Sophie Monk: Bye Bye Blackhead Remove Easy 1, 2, 3 and Double Lifting Masks

Monday, January 02, 2012

While I love fresh strawberries, I certainly don't fancy having a strawberry nose (loosely translated from 草莓鼻).

Unlike usual nose mask/pack, Sophie Monk Bye Bye Blackhead Remove Easy 1, 2, 3 has got 2 additional steps which is to apply deep sebum softener prior to applying the nose pack and then follow up with pore treatment essence to close up the pores.

Step 1: Deep Sebum Softener
Step 2: Sebum Purifying Mask
Step 3: Pore Treatment Essence

Don't say I didn't warn you, click to enlarge at your own discretion.

My thoughts:

The opening of the sebum purifying mask is rather big so you have to be really careful when opening it because most of the time when I open it, the contents will spill out.

I usually apply a thick layer on my nose area and it takes about 30 - 40 minutes for it to dry completely. It can be rather painful when you try to remove it.

As the nose mask is light in colour, I thought that it only managed to remove at most 3 blackheads at the first glance. It was only when I inspected it carefully then I realised that it removed most of the impurities on my nose. Gosh, I didn't know that my nose was filled with so much disguising stuffs. Even I myself finds it disguising whenever I enlarge the picture above.

Rating: ★★★★☆

Repurchase: Yes

Sophie Monk Double Lifting Masks

Here's my overall take on Sophie Monk Double Lifting Masks.

- Fair bit of excess essence after removing mask from pack
- Essence drips when opening facial mask pack and while applying onto face

Generally, I'm not very fond of facial masks with ear hooks because I always get a headache after having it on for 5 to 10 mins.

Besides, facial masks with ear hooks are usually less moisturizing then those without ear hooks. However, Sophie Monk Double Lifting Masks are one of the more moistuizing one that I have tried. I quite like the fact that I am able to have the facial mask on and am able do other tasks without having to worry that it might drop.

Here are the different kind of Sophie Monk Double Lifting masks.

Basically, those Japanese words on top in ovals means that you should cleanse your face, apply toner, apply facial mask and follow up with moisturizer.

Sophie Monk Moisturizing Double Lifting Mask

Sophie Monk Pore Minimizing Double Lifting Mask

Sophie Monk V Shaping Double Lifting Mask

Sophie Monk Whitening Double Lifting Mask

Sophie Monk Hydrating Double Lifting Mask

Of all, my favourite Sophie Monk Double Lifting Mask would be Sophie Monk Whitening Double Lifting Mask.

I feel that it makes my skin:

- Look brigher
- More even skin tone
- Face looks slightly sharper

It was my mom whom noticed that my face looked slightly sharper the next morning after I used Sophie Monk Whitening Double Lifting Mask.

Whitening: ★★★★☆
Moisturizing: ★★★☆☆
Lifting: This is a tricky one. While I didn't notice any visible difference, my mom said she did.
