Review: Acnes Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask

I was browsing to girls forum week ago, and everyone was talking about Acnes tea tree oil mask as: "Another cheap but great product!"  I was not too sure about it at first cuz I got an issues with acnes clearing gel and powder lotion (`ε´) (like 3 years ago, my skin is terrible TT^TT, thanks to beautycode skincare range, it's all way much much much better now..yaaay~)

ღ Product description:
Triple Action: Deep Cleansing + Oil Control + Anti-bacterial
Acnes Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask contains tea tree oil to balance oil secretion and moisture. It also helps to restore natural softness and give a healthy complexion.
- Contains tea tree oil that prevents acne. Reduce excess sebum, and keep skin moisturized.
- Deeply cleanses away dirt and excess sebum.
- Natural mineral treat skin texture.
- AC NET helps reduce excess oil secretion.
- Aloe extract keeps healthy and moisturized skin.

- Price: US $3.00
- Net: 50 gr

Tea tree oil has many wonderful properties, such as “purifying antibacterial properties and is known to help soothe blemished skin.” This product also has kaolin clay in it, which “helps control shine”, and ”deeply cleanses, drawing out impurities from the skin. Is a mineral that helps to restore the skin's natural balance”.

ღ What I say:
My first impression was good =) I've been using natural homemade-mask up till now. Acnes clay mask has a thick and smooth texture, make it easy to be applied. It feels comfortable and soothing, I enjoyed my time wearing it (just once in a week, or maybe once in two weeks...haha, depends on my skin condition). Once it gets into water, it will easily removed. I used micro fiber cloth to wipe off any excess mask. I can feel my skin is slick even when I washed it all off with water, but once you pat dry, the greasy feelings is not there anymore, all left is your soft and moisturized skin (σ・∀・)σ

Things that I like is:
-It smells nice (similar to The Body Shop tea tree mask)
-Contains natural extract (aloe and tea tree oil)
-the texture! love the thickness,'s super cheap! US 3.00 for 50gr of tea tree clay mask~

∑(。。)  What I don't like:
-contains artificial color. Blue 1 (CI 42090), and Yellow 5 (CI 19140).
I'm super strict at choosing skincare product for daily usage. If this is not a mask, I mean like daily lotion cleanser or toner. I won't ever buy it! (I've been using non parfumed, non alcohol, non preservatives, and non artificial coloring skin care product for 3 years up till now, and it did a really really great job to keep my skin in great condition)
and this is the reason why I wear it only twice/month, hehe...
Post my ugly pic wearing acnes tea tree oil clay mask....hahahahaha...feel lazy to wear any hairband. I applied it thinly, and it goes on bright green.
Overall rating: 3 out of 5!
it it has no artificial color it would be 5 out of 5.

okay, and that would be all ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ will be back with my eyeliner gel review~

#1 light
#2 medium

  • Best if you want to: Conceal blemishes without over drying skin with a handy portable stick that comes in two great shades to blend with all skin tones.
  • How it works:

You are not feel satisfied because it doesn't conceal your blemishes 100% perfectly, and then you put it on over and over again, it would cake up makes your skin looks worse.

Hanbok Collection~Update

Hello (・ω・)/
This would be a pic-spamming post, so bear with it~ hehe, I've reduced the file size for each photos, so no worries~
And well, here's my (march 2011) most favorite hanbok, princess hanbok /royal court hanbok in PINK~ with cute and glittery flowerish pattern printed on the sleeves, front, and back ♥ do you like it?

and here's  my hanbok collection that I got (february 2011)
Well, this one is a traditional green-pink hanbok for married woman,. With beautiful flowery handmade painting on the sleeve part. Made with polyester fabric

Next, a lovely pink hanbok, embroidered with beautiful pattern on jeogori. Cutest part of this hanbok is the embroidery on the chima (skirt) part, small white flowers spreads everywhere!

cute chima, isn' it?
Here's another hanbok with handmade painting on it. Creamy white jeogori with blue chima. I like this hanbok so much, but it has been sold for USD $ 85. The buyer is a doctor, and this hanbok does looks like a hanbok for doctor back then during Jeoseon dinasty (Blue chima with white jeogori (top) in royal court style).

And this one~ another classic green-pink hanbok.
It's printed and embroidered beautifully. Made with polyester fabric, I attached a white daenggi as a dress accessory (・∀・)

Jade-green jeogori (top) with red chima. Sorry, but green-red or green-pink hanbok is so classic, I like it so much~ hehe.. this hanbok got a very very regal printed pattern on the sleeve. Just like hanbok that is worn by queen during Joseon dinasty. But, this is the simple style.

lower part of otgoreum (ribbon)

Simple hanbok, white jeogori with blue bird pattern embroidered on it. I think this one is too plain, so I sent it back.

And heee ya~~~ special cute hanbok, black top, pink chima! The chima is petal type. super cute and elegant. Black and pink is a cute mix of color ( ´∀`) Do you agree?

super cute hanbok-chima
Please bear a little bit more(゜◇゜)~ this would be my last hanbok pic!
I won't sell this one, it's one of my hanbok collection. Look how cute the chima (skirt) is~ embroidered with tiny flower buds . +point is the soft gradation from peachy pink to white. Totally awesome! I love this hanbok ♡

Actually I still have tons of pic to be shown, but I'm afraid you'll get bored. So I end it here~ hehe... more hanbok pic coming soon |ヽ(*゜▽゜*)ノミ|Ю

And tell me, which hanbok do you like most?
