The Mask Expert to your rescue.....


Face masks are one of my favorite skin care products I enjoy indulging in.  They’re easy to apply, fun to use and best of all,it leaves the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single use! So when I was given the chance to review and try out some masks.... you won't begin to imagine how euphoric I felt...

Face masks are the best skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns.  Good face mask can help hydrate your skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores.  They’re also an effective and amazing way to help get rid of impurities. And the best of it has to be the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home! Yes or yes???

Ok, read on and 'follow' me and check out the stuff I am trying...



Guardian, the largest pharmacy, health and beauty retail chain in Malaysia is fast getting acknowledged as the mask expert in Malaysia, and it is little wonder, thanks to its extensive and growing range of masks for face and eyes, as well as nose strips. 

 

These latest innovative offerings that many of us who work long hours with inadequate of sleep would find heaven-sent. So whenever you need or require a quick pick-me-up to look our best, reach for one of these..... 

There are two new eye mask collections and two new face mask collections — Guardian Warm Spa Eye Mask and Guardian Cute Eye Mask and the Guardian Snail Mucus Face Mask and Guardian Golden Cocoon Face Masks. Guardian also has introduced 3D Hydrogel Face Mask to complete your face beauty regimen.

I will tell you more about the eye mask in my next blog... let me share a little about the nost stripes and face mask collection first... and forgive my ugly 'mug' in this posting....


Guardian Nose Pore Strips Range

I hate blackheads but have to suffer through the indignity of having them... loads of them...

Blackheads on your nose and its vicinity are caused by the oxidation of oil and dead skin trapped in the pores of your skin. When exposed to air and other external factors, these trapped particles can become blackheads.

For a smoother and clearer looking complexion, clear blackheads and tighten pores on the nose, but resist the temptation to pick at the blackheads or whiteheads with your nails as it can cause scarring.

Guardian, Your Mask Expert, has an extensive range of nose’s pore strips to gently and effectively clear blackheads, whiteheads and tighten pores for a more polished look.


Here am I with Step 1...

So here I am trying out one of these Pore Packs...

3-Step Nose Pore Pack With this 3-Step Nose Pore Pack, having a clean nose is easy as 1-2-3. 


There is Step 1 that is a pore patch used to soften the stubborn blackheads on our noses. This product is empowered with 5 Botanical -Complex from Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, Orange and Lemon to soften impurities and prepare the skin on our for easy removal of white and black heads....

My ugly mug after finishing step 1....


Then Step 2 is a peel-of patch containing Kaolin to exfoliate and remove impurities from our nose.. it also contains Aloe Vera to moisturize and refresh the skin on our nose.....
 
Step 2 to remove all those trapped impurities...

All you have to do is wet the nose slightly then apply the smooth side of the patch covered with transparent film after removing the film, on your nose..be sure to gently press down the patch so that it sticks to your nose....

My nose looks considerably less clogged and smoother after finishing Step 2..

and leave it for 10-15 minutes... then after that, you can peel it off...and see those impurities or blackheads and white heads all on the patch....

Yucks... all the impurities on my nose are stuck on the pore strip....


The 2 Step would be to refine and sooth the pores on your nose... with the Pore-Refiner Complex patch, so you can achieve a smoother and healthier skin. 

Just remove the film covering the bio-cellulose patch and apply it to your nose area for 10-15 minutes...

Step 3 has a mild astringent feeling... as it refines the pores on our nose....

The result you get after that is a cleaner nose, smoother to touch with finer pores... I really like this pack loads.... this Guardian 3-Step Nose Pore Pack retails at RM 9.32.

There you go... looking and feeling better....

 A few days later, I tried out the 3D Hydrogel Face Mask, this one with the brightening effect..


The Guardian 3D Hydrogel Face Mask Collection consist of two variants, Moisturising and Brightening for a refreshing new era of mask innovation for more effective at home facial skincare.


Ideal for those with dry skin, the 3D Hydrogel Moisturising Face Mask gives long-lasting moisturising, soothing, smoothing and nourishing benefits for our skin to look and feel more hydrated and smooth to the touch.  

This mask also contains eco-certified Calendula extract that is known for its moisturising and soothing properties.


This collection also offers a brightening variant; the Guardian 3D Hydrogel Brightening Face Mask, which is the one I am using here for people like me who might prefer a fresher complexion. This variant brightens, moisturizes and refines for a dewier radiance. 

It contains eco-certified Bilberry extract that is known to promote skin lightening, skin refining and is enriched with anti-oxidant properties for our delicate skin.

I like that it came in two pieces which was easier to apply than the one piece one (well, at least it is how I feel as it all boils down to preferences...)

Yours truly using the 3D Hydrogel Brightening mask...
