My Beauty Diary Sake Yeast Mask

My skin has the winter blues! It's been very dull and lacking a certain glow. However, I shouldn't fully blame winter for my dull skin. It's probably due to my late nights and lack of exercise. I decided to use the Sake Yeast Mask to give my skin a little bit more radiance. 

Here is what claims:
"My Beauty Diary Sake Yeast Mask is enriched with Sake Yeast Extract, which works to boost metabolism and skin renewal by increasing temperature of skin surface. Collagen, the principal element for cuticle renewal, is added to provide skin with necessary nutrients.
Cactus extract containing Flavonoids, Polysaccharides and amino acid helps hydrating skin, while Grapefruit Extract controls sebum secretion, and Algae Extract helps improving metabolism.

For all skin types. For sensitive skin, please undergo dermatological test before use.

How to use it
Place mask on cleansed and toned face. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and then peel off. Gently massage until all remaining beauty lotion is absorbed". 

What do I think? 
This mask smells like alcohol (sake or vodka). The mask out of the package wasn't too juicy, like FaceQ Masks. After removing the mask, my skin felt soft and a bit brighter as the package claims. My acne scars still are visible, but I wasn't expecting miracles. I'm unsure about controlling sebum secretions or improving metabolism, but my skin feels refreshed after.
Rating: 4/5 
I think this mask is good for hydrating and brightening. My skin feels very fresh after.

My Beauty Diary Natto Rejuvenating Mask

As the weather changed, so did my skin. I am starting to get small dry patches around my nose and some parts of my cheek. So, I decided to use the Natto Rejuvenating Mask last night to give my skin a little boost. 

Natto is fermented soy beans. Here is what claims: 
"My Beauty Diary Natto Mask is enriched with Natto extract, which contains Isoflavones to prevent formation of free radicals, reducing the appearance of all signs of aging, such as wrinkles, slacking etc.
It also contains r-PGA which not only forms a moisture film on skin to prevent moisture loss, but also permeates into skin to boost NMF (Natural Moisture Factor). Bio-active Silanols and Algae Extract work to restore radiance and elasticity.

For all skin types, particularly for dull, dry, loose skin.

How to use it

Place mask on cleansed and toned face. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and then peel off. Gently massage until all remaining beauty lotion is absorbed.

Country of origin

Suitable for
all skin type / dry and delicate skin"

What do I think? 
I can't quite define the smell of this mask, but its not strong nor disturbing. It's mild, and I believe most people would not be offended by the smell.  After the mask, my skin felt soft and hydrated, but no brightening nor lifting effects as the package claims. My dry patches around the nose still exist, but my face does not feel as tight as pre-mask. 

Rating: 3/5 
I think this mask is not bad for hydrating. However, I don't believe it does anything else for the skin.

Kimchi Fried Rice

Apparently Korean Kimchi is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It helps eliminate cholesterol and promotes intestinal health.  It has garlic and chili peppers which has loads of vitamin C or helps preserve Vitamin C which will help keep your skin and hair nice and healthy. It has other great benefits such as regulating blood sugars, clearing out our pores, keeps us thin and boosts our energy! So its a good thing I love kimchi!

Heres a quick and easy kimchi fried rice recipe. Hope you like it! 

  • Rice from the night before (because its not as moist) 
  • Kimchi
  • Kimchi juice 
  • 1 egg

How to: 
  • Fry your egg first
  • Microwave your left over rice 
  • Heat your pan to high heat 
  • Add a small amount of oil 
  • Add your rice to your pan 
  • Chop your kimchi into small pieces 
  • Add kimchi into middle of pan 
  • Turn down heat to medium
