Baviphat Urban Dollkiss Mango Magic Brightening Mask Review! This has a ridiculously long name and a really unusual formula, and has been doing such wonders for my skin for the past two weeks that I’m going ahead and calling it a Holy Grail.
Baviphat is a Korean brand I’ve never heard of before, but this came in my monthly Beauteque beaut box, and I had a good feeling as son as I saw the cutesy packaging in my favorite color. Description: oxygenating bubbles offer a deep cleaning of skin while aloe vera extracts soothe and moisturize. Use: Apply to cleansed face and wait 2 minutes. Rinse.
Paula’s Choice is a website founded by internationally-recognized skincare expert Paula Begoun, and has both an extensive encyclopedia of ratings of skincare products on the market today, as well as their own line of skincare. I find the website useful, and I often check it before buying something, but I don’t find it the end-all-be-all – while they have a general accuracy in that they highly rate some of the brands that consumers tend to find very high-quality and effective, and which I’ve found amazing, I’ve also tried highly-rated products on PC that did absolutely nothing for me (looking at you, Olay Regenerist Eye Serum). So that’s that. The Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask was the first of their products I’ve tried.
Laneige is a branch of Amore Pacific, Korea’s largest cosmetics company, and was the first Korean brand picked up by Target. It’s quite popular in Asia and has stores in New Zealand and Canada as well as the U.S. I love Korean cleansers and was slightly familiar with the brand from having lived briefly in Korea, so I was very curious to try one of their most-recommended products, the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. Their products are based on “research into the science of water” and most utilize some form of suspended water to deliver maximum hydration. I picked this up for $21 at Target.
