Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask // Tea Tree.

I am here for a skin care product review!

I know I don't really pay attention to skin care stuff (because I am interested in something else) but as years pass by and I start to grow an extremely tiny line under my eyes *gasp* I now start to hunt for information about maintaining the skin well.

I don't need any extra step of beautification, I just need to have healthy skin!

And I am very lucky that my uni friend: Exxion Magasin is now providing an easy way for me to get some really good skin care products.

I tried to get myself some packs of sheet masks. And for now, I tried this:

innisfree it's real squeeze mask / tea tree
What it is:

It's real squeeze face mask made with tea tree to clear your skin!

1. It's real squeeze mask - tea tree
Tea tree is an herb traditionally known for skin care.

2. Jeju green complex
The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.

3. Triple-layered sheet
This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin.

I am really blessed! So Exxion Magasin opened the pre-order batch on weekend and was going to deliver the masks on the mid week. But I told them to deliver it to me the next next Monday.

They were so kind and agreed to my selfish request to deliver it at a later time!

Not long after I received the masks, I had an extremely bad breakouts on my chin.

What a coincidence!

It was painful to death. Even ma Ginny cannot bloody fix it.

I then grabbed the sheet mask and tried to ease the extremely irritated and inflamed breakout. So I tried the tea tree sheet mask.

Pray for V line! It is not going to happen =(

Unlike sheet masks I used before (I got use one meh? Okay, it was only for a few times), this mask is seriously so huge that my fatty round face is completely covered. Also, it is very wet *cough* that I was scared I would waste the essence.

I got the feeling that I had to make use to this watery mask and not going to waste even a single drip of the essence!

The instruction told me that I have to leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes. Although I was planning that I wanted to leave the mask on for at least 30 minutes, I needed to do something really important on laptop so I pulled the mask off on minute 11.

What a waste! I cried inside.

Also there was still way too much unused essence on the mask that I had to squeeze. And wow! The amount of essence that I could squeeze out surprised me so much! There was at least a good 20ml of essence!

I quickly put it on a small bowl and slowly dabbed the extra essence on my chin, around my nose and ears (the area of which I get inflamed breakout very often).

Lesson learnt: I will leave the sheet mask on for at least 30 minutes.

So, since I didn't have any cream to relieve my breakouts, I was only praying that it would heal fast since I don't think I used the mask long enough.

But the result surprised me!

Without any medication and by using the mask for only 11 minutes, right after I pulled the mask off, it soothed my irritation a lot. Sure, to heal the entire breakouts and bumps took time as noted before that I didn't take any cream and medication. It took me a good 8 days for my chin to appear smooth again.

So what have the sheet mask done to me?

The sheet mask helped me through my hard time of having an extremely irritation and inflamed chin. I, at least didn't have to feel pain whenever a hot soup dripped to my chin or when I had to wash my face.

I spent a good week healing breakouts on my chin without actually feeling so much pain.

Now I know and realise the importance of skin care!

I thought it was much of a troublesome routine before, but it helps me a lot through my hard time of having such pain on my chin. Especially sheet mask--the one I talk about this time--it gives me a really nice feeling.

I will not forget the importance of skin care, and I will make sure to include skin care in my routines, especially in my 20s now!

I got the generous sheet masks: innisfree from Exxion Magasin! Thank you very much!

Death talk.


Even since ah ma crossing the river last year, the talking about the crossing itself disturbs me. I think about dying way too often lately that I am scared I actually need to come to mental hospital.

My parents brought this up sometimes, and the talk itself was very disturbing I always tried to escape every time they bring this up.

That early everning on the seventh month, we all went to my ah gong and nai nai de graveyard. The graveyard looked as nobody ever came to it to tend it. And we could guess that the last relatives visiting their graveyard was, nobody but ourselves during qing ming a few months ago.

It broke my heart so much, that despite of we prayed a lot to them, we neglected their graveyard. Apparently, I sometimes remind Dad to visit ah gong's place to pray, to calm ourselves, to sweep the tomb. We happened to visit ah gong and nai nai several times this year, and we could notice that nobody else visited except us.

Dad has many siblings here, yet none of them seemed to come here no longer. It is weird, don't all of you miss them? Even me, who had to know ah gong only for a good first few years of my life (I never knew nai nai) I missed him so bad. I still remember his smells and how he always gave me kompyang every time I visited him.

Ah gong converted to Catholic a little while before his passing, and we remembered that time a man from church came to him named Father Martin. He is bald, funny and young, talked to ah gong a lot. Mum still mentions about Father Martin sometimes--I guess she meets him once in a while? I don't know. I never go to church any more since I graduated from my Catholic High School, where we were obligated to go to church twice every month.

He mentioned this once to us: when we pass away, and we will be buried, we are going to be eaten by worms. Now, if we are cremated, we stayed intact, and we are not going to be eaten.

A part of me disagree with that. How can I stand to cremate someone I love so much? Won't it be painful? So pitiful. I don't think I want to face it. I sometimes even think that I want to die before my parents do, and no human will be able to control this, unfortunately. What I can do now is to live a good life, and enjoy it as much as possible. We never know what is going to happen tomorrow, right?

Besides, they mentioned it is going to be much cheaper, and we won't burden the children having to visit us in a far and creepy graveyard every now and then. Sweeping tomb, burning houses, and many more that surely will waste money.

Mum adds: "do you understand?" and poking me.

"Uh. Okay." I said. I don't think I need to think about it now? Why do we talk about this kind of thing?

But now I know clearly, my parents against the idea of burial for themselves.

And I am not going to think about it now. Because they will be the ones that help me thinking about the names of my future children, and sis' future children, and Miki's future children!

They always think of very good names you know!

Look at this furry, extremely creepy worm I found on ah gong's graveyard. EEEEW!

Lots of love ♥
