The Face Shop - Facial Mask

I got this set of 5 masks during Christmas in 2010. The set comprise Power Treatment Gel Mask focusing on skin concerns :

(a) Whitening - hydrogel infused with a potent skin whitening blend of Arbutin and extracts of Mulberry plant brightens and revitalizes the skin.
(b) Detox & antioxidation - hydrogel infused with powerful anti-oxidants including ginseng and jujube neutralizes free radicals and helps premature aging while reinforcing skin's moisture.
(c) Firming & wrinkle-care - hydrogel infused with a skin rejuvenating blend of pomegranate, fig, ginko and hydrolyzed collagen lifts, plumps slackened skin and leaves skin growing with deep moisture.
(d) Soothing & Repair - hydrogel infused with skin soothing honey suckle flower and other plant extracts instantly relaxes tired skin and calms your senses.

(e) Clarifying & pore care - hydrogel infused with AHA and vitamin-rich fruit extracts clarifies skin and provides gentle exfoliation to help reduce excess oil and pore clogging debris.
I'm trying the clarifying & pore care today.
It is gel-mask comes with 2 parts (one for upper face and lower face) to fit any face size. This gel mask really 'stick' onto your face well and basically you can walk around without worrying it to slip off.. I found that essense can absorb well onto your skin with gel mask. It has cooling effect and non-stickiness feel. I left it on for about 25 minutes and felt my skin is moisture with growy look. I'll try out Mask (a) to (d) next week ^_^

Coast to Coast

Coast to Coast skincare is Australian owned and made. Their products are made from a complex balance of organic and native ingredients, sophisticated herbal extracts, potent essential oils and active plant concentrates. I bought Coastal Fruit Fibre Treatment Mask @SGD 56 (with free box of Outback Fruit Fibre Eye Mask cost at SGD 48) and coastal rejuvenating face polisher at SGD 43.

I have tried the eye mask today. I can't see instant brightening effect on my dark circles but the mask did moisturise my eyes area well and absorbed quickly.. I like mask which can absorb well, no 'burning' effect and importantly - non- stickiness feel. It doesn't have smell (free of artificial fragrances) as well.
My thought is the price is pricey given that each mask costs about SGD 13 as compared to other brands such as My Beauty Diary which cost about SGD 1.59 per piece. I guess it is the ingredients that count as it is made from organic, non-artificial fragrances and colours, free of common synthetic ingredients and harsh mineral oils..
In short, it is eco skincare.. I will try the face mask tomorrow and blog with more photos :)
