  By party animals, I mean, we spent the last few hours of 2017 clearing out our “Study”.

I’m using the term “Study” lightly because it was basically our junk room.

Friends are popping over in an hour.  No problem.  Chuck every fugly thing in the “Study”.

Overseas visitors will be staying with us for a couple of weeks.  No problemo.  Just hide all the crap in the “Study”.

No studying was ever done in the “Study”.

So, anyway, back to NYE, the kids are in bed and my husband and I are sweating like big baby beasts because we are busy chucking out all the crap that is in that “Study”.

And guess what I find?

Yes, a box full of goodies including all the lovely Korean makeup and skincare products my sister had got me.

“Let’s get it on!”
“Uh…what?  Right now?”
“Huh?  No, you wish mate!  I’m not talking to you!  I’m talking about this sheet mask!”

And that, my friends, is how I first tried Etude House sheet masks.

And boy, are they the best or are they the BEST?!!!!

I woke up the next morning, i.e. New Year’s Day, and I had glowy, bouncy and 25-year-old skin!

I have used plenty of sheet masks in my time but I have not had such great results as I have had with these Etude House sheet masks.


So yeah, I am ULTRA annoyed at me for not using these YEARS ago when my sister first got them for me.  And why did I say “No” when my sister offered to buy me amazing Korean beauty products at amazing Korean prices?  SIGHS!!!  Major regrets!!!

You simply must go and buy some Etude House sheet masks today!

That said, I have yet to try the Tony Moly sheet masks she got me because I have been so happy with the results of the Etude House ones….hmmm….I will update you when I decide to use the Tony Moly ones hehe.

Disclaimer :  As mentioned, my sis bought me these sheet masks so hashtag GIFTED and also, I have used affiliate links which means that if you buy anything from my links, I will get a small, like veryyyy small, commission at no extra cost to you and for that, I thank you!

3 things…

Firstly, I have totally neglected this blog but if you’re still hanging around, thank you so much!

Secondly, I won’t bore you with my excuses for being MIA in beauty blogging but just in case you’re wondering (yes, Mum, I’m talking about YOU!), no I am not pregnant again.

And thirdly, I received a lovely Antipodes skincare package at the start of LAST year.  Took photos of it.  Tried all the products.  But forgot to blog about it…

Antipodes skincare review

If you haven’t heard of Antipodes before, you clearly don’t browse the skincare aisles like I do in Priceline!  The skincare brand hails from New Zealand and I’m so glad I was introduced to their products.

I’ve been a big fan of sleeping masks waaaay before they were the “in” thing.  In fact, one of my first few blog posts { with terrrrible photos and terrrible writing – thankfully I’ve improved since then! } was reviewing that Korean sleeping mask which started it all.

Garnier recently launched their version called the Miracle Sleeping Cream which you can use like a night cream.  I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it’s a winner.  Here are 5 awesome things that you { & I already do! } will love about it :-


Skincare Review : L’Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub

L'Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub.

One of the things I missed the most when I had a newborn bubba was a LONG HOT SHOWER.  Emphasis on the “long”.  Because it just was not possible.  I’m sure all mothers reading this will be nodding their heads in agreement.

It’s only been recently that I’ve had a bit more time to enjoy my showers.  And thankfully, I’ve been enjoying it even more with the help of  L’Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub.
