Hello Beauties, how are you all doing? I am fine though freeze from time to time due to the chilly winter here in SA. I got home last week and decided to take in the mail when I saw a fancy envelope with my name on it. I was so excited that I ripped it open to reveal a Beauty Friends II Essence Mask Sheet Pack (Green Tea). It was sent to me by Skin18 because I signed up for their blogger review program a month ago. I came across the program on Instagram and decided to go for it with fingers crossed since most beauty companies overseas tend to keep such programs for bloggers within a specific geographical area.
*I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience, Read more here*

How I used it
Firstly, I washed my face with DIY African Black Soap liquid and dried my face with a towel. Then I place the chilled Beauty Friends II Essence Mask Sheet Pack on my face. I left it on for 30 minutes to ensure that my skin absorb all the juicy green tea essence. Finally, I applied my Cetaphil moisturizing cream.
- The mask is free of alcohol and parabens.
- Rich in natural extracts
- Moisturizes, rejuvenate and hydrate the skin well in a super relaxing way especially if the mask is chilled before use.
- Caused no breakouts or itchiness to my skin
- The mask packet is light and travel friendly
- It is currently only available online in SA via the Skin18 website
- 3 to 4 masks recommended per week to see the benefits on the skin
This was my first time to use a face mask sheet and I was pleasantly surprised by how my face felt soft and moisturized afterwards. My skin is sensitive and dry so I seldom try new products but it was a win when I realized that the mask is free from parabens and alcohol. The scent of the mask first seems so overpowering but it lessens gradually. I think I have just being initiated into Korean skin care products because now I am hooked.
