Review: Tea tree therapy sheet masks by DearPacker

To be honest, I don't enjoy using sheet masks because they feel wet and cold. But  I will never be without them for one main reason: they lower the temperature of the skin and in this way diminish inflammation.

They are brilliant even for those of us without inflamed acne, because they make the skin look calmer and even toned.

Tea tree therapy sheet masks by DearPacker

I've not tried many sheet masks, and the ones I have tried were such a bad fit for my face, that I felt discouraged to try and find other masks. But not all sheet masks are created equal. The Teatree Therapy mask by DearPacker which I tried recently didn't have a very bad fit. I've had worse.

I can't say that I enjoyed using this mask, because I don't like the wet, cold feeling while it is on my face, but I loved the result of using it. And I also enjoyed its scent- gentle and flowery. I wasn't surprised that it didn't smell of Tea tree. My guess is, as with so many other Korean products, the formula includes Tea tree water, not Tea tree essential oil. Apparently, essential oils have a bad reputation in Korea as many people cannot tolerate them.

After using this mask, my skin was sensationally calmer and pampered. I attribute this not only to the soothing  skin loving ingredients: Tea tree, Panthenol, Vitamin B, Vitamin K3 but also to the fact that it lowers my skin's temperature.

I purchased 5 Tea tree Therapy masks on eBay together with the iUNIK Tea tree relief serum for £14. A pretty good deal, isn't it?  The serum alone is usually about £12.  


Are there any Tea tree sheet masks you would like to recommend? Leave a comment below.


Advice for people with inflamed acne

Sheet masks are usually loaded with some sort of serum or essence. Choose a mask appropriate for your skin type. Once on our skin, this wet mask  remains wet and cold for 15-20 min and lowers the temperature of our skin. This results in reduced inflammation. Not a lot, and not for long, but enough for the skin to appear calmer after the use of a sheet mask. You should try using appropriate sheet masks daily. Putting ice on top of the painful pimples would also help.




Till next time, Milu

Galactomyces & Bifidalacto Complex products+ Several UPDATES

Did I like using Manyo Factory Galactomyces niacin?

No. I will not repurchase Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin again.

UPDATE:31/08/17 It has been 7 months since I wrote this post and in that time I've learnt that Niacin is a very well researched skin loving ingredient. I will be purchasing products containing Niacin :-) and hoping it will "shrink" my pores. 

UPDATE:28/11/2017 As mentioned in my previous update, I wanted to try a Niacin product and I chose Dr.Troub Skin Returning Niaten serum with 10% Niacinamide. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and so far so good. I think my pores look more refined, but it could be my wishful thinking that is tricking my eyes. Sadly, this product is only 30ml and at almost £20, I would not be repurchasing it. I hear that The Ordinary have a nice Niacinamide serum and cheaper.

Observations about applying the product and how it felt on the skin

Applying it (Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin) felt like applying water. No scent, no colour,…

Best calming cream for acne prone skin- Sulwhasoo Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules review

I first heard about the Sulwhasoo range from one of my favourite Youtubers- Lili. Her blog title is I am a beauty junky and that is also the name of her YouTube channel. I don't remember her reviewing the Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules but when I researched several Sulwhasoo products she talked about, I found a couple of reviews on Herblinic and was intrigued enough to order samples from Ebay.  I bought 30 samples and they lasted me 15 days ( using them day and night).

From the very first application, my skin was nourished like never before. I could tell that this was one amazing product.



This honey like cream/serum is apparently packed with medicinal herbs which are said to  help nourish and  repair damaged skin. It smells herby and to me that scent is calming. It looks like honey but it spreads easily and little goes a long way. The application can be a bit sticky, but I don't mind that. One sample is enough for my face and neck.


After I used the first 30 samples, my skin…

Review: Naruko Tea tree shine control & blemish clear night gelly

As I am writing this blog post, I glance at the empty tub of the Naruko Tea tree night gelly ( that is the actual spelling on the tub)  I can't bare to throw it away yet. I absolutely loved using it.

But before I tell you anything else about this product, I must tell you this:  This was the best smelling skin care product I have ever used. I bet you are surprised. After all it is called a Tea tree night gelly and as we know tea tree doesn't smell nice at all. But this product does not smell of tea tree oil. Ok, may be there is just a hint of tea tree, but a nice smelling one. To be precise, the gelly smells like a fresh spring morning: crisp and cool, delicately scented as snowdrops  and with a gentle hint of mint. That's why I can't bare to throw away the empty tub yet, I keep on sniffing it...



The gelly applies smoothly and it feels very cool on the skin.  I didn't like that at first because I prefer skin care products that feel warm or at least not cool. But I go…
