[REVIEW] Get milked with Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask

The Milk Peel Cream Mask
I know what you're thinking cause I had the same thought! Have you ever thought of milk as your face mask? Althea has taken masking to a whole new level by launching the Milk Peel Cream Mask. If you check out the site, it claims that this mask would hydrate your skin almost effortlessly. It contains AHA and BHA extracts making it gentle enough for the skin while exfoliating effectively from clay to whipped cream lather. I was immediately SOLD when I found out that the Milk Peel Cream Mask would foam up when in contact with skin. Skincare is so high tech now man! Enough chit chat lets get into details of my review on the Milk Peel Cream Mask.

Minimalist packaging
So when I got this from a box, I realized that it came in a very cute minimalist packaging which clearly states what you need to know about the product. The highlight of it to me was that it's a soft peeling mask which I don't commonly see in stores promoting. It comes in a pump bottle which looks super cute on your toilet shelf, and it comes with a cover so that you can keep your content clean and hygienic. Each bottle contains 50ml, which I believe would be good enough to last you roughly a month or two depending on how frequent your usage is.

Milk Peel Cream Mask

Comes in a pump bottle
Has a creamy texture when applied
After 20 seconds, bubbles start to foam
The texture is pretty interesting I would have to say. When pumping out the content, it has like this clay-like texture, but after about 10-15 seconds, the clay texture would turn into bubbly foams when in contact with skin. This is by far the coolest mask I've ever tried, and it honestly gets me really excited each time I need to get myself a masking session. Once it foams up, it's very easy to wash it off with water which gives it an extra bonus point since normal clay mask can be a little tedious to remove.

How to use

Just apply it on skin and leave it on for 30-60 seconds
To use this is super simple. First dampen your skin evenly and apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging the mask all over your face till rich lather forms. Leave it on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water, and you're done! Giving your skin a deeper cleansing experience has never been easier. I love how my skin feels moisturized after cleansing, and I do also not
ice that my pores were less obvious after washing off the residue of the mask.

The experience 

It will then foam up with bubbles
Give your face a good massage (as if cleansing your face)
Then wash it off and pat face dry
I have combination oily skin, so scrubs with beads are a big no-no cause I would eventually breakout like mad! I tried this and I find this very gentle on the skin. After cleansing of the cream, you'd be surprised that your skin is as soft as a baby's bottom. No kidding! I personally use this twice a week, and I realized that my skin looked so much healthier and cleaner. Some mask can be too strong for my skin, but the Milk Peel Cream Mask, on the other hand, cleanses while moisturizing and revitalizing the skin effortlessly.

VERDICT

First time experiencing a different masking sensation, and i LOVE it!


My overall thoughts on the Althea Milk Peel Cream is that it's really impressive on what they have come up. At only RM36 per bottle, I would say that the price is really affordable considering that it helped my skin maintain its hydration level. If you don't like harsh particles in your skincare, this would be your alternative to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells. If your main concern would be blocked pores, well, this is what you need to complete your skin regime as it detoxifies and pulls out impurities from the pores.

[REVIEW] DR GLAMOGENIC | Dynamic Brightening Mask

Introducing the Dr. Glamogenic Dynamic Brightening Mask
I believe that all of the beauty enthusiasts out there has a go-to mask when your skin needs a little more extra lovin. And today, I someone got hold of the Dr. Glamogenic Dynamic Brightening Mask to give a go, and since I have some spare time to share with you on my masking experience, here's my review on the Dr. Galmogenic Dynamic Brightening Mask. But before I get into details let me share with you some deets on Dr. Glamogenic. The brand originally marketed in Australia and has a vision of offering skin care products that give results. Since its now available in Malaysia, I can't wait to give this a go, so let's skip to the review

Dr. Glamogenic | Dynamic Brightening Mask

There are 5 pieces of individually wrapped sheets in each box
The Dynamic Brightening Mask claims to contain hydrating ingredients which would plump the skin while improving skin radiance appearance. It also claims to contain moisture that will keep your skin moisture level well balanced to give your skin a younger look.  Each box of the Dr. Glamogenic Dynamic Brightening Mask contains 5 individual sheets soaked in 22g of brightening essence. The reason behind dull skin is usually due to building up of dead skin cells on our skin surface, which clogs the pores and prevent them from breathing. So be sure to cleanse well and mask ocassionally to ensure that your skin looks well taken care of.

Review

Here's my little review on the Dynamic Brightening Mask by Dr. Glamogenic
The sheet is super moisturized in creamy essence
The sheet has a very strong non-stretchy texture
Since this is my first time trying this mask on, I love how they include special features on the mask on each pack. Going into more details of the product, it had a really creamy texture which is also very moisturizing at the same time. I unfolded the mask and placed it on my face and realized that its a perfect fit for Asian sized faces. Sometimes mask can be pretty annoying when it's too large, but there's something about the texture of the mask that makes the mask pretty sturdy and doesn't stretch out when applied to the face.

Fits nicely on Asian sized faces
Leave on for 15-20 minutes
According to the directions on usage, it would be recommended to use this after cleansing and application of toner, then followed by a piece of the mask on the face avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave the mask on for about 15 to 20 minutes then spread the remaining essence all over the face while dabbing the skin lightly until the essence is fully absorbed. To enhance the experience, you may also leave the mask in the fridge for a more cooling experience to close up pores after cleansing.

Benefits

After 20 minutes, the skin looks instantly brighter
In case you're wondering the benefits of this mask other than just brightening, it also contains exfoliating ingredients to unveil softer skin. It is also totally safe as its made with natural ingredients and essential oils, thus brightening the skin internally while restoring your natural radiance. After removing the mask, I did notice that my skin was more bouncy and moisturized too!

Verdict

Not only that it's brighter, but it's also moisturizing and calming too!
As a verdict, despite being my first time hearing about the brand coming into Malaysia, im pretty impressed that it beats your average drugstore mask. Im not sure if its cause it contains natural ingredients, or cause the essence is creamy, but it works for my skin, so I have nothing bad to say about the mask I tried. Usually, im not a fan of brightening mask cause the common ones can be a little too drying for my skin, but this had like a 3-in-1 benefit for me as it brightens, exfoliates and moisturizes my skin. What more can you really ask for from a mask? Im pretty happy that it does justice, and I hope it would be more available in our local pharmacies or drugstore.

Comfortable texture and does not agitate the skin. 
Before and After results where skin looks more enhanced and moisturised
Since they are very new, these are only available at their office in the Pavillion Tower where you may get yourself the product from their office, or get yourself a meeting with their experts for more advice on what products that would suit your skin. I can actually see potential in the brand, and trust me I am saying this as a non-bias writer. Its made in Korea, Licensed in Australia and now available in Malaysia! Feel free to leave me a comment if you may have any other inquiries.
