Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask Review

I was able to try out the Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask for free through Skin 18 Blogger review program. (Will create a blog post to add more details about the program so keep a look out for that)  I received the Lemon,Bamboo,Green Tea, and Lentil Bean masks from the line to try out.


 Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Masks are available in:
  • Aloe
  • Bamboo
  • Lemon
  • Mango
  • Pearl
  • Green Tea 
  • Lentil Bean
  • Shea Butter
  • Tea Tree 

The masks are made with natural extracts and a compact cell fabric which is very effective at delivering maximum essence to the skin. The cell sheet is 100% cotton that is soft and will not irritate the skin.  The essence used is double fermented. They also contain Phytic Acid which is great for moisturizing.

Directions:
Best use is 2-3 times a week. Use after cleansing and toning the face. Leave mask on for 20 minutes and gently pat in remainder essence onto face and neck.

The masks were very gentle and the cell fabric was soft. They fit pretty well on my face and there was a lot of essence in the mask especially considering how light weight the masks feel! A little more below on each of the masks I received.

Lentil Bean: 
  • Helps control secretion of sebum
  • Moisturizing
  • Contains 210 mg pure lentil bean essence
The lentil bean one was really interesting because I have never seen a lentil mask before. I was surprised because I actually liked it a lot and it really soothed my skin.

Bamboo
  • Hydrates
  • Energizes
  • Protects against Dryness
  • Contains 210 mg pure bamboo essence 
 I love bamboo skin care products. I always have good results with bamboo in my skincare so this mask was a great pick for me.

Lemon
  • Rich in vitamins 
  • Contains 210 mg pure lemon essence
Lemon is great for brighten the skin and complexion and this mask did a great job at that.

Green Tea
  • Hydrates
  • Calming
  • Contains 210 mg pure green tea essence
Green tea is another one of my go to skincare ingredients. This mask is very soothing and you can see better skin after using.

I really liked the Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Masks. They are affordable at under $2 a mask. They work really great and I am going to have to try out some of the other varieties soon since I really liked the ones I received. You can purchase all of the masks on Skin18.com  #Skin18Challenge

Miracle Tree Organic Moringa Energy Infusion Teas

Tea is a huge part of my life. Tea is more than just a beverage to me and many others. I include tea in many of my wellness and relaxation routines. One of the great things about tea is the variety! There is tea for everyone. I was fortunate enough to partner with Miracle Tree to try out the new Organic Moringa Energy Infusion Teas. The  Miracle Tree Moringa Energy Infusion Teas are super-caffeinated to jump start your day.  I am a big believer that the morning sets the tone for your day.This is why it is super important to have a good morning routine and to nourish your body with the right fuel.  The Miracle Tree Moringa Tea has just what I need to start my day off right. I can get my caffeine fix in without the coffee shakes and with added nutrients.  Plus the Miracle Tree tea is an organic source of caffeine. Regular coffee had about 125 mg of caffeine but the Energy Infusion tea has 155 mg of organic caffeine! The extra amount of caffeine really helps when your a mom of five!

Moringa is quickly becoming the hottest Super food trend and you can see why considering it is a nutrient powerhouse. Morgina has been used for a long time due to its amazing health benefits.
Switching my cup of coffee to the Moringa Energy Infusion teas has been an amazing and rewarding experience. I no longer worry about getting the coffee shakes or anxiety that I sometimes get from coffee. Also the tea is so much more gentle on my stomach than coffee. The taste is delicious and a great treat for the morning. Even my husband who is not a tea drinker was wowed by how great the tea taste!  His favorite was the Orange and Passionfruit and mine was the Green Tea Ginger & Lemon. The flavors are really bold and are a very enjoyable way to start the day. The ritual of preparing tea itself is so relaxing and really sets a motivating and serene mood for the day.

                                               Urang Skincare
              *This post may contain referral links and or affiliate links. Please read full disclosure.

This weeks Sunday Spotlight is focusing on a K Beauty skincare brand Urang. Urang is an amazing skincare company that incorporates aromatherapy into their products. Urang products average to be 89.3% Organic and 99.88% Natural. A couple years ago I really got into aromatherapy and I use it a lot in my daily routine. Aromatherapy has been having great mental benefits for me personally. It is truly wonderful how a scent can really help boost my mood and soothe anxiety. It is really great that Urang ties aromatherapy into skincare. Many of the essential oils that are used for aromatherapy have great skincare benefits as well. I was able to try two skincare oils and an essence from Urang for trial fee of $3.99 to review on instagram. You can check out @momswithextracents to see all my beauty and skincare reviews.

Scent: Very heavy on scent due to usage of essential oils

The Urang Vitamin Oil serum is a great multi use skincare product. I really enjoy that aromatherapy aspect of the oil and it definitely has a very strong scent from the essential oil ingredients. I really like that they use quality ingredients that are safe and mostly organic. The vitamin oil serum has myrrh and frankincense oils which are fantastic for use on skin. This product is not recommended for sensitive skin. Also some people do not like essential oils because they have a pretty potent scent so that is something to keep in mind as well. The serum is $57 which is very reasonable due to the quality organic ingredients and real frankincense oil is a more expensive oil as well which is one of the main ingredients in this.  A little goes a long way with a potent oil like this. It blends in very nicely and does not leave residue behind or an oily look to your face. I like that it absorbs so well. You can smell it after applying which to me was a nice relaxing benefit. I really do see improvement in my skin tone and my face look brighter.

🥀A lot of my favorite skin care items come from rose.  I still get acne on occasion and I am always looking for products to help.

It absorbs really well and rather quickly. It does not leave behind any residue,oily,or sticky feeling. It is really lightweight too.

This is also what gives the serum its blue color.The serum comes in a glass bottle with a dropper so you can carefully select the amount you want without wasting. This is a serum you do not want to waste! I have been using the serum by itself and I am really seeing great results. The Brightening Blue Oil Serum blends in very nicely and does not leave an oily residue behind. My skin looks very healthy and it brightens up my face for sure.
